Brian Lawrence <Brian_W_Lawrence@msn.com>: Oct 24 06:51AM +0100

Some comments from former Russian foreign minister Igor Ivanov, who
wrote an op-ed for the government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
 
"The Trump administration's experience confirms that only a strong
American president, backed by broad and sustained domestic support, is
able to steer relations between Washington and Moscow in a constructive
direction"
 
"Donald Trump turned out to be, in general, a weak president, with
neither his own program nor stable support in society, and the American
elite remained split all these three and a half years,"
 
"Moreover, the bulk of the American elite was not on Trump's side.
Against this background, relations with Russia turned into a bargaining
chip, became the subject of speculation, and not a serious balanced policy."
 
"Trump did not skimp on sharp and even shocking criticism of almost all
of America's allies, the European Union and even NATO,"
 
"But have relations between Russia and the United States changed for the
better over the past four years? Unfortunately, this question has to be
answered in the negative,"
 
"It doesn't really matter how Donald Trump feels about Vladimir Putin.
During his presidency, Russian-American relations have not improved in
any dimension. On the contrary, throughout the four years, relations
continued to deteriorate rapidly in all directions. And, unfortunately,
there is no end in sight to this worsening."
 
"Fierce political struggle within the United States will continue
regardless of the outcome of the elections," Ivanov predicted.
"Therefore, it is difficult to count on any fundamental shifts in
bilateral Russian-American relations. For such shifts, Biden, as far as
one can judge, has neither the political will nor the necessary
political capital."
 
Still, a President Biden would be more predictable, Ivanov said. "Along
with a tough position on many problems of world politics, one cannot
exclude a balanced position on some issues of strategic stability, and
above all with regard to arms control," he wrote of a possible Biden
presidency.

Interesting! Thanks for posting this. I intend to check it out. Maybe this will renew interest in Tevis as well and he'll get some long-overdue appreciation.

Doubtful I would have that since I didn't care who won in 2016. But Hillary didn't lose because of her e-mails anyway. She lost because she was Hillary.

I never said nepotism was fine for anyone. My point was that since people have grown increasingly blase about this stuff over the past 4-5 years, it is unlikely to drive voters away from a candidate they would otherwise vote for.
 
Nor did I insist Trump's taxes would determine the election. I said we'd find out how much Americans care about it soon enough. That's still true. But even so-called conservatives aren't sounding too confident now about Trump's reelection.
 
As Whisper said last week, these issues all amount to distractions in the end. Voters have to decide if they like where Trump is taking the country and want it to continue or not. Biden is not a dream candidate for many people. His biggest selling point is that he's not Trump, same as Trump was the "not Hillary."

Probably later than that. But here's the thing--this isn't 2016. And the even better thing--you know it! Hahaha!

Patriots vs. 49ers Sunday, Gillette Stadium, Foxboro. Jimmy G returns to his former team only to screw himself up, get beat up, beat down and make plenty of oversized ego mistakes as the 49er defense gets picked easily apart by a near lunatic in a easy run and pass game with quarterback cam newton as the 49er defense believes this is last weeks game. ya i know, we all know, the 49ers are a last season superbowl losing team but the nfc defending moronic champions with an ego the size of california. well come the end of the final seconds of the 4th quarter, jimmy g and the rest of the pathetic 49ers team are going to bow down and kiss the feet of the victorious NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

They had doubts about him last year, when he was recovering from the
ACL and the achilles. I hope he stays in the lineup for the rest of
the season. He's an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
 
Think they should sign him to a new contract?

the rioting was mostly left wing types....although Im not even sure what I would call groups like boogaloo boys.....
 
either way, not sure what in the world this has to do with why we should vote for Joe Biden. Im supposed to vote for one terrible guy just because his opponent sucks?

> https://www.redfin.com/city/1823/AL/Birmingham/housing-market
 
> It would be interesting to see the overall areas. That's a prime location in that article, but there are others in the area.
 
I don't know much about the birmingham market as a whole(just a few areas).....but overall market data doesn't neccessarily reflect housing costs and movement in the areas one might be ok living. Then again maybe in that area I would view an even smaller part of the area as safe and ok to live; I just dont know anything about it.
 
that said, I read the article/listing wrong at first like I said, and now it makes more sense. A 3/4 acre lot is pretty big, but then again a million dollars for a residential lot in the south is pricey even for that size.
 
Unless you have just unlimited money(and I certainly don't), I found living on that sort of lot is just not worth it. I've mentioned before that I used to have a bungalow in a part of mtn brook that was pretty pricey...similar to the one in the story by xy(the lot would now be worth a couple hundred thousand less but is maybe 0.40-.45 acres...much smaller), and in the end it just wasnt worth it. It's often a good investment, but the problem is the taxes were such that with even good appreciation which it was getting you lose it and then some to the property tax. Plus I didn't use the elementary school that was driving some of it. But living on relatively expensive(for the deep south...it's all relative) residental land isn't like eating a great steak or going on a fun vacation or whatever....there is no inherent fun in it for the money. So I got tired of paying all that money every month in the form of property tax and interest(I still had a mortgage) just to have a nice lot in the right part of the right neighborhood. So I moved three+ years ago to a smaller bungalow on a much smaller lot in a different part of town. My lot now is like 0.2 acres and lots/teardowns on this part of the street sell for less than half of what my old one would now. By alabama standards still a relatively expensive lot(and if I ever sell this one someone might tear it down), but much much cheaper than the other. And in the end, Im not any less happy day to day here living on a 'lesser' street.
 
OTOH, you can't deny the investment and longterm appreciation differences of buying a smaller less fancy house for X in an established pricey area vs spending the same X on a new mcmansion in a distant subdivision. The former is almost always going to be worth more ten years later, and often by a lot.....land appreciates, cabinets don't.
