The average person just does not care from what I see. They are more concerned which bathroom a teeny tiny % of the population is peeing in, how many free money trees they will get, and having cradle to grave Government oversight of their lives. I mean how would anyone get by with out the Government holding their hand every step of the way!!! And remember "You didn't build that, some one else did that for you!" Obama
And remember, Donald Trump got caught talking guy talk with another guy. Far,far more serous than selling access, compromising security, getting people killed, campaign ethics violations...
I said worse today.
What...no Aussies or Canucks in yet to tell us why this is wrong from their superior perspective? It's been 2 hours.
There's no help for folks with inferiority complexes.
I know...it is still rather irritating putting up with y'all though.
I know....there's nothin' more irritatin' than an echo chamber with one or three echoes that aren't in synch with all the rest. Pax, I love you like a brother...but like brothers, there's always somethin' that'll get on one's wick...in the scheme of things...it's a minor irritation, more than compensated by other worthwhile things.
I have two brothers...one a right wing conservative Yaweh, "wrath of god" Christian ...the other a more "liberal" "Jesus meek and mild" Christian...being the atheist, I tend to fall into the role of peacemaker between the two, in their theological, and world view debates.
Pax....I feel for your frustration, but value you for all of the positive things that you represent as a brother SMonkey, and an American.
So, Go be a local Peacemaker, and leave the USA Politics to those that can VOTE....
It doesn't require voting eligibility to kibitz politics.....any more than not having a gun license disbars one from kibitzing about guns. Anyway, not being an eligible voter in countries other than the USA hasn't deterred US SM citizens from expressing opinions about the politics of other nations...
We might comment on other countries' politics occasionally but do not obsess over their politics like you do over ours. Not meaning this in a mean way. Its more of an observation. You know what they say about opinions...
Not taken as a mean jibe Mm. Not so much of an obsession with American politics in particular, its just that much of the conversation happens to be about American politics (Federal, State and local)...the rest of the world, not so much....but am not adverse to weighing in on non-American politics, when it does become a topic of general conversation.
And who actually know what is going on on the ground and have skin in the game.
Yes...some Americans also stick their noses into the politics of others, and I have very little patience with them either. Idiotic assholery has no borders.
Oh WOW, That is wonderful.... A new International Group.... Idiotic Assholery without Boarders
"When America sneezes, the World catches a cold." to change Metternich words a bit...so yeah, American politics are on all news stations of the world, in every household, on everyone's lips. As such, they have a concern and a valid reason to comment because things that happen or don't happen in America have a direct effect on the rest of the world.
Besides, we not only comment on other countries/people politics with get directly involved with them in all ways, sometimes only words and money or sometime with guns. A large portion of the NGOs are used for this... We would do much better to mind our own business, 'people in glass houses' type of thing...
Oh yes I'd much rather us stay out of others people's business too. I am sick of spending summers with my reserve unit at camp sandy buttcrack.
I hear the Canuk news & it's a total joke , they can't think for themselves & repeat the same slander as all the anti-Trump stations ..
I don't stick my nose into the political games of other countries (even when they are downright funny), so I never really understood why some like sticking their noses into ours. Ours must be more entertaining than the boring serfdom the rest world endures.
Why is Michael Moore in the picture? Or is that just someone unfortunate enough to look just like him? The voice doesn't sound like him and what is said is far too reasonable.
Really !! So easy to debunk ::
Time to use q-tips and drop the slant I pay taxes without ANY representation as with all the ones who need to teach & work in the Deplorable areas !!
Lighten UP !! Brother From a different Mother
