    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    This just in: Trump's latest mission is to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide. And how over to Blind and grtak to tell us why that's bad...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    ... and that someone else needs to pay for it all. The real issues with higher education are two-fold: 1) irresponsible students taking out huge loans and majoring in useless shit that won't help them land a job, and 2) government guarantees on student loans encouraging bad investment, a la...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    He did not say that. What he did say was that there were "fine people" on the side that didn't want old statues taken down. He has, however, specifically called neo-Nazis "repugnant"; he has literally said that "racism is evil", and he has condemned "all types of racism". You can sue anyone for...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Blind, I'll respond in detail later but I'll point out now that half of tour examples literally have nothing to do with race. For example, "Mexican" is a nationality and Islam is a religion.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    First of all, thank you - I appreciate the chance to have an actual discussion instead of an argument. Quote a bit to unpack here so I'll resort to one of my favorite formats: bullet points. I don't dispute the statistics that show hate crimes on the rise. While it may very be true that the...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    What racism and bigotry? Again, please provide some examples because I hear this racism angle often but I've seen virtually no evidence of it. We just had a story about a gay black man who had to hire people to fake-oppress him so I really don't think things are as bad as you seem to imply. In...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Got any evidence? I'm quite socially liberal but Trump hasn't pushed any socially conservative policies. The far left brings an erosion of freedom, high taxes, open borders, infanticide, ignorance of basic biology, and socialism. Atrocious in every way.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    We're all aboard a pendulum that's swinging wildly. Obama swung it pretty hard to the left, the right responded with Trump, now the left is going all-out socialist. Higher and higher swings each time - there are no more moderates left. Seemingly common sense shit gets polarized and attacked...

    Somewhat speechless right now... To echo so many others, thanks for creating this little community of ours. Stay strong Alex - takes a hell of a lot of courage to have fought as hard as you have been and to face what you're facing right now. Not to sound all cliche and cheesy but you really are...

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    The whole internet speed thing is a weak grasp at a little straw and I can't even take it seriously. JP Morgan and Citi each have over 200k employees in the city and they seem to all be online. NYSE seems to get by, as do all the other huge banks, financial institutions, insurance companies...

    They're not funding the business. That money, for lack of a better way to describe it, doesn't exist - NY wasn't going to lose what they never had. They simply wouldn't gain that money through corporate tax, although they would get more revenue through other means than they will now that Amazon...

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    a) a tax break isn't a "cost" b) you're making wild assumptions c) still might be worth 25k jobs and everything that goes along with that

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    You seem to be mixing up actual cost and opportunity cost. NY wasn't going to hand over $3b to Jeff Bezos - they were just going to charge $3b less tax than they would anyone else. The upside to this loss in potential tax revenue would have been 25k jobs and billions in investments into the...

    No, AOC actively cheered this decision by Amazon. Because why would you want to create 25k jobs in your city?

    LeVeL's UK trip 2019

    Swansea - basically just driving past it on our way from Bath to Pembrokshire Coast National Park. Newcastle - Hadrien's wall and Victoria tunnel.

    LeVeL's UK trip 2019

    Greetings, FG brain trust! The Mrs and I are heading across the pond in the fall and I've started putting together an itinerary. The plan is to see London, head west past Stonehenge towards Swansea, then north towards Newcastle, then further north to Edinburgh and Glasgow. I also really want to...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    This is incorrect and ruled unconstitutional by SCOTUS. Whatever Congress tries to do legislatively to stop this national emergency declaration could be vetoed by Trump. Not saying that makes it any better, just correcting the info.
