Re: Your Daily WTF

Too many WTF's to count today, so... a dozen virtual donuts to whoever guesses the shiny object he comes up with in the morning to distract us. Firing Kelly? Rosenstein? Declaring war on Montenegro? What?

Uh oh. Now they're saying she offered sex for access. This is going to be bigger that The Real Housewives of Volgograd.

Re: Make Russia Great Again

I'm the outlier on Syria. I think the world is better off with Assad in power. He's a murderous tyrant but at least he's semi-non-sectarian. A rebel win there would just create more turmoil.

Re: Make Russia Great Again

I don't know but he sure wasn't happy when the Baltic countries aligned with the west. See the map. Kaliningrad is a non-contiguous part of Russia and it has a good seaport. But freight has to go through Russia-aligned Belarus and NATO- and EU-aligned Lithuania to get there. He'd sure like to get Li...

Re: Make Russia Great Again

And Carlson agrees with him, so I don't know how many people also do. I'd hope that if it came down to it, somebody would either talk some sense into Donald or intervene, but that's some pretty dangerous thinking. Or lack thereof.

Make Russia Great Again

Forget election meddling, forget spies in the NRA, forget "would/wouldn't," forget Syria. THIS is the statement Putin wanted to hear. (The second one. I couldn't cut the first one out.) https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1019375130093522944 "Why should we defend Montenegro?" Exce...

Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

Merged this because I didn't see where the results of one poll was a new topic. Maybe if the title had been something besides "Reuters/Ipsos poll". It says nothing about any new direction.

Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

I had to watch because I couldn't imagine Obama on a three-day bender saying anything as stupid as what Trump said. Nope. Not even close. He said what we would have wished Trump would say but nothing like what he did say.

Professor Fate wrote:That doesn't change the fact that if you want relations with Russia to improve, you don't try to show him up in front of the world press. It's just common sense.

Whole lot of less disgraceful ways of doing that.

A graphic for the Professor. Number of indictments per week and how long the investigations took. This one's going pretty quickly, really.

Re: Russia probe: House Intel Republicans End Investigation

We have a $2 billion trade deficit with Vietnam. Would you call that a problem? Would you call it a national security problem? Would you call them a "foe"? Fact is that imbalances in the flow of trade occur naturally because one country will have stuff the other country wants but they won'...

Donald seems to be on a different time/space continuum than the rest of us.
