Let’s be clear about Trump, he loves to spin his own tales, exaggerate and “work” with the facts... but as far as I can tell, it’s always to tweak democrats and the media. He loves to see their heads explode when he tweets something.

But, in important areas he does things when politicians would only talk about it. The VA, negotiations with China, Europe, NAFTA, many other things.

Its not that Trump is so good; it is that the Dems are so bad. Initially Pelosi tried to stop the impeachment proceedings. But once she saw that was what her party wanted she went along. Going along is what politics is all about. The impeachment sets a horrible precedent. Now both parties will seek to impeachments to reverse elections.

Of course if the electorate is overwhelmingly in favor of a certain party, it won't be possible. Also, it will be interesting to see if that Maine Rep, Collins, who went against her party gets reelected.

Distressing to see so much acrimony in Washington. The Dems have fostered it and now the nation has to witness it.

Former perp Van Jones has been stating this for a while in warning those on the Fake News Network that a big hammer job in coming to the democrat-progressive party, and realizes that the African-American base is leaving in droves to support POTUS. No surprise..>BLEXIT?.

What did yuz think of Pelosi's ritualistic tearing up of the president's speech during his state of the union? Film of that will be used in the upcoming campaign. What bothers me most about contemporary politics is all the endless bashing and acrimony. Its scary that we live among such barbarians.

It was a disgrace. Pre-planned.

The democrats look like fools.

Remember I'm and old union man whose life was saved by unions and they are supported by the Democrats. That fact makes it particularly painful for me to go over to the other side of the isle. But the Dems want my guns; House speaker tears up the President's speech in an obviously planned ritual. I hate what Washington is becoming; it eats me up.

Yesterday we were unable to get our Boston Globe and ended up with the Boston Herald. What a difference! The Herald publishes an unbiased newspaper which is what the First Amendment is supposed to be. Refreshing, it was a little like Fox News being compared to CNN.

We are renewing our gun club memberships tomorrow and I plan to bring a whole bunch of sheets of paper and just stand there and rip them in half.

Hope you get your picture taken for the press. Make weird faces when you do it as well.

My wife asked me not to do it, not rip up the papers. She expressed concern that I might just be looking for trouble. Not all club members are conservatives and she does have a point. Why look for trouble?

"is Trump my president". Well, Trump is doing what he said he would do which is much more then previous have done. That said the others on the other side are scary to me pulling in way out directions that give me warning lights, much like blue lights in your rear view mirror. Anyone want to kill my vote? I am voting for Trump all the way.

Makes me wonder if we have evolved into a collection of Conservatives. Nobody who comes here is a Democrat. Is that because we are fishermen and fishermen tend to be outdoorsmen?

Hey, Rich, where you been? Haven't heard from you in a while. Jealous husband?

The "democrat" to which you refer may no longer exist Frank. Whatever they call themselves today the democrat that was our neighbor in the 50s,60s,70s .....until the 90s, just no longer exist. I remember when MSM lamented that the Republicans were hijacked by the Tea Party. I'm not so sure of that but I am sure that whomever hijacked the left has caused them to lose their collective minds.
The list is too long to enumerate but I think it is fair to say they have no leader, no platform, no candidate, no integrity and, as the party of infanticide, no morals. The party of no!
Trump is far out performing what anyone ever expected despite severe headwinds. I like him as a president but even more admire him as one tough SOB. He can't believe how dirty it is in DC and wants to get things done like a businessman. Now that he is cleaning house of all of the Obama plants he, at least, should be able to stop the leaks and subterfuge. This will help him after he is re-elected. The left is going to pull something out of their hats, or butts, this spring. They cannot go to war with the jackwagons that they are currently showcasing.
