Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Blah. Blah. Blah. Cutting through the noise, the bottom line for me in 2020, is I will not vote for the architect of a firearm accessory ban by non-legislative rule-making.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Even if the newborn has birthright US citizenship, that doesn't confer any rights or privileges on her parents, nor does it preclude the government requiring the parents to return to their home country when their tourist visas expire.

:iagree:

The US military should be used to stop actual foreign invaders, not just to kill goat herders halfway around the world.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I agree with lightning, not thunder. :razz:

If the US becomes an offshore tax haven for Europeans, that doesn't mean the foreigners have any greater ability to meddle in USA elections than they already do, or more than the USA meddles in other countries' elections for that matter.

It will be interesting, however, to see what other countries do if the USA becomes an offshore tax haven. The MCAA requires sharing information between signatory nations. The USA is not a signatory and doesn't have to share information BUT that also means other countries don't have to share information with the USA. Shades of the tariffs/trade war.

The dumbest parts of the hearing were first of all having it ( and public, duh)
If they're not doing anything wrong, what do they have to hide? Or does that only apply when the FBI is on the other side?

They're doing a pretty good job of that themselves, aren't they?

I think the US should stay out of other countries self-inflicted problems and protect ourselves by refusing to import their problems here.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I hope they're serious about cutting off handouts to the countries who vote against us. It's long overdue.

My understanding if you have children and you have a job, you file a tax return to get more money back than was ever deducted from your paycheck in the first place.
I don't know about that. However, if somebody's "refund" is larger than the income taxes withheld, the excess is welfare in a thin disguise. If the main problem with the tax bill, according to Rubio, was the welfare handouts were too small...well, he's no conservative.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Any incumbents who want my vote had better start making progress on draining the swamp.
