    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I don't elevate anyone's opinion. I thought that was pretty clear with my posts today.

    In my opinion, and the opinion of many others, that had nothing to do with the color of their skin but the content of their words and deeds. So see . . . I'll be called racist in some places because I have a different opinion. I'm not making excuses for Trump. I just see this in a different way. I have my own issues with Trump. But let's look at the ladies he spoke about. In other words, if you have a brown face, a black face, if you are a Muslim, or a queer you must not think for yourself or have your own opinion. You must walk in lockstep with her. This is one of the reasons Candace Owens was redpilled. I prefer Dave Rubin's approach . . . let's all come to the table as ourselves and have a conversation, regardless of whether we are in agreement on everything. That's tolerance. Her comments are racist, in my opinion.

    So, that negates her opinion? How?

    It depends. Sometimes when people say Trump is being racist, he isn't being racist. If the mayor can say what she said: . . . which is basically what Trump said, why is he racist and she not racist? The viral video clip came in response to media figures and Democrats falsely claiming that the president's tweets on Saturday were racist. Nowhere in Trump's tweets did he refer to race as he called out the poor living conditions inside Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings' (MD) district. "Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous," Trump tweeted. "His district is considered the Worst in the USA as proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place." (Edited again . . . something keeps messing up on this post)

    Oh amoLucia . . .I'm so hungry! I spent most of the day doing a big "company clean" on Spidey's bedroom. That meant vacuuming cobwebs and dust, washing walls, taking a large pile of clothing to the hallway where I chucked it all down the laundry chute into the basement. I'm hot, sweaty, and hungry. My oldest son, his wife, and my two grandchildren are coming in August for a 3 day visit. They stay in Spidey's room so I have to make it clean enough for company. I'm sitting in front of a fan in the kitchen trying to decide what to make for dinner. I really don't want to cook. So, that English muffin and homemade jam sounds so yummy. But I don't have any English muffins or bagels. I miss Spidey . . . here's his idea of a selfie. Mom and Spidey.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I've been doing a "company clean" in my son's room all day and so had some time to listen to videos online. As you all know, I follow Candace Owens. She and Dave Rubin had a one hour chat and it started with his talking about classic liberalism and how that is what he is and he differentiates that from "the left". I thought about our earlier conversation where I mentioned this and thought I'd add the link. It is a good look at what we on the other side are thinking. Maybe might be a good idea to listen to the other side instead of making knee-jerk reactions that simply because a person disagree with you, you have to be racist, homophobic, hateful, etc. I honestly think the left is shooting itself in the foot and painting themselves into a box (as Dave mentions). Anyway, I'll link it even though I'm pretty sure many won't watch it. But it does give a pretty good description of classical liberal - JFK being a classical liberal. The last sentence below is important. The "tolerant left" is no longer very tolerant. Dave’s journey from a left leaning progressive to a free thinking classical liberal has been quite an adventure. As a gay married man living in America, Dave spent the majority of his adult life subscribing to a certain political belief system based primarily on his immutable characteristics. Fed up with the mainstream media narrative and click-bait news, Dave decided to open up about his awakening, for all to see. He came to realize that no person or idea should be expected to join a side, but rather they should embrace their status as an individual. He now feels that the modern left has lost its way by taking political correctness and groupthink to a dangerous level, distracting from the true American dream of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Dave’s background as a stand up comedian, degree in political science, and willingness to listen without fighting has uniquely positioned him to tackle big ideas and uncomfortable truths with thought leaders from both sides of the aisle. His show The Rubin Report aims to create civil discourse with people we both agree and disagree with, and host a dialogue with others whose ideas are judged before being given the chance to be presented in an honest way.

    Ah, I see someone took away the "dislike" on my post. Well, that's good so thanks. The video was posted, as noted in the link, on Kimberly Klacik's Twitter with permission of Michelle and of course then it goes viral so I'm pretty sure it is ok to share here. Why in the world is it so hard to maybe take a deep breath and have a conversation and look at what some other folks are saying?

    Good morning everyone. I slept, all night. It's a miracle. And a blessing. I'll take what I can get. My husband left to do some farm work for a local farming family. He will be retiring from the mosquito district as manager this year and signed up for Social Security this week. He's 4 years old than I am. Funny thing, he called me to get my SS# and the guy who was helping him at the SS office looked me up and said my DOB on my SS stuff is 1956 instead of 1957. I guess I'll have to get a birth certificate and fix that. My husband was a private contractor most of his life and worked as a logger, faller, we had a chipping business, he drove a logging truck. All things with no retirement. The mosquito district does have retirement so we will have some money there. Not sure why I went off on that tangent . . . No calls overnight. So far, so good being on call. My plan is tackle another cleaning project. Since Spidey will be leaving for until Monday, it will be his room. Take down the curtains, wash the walls, etc. Ted - wow, those young'uns have a lot to learn. Tweety - hope you don't get called in either. And yes, you are right, StevieLynn was it! Joe - nice cross stitch! I used to embroider . . . still have a sofa pillow case around here somewhere that needs a new pillow. It will reach the mid 90's here today but should cool off later next week into the 80's. That's about it. Life in a small town. Oh, I didn't go watch the stars last night from the library. Such a party pooper.

    No problem. You should hang around my FB page. Pro-vaccination, most of the time. Sometimes I post about woo-woo pseudoscience too.

    Yup.

    Again, it wasn't a joke. I know what I meant. If it got misinterpreted, I'll be more careful and add some emojis next time.

    There's just something about that word "nasty" that, as a L&D nurse, conjures up images I've seen . . . You rock herring - love your history with getting the safe staffing law here in CA.

    Mueller Hearing

    As my husband was about to walk out the door to get on a tractor, I asked him the question you mentioned about what positive things he sees under the Trump administration and he said "The economy, labor participation, cutting food stamp useage, foreign policy, on the road to the right stuff with a lot people (we no longer let China kick our ass economically), NATO - we now enforce that other countries pay their share for NATO upkeep . . .I have more but have to get to work". If the reason behind this question is really wanting to know what people think, rather than give us more to argue about (like my t-shirt comment), then more people might answer. Just sayin'

    Media behaving badly

    Thank you. The local tribe here is Pit River. We work closely with them as medical folks and they have a great clinic. http://pitrivertribe.org/tribal-history/ Where I was born, we grew up hearing the story about a rather famous Native American who lived in that area. Ishi. https://history.library.ucsf.edu/ishi.html Nothing to do really with media behaving badly but Admin sometimes lets us go a tad bit off course over here on the yellow side of AN. I'm fascinated about the history of where I grew up and where my family is from herring. I started reading history books in elementary school and simply can't quit. Thanks again.
