  1. Seems like the majority of the messaging I've been hearing is 15$ minimum wage, debt cancellation, Medicare for all, etc.
  2. I wasn't referring to you. Just posted a punny gif in response to Lawlor. Peace.
  3. GDP Black Unemployment Rate Overall Unemployment Rate Manufacturing Jobs
  4. You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.
  5. I guess the executive can do whatever they want as long as one of the houses of Congress is controlled by the same party. Nice.
  6. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/07/send-her-back-trump-supporters-his-nc-rally/594268/ He says exactly what I feel
  7. Your first response was to literally ignore my question and to re-frame it as what I "really" was asking, and then answering your own question with some trend data on things that, first of all, do not indicate anything on their own about racist statements or policies, and second of all, were all trends that began before Trump, even the manufacturing jobs figures. But that's a whole 'nother discussion. Now you're giving my some "both sides" jive. I'll let you off the hook, though. Carry on.
  8. I appreciate your engagement but you're avoiding the question in my opinion. Is it possible that your unwillingness to answer the question is because if you admit he said racist things you'll have to reconcile that with your support for him? That you'll have to find his racist speech acceptable or justifiable to continue?
  9. Seems like they're a license to print money. LV didn't have them forever cuz LV is the devil's city, but when the kids took over they saw the light$$$. The one by my house was one of the first and the the most central in town. They actually had to alter the traffic of pretty large roads because of it. Had to install a new traffic signal like 200 yards from a major intersection. Total cluster f.
  10. The constitution of the US and probably all of the states have been morally wrong...a lot. What irks me about this law is that it's basically a symbolic and worthless affirmation of free speech and at the same a little symbolic dog whistle ear flick to the libs or the lgbtq. Lgbtq is not a statewide protected class but I can imagine something similar to this being passed about protecting those that would donate to anti-interracial marriage 60 or 70 years ago. It may have been "legal" or constitutional to do so, but it's way gross.
  11. It's wiki but here's some info. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Texas
  12. I don't live in Berkeley or California and it certainly doesn't hurt anyone so knock yourselves out, Berkeley. You do you.
  13. No, actually I wanted your thoughts on the specific question I asked. Has he said or tweeted racist stuff?
  14. Do you feel Trump has publicly said/tweeted racist things as president?
  15. I'm just happy to see a filled a position at this point.
  16. You gotta respect him. It took a lot of nerve for Trump to blame the deplorables and then act like he didn't bask in the group think hate of it all.
  17. I do not support her politically but "love it or leave it" is the opposite of what the country stands for.
  18. What do your strawman arguments and assigning things to me I never said or believe have to do with this? I'm asking you politely, please put me on ignore and do not respond to my posts ever again. I won't read them.
