Think you mean effected... perhaps?
No. I meant “affected” as affect is the verb meaning to enact or cause change and “effect” is a noun.

I can't find anything about Trump Derangement Syndrome in the literature, it is a fake syndrome. Not fake however is the Dunning-Kruger effect, which is what you exhibit, this makes you not worth debating, good day sir, to my block list you go.
Good idea.

Nah, you and marton are strong sufferers. First symptom is denial.

The last few hundred pages of this thread are proof enough that TDS exists

OK fair enough, so you admit you were just trolling and spreading lies with no factual basis.
Good night.
You are grasping at straws and deflecting. Why?

BBC is simply a verbose corner of an American echo chamber. Every misinformation or outright lie that comes out of USA media is reprinted in UK and EU almost immediately with no verification. Lazy journalism, if one can call it that.

Only "proof" in the same sense that someone agreeing with you "proves" you are right.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The Trump administration is reportedly planning to freeze the hiring of immigration judges amid a massive backlog of over 800,000 cases due to budgetary constraints. Immigrants now have to wait years for their day in court.

The situation is getting worse as it is claimed numerous immigration judges are leaving their roles or anticipating their exits; citing sweeping changes to the court under Trump administration policies.

According to an immigration judge union leader “The job has become exceedingly more difficult as the court has veered even farther away from being administered as a court.”

Luckily she can count on support from Spanky who has mentioned opioids in seven out of his last three thousand posts

To be fair, your comments are hardly insightful or informative, are they? Churning out repetitive and empty criticism of media you personally don't agree with doesn't exactly need a high degree of critical thought from you, does it? It's basically just random noise.

Illegal immigration and opioid epidemic are connected in more ways than one.

You can do whatever you please. I think most people have put you on (or about to put you on) "ignore".

“Effect” and “affect” can both be used as verbs and both would work in the sentence you wrote but the meaning would be different.

I hope you're not being serious and that this aspect of your personality is an affectation.

We don't prefer echo chambers, we prefer forums where we can discuss - occasionally too passionately, it must be said - the pros and cons of certain issues. If it were to be an echo chamber, I'd have put FMF and Loz on block by now. They sometimes make points that are interesting. You are just boring in your zealotry. You need to be a little more receive than transmit.

This.

Yup. Basically you don't bring anything to the thread. Just self-important noise.

You cut and pasted a couple of lists of unsubstantiated soundbites and criticised a whole media house but don't know anything about it because you don't subscribe to it or watch its news () but that's about it.

I posted factual accomplishments of this administration that could be disputed or discussed rationally. I don't copy-paste anecdotes or editorial opinions of others masquerading as news.
As far as msm are concerned they are in the dying throws (not unlike recording industry in the 1990s). Their owners see temporary reprieve in trolling for eye-balls with any nuisance that they can reprint in order to preserve their revenues. Calling msm the enemy of the people is not that far off the mark. People are very receptive to propaganda spewed out by 'progressive', globalist and neo-Marxist Kulturträgers. There is hardly any balance in the news cycles, it is all leaning heavily one way. The detrimental results of such propaganda are evident in our societies, but hopefully reversible.

Facts cannot be disputed. That's why they are facts. You have posted unsubstantiated opinions (many of which have been debunked earlier in this very thread).
