If political campaigns are anything like the movies, then it was a wise choice.

I think it's even simpler. Movement from left to right is perceived as movement forward, most likely due to our direction of writing.

Well ja that's the source of the cinematographical standard. It's backed up by Arabic readers being the opposite in that sense.

There's a big fat DUH lurking amongst the last half dozen posts.

So Nunes has lost a boatload of credibility. Maybe him and Bannon can share a room on the "getta outta the Trump bandwagon" cart?

I bet that's hell on Japanese directors.

Yeah but I mean she was supposed to be left, wasn't she? Democrat? Left? No? Am I getting this wrong? Should it not be pointing to the left (which, I realise, would be essentially pointing backwards, not good) or at least up?

I realize where you were coming from, I was showing why the arrow pointing to the left wouldn't have been a good move.

Russia and Iran are pretty pissed about the red line being crossed and for good reason

With Trump in charge I feel like the evil empire and I'm rooting for the ragtag other side

Or maybe I should say even more the evil empire

He got the US out of the war by helping win it, otherwise they might have been in it (including a costly invasion of Japan) and by authorising the development of the atomic bomb, which was the main factor in ending at least the war in the Pacific.

Are you really going to be such a dick as to deny FDR his legacy? Have you nothing else to do?
:rolleyes:

FDR authorized the development of the atomic bomb which ushered in the era of nuclear warfare and nuclear proliferation. He never mentioned the Holocaust in any public speech. Did not sign anti-lynching legislation. He sign Executive Order 9066 which lead to the forced relocation and incarceration of 110,000 Japanese into interment camps. Quite a legacy. Why, who would want to deny that?

Thanks. I was tempted to respond with more detail, but what's the point? I'm sure every reasonable person who read my post understands what I meant.

Everyone knew what you meant. FDR made America great again, the way it was before before 1929. And FDR is responsible for American exceptionalism, by getting us out of the war. See FDR was the commander and chief of US armed forces that defeated the Nazis, thus consequently getting us out of the war. I apologize for mentioning the Allies, British Spies, and the restistance because that subtracts from American exceptionalism. FDR MAGA!

next level partisan hackery on display, you learn as much as is convenient for you

On the anti-lynching legislation for instance:

"I did not choose the tools with which I must work, had I been permitted to choose them, I would have selected quite different ones. But I've got to get legislation passed by Congress to save America. The Southerners occupy strategic places on most of the Senate and House committees. If I come out for the anti-lynching bill now, they will block every bill I ask Congress to pass to keep America from collapsing. I just can't take that risk"

-FDR
