It was boring. To be fair, even though I won, there isn't much information out there on illegal immigration on Canada because it's such a non issue there.

And my main point was that it's harder to immigrate to other 1st world countries than it is to immigrate to the US.

Of course. I win about 100% of arguments about 70% of the time.

Edit: Except that one time I lost an argument in the 70th percentile.

I will have to google this, I still don't know what you are talking about.

She still would have been better in that area than a straight up climate change denier though.

Oh yes I do remember that and some BLM members had their panties in a bunch over those statements from the 90s. The thing that bothered me was how she ended up treating them and kind of brushing them off it shows that her opinions haven't really changed much just only on the surface to get those black votes.

But god damn I just get so sick of seeing people that don't even try. Because it's so much easier just to talk ****.
If you get so sick of seeing people not even try then why do you bother coming to this thread if you feel like that's the general vibe in here?

You are doing just like you say. It's easy to come in here and talk **** about the same people you don't like instead of sharing your opinion on a specific topic that comes up.

Hoping it'll change? I don't know. It's not just this thread, it's the general discussion it's self.

I have shared my opinion and actually discussed things, but yeah, you're right. I essentially end up talking **** on people that talk ****.

That's the thing you have to come to realize when talking about politics not much is going to change the other person's perspective/opinion. Very rarely does it happen so if that's your intent that you are definitely in the wrong topic of discussion.

Each person says their side/opinion and then you move on because you eventually get to a point in the conversation where you just have to agree to disagree. I have done this numerous times talking to Trump supporter friends on FB. They respect my ability to have a conversation without having to dive into insults.

Was watching the CNN series last night about the 80s and the whole stock market, Wall Street boom where lots of white collar folks got mega-rich on the backs of the blue collar working class. Trump was featured a number of times and the dude back then came off just as arrogant, unappologetic, entitled, and as pompous as he does today.


I could go on......
You should watch him on the Apprentice. The guy had more money than God, and any time a former winner, or someone who had made something of themselves came back on the show he ALWAYS said something along the lines of "This guy/girl made a fortune but I get nothing" with a pointed look and a crooked smile at the person. He tried to make it look like it was in fun, but really he was serious, you could tell. It was a real case of "I MADE you. You OWE me!" He was only short of putting out his hand expectantly. ****.

I have nightmare visions of Trump with the briefcase with the codes going "You're all FIRED!"

And we are.


The Apocalypse will resume right after these messages from Trump Realty and Undertakers Corporation.
