On a lighter note--or heavier one, if you're a Dodgers fan--how 'bout them Astros, eh?
One of the best World Series in modern times!
Congrats, by proxy, recon and jimi!
Houston must be frolicking over this achievement. Really hope it helps alleviate the pain of Harvey. Enjoy! :-))

I was so very excited.I had a great time watching it last night with family and friends!! How about those ASTROS!!!!!!!!???????
I reside in Cajun Country now but I am TEXAN thru and thru... born and hell raised.
Many of my friends are still struggling because of Harvey, but last night was just a moment in time to let go. And would you believe it, Houston schools are closed tomorrow to celebrate! A good friend called today to let me know, for she has kids in school.

Cahill, you say
"The law is necessary, there's no question about that. However, the law can't be used as a tool of oppression or convenience. If you take the intent of the law OUT of the equation, then it's simply a weapon to wield. The law seems to be plenty pliable when you have the money to loosen it up a bit"
So, under this premise, a country with lots of resources, or at least a seemingly bottomless checkbook, which has laws( which you admit are necessary) are only there for oppression and convenience? Sounds like a good description of our country's problems to me. You talk of the "intent of the law". Now there is an intersting concept. Here perhaps might be even more of an intersting concept under that light. One that might make having laws actually mean something ...... Actually enforcing them. Huuuuuuuuu! ....gaaaaasp! Whooaaah radical indeed!
Then you say,
""Over and over again it's been set forth that these "dreamers" are not here of their own doing. They have committed no crime. They HAVE done everything to fit into the American lifestyle, become educated, sought employment, paid taxes ... hell, they sound like better citizens than most.
They do no have ties to any other country. They know nothing about where it is proposed to send them. They are being sent to a perilous situation.
Why? Because Trump and his supporters do not want them here. Why? Is it truly because they are law breakers? Hell no. It's because it is felt we have too many immigrants in this country. Simple. Am I wrong? "
Maybe you ARE wrong. My understanding is that Trump has no intention of deporting law abiding , productive people who want to live in the American dream AND embrace and integrate into it. Am I wrong? I don't follow it that closely. Seems it probably is an issue with much agenda pushing and rhetoric spinning legs.
G,your lizard remarks confuse the heck out of me. Have you been smoking some of Dis'missing hash?
Victoria, who on here calls Mexicans rapists? And some of your other accusations. I haven't seen that.

I'll stand by my words, though I appreciate you speaking to me as though I'm an imbecile. Very effective.
I'm glad you admit you aren't paying too much attention to the DACA situation, it does show.
I realize you don't "see" it, perhaps your prescription needs updating.
You should consider Dis's hash, the glue sniffing KILLS brain cells. It's sad to see.
Trump, the darling of all of those on your side of the fence is the one who called Mexicans rapists and thieves and also claimed a sitting judge couldn't judge fairly because of his RACE.
And so on .... LOL!
I'll let Gloria ask her SIMPLE lizard question again if she has the endurance, though it's clearly beyond your cognizaance.

There is nothing to be confused about DJ. Lizards is not the term I used, although crocodiles might very well fit in that category. It appears that perhaps you are the one who is smoking whatever it is you have wrongly accused me of smoking.
Go back to page 3 on this thread and you can read your own post that says, "G, I don't call you a crocodile because you have a policy of "do no harm". That is a typically ridiculous logical leap . Though doing no harm can be a noble and loving thing, the modern Liberal's ideas ( ooh, I stepped in it there) on love seems to be seriously lacking in the more "hard edged" parts of love The parts of love that include protective rules and discipline and concepts on actions and consequences, submission and the like.
I call you a crocodile because having read enough of your writing, I know that you are VERY well aware of exactly what it is that Trump supporters believe on all of those questions that you posed.
You post up questions that you already know the answers to, simply as bait to draw those you don't agree with into the weeds so you and your crocodile cronies can browbeat and virtue signal together with each other as a weird "communal chewing". If you want to disagree with Trump supporters, that's fine, but engaging them in less predatorial, more honest ways , is more appreciated by me anyways."
So go ahead, answer my question. Who are the crocodile cronies you are referring to?

Well, here is a brief statement from Trump's biggest supporter...
Every single time you think the ultimate in cringeworthy stupidity has been achieved, he's just got to go and prove you wrong.

Ah, but what can the Japanese do, but smile and think to themselves: 'Yes, master, we will gladly be number 2 to you'?
