    Of the 20 threads on the front page of Civics:
    - eight are explicitly about Trump and/or his impeachment[1]
    - seven are not directly about Trump, but he's mentioned in the opening post anyway[2]
    - two more aren't about Trump but he still gets frequent mentions[3], despite the supposed thread topic (Brexit / taxing churches)

    Only three of the twenty threads do not quickly descend into discussions of Trump[4], and one of those is about how to deal with the whistleblower who exposed him. Even the thread about a massacre in Mexico begins with asking what Trump will do about it.

    When Trump is the basis or referent for 80% of the threads here and rapidly becomes the topic of half the others, there is really no grounds for complaining about TDS. You might as well change the Civics tagline to "Donald duke" and move the thread on China to World History because that's a better fit.

    There is, of course, a significant difference between discussing a topic that touches on the subject of Trump directly or tangentially, and obsessively denigrating and condemning the man on a daily basis the way ox does. But I'm sure you know that.

    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    wow
    Thanks for preserving that, Cow Poke.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    You do raise some legitimate issues, Jim, but even a blind hog...



    Absolutely false. And this kind of crap is exactly why you earn the "TDS" label. It is NOT true that I ignore "the problems" - I simply don't go wall-to-wall railing against Trump day in and day out...



    In your mind, with your absolute obsession, I can see why you would believe that.



    I'm going to be polite, and not accuse you of being a liar, because I believe that in your obsession with Trump, you actually believe that in your head.



    Jim, at this point, you're hardly the one to determine what is "objective".

    Here are some things for you to totally ignore about I believe....

    • Trump could not have become President without God allowing it. God is sovereign.
    • Am I saying God "selected" Trump? Absolutely no way.
    • It is a Biblical mandate for me to pray for those in authority over us -- I do, every day, often more than a couple times a day.
    • There is an incredible unified effort among the liberals to get rid of Trump - I'm anxious for this to get into the open - open hearings, public testimony - and for the process to play out. They don't need me spending every waking moment repeating every bit of gossip, rumor, innuendo, accusation.... it's all out there, Jim.


    So, look what's happening --- because I'm not as obsessed with Trump as you are, I'm a bad guy.

    That's truly sad.
    The fact that you always defend Trump, other than saying you think he's a jackass, that you always post links either supporting Trump or denigrating those supporting the allegations against him, makes the above post moot. You have always defended Trump in this way and yet continue to deny support for Trump. We're just wondering why?
