    Wrong, I stand by what I said and I will not bother myself to start laying out for you Clinton's bloody trail, nor Obama's long list of dividing the country and bowing to his Muslim roots.
    Have you figured out yet why you think DeVos is such a good cabinet pick?

    Yes, because it does not get much worse than John B. King Jr. and Arne Duncan

    In normal usage, when a sentence starts with "Yes, because [...]" it tends to be followed by an explanation as to why the question was answered in the affirmative.

    Okay, put a "because " after my yes, then read the article. 😲

    Instead of giving a mealy-mouthed, diversionary response every time someone asks your opinion about specific policies, why not simply admit you do not care about the specifics of politics and you trust whomever you regard as the leader of your community to do what is best?

    Ok, I don't have the time to follow every political person, political movement , so I have to trust somewhat.

    Bannon and Breitbart have been champions for the right for some time, investigating and exposing the corruption of the Left.
    Just because they champion the right, doesn't mean they're mentally stable, trustworthy or honest.

    Say Bannon was championing the Left... what would you think of him?

    This is a bit like debating the merits of different football teams and the evoluton of the beautiful game with someone who just doggedly supports one team, win or lose. Come on the reds!

    Not really because if he was championing the left, his views would be completely different.

    I see. Well, instead of cheerleading for the Party, you could also opt to invest some time to see whether that trust is justified.

    Let's be clear, I don't view Bannon, or for that matter Trump, as "saints".
    I do believe they are the best vehicle towards more good than a HC or Obama were.

    But you do not have a coherent or articulate basis for the frankly absurd belief.

    Yes I do, they just don't coincide with yours. I think they are more in line with Christian goals.
