So I understand that it's perfectly ok for a 52 year old journalist to go into a changing cubicle with Donald Trump because he offered her lingerie, undress to try the lingerie and not cry for help as soon as he grabs her by the p... and 20 years later tell the world that he violated her?

Re: President Trump

Context doesn't support Hurtzi's bias. That's what happens when you rely on the Washington Examiner for your news. I googled that phrase and only got hits from right wing websites. So I watched Anderson Cooper late last night and saw how the phrase was taken out of context. Of course. But, if you t...

ETA: Although I have made weight targets, I do not weigh myself obsessively everyday. Once your feel your pants are looser, then weigh yourself...

I firmly believe that the only reason that Trump called off the attack on Iran was that someone convinced him that it could be used against him in his re-election campaign. I also firmly believe that the Pentagon informed him early in the process about the potential casualties and he pooh-poohed the...

No, he's winning whining and winning whining and winning whining, because he's such a great winner whiner. Of course, he did warn us that he was going to win whine so much that he'd get tired of winning whining. He needs to take a break from winning whining, is what it is. :mrgreen: FIFY.

Yeah, getting that mortgage off your back is a HUGE plus. We paid ours off in fifteen years, celebrated, and started using that money for our future. When we bought our house in Dec 1980, our mortgage was 14% :shock: . We refinanced a few years later for 11%, but paying those high interest rates wa...

It's real easy to be judgemental when it comes to weight. Since you have absolutely no clue as to what the other person's health and challenges are, I suggest you keep your opinions to yourself.
