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.

Quote
The survey found the global median for Muslims opposed to violence in the name of Islam was 72 percent.

Quote
Except Ö well, what about the other 28 percent? There are 1.3 billion Muslims on this planet. If 28 percent of them support violent jihad, thatís 364 million Muslims who condone the murder of apostates, blasphemers, gay people, cartoonists, loose women, and possibly everyone godless enough to attend the Boston marathon.

In the United States, the picture is only marginally better. Eight out of ten U.S. Muslims say itís not cool to strap a bomb to your chest and kill a bunch of kuffar. But two out of ten say thatís dandy. There are 2.6 million Muslims living in the U.S. Ö x 19 percent  Ö Yep, almost half a million of them give suicide bombers a big thumbs-up.

We are not discussing suicide bombers or if you approve or disapprove of what they do. So I will ask again. What percentage of 1.6 - 2 billion Muslims do you feel are terrorist.

Who decided what we are discussing?  Define terrorist and I'll see if I have a feeling about it.

Muslims are very peaceful people, especially the highly radicalized ones that plan to murder.
Lets focus on facts.
How many Muslims are there and in your view how many are terrorist or want to kill Americans?
You are both focusing on the wrong thing. It is time for a bit of perspective here. Trump did not ban all Muslims. For that matter he did not ban ANY Muslims. He placed a 90-120 day moratorium on admitting people of any religion coming from 7 countries judged by a previous admiistration to be havens for terrorism. Had there been a country which is a haven for Christian or Buddhist or Jewish terrorism as a threat to the US they would have likely been included as well. Even this measure is only temporary to allow time for a review of procedures. Are the procedure currently in place adequate? Possibly, but that is certainly a judgement call and the new President can and should make a new judgement on it. Making a temporary moratorium is reasonable. On the other hand, some porions of this order were extreme. It probably should not have included those who were already issued visas. It seems that this is the only aspect struck down by the courts as well. The states challenged his ability to provisionally suspend an existing visa. Trump is going to kick and scream over this. By doing so he distracts from the fact that the vast majority is still in place. That may be where he wanted it to end up anyhow.
Feelings don't care about your facts

I asked a question about one thing and you answered something different.

Terrorism is, in its broadest sense, the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear, in order to achieve a political, religious, or ideological aim.

This has nothing to do with what I asked. Leave the ban to the courts.

I have no idea what percentage of the world Muslim population have already commited acts of terrorism.

Anyone see the Sean Spicer bit on SNL? If you didn't you should, best skit in years. I'll bet even Trump laughed at that one!

I understand it has nothing to do with what you asked, that is exactly my point. You have stated that you would rather be discussing the substance of what he does yet when I discuss exactly that you say to leave it to the courts. Instead you want to discuss what percentage of Muslims are terrorists.

So how do you talk about any real issue when the standard response here is you are just spewing the liberal BS?
I want to know how he is going to replace ACA with something better. I want to know how is going to eliminate IS from the face of the earth. I see nothing in his tweets or EO about these serious issues. His tweets are about attacking those that disagree with him.
Honestly never intended on getting into political conversation here, I swore that off About 3 months ago.
If you think my responses to serious inquires on any political topic has been to accuse you of spewing liberal bs you need to look back at my posts in this and other threads.

Again this was in response to anther comment. If someone makes a comment like this I ask questions to see what they mean instead of assuming.
Muslims are very peaceful people, especially the highly radicalized ones that plan to murder.

He's putting together all those things now. He gave the military 30 days to come up with a strong plan how to defeat isis. The Republicans are in middle of crafting an alternative to the ACA.
