No. By applauding or sitting on hands during SOTU, whichever the case may be, Ds taught us the following:

They are in favor of socialism. Let that sink in. Socialism.

They are in favor of infanticide. For real.

They are in favor of open borders, rape and drugs.

They are against Americans of all colors, races, and genders being employed at record levels.

Sorry. Sane people simply cannot compromise with such bullshit. For Rs to give Ds ANYTHING ELSE, in addition to what they’ve already given over last half century, would be to kill America in favor of Amerika. There is no compromising with such radicalism.

Not clapping = socialism. Mmmkay.

otto Olean, NY
02/08/19 2:39 pm

SOTU typically plays out that POTUS makes remarks and congress tends to show their agreement by whether they clap or not and with the amount of enthusiasm the do so. A raucous, jump-up-and-down standing ovation would signify very extraordinary agreement. A normal standing ovation, strong agreement. Mere clapping would mean they sort of agree or at least want to look respectful. Not clapping at all and sitting with a scowl on their faces is quite indicative of strong disagreement. When that reaction is triggered by a vow to never become a socialist nation, it is reasonable to assume they are in favor of becoming a socialist nation.

So, yes, not clapping = socialist, in that instance.

If Trump had come out and touted post-birth abortion and they had that reaction, that would be a good thing. That would mean “no clapping = pro-children”.

In regards to lower tuition , I have been calling for the following for years. A program at the university where the college student works for the university, perhaps in kitchen, janitorial, student union, teacher aid, secretary etc and instead of getting paid they get massively reduced tuition. I think this is a fair and very reasonable plan that would be very easy to implement. And thus lower tuition for the student.

Yes, the right is full of perfect angels.

When, instead, the Governor removed the traitor flag from our State House people rallied and many many times and there were many instances of hate that never made it to the news cause that’s how SC rolls. But yeah, right wingers were angels under Obama right? He was a lone wolf right? That’s why his extended family has since been arrested for inciting racist violence right?

But yeah, Conservatives are only “lone wolf” intolerant, am I right? How many of these things personally happened to you that you named? Or are you just going off of rhetoric?

3 of your 4 points are just plain false. On the fourth, charter schools as a whole aren’t something I personally support, you cherrypick and say that because Liberals don’t like Charter schools you decided I PERSONALLY would sympathize with the lack of support for black charter schools. You’re wrong. My black children received wonderful public educations. That isn’t the problem in schools. I don’t know any black people that have gotten an abortion, I know a lot of white people. I realize that’s anecdotal, but, again, you were pandering. I know NO ONE who has ever received an abortion through PP. I have friends who would volunteer as ushers for women seeking healthcare because dumb fucks believed PP meant abortion. FYI, it doesn’t, young women and poor women also need Pap smears, bc, mammograms, and other female healthcare. Oh, and black vets vs immigrants? I don’t have tunnel vision. One doesn’t discount the other.

Just because something does it affect you personally does it mean it is not happening.
Open your mind to the policies you support.
Glad your kids got a good public education but the left is against charters that improve opportunity for other black children that desperate need it.
Glad you don’t know anyone that has had an abortion but that doesn’t mean PP has not aborted a generation of black children, their clinics are overwhelmingly located in black neighborhoods - just like the founder intended.
Dems are now pushing abortion even after delivery - that’s infanticide.
Black vets vs illegal immigrants - you don’t think one has a priority over the other and that’s the problem and the Dem position - illegal alien = citizen veteran = no difference.

I don’t support charter schools, sorry. That money could be used to fix the schools the kids attend. Not build a school that teaches whatever it wants whether it’s fact or not. That’s not going to change. The talking point about PP being used to abort a generation of black babies is so old, do you not get tired of spewing poorly researched crap?

The money for charter schools is helping kids not going to bureaucracy and union salaries - you are a union supporter over kids - that’s fine but stop cloaking it in concern kids. They don’t teach whatever they want - facts or not facts - that’s CNN, NYT and Wash Post job.
Explain to me where I am wrong about PP instead of just dismissing it.
Do they get millions from the government?
Do they kick back millions to lefty politicians?
Do they perform 350,000 abortions last year?
Are the majority of clinics in minority neighborhoods?
Was the founder a racist?
Is aborting a generation of black babies consistent with her idealism?
Do they count handing out a three pamphlets and giving directions to a place that does mammograms (unlike PP) as 4 services equal to the same as an abortion therefore they cam claim their “services” outnumber abortions?
Is this consistent with lefty bait and switch and verbal gymnastics?
