Or do you disagree?

In my experience they (Slavic ladies) use far too much Fennel in their cuisine; maybe I meet the wrong ones?

Nobody eats/grows it back home. The first time I noticed it was in the US, it was bewildering to find that weird tasting thing in a red pasta sauce.

But you are so clever for finding Slavic ladies with such healthy habits!

Ok, I gotta stop. Hahahahah.

Trump. Back to Trump-ists.

Ok ok. I still think marrying Trump is not smart but whatever.
One of my closest friends would agree with Tom on the very intelligent and hot remarks, then add (his words, not mine) "tend to be multi-lingual and aren't as bat shit mental as Russian girls."

I read the GQ interview/photo shoot with Melania earlier, and way back then, 16yrs ago, she was talking about one day being First Lady. Looks like the PE had a very definite plan.

Warning: If semi-nudity bothers you, please don't click on the link. Personally, I think she looks great and isn't showing too much at all.

Quote:
Enter high-spirited Donald Trump to show us how it's done. The billionaire New York property magnate, Reform Party presidential candidate and proud owner of this custom-fitted 727 (even the seat buckles are 18-carat gold) is an expert in the art of in-flight entertainment. And his personal hostess, 26-year-old Slovenian supermodel Melania Knauss, might just end up as the next First Lady. Flight of fancy? Not if The Donald has his way.

Heavyweight political commentators may scoff, but the delectable Miss Knauss is relishing the prospect of a future pressing the flesh on state occasions. "I will put all my effort into it, and I will support my man," she said recently.

"She's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman," says Trump with uncharacteristic understatement. And who are we to disagree? Not only does she manage to keep a man fabled for his erections (the latest is the Trump World Tower on New York's First Avenue) on the right flight path, but she's also fluent in four languages. Very handy for those summit meetings.

"I'm going to do everything I can do see that regular Americans can fly as high as their wings will take them," says Trump. He's got our vote.

That would be Italians, but as my wife is both, hard to say.

None of my slavic relatives use fennel much.

3/4 of mine are slavic.

They're also brought up with the old school Eastern European ideas "Let the man be the man" kind of thing, very appealing to Alfa males....
None of my relatives buy into that.

Ha ha, good for them. Neither mine, but we like a bit of self-deprecating humour back there.
It's a thing of past, for sure. Grandmothers did, not all of them though. Even those that did buy into this - were the strongest part in the family.

I didn't - thanks. And I wrote tea party (no capitals) and edited to 'type'

If you are saying that 'tea party type' Republicans generally do not portray very conservative pro-life and often creationist views - despite many of them actually not being Christian at all (as in having no Faith, only 'views') - then, ah well, you are defo deluded and really naïve to boot.

Oft heard 'I am not religious and not a believer, but to save our culture we have to support our Christian Church and way of life, or the Muslims will take over (heard this 100s of times in the UK too btw). The concept of the 'cultural Jew' has long been a reality. that of the 'cultural Christian' is just as relevant and prevalent today. Deny it if you wish, no skin off my nose.

Seems that in the US "Campaign Talk" is anyway not actually any sort of commitment.
And hasn't for a long time.

According to Google, 175,000 coal related jobs in the US. Half of them are actual miners.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

You snooze you lose. If you wanna score some points before official meet and greet, that's the way to go ...

Nigel Farage has become the first British politician to meet Donald Trump since he became US president-elect.

Analysis
By Iain Watson, political correspondent

UKIP sources told me that Nigel Farage has made the prime minister look "very foolish". And on the surface it is embarrassing.
Theresa May will not be meeting the president-elect until next year - yet a UK opposition politician has already popped in for a chat.

Yeah, makes it easier than having to find all those loopholes so he can avoid paying for 20 years. Just get rid of the taxes altogether!

Although coal gets the most attention there are plenty of other "dirty" industries that would prefer looser environmental regulations. The oil industry is a big one.

The proposed Keystone pipeline will eventually cross 10 states - and 9 of the 10 voted for Trump.
