More from retired Navy Admiral & Navy Seal McRaven/ Business Insider

Quote:


The retired US Navy Adm. William McRaven, a Navy SEAL who oversaw the raid that took out al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, gave a bleak assessment of President Donald Trump and alleged the commander in chief was gutting the country of the "nation's principles."
In his fiercest condemnation against the president yet, McRaven recounted in a New York Times opinion column a military ceremony he recently attended at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where he reflected upon the thousands of US service members who marched on the parade field before him.
McRaven pointed out what he said were examples of the US neglecting its duty to be the "the protectors of the less fortunate" — including Trump's recent decision to withdraw troops from Syria as Turkish-backed militants wage war against the once US-backed Kurdish militia.
McRaven added that Trump "is wrong" to think empathy is "unimportant" or shows "weakness."

Man, I don't think so. That look on his face definitely conveys intent to me.

I think so too. He looks irritated.

Also bloated (eating shit will do that to you) and like he hasn't slept in a week.

The best way (maybe) to know is other vids where he flips his hair back - does he use his pointer, index, or two plus fingers.

Not that i'm gonna do that! I spend as little time as possible looking at his miserable mug!

You’re probably right. We should always assume he’s doing the worst possible thing to maximize whatever belittlement possible to anyone who isn’t him.

Seriously. What a horrible, horrible man.

[QUOTE=dazzledbylight;8313618] got it


That's what i was trying to say. self <-----

i was suddenly like : "do they use the word 'federal' up there?'

Good Luck!
i know Trudeau isn't ideal- but you don't want The Conservatives taking over! [

Indeed! Not one candidate is ideal but The conservatives are horrible so I feel that voting for someone other than JT will be a wasted vote.

I’m pretty sure in Canada it’s complex enough such that certain areas can comfortably vote for neither without impact to the result, but Canucks correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes but voting for other parties other than the two major parties can lead to a minority government ( which looks like this will be the case for us this time as both liberals and conservatives are tied at around 30 % if polls are correct). Minority governments are more unstable and not much gets done. Usually coalitions form between parties when this happens but it’s not ideal. A minority government also doesn’t last very long.

the GOP needs to understand that we cannot have a free and fair election if Donald Trump is on the ticket. what he will be impeached over is directly related to the 2020 election, and has bearing on the 2016.

I mean, fair. But this needs to be clearly stated, repeatedly, and should be used to bring the entire ship down.

Long thread but feel it’s a good one. Shows all the players involved, the media , candidates running, Trump, and voters haven’t learned a thing from 2016

But the media bears most of the blame. They are supposed to provide us with the proper facts of every story.
