Bullshit.

Opposing Trump does NOT make someone "un-Constitutional".

Pathetic.


I think admin is suggesting that people who block the president from fulfilling his constitutional duties such as those on national defense are acting in an un-Constitutional manner.

It was my mom Maestro.  I called her to ask if she needed help setting up her new cell phone.  She started in on Trump.

For shame, Queshank. For shame. Let her win one once in a while!

HA!

I'm not arguing with her man!  She asked me my thoughts so I gave it to her!

So now I'm here asking in what world a ban can be unconstitutional regarding the religious test ... if it doesn't even cover the home country of said religion?

I mean I didn't even get a chance to bring up it was just the list Obama made of dangerous countries.

This is a crock - Trump will certainly be upheld by the USSC.

Well, the truth is, both the Right and the Left like to simplify as much as possible. If it can fit on a bumper sticker, it will be remembered.

I think the Left has a point that Trump benefits from anti-Muslim sentiment. Keeping that in mind, if some on the far right interpret this as an anti-Muslim law, it's probably no skin off his nose.

You have a point that benefiting from something (as say...a Democrat might benefit from anti-white sentiment) does not always mean that certain actual decisions are, in fact, related to that perceived benefit.

The overly-simplistic belief that this law is anti-Muslim can be used by both sides to their political benefit.

Absolutely. 

However I would argue that simplicity works better for the far right.  And sadly, that same simplicity now seems to be working for the mainstream left.  Not the far left.  Just ... the left.

That is what chills my spine.

Seeing the effect this simplistic rhetoric is having on people on the left scares me while I watch them challenge liberal principles all over the place.  Spotify is currently banning artists with sexist lyrics.  The crappity smacking Beatles have a song about literally killing a woman if she cheats on him.  Ban the Beatles next?  Ultraviolet, a feminist organization, is calling for Spotify to also ban Eminem, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Steven Tyler and Don Henley from the Eagles for crying out loud.

Being so easily manipulated and led around by propaganda like this has me worried about where the left ends up.  And I actually think that's scarier than the worst thing Trump is likely to do.  Like this "muslim" ban.

Maybe it's my confirmation bias but that's pretty straightforward, and simple, to me.  Lips Sealed

Does that make it so?

Donald Trump isn't lying here Mojo?

Does Donald Trump speak and the Word constructs reality?

Simply because Donald Trump spouts his bullshit, Saudi Arabia is no longer the birthplace of Islam?
