    Show a piece of environmental legislation emanating from Republicans and get back to me.

    What ever happened to Trumpcare anyway?

    The left cares about the environment, healthcare, education, civil rights

    Exactly!

    That's why the "crap app" comes in so handy in SanFrancisco.
    They want to educate you about the horrendous state of their environment so you don't
    contract hepatitis and cholera, because that would violate your civil rights.

    i don't believe it would make a difference if i tried.

    i simply don't believe the way to deal with an extreme is to be extreme back at it. that tends to justify their behavior because you are in fact giving them what they are after in the end, attention.

    if you look around today, the culture *is* shifting. chappelle made a comedy mocking the SJW's and nailed it. in many ways he broke the ice and more will follow. their constant and extreme stupidity called called out for what it is. stupid. anything else validates it.

    i will fully agree the "extreme left" have gone off the reservation, so to speak. what i don't agree with is giving them the time of day to tell them how wrong they are cause right or wrong isn't their goal. look at me and validate my emotions, is. if "the left" were destroying our way of life it would have happened around 1800 and only 24 years or so of trying to get along. but we didn't. for 250 years we found ways through our differences. yes we can find extreme social times in our history. last like this would be late 60's, very early 70s. we got through it. culture shifted.

    and now it would seem we're doing it again. shifting back away from the extreme.

    i simply don't agree thumping the bible to people who don't give a shit about it is going to get you what you're after in the end. but hey, if that's your path, walk on.

    Explain to people that ever worsening hurricanes, wildfires and droughts are just a figment of their imagination

    None of those things happened, ever, before we used fossil fuels, eh?

    So rolling back efforts to have clean air and water is a way of getting clean air and water? That's one hell of a way of "getting there"....

    "i simply don't believe the way to deal with an extreme is to be extreme back at it."

    There is no 'extreme' on the Right.

    Think about it, and you will not be able to come up with positions on the Right that differ from American traditions, history or values.


    Far Left:
    No prayer in schools, gay marriage, multiple genders, no borders, no sovereignty, no free speech, special rights for particular groups (affirmative action), under Franklin Roosevelt the federal government was transformed from one of limited & enumerated powers only to the Frankensteinian monster it is today.


    These are all radical positions that don't represent the center, American traditions, values, and history ....that's what identifies "FAR" or 'extreme.'


    You cannot name any 'extreme' from the center positions on the Right.



    Oh....and quoting the Bible is simply homage to our Founders, who did the same.
