China is not going to invade Taiwan for the 10,000th time.
China has been building their army for years and laying the political groundwork for invasion of Taiwan.

You can say the same as to why we eat KFC for Xmas....or why we celebrate halloween and valentines day with chocolates. All marketing to make profit.
No, unlike VD, Xmas and modern day Halloween celebrations, osech-ryouri has been around for over 1000 years.

We live together or die apart.
If Democracy doesn't stand for democracy, democracy dies. We must stand by Taiwan.

Wake up people. A Chinese invasion of Taiwan would lead to a collapse of the global semiconductor chip supply chain and control of chip production by the CCP.
We cannot let economic pressures allow a nation to own the people of another sovereign nation.
If the price of telling China that they don't get to own Taiwan is the collapse of the semiconductor chain, then that's the price. We will build other supply lines.

Put your hand up if you are seeking a resolution?
War, if we have to.
This one is on China. They do not own Taiwan.

This happened because of pelosis visit.
This happened because China is an authoritarian regime who think they own another people, like possessions or slaves. China has an unreasonable stance towards Taiwan. We should not start war, but we should go on treating Taiwan as a country and if China wants to start war, then the world should war with China.

The swamp has never been measured by length of time it is measured by misdeeds such as all the ones I listed.
The swamp as described by the Trump people during election time was the establishment. Bolton and Pompeo are establishment.

if all else fails and any of our adversaries threaten us, try to strike or attack us and our allies, of course we should go to war.
Unfortunately we had none of those excuses for Iraq. We just wanted someone to pay for 9-11, and in our bloodlust, Saddam made a convenient (but wrong) target.
We're still paying for that hubris. I'd love it if we didn't make that mistake again.

The poll notes that more than 7 in 10 Americans polled in each political group, Republican, Democrat and independent, believe in a deep state.
Yeah, but you also have to consider that roughly 70% of us Americans are idiots.

The article says she got arrested for "obscenity" which means, I guess, that she sold an uncensored image of her private parts. Which is a crime (stupid indeed, but the law is like this).
Sad that showing something that roughly 50% of the world has, is considered obscene.
That idea seems obscene.

Yes, please keep believing this is the reason. So what is the plan to get these ignorant voters to vote the way they were "supposed to" next time? Just cant believe that voters wouldnt do exactly what they are told by liberals and the deep state, how dare they?
Can someone tell me if this post is in irony, or is a serious post? It sure seems like someone being stupid on purpose, but I am too new to tell.

He deserved the prize because he was VOTED into office by the American people who were sick of Bush?
I don't really think he deserved a peace prize, due to his usage of drones that killed thousands of innocents.
But I think the reason he got it was because after the disaster that Bush created in the ME through his lies about WMDs, Obama went around and really tried to clean up the image of America around the world, and bring people together. That is much more peaceful than the antagonistic speech of the current administration.

You start by complaining about anyone appointed no matter what.
That's American politics. The Republicans were doing the same thing during the last administration. This behavior has just continued with the current administration.
It's nothing for anyone to get angry over anymore, as both sides do it. It's now the status quo.

Although I despise Trump, he is correct that China has been stealing technology from other countries. I'm not sure that a trade war is the best way to deal with that issue, but it's an issue that should be dealt with.

Obama won his Nobel because he was very good at starting wars and destroying the Middle East and creating IS.
Obama didn't start any wars, and the middle east was destroyed by the Bush administration, which resulted in the creation of ISIS.

This exemplifies everything that's wrong with Trump supporters. They themselves admit they have no desire to make the US a better country; they simply want to cause maximum suffering to their fellow Americans who happen to have different views. Truly a nihilistic cult of destruction lacking any sort of moral compass.
Trolls literally won the whitehouse.
That's not to say all Trump voters were trolls, many were good people who made a bad decision, when faced with two bad decisions.

No, the appointment signals the disappearance of the last traces of any sanity within the White House.
I don't think that the white house has had any sanity during this administration. It's been an absolute mess.
But that said, I think we need to give up on the idea of anything signaling the end of anything with the Trump administration. It's shown itself to be extremely resilient to all sorts of issues that would bring down other administrations. We just need to keep on being persistent with pointing out the administration's faults, but give up on speculation that anything will end it. The only thing that looks to be able to end it are elections. Midterms in November will help put a reign on some of the administrations power, and in two years, we can get a new president. In the meantime, we just have to be persistent in pointing out the fallacies of this administration, so that the voters don't forget just how bad Trump's administration is.

USA: Time to end the tariffs.
Unfortunately a trade war is unlikely to end that easily.

I wonder how China will respond. They could screw the American economy if they wanted. They also own so much American debt - will they stop lending money to America, or call in their debts?
This could mess with the world economy really.

I knew this was fake news. Now they’re admitting that trump has heart disease and they ‘left out’ the test that found it in the report.
The president is fat and slothenly. He’s on his deathbed. This heart disease proves it. Anyone who was stupid enough to believe that he really got an excellent bill of health must be blind, you can see how fat he is just looking at him. The whole report can’t be trusted.

Takeda i dont have to prove it, its already out there. You dont write an acquittal on someone months before the investigation is done on someone.
I agree, just like it's already out there that the president is a rapist. You don't claim that you can just 'grab women by the...' if you aren't a rapists.
The rapist in chief. It's out there. We don't have to prove it.

Who says that the loser of an election is entitled to an equal deal or that they have any say in what is “acceptable” or not for them?
No one. So why are the Republicans having so much troubles keeping the government running?

President Trump is very far from being a racists
The man refused to rent to people based on the colour of their skin. That is textbook racial discrimination. It's undeniable that he is a racist. The only question according to some posters here is whether or not such racism is justified.

Bitcoin evangelists always say that the government should stay out of their business and has no reason to regulate cryptocurrencies
There is no way to regulate cryptocurrencies. There is no controlling institution to be able to apply any regulation. Only the exchanges can be regulated, not the currency itself.
Especially when we now see people mortgaging their homes to invest in Bitcoin.
Is anyone actually doing that? I haven't seen it anywhere.
Way too risky of an 'investment' to risk your first home on. Maybe if they were mortgaging a secondary home or something.

It wasn’t about color.
It was literally about colour. He was denying all black people based on their being black.
You have stated that this type of racial discrimination is ok though:
Many of them were dealing, as far as dangerous, that would depend, but profiling we did, the police did, the store owners did, the crime rate for Blacks was so high back then, so yes, we did profile, maybe you don’t think it’s right
So the discussion isn't whether not it was racism - you've agreed it was, and we all agree it was. The issue now is whether racism is justified.
The declaration of independence says it's not. But some people place their political team over one of our most important documents.

Who’s the racist?
Anyone who won't rent to people based on the colour of their skin, rather than their personal background. And anyone who thinks that is ok.
