There’s a lot of things happening of interest around the world, from the Brexit split between the United Kingdom and the European Union to Donald Trump’s young presidency in the United States, from the civil war in Syria and the associated surrounding Middle East mess, to growing tensions around North Korea and China.

        c’s probably going to be unimpressed as well❗️ The day’s not off to an auspicious start.

        Americans must be starting to wonder if the Senate serves any useful purpose.

          I’ve ababdoned trying to get my head around what it is they’re trying to change & what’s wrong with changes they want to make. The article made it appear Trump’s vacillated anout it in tne past.

          I shudder to think what their health system – if you can call it that – is really like, from state to state. A bunch of executives, shareholders, middlemen & assorted hangers-on sharks, all clipping the ticket at various points along the way, is the picture I have had. Strikes me as an inherently inefficient & unfair system.

    • It’s the weekend. She probably has a life in London.

      Her contributions are always welcome but it’s a gift of her time, not a commitment.

        I’m really just wanting her to look after those ankles.

          I thought you were wanting to look aftet them, Sir Gerald?

            Sounds a bit, sort of, well – smutty, Sir Alan. Firm believer in always aiming higher in life.

              Certainly not averse to the botty.

        • Partialism much 😉

            You’re taken. I’m not risking hacking off the brute you hooked up with.

  2. Trump doesn’t want states to keep voter data confidential?

      Canvassed tbis yesterday. The Republicans want to check for illegal voters. Democrat States don’t want to.
