You know that most of that was from when they acquired Invista from DuPont correct? So most of those violations happened under DuPont not them.

Star Wars discussion (SPOILERS INCLUDED)

@grunthy , sorry if I missed it, but did you get a chance to ride Smuggler's Run?
Yes I did. Awesome ride. The entire land is incredible. I wish Rise of the Resistance was operational.

I get very annoyed at the people that say the "fun show" loophole. Every single gun I've purchased at a show requires a background check. Secondarily with how easy it is to get a gun, at a place like Walmart. Background checks are still completed there, but if you can't fill out the form properly, ...

I don’t think anyone would argue that those pregnancy trips should not grant citizenship. But I think the opposition to birthright citizenship goes well beyond the obvious case.
Yes. Just like most issues there are fringe people that want it for terrible reasons.

Voting for some doesn’t mean you like them as a person. That shouldn’t be difficult to understand.

His approval is in the high-30s-low-40s. It has not really changed since inauguration day. Of that group, I think a single-digit percentage of them are the switch hitters and 'ew, Hillary' crowd. And even at that, that's a dwindling population.

i don't know anyone IRL who defends Trump - even people who vote for him. Even in this thread, I think there really is only one person who is a Trump "supporter". Generally, people who vote for him see him as a sub-optimal, but begrudgingly mandatory vehicle for cultural preservation. This is blind...

I think it’s fair to say, that while their may be a sliver of truth to most of the things trump says, they are still 95% bat **** stupid. So I think it reasonable to focus on the 95%. Look at the insane amount of things he said just today and that was like in 45 minutes of questions. I'm always hea...

Did the Greenland stuff come out of thin air? Is there a tangible reason to buy it (oil, minerals, golf courses)? Did the idea originate as a piece on Fox News? Trump is probably just an idiot that likes a giant island and wanted to buy it. Though we have tried to buy it twice in the past. For stra...

I'm sure those standards will be applied across the board going forward. Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism. I'll apply that standard across the board. Continually using Jewish tropes isn’t anti-Zionism. Have any examples? Or are you just regurgitating Fox? I don’t believe I’ve watched Fox News in m...

No one on this board had the opportunity to vote for Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar. Everyone on this board had the chance to vote for Cheeto.

The point is most can learn their new country’s language if they care to or actually respect that new country. Some people just don’t respect or care.

One should never be denied actual treatment that will help them. Health insurance is most definitely not a right.
