Re: “Kaleidoscope brings treasures of LGBT cinema to Argenta

Celebrating a severe neurotic problem that is essentially about control of other people for self gratification!

The trade war started after NAFTA and the WTO were signed by Bill Clinton and our so called trading partners continued to pay starvation wages, maintained unsafe and environmentally damaging working conditions to save on overhead costs, fought their reform that caused the Doha Round of the WTO to fail; or enacted much higher tariffs against the US that the three presidents prior to Trump ignored; or engaged in currency manipulation to always undersell the US dollar, win every trade deal that has completely decimated the US manufacturing sector. That's the trade war against the US that began 2 decades ago. Trump is just now retaliating on behalf of the United States.

Re: “Let's vote

And while we're at it lets get a vouchers for private schools initiative on the ballot; and now that it's likely internet sales will be taxed in Arkansas let's get a ballot initiative going to repeal the personal property tax! Now we're talking about meaningful reform instead of a way for people to fritter their hard earned dollars away!

Re: “Punishing the poor

Then maybe the congress will give up on the unsustainable socialized medical insurance fiasco that have seen costs skyrocket 189% since 2014 and enact the ACHA for the uninsured that provides a 2000 to 4000 dollar tax credit to purchase private plans. A plan that will contain costs, provide higher reimbursements for the medical services industry, incur no taxes on individuals and medical supplies providers and not require anyone to purchase health insurance if they don't want it!

Re: “Privileged civility

Not the Communists! They provoked a conflict over the right to private property and German nationalism with the Social Democrats that forged an alliance between SPD and the National Socialists. That gave the Nazis easier access to the German Parliament. They were a very small political movement that without communist aggression would have remained powerless.

That of course seems to be the grand purpose of the radical left and why theyre so ecstatic about inciting harassment of their opponents: to provoke a race, immigration and political correctness conflict that brings a dictator to power to restore order who then surges antisemitism, abandons Israel and resumes the Holocaust.

And I dont think its any coincidence that Tolbert stereotypes Trump supporters as privileged. White privilege, whiteness and privileged are all concepts identical to antisemitism. How clever it is to use derogatory and bigoted labels against whites that ultimately turns against the Jews. Sounds like Fascism to me.

Re: “Sociopath-in-chief

Other antisocial traits are condescending sarcasm, smear campaigns, name-calling, deliberately misrepresenting your thoughts and feelings to the point of absurdity, blanket statements and generalizations. Sound familiar?
