Does every post here have to be a debate starter. Follow through with what?

CV: I'm against killing people. It's bad.

FL and BL: What if it was suddenly deemed not bad? Would you still be against it?

*sigh*

If every single post requires that the OP must be willing to carry on a ridiculous back and forth debate over hypotheticals or "what ifs" - I'm out.

Once the debate has started then shouldn't you see yourself out of the conversation though?

Can I have some research from experts over the years that shows that framing immigration issues through an economical lens creates positive perceptions of immigrants?

Fair enough. Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Why are you willing to banter and have nuanced back and fourth discussions about movies, but when it comes to a poli-sci topic it's all whining? The precedent comment made by Frown is a pretty legitimate concern. Do you disagree that if people are incentivized to support a cause for the good it does financially rather than socially, than when it stops being good for your pocket it will lose a lot of needed support?

Trump made an interesting "left-turn" last week (no pun intended) in regards to working with Chuck Schumer and Pelosi on raising the debt ceiling, helping the hurricane victims and pushing for some kind of DACA Act. Anyone got thoughts on these developments?
