If only President Trump were as supportive of our country as these folks are - and if only he believed in democracy.

Unfortunately, he believes in allowing foreign meddling in our elections, indeed embraces it.

Not that you can admit that, Kid.

And not that the US is going to lift a finger to support these protesters.

Not everything needs a Trump-related comment

He's in your head, man. 

Relax.

Mayor Pete insinuates that if any demonstrator in Hong Kong comes to harm it is Trump's fault.

Got link?

or you just heard this as you were downing your 14th pumpkin spice corndog?

Like Tulsi and Cory, I am vegetarian, so I wonder how they handle those state fair moments when you are offered some kind of meat on a stick.  If they're like me, they just take a few bites and figure it saves from the pride of total purity.

Outside of the twitter account you posted to very prominently (and imporobably) featuring a "Women for Trump" banner...

I posted a few days ago Trump's shameful response to the protests; clearly clueless about what was going on, calling the protests "riots," and effectively saying its China's business to do with them what they will.  That was real time, as things were happening.

You can argue to what degree an average US President can assert influence over democratic reform efforts in other countries, let alone a Chinese territory.  But Trump forfeited what help he could give to it.  And thus its absolutely legitimate to bring him into that convo.

The President of the United States very clearly has zero clue about what is going on in the most current and pressing geopolitical situation in the world.

This is scary stuff.

It has been asked often how Trump would respond to a disaster not of his own making.  Luckily nothing at a global scale has happened over the last 2 1/2 years to test the question.

Hopefully HK won't be that test.  Because there is no question that this "president" will fail it.

When a U.S. president or usurper of that office negotiates a rub-n-tug licensing contract with the government of a foreign power, he or she is to blame for the effects of our lessened influence on that country’s behavior by virtue of he or she crawling into that country’s pocket.

Rub-n-tug > Hong Kong

Building scams > Kashmir

Front a decades worth of fake wealth with laundered money > Ukraine

666 5th Ave > Yemen, etc.

It’s not like the title of the this forum is “Trump Administration”.

Embarrassed by the ass clown in office?

Don’t worry. Think of it as a good start.

You have over a year left to get around to really hating the prick and wanting him removed from any aspect of your life.

Every Democrat in the Senate Supports a Constitutional Amendment That Would Radically Curtail Freedom of Speech.

Funny.

Hey Red you forgot.to give the cite so we.can make sure you are not lying again. Or at least, make sure you are not once again confusing overturning Citizens United with radically curtailing freedom of speech.

If it becomes a basket case, it won't be able to assist anyone, in any way...inside or outside its borders.
The roads are already carparks, there isn't enough housing for everyone, people are starving-eating out of garbage bins, there are cities overrun with garbage in the streets, people living under tarps on the streets...etc.
Brining in millions more needy people gonna?

(a) It's already a basket case and the rest of the world knows it.

(b) I told you that you were full of shit on the "not enough homes" line, but you neither believed me nor bothered to look up the facts for yourself, which is par fo the course for you. So... "The short answer is that there are roughly 18,600,000 vacant homes in the United States as of February 2014. There are 600,000 Americans who experience homelessness on any given night, making the amount of vacant homes six times the amount of individuals without a place to sleep at night."

It has not changed significantly in the interening 5.5 years.

(c) We have the solutions to the trash on the streets and the homeless folks. We choose not to deal with it. We also have the solution to poverty and we choose not to deal with that, either.

(d) "The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) said 116,000 people were homeless on census night in 2016, representing 50 homeless people per 10,000."

In the US, it's 17 homeless people per 10,000. Shut the fuck up and deal with your own problems, asshole.

What happened to that commitment to try to increase the quality of your posts?!

We're talking about America.

And now we are talking about Australia.

Your country has a bigger homelessness problem than ours. What gives?

I've been out all day.
I'll investigate and give you an answer tomorrow...it's now 4.45pm.

My guess is...unemployment, mental illness, no chance of buying a home during lifetime because of illness/something else...cost of housing, cost of renting...wanting to live in the big cities rather than in rural areas...and useless politicians.

Al of my guess...plus;

Homelessness can be caused by poverty, unemployment or by a shortage of affordable housing, or it can be triggered by family breakdown, mental illness, sexual assault, addiction, financial difficulty, gambling or social isolation. Domestic violence is the single biggest cause of homelessness in Australia.

When you try and get big money out of politics, in Red's world, you're limiting the sacred freedom of oligarchs to buy elections.   Free speech = the rich getting to shout louder than the rest of us.  Here is the article, which he just lifted the headline from...

Yesterday around 2pm in Sydney CBD a man allegedly shouting "Allahu akbar" allegedly slit the throat of a reported 21 yr old sex worker girl in her own apartment, then stabbed a woman in the back in the street before running thru the city looking for more victims to hack to death with the large knife he was carrying.
Luckily, he seemed crazy in the head, doing irrational things instead of concentrating on slaughtering people.
Could've been because chasing after him were 4 men, 3 armed with a cafe chair and their bare hands, and one armed with an axe from his fire truck.

Yes, "Let's roll" [all praise to those American guys on that plane 9/11 who sought to fight back and save lives.]

After him they went, chased him thru the streets...finally managing to knock him off his feet, then hold him down with the chair, and put a milk crate over his head until the cops arrived.

UK 'proud' of ex footballer at centre of Sydney stabbing rampage

As news unfurled across Australia of the deadly stabbing in Sydney's CBD, the UK woke to find it was three British men who were being hailed heroes half a world away for their roles in the rampage.

Brothers Paul and Luke O'Shaughnessy and Lee Cuthbert, all from Manchester, about 330km north of London, saw the drama unfold and chased suspect Mert Ney down.

They pinned him to the ground and put a milk crate over his head and a chair over his torso to stop him from escaping until police arrived.

How about you tell us how to play it. Or are you just going to wait to see what he does, then slam him?
