@Brad, I've been a little out of pocket today but didn't want to ignore your post and did want to congratulate you on finding the "New thread" button.

Hillary would have been better for the country than Trump (knowingly only what we knew on election day). Bernie would have been even better but I thought that it would have been too easy to demonize him (among the deplorables) as a "socialist Jew from New York". Among her positions which I think were better:
1. increased minimum wage (I wish she wanted $15/hr like Bernie)
2. support for improving Obamacare (as opposed to Trump's repeal and "replace")
3. taxing the rich, not the poor
4. support for democracy (Even on election day we knew that Trump liked strongmen)
5. I could go on...

Well Texans do give a comparative illusion of civilisation & literacy to the rest of the USA... Like anyone from the Bronx comes across as an intellectually gifted thinker in comparison to "yo average Texan"... So there's that to be considered. Anyway modern day Texas is just a suburb of Mexico, if Trump offered a discount, maybe he could sell it back to Mexico.

@Capt Brad... Upon what foundation do you base this request for "concrete" reasons ? ( nyuk nyuk nyuk ) Surely you want a more solid construction than just "concrete" ? Throw in some reinforcement.. nyuk nyuk nyuk.

@brainbomb

I included that source for the second half of the article, not the bit about Texas.

As far as removing the U.S. from NAFTA with a single executive order, I'm not so sure. It's been proven time and again over the past few months that the court system won't let the president do whatever he wants with an executive order.

Most executive orders do not invite judicial scrutiny.

That says a lot about Trump and his arrogant disregard for the American people.

Before Jesus took over John's ministry what did people think of the fact that a man in his upper 20s wasn't married and had no children? Wouldn't that have been exceedingly rare at the time?

I am retiring from Trolling
I will henceforth focus my efforts on promoting games, offering opinions on actual issues and an occasional contribution that may be amusing. My goal was never to see the forum overrun with nonsense. Sadly its becoming unreadable and the threads are so abundant that trolling is now all thats happening. Sorry webdip for ushering in this era.

Completely unrelated thought
You can easily walk out the door and abandon your life, start over and become a new person. But can you do the same to your mindset? Can you drop all previous prejudices/perspectives/opinions, (but not facts) and build a new world view? A new model for interacting with reality?

About those earth rays..
Years ago, I started a discussion (and an infrequently used meme) about how I used to have severe headaches as a small child until a small metal device that my parents can't describe very well was buried in the frontyard and my headaches disappeared overnight. My parents cited mythical earth rays as the cause of the problem. The brilliant minds of webdip saw a placebo effect as the only possible answer. I found another possible explanation and would like your thoughts.

Barron von Trump just got admitted...
to middle school at St. Andrews Episcopal in DC. "Melania Trump cited the school’s diversity and academics as the reason behind the selection"
This was reported by Time Magazine.

Is anyone here aware of what kind of diversity a school with 38k tuition has? Even CAPT_Brad can't afford that!
