    [–] Christian family who argued taxes 'against God's will' ordered to pay $2.3m bill StreetSharksRulz 0 points ago in worldnews

    You're either unfamiliar with what you're talking about or purposely being deceptive.

    You're talking about the military audit situation. The entire U.S. military only received $8.5 trillion for the entire period that study covered so even if they somehow stole every single penny (which they clearly didn't since ya know...we have the largest most well equipped military on the planet) it wouldn't even be half of $21 trillion. That number comes from financial statements and transfers with errors in them. That means means they found $21 trillion (that's one estimate by one professor, others have been much lower) in errors over a 17 year period. That doesn't mean $21 trillion went missing.

    If I had $100 and I accidentally wrote that I gave you $300, you transferred the money back and said you gave me $100 but mistakenly double counted it, there would be $400 in accounting discrepancies. That doesn't mean that the $100 suddenly became $400 and was stolen.

    Please don't spread misinformation.

    [–] Miami Cops Covered Up Fatal Motorcycle Chase, Panel Suggests StreetSharksRulz 13 points ago in news

    Except for the hundreds of innocent people killed in police chases every year.

    "Man this guy is going really fast that's super dangerous! Better also go insanely fast and scare him into going faster and driving even more dangerously...ya know to keep the public safe"

    Id much rather have someone get arrested at their house a few weeks later for running away from a speeding ticket than have cops and suspects playing out an action movie and potentially kill me.or my family while I'm trying to get home from work. Call me crazy.

    His statement just makes no sense. What does "this kind of power" even mean? She literally has absolutely minimal power. At most she has a few 18-20 something's working for her if that and even then she's at best just a very low level supervisor.

    [–] Air Force NCO behind racist online video separated from service - StreetSharksRulz 2 points ago in news

    It's just a silly statement. She's near the bottom of the totem pole. She has minimal power over anything.

    [–] Air Force NCO behind racist online video separated from service - StreetSharksRulz 10 points ago in news

    She's a random staff sergeant. It's the equivalent of a shift manager at best. Not quite sure what kind of power you mean.

    [–] Elon Musk’s brain-interface company is promising big news. Here’s what it could be. StreetSharksRulz 2 points ago in Futurology

    What? The poverty rate when Mao died was 88%. They instituted capitalist reforms starting in 1978 and it shot down to 4%. That government was responsible for killing 18-50+ MILLION of their own people through mass killings and starvation.

    [–] Fear of ICE raids leads some U.S. citizens to carry their passports StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in news

    What are you talking about? They were given a hearing in court, immigration courts absolutely have translators and they are always sent notices. Those notices are often not received because they don't give an address where they can actually receive the notices. I'm not sure what you want the courts to do?

    That's the whole point. They're looking for people who already had their court dates and were ordered out of the country or just didn't show up.

    You've already been told the previous times you posted this that the example you're giving turned out to be in the U.S. illegally and the extended time frame was because they were purposely trying to delay/appeal. Is there a reason you're still posting misleading information?

    I think you're confused on due process. Due process just means you're entitled to fair and equal treatment under the law. It doesn't mean that the process has to be entirely flawless. In that case literally every judicial system on the planet would be illegal.

    Border crossings declined because the low skilled labor market crashed post 2008 and there was much stricter enforcement. How exactly would Trump "manufacture" more people coming? Could it be because the economy is much stronger and there's now a climate where they can abuse loopholes in immigration law (for example everyone claiming asylum regardless of its validity)

    Also, what does that have to do with anything?

    Are you suggesting that the vast, vast majority of illegal immigrants aren't Hispanic?

    [–] Fear of ICE raids leads some U.S. citizens to carry their passports StreetSharksRulz -5 points ago in news

    the fact that they're correct 99.5% of the time and even then the vast majority are held for a few hours seems to point to the fact that there is oversight.

    Also, you realize that the person who was held for three years was being held because of appeals and it turned out they weren't actually a US citizen right?

    Probably not, unless you happen to have the same name as someone with a deportation order, while being in a location they're raiding and being a naturalized citizen who doesn't speak English as a first language AND they make a mistake.

    Mistakes happen, but looking at the numbers they're extremely rare. This is just fear mongering.

    I'm not quite sure what people want. It seems like the process is something like 99.5 - 99.8% accurate. Demanding that either you're 100% accurate when dealing with hundreds of thousands of people or you don't do anything at all doesn't seem reasonable to me.

    [–] Fear of ICE raids leads some U.S. citizens to carry their passports StreetSharksRulz 8 points ago in news

    ~200/year from what I can tell. Most of them look like administrative mistakes like the person has the same name as someone they're looking for or became a naturalized citizen at some point but the paperwork got messed up. They aren't going around and rounding up random people.

    That was a very complicated case and it actually turns out he wasn't a U.S. citizen. FYI

    Follow up on that from a poster below. It was a very weird case where it was like citizenship through proxy because his father was a naturalized citizen but his mother wasn't and they never married and a bunch of other weird stuff.

    TL;DR: He wasn't actually a U.S. citizen.

    That's not really true. It depends on the category and country. Yes, if you're in one of the least priority categories AND from a country with a massive waitlist like Mexico it can be that long. If you're from a priority group and from a country without a huge backlog it can be under 3 years. It depends.

    Also, it's not really up to them if they "can wait". They're asking to enter our home.
