    So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have “begged” for this deal-looked like war would break out. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!

    I'd put 'Our Country' in the class of 'the state'. Your panties seem to simply need argument for argument's sake, mixed in with that koolaid desire to dismiss of yours.

    btw, seems some trump supporters like Acosta. They must not have gotten your memo...

    The tweet wasn't Trump's... might wanna reread your own post.

    Where you put things? Where does "our country" come in? It was state vs. people. Might wanna reread your own post again.

    Some Trump supporters like Acosta? Shlt, we all like him. He's pure comedy. A guaranteed laugh at the daily breifings. Did you not see the connection to yourself?

    Oh, those panties of denial you wear.That's the comedy I see coming from you. A tragic comedy.

    I've no time to deal with your panties of denial today. I have a job where my taxes go towards the victims of the poor red states who complain about the blue states.

    Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

    Now we know why the trump lawyers made the 'collusion is no crime' statement. Totally legal to collude with the russians.
    There's your nothing burger, dude. It's now OK to sell the country out for personal gain like getting the highest office in the state. Country. 'Merica. Whatever. You'll find something to complain about in my post, lol.

    personal reponsiblity?

    It’s not just that some states are getting way more in return for their federal tax dollars, but the disproportionate amount of federal aid that some states receive allows them to keep their own taxes artificially low. That's the argument WalletHub analysts make in their 2014 Report on Best and Worst States to Be a Taxpayer.
    There are various ways of thinking about what WalletHub's "state dependency" map tells us. One approach is to shine light on the red-states-as takers paradox: Dominated by Republican voters who profess their distaste for the federal government and its social programs, these are the very states that rank highest on the dependency index. That, for example, is how Business Insider handled the story:

    [W]ho really benefits from government spending? If you listen to Rush Limbaugh, you might think it was those blue states, packed with damn hippie socialist liberals, sipping their lattes and providing free abortions for bored, horny teenagers. ... (tucker limbaugh)

    As it turns out, it is red states that are overwhelmingly the Welfare Queen States. Yes, that's right. Red States—the ones governed by folks who think government is too big and spending needs to be cut—are a net drain on the economy, taking in more federal spending than they pay out in federal taxes. They talk a good game, but stick Blue States with the bill.

    Fair enough. That's a catchy perspective. And there are few things more fun than exposing hypocrisy.

    ^^^ Hehe... that's how its done. You take an idea of what someone thinks Rush might say and make it look like he did, but he didn't. "you might think it was those blue states, packed with damn hippie socialist liberals, sipping their lattes and providing free abortions for bored, horny teenagers" is an opinion expressed by John Thorpe at Benzinga, not a quote from Rush.

    FWIW, all of Rush's stuff, three hours every day, is transcribed onto his website, so making up things he may have said is pretty silly. Its all in the archives and free to look at.

    I guess that's why you bolded it, made it red, put smilies on each end, and put it in the Fake News thread.

    And for more fake news fun... this is taken from PoliticalDig.com:
    If you listen to Mike Pence, you might think it was those blue states, packed with damn hippie socialist liberals, sipping their lattes and providing free abortions for bored, horny teenagers.
    Not just fake stuff, but plagiarized fake stuff.

    There are eleven kids living in an off the grid compound in New Mexico being starved and being taught and trained to become skool shooters by their caretakers, who are Islamic radicals.

    Its not a major news story.

    Nor is Dianne Feinstein's aide of twenty years being a Chinese spy.

    Or the Honduran who had returned after being deported that raped a child after being released by Philadelphia, that ignored ICE detainers.

    It not just what you say, but what you don't.

    Re: Fake News. Examples of it from a dying format known as the MSM.

    talk about imagination. vox is putting a magnifying glass on trumps rhetoric.

    President Trump has turned the Salvadoran-American street gang into public enemy No. 1.

    President Donald Trump and his White House call them “animals.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions says “they must be and will be stopped.”

    The administration talks about the Salvadoran-American gang MS-13 with the hatred and intensity once reserved for apex predators, lingering on the gory details of murders they’ve committed. A fact sheet the White House sent out in May — titled “What You Need To Know About The Animals of MS-13” — highlighted five brutal cases and included details like this: “In Maryland, MS-13’s animals are accused of stabbing a man more than 100 times and then decapitating him, dismembering him, and ripping his heart out of his body.”

    MS-13 has become the face of the Trump administration’s favorite trope: the idea that people from other countries are sneaking into America and importing violence and crime. Talking about the gang has allowed Trump to associate crime with immigration without having to deal with the inconvenient truth that immigrant crime rates are, if anything, lower than those of the native-born.
    By CBP’s estimates, 0.02 percent of the unaccompanied minors who came to the US — one in every 5,000 migrants — had some MS-13 affiliation. That might be an undercount — or, conversely, it could count migrants who were wrongly suspected of being MS-13-affiliated because a Border Patrol agent misunderstood their tattoos, or because they had relatives who were in MS-13 but weren’t themselves, or who had been coerced into joining the gang and had fled to the US to escape its clutches.

    But with MS-13, perception has been more powerful than reality. More than anything President Obama did, the 2014 border crisis activated the immigration anxiety Donald Trump would ride to the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

    As a candidate, Trump didn’t talk much about MS-13 in particular. He was usually happy to talk generally about how dangerous immigrants — or, at his most specific, unauthorized immigrants — were. After the election, however, he appears to have been alerted to the MS-13 threat — and since then, both he and Attorney General Sessions have turned the gang into their rhetorical public enemy No. 1.

    MS-13 is a perfect foil for Trump. It allows him to connect the reality that gangs have taken over much of El Salvador with the fear that parts of America have become similarly lawless and unfamiliar — abetted by foolish local “sanctuary city” governments.

    Furthermore, it allows him to do that without saying anything that sounds like an obvious racist dog whistle. When Trump said Mexico was “sending” rapists and murderers over the border, people across the political spectrum recognized that he was playing on racist fears. But the same criticism doesn’t resonate as much when Trump talks about an actual criminal gang.
