Like another dictator!!
Upon his capture, Saddam Hussein had a "Nestle Kit Kat Chunky" chocolate bar on his person.
A number of videos clearly show there are a number of empty "Nestle Kit-Kat Chunky" wrappers clearly visible in his hidey hole in ad-Dawr.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

William Hill Turf/betting in the UK is taking bets on Trump not finishing his first Term- 2 to 1 that he will be impeached, and 13 to 8 that he will resign. Interesting.

What is your bet?

He certainly won't be resigning. Only way he will be finishing early is if he's impeached.

It would be wonderful if Trump ends the unjustified sanctions against Russia. Russia can be one of America's best friend.

Microsoft, Snap and Netflix are additionally signatories to the temporary, based on one particular person concerned within the effort.

The temporary will urge the US to make a “elementary dedication” to welcoming immigrants, whereas recommending that elevated background checks can adequately defend the nation.

Same issue in US as in Switzerland, even with the best will in the world high tech firms need highly qualified employees. Sadly you cannot recycle coal miners or farm workers into these roles

Welcome but you should be in this thread

Is it true Putin has given Trump 19.5% of Rosneft?

Latest tweets seem like a combination of the rhetoric of Kim Jong Un and the sound a prolapsed rectum makes.

In terms of his public speeches and rhetoric, people need to remember that all politicians have a mask and every person who wants to make any rational decision needs to look who is behind the mask.
However, unlike most politicians, Trump's public mask does not obscure his real face, but it deliberately and loudly accentuates it to get into the public eye.
The big difference is that he is not a politician, he's a businessman and reality TV star.

Precisely.

Call me old school, but I think writing in caps is the height of bad manners, though I have been guilty of it myself when I'm really peeved. But let's just ponder this direct quote from Trump's tweet above...

Quote:
Any negative polls are fake news, ...

That, combined with his contempt of at least one SC judge, is real reason for concern. It's no wonder one gets the impression that he thinks he's above law and constitution.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Its just a little peek under the mantel of what Trump really thinks of his nation. If he seriously believes that kind of statement will be swallowed whole and believed, he is basically insulting the intelligence of the entire electorate.

I'm almost expecting some of his most vocal opponents to start falling victim to nasty "accidents".

Will there ever be a quiet day in this man's presidency? e.g. Trump visits a biscuit factory and has dinner with local mayor

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

University of California is a public institution, funded with taxpayer money. That is also why President Trump's threat to withhold Federal funds has teeth.

Why not, surely private institutions are totally within their rights to disallow access for whatever reason.

Free speech doesn't mean you have free reign to have a platform wherever you want to speak. It means you can say what you want, but also that you must accept the consequences of your what you say. If the consequences are certain establishments don't want you speaking there, then so be it.

I'm sure even Milo would agree with me on this.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Absolutely but someone will pull him back from the brink on this one, most likely Pence of all people, because at least he's a politician.

As for...

Impeached within 3yrs but he'll walk away from it. I think he'd rather relinquish the Presidency than face all the rigmarole of the proceedings, and someone close to him will find a way for that to happen to preserve the confidence of the people.

So can anyone who wants to study there just go there and study, or do they in fact have a selective entry policy for that too?
