  1. Only seven months in and.... President Trump, with at least two years of full Republican control of government at the national and state levels, has systematically damaged or destroyed his relationship with — well, almost every group or individual essential to success. This has left him on an island inhabited by a shrinking band of true-believer voters, who can help win an election, but can do nothing to help him exploit the power he's wasting: Yesterday's mass exodus of CEOs from his outside business councils was an unusually abrupt sign of the 210 days of rot and erosion in his support. A vivid demonstration of the sudden abandonment of Trump, via CNN's Brian Stelter: Shep Smith said he couldn't get a single Republican to go on Fox News to defend Trump. On MSNBC, Chuck Todd said he "invited every single Republican senator on this program tonight, all 52," plus a dozen House GOPers. None would do it. On CNN, Kate Bolduan said bookers called 55 Republicans, and only one said yes. Why it matters: Trump's undisciplined and incendiary style has left the most powerful man in the world with few friends — not onein the United States Senate, for instance. Trump started with a pretty clean slate but has methodically alienated: The public: Gallup has his approval at 34%, down from 46% just after the inauguration. Republican congressional leaders — Senate Majority Mitch McConnell in particular. Every Democrat who could help him do a deal. The media. CEOs. World leaders. Europe. Muslims. Hispanics. African Americans. Military leaders. The intelligence community. His own staff. And who's happy? Steve Bannon. Saudi Arabia. Breitbart. David Duke. Be smart: The presidency is a lonely job. But Trump is unusually isolated because he thinks he needs no one besides himself. As one of his most ardent defenders told me: "He's just not as good as he thinks he is. And no one can tell him."
  2. Just got home. Being in the pit was a surreal experience. Definitely glad I spent the extra $$$ for the experience. Really happy with the show and the setlist. Was also great to hear Axl talk about more. The Coma nugget of information was pretty cool. I'll post more and share some pics/videos tomorrow. Pretty wiped.
  3. @Powerage5 and I will be rocking Pit (Duff side) tonight! Can't wait!
  4. Not sure why you're shocked... Bush Sr was always adamant about rejecting bigotry and white national movements, even while President. He gave forceful speeches that rejected bigotry and hatred. This isn't news in the way you think it is.
  5. No, not at all. It's not equating anything with anyone with respect to the alt-right or "left" (btw, I love the notion that peaceful or violent responses to bigotry is now defined as being a leftist movement; wasn't there an all out war to rid Nazis and white supremacy from Europe?). It's mocking a President who seemed hung up on the trivial (i.e., permits for a protest) when the more serious issue relates to the message championed by the alt-right and those who demonstrated in support of inane "historical" monuments.
  6. Kind of missing the point...
  7. Yep. Read this article yesterday about why they're so easy to take down... Apparently most of these monuments are of the Walmart variety; cheap and mass produced.
  8. LOL... Donald Trump says Rebel Alliance must also take blame for violence as Death Star had all the required permits Donald Trump has insisted the Rebel Alliance must take their share of the blame for the violence in the Star Wars universe after revealing the Empire had all the necessary permits to gather at the Death Star. Speaking to reporters to clarify his position on the violent battles fought between the two sides, Trump explained that the fake news media are ignoring all the good people inside in the Empire. “I don’t see anyone talking about the bad people inside the Rebel Alliance charging at the Death Star even though it had all the necessary paperwork in place and was allowed to be there. “The Empire followed the rules, and went about its business within the rule of law, is that so wrong? Are we criticising people for obeying the law now? “If we’re going to blow up Death Stars just because they’re symbols of oppression, what next? The Sith Temple on Korriban?” Trump also went on to deny that he is racist, insisting that his favourite member of the Empire is entirely black. “No-one has done more to bring harmony to the universe than me, nobody,” he went on. “You all agree with me, and even if you don’t agree with me, you definitely agree with me that there was violence on both sides, that’s all I’m saying. “Remember, with our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.” Trump supporters have welcomed the clarification of the President’s position, especially in light of his previous pre-prepared statement that appeared to condemn the Empire. Trump voter Chuck Williams told us, “Obviously what he said about the Empire the day before was written by the Rebel Alliance libtard cucks inside his administration. “But thankfully the power of the dark side is strong within Trump, as you will all come to realise, in time.”

  10. Figured with the U.S. mid-term elections commencing tomorrow, figured I'd start a thread on all things U.S. elections (if you're interested in Presidential elections, we'll see you in two years). Looks like the Senate is going to be handed back to the Republicans after 8 years of Democrat control. I suppose Obama's use of the veto will skyrocket over the next couple of years. If you've been impressed with how unproductive Congress has been since 2010, just wait until you see how little gets done and passed over the next two! And then there's also the state elections. John Oliver covers this pretty well here:
