    Makes sense he was a FF, I see a buncha these unlikable cunts at work too. Get jollies off of stirring shit up. Use the same phrase when they brag about it later and not notice most people half laugh and roll their eyes.

    Re: Trump

    I think Mattis was a man just trying to keep the psychotic man-child under control, but this Syria thing really burned him to the point he just couldn't do it any more. Any amusing or realistic thoughts on who might replace him?

    Re: Trump

    Trump should not have announced pulling our troops out of Syria on Twitter. He should have consulted with his inner circle first then press conferenced the announcement. Mattis is a 40 year establishment guy. Not a America first guy. So his views didn't align with Trumps and the people who elected Trump. My opine is we should never have been in Syria in the first place anyway. Is CNN reporting the world's end? I don't have TV. This is my opinion. I'm positive your opinion is exactly whatever is opposite of Trumps. That Resist thingy you do.

    Gen Mattis has been a commissioned officer for 46 years. Pres Trump has never served in the military.

    If you are truly stupid enough to think that Trump has America's interests at heart and Mattis doesn't, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Re: Trump

    Mattis is a NATO guy. Mattis said it in his resignation letter. Why should I be ashamed that I said exactly what he himself said? Did you not read the resignation letter #09? Trump has been MAGA from the get go. Trump said looking at all of our alliances and foreign policies is open. Now go watch CNN and get back to me....Are they reporting the sky is falling?

    GoFundMe border wall: Decrying 'illegals,' amputee veteran raises millions - CNN

    Imagine the precedent it would set if this actually happened. Private citizens donating directly to the government on a conditional basis. Any kind of ruling changing the requirement for such donations to go to the general fund for congress to budget at their discretion would have quite a ripple effect.

    Nah I like your type of people, I don't have a problem with what you do in the bedroom.

    I'm glad that the double entendre didn't go over your head though.

    I also didn't see a denial out of you in regards to the comment...

    Why do you think that calling someone gay is insulting? If I was or wasn't doesn't concern you and I am glad you don't care what people do in privacy. I just don't understand why you think comparing someone to a gay person is insulting. And you ain't a racist either i suppose? Or a bully? Usually bigoted people have these three traits. They seem to go hand in hand.

    I did read the letter, and I don't watch CNN.

    Pres Trump's idea of MAGA has been, mostly, a farce. Gen Mattis is one of the most respected military leaders of a generation; Pres Trump is a sycophant to dictators and con men. I'm fairly certain I know which one of the two puts America first. And not for nothing, but being pro-NATO is actually in America's interests.

    I read his campaign. Not only is he decrying illegals, he is also decrying facts.

    Stop putting words in my mouth. I never claimed it was insulting, as a matter a fact I plainly stated in what YOU QUOTED that what you do is non of my business. You clearly didn't understand the metaphor that there is nothing you can do while your support Trump on the facts that he's sneezes are the greatest of all time and we must be absolute bigots and racists to disagree with his claims of having best sneezes.



    So you immediately made up a fact, reiterated it twice and then used your false fact to also interpolate that I'm a racist AND a bully on top of that and then all 3 must clearly establish me as a bigot.

    Great job, this solidly goes along with how your kind works. Enjoy godlikeproductions.com (see I just did your "logic" thing! Its kinda fun actually and easy)


    The front page alone is enough to give you brain cancer. These people hated government and Obama until Trump came along. Now government is GREAT, but shadow government is BAD. Trump has superpowers but is also weak. He controls everything and out of control at the same time! It's amazing. Truly. MEGA
