  1. I understand this and mostly share this view in many ways. But my question was more about procedure as far as Trump's promise to have Mexico pay for the wall. Is he full of shit? Can he tear up NAFTA without the aid of Congress?
  2. Trump recently gave a speech that outlined his proposed actions during his first 100 days as President. Among his promises was the creation of the End Illegal Immigration Act. This act would fund the building of the wall with USA taxpayer $. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-outlines-agenda-for-first-100-days-in-gettysburg-210608631.html Here's my question to you folks. Trump says he will immediately renegotiate NAFTA. Obviously, this is how he claims Mexico will pay for the wall. So...in order for Trump to rework the terms of NAFTA......what must happen? Must Congress act to give him permission to opt out of NAFTA, etc? If this is the case will Congress go ahead and back Trump with this? Or will they side with the many USA businesses who currently own manufacturing plants in Mexico? Obviously, I don't think Trump would have a snowballs chance in hell to get the required authorization to rework NAFTA. Please enlighten me if this is not the case. Because if this is the case......then either he doesn't know what he's talking about or he's flat-out lying to us. Thoughts? And thank you!
  3. I brush more than once a day but less than twice. Sometimes before bed im just too damned lazy. I also floss before I brush and I use a Crest Total mouthwash type product. Also...almost daily I use a product called periogen. This product breaks down tartar. I've stopped visiting the dentist 2x a year. I go about once every year and a half. My dentist yells at me for skipping cleanings but then says my teeth look really good lol.
  4. Awsum thread. One morning I decided I'd eat some venison summer sausage that had a bit of jalapeno and cheese in it. Within a few minutes I had this "pressure" in my chest. I started to panic and went to the ER cuz I thought I was having a heart attack. As it turns out the pressure I was feeling was pushing outward. Heart attack symptoms can include downward pressure on the chest. After a battery of tests my Dr. told me I had acid reflux. He handed me a prescription and said all I needed to do was take this one little acid reducing pill once a day for the rest of my life and that i'd be just fine. I looked at him and said "can't i just cure this with diet?" He smiled at me and quietly said "of course u can...do u want the prescription anyway?". I went home and did some super simple research. I started eating foods like apples, bananas, broccoli (alkaline raw foods). After changing my diet....actually about 2 weeks after...my symptoms disappeared. I've been fine ever since. I sometimes wonder why people dont take more responsibility for their own health. Oddly enough I think my DR prlly didnt give me a 100% correct diagnosis. After spending a few hours reading it seems as though I had a raw stomach as well as acid reflux. Anyway....it is cured. The root cause of the problem has been addressed. And it wasn't hard. It was all diet.
  5. I know i've been sort of trolling Trumpsters lately but I'll be 100% serious. Please take it upon yourself to understand why this article is garbage. You owe it to yourself. Several people have already given you a few hints. It is another example of your choice of media attempting to spin certain facts to make them look like something other than what they really are. When you think u have this figured out....go ahead and tell me why Rasmussens latest polls can be as useful as CNN polling. This is your test:)
  6. Ok here is an example of why I don't put much stock in anything Breitbart does. Let us examine this paragraph from the story this OP is based upon: Similarly, Ryan has said that he, too, sees his role as a U.S. lawmaker to be the representative of foreign nationals—and, in particular, foreign citizens of India. In 2013, Ryan said he believes that it’s the job of a U.S. lawmaker to “put yourself in… [the] shoes” of foreign citizens such as “the gentleman from India who’s waiting for his green card.” Go ahead and reread the above. It is quoted from the article. Now what do you think this paragraph is trying to say? What is the purpose of this? Now. Let us examine the entire statement Ryan made that the above paragraph strategically takes bits and pieces of info from: This is the American Dream. This is the American idea. Look, put yourself in another person’s shoes, which if you’re in elected office, that’s what you kind of have to do that almost every single day. The job we have–and what we do is we take different people’s perspectives. The gentleman from India who’s waiting for his green card. The DREAMer who is waiting. We take all these different perspectives. We process it through our values and our morals and our principles. And then we come up with the answer to try and solve this problem. That’s basically what we do in our jobs. Does anyone notice how Breitbart is using partial truths to in fact misrepresent what Ryan actually said?
  7. That's perfect. So if this option becomes available you simply decide to not use it. You can watch and see what happens to those of us who immediately opt in. Like i said......if single payer is such a horrible thing it will destroy itself. If it is a more cost effective way of getting quality care then the results will be obvious.
  8. I apologize for taking so long to reply. Actually I do have the right to voice my displeasure that another country is attempting to influence how my citizens vote. I have. I will. And I will cast my vote in a manner that best exemplifies my position. I completely endorse my country attempting to rig other country's elections if it will benefit my country. Especially if it will continue to weaken Russia. This is the real world. There can only be one super power. I'd rather it be USA instead of Russia. Can i be any more clear than that?
  9. Where the fuck are the #LockHerUp people? Is it possible that both Trump and Hillary will be happy with the results of the election because they both stand to increase their influence and net worth? Awfully strange how the Trump base ignores this thread.
  10. Ok so this is evidence of climate change. Maybe. Maybe not. Sample size matters. But MORE importantly....doesn't a bottle of Boston Lager taste better anyway? BEER ME!
  11. Great idea! I'll be voting Monday. And since u mentioned this i guess i'll try it at several locations. Do you want me to report back to you with the results of my attempts?
  12. Fingers crossed a public option is made available. The majority of the country supports it. So let's get it done. But wait!! It will lead to poorer quality of care u say? That's great! Let a few of us take a chance on that and u can watch us find out for ourselves.
  13. I misspoke or forgot to add the key phrasing. Instead of me saying "monitor them" I should have said "hold them accountable". Armed revolt? Sure. This would be effective if enough decided to partake. It would probably solve things more quickly also. But I'd prefer to use our combined intellect and purchasing power.
  14. If the topic of this thread is indeed true.....it has been an utter failure.
  15. And our govt does indeed subsidize it's own failures with our funds because we do not monitor them. This is our fault. Not some imaginary mythical creature we call our govt. once again......i misunderstand.....lol
