    Oh :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

    Tucker is getting it tonight - https://twitter.com/search?q=Tucker&src=trend_click&vertical=trends

    "We disagree with Tucker Carlson on the issues, but no one should ever lose their mail. Joe will make sure the USPS receives the funding it needs to prevent this from happening, and end Trump and DeJoy's efforts to sabotage it so that people like Tucker can get their mail on time."

    I guess that's the problem with freedom of speech, people can BS and lie to the public with no consequences either. Not saying I'm for Marxism, just saying there's got to to be a middle ground where folks can have a voice and have confidence in what they hear. The polarization is killing Democracy.

    I never took your words out of context... as you can see below

    Cannuck said:
    Integration is not easy when people aren't will to accept them for their own cultural values. Must everyone be the same? I understand what privilege is, same happens in Canada - minority rules.

    My answer:
    Excuse me but, when someone enters my country illegally and is not willing to integrate, that person can go to hell. I really have no fu*king patience for that type of person!

    The US, and to a lesser degree, Canada, are among the easiest places in the world to assimilate. A little too easy I would argue. If the host country does not value its own culture, then you end up with tribal division.

    Immigrants should be expected to appreciate and respect the culture they adopt. I could go to any number of bars filled with Westerners here grumbling about how much Japan sucks - yet some of them have lived here many years. Worse is when an immigrant community demands the host culture change to accommodate their feelings. For example, demanding that France abandons free speech and recognized blasphemy as a crime.

    To people who arrive in a new country and then spend all their time talking about what's wrong with it, I have simple advice. Just leave. Go back out the way you came. Problem solved.

    Not to say nationalized citizens shouldn't have the right to complain and work for change. But they can once they have shown a willingness to contribute to the society and a respect for it.

    I was referring to legal immigrants and by association, natives of the country itself. Your understanding and use of the English language could use a little polishing IMO. :xf.wink:

    If I wanted to immigrate to Portugal, I would study and speak Portuguese, not just the curse words :xf.cool:

    I spent a fair amount of time travelling abroad, living in different cultures. I speak about 7 languages (poorly, lol). But at least I try to adapt and/or I move on. Why do you think I left in the first place? Alot had to do with people attitudes at home - intolerance, injustice, world economies, recessions etc. and I had better opportunities elsewhere, plus I wanted to see how other people lived. I never heard too many Westerners complaining about their situation, except the ones who couldn't adapt. I heard and experienced a fair share of discrimination from those whose countries I resided though. It helped when I was able to hold a conversation and share experiences - building bridges, not dams. (y)

    You never mentioned legal immigrants in your post. And I was referring to Illegals. As for my lack of understanding and use of the English language all I can to is to apologize and say: I wish I was perfect... like you!

    If you want to immigrate to Portugal, you needn't worry about learning the language. All you need to do is to come in illegally, making sure you throw away all your ID cards before landing.

    You will then be put in a 3 or 4 star hotel with all the free benefits, including pocket money (that the native Portuguese don't even dream of getting) and then just apply for refugee status.

    We, the taxpayers will be helping you during your stay here. No need to worry... just be happy!

    During the time you wait for your refugee status to be accepted you may, if you want, learn to speak the language, using your cellphone with the free internet you get, as one of your many privileges!

    That speaks volumes - nearly 1/4 of the vote not affiliated with either Rep's/Dem's, not surprising...

    Nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes, that's how we learn, but some never learn from their mistakes and are doomed to repeat them.

    You don't have to throw away your ID cards in Canada, just be a legitimate refugee, and you get the same benefits as you do in Portugal, do you hear me complaining? :xf.frown: We get alot of very smart, hard working people come to this country in order to escape from war due to other countries' foreign policies.

    Thanks for making the correction, I understand your point. Your understanding and use of the English language has improved since our first discourse :xf.cool:

    *edit: I also have to edit my posts for spelling errors and omissions, so as to make my point more clear. My satellite uplink also interrupts, that and the fact that I have had to resort to VPNs in order to be able to speak my peace - the censor ops would rather people not be able to communicate.

    If you were to get Islamic terrorist attacks as frequently as we get in Europe you'd be complaining a lot.

    The beheading of the French teacher last week was done by an illegal Muslim from Chechenia. That's the thanks he gave to France for generously accepting him. It's never ending. In another generation or two, several countries in Europe will have Muslim majorities.

    Why the hell should Europeans be subjugated to Sharia laws? It's already happening in many parts of Europe and as their numbers increase it will get worse. Islam is totally incompatible with other religions. All religions believe that everyone is equal, except for Islam that believe they are superior to all other religions.

    I got the documents dude. We've been studying their mailing habits all year, expecting something like this. I just waited and grabbed it when I saw it. I get a big bonus now, I also made copies so I can leverage some people with it.

    For the record, those earlier screen grabs are true about Tucker:

    Judge Rules Tucker Carlson Is Not a Credible Source of News

    [In] the context of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the Court finds that Mr. Carlson’s invocation of “extortion” against Ms. McDougal is nonactionable hyperbole, intended to frame the debate in the guest commentator segment that followed Mr. Carlson’s soliloquy. As Defendant notes, Mr. Carlson himself aims to “challenge political correctness and media bias.” This “general tenor” of the show should then inform a viewer that he is not “stating actual facts” about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in “exaggeration” and “non-literal commentary.” … Given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive with an appropriate amount of skepticism’ …

    Adam Deangelis, who made the recording of the vote fraud scheme in Michigan, comes on a podcast to discuss the recording.

    You're a smart guy, you know that governments don't always act in the best interest on behalf of their people. For instance, dissonant voices and truth seekers not following agenda silenced, marginalized etc. The closer one gets to the truth...:zippermouth: you get my drift. Here's another instance of China working behind the scenes:

    10 point deduction for crying in the Political Thread. There is no crying in politics. You're not allowed to cry over situations you have control ever. You can join Gilsan on the bench.
