Abolish ICE[edit]

You say on your userpage you want to see ICE abolished. How do you propose to deal with illegal immigration? (talk) 20:17, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

My only restrictions on entering the country would be a criminal background check (to determine if they’ve committed any crime in their native country) and a health check (to determine if they have any illness or such.) If they have a criminal background, turn them away. If they are ill, contact a hospital in their native country to send them to until they are cured or treated, and then they can enter. This can be done by Border Patrol (which I do not want to get rid of, and would even support increasing.)

However, I don’t believe people who entered the country illegally should be entitled to most public services (such as welfare, healthcare, etc.) until they get a citizenship. The exceptions would be children, seniors, the disabled and people with chronic illnesses health issues.

As for deportation, I believe we should only deport childless illegal immigrants in adulthood who have committed a crime that had harmed someone (akin to Obama’s deportation policy.) But not victimless crimes such as substance use and gambling.

As for who does the deportations with ICE abolished? Just have it be done by police officers with warrants on hand. Additionally, tell the criminals that they would be deported one day prior to the deportation. If they have children, just convict the parent/guardian in a prison here and have another parent/guardian be with the children. If the convicted parent/guardian was single, or if both/all parents/guardians were deported, contact as many other family members as possible to request that they be the child’s guardian(s). If that doesn’t work, then bring them to shelters. Either way, allow visitation between the parent/guardian and child 2-3 times a week, unless the parent/guardian committed a violent crime.

The biggest reason I want to abolish ICE is because it’s just another reactionary waste of taxpayer money anyway, and there are numerous other government entities we can rely on for maintaining a border. - TheUmbilicalCordGuy — Unsigned, by: TheUmbilicalCordGuy / talk / contribs

British Monarchy Abolition[edit]

Yay or nay? RoninMacbeth (talk) 04:02, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Sure, why not. Monarchies are outdated systems anyway, and the most prominent reason people even have for preserving them is nostalgia. - user:TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk)

Thank you for the information. --TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 09:37, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Adding categories[edit]

It's a lot faster and easier to add multiple categories to an article if you use HotCat. You don't have to use it if you don't want to, of course, but I just personally find it more convenient. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 03:55, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! --TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 08:45, 5 January 2019 (UTC)


When citing sources, please do more than just giving a link. Please include some details the way you would in an essay or research paper. Here is an example.

  • <ref>[ Sanders to host a 'Medicare for all' town hall]. The Hill. January 11, 2018.</ref>

The result is both cleaner and more informative. Another benefit is that you could reuse a source multiple times in the same article. To do that, give it a name.

  • <ref name="NPR-M4A">[ Here's What's In Bernie Sanders' 'Medicare For All' Bill]. NPR. September 14, 2017. Accessed February 2, 2019. </ref>

Go here to see the results. Nerd (talk) 03:22, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

I'll be sure to do that from now on. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 03:45, 8 February 2019 (UTC)


Please don't perma-block IPs. IPs are not permanent, so at some point, the permanent block might impact someone innocent. This is especially true for spambots, which cycle through IPs very rapidly. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 13:58, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Sorry. I didn't know that spambots could cycle through IPs. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 00:07, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

If you start a draft on ICE, I'll contribute to it. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 03:08, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll start an ICE draft when I bring the Ilhan Omar draft into the mainspace (just need to add a bit more to her views). TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 03:16, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
I started the draft. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 06:58, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
I moved the draft so the article title would have the full name of the agency. One of us can add redirects after we publish it to mainspace. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 16:41, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Alright. I'll start adding more edits to the draft. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 18:07, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Are you sure the abuses by ICE constitute "crimes against humanity"? Nerd (talk) 19:46, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Taking into account the inhumane living conditions, the mass sexual assault, the family separation policy and the caging of children, I would say the abuses are bad enough to be considered "crimes against humanity". TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 20:01, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Yo, is ICE still on your to-do list? Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 23:26, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Technically yes, but anything started is put in "Pages I have made major contributions to". TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 23:36, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

I decided that the ICE draft was good enough for mainspace, so I went ahead and moved it on over. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 21:37, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Awesome, thanks for helping me with the article over the past two months. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 22:50, 22 May 2019 (UTC)


Who the hell are you on the Discord server? Just curious. Oxyaena Harass 03:41, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

I'm Sir Dylan#4744. I made my Discord account a long time ago. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 03:50, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Clown World[edit]

Dang man! Great work. I started putting stuff together to work on this article and you just knocked out. Geoff The Goldfish (talk) 17:37, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, but @EK, @D, and @LeftyGreenMario all deserve more credit for their contributions. I only did a bit of reformatting. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 23:17, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
ye EK (talk) 10:10, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
It was mostly EK. — Dysk (contribs) 19:34, 30 April 2019 (UTC)


User "Mannyboy2015" was already banned on Wikipedia for his same bigotry and fabrication against Hindus.[1] On RationalWiki he is on same mission so I would request a ban on him for here too since he is up for no good but for promoting his personal bigotry. 2401:4900:40B8:9637:0:4B:8694:FE01 (talk) 06:45, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

About the Strongman document.[edit]

I don't intend to recreate the 'Strongman' document. but I don't think dictators and Strongmen are very synonymous.

Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu or Geert Wilders are called "Stronmen" and are extremely right-wing, but they are a bit different from the dictator's concept.--BluePink (talk) 08:09, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Board of trustees nomination[edit]

You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline here; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. Bongolian (talk) 05:06, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the nomination, but I'm technically ineligible to be on the board. I don't meet the requirement of having been registered for a year prior to the end of nominations. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 05:31, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Accurate though I think it is, and public figures though they may be[edit]

Please be cautious in using the wiki's voice to accuse people of specific crimes(as in the clog post) that they have not been convicted of. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:45, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

2019 Mod Election[edit]

You've been nominated in the upcoming moderator elections. See the nomination at RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations. --RWRW (talk) 11:12, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

No thanks, I don't want to be a mod. I'm planning something big in my personal life next year and I want to focus on that. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 09:53, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

I've edited your user page[edit]

The Atatürk userbox has been deleted. I have edited yuur user page to remove it. I hope you don't mind too much Spud (talk) 13:37, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
