general non-furry discussion / Re: What really "grinds your gears"?

Weird fastener sizes. 23mm? Really? Really?! You have to search to find a wrench for that, let alone a wrench that will actually reach where you need it too.

*grumbles something about channel locks and shade-tree maintenance*


I totally agree. It seems every manufacture comes up with a different
size or idea.  We need standard that should be world wide. I  vote for
metric all the way.

President Trump continues to call immigrants criminals and rapists. I think
Trumps right wing friends have convinced him that this is true. In the
past Trump was more of a democrat. Trump never seems to have any
policy of his own. It's always someone elses idea or desire.

Immigrants don't come here to to create lawless gangs. They want
a life of peace where they can have a family like the rest of us do.
As a group they are more lawful than any other group in our nation.

Seems every generation wants to claim this nation as their own. Even
though their ancestors came here as immigrants. In the 1850's it was
Germans, Chinese and Irish we were against, by the end of the 19th
century it was eastern Europeans. Now it's Latin americans. Our
country is one of immigrants. No one but  the indigenous American
Indians can call our land their own.

The far right is using Trump to their own ends. Trumps is a self centered
ego maniac who lives to be praised by others. The GOP didn't want him at
first, but found that he would follow their lead and sign on to their policies.
Now Trump under the control of the far right holds congress hostage.

I could call President Trump Evil, but it's not him that is evil it's those
who control him that are evil. Trump is nothing but a tool of the far right.
A group who's fascist ideas are pushing our country to abandon freedoms
for minorities, women and the LGBT.

It's sad but we can't believe anything the Trump administration was to 
claim. They change their stories from hour to hour and day to day. They
want to hide everything. They won't let anyone see how they a re treating
the kids they separated from their paraents. Even the first lady supported
the president more than the children. She even wore a coat that said I
done care do you on the back. Trump tried to lie and say it was speaking to
the news media.

They won't allow any media or congressmen to see the kids,
instead they want us to believe the videos they give to us.
Videos that are obviously designed to show the public that
everything is fine and that the kids are happy. You can be
sure Trump was really upset (likely screaming like a 3
year old) when the audio of kids crying for their parents
was released. I actually heard Trump whining like a child
being told NO.during one of his speeches.

Not all of those told to take the kids wanted to do it, but if they didn't it would
mean they would be fired, and if they talked they could be prosecuted. Why?
Trump claims it's all about national security. It's more about Trumps security
than that of our country.

Now they are claiming they are returning kids to their parents in the hundreds,
but there isn't any real evidence to really prove it. It's likely just another lie.
The Trump administration is now trying to change a court ruling so they can put
kids under unlicensed unlimited care.

The Trump administration is spending 10's of millions trying to stop immigration
when they could be working to the cause instead. When we return dangerous
 criminals to a third world corrupt country it just makes the problem worse.

I'm glad you liked it Iara!  Some tounge-in-cheek humor, albeit not the best.  But I had fun.
Maybe the next one will be more serious.  :D

I really want to write something like a section of Reynard the Fox in the traditional verse style and vocabulary and keep to the tradition.   If would be fun.   But I would want to do well so that I could do it justice.

Probably I will just write about something contemporary that I know.

Also on another note, I know my style is not sophisticated, and my intention is for fun only.  I do not mean to detract from the seriousness and quality style of others who post here.

Oh now the GOP stands up for the kids. The crocodile tears are flowing
fast after Trump signed to stop the seperation of kids from their
parents.  A week earlier they had nothing to say.

President Trump all but swore he couldn't stop the family seperation,
then suddently he was able to do it.  Typical of this president to lies
every time he opens his mouth.

The Trump  administration is requiring military lawyers to act as
prosecutors to help convict immigrants.  None to defend them.
 Judges are  dragging 4 year olds into court. Even to say they are
smart enough to understand their rights  under our law. Such
judges should be impeached. and disbarred permanently.


Even though Trump signed an order to stop the separation of families, he
isn't ordering the reunification of the thousands of kids who have already
been separated from their parents. So they are still being held by the
Trump administration. Kids from babies and older. Leaving them to cry for
their parents who they may never see again. They may end end up in foster
care subject to who knows what kind of treatment. Foster care isn't always
a safe place for children.  Especially kids who may be mentally upset or
disturbed due to Trumps ordered  mistreatment. 


In reality the Trump administration is guilty of child abuse and child theft
if done by any individual or a care center would be prosecuted and tossed in
jail.

Trumps excuse? National security. Yes these kids are considered a danger to
our security.  The same clarion call that every generation wants to use against
immigration.
 
Oh and to those who think Trump is looking out for Americans. He hires
foreign workers to  work in his hotels and resorts. Over 99% of them.
