This sham of an impeachment drive is the culmination of a three year long screeching hissy fit by Democrats and thier media cohorts in the wake the crushing loss in 2016 by thier former darling Hillary Clinton, who was exposed as the corrupt, lying elite she's always been.
This unconscionable effort to overthrow the president who has brought jobs and food on the table to the poor worker will not go down well with the electorate.
Elitist Democrat leadership and thier media goons have absolutely no sincerity or concern for the working class at all, which is why voters turned their backs on them in 2016 and will do so again in 2020.

This is an absolute disgrace.
In my opinion, this is where US Republicans in particular are really off the mark. They are so averse to anything that remotely resembles socialism or big government that they allow situations like this to occur. I suspect also that many of them and thier Democrat colleagues are funded by big pharma. Throw these people out of office.

The Palestinians shouldn't have to receive any US aid. Thier mega rich Arab neighbours ought to have plenty to support them with. Shame on them for not doing more to help thier Palestinian brothers.

The Palestinian's Islamic 'brothers' in the ME, if they were concerned enough, could help by threatening to withhold oil supplies to Israel and the West until a fair settlement is accepted by Israel. 'No settlement, no oil!' But they won't.

Ideally, I prefer freedom of the individual to decide what we consume rather than nanny state government regulation. But this depends on us and whether we abuse our freedoms or not.
People in the US have more personal freedom but the nation is suffering a debilitating opioid and drug crisis. The situation is similar in my country.
Nations like Japan and Singapore are very strict and have very few such problems.
I don't know what the legal solution to the West is, but whatever Japan and Singapore are doing seems to work well for them and they ought to keep it up. Many lives will continue to be saved.

Good. Let President Trump, the Israelis and the rest of the world know in no uncertain terms that they will not be insulted by the sham of a proposal and that only a complete withdrawal to pre 1967 borders, sovereignty with East Jerusalem as capital, right of return and repatriations by Israel will suffice.

I'd hate to be a government official who had to decide what to do about this. It's a very tricky situation.
Anyway, I hope and pray they'll act wisely, both here and in China, to contain the spread.

The only viable peace plan is already backed by the international community in the boundaries set in 1967 before Israel took over Gaza and the West Bank.

According to your interpretation which means pretty much nothing here.
I'm not interpreting anything. I just quoted what Jesus said. Anyway, how can anyone interpret 'Love thy neighbor as thyself' as condoning land grabbing, oppression and murder?
This is why people like yourself should be in favour of keeping religion out of politics.
That would mean that irreligious people can voice an opinion according to thier conscience but religious people can't, which would be discriminatory.
In a democracy we all have the power to outvote bad ideas regardless of either religious or secular origin or reasoning.
Ps: I understand the wariness towards religious people, considering the poor behavior of some highlighted here. But calling for thier exclusion from public debate is not fair. We don't call for the exclusion of atheists due to the behavior of Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and Pol Pot, do we?

If Trump truly wanted to solve this problem and if he actually had any real power, all he would have to do is to block all aid to Israel until they returned to the 1967 border and started respecting international law. That's it, problem solved.
Great idea which I would support.
But it won't work because the Israelis would rather die than cede land and power, because they erroneously think they have a divine right to the 'Promised Land'.
The only thing that will remove them from occupied territories is military force, which is not a good solution.

Trump's evangelical advisors who egg him on to back Israel are dead wrong on this issue.
Says Jesus, whom those evangelicals supposedly follow. Jesus said 'Love thy neighbor', not brutally oppress them, steal thier land etc.

Trump's evangelical advisors who egg him on to back Israel are dead wrong on this issue. Jesus himself, whom they supposedly follow, would never support the Israelis brutal occupation and oppressive treatment of the Palestinians.

President Trump is way off track on this issue. While I'm sure there's sincerety in his attempt he's biased towards Israel, no doubt influenced by his many Jewish relatives and friends as well as theologically misguided Christian advisors.
This proposal is another slap in the face to the Palestinians and so of course they rightly rejected it.
Israel will never concede enough land or power to reach a reasonable settlement. They have absolutely no intention whatsoever of doing so. Any 'peace plans' they propose are only fakes designed to prompt rejection and then to blame the Palestinians for 'not being willing to negotiate', blah blah blah. Thus the status quo is prolonged and they continue further land grabbing, annexing, etc.
May God have mercy on the poor Palestinians.

While at the same time, one of the Australian Open's main sponsors is Emirates, the flagship airline of the UAE. A country which heavily suppresses LGBTQIA+ rights.
Exactly. Why hasn't Tennis Australia severed ties with Emirates Airlines and publicly denounced them? -Sponsorship.
And what about the various Chinese sponsors? Gay marriage is illegal there and the LGBTQ community faces discrimination. -Too much money at stake.
The real bigots and discriminators here have been the media, Tennis Australia and some former players.
If we exclude and ridicule everyone who's views differ to ours, as the media, Tennis Australia and some former players have done to Margaret Court, there won't be anyone left. How about tolerating differing views and accepting everyone regardless of their views on social issues?
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
The media, Tennis Australia's and some former tennis player's treatment of Margaret Court has been nothing short of a hypocritical disgrace. They've been hammering her left and right with one side of the mouth while tepidly 'celebrating' her with the other. Why? Because she 'hurt people' because of her views.
What about the many match umpires John McEnroe (who loudly ridiculed Court) berated and hurt with his regular tirades against them?
What about the match umpires and lines-women who Serena Williams hurt by berating them?
Margaret Court's bashers of her religious views have also conveniently left out that her religion also inspired her to found one of the largest stand alone food distribution centers for the homeless in Perth, Western Australia. I wonder how many of her critics have spent any time feeding the homeless lately?
Then there is Tennis Australia's ridiculously hypocritical stance of sidelining Margaret Court because they are 'inclusive'. Right....inclusive of everyone who doesn't have PC views. By the way, her views on gay marriage were shared by 40% of the Australian public at the same sex marriage referendum, which would include I assume some Australian players and some of Tennis Australia's own staff. What is Tennis Australia going to do? Bar those players from playing, sack those staff members and refuse those fans entry?
The public is getting sick of these PC bible bashing moralisers.

Are you sure medical bills are covered for the previously struggling?
Previously unemployed now have greater means to access medical care.
President Trump has his faults, but creating jobs and helping the previously unemployed eat and pay the bills is something he ought to be credited and re-elected for.

"I just think we have to win. I don't think we can afford another four years by the current incumbent,"
Cannot afford another four years of record employment? Cannot afford four more years of food on the table, heating and medical bills covered for the previously struggling?

How sad these ever growing first world problems. It shows that living in an advanced country with comparatively high living standards doesn't grant immunity from depression and dependacy, but rather seems to produce more of it.
No matter how much we have materially, our inner needs for love, peace and understanding must also be met. In my opinion these are met by having strong relationships with family and community. Religion, not the self righteous 'I'm better than you' kind, but rather humble faith that serves the needs and interests of others kind, also helps a lot.

Not yet. Hand to hand cash transactions are still mostly allowed. But the day is coming.
Just as Big Tech, which dominates the flow of information, seeks to dictate what can and cannot be said, those who control the flow of money will seek to dictate how it can and cannot be spent. An unfortunate reality. Those of us who dissent from 'normal' thinking better prepare.

Bernie is not liked by Hillary, the Dem's establishment and other elitists because he is sincere and does actually care about the people. As much as I disagree with some of his policies, he is the best of the Dems. No chance of defeating Trump though.

No hand to hand cash transactions means that the banks/govts will track our every cent spent, which means monitoring, which means control, which means dictatorship. Get ready. God help those who think differently than the elites.
