3cardbrag- I totally stand by my comment that it was a derisible comparison. It always makes me laugh, when people talk about the 'sisterhood spouting off' - it's always said in a derogatory, indignant and demeaning way, intent on belittling women for expressing a view, or, God forbid, taking to the streets to protest. How very dare they? I wonder when women would have been 'given' the right to vote, without the Suffragettes protesting for it? Or equal rights to own property for that matter, or equal pay etc etc etc? All these fundamental rights have been very hard fought for, and won, by the 'Sisterhood' that you are so scathing about. None were just 'given'. Incidentally, the women's march of Versailles in 1789 succeeded in running Louis XV1 out of town and kickstarted The French Revolution. The people marching in Washington with Martin Luther King in1963 brought about radical change within a year.Our own home grown Protest March in the Uk regarding The Poll Tax directly led to it being dropped. I'm not suggesting for one second that Trump will be run out of office, but people power should not be under estimated, especially in America. Goodnight.
Well not another share in the Banking or mining sector - as your posts indicate you are overexposed there. So a different sector is reduce risk....suggest BOO a £1.5b AIM on-line clothing retailer that caters for young/teenage girls. VERY highly rated with a p/e of 85 but explosive growth as it's expanding internationally. BTW-Results expected soon. I hold these shares that since Feb have quadruped in price. DYOR please. Cheers/ATB
obama said from the begining,that the US under his term,would be less of the worlds police force. hence the low key,in syria and why not,the middle east is well armed with yank and russian hardware. nite
3card..I think millions will be watching his progress... and with trepidation, I think.
I'm sorry you couldn't see any positives for Obama..hopefully you read the attached link with 50 top achievements. Bear in mind, too..He went 8 years with a clean White House..no scandals. Off the top of my head ,I think that's a first. He certainly fell short on Syria but he had the Iranians putting pressure on him not to get involved at the very time he was negotiating that nuclear deal.. the one Trump said he'd tear up.. With hindsight he also pulled out too many troops from Iraq before the job was done re. ISIS. He's good decent man. He also tried to get gun control on the agenda but was defeated by the NRA.
We must agree to differ on the effectiveness of Obama. Suggest you mark Trump in due course on his presidential record. Thinker - re "Your attempt to compare the Rotherham rapes with a person's right to march is derisable" That is a gross and deliberate misinterpretation of what Newchurch posted and my support of it. I am sure he was merely making the point that the Sisterhood love spouting off about anything heterosexual or right wing, or worse, BOTH, but shrink away from more serious wrongdoings, especially those with a PC, left wing or ethnic twist
Not much more but I wanted to say this re. Trump who you seemingly eulogise.
Trump..built up a multi-billion dollar fortune through shrewd business deals ,you say. Are you having us on ? He's been made subject of bankruptcy proceeding 4 or 6 times depending on how you determine bankruptcy. His father had to bail him out or he;d have gone completely bust. He has no awareness of risk..now that is a danger regarding the Presidency. One observer states that had he invested the part of his father's real estate company in the S&P 500 in 1974 he would have amassed a far larger fortune than he has.
He has a track record of building up his businesses with unsustainable debt ,then come the bankruptcies. Economists are worried about the US debt under his watch.
Over the past few years he's had only two or maybe three of his hotels ranked in America's top 150..His success has been in self-promotion,marketing,enhancing properties and running beauty competitions.
He's the only President not to have his tax returns open for scrutiny. He won't do it either. When asked recently he said that the people aren't interested because they voted him President anyway, quote "only you..the medias are interested". Neither will he put his business interest into a blind trust fund as is the norm upon becoming President..for obvious reasons.
