I’m “very busy” - US Commander in Chief “
Just saw a report that not only did our current Commander in Chief not visit Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day but he has yet to visit American Troops in a War Zone. They showed his previous response why he has yet to visit the troops- I’m “very busy “. Which makes me recall his comments on our previous Commander in Chief playing golf too much. He touted “I won’t have time to play golf”. Currently Trump has had time to golf about 150 times about 2-3 times the rate that Obama did. I’m not against any President playing golf or clearing brush on the ranch if they’re doing there job. But playing golf 150 times at $80 million of taxpayers expense is quite extreme while not finding time for a single visit to troops you command in a war zone in almost 2 years.
I don’t know maybe he’ll get a doctor’s note excusing him from visits because of bone spurs like he did during the draft.

In case you missed this:
You obviously made this post and two others, just to get a rise out of members. We have been down this road before. These kinds of post do nothing but cause members to have dislike for others that do not have the same political leaning as they do, it causes hate and discontent and I believe we have enough of that in this world, as it is. We all have different views and making a post like this one will not change anyone's mind. After having discussions like this one with Larry before, I could see no good was coming from it, so I will not go down that path again. This after all is a fishing website and getting this far off that path, even on the Off Topic board, is not the direction we need to be going.

Sounds like I hit a nerve with you personally. I apologize as that was not my intent. I don’t make or keep friends based on political party or who they voted for. I feel sorry for people that live in a small world like that. My best friend for over 30 years voted for Trump and is still a supporter overall. He’s never liked everything about Trump just as he’s never blindly supported any politician. We frequently discuss politics. Just yesterday we were discussing the idiotic House of Saud thinking no one would notice when an American resident of Turkish descent born in Saudi Arabia disappeared after entering the Saud Embassy in Turkey. And that neither the Turks or the Americans would care. We both agreed with Trump’s initial assessment that it was the “worst cover up” in history even if Trump has since waffled on the issue. We both have realized for decades that the House of Saud May be friends with the Bush Family and now the Trump Family but they aren’t what we consider friends of America. There are fair more negative comments on this site about Democrats than Republicans While it doesn’t bother me in the least, I do question your objectivity but I don’t somehow dislike you because of my opinion is different than yours on a single issue. Have a good day.

No, not at all, this post was moved to this board because it is the proper board for political post. You can look at the rules on the Utah Off Topic board and see they are not allowed there. As far as my comments they were simply how I feel and why I do not want to comment about this or other political post. You can look at similar post on this board and see how out of hand they can get. There is no need for you to apologize either, you were just stating your feeling, as was I in my reply to you. If you will notice, I have not made any recent comments about about these issues because I have decided BFT is not the place for them, that was not the case in the past when I was commenting about them. It is not because my views have changed but simply because I do not think this is the proper place to post about them. I hope you can understand how what I said in my previous reply can happen, even if you don't feel that way.

I’m on much more intermittently so I didn’t realize the change in policy. I’ll stick more to fishing and skip my occasional venting on what seems extreme even if almost all politicians seem nuts to me at least part of the time.
