    Yeah, despite Shock's comments, it's not just an extreme left thing. Right wrong or indifferent, and I'm not going to bother to make an argument, there are plenty on both sides opposing it.

    I have only read a few brief articles outlining Senator Cruz's planned legislation, but I am in favor of what I have seen.

    I may not agree with a lot of Cruz's politics, but I do not have issues with him as a person.

    I was actually quite open to having Jeb. Cruz being second choice. The ones I really didn't like were Rubio and Trump.

    Jeb would have been a great choice but his brother ruined his chances of winning.

    His family in general. And that's not even really so much a stab at the family, but just that there has already been two Bush presidents. Add to the fact that George W. Bush was not exactly revered as a president.....

    I think it hurt Hilary's chances a bit having there already been a Clinton president.


    In these situations, you are either really hoping to piggyback on the success and popularity of the family member - Or trying to separate yourself and show you are better than they were, to overcome a negative image associated.

    Either way, I feel like it hurts your chance to stand out as an individual. They see you as "Bill Clinton's wife" or "George Bush's brother."

    So he's withdrawn us from the UN Human Rights Council now.

    Which I'm surprised it's taken this long, considering the big theme of this administration is being anti human rights.

    The council had been frustrated and such with US since the police brutality and the issue with Standing Rock. After seeing increased border tension and the zero tolerance policy, it's no doubt they were likely to want to investigate such.

    Naturally, Trump and his administration would pull out of such. It's per the course of his actions when the finger is pointed his way.

    And his supporters will claim it is political bias, any evidence of wrong doing either fake news or Obama/Hillary's fault, and that this is what's best for America and we are better off.

    But hey, I guess he has a decent amount of people distracted from human rights violations with the absolutely ludicrous "Space Force" concept.

    Yes, he is definitely rather creepy looking. There was actually a study done on why his facial features and smile make people uncomfortable.

    But to be fair, let's be honest. Would you rather someone looks creepy? Or is okay with having children torn from their parents and put in cages?


    Plus, Donald Trump has a horrible fake tan, a comb over, and is heavily over weight. So...yeah...

    If Donald Trump is heavily over weight then I am morbidly obese.

    As for the "ripping children from their parents" melodramatic bullshit I will make one more post on it.

    The way it worked before is that illegal aliens were given a court date to appear to be basically deported and cut loose.

    Do you think they showed up for that hearing? No. They obviously have no interest in obeying the law since they violated it coming here.

    These people are taking advantage of that policy. They came here knowing even if they were caught they would be cut loose.

    That CANNOT continue.

    If they are truly in trouble and have a valid reason to come here they can seek asylum and they won't have to go to jail for breaking the law and therefore won't be separated from their families.

    That is the thing. These people are NOT in trouble. They just want to come here to leech off our system.

    It sucks but the politicians don't want to fix it. Why don't Dems want to fix the loopholes? Because they know these people will vote (same reason they oppose voter ID laws) and will vote for them. President Obama even encouraged illegal aliens to vote in the 2016 election. A sitting U.S. President who swore to uphold the Constitution openly encouraging people here illegally to violate it.

    That is my take on it and I won't discuss it further.

    Sorry about your weight problem, boss.

    But by his BMI, he is obese.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    The UN Human Rights Council is a joke anyway. People are getting worked up because it uses the term Human Rights in it and it sounds bad. When you look at the countries on the council and the lack of condemnations towards some countries (e.g. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Venezuela) and the overwhelming towards others (e.g. Israel), it shouldn't be a surprise that the US have dropped out.

    It's like getting upset at anyone who disagrees with the Patriot Act for not being patriotic.
