  1. Booked our first family trip last night. 7 Nights/8 days from October 13-20 at Coronado Springs. Got a special rate for the preferred room and somehow there was still an ADR available at Akershus for 6:30 pm on October 19th, which just happens to be my oldest daughter's birthday. Extremely excited. Wanted to send a big thanks out to @glvsav37 for recommending Stepehn Conti, a personal vacation advisor. He was great and really detailed in all the cost comparisons, etc. Thanks for the recommendation. I'd be curled up in the fetal position by now if I had to do all this on my own.
  2. Yeah, I mean boil it down to this simple but accurate statement: Whoever wins PA wins the presidency. Biden can certainly win here.
  3. How about just the actual definition? Racism noun prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
  4. Looks like you underestimated this board.
  5. You can compare whatever you want. It is ridiculous to compare potential for deportation to the opening salvo for mass genocide. I can’t believe this is not clear. And I’m not defending mass deportation or claiming that there aren’t real palpable reasons these people came here or denying that sending them back opens up all sorts of other moral quandaries, so please don’t suggest that I am. You made a statement that I think was ridiculous and only serves to provoke, not move anything along in the discussion. You are free to disagree with me.
  6. You are comparing people here illegally being concerned that they may be deported back to their country of origin to Jews during the Holocaust that were systematically rounded up and burned in ovens. It’s a ridiculously offensive comparison, but okay.
  7. The “smell test” were your words not mine. Do you think having a more accurate understanding of how many people are here illegally would be good for policy or not good for policy? I’m not arguing on behalf of the GOP, I’m simply stating that having that information versus not having that information is different. In my opinion having that information would be better. You say there are better ways to glean that information, okay. I honestly don’t know if that is true or not true. Why don’t we have that information currently?
  8. No. Its been a question on almost every census ever conducted in this country. It's a question that is asked by most other countries' censuses (often times in addition to questions like country of origin). The simple rationale is that it is to get a better picture of the makeup of this country. The point of the census is to gather information. This would do that. I understand Trump's xenophobia and racism are a disqualifying element in the smell test you reference above, but it shouldn't be. It is a valid question and one that would help shape legislative policies moving forward. Even if you are the most left leaning, blanket amnesty supporting person, you should recognize that knowing what the actual number of people here to whom you are trying to grant citizenship would be a helpful, probably necessary tool.
  9. I don’t know. I’m sure some people lie about a lot of questions. There will definitely be a margin of error.
