A little change of pace from the usual "politricks" These American towns and cities will be under water.


Whilst I like arguing about Global warming / Climate change, and I am prepared to give, that the world is at present warming, rather than cooling, I do take issue with the "by next Tuesday" alarmism that pervades the discussion. I read somewhere recently that the world's sea level has gone up, in the last decade, at six times the rate they were expecting, if the rate had been the same as the decade before. So it's gone up by 0.6mm instead of the expected 0.1mm. The scientist in me says, let me know when it's gone up by 6mm over a decade, then I'll believe that the "hockey stick" effect is in play. I also take issue with, how much of the warming is attributed to Human influence. As I said, I can believe that the planet is warming, I just don't think there's evidence, of warming too much, or a vast Anthropogenic contribution to same. And if we get a cooling period, It could be part of a cycle, or part of  trend.

Stephen Miller has been credited with the idea of separating the kids.


"racist ghoul" - nice turn of phrase, for an abhorrent individual. I could forgive Trump a lot, if the people he chose to boost his popularity, weren't such vile scum.

Problem now is that the Trump administration has not addressed and seems not to want to, the issue of the 2,000+ kids who have already been separated, so what happens to them now? This is gonna end up shitting on Trumps shoes with lifts in  them.

555 I'm inclined to believe that Trump may have not written that. Too cogent and no mention of Hillary for Witch Hunt.

Cohen looks like he's already falling into the precipice, he's changed lawyers and resigned from the Republican money committee... The National Enquirer guy that paid the playboy model 150k has been subpoenaed over the Cohen investigation.

RadioMan - what you've noted is of course correct.

Your point about C (i) and (ii) - if the parents are not in, or are in a place, that is considered, to be not in, the USA, and the kids are with them, then the USA presumably has no right to do things to them.


My reading of this piece of legislation that, Cavanami holds is "Proof", that democrats are responsible for forcing the separation of children from their parents, is:

Firstly this refers to 'placement' in detention facilities - ok fair enough, someone is being placed in a detention facility.

Secondly, the unaccompanied alien children are defined as having no parents or legal guardians with them and being under 18.

​So Cavanami, you great big f*cking Moron, show me the bit, that says, the children must be separated from their parents.

And get some english skills for f*cks sake.

Good news of sorts -

President Trump abruptly reversed course Wednesday, signing an executive order ending family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border after a public uproar over the impact of his administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

The plan would keep families together in federal custody while awaiting prosecution for illegal border crossings, potentially violating a 1997 court settlement limiting the duration of child detentions.

“So we're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office. “I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.”


So Trump reversed a policy his administration says it never had, which non-policy was nevertheless a "law" for which the Democrats were responsible.

"We do not have a policy of separating families at the border.  Period." Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen. So did she lie?
