The root of Dave's ignorance is a mental health issue; his anxiety disorder(s) and the resulting defence mechanisms he employs.

Also, no America is not actually better than this unironically :911:

New York Sues Trump Foundation

New York's Attorney General sues Trump Foundation and its directors ( Donald Sr., Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric), over misuse on non-profit funds for systematic self-dealing in personal enrichment, campaign funding and legal fees. It likely won't lead to jail time, but does illustrate the paucity of ethics in the Trump family.

It might lead to dissolution of the Trump Foundation and ban the individuals from running a non-profit for a number of years.

As I posted in another thread...
I would like to imagine the NY AG deliberately waited a day or two, in order to drop this on Trump's birthday today, June 14th.

Happy birthday, President Trump.  May this be the beginning of many more years of lawsuits & indictments, you bloated geriatric.

For most people, life often has a way of derailing/detouring their own particular dreams & pursuit of happiness.

Two deaths in the 21st century had a personal effect on me.
Perhaps because I felt they were living the perfect life... profoundly talented, doing exactly what they loved & being well compensated for it, while still being genuine & approachable. 

One was Steve Irwin, who tragically died being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The second was Robin Williams, who was a casualty of his own physical/mentally health issues.

I now have to add Anthony Bourdain as the third name on my list.

Have it your way...

We should avoid using the term tr*nny

Professionally speaking, yes.
TR speaking, no.
Bart's a tranny.
If there is a God, Dave would have been born in some century long long ago, where his ideas would have been valued.

Instead, Dave has to meander on,  in his antiquated backwards ways,  into the modern 21st century.
Or perhaps there is a God and he has a sense of humor.
It's a broader statement of primitive/archaic vs innovative thinking. Which somehow belongs in your threads.

72 more Sears stores to bite the dust as sales plunge and loses mount

Just think,  if  Sears had the long-term vision to make an early pivot from their archaic catalog operation to an innovative online presence, they would have become Amazon.
Nobody call Dave Hawkins a coward and live to tell the tale.

Look at all the replies to rambling Dave in the ARSE forum.

Dave is not the coward we need, but certainly he is the coward we deserve.

I think when Dave says 'freedom of religion', he means 'freedom to practice some version of fundamentalist Christianity'. No other religions need apply.

Meanwhile, another POV...

Memorial Day

Scholars,[64][65][66][67] following the lead of sociologist Robert Bellah, often make the argument that the United States has a secular "civil religion" - one with no association with any religious denomination or viewpoint - that has incorporated Memorial Day as a sacred event. With the Civil War, a new theme of death, sacrifice and rebirth enters the civil religion. Memorial Day gave ritual expression to these themes, integrating the local community into a sense of nationalism. The American civil religion, in contrast to that of France, was never anticlerical or militantly secular; in contrast to Britain, it was not tied to a specific denomination, such as the Church of England. The Americans borrowed from different religious traditions so that the average American saw no conflict between the two, and deep levels of personal motivation were aligned with attaining national goals.[68]
Memorial Day has been called a "modern cult of the dead". It incorporates Christian themes of sacrifice while uniting citizens of various faiths.[69]
Summit is off.

This official White House statement is a masterpiece of passive-aggressive excuse-making.

I can't say for certain who actually penned it.
But the oozing rationalization defense mechanism appears to have Stephen Miller's  DNA all over it.
