    From what I heard on the radio this morning unless DJR Penske is able to homologate the Mustang and some large car appears in the Holden line up (possibly the Camaro, who knows), there isn't really one. The Gen-2 rules are being written up but it's all academic with no cars.
    The Old Republic was a stupidly run organisation which deserved to be taken over. All Hail Palpatine!

    Those were the rules and people should have known that. It doesn't make the result wrong, it makes the rules wrong.

    I'm not really sure how to start this up again , or , indeed if I should , but , having stated that , I'll just ask if the American people still have faith in their president ?
    I watched some of that funeral today , and it sounds like a good person was lost for no good reason .

    I'm reminded of a line in a song by a group called "Jaluka"(I think) that says "We are all scatterlings of Africa , each uprooted one ." .

    Maybe it would be better if we were all identical .

    I wonder why the Pres is the one to blame for a local outbreak of violence between the alt-left and alt-right. Maybe it's because the Pres is a convenient scapegoat for anything that goes wrong, just like Obama used to get blamed for the things he had nothing to do with.

    It doesn't matter if he is or not. But he's handled it incredibly badly.

    The most amazing thing I have learned from Trump's electoral campaign is that scandals, bad news, and lots of negative coverage is actually better than no media coverage at all. The mainstream media wanted to sink Trump just as much as both of the American parties wanted to (including his own). But all those juicy Trump scandals and outrageous speeches meant higher ratings for TV channels and lots of clicks for web news. And after all, who could have thought that getting so much negative media coverage will only prop up the guy enough to beat every republican opponent and even Hillary Clinton. It's the paradox of our time. Conclusion: if you want to do something to hurt Trump's presidency just stop covering him at all.

    The president was on a busy schedule on his China trip, probably holding extremely important talks on how to avoid a war, possibly a nuclear war, when all of this shit storm suddenly hit the fan. I can see how he could how made a statement that rubbed most people the wrong way in the middle of those circumstances for not being informed well enough. But the things he said when he came back to the US only made things worse. But then again, as I noted in my previous post, we live in the strange world where negative coverage can prop up a politician like Trump instead of sinking him.

    Trump's approval rating has basically gone nowhere ever.
    He's been bouncing along in the mid to high 30s since the beginning of "this American Carnage".

    In theory, the Republicans should be able to pass whatever legislation it wants to because they control all the levers of government and all the three rings in the circus but they haven't been able to to achieve a legislative agenda, because it appears as though they don't really have one.
    Trump equally doesn't seem to have a legislative agenda either. He just wants the credit for signing off on the bits of paper.
    The Old Republic was a stupidly run organisation which deserved to be taken over. All Hail Palpatine!
