Re: Trump's 7th Foreign Trip - NATO, UK, Putin - July 2018

I recall reading that Obama didn't say anything about Russia helping Trump before the election because he (a) expected Clinton to win anyway, and (b) didn't want the ensuing RWNJ bullshit thrown at him. I don't know how Mitch could have blocked a public statement from him, if he had wanted to make ...

Re: UK - United Kingdom - England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland

Thank you, and I'm sorry for my gross oversimplification of history. I knew it was a bit more complicated than I said, but I was using a little poetic license. I didn't know that I was more wrong than right about the details. This is how we learn. But Trump's Wall is still a pretty stupid idea. And...

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

He is setting up an argument for why he's going to get in bed with Putin. He'll argue that Merkle did it and that nobody has a right to raise eyebrows about his relationship with Putin. It's the same old constant misrepresentation and false equivalency and stomping all over the truth. He's just wea...

And the net effect is, still and always, that the Dems roll over. Republicans cheat, steal and lie, but we can’t do that because it’s wrong, so they win. A-fucking-gain. Aren’t you tired of this yet?

Frankly, I've been wondering if Trump was going to try that same tack, not that he can do this on his own.
Hard to do, but even harder to do when you've pissed away the treasury on a stupid tax cut.

Putin is in the clear. The US isn't going to do anything, and the US is going to fuck over NATO so that NATO can't really do anything.

pretty screwy statistical analysis..

#11 Rockford IL lost 18,789 out of 349,431
#10 NYC metro lost 21,503 out of 19,566,480

I'm thinking ranking by percentage rather than absolute number might be more revealing.
