What's he "cleaning up" here?

So "the wise one" has now just decided that it's not just illegal immigration that's a plague on society, but any immigration at all. 

The wise one is clearly well-versed in history.

Kid admires people who proudly declare themselves to be "Islamophobe"s and "anti-feminist" in their profile.  He'll be posting tweets from Luee and Bambu later on today. Can't wait!



You love this?

Baby trump should fly over every town in the USA.

Wouldn't last 5 minutes...someone with guns would turn it into swiss cheese.

Americans should never give up their guns...they'll need them for self defence when the invaders come.
When the Nazis invaded Belorussia the Jews there had no guns and were slaughtered.
It was only when some of them were able to kill Nazis and arm themselves with the captured guns that they could fight back.
Who are "the invaders?"

Kam - I was thinking about your suggestion of where Knox would go in a re-draft.

1. Phoenix - definitely still taking Ayton
2. Sacto - don't think they've seen anything that should make them give up on MB3 (not who I would have wanted in the first place). But Wendell Carter, Mo Bamba and possibly even Knox would merit consideration here anyway. Presume they'd stick with MB3, perhaps with less confidence though
3. Dallas - Doncic. No need to pass on the best player in the draft
4. Memphis - I bet they'd consider Carter or Knox (or Bagley if he dropped in the re-draft) as well as JJJ.
5. Atlanta - Looks like their vision requires them to take Trae, even if the shooting hasn't kept up with the passing. Still, you think they'd have to think long and hard about Bamba or Carter (Knox not the best fit positionally for them)
6. Orlando - Doubt they have any complaints about Bamba. If Bamba isn't there in a re-draft, Knox among the possibilities along with whoever was the one dropped
7. Chicago - Same as above, but about Wendell Carter
8. Cleveland - This is where I think the most obvious landing spot for Knox would be. Sexton hasn't done anything wrong so much as Knox looks like a good piece in a post-Lebron world.
I think this is nice analysis but isn't really needed. I look at it as one of Kam's hot take thingies. Does anybody actually believe that a couple of summer-league games would change any team's mind about their draft choice? Unless, of course they didn't t believe in that choice in the first place. Which is a separate issue.

Listening to Misters Ward and Carter lean on legality to defend immorality and illegality by the Border Police and INS helps to explain why it can happen.

It goes beyond swallowing administration lies, because the way these children have been treated is so radically different from the norm or the "children are separated from criminals" crap. Those toddlers are not sent into court to defend themselves without a lawyer, Mr. Ward!

It is immoral. The separations are often illegal. And the refusal to permit entry to apply for asylum is grossly illegal.

But for some reason, those lawbreakers get your support, the two of you.

My bet is you don't actually know the current laws
My bet is that being "educated" on the "current laws" by this Board's very own Louis Gohmert would be a very "informative" session.

Apparently Gohmert feels that cheating on a spouse calls into question the credibility of public officials. That's good to know.

And - like Evvie - I am sure you think this is an easily solved matter.

heh
It's not easily solved.  And it's made even harder with an administration that perpetually lies.
11  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 12, 2018, 02:36:22 PM
She's saying they are accurate.  I'm saying that anything this "administration" says and has said about this matter should be met with skepticism.

Enjoy your Kool-Aid.
12  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: July 12, 2018, 02:22:44 PM
So these "accurate" numbers are based on what the Administration is saying?  The same administration that said that the Democrats were responsible for it?  The same administration that said the President could do nothing about it?  The same administration that said there was no such policy?

Accurate numbers!!!!!

Maybe you'll leave your basement now?

Josh!

I don't "know."
