You think he didn't?

Did you seriously just quote Infowars? I'd say that means you just lost the debate by default.

You know why he had to do those Orders? He was too busy trying to be Bi-partisan during the first two years and when that didn't work. They forced his hand to do those orders to get certain things done.

Alex Jones gets all his information from VERY reputable sources...

in the new Joe Rogan podcast he talks about the psychic vampires and the interdimensional communication from the Elite to drain the energy from our youth

... no seriously.

At one simplistic level, good governing is like good parenting. Like the law about wearing a crash helmet on a motorbike; a sunny day on an empty road and you may not want to do it, but you know it makes sense.

^ At last someone has mentioned this clear-cut example of terrible parenting."Let's forget about long-term irreversible harm to the environment of the whole planet. Let's sacrifice that for the short term benefit of the USA."
That's an approach typically taken by commercial companies clamouring for profits, which is why they should be regulated by a government that sees a bigger picture. Unfortunately, Trump is parenting on the Homer Simpson model, "Sure Bart, eat all the candy you want and no need to brush your teeth afterwards. Dental decay is just a scam cooked up by scientists, like global warming."

I think pro-fossil Trump with his scorn for alternative fuels is going to be more damaging, long-term, than his clumsy meddling with the immigration rules.

Why exactly is Sam Harris such a pos? I haven't seen much from him, but he seems pretty reasonable from what I have.

Those two Bill Maher clips are the only videos I've seen from him. Can't say I disagree with anything he said in either one.

He wouldn't bother you if you agree with his views on Islams and Muslims in general.

Whenever him and Bill get together they always get under my skin with inaccurate **** that they say. The worse part is like it's not like they don't talk to Muslims where they can find out accurate information it's just that they like to stay willfully ignorant about certain things.

Here's a specific example, when the topic of the Burqa came up. Their minds are only wrapped around women being forced to wear them and not the fact that the women willingly want to wear them.

Also when they decided to bring up the fact that radical Muslims aren't fringe just because it is such a large number. They are still fringe in comparison to the billion of Muslims around the way. So what if they have a fringe army. When you have billions of people practicing one religion a fringe group of radicals can be larger.
