    Not to mention Trump was given a tour of underground tunnels that negates the wall anyway but whatever...
    It was never about being completely impenetrable or impossible to get over or under it. It was about creating enough of a hindrance to assist border patrol in doing their job. Which having to try and cut through it is going to take time. So it's already more of a hindrance than the previous border fence.

    And even then I question the validity of the claim in that tweet as many others have been rather BS. For example, the guy who was being paraded around twitter showing he could easily scale Trump's wall. Well it turns out the sample he was doing it on wasn't even half the height of the new wall and wasn't to scale. And as someone who has used "cheap" cordless power tools, I highly question that they are really able to cut through steel with them. Those cheap cordless saws aren't really known being powerful enough to cut through stuff like that.

    I mean it, the Democrats will be taking control of America forever. The only way Republicans could ever win again is if America's demographics are brought back to what they were in 1776-2020. Whites are the only racial group that votes for Republicans and they are becoming a minority.

    According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, immigrants vote Democrat by a ratio of at least 2-to-1, and this gap is widening. This data is supported by a study from Pew Research, which finds that non-white Americans vote Democrat by a roughly 3-to-1 ratio. This is important only insofar as the vast majority of immigrants since the 1965 reforms are not white, and therefore there is significant overlap between the datasets—they prove the same point.

    Not only do immigrants vote left, so do their children—and their children’s children. As it turns out, political affiliation is highly heritable, as Jonathan Haidt notes in The Righteous Mind. Of course, this is not to say that politics is genetic, but only that the beliefs and values that underpin a person’s political opinions are shaped by their upbringing.



    You guys gotta take the black pill. After 2020, no more Republican victories. This is the reason Trump supporters were hoping he would put an end to immigration, immigrants vote 75% Democrat. But its too late now. The future of America is nonstop Democratic rule.

    This is the only way people should view politics.

    A lot of people on both sides are putting too much stock into this. Population growth is not evenly distributed, and Latinos are especially not evenly distributed. This mainly impacts the Southwest, including Texas, but not the whole country. The Upper Midwest is still fairly contested but it's not hard to imagine, 6-10 years from now, Republican losses in the Southwest being balanced out by Republican gains in the Midwest. Not saying it will definitely happen but it doesn't seem terribly unlikely.

    And that is without considering the possibility of Republicans improving their position with Latino voters, which is very possible if the party post-Trump changes course. Mexico is not exactly a bastion of socialist politics; AMLO is the first left-wing president they've had in a very long time.

    There's two ways Republicans fall off a cliff: either Trump becomes so unpopular he drags the whole party down, or their egregious policies do them in on a more localized basis (Brownback and Bevin showing a model of how this happens). But both are temporary.

    Because trolling is exactly what we want in a president?

    It would be nice if he would stop "trolling" the Kurds.

    I have to admit that's funny. Politics ruins forums. Very, very rarely do I think or post about it. And it's mostly liberal bullshit I see. Nothing is ever civil. And this is the shit that's going to last for the next year or two with everyone at each other's throats. And we still got people being babies about the last election. Nothing good is going to occur, regardless of who is elected next year. Call it desperation or what on Segata to get people to not ruin topics he goes into, but I'm getting sick of politics as a whole and everything becoming a political debate all around the Internet.

    The funny thing about knowing more, is that when you learn more about certain things, people start to actively hate you.

    I see this as a system tool to get things, for example the police can only help the citizen if he makes a formal charge, only then will the police have the power to act. Many religious groups have only obtained certain rights after using the legal tools, one of them the Watchtower Society, so I believe some wishes need to be manifest or people will have to accept what is put on the table.

    bringing to the game market, I believe and certainly not the only one, that the game market is very bad and needs change. and that gamers are the agents of this change showing their dissatisfaction.
