    I think the witch hunt claim is based on the accusation that candidate Trump and/or his campaign colluded with the Russian government to throw the election to Trump.

    As far as I know (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong,) none of the charges against Trump staffers are related to that nor has any evidence been presented that the alleged collusion took place.

    Not saying staffers won’t be charged with collusion-related crimes in the future or evidence of collusion won’t come forward; just saying I don’t believe either has happened yet.

    But, by all means, have another go at it.
    Well, you started a thread concerning "the legacy of socialism." If you then don't want to discuss the legacy of socialism that's of course your prerogative, but it does seem somewhat peculiar.

    numbers: republicans have taken 5 900 000 $ in bribes from gun lobbyists, democrats have taken 100k$

    over his political career, john mccain has taken 7 740 000$. Richard Burr almost 7million. Roy Blunt 4.5 million.


    Who do you think they will look after? The gun lobbyists or the people?

    Very good St. Glass Jaw.

    Of course you can for years attack Christians in hundreds of ways subtle and rude. That's of course all just normal discussion.

    But if some pointed talk comes back your way ??
    I could take hours to collect all the crappy things you said to and about me. But its a waste of my time.

    Howl about awkward lashing out to get as much sympathy as you can. But you've always been here on the offensive at Spirituality, especially against lovers of Jesus Christ.

    So Charlie Brown - "Why's everybody always picking on me?" rings hollow.

    I''ll tell you what. You're certainly a reasonably happy go lucky dude. And I wish you a super creative life. But you're wrong about Jesus. And you never presented anything better than Jesus as far as the scores archived thread pages I can see.

    But you know I have to believe that the Bible doesn't lie.
    The wicked are like the waves tossed about in the sea. There is no peace for the wicked.

    We sinners (you too) need to be reconciled to God.

    "But... Let's say there is a 12-13 year old kid who wants to have hormone replacement theory because they think they are of the opposite gender, and their parents disapprove?"
    but that is not the situation here, is there? a psych evaluation declared the 17 year old on the verge of suicide and recommended a treatment.

    the situation in the original post is much closer to that life saving blood tranfusion than your irrelevant example.

    The most annoying thing for transgendered people to listen to is people who know nothing about them giving advice on how they should live their lives.
    Fact: Unless you are transgendered you cannot fathom "how it feels".

    Three staffers (Papadopoulos, Flynn and Sessions) have been caught lying to the government about Russian contacts. Two were formally charged for it.

    The fact that three people have lied to protect Trump and/or themselves regarding Russian collusion means it's likely more people have lied about it. People lying to investigators, obviously, makes it much more difficult to bust Trump.

    If lack of evidence for collusion is by no means evidence it didn't happen. It could simply mean that there are enough dishonest people to impede the investigation.

    Watergate was, for all intents and purposes, a direct mirror of what Obama's FBI (and who knows what other clandestine spook group) did in the run-up to the election.

    Freaky: It is laughable beyond description

    Yes, your crackpot description, believed in by a fair percentage of right wing buffoons, is "laughable beyond description".


    There has been zero credible evidence produced of any "criminal activity" as regards the FBI directed toward your "victim" i.e. Donald Trump's campaign. By contrast, there is abundant proof in the public record that high officials in that campaign met with Russians in an attempt to obtain damaging material against a political opponent, concealed those meetings and lied about them when questioned.

    I don't agree with most of those procedures either.

    To me, being transgender is a form of being unhappy with your physical appearance. Everyone suffers from this in some way or another. Just as anorexic people think they are fat and they become unwell.

    We should teach self acceptance instead of resorting to mutilation of what you were given.
    Would you deem them "mentally unwell" or mentally unfit to decide whether or not to elect to have the procedure?
