Of she had such a poor family how did she become a millionaire? I know congressman dont make millions either. HER YEARLY SALARY IS 170000.00 Where did all her wealth come from i wonder. The other thing i never got is she kept her first husbands name even after re marrying. I always thought that was strange.


I think most all of the members of Congress are millionaires. If I'm not mistaken, Bernie Sanders is one of the few that's not.

Yes, we can continue... 90% of communication is non-verbal, and 90% of nonverbal communication is inflective... so the Internet becomes a quite impersonal and easily misunderstood medium at times. One of the reasons I resist texting in favor of speaking as much as practical.

I try to avoid miscommunication by being overly verbose. But, perhaps my wordiness introduces other issues that lead to even more misunderstanding than it should.

I've learned a few things from you in our discussions here and integrated those points into my own perspective. I wish everyone on ATS was as informed as you are, and capable of respectful interchange of ideas.

Regards,

Hey man I don’t want you to stop debating. I actually believe you are very good at it and would love to see that continue.
Thanks. I made an offhand statement early in the thread, and I got stuck trying to support my assertion. Now that I've licked my wounds, and they're beginning to heal, I realize that this feels like having to support a strawman argument in a debate class. It definitely wasn't my intention of getting this deep into it.



I do not believe you are a racist but with zero context a certain comment could be taken the wrong way. Not your fault just a lack of context thanks to keyboards.
I hope it is the lack of context! I'm not racist, but I believe that I'm in a position to understand the concept from multiple perspectives. I look white, but I was raised in a family where the only relatives I knew where black. On the other hand, because of certain interests and skills I had, I was invited to join the Klan in the mid 1980's.



Maxine has done some great work in her days and is a fierce opponent to those that want to battle her. She is a strong woman and has battled as best as many could even hope of doing. Now she may be a little crazy these days but damnit she earned everything she has.

I may not like her but she will always have my gratitude. Hands down
You said in 4 sentences what it has taken me to say in 4 pages! I'm going to let you handle these folks from now on. You're more direct and succinct that I am.


Thanks,

Maxine has a PO Box in Texas now? (in other words, she's talking out of her ass in an effort to make herself some sort of victim here.)


You pegged that one really good, she is trying to say she is a victim. That seems to be what people do nowadays, they bash others and play the victim card when anyone challenges them. Hillary did that a lot. Trump even seems to exhibit that trait. But Trump is being bashed with a lot of twisted media and statements, but not always, he does put his foot in his mouth enough without the help of others twisting the meaning of his words.

Some people seem to be attacking Pence's wife's selection of clothes for a meating with some royal people, haven't these people got something better to do than bash someone's choice of what to wear?

I will admit, that sounds like it would give you an interesting perspective. Some day, I'd like to discuss that with you.

They must have been having a membership drive. That's about the same time frame I was asked to join... twice!

My answer was that I didn't need anyone's help to hate folk, but they were welcome to apply to join me. The guys that invited me didn't seem very happy with that.

The fact that U.S. House leader Nancy Pelosi, is not asking Waters to step down, is really dragging the party into extinction. Watching two California Congresswomen be so dysfunctional, is worthy of a psychological study. This is a brand new mental illness we're witnessing!


Who the hell expects Pelosi to ask Mad Max to step down??? Pelosi is part of the problem... old, out of touch career politicians.

Pelosi will do nothing of the sort!

Maxine must have believed the fake news media and thought that she and those that think like her are the majority.

I'm glad she is finding out that is not true and she is getting the same treatment she was requesting for others.

The wingnut Brainfart readers are known murderers. Given the extreme uncontrollable violance of rhe right which is stoked by violant tweets from das Trump, it is only prudent Waters uses caution.

I think it is the look over here game. I know it is fun to make fun of politicians being dumb, but hey they did make it to D.C. they can't be that dumb. Something else is in the works I think.

Trump has no loyalty to anyone. He has shown this time and time again. Today, it's Maxine Waters. Tomorrow, it could be you. This bully behavior of Trump shouldn't be applauded.

We don't bite much. You're doing fine. Just have better sources to back up facts. Opinions are fine.



TBH you debate better than tons of people here.

Why the hell are you letting Nazis run our country then? Take up arms and defeat them.

...Am I going to see you in national headlines for your actions?

Good Lord.
