    Default State Of The Union 2019

    I thought this was a great SotU speech on the heritage and vision of freedom and greatness for the nation. Nice job honoring the WW2 vets and Holocaust survivors as well as the police officer that stopped the synagogue shooting. Good honoring the 10 year old girl. Good for standing up to infanticide. Good for rebuilding the military and pointing out the threat from Russia and China.

    On the other hand, the rest of the actual policy discussed...

    Nationwide paid family leave? Thanks Ivankna. Wonder where that money is coming from...

    The $1.5 trillion in "infrastructure" spending? What's another $1.5 trillion when you're already $21 trillion in the hole? After all, we can't be out of money, the printing presses are still running!

    Great nations don't fight endless wars but they also don't retreat from them. If we stop playing World Police, we all know which two countries will step into those power vacuums.

    I liked the slams against Socialism. I just wish it would stop being given to us inch by inch. Is that really too much to ask?

    MAXINE MELTDOWN! Waters begs Americans to ‘turn the television off’ during Trump SOTU

    February 5, 2019
    By Kyle Olson



    Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear what Donald Trump has to say tonight.

    The California congresswoman melted down when asked if she would be listening to Trump’s second State of the Union address this evening.
    #AClassyClapback served the way only Auntie Maxine can- straight, no chaser. Read why @RepMaxineWaters still isn't here for Trump’s #SOTU address: https://t.co/xkrXYm2CGU #ESSENCENews pic.twitter.com/jj1ESXrMsf

    “I don’t even know why he wants to come and give the State of the Union,” Waters huffed to Essence magazine.

    “The state of the union under him has not been good,” she claimed, dismissing record low unemployment rates for black Americans and strong economic activity.

    “And he has been divisive, and I think he’s putting us all in harm’s way. And so he is not worthy of being listened to,” Waters sneered.

    “I don’t know why anybody would want to pay attention to anything that he has to say. He lies over and over again, like I said. 6,000 lies have been documented since he’s been there. I just can’t imagine what he’s going to try and say!” she said.

    “But since he is a great liar, he’ll say anything,” and triggered Waters said, “uh, because he’s capable of saying anything without facts, without research. And so, I’m not looking forward to his State of the Union, and I hope people will turn the television off!”

    Waters isn’t the only one triggered by Trump.

    Last year, Luis Gutierrez, the illegal alien-loving congressman from Illinois, fled the House chamber.

    Trump praised the Capitol building, calling it a monument to the American people.

    As applause broke out, so did chants of “USA! USA! USA!”

    Gutierrez left his seat as several Democrats patted him on the arm as he retreated to a safe space.
    Watch:
    We have a bipartisan standing ovation — and a lot of "USA!" chants. https://t.co/00Kmhu7ges

    Peggy Noonan, a former speech writer for President Reagan and no fan of President Trump, praised his speech tonight, saying, “This has been a deeply adept speech in terms of policy. He cut to the muscle on legal and illegal immigration, on abortion and infanticide, on foreign wars. His vow on socialism will be remembered. Great heroes in the balcony, a real American panoply. 1…And good natured with the white jackets, who I see some on twitter are calling the straight jackets. AOC had a rare bad night, looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss. 2.”

    I know I'm late to the thread.

    I can't listen to politicians. Its all a bunch of self serving drivel.

    I just listen to the highlight reels.
    "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
