Trump spoke at CPAC

Trump spoke at a conservative conference for 1 hour and 45 minutes … about himself.

How’s that “conservative”?

He claims to be able to end the Russia Ukraine conflict in one day when he gets elected.
(He said that Mexico would pay for the wall to be built when he was POTUS- it never happened)
He said that he will make NATO Allies contribute more irrespective of the size of each NATO member country.

He probably mentioned other stuff to but none of it was worth remembering.

No doubt, Trump is an arrogant man!

However, as I recall, he did get Mexico to pay for the wall. Mexico kept illegals from entering their country (and then ours) at Mexico's southern boarder. He also negotiated a deal that all migrants had to stay in Mexico during processing. Some of the physical wall got built despite Congress's best efforts to kill it. All in all the flood of illegal migrants, drugs and other contraband was reduced down to a trickle. Can't say that now though! I wish his policies were still in place😔
@samueltyler2 It seems ol' @SlaveEt is implacably skeptical about things that disagree with her preconceptions and implacably credulous about things that agree with her preconceptions; in short she suffers from absolute epistemic closure. SAD!!

Ol' SlaveEt couldn't handle the facts and the logic; she decided to block me, LOL!!!

@ElwoodBlues he claims to be a she. There is a portion of the population, if they are even real people, who be believe tRump is actually God. They seem too believe everything he says and has said, and will defend his be rand of politics no matter what rabbit hole it dives into. I can't believe that a real person can listen to the garbage put out by the current far right, and sees the videos, can believe what they believe.

Trump made some promises he's unlikely to keep? Well then! Let's just add a few trillion dollars worth of broken promises from 2016!!
In 2016, Trump
* Promised a tax cut that pays for itself;
* Promised to replace Obamacare with something better and cheaper that covers everyone;
* Promised a trillion dollars worth of infrastructure spending;
* Promised "We're going to see economic growth of 4, 5 & maybe 6%!";
* Promised to reduce deficit and eventually balance the budget;
* Promised to reduce prices of prescription drugs;
* Promised he had made the world safe from Kim Jong Un's missiles;
* Promised to LOCK HER UP!
* Promised to make Mexico pay for that wall;
* Promised to release his tax returns;
* Promised to cut the number of tax brackets, repeal the alternative minimum tax,eliminate the carried interest loophole, and allow individuals to deduct health care insurance premiums from taxes.

That's several trillion dollars worth of broken promises there, LOL!!
@SlaveEt Mediocre. Biden wasn't my first choice, and as president he only looks good in comparison to Trump. I don't support a 2nd term for Biden; I'd like to see him bow out.

But if it comes down to Biden vs Trump again I will be holding my nose again and voting for Biden again.

@ElwoodBlues Wait a minute! A replacement for Obamacare that would cover [i]everyone[/i]?

Isn't that....*gasp*.... the "socialist agenda?"
@DrWatson Ooooh that sneaky socialist agenda!!

Modern Conservatism is Authoritarianism. Nothing out of the ordinary here,

It's crazy how he says he will end the conflict when he's all about not sending money to Ukraine, in keeping with the others on his side.

Just like a few years ago when he withheld money from Ukraine for dirt on Biden. Yet idiots will have faith in this Cheeto lol
samueltyler2 · 80-89, M
@deadgerbil that will end it, and the nation of Ukraine! He tried that once already, it got him impeached, too bad the whimps in the Senate wouldn't convict him. We all heard the tapes!
@deadgerbil moreover, he claims he will end a war outside the US, but seems eager to start another Jan 6 at home ... he seems conflicted

Jesus, guys. Don't you get tired of being fed bull sh** for each and every meal?
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@Graylight I have a dopamine issue as well. For some people, the pleasure centers of the brain are stimulated by hate.

Long before anyone understood what dopamine was, there was an expression "erotic hatred." It did not imply that hatred was sexual, but rather that the person delighted in hatred in a manner analogous to how people react to sexual stimuli.
Graylight · 46-50, F
@DrWatson You're right, and it's so complex. Dopamine doesn't judge. Pills, booze, horses, women, speed, danger...all the same package to dopamine. I'd be naive to think I haven't benefited from a jolt of that particular vintage, whether it's sparring here or just stirring things up out of boredom.
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@Graylight I understand. I'm starting to limit how I participate in political discussions here, partly for that reason.

Trump only cares for him self.
@jimjim1969 Biden only cares for China.. cause he's bought and paid for
Elessar · 26-30, M
He would end the war in one day by siding with Russia and pulling all the support from Ukraine

/s but not too much
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
{@justanothername] just a lot of 🐂💩 that is all you can comment really 🤷‍♂️
justanothername · 51-55, M
@smiler2012 Well with Trump you start out with nothing and end up with nothing.
Convivial · 26-30, F
I did miss him, brekkie is just not the same
