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.

An important point is that congress themselves made some discriminatory rules regarding these countries in the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015. Many past presidents have issued bans on immigration from various countries including Carter with Iran and Obama with Iraq. They were not as broad based as Trump's but were just as discriminatory. My guess is that the courts will not end up ruling on the legality of stopping to issue new visas before the order expired since there will be an issue of standing. I think a longer term ban can pass legal muster if worded properly. The portion which suspends visas already issued I suspect will be struck down by the courts.
Like I have said this will be an issue for the courts. No matter what they decide calling them "so-called" is just out of line and undermines our justice system.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

The facts are that the Trump Administration followed the ruling in a very timely manner.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

+1 I try to defend Trump at times, and explain away his statements and positions, but this one is simply out of line. Perfectly in character, though.

If he is obviously respecting the decision by following it, he is not undermining the justice system.

My thoughts on the fact that so many #nevertrumpers are supporting him now because of the media.

Most of us had 2 reasons why we did not vote for Trump, 1- we didn't like his character and 2 - we didn't trust him to keep to his word to enact conservative policies.

Trump has addressed #2 by making a lot of conservative moves, both in his appointments (cabinet and SC) and in his actions. Most of his actions have been executive actions because legislation takes time, and the Senate is busy working through confirmation hearings (which have been stretched out by Democrats).

The media and the left is doing a good job in addressing the first point because as much as I can't stand Trump, I hate them more (because of the way they are reacting) and in a choice between the two I, and most conservatives, are going with Trump.

I'll also point out that there is an unprecedented amount of criticism of Trump from conservative Republicans who will work with him when he furthers their common goals and have shown themselves willing to stand up to him when he acts stupidly.

This is a very healthy thing for our political system, to have a group of people that stand for certain principals and not a "team". If the Democrats would do the same when people on "their side" do or say stupid things America would truly be on the right path.

I consider you the devils advocate and argumentative.

Calling someone the devil is kind of harsh don't you think? By your rules I don't have to pay attention to the rest of the sentence or the context.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

ridiculous comment. not sure if he is trying to butter putin up for the war on ISIS or something else but it is just a strange comment to make.
