Ah, the old the false equivalence. Nice one.

Trump is simply showing the hypocrisy of the regressive left.
For instance, people are starting to realize that you can’t really support things like Islam and gay rights as they are completely antithetical.

Interesting times ahead.
Just like you can be pro-life and let refugee kids die at the same time.

I can write an X in a box. That's how democracy works, you know.

Phos ought to try it sometime.
They compel you to vote in your "democracy"?

That's not how ours work. And even if you vote for the losing side, you still line up behind the president.

You know nothing about our liberties breakfast.

The idea is that if they kill Americans in other countries, they would contiue to do so if allowed into the US, so keep them out.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So the inbound migration XO has been clarified. So Mo Farah's little cry this morning has proven to be for nothing.

Meanwhile, here's a list of countries that bar entry if you hold an Israeli passport. Remarkably, no one gives a shit about that.

Now THAT is a rational and honest observation. Because those countries have a way of vetting individuals. This is about a vetting process, not Muslims. Furthermore, it is only for 90 days, or until a vetting process is completed.

Oh, the inhumanity!!!

Why would you do that? When forced to choose between getting ass raped by a guy with a red condom or a guy with a blue condom, would you rally and cheer if 'your' guy won or lost - would it matter? Woohoo! go blue!

No one in their right mind would line up behind either of these sociopathic clowns (Trump/Hillary)

I've spent nights in airports because of flight changes due to delays and weather. Shit happens. It isn't a concentration camp and it isn't a massacre.

Try to participate in democracy next time, instead of bleating on the internet like a deranged sheep, Phos.



I'm sure even you can manage to drag a pencil across a piece of paper to make an X.

You can certainly protest and disagree, but they still hold the authority over the country whether you like it or not.

Hmmm? What happened to "We, the People"?

Is it now, "I, President Rex..."?

That is stupid breakfast. One is not required to vote.

If you are able to do math, take the population of the US, substract the number of votes count, and you'd find the vast majority did not vote.

I think that site might be giving misinformation even though it's an official government site. From what I read, the issue is not if one is traveling from a listed country, but if you're a citizen of one of the listed countries. In other words, you might be an Iranian citizen traveling from the UK and you would not be allowed into the U.S. even if you had a visa prior to the executive order.

If Mo still holds dual citizenship then he could be refused entry, at least as of earlier today. I think the administration is learning on the job and going to make some adjustments after realizing some of the fallout.

Quite right, but if you were to have one modicum of respect for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to ensure you have that right, you would perhaps drop the snippy flippancy which is showing you up for what you are.

Choosing not to vote is also your good right but the shitty way you are crowing about it is pretty close to the shrillness you warble on about in the rest of the thread.

Thanks, but we all know Boris does not live in the real world

New statement from Trump today, seems to be backing down

Quote:
My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.
Funny, he has been steadily criticising Obama but as soon as things get difficult he is hiding behind Obama.
Typical bully behaviour
