Clearly it states when they had to get rid of the elephants, it tanked. But why waste time trying to explain to a brain washed liberal?


No, clearly it said there was a dramatic drop in ticket sales after the Elephants were removed. It also says attendance has been declining for a decade, and it also says there were a number of reasons, one of which was removing the Elephants. As the CEO said, "There isn't any one thing," said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment.

You do know it's spelled "denial," right?

Anyone who pays attention to U.S. politics knows how far both parties have moved away from what their parties believed in decades past. Based on his beliefs at that time, do you think (Alabama Gov.) George Wallace would more likely be a Democrat or a Republican in 2017?

The Washington Post is one of America's leading daily newspapers. I realize they're not loved on the same level as a Breitbart in your world, but yes, they're a legitimate news source. Sorry to disappoint. Also, I believe it's you who just shared an MSNBC clip, wasn't it?

I do have to ask, why do you feel the need to focus on me instead of on the topic at hand? I talk about Drump, and you then try to make it about me. I don't know you, so your opinion of me doesn't matter. How about focusing on (trying to) defend "your guy?"

Like, explaining why he freaks out EVERY TIME SNL does a Drump skit. https://www.yahoo.com/tv/snl-trump-baldwin-fox-news-sean-spicer-191649493.html You'd think he was the first candidate/president they've ever made fun of. How about actually acting presidential (or at least try to) and focus on the many, many tasks he has ahead of him instead of responding to every perceived slight? I've never seen such a thin-skinned person. In his words, "SAD!"

Gotta go with the Uncle on this one. Last time I went to the circus, maybe 18 years ago, I ended up back with the animals post-performance. Swore right then and there I would never support the circus again. It was not cool.

I focused on you because you focus on me. Here's an idea, don't comment on my posts, and no matter how cherry picked your "facts" are, I'll not comment on yours. Frankly, it's a waste of my time. Your News sources are well known to be liberal slanting and anti Trump. Your a fine example of one of the few things Glenn Beck has been right about. Your world is emursed in liberal news. It's all you read, and it's all you believe. Very sad. At least people are figuring out CNN. The leading source of "Fake News". Reality is, Obama's economy sucked. Eight years of a 1% GDP. Yes,employment is up. Full of $9.00 jobs and people working two, sometimes three to get by. I could go on about giving Iran Billions in ransom, being a international laughing stock, but again, reality is wasted on you. again, you can ignore my posts. Think of the time you'll gain not cherry picking and distorting, and I can ignore your blather. I'll just let Fact Finder tear you apart. I love it when liberals find one little thing to twist and then he piles on the facts. Haven't seen that for a while. Besides, after Friday, when the trash is removed from the White House, I think he's pulling the plug on this thread anyway. By the way, I think everyone here has figured out your a Sanders Socialist. I'd be ashamed of that too if I were you. Oh ya, your Trump, Russia , CIA story pretty much has been exposed as horse shit. Of course on your news sources, you won't read anything about it. If Trump is pissing off someone like you, GOOD !


I welcome Fact Finder attempting to "tear (me) apart." Actually, the average GDP growth is about 2.1%. (Not great, by any means).

Speaking of laughing stock, read the articles on ANY news outlet about how European leaders are reacting to Trump's latest spew.

I'm not ashamed of what I believe, and no, I'm not a Sanders socialist (you're big on trying to label people. Sorry I don't fit in your pigeon holes. I know it must be frustrating for you). I've said nothing about being in favor of universal healthcare or free college tuition, have I?

"My" Trump, Russia, CIA story? I didn't write the thing, but apparently there's enough smoke there on Drump's Russian ties and their meddling in the election to warrant a congressional investigation, so time will tell on that.

Drump does piss me off, because I care about our country and I have zero confidence in his ability not to screw it up six ways from Sunday. Then again, if I piss off someone like you (and from your multiple rants about me, I'm confident I do) and show you that your emperor has no clothes, my day's not wasted.

I check out Fox News.com on a daily basis. In fact, I read it before I go to any other websites. You know, because they're "fair and balanced." Sorry to shoot down your whole, "you're emursed (it's "immersed," FYI) in liberal news" argument.

I don't comment on your stories because you're the one who posts them. Don't flatter yourself. I comment on things I see I disagree with, or I know to be false, misleading or incorrect. You just seem to post a lot of that stuff. :wink:

Was exposed on Fox, and a few other websites to be exactly what I say most, if not all of your posts are, a lie. Obama's avg GDP was1%. Lying again.Like I said, a waste of time. :roll:


To quote Axl Rose, "It's so easy...'

“The average growth rate for economic recoveries since the 1960s is 3.9 percent ranking the Obama recovery, with an average GDP growth rate of just 2.1 percent, among the slowest in history,” said Sen. Dan Coats (R.-Ind,), who chairs the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress.

But, I mean, what does the Republican chairman of the Joint Economic Committee know?

A laugh every time someone hangs Hillary's loss and Trumps win on Russian hacking or Russian tampering. First off, our government leaders should be the last ones pointing fingers on this subject. Due to the fact of how our government has interfered and attempted to manipulate foreign elections. The most recent example being their involvement to undermine the re-election of Netanyahu. As to the election, any alleged foreign "tampering" or "hacking" is far from the reason Hillary lost the election. The democrats lost because they chose a extremely flawed and questionable candidate. Hillary was the one that chose to setup the questionable private email server while being SOS. Hillary chose to then lie and fabricate when explaining what she did while using it. Which of course was exposed by the FBI investigation. It was Hillary that chose not to distance herself from her connections to The Clinton Foundation both while being SOS and running for POTUS. It was Hillary's campaign that chose to collude with democratic activist groups to incite violence at the opposing candidates rallies and got caught red handed. It was Hilary that attacked and delegitimized millions of voters by calling them a "basket of deplorables". With how long she has been in politics, one would think she would have known that last thing you do is attack or disparage the voter. It was Hillary's campaign staff that got caught colluding with the press on articles and with getting debate questions in advance. It was the DNC that got caught colluding with Hillary to ensure she was the winner of their primary election. When you look at all this stuff, her loss has more to do with these issues then some "outside" influence.

None of which dismisses the evidence Russia tampered in our election, which ANY American, regardless of political affiliation, should be incensed over. But apparently there's quite a few who don't see a problem with it since it likely benefitted their candidate. That's messed up. On a related note, I'd love to hear Trump say something about foreign policy that hasn't already been said by the Kremlin. Seriously, he sounds like "Putin's Greatest Hits."

They are also looking at nuclear options with the current idiot in the White House. The only other story on Trump is they applaud him for admitting tha US should not have gone into Iraq. Of course that would have turned out far better had Obama not fucked it up and pulled out. He could have made a new deal, as Bush suggested to him. Caught you lying again, unless your using CNN Asia or Europe. As I've said many times, if Americans could watch that, they would understand why the world hated us and screamed treason.

The Obama economy summed up.

http://budget.house.gov/uploadedfiles/p ... record.pdf


So, let me understand. I shared the figure cited by Sen. Dan Coats (R.-Ind,), who chairs the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress, and so I'm "lying?" Right.

You're pulling from Pravda, Comrade? You sure love you some Russia, don't you? Drump would be proud.

Would it have turned out far better if Obama had not pulled troops out? We'll never know. You're an expert on military policy now? Bush signed the "Status of Forces" agreement, correct? Obama could have done a far better job of negotiating the terms under which the troops would have stayed, but blame doesn't lay solely on him.

Drump (now) says we never should have gone into Iraq? Man, what incredible political insight. What a keen mind he must have to come to that conclusion. We shouldn't have gone into Iraq. In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet.

Frankly I have zero trust in our federal government which includes our intelligence agencies and anything associated with it. Which means I am skeptical of "the evidence". If anything this is a "pot meet kettle" situation. I find it highly suspicious that our leaders in government paid little attention to foreign hacking situation prior to election season. It is clear that the alleged hacking was not the "lynch pin" to her loss. It's all just a smoke screen to detract from the REAL reasons for her loss and to detract from what was uncovered during and after the election. Foreign hacking didn't create things like more votes being submitted then the number of registered voters in Detroit. Mind you, said votes were for the losing candidate. Americans should be more incensed by all the "home grown" corruption and rigging. That is the bigger threat then anything coming from outside our nation.

Speaking of being skeptical of "the evidence," that whole Detroit thing smacks to me of human error based on what I've read. If you want to talk about "home grown" rigging that actually happens (and extremely often), let's talk gerrymandering like the kind the GOP tried to pull off in NC.

Sincere question: how do you propose they solve the problem within their own religion? Radicals aren't going to listen to reason.

I watched the clip. Yes, furniture doesn't have an evil ideology. Having said that, I'm not going to huddle in fear in my house because there's an incredibly small chance (one in 20 million) that if I go to a public event in the U.S., I'm going to be killed by a terrorist act, and I'm not going to not move the couch downstairs when the time comes because it may fall on me.

Yeah, all those dead people that ended up voting was due to simple "human error". Give me a break. It's clear the people that are running the elections are rigging things and that is a bigger threat then something that could come from the outside. No matter how you slice it, one act doesn't justify or excuse the other.

I don't have all the answers but it's clear that the problem germinates from within the religion itself. They could at least remove those clerics that continue to spew the radical viewpoints that the moderates claim do not represent them. They could expose and turn over to the authorities those in the Muslim communities that are involved in all the various aspects of terrorism and further it's cause instead of turning a blind eye to it. They could start to reform the religion that does away with the practices that go against the aspects of human rights and personal freedom. If they were to abolish the practice of Sharia Law, that would be a big step in the right direction.

The point isn't about being in fear that someone won't go out in public. It's about seeing the problem for what truly is. It isn't about that even though It doesn't impact a certain part of a population that it isn't a problem that could effect said part of the population. It's about the Islamic terrorism that goes on daily around the globe. It's the fact that it is growing in areas were it hasn't before. The whole accidents with furniture and comparing it to a religious terrorism movement is not an argument. It like saying since a child has more of a chance of drowning in a pool then being molested by an adult we shouldn't concern ourselves with child molestation.

It sure does. They found six more Clinton votes and 131 Trump votes. After new numbers started coming in and Clinton was losing more and more, that idea sure faded fast. Why don't you scan back a few pages and read postings. Right now, you look like a liar.


I look like a liar? Again, I'm just citing recognized news sources, Einstein. http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2016/12/18/detroit-ballots-vote-recount-election-stein/95570866/

Here are a couple of other explanations offered. "Reasons for the under-counted and over-counted votes are unclear, although in some cases people may have signed in to vote, then left before casting their ballots because of long lines. Machine malfunctions also may have played a role; on Election Day, more than 80 optical vote scanners broke down in Detroit."

The head of the state elections board said, "“We don’t have any suspicion of fraud. We generally approach this as human error ." Now, you can choose to call him a liar, but by stating what he said, that doesn't make me one.

But, as Drump suggests about the Russian tampering, if it had no effect on the outcome of the election, who cares? Drump lost Detroit in a landslide, not by a couple of hundred votes.

Nope, just showing you up as the liar you are, then you try to spin out by attacking me, just like an asshole...By the way, Obama could have cut a deal to leave a force in Iraq to help keep it stable, which it WAS when he took office. Dumbasses like you think it was thye right thing to do just splitting. I would wager you "think" Obama did a great job with Syria.Was Obama the Comander and chief, yes. He NEVER even tried to talk with Iraq. He simply said "Time to go." By the way, your sources are wrong again and Trump is on record saying we shouldn't have gone into Iraq within the first few months of the war. Of course you are only going to read and repeat liberal propaganda.Obama," Hey Mitt, the cold war called. they want their policies back". Hey Barrack, Putin beat you like a bitch. How sad for our country.


He didn't come out unequivocally against the war until a year after it started, not "within the first few months." Guess it's time to start throwing out the "liar" accusation, right? http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jun/22/donald-trump/trump-still-wrong-his-claim-opposed-iraq-war-ahead/ Condemn the source all you want, but Drump's quotes are taken from his interviews. Guess your propaganda is mistaken...again.

"Most damning to Trump’s claim is a September 2002 interview in which Trump said he supported the Iraq invasion. Shock jock Howard Stern asked Trump if he supported the looming invasion. Trump responded, 'Yeah, I guess so.'"

The tape doesn't lie.

You have no idea how I feel about the troop withdrawal, and as you'll see if you actually read my post, I said Obama could have cut a deal to leave a force in Iraq. Pay attention.

I would say in an election where all the polls were wrong (I believe purposely) and half the country voted for Trump and he has had several "successes" already re jobs and such, that 40% number is about as real as the tooth fairy.

That could absolutely be true. I think it's likely lower than that. "Half the country" didn't vote for Drump. 26% of registered voters did. :lol: :lol:

Looks like the inauguration is gonna' be "yuge." It must be all those people who want to see 3 Doors Down and "Big and Rich." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/local/wp/2017/01/12/200-buses-have-applied-for-city-parking-on-inauguration-day-1200-have-applied-for-the-womens-march/?postshare=701484268731497&tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.2ba5a88ed20d

Drump tweeted, "People are pouring into Washington in record numbers." No, Drump, they're not, no matter how much you wish it were so.

He's also tweeting about John Lewis again. Lewis had said this was the first inauguration he's missed since being in Congress, but he skipped GW's as well. Now Drump is calling him out on it, which is infinitely amusing coming from a man who spews blatant falsehoods on a daily basis (like the one I just posted).

At least all of the protesting this election season has been grass roots, true, deep-down feelings. Oh, wait, more ads asking people to protest for money? You don't say. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201 ... 0-agitate/

Creating American jobs, huh? I expect Drump will be tweeting to try and take credit for it shortly. Given only 200 bus passes have been applied for, I'm sure he'll be happy to have those protestors there to boost attendance numbers. :lol: :lol:

You are a liar again. He skipped Bush's for the same reason. It's purely a stunt, and frankly beneath the actions of a senator.


You really should try to pay more attention. I mention G.W. right there in black and white. Do you feel the Republicans who skipped Obama's inauguration also displayed actions beneath their office?

The article doesn't say there's only been 200 bus parking passes requested? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/local/wp/2017/01/12/200-buses-have-applied-for-city-parking-on-inauguration-day-1200-have-applied-for-the-womens-march/?postshare=701484268731497&tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.75c3b634899a
