    Rand can't come out and say it, but I'm sure we do more than Russia when it comes to election interference. Maybe Russia bought a few ads. Maybe they leaked emails that showed Hillary Clinton to be the conniving bit*h we already knew she was. The CIA has done far more nefarious things to influence election outcomes, even inciting coups when the results still don't go our way. When Russia reaches that level, wake me up.

    I've lost money at a gambling table, I've had best friends not show up for birthday parties, and last March I had to euthanize one of the smartest, most loyal pets I've ever had, but nothing —I say nothing— feels worse than . . . WET SOCKS ON MY FEET.

    I wonder if I can sue the city for $5,000 if someone damages or steals my property, $100,000 if a home invader injures me while attempting to rob me, or $1,000,000+ if I am killed by a criminal due to being unable to access the tools necessary to defend myself in time. (okay well maybe my family would have to handle that last lawsuit)

    My grandfather was likely heavily Seminole indian. North Florida roots. Technically I shouldn't be getting sunburnt to a crisp the moment I step outdoors. I owe that to my grandmother. See, my grandfather married the whitest woman in the world and basically screwed up any of those native American genes that might have been passed down.

    If you can prove citizenship to vote, it makes you suspicious. No one should go through that much effort to vote. I mean, a driver's license? You mean to tell me you learned to drive just so you can vote? I call bullsh*t. Driving is racist anyway.

    Calling it now. He/she is the only one of them that gets re-elected. The others should probably stop watching liberal media because they just resigned over something that was last month's outrage. Catch up, snowflakes.

    Hmm. Maybe. I would think they are also hurt by having a physical presence and paying taxes while a huge online company like Amazon can offer the same goods cheaper since they don't have to factor sales tax. People walk in your store, look at an item, and say, "Hmm. I can get that a lot cheaper online." And they walk out without buying anything (from you). Running a brick and mortar store these days is like 'trying it before buying it' and they ain't buying from you. Kind of like tariffs in a way. If I want to try to sell to you, I get punched in the face. But if you want to sell to me, you get a pat on the back. One of us is gonna lose the will to run a business, and it's probably gonna be the one who keeps getting punched in the face. Ideally, no one should be getting punches to the face or pats on the back and the best business would win.

    Indeed. That's the way I see it. This ruling pretty much puts us back where we started. My biggest concern is that Congress is now going to want to put their grubby hands all over laws to make the Fed government come up with a standardized national sales tax. I don't want to pay the same thing as California in sales tax here in Georgia. But to make it fair, it would have to be the same. (which I'm sure our state level critters at the GA general assembly would LOVE). I'm sure the Feds would want their cut of the sales tax, too, for their troubles.:rolleyes:

    Even better, they could donate to causes/campaigns directly, instead of having a union that represents them give to candidates to represent them. Lots of middle men could be cut out of the equation entirely. I think that is what they are afraid of. Too many union leaders have made a living off of taking your money across the street and handing it to someone else.

    Rare. I can think of a few cases. Before the US entered WW2, FDR met Churchill on a ship out at sea. Then there was the Yalta Conference, which was 3 leaders. I wouldn't say it's normal. I wouldn't say it's necessarily bad, either. I will say that it's extremely rare that 1 on 1 meetings happen with "enemies". That's probably never happened in US history until Trump, and it's damned ballsy. Especially since Trump knows what the media will say about him for doing this particular meeting.

    I still can't wrap my head around it, either. Seems like the consequences would be the same as raising minimum wage. If you pay someone money for doing nothing, it actually seems like it would be WORSE than paying them more than they're worth.

    Not sure why populism is such a dirty word. If you don't use populism to an extent, you won't even get elected. Hell, they said the Tea Party was a bunch of populists and Rand Paul rode the Tea Party wave into office. To get any political clout, you have to give the people what they want. The real dilemma lies in trying to convince them to change what they want. Populism is not code word for racial bigotry or whatever bull**** they want to say it is. It's just what you blame the situation on when you realize your opponent has more support than you. Like some villain reveal at the end of a Scooby Doo episode: I could have won, if not for those meddling populists.

    Well if they're home, they're not buying stuff in Germany. Yes I'm aware that's a bit of a broken window fallacy but the troops living overseas spend a lot of their money overseas. It's probably a minimal impact, but a part of it. I know there's a lot of towns/small cities in the USA next to major military installations that would probably shrivel up and blow away if the bases shut down. I wonder if that goes the same way for Europe. Be interesting to see just how much they benefit economically from the presence of tens of thousands of Americans going on leave for the weekends.

    I've suggested many times we should do/say what it takes to get into office and then do whatever we want once we get there. If broken promises equaled political downfall, there wouldn't be any calls for term limits because only a few would even make it through a single term. It does require you to set aside your morality for a moment with the understanding that you're basically lying to people but, I'm gonna say it's a case where the means justify the ends. Run on a pro-war, police state platform and then once you're in office, call all the troops home and end all federal grants issued to militarize police. I'm more than willing to bet that most people who voted you into office will agree with you without even realizing you changed. Either that, or they have to admit they were duped, and that's not easy for a lot of voters to swallow. Voters tend to be followers more than critical thinkers.

    The age thing might actually work in his favor. Look at it from the opposite side: If you're a democrat, are you gonna confirm someone who will be there for 40 years or someone who might be out in 10-15?

    Not sure I follow you. Here's a moment of honesty, and an example. For the most part, I think we here at RPF 'get along' despite relatively minor differences in beliefs. But if SHTF and we have to head to survival camps, I don't think everyone here would make it into mine. Hell, for one, I'd be worried that some folks would be at the gate waving everyone else inside regardless of who they are or what they believe. That's not to say that I wouldn't be happy to have you set up a survival camp across the street or borrow a cup of sugar if times get rough. And if someone came in and tried to mess up our s*it, I'd be happy to band together and drive them off. But, y'all ain't sleeping in my bed.

    I think he's calling them out on the hypocrisy. AF knows humans are tribal. —Human nature and all that. There's a difference when drumming up this false utopian viewpoint that multiculturalism is good and that smashing together various groups of diverse backgrounds and beliefs isn't going to lead to tension and strife, and then going out and hypocritically voting along racial/cultural lines while trying to promote elitist "holier than thou" attitudes like they're above it all. Frankly, it's gotten stale. The leftist kumbaya club just as tribal as anyone else. Only they try to pretend like they aren't.

    It's almost as if they've decided that being a peace candidate/administration will bring them more votes. —Not saying there's a suddenly a lack of defense contractor shareholders who aren't going to bring pressure to bear. But, it's nice to see that again. Whether it amounts to much, only time will tell. I'll be looking forward to the Trump-Putin summit on July 16th(right date?). The sanctions are just stupid, though, and should be lifted. More like a formality at this point I think, than any real economic punishment.

    How does that work if I never had a contract with the union as a (potential) employee? Say, I go to work with the railroad. The union calls me up, congratulates me, and tells me I've got 90 days to join the railroad worker's union. My response: "I'm sorry? Who are you? Were you sitting in during the job interview? I must have missed you being there." My agreement is with the employer. Not with the union. The union has no say in my terms of employment, much less any right to demand anything from me, if I never agreed to anything they put forward.
