  2. Texas Republican replied to the thread San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other labels.

    Texas has more people than any state on the East Coast. It’s hardly a flyover state. You can shove your sanctimonious attitude.

  3. Texas Republican replied to the thread San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other labels.

    If we re-name felons to get rid of the felon problem, can we re-name MS-13 to get rid of them, too?

  4. Texas Republican replied to the thread San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other labels.

    There were many people there who didn’t want the statues torn down by a crazed mob. If the statues have to come down, they want it done only after an orderly process with...

  5. Texas Republican replied to the thread Trump is favorite to win in 2020....

    It's going to come down to who creates the better ads, who makes fewer mistakes, and who does better in the debates. It's a coin flip (50-50). Of course, a major event...

  6. Texas Republican replied to the thread Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent treatment for tumor on pancreas, Supreme Court says.

    I wish her a complete recovery and another 15 years of a good life. But she's 85 and this is her third cancer (colon, lung, pancreas). Maybe it's time to retire. She can't be...

  7. Texas Republican replied to the thread NFL all-time winning percentage rank by team..

    The first Super Bowl I remember watching was the Jets-Colts in 1969. I know very little about what happened before that.

  8. Texas Republican replied to the thread San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other labels.

    In Charlottesville, Trump said there were good people on both sides. Some people were offended by the statues and wanted them torn down. Others didn't want the statues taken...

  9. Texas Republican replied to the thread Biden on capital gains tax: “We should raise the tax back to 39.6 percent”.

    No one actually paid the high rates in the 60's. And back then, we didn't have global competition. It was a golden era. It takes two jobs now for many reasons: 1) high taxes,...

  10. Texas Republican replied to the thread Trump renews threat to end ' rediculous' birthright citizenship.

    That may be true and it’s too bad. It was never intended to cover a woman in the ninth month of a pregnancy who illegally climbs a border fence and delivers a baby 10 minutes...

  11. Texas Republican replied to the thread G-7 braces for its next encounter with Trump.

    Generalizing is a valid tool to analyze situations and make a point. If 90%+ of one group does or believes a certain thing, it’s ok to generalize. But if you get down to 60%...

    Aug 23, 2019 at 2:47 PM
  12. Texas Republican replied to the thread Trump renews threat to end ' rediculous' birthright citizenship.

    Birthright citizenship has been taken way beyond what the authors of the amendment intended. It’s been abused.

  13. Texas Republican replied to the thread Wisconsin Republicans to reintroduce campus free speech bill.

    Shapiro isn’t “alt right”. He’s closer to the American political center than Warren or Sanders.

  14. Texas Republican liked Capn Awesome's post in the thread NFL all-time winning percentage rank by team..

    Surpirsed the lions are so high.

  15. Texas Republican replied to the thread NFL all-time winning percentage rank by team..

    I’m surprised the Steelers are so low. But they were horrible from the 1930’s to 1970. Since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, they must be in the top 3 or 4.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 2:02 PM
  16. Texas Republican replied to the thread Wisconsin Republicans to reintroduce campus free speech bill.

    That sounds good, but it’s had political correctness as a top priority for 30+ years and that shuts down free speech.

  17. Texas Republican replied to the thread How many ways can Trump make a fool of himself in one news conference?.

    1) Lowering the payroll tax is always a good thing when accompanied with spending cuts. 2) American Jews voting for a party that is openly anti-Semitic is illogical. 3)...

  18. Texas Republican replied to the thread San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other labels.

    There are more drug addicts than high school students in San Francisco now. Liberal heaven.

  19. Texas Republican replied to the thread How many ways can Trump make a fool of himself in one news conference?.

    Trump made complete sense when talking with the media. If it seemed crazy to an observer, the problem is with the observer lacking a rational and logical mind.

  20. Texas Republican replied to the thread CHINA retaliates with tariffs on $75Billion of U.S.imports..

    China needs us far more than we need them. If we have a spine, we’ll win the trade war and get FAIR trade with China.

  21. Texas Republican replied to the thread Wisconsin Republicans to reintroduce campus free speech bill.

    They ban far more than “pro-white idiots”. They ban mainstream conservative thought. Mild mannered Dwight Eisenhower would be skewered by speech codes today. If it’s not...

  22. Texas Republican replied to the thread Court rules Electoral College members aren't bound by popular vote.

    A proportional electoral college system would work well in California and New York.

  23. Texas Republican liked Zorro's post in the thread G-7 braces for its next encounter with Trump.

    The Left has painted itself into a corner, for many moons we have both largely carried the G-7's defense budgets and let many of them run trade surpluses against us. Both of...

  24. Texas Republican replied to the thread G-7 braces for its next encounter with Trump.

    The left loves situations where the U.S. gets the short end of the stick. Anything that weakens America is good and shouldn’t be tampered with.

  25. Texas Republican liked Steve N's post in the thread 64% Of Federal Arrests Were Of Non-Citizens In 2018, DOJ Finds.

    We keep hearing how illegals are great people who work hard, they lower our crime rate, mow our lawns and bus our tables (in other words, they do menial unskilled work), but...

  26. Texas Republican replied to the thread 64% Of Federal Arrests Were Of Non-Citizens In 2018, DOJ Finds.

    It’s a third world invasion. Our response has been pathetic. We suck.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 12:35 PM
  27. Texas Republican replied to the thread Wisconsin Republicans to reintroduce campus free speech bill.

    Why isn’t this done more often? Shutting down free speech is one of the libs’ best weapons.

  28. Texas Republican replied to the thread Volkswagen and Philadelphia cream cheese ads banned over gender stereotypes.

    Leftists are the book burners of the 21st century. Censorship is their friend.

  29. Texas Republican replied to the thread Amazon will pay $0 in taxes on $11,200,000,000 in profit for 2018.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 10:38 AM
  30. Texas Republican replied to the thread Why any independent country must ban Google, Facebook and some other censored sources.

    Google is an arm of the Democratic Party. Not surprising it shows Russia in a bad light.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 10:37 AM
  31. Texas Republican replied to the thread New York Times Magazine Declares War on America and History.

    By revising history, it will be easier to pass desired legislation in the future. It's an evil concept, but very logical.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 10:33 AM
  32. Texas Republican liked Paul7's post in the thread New York Times Magazine Declares War on America and History.

    It should be up to the people in the relevant locales, not mobs of violent LW thugs. A majority of black Americans don't want them removed, let alone whites.

    Aug 23, 2019 at 10:30 AM
  33. Texas Republican replied to the thread Biden on capital gains tax: “We should raise the tax back to 39.6 percent”.

    Taxes are like an anchor on an economy. Dems just don't understand that.

  34. Texas Republican replied to the thread Democrats getting more strange all the time..

    The only way to achieve 100% employment would be with an authoritarian police state. No thanks. 3% unemployment is "full employment" in the real world. And it's better than 11%...

  35. Texas Republican liked Spim's post in the thread David Koch, billionaire businessman and influential GOP donor, dies.

  36. Texas Republican replied to the thread Trump could be indicted in 2021 - unless he's reelected.

  38. Texas Republican replied to the thread When Swimming As a Muslim Woman Becomes A Political Act.

    It's so sad to think about Iran's potential and how they chose to live in the 7th century.

  39. Texas Republican replied to the thread When Swimming As a Muslim Woman Becomes A Political Act.
