I just love how news sites on both sides of the argument show a still photo of a video and tell you their spin on the video only talking about the points that make their case yet never show you the video!

I'm sick of the whole business. left and right.
Yesterday I rolled down my window and asked a guy nicely to not tailgate me so closely, I can't go any faster as there were cars in front of me. He reply was to tell me to shut up or he would shoot me in the face. Nice world we live in.
If someone did that to me I would call the police and I would have the whole exchange on camera. I have three running constantly.

It's called sedition and punishable by law. Maxine is on record making racist comments as well. She's never done anything of any consequence for her constituents except convince them they are all victims. She needs her wigs taken away at the least and jail time at the most.

Miles, while I agree she isn't the most appealing representative I don't believe she was inciting violence. I might be annoyed too if she was in my backyard.

Also, The U.S. Declaration of Independence states that "when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government"

Jackra: I was down in Maine the last few days. This is the second time reference has been made to my Canadian license plates. Mr Trump has certainly stirred the pot and brought hatred to the surface. I take threats of gun violence very seriously knowing that Maine is an open carry and a non-permit concealed weapon state. Had he shown me the weapon or followed me I would have reported him. I bought a dash cam a couple years ago but my wife insisted I get rid of it as I was obsessively posting bad driver behavior on youtube.

It should be a clown suit, so people also remember not to take anything they say seriously.

Say what? Encouraging mobs to harass people isn't inciting violence? You call that peaceful protests?

As an Englishman I spent a lot of time in Southern Ireland as my wife then was Irish. I felt safer there than here in MD as the area I live in is primarily trump supporting. A local restaurant here, that I used to frequent, has older white men spewing racist vitriol now as they down beer after beer and still drive!

My wife's (then) parents were old IRA and were told by the "new" IRA that I would be ok to travel in Southern Ireland but NOT to get married there.

Were the "Old IRA" the good ones?

Nothing changed in NI.
A mate of mine has recently married a Belfast girl. She knows the truth.

Carry on.

My ex wife was born in Dundalk she knows the truth.

NORAID was the prime funder of the terrorist organization, the IRA, that carried out indiscriminate bombings in London in the 70s
when I worked in central London. I heard one, of the many, explode while walking from a multistory carpark to work.

Many eminent Americans were perfectly ok with this.

One mans terrorist is another mans hero.

Just remember if you have views about terrorism that many Americans have supported a terrorist organization killing innocent men, women , and children.

In my history lessons at school in the 60's in England the Great Famine in Ireland was given no mention at all.

Where starting in 1845 and lasting several years about one million people starved to death and another million emigrated from Ireland..

Virtually no aid was given by the English landlords who still expected to make their usual profits.

So some level of animosity among the Irish is to be expected.

These politic pundits....both sides....rely on manufactured outrage to increase ratings. Cherry-picked 'facts', out-of-context quotes, telling just one side of the story, etc are the tools of their trade. The public gobbles it up.

People complain that we've become polarized but refuse to seek out the other side to the story....or even admit another side of the story might exist. Anything that might mitigate their outrage is rejected outright.

I'm sick of the whole business. left and right.
I'm convinced that the best thing for the USA would be for everyone to turn off their radios and TVs and actually start talking to each other again. Pundits are poisoning us.

I know a fellow who listens to a particular radio show. Two conservative opinionators doing nothing but complaining about and disparaging liberals for two hours each morning, five days a week. Every topic is discussed only from an anti-liberal perspective. Without fail. If the topic doesn't really have a left-right conflict, they'll make sure to manufacture one.

Anyone listening day after day, month after month surely develops a lop-sided view of events.

And, yes, I know there are liberal pundits out there doing the same thing.

It's poison. And people keep asking for more. When will we stop?

Yesterday I rolled down my window and asked a guy nicely to not tailgate me so closely, I can't go any faster as there were cars in front of me. He reply was to tell me to shut up or he would shoot me in the face. Nice world we live in.
Lots of anger out there over many things...magnified by pundits and politicians telling us we should be angry and who we should be angry at. It's the tail wagging the dog.

Cheers
DD

Why are certain republicans, Gowdy for one who took 2 1/2 years on the Benghazi investigation with zero indictments,so desperate to undermine Mueller's investigation at this point in time? Much more frenzied than ever before.

If there is nothing to hide why this heightened level of frenzy?

Has it something to do with Manaforte testifying in front of a Grand Jury next month?

Maybe Roger Stone will be interviewed by Mueller very soon?

Also MANY more Russian contacts are coming to light around the trump inauguration quite a few with special invites to private trump parties immediately after the inauguration.

Default Liberal Family Values, etc.

Two months ago, the left wing socialists hero was a **** star. Last month, they went from freaking out about babies being separated from their parents and this month to freaking out about the Supreme Court taking away a woman's right to kill her babies
Wait, it gets better.
All left wing socialists (including news media) are blaming Pres. Trump's "immigration policies" for this family separation. WRONG.
Pres. Clinton initiated this policy and the left wingers were dead silent.
Pres. Obama continued this policy and again the left wingers were silent.
Pres. Trump carries thru with the SAME policy and he's a bigot, racist, homophobe, criminal, etc.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was NOT the one separating families, it was the Border Patrol.
The socialists are complaining about these families being separated, but all the while ignoring the families being separated with mommy and or daddy incarcerated in prisons and jails across the country.
Left wingers dead silence.
OR how about military mommy and or daddy being deployed to destinations unknown and their kids wailing away at the airport and dockside.
Left wingers, dead silent.

There are none so blind as those who will not see..

If a Republican does it,it is bad. If a Democrat does it, it is good. That is all it amounts to, no more no less.

As long as the MSM remains Liberal biased that's what you'll see/hear. Times are a changing.

Can I just say how much I enjoy watching Trey Gowdy in action. Brutal! I like his style. I watched him trying to get answers from some ex fbi man who couldn't have looked much more demonic even with red eyes. His name was Stotzkls summat or other. Nasty pos.
