No.In all seriousness this thread shows the absolute hypocrisy running through many aspects of this board.I use my formidable wit to lightheartedly link the news of celebrity deaths to aspects of their lives.This is not mocking the death itself.

However it now transpires that joking about death (in a way which is,unlike me, mocking the death) or even glorifying in the death is totally acceptable according to your perception of the deceased (e g Margaret Thatcher),or if you happen to know the deceased personally (🙄).
Formidable twit

Trump was elected on 4/5  policy issues he said he would take care of
The southern border with Mexico building the wall
Do something about isis
Remove usa from perceived bad trade /climate  agreements
Quit the pc bs in politics call it as u see it
Bring back jobs to the USA
It helped Clinton was his opponent but these are the issues he was elected on and it may seem simplistic but ithey are the reasons and the dems had opposite opinion on every one of them and he has delivered on some of them already so he will not be defeated very easily.
He hasn't delivered on jobs.
He gave huge tax cuts to the rich.
And he sacked Comey.

Loser
nobody gives a damn about comey, unemployment is at 4%, there has been no tax cuts as of today .im on the ground here not reading the gaurdian

No Comey sacking no Mueller.

Mixed messages here. Lambasted for light hearted humour drawing on an important part of a celebrity's life,but it is ok to glorify the deaths of the likes of Margaret Thatcher,or make a joke about a person if they were known to you? Does not make sense to me.
Margaret Thatcher broke the lives of many people and laid dynamite under the UK economy.

Don't see much of Trump effect there. Simply the same trend since 2010. Not that I would hold it against him if it levels off - you can only go so low.

The tax cuts will be passed next week, barring some last minute hitch.

Mueller gives a damn about Comey. And Trump definitely gives a damn about Mueller.

As for political correctness, if you think bald-faced lying and endless childish tantrums and coarse insults is a good thing, well each to their own I guess. I don't see how he is doing the country any favours, either internally or externally on that count. Or his party for that matter.

Border wall... we'll see.
2 things about that chart
It doesn't include people who have given up looking for work. The real level is more like 13%. Labour participation fell by 8 percentage points in 2008 and never recovered.

Under business as usual if unemployment is low pay rises are high and people are happy. But payrises are nor happening especially for poor people in red states. . So the result is political rage. Trump tapped into that but did nothing to address the drivers of it.

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, has formally declared that Palestinians will no longer accept the US as a mediator in the Middle East peace process following Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 

In his strongest public statement since Trump’s announcement last week, Abbas said Palestinians would go to the United Nations security council to seek full membership of the UN while asking the world body to take control of the peace process as Washington was no longer “fit” for the task.

The meeting took place a day after the US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, suggested that the linked – and equally contentious – move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem might not actually take place during Trump’s current term in office.

Abbas was speaking at a hastily convened meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, where members were called upon to recognise a Palestinian state, amid strong condemnations of both the US and Israel.

“Jerusalem is and will forever be the capital of the Palestinian state,” Abbas told delegates. “We do not accept any role of the United States in the political process from now on, because it is completely biased towards Israel.”

The Palestinian president’s comments were echoed later in the summit’s official closing statement, which declared “East Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine” and invited “all countries to recognise the state of Palestine and East Jerusalem as its occupied capital”. 

The statement said the OIC summit viewed Trump’s move “as an announcement of the US administration’s withdrawal from its role as sponsor of peace” in the Middle East, describing it as legally “null and void” and “a deliberate undermining of all peace efforts” that would give impetus to “extremism and terrorism”.

The summit was attended by King Abdullah of Jordan, the Lebanese president, Michel Aoun, the emirs of Qatar and Kuwait, and the Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, who called on all Muslim nations to unite to defend the rights of Palestinians.

The Dems dumped conyers and the other guy over harassment. It will be a huge theme in 2020. Trump.won a huge vote from women over 45 in 2016 but he is tolerant of chauvinism on top.of being an asshole.

Just going to sit back and let the GOP spin-doctors go to work i.e Whitey and Fox Commander. This is the second stage in the uprising against Trump. After only a year, Trump and his reforms, promises, sexual misconduct and poor use of words, has led his approval ratings to sink to a new low. Multiply this by 4 and I reckon Hillary will be begged back to stand again. Democrat win in 2020 is as close to a certainty as you can get....the only bigger certainty is Faugheen winning the Champion Hurdle in 2018.

I deal in facts not spin

Romney beat Obama by 20 points in Alabama in 212

Roy Moore was on the same ballot in a state wide contest and won his respective race by 2 points against a Democrat

So back of the napkin math (and correct me if I'm wrong) but about 1/3 of the Republicans voters who voted for Romney did NOT vote for Roy Moore in his race in 2012. He is a very unpopular figure in Alabama, but popular enough with the base to win the primary....simple as

If Luther Strange had been there n the ballot he'd have beaten the Democrat by 15-20 points
The GOP had a normal person in charge in 2012
Trump is a liability.

A great day for gays, bisexuals and lesbians. Look at what tr**p was saying 5 days ago

http://Https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/09/donald-trump-backs-roy-moore-florida-alleged-victim

Speaking before green and red signs saying “Merry Christmas, Make America Great Again”, Trump not only gave an ardent endorsement of Moore but cast doubt on the claims of one of the women who has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her as a teenager.

Trump joined the Moore campaign in attacking the credibility of one accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, who said Friday she added an inscription to a high school yearbook signed by the Alabama Republican. “Did you see what happened today? You know, the yearbook? Did you see that? There was a little mistake made,” said Trump. “She started writing things in the yearbook.” He went on to attack the credibility of her lawyer, Gloria Allred. “Any time you see her you know something’s gone wrong.”

Nelson had used the yearbook as evidence to back her claims that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old waitress, in 1977.

Trump also criticised Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, as a “liberal democrat” and a “total puppet” before closing his pitch by saying “We want jobs, jobs, jobs, so get out and vote for Roy Moore.”

The president has initially been cautious in his embrace of the controversial candidate, who was twice removed from office as Alabama’s chief justice for defying federal courts and has frequently made remarks considered homophobic. Most recently, Moore blamed the allegations against him on a conspiracy that includes “lesbians, gays, bisexuals and socialists”.


However, Trump has supported Moore on Twitter in recent days. He said Friday morning “LAST thing the Make America Great Again Agenda needs is a Liberal Democrat in Senate where we have so little margin for victory already. The Pelosi/Schumer Puppet Jones would vote against us 100% of the time. He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military. VOTE ROY MOORE!

is it safe to assume that a lot of Americans are now realizing that maybe Hillary wasn’t so bad after all????
Eh no!

A lot of Americans still realise what an obnoxious, hateful, lying sack of crap she really is!

Hope that helps.
Hillary is as relevant as Armagh''s Sam at this stage.
Moore losing is bad news for the Trump Reich.

This is a monumental kick in the nuts to Trump.
And the Senate majority is now razor thin.
