 If that report was in a real newspaper, I might be prepared to pay some attention to it. I see a clickbait link next to the main story claiming that Clinton could still end up President. Yeah, Right.

And a real newspaper is, in your expert opinion?

A bit closer to a real newspaper - reporting the same, kind of:

 

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/vladimir-putin-returns-but-ill-health-rumours-continue-over-pale-puffy-and-sweaty-face-10111646.html

 

A very interesting collection of wild speculation.  Still, we're all mortal.

Indeed we are all mortal.

 

I think The Independent isn't as good as it was when it was first launched. That was my first task of the day, across to the newsagents for a copy of it and read it during breakfast.

Dingbatt: I have to smile every time I hear the "Drain the Swamp" line.
Reminds me of the saying "When you are up to your a$$ in alligators it's hard to remember the original idea was to drain the Swamp".
Funny if all they find after draining the swamp is a couple of rusty prams and some fish flapping around in the mud.....

 

A friend of mine works for EPA in DC, and from what I gather from facebook posts, he's got a swamp-dwelling feeling going on.  After dedicating his career to protecting the environment, he's surprised to learn from his new leader that the environment doesn't need protection..  What a waste of a PhD - he had such talent - could have used his skills to build weapons.

Why in God's name would disaffected marginalised "losers" choose a billionaire messiah who runs beauty pageants, routinely abuses "losers" - for being "losers", and flies around the USA in a gold-plated Boeing 757?

 

 

This is something I still can't understand. People in the lower demographics claim Trump is not part of the establishment. He's a billionaire, real estate investor that lives a life of kings and these people think he'll help them?

 

Tell me in four years.

Isn't the human capacity for irrationality wonderful?

Well it looks like Trump may not make it to the White House. Seems like Katy Perry is calling for a revolution...

 

Perry for President, maybe Miley for Vice.

I hate to do this to you - but haven't you been arguing strongly against freedom of choice when it came to marijuana law reform?

 

But freedom of choice is wonderful, even if it's used in a democratic process to select a leader who you know for a fact will cause harm to others?

CNN says the protests are spreading. If you believe CNN.

Off topic but OK

 

Marijuana is not legal so freedom of choice is not relevant. If the elected representatives change the law then freedom of choice applies.

Well CNN said Hillary was going to win...

 

Then again most of the media outlets did.

It's surely created a great warm fuzzball of bonhomie in the USA.
