How do you feel about Trump refusing to divest from his businesses, instead retaining all profits while promising not to ever talk about it with his children? It seems like a big risk for corruption, especially when he regularly stays and interacts with guests at properties like Mar-a-Lago, which strains the belief that he does absolutely nothing that will benefit his businesses.

>SHANGHAI (AP) — The government of China awarded U.S. President Donald Trump valuable rights to his own name this week, in the form of a 10-year trademark for construction services.

>The registration this week came as a surprise win for Trump after a decade of trying — and failing — to wrest the rights to his name back from a man named Dong Wei. The abrupt turn in Trump's bureaucratic fortunes once he declared his candidacy has raised questions about the extent to which his political status may be helping his family business.

>Critics say Trump's global intellectual property interests could be used by foreign states as leverage over the president and may violate the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which bars public servants from accepting anything of value from foreign governments unless explicitly approved by Congress. These concerns are particularly sharp in China, where the courts and bureaucracy reflect the will of the ruling Communist Party.

I heard a radio interview with a former model who'd been nicknamed "the catwalk yeti" because of how hairy she was. Of course, the excess body hair was due to anorexia and she quit the job for the sake of not dying.

Fuck the whole fashion industry, and fuck these designers who want women to be clothes racks.

This picture is kinda sad to be honest. She has a good jaw line but she has it shaded in with her makeup almost to where it looks like she has been sucking on a glass dick. She could, just you know, not overcompensate for what she already has.

Yeah, I forget what the technical name for that is, but when women get too thin, they literally grow thicket hair on their bodies to help keep themselves warm. Some old evolutionary thing from back when we walked on all fours.

To be honest, Ivanka is prettier than many of the runway models out there. Simply because she looks female, and not like some androgynous stick figure.

What is kind of amusing is that "modeling," is what any half-way decent rich princess does when she can't be bothered to find work.

Look at Tiffany Trump. Unlike Ivanka, Tiffany takes after daddy. She has his anus-like mouth for sure. Not sure where the nose comes from, but my bet is that a plastic surgeon was involved.

Tiffany Trump reminds me of the stuck up bitch who has a 7 in high school and acted like she was a 10.

OP, 'Trumpers' aren't worried about immigrants. 'Trumpers' don't have a problem with immigrants.
They have a problem with illegals.
>Do you know how hard it is to become a US citizen?
Not hard enough as to where you can't do it in your first several years living in the USA as an illegal working with fake documentation, especially seeing as employers who are stuck with tons of illegal immigrants often specifically join initiatives to help legalize their work-force. I'd know since I take part in it; I've got about 40 coworkers I suspect are illegal currently. That being said, their inability to speak English is a pretty big barrier on that front, but then again, it's not hard to learn a language when you literally live in it. My Spanish is decent just from working with these Mexicans. I mean, they're not ALL Mexican, but they sure as fuck are racist toward any non-Mexicans, so much so that they've scared almost all of them off.

Frenchfag here
The reason is pretty simple, life is pretty good here, and isn't that different from the USA.
Getting a green card is pretty hard even if you are an European too, and If we want a change of scenery, better job opportunities, or a better life we will look first at what is going in Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, etc. French people generally go to Canada when it comes to the American continent for obvious reasons.

One thing that is off-putting about living in the US for us is your disdain for public services, like universal health care, publicly owned hospitals, community colleges, public transports, and so on, and also the rampant inequality (see http://www.compareyourcountry.org/inequality).
For someone who grew poor, I'm glad I was still able to go to decent schools, and universities without needing to have two jobs and a 17k debt. On the upside, you pay less taxes and earn more, but I suspect you get also more ripped off by the private sector, and you spend more of your salary in health and stuff than us.
It's a cultural thing that was exacerbated by the Cold War I guess, And as far as I'm concerned, it's not a appealing thing.

If the Silicon Valley clique want to offer you an engineering job because you are a good coder active in the open-source community, or you can do business in NYC, of course it's worthwhile to come to the USA, but if you are a run-of-the-mill young adult, not some much

Documentation fraud is grounds for deportation. You cannot forge documents that will fool the DOS, DHS, and SSA databases.

Are you still a bigot if it's only a coincidence that 95% of your religion happens to be of the same ethnic background, and you refuse to date outside of your religion?

Or is religious belief proper grounds for excluding sexual partners, because of the deeply personal, and special emotional, psychological underpinnings that religious beliefs tend to guide?

and Buddhism is pretty frankly anti-dogmatic. Even though there are a lot of of old hierarchies and traditions in the East, in every variety the core practice is predicated on achievement of insight, and on cultivating a personal intuition of cause and effect (karma). "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him" reads similarly to Lao-tze's "the Dao that can be named is not the eternal Dao"

You know, we had a conversation like this over on /pss/ and with some research we came to find that Buddhism is actually very mystic and dogmatic in ways.
Case and point; why do so many Buddhas exist in Buddhism if a human can't become one? And why do Buddhists have so many rules surrounding the assumption that they'll be reincarnated?

Siddhartha was a genius. He really was. But his followers could not grasp his genius. He spoke of reincarnation like Albert Einstein making mention of having his atoms released into the universe post-death.

No longer satisfied with painting God-Daddy Trumperor as a libertarian ideologue and states' rights advocate, X8 ventures into making stuff up about religion! It is not humans that attain buddhahood, but members of the more general class of beings, on the highest of the intersecting planes or realms of existence. And reincarnation is more of a Hindu concept; in Buddhism there is no essential soul to be reincarnated. 'Rebirth' could be described more aptly as the continued movement of vital energy across these planes/realms, including the non-carnal, like the classical Greeks' concept of metempsychosis. Which does sound mystical, even to a scholar, up to a certain point. It is derived from metaphysics, though, not from beliefs in the supernatural.

>>388538
Siddhartha was a genius. He really was. But his followers could not grasp his genius. Siddhartha was a champion, surrounded by faggots. And honestly? I think he knew they were faggots. I think he has no intention of reincarnating their immortal souls when they disagree with his doctrine. I think he just kept his followers around for 2 reasons.

  1. To use them as pawns.
  2. To gather more soul-power.

Scroll up the thread. We literally just had this conversation, you proved you know fuckall about the ACA, and the fact that your current access to insurance depends on the ACA.

If the ACA ever goes away, and insurance companies are allowed to deny you/charge you more based on your preexisting conditions, you will have to pay significantly more for health insurance.

Does your brain just filter this information out?


As Old as Time: Evangelicals, Republican Politicians, Israel, and American Jews. by Phoebe Pandledock - Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:03:32 EST ID:Tcte88KQ No.388236 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have recognized the evangelical Christian and prominent Republican support for the state of Israel since the 2000 election.

During the Bush presidency, an unwavering support for the state of Israel existed along with a growing contempt for liberal and American Jews.

Israel as a state has seen majority support by evangelical Christian voters since its inception. What existed as one of the backbones of traditional conservative support for the existence of a sovereign Jewish state began to be increasingly met with criticism from a growing liberal party both here and abroad.

The initial opposition challenging the biblically-influenced, conservatively Christian sociopolitical agenda which lay at the heart of American support for the State of Israel was, in fact, the growing liberal party in Israel and American Jews themselves.

Republican support for Israel has not changed, but much more obvious is the rhetoric among conservative politicians disparaging American Jews. Indeed, evangelical support for Israel has grown among conservative politicians while conversations regarding American Jews among Trump and top republicans are noticeably absent.


The question: who leads the Zionist movement? Evangelic Christians, the elected officials responsible for foreign policy who hold those views; they were put there by a conservative base.

This base of American voters that hold that a state of Israel must exist to bring about the end of days, electing policy makers who clash with the liberal Jewish movement for a two statement and working with the newly conservative Israeli party, is responsible.

Lately I've heard some concerns expressed on how some segments of society might not be suitable to make such an important decision.
So what do you think of instituting IQ tests for voting?

To be fair, saying that there is a correlation between high intelligence with mental health problems that can impair judgement isn't the same as saying that intelligence is stupidity.

Some very smart people get pulled into cults due to their emotional vulnerability. High intelligence and emotional stability are different measures.

I think it's more about the question of what exactly is stupidity? Especially when it comes to choosing who will lead us.

Some are walking encyclopedias; They can answer any question on a game show. Do well on tests. But how are they conceptually? Can they make proper use of their vast knowledge? Where are they emotionally ?

You completely misunderstood what that poster was saying and twisted into something dumb. Read it again without equating "linked to mental health disorders" and "makes you stupid."

What are your thoughts on the national protests today? If you think they're ineffectual, why? Vice-versa.

The events show wide-spread opposition to Trump and his policies. The turnouts were much lower than J20 and the subsequent Women's March tho. Every day there's a protest somewhere, with the the number of participants and frequency unprecedented. The police response in multiple cities also seemed to be more heavy-handed and violent than previously.

The next big protest is set for April 15th, tax day.

Another initiative is to setup decentralized neighborhood councils to discuss problems and work towards solutions outside of government. If the city wont fill a pothole, the people can and will.

There are rapid response networks being created to respond to ICE raids and racist actions. ICE raids are still going on in sanctuary cities, wtf mayors and governors.

What I'm saying is, if Trump wants to wage war against the states...and he seems to indicate that he is willing to do this...then we have a serious issue since so many military folks are about nothing but guns and Jesus.

There are tons of Good Ol' Boys who would love to kill as many "Blue state fags," as they could.

Did anyone ever conflate not supporting the bombing of Yemen, Libya, Pakistan with not supporting the troops/being a threat to national security?
The republicans used that to shut down any potential investigations of profiteering or investigation into the legitimacy of the war, but I didn't notice the democrats pull that one once.

Where do you think the liberal bias in the media comes from given that every major news network in the United States is owned by oligarchs?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/01/milo-yiannopoulos-uc-berkeley-event-cancelled
>Berkeley has cancelled a speech by rightwing internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos after thousands of students gathered in protest and a group of black-clad anti-fascist activists shot fireworks at the speech venue.
>“We won’t put up with the violent rhetoric of Milo, Trump or the fascistic alt-right,” said a Berkeley history student
>He said he identified with the “antifa” (anti-fascist) movement.
>“It’s absolutely acceptable to use violence. They are 100% certain to use it against us.”
> Many students, alumni and community members demanded that action be taken to stop Yiannopoulos from spreading his racist and transphobic views.
>university chancellor Nicholas Dirks defended Yiannopoulos’s right to speak on campus, though he described the Breitbart editor as “a troll and provocateur who uses odious behavior in parts to ‘entertain’, but also to deflect any serious engagement with ideas” whose “act [is] at odds with the values of this campus”.

>A protester was shot and seriously injured outside a Yiannopoulos speech at the University of Washington on 20 January, reportedly by a Trump supporter who was seeking Yiannopoulos’s autograph.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/25/shooting-milo-yiannopoulos-speech-seattle-charges
> two suspects had “presented themselves to us at the police station”. The prosecutors’ office recommended that police release them, he said.
>The release of the shooter has prompted consternation among some anti-Trump activists, who see a double standard in how leftwing protesters are treated by police. But the victim does not want to see charges filed.

yep, the left shut down a fascist speaking at a universtiy despite one of their own being shot week earlier, his shooter getting walking free. The struggle continues.

Please elaborate on how AntiFa, Occupy, or any anti-capitalist movement is funded by the capitalist establishment. I have never seen or even fucking heard of any evidence for this nonsense, just rationalizations that they must be being secretly funded by some undefined establishment because "they" don't have the same positions that "I" have.

Agreed.

The whole "The economy is better under democrats" thing going around is a pretty weak claim when you get some proper analysis on it.

Fact of the matter is, there really is no clear pattern over who does better.

Thats all politics is, blaming the guy before you.

Awful president and probably to be outmatched by Trump is this Russia thing carries on more deeply...

One thing good about him was his likeable persona. He just might be a fun guy to hang out around but terrible as a leader. Caused the whole world to hate us and continued the Repub style destruction of lower classes.
