    Are these people asylum seekers though?

    Everyone coming over says they’re an asylum seeker.  It’s a loop hole in the system.  There are no countries in central and South America that qualify as countries to seek asylum from.  They don’t generally meet the standard needed.  But how many millions of people do you think the United States should be forced to accept?

  2. Biden did ask the Saudis to delay the cut until after the election.  Now he’s going to stop weapons sales to them in retaliation.  Remember when that was impeachable?

    Now Biden is tapping the strategic petroleum reserve to try to minimize election losses.  That should be impeachable.  The reserve is at a 40 year low because of Biden actions in trying to shield Americans from his terrible policies.

  3. Yes, Eyeball has not laid out in detail how his plan would work.  Would an MP have to notify some agency if they're at a lunch with a lobbyist?  Would they have to stream the conversation online or something so that the public can listen in?  I just don't get the logistics of so-called in camera lobbying.

    How do you know it's unworkable? No one has even tried. You just lack the will.

    In any case given the apparent ubiquity of corruption coupled with the unwillingness of society to really for much about it I figure we should embrace it and let it take care of #1.

    Where's the downside?

    You haven’t proposed how to enact any of this.  Once again, how do you propose having the public listen in on conversations that take place in restaurants, bars, sporting events, coffee shops etc?  Please provide details.

    No, I mean lobbying.

    I wouldn't end lobbying, I'd simply make the practice subject to changes and amendments to the existing Lobbying Act; primarily a principle that states the public has a right responsibility to attend the lobbying of public officials when discussing issues in the public's domain.

    That’s completely unworkable.  So you want the public invited to say a dinner between two people at a restaurant?  Or somebody’s living room?  Or at a bar?  Or hockey game?  Lobbying is just talking.  You can’t ban talking or somebody advocating on behalf of their industry.  Now, if money or goods changed hands, that would be illegal.  Those laws already exist.  The real solution is to make the government’s involvement, and impact on various industries much less significant.

    Lol, "If you won't agree my lies are science I can't even play this game anymore."

    Believe me, I've had plenty of these conversations. Don't get your 'science' from ben shapiro.

    You don’t have to believe me.  Just take a look at a 3D ultrasound.  It’s quite something when they turn up the volume as well, and you can listen to the tiny heart beating.  Sometimes you can even watch the unborn child sucking it’s thumb.

    An earthworm has a beating heart. There's no science there. We also know it has nothing to do with the sanctity of human life. This is about things like making women suffer for having sex. making sure they don't have a chance to move up in society, those kinds of things.

    An earthworm isn’t human.  Humans don’t produce earthworms.  According to the laws of genetics, humans produce other humans.  You’re becoming unhinged.   Take a deep breath and calm down.

    Oh it's completely relevant. And it has everything to do with it. There can be no other explanation. You either hate human life and your country, you are just a traitor who is too scared to do anything for your country and you don't care about human life, or you did all you could to get vaccinated and get everyone else vaccinated too.

    So, are you a terrorist, turncoat, or pro-vaccine?

    You’re still not making any sense or any substantive point regarding an unborn baby with a beating heart etc. Recognizing prenatal science is paramount to understanding the issue.

    I mean blastocysts aren't people.

    Never mind all the super intrusive things this opens the door to. Heck, blowjobs used to be illegal.

    You’re not making any sense.  Unborn babies, with heartbeats, etc, that feel pain, are the issue.  Super intrusive?  You mean like the government forcing you to inject chemicals into your body?  Then having to prove publicly that you had said chemicals injected into your body to go to the grocery store, or to keep your job.  Get the eff outta here.

    Well, as I always need to point out, then you have killed billions. And this will mean outright bans on abortion, or have you not met the insurrectionist party? "Up to the states" means "we want to remove this right."

    You have killed women with this. Not your little magical spirits, REAL women will die because of this. No doubt about it.

    How are real women going to die?  What’s a real women anyways?  Are there fake women?  Are you referring to trans women or something?

    Of course it will.

    Abortion kills women every single day.  Unborn women.  Regardless, overturning Roe v Wade doesn’t ban abortion.  Roe v Wade isn’t a law.  Overturning it means that it will be regulated the same way other rights are regulated.  Like speech, second amendment, etc.  At least half of the country will see no change.  A quarter more will see some change, but abortion will remain legal up to a certain point.  Only a handful of states, but probably none, might ban abortion outright.  Someone looking to have an abortion will just need to find a neighbouring state to have the procedure.  Furthermore, Democrats had the chance to codify abortion into actual law several times and chose not to.  There’s literally a bill that’s been sitting in committee for almost a year that Democrats have never brought to a vote.  Instead, they’ve been lazy, and relied on a 50 year old abortion ruling that was based on privacy, not body autonomy.  
    But it’s nice to see that medical privacy and body autonomy are once again a thing now!  Funny how that worked.
