The problem is that you are soooooo very sure that you're right - and you're so often wrong. Attempting to trivialize your errors only underlines the fact that you don't care about truth.

And our geese will blot out the sun.

Trump is not a racist or a white supremacist. That's slander.

Obama's Hawaii birth certificate is a blatant forgery. And his grandmother explicitly said he was born in Kenya.\\

So we can't talk about Mexico's corruptions without being called racist. That figures.

No point in answering more. You're going to hallucinate racism because that's what antiTrumpers do.

From what I’ve read of those that have been checked (over 2000 IIRC) only two have turned out to be non-citizens. And they were put on the electoral roll by mistake.

Of course Trump went and claimed that all 95,000 were non-citizens.

Trump falls for Fake News! Sad!

It isn't that you said something wrong. It's the amazingness of how almost everything you say is wrong. You'd think that just by sheer luck you'd get something right more often, but no. For example, this is you from Message 998:

One side were Nazis. The other side wasn't.

He explicitly said it was because she's Hispanic...

In which case he was accusing her of a conflict of interest, not being racist

Accusing him (not her, can you get *any* facts straight) because he's Hispanic is the definition of racism.

Moore was a child molester. But apparently it's OK to molest children if you're a Republican.

Trump is Hardly Working
Axios has released Trump's Daily Schedule Since Mid-Terms, yielding a detailed picture of Trump's work habits:

  • 60% of his time is spent in unstructured "Executive Time."

  • Although the schedules place Trump in the Oval Office from 8-11 AM, six sources with direct knowledge say he is never in the Oval Office during those hours.

  • Trump's first meeting of the day is usually around 11 or 11:30 AM, usually an intelligence briefing or a meeting with his chief of staff.

  • Some days are dominated by "Executive Time."

More on Texas “non-citizens”
From The Texas Tribune


And there was reason to be careful with the “lawful presence list.” Driver’s licenses don’t have to be renewed for several years. In between renewals, Texans aren’t required to notify DPS about changes in citizenship status. That means many of the people on the list could have become citizens and registered to vote without DPS knowing.


After the secretary of state’s calls, the number of registered voters flagged by the state began to plummet. In Harris County alone, the state’s flub translated to about 18,000 voters — about 60 percent of the original list — whose citizenship status shouldn’t have been questioned.

And the same seems to be true elsewhere. Many people on the list who simply should not have been.


...Johnson in Galveston County says she has no way to determine whether the people on her list are citizens other than sending them notices that start the 30-day clock for them to provide proof to avoid getting kicked off the rolls.

“They said, ‘Use other resources,’ and I said, ‘What resources are that?’” Johnson said. “They said, ‘Well, see if you have any other ways to determine the information.’ I really don’t.”

So, the list was compiled so that it would include many naturalised citizens. Despite that a number of people on the Right jumped to the conclusion that none of them were citizens. And many citizens will get letters demanding proof of citizenship - without any good reason - or lose their votes.

The SPLC is probably popping champagne. There's no better way to expose the truth about these bastards than in open court under oath with a solid transcript and recordings.

But Faith will have some cuckoo fantasy about this being persecution of the sweetest saints ever.

Re: More on Texas “non-citizens”
But none of us think non-citizens should vote, right? At least not at the federal level*. Sticking with the example of Harris County, if they've established that 60% of the original list are now naturalized citizens, doesn't that mean that 40% (12,000 people) are not? Or does it just mean they don't know yet? 12,000 is a lot of people in a county, especially if that's the number of non-citizens registered to vote, though it's probably in the neighborhood of only 0.5% of total registered voters - population of Harris County is around 4.7 million.

But regardless of the particulars, Republicans seem to have an especial eagerness for kicking people off the voter rolls. I bet a poll tax is next, and old Supreme Court rulings be damned - after all, the Supreme Court has a conservative majority now that should help keep any non-lily whites in their place. I'm so glad I'm lily white. Sure, my great grandparents emigrated to the US from territory that used to be communist, but I'm white and that's all that counts, right?

--Percy

*I think a strong argument can be made that regardless of citizenship anyone should be able to vote in the state and local elections where they live. But making two categories of voters, federal on the one hand and everything else on the other, might be tough to keep track of on election day.

It means that there 60% of the people on the list there didn’t need to be investigated. The rest are still in question, but nothing is proven yet.

It’s a little over 0.25% given those figures. But we don’t know that any of them are non-citizens. And we certainly don’t know if any of those who are, actually voted.

And it seems there were shenanigans there in 2017 Texas Monthly

Only if it were false would it be slander. Let me say it again. Trump is a racist and a white supremacist. He called Nazis and white supremacists very fine people. Get a clue.

Obama's Hawaii birth certificate is a blatant forgery.

And you know this how? Why am I not expecting a response, you factless inactive person you.? Do you understand that being inactive gains you very little? People can't see your email or your profile or your aliases, and you no longer appear in the member list, but people can still see and reply to all your messages, and everyone conversing with you now is already intimately familiar with you - toggling between inactive and active status while in the middle of an active discussion gains you nothing. You're just making things more difficult for yourself.

And his grandmother explicitly said he was born in Kenya.

There was an obvious translation problem. As the conversation continued she made clear that she thought Obama was born in the US. And there's still the birth certificate.

It's interesting that even more than two years after the election that Trump still needs the bogeyman and bogeywoman of Obama and Clinton. The reason Trump tears everyone down, including those serving in his own administration and party, is it's the only way he can build himself up. He has no achievements of his own, so he has no choice but to belittle everyone else and their achievements. What a tiny person is Trump. The entire world, including 2/3 of the US, can't wait for his administration to end.

So what happened to your intentions to never return. Returning in just 10 minutes must be a new record for you.

How can you explain the Honolulu paper in 1961 announcing his birth in Hawaii?

I thought you were going inactive.

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?
