    It would be heartening if enough anti Trump voters mobilised in the mid terms to decimate the GOP seats in congress. Maybe that would dent the cult of personality that is protecting Trump atm?

    Absolutely

    I don't doubt that this is the truth of it. But still, the establishment lost people and Russia just capitalised on it. Our trust in our governments had to be lost first.

  8. Today
  9. The Cricket Thread

    Really impressive batting performance yesterday. This is clearly not Australia's best side and I have no doubt that Smith and Warner will be welcomed back into the team once their suspensions are up along with the three fast bowlers when they are fit. But of course we are also missing two very important players in Stokes and Woakes and we shouldn't forget that we thrashed them in Australia when those players were available. It's also good to see Ali doing so well with the ball at the moment. I think if we are to win the world cup next year, him and Rashid will have to do well for us. I wonder whether the ICC will look to make any changes to the format of ODI's any time soon. There has been quite a bit of talk that it's no longer a fair contest between bat and ball on the back of this result/score. Jimmy Anderson was saying on TMS yesterday that he didn't think that there was anything on offer for the bowlers with them bowling good balls that are getting smashed because the pitch and ball is offering nothing. He also made the point that when he was a kid going to games he would come away remembering and talking about one great boundary/ball/catch but with there being so many boundaries everything just blurred into on. I think he's probably got a point and yesterday's game certainly was anything but a nail biter, but I can't see the ICC wanting to do much to bring scores down. Superficially people want to see the ball being hit for six or four as much as possible first and foremost and the authorities will want to do as much as possible to keep people coming through the gates.

    Anyone seen that documentary on PBS? I only caught a bit of it (can't remember the name either) but it's about the presidential campaign. In particular the timing of events was crucial to what big stories received the most attention. Obama knew that the Russians had been interfering with the election and that it came with the highest authority, i.e. Putin. They were reticent about going that far in terms of releasing the details because Obama and his advisers were worried about an outgoing Democrat president influencing the election by releasing damaging links between the Republican candidate and foreign intervention from Russia. In the end the story stated that it was impossible that Putin couldn't have known, without actually detailing the proof that that he approved the whole thing (CIA had intercepted various communications showing as much). The story was still a big one though, a foreign state actively trying to influence the outcome of the US presidential election. But here's the thing, the story was released and was just beginning to gain leverage with all the networks when the story about the recording of Trump having the conversation about grabbing women by the crotch etc. also came out. The salacious nature of this almost completely buried the story about Russian influence before it was properly in the public consciousness. Then, when the Trump story was just dying down those heroic freedom fighters at Wikileaks (who weren't at all played by the Russians) started releasing the Russian hackers stuff.

    I saw a bit of Bill Maher the other night where he was suggesting if he does get a second term which is plausible given how solid his base is, he wouldn't be surprised if he tries to abolish the term limits. He also reckoned if he loses or is impeached he won't go quietly and will call upon his base to take to the streets.

    We're sick of so-called experts like you.

    Very neatly summed but I ask you, couldn't they have gotten a PERSON OF COLOUR to give that speech? Another old white man. YAWNSVILLE, am I right?

    I found myself thinking the jacket wasn't that bad.

    My mate. But then again, he does have epilepsy.

    Putin must be laughing his tits off
  25. Precedent Trump

    Trump is a disaster for the US. I don’t know how anybody could pretend otherwise. If he was my president I’d be deeply ashamed of him, what a horrible old prick. And what a bunch of cunts back him up, from sessions the racist elf to that Miller bloke who’d have been right at home in nazi germany.
