  1. Nah, just a few guys constantly reposting russian bots memes.
  2. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/history-of-gun-control-legislation/2012/12/22/80c8d624-4ad3-11e2-9a42-d1ce6d0ed278_story.html?utm_term=.afa7fd46fad6 Since we have had zero new gun control legislation passed since the Brady bill 25 years ago, sure, that would be great. May not fix much as far as gun violence goes, but at least everyone would have health care.
  3. Journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step. This seems like an easy first step to make, and I applaud the POTUS for pushing it.
  4. https://www.ksl.com/?sid=46265221&nid=757&title=utah-gop-lawmakers-pushing-to-end-death-penalty Thought I would post this since there doesn't seem to be enough controversy on the board.
  5. OT: Disneyland Gear Report

    Had free entrance to the Disney parks for about 10 years with my last job, used to go 3-4 times a year. The fastpass system they have in the Florida parks with the wristbands was great, you could get your fastpasses ahead of time and plan your park stays accordingly. Staying at the Disney properties in California is really expensive, but great for the Magic mornings where only the hotel guests have access to the park, you can get in more rides then than the rest of the day. Our favourite Disney experience was the cruises, went on 2 and kids and adults all loved them. They had kids clubs where you could drop off kids and be assured they were safe and having a great time, while parents got some time to enjoy themselves. I don't know if we ever do a Disney vacation again, as kids are a bit older and I would now have to pay for park entrance, but had a lot of fun family trips there.
  6. Stay current on the

    Aw, you are thinking of me even though I haven't commented in this thread. How sweet, I must really be in your head.
  7. Jimyma Crow Laws

    Not sure what you are trying to get at here. Did you watch the video? Vice interviews controversial people, and airs what they said. The interview with the white nationalist on the link I posted was presented pretty much without commentary ( reporter rolled her eyes a few times ). They allow these people to speak and it is up to the viewer to decide what they agree with, seems like good journalism to me.
  8. Stupid tech question...

    Which browser are you using? In Chrome, if you click on the three vertical dots icon on upper right corner of window and select More tools/Clear browsing data you can clear cookies and other things there ( I don't know if this will accomplish what you want ).
  9. Jimyma Crow Laws

    Not a whole lot of commentary, for the most part they record interviews and document the event. Had they censored the interview in the OP to make her sound more reasonable, I am sure you would have objected. There are interviews with one of the main white nationalist guys at about 2:30 mark and 19:30 mark.
  10. Jimyma Crow Laws

    You would prefer they censor it? They also aired racist rants from white supremacists during the Charlottesville events. Do you think that is because they agreed with them? Just because they air someone saying something does not mean they agree with it.
  11. What a beautiful couple

    That may be the one sin his supporters would not forgive.
  12. LOL. BYU fan site promoting the idea that BYU is being held back by the league they are in ( a league which they have never won ) because the league is full of crappy teams, and BYU regularly loses to a couple of the crappy teams. If only there were not so many crappy teams in the league, BYU would do better. Makes perfect sense.

  14. People moving have a much better chance of succeeding if they have some sort of support group in the community they are moving to. The best support group is family, which is why I do not like the vilification of "chain migration", you are much more likely to succeed in a new place ( especially new country ) if you have family around to support you. Other forms of support can come from other communities an individual identifies with, such as members of their religion, ethnic group or race. If none of this exists in a locale where someone may want to go for increased opportunity, the move can be very daunting.
