    Really! This is such garbage and from the Leader of the United States of America. I am sure it is a place where it would be claimed that bigotry is sent to the naughty corner, yes? Trump whingers like a stuck pig when Schiff parodies the phone call with Zelensky, yet this dirty crap is ok.

    Come on Team USA, when will you stop embarrassing your Country with this fool?

    Ah, so you disagree? The Left is not supportive of anti-capitalist Islamic Theocracy? Hell. It’s worse than that—they bear some of the intellectual responsibility for the Iranian Hostage Crisis—especially the Carter.

    You are wrong. The Democratic party is not supportive of anti-capitalist Islamic Theocracy. It is strongly supportive of free-market capitalism and generally supportive of Christianity with a separation of church and state. It is also supportive of public support for certain services like health care, but the Democratic party is nearly as far from being "socialist" as the Republican party is.

    I believe the idea is that they're Iranians.

    Someone better tell Warren, Sanders, Omar, and AOC.

    With regards to the Republicans, you are right, the Right is just as collectivist and statist as the Democrats, and just as anti-reason, anti-reality, anti-individualism, and anti-capitalist as the Left—The Right in the name of God, the Left in the name of the State. We agree. Or do we?

    The reason why he tweets this crap is strictly because it upsets you.

    Yes, and because he enjoys throwing red meat at his rapid base, who hates their fellow Democrat citizens even more than they hate Muslims.

    ...and it's effective. It's political speech and the image is 1,000 words worth. Hyperbole, perhaps, but it gets people to reason through the issue by internally articulating arguments for or against. It causes people to think and talk through the issue. Effective.

    Cheers

    Oh please. The picture is clearly fake, clearly humorous, and clearly poking Pelosi and Schiff for being more supportive of Iran than the US in this.

    But some folks will get outraged over anything, some folks have no sense of humor, and some folks are so ignorant of current events that the point about the left sliding with Iran over the US may be a nuance they're completely unaware of.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Right. Unless it might hurt Trump. The left has been pushing the false prediction that the bottom is going to fall out of the economy because of Trump for three years now. Every leftist has been proclaiming and promising that a recession is on the brink of happening. Just now are they admitting that things look good for the next year. Bill Maher was hoping for a recession. It's their daydreams exposed.

    It's hard to worry about what some anonymous far leftist in Australia thinks about America.

    Another situation where mismanagement raises it's ugly head and is used as an argument for something that actually isn't the cause. "Never let a good crisis go to waste." (Rahm Emanuel)
    Factcheck: how park ranger numbers stack up amid debate over bushfire readiness
    "Some of the loudest accusations of mismanagement have come from within parties in government. The deputy premier, John Barilaro, claimed the fires showed a policy of what he called “locking up” national parks that had not worked. He said it was the legacy of former Labor premier Bob Carr, influenced by conservationists’ ideological opposition to hazard-reduction burning, but did not explain how this influence had been exerted.


    Those criticisms were echoed by another leader National party figure, the former deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce, who claimed the policies of the Greens – a minor party not in government – had stopped proper fire preparation.


    Meanwhile, a leading union said the number of national park rangers has been cut by a third over eight years."

    You mean like Trump buying votes with tax cuts (err, tax deferments to the future) on the national credit card? Trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. Where is the Tea Party?

    Not for a long time. The NDP want something very similar to the autocracy of China, as a transitional step towards their true intent of simple dictatorship...

    Much like CA where their green party has all but eliminated forrest management practices. Green folk seem to be unable to understand the danger to their environment they create...
