mrfish: Proves that there is no such thing as white privilege and that in reality there is something that should be called black privilege. Obama got a big award for showing up to work and smiling, while Trump actually accomplishes something substantial and no one is likely to give him any kind of award at all. That's how the real world works. Those who do all the work get taxed and the lazy and worthless get their money for free! When working people complain they're demonized by the press and shamed for having the audacity to believe that everyone should be required to pull their own weight!

Well put Crusty. I'm starting to feel like Trump has them against the ropes. He should give them a good pummeling.

I only came across this week old video yesterday but watching it made me feel good.


Congress ORDERS THE TRACK DOWN of Loretta Lynch, Hillary clinton & James Comey

Who knows. Maybe we will see some of these guys locked up before this thing is over!

I too would like to see them offer Trump the N. peace prize. Even better would be Trump refusing to accept it after it being tainted by the act of giving one to Obama, unless they revoke his first!

Nobel Peace Prize? I don't know. Bombing Syria on two occasions based on false pretenses might disqualify him. He had to know that Syria didn't use chemical weapons and although he may have good strategic reasons for what he did, he still acted in an manner which is ethically questionable.

On the contrary. It seems as if the more damage you do the greater your chances of being awarded the prize. I'm surprised Hitler never won one though I believe he was nominated for it.

Fair point, but my guess is that those on the Nobel Prize committee probably think that bombing Syria was a good thing. Not implying anything about their likely religious affiliation, but there's little doubt about that.

What kind of proof does one need to verify the gassing? Granted I have only seen news reports showing sick people who appear to be suffering symptoms. Then again I have only seen commentators and late night talk shows say it was made up. CNN also but, who cares what they say. So where can I get factual accounts of what happened that some of you have to verify that Syria did not use gas. I am looking for facts, not assumptions. I need to get educated so I can comment honestly and correctly.

Just look at the Did Syria Use Chemical Weapons? thread. It's filled with all sorts of videos that I find convincing. You're never going to get irrefutable evidence of anything, but if you sort through the conflicting stories it's not that hard to figure out who's lying and who's telling the truth. People, including doctors, who appeared in the original video have been interviewed and they say that the whole thing was staged. They were ambushed by a bunch of people with cameras insisting that there was a chemical attack and the people in the medical facility responded at first, but then figured out what was going on. By then the people with the cameras had what they wanted.
