Re: Jamal Khashoggi Murder and Cover Up

Germany halted arms sales but Donald doesn't want to do that, supposedly because it would cost jobs. Except one or two contracts isn't that many jobs. Big dollars but not a lot of jobs.

Re: The Honduran Caravan

Bick, you seem to have forgotten Donald's Executive Order that restricted immigration to only doctors and wealthy real estate investors. And Norwegians.

Re: The Honduran Caravan

I check the "Let 'em apply as the law requires" box. But I also check the "Stop referring to them as 'illegals'" and the "Stop calling it a 'Demcrat' plot unless you're referring to Truman" boxes. The world has been surviving the treaty for that long. Trump's conduct on...

They're still 1,000 miles south of the hurricane.

Whole lot of people in Florida who understand the Venezuelan situation a lot better than Donald does. I imagine claims like that would fall with an audible thud in half of the state.

Re: Pool anyone?

Don't look now, but with 90% of the precincts reporting, Bigbear and Southocfootball are tied at 20 for the lead.

Three games missing, still.

Re: Jamal Khashoggi Murder and Cover Up

Ha! Silly us! Turns out Khashoggi thought he was Bruce Lee and picked a fight with 18 guys. And a bone saw. Just a little bar fight. Move along.

Re: Jamal Khashoggi Murder and Cover Up

A good first step might be to take a look at our definitions of "pariah state" and "state sponsor of terrorism". We seem to have those backwards these days.
