re: Trump Tax Plan Thread - Stream is over (Cliff's in OP) - RFK
Repealing and replacing ObamaCare was laid out as a red carpet for Trump. Republicans sabotaged him, yet they will get voted back in. The same thing will happen with this. ...

What Do You Think About the Freedom Caucus? - RFK
Obstructionists or simply out system at work? I hate to see a Republican Congress and Executive locked up with no chance of making meaningful change. Pretty clear most people put Trump in office, and ousted Democrat Representatives and Senators, because of ObamaCare. Do you feel like the...

re: Did You Know There Are Two Irelands? (European Smugness Anecdote) - RFK
Hard to believe posters are trying to pass this off as common knowledge. I've never been to Ireland. Never had any particular desire to learn about the Protestant/Catholic struggle that went on there 800 years ago. I get it you nerds love Boondocks Saints but not everyone is down with the w...

[quote]If bet almost all have heard the song "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" [/quote]I knew there were issues with Ireland in the past, but I honestly thought they were now in the UK. Honest mistake. It's not like I grew up in Boston. I know more about French culture than probably most Americans becaus...

People who boycott Starbucks because of this issue are idiots. Notwithstanding this, their coffee is terrible, and will continue to be terrible. ...

[quote]I can't tell if this thread is a joke or not.[/quote]No joke, I just didn't know. Why would I? I'm an American. And I was asking why we honor Confederate generals with statues, when we (the USA) defeated the Confederacy. I wasn't able to get any legitimate responses... And to equat...

Did You Know There Are Two Irelands? (European Smugness Anecdote) - RFK
Just had breakfast with an Irish journalist staying at my bed and breakfast in Rome. She apparently is researching Italian politics for the Financial Times, which threw me off because it is printed in London. When she mentioned that she was from Ireland, I nodded and said although I had never ...

Cheap Flights From NOLA to Europe in July? - RFK
I remember there was a thread a few weeks ago highlighting some very cheap fares to European destinations from MSY. Trying to fly my brother to Europe in July. Munich would be best but for the right price he could fly into any major European city and I could meet him there. I'm obliged for a...

re: Why Do We Even Honor CSA Leaders, A Country We Defeated? - RFK
So instead of legitimate answers, I am told to move out of the South and called a 'pervert' for no reason? Reactions like that just reinforce that you have no valid argument/answer for why we choose to honor the leaders of a foreign army that attacked the USA. Maybe it's just the patriot i...

re: Why Do We Even Honor CSA Leaders, A Country We Defeated? - RFK
Statues in memorium are hardly the same thing as a concentration camp that tells of the horrors a government did. By your rationale we should have Andersonville prison reconstituted as a tour site, not name high schools after CSA generals. I'm sorry but this is one of the thinner arguments I...

re: Why Do We Even Honor CSA Leaders, A Country We Defeated? - RFK
Some valid points but it still doesn't explain why we hold CSA leaders in high regard by erecting statutes to them and naming places after them. We should never forget history. The Civil War should be taught to all Americans so it doesn't happen again. Taking statues down is not erasing hist...
