How Not to Make a Sandwich

Tractor-Trailer Truck Carrying Deli Meats Collides With Bread Truck


Sandwich.jpg

Not optimal, although I'm sure there were edible bits in the middle if you really wanted to eat.

Remember this next time you hear someone ranting against free trade. Without trade, which gives humans the invaluable ability to specialize, even something as simple as making a sandwich becomes virtually impossible. Remember also that there's a lot in that video he didn't do himself-design and manufacture the plane that took him to the ocean, for example. Leonard E. Read made this point brilliantly in his famous essay I, Pencil.
Oh, Canada. *Shakes Head*

This may be the most Canadian thing ever. Manitoba man robs beer store in full goalie gear

You can watch the security footage at the link. I (kinda) get disguising one's identity with hockey gear, but why did he carry the hockey stick too? It just got in the way.


Everyone Should Vote?

The Idiot Vote: The Democrats' Core Constituency

It's a relatively short book that is worth the $3.95 it costs on Kindle, putting a historical perspective on the effects of widening the franchise. I don't agree with all of the conclusions, but in general the thesis has merit, I think. I also found this map on GAB, but there was no attribution as to the sources used to create it, so I do not vouch for its accuracy (I can't make out the “source” text at the bottom).

Speaking of GAB, you can still sign up here, I know a lot of other Morons have already joined. It's a bit alt-right heavy at the moment, but I bet that will change as they open it up to more people.


Hanging Chads

How the media nearly stole the 2000 election for Al Gore

This article makes a convincing argument that all of the Buchannan voters combined in Palm Beach County wouldn't have mattered if the media hadn't relentlessly pushed the meme that the polls were closed-even though those in the heavily Republican Panhandle weren't.


The Man With the Red Bandana

Heroes walk amongst us every day, and we never know it until TSHTF. Heartwarming story with a wonderful coda from Twitter.

Literal Video

The voice work here is superb, it sounds just like Bonnie Tyler (who, BTW, thinks the video is hilarious).


Smart Kids

Pair of 14-year-old friends invent clever hack to stop ice cream dripping down cones

I hope they enjoyed inventing this, because its a grim future given The Government’s War on Fun. Little is 11, and while he plays far too many video games, I still push him out the door to go ride his bike or run around in the woods. I'll try to report from the gulags after they catch me and prosecute me for insisting that my kid have the chance to be a kid.

Feel Good Story of the Night

Conjoined twins who had slim chance of survival will start school this week. It's easy to forget in the constant barrage of bad news that is our 24/7 media world, but we really do live in an age of miracles. The reason I'm a conservatarian is that I'd like to continue to live in an age of miracles, and I'd like my kids to have the same opportunity. All of this wonder didn't happen by accident, or by government fiat.

Since Libertarian and National Review plankholder Reed wrote that essay in 1958, after almost 60 years of ever freer trade, has the nation economically improved relative to other countries?  Has the worker's position improved relative to workers in other countries and relative to a 1958 worker's basis?

The problem is, the US has been negotiating for itself worse and worse positions, both by bad trade deals and by burdening itself with increasingly insane regulations of all conceivable types.

It does not have a free market and hasn't for a long time, and is significantly less free every day.  We're headed towards a system where the government chooses winners and losers in industry, their chosen winners support the politicians who protect them from competition.  By this, the government exercises de-facto control over all industry.



There's a name for a system where the government controls industry, and where there's still technically private ownership, but only for an approved class of insiders.  Fascism.



Fascism was very popular in the economics schools of the late twenties and early thirties when Mussolini was popularizing the concept, with the US Ambassador to Italy even remarking that he'd be remembered as one of history's great men.  It never went away, it just hid itself behind other labels.

77 bleg for Texit residents...

is there anywhere in Tejas with the following criteria:

Decent housing (schools are not an issue) large lots preferred (10-12K minimum, moar is bettah)
Low incidence of FSA/BLM/LaRaza type population (racialy diverse is fine)
humidity that isn't ridiculous, at least most of the time
no HOA
not a million klicks out in the sticks.

we had a line on a place in Sugar Land, and, even though the lot was smaller than what we have here in #Failifornia, and the pool smaller than ours, we were toying with the idea of a 2nd home/ refuge, until we saw it was in an HOA.

if we can escape the nanny state, "this is how you live your life" shit here, we sure as hello are uninterested in buying into moar of the same from some local, unelected, fascists. (yes, HOAs have elections, but you know what i mean)

81 Willowed but extremely important for the Jamie Lee Curtis Moron Fan club: 931 Jamie Lee Curtis was born a hermaphrodite. This is true. She will not confirm or deny it. Her children are adopted.

83 Ah yes, da'wa. I got an email from a Muslim "inviting" me to that faith last year. Thankfully nothing came of it. "This is a word from your Lord before the advent of a Terrible Day" is a longrunning theme of the Qur'an. Sura 7 is rife with it. Since the Last Day didn't happen in the lifetime of Islam's prophet, the Muslims have turned this into a more temporal threat.

If you can take all of those with the tradeoff of living in a college town, College Station / Bryan might be for you.  There are HOA's in some areas, but not in others.  Most of the population is middle class or working class, and there doesn't seem to be a large FSA contingent.

Thanks to the constant churn of students, you can always find *a* job, even if it's just at the Dairy Queen slinging burgers.

The city's not too big to be horrible to live in, or too small to have all of the things you want.

I moved here 3 years ago from the trainwreck of drug-infested, perpetually recessed Central Florida, and I love it.

96 That's been a persistent rumor, that Jamie Lee was born with some intersex condition (there are many, many different ones). I don't she's ever confirmed or denied it. The stories that she has aren't true, I don't think.

   All her children are adopted, which is consistent with intersex (just about all of them are sterile).  The name "Jamie Lee" is somewhat androgynous and the claim is that Tony and Janet didn't know what to name her until they and the doctors had decided which way to go (this decision can be a difficult one).

      But it's all rumor. No one but her and those involved with her birth know for sure.

The next time someone wheel's out this canard, remember that tariffs do not mean the end to trade. Throughout the history of America, there has been trade. It is only recently that it has been a goal to make the trade "free".

Yep.  A real free trade agreement could be written in one paragraph and leave the rest of the page blank for signatures.  "I won't tax or regulate your shit and you won't tax or regulate mine."  That has never happened in all of human history, and never will.



Instead we get these pieces of legislative bloatware that are designed to increase political power for all of the signatories, with special benefits and carve-outs for their biggest financial backers.

That's exactly it.  I've explained it before and it usually gets pretty long, but their belief system comes from a central paradox, the belief that where human events is concerned, there is no objective truth.  If there's no objective truth, no idea or course of action is any better than any other, and success or failure is completely random.  Communism must work somewhere, at least once, according to that.



Except that's not what happens at all.  Reality refuses to go along with their madness, and our philosophy, which is predicated on the fact that there are eternal truths that can be learned, continues to succeed.  Anything that succeeds more than random chance is impossible to their warped worldview, so they can only come to one conclusion, that's we're cheating.  Imagine seeing somebody win 1000 times in a row at the roulette wheel.  They think we're stealing everybody else's chances to succeed, thus the cult of victimology...



When you reject truth, all you have left are lies and madness.

191 >> You think Jamie Lee Curtis is intersex because she adopted
>> a bunch of sterile children?

     If that's not a joke about ambiguous antecedents or whatever you call it, most (I think all, but there may be a few cases) intersex conditions result in sterility -- the individual is incapable of reproducing as either female or male.

    Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, was another famous one rumored to be intersex, in her case complete androgen insensitivity syndrome.

       When a person has children, and it's usually a woman, since there's no question (unless they faked a birth or something), that's proof they are not intersex.

214 205: That was the result of ambiguous phrasing. It's that her children are sterile, but that she might be.

   Intersex is a failure of the sex differentiation process which starts at some point during fetal gestation. There are many, many ways it can get screwed up, and they all (that I know of, again there may be some very rare special cases) result in sterility.

But my rule of thumb is, if the house that interests you is on an older, grid-plan street, then there is probably no HOA. If it is one of the newer subdivisions, with confusing, similar street names, and curved streets that intersect at weird angles, then there probably is an HOA.

Posted by: Ricardo Kill --------------- Juan Williams is living proof that even life-changing events will not alter a liberal's psyche. I have expended considerable effort presenting inarguable facts and evidence before such people, and they inevitably fall back on, "Well, everyone has their own opinion". When I point that I have just presented facts and data rather than opinion, and invite countervailing facts and data they generally use the evergreen "Well, we'll just have to agree to disagree". Lately, I've been refusing to accept that and point out that it is evasive, and no, I will not agree to anything because to do so would imply that their perspective has some merit.

And for RecC.... congrats on the Russian Colt in hand. Pics, happen/didn't, etc. You know the rules. Further. While College Station is a good enough town, especially of the Collegiate variety, it's only one of many that'd qualify. And the Austin stuff.....sorry, but I'd recommend against, not because it's not a good tip, but because Austin will keep growing, and those "out of town far enough" places, 1/2 hr. out, will be subsumed by the city proper within a decade or so. For the best of Texas life and culture, conservative locales, good land prices and as good weather, I'd suggest looking into: * Kerrville * Fredricksburg * Copperas Cove And if you want slightly smaller towns, stunning, beautiful vistas, and still be but an hour from Austin or San Antonio, perhaps: * Marble Falls * Blanco * Burnet Do your search engine quests on them all. I think you'll find something to suit your vibe with one of those, there. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

Think of the various distortion pedals that they sell for guitars.  I just looked it up as a refresher.  The 3 pedals are the damper, the una corda, and sustenuto.



The damper basically makes every string act as a sympathetic string and completely changes the sound.  The una corda originally had the hammer strike one cord instead of the 3 surrounding it, but modern mechanisms in upright pianos don't allow that, so it's basically a lower power strike now.  The sostenuto or tone sustaining pedal keeps a note from being damped after you remove your fringers from the keyboard.

326 @228

My folks did that in the 70s. They had a dual grill barbecue unit and when we moved to a house with a pool, dismounting the grills, mounting them on posts with gas lines, and setting up a picnic table between worked out very well. The wall used was the kitchen on the other side, so the lines were very close, and the proximity to the big sliding glass door of the adjoining living room made it very easy to to take a platter of stuff from the fridge to the grills.

That house needed a lot of work that my parents never managed to get done but I really miss it. It horrifies me to look at satellite photos and see the pool has been filled in. It's being used as some sort of assisted living facility now.

Posted by: t-bird at September 01, 2016 12:12 AM (ZxmMG) You too? I had one of those installed a year ago. Leaked a bit. I smelled ... something ... but wasn't sure. Then, one day the smell was unmistakable so I called the gas company. They came out and checked it and their meter thing was pinging as loud as anything. Leaks all over where they had replaced the meter and the pipes. So they redid it. The smell that night was 10 times worse than it had ever been. Had to call them again. The idiots who "fixed" the leaks left it all with worse leaks so they had to "fix" it again the next day. I made the guy take readings before he left. What a bunch of incompetents. Thank G-d they only work for the gas company and not something that might be dangerous.

353 305 ONT Greetings, Horde! And speaking of..... but, damn, this is on hell of an ONT, here! Content out the wazoo. It's so yuuuge, it's nearly Trumpian in scope and breadth. And for RecC.... congrats on the Russian Colt in hand. Pics, happen/didn't, etc. You know the rules. Further. While College Station is a good enough town, especially of the Collegiate variety, it's only one of many that'd qualify. And the Austin stuff.....sorry, but I'd recommend against, not because it's not a good tip, but because Austin will keep growing, and those "out of town far enough" places, 1/2 hr. out, will be subsumed by the city proper within a decade or so. For the best of Texas life and culture, conservative locales, good land prices and as good weather, I'd suggest looking into: * Kerrville * Fredricksburg * Copperas Cove And if you want slightly smaller towns, stunning, beautiful vistas, and still be but an hour from Austin or San Antonio, perhaps: * Marble Falls * Blanco * Burnet Do your search engine quests on them all. I think you'll find something to suit your vibe with one of those, there.

393 Why/how is H2 used? Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at September 01, 2016 12:28 AM (9mTYi) Baseline (a manufacturer) total gas detector, and gas chromatograph. They use a flame ionization detector. Very sensitive, and the output voltage is directly proportional to the concentration of the gas being detected. You have a tiny hydrogen flame burning in an enclosed burner, with a chimney. There is an electrode ring, not far from the burner. There is a voltage impressed upon the electrode ring relative to the burner tip. You have a quiet "baseline" current. Introduce a gas species into the supplied air stream for the burner, and you get ions in the flame, current increases. FWIW, on the "portable" units, the output of the chromat was fed to an HP integrator, which output the results of the run on a paper tape. The bigger logging units had a computer to do that job.

429 Upside? We now have evidence that, since the '60s, the potency of pot has grown stronger.

Oh, has it ever.

I haven't smoked pot in at least 20 years, and damn few times before that. I never liked it much, I'd get that loopy high(which I never found to be all that), but 20 minutes or so later I'd fall sound asleep. What's the point?

Well, earlier this year (May 2nd, to be exact) that changed, and wow did it ever fuck me up. That was the night Cruz withdrew from the race. Being a Cruz guy, I was bummed, so I went out to the local pub for a beer. I've very careful with my alcohol intake when I drive-I know my limits, and how much = what BAC-and I stay well within them, even if the pub is only about a 6-7 minute drive from home.

So I had a beer, and then went to leave, and around the corner of the bar was a guy I knew-a bar acquaintance- smoking a joint. It doesn't bother me when people get high, I just don't chose to partake. He offered me a hit, as he'd done before, and instead of declining as usual, I accepted. I figured I'd take a hit, get home before the buzz started, and then I could fall right asleep instead of tossing and turning obsessing over the stupid election. I got in my car and left.

5 minted later I was in trouble. What I should have done was park and walk home, but I was just turning onto my street. This sucks, but be careful, be cool, just get home. I can handle this.

I drove right past my house, realized what I had done, and turned around.

And drove right past my house again, going the other way.

SHIT!

So I go slowly around the block, sitting on the edge of me seat, yelling at myself to keep myself in the moment "You're so high. You're SO damn high! YOU'RE SO FUCKING HIGH!"

And I got home safely by the grace of God and went to bed, but even then the anticipated sleep didn't come, I tossed for hours obsessing about just how STUPID I'd been and just how LUCKY I was. I suppose it worked, I didn't think once about the election.

Never again.

So yea, pot is just a bit more potent than it was back in the day.

But the Brazilian we got one time, in a deal that would make a great Cheech & Chong style movie, made all those other things seem like ditch weed. So, it's just that good pot is more readily available. And if you're not acclimated to the good stuff, well, a room full of us passed out half-way through a bowl of Brazilian knows how you feel.

The point of it is that you supposedly lose all credibility when you throw up your hands and accuse someone in an argument, and here's the important thing, who isn't a Nazi nor did exactly the same things as a Nazi, of being one. So it technically isn't "Going Godwin" if you are ACTUALLY in an argument with a real Nazi, and you remind them of that fact. As an internet rule, it's a pretty good one.

535 The Baltic Dry Index has been in a secular decline ever since the Crash of '08. It took the biggest nosedive in it's history then, collapsing overnight about. It bounced back, but the trendline has been down ever since, and this year, it reached it's all time low, far lower than the trough during the Crash.

      It measures demand for shipping vs supply. You can look up the definition, how ship supply is tight and inelastic and all that. Anyway, the long decline in the Index over the years mean the demand for global shipping is shrinking relative to supply.  It's a global indicator.

Whatever happened with that city for 500,000 they were building in Africa? I think this is it:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilamba

It looks like they scaled it back to 200K of living space. It seems they paid the Chinese in oil but when it was discussed previously there was an obvious question of the lack of locals with the earning levels to afford such homes. I wondered if the Chinese were planning to import a large number of their own to work the oil industry and other operations there after 'something' happened to allow for the land grab.

551 Morning Morons:


I love that map of "if only tax payers voted".  Something I have been saying for years.  We need an amendment that specifies that you can only vote in any election if you pay net taxes of "x" amount to that the district that is subject to the vote.  IOW to vote in a nationwide election you pay net federal taxes.  To vote for a State Senator you pay net taxes to that State etc all the way down to the local government level. Every voter must have "skin" in the game.  If you don't pay for it then you don't get to demand it.  I would also put a requirement in it to be a US citizen with proof at registration.   But all of that would require an Art V convention which some people are afraid of.


And on the 2000 FL Democrat steal attempt, to this day you can not get a truthful answer out of any of the MFM or any Democrat.  And if the same actions were held today Gore would be President because the Republicans have allowed Obama to pack the courts with communist zealots and he would have stolen the election with the old Democrat strategy of recount until we win.

556 Good Morning Morons.  Today is Thursday, September 01, 2016.  On this day in 1939 Adolf Hitler began the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people.  The order was actually signed on Oct 1939, but was back-dated to September 1 when they actually began the program.  The program ran officially from September 1939 to August 1941, during which a recorded 70,273 people were killed at various extermination centers located at psychiatric hospitals in Germany and Austria, along with those in occupied Poland. Little is heard about this ghastly program because he did so much other evil in his short history as German dictator.

561 The Scalia-less SCOTUS tied on the NC appeal of the Obama stacked 4th circuit court of appeals blocking of their voter ID law despite the fact that a prior court ruling had said the laws with similar protections in them were in fact good.  Stare Decisis doesn't mean shit to liberals accept when it is holding up something they want.  Be sure to remember that the next time one of those assholes even mentions that word.   So NC can not require a picture ID to vote even though every other Tom, Dick, and Harry group, including the NAACP, requires it to get in their buildings.   And all you ball-less Republicans in the Senate who have confirmed every liberal constitution hating Democrat zealot appointed by Obama to the court, take a big bite of the shit sandwich you created. Unfortunately we have to eat it too because too many people "trusted you". We really do need to fix the federal court system in this country by removing appointments to the court from DC.  You can not trust anyone in that shithole of a city.

587 Morning everyone. New York Daily News is, this morning, running a story on how Cinemark is 'shaking down' Aurora theater shooting survivors for 700k dollars in legal expenses. You see...they sued Cinemark, on shaky legal grounds. The judge in the case urged the plaintiffs to accept a proposed settlement, which they rejected. Later, they lost their suit. Now they're on the hook for the legal expenses Cinemark had to pay in order to defend itself. The story leads us to believe, without ever actually stating it, that all this comes totally unexpected. No one could possibly have predicted that the evil Hitler like Cinemark would go after widows and orphans for so much money. It's adding insult to injury, or something. It's also a load of bs. They knew what the risks were, and proceeded with their suit anyway. They took their chances, hoping for a little Jackpot Justice, and they lost. Also, not mentioned in the story, how their own legal team, and associated expenses are being paid. http://tinyurl.com/z9b5fa7

Off in some "Safe Space" where she can catch a nap, and nobody can see her seizures or coughing fits, I guess. No, Trump's main opponent is the Media. It's not even just the MSM. How many times have I seen non-Leftist Fox people repeat the lie about Trump having said that Mexicans are rapists, and probably a bunch of other mischaracterizations where - if they don't simply repeat what the MSM said - they beat HIM over the head for having ALLOWED the MSM the chance to do it to him. It's kinda like blaming the rape victim for wearing a skirt. With the GOP Establishment showing their traitorous colors, I'm not sure whether to call Hillary is 2nd-biggest opponent, or his 3rd.

627 Laura Ingraham casually referred to Trump as "President Trump" last night, and it seemed very fitting.  Despite desperate spin by the left, Trump laid a solid foundation for "immigration reform" as it should be done.

The left spins "Trump lied" because they didn't "negotiate" who would pay, which of course they would not do on an initial meeting anyway.  But Trump can arrange collections from the $30B in legal remittances to Mexico, much of which is probably untaxed gray market income anyway.

Still the shills come out and say "Trump didn't get them to agree to pay, so he is a liar, what else is he lying about?"  The "journolistas" can be bothered with actually reading the Trump website, they just preach the DNC talking points with as much venom as they can muster.

.I agree, he did not flip flop, the msm is trying to play that angle though.  I actually like his plan and even if he only gets a small part of it done, it's way better than having hillary in.

Been to a few lefty sites today and Trump literally hit a home run yesterday.  99% of the comments are "Trump is a bigoted racist and anyone who supports him is a white supremacist"  type of comment.  That's all they have. 

Panic in the left has truly set in.  His speech and visit combined with hillary dropping in the polls has made them realize that she does not have this election in the bag like they were lead to believe.   

Her own team knows that the more people see and hear her the more her numbers drop.  That's why she is in seclusion I think.

630 @623 Posted by: Optimizer at September 01, 2016 07:32 AM (EnK/R) That "huge" bump was a made up pack of lies from the MFM. Pat Caudell called them on it. Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at September 01, 2016 07:36 AM (mpXpK) I think I had heard that at some point (from Tammy Bruce, maybe?). I would have liked to see his arguments. We've been down that road before, where we say "the polls are lies." The polls really were crap, but (legit or not) they at least picked the winning side. That being said, I remember at least one pro in the field talking about how it's become kind of impossible to poll, and that a lot of pollsters are getting out of the business. There's also how Trump overperformed vs the polls in the later primaries.

631 Look at the article I linked from the Fox site on Trump's immigration speech. Anyone who reads that and says he is going weak on immigration is a liar.Posted by: Vic We Have No Party Trump seems to parse his sentences when he first promotes a concept. People read all sorts of details into something that lacks details. Then when the details are actually presented it doesn't agree with their invented memory and they start slinging accusations like so many of Hillarys lamps. I've learned to wait for the details. Posted by: free range 'sorta' conservative but not 'true' conservative at September 01, 2016 07:40 AM (ZFUt7) As I said I thought it was a great speech. And aside from the exploding necklaces and the machine gun nests every 25 yards at the border it was as much as any reasonable guy could hope for!

632 Trump never said he was going to round up illegals and put them on cattle cars and dump them across the border. What he said was if they did not have jobs they would leave on their own. The way to do that is bust a few companies that hire them and fine those companies so heavy that other companies will start getting rid of them. I have nothing against Mexicans or whoever getting a work visa. But these illegals have got to go. The way this world is, we need to know who is in our country.

When all the other cards have been shown on the "flop", the racist card is the last hoorah they have to play.  It is the new Godwin Rule.  When they play that card you know they have already lost.

634 Laura Ingraham casually referred to Trump as "President Trump" last night, and it seemed very fitting. I was watching the streaming news on CBS yesterday and they referred to the Trump and Mexican president meeting as 'both Presidents'. Ah, if only I could have been in the room if Hillary was watching that. I'd love to watch her lamp tossing in action.

635 Officials at the House Democratic campaign arm appear very worried that their negative assessments about their own candidates, which were hacked and released publicly by a group linked to Russian intelligence, will be used against them by Republicans. DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, in a letter Monday to his counterpart, National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Greg Walden, asked the Oregon Republican to bar all Republicans from using the DCCC internal memo with the damaging information in ads against Democrats.

Luján argued that the memo could have been doctored, so Republicans' use of it would essentially be "aiding the Russian government" in their attempt to sway U.S. elections.

"The Russians have a long track record of doctoring documents acquired through cyberattacks, and while we cannot confirm their authenticity, their appearance online is certainly a notable concern," Luján wrote. "The NRCC's use of documents stolen by the Russians plays right into the hands of one of the United States' most dangerous adversaries. Put simply, if this action continues, the NRCC will be complicit in aiding the Russian government in its effort to influence American elections."

The DCCC, however, refuses to say whether the information in the DCCC memo was altered or not, citing an ongoing FBI investigation.

636 Well, as I said, Pat Caudell had a pretty good argument that the polls were rigged. 


Just keep in mind how every one of the media goons kept saying Trump's downfall was right around the corner as he kept blowing all the other opponents out of the water.

637 One of the head guys from RCP said yesterday that the DNC was extremely worried about all the shoes dropping on Scankles' head this week.


My stance is the DNC pushed her into the nomination and now they can eat their shit sandwich.

639 One of the faithful here put a link to the Trump speech transcript toward the end of the thread on it. (Thanks!) It's worth a read. I found the whole thing uplifting, and eminently practical. I could see absolutely every single thing he said actually being implemented, he justifies it with no apologies, gives the necessary historical perspective - the whole deal. It's 100% the kind of stuff where you ought to be asking, "Why wasn't this done 40 years ago?" It's what ANY competent government with any means would do. That being said, there IS a legitimate "weak spot" of sorts. While he says, "no amnesty", and "all are subject to deportation", in reality what he's saying about non-criminal illegals already here is "WE'LL FIGURE THAT OUT LATER." The actual quote is, "[After border security is established, and the criminal aliens are kicked out] then and only then will we be in a position to consider the appropriate disposition of those who remain. That discussion can only take place in an atmosphere in which illegal immigration is a memory of the past, allowing us to weigh the different options available based on the new circumstances at the time." The Media (MFM and otherwise) were salivating with glee over Trump's supposed "turnaround" on his signature issue for a week, and they're grabbing this like a lion would a juicy steak, but this is only "softening". You can believe that he won't really do all the deporting he originally spoke of, or you can believe he CAN'T, or you can believe that he plans on doing it but wisely chooses to NOT SAY. Who cares? He's the only guy who credibly goes as far as he does, be it a Rep or a Dem. If he gets all 10 steps done (and he WILL, if the GOP doesn't succeed in stopping him), it would be HUGE, regardless, and about friggin' time.

640 Barring some seismic event driven shift in this campaign (no small thing, could easily happen) I'm staying up to watch the returns and taking a vacation day on Wednesday. It may be entertaining. It may be depressing. But it sure as hell is going to be educational.

641 How many times have I seen non-Leftist Fox people repeat the lie about Trump having said that Mexicans are rapists, ______________________ Yes, what he said was that a lot of the people coming over the border and into the U.S. illegally from Mexico are coming here to commit crimes like rape and murder, and that Mexico is happy to dump its criminals on us. And that is an obvious truth, and anyone who doubts it just needs to take a look at the prison populations in states like AZ and CA and TX. Our prisons here in AZ are chock full of illegal alien Mexicans who've committed violent crimes in AZ (and continue to commit violent crimes while living in AZ prisons and being housed, clothed, fed, and provided "free" medical care by AZ taxpayers). Ever heard of the New Mexican Mafia? They're a violent Mexican prison gang, widespread throughout the southwest U.S., and most of them are illegal aliens. The required initiation rite is murder. But yeah, Trump is the problem.

642 So funny - Abuel Borracha and team are more concerned about the ise made of documents and materials hacked by whomever than they are by the actual revelation of wrongdoing, shenanigans, and criminality on their part. Ans complaining about foreign interference, coming from the bitch who rented out her office to the highest bidder, and who set the mideast on fire, is laughable. There's nothing you can possibly imagine, no matter how Insane or stupid or evil, that she hasn't done or allowed to be done.

Posted by: TrivialPursuer at September 01, 2016 07:57 AM (NnYnv) What's so amazing is that you don't even have to bother to even look at that. All you have to do is ask the question: "If these illegal aliens are so wonderful, why isn't Mexico building the wall on their own - to keep them IN." Why the hell doesn't anybody ever ask that?
