Omg.... what am i doing with my life.
I notice when replying to a post you very rarely offer any sort of rational counter argument, instead you insult the poster or make some statement that has nothing to do with the original post and involves some third person.

"all of you are old people" I have news for you, Trump is 70 years old!

How could people vote for such an old person?

I've just pressed the mag-ig button again. Qualified opinion pro or contra I can cope with, unsubstantiated bollocks, not so much.

Where did I say that? I asked you a simple question- have you ever lived in France and/or studied French history, culture and politics? So, have you?

You mentionned Somalians and other ethnic groups which are hardly representative of Muslims in France- and we are talking about France here, arent' we, re Lepen?

As a result of the videos, PewDiePie was praised on neo-Nazi and white supremacist websites.

The Daily Stormer, which is described as the ‘top hate site in America’ by the Southern Poverty Law Centre, even went as far as to change its slogan to ‘The world’s #1 PewDiePie fansite’.

It went on to celebrate the YouTuber for ‘making the masses comfortable with our ideas’.

No i have never lived in France, neither have i enrolled in politics classes of any kind in any country.

I however have done something that you obviously have not, i have heard what Le Pen has said ENTIRELY unedited and "uncensored".... and i have also read a lot about the Quran, about Mohammed and about different cults within the muslim world, and i have come to the conclusion that those terrorist groups are just vainilla fundamentalists.... all of those terrorists groups ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and many of the "extremists" are just really into Islam.

I have heard with my own two ears, not through CNN(continuously proven to be liers), WSJ(proven to be sensationalists trying to make some MONEH without caring about the truth); i have heard the support that 16-20 year old muslims raised and born in switzerland have for such organizations...

It is the reality, so keep looking at your polls, meanwhile terrorist attacks will keep happening like today in London, and you will keep denying the connection between the ideology and the "terrorists".

EDIT; oh i have also seen multiple beheading videos, just ask and i will provide you with all that SWEEEEEET islamic honey... but dont blame me if the images are imposible to erase from your head.

EDIT; this is not only about being "right" or better or worse than others, this is about the worth of human lives.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Beheadings in France- we are still talking about France and Lepen or have we moved to Saudi all of a sudden. Islam takes many forms and guises- depending on cultural and ethnic regionalism. You can't paint of the French muslims with your Saudi or Pakistani brush.

What are the things Le Pen is planning to do? And what do you believe is the connection between that, and everything that i am saying?


And stop painting all muslims in France with the "fully integrated" brush.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Donald Trump has a follower on me, and i will be paying attention... not to the liers but to the independent journalists and citizen journalists.... i will also base my opinions on interviews and video evidence.

You can keep your old Corporate Journalism that thrives on ad revenue.

From where do you think "the independent journalists and citizen journalists" get their income to support their life styles?
None of them are independent!
They all have a target audience with a set of political views to which they tailor their product.
I find this more dangerous than the main stream media who tend to target their products along consumer lines.

Have you thought about basing your opinions on what politicians actually deliver instead of parroting opinions from others?

They get their money from donations, and some of them even participate in public debates and speaks... which means they get paid by universities and associations... have you ever heard about twitch.tv? They stream live, and if you want to post a comment you gotta make a donation...

Dont get fooled tho, they earn much less than any of you, i believe that even I out earn some of them.

When getting on an Airplane is an absolute must, they use "gofundme" campaigns.... one of them even went to North Korea, and was streaming live......AND GOT CAUGHT and the stream was cut for a couple of hours... thankfully he was only made to delete some Fotos.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Weird world!
Monday the Republicans on the Intelligence were giving FBI Comey a hard time for not tracking down who leaked classified information to the Press about Flynn's telephone conversation recording.

Now they are doing the same leaking thing

Quote:
Republican claims Trump intercepted by spy agencies

Electronic surveillance of foreign citizens may have incidentally monitored aides

Devin Nunes, a California congressman who chairs the House intelligence committee, on Wednesday briefed Mr Trump about dozens of intelligence reports that he said included the name of Trump transition officials, including possibly the president.

Big wow! A guy I know (also from my home town) owns a travel company that have been running golf tours to NK for a good few years now. He also did the travel arrangements for Top Gear when they went to Chernobyl. He's taking a group to NK next month for the Kim Il Sung Birthday Tour.

Now...back to Trump. Still no tweet r.e. London.
