I'll be fine. Getting the PhD after all Do you have one? If not, call me Dr.
Can PhDs not call each other "Doctor"?

They address each other in Latin and use secret hand signs.

I've seen Doctors Wear Scarlet. I know all about it!

I agree the numbers do not make sense, here is the source.
Kentucky exported $311 million of whiskies to other countries in 2015, up $10 million from 2010.

I think those commas should be full stops.

We have to maintain strong borders or we will no longer have a country that we can be proud of – and if we show any weakness, millions of people will journey into our country.

In Austria you address anyone who has a PhD as Herr Doktor.

Unless you are a doctor yourself. Then you may address him as Herr Kollega.

And thus two spouses of doctors may address one another as Frau Kollega.

Alternatively, there is this thing called not reading stuff.

But probably too high tech for most to master.

The US has already allowed in far more illegal immigrants (as a % of population) than any other country so a million or two more or less will not make any visible difference.

Strangely Switzerland also has a high percentage of illegal immigrants; higher than Germany (some of the data is quite old)

I believe those on Twitter and those not on Twitter receive the same amount of wisdom from Spanky's Twitter feed.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Definitely Friday!

Quote:
Comedian Tom Arnold said Friday that he and President Trump’s former, longtime personal lawyer Cohen are teaming up to “take down” the president.

Arnold tweeted a photo together with Michael Cohen on Thursday with the caption, "I Love New York," which Cohen retweeted without comment.

Arnold then told NBC News that he met with Cohen as part of a show he is working on for Vice, in which he searches for incriminating videos of the president.

Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!
Seems like it was only yesterday that Trump was demanding Congress pass immigration legislation.
Oh wait a minute, it was yesterday

Frankly after reading the links you posted in a previous post on this thread it's not crystal clear that situations like this - family separation - never happened. It was implied that it happened before with families that were not "compact". (source quoted in post #13720 )

So, my curiosity, is this barbaric practice long(er) in use or is is outrageous because it happens during Trump? I'm not trying to excuse this administration, am really and honestly curious.

As for Trump....scandal seems to follow him everywhere. It's so disappointing all of these happen in America. But maybe it always was like that, I really want to know.

Well given that some 98% of the US population are immigrants (something they all like to forget), no, it wasn't always like that.

Even if you restrict to first and second generation immigrants, it's still 26%.

Well, obviously I am not referring to the pre-abolision of slavery times or not even to Ellis Island era. Let's say after 1954. I not sure why I asked this here, probably out of laziness. Feel free to disregard my questions.

It's very clear. Melania's spokesman said it was a fashion choice with no message.

Don then said it was a message to the fake news media.

Do these two even talk any more...come on guys, get your stories straight!
Its a stupid fashion choice then
