  1. I think a big part of the reason Trump pushed so hard for the citizenship question is that the inclusion of such a question is overwhelmingly supported by voters. It's a perfectly reasonable, sensible, and appropriate question to ask. Trump made Democrats show their hand here. Once again, he got them to vitriolically support a very unpopular idea: Most Americans support citizenship question on census form, poll finds https://thehill.com/hilltv/what-americas-thinking/441372-most-americans-support-citizenship-question-on-census-form-poll Six in 10 registered voters, 60 percent, in a Hill-HarrisX survey released Tuesday said that the U.S. Census Bureau should ask the citizenship question even if it results in fewer responses. Another 21 percent said the question should not be included, while 19 percent were unsure... Even a plurality of Democrats want the question to be asked: Among Republicans, 81 percent supported a citizenship question, as did 54 percent of independents. A plurality of Democrats, 49 percent, said they backed the question, while 33 percent were opposed and 18 percent said they were unsure.
  2. Don't tell me you're one of those people that think this should be "an Hispanic man," are you?
  3. I'm not sure why a few folks keep trying to say Trump supporters "have an issue" with this. That couldn't be further from the truth. From what I can gather, they are all optimistic that every tidbit of information will become public, and that anyone who is guilty of the crimes that appear to have occurred will be punished with the strictest penalties available. As you mention, Cernovich has long been working on Epstein. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Epstein has long been a topic of Alex Jones, Qanon, and the alt-right in general. He's been regarded as a disgusting creep who needs to be jailed for years and years. You can find right-wing posts and stories from 10+ years ago about him. Remember "pizzagate?" Jeffrey Epstein is Pizzagate. He's the ring leader of a child exploration ring with connections to wealthy celebrities and politicians. You couldn't make up a better villain for the alt right if you tried.
  4. I, too, have wondered what the average life expectancy of the crosswalk "paddles" is, city-wide. I live near the one on Ravine Street at Warner and it seems to last less than a week every single time it's replaced. It's a bit unnerving how often drivers hit a large, reflective, stationary object that's in a crosswalk, aligned with the double-yellow. We give out drivers' licenses way too easily.

    Racism

    The difference I was hinting at is that your examples are policies that may potentially (and this is debatable) disproportionately impact minorities, but are not inherently, let alone blatantly racist; my example is a blatantly racist policy - it is a group literally charging people different fees based upon their skin color. An idea that is simply preposterous and decidedly un-American in 2019.
  6. Get your tickets before they sell out: Donald Trump and Mike Pence announce rally in Cincinnati https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2019/07/08/donald-trump-cincinnati-rally-president-u-s-bank-arena-aug-1/1678307001/ Both the president and vice president are coming to town. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will rally at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati on Aug. 1, the president's campaign announced on Monday. The "Keep America Great" rally will be the fourth rally the president has held in Cincinnati and 29th in Ohio since he launched his race for president in June 2015.

    Racism

    A rare example of actual racism in 2019: Festival charges double ticket price for 'non-people of colour' https://news.sky.com/story/festival-charges-double-ticket-price-for-non-people-of-colour-11758249 A music and arts festival in Detroit is charging fans different prices depending on their skin colour. The controversial pricing plan has led to one artist pulling out of the event, saying she was "enraged" by the policy. The organisers of the AfroFuture Fest, set for 3-4 August, are charging lower rates for tickets bought by "people of colour" than for "non-people of colour". Early bird tickets for "POC" were $10 and $20 for "Non-POC".
  8. Of course. No one should be immune to punishment for their crimes because of their political views, wealth, nor power. I don't see anyone here making excuses and I hope it doesn't start. Personally, I have faith in this administration to do the right thing and prosecute all those involved to the fullest extent of the law. On a related note - I do get the feeling those on the far left keep bringing up "the political sides of this" is because they anticipate many of the creeps and rapists are likely to be Epstein's liberal pals and they don't want that to reflect poorly upon the Democratic party. If Epstein had been a lifelong Republican, these same folks would be abusing this story to attack all Republicans.
  9. Which candidate is most likely to pick up all 12 of Swalwell's supporters?
  10. The amount of spin needed to turn the Epstein story into an anti-Trump one is beyond dizzying. This sicko is a lifelong friend of the Clinton's, a Democrat donor, and his address book reads like a who's who of liberal elite - celebrities and politicians alike. There are certainly some powerful people hoping he doesn't rat them out (how many times was Bill Clinton on that private jet to his island again? 20?), but Trump isn't among them. Not to mention, Trump went so far as to ban Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago years ago and gleefully called authorities to tell all he could when Epstein was first arrested. Epstein Sex Slave Lawyer: Donald Trump 'No Way Involved In Any Untoward Activity' https://radaronline.com/exclusives/2016/04/jeffrey-epstein-sex-slave-lawyer-donald-trump-accusations/ Donald Trump once barred child molester Jeffrey Epstein from his famed Mar-a-Lago club after the presidential candidate caught him hitting on young girl, RadarOnline.com has learned...
  11. What a great event on the 4th. I wish I could have been there to see it in person. You know the haters are really stretching when the only thing they can find to criticize is a single time, during an hour long speech, that Trump lost his place and read the wrong line... Meanwhile, even the mainstream media can't help but give praise: Trump celebrates US might, avoids politics in rousing July 4 speech https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-producer-president-makes-july-4th-own-show-200916773.html Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump sang the praises of the US military and American heroes of the past two and a half centuries Thursday, skirting politics in a rousing Independence Day speech in Washington... Combat aircraft, including the rarely-seen B2 stealth bomber, flew overhead as Trump scrolled through myriad events of US history, from groundbreaking inventions to battlefield victories. He drew cheers of "USA! USA!" from an enthusiastic rain-soaked audience of tens of thousands on the National Mall in Washington.
  12. You say "Get away with it" as if something wrong was done here. From the article: If you ignore lawful orders from a police officer for several minutes, and then open your door and point a gun at them - the situation is probably not going to end well. Unless there's more to this story than meets the eye, this seems pretty open and shut.
  13. We should demand an apology from Obama - he was bordering on white supremacist territory here. Next month, that 21 star flag will be considered offensive, and by this time next year that flag in the middle will, as well:
  14. This is, perhaps, the dumbest example yet of political correctness running completely and totally amok. I'm genuinely shocked that people in actual positions to make decisions were somehow convinced that the early 13 star American flag is racist and offensive. When folks on the far left starting tearing down Robert E. Lee statues, some on the right, including myself, jokingly asked "what's next, George Washington statues?" By golly, this is a pretty big step towards making that an actual reality: Nike Nixes ‘Betsy Ross Flag’ Sneaker After Colin Kaepernick Intervenes https://www.wsj.com/articles/nike-nixes-betsy-ross-flag-sneaker-after-colin-kaepernick-intervenes-11562024126
  15. This ended up being nothing more than a machine making a false positive: Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman told the Los Angeles Times that no one had been exposed and that an open-air test for sarin had been negative. “Sometimes machines make mistakes,” Schapelhouman told the Times. “This is a standard package-handling call we’re dealing with.”
