Another example of Why Socialism don't WORK


We have become a society in which there are an awful lot people who have no idea that

Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung all came into power promising the same kind of things that

Ms Ocasio-Cortez is promising. And it led to mass murder, it led to dictatorships. It led to genocide.

These promises are old promises and they invariably lead to BAD things.

Ben Stein

And you belong to a part of society that believes Mango is going to drain the swamp, build a beautiful wall, get Mexico to pay for it, and bring in a health care package better than Obamacare.

Are you disappointed yet?

It seems that history is not taught in school any more.

Spring is here, it's beautiful outside. But let's sit on the computer and insult each other!

Apparently neither is English.

Prejudice cannot be conquered with logic, logic didn't instill it and logic cannot eradicate it.

I don't believe either you or Bigblock have read History, except perhaps required reading in state-sanctioned high-school texts over 5 decades ago.......You both seem to just mimic whatever you see on Fox opinion shows and/or extreme Right web sites that don't know a principled journalist from a hole in the head.......

As you sit behind your computer on your bob and getting your jollies trying to appear that you are the smartest person in the room. You just failed at all. Besides I remember history as its written not as the liberals want it changed to.

I see you're taking a page from Hank's handbook of how to be a misogynist troll......When you were fighting for your life in hospital recently, I said about you that no matter how angry Bigblock got at me for my political views, there is always that deep core of decency in him........I take that back.

It seems to me that you threw the first rock with your attack on both Mrs Joe and myself. I just retaliated and you didn't like it, perhaps now you will think before you attack .

With all due respect and sincerity, we were all worried about you during your health scare. I have noticed though that since you've been back you seem a little less tolerant and a lot more insulting than you were before. Some of your ideas about Trump and the 'great job' he's doing are mystifying. Aren't we seeing the same things about him on the news? At the moment he is planning to make big cuts to Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, and there will be people monitoring the social media accounts of Americans on disability to see if they're out having a good time and really disabled. The man is destroying democracy and thinks a president is the same as a dictator. So whatever steps anyone in Congress takes to investigate and dismantle Trump, his followers, his family business dealings, that is for the good of the country.

The only difference between you and Mrs. Joe is that she is much nicer.

Well it seem to me that even after three years into his Presidency Donald Trump. deserves a lot more credit than he is shown by the "main-stream" media. Over the past three years, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.

Its only fair for you as well as the other liberals to actually take a fair look at what this man has gotten done. Don't forget for free he gives back his checks. Here are some of his accomplishments.

►Move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

►Pull the United States out of the Iranian nuclear deal.

►Stand up to NATO countries for not ponying up enough money to cover the organization’s expenses and their own defense costs.

►Take on the news media and not back down, exposing bias and agenda-driven journalism intended to run him out of office.

►Put an intense focus on immigration, the importance of border security and the cost of illegal immigration, including U.S. citizens killed by the undocumented.

►Target the ruthless Salvadoran street gang MS-13.

►Picking James Mattis as Defense secretary, Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations, John Kelly as White House chief of staff andKellyanne Conway as senior adviser.
►Begin a dialogue with North Korea about ending its nuclear weapons program. Don't forget there are no missiles being launched over the sea of Japan or any missiles being touted as being able to reach either the mainland or Guam.

►Focus attention on Rust Belt states and give respect to white working-class voters, overlooked by the elites on both coasts.

►Challenge elitism and question what it means to be “elite.”

►Create millions of new jobs (the White House claims as many as 3 million) and bring unemployment down to 3.9 percent, the lowest since 2000.

►Focus national attention on the opiod crisis, including a look at doctors who overprescribe pain pills.

►Nominate impressive Supreme Court candidates Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

►Propose and help pass a tax cut and cut federal regulations.

►Pull out of the Paris Agreement on climate change and defy global warming alarmists.

►Renegotiate unfair trade deals in search of better terms.

►Target racial preferences at colleges and universities, which often hurt intended beneficiaries by lowering standards.

►Refocus immigration debate by ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and trying to force Congress to confront the thorny issue of what to do with "Dreamers," who were brought to the USA illegally when they were kids.

►Shake up both the Republican and Democratic establishments and remain independent from the Washington cartel.

►Make politics more accessible to people who have rarely voted or cared about it, and widen the door of civic engagement.

BB- Tbis bunch of liberals will not listen to facts or anything practical. Lulu love Trudeau who Is the biggest crook we know of that can outdo Hillary and drive what was once a great country and drive it into the ground.
The bottom of all the Trump hatred is the desire of the liberal/socialists for a one world government driven by the UN. Global warming is the taxation plan to fund this effort and Donald J Trump Is the one who Is defeating this plan, George Soros is seething with rage and will fund any effort to stop him.
Liberals are so duped they are clueless about their leaders motives.


Every one is entitled to his own opinion. Facts are unalterable.

Now that's the sweet old BB I remember. Thanks for all this info about what you believe are Trump's accomplishments. I know how difficult it must be to hear people putting him down.
