Polling aside, Duchess is correct, and you are not.
    As much as I hate to admit it, The Duchess is sharp and accurate.

    I sent you that 2 weeks ago skippy. It was Rob Rosenstein's legal directive to Robert Mueller, you refused to read it.

    You're not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you??

Obviously they were talking about the mainstream, non-cable media. Common sense.
    In what way is Fox not big and not mainstream? They are pretty right wing and might be moving in an alt-right direction editorially, but they are just the Murdoch Press. I'd dispute the notion that they are anything but a big business.

    John 3:
    16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

    Ezekiel 18:21
    “But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die.

    Ezekiel 18:23
    Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?

    Ezekiel 18:32
    For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.”

    Romans 5:8
    but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

    A lot of talk about God hating, the main focus is that God does not want
    any to die in their sins, He is fighting for us not against us. He has taken
    our sins upon Him, Jesus became sin to save us. The very symbol that
    showed the wall between the most Holy and us was torn from top to
    bottom, Heaven to earth. To show us we can go to God now, the way
    has been make open by Jesus.

    Mark 15:38
    And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.

    God isn't against us, but for us.

    Romans 8:31
    What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

    I just saw Trump’s announcent.

    This is another layer of hillarity upon an already dangerously stacked comedic steam train of moronity.

    And did he actually say that the space force would have equal rights???

    Haha
    God damn. I’m gonna need stitches by the time this year’s passed.

    “This is a big announcement.” the truumpster added.
    Just in case we think for ourselves and conclude the man’s a mental fruitcake.

    But you know what's coming.

    Headlines: "USA stands against human rights."
    The Human Rights Council has had the same position regarding Israel for many, many years. Don't you see something fishy that Trump withdraws the day after HE'S criticized for how he's treating immigrant children?

    This has nothing to do with Trump's beliefs about Israel. This has everything to do with his inability to take criticism and his massive ego.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jun/17/why-dutch-bring-up-worlds-happiest-teenagers

    "Why Dutch teenagers are among the happiest in the world"

    "In report after report, the Netherlands tops OECD countries for high life
    satisfaction among its young people.

    It contrasts starkly with the picture in countries like Britain, where depression
    and anxiety are on the rise among teenagers, and the US, where the
    number of young people taking their own lives has risen sharply."

    "If you look across Europe, the Dutch and the Danes are the most lenient
    and focus more on developing autonomy than giving priority to obedience
    – and that fits the society,”

    "The HBSC data supports this: 86% of Dutch teenagers say their classmates
    are kind and helpful, putting the country top of the tables at 13 and 15.
    Sex education starts at four,...The rate of teenage pregnancies in the
    Netherlands is also the lowest in the EU."

    "In the Netherlands we are rich, most things around children are well
    organised, like school and healthcare, and if people are poor, we try to
    help them. That’s maybe why children are happy."

    No, Donald Trump’s separation of immigrant families was not Barack Obama’s policy

    Sure, I'm sticking a bit of a thumb in the eyes of right wingers here who insisted the policy was legally required up until yesterday. They kinda don't like that. The title was easier and more fun to type than "Trump Reverses Family Separation Policy" though (which might not have fit).

    So... you find it necessary to insult him (which the NY Times didn't), even when he takes measures to fix what you complain about. Says a lot about you. And your lack of virtue.
    he is the one who made the mess in the first place.

    if a drunkard takes a crap in the middle of the street i don't give him praise that after the entire world screamed at him to clean it up he actually does it.

    what the hell is wrong with you people. have you such low self esteem that you praise him for the most inane and common sense things?

    How is that an "insult"? "Cave", in this sense, means "capitulate or submit under pressure" which is what Trump certainly did. The use by me and the headline is certainly accurate.

    Technically correct; the headline said "retreats" and the first sentence says "caved". But they are synonyms here; one is no more "insulting" than the other.

    As of yesterday, you, other right wing drones, Trump's minions and the Donald himself said that the policy was required by law and there was nothing he could do to legally end it.

    What changed?
