Joyce is still around, Aussie.  He won that byelection if you recall.

Anyway, there is so much red ink up there that I might give it a rest on a Saturday afternoon and not argue any further.  Let's agree to disagree over the weekend, and we can have another chat on Monday if you're available.

It has been good to argue different points of view so politely today. 
Have a good weekend.

Nope we don't make cars here, but we are being trusted to make Australia's Armoured Vehicles unlike you victorian losers  Grin Grin Grin Grin



Political interference has marred the contest somewhat with both Queensland and Victorian State Governments fiercely advocating for what they see as their rightful spoils, indeed the strap at the bottom of the ABC's live feed from the announcement stated "Queensland wins $5 billion defence contract over Vic".

Maybe they heard about your useless car builders and decided QLD was a much better state to manufacture military equipment.

Trump has had a great week. What are you talking about Sad?


If all you watch is Fox News, I can understand why you'd think that. 

But take some time to look outside the bubble and you'll be reminded that Trump's supporters, when calling for him to get the Nobel Peace prize, like yourself, were saying it was a done deal, he'd brought peace to the region despite not even having a meeting.

Now, because of his own team deliberatly undermining him in favour of war, he's failed at bringing peace to the region and not only that, North Korea, now legitimised by his capitulation and offering them a seat at the table, think they can foolishly, and are, making nuclear threats against the US and South Korea if the US doesn't pull out it's military forces from the region.

Now Trump has to deal with that.  Back down against North Korea's threats or call their bluff.  It's lose lose for everyone, AND this is a situation entire created by Trump's actions.

Entirely.

He was warned, he ignored it and went with his gut, and now it's turned to poo.

As it was established at the time, if Trump gets credit for all the positives in this area when he's done little to nothing, then he's also responsible for this deterioration in relations and a clear departure from a pathway to peace that is entire of he and his teams doing.

He failed, and big time.

And that's just a single example.  This is without delving into the recent China decision... Remember his claims of MAGA?  Attacking China for 60k factories going to China, 6million+ jobs, yet now Trump announces that he was using all the powers of the U.S. government to save a Chinese company from closing and losing 75,000 jobs.

Wtf!?

Do I really need to continue?  How do you not know all of this?

The spying on the Trump campaign has been exposed and the Democrats are busy trying to spin the narrative in their media. Its not working!


Again, those in the bubble who only consume Fox News, you are correct.

But here is a dose of reality for you.

The claim is that the FBI planted a spy in the Trump campaign.

The truth is, this is just what the FBI does for a living.  Trump has ties to the American mob, the Russian Mob, Russian Hookers, to the Kremlin, to indicted co-conspirators, goons and shady lawyers, tax evaders, fraudulent businesses,  fake charities, bribes and hush money...  This is exactly what the FBI investigates.

Given that Trump has all these ties, in what world would be not be investigated?  It's not a claim of spying, the FBI are doing their damn job, investigating criminal activity...

Now you want to claim it's a deep state conspiracy that's now been exaggerated to 100's of spies?!  There aren't even that many staff on his campaign payroll...

Do you really listen to the claims your side makes, coincidentally, when Trump is facing one of his biggest and most public failures? 

Do you ever stop and seek out the evidence behind the claims?

Clearly you don't.  All it takes is Fox News, a Facebook/Twitter/4chan/reddit post saying what you want to hear and your investigative quest stops there.

Trump now holds a lead in the polls moving toward the midterms. My prediction is that the Republicans will buck the usual losses that an incumbent party suffers at the midterm and win handsomely.


If enough people are as ignorant to the truth and gullible as you, you're probably right.

Quote:
After all what policy do the Dems have? More taxes (that's a winner), open borders and impeach Trump.


That's a good question, we'll have to wait for them to reveal their hand.

But on that topic, what are Trump's policies? 

War in Iran, War in North Korea, Taking money from China to his personal businesses that he's not taken a step back from and aren't being run from a blind trust in return for dropped sactions and "MCGA" campaign of Jobs for China without a thought to the reason the sanctions were in place to begin with now that he's got his pay day?

This is the most recent in a long line of corrupt displays from Trump, his family and his administration, but do you hear it getting reported about on Fox News?

No.  It got a mention, but it was spun as a positive.

No, just no...

Again, take my advice, shut up and wait for things to calm down.  You're only backing yourself into a corner by pretending Trump's had a good week.

It's ok to have a bad one, but keeping you head firmly buried in the sand is only making you look foolish.

Are not at least two of the contested seats, (not Perth or Fremantle) currently help by Labor?


Yes, Braddon in which the ALP have a margin of 4.78%.  No-one is seriously suggesting the Libs can take it.  Longman, ALP held by a very slim 0.08%.  Libs will fancy their chances there and will concentrate many resources.
 
Quote:
History tells us that oppositions almost always win byelections so Labor doesn't have much to lose in reality, but the Libs don't expect to win Labor seats in July, and they should still have the majority.  Maybe I am not understanding your meaning properly.  Do you mean loss of reputation?


I mean in a political sense.

Quote:
I don't think that Bill Shorten has much of a reputation left after his rolled-gold stuffup, but I'll guess that Labor will win all the seats contested and the Libs will come out of it with the same one-seat majority.


His alleged 'rolled gold stuff up' is not as embarrassing as that of QC Turnbull who told us what the High Court would find in Joyce's case.

Who will ever forget.....'And the High Court will so hold.'

Should that not depend on DNA evidence?  It's quite in fashion for criminal courts nowdays, or at least it was until lately.

Spot on!!!!

The #Anti-TrumpTurds have nothing.......everything they try FAILS.....

Worse yet, President Trump is growing in popularity, but they will fan their bought & paid for polls.....polls taken by the MSM, & they will say: look....he's not any more popular, but they fail to look in the mirror.......his numbers in those polls don't reflect how bad they....the democ-rats.....are doing....President Trumps popularity "numbers don't have to rise when their own numbers are falling.......they fail to grasp the concept that runners don't always win the race because they are faster, no, they also win the race when their competitor's run out of steam & falter, like the democ-rats are doing as you pinpoint so well.....their winners are higher taxes, open borders, & an attempted Presidential coup d'état that has been caught out, & I'll add that Americans on both sides of the political spectrum don't like their Constitution being ragged on by the "Deep-State" or anyone else....especially politicians looking to pander to their own democ-rat millennial miscreants, that neither side likes. Polls show that push come to shove, both sides of the firearm issue don't like it when these mealy-mouthed politicians start to attack their Constitution with threats of repealing American Rights. They are smart enough to know that if one freedom goes, others will probably follow, & if the one that protects the rest .... the 2nd Amendment goes asunder.....all hell will break loose, & they don't want any of that.  Wink

Their 'head in the clouds'.... 'we can't lose attitude' .....bit them in the ass in 2016, & it will again in 2018. The slow runner behind may not look fast, that is until they themselves stumble & falter....the taste of The Donald's dust will taste even worse this time!!  Wink
