The Dems ARE the party of illegal alients. Trump doesn't need to paint a thing. Everyone sees it.

 

Yet Trump employs many illegal "alients" at his properties throughout the country.

Campaign promise? If he fulfilled his campaign promise, he wouldn't need any appropriations because it would be funded by Mexico's government. Guy is such a piece of work. 

Have you noticed how much help Mexico is giving us by shutting down their southern border?

Yes. Trump has definitely applied pressure to Mexico, which HAS resulted in more "cooperation." Credit where it's due. They still ain't building a wall, but that was more of a wisecrack than a "point."

I always took it as Mexico was going to pay for the wall with such things as tariffs. Trump just convinced them to do what he wanted by threatening tariffs. He also got a much more favorable deal with Mexico (and Canada) as far as trade goes.

It was a great political chant though. But yes. Results are results. In this particular instance, Trump has been effective. Based on the very little I've read, the USMCA appears to be moderately better for US than was NAFTA. Once again; credit where it's due.

As far as illegals killing Americans, it doesn't tug my heartstrings any more than an American murdering an American. If a family member was killed by someone, I wouldn't give two blanks about the killer's country of origin. My family member would be dead whether it was Jose or Brad.

 

If the name Brad feels too vanilla you could always change it to B-Rad.

This question has been posed twice now and it would be impossible to answer without a degree of grandiosity. It's a gotcha question; BUT

 

I live in Las Vegas. My social circle is almost certainly different from yours. I work as a HS basketball referee in every part of the city, but am primarily assigned to North Las Vegas(Rancho, Bonanza, Clark, etc.) I work for a sportsbook in a predominantly black neighborhood. My girlfriend is black as has been the case with every S/O. (Yeah. I have a black friend.)

 

I attended elementary school in one of the "least diverse" sections of Washington D.C. 


My "mentor" growing up was my HS basketball coach who more like a father figure than simply a coach. He exposed me to the black church scene and while an atheist, I maintain strong relationships with the people I met to this day.

 

I spent most of my 20's in "black" clubs because there's a certain musical vibe that fits my preferences/lifestyle. I'm quite sure this was/is not your scene, which is great. Different strokes for different folks. 

 

As I said, it's neither good or bad. It does, however, give me a different and more complete perspective as it pertains to the black "community." In a utopian society, no such community would exist, but we're dealing in reality and not fantasy.

 

While this is ENTIRELY too much information, YOU asked the question so I chose to answer. 

 

I'm not part of the group outraged by every move Trump makes. I don't hang on every (very often stupid) thing he says. I give him credit when it's due. What he does and says has little to no effect on my life. I don't believe his policies have drastically altered the course of the economic trajectory, but the economy IS strong, which directly impacts my life. That's a good thing.

 

BUT. The tokenism displayed in that Superbowl ad offended my senses. Pandering is nothing new to politics, but the theatrical use of minorities is clearly something Trump engages in frequently. I'm sure you view it through a different prism, which as is the case with all things, PERFECTLY fine.

 

And with that, the thread should return to discourse and not the personal life or experiences of LSHMEAB. 

 

 

 


ive got a better jumpshot than you and all the Migos albums.  
 

how about dat

You didn’t have to take it. Trump explained it when asked by Hannity in a national interview prior to the election. He specifically said Mexico was NOT going to literally send us a check to build the wall. I only wish Bernie and the Dems were this honest when it comes to their massive tax hikes!

Ha. Now that is a terrific reference if you're referring to Malibu's Most Wanted. It wasn't great, but it had it's moments. His show (Jamie Kennedy Experience) was much better, but nothing will ever touch Da Ali G show. Ever.

I made the mistake thinking you were an original thinker.

 

My bad.

 

But hey...it was fun while it lasted.

I wouldn't go this far. One glib statement doesn't make a poster. I don't agree with him on a lot of things, but at least he engages in honest discussion. He is willing to concede points and offer intelligent rebuttals. As mainly a reader, I think we should encourage more posts from people like him. Look at all the other left leaning posters. They don't really offer anything other than TDS. Outside of K9 who almost never posts anymore, they're all dinks.

 

Just my opinion.

That's exactly how Trump meant it, any rational person gets it.

Libtards aren't rational, they are driven by rage.

They don't care about Iran, Ukraine, people being held at the border etc.

They only say they care about these things because it fuels their trump induced rage narrative

They are selfish and self loathing and are on a never ending quest to project their misery on others.

I'm still not sure why we listen to people who think it's important to point out the number of times Trump sniffles during a speech.

 

But Q-tibs gonna Q-tibs.
