The Republican party has been purged of most of those who questioned him so the ones left are either vocal supporters or keeping quiet.


Not sure Trump cares about those Republicans even when they are the most obsequious sycophant left.

What do you call a president who rules with fear, intimidation, and alleged blackmail? A mob boss? Mafia?


President Trump. Trudeau to some extent.

The current occupant represents the Republican party. He is part of the Republican party. He was never an "outsider" as his donors are the same donors that most of the other republican politicians have.


I am not sure Trump and Republican party care about each other too much.

I hope we don't go back to the Conservatives with their anti climate, anti women, and uterus control ideas.


Thanks for your long reply! I didn't know JWR's "N to N" agenda.

The solution can only come from outside the two political parties.


That is correct. And the first grotesque result is current presidency.

Will the next child be better-looking?

JWR is more fitting to be Canadian PM.

Bloody foreign tourists. Whistle


Going back enough in time I doubt one tribe is much different from the other.

Bloody foreign tourists indeed. It used to be westerner to Asia, Africa, etc. Now the Asians have immigrated and settled all over the world. They are not just looking at you for a couple of days and are gone. If you look around they are your new neighbors now.

There are several Roman aqueducts still in existance from before the fall of the Western Empire.

The Anio Vetus aqueduct remains in Rome.

Not all are in Rome.

Pont du Gard Nimes France.

It's something I think it's difficult to get your head around unless you are used to it Roman structures can still exist, there are places near me in St Albans where you can walk where Romans would have,

Thanks for that. Obviously I did not pay attention to the detail. I took "Western Roman Empire" as the same as "Roman Empire".

Ancient they ARE and they still look beautiful!Applause

How about:"The builders of the Roman aqueduct would not have imagined that they were making a scene for the future?" Angel

Ancient: Of, relating to, or belonging to times long past, especially before the fall of the Western Roman Empire (ad 476)

It seems the aqueduct is not old enough to be ancient.

Topic: Too thinly streched

Those people literally "spread too thin" to venture farther.

spread (oneself) thin
To engage in too many tasks or responsibilities to do all of them properly; to overextend oneself.


Not in this sense though.
