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:

I may have missed something. Did women who were young girls at the time accuse Clinton of raping them at Epstein’s private parties?

Why the hell would Dump want his pedo rape partner to go away?
Same reason as Bill Clinton, he can no longer hook them up.

Do those noses look the same to you??

Curved bridge on left versus a straight bridge on right image?

No doubt the angle or the lighting, but they do look different.

Watch The Family on Netflix.
Highly recommend.

The parts about Maria Butina and Alexander Torshin are especially derp-worthy.

When it comes to this story, nothing surprises me.

Whilst the alleged suicide is ridiculously concerning, the biggest conspiracy is how this guy went from zero to Billionaire out of nowhere, refused to take clients earning less than $1, 000,000,000 per annum, was a pedophile who became buddies with the global elite and was basically given immunity to traffic underage children.

Good old Amerika. Land of the Free.

Beer was good. Netflix was meh. Ended up watching Colin Quinn’s Red State Blue State. Didn’t think it was as good as people wrote it to be.

Honestly. This COMPLETE BULLSHIT conspiracy about the Clinton Family and their host of 'murders' over the decades is complete and utter SHITE. Amazing that the deplorables listen and actually believe that garbage BS on FUX (Propaganda) News but we have plenty of white, gullible, overweight dip shits in the US, so go figure. And if you still support Trump, you're a bigot and a racist. No question. The swamp is alive & well sponsored by Trump Inc. Pay for Play.

There hasn't been a single one of these underage girls who has ever stated that Bill Clinton had sex with them. Not one.

And the MAGAts know it. They just love to wallow in their world of shite.

They can cover up things for 30 years, but couldnt manage to get an extra 80k votes in 3 states... /sarcasm.
