TBH, the Brits should just revive the glory days of soccer hooliganism to deal with their internal issues.

Some quotes:
 
I want to dwell for a moment on how Trump has performed in office and how that is going over with the national security establishment. Trump started out by going to the CIA and disrespecting their dead. He then ignored the Justice Department's warnings that his National Security Advisor was compromised by the Russians. He tried to compromise the integrity of the FBI director and then fired him. He tried to compromise the integrity of the head of the National Security Agency and his Director of National Intelligence. He infuriated the Israelis by giving sensitive information to the Russians in the Oval Office. He refused to commit to coming to our NATO allies' defense if they are attacked. Most recently, he put our air base in Qatar at risk by siding against them in their dispute with other Arab nations. [...] I could talk about his horrible security as he continues to use an insecure Android phone and conducts sensitive foreign policy in public areas of Mar-A-Lago. Without any real effort to be thorough here, I just want to convey how unsatisfactory he's been as president from the point of view of anyone who works on national security, defense or intelligence matters. Even if he hadn't compared these folks to Nazis, they'd be scared and angry.
 
[...]
 
If we can set aside the merits just for a moment, the Trump administration is simply outgunned. To predict the future, why not look at the immediate past. So far, all Trump's efforts to outflank the Intelligence Community have resulted in nothing but a deterioration of his position and a budding case for impeachment based on his conduct of the war.
 
[...]
 
But we should consider a few more things. Almost no members of Congress endorsed Trump in the primaries. The Speaker of the House effectively disowned Trump after the Access Hollywood tape came out in October. They tolerate him much more than they support him. And they tolerate him because they want things from him. They already got a Supreme Court Justice. They want tax cuts, too. They want to finish off the Affordable Care Act. Individual members have their own to-do lists. The problem here is that Trump is failing to deliver in rather spectacular fashion. Everything is piling up in Congress. There's no budget, no appropriations, no tax reform plan, no infrastructure plan, no workable health care plan, and a looming debt ceiling fiasco. Congressional Republicans are publicly pessimistic about their chances of achieving anything this year and are vocal about the prospect of a looming fiscal and budgetary disaster in September. Things aren't going to get better. They will assuredly get worse as looming catastrophes became actual real-time debacles. And that's the context in which the #TrumpRussia investigation will unfold.
 
In truth, Republicans have very little use for Trump at this point. He's given them everything he's likely to give them.

After LBJ and 8 years of Obama only one thing matters - Trump is not a
socialist.
 
Nothing in the Constitution gave LBJ and BHO the right to use taxpayer
funds to support those who are able but make no effort to support
themselves. Equal opportunity and redistribution are not synonyms.
 
It takes a hard-nosed guy like Trump to derail the traitorous acts of
the aforementioned.

Bingo. Plus I'm a very busy man this time of year. Don't feel like poking the bear only to have to go jump through more hoops when I should be working.

None of this shows you to be better at handling situations directly. It just shows you to be an asshole. Good work!

No it just shows I can and will follow up on problems.
 
And it shows you as a coward or a lazy bum or not intelligent enough
to know what to do when explained to you and who is afraid to solve
the problem one way or the other.
 
Thank you for playing, boy.

I can't understand how you can get so wound up over how a man you don't even know chooses to approach his paperwork problem with the dealer.
 
If I give him advice and he doesn't take it I shrug. Why do you have to turn into a nasty name-caller?

Can't find anything.
 
You just want to bob and weave and not admit that you are so in the tank for Trump you can't acknowledge that he could be wrong about anything.

I think the more likely second order effect is driving Qatar deeper into Iran's arms, giving Iran its first strong ally on that side of the Gulf, and ultimately the US losing its air base there... it might even become an Iranian air base.
 
As a first step I'm sure Iran would be more than happy to provide fraternal support to its besieged ally. A flashy food convoy route across the Gulf, maybe.
 
You may be right that Qatar is playing both sides. Now they are being forced to choose, and one of the sides is making it clear they aren't welcome there.

yep. We got free tickets to his comedy tour directly after his show ended. We ended up walking out, it was so un-funny. But I loved the show...and I loved Curb Your Enthusiasm. Same writers.

Clearly I'm not very amenable to change. But every other member of my
family (except my wife) agrees with you.

Unbutton, out, flip, pull, place in slot. Do you get a receipt? I
check every one against the bill when it arrives (including previous
months my wife had been holding). My checkbooks are ALWAYS balanced to
the penny. I'm a world class clerk.
 
>Btw supposedly Apple Pay is more secure than using the actual credit card.
 
That gets my attention although I have never had a problem (SO FAR).
 
I still enjoy learning - but it's more difficult now.
