Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

The infographic put out as public rhetoric by the Obama administration is inadequate to convince me that the current procedures do the trick. We have no way of knowing how it works in the real world. We do not really know if it is as strict as it is made to look and definitely not if it is effective. Either way that is a matter of opinion and left to the executives judgement.

The threat of those already in the country is a concern but is not relevant at all to the debate over refugees.

I agree with you that the rollout was done poorly and that it should not have included those already approved etc.
How do you prove it is working? Is the lack of terrorist acts by refugees any indication it is working?

I love him and I think he's pretty objective. I also enjoy Tucker very much! Sean is the opposite end of CNN.

Tucker is to much of a geek for me and all he is about is gotcha questions.
Neil Cavuto seems pretty fair also but IMHO O'Reilly is the fairest and isn't afraid of having intelligent people who disagree with him on.

@JTZ i think you asked earlier if there were any terrorists from the 7 countries in the US.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2614043
That the Iraqi terrorists were in bowling green is not confidence inspiring either. That said, it is most definitely something difficult to prove that it is working. Much comes from from the impression of priorities. Many conservatives feel that the Obama administration was more concerned about admitting refugees that about security. Their refusal to connect terror to radical Islam is a large cause of that. Therefore I have difficulty understanding a real argument against this temporary moratorium in order to have the new administration review the current procedures and possibly improve them. As I have said many times, I do not support the way it was implemented.

You can tweet what you want from your Twitter account but RTing from the @POTUS handle about Ivanka and Nordstrom is not Ok.

I was thinking that but it doesn't seem so. Not every tweet gets it.

The soft bigotry of low expectations
Both sides with their heads buried in the sand.

The numbers split along party lines, with nearly 9 in 10 Republicans saying the Trump administration is truthful, compared with more than 3 in 4 Democrats who say the opposite.

What else is news? Do you expect anything different from a politician? They say whatever suits their agenda at the moment.
Until it is Trump. Then everyone is up in arms.
