    Nate White, a witty writer from England wrote the perfect response. “A few things spring to mind… Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief. Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty. Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers. And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness. There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface. Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront. Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul. And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist. Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that. He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat. He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege. And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead. There are unspoken rules to this stuff – the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a gentleman should, would, could never do – and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down. So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third – of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think ‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that: Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are. You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man. This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss. After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; He is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum. God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid. He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart. In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump. And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish: ‘My God… what… have… I… created? If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.”

    Sox you can scream and rant and rave and lose your mind over "libs" and "demons" all day long, but many Americans, well more than 50%, and plenty who are not liberal at all, do not trust this president, they don't believe this president, and they are embarrassed by this president. So we don't give a flying fuck what he says at his rallies, or on his website, or other lists of "accomplishments." Kushner helped him pass criminal justice reform, and he slightly tweaked and re-branded NAFTA. Any other "accomplishment" (tax bill, rapid reckless troop withdrawal, health care, etc.) is as much shit as it is good, if not more so.

    Here's the actual thing: https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/hres109/BILLS-116hres109ih.pdf Don't see anything about drinking pee or paying people that don't want to work but there are many ISIS-worthy goals like:. Universal access to clean water Removing pollution from the food production cycle as much as technologically feasible Investing in zero emission vehicle infrastructure Creating policies that reduce the transfer of jobs overseas Providing citizens with access to health care. Oh God, the horror. It's like some sort of Lovecraftian nightmare. No wonder Fox News hates her.

    Manafort Reaches Plea Deal

    Well, of course he's a Russian agent. But let's not confuse terms. If you mean KGB agent - which I guess is what this is implying - that is of course highly speculative at this point. But whether officially in the KGB or not, Manafort is most certainly an agent for Russia. He has been one for over a decade. I don't know why it doesn't get talked about more, but Manafort was essentially the SPOKESMAN for Putin in Eastern Europe, as he went around trying to undermine and destabilize countries in that region. Like, that was literally his job description. Another huge detail that has gotten lost in the mix is there are indications in Manafort's little black book that he had a hand in the events that led to the invasion and annexation of Crimea. Which, judging by his history, of course he had something to do with that. That was in his department. So whether Manafort undertook the KGB agent oath, who the fuck knows, probably not. But he is most certainly an agent of Russia and Russian intelligence, has been for years, and has reported to and taken direction from the highest levels of the Russian government. This is all in black and white, some of it in Manafort's own handwriting. In other words, there is "evidence."

    So let me get this straight: Kamala Harris lies about the music she listened to in college and Rolltard loses his fucking mind. Trump lies about shit that actually matters and it’s crickets from him.

    None of these conservatards even know what socialism actually is much less are able to state with any consistency or accuracy the nuances or positions of several different members of the democratic party which is far more wide-ranging in views than the Republican party which basically has a few factions that believe in different shades of the same thing. To these morons, Dems = government fixes all problems through spending and Repubs = freedom and shit for individuals and that's about the height of the sophistication of their argument. Of course it's all actually about wealth, power, and opportunities but they don't have a clue about those arguments because they've been blindly gobbling up the words of fake news, conservative opinion talk shows, and terrible politicians with literally no morals for so long. They're angry and they don't even understand that is exactly how they are supposed to feel but not because they have any real reason to be angry but rather that they've been conditioned.

    Two things have to happen imo.... Universal Healthcare and a jobs program that pays people a real living wage. People like soxcat have been brainwashed to believe making the richest people pay their fair share is somehow "stealing from the rich". The latest tax cut was just outright theft by the richest people The way things are going I can really see of this stuff actually happening, the gap in wealth inequality is getting too massive and too many people are suffering. Suddenly single payer and a high marginal tax rate are not scoffed at like it's evil socialism

    Manafort Reaches Plea Deal

    A federal judge just ruled that Manafort lied to Mueller. His plea deal is void. More jail time, possibly life in prison. Why do all of Trump's people keep lying? Still waiting on conservatives to explain this.

    I don't think it's so much a matter of people being sensitive about Mariota; the vast majority of people agree that he struggled and has to play better. There will always be a very small-but-vocal minority that insists Marcus is fine and everyone else is the problem. You can choose to engage them if you like, but their opinion will never be swayed...so what's the point? But the opposite is equally true: constantly deflecting blame to Marcus for other players' poor performance is just as annoying and inaccurate as never blaming Marcus. Marcus struggled...he *has* to improve in a number of critical areas. There's nothing more that can be said about him that hasn't already been discussed ad nauseum over the past two years. But the same can be said for the receiving corps and O-line. Blame Marcus all you want....NOBODY can honestly say those groups played well last year or did anything to elevate their game and help their struggling QB. Their consistently subpar and uneven performance only exacerbated and amplified Marcus' struggles. Rather than helping to improve the offense, they only made matters worse.

    Most of our allies (pre-Trump) have far higher tax rates and far more sweeping welfare programs. Is the UK, Europe's center of banking (up until Brexit), socialist? Canada? France? No one is talking about becoming the USSR or Cuba or Venezuela. Having social programs does not make a country socialist. The real problem is that Republicans have been throwing the word socialist around as if they know what it means. It’s been going on for at least a decade now. Anything to the left of Fox News is socialism to them.

    This topic is an example of the butterfly chasing, attention deficient mentality of too many Trump supporters. At last night's rally, Trump lied about the wall being built, he lied about the statistics on the border, he lied about the crime rate in El Paso, he told several lies. The crowd wasn't concerned about his lies and alternative facts. They were more interested in chanting "lock her up". As of today, Trump has lied over 7000 times in two years. He has 12 pages of falsehoods on Politifact. However, @Rolltide wants to focus on Kamala Harris lying about listening to a rapper who died in 1996. Tupac moved to California in 1988. He was a member of Digital Underground. Harris could say, she heard him with Digital Underground, a friend had an early mix tape, she might be flat out lying or claim she heard it in the same locker room that Trump was giving his "talks". Does it really matter? Is anyone going to vote for Harris because she listened to Tupac? Hillary was hanging out with Beyoncé and Jay-Z. How did that work out for her? This entire thread is just a another diversion for Trump supporters like @Rolltide to project, scream libtard hypocrisy while ignoring the lying, orange elephant in the room. https://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/false/

    2019 Draft News and Rumors

    @tgo I just can't get on board the 1st round WR train, in a Smith/Mariota offense just think it would be a huge waste of resources, can sign a veteran WR in FA and draft one in the 2nd-4th rounds that can come in and help this offense. IOL and TE would provide a much bigger boost to this offense next season.
