"No longer can we compound attacks on truth with our silent acquiescence. No longer can we turn a blind eye or a deaf ear to these assaults on our institutions," Flake said in his speech. "An American president who cannot take criticism -- who must constantly deflect and distort and distract -- who must find someone else to blame -- is charting a very dangerous path. And a Congress that fails to act as a check on the President adds to the danger." Flake also compared Trump's attacks on the news media to the rhetoric of late Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and highlighted the longstanding consequences for Trump's attacking the truth.
..you want to hear a certain thing, you don't really want open interesting thought.
Is that your interesting thought?
No one cares. It's the same old same old "discussion" you want to have..
Close, As long as there is no personal attacks, Id like a discussion. Those wacky mods are ok with my being attacked, but frown on my rebuttals. But your right. Its usually the same ol thing. When my grammar or spelling takes a front seat to the topic, I know someone is getting heated.
No one cares. I don't believe that for a second. Texas is such a red state. KU is such a red place. I can see why its easy to attack a blue dot. Hopefully I say something that connects with someone. i.e. Why do regular people vote republican. My profile explains it all. "Politics is the only game in town where the outcome effects everyone".
If you'll look above my post, YOURS was about why no one but YOU is responding to YOU and YOUR comments on YOUR thread. Lol
See a commonality there?? When you post a thread and not one person responds, most people realize it's bc its NOT interesting to people, and no one cares to respond FOR A REASON.
Do you really think anyone here doesn't already know exactly what you already think and will say? It's boring, not interesting and your demeanor makes it worse bc you act so sure and cocky and you're wrong a lot and post highly inaccurate things. When you're called out, it's "never mind, lol" after you've acted so superior and righteous.

Again, your posts attack and have nothing to do with the topic at hand. lol. btw...No one but you SSFG is "calling me out". Why are you a mod?
Im just trying to have a conversation and draw a consensus about Jeff Flake. Id pm you my thoughts but you have blocked me. It seems like you can dish it out. But cant take it. Ive got your number, and I'll call you out. But Id rather have a conversation about Jeff Flake.
Superior and self righteous. hmmm. If you cant stay on topic. Take your soap box sermon to the 1st church of sags.
