I like her too. She hails from my neck of the woods, Akron, Ohio. I've caught glimpses of her a few times over the years. She looks very cool. I worked with a guy who had a band. Before The Pretenders she auditioned for his band. They turned her down. They said she wasn't 'personable' enough. We both had a good laugh at that one.

Re: Trump

Thirty years ago, my friends and I passionately protested against the Klan as they were marching down Main Street in my hometown of Marion, Virginia. Today murderous white nationalist terrorism is alive and well on our city streets. Now they walk openly armed and uncloaked, emboldened by the rhetoric and actions of bigots that have infested the upper ranks of our government, including El Douchee himself - Trumpolini. He is a pathetic human being. A liar, cheater, traitor, misogynist, racist, elitist, megalomaniac, idiot ad nauseum. He needs to be removed from office as quickly as legally possible before he destroys our nation. I renounce him as an American, as he only represents the worst traits of our culture and will lead us into oblivion if we allow it, one way or another.

Re: Trump

Yes, anyone who can't manage to directly denounce Nazis and KKK causing violence on our streets and chanting racist things has no place as president, that is certain.

Re: Trump

Trump was right to condemn "violence on many sides." No matter how hateful the white racists may be, this couldn't have happened without the counter protesters. Not an "organic group", we've seen them in action before, destroying property, endangering life. We've seen them protesting against police brutality with a brutality of their own. Their main purpose is to put a match to a tinderbox, regardless of who dies.

The solution is simple. And without trampling of freedom of speech. Protests and counter protests should not be allowed on the same day. A day apart, yes...but that should be it.

The white supremacists came with hate and an attitude and the counter protesters had their own agenda, far from peaceful. I'd like to send all of them to a fitting place.

Re: Trump

Victim blaming in the name of free speech, Druidic? ####ing repulsive. One of my comrades at my university was there and got plowed into by Fields. Quit entertaining this false dichotomy. You're apologizing for domestic terrorism.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Trump

Druidic, I am not sure you are in a position to speak. You said you would back Trump until he "pressed the red button" and even backed down on that statement and have said you would support him starting a nuclear war. So you will defend Trump no matter what he does, as you yourself have stated. No, it wasn't "all sides" who created this situation. It was the racists marching in Charlottesville. Anyone who says anything else at this point is basically no patriot, because they are descending to having Nazis, who we lost hundreds of thousands of soldiers fighting in WWII, as now the new normal.

Re: Trump

Trump's HATRED ON MANY SIDES statement was loathsome. False equivalency to an epic degree.

Yes, some activists on the left have been violent towards white supremacists/Nazis, but the white supremacists/Nazis literally favor racial/ethnic cleansing and despise everyone who doesn't have pale skin. The activists on the left hate... the white supremacists/Nazis.

Even Mike freaking Huckabee called out the white nationalists/Nazis today and put the blame for this weekend's violence squarely on their shoulders. The fact that Trump can't bring himself to do the same is pathetic. But not surprising, considering this crew adore him and chant "Heil Trump" in their rallies and marches. He is a shameful blight on this country.

Re: Trump

I never said I would support a nuclear war, no matter who started it. A nuclear war is madness. Read my posts. My remark about "the red button" was a joke but the Left doesn't seem to have a sense of humor these days.

I'm not blind to the truth or to facts and never let personal feelings get in the way of judgement. Can you say the same?

The counter protesters were the willing match to the alt-right's powder keg. I stand by my solution to this madness.

Not on the same day.

Re: Trump

Trump loves to insult a whole range of people and entities, often those who don't deserve it, but White Supremacists/Nazis and Vladimir Putin have typically gotten an unusually explicit pass from him. The reasons are clear to me.

Re: Trump

Honestly, Doctor, I don't believe in giving the most despicable excesses and fevers of the alt-right a free pass. Quite the opposite. But Putin? Any hope of detente is through that guy and we ought to treat him with the respect that a head of state usually deserves.

But then, according to Brendan, I'm a nuclear warmonger so what do I know?
