[quote]The POTUS has the bully pulpit and the ability to issue EOs. Again, if Obama had done something like this, the front page of this board would have been littered with civil war and ammo threads. Don't forget - it was received wisdom on here for months that Obama was not going to cede the offic...

re: TRUMP just Ordered All US Companies to Seek Alternate Places of Manufacture! - sacrathetic
To the people arguing he can't order companies to do this. Perhaps you're right in a strict sense, but he can certainly limit and even prohibit imports from China, so in a practical sense he can "order" the companies to move production out of China. Please correct me if I'm wrong....

re: Our President is tweeting about Denmark & NATO! - sacrathetic
[quote]Can we just leave NATO? I don't see any downside. [/quote] We are, just not directly. The US is pulling out of the post WWII global order. The rest of the world is going to feel a lot of pain. All those European economies that are able to provide healthcare for their people are going ...

re: Chances we actually buy Greenland? - sacrathetic
And just to add, yes, Denmark will sell because they know the US is pulling out of the global order and Denmark will not be able to properly manage Denmark without the US securing the shipping lanes for them. Plus, like others have said, the Danes are in a financial bind themselves with their fut...

re: Symbolism & Propaganda in Popular Culture - sacrathetic
[quote]But I have to ask, wouldn't it better to combine all the "Media is biased," "Would __________ get made today?," "Society is too PC," "Diversity is bad," "Hollywood is too left," and "Everything used to be better" topics into one thread? I mean, they're all basically the same, right?[/quote] ...

[quote]But why should a message board show up in a search for news articles?[/quote] Your argument would be valid if there is consistency in adding to the blacklist. In other words, are all message boards that Google is aware of on the blacklist? If so, then you have a good point. If that's no...
