First I do not accept stories from a source who does not tell me about who they are.

Second there is a difference between implying, and inferring.

The left will overstate any thing they can to discredit or demonize Trump.

My analysis is if you think the president has done anything to stop ISIS in the US, I would like to know what it is.

Is the press inferring Trump is implying?

If as reported this is Trump's quote, "We're led by a man who either is not tough, not smart or has something else in mind"; where in that statement is he claiming that Obama is an ISIS sleeper agent?

COL Ted Mc - I hear you, but I see nothing left about this country worth really giving a crap about. My plan will be to look out for my family, quietly live out the rest of my days without hurting anyone, but I can't say I care about the future of America.

MSG Tom Earley - Master Sergeant; I'm sad for you.

There is MUCH more about America to be proud of than there is to be ashamed of and not even the Founding Fathers thought that they had created an "Instant Perfect Country".

What the Founding Fathers DID create was a mythos and it is the mythos that created a goal to be worked towards.

Any "failing" by America does not involve not reaching that goal but DOES involve not trying to reach that goal.

You can be as honest (and cynical) about the past as you want, but when you stop getting out front and calling "Follow me." then you have abandoned ALL of the good in favor of the bad. The history of the United States of America is analogous (in "warm-fuzziness") to the Duke of Wellington's epigram about the Peninsular Army "They may not scare the French, Gentlemen, but by God they scare me.".

In short, making gold out of dross IS possible.

COL Ted Mc - I hear you, but no need to be sad for me because I am free from the burden of serving, or caring about a failed system. No flag to salute, and no country to claim as my own. Just a resident of planet Earth who no longer cares who wins or looses.
