AMUSING!

A sign at one of the anti-Trump (aka anti-American) protests in NZL yesterday ... 'Dump the Trump, Dump the TPPA'.

Strange bedfellows.  Guess they hadn't heard.

Would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

Vet - Politics makes for strange, usually uncompatable, bedfellows.

eg Trump and Jane Kelsy on the samesides of the TPPA.

pdm...for vastly different reasons...... Interesting sideline on Trumps verbals. The French translators are having difficulty in translating in real time. It is because Trump’s vocabulary is limited, his syntax is broken; he repeats the same phrases over and over and French is a structured language they don't know where to place the emphasis or the meaning of sentences.

I'm afraid Troll Adolph has overstepped the mark by referring to my granddaughter as a "brainless bitch", if I ever find out who you are son..............

Just about Trumped out and losing the will to live. We can only wait and see, perhaps the bluster may turn into common sense but I am not holding my breath.

The Editorial from the non partisan Observer newspaper pretty much sums up we we are at.... https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jan/22/observer-view-donald-trump-inauguration

You will have to change your name to Lord Headbut. With at least 4 more years of Trump your will to live might evaporate before you can defend Snowflake's honor.

Re: 'brainless bitches': you are either expressing a sincerely held opinion, in which case you are clearly deranged, or this is an attempt at humour - further proof that you are to witty commentary as a cricket bat is to an egg sandwich.

You could learn a lot from The Veteran about the importance of levity, restraint, and respect in framing your opinion. Or you could continue spouting brainless epithets and scare more readers off the blog.

You poor thing.

They are brainless, have no doubt, or they wouldn't be doing what they are doing..

And to judge their collective characters, have a look at some of their posters. The haters and wreckers of the left. They are very nasty bits of work and female. In short, brainless bitches.

Adolt. I'm guessing your wife wouldn't be allowed to stand up for women's issues?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Guess away, fool.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

After consideration, I have decided to withdraw and apologise.

The term 'brainless bitches is an affront to all those of limited intelligence.

Therefore I will withdraw the word 'brainless' and substitute the more acceptable word 'stupid.'

What are you gonna do, tough guy? Your grand daughter is a brainless bitch. Just like you. Virtue signalling nonces.

The only time Adolf's wife is permitted to stand is when she pees.

Earl......I suspect his wife is like his house, a figment of our imagination. His raison d'etre is to deceive and destroy any meaningful debate through bile and misinformation. It is of little wonder that people react in disgust at some of the trolls this site attracts. He is incapable of debating a point but, along with his fellow trolls, is rather good at shutting it down through abuse.

Veteran ...is it not time to start an alternative No minister with a higher standard of contribution as this blog has reached the end of the runway with little lift..

"Non-partisan" Observer? It's the Sunday stablemate of the Guardian. Whatever it is, it is decidedly *not* nonpartisan.

Overall it might well be the best news "paper" in the world right now - and the UK seems happier to have tories in left papers and vice versa - but the Guardian and Observer would never even claim to be non-partisan.

How ironic as his past comments have shown he considers everyone who challenges him a "leftie" troll.
You're right he does interfere with a good debate.

What the hell is wrong with you people?

The Veteran said...

Kudos to the Realist. I know the mention of Trump elevates the bp in some/many but surely we are better than a rabble.

Anonymous said...

Taking fence sitting to the extreme veteran.... who is we? who is they? Ambivalent comments do nothing for the process of informed debate. Take a stand.

David said...

You are correct Vet. Those of us from the caring, humanist left are far better than the deplorables who elected Trump and the rabble who support him.

Judge him by his actions, you asked. So how do you judge him now he has denied health care to millions of the rubes who voted for him?

Obamacare hasn't disappeared just yet

In a couple of months we should have a good indication which road the will be taking.

You need to wake yourself up. Trump will be giving back healthcare to the millions from whom it was taken by Obama's unaffordable Healthscare whose annual costs in many cases exceed ten percent of gross household income.

The millions of 'rubes' to whom you refer are the twenty million or so young people who were forced to buy health insurance, including cover for Altzheimers, they neither wanted not needed and the elderly who were forced to pay huge premiums for obstetrics care.

Did you not pause to wonder by Obamacare was THE major election issue?

Go figure.

The Veteran said...

Egbut ... the 'we' is the royal we. All those who contribute, in one way or tother, to this blog. The 'they' are those who believe Trump walks on water or alternatively is the devil incarnate with no redeeming features at all.

If I wish to I can probably do insults along with the best of them. Probably adds little to informed debate. Not sitting on the fence ... although we sit on opposite sides of the fence I think the rules set out in Chris Trotter's 'Bowalley Road' blog have much to commend although banning should only be a last resort.

Anonymous said...

Not talking about banning Veteran just replying to them as though they actually exist as real New Zealanders with valid opinions. Scott being the prime example of a hijacked ID and fake Facebook accounts. These people actually contribute nothing except abuse when arguments are rebutted. Troll Ghost seems to be a particularly nasty piece of work
