the ones who voted to put the man in the White House
are given the label simple minded
personally I wear that label
with pride
for goodness sake
rather be simple minded
than just one more lackey for
Hillary Rodham Clinton
I am not about to go into all the reasons
that Trump made sense to me
rather than  the Clinton team
America wanted change
from corrupt politicians and we got it
after the election
after the swearing in
and the days after
the president was surprised
at the viciousness
of the attacks on him
was heard to say
After the election I thought everyone
would pull together

eh, I suppose that was a
simple minded thing to say

Yes it was. Point fingers any direction you want. Until his people are willing to be honest about his behavior and voice truth to power we will continue to have the blundering chaos we have in the White House now. It is not a matter of my candidate didn't get elected and I can't get over it. I'm worried about wild haired decisions that no one can seem to control. ~L

Everyone want to point out what could, might, or will happen while he is presient. Could be some paranoia going on, Lori.

My head is not in the sand, Lori, I'm still a Trump man. So his language is not the polished language of a sophisticated  and  suave politican, personally I find that refreshing.

Discussing politics is toxic.  We all have an opinion which we are entitled to

I don't know anyone who does want to die like that, Blues. I sure don't.

I do not like to back and forth with political issues. I voted the way I did, you voted the way you did, Lori and Blue, why in the world can't we just leave it at that?

I agree with you, Jerry, for many reasons. I happen to know a couple of Marines that were in Benghazi when that mess started. One who was across the street from the compound. They were told to leave their weapons behind and put on a plane out of there. Trump may not have been my first choice for President but I would have voted for almost anybody to get rid of Obama and the Clinton crime cartel.

Let's look at this objectively. There's something you (and everyone else) should know... Trump appointed someone for a very important decision making position related to your Internet access and here's what's happened so far:

Well now all that sounds very up  close and personel, Cerulean. Guess we will have to wait and see how it all plays out.

I'm with you, Jerry. I Like my info. short, sweet and to the point. If it's too complicated. it is meant to confuse.

Marchmadness: are you talking about my reply #11, Trump's language, articles, the media, or what? Sorry, a bit confused as to what you're referring to in reply #13.

Marchmadness- oh, you had two replies (#10 and #13) earlier in this thread. I was referring to your reply #13. Look where it shows "13 posted 08-05-2017"

I'm curious if that reply where you said "If it's too complicated. it is meant to confuse." had to do with my reply #11, the articles I linked to, Trump's language, the media, or what? You're not clear on which one you were referring to.

Which one was it? Thanks.
