    Both. "When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best," Trump said. "They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." I'm pro liberty and I see a lot of problems with Trump in this regard. You are not pro liberty. You are anti Trump. Trump's statements following the Charlottesville incident were one of the few times he's gotten it right yet even then you complain.

    I can barely remember any instances of Trump talking about race. Especially compared to his predecessor, it's not even close.

    I agree to a point, however the economy is going to crash no matter who's in charge. That's the downside of 15-20 trillion in government stimulus that "rescued" us from the last crisis. The Fed can delay the crash with more QE and lower rates but ultimately that'll just speed up the crash in the dollar. But is sure is curious that they suddenly started raising rates as soon as Trump got elected.

    My guess is the overdue economic collapse hits before then and the Democrats sweep in 2018. That's why I was rooting for Hillary.

    This is slightly off topic but my guess is we've reached a point where the left badly want to keep Trump in office because they think he's so unpopular that it will propel them into victory in 2018 and 2020. The left and the media will be mean as hell but you won't hear any extended talk of impeachment. I'm guessing they want to avoid running against Pence.

    No it's not. I don't like Trump but he doesn't appear to be a racist.

    I'll make Angela Rye a deal. We take down her symbols of historical slavery but at the same type we eliminate forms of actual current slavery. For example the income tax and discrimination laws.

    The good news is that we won't be able to print and borrow to give the illusion of prosperity. The only way to improve things will be free market capitalism. I'm not saying we'll choose liberty, but at least the consequences of the choice will be easy to see. Choose liberty and you get a much higher standard of living. Choose socialism and it gets much lower. Right now we're choosing socialism but we're not seeing the results yet because we're able to mask them with printing and borrowing.

    I've said many times I don't think much is going to change until we run out of free stuff. More specifically when the dollar crashes and our standard of living crashes with it. At that point we'll either turn hard towards liberty or towards totalitarianism.

    His purpose is to support the Democratic Party. The only question is does he get paid. I put him on my ignore list I agree, as long as the protests are peaceful and not threatening. But since those Seattle protests were in response to the Charlottesville protests, and one of the signs said "Tear it Down", they give the impression they want the government to forcefully remove it. At least to me. I'd prefer they protest the Lincoln Memorial!

    I disagree that it looks like he did it on purpose. I'd say it's 50-50. From what I've seen he approached the mob too fast, that pissed them off and they started attacking, then he accelerated. The question is, did he accelerate in self defense or to kill?

    I don't know. It seems to me that most of the recent cases that started out with extreme left wing media bias ended up being rectified in court. For example the Jena 6, Duke Lacrosse, George Zimmerman, Ferguson. In all those cases the media were totaled biased on the left, they had already decided the parties were guilty, but the courts found them innocent. But this time could be different. There's nobody on the driver's side. I can't remember ever seeing so much invested on a guilty verdict.

    I'm thinking it should be pretty easy to tell if it's rigged. For one thing the guy with the flag pole that struck the car needs to be charged, or at least be a witness for the defense.

    I'm curious to see how this plays out. It's pretty clear from the video evidence that the driver was struck by protestor(s) before he accelerated into the crowd. It could easily be considered self defense. Almost everyone has him already convicted. Even Trump is calling him a murderer (should the president be doing that?). The guy who would've been the defense attorney for the driver was disallowed by the judge saying it was a conflict of interest. The defense attorney was against the statues being removed, that's what the judge said was a conflict of interest. That sounds more like a similarity of interest. I would think a conflict of interest would be someone like a member of antifa, not someone who might be on the defendant's side. And to top it all off the judge assigned a former prosecutor, Denise Lunsford, who has somewhat of a checkered past, to represent the driver. The next court date is not until Aug 25 so it's going to be awhile before we get any more data on the actual case.

    True. But it's not analogous to taking down statues on public property.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall at the police station where they're holding the driver. I can imagine one cop whispering to another cop, "he might be innocent, what are we going to do? Can I get a transfer?"

    I wonder what the media's reaction would've been if it was a black guy driving the car and if the mob was the KKK.

    Yup. They probably wish they could just move directly to a conviction and focus solely on Trump, but I think at some point it'll be impossible to ignore the actual case.

    I'm waiting for the first whiff of coverage in the media that he might actually be innocent. It's amazing how they're not even touching it. He's already been convicted. Even Trump convicted him which I'm not sure if that's kosher to have the president declare someone's guilt before the trial.

    It's hard to tell what he was thinking. I'm sticking with my latest theory that he came in too fast, pissed off the mob, they started beating his car, he hit the gas. Hopefully when we get closer to the trial the media will switch from trying to blame it all on Trump to actually analyzing the case. For all you conspiracy guys I heard on CNN that the judge denied the driver the public defender and hand picked some other defense attorney. He said the public defender was at the protest. So the next question is will he get a fair trial? Maybe it's still too early but doesn't the defense attorney usually make a public statement defending his client at some point?

    He might claim it but from that video it didn't seem the likely reason. At that point where he was still about 100 feet away from the flag guy if he was scared it wouldn't make sense to speed up to a spot where there's way more menacing people. At that point he could've backed up if he was worried. I've done that before. I've taken a wrong turn and wound up on a street that had a crowd up ahead with not so nice people and quickly backed out of there. The last thing you'd do is speed up to the edge of the crowd.

    That's the one I saw also. I think the fact that he was going too fast explains why there were so many "bat ready" guys that attacked when he crashed. A lot of people were looking up like WTF? I think that's what prompted the initial flag attack also.

    Yup. Either panicked or got pissed off. But not even close to a premeditated terrorist attack.
