Hey, 45, this here Ryan fellow really wants to be your lapdog.  Do your thing and destroy his life for his allegiance.  You are AMAZING at that.

Paul Ryan will defend anything to push forward his plan to transfer Americas tax burden from the hereditary aristocracy to the peasantry.

If you're "still learning" about racism at age 71 and don't have all the kinds of retardation, you have no excuse and are a lost cause.

Lost Thought 00: Paul Ryan will defend anything to push forward his plan to transfer Americas tax burden from the hereditary aristocracy to the peasantry.


That has been Paul Ryan's dream ever since he got accepted into that fraternity.

Another choice picture of Ryan with his mouth open for Trump insertion.
 
2017-10-02 08:10:45 AM  
Well, like I said on the Charlottesville thing, it was- there were like, three comments. One of them was great, two of them- no, four comments, I think. Two good. Two bad. You know? I think, like you say, like I said before, he's learning.

See?  That's exactly the kind of thing Ryan is talking about.

In the space of a single sentence, just a few words really, Trump went from knowing it was okay to agree with self-professed Nazis on what to do with the Jews two times out of three to understanding that he should only take their advice 50% of the time.

That's the kind of educational opportunities that have been lacking in the Oval Office since at least Franklin Roosevelt.

Just imagine what he'll know tomorrow.

stoli n coke: If you're "still learning" about racism at age 71 and don't have all the kinds of retardation, you have no excuse and are a lost cause.


Nonsense. You too should be learning more about racism. It comes in so many forms. It hides. Sometimes it blooms in unexpected places. Seemingly kind and generous people can be found to harbor hidden racist sentiments. Racism is unlike simple bigotry. Simple bigotry tends to reveal itself quickly but racism can be very subtle. Keep your eyes open and you can continue to learn about racism you entire life.

He's 71. You don't get to plead ignorance at 71. You've got experience. 71 years of experience. If in 71 years you don't know about something, then you at least ought to know to let someone else do the talking.

Plus, I think he must have gone through some intense backstage training while he was appearing for the WWE.  We're talking piledrivers and punt kicks and brainbusters learning how to do flying headbutts from Chris Benoit and entire factories worth of chair shots to the head.

There is certainly no wisdom with his age.  None at all.

And sometimes the 71 year old has a long documented history of racism. At 71 you aren't going to grow into something better. This is all he will ever be.

Yeah, I'll agree with this. It's hidden in our language, our toys, our skin and hair care products. It's in the color of our bandaids. 

But that sort of evolution requires self-awareness and a willingness to admit maybe you were wrong about something, instead of resorting to "I grew up in a different time" arguments that are meant to absolve you of any responsibility to change your behavior. 

I can't even type Trump's name in the same paragraph. He's that far removed from the ability for that sort of reflection and learning.

This is absolutely true... however he's not learning bout racism. He's  just learning to cover it up.

2017-10-02 08:29:36 AM  
Once again, why are people defending him? He's obviously not cut out to be president. Why ruin your rep to protect a loser?

Just don't get it.

Son of a klansman.  Sued for discriminatory business practices.  F*cking orange ball of hog sh*t is an unapologetic racist.

Shapes, colors, letters, numbers, racism - all good things to start learning at age 71. Unfortunately, Rome wasn't built in a day so while Trump has mastered shapes and colors like no one ever before him in history, he has stumbled with letters and is having some difficulty in grasping the material. Numbers and racism have regrettably been pushed to the backburner until he has mastered the alphabet.

We need to remember that people never stop learning and education is a lifelong quest. We would be wrong to criticize President Trump for the skills that he is lacking instead of lauding him for continuing to improve himself daily.

I live in West Michigan outside a city. If I see a brown person I either know them, they're lost, or they're picking something. People don't ask you if you go to (mega) church, they ask which one.

I recently "came out" to my neighbors as Buddhist to stop Sunday invites. The divorced deacon, who lives with the girlfriend he cheated on his wife with for two years, gives me dirty looks now whenever he sees me.

I think that the establishment GOP are hoping  to find a way to control the direction of the runaway train they are on, all the time oblivious to the fact that the train is only going to go one direction. They spent 20 years building a voter base that is powered by hate and fake outrage that seems to only want to elect the craziest of the crazy so the fake outrage machine stays well fueled. Look at the most recent elections, now Roy Moore, someone who shouldn't be allowed within 100 yards of a legislative body is about to be a senator. Sheriff Joe is thinking about a congressional run and it hasn't been completely laughed out of the hall yet.

I see two possible interpretations:

We've completely broken the way we govern and now I doubt we will be able to put it back together without making a bigger mess in the process.

We were broken for a long time but the efforts of good elected officials kept us from seeing it until we said "fark it" back in the 70s and 80s.

Politicians are generally a self-selecting group. You generally don't go into politics if you're worried about compromising ideals and getting in bed with whomever can give you power.

I found this in my church at a very young age. It's what put me off of organized religion.

Then an african-american family DARED move into a house around the corner from my street. Within less than a week a cross was burning on their front lawn. They moved out the following week. This was in the mid-1970's and the civil rights bestowed upon the USA was still considered evil, distasteful and wrong :(

2017-10-02 08:53:14 AM  
A nation's stomach turned as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) told America that the 71-year-old president is still learning about racism.

Explains why he seems to be more racist with each passing day.  Well, he has had some great tutors.

On Facebook last night I noted a shared post from a guy with an Anglo name Jim Bates and a White profile picture that said
"I live in Puerto Rico we are getting help from Army, Navy, FEMA and volunteer Ministries don't listen to CNN, they lie"
Trump supporters put more stock in a Facebook post from some random person than what they can see with their own eyes on TV.
