I wouldn't go so far as to add the left to their impression of fair and balanced.

The extreme militant ( progressive ) left will not even except moderate democrats into their twisted realm.

And there is no reason for progressives to even debate. You either believe 100% of what they say, no questions asked, or you are the enemy.

Your opinion, while you are entitled to it, is less than factual. I've never seen more 'I saw it on the internet therefore it must be true' reactions than recently from the left, unfortunately. There are some great minds out there who have let the coloration of discussions overtake their intelligence and common sense.

Anger and hatred will do that to people. There was some of the same stupidity (and I don't use that word lightly) when Obama was in office, but not to this degree. I'm not sure what people think to gain from it.

Sure you did. That is why you are so free and loose with everyone else's money.

I wish. I don't have a time clock as I am on call 24/7, 365. It is not unusual to get called in the middle of the night to address a problem half way around the world.

If that is the case, you probably paid for a lot more left leaning people than "Right wingers" as generally speaking, "Right wingers" usually pay their own way. I know in my kids case, they received ZERO from the government towards their college education. Again, because I work for a living.

Who is trying to get rid of news they don't like? Only the left try to shut down free speech. You can see that, right?

WTF? Please, dump the pointless and dishonest application of non-existent knee-jerk reactions that I am not having.

According to most on the left, I am cold, calculating and unfeeling. Some even doubt my gender because of it.

So, now that we've cleared the air on that, how about an actual response that doesn't attempt to be dishonest and deflective.

Are you saying that I like cold, calculating, unfeeling women?

This AOC is being picked apart by republicans, but they seem to leave that foul trump character alone. Now, it became know last month that trump has threatened to sue any school he ever attended if they let known his grade achievements. We also know that one of his professors called him the dumbest student he ever had, link below. I look up AOC and see that she graduated cum laude, which seems to be graduate with distinction. So chalk up one for the Chicana, you nitpickers. I was watching one clip where trump was at a tank factory in Ohio and of course he had to make fun of a picture of ex governor Dukakis in a tank. This ignorant joke of a president is too stupid to check up on stuff before he opens his filthy mouth. If he did, he would have found out that Dukakis volunteered for, and served in the Army for two years, unlike the draft dodging little punk that trump is. But of course his base doesn't care. As long as they think the economy is running good (It's just a continuation of Obama's economy actually), then they're satisfied.

I actually listen to NPR, almost every single day. How often do you listen to it?

I wont disagree that it leans slightly liberal, however, I haven't found a better or more neutral news organization that would be considered mainstream. There certainly aren't any neutral/slightly right news organizations. So where do you get your news from? Because from the things you are posting lately, it's obviously not from unbiased source that informs you of the facts.

I think we're just annoyed that someone obviously as intelligent as you are is falling in with the trump cultism and modern GOP. Not really sure what the rest of your rant is about. I'm pretty sure you are a great human being and a good person, have no idea what your gender is. I just wish you and millions more people who still support tRUmp would wake the **** up.
