      One symbol says it all! Our President and FLOTUS are just incredible people that love our country and every single one of us. Seeing that #MAGA on the board made me absolutely loose it. I couldn’t stop the tears from flowing.

      The NFL is going to DIE this weekend when their players decide to take a knee again! Our President will post the comments of the young man that was shot in his leg that said he would never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake his hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!

      Thank you God from the bottom of my heart for the gift you bestowed at this time on our country!

        Taking Chance

        Somehow my wife and I stumbled upon this movie last weekend…should be watched by every citizen in this great country, and every NFL player should watch it 10 times.

        • Kevin Bacon and his wife Kiera Sedgwick are both flaming liberals (not to comment on the movie). Funny how liberals always make movies with guns, movies about our service members, movies about police, and movies about Nancy Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Chris Kyle, etc because they have no heroes worth portraying.

            Sean Penn is the only liberal I actively boycott — the only liberal that if he is in the movie I won’t go no matter how badly I want to see it or how good the reviews. But more and more I find myself disinterested in seeing politicians acting in film — Bacon, Sedgwick, Clooney, Blanchette, Matt Damon, Chris Pine and the Star Trek Crew (once a dedicated Trekkie). My guess is Ho’wood is going to get NFLed if it already hasn’t been — no meanness – no active boycott — just a bunch of turned off people who have better things to do with their time than to be propagandized by things that are supposed to be entertaining. It isn’t a boycott so much as a bye-cott.

              this is important because boycotts are one thing and they do work but im expecting the nfl thing to become what hollywood has … a slowly fading pastime replaced by things that give people real joy.. i cant tell you how many people are saying they are really enjoying their weekends without the nfl … some women in my office saying how nice it is to have a sunday where they arent in bad moods because the team lost .. i told them what will shock you the most is how much you wont miss it and when the nfl decides to change you wont care at that point because you will have found better things to do

            • I’m a movie fan and in my early 20’s I went to the movies regularly. I used to check reviews of new movies every week and I went to see movies in the movie theater quite often. Nowadays I don’t even check out the new releases lists. There’s nothing worth watching being released by the big Hollywood studios. They don’t released anything original, intelligent and entertaining anymore. All they do are remakes, reboots, and seriously unfunny “comedies” of women behaving badly. Superhero movies are actually the only ones I sometimes go to see in movie theaters. I go to see them as an old Marvel Comics fan and I have some friends who love the comics too, so it’s nice to go together to see them. But even Marvel movies are not enough to drag me to the movies most of the time. Too many of them are not true to the comics and that annoys me tremendously. Black Kingpin in Daredevil was fine, because I couldn’t think of a white actor who was massive enough in a muscular way to fit the role. But putting a black guy into Asgard, that got to be too ridiculously and obviously token casting. Asgard is where the Viking gods live and there were no black people in Scandinavia in the Viking times. And I am still incapable of looking at Samuel L. Jackson and think straight away “Nick Fury”. Every time I see him, I still think “Who’s this character?” before I remember. He doesn’t look anything like Nick Fury in the comics and it annoys me. I hate it how the Marvel movies are getting ruined by “diversity” demands. OK, it’s not as bad as putting diversity into historical dramas, but d*mmit, I want to be able to recognize the characters based on the comics.

              So although I agree with your boycott views, I’m already so deep into the byebye Hollywood phase that I don’t need to boycott.

        Our President has had to deal with major disasters, fake news, lies, smears, Little Rocket Man, Big Panda/Fake Dragon, the Russia BS, NFL taking a knee, Antifa, Mueller’s ridiculous ‘investigation’, and this massacre in such a short time. Every single one of these events makes the base stronger and it grows the base. We are winning on so many levels it’s mind boggling. And God is just getting started.

      Tragic events in our country weigh heavily upon us, but our President and First Lady bring such comfort to *all of us. Extraordinary, really, what a difference they make. My heartache is eased by their simple acts of compassion, kindness and fearlessness, as well as their willingness to enter the world of everyday people. It’s like the White House has become a House of the People because they take it with them wherever they go. Definitely “government of the people, by the people and FOR the people” every single day. It is so easy to love them from the bottoms of our hearts.

    Noting how NFL players and coaches are starting to weigh in on guuuuuunnnnnn viollllllence and the need for gun control. Aside from the issue about disarming some of their feral players off-season it serves as a great opportunity to distract the public’s limited attention from their players unpatriotic and childish behaviors to their new enemy, Trump. Let’s see how the NFL picks up this ball and runs with it.

    • This video really touched me; I’m not the crying type like many here, but I just choked up on this video..just so touching, how much the people really want their pictures taken with POTUS and FLOTUS, just the feeling of compassion and kindness. Really sincerely touching.
      I don’t know if you caught the video in Puerto Rico, when POTUS was getting ready for first press conference/meeting with governor, FEMA, all the military support, etc and he went off to shake hands and told Melania to just stay. Well sitting next to Melania was the governor’s wife and the mike was still on. The governor’s wife said to Melania, “You don’t know how much this means to us..” then she kind of stuttered and said something like oh, of course you do. Then Melania said, “But, I really wanted to come, you know….” I couldn’t hear the rest. I found that so very sweet also.

      The people of this country just open up to them…so I think the vibe is pretty warm.

    It felt so good to read all of these positive comments here this morning. So full of love and admiration for our President Trump and his beautiful FLOTUS Melania Trump.

    It makes me feel good, feel right perched on one of our many tree branches. To celebrate the kindliness and compassion of our couple in the WH and what they stand for, MAGA.

    I know in my heart and in my mind I’m on the right side of the argument. I see far too much hate and ignorance on the other to be wrong. And I’m standing with so many great people who know right from wrong.

    It’s been really hard for me these past few days feeling so much pain and knowing of all the loss on that fateful day. It’s been hard seeing the people of Puerto Rico suffer and not too long ago seeing our Floridians, Texans and Georgians along with others struggling through the same. Let’s not forget to throw the disgusting anti-American behavior of the NFL. So yeah, it’s been a real rough September and on.

    However, I am greatly comforted knowing not only that we have the best of the best in WH in so many ways, but I am greatly comforted knowing I stand with so many Patriotic Americans.

    Thank you Treepers for keeping me straight and moving forward, I don’t think I would’ve done so well without all of you.

    From Bill O’Reilly
    The former Fox News host also noted that he spoke with a “local security guy” who “came up with something that I had never even thought about” for another response to the Las Vegas massacre.

    “Every police department in America, when they have an event of say more than two or three thousand people, has to have SWAT teams posted around the event. Las Vegas PD did not,” O’Reilly said. “So they had 25,000 people standing in what was pretty much an empty lot, but they had no SWAT team. If they had had that, they could have immediately started shooting at the sniper.”

    “Then I learned that at Yankee Stadium during the ball games, the NYPD posts snipers in the stadium high above the game,” he added. “And so, to me, that was the two things that I learned, two things that could really save lives if we, you know, make the FBI be more efficient and get the word out to local PDs, you’ve got something like this? You’ve got to have SWAT snipers available.”

Also, the father said that they met POTUS’s cook outside the hospital before they met POTUS and the cook told them, you will see, he’s really a genuine person…and he was.

    Thomas Gunderson’s FB page is really great too. It is really cool. That is where I read about the retired Marine Taylor Winston who during the Vegas attack took a construction truck, stealing it, then loaded it up with the wounded making multiple trips to the hospital. He did all that before the rescue squads got there. I read about Mr. Winston on Thomas Gunderson’s FB page. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004133597768

    We have such ragweed here in Virginia, I have been tearing up A LOT! Our President and First Lady are so wonderful.

    I am wondering now, it seems to me that the prudent thing to do for these outdoor musical venues, would be to have SWAT snipers on the ready in case another LOON decides to act out with multiple weaponry.
