  1. I was on another article relating to Vietnam, the country not specifically the war. Not finding it on my iPad history so was probably using my laptop. I’ll put the link up later to show you. Currently on a brief break from washing walls and shelves at my mom’s house next door.
  2. Sure wish we had more men (and women) of courage today, particularly in the GOP.
  3. I have always heard it referred to as the fall of Saigon. I don’t suspect that the throngs of people desperate to be airlifted out, even handing their babies to strangers to be evacuated not to mention those who took the dangerous hike to Thailand to escape considered it a liberation either. I can see the Communists in Vietnam referring to it thus, but not a western esp US based source.
  4. This is definitely random. But then, it is Florida. 😂 https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2019/04/22/the-easter-bunny-literally-beat-someone-up-in-downtown-orlando-last-night?utm_source=feature&utm_medium=home&utm_campaign=hpfeatures&utm_content=HomeTopFeature&fbclid=IwAR13KSY_Z0dxNEFLUj-CDE3cn2aFb_K2v85CZgEwSdKrm9aOzGBCDWk4AYw
  5. Ford did the right thing, and got a raw deal over it. But I think he expected that, and was the type of leader who did the hard things (even accepting the role of VP) knowing that it was best for our country, even while knowing it was political suicide.
  6. I was rather surprised today while looking something up on Wikipedia (more a geographical type question) relative to Vietnam and noticed the Wikipedia refers to the day that the Vietnam Cong overran Saigon as the “liberation of Saigon.”
  7. I oppose Trump too. Back up and reconsider the thread which started with a tweet about death threats. Only you can judge if the political tone set by the Trump administration and the reaction to it nationally has affected your life and how you engage with other humans, and if on reflection it has been a positive in your life and relationships. I don’t know you well enough to judge that.
  8. Not the article I was looking for, but I found some good points in it. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/mind-in-the-machine/201712/trump-divided-america-psychology-heres-how-we-heal
  9. Is that what I said? (Rhetorical question. It is not.)
  10. It was one example of the generalized crazy in this country today. That he retains significant support. And he seems to have driven the opposition crazy as well. People being assaulted or thrown out of public accommodations for wearing red ball caps? Seriously? Looking at historical comparisons it appears to be the spread (far higher disapproval ratings) more than lower approval ratings that are the biggest difference. That said, I was noting how remarkable it was that his approval is as high as it is, how much support he retains. THAT is just nuts. Do you disagree?
  11. Right. Though, frankly, while I am loathe to give Trump in credit because I don't think he is actually running things, I do not hate every one of the policies that have come out of his administration. The Democrats should probably take note. Disliking Trump is not the same as embracing the policies that the DNC is espousing.
  12. We will have to agree to disagree on this. I'm seeing plenty of insanity from the left. In fact, didn't this exchange begin with my example of a kook who was sending white powder and death threats to Trump family members? Wasn't even sent to jail, or probably more properly a mental health facility.
  13. He has been mostly in the 40s. Some dip after the Mueller report. I don’t dispute that these are undoubtedly primarily Republicans but it is still a whole lot of Americans. I would expect it to be lower. But the numbers are not that dissimilar to Obama’s for his first two years.
