Probably how it happened, probably.

It's more the fact Sisi didn't protect Coptic Churches knowing terrorists in Egypt have a habit of bombing them on Christian holidays. That to me isn't just ignorance, that's almost compliance. His refusal to do anything is disgusting. Saying it's a tragedy isn't doing anything. Israel recently closed off one of it's trade routes to Egypt iirc, as a response to Sisi's anaemic response.
There are troops and police force stationed on every street. Like literally, the street outside my house has an armored car and 3 armed troops, it practically looks like we got occupied. What could you ask for?
He's not just ignoring the attacks, you just can't stop every terrorist attack basically regardless of how many troops you have... at all.

Except for years and years we've had the option to opt out from most of this data s***. The difference is, now, you ain't got a choice.
This bill strike-down does not change the ability or lack of to opt out. Anything you could opt out of before you still can, anything you couldn't you still can't, etc. Nothing has changed.

He might have said they consent, he might even believe they let him/consent, but that doesn't mean they actually consent. Keep in mind we are talking about a man who built his campaign and is building his presidency largely on lies and hyperbole.
"You think you do, but you don't" is not a thing when it comes to consent, especially when you're fully mentally developed.

I'd really like to say that the glass-steagal thing is really not what caused the 2008 crisis or is causing the student loan/auto loan soon-to-be crisis.
The 2008 crisis was caused by the Community Reinvestment Act which basically made the government by 2000 force banks to lend to people that would have never got those loans otherwise based on some excuse of wanting to help poor communities, when they just didn't get them because as we've seen they're really bad to lend to. I mean basically 99.999999999% of ppl who deserved it would've gotten it from a normal bank, same for student loans so most of the government folk don't pay it back.
Glass-Steagal wouldn't have stopped it bc it doesn't prevent banks from buying those shitty securities for themselves(it prevented the same banks that hold deposits from issuing them for customers, but not from buying it for themselves). I mean, you could remake it and make commercial banks not buy for themselves but the separate banks that CAN issue loans will still issue these super-bad loans when they have to and will have to get bailed out. I mean, they're smaller but that's basically like cutting someone with a knife then telling them "dw I have good bandages" then downgrading it to a razor and saying "well at least now we need less bandages".

Dude that video is extremely biased, and so are their sources. A lot of their points also come from opinion. Like the the NASA budgets not being all that big ($18.4 billion dollars in 2011 btw).
Also, the thing they said about illegal immigrants not paying taxes is just straight up not true.
Illegal immigrants pay taxes, and don't reap any benefits.
Well actually, according to a study by the Center for Immigration Studies, half of illegal immigrants are working "off the books" , and illegal immigrants' children can apply for the WIC program. Also, if they have US-born children they qualify for SSI, TANF, SNAP, Medicaid, and Public housing and a few other word soup programs. Sure many illegals still pay taxes and aren't directly eligible off the bat but there's sort of a gap here.

The wall is unnecessary. Most of the illegal immigrants in the US are people who have overstayed their visas and aren't yet citizens because our immigration system is s***. I mean sure people hop the border and s***, but it's not nearly as common a story as you would think it is. IMO if Trump really wants to fix the illegal immigration "problem" he should start with immigration reform and not building a wall that will put us massively in debt.
No, only about 27 to 40% of them are. That's about 7 million people that came here just by border hopping using that 13 million illegals average statistic which is bigger than the whole population of Washington state.
