    0% chance the World Bank board would confirm her even if she'd somehow get nominated.

    That letter is reportedly in Mueller's possession.

    I asked you three questions - and two of them could've been answered "yes" or "no." You chose to ignore all of them.

    You then said "my business is exactly that, my business," yet you think you can demand personal information of others? Nah. You chose to publicly promote your business on our forums. Perhaps you'd forgotten about that, because it seems to me that you're now attempting to aggressively subject our community members to material that you'd rather not have associated with you individually or professionally. I think that's telling.

    If someone chooses to protect their privacy, that's their right and we support that. What we don't want is someone abusing their perceived anonymity to try and post hateful or abusive content without consequence or accountability.

    Now, if you don't want to be personally or professionally associated with the types of things you're posting here, why should we allow our community to be associated with it?
    You have a right to your privacy. You don't have a right to our platform.


    When you start trading in the politics of personal responsibility on the macro level, you're peddling the concept of collective superiority/inferiority on the basis of genetics or culture. What is that if not racism?
    You even used the word "stereotypical" with respect to the unwise purchases you accused Black Americans of making. Is that not, by your own admission, a negative racial stereotype?

    I will take that as a resounding "no" regarding your familiarity with the concepts of circular or tautological reasoning.

    An idea? So if the torch-bearing White Nationalists who chanted "Jews will not replace us" had characterized their rally as a brainstorming session, that would be excusable?

    What you said, you said in public. You didn't yell it into a pillow or whisper it to a friend. You posted it in public, not just with the expectation of being heard, but with the goal of being heard.

    You are accountable for the results.


    You don't yell "fire" in a crowded theater. You don't make bomb jokes at the airport. You shouldn't post racist comments online and expect the rest of the world to just laugh it off.
    The spread of racist ideology and racist stereotypes has broad reaching consequences felt by real people every day.

    Want to post offensive material without consequence? Sorry, this is not your safe space.

    i know it sem like im joking but seriously
    if there was a fire
    wouldnt anyone instinctively yell fire
    and why cant u make a joke like that in a airport
    but folks can say hateful thing and racist things in public
    and nothing happen
    we have politicians
    and founding fathers
    who have done and said hateful/racist things
    but we gloss over that
    but i could be arrested for saying fire
    and telling a damn joke
    america full of hypocrisy

    I think he views holding the government hostage as a win-win situation for him. Either he gets funding for his wall and gets a political win with his base, or he keeps attention on the shutdown and away from the investigation. If this was such a huge crisis, it's a real mystery why he did nothing about it during the last two years when the Republicans had the House and the Senate. They focused their efforts on what? Trying to screw Americans out of healthcare and handing out tax breaks to the wealthy? Trump cares about Trump and doesn't give a **** about this country.

    Much more than unstable behavior is literally synonymous with sour grapes

    I'm still waiting to see this "data." It's been requested multiple times.
