    Wow. Just joined this forum with the hopes it would be a place for civil discussion with intelligent, concerned folks interested in better understanding all sides of an issue and first thing I see is a post calling the president of the United States a S&$thead. Very disappointing. Just a quick tip; you will never convince others of your point of view by insulting and name calling. People are much more responsive when you show attempt respect and understanding. And that goes for the President as well.

    And you write this in support of a "president" who got where he is by insulting and name calling...

    No sir, I write in support of civil, intelligent discussion. It appears that you neglect to acknowledge the last sentence of my post.

    As to why the President (no need for quotes here as he was duly elected) got to where he is, is debatable. While it can certainly be argued that President Trump has been insulting to some, that is not necessarily the reason for his election victory.

    You're likely to be in for a disappointing time unless you widen your expections to include bigotry, blinkered minds, bullshit and Walter-Mittyism...
    The poster reserves the right to amend or completely change any opinions he has posted at any time meanwhile, still waiting for the whip hand that Enoch forecast...

    Your defeatist outlook is disappointing. Unfortunately defeatist should probably be replaced with realistic although in my opinion both are accurate. I fear no problems will ever be solved with our current state of discourse. Until we can begin to respect each other's points of view, we are doomed.
