@eye-of-horus saidThis would belong in the "Jokes" thread.
The Trump experience.
He's the only one telling the truth.
@whodey said2nd amendment kills about 300 people a day.
Well if it takes to long to search vehicles then shut it down!
I have come to the realization that the US is at war with Mexico. Think about it, 300 people a day die from drug, 90% of which, come across the border. In one year, that is more people that died in Vietnam, or did you not care about them either?
No, pretty much every American now knows someone personally wh ...[text shortened]... death penalty for anyone caught trying to smuggle drugs that are killing 300 people a day in the US.
@astalliana saidIf you are driving at anything less than +10 over the "speed limit" and I am
If you do this please tell me why. You're wrong in every situation, but I'm just curious. Yes I am mad after my drive home today.
@metal-brain saidDepends on the group.
I think I play chess better than the average person, but that is a relative thing. I don't think I am all that good compared to a lot of people on here so I'd give myself a 6 or 7.
I think my debating skills are better than that so I'll give myself a 9.
@philokalia saidI have been conducting myself with "respect". Look again at my posts on this thread.
If someone has a supernatural story about a demon, and is utterly sincere in their belief, and has no history of mental defect or anything along these lines...
How should they be engaged?
Would you be able to respect another person who had a story that you did not believe occurred? Because, in the past, we have seen you refuse to modify language even in the slightest to convey a modicum of respect to others.
@kazetnagorra saidThe US Constitution, written in 1787, three times mentions being a "citizen of the United States" as a requirement for various elected officials, mentions as a power of Congress "To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization" and establishes Federal judicial authority in legal disputes between "between a State and Citizens of another State;10 —between Citizens of different States, —between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects."
Yes, but again, what that meant back then was not what you would call "citizenship" now. Even a simple concept like a travel document was not widely used until the 20th Century. Borders were open to all but invading armies, and while people often identified with some kind of broader ethnic identity, you were the subject of whichever ruler happened to control the territor ...[text shortened]... mpaign to suppress regional cultures and languages, forging the French identity as we know it today.
@eye-of-horus saidIf you watched the Tom Cruise movie, American Pilot, about Barry Seal, a TWA commercial pilot, who ends up flying drugs for the Medellin Cartel, while the CIA turn a blind eye.
They know the drugs are there based on the law of averages. Not all vehicles will be searched so some drugs get through. You cant possibly search every vehicle.
They dont know the drugs are there they just assume that not all can be caught.
The wall would help i believe.
@kmax87 saidThis is not about a wall to keep undesirables out.
By admitting a concrete wall will not happen, is trump laying the groundwork for a final compromise virtual wall that is exactly like the current wall, part actual barrier, part natural barrier and part patrolled barrier.
I've never seen a person so naturally flip their position as Trump who has gone from a concrete wall to a steel wall to suggesting that the Steel barrier ...[text shortened]... and pretty much drawn him a pretty concise picture of how real professionals operate in Washington.
