I have no doubt that Trump and Francoise were right. But, sometimes a filter is required to maintain some degree of credibility in other matters.

I understand it.. I'm the same way - I don't have time for being politically correct and worrying about how someone might take what I say when it comes to doing business. I get straight to the point, and say what needs saying.

The language is impolite, that is unfortunate.

The question is of course at the heart of any immigration policy.


The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

One problem with this (and I am pretty strong against illegal immigration) is that how do you decide which countries are good and which are not? Who decides?

What makes a country good vs bad?

maybe 50-60 years ago, people would say immigrant from Taiwan is bad. Now, maybe (I hope) they would say they are good.

The thing is there are limits.

Reasonable people can discuss what they are, but they do exist.

We can take rich and poor, weak and strong, but there has to be a reasonable plan and is has to be enforced.

The thing about immigration is that those a country allows to immigrate should be from countries that have some cultural things in common. I don't know what Thailand was like 50 years ago, but today Thailand, while different in culture, has quite a lot in common with American culture. Thai people are fully capable of assimilating into american society and still maintaining their own culture. Likewise, 50 or 60 years ago Americans probably wouldn't have been able to assimilate into Thai society, but today they likely could.

Well... everyone except people from Michigan....

but people from Somalia for instance, have absolutely nothing in common with American culture or society. The difference is night and day, and most Somalians have no desire to assimilate. So they should not be allowed into the country.

I wasn't thinking of you when I wrote that. I was thinking about the ones that move here when they retire.. when we see an old man about 5' 6" tall and 250 pounds, wearing a plaid shirt, striped shorts, snow white little knobby legs, black socks and brown shoes, with sunglasses on, with an old woman who is taller than he is, wearing a floral moomoo, both with voices that would crack ice.. we say.... "yep.. they're from Michigan"...

I think we can all agree on what kind of hole DPRK is.

Did you hear him say it? Nope. Any video? Nope. Not yet anyway.

LBJ said things just as bad on a regular basis. But back then we weren't a nation of pussies with chips on our shoulders.

cnn has has the word Mr. Trump was alleged to have said on the screen non-stop since he allegedly said it.

In the rare case where they aren't talking about it you can still read the word at the bottom of the screen.

I think there is a chance that this fake news will cause people to think this guy is a liar.

Sad.

Sounds like you're saying, "he didn't say that. But if he did, it's because he isn't a pussy."

Yes I'm sure the whole world is just making this up. His approval rating's at what, now? 36 percent or some ****? His disapproval's at more than half and has been for about a year now?
