Re: TM30 Clarification Received from Udonthani Immigration

Thats a weak reply its their country so they can do what they want , under that premise , china , north korea , iran etc should be able to do the evil things they do as its their country . Being their country does not give them the right to treat people like they do. Actually, it does. And the TM30...

You data seems slightly different than earlier submissions concerning the affects of tariffs?
Not my data, -- it's the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's data.

Re: U.S. Politics

. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is reporting that tariffs are having only a small and sporadic effect on consumer prices. This is actually born out in low inflation numbers in the US economy. Effect of tariffs on selling prices 7% - a significant upward effect 47% - no effect 10% - significa...

Re: U.S. Politics

I do agree with you on one thing. Few, regardless of whether Democrat or Republican, are looking at things objectively. It's all about whether or not the idea was Trump's. If it was, Dems will oppose it because they hate him. Republicans will support it because they're afraid of what he'll do to the...

Re: U.S. Politics

. . . Do you believe that Zogby's numbers are accurate? Or did you cite the poll as an oddity, an outlier? I stated why I posted the poll results. I even suggested if it was wrong and averaged with your poll that would still be a Republican advantage. Every poll I post is wrong. Every poll you post...

Re: U.S. Politics

So you're quoting a poll because you like its results (while simultaneously conceding that the results put this poll in a very small minority, thus calling the accuracy of those results into question by definition, at least to the extent that they warrant further examination). Isn't that precisely ...

Re: U.S. Politics

Re: U.S. Politics

Why are you quoting Fox News? Because it reflects results that you like? No. I started by looking at Pew Research, but it had no recent polls which asked the questions I was looking for. Then I did a Google search and Fox showed up first, so I looked at it. It was both recent and had the questions ...

Re: U.S. Politics

There will always be more polls with horrible numbers for Trump. ... Trump will be underwater in almost all polls. It has been that way since 2015 when he announced. The polls were wrong. But you can't have it both ways. If polls are unreliable, why are you quoting Zogby? Because you like his resul...

Re: U.S. Politics

. Oh my! Zogby Analytics Poll - Trump Approval Latinos - 49% Black Americans - 28% If these numbers hold up when it's time to vote in 2020, Democrats have no chance. As usual, the devil's in the details. Dig down into the details a little, maybe look at a different poll, and you get a very differen...

Re: U.S. Politics

... the establishment and dishonest media decided that Trump was corrupt, racist and a mobster. My view? He IS corrupt, he has some racist beliefs and tendencies, and he's not a mobster. Trump wants a merit-based system of immigration. Even a tiny country like Thailand has requirements that must be...

Gentlemen, this thread is about whether Hillary's email faux pas cost 20 agents' lives. It's not about Trump or Obama, or even Mueller's report. I'll be cleaning it up shortly.

Thank you, everyone, for your ideas and input. First, I've received numerous PMs and emails asking, and sometimes demanding, that a member or some members be banned from UM. No one has been banned from UM for over four years, since a former Moderator left UM. While he saw banning as a good way to c...

Re: PM notification not sent to my email?

No changes have been made to the system. One thing does come to mind, -- is it possible that your email box(es) is/are full? That might cause this type of problem.
