  •  I've been thinking lately about where the most (12+ / 0-)

    appropriate place to draw the line regarding this sort of thing should be. At one level, I tend to retreat to the do unto others as you would have them do unto you, standard, which isn't always helpful.

    I expect that people will have political views as individuals and are entitled to express them, but when they make their business their mouthpiece they seem to me to have crossed a line.

    The Donald is a dicier matter because his obnoxious personality is his product. Still, during the past year he has become so associated with the insane birther issue. . .

      to help you grow from dicey on the Donald, to darned sure the Donald has crossed the line, I'd like to be a small part of that.

      First let's look at this:  "his obnoxious personality is his product."  Yes, I think that is true.  Some have a taste for the barf worthy, nothing to do about that.  

      But in the last year, the Donald has not just been "associated" with the birther issue, he has been a full blown birther, getting far more press for it than poor Orly Taitz.

      In addition to that, let's talk about his tweets post election.  You know, where he said revolution was necessary, and our democracy was a sham, because Obama had been re-elected.

      And oh yes, this guy is the same guy that Macy's thinks is just swell to bump against their photo shopped Kris Kringle image.  Merry, merry. Anything goes.

      EXCEPT, can you even imagine Macy's running with a far left icon in a similar way?!?!?!

      No. It wouldn't happen.  And these are the sleezy easy ways we Americans get shit shoved down our throats, IF, IF, IF, we aren't smart enough to say, STOP IT.
