Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

Oh - in fairness, I need to mention one more positive for the Trump presidency: The business community seems to be responding well to his pro-business policies (perhaps first and foremost the corporate tax cut). The markets are rising at record rates, unemployment is minimal, wages are (finally) be...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

Other countries are beginning to talk about America the same way they used to talk about Putin's Russia. That's not a good thing. This affects our standing in the world. It's not "winning". There is a difference between liking and respecting. They liked President Obama but I saw little re...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

I'm sure someone will say that all politicians lie. But in the United States, no president in my lifetime has lied so blatantly and so routinely, shouting people down when confronted instead of addressing the facts. And no president has worked so hard to stoke hostility toward the media, calling th...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

Yes, how unpolitician of him to be up front and frank with his constituents. And that's why you like him, right? He's not a "career politician". As I have said several times, I do not like his personality. So I do not "like" him. I do like many of he policies his administration ...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

It just feels so blatantly "out there"... very little behind-closed-doors dirty laundry. Yes, how unpolitician of him to be up front and frank with his constituents. How dare he follow through with what he said he was going to do? How could he act just like he did on the Apprentice, of wh...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

None were perfect in terms of personal integrity I'm sure, but there is a vast spread between the likes of principled people like George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter on the one end, and less honorable leaders like Richard Nixon and Donald Trump on the other. I think a potty mouth is a wide spread from ...

Re: President Trump: A MennoNet Poll

Oh friend, don't read anything into my lack of use of the title "President" - I was't trying to send a message, but was mainly trying to save length in the development of the poll by omitting the repeated use of that nine letter word. I can easily understand this. When President Obama was...

Re: I think it is funny

Yes, "I" think this is very funny. https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/26804471_1819954118062938_6774717665064834278_n.jpg?oh=b38f2a2e643524afed59e034aa855a2b&oe=5AF84DF3 https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/26231750_1741275912577304_7918678755400640928_n.jpg?oh=0827...
