  1. Who do you feel was the better performer?
  2. I miss the Axl Rose who wasn't 300 lbs.
  3. Because Hair Metal isn't gay? I dunno, this: looks a lot gayer than this:
  4. Generally the first three months (100 days) are when a President is at his most powerful. There's usually a honeymoon period where the majority of the public are willing to give the guy a chance. A President's political capital lives or dies by public support. The first three months are also significant because they give an idea of how the rest of the Presidency will be; As before, a President is never again as powerful as in the first 100 days. The first 100 days are a benchmark also due to FDR's first 100 days and since him, each President has tried to live up to FDR's standard. So it's become like a "first trimester" grade of sorts.
  5. Izzy: "(Steven's) sense of swing was the push and pull that gave the songs their feel." With that thought in mind, should Steven and Izzy form a big band/swing band? This was like the Mr. Brownstone of the 1940s.
  6. What are Trump's amazing first 100 day accomplishments? The guy is in over his head. Instead of attacking, actually present evidence for your side of the argument.
  7. Question: When you joined the military, did you swear an oath to the Constitution, or to the President? The answer will tell you why the cult of personality surrounding Trump isn't healthy in our Republic.
  8. Cult of personalities are fun in third world dictatorships. They shouldn't exist in the US.
  9. Healthcare: During his Fox News interview with Bill O'Reilly airing before the Super Bowl, Trump announced that the timeline for replacing Obamacare had to be extended and that a replacement would probably not be ready until 2018. Republicans are limited as to how much of ACA they can undo as they do not have a 60-vote majority in the Senate. They also "must balance the interests of insurers and medical providers". According to the March 13, 2017 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) on the budgetary impact of the Republican bill to repeal and replace ACA over the coming decade, there would be a $337 billion reduction in the federal deficit and an estimated loss of coverage to 24 million more Americans. The Republican health-care plan was unveiled on March 6 and faced opposition from both moderate and conservative Republicans, such as the House Freedom Caucus. The American Health Care Act of 2017 (AHCA), a bill to repeal and replace the ACA, was withdrawn in Congress on March 24, 2017 due to lack of support from within the Republican caucus. Immigration: By April 3, according to ICE, there had been 35,604 removals in January and February 2017 compared to 35,255 in the same period in 2016. But the "tough rhetoric" and some "high-profile Ice operations" widely cited in the media resulted in widespread fear and panic within immigrant communities. In an AP April 20 interview, Trump said that, "The dreamers should rest easy". There are 800,000 young people protected by Obama's "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DREAMERS) who came to the U.S. as children and are living there illegally. Some of these "dreamers" in interviews with The Associated Press on April 21, said they "were not comforted by Trump’s pledge" particularly since the April 18 deportation of 23-year-old "dreamer", Juan Manuel Montes. Trump supporters who are "immigration hard-liners", such as NumbersUSA and Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, feel deceived by Trump's softening stance on DREAMERs arguing that "[h]is promise on DACA was pretty clear and unequivocal". Travel Ban: On March 15, a United States Federal Judge, Derrick Watson of the District Court of Hawaii, issued a 43-page ruling which blocked Trump's revised March 6 executive order 13780 on the grounds that it violated the First Amendment's Establishment Clause by disfavoring a particular religion. The temporary restraining order was converted to a preliminary injunction by Judge Watson on March 2. Wall: The Washington Post reported on April 25, that Trump had agreed to delaying funding for the construction of the wall until September to avoid a government shutdown.
  10. Obama was a weak president. Most of the things you posted either have nothing to do with Trump's own actions, or are symbolic. Again, a guy in a wheelchair did more in 100 days than Trump. Sad!
  11. Like what is he doing 'for the people' exactly? A guy in a wheelchair got more done in 100 days than Trump. I didn't say he's racist. He's just an idiot.
  12. In what respect has he stayed true to his word? Obamacare still exists. He couldn't even bring his party in line to draft a replacement bill when they've been making that their #1 priority for 8 years. The border wall hasn't been built, or even truly begun. No money has been appropriated for it yet, and he had to back away from the wall to avoid a government shutdown. He hasn't successfully gotten a single deportation order through the courts. He didn't pull us out of NATO, and is "renegotiating" NAFTA rather than pulling out of it as he said he would. His pick for the FCC is making moves to get rid of Net Neutrality.
  13. The Beach Boys > GN'R and all other hair metal bands.
