Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court OKs partial implementation of Trump's travel ban See in context

if people from those countries can prove they have legitimate ties to being in the US then the ban isnt going to apply. It has been shown that many other countries terrorist have been citizens or permanent residents of those countries, they travel to the middle east to get training and come back to commit their attacks. How is Trumps travel ban going to stop these people. SCOTUS has just stated these people wont be effected and its impossible for US intelligence agencies to keep track of every bodies movements. Trumps muslim ban has more holes than a sieve.

it seems ridiculous that in this day and age they dont have collusion detection equipment installed, they got them in planes and some new cars, why not large ships and $100s million naval vessels!?!

It's a fact, well know for years now, that technical colleges on the whole, place more graduates into the work force than the universities. exactly, I attended technical college for one year then used that credit to upgrade to the Uni course. I learned more and enjoyed the technical college far more than the 1.5yrs I spent at Uni, eventually dropping out from boredom and to start a fulltime job. One thing I now regret was not completing the technical college diploma (architectural studies), taught by professionals that actually work and have hands on experience in the fields they teach. ironically I now work in a field totally unrelated to Architecture but I still wish I completed the tech college diploma.

The wall? Its being built as we speak i think your mistaking a wall with a fence, most of the fence was a left over of the Obama presidency. Trumps got a long way to go if hes going to build his solar wall and to think Mexico will pay for it is just laughable.

Posted in: Trump's new idea -- a 'solar wall' on Mexican border See in context

Trump can come up with the idea and how or whether it's functional will depend on what the engineers think, NOT Trump.  actually itll be the engineers to see if it economically viable and whether congress will provide the funding. the big IF is whether Mexico will actually pay for it. If somehow the US forces Mexico to pay for it then Im sure Mexico will demand to own it also. Im guessing that Mexico paying for the wall will have as much chance of the Muslim ban keeping the terrorist out.

considering the sun rises in the east, sets in the west, the walls surfaces will be facing Nth & Sth, if built itd probably be the most inefficient solar array in the history of the world. and the Don think hes the smart one. LMFAO

solar wall, LOL wall is expected to cost around $10billion, itd take over 100yrs of sunlight to pay for itself, Mexico certainly wont be giving any money towards it. Trump is a scammer and con man

Posted in: With clock ticking, Britain, EU play up chance of deal See in context

As was clear at the outset, the very best the UK can hope for is a Norway or Switzerland type of arrangement, i.e. less good than what it has now. exactly, some in the UK seem to think theyll be able to keep all the good free trade parts and dump the undesirables. Many EU members are against the UK getting favorable treatment that puts EU members at a disadvantage, after all why would anybody want to stay. Either way you look at it any future trade deals will be less desirable than what they got already, UK manufacturing will most certainly be at a disadvantage to its EU counterparts.

Posted in: Pence hires outside legal counsel See in context

What if no one helped and the Russians did it all by themselves? well if the Russian had any involvement in the election then the result is tarnished and void, whether Trump and his goons are guilty of collusion or not wont change the fact that their team had help by the Russians (known or not) Best case scenario the election should be run again, worse case scenario is nothing is done even if a man that is POTUS doesnt deserve to be in that position. Bit like an athlete that wins a gold medal but later finds his coach has been spiking his drink and he fails a drug test, should he be allowed to keep his gold! cheating is cheating

More people are killed in vehicle accidents than by firearms in the USA. If you really want to save lives, take all vehicles off the roads. statistic show that there are 8000+ gun homicides every year and about double this in suicides every year for the last 40yrs, thats approximately 23,000+ deaths by guns every year. Vehicle deaths are about 30,000+ every yr for last 10yrs, this is set to drop dramatically with the introduction of self driving vehicles . auto braking tech. Yet gun deaths will only decrease by limiting the easy access to guns, most US guns deaths are by hand guns not assault rifles.

What will the military do, drop a nuke on Idaho if they rise up? well if it gets bad enough they probably just drop precision bombs from drones onto their homes, or send in a tank to take them out, personal firearms dont have much effect against drones and tanks and I dont think RPGs , anti tank weapons or surface to air missiles are easily obtained or owned by US civilians. So itd be like bringing a knife to a gun fight

*so there is nothing more American than guns. ** fair comment, also fair to say that the mass killings and 30,000+ gun related deaths in the US every year can also fit under this title, actually pretty sad when you think about it. Im not American but have used guns on a regular basis in my younger years*

Posted in: Driver's wife recalls surreal moment when car flew into bus See in context

And how can you say it's my father's vehicle's design, if you don't know what the vehicle was or the dynamics of the accident?     well one of the main things manufacturers test for during a crash test is if the space in the vehicle is intruded by objects or the space is compressed enough to cause injury or death. SO its either your fathers vehicle is an old design or he was traveling at a very high speed. The steering rack of a vehicle should never protrude into the drivers space in an impact. A persons chance of survival drops dramatically should they leave the crash space of the vehicle, your father was a very lucky man

Seat belts "usually" save lives, but sometimes help to end them.  that is on a very few rare occasions, seems your fathers vehicles design was the problem not the seat belt. I was involved in a major crash with my wife in 2004. We had a head on collision with another driver doing about 70kph (other drive was at fault) we were around 60kph. the impact was enough to bend the chassis of the car into a slight banana shape. if either my wife or I had not been wearing seat belts she and I would probably ended through the windscreen on the road in front.. dead !. instead I had a fractured kneecap/wrist and seat belt bruising my wife 4 broken ribs and a slightly rupture liver spending 3 weeks in hospital. Seat belts most definitely SAVE LIVES, dont be an idiot, wear them!!!

Posted in: Another U.S. appeals court refuses to revive Trump travel ban See in context

I want the Supreme Court to look at the law as written, look at the Executive Order as written, Trump has stated it numerous times that the it was a "Muslim ban" its unconstitutional to discriminate against a person because of their race or religious beliefs. Trumps team has repeated failed to supply sufficient justification as to why travel ban is needed. Trump needs 5 out of 9 votes by the US supreme court , if its decided on a purely legal setting then its unlikely hell win, if its done on partisanship vote then its possible but it makes the US legal system a total farce.

Posted in: U.S. attorney general calls notion he colluded with Russia 'detestable lie' See in context

How can anybody prove that they are not part of a secret conspiracy? oh just as easy as proving "fake news" is actually fake, telling the truth is much easier to do than fabricating lies. When the truth is told everybody stories can be aligned, trying to get everybody lies to align is much more difficult to do and the holes can be exposed.

How much of that market will be taken by cheap Chinese copies of Airbus aircraft now that Airbus have been foolish enough to open a factory in China? China has shown that it willing to allow foreign makers to sell more of its planes in China if they do joint ventures with Chinese companies in China, Airbus can see the pros outweighs the cons in this regard. Boeing wont have much choice but to follow suit if it wants a larger slice of the fastest growing plane market.
