This is some of the dumbest shit i've ever seen. Being pro life has nothing to do with race. Some religions are against abortion but there is no hierarchy.

If it's not about race, then why is there no outrage from the pro-life crowd when migrant children die in Trump's camps? Or all the Yemeni children he helped murder by backing Saudi Arabia's bombing of Yemen?

I agree about hypocrisy, but Democrats are equally guilty as Republicans of backing not just Saudi Arabia, that besides bombing Yemen, funds terrorists under the table, but also Pakistan, double agent too on terrorism, and Turkey, that always counted on alliance with USA to keep on trampling on Kurds' and Armenians' rights (and this is not just immoral, but also masochistic for USA, as an independent Kurdistan and a larger independent Armenia could have helped a lot to stabilise Middle East and weaken fundamentalism, actually even letting just Iraqi Kurdistan become independent could have kept Saddam under control without another war that actually ended up strengthening fundamentalism and destabilising the whole region, but Turkey didn't like even that for fear it could trigger Turkish Kurds too, and USA offered its ass at 90° to the Turkish diktat).

Then how has America not bombed Saudi Arabia when the Saudis are obviously funding terrorists?

That's exactly what I meant! Even before Trump, even during Democrat administrations, they kept on backing Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Turkey, despite this is not by any means the lesser evil. IMVHO, it's a deadly mix of hypocrisy, short-sighted greed, old style realpolitik gone tortuously wrong, and incompetence, as just one of these reasons couldn't explain it alone.

And I thought America sucked AFTER Trump was sworn in.

Should've known the US government only gave a fuck about someone based on how much oil they had, which is also why Saudi Arabia got away Scot free with 9/11.

Trump retweets doctored video of Nancy Pelosi in attempt to defame her.  The edited video slowed and slurred her speech which gave the effect of her sounding intoxicated.

Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani also retweeted the video but removed the tweet once informed it was fabricated.  Trump has not removed his tweet nor acknowledged the fraudulent nature of the video.

Is this what we can expect more of from the President of the United States of America during the upcoming presidential election?  Not just lies but outright fraudulent images and video of opponents?  Have we really stooped this low on the level of decorum, integrity, propriety and statesmanship? The crier of fake news perpetuating it himself.

Worth noting that this isn't talking about the video Trump posted. He posted essentially a supercut of Pelosi's misspeaking at a different press conference, which you could do with pretty much anyone, especially Trump.

Here is a recent example where Trump could not for the life of him say the word "origins":

"I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges- wh- the oranges of the ehhh uhhhhh investigation"

Thanks.

I assumed it was the same one based off timing.

Crowder is a safe space? When someone mostly agree's with you, there's zero possibility it's because their logic tells them you were mostly justified?

So Ben was asked to do an interview on his book, and when the time came they didn't interview him about his book, but they did pose questions to Ben about things he's done or said in general, and because he wasn't prepared to combat that in a worthy manner since he wasn't anticipating the ambush, it's entirely Bens fault and he just needs to deal with it?

So say there's someone who knows a famous guy who is publicly vocal about upholding the second amendment, who loves guns, uses them all the time, has fast reaction times and is deadly accurate, and is always conceal carrying in public. This is something quite well known about this famous guy by many. This someone hosts a speaking event and invites the famous guy to be the main speaker. After finishing their famous guy welcoming speech, instead of this someone presenting their hand in good faith while exiting the stage, they pull a gun and put an entire clip into the famous guy, killing him before he can react. The famous guy, as always, was conceal carrying at the time.

In court, this someone explains to the judge it's not their fault that the famous guy was tricked into thinking he was simply going to be giving a speech at a friendly event, and that the famous guy should have been quite capable of backing up his claims mentally and physically, yet he could not when put to the test. The judge, who is you by chance, agree's with this someone and acquits them of all charges.

Umm, ok?

A point well made, Eric.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
