Conservatives face reality and do not let the follies of mankind go unchecked.
D. folly |ˈfälē| noun
1 lack of good sense; foolishness:
T. foolishness, foolhardiness, stupidity, idiocy, lunacy, madness, rashness, recklessness, imprudence, injudiciousness, irresponsibility, thoughtlessness, indiscretion; craziness.
Conservatives are concerned with maintaining individual independence through self-reliance for the sake of liberty. They know that laws are needed to maintain liberty. Some laws restrict individual liberty and some promote it. This is the great confusion of mankind:
trying to figure out which is which!
I think Putin knows which is which.
Putin and Trump vs. the Deep State- It Is Time to Choose Sides America
* http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2017/ … s-america/
Everyone, I advise you not to click on this link. My computer blocked six pop ups within a few seconds of the site loading. Also, another ad window on top of the article could not be closed. Beware!
Thank you for letting me know that. I will contact the site owner and let them know what you reported. There have been many Windows computers that were affected recently and things like you experienced are reported on conservative sites, but not on liberal sites. It would seems to be cyber warfare.
Better check your Windows if that's what you are running.
Cyber warfare. !!!
What is the war regarding, exactly?
And who against who, in reality?
If, the old saying "follow the money" has merit, then I think global banksters / globalists. Remembering the attacks on independent media and Hillary's "Alt-Right" media attack, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to imagine the Deep State's involvement as well (ie: the bad guys in the NSA, etc.).
When some one like Hillary calls something 'fake news', the reaction of millions of people is to go find out what the truth is for themselves. Things like that have a way of backfiring on her big time. We can all be grateful she is not the president or the First Amendment rights of independent media would be gone. Those sites are forever being attacked, if not that its lawfare (trumped up allegations) to try break them.
There is so much cyber warfare going on all the time, I can't keep up with it. Country against country, ideology against ideology.... There is always plenty of room for prayer in a fight between good and evil.
From my objective observing perspective, yes, "Liberals Are Too Trusting of Human Nature" because they do not know the word man's definition.
Unknown to us [at least by dictionary definition anyway] the prefix "hu" in human and "wo" in woman both means "incomplete" man which has the definition of "mind able to comprehend all things" and synonymous with god. The "hu" is a short form of "hewed" which make human to mean "hewed our of man" while the "wo" is short for "woven" which makes woman to mean "woven from man" that, with man meaning "mind able to comprehend all things," it is saying human and woman are unable to comprehend all things. From that perspective, unquestionably yes, all human/woman, Conservatives or Liberals, "Are Too Trusting of Human Nature."
You mean like Comey making statements under oath that contradict himself? Seems he lacks good sense and is foolish to do that. I do like that he called out MSM as 'fake news' under oath...but now I'm cheery picking the stupidity of the liberal press. That's what they do though.
And I'd say that some conservatives are not understanding or empathetic enough when it comes to individual circumstance.
But I'd also say it's a good thing that we have both kinds of people around to balance each other out. I am very cognizant of the fact that I can be a bit emotional and perhaps too trusting, but I also believe that I have rational thoughts driven by empathy and optimism. I expect conservatives to point out when my emotion is overtaking rational thought (which I can admit it sometimes does), likewise I'll always point out when I feel that conservatives are being a bit narrow-minded or dismissive.
++++++++++I think that what you just said is one of the most intelligent things I've heard a liberal say here , AND I mean that in a good way , . I can be a bit strict in the sense of conservatism but what we see here more than not are those that profess one thing and contradict themselves proving it .
Oh brothre! I got one pop-up
Go for it
What an article!
"What really turned around the Russia economy is due to the fact that Russia became the 6th largest holder of gold. And given the fact that Russia, despite spending large sums of money on its military, is quickly becoming the soundest economy on the planet. Unlike the United States where record corporate profits has not trickle down to the masses, Russia has the fastest growing middle class on the planet. Since Putin has come to power, no other nation can match Russia’s growing GDP.
Americans Would Die for Putin’s Reforms
Like all good politicians, Putin has learned to control his image through the creation of RT, something that Trump has considered doing. Yesterday, I postulated that Putin was indeed a Christian. This belief is bolstered by his social and political reforms. Putin have built more than 16,000 Christian churches. The tax system in Russia favors having children and there is no marriage penalty tax as there is in the United States.
Putin has had the Christian backbone to ban LGBT propaganda that demand SPECIAL treatment instead of the same protections under the law as everyone else. In Russia, there are no drag queens reading to school age children in a manner that promotes a perverted life-style. George Soros is banned from setting foot in Russia.
On the terrorist front, Putin’s military is attempting to exterminate the CIA/Clinton created ISIS instead of using them as a political tool.
Putin has moved to protect the health and welfare of his people by banning cancer-causing, Monsanto based GMO’s."
Wow Kathyrin! You own such good knowledge about Putin!!
I copied the article from the link that colorful one provided, you silly!
Lol! I am embarrassed.
In my defense, you answered my question on Autism so beautifully so I believed the same about Putin. But you just turned down the credit
I'm sure I lifted some of that autism stuff too! I always provide a link. Usually, I make it very clear by typing FROM (and then the link) in capitals! I guess I got lazy today. Another tip of course are the quotation marks which are apparently easy to miss, as many have thought the same as you : that I am a really great writer.
OKay. My day has begun with proof that I am dumb. Proved Twice by A Kathryn. You still remain a great writer. That's why I follow you
So Putin's a great Christian. He gained his power by rising up through the ranks of the Russian Mafia. Are they great Christians, too? Maybe he's the Anti-Christ. The little Baptist church I grew up in warned us that the Anti-Christ would be cloaked in beauty to fool everyone. What a great propaganda piece! Are y'all really buying it?
Yes, we believe what we would like to believe is true.
I have listened to many Putin videos as he talks about his faith, about his Christian mother and the cross she gave him that he carries on him at all times. I listen to him with my heart or spirit, and I do believe he is a Christian.
Does that mean Putin hasn't done some bad things that were necessary to take Russia back from the Soviets? No, but it was for a good cause. Putin was KGB, once a KGB always a KGB. But, there are good and bad groups of KGB. The bad KGB guys would like nothing better than to assassinate Putin, so they could get back into power.
Russian people love Putin because of what he has done for them, life just keeps getting better for them now.
It witnesses to my spirit that Putin is a Christian. You can't believe all the propaganda that gets spread about him. Russia does not have a Rothschild central bank, and the Globalists would like to overthrow Putin and the Russian government and put in a leader that would bow to them, and screw the citizens for all they can.
Putin is a very honest man, he tells the truth, he works for the good of the people and country, and he will protect them with everything he has. He is a true leader!
Time can either work for us or against us. I use to believe some of the propaganda about Putin, but there was always something about him, so I decided to do my own research a couple years ago and hear him out for myself. Now, I am a regular listener to Putin. I got a kick out of him wiping the floor with Megan Kelly in the interview recently.
Putin worships at a Russian Orthodox church.
And you think Comey should not be able to call himself American whilst singing the praises of not only Trump but dictator and murderer Putin.
I'm wondering if you should call yourself American. I'm wondering who is paying you to post this BS.
Colorfulone, have you ever been to Russia? I have. If you believe what you just said, I've got a gold mine down in the Florida Everglades I'd like to offer you at a fantastic price.
If you had ever spent time under the scrutiny of the KGB, you wouldn't say that.
Why would she write it if she doesn't believe i?
I have not, but my sister was there when it was the Soviet Union. She was with a missionary group that smuggled Bibles in and helped start new churches. It was shortly after that the Iron Curtain fell, I remember that day so well. Anyway, I have a heart towards the people of Russia and remember them in prayer.
BTW, its a good time to invest in gold and silver.
@ MiZBejabbers: What was so terrifying about the KGB scrutiny that you know of?
Pen, I saw our Russian tour guide yanked off the bus and questioned for 20 min. because they were suspicious of us Americans. She was white as a sheet when they finally released her. We were at an outdoor flea market in Moscow. Several of us had found some great stuff that we wanted to buy, but she stopped us and quickly herded us back into the bus. She said there were KGB watching us. We all were carrying rubles, but she said we couldn't risk being accused of using foreign currency. As soon as we boarded the bus, she was yanked off by KGB. She would not let us go back to that market later in the day when we asked her to.
I also saw one of our group questioned for a couple of hours for the same reason at our hotel. The only reason he escaped arrest was because he had been giving cigars to the guards at the hotel. For a usually cocky guy, he was pretty shaken up and said if he hadn't been sharing his cigars with the guards the last couple of days, he was sure he would have been arrested.
I approached a street artist *with rubles* to buy a painting. He refused to sell it to me. My friend and I left and we were walking through one of the underground tunnels in Moscow that cross under the street. We heard someone running toward us. Being both of us females, it was frightening because we were alone in the tunnel, but it turned out to be the guy running up to me with the painting in his hand. He said, "I couldn't sell it to you because there were KGB watching." I said, "well, I have rubles." He said that he just couldn't take any chances since I was an American.
I probably could remember some more stories if you want any more reasons. Ridiculous, huh!
@ Colorfulone, your sister was very lucky. I do have a love for the Russian people and I admire their adherence to their faith. I attended a service at a Russian Orthodox Church while I was there. Gorbachev was allowing the churches to reopen. I wanted so much to go into St. Basil's Cathedral, but it was being restored and had scaffolding all around it. Nobody was allowed in. .I believe that Gorbachev was a Christian because our Russian guide said he was, however, I can't think of Putin as Christian because of his past history.
Really, we've come to a place where Putin is a good guy and the KGB are missionaries just trying to do good deeds? People are truly living in an alternative universe. Putin is a good Christian? Since when is killing your political opponents a Christian act?
Stop watching television and go read books by respected authors.
Oh, that Putin. Such a nice wholesome boy. The part in the bible where it says it's totally okay to poison anyone who criticizes you is definitely my favourite part.
I do learn a lot here. I could have never have guessed that such attitudes existed.
A couple of commonly words used to describe Putin:
http://uk.businessinsider.com/list-of-p … ing-2016-3
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/30/book … wisha.html
A few of his quotes:
I don't read books by people who have betrayed the Motherland. Vladimir Putin
My notion of the KGB came from romantic spy stories. I was a pure and utterly successful product of Soviet patriotic education. Vladimir Putin
Stalin is the most popular figure in all of Russia. Vladimir Putin

Does anyone know what the Christ we are looking for is supposed to be like?
https://hubpages.com/religion-philosoph … ah-We-Seek tells us what to look for, where and about when he will be born, his ethnic, and some of the things he will do prior to and during his manifestation. Get your bible and read it along with what is said there and you will see most of organized Christianity, if not all of it, is a part of the anti-christ.
Somebody has perhaps had toooo many 'mushrooms '.
I know, Elijah, but tell that to the concrete thinkers and the Flat-Earthers.
When people are deaf how can they hear?
There were, and probably still is, some "flat earth" thinkers here in DC with whom I spoke and they appear to have changed their minds about it. Most of what they presented I showed then the error of. When one present the logic of the knowns into the concept of "I want this to be" people with open minds they wake up.
On the other hand, man-en-mass are NOT TO even entertain anything near truth, destiny decrees that, because everything happens in cycles and every life-force reincarnates eventually as one who is to awaken to truth but at a maximum of 10% at any world ending. Our, we who are awakening, concern should be "am I beyond judging enough to comprehend the purpose for being living thinking being" and be willing to share it with any others curious enough to enquire. Meanwhile, allow those who judge to continue for we were once in that category.
"Russia’s return to the Middle East has proved a stunning, sudden success—and a setback to American power and prestige. Up until recently the U.S. had no real diplomatic or military rival in the Middle East. Now, as Trump begins his presidency with promises of wiping out ISIS, there are Russian planes in the air and troops on the ground in Syria; battleships off the coast of Libya; and Moscow’s friends occupy—or are in line to occupy—presidential palaces from Tripoli to Damascus. Any time Trump makes a move in the Middle East, he’ll have to ask himself: What will Putin think of this? No other recent American president had that problem."

" MICHAEL FLYNN, RUSSIA AND A GRAND SCHEME TO BUILD NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS IN SAUDI ARABIA AND THE ARAB WORLD"
http://www.newsweek.com/flynn-russia-nu … ald-623396
*note: On February 13, 2017, Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor, following reporting on his communications with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak and that he misled the Vice President about it. Flynn's 24-day tenure as National Security Advisor was the shortest in the 63-year history of the office.
Scary, isn't it? Unless, of course, you view Putin as a lovely Christian, "a very honest man, he tells the truth, he works for the good of the people and country, and he will protect them with everything he has. He is a true leader!"
Of course, protecting his own people could mean screwing the U.S. and rest of the world.
"Flynn is a registered Democrat, ! having grown up in a "very strong Democratic family". However, he was a keynote speaker during the first night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, and he was a surrogate and top national security adviser for President Donald Trump.
During a July 10, 2016, interview on ABC News' This Week, when asked by host Martha Raddatz about the issue of abortion, Flynn stated, "women have to be able to choose." The next day, Flynn said on Fox News that he is a "pro-life Democrat".
Flynn has been a board member of ACT! for America, and sees the Muslim faith as one of the root causes of Islamist terrorism. He has described Islam as a political ideology and a cancer. He once tweeted that "fear of Muslims is RATIONAL" and included a video link claiming that Islam wants "80% of people enslaved or exterminated". Initially supportive of Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, Flynn later told Al Jazeera that a blanket ban was unworkable and has called instead for "vetting" of entrants from countries like Syria. Flynn has stated the U.S. "should extradite Fethullah Gülen" to Turkey and "work constructively with Russia" in Syria. In 2016, he said that he had personally seen photos of signs in the Southwest border area that were in Arabic to help Muslims entering the United States illegally. An officer of the National Border Patrol Council responded that he had never seen any signs delineating smuggling routes, let alone any in Arabic."
Flynn is not a "liberal" democrat I guess!
Color-ful-one is not a liberal either! Lol!
On this note, we can put this thread to rest.
What is she? A member of The People's Front?
No, I am not a Socialist Democratic Marxist.
I wonder if you could define that term for us.
"left-wing, progressive, leftist, labor, anti-corporate, antiglobalization (?) ; radical, revolutionary, militant; communist; lefty, red. ANTONYMS conservative.
left-winger, leftist, progressive, progressivist; radical, revolutionary; communist, Marxist; lefty, red. ANTONYMS conservative."
"of or relating to the Democratic Party."
"Marxism |ˈmärkˌsizəm| noun
the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, later developed by their followers to form the basis for the theory and practice of communism.
Central to Marxist theory is an explanation of social change in terms of economic factors, according to which the means of production provide the economic base, which influences or determines the political and ideological superstructure. Marx and Engels predicted the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism by the proletariat and the eventual attainment of a classless communist society."
The above is FROM on-line dictionary and thesaurus.
First, I wasn't asking you. Second, you had to go look that up?
Other Questions: What do Democrats want? What ideals do they want their party to represent? Why do they hate Trump so much.
Why do they also hate money?
To enrich their pockets while deceiving the pub lic that they are working for them. That is what politics is all about, making deceiving policies to keep the governed subservient to government while they fill their pockets with their taxes. That is one reason there are parties, to deceive the people for self-enrichment.
It can happen!
