OK, I civilly and strongly disagree with your comment pertaining to President Trump. He is the best thing that has happened to this country for a long, long time. And, speaking of civility, I am personally offended by you saying I'm as "dumb as a stump". I am an American.

But no. We can't afford to be civil anymore. 50 years of being civil, of being good boys and girls, got us this ****show we now enjoy, where our schools are Communist / Socialist and have indoctrinated at least two, maybe three whole generations.

Remember how obnoxious the long-hairs were while I was but a baby and our boys were in the jungles of Vietnam dying for nothing? Remember the protestors?

That's who we need to become. Obnoxious, loud, in their faces, yelling at 2 am in front of their houses. Placards. Protests. Road-blockings.

We have become the counterculture. And if we don't protect the American Way of Life starting now, in VA, then we'll forever lose this country. It'll become yet another has-been like England and Spain and France.

The costs are UNREAL in the present system. That's why it needs to be replaced by private education! The people who home school their children do not find the cost to be too great.

AMEN! The only people I see fighting POTUS are the very people who screwed up everything that he has greatly improved in only 3 years!

No, his malarkey after the Texas church head-shot is that only police should be armed.

And his own security team, of course.

I know I'm sick of Bloombergs commercials on tv. Tom Steger too. Tell me they aren't trying to buy the nomination.

I do not know of any commi krat voter who is willing to support NY'er Bloomdick. He's just propaganda.

Try again. FYI....My neighbors son goes to Hillsdale. It's $25k/yr. No less expensive than any other colleges around me.

At what annual price point do you think K-12 private education becomes affordable for EVERYONE???? Even at $500 per student per year.....you'll have a SIGNIFICANT portion of the population who couldn't afford to pay for their kids education.

My kids have been in private school since K with 2 years to go. I'm well aware of the true costs of private education. It depends tremendously upon private donations far greater than the actual tuition fees.
As am I... but there are many different option in pvt school. Joe six pack is already paying for it. Whether by his property taxes or rent covering the landlord's taxes. If you simply took the current tax implication per property and allowed the taxpayer to divert it to the school of their choice, most of the problem is solved. The rest can be supplemented for less than the current waste factor in public education.

The best we can do? No, but who on earth would want the job? The good Lord put Trump there at this time because we needed someone who would fight to the death with the establishment, regardless of the low percentage wins. All of this will add up to to a long term win for America.

If you really can't see any of the good Trump has done, with no support mind you, than you are either not paying attention, or trolling the board.

You may not want to play golf or hang out with Trump but there is an entire generation of people with a 401K that may actually allow a retirement now. Things were grim with the last administration... and a ton of people that are reaping tax cut benefits and if that's not good enough, how about unemployment so low that wages are rising to fill the spots?

If you honestly think bloomer will do much or any of that, I'd like to sell you some of my oceanfront acreage, it's prime!

So is Trump support a pre-requisite for posting on this forum?

Moderators, feel free to jump in here.

If you allow ONLY pro-Trump comments on this forum, please tell me now.

So it's kinda like this, if you want to post anti-Trump comments, you best be able to back them up. Trolling is not allowed.

Boomberg even has ads on youtube now.

You can clearly see that he has a top of the line public relations firm on his payroll. They try to make him out as some kind of superman crossed with Jesus Christ.

Your question is a far cry from your earlier comment of calling him a "POS." Lots of people here don't like Trump, the man, but do support the conservative agenda. You can despise a man and not call him foul names.

I do think it's funny that you come on to a gun forum of all places and get offended that people call you out on trashing a conservative President at a time when all the dem challengers are screaming gun control or confiscation. For someone who goes by "DarkLord" you take yourself much too seriously. ...lol

I have been on this forum for YEARS... If I were a troll, you would know it by now.

And my "anti-trump" comment was in the midst of an anit-democrat comment... Yet I"M the one who is catching hell?

There's a BIG piece of the Republican party who is not crazy about Trump.

This forum doesn't exactly welcome people on the left or center. Now we don't welcome people on the right UNLESS THEY SUPPORT TRUMP???

Is this REALLY the policy McVay?

Sorry, but I have yet to see a politician who wasn't a POS. NONE of them can really be trusted...ESPECIALLY where the 2nd Amendment is concerned. The best of them are a necessary evil when they are at their best. That USED to be a conservative value, but I guess times have changed.

Doesn't mean I don't support the 2nd Amendment.

I said Trolling is not allowed. Never has been, never will be. Put words in my mouth again and that will be considered trolling. Choose wisely.

The only time I have seen polls of supposedly conservative voters only where Donald J Trump did badly....

were polls that were done by his political opponents.

Not even close. My property taxes are $13k per year. That doesn't even pay for 1 year of only one of my kids private school.

How does diverting property tax receipts from one school to another "solve the problem"???

All you did was move dollars. You didn't solve anything.
