 Fox news is not racist.

 Fox news has their own biased reporting. That I have shown you through the clip regarding North Korea.

 Now, the other point where everyone is ignoring is..other "news networks" are biased against the conservative voice. What are these voices?

 a) immigration (asylum seekers converging on the border)

 b) income tax rates

 c) minimum wage laws

 To name a few.

 Let me give you an example. How many illegal immigrants did Obama deport? versus, how many illegal immigrants did Trump deport?

 See the stark difference in reporting?

Yes. That post is an excellent example of Seriously Flawed Thinking. To state an example will be given and then NO EXAMPLE. 🤣 Questions are not examples.

PS: More aliens have been removed during President Obama's administration than any other time before or after his terms in office.

Maybe not. So please explain their "reporting" in the video.

Yea. He "can" be rude no doubt.

But hey. Look at it this way.

"Politeness" is not a prerequisite to run for the Presidency of the United States of America.

It just makes one wonder about the values of people who would vote for and support a man with so many obvious character flaws.

You guys love literal definitions so let me try using it here. 🙂

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/discrimination

 

Now. Just because a person let's say is making over 10 million dollars per year, he or she is taxed at a higher RATE (percentage) than a person making less than 10 thousand dollars per year.

 

That fits the category of "discrimination." Both for the person making over 10 million per year, and the person making less than 10 thousand per year.

 

The state of Pennsylvania has it correct. Flat tax rate regardless of income.

If we're going to tax someone making $10 million at the same rate as someone making $10,000, then we'll be taxing the person making $10 million no taxes at all, which means no federal revenue, which means no government and/or economic collapse, I don't understand why you see that as a preferable scenario.

I own a business as well as working as a nurse, I make decent money and therefore am taxed at a higher percentage rate than those who benefit less from the system we're paying for. 

As a business owner, I'm happy to pay a higher rate, I need a functional government in order to make money, I need a functional economy to make money, I need the majority of people to have enough money left over to spend it at my business. 

I am able to make money, and support my employees and their families, because of government, not in spite of it.

Yes, but not being a boor is.

The president has to deal with world leaders. ALL of whom, despite the nonsense spouted by Trump, are far more intelligent and statesmanlike than he is.

Now Grumpy, we KNOW Trump isn't intelligent.

That is why he threatens any entity that would release his college transcripts, or SAT scores.

If he was as smart as he claims, he would pull out those transcripts at his pep rallies.

Same thing with his tax returns.

If they showed business acumen, he would whip them out.

But college transcripts probably show, daddy Fred bought his way into University of PA, and tax returns, well, what can we say?

Buffoon and failure.

You should use the same prejudice against the certain individual who became a multi millionaire only after gaining seat in the political office.

What makes you think The United States of America..

cares about what the rest of the world thinks of us?

It's the world that is trying to come into our nation. Not the other way around.

You mean Mitch McConnell?

He is Republican, Senate Majority leader, from KY.

Yes, I question the values of anybody who supports Mitch.

Actually, there is a sizeable group of Americans, either looking to move out, or indeed, moving out.

NY Times had a story last week, about Americans moving to Mexico, and how their presence is changing the area.

Several women in my book club, have looked into immigration to New Zealand, and other places.

These are highly educated professionals, who are ashamed of being an American, with Trump at the helm.

Completely understandable.
