    "if i had not been elected president of the united states, we would right now (in my opinion) be in a major war with north korea" ..... donnie t's words from his recent state of the union address

    is he really too dim to get that, if he's still having to justify his presence in the white house after all this time, something must be going horrendously wrong .....?

    i do, however, agree with his plea that it's time to end the damaging "investigations" that have littered his presidency - he's absolutely right about that - we should be bringing the investigations to a close and moving on to the actual punishment resulting from them instead

    The BBC drama "Call the Midwife" has been focussing on the way things used to be before abortion was legalised this series (Not something I would choose to watch, but my wife forces me to. I am not hooked or anything, I could stop if I wanted to!)
    It is a great reminder of those wonderful times before abortion was legalised. When women were given no control over their own situation and were forced into desperation and denied treatment by trained medical professionals in hygenic surroundings. Instead they took matters dangerously into their own hands, either by trying increasingly toxic home remedies or visiting back street practitioners with little or no training who would "deal" with the problem.

    The consequences were often catastrophic.

    In places where abortion is illegal, the rich travel to other countries to see medical professionals and those that can't afford to still call on the back street solution.

    Surely in a civilised world, that can't be what we want. Give women the counselling and support they need to make good, informed decisions and then support what ever decision they make about their futures.

    Colorado Sports Store Closes After Anti-Kaepernick Protest Backfires.

    A Colorado sporting goods store is closing after refusing to sell Nike merchandise in a protest against the company’s endorsement deal with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

    Prime Time Sports, which had been in business for more than 20 years, decided to pull Nike products from its shelves after the company’s deal with Kaepernick to be the face of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” advertising.

    Owner Stephen Martin said his business struggled after the decision, and “just can’t keep the doors open anymore.”

    “Being a sports store without Nike is kind of like being a milk store without milk or a gas station without gas. How do you do it? They have a monopoly on jerseys,” Martin told a local NBC station.

    Kaepernick sparked a wave of protests by fellow NFL players in 2016 when he began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

    Nike’s decision to feature Kaepernick in the ads was immediately controversial, with some customers boycotting the brand and even burning their merchandise. President Donald Trump and his conservative backers lashed out at the NFL protests, and Trump attacked Nike for featuring Kaepernick.

    Martin also canceled an autograph session with Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall after he became the third NFL player to kneel during the U.S. national anthem in 2016.

    “As much as I hate to admit this, perhaps there are more Brandon Marshall and Colin Kaepernick supporters out there than I realized,” the store owner lamented.

    Martin, his store out of business, said he doesn’t regret his decision.

    “I didn’t give in to big Nike and big dollars. I didn’t give in. I did it my way,” he said. “That part of the military respect that’s in me just cannot be sacrificed or compromised, as I believe Brandon Marshall and Colin Kaepernick both did. I don’t like losing a business over it, but I rather be able to live with myself.”
    Even after losing, they have to pat themselves on the back like they've actually accomplished something.
