May I give that sweet little pixie a grandfatherly hug ?

I don't care who she is or where she came from, her picture is precious.

He had all the earmarks of a person with the handle "Maketunai" at AtheistForums.org. Got banned there, too!

I like what the preacher guy had to say. It's sad to see many people sticking to their guns for the Chump(R).

I was waiting to see if you recognised him.

If anything their heads have been fucked up by decades of listening to right wing talk radio and Fox News.
I have decades of listening to conservative talk radio, and I am going to claim that I am a very smart person, if not the most important person in the world, right now.

The government needs to be reorganized - why can't the people on your side figure that out? There are several people on my side trying to fix it - there are none on your side trying to fix it. In fact, Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean have denounced trying to fix it. You do know it was designed in compromise with racist white slave owners, and a century before the establishment of the social sciences, don't you???

I found this very convincing.  It doesn't surprise me at all that Trump supporters and the rest of us are using the same words but meaning different things. 
Quote
Once you grasp that for Trump and many of his supporters, corruption means less the violation of law than the violation of established hierarchies, their behavior makes more sense.
The problem causing this disagreement/division is that the government is inadequately organized - the government is not organized to properly review and graduate (the tremendous diversity of) arguments, including the description of corruption.

Eventually, the rational and reasonable people are going to recognize that we need to have a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people that the founders and subsequent generations could not gather to reorganize the public institutions that were erroneously established in compromise with racist white slave owners of a by-gone era of sophistication.

The founders, and subsequent generations, only had one simple formula to work with, and although, it accurately divides the government into the three parts, what they did not have was a formula for the subsequent divisions of those three parts; and consequently, what we have now, is a semi-chaotic mess that is politely referred to as “political gridlock,” that trickles down in the forms of corruption, hypocrisy, hysteria, frustration, criminality, and violence. Although, we enjoy a better standard of living than most other economies, we maintain a skewed approach to social justice and tranquility, because the government is relatively unreliable compared to our advanced expectations of cooperative organizational systems.

He probably is one of the most important people on Earth. That doesn't mean that's a good thing or a bad thing. Along with Putin and  the Chinese chap. What a wonderful thought.
