    From cr1mson@316:36/1 to All on Sat Dec 15 23:00:19 2018
    What are your throughts of Trump? Is he a good President? Did you vote for him? Did you vote?

    What do you think about the wall he plans on building closing the southern boundry of the U.S.?

    Are things getting better or worse? The more things, the more things stay
    the same? Does change mean anything significant?

    How can we better ourselves as citizens?

    Whoever is in charge, The Good Lord put them there (Daniel 2:21 --
    "The Lord Sets Up Kings, and He Removes Kings"). Admittedly, when Jesus
    was on Earth the first time, Herod wasn't what I'd call "a model ruler".

    What do you think about the wall he plans on building closing the southern C>boundry of the U.S.?

    The illegals, stealing things from those who came here lawfully, need
    to be kept out. Plus, I'm a firm believer in "one person, one vote".
    These screaming that "photo ID discriminates against minorities" just
    want to hide their nefarious deed of voting more than once. While I
    consider voting part of my "civic duty", I treat it like prepping for a colonoscopy...the electioneering is crappy, and I want to get it over
    with!! (how's that for a comparative analogy??) <G>.

    Are things getting better or worse? The more things, the more things stay C>the same? Does change mean anything significant?

    Paris is burning...and I understand you don't want to be outdoors in
    New Orleans...as a tourist or a resident...due to the crime rate.

    How can we better ourselves as citizens?

    There are many ways, but good behavior toward others would be a start.

    I've heard that said before, that God places the authorities and leaders. I know it's not an easy job being put in the position as a President with all
    the mess that was already here. I know, I wouldn't want to do it.

    Lolz! Pretty crappy. :D

    I feel it's just getting worse everywhere you go. There's no where safe anymore and privacy is a thing of the past.

    How can we better ourselves as citizens?

    There are many ways, but good behavior toward others would be a start.

    I agree with you on good behavior. There's just so much bad in this world, yet, there is SO much good too. I feel we should move towards turning around the negative to a positive for everything, there is positive and negative. I wouldn't put the President to blame for a misbehaving citizen, yet I wouldn't rule out the President being perfect causing more harm than good either.
    We've got to weigh it out. Work for the common good.

    I wouldn't want to be PRESIDENT of ANYTHING. I'm what's known as the Circulation Chairman and Webmaster of the Arkansas State Square Dance Federation. Basically, I keep the "ever dwindling" subscriber database
    for the print edition of "The Modern Square", and the website (not
    fancy, but it gets the job done). Both the print edition, and its
    companion e-Edition are now published just 4 times a year...the cost of
    postage and printing were eating us alive...and we're not the only
    organization in that situation. I hear that First Class Postage will be
    above 50 cents the first of the year, if it isn't already.

    Lolz! Pretty crappy. :D

    Kind of a stinky thread, that. :P

    I feel it's just getting worse everywhere you go. There's no where safe C>anymore and privacy is a thing of the past.

    No matter what neighborhood you're in...although some parts of towns
    are worse than others.

    I agree with you on good behavior. There's just so much bad in this world,

    I long for the earlier time, when you could leave your doors unlocked
    at night, the pace was much slower, and you didn't have to worry about
    road rage, kids disobeying their parents or teachers, etc.

    Yeah, if you're made of money like our President, it's not an issue, just pay people off, do what you want, when you want, wherever you want and it's all mash potatoes. Postage is high and it's going to keep getting higher. Probably after our time, there will probably won't be much of postal service anymore. I mean c'mon, you don't even need to leave your house now to eat

    I know that for a fact. You know when you're young, at least back in our
    time, I know you're a generation or so distant than I am, but we didn't have
    a worry in the world. I never heard of school shootings and all the crap on
    TV like we do now. Since the world is open to all for anyone with an
    internet connection and something to do social media with, there's are just going down the pipes.

    The "deep state" and the party who isn't in power, can't stand Trump.
    What is killing the Postal Service and the U.S. is that the Postal
    employees and members of Congress GET THE SAME PAY AND BENEFITS once
    retired, as they did when they were working. No wonder we're broke. If
    they got 20% of the total pay and benefits, they'd see how the rest of
    us are struggling.

    I eat at home much of the time now...too many bills to worry about
    eating out. I've dropped nearly 50 pounds over the last few weeks,
    eating only 1 meal a day.

    Lolz! Pretty crappy. :D

    I'm not going to jump on this too hard, however Trump should NOT even be
    in office. 1) The election was clearly rigged, by Russia. 2) Trump has never been in any sort of branch of the military, he's got failing business, and currently runs a clown show.

    Come on, where have you ever seen the people that are supposed to be working FOR him, getting fired, or quitting and arguing against him?


    I would like to see our Pledge of Alligence to the U.S. and Holy Bibles ba in school. I feel like things have gotten worse since our children aren't being brought up to how us elders were when we were in school. There's no privacy and it's dangerous everywhere. Our kids need something to grow up with and that's respect for others, among other things.

    This will never happen anymore, because everyone is so afraid of offending someone else. The one that really offended me, was the stoppage of the Pledge of Allegiance in the schools. Because we have such a mixed bag of people in this world.

    On another note, how do you feel about this wall being built? I don't understand why the focus is being put on the south? Is this the start of something? Airports and sea ports carry in people too. Thoughts?

    The 5 billion dollar wall shouldn't even be in the conversation anymore.
    This orange haired doofus needs to get out of office as soon as possible.
    I'll even go as far to say I am in his party. I should be supportive of what
    he does. However it's just the opposite.

    There's NO reason for a 5 BILLION dollar wall. That's BILLION with a B. That's outrageous!! How about spend less than half of that, and use drones with technology, I'm sure that would cost a heck of a lot less. How many satellites do we have in space that can take pictures of our borders? I'm so opposed to this wall.
