point is his blustery out of control temper is legendary, and factually accurate.

I JUST read Hamilton's bio, all 800 pages, a slightly different view of Adams

I think the biographers of the founding father's have competing views and portrayals of each LOL.

edit: and I'm not comparing Adams to Trump in any way, just observing that Adams *would* have been nutso on twitter, if such were available

I would invite you to read the section on Adams from Hamilton's biography, and also suggest a *good* biography of Adams for me to explore.

After reading Hamilton's, who had major issues himself, I'm curious about the flip side from the Adam's proponents perspectives. Chernow really seemed to want to set some parts of Hamilton's history "right"", but as I alluded to, I get the distinct impression that the "sides" from each of the founders have some axes to grind with one another.

I've read more than a few biographies on Adams, the most recent John Adams by David McCullough, 2001, Simon & Schuster ISBN 0-684-81363-7.

I believe we must keep in mind that the "Founding Fathers" were "giants" and had giant egos to match. I don't think Hamilton liked anyone except Washington. Adams and Jefferson out and out battled for years but reconciled in latter years. They both died on the exact same day - July 4, 1826

Mmmm, I believe Donald may have the biggest ego of any of the previous 44 Presidents.

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
John Adams

Quote:
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
Thomas Jefferson

Thursday, January 26, 2017
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-one percent (41%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 44% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 31% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +13 (see trends).

Miami-Dade Mayor Ends 'Sanctuary' Status, Orders Jails to Comply With Trump's Immigration Plan

The mayor of Miami-Dade County has ordered his local jails to comply with President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration enforcement, in order to avoid punishments for so-called "sanctuary cities."

On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order pulling all federal funding from sanctuary cities that refuse to turn undocumented criminals over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other federal officials.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Thursday ordered county jails to obey federal detention requests, which effectively ends the county's position as a "sanctuary" for illegal immigrants.

?In light of the provisions of the Executive Order, I direct you and your staff to honor all immigration detainer requests received from the Department of Homeland Security,? Gimenez wrote Daniel Junior, the interim director of the corrections and rehabilitation department.

all I know is we have a guy in WH who knows how to get things done and every day he is proving it...and its about time; a private sector success formula...wake up, meet with staff, give directions and GET THINGS DONE; and let the Dems keep up their behavior; they do not understand what happened in Nov and they are losing credibility daily; except with Madonna, Ashley Judd and Gloria Steinem; Trump has done more in a week than Obama did in 8 years....except rounds of golf

I don't remember the outrage when Obama did it because the FBI found we had let Iraqi's into the country who planted IEDs in Iraq...

Thumbs down Re: Trump-Mania

Can you guys stop posting links to right wing and/or alt-right neo Nazi websites and use links to legitimate conservative newspapers/outlets. Try WSJ, Fox or the Washington Times.
Breitbart is not a "source," it's a disgusting collection of lies, conspiracy theories and losers.

Fair enough Bob.

I'll use the 'main stream media' instead.

The protesters are more concerned about the rights of non-US citizens than the safety of US citizens.

The below is why we really need to think about who we let in...
