They know. It is just that they are exactly that, base, and share the unAmerican sentiments that appall the rest of us. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and continue the movement that started with this midterm election. Resist, reunite, keep voting no matter how insignificant an election seems to be.

And look at how many of us, particularly how many young ones of us, came out to vote to repudiate the inexcusable embarrassment this person has caused all the decent people of this country. Pardoquilts, you are not the person who needs to apologize. It is the people who are undermining what has been building for 242 years to become a shining light among nations. Right now the bulb has dimmed, but people like you are helping retain the power to have it shine bright among other great nations to create a civilized and prosperous world where all people have opportunities to realize their dreams.

I can't even begin to find the words. To top it off, on the second day of ceremonies, when every other world leader walked a half mile as part of the proceedings, the current occupant of the White House took his limousine.

I apologize to the entire world for this pathetic excuse for a human who has no interest except in his own ego. I hope you remember that there are still good people in the U.S. who are working hard to change this situation.

It requires OPs to put her on ignore when she infests a topic.

That's about it, "a day late and a dollar short" is the way we used to describe that sort of thing.

On one of the threads today one of them sent off vitriol that I thought might dissolve my PC in which she made such a racially ugly comment about Mr. Obama, that it sent my understanding of why they are trumpists in that direction. There are people who apparently can't handle the idea that people of color are fellow human beings and many are highly educated, eloquent, admirable members of society. Look at the way three journalists who happen to be women of color continue to be trashed by Trump. Each one has been called stupid by him, each is so much smarter than he that his head must be spinning. And then there is the amazing Maxine Waters. Need I say more?

Isn't it astonishing how many Americans and people living in many other countries, can readily identify trump as a liar and a cheat and a thoroughly disgusting person, yet so many others see his bad behavior and pull the wool over their own eyes!? Do they not see him for what he is? How can they think he is a good president in spite of his many stupid blunders and falsehoods?

You still don't get it. It is a big world and what happens in one country can affect other countries for good or for ill. We are an interdependent world and the sooner everybody realizes it and starts to work cooperatively with one another the safer we will all be. Safer from environmental damage, safer from warmongers, among other pluses. Look at how the world was affected in the 1930's by a person who happened to be a German president. Plenty of people who weren't German, as well as so many who were were horribly affected by German politics at that time.

Beside which, this is an open International forum and people are entitled to their opinions wherever in the world they happen to live. It enriches every country to get a notion of how it is perceived by others. That is if the country wants to display strength and leadership.

Seeing how you are not an American, a legal US citizen & your life is in no way affected by MY PRESIDENT or my country's politics, your opinion means absolutely nothing, nada, nil, zilch, bubkes, zero to me. Worry about your own country & people & don't stick your nose in where it doesn't belong.

That's an idea. Give him a "time out" and ignore the tantrums. It works for two year olds most of the time.

Stay off the topics that offend you and stick to the ones about knitting (and crocheting, by the way). People like you have no right to tell the rest of us what to discuss in clearly titled topics. Good bye Ms. Bossy Pants.

You could have stopped at the "I am sick" and stopped shouting at people. You display a disgusting level of bigoted racism. You are not a true patriotic American embracing the tenets upon which this country was founded. Just build a wall around yourself if you don't like the progress in humanity this country is built on.

The thing is people like me love America and spent our lives being proud to be American. We applauded all the progress in working toward a level playing field for women, the disabled, all the members of different nationalities and ethnicities, a true land of opportunity that gave all our grandparents (or whatever generation of ancestor was the immigrant) opportunities for better lives. Now we see that all being stolen in the name of isolationism and xenophobia. We are sticking around and working our patriotic butts off to elect people who will help make the country worthy of national pride again.

NASTY PEOPLE. GROW UP. I NEVER liked Obama and I didn't go around calling him names. YOU DON'T LIKE AMERICA LEAVE! THE PLANCES FLY OUT EVERY DAY.

My senior center gives hats and scarves we knit and crochet to the area mobile soup kitchen. That is staffed by charitable volunteers, and they distribute the items directly to soup kitchen clients.

Another group in the area makes American Girl doll clothes and donates clothed 18" dolls to the county office that oversees foster child care. That is done for Christmas; another group does something for the boys in county foster care.

Then there are the chemo caps that are delivered to oncology departments of major hospitals in the area and purple baby hats that are delivered to the nearest office of "Click for Babies", the shaken baby awareness organization.

We hope the work goes where it is intended, and our coordinators have developed contacts where that is most likely to happen.

Hildy I am assuming you mean the items you have made by hand. I have found that giving the box to the Fire Dept. has worked really well. They will take it to shelters, etc. that we cannot have access to; therefore, the items go to the cause.

We the tax payers have paid more for his travel expenses in under two years than probably for any of his predecessors' full 8 year terms, mostly for golfing trips. And when it is business, he doesn't follow through. And still his sniveling snowflake sycophant groupies keep supporting him. What are they, the zombie cadets?

Trump's rain decision casts dark clouds over his Paris trip

PARIS -- President Donald Trump's decision to cancel his visit to an American military cemetery outside of Paris threatened to overshadow his trip here, as government officials, historians, and fellow Republicans hammered him for more than 24 hours for that move.

"President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didn't bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow -- & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn't stop them & it shouldn't have stopped an American president," wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam War.

The people I put on "ignore" are the ones who post not-nice negative comments. It is unfortunate the tone of the forum is pulled down by people who can't find anything good to say about those with whom they disagree.

There are a few in particular who persist in making vile lying comments about people they choose to bully. Yes, I have them on ignore.

There are an overwhelming majority of people on KP who are interesting, pleasant, and just plain nice. I look at a lot of pictures of beautiful projects and read topics in GCC that are interesting. I don't necessarily comment, but my day is uplifted when, for example, I see funny memes and cartoons particularly about knitting. My skills have improved by reading hints or following links on techniques or specific to projects I am working on. It makes me happy if I am able to contribute to someone else's quest for knowledge about a project or technique. I am on line friends with a number of talented, creative, accomplished people, some of whose resumes have me in awe.

Ignore saves me wasting time slogging past inane and negative postings as I look at the positive ones that are interesting to me.

Don't feel bad about being put on ignore because putting you on ignore is actually their loss. You can't post a nice, positive comment on their topic, so it is their loss. Too bad the people who use "ignore" don't realize that.

So does one liar's lies make another liars lies okay? Are you suggesting they balance one another out? What about a liar who has told more lies than all his living predecessors combined?
