"I was recently invited to be a guest on the Cop Block Radio show. I was told it was to debate someone about my support for Donald Trump, but the conversation ended up turning to the Black Lives Matter movement and demographic disparities in crime and police encounters. Unsurprisingly, most of the panel members were outright convinced that we simply live under a white supremacist criminal justice system, and that police were just out hunting down black people for sport. However, as I've discussed repeatedly, that is simply not the case. I'm all for curbing police abuse, even ending their profession as we know it. But we can't do that by lying about reality." - Christopher Cantwell

I have seen some conservative Christian critiques of Trump. I actually agree with most of what they say. I think most of Trump’s proposals are terrible. However, he is certainly better on foreign policy than any other Republican candidate (or Democrat), including the ones who have dropped out. The problem with most of these Trump critiques is that they 1. presuppose that Christians should waste their time voting in the first place and 2. recommend Ted Cruz the bloodthirsty warmonger. I recommend neither. I think that many conservatives have voted, and will vote, for Trump because it is the best way they know of to give the middle finger to the evil GOP. - Laurence M. VancePerhaps that's why Trump has done so well with Evangelicals.

I pretty much agree with this:
I used to have no problem with #BlackLivesMatter as a slogan, even though the movement was ignorant, built on lies, poorly organized, and ineffective. It didn't seem problematic to me that people said that black lives matter, though. That's changed, and I would place the blame squarely on the constant, unending obsession with defending the slogan. It's obvious that it's a failed movement, and now even its label is toxic, so it should be abandoned for the racist drivel that it is. When you spend half your time just defending a stupid bumper sticker idea (as I've repeatedly seen BLM activists do on TV and in print), it's time to move on and try again. -Bret AlanOh, and All Lives Matter! There, I've just proven my racism to the loony left.

Full disclosure, I own Wendy's stock. I first became aware of the fast food chain back in 1975, when I guess they really started to roll out nationally. I was just a kid at the time, but Wendy's felt new and different (in spite of the "old fashioned" labeling and inside theme of the stores) from other, more familiar fast food "restaurants" such as the (even 40 years ago) ubiquitous McDonald's. One thing the review in the video fails to mention is that one other thing setting apart this fish sandwich from others is the type of fish, cod rather than pollock (though Alaskan pollack is still a member of the cod family) as used in the Filet-o-Fish and other fast food fried fish-between-buns concoctions. In spite of this mostly unenthusiastic review, I think I'll try this. It's been available before, but I guess I missed it then. Oh, and it's tartar sauce, not mayo, you dummy!
