  1. The mental gymnastics people play to explain Trumpism as some enterprise in wisdom and intelligence is fun to watch.
  2. we are all rainbows tonight.
  3. I was arguing against your broader point that he's not shown autocratic behavior beyond rhetoric so therefore he won't do it in the future. I was specifically talking about the wall and the majority is not with him there. Now that was relatively benign in the overall scheme of things but he painted himself into a corner and he used emergency powers to get out of it. Maybe the vast majority of what he says is bluster, however maybe we should watch for when he gets stuck. He had to deliver some kind of wall. But after re-reading the post I quoted of yours I can see you were talking about something specific. carry on.
  4. Nothing new under the sun. Wash, rinse, repeat.
  5. He already declared a "national emergency" to circumvent Congress to get a political win so he hasn't been all fluff.

  7. Eh... https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/01/presidential-emergency-powers/576418/
  8. I don't know about that but all of a sudden we talking bout Popeye's because they made a sandwich? Like if del taco made a new burrito and the internet went all "you got to try this new offering from del taco" I mean I wouldn't worry about it too much. We're talking about ghetto Popeye's for crissakes and I got cars backing up into Sahara Ave. Wtf?
  9. Srsly though this Popeye's thing is weird AF. Some 4th rate franchise all of a sudden has lines out into the street? This is some next level marketing.
  10. Wendy's spicy chicken is the correct answer.
  11. Absolutely. It's not like his base is there for the conservatism and he could step on the toes of his opponents. Good call, advisor Mugtang.
  12. Our republic is structurally and intentionally way more elitist than people realize. Jeff and those guys were high faluting and had some high learned thoughts. They got to create a new country and weren't about to let a bunch of inferiors muck it up. They tried anyway.
  13. Oh, soup for brains... I merely applauded someone else's post for coming to the table with some realities of the situation and I never said one thing about personally wanting more laws. In fact I said I didn't endorse everything halfman put forth. And shouldn't halfman be your idiot since we're really talking about his post or are you too much of a partisan worm for that? No need to answer. Please go eat all the dicks if you haven't already.
  14. Although I'm not necessarily endorsing every idea on that list got dang that's a good post addressing many of the dynamics of the issue from not some impossible mythical purely ideological stance but a real world one with actual humans living in it stance right there tell u wut. Yes, it has to be a very multi-faceted solution in which our gun culture is significantly altered. Let's also not make perfect the enemy of good. Let's get the terrorism reduced.
  15. The thing is we don't throw our hands up in the air to defeat heart disease, alzheimhers, cancer, etc. There are literally armies of people and billions of dollars thrown at trying to reduce or eliminate the deaths attributed to those types of things. Maybe we can start by putting a proportional amount of resources, effort and money into stopping the murders?
  16. Let's all remember mr root was the VP candidate for the glorious libertarian party in 08.
  17. Messianic enough for you yet?
