If this guy is a lefty

How does Limpballs explain the targets? None of them are people that extreme leftys would naturally target and all are people whom have been- at one time or another- attacked and singled out by.........Trump.

Not waiting for an explanation from him, just saying

October 26, 2018

And a lone wolf, etc.

The fact that the bombs all went explicitly to people/organizations repeatedly targeted by Trump as dangers to the country in one way or another will be conveniently ignored.

Quelle irony:

Master of distraction complains about......distraction

Who couldn't have predicted this?

The GOOD economy is due to Trump's awesome businesses/managerial omnipotence but the BAD economy is due to Democrats/George Soros/Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama/Nancy Pelosi *argle bargle*

We go through the same song and dance about every 4-8 years

Elect Republicans whom starve the government and drive up the deficits with tax breaks heavily tilted towards the wealthy and endless spending and (usually) drive the economy into a recession with their policies. Then, people get mad at them and elect Democrats afterwards whom raise taxes back to a sane level and cut back on spending (mostly because Republicans start squawking about the deficits that don't matter except for when they say they do) and get the economy back in shape in enough time for the public to sour on the Democrats and elect Republicans again. Wash.Rinse.Repeat.

It seems like it should be fairly obvious which party is better for the country/economy in general but, surprisingly it isn't.

He's got a LOOOOOOONG way to go

to make us believe that he is sincere about those words, which will probably be contradicted the minute that he opens his mouth at his next hate rally.

And, even if you completely deny climate change entirely and don't even want to touch the subject at all, *who* wants to live a massively polluted, burned out world with no resources available to sustain us on an indefinite basis? Who want to leave THAT "legacy" for their children, grandchildren, etc.?

And yet

wingnuts consistently act like they are "just not sure" about what is happening, deny it altogether, and/or lean on a tiny minority of skeptics

One could easily say the same about the Republican Party

and the Trump Crime Family (which are more or less the same thing now)

I feel sad that Warren felt she had to do this

It's never about proving Trump wrong. Trump doesn't actually care about whether he's right or wrong and neither do his supporters. For him, the fact that he got somebody to simply respond to him and *do* something he demanded feeds his ego and validates his behavior. My guess is that she might run for POTUS against Trump and wanted to neutralize the whole "Pocahontas" attack line but it won't matter what the results say. He and his supporters will still use it and then he will gaslight us and tell us that somebody else started the whole nonsense and that he put a stop to it. He's ALREADY gaslighting us by saying that he never promised to give a million dollars to her favorite charity. We need to stop playing into this fool's hands and basically give him the middle finger when he tries to pull this sort of s**t!
