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.

Personally, Iíve little invested in the Mueller probe. Just hope it is all done honestly.

Trump and his support have gone so far off the reservation at this point that you might have to agree with him about his gunning people down on Fifth Ave and not losing support. I mean, there are apparently FOUR porn stars in the mix now from his alleged activities while his wife was home breastfeeding! Where does this freak show end? Every week we are crossing what used to be career-ending lines! ;D

Does it concern you that the founder of Fusion GPS had dinner with the Russian Attorney both the night before and the night after the infamous Trump Tower meeting?

If I were a betting man I'd say that the Clinton campaign in conjunction with some rogue elements of the FBI set a honey trap for the Trump campaign. Hence the "insurance policy" that one FBI/DOJ referred to

ďConcernĒ??? Depends what comes out about it.

Iíve seen nothing in the news about ďdinnersĒ though.

Just a Fox News report saying they were in a court room together beforehand and in each otherís presence afterwards, whatever THAT means. They didnít supply any context.

Surely the GOP committee members grilled the GPS rep if there is anything to this??

As bad as Trump is he still beat the pants (suit) off Hillary....

Think about it for a moment....all the money she raised and spent, the lame stream media firmly in her corner, the Electoral College system absolutely benefiting Democrats....and she still couldn't beat him

Look, everyone! There goes Whitey "not defending Trump" again.


What has Trump done right since taking office Eamon, I asked that j70 feller but he is not answering my question, maybe you can, I doubt it but maybe you can.

So finally you post the f**king question, even if only to have a hollow dig. Well done stew, especially for a lad whoís defining characteristic is to post inflammatory or half-baked nonsense and then ignore anything that calls it into question and post it again, undeterred, the following week (a bit like a creationist).

So what has Trump done right...

The job and market trends from Obama have continued under him. Whether things ultimately improve in the long term remains to be seen.

He dropped the tax rate for corporations (even if most of them didnít pay it anyway).

There you go stew. Thatís two things. Which donít offset the rest of his agenda or his repugnant rhetoric and behaviour and childlike lies and dishonesty.

f**k you are an arrogant ballix!  :)

You are in fact giving Obama credit for the job market situation, not Trump, so a big nothing burger there!

The tax decrease according to you is hardly impacted by Trumps decision due to the (fact) most companies dont pay it anyway! Another nothing burger.

You are a hater an absolute hater, as am I when it comes to Clinton and the far left AND far right, the difference is I can give credit to Obama were it is due, you are so far gone you can give Trump credit for absolutely nothing he has done, this attitude may have a teensy weensie wee bit to do why you blinkered liberals lost an election you should have won in a canter! Dont ever change kids. )

I believe in giving credit where its due, not bullshit.

We posted the job and stock trend graphs here a couple of weeks back. Feel free to post them again and show us the departure from the long terms trends under Trump to date.

As for the corporate tax rate decrease, I'm in favour. There has been bipartisan support for a lower rate in recent years to make the US market more attractive, with the GOP obviously favouring a lower rate than the Dems. I don't have much of an issue with the rate they settled on. Nevertheless, it is a FACT that a lot of companies availed of loopholes and breaks to pay rates that were much lower than the standing rate. If you want to dispute that, knock yourself out.

No hatred here stew.
