  1. Underestimating one's opponent is the first step for disaster. Ever read Sun Tzu's The Art of War? You really should.
  2. If you want to go to Timothy McVeigh I might counter with Janet Reno. McVeigh was motivated by the government's unjustified and needless slaughter of innocent people at Waco, remember. According to your doctored and skewed polling only. Hardly. More yours I think.
  3. The question proves you don't have even a rudimentary grasp of the situation. This isn't a "red" vs. "blue" state thing anymore. Again, this is about more than Trump. I don't approve of Trump, and neither do a large percentage of my friends. This is a far more complex situation than partisan hacks tend to be able to comprehend.
  4. Your argument fails.... considering this isn't about the South or the North, and I don't live in the South; nor am I a Republican. Too many people don't have the intellectual capability to comprehend that the divisions within this nation are not simply about Left versus Right, or Democrat vs. Republican anymore; but the need to pigeonhole people is stronger than ever. But the path we are on is one where the powers that be are openly defiant about not only ignoring the Constitution but attacking its most fundamental precepts... and those of us who still believe in the Republic have about had enough. Trump is a symptom of the core problem; not the problem himself.
  5. Sorry; the childish self-delusion belongs to you and your ilk. Nothing you post is based in fact or reality.
  6. Oh, PLEASE wake up and smell the reality!! I've been threatened countless times with the murder of myself and my family simply for stating a belief in the merits of the Second Amendment. When gun banners threaten me I simply point out that they have confirmed why the right to bear arms exists and why I will never surrender it. Your bigotry and hatred are based in delusion; not fact. Actually, the gun haters hysteria and extreme emotionalism is turning off voters in huge swaths. I'd would certainly rather see Trump not be reelected, but the current crop of Democratic candidates is made up of those whose utter lack of charisma and merit I fear will prove to be fatal to their efforts to unseat him.
  7. Indeed, a gun can literally be had by anyone with the money or the intent; which renders gun control itself obsolete at this point IMHO.
  8. Swearing on a bible would mean little, as I am not a Christian; but I did not vote for Trump. I did, in fact, vote for Hillary Clinton; though I held my nose as I did it. I'm sorry, but Gabby Giffords' assailant was not a Republican, and Loughner's high-school friend Zach Osler said, "He did not watch TV; he disliked the news; he didn't listen to political radio; he didn't take sides; he wasn't on the Left; he wasn't on the Right." His actions were the result of severe mental illness, not political activism. Just because you don't want to hear it doesn't make it "blather", or untrue. Your partisan bias is blinding you to reality.
  9. Actually, I have found no evidence of such. Those whose political ideology mandate it will scream that transgenderism is based in science, but those who actually study the science of it will tell you (as gently and compassionately as they can) that true transgenderism is a mental illness, not a biological one.
  10. I've wondered about that myself. I knew a transgender woman through my work and we once had a discussion about it in which I asked about it. She started by asking me to think about what it would feel like to look in the mirror and see a perfect stranger; someone about whom you recognized nothing. I agreed that would be difficult. She then went on to ask me to think about what it would feel like if you looked in the mirror and not only saw a complete stranger, but a creature about which you found every facet loathsome and detestable. I respectfully but honestly told her that such sounded far more like self-hatred than transgenderism. She got very upset and I apologized for the observation, but she agreed that maybe she wasn't doing a good job of answering my original question and we left it at that. A couple of years later she had the actual gender reassignment surgery, but tragically she committed suicide less than a year afterwards. A mutual friend told me that she was devastated by the fact that having the surgery didn't make her feel better about who she was.... but simply exposed that the self-loathing she suffered wasn't based on her gender after all. I can't comprehend what it must be like to be so full of hatred for yourself. It boggles my mind, but only confirms my belief that transgender people are deserving of compassion and treatment for their mental health issues... but that self-mutilation must never be a legitimate option.
  11. For the most part, I agree with you. If how someone chooses to live their life doesn't adversely affect my ability to live my life the way I choose, then what business is it of mine? Long story short: none whatsoever. However, when they want to enact laws that will have me prosecuted or fined because I mistakenly use the wrong gender pronouns in casual conversation then I have a problem with that.
