Protected by first amendment, you dont have to like it, but they can do what they want to it


Of course they can.  Unfortunately, one of the things often lost when talking about "rights" is that while there are things you CAN do, there is a responsibility to NOT do certain things as well.  And as people push those boundaries suddenly you have to deal with some transgender having the "right" to use the girl's locker room in high school.  Sometimes, rights should be balanced with common sense.

Why does everyone think that naomi is Husker? I believe you, I just want to understand.


1)  Because she gave him her credentials here


2)  She would never post asking about Sports Betting.


3)  If she did post about sports betting the post would be about 500 words longer than the OP in this thread, with some weird twisted logic about a boy she might have an interest in hanging out with but not banging.

this SERIOUSLY has to be making the far left crazy.  Just CRAZY.  Everything they hoped wouldn't happen, is happening.    I picture whack jobs like Michael Moore,  ALL the talk show hosts..Those young turk people(are they still on the air)  I can truly picture them holding their heads and screaming  "WHEN WILL THIS STOP HAPPENING!!!!"


And yet, they refuse to acknowledge the truth that if they hadn't pre anointed Hitlery to be President and just nominated a run of the mill Dem none of this happens. Hell, if they just had let their primary be a fair race and not frozen crazy Bernie out of the process they win.  So many ways to win but because they backed a losing horse they screwed themselves.

BTW, for those who think Trump hasn't accomplished much as President, I think this clearly demonstrates that those who saw the SCOTUS as a big deal were right.

Trump lowered the unemployment rate by .4% in a year and a half. Terrific. :lol:


This is so over simplistic as to be laughable.  Anyone who simply takes the MSM reported unemployment rate (U-3) as the indicator of the health of the job market is an idiot.   You also have to consider things like the labor force participation rate as well as the "real" unemployment rate, not as widely reported, the U-6 unemployment rate.  These other factors also show strong improvement under Trump.  Trump is lowering the unemployment rate while, at the same time, increasing the labor force participation rate and raising wages.  All Obummer did was drive people out of the labor force and "create" more service oriented jobs.

If Trump's policy was such a big deal you'd think the media could have gotten a legitimate photo to use to illustrate the problem.  It's telling that they had to make it up.

As far as the economy goes, should  probably be another thread. But I was just talking to a geek about this last night. Seems like an engine that's running truly on nitrous. You can only do that so long.

Right now, people are leveraged on their cars. Carrying $30,000 loans just on their vehicle alone. People are working three jobs instead of one. Just to break even. That means, when the economy softens or inflation goes up, the idea of picking up a second or third job isn't available. There really aren't any jobs out there anymore. Because everybody's working multiple jobs.

I only have one job and don't have 30k in a car loan.  Am I part of "people" and/or "everyone"?  I'm sorry you're having such a tough time but I suspect I'm not the only one thriving at the moment so you can stick your generalizations up your ass.

Even Trump backers are speaking out against this. Gonna be a wild scene soon, will literally, I mean literally be just the people at the GC supporting him over this.


Just because someone has an ® next to their name doesn't make them a Trump backer.  But I'll say the same thing to you as I've said to others.  What is the solution?  Just let them run free in America to not show up for their deportation hearings?  Obummer did this same thing, just not as aggressively.  I mean, you are aware that the facilities these kids are being put in aren't new; that they existed before Trump?  Right?

The two most unsupportable and frankly unrealistic theorems as regards the development of Life on this planet:

1. Spontaneous simultaneous creation.

2. Random evolutionary processes resulting in exponentially and statistically impossible higher functioning life forms.

Hence, the concept of directed intelligent design makes fundamentally better sense and is scientifically far more probable.


More stupidity.  Evolution is one of the most proven theories in science.  Anyone who doesn't believe that is an idiot.

Can you 1099 an hourly employee?

No. The only problem is that it is illegal. There is no such thing as a 1099 employee. The 1099 part of the name refers to the fact that independent contractors receive a form 1099 at the end of the year, which reports to the IRS how much money was paid to the contractor. In contrast, employees receive a W-2.Aug 4, 2011


Your oldest, bestest friend is either a ###### moron or a ###### liar or both.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt, he probably told you that he 1099s his subcontractors.

But then, he be an idiot to hire a subcontractor that doesn't have an FEIN nor adequate Nor sufficient bonding and insurance coverage. Which would absolutely impact your buddies Contracting status.

At this point, I'm leaning towards f*cking idiot.



  I've been a contractor on multiple occasions.  I got a check every couple weeks or monthly and at the end of the year I got a 1099.  Pretty simple.  The notion that it can't be done is what's focking idiotic.

Why is it that as soon as a person mentions they disapprove of separating families of illegal aliens who have committed no other crimes, some of you immediately jump to the other side of the spectrum and think that person wants zero immigration laws? 


It's maddening to read.


Because those same people rarely if ever offer solutions.  I'll give MDC credit for throwing something out there although, absent going after employers, it's same old same old which hasn't been working.  I'm all for not separating families.  Here's the problem.  When we don't detain illegals when they come here, and let them out in to the community until their court hearing, they don't usually show up for their court hearing.  So Trump has chosen to detain illegals.  But the SCOTUS ruled a couple decades ago that you can't detain children as you can adults.  So if we choose to detain the adult we HAVE to put the children in these shelters.  Been doing it for a long time; Obummer did it.  Trump is just being more aggressive at detaining illegals instead of releasing them in to the community. 


I would love to see "comprehensive immigration reform."  But, for me, that includes a secure border, which neither party wants for their various reasons, none of which include doing what's best for the American people.  Trump at least seems to want to do what's best for Americans which I can get behind and respect.  Unfortunately, without support from congress he can't change the laws or finance border security.  So he has limited tools and he's using them.  Just like Obummer did for things he wanted that congress didn't support. 


So, I'm not gonna bash the President for using the tools at his disposal.  IMO if you want to be outraged be outraged at congress.  They could end this in a second if they wanted.  All they have to do is sit down and actually negotiate a real long term solution to this problem.  It amazes me that we've been having these same discussions, to varying degrees, literally for 30+ years.
