NJ is a suburb of NYC? I live in NJ and I'm about 2 hours from NYC (about the same distance as DC) and far closer to Philly (35-40 min).

So you've concluded that everyone who lives in a couple hundred mile radius of NYC is "Wall Street money?" Neat.

Everything you listed to advance your point, was reflected on your nation with a mirror.

You’re just moving the goalposts now.
How noble.

You're very upset. I can tell by your unusually high number of typos. However, you seem to have completely misunderstood. I was making light of the idea that we can label places "#holes" and then make judgements about the people from those places.

I don't actually believe that. What you should do is take all that ire you're feeling toward me for thinking that I do and redirect it at Trump for stating as much.

Yes there are some small requirements for people getting in the lottery, and again you are right that its not the largest part of our system

But you are the one hyperventilating about how country of orgin should never be used.

Your own posts here shows that you know that in part the current system does take country of origin into mind.

Yet you defend it.

This is what makes me shake my head.

As far as haiti not being eligible, thats because they have sent so many people here already.

As you admitted, we do not have a merit system, aside from the lottery, much of our immigration is chain migration based, or based on countries suffering disasters (again more admissions based on country of origin, but you are ok so long as its not trump saying that).

Trump has publicly called for a merit system that would take people from all countries.

He was questioning why the current system that is not merit based takes so many people from crummy countries.

But you are right that there are more comedians on the left that are willing to shill for their political party.


I think it's more that those comedians you listed aren't really even working anymore..


Tim allen, Dennis miller, Milo, Gavin McCinnes, Owen Benjamin, Adam corrolla


America leans liberal, and will be even more liberal in the future thanks to the bloviating style of one man, Donald Jenius Trump.

Trump won. Accept it.

that is so funny because those states consistently vote for their "best interests" imo they are just as brainwashed by the right as minorities are brainwashed by the left.



Yet some of those states mentioned currently have democrat governors. Also, I should mention, almost all of those states switch between democrat and republican every election.

This is going to surprise you and the OP.....

theantediluvian

Mississippi has been democrat since John Stone took office in 1876 every single election all the way to 1988 when Ray Mabus was in office. It wasn't until after Mabus that they went republican for 1 term, then right back to democrat and a replublican the last 2 governors took office. Even before Stone, the state had democrat's in office way more often than republican. Wiki that # !

So when was the last time you saw Mississippi have grade A students across the board during a democrat gov? Yeah I don't remember either.


One last bubble burst....

I believe Texas is one of those "#-hole states" while Maryland was in the lead. Ever hear of something called "Simpson's Paradox"? Start at 1:56m



Louisiana is a #-hole? Ever live there? We "dumb" people can feed ourselves and survive if/when the power goes out indefinitely. We're also a major backbone of the oil industry that gives you products like that PC you're ranting from, the chair you're sitting on, the rice you're eating, the seafood you're gulping down, the salt and peppers you're seasoning with and so much more.

But cool, I can play the satire game too.


Obviously not.


But it's cool. Right wingers aren't exactly known for their humor or creative thinking. Well, I take that last one back. The excuses here are starting to get pretty creative..



Oh thats not true, Im hilarious.

I even made a couple satire threads.

The mods shut them down, cause feelings.


Was that your fake news meme thread that just got shut down because some mod got their feelings hurt over Trump supporters having a little fun?


I saw that thread, it was pretty tame from the first couple pages I saw. I'm guessing it would've been left up in the Mud Pit (it wasn't posted to the Mud Pit).

Then why is the democratic party controlling less seats than they have for decades?

I have in fact been to Louisiana many times. Love it. I also grew up in rural Georgia about half an hour from Alabama. I think you missed the point.

I was pointing out how absurd it is to label places "#holes" (regardless of statistics like educational attainment) and then declare people from those places as somehow less worthy simply by virtue of being from "a #hole."

As I said to Ketsuko, you should channel that rage you're feeling right now at how ludicrous an assertion that is and apply it to the comments made by our president.

No, the fact that even the Haitians, while loving their country would say that it is a Sh-hole when comparing it to other countries does not mean the people are bad. Or are you saying it does?

I have zero problems saying that the US healthcare system is terrible and the NHS or Canadian system is better. Not better people but a better system. Kinda the same thing as we are discussing.

Yes, we know that many of the people that are driving for a non merit based system hate the US, like you.

Funny, every country that has every culture that has ever existed in the world has stolen, gone to war, abused others, etc.

Yet only the US and european countries are evil and reminded how they are only doing well because they stole from people.

If you think the wealth of the US is only from acts of aggression against others you are over simplifying and ill informed.

All part of the ebb and flow of American politics, that seems to be invisible to those creating and populating their own echo chambers.

But you cannot bring yourself to say it’s a sh*thole?

Most people would rather live in St.Petersburg than Compton...
Does that make the States more of a sh*thole than Russia?

Your reasoning is specious and flawed.

Tragicly funny in an radically radicaliesed fashion. Entitledment is the the precirsor for all great megalomaniacs in history. Dont worry all you hopefull haters. Theres no risk of any of tour patented truths will be noted in future history. Tou know why? Cause in the end ther will always be someone less equal no matter how many you eradicate. “Here on this farm we are all equal. Its jus that some are mor equal than others”
