Re: Random Thoughts Again

So, I have 2 completely unrelated things I'd like to share. The first thing is a good friend of mine turned 50 yesterday. His wife had a party for him and it was a great time. He's a bit of a whiskey guy so several of us brought good bottles as gifts. Then we started sampling them. Some really good ...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I hope someone beans him, takes him for 3 months and he comes back for the last month of the season only to have his leg broken on a cheap slide on his first game back.

Re: Politics

And if you didn't understand my previous explanation of why a few facts do not necessarily make a story accurate, then so be it. It's confusing, I admit. Maybe you can help me out a little, though. The President of the United States gave an interview. In that interview, he complained about the Brex...

Re: Politics

Was he quoted accurately? Yes. Was the reporting regarding his perspective, generally-speaking, "fake news"? Yes, of course. What you leave out of a story can impact it's accuracy just as much as what you put in. Except that, contrary to his complaints, The Sun article did include his pos...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

If his Dad has any sense he drags that kid over to that house and makes him apologize to the girl and her parents. That will save him a lot of headaches in the future. Funny enough, I told my wife yeterday that I may go over there after work with my son and apologize to the family again. I feel tha...

Re: Politics

Actually, no. He said the Sun newspaper article about his criticism of Theresa May's Brexit plans was "generally fine", but that it ignored his positive comments about the PM. And he attributed the decision to focus on the negative aspects of his meeting with the PM to "fake news&quo...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Just wait til the kid starts drinking (is the kid who got into your whiskey cabinet?). No, that was another kid, and he has not been back in my house since that incident. As for what happened, it's indefensible. I'm just glad my son was willing to stand up to the whole thing. As for the kid who sai...

Re: Politics

So, yesterday Trump gave an interview to a Murdoch owned paper in which he criticized Theresa May. The Sun lead with that story and i believe released the audio of the interview. Today Trump called the story "fake news" and said he never said the things he is on tape saying. I wish I had b...

Re: Politics

I thought for sure he'd be done after 1 term but I'm less convinced lately. I guess we will find out.

I think November will be telling. If the Republicans get wiped out that may prompt him to call it quits. I don't think his ego could survive the possibility of an electoral defeat.

Re: Politics

Taking out an incumbent president isn't easy and it's rarely happens because of anything the challenging nominee does. It's almost always because of something that happens on the incumbentant's watch, and that "something" is usually some sort of economic collapse. GH Bush was a 1 term pres...
