It doesn't, but we also don't have very American leadership at the moment.

Are you sure it isn't a bit about the breakdown of the American Family? or video games?

If he makes bail, I predict he will be whisked off to Israel or Saudi Arabia where he'd be safe as houses.

Then again he's friends with Billary, so he's equally likely to end up suicided.


EB response?

Told you Trump would win. You rolled on the floor with laughter.

Told you Russiagate was a pack of lies. You called me a Russian troll.

Can you spell Arkancided??

The Clinton Witness Removal Service back in action methinks.

Shucks, they sure do know a lot of people who ended up committing suicide, huh!

Good old Amerikkka.

Twitter censorship in full force today, manipulating trends away from #clintonbodycount, which was trending till it vanished..... and towards #trumpbodycount because....of course, Russia.

Clearly nothing to see.

Fortunately for Jeff, the prison cameras malfunctioned just as he was killed himself.

I actually laughed today when I saw the news in the morning. The kind of thing you expect to read about Mother-Russia and whatnot. Great going!

Did many expect any different outcome though?

Gorkie, I heard some Russian oligarchs and Putin himself were pretty tight with the dude as well and it is very much in their style the way he departed!

I'd agree that foreign policy of both parties is essentially the same but not domestic policy. I wouldn't expect X to know the difference from his cube in the troll farm in St Petersburg.
They aren't the same. The Dems, and I am tired of it, are simply not willing to dump deals or not finish what had been started by the GOP. If they do not stand up this time then they've all but declared themselves enablers.

Not bad of a read, actually. More like wishful thinking though and I am pretty sure you will be disappointed once again.

I think the Dems really have no idea how to deal with the issue of China, for example. So they are letting it slide and see if they can pick up the scraps after Trump is done with it. Meaning they hope he will fail miserably, which is not that unlikely, and they will blame him for the ridiculous tactics (fairly so) and promise “to start fresh” upon their victory.

Or maybe they just support it. Maybe not fully, but to some extent. Didn’t Warren talk about how it is pretty great and tariffs are the answer?

Or maybe they simply can’t swing one way or the other because they fear to loose votes? Say yes to free trade and loose those who oppose it, perhaps Michigan, Pensilvania, etc? One of the main campaign promises Trump was running on was the transatlantic trade agreement or, to be precise, getting rid of it. Democrats saw the support he received from that and they are keeping tabs. Maybe it is not that bad of a strategy to wait out, let people feel the pain when it comes (and it will) and then blast Trump for his policy, etc.

I don’t know. I’ve had a couple of beers and will go back to having a couple more and hopefully find something decent to watch on Netflix, lol.

Edit: Didn’t take long to find. I was a bit off about what Warren said, but nonetheless:
