Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Interesting. I never had seen actual numbers before. I didn't realize his inheritance was that big. I was thinking say $20 million. Anyway, there's plenty of rich people who have lost their total inheritance. I'm no more worried about Trump having his finger on the button than I was with Bush 43. No...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Ok, so if we changed the statement to say, "The mainstream media is the enemy of the people", would that be more palatable?

That's how I took the statement in the first place, but I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

What was Trump's net worth when he was 20 years old? What is his net worth now? I don't know the numbers, but I'm guessing that his net worth now is quite a bit higher than when he was 20 years old, even though he started from a high number to begin with. Just based on those numbers, whatever they m...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

And I would say that you are naive. Do you think the press is performing this vital function just from the goodness of their heart? (dual)No, not at all. Although I do think there is no shortage of journalists who are passionate about journalism. They don't say to themselves, "I'd like to go into t...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

The press are the tools of big business. I really don't understand how you can't see that the press are the enemy of the people. If force-feeding us propaganda lies doesn't make them our enemy, then I don't know what would. I am not speaking sarcastically, ironically, metaphorically, or anything ot...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

its also unbecoming that the media has managed to achieve a negative reporting rate of 92% regarding the president compared to a 0.7% rate of reporting on the economy (which seems to be doing well)... trump may be the least presidential president with the how and why of his twitter postings, but th...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I think we should tap the brakes, too, if you mean get more selective. @kriegsspiel: more WALL or no? Well sure, get more selective about the ones that are let in legally. And enforce border security better to reduce illegal immigration. If that means a wall, fine. And/or other measures. I really d...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Two votes for more wall, then. ... Why can't some of these not-so-great countries pull themselves up by their bootstraps and solve some of their own problems themselves and become great on their own, rather than sending all their best people to live here? It’s more of a case of the people sending t...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Agreed, good fences make good neighbors. As soon as all the rich Democrat politicians don't see the cost-benefit to a big wall around their house, I might be more sympathetic to their arguments. Not sure about anyone else on this site, but I am definitely not pro-immigration. We have plenty of human...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shooting

I really don't get this argument that since white people took over say America (or New Zealand or wherever) from the Indians hundreds of years ago that now the white people are morally obligated to let somebody else into this country. What about the Indians? Do you think they were the first ones her...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shooting

When immigration happens at high rates, especially from cultures that are much different from the host, then it starts to feel like invasion. If immigration were reduced to a level where new immigrants could assimilate, then tragedies like this would be less common. What are you trying to say? Clip...
