Good thing Hillary didn't win - calling Putin the new Hitler. And that is one of the few reasons - as I have stated - I don't hate Trump. He says he has nothing personal against Putin and would like to work with Russia to defeat terrorism. Is that a bad thing? I have pretty much tempered any praise I may have given Trump with the caveat that I think he is an illiterate boor. For the record, see how many times I have lauded Bernie and note how much more highly I rate Bernie over Trump. Hillary can go to the devil. But Trump won. He won. The system is rigged and yet he played the game and fucking won. Where DD gets the idea I support him with "glee" is the lie.
I wonder, do you fact check the BBC? You get on my case for coming up with odd rebuts to what you all take as gospel, that Russia invaded Ukraine, for example. Now I'm no researcher but when I go to "alternative" sites, they're the ones debunking the mainstream stories, not I, and they often do it well with links to the NYT or BBC to show where these stalwarts of journalism are wrong, dangerously wrong.
Cheers for the atypically considered response to my post, J.
Not trying to be patronising but if you wrote all your posts like this and actually left them to stew for a couple of moments before you posted, you would get a lot more respect as your thoughts would come across and lot more clearly and you wouldn't have to recant whatever it was you said 10 minutes later.
