I am a fan of the British TV prime minister, and i think that the writers nailed govt. A funny episode was about the Chunnel and another was about the EU and Brussels et al. Funny but it rings true even today. I have the DVDs and I watch it
'Yes Minister' and 'Yes Prime Minister' were more of a slight on the senior civil servants and their skulduggery (conniving sods!) than on the government, bradmaster. Maggie T tried to prove she had a sense of humour by watching it.
Yes, Threatening to blow up the White House would certainly make some like Madonna feel empowered. Very few have even said exactly what it is they are protesting. The sky is really not falling like they believe it is.
When that many people register protest based on the depth and breath, sheer magnitude, I would say that is anything but inconsequential. The current occupant of the White House needs to be listening as to the concerns behind the March.
By the time you accept that yes, the sky really is falling, we should be well into Nuclear Winter...
I found the protests interesting in the regard that they were not protesting for a seat at the table discussing such issues but rather that Trump's seat be taken from him. A total negative proposition rather than a positive one.
Lisa Vollrath - At last, a specific thing to worry about. Thanks for letting us know. I thought it might be something as important as free birth control that was the big issue.
What specifically are they empowered about? Listening to Madonna and Judd it was not clear. And once again what were they doing for the last 8 years. Those years were Obama's not Trump. So whats up. In Los Angeles they riot when their team wins?
It was funded by Soros, so I heard.
Lisa - Trump might be more defensive than previous Presidents, but at least he's trying to help America. It's about jobs, security, and ending the divides from Identity politics - the rest are just talking points for the news media
I agree with most of what you say, especially in light of his final Supreme Court nominees. I will add that many people believe he was elected more by Russians and U.S. billionaires than through a democratic process. That's part of their frustration.
I am sorry Rosheda but explain to me why the Judd and Madonna speeches are not within the definition of "objectifying" men. The radical feminists can objectify me and degrade me and call me vile names and use the Fword on me but a man cannot?
Eric, no one was listening to Madonna. We were already trying to march, though crowd size made it difficult. We weren't there for celebs whose wealth will protect them from POTUS, but for the vulnerable he is already going after through EO after EO.
Scott, while the Russians played a part in bringing information to light, I don't know if it is true that they affected the actual results. Can we say that if not for leaks Clinton would be President? Though, there may be new info !
Jill your position is admirable.. I appreciate your position. It is very good to learn more about it. The ladies in my life and I sent in bucks to support fine women like you. Many of my friends marched and that makes me happy. WomenandMenareFriends.
Eric, this may be a 2nd comment! Radicals donot represent the majority of feminists. Objectification is wrong for ALL. Imagine that one of the speakers you are so incensed at was elected as your president. That is exactly what the women marching did!
"Oh, what tangled webs we weave..." Who's conned by whom? Obama was a lawyer, a potential 'ambulance chaser'.
Trump is a name and a verb. He's trumped Hilary C. Supporters who felt duped should have turned over the packet to read the instructions
Trump emergency instructions in the case of extreme disappointment for voting for him: Take 2 aspirin & a shot of Tequila (before it gets expensive) - then go to sleep. Wake up in 4 years when you can fix it. Don't watch the news. Trump is truth.
Sorry lady. In France, drinks like Champagne are regional and protected by a copyright deal. Tequila Mexico was awesome back in the 70's but had no such protection and that was nafarious I think Portello made about 14 million$ off of it.
First I have heard of this. What 8 men and what did they do?
Here is the link. Please do your homework next time. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4003648202...
A picture of 8 men with nothing about what is being signed? That is what you call doing your homework? Next time you comment on something try providing the link so everyone knows what the heck you are talking about.
NMLady there is a serious disconnect here. Now Facebook is accurate reporting with no facts? Please explain what about that photo makes what that person is saying true. That was a signing of a different issue altogether. Who could make this up?
You guys need to read the news!
May I say Jill that your notion of news is a throwback. When you say read the news do you mean. The latest Dan Rather or factually based articles written after the truth surfaces? Are you talking soundbite stuff or facts? Do you know?
I believe NMLady is referring to this:
Which is the executive order he signed on abortion last week.
It's the attitude that brought down Obama, isn't it. He even tried to tell us in the UK how to vote in the Referendum last year. Now there's a laugh.
I don't recall him 'telling' you anything. It was a suggestion and he never implied that the decision did not ultimately belong to the English. But speaking of Hitler, why spend so much time propping up Trump, whose problematic nature is being reveal
Credence, What attitude, Trump says he wants to make America Great Again, give him the 100 days and judge him on the merits, not on MSM innuendo. Roe v Wade has been around since 1974 what has changed, and how did Trump change anything? What Rights?
Brad. He has been in for not even a week, and it is more than mere rumor that the GOP would like to get this overturned. He has shown his intent. and direction of his administration over the last 48 hours, we don't Need 100 days.
No woman who is not a financially dependent of a man agrees with The Baron of BS. The only ones who do are as mentally deranged as he is.
Just when was America great? Was it when my people were being murdered?Perhaps when white Americans were getting affordable home loans after WWII and people of color were being red-lined? What a sickening slogan that has nothing to do with reality.
It's 'BrExit' Joaquin. As in getting out, like Don's fed up of the US stumping up the billions to keep NATO going. We're on our way out of the EU to stop Sterling haemorrhaging, in donations to countries (like India) rich enough to pay us back. .
Ronnie please do not become offended. I kind of grew up with two large tribes in my life. Love em, Hopi and Navajo. To my understanding someone speaking about elders like you do would be set aside from the tribe and banished. No free speech. correct?
First of all, the Indigenous are not monolithic. Furthermore , I am not speaking about my elders. Dead miscreants and slave-owners are not my elders, neither are their progeny. My "tribe" has come to take it all back. U will not love us.
Good luck with that mission Ronnie.
WB is one of our cryptic, know-it-all mystics on HP, ha! How would it defy the Law of Gravity - has nothing to do with pain. It defys the Law of Attraction & we can change things. WB & Trump supporters seem to be on the same side: war PLEASE!
Catherine as always you made me think. Dangerous? When we argue left and right and up and down we argue and in opposing discourse we find a better way. Some however must find an antagonistic way no matter what. They like imaginary causes, no solution
I am definitely solution-driven. I hate all the fighting, and we do so much better when we collaborate across any isle. Even GOP & Dems have successfully collaborated in the past, but 'the people' don't hold them to do it. We should.
Every day I am offended when I wake up and realize I am still here. Missy, U have potential, and would go far under my tutelage. OldPool, It is clear that UR a human being.Human beings will be welcome in our world. U will receive 40 acres and a mule.
Whoa Ronnie that is the second time that I remember you saying something suicidal. Are you alright?Bummed out about waking up to who you are is not good. E-Mail me.
Nice try Eric. I am also familiar with that technique. Offer to help someone while insulting them at the same time! I am perfectly comfortable with who I am. It is the evil world I am living in that is the problem.
OK buddy I misconstrued " I am offended when I wake up and realize I am still here" my bad you are not suicidal when saying that. You do not know Hopi or Navajo world of the Dine'e good for you. speak for your tribe - what is it?
I know exactly how you feel, WB - I wake up every morning not wanting to be here, too (long before Trump came along). This world is intolerable across the board. The reason I stay is bcuz ending things sounds boring & potential IS everywhere.
You still lose...
You said it best. They dont want a seat at the table. They want everyone else to give in to their demands.
The greatest bigots are the ones that maintain THEY speak for all and will listen to no-one. It's how Hitler came to power: I know best, you do as I say and you'll be safe. Otherwise...
The mentally ill live in the worlds "they" create. But, that's never enough. They must have control of others. Buy into that and you become as mentally ill as they are.
Once again, you've described & condemned these protestors forgetting the right-wing protests after Obama was elected. Its okay for you, but its not okay for us. You didn't hear about all the littering then bcuz we knew you were mad & understo
Being radical isn't enough. Fear of the unknown feeds the imagination - as back in the Middle Ages the clergy dreamed up dragons to usher people into church - enough to convince them that the world will end if a Democrat isn't in the White House.
Exactly Mr. Lancaster. I think that fear was why hillary did not win. She is the modern day Dragon Lady
The right wing in the US has one and only one agenda: To control the rest of us any way they can. But, here is the problem. They live in the poorest states and rely on progressive states federal funding. What happens when states withdraw funding?
