Trump is giving the Medal of Freedom to his golf buddy.
Eh, lots of athletes have gotten it.

Like him or not, Tiger did break some barriers in golf and is one of most influential athletes of all time.

While it can be difficult to separate the cool building from the weird rituals and creepy chanting and make believe stuff, I'm on team cool building.

He said "perhaps" about the water planes. He said "Must" about acting quickly. These moron frenchies debated the planes instead of reading the important part. Should have acted quicker ffs and we'd still have those priceless treasures. Trump derangement syndrome at its worst.

Would you have put out the flames if they were hosting a Weezer concert inside? You've got to be pretty emotional about a particular subject to say the bolded.

Yeah I mean all those roman and greek buildings are a super cool look into great human achievements in architecture and they were mostly built around silly God worshipping, once we reach that Star Trek-type civilization where we collectively LOL at religion the Notre Dame Cathedral would have been a similar piece of work.

I think the colosseum would be a better analogy.

Millions of slaves (serfs) and poor peasants died earlier and poorer because of the taxes imposed for Notre dame.

Not to mention it was propaganda to help build a global empire/pedofile ring.

I'm still sad, and id also put a fire out in the colosseum.

Westminster Abbey is also a fair comparison...

Trump is giving the Medal of Freedom to his golf buddy.
Dude, Henry Kissinger and Dick Cheney have them. It's no different from the Nobel Peace Prize.

That and Tiger did a lot for golf and for race relations in what is normally an elitist game played mostly by white, upper-class racists.

Heís back in the US now but hereís a story of a dude that was deported while trying to go to work, leaving his 12 year old daughter in the US. Oh and his wife was a veteran that was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. ****ing infuriating.

Thanks... I'd only even consider sending it to a few candidates, but I can't imagine some random unsolicited e-mail actually making its way to anyone important enough to get it into a candidates' speech. Perhaps I underestimate the ability of information to flow into a campaign, but I just don't see it...

Honestly, I've thought about it. I don't think it's a realistic possibility for the time being and I do love what I do. It's one of the few things I'd transition to from this, and still love, but I also have moved around a ton over the last few years and would be a carpet bagger almost anywhere I ran. I also think it might be tough to go from poker pro to running for office.

As for the broadcasting part, it's what I went to school for and I worked in sports broadcasting from '08 through '14 and then part-time after that. I'm a better public speaker than writer, in my opinion.

I hope your plan includes spending long enough in a swing state to establish residency before you GTFO.

Trumpkins love that line. The facts involved don't matter at all, the actual liberal response from real people doesn't matter at all, the only thing that matters is that Trump owned the libs and his dumb fans cheered.

I haven't opened the CP thread on this but also I don't need to, I already know what's inside, all the Trump fans love it and none of them care one bit if mayors actually have their arms wide open.
Yup, basically. It's always projection, and they believe we're as full of **** on immigration as they are on like everything. So they think we hate/are scared of immigrants too, and are just lying because politics. Thus, even if we welcome immigrants in, they'll think we got owned... But in the end, who cares? We get to do the right thing and our cities get to prosper!

disagree with this take--all confederate monuments need to come down

also we're certainly not worse off for losing that piece of history, we can just deny it ever existed like the holocaust.

Obviously God wanted it to burn and people like you are against god here, shame.
