re: Transgenderism of children is child abuse - Mephistopheles
Funny how their name sounds really similar to American Association of Pediatricians. [quote]The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a [b]socially conservative advocacy group[/b] of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals in the United States.[1] The group was founded in 2002 b...

re: Protectionism is not the answer - Mephistopheles
[quote]Given the current trade deficit, by putting the tax on imports and not taxing exports, we raise revenue. The revenue off the border adjustment will be like $100 billion a year. Issues? [/quote] This is deceptively simplistic and IMO outdated. Trade isn't necessarily zero sum. We c...

re: 300 scientists write letter urging Trumpto withdraw from UN climate agency - Mephistopheles
[quote] I really hope that an educated professor wouldn't actually use this phrase and that this is a gross simplification by the article author. [/quote] Lindzen is a legit published author in the field, although he does take money to do press releases/events where he way overhypes forthcomi...

re: Sessions Rescinds Obama Order on Private Prisons - Mephistopheles
[quote]You should look into ALEC and who the members are and what corporations they represent. They get plenty of laws passed.[/quote] Alec is shadow Congress. They do a lot of the actual work of focus groups, campaigns, writing laws, so that congress can spend 30-50 hours a week begging donors f...

[quote]Unlike Dems who want to ban your sodas and tell parents what to pack in their kids lunches. [/quote] Serious Q, is soda a bigger long term health risk than MJ? Because I'll take a 30c soda tax per gallon and school lunch regulations in exchange for a private prisons and MJ enforcemen...

re: I'm really, really impressed by Mike Pence - Mephistopheles
[quote] For all the cartoon antics surrounding Trump and his media coverage, Pence just oozes professionalism and authority. If he can show a willingness to be more strict on Israel and not dip his toes too far into the social mud slinging contest, I'd be all aboard the Pence train in 2020 or 2...

re: I loved Trump's afternoon presser but it's time for Trump to focus on his agenda - Mephistopheles
The delay was worthwhile for Devos, Sessions and Pudzer at least. Especially the former because of the dishonest way McConnell wasted time by setting up the initial hearings for before the nominees had completed the ethics forms. Dems need to start playing a bit nicer and save up some capital fo...

re: Hillary may not get off after all..Jason Chaffetz going after Bryan Pagliano - Mephistopheles
Agree because to be pardoned they're going to have to actually have some sort of show trial or at least formal investigation beyond the level of congressional oversight. If that investigation finds something and she isn't at least tried, a lot of the left aren't down with her and while she does have...

re: Why do you believe the intelligence community has been against Trump - Mephistopheles
[quote]He's a massive threat to their monopoly they've been running for years in DC. Our government is corrupt as frick. Trump is an outsider who answers to no one. He isn't bought out like most in DC. He doesn't have to answer to donors, which is why he can do the things he's doing.[/quote] H...
