Investigate me, and I'll investigate you — and the result will likely be gridlock. This is one of the messages US President Donald Trump delivered on Wednesday at a press conference just a few hours after the Democrats took over the US House of Representatives. Read full article

    .................but “will fight back any war-like posture” or say “do as I say but not as I do”.

    It all sounds very much like the tone of a dictatorship to which we have all become quite used to over the years throughout the world.

    Hopefully the voters in the USA will realize the dangers of this situation and ensure that Mr. Trump is voted out of office in 2.020.

    Otherwise they should go getting ready to suffer the consequences..

    Would you have preferred Clinton instead?
    At least Trump has been entertaining.

    A strong competition to Jim Carrey, Steve Martin or perhaps the late Richard Pryor or all bundled into ONE!

    Drump, trying to put a brave face on it but ultimately doomed… It is written. How does a nation of 300 million come up with such a poor leader?
    Another massacre yesterday, the price of ignorance.

    The price of liberty. Got guns? Didn't think so. You are a serf, chattel. Your freedom is at the pleasure of your leaders. In America the citizenry are the guarantors of their own destiny. Losers.

    “In America the citizenry are the guarantors of their own destiny” - and that might mean your kids being murdered at school, festival crowds mown down in hundreds, churchgoers, synagogue worshippers, restaurant goers, all can be mown down in a flash by Yank nutjobs who have legal access to guns.

    Life is great in America, land of the flee (ers). The man from Laramie, Wyatt Earp or Mr Dillon can help.

    Make my day punk…

    Chronic is a great handle, I am guessing it describes a strange brain condition?

    Smuggled AK-47s, throwing acid and knives are the preferred weapons of Europeans in this age. Zero sum game...

    The price of liberty: living shut behind walls in a gated community, keeping your door locked all day, and afraid to walk down the street at night. Worrying that your family will be left on the street if you get cancer. If that's liberty, you can keep it.

    Hmmm. Keeping your door locked all day is a problem? Fascinating. Carry on...

    No, it's another symptom of spending your life living in fear of your fellow citizens. I heard that in the Falklands crime is so low people don't need to lock their doors at all.

    Chronic is a great handle. Chronic disease, chronic fatigue, chronic stupidity... it's always something shitty that won't go away.

    Uh huh, so the Falklands Islanders live in fear of invasion by individuals you support like the despicable Kameradd/Komrade Rique and Cauchito Drink. Anything else?

    Huh? I don't support them, and what are they going to invade with anyway, hot air balloons?

    How's crime in Paraguay?

    “I heard that in the Falklands crime is so low people don't need to lock their doors at all.”

    Don't have to go all the way there for that...
    I haven't locked my doors for years I have no idea where the keys are now...
    I don't lock my car either and often leave a bike on the patio with the keys in I know where they are...

    DT, I lock very little at the ranch. If my neighbors or even a stranger needs something they know that they are welcome to use it if someone isn't available to help or serve them. At night few stray off the roadways. I've got insurance too.

    If you attempt a slaughter or to rob someone in a public place locally - you'll get massacred. A large % have ccl and many of the others have firearms in their vehicle.

    America has more guns than people. Considering this fact its amazing that shootings are percentage wise as infrequent as they are.

    “How's crime in Paraguay?”

    You'll have to do your own legwork on that...

    You live in the middle of nowhere, right? What about when you're in America, do you lock your doors there?

    I think that's the first honest thing I've ever seen you post on here, so thanks, I guess.

    Where do you really live?

    @ Delirium
    Now that is funny. Maybe you should ask Gauchito Drink what data he has on me. Kamerad/Komrade Rique is always challenging folks to reveal their real name or where they live. As I have always stated, I reside at the secret Paraguayan base on claimed Argentine territory. By all means, disprove my claim... ;)

    Well that's all very dull. I'll have to remember not to bother asking you anything about Paraguay in future. It's a shame, it's an interesting country with a very unfortunate history and I would have liked to talk to someone who lives there.

    The reality is, I have no interest in informing you of anything. You have made your proclivities clear, and there is no other path. ;)

    There are many paths up the mountain, imoyaro. But it sounds like you prefer to stay in your comfortable bubble, pretending to oppose fascism while avoiding confronting the real thing.
