70 people in prison for not paying licence fee fine
. Which is more or less the same as not paying for the licence fee.
But it's not the same. Regardless of the offence that causes it, if you don't pay a court imposed fine, the same will happen dependent on social reports.

So coziness isn't the issue, it's the denial of said coziness that's a problem. Is that what the difference is?


That is the Democrat talking point. I like many others are still waiting for a scintilla of proof demonstrating quid pro where Trump drops sanctions in exchange for Russian help in winning.
Seems to be more of a scintilla of evidence
Quote:
Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) visited CIA headquarters on Monday to view the documents underlying the intelligence community’s unclassified assessment that Russia sought to sway the election in favor of Trump.

At Langley, Cornyn said Tuesday, he viewed “four large binders full of classified information that’s been made available to the committee to conduct” its wide-ranging investigation.

This evidence may only be about the Trump team lying about their Russian contacts or maybe more substantial, we will have to wait and see.

Trump didn't write those Twitter posts all by himself; they do not reflect his opinion, just that of some low-level staffer. There are no grammatical or spelling errors in the tweets and they are written in whole sentences.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

With one hand on the TV remote and one hand tweeting constantly, I am wondering whether he has outsourced the pussy grabbing to a staff member.

Meanwhile in other news, more senior Republican party members have been charged with sexual offences in public restrooms than transgender people.

I'd certainly not let me daughter go to a public restroom in Washington without being accompanied by an armed guard.

Or you could just quote what I said in context with what I wrote in the very next sentence. Or you could just be spurious like the BBC.

Thanks for your insightful contribution.

I'm fascinated by your personal insight into Trump's motives. Also, I'm excited about the first time that Trump has to make a decision about something that could affect his business interests. In the last day or two he tweeted (half-cocked, as usual) about lowering drug prices, with an obvious consequent impact on pharma company stock prices. I'll wager large sums that he'd never speak publicly about tackling the high prices for accommodation in major American cities, or working to drive down hotel rates to promote tourism and business travel.

He didn't visit the school. The school children were part of the first group to tour the White House since Trump became president, and he apparently stopped tweeting long enough to come out and surprise them. The painting is of HRC as First Lady, not some random portrait in a school classroom. Still, nice photo-op.

Trump is an inspiration for people all around the world. He shows us that with perseverance and determination you can achieve your goals no matter how many people try to stop you.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Every president " means well "and makes all sorts of wild promises. But in practice its often the opposite

He's a real estate dealer and speculator and thats how he will stay. He's an inspiration for gullible fools that are simply blinded by his name and wealth and his ( empty ) promises

That statement always fascinated me.
How does one 'grab a pussy' if a woman is fully clothed? I really can't grasp () the logistics involved.
Unless he was just joshing between friends and didn't mean it literally.

Groping doesn't require nudity. Or did you skip the teenage years?
