Innocent people don't run from the police.
Irrelevant. That's the court's job, not the police. Copper had no business shooting a fleeing suspect. Pretty stupid.
And the ak-47? What business did the cop have violating department policy? Obviously a thug cop, no respect for rule of law.
Nothing is wrong with protesting
Then why do right wingers, such as yourself, so often trash protesters? Why call them bums, etc.?
Yes, entirely. This is precisely what you and the far right do. 'I hate the kkk, but Antifa is just as bad.' Yeah. Right.

eah, a filthy rich bum with loads of cash, property
As rich as he is, you'd think he could pay for security/travel etc. Why is it that taxpayers have to pay $65 million for the tub of lard to play on work time?
Here's a list
A list from where? The Island packet? It'd be well appreciated if you'd actually link to what you are posting instead of putting it out there as if you wrote it. So, I am assuming you had a hard time coming up with things Trump worked with congress to accomplish, am I correct?
Let's have a look at that list:
from saving us billions of dollars by canceling stupid and exorbitant pacts,
Backing out of the Paris Accord is nothing to be prove of. Rather shameful. Looking at Harvey and Irma, and this is only a taste of what's to come.
to rolling back ridiculous regulations,
to causing the Supreme Court to once again have a constitutional conscience,
Nonsense about "constitutional conscience" aside, fair I suppose. Although it only takes a simple majority, not terribly difficult to do.
to approving the Keystone pipeline,
Didn't approve the Keystone pipeline. He did issue an executive order to resume construction on the pipeline.
to cutting $22 million from the White House payroll, to promoting “buy and hire American,”
Again, this is an executive order. So again, Bass, what did Trump do to work with congress to get anything passed? Never has happened, has it?
0 ( +1 / -1 )
Yeah, nice try. The man hasn't been on the course for awhile
On track for 340 golf outings over 4 years. That's a round of golf every four days. What a bum.
Then list them. Oh yeah, you can't.
he doesn't make or legislate laws,
True, but they absolutely help congress pass laws, meeting with congresspeople who are on the fence. Donny is also part of the reason congress couldn't pass their healthcare bill.

Trump is doing a really good job of making Repubs take public positions prior to the election on issues they have been trying to screw him on.
Yes, a very good job playing golf. Tell me, what has Donny actually worked with congress to get done? ;)

I'm sorry, so what is Mueller fishing for again?
I'm sorry, so what does the senate investigation interviewing Donny's son about meeting with Russians and then lying about it have to do with Mueller? Right, it doesn't.

Anyone else think it's a bit rich that he was trying to learn about Clinton's "fitness to be president?"
Rich, but I highly doubt he was telling the truth. Junior has a history of being dishonest.

Nice distraction instead to focus on $150,000 that may have been spent on Facebook ads by the 'Russians' when over 1 billion was spent on ads everywhere else.
Nice backpedal too, btw. We went from "collusion definitely didn't happen" to "even if it happened, what's $150,000 in a $1 billion campaign?" Love it :D

Why have they not made the updated data available to the people who asked for it?
Because they just sent in a request for the updated data, duh. So no, it wasn't 10 months.
When is 'later'? maybe 'never'?
Yeah man, its a total conspiracy. The system is so rigged and Trump still won. ;) He's the greatest! Good grief.

So Black, can you answer Katsu's question. Kinda compelling stuff:
Interesting. You do realize a judge's order doesn't require outside judgement, don't you?
He is absolutely correct when he points out that:
But the fact that you think a judge needs a second opinion for their orders to count, while simultaneously believing DACA to be illegal when it hasn't even been ruled on, while simultaneously believing Dreamer children who committed no crime tells us you have a peculiar notion of what it means for a thing to be illegal. And it's also telling that all those opinions about what constitutes illegality break down conveniently on whether they negatively affect white people or people of color.
What gives? One set of rules for racist Trump supporting sheriffs and another for everyone else, Dreamers included?
1 ( +2 / -1 )
I clumsily explained that.
Which is specifically why I asked about that. Kind of hard to believe. There is a clear difference.
What you seemed to have missed was this:
They’re looking at a preliminary report from January, and just recently, in the last week, they’ve filed a request for an updated report,” Allen said. “They’re looking at incomplete data.
Now that those are entered, the difference is like 30—and that’s the best accountability we’ve ever had,” Allen told Fox News. “Their claim is false and ridiculous.”
He explained that city uses an electronic poll book system launched in 2014, and, “We’ve had to go back and go through paper applications every election cycle since then, and the paper applications have filled in the gap every time.”
When asked why the Board has yet to set the record straight and make any public announcement, Allen responded, “Why would we announce? We’re only 30 off. We’ve had our best record ever.”
But yeah, its all just a huge conspiracy. Everyone is secretly, but not so secretly really, out to get Trump.
By the way, there are frequently discrepancies that are later rectified. This is why people shouldn't rely on exit polls for example.

So, not only did Chicago have a 100% voter turn out, they actually had a 15,000 more votes than residents? Must be some very patriotic illegal immigrants, huh?;) seriously though, I'd love some more information on this, I can't seem to find anything on it.

You do realize that his tax returns were prepared by tax lawyers not him personally, right?
I had noooo idea. That's brilliant, thanks four teaching me something ;)
And that every year if there were any discrepancies at all as far as non allowed deductions or reductions in taxable income, those would have been corrected between the IRS and his tax lawyers?
Assuming a) he is audited, and b) he's not using fishy tax loopholes.
Seriously though, why won't Donny release his tax returns?

Every person who went to school was accepted instead of someone else who applied.
Also not true. You are assuming there is a fixed amount of seats. From connecting our world:
Fact: According to the National Immigration Law Center: Most undocumented students are likely to have zero impact on admission rates of native-born students: Since 2001, 10 states have made it easier for undocumented state residents to attend college by offering in-state tuition to those who qualify. A significant portion of the students that took advantage of this opportunity have done so to attend community colleges, which have open enrollment. The small numbers of students who will attend 4-year universities are not significant enough to affect the opportunities of others. The higher education community strongly supports this bill. Organizations including the American Association of Community Colleges, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, National Educators Association, the College Board, and many university presidents and chancellors support the DREAM Act.

Let's face it, DACA was a transparent attempt by the Democrats at gerrymandering votes.
We can't do that, that's for Republicans to do, amiright?
Let's face it, reversing DACA was a clear attempt by Donald Trump at making America white again. Here's what Steve King, Iowa representative, white supremacist, and Trump supporter has to say about demographics:
Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies.
I'm sure Steve King is every bit as concerned about rule of law as perjurer, Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions, is.

Which of these do you consider not 'serious' if you were the victim of it?
When I read "serious," I think misdemeanor vs felony. Generally, property crimes (like theft) are not so serious. Likewise, a first time DUI conviction, for simple DUI, no accident etc., would not be considered a serious crime.
No, most of you say 'remove all the US military from Okinawa, they are criminals who shouldnt be there!!!'
Who is "you all?" I've never said such a thing, I certainly believe they have a right to be there. Also comparing US servicemen with criminals seems a bit over the top. Why even make that comparison? The fact is Dreamers/DACA commit crimes at lower rates than actual US citizens. https://www.cato.org/publications/immigration-research-policy-brief/dreamer-incarceration-rate
Probably because a conviction means one is likely to be deported for breaking the law or have their DACA renewal rejected.

That is 2,139 people (at least) who were victims of a serious crime who shouldnt have been.
They were all serious crimes? How do you know that?

How many of them were liberals vs conservatives and how many in total and from which part of the country?
Read the link, Bass.
I think a lot more Americans are happy with Trump's decision, but I know the liberals and especially the Silicon geeks hate it, I would assume.
And the majority of Americans, from both political parties. I am sure Trump's decision is pleasing to his core constituency of bigots, but that's about it.
Maybe that's why Donny didn't make the announcement and why Sessions didn't take questions from the press.

72% of Americans support Trump's action, according to Pew Research. That's called "democracy." Get used to it.

Trumps issues with South Korean trade came before the NK test and not out of it.
And then brought it up again yesterday. That was stupid. Just like I said in my first post.
Whatever problem he had with SK, he should have tabled it rather than having a go at NK.

Trumps trade issues with SK and his issues with their soft position on NK behaviour are two seperate issues.
Precisely why it was a stupid move. The problem right now is North Korea, not South Korea.

do you understand that Trump hasn't threatened to end a SK trade deal?
Trade pact, whatever. Pretty poor timing to threaten to cancel a trade pact with SK.

Cowardly appeasement is what allowed Hitler to rise to power and destroy Europe.
1) The situation with NK is incomparable to Nazi Germany.
2) Threatening to end the SK trade deal sounds a lot like appeasement to me.
