Turns out the Russians weren’t just installing a puppet in the White House. They also put millions and millions of dollars into the GOP senate and GOP congressional committees, as well as individual candidates’ campaigns. This is another sterling example of why the democrat is the better choice for the American people in every election in the country this cycle. It will make for excellent campaign adds.

GOP = Guilty & gone, God willing

From Knick's posted link:

Quote
Among Democrats, 39 percent named Obama, and 3 percent picked Trump.

I reaaallllly have to wonder about that 3 percent.  Don't think I've EVER met a Democrat who told me "Donald Trump is the man I most admire in the world."  I am genuinely curious what their reasons are.  I mean, besides "I love to fuck with pollsters heads."

And how did you determine the other 97% of respondents were not patriots?   Is our national security riding on how people answer a poll on who they admire?  Does selection of persons other than Trump suggest allegiance to a foreign power?  Just curious how you came up with that.

Patriot - in that they admire the current man in highest office, regardless of party.

I had an admiration for Obama long before he became President.  And may have answered OBAMA if given this question while he was in office.

Allegations Chinese registered ships are trading oil to North Korean vessels at sea

US reconnaissance photographs have caught Chinese ships selling oil to North Korean vessels some 30 times, a South Korean news service claims.

The Chosunilbo cites South Korean government sources as revealing the photos captured numerous vessels engaging in the activity in the West Sea between China and South Korea.


#####

Oh dear.

When will anyone actually do something about it?
That is the question.

Oh, that is a question, to be sure, bambu, but hardly the first question.

#1 on the hit parade is "What could we do about it?"

#2 is "Of those things, what should we do and what should we not do?"

Until those questions are answered by each and every potential respondent, the "who" question cannot even be initiated effectively.

I am pretty sure that there are two potential "who" answers and only one of those has the slightest chance of their answer being "we will." And once we grant that the US could contheivably respond and Russia could, but won't, we're still stuck at question #2.

Nor do I think you have a meaningful or worthwhile answer.

But I am sure you will offer us your wisdom on it, regardless. A model of Dunning-Kruger right here in our very own forum! (That we should be blessed with so many is amazing.)

Could go to the UN and demand sanctions against China.

Kid We could probaby have an interesting discussion about what is a patriot, but I'm pretty sure the admiration of a leader has little to do with one's patriotism.

I will not venture into Godwin's land to make the point.

You don't consider the 3% to be patriots?

Maybe they just like his hotels.

Now the 'quote' function doesn't work for me.

Quote
facilatatorn;
And it sounds like Australian women are waking up to the inferior quality of their men. Sad.
Quote

More of 'their men' seem to be waving the rainbow flag every day, especially in the 'elite suburbs'...which are rainbow central.

Also, in the survey in a magazine several years ago...the no 1 response from women looking for love was;
'Tall, dark, and handsome, with a large.........income.'

From men; basically...a less educated than they, well-endowed blonde.

To attract the handsome, well-educated, rich guys in the elite suburbs,...basically it seems you have to look like a model and be 'all things to all people'.
Well-groomed, well-mannered, able to speak "the Queen's English", and charming...
A university degree is not even on the list, as far as I can judge.

Not every man in the 'elite suburbs' is handsome, well-educated and rich....so if the women with degrees are looking to date/marry up then they could struggle to find what/who they're looking for.
