It’s worth repeating that there’s multiple cruciate ligaments, and the reports only mention ‘damage’. Depending on the grade of the tear he could be back sooner rather than later so I’d hold off on comment or obituaries until we know more.

The TV networks and the democrats huh? Which networks and which democrats please and thank you.?

Wait, are you suggesting people prepared for an election in advance? When there was a different government? That's crazy talk man. You'd want to have your facts straight with that kind of spurious allegation.
most tv networks polarize people which does not help .
And prepare for an election? The ruskies played them like a fiddle

The Russians wanted to divide the country. It is entirely possible that the Trump win was the result of that division, rather than the goal of it.

The subsequent polarization of the country, and the backwards step in global influence, the lack of key appointees in key geo political areas leaving the US without representation is insane. The result is allowing both China and Russia to exert outsized influence. The abandonment of Africa is mind blowing.
the tv networks and the democrats are doing the Russians work for them now so , all this shit happened on last governments watch do they have anything to answer for ? Or was it all ok because they thought trump had no chance of winning.

I guess she had to fill time, 8 hours and all, but I suppose she could have whipped out Joyce's Ulysses and outshone Ted Cruz's epic Green Eggs and Ham.

Strictly speaking, and I could be wrong, but I believe that a filibuster is a procedure limited to the Senate, though what she was doing was clearly her own version of a filibuster since in the House a party leader may speak without time limits.
my mistake I should have said when she was talking shite for 8 hours

During her long filibuster speech Nancy pelosi was telling the country that one of her proudest days as a grandmother was the day her 6 year old grandson wished he was brown skinned and brown eyed like his guetamalan friend when he was making a wish on his birthday, Nancys liberalism is slipping into mental disorder I think and the retirement home might be the best place for  her ASAP ,can u imagine any person saying this and getting away with it ? When did being a white person become a bad thing?  She knows she's white right ? The politicians here have gone completely insane most average person on the street has ten times more cop on than them .

Compare that to how Cam got treated when he did the same

Saint Tom  ::)
tom has won some and played really well on Sunday so he gets a bit of a pass ,cam didn't play well in that Super Bowl and I remember him not diving on loose ball for fear of injury which a lot of people didn't like , must also be said Brady's attempts at running and catching were pathetic on Sunday

Fear of injury, Cam Newton, the guy who runs at linebackers like a RB and nearly always lowers the shoulder rather than baseball sides? Right.

Which makes his lack of effort on that play all the more unforgivable.
i was talking about that particular game and that particular play ,he was rattled in that Super Bowl and was seeing von miller before the ball was being snapped , cams line from that day 18-41 with 46 rushing yards ranks 40th best QB performance in Super Bowl history, tommy and Kurt have it to themselves at the top

Alex Smith is off to Washington, contracted to them for the next 5 seasons. First missing piece of the QB jigsaw in place.

Where will Cousins land? He's going to get a massive contract. I'm not sure I want him in Arizona to be honest, on that sort of Salary Cap hit. Who else is looking for QB? Cleveland might be in for him, they have space.

Broncos, Jags, Bills & Jets for starters I would say

Sorry, I should have phrased that better. Who else is looking for him , and has Cap Space?
cleveland

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/21/government-shutdown-trump-democrats-republicans-senate-vote

Donald Trump used Twitter to urge Senate Republicans to end the impasse by taking the “nuclear option” if the “stalemate continues”.

Such a move would allow Republicans to pass legislation without Democratic support, lowering the majority needed to pass a bill to just 51 votes. It is, however, not favoured by the GOP Senate leader, Mitch McConnell.

The president arguing that Democrats were placing the nation’s borders under threat by opposing a short-term budget fix.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump tweeted.

Quick guideAll you need to know about the US government shutdownShow

The remarks followed an agressive Trump campaign advert released on Saturday, which said Democrats opposing the president’s hardline immigration agenda were “complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants”.

Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, told NBC’s Meet the Press “that ad was produced by an outside group and not those of us in the White House”.

The ad concludes with a picture of the president giving two thumbs up and his voice saying: “I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message.”

The Vermont senator Bernie Sanders condemned the ad, telling CNN’s State of the Union is was “nonsense and outrageous”.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, is helping lead efforts to secure talks safeguards for Dreamers, young undocumented migrants brought to the US who gained protected status under the Obama administration that was rescinded by Trump.

News shows repeated Fox & Friends footage from 2013, when Republicans in Congress drove the last government shutdown, over healthcare reform.

“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top,” Trump said then. “I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader. And he’s got to get everybody in a room and he’s got to lead.”

The Senate needs to lead,” Graham said, “because no one else is and the White House staff is making things very difficult.”

Graham said White House proposals for spending on border security were “just not credible” and referred to a senior policy adviser to Trump and leading immigration hardliner when he said: “As long as Stephen Miller’s in charge of negotiating on immigration we’re going nowhere. He’s been an outlier for years.”
seafoid u will be happy to hear the government shut down is over

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

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
Trump said he would fix DC. Kelly overruled him
which is it schumer is saying trump is vetoing it
