Straight from the horses mouth.


Turns out the pig is a sociopath, who has no concern for someone seriously injured right in front of him.





Or that seriously injured person's screaming wife.

He turned away in "disgust".


Okay, let me get this straight.

You're telling me that Donald Trump cares about one person, and one person only, and that person is Donald Trump?

Well, to be fair, he cares about what other people think about him.

Rather obsessed with it, actually.

No good at the sight of blood? Well, can't hang him for that.



That's all you got from that?


Yes. Was there something else?

The Steele dossier. . .

Nine months after its first appearance, the set of intelligence reports known as the Steele dossier, one of the most explosive documents in modern political history, is still hanging over Washington, casting a shadow over the Trump administration that has only grown darker as time has gone by.

It was reported this week that the document’s author, former British intelligence official, Christopher Steele, has been interviewed by investigators working for the special counsel on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Senate and House intelligence committees are, meanwhile, asking to see Steele to make up their own mind about his findings. The ranking Democrat on the House committee, Adam Schiff, said that the dossier was “a very important and useful guide to help us figure out what we need to look into”.

If he doesn’t he could be re-elected in 2020. Something ironic in that.

Well, I doubt it but somewhere it was talked about.

Could be not destroying Obama care (not in one swoop, bit by bit like the Libs here do with Medicare) might be what saves him.

Voters are too lazy and too stupid to get past the party propaganda and fluffy bullshit to understand what the politicians really want for themselves.

The want power and they will take it from the people, plain and simple

People don’t think, know they are hurting and vote for populists making promises they can’t keep.

Trump, Hitler, abbott.

Why they voted for the Libs last year has me beat, the most lacklustre campaign about ever I should think. They have a plan for jobs and growth. Nah, they had a plan for more neoconservatism.

The NBN is going to kill new industries/services/applications from being developed here. Tassie should be doing MUCH more, including putting the West Coast on FTTH, rolling out 10Gbps to business premises like the SA govt is doing and capitalising on being the only place in Australia having decent internet everywhere! The car makers have been shut down by the bloody Libs the new high tech/high value jobs are not there!

We are at a stage where we could change course on CO2 emissions and fucking fools are in power trying to make water run uphill, make coal cheaper and cleaner than renewable energy + storage.

Trumpy still trying to kill Obamacare:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/trumps-obamacare-sabotage-is-doing-real-damage-to-american-health-care_us_59e1840be4b04d1d5182082d

Why does the pig want millions of Americans to lose health insurance? Obamacare/Affordable Care Act will survive next year at least but ironically Trumpy is causing more government spending and causing problems to Americans just too wealthy to claim tax credits: they spend at least 20% of their income on health insurance!

Trump is a disaster.
I was appalled when he was accepted as a Republican candidate, and even more appalled when he was sworn in as US President.

I feel like we now all live in an alternate reality, ..very different to the world we were expecting. Shits me that the POTUSA is Trump, and he has been handed so much power. He doesn't live in the real world, and his stupid ego is dangerous. The people of the US MUST do something to rein in this madman.
