    This is just American political games.
    Yeah, and all of the above is an issue.

    American politics are batshit crazy at best, and ripe with corruption. It's been that way for as long back as you can trace.

    To be honest, it really started in the days of John Q. Adams and Andrew Jackson. You could make a case for corruption in the American Government as far back as John Adams though, what with the "Alien & Sedition Act" and the hilarious XYZ Affair.

    Shocker, right? It's almost as if they're just as fallible as modern day politicians.

    And to think such, and that many of them were slave owners and horrible people...That we should take their archaic texts as rule and law, without question!


    Wait, does anyone else see how hilariously stupid that is? That shit from the 1700s from a bunch of slave owning science deniers to be taken as fact and rule of our modern life?

    To be fair, a lot of people who cite the second amendment and praise the electoral college wish they were a bunch of slave owners and deny science nowadays too.

    Now now, are you calling Benjamin Franklin a science denier? I know you aren't, because he most certainly wasn't.

    That is a pretty dumb statement, Ken. Most people who support h\the 2nd Amendment want to own slaves? I support a man's right to protect himself but have never had the desire to won another human being. If you actually got out and talked to people you would see there are several like minded individuals. By the way, a lot of leftist only try to use the "Because Science" argument when it is something they agree upon. "Its the Coal industry that's causing Global warming! Wait.. hat!? No the Earth hasn't moved closer to the sun, that's just... You're a racist Nazi to say that!!!!"

    I actually thought that the earths rotation around the sun becoming more oval ( it does this every like 100000 years) was partly to blame for climate change. A quick google check stated we are actually in the cooling phase of this phenomenon( more circular). In other words..If we were actually closer to the sun and then add the climate change due to mankind....the situation on earth would be far worse.

    Also the earth s tilt is changing due to ice caps melting.

    How much is a lot though? Does "one" person saying it on a Wrestling Forum equate to "a lot"?

    Also, where did I say anything about the Earth being flat? Or were you just making a joke with pill poppin Joe?

    I mean there's no answer to this question because it's all anecdotal. Even "a lot" vs "most" is just semantic drivel that guides away from the actual conversation. I only pointed it out because if we're going to directly converse we should make sure we're all on the same page.

    And I quoted shake and made an inside joke. If I was replying to you I would have quoted you big dog.

    I would hope that "a lot" in the context of Dook's post would mean "more than zero".

    Gary Cohen resigns from office as Trump's economic adviser.


    Quote Originally Posted by Gary Cohen Email

Kushner is an entitled baby who knows nothing. Bannon is an arrogant prick who thinks he’s smarter than he is.
    Trump is less a person than a collection of terrible traits. No one will survive the first year but his family. I hate the work, but feel I need to stay because I’m the only person there with a clue what he’s doing. The reason so few jobs have been filled is that they only accept people who pass ridiculous purity tests, even for midlevel policy-making jobs where the people will never see the light of day.”

    The rate of turnover and churn is actually impressive. Like, legit, bravo to Trump and his team for mowing through staff faster than vintage Leonardo DiCaprio mowed through models.
