2017 - A Year Of Lies, Fake News, and More Lies

Lies and Fake News.  We sure got a boatload of it this past year. 

Since Nixon, Presidents have lied to the American people. So has the news media. We've grown somewhat accustomed to it over the years.

But this year - KaPoW!  they blind-sided us.  CNN, Washington Post, NYT, MSNBC, et al. - they just fabricated so much BS, very few people take them seriously.  I now use these news outlets as a scource for entertainment, rather than a scource of news.

And then there's Trump.  He sneaks some truths in once in while, but holy cow, its really hard to take him seriously.  Most of his commentary seems to be driven by hubris and bravado. 

In a 6 minute rally speech, he used the word tremendous SIXTEEN times.

For me, it has been a year of ever expanding resources and of great hope.

People all over the world are committed to rights and liberty and are very interested in protecting them.

Productive people are looking for someone to back, and they aren't finding them in the TwoParties or among the TwoParty's cronies.

It's unfortunate that in situations like this, young people are attracted to various "socialist" delusions or even anarchy. It's a recurring human problem.

You're lying about the great hope bit and you're as pissed off as the Chief. You just know you have to pretend to be happy for my sake. Proof of that is you couldn't stay positive and upbeat even to the end of that post.

It's all about me isn't it sweet ass. The complaining about socialism taking over has to be for my benefit.

Stay sweet and stay away from pork on the hoof.

He's graduated from very, very in every other line to big words like tremendous and macaroni. People can see the wheels turning in his head every time he opens his evil cakehole.

burnsred thinks he's great!

That last sentence is a lesser point, but I see what you mean.

We may have gotten to the point that Rome was in its final decline.  Bread and circuses. 

The media is a bad joke being played on the American people.  I have been expecting them to defeat Trump since he announced for the GOP primary, but so far he has outsmarted them at every turn.

Trump has planted the idea of fake news in your head.



Trump hasn't really outsmarted anybody and it's going to be enjoyable to see him taken down. I have a feeling that neither the DEms or the Repubs are going to be sorry to see him go.

Only extremists like you will shed a tear for him burnsred. Shame on you for supporting such evil trash.

Where is Trump right now?  Oh, yeah . . . in the White House. 

Get back to me when he's run out of there.

When Mueller takes Trump down both the Dems and the Repubs will sign a breathe of relief. Trump is destroying the Republican party but the system demands no congress critter speaks out because of the being 'primaried' threat.

Assuming that the deep state doesn't take him down and out first by some more violent means.

Libertarians opposed The Donald from the get go, and Hillary too, and Bernie and almost all the others who wanted to be President.

That's not news. What is news is the seemingly endless perfidy of our "legacy" news media who are trying to act like Pravda and report only the Party Line.
