RE: UK & USA ELECTIONS THIS YEAR. UKRAINE?

It's time to ask the citizens of Ukraine.

A public vote is needed to decide whether to keep on fighting or to end it now.

Russian forces outnumber Ukrainian troops by up to 10 times in the eastern regions.

Ukraine's parliament passed a bill which will oblige Ukrainian men between 18 and 60 to update their personal data with the military authorities to allow draft offices to see more easily who can be called up in any given region.

The people should be given truthful details of casualties to date. So far families don't always know if their sons and fathers are still alive because they are often listed as missing.

They should be told what the chances are of winning the war and driving the Russians completely out of their land. And this should come from an independant source, not Zelensky.

Patriotism and pride is all very well, it makes for good fighting talk but reality must kick in at some stage.

When this is over it wouldn't surprise me if Putin looks for war reparations.

RE: How can anyone vote for Trump, when even his staff won’t support him.

I pointed out that he's unlikely to be able to change the Constitution and gave reasons why in case people were getting worried about the impending doom that was being spread. If that helped to put some peoples minds at ease then I'm happy. The ones who want to rant like hysterical turkeys will continue to do so because of 'free speech' which they abuse.

If you know it's rhetoric then why fall for it?

If it makes you feel better to hear my opinion of Trump then I will say that he is not someone I would want as a neighbour never mind a President but I won't join the Trump Haters Club.

Can you tell me how he will actually accomplish these things.

"They believe he will destroy the constitution."

And

"Trump will force dictatorship onto a once land of the free."

RE: How can anyone vote for Trump, when even his staff won’t support him.

Morning Gs.

I'm not pro-Trump or anyone else.

When I don't condemn Trump people seem to assume that I'm pro-Trump which is why I pointed out that I'm not pro-Trump.

I hope I've clarified that.

I am solely addressing the issue, not the person. Specifically the accuracy of the statement that Trump could change the Constitution.

I pointed out that it is unlikely he could "destroy" the Constitution and I gave reasons for my opinion.

If you still can't understand then I'm done here because the reactions from some are ott.

Did you contribute to the Lincon Project?

They raised $80 million in two years, mostly from small donations, probably from people who could only afford to pay a small amount.

They spent it on advertising from companies which were all controlled by the board members of the Lincon Project after which all but two of these directors have left.

In order to 'get' one grifter you get taken by a bunch of shysters.

I guess you just can't win. comfort

E&OE as I've put my own slant on this story.

RE: How can anyone vote for Trump, when even his staff won’t support him.

The Courts in New York use New York State Law to prosecute Trump because it suits them. But when they don't get the Verdict they want from the Jury they twist the Legal Jury’s Verdict in order to achieve their desired wording.
If you want to see a recent example of this shenanigans look at the case of the 'Changing Room Affair'.

This is what goes on in your mind. A lot of conjecture and sleepless nights I'd say.

RE: Embroiled...

The heading of the blog is misleading in that Trump was not involved in this crime of fraud. The only mention of his name is in the name of the company which was to be merged at some future date.

Also share prices go up and down all the time so to disparage Trump for this is simply wrong.

RE: Is Donald Trump actually an Anti-Christ?

The provocation of the expansion of NATO and Ukraine applying for EU membership was the final straw.

As long as a country is at war they cannot join NATO, so Putin imposed war on Ukraine, and will maintain war for the foreseeable future or he will create a buffer zone, the eastern half (or third) of Ukraine which he will want to keep.

Are you saying that Trump can get two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate to approve a constitutional amendment? If yes please explain because I think it's unlikely.

Yea, not good.

RE: How can anyone vote for Trump, when even his staff won’t support him.

Come to what? That he gets the majority?

It's hardly likely, but feel free to blow your horn any time.

Just a reminder, I'm not pro-Trump.

This is about one man changing the Constitution.

RE: How can anyone vote for Trump, when even his staff won’t support him.

That's all just Bluff and Bluster. He can't change the Constitution single handed. He needs a lot of cooperation from government (2/3 majority in both houses) to make changes to the Constitution. No, there are a lot of people (MAGA people) who love Trump’s fighting talk, that's all it is.

These were the remarks I was addressing.

"They believe he will destroy the constitution."

And

That's comedy.

Can you tell me how he will actually accomplish these things. conversing

From the Legal Dictionary.

Definition of Fraud

Wrongful deception with the intent to gain personally or financially.

Intentional deception in order to persuade another person to part with something of value.

A person who pretends to be something or someone he is not.

Check all. Nothing to see here.

Standard negotiation skills.

RE: God Bless the USA! Court Lowers Trump Bond From $464 Million to $175 Million. Due in 10 days.

Ok so I missed the exceptions clause in the Constitution for 16 yr old black people who 'Shall not be given equal rights', my bad.

RE: God Bless the USA! Court Lowers Trump Bond From $464 Million to $175 Million. Due in 10 days.

The Left have had their day oz and they went astray, but who can blame those folk who are trying to turn America into a Progressive, Liberal, Far Left, Social Democratic Country in order to push their preferred lifestyle.

But it's time to get back to reality. It's time to get back to making America a great Republic again, which is how it was founded and is how the Constitution was designed.
It is also a Capitalist country. It was founded on Capitalism, not Socialism or Democracy. The land of opportunity. That last sentence is lacking one word though, Equal. The reason for that is because the Constitution was designed to exclude it. Ok that wasn't a great idea to begin with but the amendments have tried to address issues like that.
So what we have is a Republic with equal rights and opportunities for all, notwithstanding 'for the greater good'.

Have I left anything out?

Oh yes, unfortunately the People don’t get to elect the President or most Members of Parliament and Judges. They only get to select the Presidential candidate. That little piece of Democracy should be ammended into the Constitution, in my opinion.
Then America would have a pretty good workshop manual.

RE: God Bless the USA! Court Lowers Trump Bond From $464 Million to $175 Million. Due in 10 days.

quote
"That's just one example of what Trump did fraudulently. Judge Engoron's summary judgement was based on the maths (Mar-a-Largo valued at $18M in one set of official documents and $1B+ in another, for example.) Letitia James put so much documentary evidence in front of him, he was able to say there was widespread fraud within the Trump Organisation over a 10-15 year period."

This is where the whole problem originates. They have singled out Trump and are going after him.
I already explained that he has done nothing that is not part of shrewd business practices and potential market opportunities.

In the interest of equality they now need to investigate every other developer in the USA.

Looking at two sets of figures tells you that they are different, nothing more.

You cannot invent your own conclusions, which indicates either childish behaviour or nefarious intent on the part of the prosecution and the court officials.

Then we have the bloodthirsty masses cheering on the crucifixion.

And no I am not pro-Trump.

That's it, I'm out.

RE: God Bless the USA! Court Lowers Trump Bond From $464 Million to $175 Million. Due in 10 days.

If they admitted that the Bond was too high then by default the fine was too high, they go hand in hand. The 8th is in the Bill of Rights, and an amendment to the Constitution. It provides protection from the Courts to the Citizens of the USA. The Constitution was well thought out and well written, it should be abided by, for everyone.

RE: oregon farming laws

The video man said irrigation is excluded yet watering the lawn is irrigation which he said is included.

But the funny part is that water used in irrigation goes straight back into the ground. Maybe the plants use some and some evaporates but most goes back. You should get a credit off your meter for that.

They didn't give a reason. It was excessive, so maybe it was the 8th ammendment. It would be good to know, even just to see what worked for him.
