    I'd submit that the inability / unwillingness to filter what one says is a not necessarily a strength.


    Not so long ago, a lack of diplomacy would've been considered a liability for a public official.

    Re: President Trump

    Will, McCain, Romney, Kashich, and their kind are not conservatives, but they have helped drag the conservative movement so far to the left only a drastic character like Trump can offset the recent decades of damage.

    I would say that the PC movement over the last 20 or so years has magnified this issue.

    By diplomacy, do you mean letting the democrats run over you? Like when Harry Reid makes up a complete lie about Mitt Romney not paying his taxes?

    They affect you. Your decisions. How you treat someone. And that can affect the world outside your own mind.

    Thoughts become actions, and so on …

    Judging a person as being less than you (deplorables, libtards, etc) affects how you treat him or her differently from judging whether they win enough football games (or sell enough widgets, or make a persuasive case for a border wall, etc).

    You really dont see a distinction?

    I dont get why PC is such a devisive issue to conservatives. It doesnt cost anything to be polite.

    The first time I called Dwayne from Minden a redneck, he told me he preferred "hick". So now I call him a hick. It doesnt pick my pocket or break my leg to be PC towards DFM, so why wouldnt I?

    If there's more than one way to talk to a person, and they prefer one of them, why not just … call em that?

    Dont know about that one. But I think you know that diplomacy & decorum aren't equivalent to caving.

    Reagan had decorum.

    This does not fit you at all. I just don't see how anyone can have an effect on you by what they say or do. You and I sat beside each other at the Poinsettia Bowl and we had lunch together in LR and I've eaten some of your food before at your tailgate, so, I think I know you pretty well. Joe Biden said today that he wanted to take on Trump in a fight. Does that make you want to go out and fight somebody? Do you go around calling people racist like the democrats and CNN do because they're spouting that out every day? CNN employees said racist on the air 1100 times in the last two days.

    Re: President Trump

    It is racist to tell a person of color that they should go back where they came from, when they were born in the US, when you donít say the same thing to white people. Why canít you guys understand this? It suggests that Americans that have ethnic heritage from non-white origins somehow are less entitlement to America than people who came to America from predominantly white countries. America is not a white country. We arenít more entitled to be here than folks that have different ethnic heritage.

    What a mess the socialist liberal Dems. have become with all of their wet dream beliefs and lying to themselves and the country

    HOUSE SET TO CONDEMN

    FLOOR FIGHT ERUPTS
    PELOSI BANNED FROM SPEAKING

    House decides Nancy Pelosi's criticism of Trump violates chamber rules

    CNN, MSNBC say 'racist' 636 times...

    I don't know how old you are, but, I would say you're in the neighborhood of 40. Since you did not grow up in the 50's and 60's like I did, you have not seen any racist acts in your lifetime. Watch the new movie that's out called "Best Enemies" if you want to know what racism is about.

    Just because racism was worse in the past doesnít mean something less than that cannot still be racist.
