Because it really is irrelevant? It was likely that her parents told her that she was X% native, which was told to them by their parents, and so on. That #### happens a lot. My wife thought she was Italian and German. That was the story from generation to generation since her parents landed at Ellis Island. After genetic testing, turns out she's Greek and Polish. Wow, now that you mention it, that lying bitch! Now I'm being forced to serve her with divorce papers and inform INS. If she lied to me about this, what else is she lying about???

I guess I sometimes listen to podcasts at the gym but they're usually comedy podcasts when I just want background noise.
Driving, walking from place to place, at the gym, while I'm cooking, whatever. I get through probably 8-10 hours of podcasts in a week. Of course, I'm usually listening to them through a podcast app rather than youtube.

An hour or so of podcast time is a lot less time than it would take to read and process the Mueller Report (trust me, I've read significant chunks of it) and given that people seem to care about American Politics in this thread, it doesn't seem like a huge burden if you want a good understanding of it.

It’s all good and fine to laugh at the monkey flinging poop at the zoo but eventually if you’re still standing in front of him asking for more you have to start to wonder who the problem really is.
4 more years of Trump would make all of your heads explode..

Can't wait..

I'm now an American citizen along with my original Canadian citizenship.

Part of the reason I attained citizenship is because I wanted a say in what happens in the country I will likely live the rest of my life. My political affiliation varied while I was in Canada, but mostly I was center-right in terms of ideology.

So I don't fit anything you just said in any way.

I'm an American, who complains about the president of MY adopted country, because he's literally ruining the foundations the nation was built upon, but of course what happens in the U.S. intimately affects what happens in Canada due to the close ties of the nations. He is negatively affecting both countries of which I am a citizen.

More to the point, it is the job of an informed electorate to hold their elected officials accountable. Democracy doesn't just happen at the voting booth. It's a full time job, and all information must be presented, digested, and weighed to determine if the candidate should be re-elected or replaced. That's an effective democracy, so all I see is democracy in action.

But since you're such a big Trump fan, I'm guessing you prefer totalitarian fascism just so that the libtards can be owned. Congratulations, you are the architect of the demise of your own freedoms and liberties.

Edit: oh and look at the lazy edit once you realized your original comment was off-base. Yet it clearly supports my last comment. Well done you.

Rube, LegalEagle on YouTube has done a few shorter videos on "The Mueller Report" if the Sam Harris dissection is too long.

I assume you live in Canada. Why would you want Donald Trump as president? He is a bad president for Canada.

He thinks Canada stabbed him in the back.

Trump wishes to bully Canada into submission. He also happens to be a clown.

It's human nature. People like to have one of their own in power.

I like how "Trump Supporter" is the line for left-wing from a MAGA perspective.

Like, there are tons of us who bicker over canadian politics in the Fed/Provincial threads, but are perfectly in agreement that Trump is a dangerous moron.

True believers are whack

For anyone who uses Audible, the full Mueller Report is available on Audible as a free download. I've been making my way through it on my commutes.

The POTUS just tweeted an edited version of Pelosis presser claiming she was drunk

https://twitter.com/statuses/1131728912835383300

And in true dictator fashion, ordered everyone to assist Barr in his investigation into the investigation

The President of the U.S. sharing a doctored video like that is grotesque.

It's been said many time already...........he is not mentally well. At all.

Is it doctored or merely edited?

Of course, he's the last person who should be criticizing anyone's diction.
