    Corax Luke 5:16. Acts 4:35.

    Now the tax bill has passed he's gone virtually no chance of it ever happening. In fact, now he's lost that bargaining chip with the GOP, he's going to find he's increasingly isolated on all matters. The Republicans have erected roadblocks and grudgingly protected him thus far, but they've no reason to now as they have what they wanted. Mueller's going to have far more cooperation from them, or at least far less obstruction, and those that are after his blood will be allowed to close in. Behind the veil of pretence needed to get the "Tax Cut and Jobs Act" on the books, the Republicans despise him almost as much as the democrats, and would be very pleased to see him gone.

    tldr; Trump's fucked, and all it's taken is preferential treatment of the rich, 13 million losing health insurance, destruction of the Alaskan environment, underfunding of schools, and a big fuck you to the victims of natural disasters.

    Are you taking hotel walls into account? I think he's milked the US treasury for quite a bit there.

    greenwich is south of the river. newham is north of the river, and contains the excel centre which hosts the arms fair to which you refer. they are different boroughs, hash tag.

    I went to a Guillermo del Toro exhibition yesterday and there was a wax figure of Hans from the 1932 movie "Freaks" that looked uncannily like a shrunken Trump.

    I'm inclined to go say hello to whoever does turn up to open the place, e.g. Tillerson as has been suggested, and ask after their boss.

    Rex Tillerson sounds like the guy who comes to recruit you for S.H.I.E.L.D after the accident at the lab that led to your superpowers.

    Woody Johnson sounds more like a delivery boy from Big Sausage Pizza than an ambassador.

    Anyone bother to tell thes clowns that London is not in the USA?

    I'd like to see more of this sort of thing tbh. Hopefully it will lead to these libertarian common-law Twatty-of-the-family-McTwatface self-propelled sacks of fertiliser being summarily booted out of anarchist or leftist spaces and events on the grounds that they're all basically just fascists in bad jumpers.

    oh christ, it's those loons who among other things want the right to bear arms restored.:facepalm:
    much as I'd like an SLR for a bit of plinking I can think of numerous reasons why that would be a terrible idea:(.
    although from a liberatarian or constitutional law they do have a point its just barking.

    bit like the campaign against Nexus magazine for being anti semetic they may well publish anti semetic nonsense but they publish all the moonbat theorys

    I'm not sure they'd actually be counted as racists its mostly wibbling madness possibly counts as racism but regretting the British empire due to it leading to race mixing :facepalm: racism is way way down list of issues these people have:hmm:
