  1. MAGAt lies? Say it ain't so! https://www.vox.com/2018/2/13/16466542/trump-h-2b-guest-workers
  2. You really do yourself a disservice with this ridiculous statement.
  3. Because we should all really quickly LOOK OVER THERE!
  4. Aye- it pays to stay on your toes. The key to surviving admin changes is to actually be useful- a clean nose isn't necessarily enough. It is becoming easier now though. There are so few native speakers left that they are more leery about dumping us for spite.
  5. Here is the face of this 'attack on men'. https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2018/02/07/senior-white-house-official-to-resign-after-ex-wives-allegations-of-abuse/#7652
  6. Quite so. I have been at my place for 15 years, and as far off as I still am from retirement I know that as long as I keep my nose clean I won't have too many problems as I ease into old age. It's a different situation for job hoppers however.
  7. Ha! fair point. As I was typing it I thought it sounded a bit overly-dramatic but went on to make some minor edits and let that blow straight through, but the connections between brexit and trump (with all the Russian overlap) are well documented. I used to blame Trump for the mess that the U.S. has become, but now I have realised it is the GOP who should pay for this, and no doubt they will.
  8. With regard to the UK- the same dark forces are at work both in the UK and the US. It just so happens that Trump is providing a lightning rod for them so obviously in the U.S. May is far too weak to attract the proper fascists.
  9. I hope this is not considered off-topic. A fascinating read for those not au-fait with the propaganda machine at play in modern U.S. politics an how complicit the republicans are in protecting and nurturing it. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/02/04/trump-twitter-russians-release-the-memo-216935
  10. You could try having a look on this thread if you haven't seen it Boomer:
  11. I really don't know anything about this as it has always seemed a bit weird to me, and I have avoided that particular rabbit hole. Apparently this same sort of gesture has been observed numerous times from different alt-right players.
  12. Nutella riots after supermarket slashes price by 70 per cent

    Shades of "Perfume"? That's the Froggies for you.
  13. You could always read the thread, but I'm happy to oblige:
  14. "'For certain purposes, of course, that is not true. When we navigate the ocean, or when we predict an eclipse, we often find it convenient to assume that the earth goes round the sun and that the stars are millions upon millions of kilometres away. But what of it? Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant, according as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that? Have you forgotten doublethink?"
