Regarding the proposed rule “”, I am writing to voice my strong opposition. Immigrants pay taxes. If they meet the eligibility threshold for public assistance, they should feel safe to use them without concern of the government dinging their record and rendering them “inadmissible.” This country claims to be a land of freedom and opportunity for anyone to come and make a better life. These proposed rules seem antithetical to that and calculated to be cruel to people who need temporary assistance.
Some people in favor of these rules try to paint a picture of immigrants coming here just to “take advantage.” However, data shows they are less likely than native-born Americans to use these services, and when they do, they consume a lower dollar value of benefits. Refer to the study Immigration and the Welfare State: Immigrant and Native Use Rates and Benefit Levels for Means-Tested Welfare and Entitlement Programs by Alex Nowrasteh and .

Sessions is a United Methodist but clearly cares more about power than the words of Christ.
Recall that he cited the Bible in attempt to defend separating children from their families at the border.
Check out a Christian quoting the Bible to Sessions, Sessions calling it an "attack," and the other supposed believers in the room booing the guy quoting the Bible.
You’re fun, as always. ;]
Doesn’t have to cost much or anything. I was pretty proud of throwing an eye patch on my forehead last year and being Third Eye Blind.
I need Halloween costume ideas. I already considered and decided against shaving my head and going as Right Said Fred.

I love this thread and the author’s replies. I don’t recall my favorite when I learned them, but 7 x 6 = 42 is a current fave.
Co-sign. I was thinking the next live show should be a musical.

I didn't enjoy this as much on second reading. The nostalgia factor may only be good for one reading.

@okcupid You should allow everyone to select their pronouns, to help normalize it further.
It’s discouraging when OKC shows a higher percentage match on religion than ethics. In those instances I check and a lot of times it’s one of those answers. I guess at least the algorithm is working.
Some OkCupid answers that make me pass:
> Do you have a problem with racist jokes? No
> Which is more offensive: book burning or flag burning? Flag burning
> Should burning your country's flag be illegal? Yes
