Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

The fault is with the parents not the USA's immigration laws, which are similar to those of any other country. The latter part of your statement is not accurate. Immigration laws vary from country to country quite dramatically. This is not to say the US laws are good, bad or anything else. But acqu...

Re: Some 2020 General Election Polls

Punishment has two purposes: justice and deterrence. If we let the DACA kids become citizens, then there is no deterrence effect. More Mexicans will sneak over with their babies because they will think that very likely in another 30 years we will have another amnesty event. If we don't do amnesty an...

Re: A place to talk about random things....

Here's an interesting thought about cultural appropriation from Reed's article: "I reckon black folks ought to be a little quieter. Since they didn’t invent writing, or reading, or ‘rithmetic or electricity or clothes or pretty much anything, then any time they use them things they’re doing Cultural...

Re: Biden/Harris Discussion

I'm sorry, I find a lot of the discussion about the candidates here very juvenile, focusing on speech patterns and likability, etc. as if this was an election for junior high class president. Who cares if the guy or gal is likable? What are the policies they stand for? Are they for bigger government...

Re: Resolved: that President Trump has praiseworthy accomplishments

I don't know much about the details, but isn't there something praiseworthy in him standing up to China and not allowing them so freely to steal our trade secrets, etc.?

Re: Joe Biden wins coveted endorsement

If the KKK endorses Trump, it will be front page news on all media. This communist endorsement of Biden won't be reported at all. Check into history. I bet that communists have slaughtered thousands of times more innocent people than the KKK. I'm not supporting the KKK by the way. Just pointing out ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Trump supporters have 90 days to turn things around. Good luck with that. Scaring suburbanites that they are going to have low income housing in their neighborhoods is a great way to move votes to Trump. Outright racism? No. Covert racism, pretty sure. Oh, puhleeze. People work hard so they can buy...

Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

Is it in bad taste to refer to things like this as the Brazilification of the USA?

Maybe it's less offensive if we just call it the shithole-country-ification of the USA.

Re: "What is your political orientation" Poll

The guy's making $25M a year, and he wants us poor schmucks to feel sorry for him? Does he feel sorry for me that I will never be able to afford a yacht? At some point, people just have to grow up and decide that they don't care what anyone thinks about them and that they are going to work hard and ...

Re: "What is your political orientation" Poll

The founding fathers and stock of this country were white. People automatically favor other people who look like themselves, starting first with their own family members and then radiating outward from there. So yes white people treat each other better than they treat darker people. If you go to Afr...

Re: My Wife’s Jewelry Is Getting Really Expensive!

I was talking to my 84-year-old mother last night. She said that when she was in college, she used to clean houses at $1 per hour to make money. We started wondering how much $1 back then is worth today. We calculated that at an average inflation rate of 3%, $1 in the 1950s should be worth about $8 ...

Abolish ICE

Abolish DHS

That's going to end well. We already don't have enough jobs for our low-skilled workers. Let's just let a whole bunch more into our country. What could go wrong?
