    Donald has been watching Mean Girls again. Those put downs are so like 2004.
  3. KDB is effing incredible. If nothing else it is a pleasure watching him play.
  4. The last three Star Trek movies have been better than all the last 8 star wars movies. I do like The Force Awakens though.
  5. Don't worry negotiating trade deals is easy and we will all be better off because of them.

    It's just the adderall kicking in.
  7. But Boris promised he wouldn't do that! If only we had some indication that he wasn't telling the truth before the election.

    My faith or trust in the FBI is not relevant. The article you linked to said that the IG report uncovered an attempt to subvert democracy. All I did is point out that the conclusions of the report were exactly the opposite of that assertion. I do appreciate the apology though.

    Must read only if you want to take in a bunch of spin and BS. Here is the report The actual report says exactly the opposite of your or Greenwalds assertion. The utter frauds are the people claiming that the IG report in some way has uncovered a conspiracy in the FBI to subvert the democratic process.
  12. I can't put my left shoe on first. If I try to do my left shoe first it's like i have forgotten how to put shoes on. Put my right shoe on and the left one goes on no problem. It's the weirdest mental block and I have no idea why it happens.

    I have a bunch I listen to on the regular, a combination of comedy, geek and a bit of news. In no particular order Mission to Zyxx - An improvised comedy space epic. Hello from the Magic Tavern - An improvised comedy set in a magical world sort of like middle earth combined with Narnia. These both sound lame writing the description but they are both really funny. The infinite monkey cage - BBC science pod hosted by Prof Brian Cox with guests geeking out over cool science stuff. I love it. The Sin cast hosted by cinema sins. The guy behind the YouTube sensation cinema sins chat about all things movie. No such thing as a fish - the qi elves make funny about their fav fact of the week. Bag Man by Rachel Maddow is great for American History fans, telling the story behind the Nixon impeachment. Fascinating stuff. Apologies if there is some repetition that others have already recommended, but I only want to add to the enthusiasm. I'm sure I have others but I forget them right now.

    You have conveniently moved the goal posts again. There does not need to be a quid-pro-quo for Trump to have committed impeachable offenses. It is yet another Republican talking point that has been rebutted many times, including in the report I provided. There is also ample evidence of a quid-pro-quo as unnecessary as it is to provide it. As to restricting the president and future ones with the impeachment. It is not the actions now that are trying to restrict Trump it is the enforcement of the constitution. The constitution does indeed give the President almost unfettered ability to persue foreign policy. It does however insist that the policy be on behalf of the American people. Trump was and is still using the office of the president and all the power that comes with it for his own personal gain at the expense of the USA. Stopping a president from doing this now only restricts future ones from flouting the constitution, which is exactly what impeachment is for. Unless you think the Trump should be allowed to use his office in this way. I mean if you are cool with what he has done then by all means say so. Also your definition of quite clearly differs significantly from mine.
