    Joseph, let me give you an analogy.
    Suppose you go to a doctor, and he tells you that you need to fix your diet. You decide to seek a second opinion, so you go to another doctor. He tells you the same thing. You go to doctor after doctor, until the 98th doctor tells you, “These doctors are in the pockets of the health food companies, no need to change your diet, just eat what you want!”
    Who will you trust?

    When Hashem took Adam through the world, he showed him everything, and then told him to take good care of it, not to destroy it. This shows that humans have the capability to destroy something, and should do their best to preserve the environment. (As heard from R’ Mordechai Becher)
    Hence, the natural selection should be B.

    Necause it wasn’t a left-wing shooting. This woman was a left-wing person. But she did not have a political motive.
    She shot up the place because they removed some of her videos, and put age restrictions on them. This had nothing to do with politics.

    If it’s to big to fail, it’s too big to exist. Amazon is too big to fail. If it fails, the economy comes down with it. It needs to be downsized.

    What I meant is that if a kosher restaurant meets the laws of halal, there is no reason they shouldn’t advertise for it and make more money through Muslim customers.

    OK, so a Muslim won’t trust them. But as long as teh restaurant keeps the halal rules, there is no reason it shouldn’t advertise as halal and have Muslim clientele.

    Amazon has gotten too big. If it went under, 566,000 employees would lose their job. It would very likely lead to an economic recession.

    @yehudayona, my mistake. I was thinking about Jones as I read it, and he came to mind first.

    And by the way, there’s a difference between Democratic Socialism and democratic socialism. I’m a democratic socialist, although I am a registered Democrat.

    @Milhouse, That’s right, no one bothered running. What’s sickening is that 20,339 people voted for Jones. They could have not voted. They could have written someone in. But they voted for a neo-Nazi, white supremacist, Holocaust denier. That is shameful.

    @AviK, he is not a member of Democratic Socialists of America. I am. There is no anti-Semitism, racism, or white supremacy in the organization.
    What he is a member of is the National Socialist Movement. He ran for mayor of Milwaukee on the National Socialist White People’s Party (which has been outlawed since, along with the American Nazi Party) in 1976.
    But Jones is not a Socialist. He’s a far-right extremist. The Nazi Party, which in full is the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, was not Socialist either. They were far-right extremists. They called themselves Socialist, although they were not. (North Korea calls itself the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. It is none of those things. If everything was the way it was called, North Korea would be a free country. The same applies with the Islamic Republic of Iran.)

    I agree with Midwest2. Had I been living in the 1950s, I would probably be mixed between the two parties.

    As Eisenhower once said, “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment, insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Their number is negligible, and they are stupid.”

    Seeing what’s going on in Washington these days, it seems his prediction is coming true.

    Joseph, in English, that’s a majority. She got more votes than any other candidate.
    RebYidd23, many people voted for a third party candidate. I remember Election Night, when Evan McMullin had a chance of winning Illinois. Stein got 1.2 million votes, and Johnson got about 3 million. So no, she won the popular vote.

    Joseph, why are you so anxious to live in a dictatorship? I’ll gladly pay for your one way ticket to Russia.
    AviK, FDR died naturally, not killed.
    And there’s no shortage of what to impeach over. The Constitution says “high crimes and misdeameanors”. Congress can decide what a misdemeanor is, which means that they can be impeached for blowing their nose on the wrong side of the street.
    Anyway, there’s no shortage. From refusing to implement Russian sanctions, to signing executive orders against religious liberty, to accepting money from foreign governments by making foreign dignitaries stay in Trump Hotel rather than Blair House, to “very fine people”, to the comments against Haiti, to obstruction of justice, to Flynn’s violation of the Logan Act, to firing Comey once he was about to potentially be exposed,to refusing to divest from his businesses, to undermining freedom of the press, and much more which is too much to list right now.

    @Health, the neo-Nazis came first. The entire rally was organized by Richard Spencer (if you don’t know who that is, there’s nothing to talk about).
    And you misunderstood what me and my fellow commenters were saying. Not everyone at that rally were neo-Nazis. But someone who demonstrates with them, while s/he might not be a neo-Nazi, is not a fine person at all.
    And @MTAB is absolutely right. It’s increasingly common to have anti-Semites supporting the state of Israel. Richard Spencer, for example, openly supports Israel. There are two reasons that that can happen:
    1. Many of these white supremacists believe that Jews should be in their own land, quarantined away from the world.
    2. It says in the Bible that the redeemer will come once all the Jews live in the land of Israel.

    So no, it’s actually not so uncommon to find an anti-Semitic supporter of Israel.

    He was the first President since Eisenhower without any major scandals, a path to healthcare, bringing the economy back up from the Great Recession of 2008, creating DACA, bringing respect to this country, adding consumer protection regulations, making a deal with Iran, brought an end to al-Qaeda, killing bin-Laden & Qadaffi, joined the Paris agreement, removed what was qualified as prison torture by the Geneva conventions, normalized relations with Cuba, created the Clean Power Plan, established net neutrality, passed the Fair Sentencing Act, passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, passed the Every Child Succeeds Act, gave healthy school lunches, expanded wilderness & watershed protection, cut veteran homelessness in half, reduced the threat from nuclear weapons, expanded overtime pay, crake down on many for-profit colleges, raised the GDP, cut the deficit, expanded the definition of hate crimes, reduced discrimation of former prisoners from potential employers, won major victories against housing & mortgage discrimination, expanded CHIP, improved food safety, & rebuilt the Gulf Coast after Katrina.

    @Health, I finally got around to reading the article. The author, in most of it, was merely stating his own opinion. The problem is that if you look at most public polls, the majority do want the statues removed.

    And you didn’t answer my question. As many of my fellow commenters wrote, not neccesarily was everyone there a neo-Nazi. If someone sees what’s happening by a neo-Nazi rally, and stays to protest with them, they’re not a fine person.

    And I’m not saying that the local and state governments bear no responsibilty. He is right that it didn’t have to be the way it was.

    I can tell that you’re merely grasping for straws by going off topic. Just answer the question:

    @Health, political correctness does not exist. It’s a term used by low-lives to put down something basic called manners. And for some reason, they don’t seem so happy being on the receiving end of “political incorrectness”. Jeff Sessions is not afraid of anything but ruining his career. It happened with Trey Gowdy, he doesn’t want it happening to him.
    Regarding yoru second comment, I read about the emails she sent Chelsea. They were unclassified information about climate talks. No crime here.

    Your claim is inaccurate. The statue was not put up when Lee was a hero. It was commisioned in 1917, and put up in 1924.

    I fully support Sen. Cory Booker(D-NJ)’s bill to remove all Confederate statues from the US Capitol, and place them in the Smithsonian museum.
    I’m aware that these are historical relics. That’s the point. Historical relics belong in a museum.

    @Health, that is not an accurate transcript. The following is a transcript, directly from the video.
    Reporter: You’re putting what you call the “alt-left” and white supremacists on the same moral plane.
    Trump: I’m not putting anybody on a moral plane. What I’m saying is this; you had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs, and it was vicious, and it was horrible, and it was a horrible thing to watch. But there is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left, you’ve just called them the left, that came violently attacking the other group. So you can say what you want, but that’s the way it is.
    Reporter: You said there was hatred and violence on both sides-
    Trump: Well, I do think there’s blame on both sides. You look at both sides, I think there’s blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it either. And, if you reported it accurately, you would say.
    Reporter: ____________________(unclear)
    Trump: And you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of a statue of to them, a very important statue, and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

    There you go.
    There may have been people who didn’t want the statue taken down that were not neo-Nazis. But the rally was filled with Nazi flags. And they were screaming Nazi slogans. And it was organized by Richard Spencer. Yes, that Richard Spencer. And there were people, if you can call them that, like David Duke and Chris Barker in attendance.

    If someone is at a rally, for whatever reason, and neo-Nazis are chanting their slogans, and they stay, they are not a fine person, let alone a very fine person. Period.
