    Poll reveals dems prefer socialism over capitalism.

    I think you're arguing the same thing. There's the free market, which both tends to reward behaviors you describe, but also tends to raise all boats so Joe Idiot ends up retiring a millionaire anyway because he bought a house in 1972 and it appreciated (also, he's been seeing raises his whole life). Then there's crony capitalism, where those with money use their money to influence how laws are made to make more money. They aren't doing it by capitalism; they're doing it by using government influence to favor them, or even to outright get jobs or contracts that are valuable from the feds. Those are 2 different economies.

    Operation Red Sea

    Convert, it isn't about "saving some money". It's the ability to use any resource at all. Nobody else has aircraft carriers. Nobody else has the equipment our military does. To be able to use those, the Pentagon can change the script. Providing hundreds of millions in free aide to the filmmakers is absolutely "paying for" movies. https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/exclusive-documents-expose-direct-us-military-intelligence-influence-on-1-800-movies-and-tv-shows-36433107c307 hundreds of movies are edited by them. Seriously Convert your ability to critically think about this is even more laughably absent than usual

    Operation Red Sea

    Convert, you know that to be able to film any military hardware, the Pentagon gets script editing privileges, right?

    Oh Laura Ingram and Fox

    Yes, those are totally words that he said. lol. Criticizing one person is not the same as leaving off of criticism of a second person, or praising them. Acting like it is is tiresome.

    Your prediction that they will create a new award?
  6. Ok... but that's not what chain migration is. Call that nuclear migration.

    Oh Laura Ingram and Fox

    What does that have to do with this exchange? Do you think that criticism is a zero sum game or something?

    I predict that nobody will win that honor. The "MW's QB MVP" is not a thing.

    Oh Laura Ingram and Fox

    Wasn't he the prime mover in the birther deal?
  11. Yeah. That is eliminating chain migration. Also, all of his quotes. Because you're incapable of reading an article: 1. On Twitter, Sept. 15, 2017 "CHAIN MIGRATION cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!" he wrote. 2. During an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Oct. 11, 2017 "Chain migration is one of the disasters. You allow one person and in that one person brings in 10 or 12 people," Trump said to Hannity. 3. During a Cabinet meeting, and then on Twitter, Nov. 1, 2017 Trump talked at the Nov. 1 Cabinet meeting about the truck attack in New York by Saipov. "We do not want chain migration where somebody like him ultimately will be allowed to bring in many, many members of his family." 4. During the State of the Union, Jan. 30, 2018: "The fourth and final pillar protects the nuclear family by ending chain migration. Under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives. Under our plan, we focus on the immediate family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children. 5. During a weekly address, Feb. 10, 2018: "My administration has identified three major priorities for creating a safe, modern, and lawful immigration system: fully securing the border, ending chain migration, and canceling the visa lottery. Chain migration is a disaster, and very unfair to our country. 6. During a tax reform roundtable in West Virginia, April 5, 2018 "And chain migration -- think of that. So you come in, and now you can bring your family, and then you can bring your mother and your father. You can bring your grandmother. You can bring your this; you can bring -- we had somebody on the West Side Highway, which I know very well -- in Manhattan -- he ran over -- I think he killed about eight people," he said. 7. During an interview with Rush Limbaugh, Aug. 1, 2018 "We have the worst laws! How about chain migration? One person comes in and you end up with 32 people. The person that ran down 18 people on the West Side Highway, he's allowed to have -- and I think eight died. He has 22 members of his family in the United States because of chain migration. So we have to change this stuff, Rush," he said. 8. During a campaign rally in Ohio, Aug. 4, 2018 "How about chain migration? How about that? Somebody comes in, he brings his mother, and his father, and his aunt and uncle, 15 times removed. He brings them all," Trump said. Yeah, Trump isn't against chain migration, other than all those times when he specifically said it should end, including in this year's state of the union address. Give me a flipping break dude.

    I guarantee that Rypien does not end up as the "MW QB MVP".
  13. It's a curve, though, isn't it? If you don't have any workers of a certain type, the wage is effectively zero. If workers are so expensive that you just go all automation, the wage is effectively zero. If a job is sociologically undesirable so only outsiders will do it, the wage would have been zero anyway. He called for it to end. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-essential-washington-updates-hold-trump-on-chain-migration-1517356312-htmlstory.html https://abcnews.go.com/US/times-trump-slammed-chain-migration-apparently-helped-wifes/story?id=57132429
