Trump doing what Obama didn't do

Finally, I'm understanding the mindset of radical leftist. You're upset because President Trump has accomplished in one year everything Obama was not able to accomplish in eight years.

Growing economy, Obama didn't come close. U.S. companies coming back to America, didn't happen under Obama. Obama kicking the can down the road on North Korea, President Trump is facing the issues. Tax breaks for Americans, Obama didn't even try. Obama chose to regulate American businesses, President Trump is ending the regulations and look what the market has done in the last year. President Trump will be building a wall on our southern border while Obama put up a welcome sign to all illegal aliens. Obama pass the buck on DACA while President Trump is trying to deal with it (while the Democrats sat on their hands during the State of the Union Address, at least those that showed up).

And I love the fact that President Trump is building up the military, and the fact that Fox News is upsetting so many of you. And because you believe in the fake news that's spewed from all those other network news channels, you have shown your inability to think for yourself.

Christian support of Trump baffling

Michael Gerson's column (Billy Graham-Richard Nixon) alluded to an ongoing Christian-political oxymoron that has bedeviled me for some time. "Sunday best Christians" who are willing to rationalize and forgive the conduct of their own political party while assuming a perverse motive is behind the actions of their opponents.

These Chrinos (Christian in name only) are completely missing the spirit of Christianity. (Judgment much?) We can't claim to be "aghast" at one side and remain "agape" at the other over similar worldly actions, i.e. abortion vs. "shock and awe" style pre-emptory airstrikes. 

My opinion, the hippies subscribed to a more real Christian doctrine than the church does. I know they were co-opted by sex and drugs but their "free love" message is exactly what Christ gave us hope for. The Biblical Mary and Martha story explains that while Martha took on the physical (necessary) work, Mary had chosen the "better part" — love. Religion still remains a Martha not able to reconcile liberalism with their hierarchical doctrines which are completely man-made. In fact, the word "liberal" is offensive to a Chrino and they use it derogatorily.
