Re: Сделаем Америку снова великой! Trump - Russia megathread

There's an interesting thing going on. Barr made statements about things. Then he released a report that wasn't redacted all that much. And the report that wasn't redacted all that much contradicted some of the statements Barr made. Pretty strange. Surely he must've known that what he was going to r...

Re: Сделаем Америку снова великой! Trump - Russia megathread

Different subject but no I didn't. The Black nut jobs instigated the situation. But that doesn't change the fact that the Covington kids were messing with the old Native American guy. That's the takeaway. You’ve been shown to be incorrect on this from every angle. No I haven't. But we're swerving o...

Re: Things that be all racist n' sheit

I'm glad Kate Smith died long ago so she doesn't have to deal with this crap. This is another example of spearing people because they just did what they were asked to do during the time they were living in.

One thing I'll give Barr is that he left enough un-redacted to provide sufficient basis for some independent assessment of the report. I am not going to read the 400 page report. But as I watch quotes from it reported my prediction is that people who think this is good for the President are sadly m...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

Then support ranked choice or cumulative voting I'd be fine with ranked choice in primaries, but I don't think it would make any difference in the actual Presidential election. . I think the last Presidential election is an example of one in which it could have made a difference. Trump did not get ...

Re: 2020 Democratic Nomination Process Mega-thread

I once posted Living Color's "Cult of Personality" video here in commenting on the Obama phenomenon. But the Obama thing was not as hateful as the Trump thing. What Trump does with illegal immigrants, asylum seekers, and Muslims is similar to what Hitler did with the Jews. There's nothing...

Die thread Die. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk It's not going to die. At this point it's pretty clear that the report documents a lot of bad behavior by the President. Even with respect to the "collusion" thing. It's like I suspected the situation is. There was not sufficient evidence...

I must admit I'd have to refresh my memory on what it takes to do a Constitutional Amendment. I think I remember that it starts off either with Congress or States developing a supermajority to put it up for ratification then a supermajority of States has to ratify it. But even if I'm right about tha...

Relax, Sparky. JSO just said he sees similarities right before he admits it wouldn't happen here. It's not a direct comparison...and there are some similarities from a personality and cult-like following standpoint. And yet he's blind to the same similarities with Obamabots. And apparently so are y...

Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

The rate of growth in revenue during the Reagan years was lower than it was during the Carter years. That's bears upon the fallacy of the Reagan tax cuts thing. Yes, revenues typically grow as the population grows and GDP grows. The question is if something like Reagan's tax cuts slows or increases...

There is no way Obama crowds were mind numbed zombies like Trump crowds are. Anybody who has watched Trump rallies knows that. By "scapegoating" I mean zeroing in on things like illegal immigrants and muslims. With Hitler it was the Jews. All Obama's said about the economy stuff is that t...

Here's where you are wrong. Hitler blamed the Jews for losing the war, bread lines, poor economy, everything that was going wrong in the country. Trump hasn't blamed illegal immigrants for that ****.

Do you think it implausible that we WOULD be seeing people rounded up and put into ghettos or camps if Trump could do whatever he wants? You mean the way FDR did with the Japanese Americans (when the same protections against it were in place)? Yes, I think it is implausible and it is pure speculati...
