And the positive Trump referees!

a reply to: Middleoftheroad


Actually he's a really nice guy that actually cares about the average person.


He cares so much that he's supporting invading more of your privacy, supporters more drones and bombings, and supports givien the elite millions. Real supportive guy. Really.

Some people so triggered they completely miss the point of the OP.....

There are so many partisan clowns on both sides of the spectrum here on ATS, but you win the internet hands down.

Totally lacking in self respect and dignity. I actually feel sorry for you.

And then we have the fence sitters! Who think they're objective because they sit on fences!

Doesn't really address the OP. Oh no, if they do that they'll expose themselves.

Nope, both sides!

I want only the best people in my world. I don't want a bunch of losers. I'm trying to make my town, my job, our schools, our state and everything else that surrounds me great again. We can't do that with people from #holes. They have problems. When West Virginia sends their people, they're not sending the best. They're sending the worst people, believe me. The worst of the worst.

I consulted with myself and I have created the best system for getting the best people. I call it the No #hole Merit-Based System. The best part of this merit-based system is that it's easy. Very easy. People from #hole don't have any merits. It's a great system — one of the best ever. Maybe the greatest. Everyone is sending me emails saying how great it is. They can't say it in public because their bosses are too politically correct but we're not PC right? No, we're not PC.



Why do we need all these people from #holes? Mississippians? Take them out. Loser Louisianians? Get 'em out of here! Indiana-uh-Indiana-nians? You're fired! Right? Failing Florida? You wish you were California.

I'm calling for a total ban from people from #hole states until we can figure out why they're so terrible. A total ban folks. And they are terrible, believe me. The worst. Not like people from Massachusetts. The PC people will tell you this is bad. It's not "politically correct." Fake news! I'm the least prejudiced person you'll ever meet. I just want the best people. What's wrong with that?

Could you perhaps include a larger economical breakdown of each of these states to include:

-tax rates
-tax structure
-quality of life
-population density
-crime statistics
-education
-cost of living
-job availability
-cultural and ethnic demographics


I think that information should be accurately depicted before you condemn them to such an elementary argument with made up statistics to prove a false narrative.

Have you ever been to New Jersey or D.C.? Lots of great people, I’m sure...but total sh!th0les!

Connecticut...I have great friends there, been many times. But the state government is a complete sh!th0le. The taxes are insane!

Alaska is beautiful, amazing culture. But come on...it’s more Canada and Russia than it is the US. Lol. But I’m glad we have it.

Maryland...known for Baltimore mostly. Well there’s a place you don’t visit or travel too. Unless you enjoy being murdered. The rest of the state is a beautiful place mostly. Lots of quiet, peaceful communities. Too bad they are all represented by Baltimore.

Anyway, I’ll wait to see if you provide a more accurate economic break down to prove your assertions.

If you were building a company, and you really wanted to be successful, would you hire the best, or would you hold true to your political leanings and hire the underdogs from impoverished neighborhoods, to give them a leg up? Honest question.

Its funny, I have some great friends that live in Florida that are astonished that I want to go live in the middle of the country. They keep telling me I will make so much more here than you will there, and its true by base salary they will make more than me. But I will be able to buy a house and pay it off in 10 years and still buy toys and take vacations where they are confined to the county they live in due to the cost of living.

So Ill cheerfully live in those areas the OP listed as Shole states, being able to afford to truly live without driving myself into a life time of debt is kind of a big deal to me.

Both.

Hire the best to help teach the rest.

You understand the notion of being a good neighbor...youre a mason.

The op was a ridiculous hyperbole. It was not satire as it didnt satirize reality. Although if i squint real hard i can look past how obnoxious it was and see a small kernal of truth in its core: all of us are better than one of us. We will all benefit when we share the best of ourselves with our neighbors, because we are all in this together.

Im sure everyone can agree with the gist of that sentiment

I'm not saying there aren't fantastic people who just haven't found their way out of rough places, but if I went out looking for just people from rough places, I'd be lucky to find a couple of the good ones. Point is, if I wanted to do well, I'd try to find the best. (And to think that some of them couldn't come from rough places would be racist. So I conclude that the OP is racist.)

Yeah...i dont disagree that we need to recruit aces and not jokers

Im more concerned with them exporting our currency back home, honestly. Id rather see it regulated differently.

But id also like to see us recruit best and brightest types for education only as part of relief packages. Quit sending only food, and instead send native expertise

Money buys more in WV than it does in say N.Y. Does that make WV losers as your cute picture implies?

Cause I see it as a win. Bought my 3BR 2 1/2 bath house 2000 sq feet for $100,000. What would that buy you? And you think I'm the loser? Hahahaha

So you think that because somebody punches someone in the face, it is ok for you to go around and punch people, just to show how stupid it is.

I cant take you serious, youre so full of hate, and you blame everybody else. Nothing is youre fault!
I think youre a moron! A moron who can write, that sometimes have some good points, even though we dont allways agree. It is just to bad all that get lost in these crazy post where you act like a moron, because you think everybody else is morons...

Grow up! act like a man, and show us what you think is right, not what is wrong - i want to hear what you have to say

Deliever it in a mature way, and i will listen. The saying, "monkey see, monkey do" is very true, all you do is to show us how to act like a child... come on, you can do better than that!

Be careful, you are moving towards the old, "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, and you feed him for his lifetime".

Using common sense like that is not approved at this level.

Kidding aside, I sure wish there was more of that. Druglords rule Mexico and make it a bad place to be. Rather than try to help remove druglords, we send them arms, then complain when Mexicans want to come here. Seems trying to fix the main issue would go a long way, but then, that's my simple mind at work again.

And this is what happens when you have Norwegian socialists from the communist Team Martini author topics on ATS. Mockery, smart analogies, funny names and towers of irony for the party-sans to hate away.

I could use more olives to read this thread though, hell of a lotta editing going on. Have a blaze, ante! You earned it.

Me? Not really. I expect that from Trump because he's a douche bag. So, no. It sure as hell as triggered a lot of bizarre defenses from his supporters though.

It triggered the hell outta me, cut too close to home.
