Re: Bundy related gossip and discussion

cRyan spouts nonsense to another reporter. Bundy, son of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy, is running as a non-partisan candidate for governor, which has prompted some supporters of Republican Adam Laxalt to charge that all he can do is take enough votes from Laxalt to ensure victory for Democrat S...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Thanks, Somerset. But even if it is heavily filtered by the time it gets to the people, it won't be filtered at the top levels. I'm wondering more about how the Chinese authorities are taking it than how the Chinese people are taking it, since the people don't have a lot of clout anyway. (Face reall...

Re: USA v George Papadopoulos; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

I like how suddenly Australian intelligence is the big bad boogeyman. We're a small country. Our intelligence most likely consists of a dozen people having drinks at a pub. But hey, that's what broke this one (thanks Alexander Downer!) so maybe it's effective after all! (And yes, as per Papadopoulos...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Let's get something straight. Tariffs are not paid by the country that they are imposed on. They are a tax PAID BY US CONSUMERS, on those products. China isn't paying a dime of them, we are. I know tariffs don't work that way. But I don't think Trump knows they don't work that way, and sure as hell...

No, but in a weird way, it's Trump-consistent. Which isn't to say that it's at all logical or rational or intelligent; but after all this is the guy who thinks Mexico will pay for the wall, so why not think China will pay for health care? And if you consider that he also griped at NATO that nobody g...
