    Perhaps. Ask more questions / make more statements. Let's see how far we go.

    Is there any truth to the report that AOC was seen kissing Mike Pence (alone!) at Gainesville regional airport? Find out on page 136!

    Donald Trump's Republican Party is more like a combination of the pre Civil Rights Southern Democratic Party and the ant-immigrant, nativist Know Nothing Party of the 1840s and 1850s than the Party of Lincoln.

    I believe the prominent race in Hispanics ancestry is European & native, with African being a distant third

    Exactly. I've been alive for awhile now and have had plenty of people angry at me. Nobody, not a single person, has ever told me to go back to my country. I don't think it's much of a leap to say that's the case because I'm white.

    When you get a leak in your roof do you move to a new house or do you fix the leak because you love your house and would rather fix it than leave?

    I've seen people choose both alternatives

    Uh huh...and which is far more common? Leaving your house because there's a leak in the roof, or fixing the leak?

    I've owned 3 houses now. I made dozens of repairs to each of those houses rather than move dozens and dozens of times. I suspect almost everybody you know, yourself included, does the same. So save that ridiculous argument for someone else.

    Maybe I'm a bad person to ask.....I've been in real estate for 17 years and have been party to roughly 500 transactions.

    Very common to see people want to cut and run when a roof issue pops up. Yes, they'll fix the existing leak but I find it's very common that people who have houses in the 18-23 year of roof age, want to sell stating that the upcoming roof issues are a major motivator

    Maybe you're just making a ridiculous argument because you have nothing better? You don't actually expect people to believe that moving because there's a leak in your roof is anywhere near as common as simply fixing the leak do you?
