    From what I read here, you guys are at each other's throats. And you have an immigration problem. So which is it?

    Regardless, I'm finding myself being tasked to defend something that wasn't my original point.
    Yes we have an immigration problem but we are not killing each other the immigrants are. We have lively debates but of all the mass shootings you hear about it is seldom a guy going out and shooting up his neighborhood. Most are traced back to either a immigrant that has been in country only a few years or a guy that was converted to being a terrorist. Totally different thing than neighbors yelling over the fence about who's dog crapped on who's yard. If you just look at the numbers and not what is behind them you have a totally biased view. Biased views come from bad intel, which leads to bad decisions, which lead to being somewhere you don't want to be. For example the last mass homicide in my area was I believe caused by an Indian raid where bow and arrow didn't fair well against a rifle, but that was before or right around the time we became a state. So the fact that Chicago has a bunch shot every weekend the only shots here are hunting and whiskey, possibly at the same time. {this is suppose to be a humorous statement, please laugh at your own digression}

    A simple concept.
    Perhaps a crime statistic site would serve your purposes better than a political forum? What could be simpler?

    Again, how does one "take stock" of a country if one lacks understanding? I suppose you could pretend that you know it all, but that's a poor basis for properly drawn conclusions.

    As to the separate(!!!) assessment of the effectiveness of how the 'why' is discussed by y'all, I stand by it. If it's not civil, it's not a debate. Just yelling at each other.
    I don't disagree, although if you've missed that there is more than just that here, we return to your lack of understanding. BTW, we also have some posters here well versed in that art of the passive-aggressive, which, while not "yelling at each other", is less constructive in it's own condescending way. Certainly not the type of debate you would engage in? Surely not.

    What? Let's chalk this up to my lack of writing skills and your poor comprehension of such.

    The elitist smug attitude from those people didn't bug you?

    You know of they ruled the earth you would be the first group to get tossed into the gas chambers. You serve no purpose. Not politically. Not financially. You are the threat because guys like you are the first ones to grab the pitchforks and torches and march to their castles once you finally wake up. You are a drain in the society they envision and a possible future threat.

    On the other hand, guys like Congressman Matt Gaetz would have you over for steaks and beer on a regular basis if he were your neighbor.

    Not sure how you are such a bad judge of character. But I've found that's a common thread among those that don't understand conservatism and fall for the propaganda of the left.

    Keep in mind guys, Lahrs is playing you.

    They have free speech, but if you say something wrong, you're arrested. (?)

    He, by definition, needs to conform. If he doesn't, he can get arrested. So far, he is a good soldier.

    Those here arguing against him, at least those in America, do not have those threats.

    Democrats to unveil articles of impeachment focused on abuse of power, obstruction

    No surprises here. We all knew that, impeachment being the Dem's Holy Grail, there would be articles. Either they don't recognize or don't care that most know the proceedings are a (TDS) Schiff led kangaroo court. The only dilemma for the Dems has been what charges they would bring. Bribery was the golden ring, but it wouldn't fly. Yet, the proceedings, being the runaway train it is, couldn't be stopped. The likelihood is that the Dems will be run over by the very train they put in motion.

    It's unlikely that the Senate will find it worthy of trial, but there may be a trial anyway. Whatever happens won't bode well for the Dems, IMO. Trump will not be removed from office and will likely win 2020.

    It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    House Democrats just unveiled articles of impeachment against President Trump. There are two: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
