A Bit of Wisdom from Churchill on Life's Battles

"War is a game that is played with a smile. If you can't smile, grin. If you can't grin, keep out of the way till you can." ~ Winston Churchill

      Hahaha
      Too funny.
      Remember when the swine flu hit us? 17000 deaths.
      1000 deaths before the president took any actions what so ever.
      Do you remember the people wailing and crying saying the president isn't doing anything? No one did.
      Now look at the dumbacrats, crying like a newborn after mommy pulled her nipple away. Pretty embarrassing little babies, sadly they're adults. These are the same sissies that cried when flights from region's all around where the Coronavirus broke out we're banned from entering the country. It seems dumbass dumbacraps just cry for no reason these days.
      You folks sure are an embarrassment these last three Great, Glorious Years. It's been a fabulous time, and you've done nothing but cry. No doubt the way you're acting, you probably have a diaper rash too. Hahaha poor babies.
      Well why you sit in your own fecus and cry your little eyes out, we Republicans can only hold back our laughter at you so as not to embarrass you any further. It's amazing how low the Democrats have gone....yet you'll be going even lower, tsk tsk tsk, better you then us. We're the ones who work for your food stamps and debit cards.

        Trump says he wants passengers to stay on cruise: "I don't need the numbers to double"
        To recap what just happened at this Trump CDC press conference on coronavirus:

        The president wore his re-election campaign hat and interrupted the event to ask a Fox News reporter if his town hall on the network had good ratings.
        He attacked CNN.
        He called the governor of Washington state, the epicenter of a major outbreak, a “snake” and “not a good governor”, and said he disagreed with his own vice president saying nice things about the governor while visiting the state.
        Trump said he has not considered canceling his rallies and is not worried about risks.
        He made false and exaggerated claims about the availability of coronavirus tests, ignoring the reality that his vice president has acknowledged, which is that there is a shortage among US healthcare providers right now.
        He said he would prefer if people on the Grand Princess cruise remained on the ship so that US numbers would not go up.
        He gloated about his “natural ability” to understand the epidemic.

          Of course the people need to stay aboard the ship, it's called quarantined.
          Are you really so ignorant and stupid that you think the people should get off the ship, possibly infect all the other people they come in contact, and those people who they come in contact with? I take it you're never look at or heard of another source of news besides CNN and then come here and tell everyone of your expertise on everything dear to your far reaching wisdom in life? Your probably that guy who double wipes between his butt cheeks when you drop a stink bomb to save on toilet paper

            We are talking about human beings here.
            And, as we all know, cruise ships are a great way to spread illnesses. It would be better to move these people to land, rather than vanquishing them to the sea.

            The virus is already here. The numbers will go up dramatically in the next week or two, just due to actually testing for the virus. If you don't test, the numbers continue to look low. And that's what they have been doing, keeping it looking artificially low.

              Anyone seemingly unaffected by this novel virus outbreak will remain absurdly apathetic until it they or someone they know is infected- only then does the reality of the illness come to life in fill view and cannot be denied.

        Well we had presidential presidents and then they do the unpresidental things all those corrupt close friends of their party wants. Now we have a President when pushed, will push back with vegeance, and I'm all for it when he says he wants those corrupt OUT!!!
        Obama deported more illegals than any president. He built those "cages" that you Dem whine about now. It was okay for Obama to use, but not Trump. Rather two faced of you isn't it? Know what your problem is? Your politicians manipulate you as easy as playdough. It doesn't mean your dumb, but face it, the media plays you like a violin, and you still can't see it.
        The Impeachment Gang probably will have Biden to run against Trump. Biden, the easiest one to manipulate.
        The Dems, Schumer, they wanted a better wall, just look on YouTube, it's there, he's talking about it, pleading for it, under a Dem president. NOW? Dead set against it.
        Well I want a president who says and means AMERICA FIRST
        AND WE HAVE HIM

          Dude, you're in a cult.

          Try critically looking at the information you are getting, rather than just doing a "what about" with Democrats. It's ok to admit you've been fooled.

          The man went bankrupt when he owned 3 casinos, how is that even possible?

          You're missing corruption right in front of your face, in favor of seeing "boogieman" corruption in the past. I hope you can get out from Trump's spell. The minute you stopped being able to look at trump with any kind of critical eye, you lost your ability for independent thinking. That's dangerous.

      The Clintons sure are a sleazy family. All of the above to
      under-aged sex slaves, conspiracy in murders, Benghazi,
      taking a hammer to her cell phone, Rapes committed by Bill
      with Hillary trying to cover up or intimidate the victim,
      Impeachment, lying under Oath, the Clinton Foundation getting
      tens of millions from Foreign Billionaires until the very second
      it became clear she lost the Presidency and not ONE CENT MORE after it became obvious
      and still you voted for her?
      wow, I mean WOW!!! Just Unbelievable

      1. Collected a $99,000 profit on "cattle futures trading" for a $1,000 "investment" with a Chicago "associate".
      2. As Sec. of State, presided over the international transfer of high-powered guns to Mexican drug cartels.
      3. As Sec. of State, presided over the smuggling of U.S. weapons and IFF codes to ISIS founders.

      Sure is one corrupt person you seem to love, protect, honor
      stand by. Pretty hard not to believe she nail so many of you.

The Trump sh*t.

              Trump supporters like their windows covered with Trump’s $hit, it helps them to stay inside the comfort bubble of uneducated apathy to the reality that is sliding down their fragile glass- the atrocious viscous insinuations.

                  Really? Ratcliffe is completely unqualified for the his new position.

                  McConnell and Lindsey walk down the streets with the KKK, flames in hand marching to the growl of racist trash.

                  Gates wore a gas mask and then pretended the joke was on him after being shamed for not picking up his legos from the floor.

                  Mulvaney is going to Ireland to protect Trump from the daily emolument clause violations. Mark Meadows takes up a greater position for being a loyal lap dog.

                  Jared and Ivanka have access to all areas with their security clearance having nothing but family hat put them there form proprietary information sleuthing,

                  Allllll of you will be desperate to backtrack your commenting in these next four years when Trump begins to truly devour the country in his cooking pot.......

                  We are F*cked......completely and utterly screwed. And as a Republican with moral values and no shame With my Wealth; there is a deep and honest need for the country to flip on any authoritarianism.

                  You pieces of $hit have no foresight in the facts that history is repeating itself and it is up to the citizens to not only choose a new leader but rid this country of the filth that is eating the USA like Trump with a bowl of meatloaf and ice cream.

                  We are F*cked, and the poor Trump supporters gain nothing from his dynasty. We need an honest President not a lying sack of sewage.
