Donald Trump increased the federal debt by $8 trillion but his supporters are calling President Biden's recovery plan "Build Back Broke." If Trump's political supporters were any worse at math they'd be shareholders in Trump Steaks.

Are you hoping for a recession?

Meanwhile the leader of today's "American" "conservativism" speaks at CPAC in Dallas next week: Viktor Orban.

You're saying, that I claimed that poll means America loved Trump.

When I posted this..."america hated him, and for good reason."

I posted that America hated him for good reason. The way you interpret that, is that I'm saying America loves him.

Jim: America hated him, and for good reason
WDMSO: you're saying america loves Trump

I can't tell if you're truly this stupid, or just unbelievably dishonest. It's one or the other, there certainly isn't a third option.
You're saying, that I claimed that poll means America loved Trump.

Oh so now your honesty suggesting thatís not what you were suggesting every time youíve said that!

Ya ok. Ps I am however better of then I was 20 years ago. But thatís on me

you are so slow itís unbelievable.

for the 1000th time. America, for the most part, liked his policies. Thatís the only conclusion to be drawn from that poll I cite.

At the same time, America, for the most part, hated him as a person. Nobody denies his deep ethical and behavioral flaws.

Do you not grasp that thereís a difference between being good at your job, and being a good person?

almost biden slow.....

remember trump was pounded by the press and pete every day for four years plus...that will eventually show up in polls...


brandon has been boosted by the press etc...every day since before he was elected and that is reflected in the polling as well...which means his actual approval rating is probably single digits...

Youíre nuts
Bidenís been both sided since the start of his administration

But your hero Donald Trump brags about botching the covid pandemic, says he "listened to Fauci" and "did the opposite" of whatever the esteemed doctor suggested ó which explains why 425,000 died of covid under Trump.

In the last few WEEKS, the GQP has said f you to:
- Women
- Members of the LGBTQIA+ community
- Veterans
- Mother Earth
- School children (some of whom will soon enough be the product of forced births)

Simultaneously, it has hugged:
- Guns

A national abortion ban would result in a 24% increase in deaths for all women and a 39% increase in deaths for non-Hispanic Black women. There is nothing pro-life about Republicansí forced-birth movement.

Pregnancy is 14 times more likely to result in a womanís death than an abortion; and the states outlawing abortion right now already have the highest rates of infant and maternal mortality due to high levels of poverty, limited access to healthcare, and refusal to expand Medicaid.

Forced-birth laws will not save any lives. They will just kill more women and create ripple effects of trauma and devastation throughout society. None of this is about life. The same people pushing forced birth laws also want to outlaw contraception and sex education.

The first sentence of the 1st Amendment states that no law will be made respecting an establishment of religion. SCOTUSí overturning of Roe was flagrantly unconstitutional and this court of religious ideologues has absolutely zero legitimacy.

Women will not tolerate this; nor should they. The issue isnít when life or conception begins. Itís who should make decisions about womenís bodies: women themselves or governments. And there is no debate. Women should make these decisions for themselves. Not the government.

you dodged my question naturally. when you were an unborn child, would
you prefer forced birth or abortion.

If there were a nationwide abortion ban, how many babiesí lives would be saved?

( 1 it will save a million lives a year.

(2) believing abortion is a state issue, is not part of any religion that i know of.

(3) the question of when life begins, is literally all that matters, because everyone, including you, are ok with laws that prevent women from using their bodies in a way that hurts someone else! you and i both agree on that. so the only question, is when the baby constitutes someone else.

Itís still based on religion, Alito said as much in Rome.

If forced birth believers were really for life the fact that at 17.4/100k maternal mortality in the US is already a disgrace.
The rest of the developed world for example the UK 6.5 and France 7.6.
Within parts of the US we're talking 3rd World levels, Louisiana 58.1, Georgia 48.4.

You think now those numbers will improve?
Weíll be lucky if they donít quadruple in Red states in the Deep South.

he said no such thing in Rome. he talked about two different topics

I donít like the idea of 9 unelected judges getting to decide for all of us, what they think the constitution means. That isnít any kind of religious argument.
