I checked. The USA Today poll did have Trump at 49% approval.
Awesome. I checked too. The title of this debate (and the linked article) is, "President Trump Scores Highest USA Approval Rating Ever", which is fake news. The 49 percent figure which you plucked out while ignoring all the other claims is no doubt because it is the only one which is true.
Attacking the reporter of a left wing media poll's results
Can you read? You linked an extreme right fake news platform.
In review, The Daily Caller is a strongly right leaning news and opinion website that has been involved with publishing controversial and false stories. For example, they routinely publish misleading or false information regarding climate change that goes against the consensus of science. The Daily Caller has also published articles by Jason Kessler, a white supremacist who organized a rally of hundreds of white nationalists in Charlottesville. They subsequently scrubbed those articles after the Charlottesville vehicular homicide incident.
Does that mean the USA Today poll did or didn’t show a 49% approval?
Do you source extreme far right websites because the normal ones agree with what they say? That would be a bit stupid, wouldn't it? Why not just source the normal ones and avoid the inevitable allegations of fascism?
Here's what PlannedParenthood says about emergency contraception:
Here is what the Family Research Council says:
"between 2011-2017 Planned Parenthood gave out an average of 1.79 million emergency contraception kits annually. Emergency contraception, such as Plan B, can kill a human embryo if fertilization has already occurred."
Can you tell which one cares more about providing it and which cares more about blocking it?
"Gay marriage had never been mandated by Big Brother, and now that activists succeeded in FORCING every State to change their marriage laws"
Ah, now I see why you are upset - you think the government is going to force YOU to get gay married.
It actually just allows people who WANT to get married to do so because there is no reason not to. (You think it's icky isn't a good enough reason)
Most of Americans did not support Gay marriage
Incorrect. The court decision was in June 2015.
As of May 2015:
Favor or Strongly Favor same-sex marriage: 57%
Oppose or Strongly Oppose: 39%
"States deciding on their own marriage laws"
Is a terrible idea. if a parent takes a child from a state that recognizes a marriage to one that doesn't, can the other parent enforce parental rights? (based on an actual case) Do they pay federal taxes as a married couple? Can a person work for the federal government and have their spouse be on their health insurance if the federal government doesn't recognize their marriage? There are lots of reasons why doing it by state is a bad idea and no good reason to block federal recognition.
There is nothing shocking about anything the Left does.
These are the same people who want to FORCE EVERY Public school to allow boys, who don't like their gender, to compete in girl's sports.
These are the same radicals who want to end the Hyde Amendment and force ALL Americans to pay to kill babies.
I mean COME ON! There is nothing that could surprise us about those in the Democrat Party.
That's easy for ME. There isn't a religion I support. I accept them all as necessary for some, I reject much of their rhetoric, all of their mythology. There are good people on both (all) sides …. (to paraphrase another idiot ;-), but, we'd be better of without them. All of them inject into society their share of …. outlaws. ;-)
I was making the argument that since complex systems are so difficult to understand, while you may think your intervention would be better you have no way to know if it actually would have been.
Of course no one can tell the future. But we are in the position of looking back. I am recommending only that, were it me, I would have included the things Time has shown to be beneficial, and I would omit things time has shown to be detrimental.
You can kill someone despite loving them on some level.
I don’t know how you regard love. I view it as the highest degree of valuation, where value is anything for which you would take action to gain or maintain. To kill someone is to value them less than the thing for which you killed them. This indicates something less than the highest degree of valuation. Thus, a person may feel a sense of love for someone that they kill, but this sense is an internal contradiction.
Not sure exactly what you're saying here but I'm referring to the fact that Islam is so totalitarian (e.g. pray 5 times a day) and the fact that it calls for theocracy. This means anything similar to western civilization that might spring out of an area with such an ideology would be despite it, not because of it.
My autocorrect didn’t assist me in conveying my message. There are a number of ways to view the teachings of Islam. Some of those perspectives are not particularly totalitarian. Some approaches are conducive to western civilization. If those approaches disregard some teaching in favor of some other, I don’t view them as any less Muslim.
He said he didn't "come to abolish the Law or the Prophets". Nonetheless, Christianity was not just for the Jewish state of Israel (see below). Linking back to the idea that God punished whole cities, since he didn't destroy every single city that wasn't Jewish it still doesn't follow that everywhere should be compelled to follow OT law. Further, these cities were either Jewish (under his theocratic rule) or completely debauched (e.g. Sodom). Note also that in Sodom God even said he would spare it if Abraham could find even 10 righteous people there.
I’m sorry, but I don’t see how this addresses what I said. Jesus maintained the validity of the OT.
Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Interestingly, he didn't mention to teach gentiles the OT here, only his teachings.
He mentioned “teaching them to observe all that I commanded you”. Maintaining the old law was among his teachings. Even so, I don’t see Christianity as less Socialistic than Judaism, but possibly more so. I don’t see it in conflict with Judaism as it pertains to general outlook.

Like I said, you will never give Trump credit for the good compassionate things he does
You are talking about a man who has literally built his entire life around his own self-interests. He was sued by his own building contractors (who ironically were immigrants) because they did a ton of work for him and he didn't pay them. You might as well swap the word Trump for Hitler, because your statement isn't going to get any less ludicrous.
