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.

"This is Trump's goal when he uses targeted language & threatens elected officials who don't agree w/ his political agenda," she said. "It's authoritarian behavior. The President is sowing violence. He's creating an environment where people can get hurt & he claims plausible deniability."

Apparently, this is the speech as that was happening.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

9/11 compensation bill finally passes. Why have the R's historically been opposed to this? They can give billions in tax cuts to wealthy corporations but can't take care of our hero's?

I'm not saying I disagree with you. But that is a false equivalence. Tax cuts aren't "giving away"

Where did I say "giving away"? Wealthy corporations received billions in tax cuts this last time. Who "gave" it to them? Should I say voted to give them the take cuts?

No, I don't think you can compare the two. You could just say that they are _____ for not caring for these people.  The fact that they want to cut people's taxes is irrelevant

When you say we don't have the money for our hero's but have the money to give tax cuts to wealth corporations it sure is relevant. When you only have x amount of dollars you need to prioritize. How they rank those priorities sure is relevant.

This was my original point. You don't have to have money to cut taxes. It starts the other way. You first decide how much to tax, and then with what money you have, you choose how to spend it. But I do agree, (without really looking into the matter), that we should first spend the money taking care of these people before spending on many other things. I just don't think cutting taxes is considered spending money, even if Democrats and the media speak in those terms

You're not "giving" a tax break, you're choosing to stop taking quite so much money from them.

To put it another way - should we say that we should have a special 9/11 tax on everyone in the country? Not sure everyone would be quite as enthusiastic, despite how good a cause it is.

I am curious, by the way - while the first responders are indeed heros, are any other first responders who die in the line of duty less worthy?

He seems to have AOCís comprehension issue. She didnít like the amazon deal because she thought the city was ďgivingĒ amazon tens of billions. In reality it just meant that the city wasnít TAKING as much as they could as incentive for Amazon to come to New York.

Lets see if I understand your logic. Cutting someone's taxes is not giving them a tax break?

I modified slightly to make the point a bit more powerful (and inflammatory).

When you want to make it sound like you're doing someone a huge favor, you're giving them a tax break. From another perspective, you're agreeing to stop beating them up and taking quite as much of their lunch money. What a gift!

Lets continue this logic. Should we have a special wall tax on everyone in the country to build the wall Mexico is paying for?
