How much do you bet that this will see little traffic?

The GOP and Dems manage to agree on something - sentencing reform - and AG Sessions wants it blocked.

Thoughts and prayers won't cut it.

Our cultural issues come into play.

Yes.

GUN culture.

Not mental health.

Not the education system.

Not the refusal to play snitch.

School shooting in Florida...
...multiple deaths...many injuries.

People's precious children murdered.

Former student accused.

Thought schools were going to introduce absolute security so that 'Sandy Hook' could never happen again.

The safest town in Florida.

None are immune.

Safest town in Florida...but the school wasn't safe.
My first question would be;

"How did the shooter get the gun into the school?"

There's a video. You could watch it.

Gun issue

Sure

It was a gun that was used.

Clearly yet another mental health situation

And plenty of folks who said nothing

Quiz your kids often.  It's just necessary in these times.

Actually, they had warned kids about him the year before, when he was a student there.

Like I said and you ignored, every country has mental health issues.

Not every country has frequent school shootings.

Florida shooting:

-  Mental health issue.
-  Education issue.
-  See something, say something issue
-
-
-
-  Gun control isue

Because Australia doesn't have mental health issues?

Japan doesn't have mental health issues?

Neither of them have education issues, either?

And all of their citizens reliably turn people in, unlike ours?

WAKE UP, KID!

Every other country has mental health issues.

They all have education issues, except those without schools (and even they have education issues, just not enough people gathered together for this).

They all have citizens who don't "see something, say something."

What they don't have is the gun culture and gun laws that we do.

We cannot change the gun culture quickly, but we can change it. And the starting point is changing the gun laws.

Travel warning issued for Florida.

Immigrants are warned about what areas of Florida should be avoided.

The last thing you want to do is discuss the goals of the democrats because the party has none other than to bash Trump.

Removal of Trump would be a worthy goal for anyone who cares about this country, even if it was the only one they held.  

And of course it isn't.  As you yourself admitted in your previous post.


That explains all the DACA stuff - must be that if the Dems pass DACA, then Trump goes away.

Hm? No?

Oh, then health insurance...

Medicaid protection?

College loan waivers for public service?

All those things work toward dumping Trump, according to RSW.

Fascinating. (No, not really.)
12  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: February 14, 2018, 12:56:30 PM
Your constant crusade against Trump is as ridiculous as Josh and Knicks combing obscure websites for racists and fallen Christians.  

-->

I see you can not rebut facts.

I'm commenting on the news of the day on a discussion forum, REDSTATEWARD.  If the facts that come out of the news on a daily basis amount to a "crusade" against the man you support, you might ask yourself why.

And if you can not handle a fact-based discussion of that news, you are free to choose not to frequent this discussion board.

RSW thinks any news source he hasn't heard of must be obscure.

RSW didn't like government facts and figures and reports that illustrated racism across our various systems. I wonder what sites he would trust, if it said something against his belovred party.

And note that kid's "obscure" twitter accounts are above reproach.

That would run counter to everything history tells us.
Well, Yank…….These days you can never tell. I would have bet big, big money (if I had any) that Republican Trump could have never, never been elected in the first place. Absolutely no chance, no way……Color me stunned……

And you went double or nothing that he couldn't govern

BONK

What's your next bet?

Still waiting for him to govern, Kid.

I presume you've sent in your money to her, so that God's First Fruits blessings will go to you.

This guy....

http://www.lonegan.com

says Republicans are going to GAIN seats in November

You can't even tell what state he's in until you get to the bottom of the page or what district without clicking on a link. Less than clever.

On the face of it, you would have to like his chances against the first Democrat since 1933 (!).

But while the GOP has won the district for 5 consecutive elections, since Bush 2's 57% win in 2004 the percentage has gotten smaller each time, dropping to 54% for McCain, 51% for Romney, and finally a 49% to 48% edge for Trump. The trend does not look good for him.

Nor is there any reason to think his ability to predict results is noteworthy, unless you have still more secret data.
