When barack was elected, he said that those who didnt agree with his agenda
would have to "get to the back of the bus"Well libs, I hope
that Trump is even LESS sympathetic and willing to negotiate than barack was.The madder the libs get, the better. I hope Trumps does as
little as possible in his term(s) to even consider what libs wants. God bless President TrumpGod Bless the USA
Learning to disagree is an art...and the foundation of peaceful society. The
irony is all of this, is it's the "liberal tolerance" police who
are the least adept at learning to disagree peacefully and respectfully.Expect the "thought police" to continue, through media and
Hollywood, to tell us what to think, say and do.
Yes we can all get along. Step 1: Stop threatening my freedom, Step 2: Pay for
your own crazy programs.
So half of us are considered deplorable, and everyone who ran in the last
election has been termed Hitler by someone. Yes we have a long way to go, maybe
we'll revert to tribalism, its happened before.
John Inazu: “How do you work and shop and play with neighbors who hold
such [different] beliefs?”Recent trends indicate that this
question is almost unaskable. Journalist Bill Bishop, in his book ‘The
Big Sort,’ documents the effect of political polarization in geographical
terms. Neighborhoods have become increasingly segregated politically over the
past 30-40 years. Where once we had neighbors with a mix of viewpoints, now
they tend to think similarly. We don’t just have silo thinking and silo
media, we now have silo neighborhoods. You can’t have that
relationship-building over-the-fence backyard interaction or that chat over
produce in the grocery with a neighbor with different political views, because,
increasingly, that neighbor thinks like you.If even Glenn Beck and
Samantha Bee can come to hugging terms (awkwardly) on the need to get to know
The Other better, then the rest of us should take Inazu to heart and give it a
try.An aside: Godwin’s Law is also commonly held to further
mean that the person making the inevitable Hitler comparison has lost the
argument and the discussion is effectively terminated.
Same old same old from those on the right posting on here. Liberals are all
intolerant of them. Conservatives can do no wrong, liberals can do no right.
Both sides of the aisle view the world through blinders. My oldest brother and
his wife are Democrat. My second brother is a staunch Republican. I get along
just fine with both of them.
Continued from previous post:I then expect residents of other States
to respect the right of Utah residents to set welfare policy, marriage laws,
land use, and speed limits as we see fit.The entire nation must
respect those rights enumerated in the Constitution: Freedom of speech, press,
and religion, right to own and carry guns, access to an attorney and other due
process, no slavery,18 year olds and women voting, etc.But the
federal courts have got to stop imposing made-up rights on a huge and diverse
national population. Congress has to stop imposing one-size-fits-all social
programs on the entire nation, while also ending deficit spending that forces
all of us to pay for pork projects or social programs not properly within
Congressional power.If Cali wants to force photographers to
participate in homosexual celebrations, fine. But others should be free not to.
Civil rights don't include forcing another private citizen to provide you
services. The 13th amendment actually prohibits that.Diversity of
culture between States would dramatically reduce conflict. Vote with your feet
and live where the culture suits you.
The only way to get along with those with whom we disagree is to afford each
other the ability to live life as we both see fit. Within the privacy of our
own homes that is easy enough. But within the neighborhood and community what
we do can affect others and create conflict.The best solution is the
old adage of good fences making good neighbors. In other terms, it is to
respect diversity.The diversity we need to respect, is the diversity
of culture and law between the various States and even between communities
within a given State. If every city looks like NYC, or if every State has the
same laws and culture as Massachusetts or California, then we really don't
have diversity.The federal government needs to be limited to those
powers specifically delegated in the Constitution. States need to be free to
set laws and culture in all other cases.I can live with gambling,
prostitution, free flowing booze, elective abortion, socialized medicine,
inter-generational welfare and marriage benefits for homosexual couples in other
States as long as I don't have to pay for any of it.Continued:
"Hillary only called the racist and sexist Trump voters Deplorable!"
Says the leftists. And who voted for Trump? "They are all
sexist and racist! It's the only reason to vote for Trump!" So, tell me: Exactly who voted for Trump that isn't "Deplorable"
or a "Bitter Clinger" like Obama and Hillary have stated? Who is this
mystical "reasonable Trump voter" that you leftists claim exist when
confronted with the Deplorable comment? Because you always always call us
racist, sexist, homophobic and a whole bunch of other nasty names--just because
they disagreed and didn't vote Hillary for Queen for life.
Get along?It depends; on whether democrats EVER admit they lost the
election, and whether they EVER stop bellyaching.It wouldn't
hurt for them to stop posting comments here under 3 or 4 different pseudonyms
either!They REALLY aren't fooling anyone.
@Thid Barker"She meant every word she said and said every word she
meant!"Yes, except she regretted the casual assertion that it
was half and half. The thing I'd like people to do is actually read the
words she said because it is obvious to anyone with a fourth grade reading level
that she was only criticizing Trump supporters who were racist or sexist (etc).
@ Frozen: Whom do you think Hillary's nasty invective applied? All that
Hillary said boils down to just one thing: If you disagree with my version of
things, you are deplorable! Nice try but no cigar! She meant every word she said
and said every word she meant!
Too funny, the usual haters of all things not "GOP PURE" reply quickly
with their hate filled rants and nonsense. The inability to even see how hate
fills their souls.Most of America is patriotic and loves their
country first, then their are those who are really love their gang far more than
America and if they aren't in charge it's all wrong.But
it's easy to look at recent history of what happens when they have control.
(continued) "But the other basket -- and I know this because I
see friends from all over America here -- I see friends from Florida and Georgia
and South Carolina and Texas -- as well as, you know, New York and California --
but that other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let
them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody
worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they're
just desperate for change. It doesn't really even matter where it comes
from. They don't buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope
that their lives will be different. They won't wake up and see their jobs
disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they're in a dead-end. Those are
people we have to understand and empathize with as well." - Hillary
@Thid Barker"If you don't agree with liberals, you are
"deplorable", remember?"I remember Clinton's
remarks about "deplorables" and it went a bit differently."You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of
Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The
racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it. And
unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has
given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people -- now 11
million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric.
Now, some of those folks -- they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not
America." - HillaryPeople who wear "deplorable" as a
badge of honor must either be one of those awful categories... or just
aren't paying attention to her remarks.
Remember, Hutterite: your side defines "compromise" and "Getting
along" as: "Give in to our demands 100%, and make sure you abandon your
principles and adopt ours."There is never, ever any hint of
compromise or Democrats settling. Only Republicans and Conservatives are ever
asked to give up what they want for peace. It's like this: "We want to
do Stalin. Oh, you don't want Stalin? We should all compromise. Mao it
is! Or Castro. Your choice. You might twist our arm enough for Pol Pol or Che
If you don't agree with liberals, you are "deplorable", remember?
Clearly, judging from some posts here, we've still got some challenges.
There are some really bitter republican supporters out there.
millenials appear to have bought in to intolerant PC-ism, with their desire to
restrict free speech.can we get along? dems don't seem to want
to, unless we succumb to them. I remember the Bork hearings, where their
vitriole reached new lows. harry was as nasty and partisan as anyone I can
remember while leader of the dems in the senate
Democrats scream at half the nation, calling them "Bitter clingers" and
"Deplorables" and sexist, racist, bigoted, etc for disagreeing with
them. The left calls for "Tolerance" yet says "We
don't have to tolerate the intolerant. And who are the intolerant? Why,
those people we disagree with!" The left demanded the IRS
punish Conservatives. They want health care denied to Republicans, and they
call for the US to punish "Hate speech" which they define as "Speech
we don't like." Your job and even physical safety is in jeopardy on
college campuses if you dare to be to the right of Mao. The left
openly argues against freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of the
press and religion. They argue against the right to defend yourself. So why should I try to cooperate with them again? They want America to look
like the Soviet Union.
"Q&A: Can an America that agrees on little politically agree to get
along?"====Why is this bogus question only asked
when a Republican wins the White House?Did Barack Obama, Harry Reid,
Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer "reach across aisle" and try to work with
Republicans? Nope! They worked daily to vilify the GOP.Sorry, but
the Liberal, onerous policies of Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party
were roundly rejected on November 8th. You guys had your chance, and you
screwed it up.We didn't elect a Republican President, House,
and Senate to work with Democrats on crafting policy. We elected these folks to
stop, and repeal their destructive policies...period!Barack Obama
and the Democrats have been rejected!
