You're stuck in a critical survival situation where you need to start a fire to live. You only have a lighter, an American flag, and The Holy Bible. Which do you burn first?
It's Amirite's 10th birthday!Read More
+9Here's a good example of progressive thinking. "Why do we live in a society where one of the icons of family entertainment, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland can have a segment called "wives for sale" and most non-progressives think that this endorsement of sex-trade slavery is just good fun?" We will never progress until you can see the problem with that. [Can't wait for the conservatives to rip me a new one for this post.]
This is a non-political question about politics. It doesn't matter if you are left, right or in the middle. What do you think about the caucus system? More
+10Some people can be really funny. And then there are people that live everyday miserable and pissed off at anything they come in contact with. Those people are even funnier.
+8I'm only 24 years old at feel I'm too young to start a family, amirite? My last relationship she wanted to have kids and get married. At this time in my life I just want to live life.
+12The 'greatest generation' did not need a college education, traditional jobs with pensions and healthcare benefits lifted the entire nation. The Boomers, to be successful, needed either a traditional job or a higher educations. Most did OK and were able to put their kids through college because their employers paid for healthcare. With Gen-X, the rules had changed. Those without an education were hard pressed to compete and could not live better than their parents had. They continue to struggle to afford college for their kids and many will go bankrupt when they face common illnesses like cancer, heart disease or diabetes; health care is just too expensive for many of them. The Millennials are on their own. If they cannot get congress to pass universal healthcare and education finance reform their children may never experience the American dream.
+8Ok I’m officially done with all the DACA bullshit. Fine. These people came here to the United States not of their own choice. I get that. So go ahead and give them a path to Citizenship. Trump has proposed this for nearly 2,000,000 people who fall into this category. With the simple propositions of tougher border security, including a Wall. Has also called for an end to “Chain Migration”. In other words people who have family Members fast tracked to Citizenship from shit hole countries towards legalization. Where is this wrong so far? Then he also simply wants to end the Visa Lottery where people are randomly selected to come here to improve “diversity”. My family is Irish and American Indian. My Irish relatives had to work their asses off to prove they were worthy of Citizenship. Years and years. My Cherokee side was simply already here and run over. I do believe in a Merit system for Citizenship. If you have training and skills that can improve this Country... cool. Prove it and come on over. Otherwise the US already has a higher percentage of its Population in Prison than every other Country on the Whole Planet. Not kidding. Look it up. I’m just trying to live here. Attempting a life of safety for myself and my family. I’ve met gang members from other countries who laugh about how easy it is to takeover whole neighborhoods. Unfortunately when it comes down to politics, this issue is not about the sovereignty of a Nation, nor the Safety of it’s Citizens. It is about protecting potential voting blocks regardless of harm to those who already live here. To those who want to simply let everybody in.. I would highly suggest going and living in El Salvador or Haiti for a year. Then decide what influence you really want to cross over the shores of a borderless America.
