    Der hund, spare me your biased polls. I don’t trust any polls today especially political ones and especially coming from a biased democrat. This country is polarized and so is polling. I have seen other polls that show his strength.

    No, I don’t like the guy. So before you throw that back at me let’s get that clear. I like how he has disturbed the status quo. I like how this whole election process has exposed the lying liberal left for what it really is. I never liked conservatard but after this election I know I disapprove of the libertards just as much.

    Trump appears now to have been sucked into the matrix like the rest of DC. His disruptiveness has probably now been tamed. He is now going to be just another DC dog and pony show. More of the same from a corrupt and bankrupt system.

    Boat, your opinion means nada to me. You are a flag waiving techno optimistic asshole. You are part of the reason there is so much anti-American hate on this board. You open your mouth and out comes raw dumbass and the anti-Americans have a feeding frenzy but can one blame them. You are the quinisential ugly American and you disgust me.

    Davy,

    Spoken like a true redneck from your part of the world. Do you plant any tomatoes, peppers etc in buckets?

    Davy, your support of the alternative truth/facts meme-the pinnacle of absurdity in human events- is well known.

    References? Otherwise you are talking out of your liberal lefty ass? FYI, there is a search function above you can access every one of my comments.

    Here is your most reference to the alt. truth/facts meme:

    “Der hund, spare me your biased polls. I don’t trust any polls today especially political ones and especially coming from a biased democrat. This country is polarized and so is polling. I have seen other polls that show his strength.”

    Alt. facts: “I don’t trust any polls today especially political ones and especially coming from a biased democrat.”

    Fact: Since its informal beginnings in 1988, the Quinnipiac University Poll is widely known and highly regarded for its exactness and thoroughness. The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, CNN, Reuters and more turn to the poll as a barometer of public opinion in matters of politics, elections, and issues of public concern.

    Alt. facts: “I have seen other polls that show his strength.”

    Fact: Across the board, all polls show Trump’s approval rating at toilet bowl level of 33-35%. The average for all first term, first quarter presidents is 63%.

    I entered,”Davy” into the search feature and only a sampling of your comments is displayed in non-chronological order.

    “I do not trust fake news democratic polls. You lied enough now you guys are untrustworthy.”

    There you go again. Time and again you make sweeping generalizations entirely lacking in specificity.

    I see that I have personally been added to your enemies list. Thank you for the badge of honor.

    It’s called tough love der hund. You can do better if you just leave the party line. Party politics is so passé. Join the 21st century of doom. No parties today achnowledge reality and much of the time they are lying. Do you want that to be on your badge? Duped?

    joe,

    “sorry dude, Islam was not around before the ‘west’, its younger.”

    I guess that would depend on how one defines the ‘West’.

    “For the purposes of this article, the “West” is that civilization which grew up in Europe after the Middle Ages, and which spread to the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and much of the rest of the world. It’s roots lay in medieval Europe, in which a Christian feudal society developed after the fall of the Roman empire; and before that, in the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome (which themselves built on foundations laid in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia).”

    “This mixed ancestry gave Western civilization a rich heritage to draw on. Greek achievements in mathematics, science, philosophy and art, and Roman developments in law, government and technology, all had a deep impact on later European civilization. The religion of Christianity, deriving from the Middle East but absorbed into the Graeco-Roman civilization, constituted one of the great pillars of the medieval and modern West. Added to these elements were major Indian, Chinese, Persian and Arabian achievements in science and technology, transmitted to Europe via the Islamic world. ”

    “They await the second coming so that Jesus can tell all Christians that hes only a man and they should never have followed him cause now they are doomed to hell, yet somehow this second coming of a dead man is supposed to kill (with his bare hands) the devil.”

    Interesting take joe, not sure where you got that from.

    Jesus in Islam

    Second coming

    “Eventually, Jesus will slay the Antichrist, and then everyone who is one of the People of the Book (ahl al-kitāb, referring to Jews and Christians) will believe in him. Thus, there will be one community, that of Islam.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_in_Islam

    Something to keep in mind joe; The Quran has never been altered, edited, or translated, and to this very day remains in it’s original form. The same cannot be said for the Bible.

    Whether one chooses to believe in these ancient texts, or not, is an entirely different matter. Billions of people still do, and they have been instrumental in the direction that history has taken for the past 2000 years.
