The Mexico question is wrong as well

And of course PR is not a nation.

All this, by the way, goes hand-in-hand with Trump talking shit about African American communities during and post election.



You mean the crime rates in Chicago?

No. 

I mean, in part, his "What do you have to lose speech" in which he made gross racist generalizations  about African American communities, saying "You're living in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs..." 

Or when he said of John Lewis' district, which includes the new Mercedes Benz Stadium, the worlds busiest airport, Midtown West Atlanta, the CDCP, and the wealthy suburb of Buckhead, that it was "horrible" "falling apart" and "crime-infested."

Sounds to me pretty much the same as calling them "shitholes."  And with no justification, except that he knows that there are African Americans living in them.

Its racism, kidcarter8.  Blatant.  And naturally you defend it.

Look at kidcarter8 trying to participate on the forum as if he was a normal person.

Tim Scott has said that Lindsey Graham confirmed the comments.
Paul Ryan has called the comments "unfortunate" without questioning if they were said.
As did Susan Collins.

All Republicans.

But then Tom Cotton and David Perdue issue a statement saying the "do not recall" those comments, saying "Regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith," implying that the Democrats in the room were lying.

Calling out the good faith of Democrats when they are demonstrably the ones who have that problem...what execrable assholes.  One might even call them "shit holes."

Mexico was right.

But you're right about PR.

So I'm hitting 10 @ 10 out of 9! (I'll take credit for the ones I got right although the question was wrong, and I'll give credit for the Mexico line.)

You can't do better than 10 out of 9!

I am still trying the wrap my head around the concept that DJT actually thinks he has a "very good relationship" with Kim Jong Un.

He must be thinking about the U.N.!

Dear Donald, THIS is the shithole you should be worried about.

Because the shit that comes out of it is really remarkable!

But I guess when you have shit for brains, it's just naturally going to come pouring out.

Doesn't mean anything

They quite often come here to be college educated.  You are going to compare the lot to the entire population of the US?

Uh, yes, some come here in order to reach a high level of educational attainment.  Your problem with that is...?  

My "problem" with foreign students in the US is for another time

I am just saying it skews the numbers.

It doesn't "skew the numbers," kid. It is PART OF THE NUMBERS.

Your position is like saying "counting students from Massachusetts skews the numbers." It's baloney.

Not just that "the immigrant" is doing better, kidcarter8.  Immigrants from African countries are doing better than other immigrants.  So why should they be singled out for exclusion in a merit-based immigration system?




Better than El Salvador and Haiti?  Agreed.  And not surprising.

Inventing bogus arguments to pretend to support your point.

You are disgusting.

Still.

I don't think Kid's a racist because he's a Republican.  He's a racist because he's a racist.  I know plenty of Republicans who aren't and prefer to approach these things on an individual basis.
