Saw this morning a former PM of Denmark is butthurt about being called out for underfunded defense spending per NATO.

Seems the joke is Denmark / China more than Trump.

What does the left gain out of grifting money to the Gaylord family? If they had been on the conservative side I'd have considered them the worst RINOs imaginable in terms of moving the ball in more than a temporary manner. Once you get past being black, which the left is incapable of doing but for arguments sake, they have to consider him a miserable failure in what was accomplished and trashing the future of his party.

--“It’s not just the unthinkable notion of buying and selling territory as if we’re talking about a building or golf course,”--

"You should just grab it, like we did."
Laughable.
An Imperialist European country steals a piece of North America from its Inuit occupants who migrated there from Canada and Alaska and doesn't actually gain control of it until the early 1800s and doesn't make it anything more than a backwater colony until 1953 and now they're getting uppity.

As I said before, let's not buy it. Let's acquire it in the way Denmark did. The only difference will be we don't force the Greenlanders to live in poverty, sacrificed on the altar of environazis.

That story on Elliott Broidy makes me sick. It's way past time to expose the unfree press in Qatar's pocket.

rse

More proof that there is a convergence going on even if we are no on board.

Economics is a science of individualism. True conservatives have a soft spot in their hearts for organic collectivity. It is small wonder that there is no truly conservative economic doctrine. True conservatives think people spend too much time thinking and acting “economically” in the United States, which has always encouraged individualism, ambition, and mobility at the expense of stability and community. Thus real conservatism has been a marginal and primarily cultural school of criticism.

Having hollowed out their political philosophy to make room for an economic doctrine—a doctrine that recommends capitalism for its unsleeping dynamism—contemporary American conservatives are in a singularly weak position to preform the traditional conservative function of judging and editing the social transformation that comes with the dissolution of old forms and modes of action. Traditional conservatism has not been, and proper conservatism cannot be, merely a defense of industrialism and individualistic “free market” economics.

"I listen carefully in church and swear they are not teaching the values taught when I was growing up or that my wife and I taught all those years teaching Sunday School, or what I believe from all the books I read about what preachers preached since the time of Martin Luther at least" As usual I'n way behind but wanted to comment on this discussion. I would encourage anyone who is not happy with their current religion to talk to a Missour Synod Lutheran paster. We are true to the preachings of scripture and Martin Luther.
