So if my choice for president is between a bellicose businessman who is pro-worker, pro-America, pro-life, pro-law enforcement, and pro-peace, and a doddering corrupt career politician who has been wrong on every issue — both domestic and foreign — for decades, and is now simply a trojan horse for the AOC wing of his party, I will gladly choose the former.

Trump 2020!

Jim, your commentary is spot on!

NewMarketParent

@Letter Writer

If you start out a letter with what is pretty objectively a complete lie, it can't get any better from there. Please learn to distinguish facts from fiction. I realize that you are desperate to hold onto white supremacy, but you shouldn't let being deplorable define you.

JerryR

Your boy Sleepy Joe is in some poop now once the Hunter Biden emails from his laptop get into the open. That will be a major game changer over the next 3 weeks. I can't wait for the fireworks to start. Of course the lame stream media will try to tamp it down as is FB and Twitter are already trying to do. It's gonna get good!!!

Greg F

Trump is pro peace how, by poking the bears? Coddling putin and Kim jung Il? By pushing away decades old alliances and breaking treaties? Get real Jer...you would want peace with east germany.

jerseygrl42

you are clueless in this matter and the writer of this piece is Spot-On

JerryR

Hahahaha!! I knew when i read it, this LTE would bring out the left wingnut trolls in droves!! It's always the same ones though!! Now that the truth is coming out on Hunter Biden and his fathers influence on the Ukrainians on his sons behalf, the stink of Biden is rising....Hahahahahaha!!!

NewMarketParent

@JerryR

Rightwing cultist jumps on thread to point fingers at others and call them trolls. If only the right could put as much time/effort into education as into putting their fingers in their ears and yelling "I can't hear you, la...la...la".

PurplePickles aka L&M

@NMP

So I guess us left wingnut trolls (which does have a ring to it if you say it fast) aren't supposed to comment on a LTE written by a rightwing cultist? Well okay but .....oh yeah I forgot your typical rightwing cultist is also an uneducated hypocrite. And you and I both know they will never understand our comments because we use such big words like education.

NewMarketParent

@PurplePickles

The do know 2 other big words, Socialism and Communism. They don't know what they mean, but Faux taught them to yell them loud and often and interchange them.

It used to be shameful to be ignorant, but Faux taught them to lean into it.

PurplePickles aka L&M

@NMP

I also just realized something you will LOL at! Republican/hypocrite are Synonyms which makes Republican hypocrite an oxymoron....now did you chuckle a tad when you read this? Because your last comment did make me LOL...lol

PurplePickles aka L&M

@NMP

Faux also taught them not care about being laughed at when they tossed around those words Socialism, Communism and to not be ashamed of being ignorant, really by example more than anything and those darned commercials for Brawndo.

Imagine where we would be right now if instead Faux did the exact opposite and didn't sell orange Brawndo for the low low price of $9.99...Idiocracy would truly be satire instead of real life.

The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.....you are proof!!

Well Jim Richards has certainly made it clear he is drinking his orange kool-aid with out question what his kool-aid actually contains. The orange kool-aid cult followers have also stated they are drinking their kool-aid without caring what the kool-aid contains and that is exactly how the orange one likes it as he looks out at his cult of orange kool-aid drinkers and knows it's just a matter of time before they are dead from the orange kool-aid.

NewMarketParent

@PurplePickles

Brawndo!

It's got what plants crave!

It is plain to see that the letter writer would thrive in the world satirically described in Idiocracy, but I refuse to give in to the stupids that are currently captaining this failed administration.

Here is a mental exercise for Trump supporters. Remember back to 1991 when Trump said on Meet the Press that he was pro-choice and even against banning partial birth abortions? Fast forward to 2011 when he announced he changed his mind. Why do you think he was pro-choice, and why do you think he changed his mind? (Hint: Both answers have to do with what was best for him.)

bosco

Here is a mental exercise for Harris-Biden supporters. Why do you think Harris-Biden have flip flopped on fracking? Free health care for illegal aliens? Defunding the police? Just to name a few. [lol][ninja]

Whataboutism and button pushing in one post! You go bosco!

Ah yes, there's that reference to whataboutism again. The same whataboutism you criticize others for using until it's convenient for you to use it yourself. Thank you for continuing to prove my point, hay. Good job. [thumbup]

Hayduke2, the master troll, button pusher, and whataboutist. How cute. [ninja]

CD - hate to say you rarely have a point but if it helps you feel better about yourself, go right ahead with your supposed snappy retorts.

phydeaux994

hay, bosco is famous for his creative wit and snappy retorts. He is quite proud of that talent. In fact many of bosco’s comments consist of snappy retorts to dodge answering the question or serious debate. My opinion.

NewMarketParent

@Hayduke2

That's all they have been approved to do by their Russian masters.

Greg F

Distractions? That's all you have? Why can't you focus on the absolute sh**ty things Donnie Trump does even for a second there Boz? Are you wearing a mask over your eyes and ears too? How on earth can you excuse things trump has done and continues to do? No, Biden isn't a perfect choice and what candidate of yours and current occupant of the GOP offices has not DIRECTLY FLIPPED on major (more major) issues than Fracking? How many flipped on SCOTUS? Wow Boz....you are one piece of steadfast turd-polishing die-hard lover of things that just plain SU*K!!!

threecents

OK Bosco, but answer my question first.

olefool

This comment bosco, just shows us that your mental acuity has diminished to a level so low that it is not worth a mention anymore..... Nobody's flip flopped, nobody's giving free healthcare to illegals, and nobody's defunding the police..... Get a grip!!

phydeaux994

bosco, give us a link to prove your assertion that Biden said these things. Just name a few, you should have plenty. It’s all on the internet if it’s true. Should be simple.

bosco

Like Doctor Fed Up GregF said recently Fido, "get a map and google it". Biden adamantly stated that he would ban fracking, before he flip flopped. You must not have watched the Dim candidate debates where every candidate raised their hand and pledged to give free medical care to illegal aliens. Come on, man. It's hard to run in flip flops.

Have you even bothered to read the Bernie-Biden socialist manifesto that Biden has posted on his website? All 110 pages?

[ninja]

phydeaux994

I don’t believe Biden said those things. Prove it. I have heard Biden say he didn’t say those things. I believe him, not you. Prove me wrong. I’m not perfect, despite what you and CD think. Peace.✌️

Greg F

Boscov...we are talking about Fracking....it is not like flipflopping on an issue like SCOTUS nominees, and not nearly as important as things like TAKING TROOPS out of Europe against the better advice from military leaders. It is not the same as being a continual liar, or a pedophile rapist, or a mafia tied goon who peddles influence to enemies. You are trying desperately to bring this up as if this were the be-all, end-all issue of the election. Really....people can change their mind on something once informed better about issues. Trump is well informed...supposedly, on a host of issues, yet he flouts all advice and bashes on through the forest wildly swinging his machete as he stumbles toward the cliff. TRUMP flip flopped on downplaying vs up-playing (is that even a word) the virus...flip flops on masks depending on his audience. He says one thing and hours later says he never said it, even though on tape. His entire party flip flopped on SCOTUS nominations. So, bring up fracking all you want, it is a mere pittance compared to your guy.

Greg F

OH..and bonzo...have you read the trump tax returns? Obviously someone did, and it's pretty bad. There's a flip flop for ya....show you my taxes after the election...whooops....where'd they go? And as for the "socialist' manifesto...that's your wording for it...and I'll take that over the BS that your POS is putting out...which you know all too well that he has not got the power to enact any of that w/o the votes to do it. So...another false issue you want to blow up bigger than it is. Your guy would praise the Manson manifesto.

NewMarketParent

@phydeaux994

Just remember, that when called to produce proof, all right-wing trolls will fall back to their old standard of the Burden of Proof Fallacy. They will tell everyone else that they can somehow Google their lies. You can't find proof of an argument made in bad faith.

Piedmontgardener

This is the lowest form of political commentary, sling a number of pejoratives at your opponents and make cut and paste claims. I remember when people were smarter than this.

Still am, but just sick of the b$ on both sides.

Everybody knows Jim Richards, he's from Thurmont and most of those who live there are suffering under the same pandemic as him, it's called the "Trump Cult Syndrome". I'm sure he's proud of his hero but he should try to use his expertise and get some electricity to spark an original thought in his mind. .

Reader1954

at least Trump came in with his own money instead of other politicians leaving rich with my money

Mixer

You are sadly mistaken. Even other Trump supporters know this statement is far from the true. He’s taking and using “your” money in ways you wouldn’t care for if you stepped outside of his cult news channel and researched.

gary4books

Are you sure? Reports are that he had debt up to his ears when elected and needs to pay a lot back very soon. And his hotels make a lot of money off the Secret Service and other US Government workers on official business.

jerseygrl42

...and yet he donates his entire salary...and no one should stay at his hotels or the sky will fall again...how absurd

threecents

Trump got his money through shady real estate and gambling businesses, bankruptcy courts, and for being a corrupt celebrity. He is in debt for over 400 million dollars. He makes a big show of giving his salary to charity, but he is making many more millions from other countries and businesses he should have divested from. Wake up.

NewMarketParent

@threecents

You forget that daddy lent him a few million dollars as well. I guess the old self-made man fantasy has fallen flat on its face, yet again.

Seriously? You can't be serious making the assertion that he used his own money. Which particular rock do you live under?

Your man is $400 million in hock. Additionally, he has paid $750 in taxes for the last few years. You know how? He has claimed losses. Never trust someone who bankrupted a few casinos. Either they aren't good with money or they are laundering it.

You forgot many pros: pro-racist, pro-sexist, pro-xenophobic, pro-homophobic, pro-adulter, pro-tax dodger, pro-draft dodger, pro-liar/cheater, pro-russia/north korea,

pro-communist. You cant have one without mentioning the other. Im sure there are many other pro’s that I forgot.

Greg F

Author is living in an alternate world where Trump is Prince Valiant and that he somehow should be knighted. Same with the usual crew that can find no fault in Trumpidydump at all, and that have no reservations about his past and present whacked behavior. Trump has a rap sheet a mile long and decades deep that ranges from mafia-like behavior to creepy pedophile misogynistic sexual situations that have landed many charges including one of child rape. Author and his cadre of nitwit followers seem to have no issues with rampant and obvious racism and trumps full backing by the KKK and Nazi parties, who actively waive confederate and Nazi flags at his rallies. So...it makes me wonder if they themselves support those aspects of society. It would be no surprise, given the number of hate groups in MD that involve Nazis and KKK activities. Anyway....here's a mild version of Trump's rap sheet....surely you can find something redeeming in here, right? https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/01/donald-trump-scandals/474726/

bnick467

A business man who bankrupted every casino he owned, he's pro-worker but hires illegal aliens instead of Americans, he's pro-America but creates foreign policy beneficial to our nations sworn enemies, he's pro-life but has paid for multiple abortions, he's pro-law enforcement so he can use them to clear the streets when he wants a photo-op at a church across the street, and pro-peace while he does everything he can to provoke a war with Iran...

Sounds like someone needs to do his research.

phydeaux994

Trump got nearly 3 Million votes less than Hillary piddle. That’s called LOSING in every instance except the Electoral College-3/5 Compromise inserted in the Constitution in deference to Southern States who demanded it to preserve slavery in the new Nation under threat of not Ratifying the Constitution. The Electoral College-3/5 Compromise was a shameful deal forced on Madison/Hamilton to have the Constitution Ratified by the required 9 of the 13 States. Even the winner of ALL of the Electoral College votes a State gets is determined by majority vote. Talk about hypocrisy!! The 2 worst Presidents in History, George W and Trump were elected by the EC. Enough said.

fjulia

Oh this should be good, can't wait to read "the usual suspects" as they attack and counter-attack. One observation, pro-American implies you respect our Constitution. Clearly this buffoon of businessman does not. Of course the letter writer would have to read/ listen to a source other than Fox.

pdl603

Fjulia, as opposed to your sources of Party propaganda. I’ll wait for you to tell me how the Greatest President does not respect the constitution, please enlighten me.

C.D.Reid

Obama used the Constitution for a door mat, and they say Trump doesn't respect it? THAT'S a good one! [lol]

Greg F

Obama was and still is a constitutional lawyer CD...are you? You don't know the first thing about it since you can't tell Trump uses it as a snot rag. I'm guessing you have an idea of what the constitution is that may have been passed down from Robert E. Lee.

Here's that snotrag example for trump, CD...I'm sure you will ignore it or just not have the capacity to read it. https://www.theusconstitution.org/blog/president-trump-mocking-the-constitution/

Brookhawk

Why don't we just start with his claim, in court, that the Constitution allows him as president not only to do what he wants, but to be free from any investigation as to whether he has done any wrong. The Supreme Court - THIS Supreme Court - shot him down 6-0 on that.

bosco

I would also like to know what parts of the Constitution 45 has violated. Please enlighten, with specific references.[ninja]

1st Amendment also....and if it ISN'T a clear violation to you, also consider he has labeled the free press as the "enemy of the state" just like your dear pal Joseph Goebbels. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/trumps-grotesque-violation-first-amendment/612532/

@Reek

It must hurt to learn about the Emoluments clause. I believe the ACA provides care for burns.

bnick467

I'm not who you asked, but if I may contribute... Trump commenced violating the Constitution one second after he was sworn in. By refusing to hand over control of his business empire to a blind trust, he personally profits from his role as President by accepting money from foreigners who stay at his properties. He also attempted to hold the G7 summit at a location he owns so he could line his own pockets, and called the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution "phony". He has also stated that he thinks we should take the guns first and worry about due process second when discussing red-flag laws. His attacks on and threats against newspapers and news media has shown that he wishes to silence the free press. He constantly violates court orders in regards to spending money without approval from Congress, has sent the military to intervene in domestic issues, and ignores Congressional subpoenas. All that from a 3 minute Google search. I'm sure if you were inclined, you could easily find more.

Constant violation of Hatch Act, impeached , neoptism with family, pardons for convicted criminals who support him, illegal executive orders, possible tax evasion, refusal to allow testimony before Congress, etc...

Greg F

Don't forget witness intimidation, lies under oath (I'm sure we have plenty of that). We all know OJ did it...yet he didn't get the initial conviction. Just 'cause Trumpydumb had a stacked and rushed impeachment does NOT mean he was without guilt....and he can and should still be brought to justice after he exits...which is entirely possible and likely. He is not done at all with the legal system, and his actions these days is of a frightened little boy who knows his time is about up before he goes behind the woodshed.

threecents

Greg, Just the witness intimidation and withholding of evidence during the impeachment and Senate hearings should have been enough to convict.

Greg F

Piddle...if we have to point that out to you (which is in my other comments..so go read them, lazybones) then you have a serious mental capacity problem, and a problem grasping even quite simple concepts.
