TR Memescape

  • "il y a une chance que" generally calls for the subjunctive, so could someone please chance "peut" to "puissiez"? Failing that, at least change it to "pouvez" so it doesn't scream  "TalkRational: a republic of illiteracy" to the world.

People are crossing between ports of entry because CBP is violating international law by telling people who do go to ports of entry that they're "full." So after waiting for days and hearing that bullshit excuse over and over, people try to enter elsewhere because you can only make a claim for asylum if both feet are on dry land.

They're deliberately creating this situation, and the result will be hundreds of orphans who will never find their parents again.

This is why I think everything is fucking hopeless.

Here's my brother's ex, a naturalized citizen whose own parents'/family's entry into the US was, um, questionable:

Sadly this has been going on for over 10 years, it was something Clinton passed during his presidency yet there was no uproar about it till now. Very very sad, the worse part is that most of these kids don't even come here with Theo parents they are send alone or with strangers to cross the borders alone to begin with. There are many facts the mainstream liberal media is not sharing!

apart from the overwhelming evil of using separation and detention of toddlers for political leverage, it's also bizarre and nonsensical.  in his mind, he's the good guy for attacking the evil democrat conspiracy to bring brown hordes into the country and stuff ballot boxes.  in reality, he's doing something that is obviously pure evil and gives him zero political leverage, to address on his own extremist terms the overblown and mischaracterized problem of illegal immigration, which iirc was at record lows before he took office.  and the imaginary problem of illegal immigrants voting is still imaginary. this is psychosis.

It's a psychosis that energizes his base and makes them feel like he's fulfilling his promises. And the more outraged people get, the more his voters will feel like they're really winning.

Deplorable was too mild a label.

Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three "tender age" shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

As children are separated from their families, law enforcement agents reclassify them from members of family units to "unaccompanied alien children." Federal officials said Tuesday that since May, they have separated 2,342 children from their families, rendering them unaccompanied minors in the government's care.

While Mexico is still the most common country of origin for families arrested at the border, in the last eight months Honduras has become the fastest-growing category as compared to fiscal year 2017.

During a press briefing Tuesday, reporters repeatedly asked for an age breakdown of the children who have been taken. Officials from both law enforcement and Health and Human Services said they didn't how many children were under 5, under 2, or even so little they're non-verbal.

fucking ghouls

Even the policy surrounding what age to take away a baby is inconsistent. Customs and Border Protection field chiefs over all nine southwest border districts can use their discretion over how young is too young, officials said.

And there's no plan for actually reuniting anyone, so a lot of these kids will be lost forever.

Based on my MIL's Facebook posts, it seems like the consensus talking point right now, aside from "Obama started it!", is that the nefarious sneaky illegals are stealing children and pretending to be a family so this policy is actually GOOD because it's saving children from human trafficking.

by the time they get around to deporting me, i'll probably think they're doing me a favor

Back in 1989, I had to make a decision about whether to lie on my citizenship application. At the time, immigration law banned "aliens afflicted with sexual deviation," among others suffering from "psychopathic personality," from entry to the United States. I had come to this country as a fourteen-year-old, in 1981, but I had been aware of my "sexual deviation" at the time, and this technically meant that I should not have entered the country. I decided to append a letter to my citizenship application, informing the Immigration and Naturalization Service that I was homosexual but that I disagreed with the exclusion and would be willing to discuss the matter in court. I was young, ambitious, and pragmatically cocky: I had entered the country as a stateless person, not to mention a minor, so I figured that I couldn't be deported. The rational thing to do, however, would have been to obfuscate on my citizenship application.

My application was granted without my having to fight for it in court. I hadn't thought about my naturalization for years, but I find myself thinking about it now, thankful for the near-accident of not having lied on my application. Over the years, the applications for both citizenship and permanent residence have grown ever longer, filling with questions that seem to be designed to be used against the applicant. Question 26 on the green-card application, for example, reads, "Have you EVER committed a crime of any kind (even if you were not arrested, cited, charged with, or tried for that crime)?" (Emphasis in the original.) The question does not specify whether it refers to a crime under current U.S. law or the laws of the country in which the crime might have been committed. In the Soviet Union of my youth, it was illegal to possess foreign currency or to spend the night anywhere where you were not registered to live. In more than seventy countries, same-sex sexual activity is still illegal. On closer inspection, just about every naturalized citizen might look like an outlaw, or a liar.


your rhetoric

lol you're a dummy

I finally saw Coco and cried like a fucking baby.

"unfortunately"

These fuckers have no shame. Especially after all the goddamn Sicilians they sent us.

For no particular reason,  I've been thinking about the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo and the grandmothers and the babies and children who were stolen from disappeared women during the Dirty War in Argentina.

Lol america

Don't worry. Stephen Miller will be welcome in polite society in the garbage heap that is DC even if he's caught on video grinding children into meat patties because we are too far gone for any of these monsters to face real consequences.

To crack a hilarious joke in front of a conservative audience, just randomly throw in a months old overplayed cultural reference. They'll love it!

But be careful because women making jokes is an attack on femininity, which is already threatened.

General Discussion / Re: home buying advice
My #1 piece of house buying advice: you think you're going to paint that wall a different color, but THAT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, so get over it.

god fuck this guy



what the fuck lol

Anyway, this is especially funny to me because a lot of the relatively minor anxiety and moderate to severe depression I've suffered throughout my life has been directly related to shitty treatment at the hands of men. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

lol wonder what intelligitimate is up to

If only Hitler had been accepted to art school. If only more models had paid attention to Trump at studio 54 in the 80's

If only Trump had done even more cocaine.

So is posting on TR, and both also have the added benefit of being extremely irritating to everyone else around you.

Oh look, it's one of these assholes being honest about how people like me are an existential threat to the United States.

My MIL was impressed that Trump shook KJU's hand "instead of bowing like his predecessor. "

This is the mentality we're dealing with here.
