    Might want to do some research to see how your Avatar country handled "backwards" ethnic and racial minorities mate.
    With a widespread campaign to promote literacy and political participation? http://isreview.org/issue/82/educati...ian-revolution

    And by assembling and maintaining one of the most diverse polities in world history? https://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/bitst...pdf?sequence=2

    Even the CIA suggests that ethnic diversity in the SSRs continued to grow during the soviet era. https://www.cia.gov/library/readingr...0000292353.pdf

    Yeah, some groups got relocated. Collectivization was harder on some than others. Shit sucks, but that's different than the deliberate multi-continental genocide of an entire race carried out by the Spanish, French, and British in their quest for riches and "manifest destiny," justified by the supposed racial superiority of Europeans.
    Are you really trying to find a silver lining with soviet-era crimes?

    Stop posting.
    No, you nonce. I'm trying to show that Soviet era crimes have parallels in plenty of other conflicts involving supposedly "good" or "just" social regimes/ideologies/systems of political economy. Did you miss the part where I said "This shit is unacceptable?"

    Also the context was the Native American genocide carried out by Europeans. If we're gonna hand out awards for needless slaughter, sadism, and human degradation, the Spaniards beat the Soviets any day of the week.

    The interesting thing is that because Trump folks hate the GOP, they're not seeing this as a negative.

    I know you don't care but I am legitimately offended. It's a bit beyond the pale especially when the vast majority of the deaths from this storm aren't even going to be Americans but hey whatever it takes to make a cheap political point right? I'm not gonna engage this further but yeah it's in seriously poor taste.
    They were given plenty of warning. If they are too lazy to move out of the way then why should anyone help them. Lazy people gona lazy.

    And what about those too poor to evacuate? Or those who'd like to evacuate, but can't because people are hoarding fuel?

    Sad to say that many choose to stay due to the fear of looters in the aftermath. Add that to those without the means to self-evacuate and you have a potential tragedy.

    Is it only wishful thinking, when I say Trumph's impeachment odds just got way better by going against GOP?

    Pence looks like a much better GOP soldier-president.

    Trump is save as long as he retains his base. The GOP may hate Trump but they fear the backlash that would come from his supporters if they turn on him.

    So nothing will happen before the mid-terms.

    Most likely there will be a concerted push for Trump not to stand for a second term. Trump has a history of getting bored easily and he thought that being President was like a part-time job. So convincing Trump to declare himself the greatest president every before huffing off is their best bet atm.

    They probably shouldn't fear it right now TBH.. I mean if they get rid of him now there will be a shitstorm for a bit, but the next election is how far away? All but the most diehard people will have forgotten about it by then (ie, not enough to really do much next election).

    The mid-term house elections are next year, so there is no way the anger would die down by then.

    And while everyones' eyes are glued to the TRump shit show the GOP in the background are busy repealing regulations, defunding programs, and doing their paymasters' bidding while no one is noticing.

    Wife of Imran Awan is coming back to the US, wonder what kind of a deal the two of them have made.

    The midterms are in November 2018 during which all members of Congress and a third of the Senate is up for re-election. So about 15 months from now until the election with campaigns starting considerably before that.

    Bill Clinton's impeachment took ~5 months from the Judiciary Committee voting for an impeachment investigation to the final vote in the Senate. That was after ~9 months of grand jury investigation.

    What do you think the impeachment charges would be?

    This destroys your "They were selling info to Pakistan" theory though does it? If they were spies, even with the best deal in the world they'd be spending decades in prison and who would turn themselves in for that?

    I never said they sold info to Pakistan, just that they got money for some reason.

    Considering they got 4 times as high a salary as would have been normal, even for those family members that didn't do any work, it seems they provided some kind of shady service.

    The salary thing isnt a mystery, it's just a mistatement. That was their income but they werent paid a full time salary by anyone, they were paid montly retainers by 30 senators that in aggregate added up to 4x a full time IT staffer salary. That's just the benefit of being external-contractor rather than on the payroll in a salaried position - the more senators who sign them up the higher their "salary" (which is not in fact a salary)

    Were they being overpaid? Perhaps. But also perhaps not. If each of those senators went through an external agency they'd have been paying at least that much.

    Also don't forget the Tea Party. I honestly think that was the harbinger of things to come with the base getting really really ducking angry at being fed ideology by GOP politicians who never walked the walk.

    I have been made to see the errors of my ways and now whole heartedly accept Trump in my heart. He is the light that shines in the darkness. The only hope we have to hold back the tide of fucking foreigners, hurricanes and terrorists. How have i been so blind?
