  1. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    It's staggering that I feel the need to ask this question about the President Of The United States.
  2. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Questions, questions. The White House is sticking to Trump's assertion that the women who have accused him of sexual assault are lying: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/27/16561704/white-house-trump-sexual-harassment-liars Given that Trump has bragged about sexually assaulting women: Ibid Is it the case that all the women, and Trump, are lying i.e. Trump does not sexually assault women, or is it the case that all the women, and Trump, are telling the truth, and Trump does indeed sexually assault women?

    Indeed, I can't.

    Ah, the old ones. They're always the best.

    Sorry PD, the only thing Obama brought out while in the White House was, racism. Fixed your typo.

    50% of people on this planet are female. When he shows them some respect I may show some for him:

    Neither do I. I see him as stupid because, yannow, he's stupid. Trump today on Chinese president Xi Jinping: The stupid. It burns!

    Definition: Crass. Adjective. Very stupid and showing no sympathy or understanding. https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/crass Synonyms: stupid, insensitive, blundering, dense, thick, vacuous, mindless, witless, doltish, oafish, boorish, asinine, bovine, coarse, gross informal pig-ignorant https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/thesaurus/crass Me too. We really need a very stupid, mindless, witless, pig-ignorant dolt with his finger on the nuclear trigger. What could possibly go wrong?

    So if it came to nuclear war you'd be OK with it. Oh, my. Oh. My.

    Source: http://www.defenseone.com/threats/2017/10/exclusive-us-preparing-put-nuclear-bombers-back-24-hour-alert/141957/ I guess I should feel reassured that Air Force C-o-F Goldfein is ensuring that we're prepared going forward. I just wish I had a clue what it means. More worryingly, Goldfein continued: Shorter Goldfein: "We have to ensure we nuke the right people." Further Goldfein: Unlike Goldfein, I'm not an Air Force Chief of Staff, but conventional conflict with a nuclear element kinda looks like nuclear war to me but WTFDIK.

    I've never said they did. I've never blamed the victims. I've always blamed the bankers, insurance companies, mortgage lenders and credit ratings agencies. Who borrowed the money is neither here nor there. What matters is who lent it and why. The film Inside Job explains how tens of millions of people lost their savings, their jobs and their homes. It's a tale of greed, corruption and fraud. A tale of private jets and private elevators. A tale of strippers, hookers and drugs. A tale of the "systemic corruption of the US by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption." A tale of bankers, insurance companies, mortgage lenders and credit ratings agencies in other words. You can watch it here: http://documentarylovers.com/film/inside-job/ Also, too, The Big Short is terrific: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_big_short/ From memory, and I've watched both films twice, neither even mentions house flippers as a cause of the crisis.

    With respect, I simply don't understand this. No-one has ever said the crash was caused by poor, sub-prime lenders. There is no such thing as a poor, sub-prime lender. And, if you mean sub-prime borrowers, it still makes no sense. The crash was caused by bankers lending money to folks who had little or no prospect of paying the money back. That's called a sub-prime loan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subprime_lending No-one has ever blamed the poor. Everyone, rightly, has blamed the banks. Oh, my. My head is about to explode. Stop blaming the victims. Please.

    Candace Owens (for it is she) is nuts. She goes to considerable length to say there's no racism in the US. Absolutely none. Nowhere. A white girl checked her into the gym. Hooray! A Spanish girl made her coffee. Hooray! If you read the press you'd think there exists deep-rooted, institutional racism in the US. There isn't! She then says: "the education system and the prison system. These are two institutions that actually do systematically oppress and disadvantage African-Americans and keep us on the cycle of crime and poverty." and laments that this isn't reported by the media, presumably because it would be evidence of deep-rooted, institutional racism in the US. And this is simply beyond belief from a POC: "The media is going to keep encouraging us to act like absolute animals." The stupid. It burns.
