The Trump theme, here and many other places, is that "We've Done Nothing, Deal With It", and it's sibling "We've Actively Screwed You Over, Deal With It".

The True Believers, of course, vote for their Fuhrer regardless. No TV adds needed.

Anyone less fanatical is flipping out that he can't pay the rent next month, and wonders why Trump thinks he can develop a new career and paycheck in thirty days.

And when they ask me later why I recommended such a crappy cake, I will accuse them of "following me around" and stomp off

We need millions of Americans to tell Trump to go find another country to live in. We do not want that scum here. I suspect Putin will let him go there, so just go the F to Russia Trump.

"The True Believers, of course, vote for their Fuhrer regardless. No TV adds needed."

Americans should look to history and how Hitler was elected. He was popular but there always was a strong opposition which is similar to us hated liberals today. At the end of WWII when Hitler and the Nazis were defeated and Germany was in ruins and apologizing to the world for the Holocaust there were millions of Germans who had supported, even cheered for Hitler who would say things like, "we didn't know." Today, here in America, I just want to tell all you Trump supporters to forget about such excuses when Trump is finally removed, forcibly if necessary, from power, don't you dare try selling such a lame excuse. You know. We've informed you on every issue. You have no excuses. Trump just appointed a card carrying Nazi back to his administration but none of you are even disturbed by that. I have to wonder, what the hell is wrong with you people?

When unemployed Americans leave the job market to go back to school or enter some other training program, the unemployment rate goes down. But I'm sure that had nothing to do with Assistant Vice President Barbie's new program...

Danni,

Democrats are problematic in their own ways.

If we choose not to vote republican, the only real other choice that is actually viable is democrat and that party has made some serious missteps such as openly and deliberately antagonizing Christians and support for issues that are contrary to moral sensibilities of many people such as lack of nationalism and their view of constitutional rights.

This isn't so cut and dry.

Democrats have been working overtime to be the offensive party and now people are deeply offended by leftist ideas.

It's really funny how I've noticed over the years democrats accuse republicans of only caring about money yet how much they go on and on about money too.

There's a lot more to life than money. I work in accounting and I see just how much it is part of everything we do.

Sadly, it has had a lot to do with corrupting Christianity. Jesus knew it. He knew just how much money corrupts people.

Really...you think getting a check for $1200 is a reason to support democrats? Is it that easy to get a democrat vote?

Baloney. Virtually all former Democratic Preidents were Christians, most Democrats are Christians. Virtually all Democrats are patriotic Americans. Republicans have developed a scheme to pretend that they represent Christian values and patriotism. It's a lie on both. They have captured Evangelical Christians on divisive issues like gay marriage, abortion, women's rights, etc. but Evangelical Christians do not represent the majority of Christians in this country at all. Their wars where they claimed to be representing patiotic values were all disasters which cost lives and treasure but accomplished nothing but millions of dead Iraqis or Vietnamese. How can any real Christian support such wars? Don't ever tell me Republicans have Christian values again, Jesus would never be a Republican. He threw the money changers out of the temple while the conservatives (Republicans) on the SC just let them back in.

Byrd,

"I have a cousin that was in the closet until he was 35"

I was never in a closet.

After being sexually active since 10th grade, I dropped out of high school and joined the Navy. I was eventually outed after boot camp when I was seen coming out of a gay bar by men I worked with.

When I was still in the Navy I met and became friends with Leonard Matlovich who was in the Air Force. I knew Leo the summer of 1975. He was being processed for a discharge when I knew him. I didn't have the full picture at the time. I just knew he was fighting back. Eventually he won and became the first active duty gay man to fight the military and win. That was prior to Don't Ask Don't Tell. That was back when it was simply, "no gays allowed". I knew him when he got on the cover to Time magazine.

About that same time, the MAA's called me in for questioning. Two months later I was out.

About a month later I ended up living with the Pastor of an MCC church in a large city and started college.

I ended up moving to a smaller city and became friends with a young girl and eventually we became lovers and got married. That was decades ago.

You can be sure it was not easy living dual lives and living with the conflict of needing both.

You see....I knew the gay world pretty well and met many people. I saw that a parade of men in and out of my life wasn't making me happy.

This girl made me happy and she still does. Actually better now than ever. She's just a wonderful good human being and we enjoy each other.

No...I was never in a closet.

Over the years I have seen time and again how God was there for me and I owe Him everything.

But it was my choices.

I don't wear rose colored glasses about the gay lifestyle however I'm not some gay hating Christian either.

So..there it is.

I would NEVER tell someone they should stay in the closet.

And I would NEVER tell someone they should come out.

It is their choice.

It does bother me the attitude some liberals have that people are being dishonest if they don't come out.

It's no one else's business.

Sometimes I just think liberals need other people to agree with them to justify their beliefs.

I also think a lot of atheist liberals use gays to promote their anti-Christian agenda and don't really care about gay people.

They wouldn't be so callous about "coming out" if they really understood what it is or really cared about gays and not just promoting some political agenda.

I don't know if dishonest would be the word I would use but I can't see how a person can feel free or happy if they hide such a major part of their life. Nobody has the right to tell someone they don't deserve to be happy just because they aren't like them. I gave up on church several years ago because it was so agenda driven. The whole Idea of heaven doesn't make any sense. They condemn a same sex couple for loving who they do but say the people that hate them get to go to heaven. I'd rather not go either if it's going to filled with a bunch of hateful people.

One more story.

I knew a conservative Christian support group many years ago that ran a HA Homosexual Anonymous group.

After a couple of visits, I saw they were a 12 step program.

First... I really didn't like I wasn't allowed to know anyone's name but...I guess that the HA part.

Second...they told me I am now straight....hmm...really? I am straight because I don't have sex with men? Really?? Are you serious...this is a support group?

A group of about 12 guys..I asked the leader.

"if a smoker doesn't have a cigarette for a month, are they a non-smoker or just a smoker that hasn't had a cigarette in a month?"

I got real dirty looks and an aggressive tone and still remember, "different people deal with this in different ways"....

I grew up in bu***hit evangelical Christianity. The problem with it is they ignore the words of the namesake of Christianity, conveniently focusing on Old Testament BS and the Apostle Paul, who never knew Jesus in His lifetime.

Today, I refer to myself as a 'red print Christian' - i.e. the words Christ is said to have spoken. A good philosophy to live by. And "spiritual" rather than religious. Mankind has messed up the messages of most of the world's religions to suit their own ends.

1. I haven't had a cigarette in about 12 years. Am I still a smoker?

2. I quit smoking because smoking is bad for your health. Loving a person isn't bad for your health.

Well, if you choose the wrong person it will be bad for you, like say you're Melania and you pick the same man Ivana and Marla Maples picked. But that has nothing to do with gender, and everything to do with chatacter.

BillJohnson, if you were
1. in the Navy and
2. gay,
then you were definitely in the closet, since that would have got you kicked out up until a few years ago.

Snoofy,

"I haven't had a cigarette in about 12 years. Am I still a smoker?"

No...you're a non-smoker. I smoked 7 years and quit.

"Well, if you choose the wrong person it will be bad for you"

I tried to be nice to you but you just can't help your trolling ways. I don't like your implication.

Don't play..."who..me???...I'm not a troll"

Good bye.....

I'm not saying you did that.
I'm saying all three of Trump's wives did that.
They would have been better off marrying nearly anyone else. Including another woman.

There's just no reason gays shouldn't live and love as freely as straight people, or bisexuals such as yourself.

"I knew a conservative Christian support group many years ago that ran a HA Homosexual Anonymous group."

What was even the point of such a group?

What are they supporting, since conservative Christians think gays deserve to die from AIDS as punishment for the sin of being gay. Was it just a pity party? Cover for a hook-up situation?

One of my best friends as a kid was the preacher's kid at our church. He'd come over about once a month between Sunday morning and evening services and we'd eat dinner and play. Kept in touch with him for many years.

His dad, the minister, railed against gays often. Greg was gay and died from AIDS about 10 years ago.

I wondered how his dad felt about it THEN. We've all read about this Republican or that who decried gays .. until their son or daughter came out, then they were all for equal rights and all.

American,

"I wondered how his dad felt about it THEN"

I suspect he will find it difficult to get through the 5 stages of grief and loss.

1. Denial and isolation
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

He will be forbidden to express his feelings on the subject with most of his friends and family due to political constraints.
