#2..hold them both responsible.....1 count misdemeanor for each illegal and 1 count X how many for the person ultimately responsible with in the Trump Empire, but ensure it goes to the highest exec who had knowledge...….I believe it is a federal law passed by the Republican Senate way back in the day that applies......wonder what the penalty is?

He said..(long form)

 

I do not believe drugs should be illegal...………(That is a double neg) which means to me, that he thinks illegal drugs should be sold)

 

How I jump to the next comment...."you support the sale of illegal drugs to children is"...………..

 

He basically says...…..all drugs should be for sale, and all people can buy them (which includes children) because he did not clarify

 

And he is American, and will do anything for a buck...…….it seems

You read that in your mind, but that is not what he said.

Not a double negative, he said "I do not believe drugs should be illegal" indicates he believes drugs should be legal.

One of my favourite parts of his speech the other night:

 

No issue better illustrates the divide between America's working class and America's political class than illegal immigration. Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.

Meanwhile, working class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal migration -- reduced jobs, lower wages, overburdened schools and hospitals, increased crime, and a depleted social safety net.

 

I still can not for the life of me figure out how the working class thinks this clown is the champion of their rights? He's a wealthy politician and donor who has benefited from the exact tax cuts etc he has implemented.

 

America the Beautiful needs to re-branded as America the Gullible.

So, I do not think there is a map in the bible

and I do not believe it says exactly where Adam and Eve where born

so, it is unknown exactly where Adam and Eve were born/created

 

In saying that, we know that modern man came from Africa

We know that through fossils...…...

 

So, even if you believe in the bible, which does not say exactly where Adam and Eve were born

there were no maps, and there was a land bridge across the red sea...….

So, unless you can give me a better argument, your ancestry is African

 

Just like that white supremist found out he has 17% African blood from a few generations ago

 

I got to go...……….I get too worked up on this subject

He did not say all people can buy them...………….He did not say who couldn't...……...typical Trump language

He basically made an inclusive statement "People", with absolutely no exclusions

You read that in your mind, but that is not what he said.

No, You are thinking he is sane....I thought we already established what he is?

I think it is a much more complexed statement than to say something like that...….Opioids legal? HMMM?

Still doesn't stop poor quality street drugs from killing people...……...

It is a bigger question, with a much bigger answer!

 

Not a double negative, he said "I do not believe drugs should be illegal" indicates he believes drugs should be legal.

correct

 

 

 

 

English...….101...….in this case

 

"do not" is a neg

"do" is a poss

 

"legal" is a poss

"illegal" is a neg

A double negative in this case would be if he had said

" I don't believe drugs should not be illegal"

 

legal and illegal are not positive/negative.

legal and illegal are not positive/negative......I actually get that...lol

Hmmm, you might have me there....my eyes are bouncing...…………..

Point is he want drugs legalised……………...I say it is a much more complicated problem than just to say what he said......

What hyperbole? We want a system that turns greed into something good for everyone. Didn't you know that?

The GOP system is trickle down economics.  Only one thing rolls downhill from a sewer

We also have a conservative party which runs the country on occasion.

And owns almost 2/3rds of the entire national debt with only 2 party rules to show for it.

 

Bravo

 

Canada IS a socialist democracy.  Deal with it

Well, the thing is, you gave me an interesting challenge, I took it on, then you copped out by saying we all come from the same place. Everyone knows that.

Our Libs and Cons are pretty much the same in general. But I will say that a decade or two of JT liberals would put us in a Venezuelan style death spiral though.

Sorry what?  Hahahaha how exactly would that happen?  Venzuela is run by a dictaor, has been since Chavez stole power almost 8 years ago.

We are forced to pay people to work for us so we can get richer. Other people send us their money because they are greedy too. Investment.

No, you are FIRCED to pay people to work for you because if you didn't it would be slavery, indentured servitude or the like.  Other people send you their money because they also want to avoid having to pay and when enough people want that they form what the US calls a Superpac

If I want to get rich I am  (forced to pay)

If you want to get rich you are forced to WORK.  The GOP way the last 2 decades has been the systemic hloding back of wage increases, benefits reductions and championing offshore labour and outsourcing.

You can count on me not to lie. lol

 

The sad thing is I actually agree with you that you are not lying which just means your views are...that repugnant.

 

You don't want to pay workers.  Neither do republicans.

You believe we'll end up some sort of socialist hellhole.  Never happen, we're already a socialist democracy

You want to be rich without paying people.  Again very much like the american right wing elites push has been since the advent of trickle down

 

It's...actually really sad honestly.

Nope.

 

Actually socialist democracies in the modern era are.  Capitalism has been proven to self implode.  The idea of infintie growth as an economic model is laughably simplistic.  Every capitalist or corptocracy run nation in the world lags behind socialist democracies in almost every concievable category from quality of life, to education and health all the way down to earning potential on average.

 

Free enterprise and capitalism has seen taxpayer money go to corpoations and wealthy elites who can effectively buy votes.

Funny story about that....

 

We tend to use words like "Idiot" and "Imbecile" interchangeably, but "Imbecile" is actually a technical term and denotes a certain IQ level.

 

IIRC, it goes like this (from most to least intelligent)

 

  1. Moron
  2. Imbecile
  3. Idiot

 

Ergo, when referring to Donald Trump the correct descriptor is "Idiot", although "imbecile" and "Moron" are acceptable, if one is feeling charitable....
