To me, this is a neat little bundle that illustrates the various falsehoods that America likes to tell itself: 1) That we care so deeply about our veterans and want to help them in any way we can, 2) That we only have a problem with immigrants who don't contribute to our society, 3) That we only ha...

The purpose of education is not to simply instil "life skills" and get people into employment, though obviously those things are important to some extent. It's to elevate the learners, produce a well-informed citizenry capable of critical thinking, and expand the opportunities available t...

I'm confused at people talking about how hard this would be. It seems like it's not all social media ever (the article mentions a list which would unlikely require NS accounts). Also, how many email accounts and phone numbers do people generally have? Seems like most won't have a problem supplying t...

In theory, that is the purpose of a tariff. But doesn't China have most favored nation status? Yes the PRC does. Everyone in the WTO is required to give it to everyone in the WTO. Which is why we should leave the WTO. Meanwhile, NASA is like "we're not going to trust the Chinese, their citizen...

This should be the plan going forward. On average it's a net positive for everybody, with relatively few getting the short end. Though I do question how Labor managing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is somehow the fault of Coalition, as the OP implies. I would say the latter is based dow...

This is one of the more American things I've seen and I've seen a Blackhawk in front of a massive American flag while "America, Fuck Yeah!" was playing.

Best part of this is that the tourists will get the opportunity to enjoy better McDonald's than we have back in the States.

Speaking of Germany, Adolf Hitler was not really Christian. He was raised Catholic and sometimes announced his religious affiliation, but the latter was for pragmatic political reasons. He eventually had the goal of de-Christianizing Germany and felt that Christianity and Nazism were incompatible in...

Time for some random French factoids. The term used for potatoes in French literally translates to "apple of earth" or "earth apple". Likewise, the French term for French fries is "apple fries". In addition to this, the French do not have separate words for 70, 80, or 9...

Would they be considered refugees if they're aiming for the 10th worst country in the world for women?

And this is where we have to start. If collusion with the Russians isn't illegal, we need to ask ourselves — for the sake of the survival of our Republic — a single simple question: "Why the Hell not?!?" Because if we can't make this kind of fumbling, off-hand collaboration with a hostile...

Yes, I suppose gangs should be addressed more directly. I never had any issue with them myself though. I do, but that's a natural aversion to being extorted or threatened with death for being in the "wrong" neighborhood, wearing certain colors, or being out after dark. It was my understan...

We could trade it for Americans to be able to vote in every other country’s elections. With 100m regular voters, wed’d effectively turn all but 12 or 13 countries into vassal states.

Well, that was a boring summary. It's almost disappointing. Also, I'd imagine it is fairly accurate since Mueller hasn't called it out for being false.

Again, your source doesn't show it reaching people. It shows and describes the aid being blocked by the military. Nowhere does it show the UN aid getting through like you have claimed earlier in this thread. All you've shown with your sources is that there have been attempts to get aid through to t...
