Yeah, bizarre. They had a religious objection to officially stating their religious objection.

It says something about the qualities of our current president that the best argument anyone has made in his defense is that he didn't know what he was talking about. -- Paul Krugman

EPA Inspector General wants to know how something like this was OK’d

quote:
Stepp’s chief of staff, Kurt Thiede, who previously worked for her in Wisconsin, was asked in the Minnesota review to stall submitting written comments from the EPA on the proposed mine until after the period for submitting public comments had ended. That move in effect made those comments secret until environmental groups sued.

...

Kevin Pierard, a senior official in the EPA’s Chicago office, told Minnesota regulators that the proposed permit didn’t have numeric limits on how much pollution could be in discharges from the mine. He also said the discharges would exceed federal health and aquatic life standards for mercury, copper, arsenic, cadmium and zinc.

Pierard’s comments were read over the phone to Minnesota regulators so they wouldn’t appear in the official record, a move former EPA attorney Jeffry Fowley said was “seriously improper conduct.” Fowley said the permit is “an end-run around the … requirements of the Clean Water Act.”

Nazis go gaga for Trump's racism
White Supremacists, Extremists Celebrate President Trump’s Latest Racist Tweets

quote:
Andrew Anglin again praised the President, writing on the Daily Stormer the day after the rally: “Telling those women to go back to their countries is by far the most racist thing he’s ever said – especially since one of them was a black American, descended from slaves. And by refusing to apologize, he has effectively normalized the opinion among the masses of goyim that you can believe that America is a white country, for white people – and that brown people are our guests and if they don’t like being guests then they have to go home.”

...

Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin was apparently thrilled by the tweets, posting on his popular Daily Stormer website: “Man, President Trump’s Twitter account has been pure fire lately. This might be the funniest thing he’s ever tweeted. This is the kind of WHITE NATIONALISM we elected him for. And we’re obviously seeing it only because there’s another election coming up. But I’ll tell you, even knowing that, it still feels so good.”

Anglin also emphasized the political implications of Mr. Trump telling people of color to “go back” to their countries: “This is what elected Trump and this is what will always be the best way for him to gain support,” and underscored the importance of these comments being directed at U.S. citizens, particularly Rep. Pressley, who was born in Cincinnati: “So this is not some half-assed anti-immigrant white nationalism. Trump is literally telling American blacks to go back to Africa.”

Things that are socialism
Is there Social Security?

Does Medicare exist?

Are there public highways?

Are there Municipal Fire and Police Departments?

Are there street lights?

Is there an Interstate Highway system?

Do US Highways exist?

Are there Public Water Systems?

Sorry Charlie but all of those are Socialist Programs.

You forgot the biggie - The military "defense" infrastructure.

Seemingly, anything the government spends money on is socialism.

Sorry, I was away for a bit and just realized that this post was out there.

I'm not seeing your claim in any definitions of that emblem. Do you have any sources that say the emblem's meaning is changeable over time?

Actually the symbol is still used in Russia today. The Russian national airline Aeroflot continues to use the emblem. Also it is on the flag of several federal districts in Russia. So yes the Hammer and Sickle are still associated with Russia. It is no longer an exclusively communist symbol.

quote:
Two federal subjects of the post-Soviet Russian Federation use the hammer and sickle in their symbols: the Vladimir Oblast has them on its flag and the Bryansk Oblast has them on its flag and coat of arms, which is also the central element of its flag. In addition, the Russian city of Oryol also uses the hammer and sickle on its flag.
The former Soviet (now Russian) national airline, Aeroflot, continues to use the hammer and sickle in its symbol.
The hammer and sickle can be found as a logo on most ushanka hats, usually the Soviet-styled ones

https://en.wikipedia.org/.../Hammer_and_sickle#Current_usage
I bolded some of that as you seem to read selectively..
So it looks like you cherry picked the info from Wiki, as I used the same exact source and it showed you are wrong. Were you trying to be deceptive? Or is it just plain dishonesty?

I see the rest of your post has been thoroughly destroyed by others. I just wanted to clearly show others how dishonest a debater you are.


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I agree, yet I was the only one to point out the glaring error in Message 3064

As shown above. There is no glaring error. In the attempt to point one out you cherry picked data.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

INTELLIGENCE REFORM AND TERRORISM PREVENTION ACT OF 2004

quote:
``Sec. 102. <> (a) Director of National Intelligence.--(1) There is a Director of National Intelligence who shall be appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. Any individual nominated for appointment as Director of National Intelligence shall have extensive national security expertise.

Who cares, it's only a law. Laws don't apply to Republicans.
