      The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” as Hardesty recounted.

      “The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” said Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat.

      Here’s what he would have seen. Trump crowing, “they’ll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don’t support me, you’re going to be so goddamn poor.”

      To most of America, the comments went unnoticed. Instead, the nation was gripped after the rally by the moment when a “send her back” chant broke out as Trump went after Somali-born Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, an American citizen. But some Trump supporters were more fixated on the casual use of the word “goddamn” — an off-limits term for many Christians — not to mention the numerous other profanities laced throughout the rest of the speech.

      Getting upset about some words. Like the time the clown when I delivered the local fishwrap said he didn’t want to hear me cussing and then asked what my problem was.

      I replied, “It’s my birthday and I’m so fornicating happy I could just defecate!”

      Took him a few seconds to figure out what I just said.

      I don't waste my time teaching pigs to sing.

        French = good
        Anglo Saxon = bad.

        fornicating = fuck
        defecate = shit

        Never mind the words mean the same thing. Just different languages.


        We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

        If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.

        Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…

      Separating kids from their families and caging them indefinitely is OK, (Christians at that). As no doubt Jesus would do, but don’t use the Lord’s name in vain.
