All Nine Bowls of it Friday...

 

Today I'd like you to join me in assuring the delicate little college kids at Duquesne University that allowing a Chick-fil-A to open a restaurant on their campus won't harm their silly, little safe spaces.

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/04/10/heres-the-latest-thing-to-threaten-university-students-safe-spaces-chicken-sandwiches/

Seriously, they sell chicken sandwiches.

And as far as I know there has never been a case where a chicken sandwich has ever harmed anyone.

You'll be okay...

It's Friday and it's your day.

Go...

Kev. We all know how you LOVE to post those videos of the  'LEFTISTS" railing on Trump's nominees that you LOVE to defend. So, here's a good one for you to rail on and to defend!
It is that horrible lefty Elizabeth Warren questioning Trump's pick to lead the SEC, the watchdog of our Securities and big investment firms on Wall Street.. He will have to RECUSE himself from ANY cases that come up that his former law firm represented with is ALL the big banks like Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street Companies. And any defendant who wanted the head of the SEC to NOT VOTE in their case would simply have to hire his firm to represent them in the hope of getting a TIE vote in their case which means NO enforcement and NO punishment. So please DEFEND THIS!!

Tom, the purpose of the congressional questioning of a nominee is to assure a complete vetting is undertaken.  The questions Elizabeth Warren poses are pretty elementary as they deal with the conflict of interest concerns brought forth for ALL nominees regardless of the position.  You do know this right, Tom?


Bless your heart, did you believe Elizabeth Warren was somehow bringing something up that was monumental and earth-shattering? Oh, no, it's probably because you believed the short analysis written by 'Reflect',  the progressive news source that posted the video you provided, right? 


You really need to think for yourself and stop believing everything you hear and read from the progressive leftist media machine lest you embarrass yourself repeating it...oh, wait, it's too late for that.

Tom, every nominee to all positions has areas of conflicts of interest which have required their recusal in the event an issue of such arises. 


For heaven's sake, would you do some research and get educated on issues prior to posting comments.

NoMr. McGinty, the “Days of Pretending” are far from over. It appears that wehave a president who has few if any core beliefs, and considers the greatest personalreward to be the sound of applause and the ovations of “huuuuuge” crowds..Considerhis flip flops:

 

>>>ON IMMIGRATION : "Nobody knows about it, nobody talks about it, but underObama, millions of people have been moved out of this country, they've beendeported."

—  October 19th,2016 in the third presidential debate

 

However, Trump slammed the immigration system under Obama in a campaign speech

“ The truth is our immigration system is worse than anybody everrealized. But the facts aren't known because the media won't report on them,the politicians won't talk about them, and the special interests spend a lot ofmoney trying to cover them up because they are making an absolute fortune.That's the way it is.

  

>>>>ONTHE MILITARY  “Well the generals under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not been very successful.” (Commander-in-Chief Forum, September 7, 2016)

“We havesome great generals. We have great generals.” (60 Minutes, November 13, 2016)

"Well,I’ll be honest with you, I probably do [know more about ISIS than the generalsdo] because look at the job they’ve done. Okay? Look at the job they’ve done.They haven’t done the job.” (60 Minutes, less than a minute later)


>>>“The electoral college is a disaster for democracy.” (Twitter, November 06, 2012)


“TheElectoral College is actually genius in that it brings all states, includingthe smaller ones, into play. Campaigning is much different!” (Twitter, November 15, 2016)

“I'drather do the popular vote.” Says he was "never a fan of the electoralcollege." (New York Times, November 22, 2016)


>>>Onman-made climate change:

“I am nota great believer in man-made climate change.” (Washington Post, March 21, 2016)


“I thinkthere is some connectivity. Some, something.” (New York Times, November 22, 2016)


-----These are only a few documented examples,and there are many many more examples. Suddenly, China has gone from “currencymanipulator, to “partner”.

 Trump haspraised Putin as a forceful leader, a “better leader” than Barack Obama. Now thathas changed. Six months ago, candidate Trump suggested he was eager for analliance with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"If he saysgreat things about me, I'm going to say great things about him," Trumpsaid last September.

On Wednesday, Trump said hehad growing concerns about Russia's support of Syrian President Basharal-Assad.

"We may be at an all-time low in terms of arelationship with Russia," 

  

----- On NATO - He also lavished praise on NATO, sayingit was adapting to changing global threats.

"I had said it was obsolete. It's no longerobsolete," Trump said as he stood at a news conference alongside NATOSecretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in the White House on Wednesday.

Why do you bother? We just read what Trump has flip flopped about and we will know what you have flip flopped about. He goes with the wind or what is most advantageous at the moment and you blindly back him up. We know that. Hypocrisy means nothing to him or you. Why do you care about commas or spaces? You only care about 140 characters in Trump's next tweet! He spells with the ability of a 4th grader!  
Kala Allen Hisel 15 days ago

David, what exactly is your point?  In reading all the 'examples' you provided, I fail to see discrepancies. What I do see is a President speaking on different dates and speaking to and about various aspects of issues. 


The context within which comments are addressed is extremely important and that is why 'cherry picking' comments must be done carefully in order to maintain an honest and accurate interpretation of its intent. 


What I also see is a President who is demonstrating his ability to adapt to situations as they arise, his ability to maintain an open mind, his ability to grow with experience and his ability to be flexible in his beliefs upon acquiring information not previously within his purview.  All of which are attributes of a strong and effective leader.



Tom Digger 15 days ago
No, flip flopping is not a character of a strong and effective leader. It is a sign of a weak leader with NO character and NO conviction of his ideas or beliefs!  He goes with the wind and criticism. The many many times Trump lied and flip flopped and flip flopped back again. You and the other Trumpbots can barely keep up with your ever changing positions to match his!! You believe on thing one day and the exact opposite the next. Man, that must be hard to remember what you believe from day to day without instruction from Trump!

Well bless YOUR little heart Kala. That's a pretty charitable take on Trumpism. This is by the way, an open forum blog on Friday is it not ? I am responding to a prior topic, and because I think it's important. Odd that you haven't picked up on the current zeitgeist out there in Trump world, but there are a LOT of Trump folk who are hot as heck about his reversal of position after position.   My comments are primarily directed to the topic "The Time for Pretending..." etc.  I actually agree. At least with the title that is. Really, the pretending should stop.

But, you claim that you're a bit confused about my point.    
You wrote "The context within which comments are addressed is extremely important and that is why 'cherry picking' comments must be done carefully in order to maintain an honest and accurate interpretation of its intent."  

Here's the rub. Trump is not merely changing his rhetoric, so your comment is superficial. What I argued is that he is busy changing his POSITIONS. As an aside, I will say your writing shows all the polish of most Washburn graduate degree holders. I'd be careful not to get out over my skis though. 

Before you dismiss my point, consider CNN's Dylan Byer's comments -

 " Prominent conservative pundits like Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan have spoken out against the president's strike on Syria; populist sites like Breitbart have challenged Trump's policy reversals; and right-wing bloggers and radio hosts have rallied behind a #KeepBannon social media campaign in support of Trump's embattled adviser."

Nobody seems to be completely sure what to make of this "president". But he is waffling on many many policy positions and promises he made as a campaigner. To some extent, this is predictable. But like everything, The Donald does it in a BIGLY way. None of the conclusions that I've encountered are positive. Some think he was lying as a candidate. Some think he was so ill prepared for the job that he simply did not know what he was talking about. One way or the other, as we can see, even the poor Breitbart folk think they have been betrayed.   

Kala, another comment you made I feel compelled to comment on. 

"Keri, as someone whose profession is within the mental health industry, it is extremely important to understand the difference between a 'safe space' utilized for mental health purposes and the 'safe space' being referenced for the 'snowflakes' of the leftist faction. "

As a medical professional that first line took my breath away. the "mental health industry"? Is that how you see your field ? But then you go on to use a very unprofessional distinction between safe places; one kind referring to those used for mental reasons, the other used "for snowflakes of the leftist faction'? What bothers me is that you make this irresponsible comment after self indentifying as a member of the "mental health industry". Snowflakes is obviously intended as a pejorative. You go on modifying this - they are not just ANY snowflakes, they're "Leftist Faction" snowflakes. Oh, okay. Is this in the DSM or something Kala. Do you normally minimize an entire group of people following your solemn pronouncement that you are a member, no doubt in good standing, of the "mental health industry". ? Very unprofessional. Not good.

A bit pompous aren't you, David Smith?  I do not care what you think about me, personally or professionally.  I do not believe anyone has to be 24/7 in a professional mode, especially when commenting on one's personal views. 


Your assumptions are curious at best regarding my college education; I am a product of the University of Kansas and of Washburn University.  If you want to review my credentials, let me know. 


I have no interest in arguing over semantics.  I clearly stated my meaning earlier and have no interest in engaging in petty discourse.

The electoral college in 2012 according to Donald Trump was a 'threat to Democracy".. Now of course we know that smaller states with few people are OVERrepresented and people with many people are UNDERrepresented. Our hypocrite in chief has flip flopped on man issues. And the TRUMPBOTS have flip flopped right along side him.

Kevin, 'safe spaces' is a term used a lot in mental health. It means go to a spot where one doesn't feel threatened. You mock it, but for our veterans struggling with PTSD, I humbly ask that you refrain from making fun of this necessity to cope with mental illness. 
Kala Allen Hisel 15 days ago

Keri, as someone whose profession is within the mental health industry, it is extremely important to understand the difference between a 'safe space' utilized for mental health purposes and the 'safe space' being referenced for the 'snowflakes' of the leftist faction. 


Using common sense, it is obvious the 'safe space' that has been coined for the 'snowflakes' sensitivities is clearly what Kevin is referencing here, NOT the 'safe space' terminology utilized within the mental health paradigm. 


I would respectfully request refraining from exploiting a mental health term in order to promote a contrived controversy.

Kala Allen Hisel 15 days ago

Yes, professionals are people too and there IS a huge difference in meaning and context of how words are used.  I won't apologize for pointing out the difference and clarifying the difference.  Being able to discern the manner in which words are being utilized is a pretty basic and simple cognitive function.  


Because I'm a professional in a field is why I know there is a difference in the usage of 'safe space'.  Attempting to exploit the usage of a term in order to create controversy is simply wrong. 


Furthermore, no one has used, inferred or made mention of an association between 'snow flakes' and military veterans aside from Keri.


I have also been under the impression that we were to use our 'real names' now in commenting on articles or blogs.  Madman Dbiker, would you please provide your real name?

The problem that I see with the term is that all of these leftist college-age snowflakes have turned "safe space" into something it was not intended to represent: leftist progressive political tactics.  Put that blame where it belongs.

You point out a single instance of opening a Chick-fil-A on a college campus (there are many) that has cause any student anywhere any emotional harm and I'll publicly apologize and never use the term "Safe Space" ever again.

Oh, it's gotta be real, actual emotional harm and not some made up nonsense from some loony website.

Tom, President Trump spends more time working than any other President to date and many of his so-called 'vacations' have been spent with foreign dignitaries when at Mar-a-Lago, which, have all been successful meetings at that. 


Tom, have you given any thought to taking a vacation?  It would appear you are in need of one...a loooong one...

David Smith 15 days ago
And here I thought I would take the day off, meet my accountant and tie things up. But no, this is too entertaining to miss. It's like entering a different state of consciousness without the use of drugs or booze ! 

And exactly where did you pick out the above stated factoid ? Please do tell us. There are too many professionals out there watching Trump's every move. 

Here is the truth. From the Washington Post , some excerpts, and then the link 

"For the 10th weekend in a row, President Trump is visiting a Trump-branded property — every weekend except the first two after his inauguration.
For the sixth weekend in a row, he’s golfing at one of those properties; he’s golfed on nine of those 10 weekends."

"He’s golfed on 17.9 percent of the days he’s been president, or about once every 5.6 days." 

"By comparison, Barack Obama golfed once every 8.8 days over the eight years that he was president. And he was excoriated by his political opponents for doing so — including, as is now well-known, by Trump. "

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/04/08/trump-has-visited-a-trump-branded-property-every-2-8-days-of-his-presidency/?utm_term=.2e3eae6acaa4

You just admonished Tom about needing a vacation. Perhaps you should consider getting out of your bubble. 
Really, this president  "spends more time working than any other President to date".

Your fact sources are either extremely poor, or you're simply making things up as you go along. Not good either way.  

I just took one last look at your comments - this is just too much.... FDR ? Truman ? And now Trump ? Seriously ? He mentioned the bombing of Syria over chocolate cake to President Xi of China " and it was the biggest best chocolate cake ever, ever ever, magnificent ! Awesome, BIGGLY CAKE ! President Xi said, " GOOD CAKE ! I made him happy !! " On the other hand, I told the baker, "fat chance getting paid Carlos". Yes, our hard working small hand man child. How Orwellian.

Kala, seriously? Hardest working president? So far he has cost the taxpayers $21 million for his trips South. Protecting Trump Tower is costing $60 million. $180k an hour to fly the wife around. The ski trips for the kids. Within 1 year, the Trumps will have spent more in traveling than the Obama's did in 8 years. How about that weekend he was 'working at the White House' yet pictures were taken of him watching golf on TV at a golf course in Virginia? Pretty sad when you have to lie about where the president is because they are embarrassed that he is golfing yet again. The only 'work' Trump has done, is find people to outsource his 'work' to. Where do you get your news from? Love to know the source that says he is the hardest working president to date. And by news source, I mean something other than the Trump loving Fox News.

McKenna, McKenna, McKenna. 


First, support and prove the dollar amounts you are touting that are being spent by the Trump administration.  As was proven on your previous comments regarding Trump donating his quarterly paychecks where you stated it could not be proven he did so and I provided proof that he had, please provide your proof of the dollar amounts you quoted.  You will not be able to and would be able to know that had you kept current and read reliable news sources (again).. 


As you research the subject, you will find current facts that state it is really not possible to determine the actual costs as it has taken 8 years for them to determine the same costs Obama incurred and they are still finalizing those figures.  You will also discover the reason it is so difficult to identify and calculate such costs.


It appears you are the one who needs to not only stay current with your facts but also choose more reliable sources for those facts.

Trump stated that he would not get paid while in office, yet he is issued paychecks. The fact that he 'says' he is donating his pay is not the same as not getting paid. That money is still coming out of the budget and no one can verify he is donating any of that money. Please know your facts before you take away the cigar.

President Trump's first quarterly pay check as President was covered by ALL news outlets, McKenna, and he donated it to the National Park Service. 


You know, a simple Google search would've provided you the facts.  As far as "no one can verify he is donating any of that money", McKenna, the event was broadcast the whole world over.  Next time, take your own advice, "Please know your facts before you take away the cigar".  LOL
