Is this going to be 'one of those threads' Mr. Rorie?

I hear an awful lot about CNN, MSNBC, CBS and who they're in the tank for,
but I don't hear anything about ABC. I find that interesting. I must brush up on my who-owns-who chart.

How much TV do you watch, Americans?

Okay, Mr. Rorie. Let me tell you what this thread is not.
It's not an ABC news sharing hub for people who watch like hawks for defamatory or negative Trump articles with buzzword headlines.

Oh hey, all ye Americans! I'm an American, too. Another question for you! (Didn't think you'd see another question here, huh? Yeah, I know.)
Has the Trump presidency made an impact on your life?

As for myself, I can think of only one instance thus far. The Forest Service refused to issue cord tags for chopping firewood. Something about regulations.
So now we're a bit behind schedule.

Yes. Yes it has.

Thanks to the asinine stuff that Trumplethinskin and his sycophants are throwing gleefully about, there is now a very, very real, non-hyperbolic chance that my family, many close friends and I will have severely shortened lifespans.

I had just managed to get rid of my blasé "so what if I die?" attitude (lack of health care for life-altering medical crises does that to a person). Now it's back, and as I've always thought, no one should have to have that attitude.

Probably because you are all at greater risk of heart attacks from worrying too much.

When Obama was in office all of the conservatives almost died worrying that he would cause the end of the world. Now the left is doing the same over Trump.

Everything will go on just the same as before. We all just need to live our lives... that's what I'm trying to do. I'm done spewing vitriol over politics.

(P. S. Trumplethinskin... LOLOLOL perfect)


Anyway, I don't want this thread to be political. I started it for cultural discussion.

How much TV do I watch? Lol... zero. I don't watch any TV at all... except for very specific things here and there such as parades and horse races. I find my life is better when I don't spend large amounts of time sitting in front of a glowing box.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

Considering I live in a state that just made many horrendous cuts to insurance as now they're allowed to, and considering I have several health issues requiring constant care that is now not covered...can't be hopeful, nosirree.

But yes, let us cease the political chatter.

I'm not a TV person either tbh. Too boring!

Where Am I supposed to whinge about Republicans yet alone Trump now?, I don't want to start another thread, if so I did so this would set a dangerous precedent and others would copy cat, I need to maintain my right to criticize Trump, I disagree with him, I even disagree with him more now that he's president, He is doing irreparable damage to the U.S & now that he's provoking North Korea, He won't know what hit him if Kim-Jong Um strikes!

I am not saying that you're trying to take away my right to free speech mate, what I'm trying to say is, If this thread not the right place, where am I supposed to go?
