The evolution question is simple.

They don't understand that evolution consists of preserving "favorable" mutations.

They like too many people believe that evolution somehow *creates* new useful changes. The more or less think it has a "goal". (Same idea is seen in far too many SF TV shows where something "evolves" someone to smarter/stronger/better human)

My gramma was using that version too, till we called her out on it. She wasn't willfully racist. She switched to the tiger version and never went back to the old version.

Classist. :-)

What's wrong with "too many cooks spoil the broth"?

You can't be classist against the oppressors.

Cash tips are *supposed* to be reported and taxed. The IRS says so.

But if you are (for example) a pizza delivery driver, the odds of getting caught not reporting cash tips are essentially non-existent.

Actually there *is* something in the Constitution that will interfere with Trump's idiocy.

It's the 14th amendment. If you are born in the US, you are a US citizen (there are a few exception involving things like diplomatic personnel).

Now, folks have argued that it doesn't apply to illegal immigrants. But so far Supreme Court decisions on that part of the 14th amendment don't support that interpretation.

Ann Coulter argues otherwise (you can google it), but she's mostly basing her argument on a case involving a native American. Which doesn't apply because native Americans were specifically mentioned in the amendment as being excluded.

So without some major court battles, and possibly an amendment to the Constitution, Trump won't be able to revoke citizenship of children born in the US.

Deporting their families will result in some major battles as well.
