Well, if the earth is FLAT, what's on the bottom side?

What if the Astronauts who landed on the moon, accidentally went to the wrong side, bottom side and tried to land there?  Wouldn't the gravitational pull be just as great on the bottom as the top?  What about the edges, with the greater "mass" in alignment, would the gravitational pull be tremendous in that region?  If the sun rotates around the earth, how does it every get "dark" at night?  Do people live on the underside of the flat earth too?  How do the planets rotate around the Earth...?  How do we experience "seasonal changes" if the Earth is flat?

This flat earth stuff raises more questions than it settles!

You need to ask the little fat boy as they have been on the back side of the sun.    :lol:

What is it, and what is it used for?


Been using it for minor burns/cuts/scrapes/insect bites and cold sores for as long as I can remember.  I can feel a cold sore coming on and put it on and it gone in 1 to 2 days, before it becomes a full-blown sore.  A little bit goes a long ways.

The ONLY thing that I was expecting from Trump was a conservative justice.  I was hoping for the wall, a halt on Muslim migration and repeal of Bammycare.  Unless he delivers; it's going to cost the GOP bigly!
Nah, it'll cost the Establishment. Both party's are already in the hole as far as approval ratings go, with the Dims at 36% and the GOP at 42%, it's pretty hard to find a single person that believes anyone in either party is worth a shit.
Yes, the truth in these numbers reflects that more than half the nation despises either party, so no, it won't be a party issue, rather a targeted candidate issue.

Oh, and based on voter turnout, I think both figures are overstated by more than 10% each, should be Dims 26% and GOP 32% and even then, that's being generous.

Never hold up in the SCOTUS.

So if the Pubs hold the line on the budget and a CR is proposed then either the Dims let the CR pass to keep the govt. working OR they oppose the CR and let the govt. shut down.
I believe it's all theater, the Dims can't do a damn thing, but the Pubs use it as an excuse to pass another CR, meaning the sky is the limit and a mean old budget, tying their hands will just have to wait.
Both sides claim victory and both sides wanted a CR anyway.

The judge is full of shit, he can't, he simply hasn't the power to change anything.

Silly neophyte, it didn't go "Around" the earth, it bounced off the other end of the atmosphere.
How could it possibly go around something that is flat?
Look up at the moon, is it not round and flat as well? :lol:

You can even go to the Flat Earthers website and they'll tell you people that actually believe the earth is flat, are generally excommunicated from the forum. Even they don't hold onto this BS of a flat earth.
I think you're right, only an idiot Muscum could believe such nonsense.

I must be totally out of touch ...

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/25/california-judge-blocks-trump-order-on-sanctuary-city-money.html

"The news comes on the heels of the Department of Justice threatening on Friday to cut off funding to eight so-called “sanctuary cities,” unless they were able to provide proof to the federal government that they weren’t looking the other way when it came to undocumented immigrants."

"San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that the administration warning threatened billions of dollars in funding for each of them, making it difficult to plan budgets."

"In his ruling, Orrick sided with San Francisco and Santa Clara, saying the order "by its plain language, attempts to reach all federal grants, not merely the three mentioned at the hearing."

I'm at a loss on how a judge can restrict POTUS for directing the executive branch via EO to uphold the law and coerce cities to uphold the law. That's his job! Illegal immigrants are by definition illegal. How can a judge stay such a thing? He's approving of people that are helping others break the law - that should be grounds for getting dismissed, right? I've never witnessed a judge getting fired - it's time it happens. Isn't there some kind of Hippocratic oath that these guys take?

I guess it has to roll-over to another court to get a second look - takes a lot of time. I haven't heard where the previous EO on staying entry of immigrants from certain countries has gone. Will it be heard by a higher court in a week, month, year, ten years?

Simple majority in the House and the 60 vote threshold in the Senate to stop a filibuster. I think the democrats are playing with fire on this. If all the republicans vote for the CR it there is no way the democrats can blame the GOP. The snakes in the woodpile are Murkowski, Collins, McCain and Graham.

So if the Pubs hold the line on the budget and a CR is proposed then either the Dims let the CR pass to keep the govt. working OR they oppose the CR and let the govt. shut down.
