    Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!”

    Mason City’s downtown is going downhill fast. Nobody comes to the Friday Night concerts and the druggies have taken over central park. So glad I moved my ultrasound business out of the downtown.

    Continually posting that Trump is a “draft dodger” and possibly has bone spurs is redundant, everybody knows it. Besides he’s not the only president/politician that “dodged” the draft.

      Allen, you really are a simple-minded fellow.
      It is very easy to see why you are a Trump supporter.

      You obviously suffer from the Dunning-Kruger Effect:
      “The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is.”

      People like you Allen, with substantial, measurable deficits in your knowledge or expertise lack the ability to recognize those deficits and, therefore, despite making error after error, tend to think you are performing competently when you are not.

    Trump reminds me of the drunk wannabe Alpha male in the bar that keeps talking about how great he is and how he can beat up anybody. Then when someone stands up to him he refuses to do anything and pretends it was a joke.

    Then, when the person leaves, Trump brags to his idiot base how he was lucky he walked away.
    The entire GOP summarized actually.

    THIS is what self-delusion looks like, people. Newsom is more properly describing the fracturing of the Democrat Party by Extreme Liberal Progressives. Many older “knee jerk” Democrats that vote for that party out of sheer repetition are going to leave them as they get more and more extreme, it would already have happened if the media wasn’t covering for them.

    WASHINGTON — In a state of panic after their father dispatched troops to the Middle East, Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr., have both sought medical notes from a Manhattan podiatrist.

    According to an official statement from Donald Trump, Jr.,’s spokesperson, John Barron, Jr., the two Trump boys obtained the medical notes “out of an abundance of caution.”

    The podiatrist’s notes, which were made public by Barron, paint a picture of two otherwise healthy young men with foot problems that can only be described as dire.

    According to the podiatrist, Eric Trump is unable to operate his feet while chewing gum, while one of Donald Trump, Jr.,’s feet appears to be permanently lodged in his mouth.

    Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) demanded that President Donald Trump present the nation with X-rays of his feet to prove once and for all the bone spurs in his heels he claimed for a medical exemption from the Vietnam War draft.
    Bob Kerrey was awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry above and beyind the call of duty.

    Kerrey, a former US Navy SEAL who lost part of his right leg during the war, said that “you don’t grow out of bone spurs.”
    If Trump had them in the 1960’s, Kerrey said, he’d still have them now, unless he underwent surgery, which Trump has never mentioned.

    “While John McCain was flying combat operations in Vietnam, you were falsifying that you had bone spurs in order not to go to Vietnam,” said Kerrey.

    Donald Trump was and is a draft-dodging coward.

    The incompetence of the Obama Administration that included putting illegal immigrants’ children in cages has all been blamed on President Trump and it is disgusting and wrong. Liberal America let Obama get away with so much and when Trump took office these same liberals being the hypocrites that they are used this incompetence against Trump. Corrupt Washington DC along with many republicans are not honest about this. The real truth about the Obama Administration is coming out in drips and drops but nevertheless we are beginning to see what it really was and it is not a pretty picture.

They ended with low or no debt and didn’t ask the tax payers for a thing. They took responsibility for themselves and skipped the “college experience”. Should they be expected to now pay for those who made the choice to spend money with no plan of how to pay for it?

    This will not come as shock to the majority of Americans, but it’s pretty conclusive – Donald Trump supporters are dumbasses.

    What the vast majority of Americans realize is that very few Trump supporters have anything to offer intellectually.
    They can’t offer a thoughtful “opposing point of view” that anyone can learn from, because they’re just mindless followers of a personality cult.
