Weren't there videos of this nature showing various people/celebs beating up Trump?

 

Also, the same people who whine about Trump's 'sexism (ignmoring the fact the guy  acts like a douche to anyone be they male or female who opposes him) are also often the same ones who have no problem calling the  Trump women a whole host of nasty  sexist things from **** to prostitute, et al.  Hypocrites. L0L

Vol, you have complained enough about gender disparity to know that affronts against women are considered particularly heinous for obvious non patriarchal reasons (feminists aren't going to ruin a good thing...a good thing for them that is.)

I don't represent my country. I'm not asking you to take responsibility for all the illegal Poles causing problems in my country either, I know that's not you.

True, there's no way of knowing, and he did say he had his own company. Who's not to say that he exports workers?

Somewhat offtopic, how come you guys start a new thread at some arbritrary length? Just wondering here.

I believe it has something to do with extremely long threads causing problems with the forum software.

20 pages isn't 'extremely long', 100 pages would be, but okay.

It normally happens between 20-40 pages. Depending on just how busy things get and how vitriolic the posts are being.

I keep hearing things about the Poles that make me think they're the Mexicans of Europe.

While I don't use it, Mexico of Europe is a nickname I've heard. I doubt that's accurate, people like their hyperbole.

Yeah, technically our point is 25 pages. It makes things more manageble and can calm heated arguments or flame wars, but also prevents the forum code from going haywire. It's not as bad as it used to be but 30-40 page threads still have the tendency to **** up the formatting.

I always thought it was thread post count rather than number of pages.

25 pages/500 posts. Potato potahto. We don't keep to it exactly anymore so it doesn't matter. Apparently it was more strict before, but before my time.

Oh my God. I have something positive to say about Lyndon Johnson now. Well, actually there were a few positive things about him. Not many, but a few.

There's one gigantically positive thing, though, and I'm not talking about his manhood.

I presume you are referring to the Civil  Rights Act. I'd  agree with you there. You know the ironic thing? That was Kennedy's baby, but he did not have the influence with Congress to push it through. Johnson did. The combination of Johnson's pushing and sympathy for Kennedy made all the difference. Had Kennedy not died it may never have passed. Or might not have been as far reaching if it did.

 

Every cloud does have a silver lining.
