Would the people controlling the party prefer a Republican in the Oval Office or Bernie Sanders? Bernie would blow up Wall Street's influence. Probably to the detriment of the country.DocVOLiday wrote: . Surely the party bosses do not think it is good for them to keep losing?
So Mr "bone spur" draft dodger feels like he would be GI Joe. Riiiiiiiiiight."I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too," Trump told a group of state governors gathered at the White House for talks on multiple issues.
I feel like this is the part where Trump the Populist whips the DNC's ass.Parscale is one of the few people to have worked alongside Trump since the earliest days of his primary campaign in 2015. New to politics, he approached campaign advertising as he had buying digital ads for commercial clients in Texas, where he spent the majority of his career.
This unconventional background received scrutiny from both sides of the aisle during the election cycle. In August 2016, headlines skeptically noted that while the Clinton campaign had already spent $52 million on television ads, the Trump campaign had spent precisely zero on television. In Republican campaign circles, some critics viewed Parscale’s political inexperience as a liability that could set the party back.
But as history books will show, Parscale’s digital-first approach created an entirely new playbook for how campaigns could be run far more economically, but with even greater reach, via platforms like Facebook. The strategy was born in part by instinct and in part by necessity; the campaign ran on a shoestring budget, with Trump not soliciting donations until after he had clinched the Republican party's nomination. By election day, however, the Trump campaign had drastically outspent the Clinton campaign in Facebook advertising.
As Parscale told WIRED shortly after the election, "Facebook and Twitter were the reason we won this thing. Twitter for Mr. Trump. And Facebook for fundraising."
Show your respect comrades!Amid repeated protests during the playing of the national anthem over the past two seasons, the NFL on Wednesday passed a revised policy that mandates players and team personnel present on the sideline “shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”
That may be the most comical post ever. every sentence incorrect basically. but comical.DocVOLiday wrote: One other thing I want to add just since the door has been opened is I truly wonder what it will take for the right to be happy. Almost all of the people I know on facebook are hardcore Trump supports. That is probably true for most of us from the South. They have won, absolutely and completely. They control all branches of government. They have destroyed the Clintons. They have destroyed political correctness. They have destroyed any person who thought gun regulation was a good idea after all these school shootings. With Betsy Devos they are destroying public education (something the right has abhorred for awhile). Any regulation on corporations pertaining to the environment or preventing another economic collapse have been removed. Pretty much anything Obama accomplished has been destroyed and his legacy is getting erased daily, the Iran deal being only the most recent example . They have Democrats on the ground boot on their neck begging mercy. Yet, they are still sooooo angry. I try to go on Facebook every now and then and every single post is just over the top angry still focusing on Hillary, or gun regulation, or the Department of Justice. I just pulled it up on another tab and just today am seeing a video Sean Hannity talking about the country being at a tipping point. A meme of Nancy Pelosi stating "Veterans health care bill blocked? Sorry, illegals first." Another post stating how people protesting for illegal immigrant babies should have to take one home. Numerous posts by some redneck named Chad Prather wearing a cowboy hat sitting in his truck berating political correctness because treating someone with respect is for pussies. Seriously, all that is just what pops up immediately on my Facebook page. What is it going to take to make the Trump crowd happy? Can they only succeed by constantly feeling like the underdog? What a bunch of snowflakes.
Seriously? I think I'll just pass on a discussion after that comment.DocVOLiday wrote: I will wait until you go to Fox News so they can tell you how to think...
I follow the Supreme Court, and I don't think Roe vs Wade being overturned is even remotely possible. First, I don't think there is any support on the current Court to do this. Second, Trump talks a lot but his actions are always different. Gorsuch never took a stand on abortion and it's becoming more and more likely that he is not anti-abortion. fwiw, generally anti-abortion judges are very religious.DocVOLiday wrote:
Oh, and speaking of the Supreme Court, it is firmly political now (something our forefathers never intended) and it will be firmly Republican for the rest of my life at least. Abortion is either toast or about to be severely limited (another reason Trump will win re-election because that will make him a god to his supporters.
I doubt we see a roll back of gay marriage, but like above we might see organizations not having to give spousal benefits to gay couples.I am not sure they will roll back gay marriage but I am sure it will be discussed. All the new letter people the LGBTQ keeps adding (I think the list is up to 76) are probably not going to see any official recognition in our lifetime which part of me things it is getting a little ridiculous anyway and I am a pretty open minded person.
I definitely think we will see a lot of gun control legislation struck down.Guns will probably be included in Happy Meals now (seriously though, this supreme court will ensure no gun regulation will ever occur). The environment is screwed.
Yeah, I know you don't like him. I'm sorry if I made it sound like you loved him.Buckeye Nut wrote: Do you guys understand I can't stand Trump?
