The doe probably calmly walked up to him only to be brutally killed with a hatchet. Jail time, please.

Yep, this guy sounds like a psychopath. Lock him up.

China continues to be the butt of the joke around here. Seriously though, is anyone going to bend over backwards for this? I mean, my ass wasn't going to China anytime soon before this, but now?

Not weird when you consider Springsteen refused a roadside breathalyser test. If the 0.02 was recorded hours after his arrest and processing, it could still indicate that he was over the legal limit at the relevant time.

You could have one beer and fail one of those. Plus, who hasn't driven drunk or buzzed at some point?

People cannot chose the country they were born at, but should be free to adopt a new home, should the home country not provide the opportunities they always dreamed about.

That is the beauty of globalisation.

The problem with this is that another people does all the hard work, lays all the ground work, and then a bunch of johnny-come-latelies show up, get jobs, and then act like they run the place. Look at America. They're not here to take part, they're here to take over.

Instead Trump politicized the matter, and the people then, as you stated, started infighting and refusing to listen.

This is not entirely accurate; the Democrats also politicized the matter early on. Remember that they lambasted Trump for banning travel from China with Biden saying it was "xenophobic" and Pelosi going to Chinatown in SF and urging everyone to do the same and not be anti-Chinese like Trump. Pretty weak rhetoric considering numerous nations had banned travel from China the week before and it had nothing to do with racism.

But that's the political partisan hack world we live in today.

Where’s the climate change debate going these days?

They shifted the goalposts; now any unusual weather is blamed on climate change and then scientists do research based on that assumption in an effort to prove it.

You know that meeting in Cancun Ted Cruz went to? I heard it was really a meeting set up by Roger Stone, Don Jr, and Eric to begin planning to to recruit Hondurans to caravan to the border...

They know which area on the border to tell them to come to - the part that is open and has no wall...

Hannity was there too...his ratings are so bad, he needs some more "breaking tonight" fear-mongering fantasies....

And the left accuses the right of espousing conspiracy theories.

Surprise, both sides believe in CTs.

Legalise the 10 million undocumented already in the country.

No, they should be deported and then get in line to immigrate legally.

That means, if it comes down to paying low skilled illegals less than native born Black Americans, why wouldn’t they?

To be fair, illegal Hispanic immigrants will work much harder and without the complaints, attitude, and violence of the average black worker.

However, because of their lack of English and fear of being deported they're often overworked to slave-like conditions in some industries.

I would say that hair coloring is OK as long as it's not unnatural, i.e. green, pink, purple, or exaggerated, i.e. a Japanese student with platinum blond hair.

because the people of Japan read and think about a given situation before they comment on a topic. They understand that the Texas power grid was designed to withstand extreme heat but not extreme cold and therefore the grid got knockout by the cold and Texas couldn't do anything about it.

Shhh, stop being level-headed, you're supposed to turn it into a political debate and blame the other party! ;)

Posted in: Federal lawsuit accuses Trump, Giuliani of inciting deadly Capitol riot See in context

Trump supporters: You can't try Trump for the riot in the Senate, just try him in criminal court, since he's a private citizen.

No one said that because Trump didn't explicitly incite the riot. The only people who believe he did are the ones who didn't listen to his speech. Did he come very close? Yeah, but he didn't directly call for people to storm the building, which is why impeachment 2.0 was DOA and so is this case.

Good to see our conservatives friends no longer care about law and order. Add it to the long list of things they’ve done 180s on. Yuck.

No one said storming the capitol was a good idea.

The left however seems to turn a blind eye to all the rioting and storming of federal courthouses its members have committed.

What would have happened if Trump had won? Would you have gone quietly into that good night? Democrat politicians spent 4 years refusing to accept the results of the 2016 election.

I must be missing something but how can a school claim authority over a students life outside of school? sounds more than a little sketchy.

Isn't the same thing happening in almost every country now? Schools and businesses are expelling and firing people after seeing their social media activity, for example.

The entire world is becoming more authoritarian, not less.
