  1. The remedy of impeachment was designed to create a last-resort mechanism for preserving Americas constitutional system. It operates by removing executive-branch officials who have so abused power through what the framers called “high crimes and misdemeanors” that they cannot be trusted to continue in office. Trump needs to be impeached as should have his predecessor. Both are guilty of abuse of presidential power. If Republicans, who portray themselves as the standard bearer want to be taken serious about maintaining the integrity of the American government, they themselves should be leading the calls for Trumps impeachment
  2. Is it so surprising when the officials undertake drainage programs and only manage to construct huge mozzie breeding grounds. The acts of stupidity one sees beggars disbelief
  3. FACT from someone who knows- R&R in Thailand, "There was nothing that wasn't for sale or any act classed as being despicable in providing for R&R grunts fresh from Vietnam along Petchaburi Road, their every concievable wish was catered for. During the R&R Days there were plenty of good cheap hotels and certainly no shortage of brothels. The kind where sometimes up to one hundred girls dressed in their evening gowns sit behind a soundproof glass window in plush surroundings watching TV, chatting with their mates, reading magazines and waiting for their number to be called ( The Nightspot, ABC Room, Bali Bar and Thai Heaven). A 24 hour prostitute would cost around 400 - 500 Baht $A20-25, with an option to extend. Beers cost around 20 baht or $A1.00 which was damned expensive! It provided about 7% of Thailands GDP. And still does!!!!
  4. Would that be the same default as French insurers after WW2
  5. Change the headlines and to garner support to prop up his diminishing base
  6. Adults in the room- you must be excluding most of Trumps cabinet- surely
  7. Not entirely sure "being ready" is in the genetic make up
  8. RIP Larrikin-a bloke who truly loved his country and wasn't changed by the top job. He also had the ability of sinking a yard glass of beer in under 12 seconds.
