    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    I expected something like this to take place on January 21st, 2017, to be honest. Well, I'm sure so did a lot of you here. I think it's time to try to pretend again Trump doesn't exist and immerse myself in just about anything else. Sports, especially - for myself and watching, since someone...

    Nancy Pelosi Announces Impeachment Inquiry

    You are not the only one. Others had made similar comments during the last government shutdown. She seems to know exactly how to act with Trump. She keeps things simple and she's not rushing anything. It all makes sense to me. I quoted this article in my previous post, but the whole article is...

    Nancy Pelosi Announces Impeachment Inquiry

    On the other hand, my brain has an easy time following Pelosi's: That's right on. Just do your job and let the Senate bear the weight of their decision, whatever it will be. Yes, or Putin's. I always assumed that this was mostly why it seemed so easy for him to have good words for dictators...

    Nancy Pelosi Announces Impeachment Inquiry

    ‘Out on a limb’: Inside the Republican reckoning over Trump’s possible impeachment I'll definitely refrain from raising my hopes up for democracy in the US, no matter the facts that come out. I'll just stand by and watch the events unfold... if it's not too depressing. Not a single one of...

    Nancy Pelosi Announces Impeachment Inquiry

    At this point, this is no longer a fact issue or a matter of proving anything. Bullying political opponents, bullying other countries, bullying members of their own party. Trump bullied his way through his entire life while getting the worst out of others, turning many into bullies...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    Yes. The Republican party will let Trump down at the moment they will realize they have more to lose than to gain by sticking with him. With someone as unstable as him, I suppose that will happen eventually, but when? How much damage will it take? I'm sure no one can answer that. Right now, they...

    #Canada150 (Canadian politics and related issues)

    There was an article in today's newspaper, in French alas: https://www.lapresse.ca/elections-federales/201909/19/01-5241868-justin-et-la-lampe-magique.php Believe me, I don't mean to defend Trudeau; I don't particularly care about him. I just thought I had perhaps a different perspective to...

    Love, Balls and Courting: Tennis V

    Thanks. Patrick Mouratoglou, in the pre-match show prior to the men's final, was just asked if he'd ever seen anyone return Serena's serve like Bianca and he said he hadn't. He reminded Serena had served well the whole tournament and said there was nothing before the match that could have led...

    Love, Balls and Courting: Tennis V

    One reason Serena's serve was an issue was that Bianca had a lot of success when Serena started the point from a 2nd serve. Up until 5-1 in the second set, as soon as there was a rally, Bianca's chances to grab the point were much higher than Serena's. At one point in the match, Serena had won...

    Gun violence (Again!)

    Well, victim Noah Pozner had an open coffin. Look at what happened to his family, if you didn't already know: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Pozner If families release pictures, some people look at the pictures for signs of photoshopping. Families who are militating can be targeted. Who...

    Lawsuits against USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar, etc. - news & updates

    I started having a bit of hope on that front. Of course, some initiations had to make the news for that to happen, but I believe universities around here have started taking a closer look at what's going on. Of course I can't know for sure how durable and widespread any changes have been because...

    Lawsuits against USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar, etc. - news & updates

    What she was doing was manipulation or retaliation. Ignoring someone counts as abuse to me in that context. Besides, if your parents were paying her to coach you and she wouldn't, wouldn't that be financial abuse, as well?
