Do you even care about "Sharpiegate?"

If so, please explain how it had any material effect on your life.

Did it make climate change worse?

Did it jack up your healthcare premiums and deductibles?

Did it lower your income?

Did it make more people shit on the streets of your Dem controlled city?

Did it make you consume more opiates?

Did it make you want to go on a shooting spree with an AR-15?

Did it make Walmart shoppers smell worse?

Did it make your student loan payments increase?

1. I guess one could ask

those questions in regard to just about any issue


Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Native American. How did that impact anyone else's life here?

Gays and transgendered people.... did they lower your income? Steal your guns?

Women's freedom of choice...how seriously did that impact your personal lives?


Lots of things that righties wretch about that have absolutely nothing to do with them in the long run, yet wretch they do.

She pretended she was an injun just to get a job,

My mom didn't murder me in the womb for her own personal convenience. I'd much rather live than be aborted. Are you that indifferent to your own existence?

34. And what I'm asking

is how that impacted YOUR life. Your income. Your health. Your job., etc.


And if your mom had aborted you in the womb, you would not be here to give a rat's ass. None of us would, if our moms had done it. .

Ridiculous argument.


And it still doesn't address my original question...

How have any of those issues....the ISSUES themselves.....how have they impacted your life?

If anyone can just decide to be a part of the protected class, there is no protected class.

Gratz feminism...or something.

Keep complaining about righty though, I'm sure that will make it go away...

35. really?

I don't know of ANY women who have been impacted by transgender issues.

Do you? How many women do you know who have had to deal with men in public bathrooms? In fact, I don't recall even hearing on the news about women being assaulted by transgendered people.


As for complaining about righty, though....I don't generally say much about them unless they write or say stupid things about the other side. Like the right is totally free from stupidity themselves.




You guys just hate being caught like that. So answer the questions or piss off....

How have any of the issues I raised impacted anyone negatively?

As far as his performance, there are a lot of people who would disagree. Obama's favorability right now is at about 60%; the president's isn't much above 40%.

Or stop drinking the orange Kool Aid.


I know I'm probably wasting time and energy, but here is a partial list of all the lies/misstatements tRump has told

https://www.factcheck.org/person/donald-trump/


One glaring thing he was WRONG on was that Mexico was going to pay for his stinking wall. He was either mistaken, or he LIED.

He was also wrong about Kim Jung Un. The "little rocket man" has OWNED tRump, who, like a four year old kid, loves anyone who compliments him

Oh, and he lied about not having two extramarital affairs even while he paid hush money to cover up affairs he says never happened.

4. Trump tweeted about the Squad to distract from changing rules about asylum.

Now while everyone obsessed over a sharpie, Trump diverted more defense spending to build the wall.

When he tweeted that cat and the laser pointer, he wasn't joking. That's exactly what he's doing. The media is just that stupid.

17. Trump is not a meteorologist, and as egotistical as he may be, I believe he knows that.

He presented what his staff gave him - he doesn't draw weather maps. He was given information that was obsolete by the time he presented it. His staff may be criticized for not updating it, and he may be criticized for not asking them if there were any changes before he went live. I haven't heard of any lives being lost because of this, and I haven't heard of any money being wasted because of it. Therefore, why should I, or anyone for that matter, GAF? It's a bit of a stretch to say that this is an impeachable event or, as some have implied, a felony.

Next time there's a dangerous weather event, they will disbelieve what the experts are telling them and some may die as a result.

42. True....

So did Michelle Obama's sleeveless dress.

And Hillary's pantsuit.

And football players kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem.

None of those things caused anyone pain and suffering.



And Obama's tan suit....

"Ronald Reagan wore tan suits during his presidency. So did Dwight D. Eisenhower, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

But on Aug. 28, 2014, when President Barack Obama showed up for a White House news conference dressed in beige, the light-colored suit became a matter of national import. Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.) fumed that the suit pointed to a “lack of seriousness” on the president’s part..."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/08/28/tan-suit-scandal-obama-trump/



All those things really mattered to the right

Nobody died. Nobody was in danger


And now they take an issue that could potentially harm lots of people who will no longer trust the NWS and call it "trivial".

Honestly, it's like living in some alternate universe.
