For much of the last three years, the impeachment of President Trump seemed inevitable. The left refused to accept his 2016 victory and ­remained determined to end his tenure.When he made mistakes or said dumb things, the frenzy boiled over. When his tax and regulation cuts unleashed the great American jobs machine, the resistance grew more determined.After Democrats seized the House in 2018, Speaker Nancy ­Pelosi became the firewall against impeachment. By the time she surrendered last fall,

FTA.. for starters we need a greater tolerance for differences of opinions. NO, no, no! That cannot be a starter because it wrongly puts the Left and the Right on the same footing for intolerance, hatred and violence. And that simply is not true. Unless we agree that it is the Left that bears a disproportionate responsibility, nothing downstream can even be discussed. Let alone agreed upon.

When they cobbled together the various ''victim'' groups, so they could pander to them for votes, they created a monster. Now, the democrat party has become an angry, unhappy, radical mess that is unfixable. It must be eliminated as a political entity.

"Trump phenomenon has helped create a chasm that could be too wide to bridge." No, the Trump phenomenon hasnt created this. Democrat reaction to his election has blown the chasm wide open. Starting with Nixon, in each successive presidential cycle, the left has gotten more extreme. When a republican wins, the dems loose their minds. When a dem wins, they seek retribution. The election of Trump is the right's response after decades of provocations. .

The crazed left have shown their true intent. The election of Donald Trump was an excuse for them to go berserk. No I don't want to be tolerant that's past so is get along and cross the aisle. The left hates Trump and his supporters, me. There are now two Americas on one side the patriots who love America and the haters who have and always will hate everything America stands for. I will never agree or get along with anyone on the left they are too diabolical.

Video has emerged showing Senator Elizabeth Warren on Monday being confronted by a man who says her plan to forgive student loan debt would be unfair to people like him who worked hard to pay off what they owed. The encounter took place during a Warren campaign stop in Grimes, Iowa. After the event, Warren greeted well-wishers who waited to shake her hand on the ‘selfie line.’ At one point, a man who appeared in his 40s or 50s stepped up a few feet from Warren and demanded to get his money back after paying off his daughter’s student loans.

More than 30% of inmates in Canadian prisons are Indigenous—even though aboriginal people make up just 5% of the country’s population, according to new figures released by a federal watchdog. In a scathing report published on Tuesday, the correctional investigator of Canada, Dr Ivan Zinger, described Indigenous overrepresentation in the country’s jails and prisons as “nothing short of a national travesty”. The figure is highest in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, where Indigenous people make up 54% of the prison population.(Snip) Indigenous inmates also serve more of their sentence before being granted parole–and reoffend at much higher levels than non-indigenous inmates.

Even cats could be running out of lives to while away under passengers’ seats at 30,000 feet. The US Department of Transportation on Wednesday proposed that only specially trained dogs qualify as service animals, which must be allowed in a passenger plane cabin at no charge. Airlines may be able to let passengers bring other animals on board, but hefty fees would apply.
