Putting Trump and the word morals in the same sentence is a joke, right? He has the morals of an alley cat. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, and we are losing it bit by bit every day.

Let's talk about morals and what America is really all about! President Trump is a true, blue American and has American values and I'd rather have that than all the tax breaks you could give me.! Freedom to worship, freedom period is everything!!!!!!!!!!!! Our history is everything and people are destroying it. Wake up America before it's all gone! My hat is off to President Trump and I wish I could get to him to tell him so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeannette Griffin - How is it being a party of hate to ask for the truth? Where is ALL our taxpayer money GOING??

"Trump’s border wall is (still) not being built.

President Trump has said some variation of “the wall is being built — it’s going up rapidly” more than 190 times since taking office. He doubled down again after the Defense Department announced it would be reprogramming $3.6 billion in funds Congress appropriated for military projects to fund 175 miles of fencing and barriers along the southern border.

Trump told reporters, “We’re building very large sections of wall. ... We’re building different sections simultaneously. And we think by the end of next year — which will be sometime right after the election, actually — but we think we’re going to have close to 500 miles of wall which will be complete.”

Except, that isn’t the case. So far, only 64 miles of new or replacement fencing have been built under this administration. Trump wants to build around 500 miles by the end of 2020, but only 110 to 165 miles of that would be new fencing or barriers where none existed before.

But that is still not Trump’s promised concrete wall. Plus, it only happens if he wins an ongoing court battle over whether he can redirect the funds Congress already appropriated.

All of that is a long way of saying: Despite what the president says or what you may have heard, the border wall has not been built. Replacement barriers and fencing, yes. The wall, no."

Someone just told me that I had been called out.
Tony, you are right. I am starting to sound like you! So let me express my deepest apology to all you bitter angry name calling freaks. Oops, I might be a little dark myself.
Still laughing and wishing you peace

LOLOL, Mrs. Glascock says "Not you or any Trump hater will ever convince me to become a bitter angry name calling freak." What was that comment then if not becoming a bitter angry name calling freak?

Why doesn't Trump try a little kindness? Get over it! What, the fact that you are the one that can't get over the fact that the POTUS is mentally ill and you voted for him.

Why would anyone want to "....actually win someone over to the dark side."? I prefer the light where the cockroaches or glascocks AREN'T trying to hide.
August 22, 2019 at 8:27 pm
absolutely agree with you mrs. glascock. so glad trump is there to defend us from the evil perpetrators of the wretched bowling green massacre
Bettye Glascock
August 22, 2019 at 8:16 pm
Linda, yes I made a typo.
And you can't read. "A few sane people in this county." Not country.
And Jesus is never old news.
Those lines you quoted came from talk show host Wayne Root. President Trump re-tweeted Roots message and thanked him for his kind words. I get it, you hate President Trump. Get over it! Not you or any Trump hater will ever convince me to become a bitter angry name calling freak. Try a little kindness. You might actually win someone over to the dark side.
Good bye to all and still wishing you peace.

armynurse70- Forget Jesus, he's old news, didn't you hear that Trump is the "chosen one", the "second coming of God" and the "King of all Jews"???? Keep up please!

Bettye - MEGA hat?? What does that stand for MEGA-millions? A few sane people in this country? Are you counting the guy who thinks he is the second coming of God?
Bettye Glascock
August 19, 2019 at 3:38 am
It's nice to know there are still a few sane people in this county.
Yeah, I'm still wearing my MEGA hat. I am still laughing about how angry and crazy some of you get. Like that stupid attack on my name.
Just so you know, if you look up your own names you will find that there were some rapscallions in your family tree as well. And just for the record, that is not my family name. I come from a long line of McClanahans and Greens. Don't you just bet there were some "Leprechauns" in my family tree. Sl'an agat.
Wishing you peace
August 18, 2019 at 3:39 pm
Mark House - You state what would happen if Jesus came back. Ok, What if Jesus did come back. What if he tried entering any other country on this planet? Some of those countries wouldn't bother to lock him up, they would shoot him, behead him, torture him and also lock him up. The US policies have not changed in many years. Trump did not open up detention centers at the border. That was a Democrat thing, yet you have this mindset that they were magically built within the last 2 1/2 years. Where did you come to this conclusion? Oh, because mainstream media has put that thought in your mind. The Democrats had 8 years of Obama to do something about illegal immigration. They did nothing but separate families. They continue to do nothing. Even worse, they condemn any companies attempting to assist. You can't complain about conditions in a detention center and then turn around and refuse to make things better. It doesn't work that way. The Anti-Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong with you and you truly need to wake up and see what the Democratic Party has been doing this entire time.
August 18, 2019 at 3:28 pm
With zero doubt in my mind. Considering there were so many who never considered Trump to be a contender before, they never voted for him. Many of those now see what he is capable of getting done. The Democrats will lose simply because they are so anti-Trump. You have to have a realistic vision for this country other than getting Trump out of office. Free stuff is not a vision, it's buying votes because they are desperate.
August 16, 2019 at 7:45 pm
It’s just beyond my comprehension that anybody with a brain would still support him
August 16, 2019 at 7:43 pm
Yes and any normal person knows this to be a fact.
Cammie Rodgers
August 16, 2019 at 3:23 pm
All Trump has is anger and name calling, it's his forte.
August 13, 2019 at 10:01 am
You prove my point. Thank you.
Bettye Glascock
August 13, 2019 at 9:42 am
I never assume anything. All Trump haters have is anger and name calling. That is not the way to get your point across.
Intelligent people will just ignore you.
Wishing you peace.
August 13, 2019 at 8:40 am
My point was that trumpers always assume the trump haters are Democrats. I have no problem with name calling when it comes to the likes of trump and his idiot supporters. There are no valid excuses anymore for supporting him.
Bettye Glascock
August 13, 2019 at 7:50 am
So... who is calling people names?
Maybe you should read what you write before you post.
Wishing you peace.

Just keep wearing the red hat. Makes it easy to tell who the morons are.
August 12, 2019 at 4:51 pm
Interesting how people are automatically called a dumbo rat if they express distaste for trump. I think if you are an intelligent person, Republican or Democrat, you would have enough evidence to support the idea that trump is a narcissistic dangerous fool. Again, all I’m saying is that if after the last two years you still support this excrement you might be more in the camp of stupid blind idiots.

Better, when they call us racist they just show their stupidity. I'm insulated from their insults and especially the term racist. They always run away when a conservative gets in their face. They are cowards. That's why Antifa wear mask over their face. I'll gladly show my face when I pummel an Antifa member into submission.

July 25, 2019 at 2:34 pm
Workhardgetahead, have you noticed how "Dumbocrats" as you put it, attack on a person level and everyone that doesn't agree with them is a racist. Racism is a serious matter and should not be used as a weapon. I think the word "racist" is the new F-word. And they are so angry. Maybe they just need a big hug from a conservative.
Wishing you peace.
July 25, 2019 at 11:07 am
I get a kick of reading g this comments by these mamby pamby dumbocrats. They need to go find their safe spaces and pet their puppies. They should be more outraged by their racist governor instead of Trump who has managed to govern successfully with an onslaught of dumbocratic hogwash. Yes, I will be voting for the President again and any dumbocrat who wants to challenge me on it, fo for it. Trump runs circles around the disastrous Obama who was a complete joke of a President.

"THE BIG IDEA: Mitch McConnell told President Trump privately last month that no politician has ever lost an election for spending more money. That mind-set – caring more about the next election than the next generation – helps explain why the Senate majority leader and the president endorsed a budget deal last night, which still needs to pass Congress, that will raise spending limits by $320 billion while suspending the federal debt ceiling until after both men’s 2020 reelection fights. It also illustrates how hollow so much of the rhetoric from McConnell, Trump and other Republicans was during Barack Obama's presidency.

Discretionary spending is growing at a faster clip under Trump than Obama. The budget deficit and the national debt are growing at even more distressing rates, however, because the Republican tax cuts have reduced revenue even more starkly than the dire forecasts. The Trump administration estimates the deficit this fiscal year will top $1 trillion, up from $779 billion last year. It was $587 billion in 2016, Obama’s last full year in office. The national debt was $19 trillion when Trump took power and surpassed $22 trillion this month. Even with rock-bottom interest rates, the federal government will pay out more than $350 billion this year to service that debt."

Cammie, thank you for bringing this horrific info to my attention.
I had no idea that all Glascocks were murderers and slave owners.
OMG!!! Those horrible people are everywhere!
Beware Cammie, they are all over Fauguier County. In fact Virginia is full of them. I also know some of them out in California. Now, thanks to you, I understand why California has gone to hell in a hand basket.
Cammie, because we are surrounded by those evil murders, do you think we should take up arms against them?
Can you actually believe I paid good money to use that name?
Well I need to get back to my party.
Still wishing you peace.

"The Glasscock's with whatever variation in spelling are all descended from an ancient Anglo - Saxon family in England called Glascocke.
The family was ruined when in the 3rd generation another Thomas committed a murder and fled the colony with his eldest son Gregory. Thomas was never seen again although Gregory returned and all Thomas's land and possessions were confiscated by the crown. All the land belonging to him and slaves and property were seized.
Two grandsons of Gregory decided to try to improve their lot and crossed the Monhagela River into what is now SW PA but at that time was still part of VA and part of Monongallia County later. In 1781 the extended Mason - Dixon Line left this area in PA. Peter settled in Bullskin Run in what is now Fayette County PA but later moved to Ohio then Kentucky. His son Lemuel was convicted of 2nd degree murder but only served a few years."

Nice family you were either born into or married into Bettye. Murderers and slave owners. You must be so proud! Now I get why you support Drumpf.

"Trump promised during his 2016 campaign to eliminate the government’s debt after eight years in office, a pledge top advisers later said was a mistake. But Trump has not only failed to eliminate the $19 trillion in debt he inherited when he was sworn in; he also authorized multiple agreements that made the debt much larger.

His aides have proposed budget cuts numerous times during his first term in office, only to have Trump back away and pursue spending increases instead. These spending increases, combined with the 2017 tax cut law, have added $3 trillion to the debt during Trump’s first term in office.

The U.S. government spends more money than it brings in through revenue, and that gap is referred to as the “deficit.” The government borrows money to cover this gap, and it does this by issuing debt."

"Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry."

Some Republicans have said Trump’s refusal, so far, to pursue big changes to entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security have made it nearly impossible for him to fix the budget."

Since when was Social Security an entitlement. People have paid into SS their whole working lives, it's their money not an entitlement. Watch out Senior Citizens they are coming after you now, no matter the color of your skin.

Bettye Glascock - You and I both know that if Jesus showed up on our borders right this moment Trump would have him put in a holding cell. President Donald Trump on Monday escalated his attacks on the caravan of migrants making their way to the United States from Honduras, calling the situation a national emergency and declaring without evidence that “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in.” What IF Jesus where in that group??

1. Middle Eastern.
2. Doesn't speak English.
3. Poor.
4. No passport or papers or ID.
5. Brown-skinned and brown eyes.
6. Dressed in robe and sandals with long hair.

I certainly didn't have anything to do with that, it was Pontius Pilot and the Jews with the help of Judas. I get it now why you are a Trump cult follower, have to keep the illusion going, no matter the cost and damage to young minds.

If you really want Peace then please stop supporting someone who is destroying it on a daily basis, here and overseas. Do you really think Trump cares about Bettye Glascock? All he cares about is that you paid your taxes so he can spend them. Good day Madam!

Ms. Rodgers, I am very informed of who Donald Trump is. I have never voted for a president that I didn't research thoroughly. But what I have found is that no man (or woman) is without fault. I don't for one minute think Mr. Trump is perfect. No man I ever voted for or researched was without ugly baggage.
The only man we ever had on this earth that was perfect, we nailed Him to a cross.
I simply responded to the poll question and got attacked for my conservative views. I will vote for Mr. Trump because he has put America first not because he is without personal fault. All presidents have had personal fault.
As I have said before, I respect your opinion, I just simply don't agree with you. And I would never assume that you or anyone that has commented here is small town ignorant, uneducated, or otherwise uninformed. Just because I don't agree with everything posted here doesn't make me any of those labels either.
Wishing you peace.

Ms. Glascock - I'm not to going to ask where you found your information as it is not correct. If we are talking about anything it is not politics but MORAL character, of which Trump has none.

Here's an article from PBS that says otherwise to your that Trump is innocent. We all know that is not the legitimate POTUS.

All the assault allegations against Donald Trump, recapped
Politics Oct 14, 2016 5:33 PM EDT — Updated on Jun 21, 2019 2:01 PM EDT
Sixteen women have come forward with allegations against President Donald Trump, each accusing him of inappropriate conduct. The most recent, from writer and columnist E. Jean Carroll, appeared in NY Magazine on Friday.

The women’s charges range from unwanted touches and aggressive, sudden kissing to the latest accusation against Trump — that he attacked a woman in a dressing room and forced his penis inside her. Donald Trump, his campaign and the Trump White House have insisted all of the stories are fabricated and politically motivated.

So far:

16 women have accused Donald Trump of various forms of sexual assault, including one accusation of rape and another, in which the accuser has not used the word “rape” but whose description meets the legal definition of rape. This figure includes standing accusations from both before and after the release of the Access Hollywood tape on October 7, 2016.
Four other women have publicly said Mr. Trump walked in on them and other pageant contestants while they were undressing. Buzzfeed reports another three women have confirmed the pageant stories but did not want their names used.
The alleged incidents range from the early 1980s to 2013.
Donald Trump has adamantly denied all of the stories and accuses the women of being political tools who were trying to undermine either his candidacy or presidency.

Here is what we know about the accusations of assault against Donald Trump, including the date of the alleged assault. These are standing allegations of assault that have not been disavowed by the alleged victim.

Kristin Anderson – Early 1990s. Story in the Washington Post on October 14, 2016.
Anderson says she was in a Manhattan bar with friends when the person next to her reached up her skirt and touched her vagina through her underwear. She says she turned and recognized the person as Donald Trump.

E. Jean Carroll – late 1995 or early 1996. Story in NY Magazine June 21 and expected in upcoming book.
Carroll describes running into Trump in a department store, where she says he recognized her for her widely-read advice column. Carroll says they went into a dressing room after Trump asked for her advice on a present – lingerie – for another woman. Inside, she alleges that he shoved her against a wall, “forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me.” A senior White House official issued a statement to NY Magazine calling the accusation, “a completely false and unrealistic story.”

Rachel Crooks – 2005. Story in The New York Times on October 12, 2016.
A 22-year-old receptionist at the time, Crooks said Trump gave her an unwanted kiss on the mouth after meeting him in 2005.

“Jane Doe” aka “Katie Johnson” – 1994. Lawsuit filed June 2016, refiled October 2016 as reported by Buzzfeed and others, then dropped in November 2016.
Jane Doe is an unnamed plaintiff, who has also gone by “Katie Johnson” in legal papers. She claims she was repeatedly raped by Trump and Jeffery Epstein at Epstein’s New York City apartment in 1994, when she was 13 years old. A witness, also given a pseudonym — “Tiffany Doe” — said she recruited “Jane Doe” and others. Doe, using the name “Johnson,” gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which she said she did not know who Trump was at the time of the alleged attack but identified him later when she saw him on television. It is not known why she withdrew the lawsuit. She has not spoken publicly or withdrawn her rape allegation since then.

Jessica Drake – 2006. Story made public at a news conference October 22, 2016.
While working as an adult film actress, Drake says Trump invited her to the room where he was staying in Lake Tahoe. In the room, she says he grabbed, hugged and kissed her and two other women who accompanied her without permission. Later, she alleges that Trump called her and pressed her to return to his room, offering $10,000 at one point. Drake says she declined.

Jill Harth – 1992-1993. Story in the The New York Times on October 9, 2016..........."

It goes on and on and on.

Ms. Rodgers, You know that if there had been any proof that this story was true, Donald Trump would not have become president. Hillary Clinton would have used this to her advantage as she should. I have been around a long time and every time someone runs for high office, people come out and make accusations they can't prove. Jane Doe dropped the case against Mr. Trump because she had not one shred of evidence against him.
This woman is no different than the woman that made up stories about Judge Kavanaugh. She had no proof and no one could even remember her.
Jane Doe claimed she saw Mr. Trump on the Apprentice and decided that he was the man that had raped her as a child. Why didn't she bring the case against him then?
Ms. Rodgers, I know that these horrible acts happen every day all day long. And I certainly would not ever condone that behavior from anyone! But I will never label someone guilty until they have been proven guilty in a court of law.
But you sent this to me as if it was a proven truth.
Wishing you peace
