Gerry1of1 This has happened long before Trump. I don't know all the details of the program but most sign up in their home countries not the U.S. and known criminal issues would prevent them from joining. They are deported for crimes that occur during or after their service.

They served to gain citizenship. They knew a felony would negate this they did it anyway. Do I feel bad for them? Yes. Should this be the policy? I don't know.

Everyone is going to hell or the same place by a different name. Every religion is the only religion, just ask them. Anyone that does not follow their religion correctly goes to hell. Most religions are mutually exclusive. So we are all fucked. The End

casaledana I agree with loyalty to the country but loyalty to Trump personally is absolutely against what this country has always been for.

Draculya You're not kidding. I had many 3 page math problems in college and I had a TI-85, Einstein did this with a slide rule.

MidPacific I really wish that a centrist news source would do well but they don't seem to. There is simply too much money being made by picking sides.

daegog As a teenager I was immortal and knew everything. Now the only thing I'm sure of is that I'm going to die. This mentality is common in the young.

No good story, just the first thing that popped into my head. No idea why it did.

mrteatime uhm, slightly twisted? He was so far around the bend he couldn't poke sanity with a long pole. Excellent book though. It saddens me that there won't be anymore.

With other Presidents you could join to serve your country, agree with the particular President or not. Trump has made very clear that others are to serve him. Asking public servants for personal loyalty is not the act of someone working for the country.

Is he under fire for it or is it just Fox infotainment that is upset?

Gerrymandering is as old as the country. Computers have just allowed it to be taken to an extreme.

DuckBoy87 That is the very reason we have a House of Representatives and a Senate. In the Senate every state is equal in the house population rules.

I am curious as to what happened. The previous accidents have been human error, mostly people getting impatient with a machine that follows every rule to the letter. Neither the person behind the wheel nor the sensors on the car saw her until too late so what happened.

holygod I agree in part but how is this different than refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding?

The NRA might want to change tactics and start thinking of some more gun friendly solutions. This time it has gone differently than past shootings, next time might shove it over the edge. Better for them to be part of the conversation now or they might be left out completely when this does go. Obstruction can only work so long if the issue doesn't correct or go away.

holygod It is a valid point though. Discrimination is discrimination the object of it shouldn't matter.

This video says whatever you want it to. Like all ufo, big foot, etc it gives just enough info to tease and not enough to verify anything. Also known as a lead or a setup.

While it is not perfect there a simple test to see if news is likely fake how does it works on emotion. Some news is emotional and some boring but to make people choose a side and defend it no matter the facts you have to hit strong emotions. Hate and schadenfreude are two of the best.  Hating a person or group makes abusing them ok, seeing someone you dislike lose is rewarding. Also hate and anger activate the fight or flight system redirecting blood away from the frontal lobe limiting a persons ability to reason and make good judgments.

I have to agree here. Pick one and stick with it.

bliznik In some health systems you make an appointment with a department but don't necessarily know which doctor you will have until you get there. This could be one of those.

Two problems with this. 
First, where will the money come from? The extra pay for the armed teacher, the administration cost, the training. Who pays for the weapon and ammo, the liability insurance this is an ambulance chasers wet dream. 
Second, think about every teacher you had in school and how many of them would you want around you with a gun? Some already know how to handle a gun others would probably forget where they put it. I remember on teach in high school that was wasted before first hour.
