This is quite the list of accomplishments while enduring constant investigations, impeachment’s and media attacks. Thought some of you may be interested in reading this.

Well, there's the problem: you think we're trashing the "highest most respected office in our country" when we're not. We're trashing the person who holds the office, because he's trashing the office itself.

And your original post is all fake news.

I am not a fan of any politician, in my mind they all serve themselves and not the public. It's strange to see people claiming Trump wants to divide the country but anyone who doesn't like him takes the same stance. Trump supporters versus us.

Financially life has been good the past 4 years. The local housing market has boomed and my family has lived well. If I have to deal with a clown on Twitter in the meantime why do I care.

I am interested to see where our tax rates go from here and how many of our civil liberties are infringed upon with this new administration.

And who can forget these Trump classics-

Hundreds of thousands of Americans killed on American soil because of Trump's complete and utter lack of leadership..

Impeached twice.

Inheriting the longest jobs growth and economic growth streaks in American history, and driving both in the fucking ditch during his presidency..

Leading and inciting a violent coup of our government.

Kidnapping immigrant children from their parents..

I would just really appreciate it if we could have 1 thread that doesn’t trash the highest most respected office in our country. This thread is for patriots who respect the office of the President regardless of who sits there.
The thread started with a list of things about a person, not an office. Take some time to contemplate the difference.

Thinking that anyone who criticizes the occupier is unpatriotic is not patriotic. There's plenty of good reasons that Freedom of Speech is in the First Amendment.

The heat in this forum does get hot. Be prepared.

Misinformation and partial truths and flatout alternate facts. Makes it sound as if Trump took an economy in ruins and turned it around into the best of all time. Not in line with facts or reality. Said trump built 400 miles of wall, doesnt say he promised a wall across the border that Mexico would pay for that didnt happen. Just 1 fact to point out from a quick scan of this list. This was put out by the WH. So consider the source.

“This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same.
I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.
You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind.
We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans.
Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.
People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it.
People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcomed.
$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"!
Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it is racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.
We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.
Wake up America. The great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.”

I don’t know the author but this pretty much sums everything up for me.

Doing the copy/paste is sure a dodgie way of carrying on a conversation. All of us seem to have read other sources.

You asked for a thread to talk about the soon..not soon enough...former occupier of the WhiteHouse is gone. You've claimed to want to talk about the office of the President but none of what you've shared is framed in what the office is about.

You've ben asked by others to define and expand YOUR ideas...use original thought not copy/paste

Pick one item in your latest post and tell us how it's actually manifested itself in your real life.

Well....???

Well we are about to have 10-12 million immigrants become citizens. Why? That's 10-12 million votes for democrats. Don't think it's because they want to help people. Staying in office keeps politicians in power and money. They will be the ruling class and we will be paying for it. Ask someone who immigrated to this country how they feel about people being granted amnesty without going through any of what they did.

Socialism has never worked anywhere but people seem to think it will be different for us and will vote for it short sightedly.

Trump was a piece of garbage sure, but he said what he meant and wasn't a politician positioning themselves to power and money through lies at the general publics expense. Let's jump right back into trade with China and continue to export money and our countries equity to them until we have no more faith from them and they literally own us. Something needs to change from the way it has been going and its not going to come from a career politician.

Funny, but didn't Trump just spend the last 4 years lying to America about anything and everything? Didn't he just spend the last few months lying about the outcome of the 2020 election, and wasn't he attempting the overthrown the results of our election by any means necessary, including a violent coup. All in an attempt to stay in power and continue his highly lucrative grift on the American taxpayer.

Strange that all those so-called socialist countries like Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands seem to always have the best quality of life,standard of living, and the happiest citizens.....

You're right I'm sure Trump does lie. Perhaps he really meant or believed those things though? That would fit with his egotistical narcissism.

Do a little more research on all those countries. Having socialist tendencies doesn't make you socialist/communist.

To be clear I dont believe the US should have any socialist tendencies that come at the expense of the general public. An effective government should not need to victimize its people who work hard to support its health as a whole. I don't want to live in those countries and I don't believe this class of politicians has the right to change how our country has existed since its birth. Get your tinfoil hats on and start reading Orwell because it's all down hill once they do.

I call companies bringing manufacturing back from China to the US, because increased tariffs and reduced corporate taxes made it beneficial to do so, helping them. Granted it was not nearly enough but it happened.

I dont call increasing the corporate tax rate to drive manufacturing out of this country and taking away peoples way to support themselves benefiting them. Actually the opposite, it makes them reliant upon social services. Are they going to vote for someone who wants to take those services away from them? No, they will vote for those who enact legislation to benefit those who can't support themselves. I dont blame those people because it's not their fault the system is broken.

The more people have to worry about struggling to survive the less they care about other things. Its all about control and getting votes. The next step is to take away your second amendment right so there is no reason for the ruling class to fear the general population.

I’m just so utterly discouraged by the fact that no matter what I say I am ridiculed and called unintelligent for having a conservative viewpoint. I have such a high respect for all of you on here as you all have taught me so much about arboriculture. I am so grateful for the wisdom that you all so freely share. But why can’t a conservative have a voice? The entire mainstream media and now all mainstream social media is silencing any voice that doesn’t fit their agenda. They say they are “fact checking” and “removing hate speech” when in all actuality they’re just silencing one side, conservatives. And now, Tom Dunlop you are even silencing conservatives on this platform.

I don’t believe there’s any difference between the office of President and the person who sits in it. They are one and the same. You can’t talk about Donald Trump without talking about the President of the United States of America. I’m just so hurt by how you all have disrespected this office. I believe Donald Trump is one of the greatest conservative presidents that our country has ever had. You all think he’s horrible because you only listen to mainstream media which, again, is trying to silence conservatism. No man is perfect, and Trump has his flaws, but politically he has accomplished more for conservatives than both Bush’s combined.

I can guarantee you that I will respect President Biden even though I don’t agree with most of his policies and values. I will simply resign from political threads on here.

I want to say again, thank you all for your willingness to share your wisdom in arboriculture. This forum has been a truly invaluable resource for me as I continue to learn and grow as an arborist. Thank you all.
