  1. What is the context of the tweet. It looks to me as if he is skeptical of the Saudis
  2. Lots of people in the service industry don’t want a wage hike because they prefer tips.
  3. That's what taxes do: take money from the economy and give it to government. We could do with less government.
  4. Well, you cant cut taxes for the 160 million Americans that pay no taxes at all. So, you can argue that the tax break does nothing for nearly half the country before you even start talking about taxpayers. The truth is that there is no such thing as a meaningful tax cut that doesnt cut taxes for the 'uber wealthy' (how do you make a bleeding font?). This is just scare tactics for people who want the government to have the money instead of the economy. Isnt the military industrial complex funded by taxes?
  5. The top 1400 taxpayers pay more than the bottom 70%. That is one thousand four hundred people pay more in taxes than eight five million people. Any tax break that doesnt benefit the top isnt a tax break. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-14/top-3-of-u-s-taxpayers-paid-majority-of-income-taxes-in-2016
  6. Lol. The one drop rule is a racial purity rule concerning African Americans. Your getting your bigotry mixed up buddy.
  7. What’s his name?
  8. Trump should have the Cherokee and Delaware tribal leader visit the shire house for a cultural appropriation summit.
  9. He won the bet in so many ways.
  10. Very small. Likely less tha the average European American. Odds are everyone reading this post has as much or more Native American ancestry than Elizabeth Warren.
  11. Warren is kinda claiming to be Native American. https://mobile.twitter.com/elizabethforma/status/1051783184390664192/video/1
  12. I think this is probably true. Not sure how it helps anyone. Do you think Warren loses voters over this? Is this likely to turn out republican voters? It seems to me that this is just cable news filler.
  13. So, if I have an african american ancestor 10 generations back, can I claim to be african american. Very little effort needed.
  14. So, let me get this straight. Elizabeth Warren claims native american ancestry as if she is a part of the native american culture. She gets called out as not native american by Trump who challenges here to take a DNA test. So, she does take the test. The results find that she has an ancestor 6 to 10 generations ago. I think that this guy sums it up pretty well. ". This could support Warren’s claims, though if her ancestor is fully 10 generations back, she would be only 1/1024th Native American, a fact that critics would love to emphasize. THERE’S NO DNA TEST TO PROVE THAT SOMEONE IS NATIVE AMERICAN More importantly: who cares? Warren should never have made this claim to begin with. It doesn’t mean anything to possibly have 1/1024 Native American ancestry if she has no ties to Native American culture or politics otherwise. The test might prove she didn’t lie about family history, but it doesn’t tell us anything else useful, and plays into the dangerous ways that people already (wrongly) conflate genetic ancestry with culture." https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/15/17978144/elizabeth-warren-dna-test-native-american-genetics-ancestry-culture-identity-politics https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2018/10/15/warren-addresses-native-american-issue/YEUaGzsefB0gPBe2AbmSVO/story.html
  15. Not even close. Im not cheering Trump and Im not attacking Warren. Sorry if I dont fit into your little boxes. Trump is a troll.
