So if I'm understanding this, your rebuttal to my point that the US looks like a failed state is to say I'm crazy and Scotland is full of alcoholic nazis?

I'm err not really sure where to go with that.
Just accept you won the point and move on.

Meanwhile today

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of the United States Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel.
Our beautiful embassy stands as a proud reminder of our strong relationship with Israel and of the importance of keeping a promise and standing for the truth.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". This one looks like an auto repair shop in a run down mall!
Maybe after Trump builds his wall he will build a proper Embassy building in Jerusalem?

Trump did commit to fix this problem

North America continues to experience the highest drug-related mortality rate in the world, accounting for 1-in-4 drug-related deaths globally.

You labelled Scotland as a ‘failed state’. Are you sure you’ve got the definition nailed down yourself?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

“I love that,” Trump said, according to Woodward’s account. “That’s what I am, a popularist.”

Woodward completes the scene:

“‘No, no,’ Bannon said. ‘It’s populist.’

“‘Yeah, yeah,’ Trump insisted. ‘A popularist.’”

You are marton’s alter ego, aren’t you? Either that or your sarcasm detector has failed. I’m going with the former.

If you don't know, you don't know. You don't need to make some flakey pop-analysis about who I am, then try to pass off your post as sarcasm.

Just Wiki "failed state". Maybe have a quick look at "alter ego" while you're at it...

Ueli Maurer visited the White House today. Maybe, with his name, Daft Donald thought he was going to build the wall for him.

I trust you're aware of the reasons given by Bush et al for the invasion or Iraq.

Certainly you know none of those alleged WMD's have been found.






That should come as no surprise, they're all in Iran now.

Well, if the USA isn't a failed state yet, Alabama certainly is.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

LOL. This thread is funny. How do you know if you have TDS?
Well, calling the U.S a failed state despite the lowest unemployment rate in five decades and.....and...wait for it.......wages are on the rise for the first time in ten years. Yup, failed state for sure.

The recent gains are going to those who need it most. Over the past year, low-wage workers have experienced the fastest pay increases, a shift from earlier in the recovery, when wage growth was concentrated at the top.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/02/b...h-economy.html






Of course, there are some pockets of this so-called failed state. Mostly in "progressive" neo liberal cities like Seattle, Portland, SF and L.A just to name a few.
