President Trump's third 100 days
Because Dyzalot appointed himself the arbiter of what is and what is not American for some reason.

At this moment, Dyzalot is trying to google any link he can find to rebut the argument that Jefferson supported progressive taxation at the state level.

Just saw this edit. Jefferson's view on Federalism - meaning what he thought the Federal Gov't should or should not do, is not the same thing as Jefferson's views on progressive taxation. States have been taxing their citizens since before the nation was founded. Jefferson was not opposed to this. He believed in a progressive taxation system, just not at the federal level. Does your silly argument about taxes being theft stop at the state level or is that just a federal thing'

Seriously, WTF. Trump is an idiot. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that President Trump called him last week to apologize for the bloody fight between Erdogan’s security and protestors in D.C in May. Erdogan told PBS NewsHour on Tuesday that Trump had “called me about a week ago about this issue.” “He said that he was sorry and that he was going to follow up on this issue when we come to the United States within the framework for an official visit,” Erdogan said. A grand jury indicted 19 defendants last month in the brawl that took place outside the Turkish ...

I didn't make an assertion. I made a rebuttal using Jefferson's views on progressive taxation as evidence. Also, I can also play this stupid game you're playing. As far as we believe in the sanctity of the hot dog in America, covering our national junk food with Ketchup is un-American.

It's relevant to your assertion that taxation is un-American. It isn't. Whether you agree with something or not doesn't make that particular thing American or un-American.

PM the Founding Fathers. I doubt they'll agree. George Washington snuffed out a rebellion based on people refusing to pay Whiskey Taxes ffs. Jefferson was in favor of progressive taxation. Madison was in favor of raising taxes for "the general welfare".

The more honest description, if you want to go that route, is that rich people built the roads by force. They certainly didn't volunteer to build the interstate highway system. I can thank government for forcing them to pay for a public good all of us use.

Not really. The Christian Right doesn't really care about Jews as much as they care about Israel. They care about Israel because of the Bible. This isn't to say that Christians hate Jews but rather I was rebutting the claim that conservatives love Jews. They don't. They love Israel.

LOL. What a nonsensical statement. This isn't a difference in opinion or wiring. Most roads in the US have been built and maintained by gov't expenditures. Are you disputing this fact'

Stanford is a 10 point favorite vs. UCLA. There is no way in hell they cover. Not saying UCLA is great but Stanford is absolutely awful this season.

Roads and schools and stuff is correct. She went to public schools her entire life and her mother couldn't afford to pay for private school. And who says we all don't take advantage of "other people's money"' Take a highway to work today' Did you house get robbed by invaders this morning' Is U Mich suddenly a private school'

LOL. Who said this was all or nothing' She certainly wouldn't have been able to afford to go to college without grants and she wouldn't have bought a house without the FHA program. Obviously Donald Trump doesn't need either program so there are at least some people who don't need the benevolence. However I'm glad both programs exist so that intelligent people like my wife are given the opportunity to compete and thrive even though she was not born with the advantages that most of us take for granted.

Yes. FISA warrants, unfortunately, are super fucking broad and grants authority to monitor everything from library cards to what you ordered for lunch. I personally don't believe FISA courts are constitutional nor do I believe their broad warrants are allowable under the 4th Amendment. Hopefully the GOP takes a good hard look at the use of FISA courts after this whole shit show has passed by.

Wow, someone did an actual write up on that quote. I guess it was the ancient Chinese. Well before Jenny from the Block. / In the years after the death of Confucius circa 479 BC a compilation of his teachings and aphorisms was constructed which is now referred to as the “Analects”. One passage described the recommended actions of a benevolent ruler. The potentate should select tasks for his populace that are appropriate and constructive, and these proper choices should result in subjects who have no reason to be unhappy and complain: 2 Tsze-chang said, “What is meant by being ...

I agree. You'd get along with my folks. Especially my Republican father. Spoiler - he didn't vote for Trump, but he's definitely salt of the earth and the sort of guy anybody would love to have a beer with.

Privilege on my end for sure - i definitely won the genetic lottery as far as families are concerned. On her end, she came from nothing. Her mom was 14 year old illegal immigrant when she was born. Thanks to gov't programs like Pell grants she was able to graduate UCLA with 3 degrees. Thanks to gov't programs like FHA loans, she was able to buy her first property at the age of 25. Yes, luck was involved too since she was able to weather the storm of the 2008 crash before she met me.

No, she didn't. She parlayed an FHA loan to owning several properties. I just happened to come along at the right time to chip in.

Since never. I guess this is why I'm out of touch with the "avg American". I have given credit to the think tanks, talk radio, fox news, and breitbart for tapping into the "values" of the electorate rather than debate the facts. It is a winning strategy thus far and good for playing "the long game".
