    Problem is, even with all that, there have been a few individuals who fell through the cracks in the vetting process- just last year, there was an incident where 8 people were let in who bypassed pretty much all the required vetting set for their nations of origin, even though the 2 1/2 year wait for the vetting process to finish already sounds extreme enough.


    There's also the issue that we're currently the most indebted country in the world. Our international credit score dropped below a AAA rating for the first time in the history of the US, and within the next 20 years or so, the debt and guaranteed retirement payouts are predicted to add up to $90 Trillion. We simply don't have the resources right now to handle massive amounts of refugees, regardless of the minor potential for terrorism to occur.

    Yes you are right. Eight people is a perfectly valid number to label all people from sixteen countries with the same brush and forbid all of them, including refugees running not only from tyrants, terrorists, but also from the bombs we are selves are dropping, from the land of oppurtunity. In addition to any green-card holders with Muslim sounding names. (Mohammed Ali was detained. Twice.)


    And it's not like this country was literally built and founded by immigrants.


    Also want to know what would fix the debt crisis? Taxes. That's how the government get its money. To pay off debts. Want to know who has the most money in this country? Rich people and corporations. Want to know who the Republicans are making tax hikes for? The poor and middle class. Want to know who's getting the tax cuts? The rich and corporations. Want to know where the money is being sent to? The military.

    Well I think everyone needs to take their political bullshit to a place where political bullshit is the topic to be discussed, you all are going to argue for the next couple pages, then get moderated in some form and everyone is going to leave the exact same opinion as before.

    Just trying to point out the system doesn't work optimally anyways. Yeah, there's a lot to be improved upon- tax streamlining for more equal revenue, revision of foreign policy, tons of stuff that could take months of extreme deliberation to solve. As it is, all I'm saying is we need to step back and get our shit together first before taking on unnecessary risks, even if it means hurting a few people's feelings and doing something some view as stupid.


    If this is going to continue, let's take it somewhere else.

    In reply to Epsilon584

    Yeah, pretty much.

    So, has everyone migrated over to the season five thread so I can stop following this one?  Fake notices because of bot posts are almost as annoying as the bot post itself.

    In reply to Sugarfire I think so. The posts haven't been about the show for a while now, anyway.

    I think it's best to think of it as being in some Final Fabtasy setting where a fantasy setting just progressed past our tech.

    There is a genre called Science Fantasy

    RWBY clearly falls into that.

    The 4 sessions by this loser

    Spring, a time of new life and hopes,

    beauty blossoms round every corner and the world is at joy,

    Summer, a time to relax and join together,

    the world builds up and improves and the world is at joy,

    Autumn, natural beauty falls from the trees,

    the dying begins and yet for some reason the world is at joy,

    Winter, cold and lifeless

    all is dead and for some reason the world is at joy.

    Humanity watches and takes joy from it 

    but Autumn has come for them and winter always follows

    no way to stop it 

    it's just natural

    So train your huntsmen and and build your defences 

    you can not stop the natural order no matter how hard you try

    all the luck in the world might save you 

    but all you have is a Bad Luck Charm 

    The sessions always cycle

    Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter

    life, peace, fall, death

    Was anyone else expecting a reveal about Qrow being Ruby's daddy? I was. Yeah yeah, I know. There was a tweet ages ago about her and yang being half sisters, but it's already been said that they alter the show sometimes based on things the audience wants. It's possible that this could be one of them. And it seems like they are laying on the hints and things very heavily as we progress through the show. Maybe it's just my wishful thinking making me see things I want to.


    EDIT: I mean, I've even got a list of pros, cons and possible theories as to why or how this could have transpired if anyone wants to see it and discuss it with me. It'd be nice to bounce the idea around. I know I'm not the only one to have suggested it before.

    Monty has flat out said no on this. He came down HEAVILY on this not being the case.

    Exactly, and while RT doesn't have the greatest history of "word of God", Monty does.
