Re: Orange is the new President

This bad even for Trump. It would be one thing to be bland and non-committal but openly supportive of Putin is just bizarre. Unless of course you've been watching him be openly supportive of Putin literally this entire time, in which case it's just more of exactly what half the people here have bee...

From my LinkedIn job search.

You might want to rethink that name before you try to do anymore business in the states.

Re: Orange is the new President

So if I understand the defenses of Trump in this thread, it's that Trump's rants about witch hunts are not because he is worried about what Mueller's investigation might turn up, but is Trump's civic-minded attempt to avoid seeing taxpayer funds wasted on pointless investigations (especially when t...

Re: Orange is the new President

I know Trump likes to shoot off at the mouth but that would show an amazing lack of self preservation even by him. Especially someone in no way guaranteed the presidency or other legal cover.

It is quite likely that he thought he had deniability, that he could blow it off as "Just a joke." And right now your theory boils down to "The fact that he did something that looks incriminating just proves that he had no knowledge, because if he knew what was going on he wouldn't have done incrim...

We know that Trump's son and campaign manager met with Natalia Veselnitskaya, as well as a few other people, arranged via Trump friends with contacts in Russia, because she supposedly had dirt on Clinton. We knew that when this meeting was arranged, an associate of the Trump family wrote: This is o...

I know TDS is a thing on both sides of the aisle, but ... Can't quite tell if serious.
Because a better answer is...he was publicly conspiring with the Russians? That seems a lot more far fetched than he was trolling.

So what happens if we invite Russia to join NATO? Something bad, I assume? I don't know enough about the topic to identify what the likely bad thing would be. It was considered in the 1990s.

Re: Orange is the new President

I'm not sure why we all want use of military force to be an easy and quick policy option for everyone. It's certainly not a good thing when we do it. It had better be at least as quick and easy as it is for the people knocking on your door. Other views are simply naive. This is how WWI started. And...

Currently the Euro country armies are a complete mess. It's not even that they are underfunded they are completely unready for any kind of action. Without the US military umbrella they are extremely vulnerable. Whatever gets them off their asses and gets them to take their own protection seriously w...

Incredibles 2 is pretty fantastic. It's might be slightly more muddled than the first one as far as themes but it's very funny. I think it might have the best spit take ever put on film. Animation is fantastic, especially the facial nuances they manage to achieve. I also can't believe it's been 14 ...

While likely not be the best way to do it, if it gets Europe to actually consider their own defense without us it may turnout to be a good thing.
