I can find almost nothing good to say about FoxNews, their programs, and their web site -- but by Gawd, I love the people who comment on stories.

Talk about a toxic environment. But funny.

Just got to share one of my favorites.

The Let me just say as a PATRIOTIC CHRISTIAN AMERICAN RETIRED MILITARY VETERAN...

I. Don't. Care.

Even if there's a TAPE of Donald Trump Jr. exchanging TOP SECRET codes to the Russians, if that's what it took to keep that EVIL WITCH out of the White House, THEN IT WAS WELL WORTH IT!!!

BRAVO!!!

MANY times in the Bible, God used our enemies for his GLORY!

And I'm CONVINCED that HIS WILL was making sure Donald Trump became President of the United States!!!

Yes, and throw in your typical quota of "But Obama" and "But Hillary" comments in there, and you have a GOP party!

Here's a quote from one of the deeper commenters:

Can you not see that this was a specifically designed sting operation to catch the younger Trump, which was perpetrated by the Clinton and Obama crime syndicates?

You can't make this shit up. There really are people out there who think like this !

I've seen a lot of people saying that and just wonder why they fail to realize that that could have been easily avoided by just saying "NO" to the meeting instead of "I love it".

Well let's decompose that.

Patriotic - As in last refuge of a scoundrel.
Christian - Covers a wide range. Not one of the more pleasant branches.
American - Sorry, decent Americans, I think you're almost certainly stuck with this one.
Retired - Not working I certainly believe.
Military Veteran - I'd lay odds against this one.

Yeah, I can't stomach comments just about anywhere these days, I'm sure as heck not going to read those on Fox. I'm convinced humans aren't evolved enough to interact mostly-anonymously on places without strict moderation, and even then I wonder how beneficial it is to be on forums like these. Like, does anything ever get solved? Do I ever feel better after "conversing" on here? "Social networking" is our version of the Krell energy-to-matter technology...completely destructive in the end to our society.

That's my Jack Handey deep thoughts for today...and the irony of posting them on a forum is not lost

It does so remind one of the parable of the tax collect and the pharisee.

Quote:
He spoke also this parable to certain people who were convinced of their own righteousness, and who despised all others. "Two men went up into the temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed to himself like this: 'God, I thank you, that I am not like the rest of men, extortioners, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week. I give tithes of all that I get.' But the tax collector, standing far away, wouldn't even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, a sinner!' I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."

— Luke 18:9-14,

False comparison! Alex Jones subscribes to the serpent-people notions advanced by British conspiracy theorist David Icke.

The late Zecharia Sitchin was never interviewed by either Alex Jones or David Icke for that matter.

So, spin again.

McConnell : Well.. I didn't expect a Russian Meeting Inquisition

Donald Trump Jr: NOBODY expects the Russian Meeting Inquisition! Our only member was me... me and jarred ... me, jarred, and manafort....

Our three members were me, jarred, and manafort...and Natalia Veselnitskaya....

Our *four* members were me, jarred, and manafort...and Natalia Veselnitskaya...and almost no one else except Rinat Akhmetshin who has ties to Russian Intelligence agencies.

Our *five*...no... *Amongst* our meeting members....

Amongst our meeting members...are such members as me, jarred, Manafort, Natalia Veselnitskaya, Rinat Akhmetshin, and Anatoli Samochornov

.... I'll come in again.

(Trump prompts McConnel from outside door...)


McConnell : Expects... Nobody expects the...um...the Russian Meeting ...um...
Donald Trump Jr: Inquisition.

McConnell : I know, I know! Nobody expects the Russian Meeting Inquisition. In fact, those who do expect -
Donald Trump Jr: Our chief members are...
Jarred: Our chief members are...um...er...
Donald Trump Jr: Donald Trump Jr, ...
Jarred: Donald Trump Jr and --

Donald Trump Jr: Okay, stop. Stop. Stop there - stop there. Stop. Phew! Ah! ... our chief meeting members were me, Jarred, a few russions...blah blah blah. Rachel, read the charges.

Rachel Maddow: You are hereby charged that you did on diverse dates collude with the Russians. 'My old man said follow the--'

Jarred: That's enough.
[Maddow To Donald Trump Jr] Now, how do you plead?
Donald Trump Jr: We're innocent.
Jarred: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Hannity: Not nearly as bad as Clinton's email server scandal. Benghazi! Screechy voice!
