President Trump Has Opened Our Eyes
By: lennylynx • • 51 Comments • 3 years ago
“President Trump continues to serve only the far right fringe. What he has taught us is that this 'fringe' is actually 40% of the country.”
Before Donald Trump became President, I used to have a hard time figuring out how so many people could continue voting Republican, given their total corporate subservience and utter disregard for the American people. A certain number is understandable. A certain percentage could actually be...
Centrists In The Age Of Trump
By: lennylynx • • 130 Comments • 4 years ago
“"But being conciliatory is not always the right approach. The correct response to outrageous behavior by the President, is to show outrage."”
Even before Trump, it had been getting harder and harder to understand how centrists could remain in the center. The Republican party slid farther and farther into the swamp, to the point that they were little more than a gang of corporate thugs. How could ANYONE, save the most cultish of all...
The Unacceptable Support of President Trump
By: lennylynx • • 282 Comments • 4 years ago
“"There is nothing to talk about here, no chance of reconciliation. If you support Trump, after all he has said and done, you are simply not a...”
As the horror show in the White House churns on, the continued support of Donald Trump by such a large segment of American society becomes more and more outrageous. How can any normal, reasonable person accept Trump support as a valid, respectable position? The insane amount of corruption,...
Are you KIDDING ME??

"This is an outrage, but it's ok if the President is completely ignorant about virtually everything, got it" This was deemed an 'off topic' violation as a response to an article on Cortez displaying a lack of knowledge about Palestine. This is a violation while the righties talk about nothing...
Posting Hate of Large Organizations

I had a comment pulled yesterday which was my honest, considered opinion of the Catholic Church. I won't repeat it as it is against the rules here, but it was definitely a very negative, and yes, hateful thing to say about the CC. I don't deny the statement was hateful, nor do I deny that I...
Christmas Needs a Remake
By: lennylynx • • 26 Comments • 5 years ago
Who says discussion sites can't change opinions? The recent talks about Christmas have shifted my position on the use of the word 'Christmas,' that does bother a certain group of secular thinkers. While right wingers are being a little too dramatic about the term 'Christmas' being under...
Who is Robert Mueller?
By: lennylynx • • 30 Comments • 5 years ago
The character and integrity of Robert Mueller has been under attack lately, from Republican politicians, talk show hosts, and even several of our own members here at Newstalkers. I can't help but wonder if all of these people attacking him, are familiar with just who this man is. The following...
Fake News, Donald Trump, and the Left/Right Debate
By: lennylynx • • 19 Comments • 5 years ago
The left/right debate in this country is pretty much at an impasse these days. As many have observed in recent years, the two sides can no longer agree on a basic set of facts to debate from. Without this, of course, there can be no debate, it can't even get off the ground. Increasingly,...
