Holy shit is that a tremendous read. Thanks for posting it CID!

:clap: :clap: :clap: :nod: :nod: :nod:

ps Don't tell Citadelgrad that we have a democracy. :lol:


Agreed - fantastic read and a spot on analysis of how we are where we are right now. This snippet was especially on target...

The trouble with success in a democratic nation is that it leaves its failures behind, still holding votes with which to impede or overturn those to whom it owes its success. So, as Tocqueville also shows, democracy becomes its own unsparing critic. Trump’s educated opponents do not quite realize what has hit them, and they try to identify it as some force hostile to democracy—fascism or authoritarianism or just plain conservatism. In fact, their enemy comes from within their own egalitarianism, of which the vulgar Trump is a truer expression than they are, who constantly promote it but don’t practice it.

No more like Planned Parenthood > the Koch's. Look at the money rolling into Dems. > than Reps. How do you think that PP gets away with 500,000 murders a year and selling body parts?

It's more like PP kills people, the NRA doesn't, but the spin and lie told by the left is just the opposite.


Absolutely none of this ^ is related to anything from our previous debate points...

:shock:

at least I can't reasonably connect the dots you are connecting
I'm totally cool with debating planned Parenthood or whatever but how did we just get there?

Probably, so that is why they all live north of Everett. I have met quite a few employees where both spouses started right out of high school and have insane retirements. The benefit of saving early.

With regard to Chizzy's post about wealthy individuals I submit this op-ed that the real folks with influence and power that avoid laws are the left leaning non profits.

“A federal appeals court on Friday handed the Trump administration a partial victory in its quest for an asylum ban, appearing to clear the way for imposing it along the border in New Mexico and Texas, at least temporarily.

While the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld a lower court's decision to block the ban, it narrowed the nationwide injunction to the 9th Circuit, which encompasses district courts in the border states of Arizona and California....”

Good. A single circuit judge shouldn’t be able to issue a nationwide injunction- the injunction should be limited to his/her circuit. A say single 9th Circuit Judge shouldn’t be able to issue an injunction that rules on what can happen in say the 5th Circuit, without a single 5th Circuit nudge having the opportunity to overturn the injunction applying in the 5th Circuit.

And SCOTUS overturns the 9th Circuit 7-2, saying the asylum ban could go into effect..
