    Because Conservatives are moral and righteous and liberals are cowards.

    I think it's funny how conservatives are still fascinated by a losing politician from half a year ago. I don't recall Reagan talking about Mondale in 1985. Or Clinton talking about bush in 1993. Or Bush talking about Gore in 2001.

    I don't see the attraction, but maybe Trump has a crush on her. He can't be with the same woman for more than a decade or so at a time. Time to trade in Melania?

    Trump had nothing to do with the shooting --- it was a liberal Bernie Supporter. So she should blame Bernie to be accurate --- or to follow the advice in your post - stop politicizing crime. I mean YOU did make that plea - only to be betrayed by one of your own.

    Liberal murderers are driven by their political hatred.

    Incorrect to blame Trump for this one - especially since Trump its WAAAAAY more popular and respected in the Middle East than Obama (weak groveling piece of shit he was). Trump got their respect by being honest and frank. Even the drooling Libs on CNN thought his speech was good.

    Plus Trump pulled in over $400 BILLION in trade deals.

    Seems its Trump who gets along with the Muslims - not the liberals.

    She didn't say Trump did it. She said the shooting was in "Trump's America." Just like everything in the 80s was in "Reagan's America" (well, all but 2 years). That is factually true. If we win the gold medal in the Olympic it is in "Trump's America." The good, the bad, the ugly, we live in "Trump's America," for better or worse.

    If we get out of debt and everybody is making $100,000/year you'll be the first to say it was due to Trump's leadership (or Trump's America).

    Wrong again. Most of us don't care about her. She was a flawed, at best, candidate. Should have been Bernie, but that's neither here nor there right now. We are concerned that Trump got elected by Russian interference, he fired the director of the FBI investigating his Russian ties, has a son in law who made a back channel to talk with the Russians, and gave Russians classified information in the Oval Office. Makes you wonder what Russia has on him. Hmmm...

    Tim Wise was spot on:

    Let's face it, these white rural voters never thought Trump would go after government programs that help THEM, because for 50 years they have been encouraged to believe that big gubmint is just for "those people" and that when programs have to be cut it will be for "those people" who are undeserving, and black and brown. They don't even realize how much they benefit from government, or if they do, they view it differently than programs that aid folks of color, or folks in cities, because they've swallowed the biggest racist lie in the past half century.

    This is why it is folly to divorce the issue of racial resentment from the issue of economic "anxiety" or community/economic hardship. To the extent these kinds of folks think their taxes are too high to support "those people," their economic anxiety (over taxes) is racialized anxiety. To the extent they want to preserve programs for salt of the Earth folks like themselves, while gladly slashing programs that they perceive (rightly or wrongly) mostly support those who are racially and culturally unlike themselves, their bromides about the size of government are neither innocent, nor mere libertarian musings about the proper role of the feds versus the states, or government versus the private or charitable sector. They are about white rage (Carol Anderson's term), racial resentment and a desire to maintain the cultural, political and economic supremacy of white people.

    Cool story bro. Any evidence that any of that is true or is that just how you think poor white people think?

    I can't claim the quote. I didn't say it, however I see where he is coming from. I would have preferred he use the word "some" before "white people." You need to say "some" before any group of people (college graduates, people from a certain state, people in a certain age group, etc.) because there are always exceptions.

    But I know for absolute fact that there are some white people who make below the poverty line who think they are entitled to government assistance (which is correct) but "other" people, read minorities, are "moochers." I have a friend who is absolutely that way and then some, so he and I have discussions all the time.

    There is a percentage of Americans who truly believe in smaller government, less regulation, smaller budget, etc. And that is a fair discussion to have. Then, there are a group of people who don't like the fact somebody named "Barack," much less a minority, was in the White House. Those are the conservative racists. The first group are the true conservatives. The racists and Obama haters (not Obama policy haters - there is a difference) make the first group of conservatives look bad.

    This doesn't excuse generalizing an entire group of people, any more than it's fair to say "liberals are crooks." You can say some liberals are crooks, and that is a fair statement, but to imply all is a problem. Just like saying "conservatives are racists" isn't a fair statement. Saying some conservatives are racists is fair.

    Or, maybe it's just semantics and me on my snowflake, tree-hugger soapbox.

    1) Scientists misreading the evidence, confusing correlation, cause and effect – and then, long before the science is sufficiently mature to warrant it, leaping to alarmist conclusions

    2) Scientists then exaggerating the risks (and suppressing uncertainties and contradictory evidence) in order to attract government funding to investigate the potential scare properly

    3) Journalists hyping the potential scare in order to drum up public alarm (and sell newspapers)

    4) The public, unable to understand the science, over-reacting and clamoring for political action

    5) Politicians, unable to understand the science, over-reacting and responding to public alarm by rushing in ill-considered policies to mitigate the perceived risks

    6) Politicians increasing scientific funding in order to find more evidence in support of the scare in order to confirm the rightness of their policies

    7) Scientists duly supplying more evidence in order to attract further government funding (this evidence being used by journalists to drum up even more public alarm)

    8) A rising awareness by scientists that the problem is actually much more complex (and the causes much more ambiguous and uncertain) than they originally surmised – and, anyway, far less risky

    9) A rising awareness by the public and politicians that the risks have been exaggerated and the scare is not materializing – and the policies have done, and are doing, more harm than good

    10) Scientists, journalists and politicians quietly retreating from association with the scare

    11) The scare fading from the public consciousness

    Today we are at about point (8).

    Hey remember when conservative comedians held up a mock severed head of Obama?....... Oh wait....

    Now WaPo reports that Turmp's 11 year old son is having a hard time dealing with this.

    Great Job Liberals --- your pathology and deep seeded psycho9logical problems with anyone who has a valid policy disagreement with you that happens to win an election will cost you.

    THIS is the face and clear picture of the liberal progressives in the United States today. Its matched by violent riots where liberals assault conservatives and open Trump supporters -- using tear gas, beating with sticks and throwing bike locks at people's heads.

    This is you.

    I saw the Kathy Griffin picture. It is despicable. It is 100% wrong, no wiggle room. Yes, it's protected by free speech, but it doesn't make it right. She has given ignorant people the excuse to say this proves all liberals condone violence. Trump is a racist xenophobe who is in over his head, but I would never wish him to be assaulted, much less what is in the picture.

    Sort of like how the public is unable to understand any of the fears Trump stoked up?

    I give Trump credit for one thing, he knows how to throw out red meat to his disciples.
