If heading is banned maybe players should be allowed to hold the ball in their hands. The EPL could be rearranged on a county basis

Immigration is a distraction from the real issue

The richest 1% of Americans own $21 trillion dollars in stocks

That would buy a decent healthcare system with enough left over for dessert.

I remember when some Democrats were happy that Donald "ha can't possibly beat Hillary" Trump took the GOP nomination.

Believe me, I am under no illusions about Bernies viability as a candidate. It was a calculated wager I made. If Bernie did win though, there’s an increased chance the Democrats will loose the house and not a chance they’ll win the Senate

People wanted change in 2016
Corrupt establishment, bled the country dry etc

Brandon Lewis: There will be no border down the Irish sea

On a visit ******derry The Northern Ireland Secretary said that "we want to make sure there is unfettered access between GB and Northern Ireland".

He added: "We want to make sure that the United Kingdom is one whole union, and one that is good for business across the United Kingdom.

"We've always said there will not be a border down the Irish Sea, there will be unfettered access for business."

Jeffrey Donaldson wants special consideration for NI. Yet they want total linearity with the UK. Funny.

For the points system that is.

Cummings doesn't give a flying f**k about NI
I would hate to be a loyalist  given this.

Detroit recently ran out of money.

Kelvyn Orr was charged with finding a solution.
He offered debtholders 20% on the dollar. I think they ended up with 30%.
Most debt is owned by the 1%
Most debt now will not be repaid in full. They tore the
arse out of it. The Fed did too.

So what do you tell the dad who worked extra shifts, drove old cars and didn’t take vacations in order to  pay for his daughters college?

Why shouldn’t he get his money back?

This debt forgiveness isn’t a fringe position (like the sex change operations)-this a major policy position that will cost trillions of dollars.

I honestly don't know what the solution is.

But you have to start somewhere.

100% debt forgiveness has no chance of ever becoming law anyway, IMO. I'd probably go back to the idea of paying a certain percentage of your income for 15-20 years or whatever, with the government covering the rest. Omit the art or Greek and Roman history degrees from the programme if you wish. Regardless of what they do, SOME people are going to be pissed off.

What do YOU think should be done?

(I drive a ten year old car BTW, and myself and my wife are STILL paying off her student loans, 15 years after she finished!).

Debt can be reduced to nothing with inflation.
There was a big debt overhang in 1945 that was reduced consistently until 1960

Immigration is part of the economic system. Demand for houses and schools increases economic growth . Unfortunately immigration puts pressure on infrasructure and eventually GOP roofers have to drive 2 hours to get to the job. Nothing lasts forever.

 Mainstream Dems still think immigration is a humanitarian issue. Most of them work for the plutocrats.

In the UK the debate is the same.. Stop immigration . Don't change anything else. But the deplorables are pissed off about everything.

The question is for how long the plutocrats can plámás them.

Healthcare and prisons are 25% of US GDP or 1 in 4 dollars spent.

This is approx 10% of GDP higher than OECD averages and it all goes to the beloved 1% of Whitey and Gmac.

Stein was an official in Nixon's admin. Stein's law says that if something cannot go on forever it will stop.

A guy who gets up at 3:00 am to drive two hours to a roofing job, while his wife is working the overnight shift will never vote for a candidate who will provide healthcare to illegals and who’s tax dollars will be used to abolish the student debts of people who’ve never grafted a day in their lives

Jesus wept. So your roofer will happily keep on paying extortionate health insurance premiums to the legalized extortion racket known as "private health insurance" as long as undocumented people get to die of cancer for lack of money?

And what's all this about graduates never having worked?

And your response is exactly why he’ll be voting for Trump again this year

Thank you

Your response doesn't make any sense whitey.

You guys just don’t seem to accept that the Democrats have lost their traditional white working class vote.. He essentially called the guy stupid
Identity politics split the working class vote post 1980 but it is not a law of nature. Far left LOLZ issues such as cheaper healthcare are attractive to law and order types.

His wife will. Especially in the swing states.
Why does he have to drive 2 hours?
How much does he earn compared to 1975? Adjusted for inflation.
Will he be amenable to culture wars indefinitely?
And would he support soaking the rich?


Great....you’re all set then
What did Trump do for blue collar voters since 2016, Whitey.?

The Democrats are doubling down on the strategy that lost them the last election and gone even further to the left if that’s possible, trump voters will probably vote for him again and he wins something similar to last election maybe even a little more . , pandering to left wing looms is not a strategy for winning.

Clinton was business as usual.
Are women in Ohio going to vote for Trump? The GOP vote there fell in the 2018 mid terms.

Doesn't look like we're going to get the presidency. Best bet might be to try and flip those four senate seats, take back the senate, impeach him again, and this time remove him from office. But even there the odds aren't good.

Dems to take the senate: 9/4
Rethuglicans to keep the senate: 1/6

Trump ran last time on "the world is fucked".
Now he is saying that everything has been fixed.
And it hasn't.

How will the deplorables feel about this ?

The deplorables will believe anything he says no matter how outlandish, and Fox News will just amplify it.
Deplorable women are less fond of Trump


And will hos dementia be cured by November?
