I think Raz was trying to be a smartass to Tim's misspelling of yield, rather than getting the technical definition.

No, for once I wasn't being an asshole.  I actually didn't know what that meant.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

"I love how Raz just becomes the caricature for exactly what he is claiming doesn't actually exist...and he doesn't even know it! He is 100% oblivious to the irony of his own statements." - Berkut telling a lie.

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

Trump wants to buy Greenland. I hope we get a better price than we did for the Virgin Islands.

Rhode Islanders making me proud

Man in pick-up truck drives into group of ICE protesters in Rhode Island

The protesters, part of Never Again Action, were outside the Wyatt Detention Facility protesting the treatment of migrants in ICE detention.

By Ben Kesslen
A man wearing a guard uniform in a pick up truck drove into a group of ICE demonstrators on Wednesday night outside the Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, Rhode Island.

The protesters, picketing outside the facility that has contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, were organized by Never Again Action, a Jewish group formed in the past two months calling for the end of ICE detention, and Amor, a Rhode Island-based immigrant rights group.

Amy Anthony, a spokesperson for Never Again Action, told NBC News that earlier in the evening, a group of around 400 people had gathered outside the facility to protest, the second time the group has planned an action outside the detention center.

As the protest died down, about 30 demonstrators linked arms and sat in the facility’s parking lot entrances to block staff from leaving or entering, Anthony said. The group was peacefully protesting when seemingly out of nowhere a man in a pick-up truck drove towards them, slowing down just before hitting the crowd, footage of the incident shows. The video then shows the driver continuing to drive through the crowd, as protesters scream and try to get away from the car.

Anthony described the interaction that took place just before 10 p.m. on Wednesday as “terrifying,” saying the “brazen act" shows the driver of truck believed he is "beyond reproach.” She said several people suffered non-life threatening injuries from the incident, and some were brought to a local hospital, including an elderly protester whose leg was fractured during the incident. She also added a father was in the crowd with his three children.

Never Again Action believes the driver worked at the privately-run facility, based on his uniform that can be seen in the video. While police were at the protest, they did not intervene, Anthony said, and video of the incident shows the protesters yelling at the driver, who appeared unfazed by the interaction. Soon after the pick-up truck almost hit the crowd, Never Again Action says other guards at the facility pepper-sprayed the crowd and escorted the driver of the truck into the facility.

Representatives for the Wyatt Detention Facility, the Central Falls police, and ICE did not return NBC News’ requests for comment.

The protest was one of over 30 demonstrations Never Again Action has held around the country in the past two months, and Anthony said despite last night’s incident, the group will remain steadfast in their mission to free all migrants from detention.

“We will not be deterred by the violence that was taken against us last night,” she said, adding that if a person she believes to be a guard at the facility is behaving this way in public, she can't imagine what his behavior looks like behind closed doors.

“People are being harmed in ICE custody every day," Anthony said. "This is exactly why we are doing what we’re doing.”

So, Rep.s Tlaib and Omar have been banned from entering Israel after Trump tweeted that it would be weak if they let them in.
“Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. By true, I mean...false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end, isn't that the truth?

The answer is no.”

I am slowly getting warmed up to the idea that he, I mean his team, are doing this on purpose. They do manage to make it appear in the news like the face of the Democrats is an antisemite not too bright Mulsim lady.

Not that it is not terribly wrong to ban them based on their religion, but the stranglehold Trump and his ilk continues to have on national and global conversation is impressive and terryfying.

I am slowly getting warmed up to the idea of how Orbán got and keeps power...
"Love to my country actuates my present conduct, however it may appear inconsistent to the world, who very seldom judge right of any man's actions."

"...this was a bitter tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He served but found no pride in service. He fought but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself."

My conscience hath a thousand several tongues,
And every tongue brings in a several tale,
And every tale condemns me for a villain.
Richard III, 5. 3

I think your wording probably left the wrong impression. "Not that it is not terribly wrong to ban them based on their religion" is a double negative that, unless parsed carefully, comes out sounding like "Not that it is terribly wrong to ban them based on their religion."

Let's just move on.
