Letís hope they get it all out there in an honest fashion. One would hope the GOP are looking just as closely at the FBI leaks to Giuliani right before the election and the communications between THOSE agents.

We were toying with putting in solar this summer, contingent on whether we decide to keep the house long term. This throws a nice big spanner in the works.

Beat the best team in the league Manchester City in the last game scoring 4 goals, tonight beaten by the worst team in the league and failed to score. That type of inconsistency must drive Liverpool supporters mad.

As Laoislad says, itís how they respond. Most of the big teams have lost games like this this season. Get back to winning and scoring and it will be forgotten quickly enough.

Some performance by Swansea.

Big time, they were excellent

Their defending as a team was excellent other than that? scored from their only chance which Liverpool defended poorly on and only had 28% possession of the ball. Coutinho badly missed there tonight he could have prized open that well organized Swansea defence who will be brought in to replace him?

The rose tinted glasses.. Has the 'parking the bus' teams not been Liverpool achilles heel for quite some time now?

To a much lesser extent this year than previous.

Problems with the parked bus again, big time. Way too predictable and slow.

Wait till you see them harass the f**k out of Spurs next week.

Also kind of funny as Arizona was actually part of Mexico, the old border moved north and only became a state in 1912...
I was thinking the same thing
no wonder flake and eMcCain are so sore on trump ,just worrying about re-election

Huh? Flake is showing some balls because he is not running for re-election. McCain has an extremely serious (almost always terminal) cancer fight on his hands and isn't up for relection until 2022, if he somehow lives that long. Not worrying about reelection allows politicians to act with a bit of integrity and call Trump and the GOP out on their bullshit and extremism.
Flake must be looking at a show on CNN so as for McCain he'll be keeping it in the family I'm sure

Just so we are clear, are you unhappy with Flake and McCain standing up to Trump on certain issues?
not at all just suspicious of their motives

Are you suspicious of the motives of those who choose to defend or remain silent on Trump?

Democrats will blame the Republicans

The Republicans will blame The Democrats

At least the lame stream media no longer has a lock on the desimination of information so maybe some people will be able to make up their own minds

How many more decades of whining are we going to get about the ďlame stream mediaĒ?

Iíve never heard liberals complaining about the complete conservative dominance of talk radio for decades. Fox never shut up about their all conquering ratings. Murdoch is one of, if not THE most dominant forces in global media.

Shuffling paedos around, from parish to parish, to avoid convictions = being complicit, in any right thinking person's interpretation.

No shit!

Thatís a jaw-dropping assertion from Tony!

Not strictly the same thing, but Jack Wilshire has had a good season after his loan last year.

The likes of Kyle Walker, Danny Welbeck and Ryan Bertrand did well after loans, but in general I think itís a fair point. Unless theyíre still in their teens, if a player who is good enough wonít be loaned out. Hopefully it will benefit Grujic though as he is still relatively young. At least theyíve put the condition regarding playing time in there, so his time wonít be wasted.

There might be a shutdown this weekend. The GOP is toxic
what does that mean to the ordinary man on the street ? I don't need much from the government. Dems choosing illegal residents over citizens

Tax season starts in a week or two. People need passports. People like to visit national parks. People need social security. The CDC is busy collecting data on a severe flu season. And so on and on. Just because you personally need nothing at the moment doesnít mean itís an irrelevance.

The Dems are right to draw a line in the sand (along with some Republicans) on this issue, which has broad public support (do you really think kids who have lived almost their entire lives on the States should be left for months wondering what the f**k is going to become of them, unable to plan their future?). They had a bipartisan deal last week which Trump agreed to sign until Miller and the rest got to him. He has been changing his mind on what he wants by the hour. McConnell promised a vote on DACA last time around, but due to Trump being all over the place, he is afraid to bring it to the floor. The CHIP thing is a pure stunt. It would easily pass with overwhelming bipartisan support as a stand alone bill, but McConnell wants to use it as leverage.

Iceman, I would be personally against abortion myself and agree pretty much with what youíve written.
 
Itís a difficult issue though. Where do you draw the line with respect to the health of the mother? Should a woman be forced to carry a rapistís child to term? I donít see how I or anyone else has the right to make that demand, regardless of the fact that the life of an unborn baby is on the line.

And itís an issue Ireland has not had to properly reckon with until now due to the relief valve provided by England. As horrific as I now find the idea of abortion, I was happy enough in my teen and early-20s relationships when one or two girlfriends told me Iíd never know if they got pregnant, because sheíd be off to England and back without my ever knowing about it. And to this day, Iíve no issue with the morning after pill, which I understand might not be the case for a devout catholic as yourself.
