We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

But, they finally do stand to cheer themselves. Sexists? Yes. Men don't stand to cheer themselves. All Americans should cheer those who keep us safe and labor at the most taxing and dangerous jobs.
Cheez! They even sit still for infanticide!
Read the speech for yourself. Really a good one.
Take that to market, new Congresswomen, and the Democrats who encourage or tolerate them and their anti-Semitism.
Thank you, President Trump.

You really see what's important to Demonrats. They chant USA for the women in the house and senate but sir in their hands for low unemployment statistics for the middle class, blacks, and Hispanics.
They're muy pissed because their economic and tax policies could never deliver what Trump has delivered. Nobody ever ignited an economy with economic pessimism.
Did you notice that the de m women hoping to be the next potus all dressed in color...I'm contrast to the white elephants?
President Trump threw down the gauntlet to the Democrats: ain't gonna' be no Socialism in America...not now, not ever. He also gave a high hard one to the new Jew-hating Holocaust deniers in the audience by hosting a Dachau survivor, giving a nod to Jerusalem as capital of Israel, and spotlighting Iran as the terror, America-hating, Jew-hating capital of the world. Excellent SOTU, Mr. President! Build The Wall or Die Trying!
Stacey Abrams with the rebuttal... Really, that's the best the democrats could do? I know their bench sucks, but she's such a pathetic loser. I'm just kind of speechless about it.
And the Golden Raspberry award goes to.... Nancy Pelosi!
Unfortunately Nancy couldn't be here tonight to accept this momentous honor, so Stacey Abrams will be accepting on her behalf.
my favorite moments from SOTU and a few observations (in chronological order):
Pelosi: waving papers around in the background as a means of pulling focus from DJT, acting like she's not paying attention.
Pelosi: DJT makes a comment about both sides of the aisle cooperating together, earns unanimous standing ovation, at which point NP stands, leans around him, and nearly claps right in his face.
Women in White: don't they realize that white is racist? Poorly thought out color choice, imho.
Pelosi: keeps picking the wrong time to get spinach out of her teeth, or something.
Also Pelosi: can't tell if she's licking her lips incessantly because they're dry or because she'd like nothing more than to bite DJT's head off and end his presidency right there.
Also also Pelosi: standing and waving arms frantically to get her ladies in white to stand and applaud themselves.
Women in White: forgetting themselves for a moment and agreeing with Trump on the fact that's remarkable to have so many women in Congress.
Also Women in White: momentarily forgetting themselves in a display of passé patriotism by chanting "USA!"
Anyway-- Pelosi: "forgetting" to sit down after Pence and the rest of the chamber had sat following another standing O.
Schumer: looking far too gleeful about the NY abortion law.
Bernie: wishing he could melt into his chair as DJT called out socialism for what it is.
DJT-- well done, sir!
Women in White: don't they realize that white is racist?
Well, they are used to wearing white sheets.
It's all theater and posturing.
It has zero effect on the general political situation.
So who cares?
It has effect on solidifying supporters, gets through to some on fence, and most importantly forms lasting impressions on the young watching SOTU for first or second time. And sets the agenda currently, while Dem women embarrass themselves for national audience.
It is also an opportunity for President Trump to address the citizens he serves directly without the LSM "interpreting" his every thought, word and expression.
BTW, the nitpicking LSM commenting on his address made fools of themselves. They must have been watching (or reading) an entirely different speech. Talk about news readers and propagandists. Do they have no shame? Of course not. They are paid you-know-whatsies.
Great address, President Trump. You hit the mark on every subject.
Good speech. Did not apologize to the world. I say you should be proud to be an American...I worked overseas and was always proud to be an American. Liked the honor the veterans. My father was a WWII vet-wounded in North Africa-he died 2 years ago at 94. Was proud to have served his country but like many of the Greatist Generation he returned home, married,and worked hard to provide for his family. I'm his son and proud of it. When I see the Dems behavior I think of his sacrifice and shake my head.
With all hubbub about Democrat Party klansmen in the news lately, I think it was nice to put the Democrat Party klanswomen on display with coordinated costumery!
NO! They do not get to take over the color WHITE! That is bullshit that we allow any group of weirdos - think Pride parade and 'rainbow' flags - to own a color so much so that if i wear that color i somehow self-identify with them.
No. This independent woman will continue to wear white because it flatters my complexion and goes with many others - but not, dare i say, kente cloth!
Let the lashing begin...ac
Odd. When Democrats wear white in protest, they usually wear hoods.
I wish he would have paused after this line:
Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.
Maybe turned to his left a bit to glance at Nancy.
See HERE for Pix:
Come on, guys. They were just displaying their White Privilege.
But they didn't bring their hoods.
The white outfits were intended to send a message. A show of unity. Women power. Female supremacy. That kind of thing. Can you do that and still claim that you represent all Americans? Just like the black caucus and the Hispanic caucus it is blatant bigotry and yet they would go ballistic if white men did exactly the same thing.
