Sorry you had to go through the storm itself, prbiker, but glad you and your safe and sound in Miami. Thanks for the updates on what you've heard about how things are going there-good to hear a bit of positive news with the water supply, at least. Hopefully the government gets its butts in gear and sends more aid as soon as possible. Best of luck to you and everyone else who lives there.

That, and he needs to distract his supporters from the fact that he hasn't fulfilled his campaign promises to them or had any positive legislative victories, as well as try and keep the focus off the Mueller investigation.

(His "ratings" comments made me want to slap the guy, holy shit. This is not "The Apprentice", Trump, shut the hell up about ratings.)

And like I've said before, we tried to warn people of this very fact before the election last year. Thanks for not listening, Trump supporters!

Proud to be a Spurs fan today. This guy gets it, he gets life, he gets how to lead.

So the guy who pulled a gun on stage last night won the election in Alabama.

But Trump lost, so that's good?

He hardly lost though, considering he doesn't actually oppose this loser. It was a win win for him, they've publicized it.

Oh, ew, Moore won? Blech.

Just looked up the story about him pulling a gun out on stage, 'cause I hadn't heard about that. Lord, what a dumbass. Let's hope the Democrat running against him wins.

Judging from what I'm reading about Strange, he doesn't sound any better, and it doesn't surprise me one bit Trump would've endorsed him. What a fantastic crop of choices the GOP's offering up for voters .

Well there will be million articles about how Bannon has more power than Trump tomorrow morning, which means we'll probably nuke Pyongyang by lunch.

And I'm only half kidding.

All in the meanwhile the NFL and the Alabama republican primary have distracted us from Trump's inability to respond adequately to Puerto Rico.

I saw the clip earlier of Trump talking about Puerto Rico being an island in the middle of the ocean that BEAL mentioned.

Oh. My. God.

To say nothing of him talking about how he has a lot of time on his hands and also does a lot of work .

I just...I don't understand. I really don't. I never will.

For a moment I thought you were doing a bad (and not funny) impression of Trump.
Then I saw the video.

A friend of mine's mother moved back to Puerto Rico year after retiring. She still hasn't been heard from since the storm, and with the sheer lack of communication on the island, it's near impossible to know what happened.

And this juggle head is talking about football players.

Puerto Rico has more US citizens than Iowa.

I will openly state that Trump didn't fuck up Texas and Florida (let's see how they fully recover first. I have my doubts about FEMA under his watch)

But PR is a complete disaster. These people have nothing, and who knows what the death toll with be.

Yet the only acknowledgment from him is that they owe debt, and that the mayor/government has told him what a good job he's doing.

Always about him.

I say this a lot, but Mueller can't work fast enough

It's frustrating - pretty much all of our communication towers were tumbled to the ground. I still have a shitload of people that I don't know about.

It's definitely a bite in the ass to the local government (past and current administrations), who have always refused to give our infrastructure much-needed maintenance or an upgrade, and instead drove us down to debt. Now it'll take years to recover.

The orange clown will never get his head out of his ass because his properties in Puerto Rico went bankrupt. We hate him.

This article is a great read:

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-...the-new-uppity

Quote:
Yet the belief endures, from Armstrong’s time and before, that visible, affluent African-American entertainers are obliged to adopt a pose of ceaseless gratitude—appreciation for the waiver that spared them the low status of so many others of their kind. Stevie Wonder began a performance in Central Park last night by taking a knee, prompting Congressman Joe Walsh to tweet that Wonder was “another ungrateful black multi-millionaire.” Ungrateful is the new uppity. Trump’s supporters, by a twenty-four-point margin, agree with the idea that most Americans have not got as much as they deserve—though they overwhelmingly withhold the right to that sentiment from African-Americans. Thus, the wonder is not the unhinged behavior of this weekend but rather that it took Trump so long to exploit a target as rich in potential racial resentment as wealthy black athletes who have the temerity to believe in the First Amendment.

disagree on this one. i want him to take his time and make damn sure they have a lead pipe lock on a conviction before bringing charges. the last thing we want is for them to rush and the dipshit's lawyers find a way to get him off due to sloppy investigative work.

This plus if it happens too early then Pence may have time to do something. My hope is that it happens right before mid-terms.
