    I would probably throw out the person who thought it was OK to bring in a skunk. Skunks are nasty.

    I'm simply asking if you're worried about that happening to Rushmore.

    Not the best, but it's a step up.

    Nah, I drive a Kia. Better mileage.

    There are more things in heaven and earth, than you are able to "find" (apologies to Mr. Shakespeare)

    Yes, which I am allowed to have... Even in One Nation Under Donald.

    That's what he calls it... in my opinion (which I am still allowed to have), I think he's overcompensating for something...

    Perhaps Ms. Daniels has an opinion of her own regarding what that might be?

    Well, hearing is the first step; understanding follows...

    ... eventually.

    My grandmother was Indian. I don't remember a lot about it, she died while I was young. I just remembered that she use to tell stories about it and I thought it was cool because she actually looked like an Indian. She married a white man and thanks to them I'm here.

    Apart from 4 the UK (and most other developed nations) have all of that. Why can't America manage it when other non-Exceptional countries can?

    People aren't taxed according to race... who told you to think that they were?

    Here's the short and simple (hopefully enough) version: Everyone gets taxed regardless of race. The money goes into one big pile, so to speak, which then gets divided up according to the budget -- which is determined by Congress (when they're able to) and signed by the president. If reparations are in the budget, a portion goes to that.

    Now, if anyone is advocating doing it differently regarding reparations, I certainly haven't heard about it, and wouldn't support their method. It's not enough to be right; one must also do right.

    He seems pretty set on getting a country which paid a bounty to kill US troops admitted into the G7.

    I mean, I guess that wouldn't make a great campaign ad for him, but it does make me question how honest he is about not having a plan.

    Not wanting money will be incomprehensible to the average American brought up to worship the Almighty Dollar.

    Meanwhile back here in reality neither party has had a 40 year stretch of exclusive control of both the executive and legislative branches.

    Nice sounding rhetoric, though. I'm sure it plays well with people looking to rationalize their support of Donald for whatever reason.

    Haven't you heard? It's all been democrats before Trump. That's why everything is so messed up, because only the democrats ruled over everything and now Trump has to fight the good fight against the deep state and the elites, with Hillary and Soros and Bezos. I want icecream.

    Sure. As a colored man who currently lives in the South, i would be glad to play that game. Seprate but equal and Jim Crow were democrat policies. Can you take a stab at what President desegregated the schools and which political party he belonged to?

    First off, Clint, I must apologize for using the word "deplorables" it was in service to a larger point. I actually don't think most Trump supporters are "deplorables" but since I'm being told that those of us who want the country we love to be all it can be should LEAVE I was merely pushing back since it seemed pretty nasty to tell some of us in America that we aren't worthy of being Americans.

    I understand it is "elitist" to get an education, work hard, sacrifice and get a good job. Follow the rules. Do what you're supposed to do. And I apologize if that approach is offensive to you.

    Was it hate to suggest that people like me should "leave" our own country? Is our country only for certain people?

    I hope not. I hope we can do better as a country. We've done so much good in the past.

    Oh, well, it's called "History class". One usually takes it in high school. You can also go to a library or bookstore and check out books on American history.

    I know, more "elitist" stuff (education), but it's hard to break old habits.

    I'm not aware of any official statements regarding his political party, but it's certainly possible... the parties having effectively switched platforms in the 1960s.

    ...let us know if they ever switch back.

    Thurgood Marshall was President? John F Kennedy and LBJ were Republicans.

    Both major parties supported segregation, slavery, the whole nine yards. This business of blaming one over the other for 250 years is laughable.

    BTW, what "color" are you?
