i have a lot of issues with the tax bill, but lets be very clear about this.

The US is a capitalist society. This tax bill further explicitly states this. The tax bill rewards and favors capital and not labor. No one has ever set out the US as a Labor economy. Now you may argue the ethics, the merits and pitfalls to a society when it gets this close to a pure capitalist system, but they are going balls out here

is it safe to assume that a lot of Americans are now realizing that maybe Hillary wasn’t so bad after all????

Are you kidding

First of all can you imagine Bill as “first husband” living in the White House with all the sexual harrassment claims coming out

Secondly.....its looking very much like the FBI “investigation”of Hillary was seriously compromised....the investigator who essentially “exonerated” her found to be texting anti Trump messages during the investigation. 

Senior DOJ official who was recently stood down for secretly meeting with Fusion GPS.....his wife actually worked for Fusion GPS at the time of the infamous fake dossier


1. Whitey is right first man bill would have had to face the music
2. The investigator said the idea of a trump presidency was terrifying. I'd say that was accurate and prescient.
3. That dossier keeps getting attention, why the GOP and Donald Spurs keep calling more attention to Fusion GPS is beyond me. Oh look a bird....

Jones has it.

I wouldn't read too much into it. Again, a little bit of egg on the face of the president in particular, but the GOP in general.

Alabama is the most Republican state in the country, the most interesting thing to me has been the feedback from the Rep Superpacs. Blaming Bannon and Trump. Already pointing towards quality of candidate selection. Going to be an interesting few months.

Senate in play for 2018? 51-49 GOP right now.

Funny too see the backlash in the north east against the tax reform. How can you manage to screwup and piss off wall street by decreasing tax on the rich? That takes a certain type of special.

Fox saying Trump's Twitter feed encouraged African American voters to come out and vote by pissing them off. Have a laugh and take a look at USA today's editorial.

"Trump not fit to shine the shoes of GW Bush" In effectively calling Gillebrand a whore he may have finally crossed the line.
Quote
With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.

What would have happened if Hillary won ?

Would people be calling for Bill to be removed from the White House?

Think you have a fair point there whitey. I think given the ramifications of public opinion since Weinstein, a traditional politician like Hillary would have been under severe pressure regarding her behavior around the time of her husband's case. Would have caused a huge backlash, and had she been president, may well have been enough to prevent reelection.
There has been a lot of public retraction of support and people who were supportive of President Clinton who look back now And realize the error of their ways. (and his)

Teflon Don however, nothing sticks...

I think Henderson is a decent honest footballer, but Keita arrives and his number is up. Not sure Can is any different, stronger  but slower than JH. Henderson didn't have anything to offer to break down the massed defence. Salahs goal was excellent and created from nothing, he never actually looks at goal between getting the ball and shooting. That individual ability to break a defence is required at this level. Mane had a stinker.
Lovren is too prone to mistakes, as is mignolet, both surely on borrowed time. Klavan is a stop gap who did well yesterday. Robertson did well given lack of game time, Joe G is flying.

I'd rather Schmeichal than Van Dyke in January window. Also not clear to me what Liverpool would want with another winger.

Mane was off his game today- heavy touches and passes weighting off a fraction too.

foxy and whitey.

can Jeff Bezos also fire trump for his actual (non funny) completely false tweets?


first one on the economy is pure fishing - unless you are suggesting that some implemented legislation by Trump caused the economy to grow before he announced he was running for office?

Er has anyone asked the Dublin Govt or people in the South? I will bet money that any referendum would not reach anywhere near 40% in favour of unity and I'd doubt if it would endorse the North staying in the EU.Dont get over excited.

Baseless opinion with no data whatsoever, again...

Faisal Islam(@faisalislam)

DUP’s Paisley is now quoting the 4% GDP hit to the RoI economy as detailed in its own impact assessments of No Deal...
Note: there are no UK equivalents from which to quote


If 4%:roi could be 8% NI.  Paisley Óg is a moron

I have first hand experience of DUP's economic studies and unless there has been a significant change in the last couple of years, there is zero interest in economic facts or trends. They start with a politically charged answer and try and find some theory or data that could possibly be construed as supportive. They then stretch the truth, make completely unethical and illogical connections to support the pre-ordained conclusion.

They can be (and have been!) completely debunked by a bunch of QUB economics undergrads.

DUP studies, contradiction in terms, unless the word Bible is in there, and to be honest- even then...
