Re: The Trump Administration

Some of the above statements might be true. It would be nice to see some evidence. Got any? The most dubious claim is , "The people that are moving to the rural areas end up sharing the views of their new neighbors." This has not been my experience, nor have I observed it others. No doubt the Democr...

Re: The Trump Administration

I think it is a big positive. It will take the pressure off. Really? I doubt very much that anyone close to President ADHD feels that way. Special Counsel Mueller will have very broad range and subpoena power within a largely secret investigation. Their job is to find indictable offenses, and their...

Re: The Trump Administration

Yes, that's the law. The reality is, any impeached president is hopelessly tarnished and very weak, even if the conviction never happens. Nixon was not impeached, but he was on the verge of impeachment, and he resigned. Clinton was impeached of less serious charges, then acquitted, so he finished hi...

Re: The Trump Administration

Several forum members have objected to information from "unnamed sources". That's the way the game works....people with information will only talk based on anonymity, and professional journalists are supposed to confirm the information though multiple sources. With this story about Pumpknhead braggi...

Re: The Trump Administration

This should worry everyone..... But according to the officials, Trump relayed information from an intelligence-sharing arrangement that is so sensitive that some details aren't even shared with U.S. allies or broadly within the U.S. government. Trump cited the specifics of an ISIS plot and, most pro...

Re: The Trump Administration

No doubt there are deep power struggles occurring now....but Pumpkinhead is not in charge of any of it. He can-t control himself, or his staff, and the Russians played them all in the Oval Office. US media were banned (I suppose because someone had the idea that it would look bad for Pumpkinhead to ...

Re: The Trump Administration

So...then.....it's a mistake to focus on Pumpkinhead, because he's not near smart enough to come up with a strategy like that. Too much detail and history and real planning involved. I'm sure he would go along with it if he understood it, but it's beyond his ability, especially at age 70, and based ...

Re: The Trump Administration

So...now Pumpkinhead has fired the director of the FBI at a time when the FBI, along with both houses of Congress are actively investigating connections between President ADHD, his advisors and supporters, and Russia. Maybe there is something there, maybe not, but this dismissal stinks quite a bit. ...

Re: Work as English teacher

Sorry for the delay in getting back to this thread.... According to the information I received, it is possible to work as an "ayudante de aula" with a minimal amount of training in pedagogy, something like an associates degree in the US. In the case of a native English speaker, it is possible to be ...

Re: big storm coming?

The forecast for the Conce areas predicts 70 mm over a 5 day span, starting Thursday morning. Stocking up on essentials sounds like a good idea (as always).

Re: The Trump Administration

Cali, you write like you're surprised at something. Well, yeah, that's true in some ways. I am surprised at the complete political ineptitude of the current occupants of the White House. I had a nagging fear after the November elections that maybe this guy was truly savvy and "crazy like a fox". Tu...
