Religion and Philosophy / Just how many priests have been accused of sex crimes?

A database of accusations against Roman Catholic clergy regarding sexual abuse of minors and possession of child pornography--US priests only (and it's still huge).

As I saw it put, the Mafia has better standards than the Catholic Church, because if the mob found out that some of its members were raping kids, they'd off them.

Against "evil-rapist-Mexican-Jobstealers" , against NAFTA, against TPP.

But he proposed policy solutions there (stupid ones, generally, but nonetheless). Most of what Clinton talked about was personal attacks on Trump.

And here's two more: raising the minimum wage (though he also said it should be eliminated), and raising taxes on the rich (though he also said those should be lowered).

Oh, and that pharmaceutical companies are ripping off and effectively killing Americans (which is true, but he changed his tune on that one after one meeting with pharma lobbyists... but that was after he'd won).

Trump--in his stupid, idiotic way--talked about issues and proposed policy solutions. Clinton didn't.

I see you were part of that focus group.

You win elections by giving people something to vote for, not just something to vote against.


Wasn't that like 90% of Trump's campaign? Being against Clinton, being against everything Obama stood for, being against everything Democrats and liberals stand for?

Build the wall? Withdraw from TPP? Renegotiate NAFTA? Get out of the wars (or take out their families, depending on the day)?

And...
