    In this political climate this is the smartest thing in the world for Pence.

    Nobody is going to be accusing him of an affair or worse.

    True, but calling his wife "mother" is a bit strange, even to me.

    You've never seen M.A.S.H. mate?

    Frank calls Margaret "mother" all the time.


    He's a jackoff who should get a feel for what those "conversion camps" really feel like. He'll make the excuse though that he's "A true follower of God".

    Poof goes Scott Pruitt.

    Not sure if even Trump could replace him with someone worse.

    I'm surprised Trump didn't just scrap the entire EPA considering he doesn't even believe in science, and just wants to peddle coal and fracking to fill his pockets.

    In other news, Trump suggested DNA screening Elizabeth Warren to see if she really is Native American, but said we'd have to be "gentle about it, because we're in the MeToo generation".


    Cute. Trump is a total dumpster fire and a jackass, but I guess that's not news.

    Also in the news, the kids coming back and returned from these internment camps (It's abominable to say there is such a thing in the USA) are covered in lice, bruises, haven't bathed in weeks, and are a complete wreck.

    Massively understaffed warehouses that have these kids basically taking care of eachother, with under-trained guards having no idea what to do.


    These are human rights violations, no matter how you cut it.



    You can play the "Not citizens" card til the cows come home, but all humans have rights and human rights violations covers all humans.

    Oh, and this.

    This has been going on forever. So many informants, translators, and other civilians that worked with the United States military in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, were promised citizenship after a few years of their service. Few got it. I don't even want to imagine what happened to those who didn't.

    This American Life did a really great story on it a few years ago -> https://www.thisamericanlife.org/607...solve-this-one

    Hey all you Trump supporters. Most of you liked Reagan a lot.

    Remember when he said "Trust but verify"?

    Trump forgot the "Verify" part.

    The U.S. hasn't given North Korea anything or did anything that can't be reversed.

    We took them at their word and if they don't follow through we can double what we were doing before.

    Nothing to see here.

    They laid waste to our land, they took it from our hand
    From Atlanta to Savannah, they scorched our earth
    They stole our corn and wheat, they left no food to eat
    They slaughtered all the cattle, took the things of worth
    Well, we got women and children too
    Just the same as you
    Ain't it enough just to know that you got us beat

    The hatred will never cease, even now that there's peace
    The feelings will run as deep as the scars we bear
    This ain't cloth we wear it's a rag, we're at the mercy of the carpetbag
    What you call justice is plain unfair
    How the hell can you ever claim
    It's been worth all of the pain
    Just to have us live together under one flag

    Yeah, more like someone fell for the bait and switch and is incredibly gullible.

    To be fair, no one knows what they signed.

    Whether or not anything was given is not known to the general public.

    It isn't like we have a binding agreement where sanctions could not be re-imposed.

    And as far as trust and verify....that is what we are doing. They said they would disarm, now we are working on verifying that they are.

    If they don't, shit is gonna go sideways quickly.

    That short fat man child does not want to double cross Trump.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    Calling him fat is rather redundant given Trump's stature, is it not? They are both fat.

    Neither should want to cross either.

    No matter who "wins" in an outcome, no one truly wins in a nuclear war. And the people in South Korea, our allies, sure as fuck don't. The artillery numbers (Largest in the world) in DPRK would level Seoul far before any sort of counter attack could happen, and we know that. That's one of the main reasons we've always treaded so lightly. And then you have Russia, China, and all the others who would follow suit. It would be a disaster.

    So let's not try and act all macho and talk about "Dont fuck with Trump" or that silly stuff.

    Bull shit.

    Yeah, they'd lob some 1950's era soviet artillery over the border. We'd have all their artillery blown up in short order.

    They'd never see it coming with their 1950's Russian Technology.

    Shock and awe bitches. You'd have good ole 'MURICAN justice raining down from land, air, sea, and underwater. Fuck with us and it's coming.

    Do I want that to happen? No.

    But I have no doubt we would decisively settle the conflict in short order. Just like Iraq and all their worn out tanks.

    That's completely unrealistic to think, Dak.

    Even the US military has indicated otherwise.

    The biggest mistake anyone can make is to underestimate an opponent.

    Blind nationalism and assuming superiority is ignorance.

    We lost to people hiding in the jungle and we couldn't beat back China in a conventional war. What really makes people think we could do it this time?

    Brashly and arrogantly jumping into that bout in Nam was a mistake from the get go.

    Between the DPRK air force, and the guerrilla warfare of the Viets, it was over before it started.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    I didn't read either of your replies but I just wanted to post some song lyrics from Hank Williams Jr. which he wrote about the 1st Gulf War that applies to this situation.

    "Cause people in the U.S.A. are not really afraid
    Of your starvin' army and all your worn out tanks
    And if you take some innocent lives that's when the furs really gonna fly
    Hey, man back off and get smart, don't give us a reason"

    They laid waste to our land, they took it from our hand
    From Atlanta to Savannah, they scorched our earth
    They stole our corn and wheat, they left no food to eat
    They slaughtered all the cattle, took the things of worth
    Well, we got women and children too
