A new surprising poll from The Military Times surveying active-duty service members shows that about 50% of respondents have an unfavorable view of President Donald Trump.
The new poll was conducted from October 23 to December 2, showing that about 50% of troops said they had an unfavorable view of Trump while about 42% approve of the president. The poll surveyed 1,630 active-duty Military Times subscribers.
I've seen some decent articles coming out of Military Times, it would make sense that their subscribers who may appreciate objectivity would lean somewhat left.
Angry 16 YO Swede needs to calm down and not advocate for a firing squad to mow down people she disagrees with. She is putting her foot in her own mouth, and is becoming just like those whom she despises.
The teenage climate activist made the comment while addressing a Fridays For Future protest in Turin, Italy.
In English the phrase is associated with execution by firing squad, but Ms Thunberg said it had a different meaning in her native language Swedish.
"That's what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language," she added on Saturday.
Ms Thunberg was speaking in Turin after attending the UN climate summit COP25 in the Spanish capital Madrid.

She said she feared the summit alone would not lead to adequate climate action, and that activists should continue to take world leaders to task.
"World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities, but we have to make sure they cannot do that," she said.
"We will make sure that we put them against the wall, and they will have to do their job to protect our futures."
Her excuse that "is not translated to another language well" is bullshit, because if she really meant for the translation in her head to mean "to hold people accountable", she should have typed that in her Twitter, and not relied on whatever Google Translator she was using.
If she's so smart, she should have known WTF "putting people against the wall" means. That little bitch is going to destroy this world. She takes "boats" everywhere, because she thinks flying on a jet plane kills the environment.
OMG how daft is this little bitch! It boggles the adult mind.
I'm guessing there's some interview where she said putting people against the wall or something ? (the bbc link doesn't work for me). Let's say it's not a "rock and a hard place" mis-translation and she literally meant lining up people for a firing squad....who the fuck cares what a stupid thing a 16 year old said? Look at the language you're using on a teenager cuz she triggered you. You realize how many little shits I've paid no heed to?
