    Many times, however, those affairs don't come to light until well after the election or whatever political initiation takes place. You could pass over someone with a couple of divorces and a couple of affairs for what is later revealed to be someone who "cheated" by molesting children. You are making a philosophical, omniscient statement and I get that, but in practicality you are relying on things coming to light with the coincidental timing of a Hollywood movie, with the serendipitous reveal of the affair or other moral failing prior to votes being cast. Without regard to policies --- serious question --- do you actually respect Hillary more, since she has stood by her man even after his admitted affairs, some pretty strong allegations of mutual abuse, and the history of her threatening women who brought forward allegations of sexual misconduct?

    As far as a serious answer, there is missing information. Is this a boss with no one above them? What I mean is, is it just a direct employer? If so, the only thing that needs to be done is to make sure your friend has another means to support themselves if the boss has to disappear and close up shop by default. Is this a boss within a company? If so, then it's likely they've had to go through all the HR checks and balances. If they still made it through, then it's really not your friend's place to nose in and second-guess things. It could be seen as targeted harassment. The underlying question is why it's still at "might"? It sounds like it's a suspicion rather than an indisputable fact.

    So really, if you look at it, you're looking for a candidate who doesn't get caught. If someone cheats once, but gets caught, they're no longer worthy. If they cheat 100 times, and manage to keep it hushed up, it's not a matter of public record and it magically does not affect their ability to govern.

    This test doesn't seem to take into account that there actually can be people who have people out to get them, or who have vision issues that cause them to see auras or weird distortions for medical reasons. Not surprised.

    Technically I'm not 100% certain if it's ever been filed and such. I just... left. It's been almost 8 years to the day, though, so I would consider that enough time to be able to say we're divorced :p It was not a good situation. I know some folks who aren't divorced, and I know others who take to it like it's the national passtime.

    My scenario does not include a legal child, as the person applying is an income earning citizen. The illegal person is factored in, making it easier for a household with a higher income to artificially lower that income and qualify for benefits. Others have mentioned hospitals not being able to turn away people for stabilizing service, which is Federal. You mentioned "most" in your post, not "all," rendering the thread title misleading. Others have mentioned public school, which is not just a benefit for the children involved, any moreso than free lunches/breakfasts and qualifying for food assistance exclusively benefit children. Forged documentation allows illegals to apply for and sometimes receive benefits. None of these things are free.

    You asked me for a link then proved my point lol Same in the case where the kids get benefits: You don't think the illegals in the family eat some of that food they help the family qualify for?

    So... "ANY" in the title is misleading, then? Btw, while not directly eligible, illegals do benefit from SNAP.

    1. One of the headlines uses dystopian. 2. There are language algorithms that test for the appropriate language to use for your audience (it usually does not include words like "pessimistic" which take up a lot of space and are not at the appropriate reading level). 3. Most written news stories come from a few sources, with a little bit of juggling or editing to make them fit whatever newspaper or magazine they'll be shoe-horned into. 4. Most of these same written news sources find their genesis in the pockets of people who are more likely to lean towards Hillary this election. This means that they'll paint Trump as dark (which is, not coincidentally, a word that is short, easy to understand, and synonymous with "evil") and try very hard to use words like "uplifting" and "unifying" for Hillary's speech. If she fails, then they'll pick someone else. Expect to see a rising star crowned that isn't even on the ticket being fawned over.

    Hypothetical situation: A citizen of the US is the head of their household. They have five illegals or, at least non-citizens living with them. That citizen makes a certain amount of money at their low-level job. When they go to apply for assistance, they apply as the head of a household of six. You see, income from illegals does not count. More directly, though: Center for Immigration Studies Percent of Households Using Welfare by Nativity and Legal Status in 2012: Illegal Immigrant Households (Full Model)

    Um, are you serious? There are entire classes of seizures characterized as seeming to be laughter or ending with smiling or smirking. Lord I hope you're not ACTUALLY in the medical field. I do agree it's a non-story in and of itself, and the slow-motion and looping of the video are stupid.

    Tourette tics are not sudden random seizures. They are fairly consistent tics, a symptom which overlaps with other neurological disorders. The reason that Tourette symptoms wind up being dismissed as "nervous habits" is because they are repeated and fairly predictable. Think of them along the lines of OCD behaviors, or similar repeated motions. The more stressed, the more marked the issues become. Like I said, though, you don't have to have TS for that to happen. I have a few tics and habits that overlap. She has had several seizure-like episodes over time, and has a history of falls. There's evidence of rapid vision changes, headaches, and so on. This is part of the folly of having most of our candidates be of a certain age range; there are a number of potential culprits, most of them age-related. As to the idea of her making that particular gesture as a joke, it's possible... just not probable given the entire picture her behavior and health seem to have painted over the past several years.

    If I asked you what a potential first lady was going to say in her speech, you'd have an easy time coming up with a list, and you'd be right for pretty much every speech recent enough to be picked at. My husband's more than a candidate; he's also so wonderful, so caring, such a good father. He keeps his word. He wants to make the world a better place for his family. He's going to be amazing as President. blah blah blah blah The word for word part mostly finds its roots in every speech writer using the same dumb phrases. It's along the same line as how most resumes use vague, interchangeable bullet points. Did you know almost everyone is organized? Motivated? A self-starter? I know the initial claim is that she wrote the speech herself, but that seems unlikely. It isn't that she's stupid --- she's actually highly intelligent, imo --- but that speeches like this seldom get released without going through the wringer and being scrutinized by "professionals." Now they can add running the speech through a plagiarism detection algorithm to their list as well.

    Without a value judgement on whether or not it's a correct assumption, those who support Trump on the site do so because they believe one of his characterizations (outsider, Conservative, "tells it like it is" etc.) is genuine. A few are the "better than Hillary" sort, but that doesn't lend itself to affirmative support, just an occasional comment. Hillary has never tried to be an outsider. She's branded herself as caring and concerned and for the oppressed and free stuff (but not as much as Bernie! see what they did there?). It's less likely to make anyone on here enthused, even the few that went off to support Bernie. Yes. There were some.

    Holy talking points, Batman. The "field of 17" included people who were out of it in very short order... even before the first votes were cast. That "field of 17" label is ridiculously dishonest and unnecessary, but it pops up everywhere. He got primary votes in a field of twelve, which dwindled very rapidly after the first few states. That's a hell of an accomplishment but it had to be inflated by 5 for people to find it even more remarkable, I guess. People cheering a push to scuttle Trump's nomination would not have wound up with a better candidate even if that had succeeded; I don't think a lot of people supported that. Of course, at least letting the votes on processes be heard and counted appropriately would have been nice. It would also be great if light were shone on the issue AND people cared. I don't hold out hope for either thing, and both happening at once is astronomically unlikely. So you ARE watching because you like conventions... weird. Even the people who're there don't look to be enjoying in that much.
