Firstly no one cares if you are devastated about your picture being used. Maybe don’t open your pictures to be used or bought for advertising.

Secondly “Government shouldn’t be encouraging people to give up what they love”
I’m sorry Krys, love don’t pay the bills, you want cash money in this world? You got to work for it.

Supply and Demand. Ain’t much demand for prancing about on stage for a packed theatre anymore. So do what everyone else does with a hobby, and get a real job.

“Being about 11 or 12 and feeling like I had to be someone I wasn't and suppress my creative energy to satisfy what 'others' saw as productive lives."

What a load of absolute crap. You go be as creative as you want, no one cares. But you have to pay the rent, the mortgage, the bills, the heating, the food, transport, living cost etc etc. Just like everyone else. There’s families out there in a far worse position who can’t just prance about and demand free money.

Wise up you absolute throbber.

Ha!

Or indeed the rise across Europe of nationalism, euroscepticism and right leaning political groups and ideals!

If only there was some explanation or reason, the mind truely boggles!


You also have had riots in the Netherlands last month or so which went on for a few days; which included launching projectiles at law enforcements. Also,the occasional attack on whites just because they were white.

Not to mention Bloomberg directly interfering with the election by paying $6million worth of criminal fines in Florida allowing 31,000 felons to vote, and telling them to vote for Biden.

The stuff in the USA is really kicking off now. This laptop is making some people very nervous. Anyone think that Hunter Biden will survive until the new year. I think he's going to see a nasty accident very soon.

This damned election! Just report the results!

The media bias is so obvious. They are happy to call Arizona but continue the count.
But refuse to call Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia.

It’s deliberate manipulation to make people think it’s a landslide win for Biden.
The results should be called as:
264 Biden - 268 Trump.

You can’t call states that fit your agenda and refuse to call states that don’t fit your agenda.

People calling for Trump to concede, even they Dems aren’t conceding the states.

This has been an absolute joke of an election.

2016, Clinton called for impeachment and cheating and spent 4 years trying to impeach Trump to be proven wrong.

Trump takes legal action to bring some standardisation to the election, after bringing all this up, months before Election Day. None of this is new. He went to the Supreme Court 4 times to sort this out.
And the media jump all over him.

The media are deliberately misleading the public at how close this is. To put it in perspective, the same amount of people who voted for Obama, have voted for Trump.

Even though, as of not long ago Biden is leading in Georgia and is getting closer in Pennsylvania?

Yes now but only recently. Due to differing state regulations (which Trump was challenging before the election).

The point was if Biden is being reported as 264 with Arizona being called, despite the count continuing.
Then Trump should be reported as 268 with PA, NC and GA still continuing the count.

Then the states can Declare at the end of the count. Or do what Nevada is doing and not report until it’s done.

So for anyone looking at headlines just sees Trump behind at 214, and it appears as a biden landslide, despite the fact it’s incredibly close. And Trump has out performed in the states he won.

The same number of people who voted for Obama, have voted for Trump. That’s staggering. With what, 5 million more votes in total.

The states differ vastly too. So Texas allow ballots post marked on Tuesday 3rd, but received by 1700 Wednesday the 4th only.
But Nevada allow ballots postmarked Election Day but received by Tuesday 10th.
That’s a huge difference. That’s why trump has been pushing for standardisation since before the Election.

There’s been reports of observers not being allowed to confirm correct procedures for mail in votes. And states even specifically stated that the ballots and envelopes don’t have to match or even be post marked.


Mail in voting has had its problems and corruption before the election and it’s been contested before.

Even so, a recount can only be called after verification which takes about 10days.

Trump would Be within his rights to refuse to concede until it’s confirmed.

I bet Biden doesn’t last 6 months before Kamala Harris pulls 25th Amendment to snatch Presidency.

Wasn't sure whether to put this in the things that make you laugh thread or here because it's both funny and annoying.

Just got a temp job as a packer for an online military kit store while I wait for med appeal results and hopefully new start date etc. One of the things they stock is Green Berets so I'm flapping about potentially having to handle them, owing to the old superstition that you shouldn't touch it until it's earned or you'll never earn one. Thankfully the owner is a former RE Cdo so might understand the concern but if not I'll have to think up some ingenious way of doing so. A bootneck mate said to ignore the superstition because 1) many bootneck's sons wear their dad's as a kid and still go on to earn one themselves, 2) you shape it before the 9 miler anyway, 3) "it's just a piece of cloth until a Royal has fixed their cap badge to it and made it a CGB", and 4) "the original story was it was good luck to hold one so use it to empower you and draw its energy for nod training".

All the same, I'm not religious or any of that trollop but am quite superstitious on this one and it plays on my mind! -banghead-

The media orchestrated one of the greatest character assassinations of Trump over the last 4 years, the fact that he still got that many votes is testament to the fact he must be doing something right. I don't like him too much but I'd rather him than corrupt Biden anyday...

Agreed. I’m not his biggest fan. But I can see the whole picture.

Whoa, hold the bus.

Your telling me some bloke hundreds of years ago held different views?!

Next you will be telling me that people used to believe the world was flat, demons lived in people, the sun needed human sacrifices to continue to rise?! It’s almost like people didn’t think, know or care about the things we do now?!


How in the name of Poseidon’s drooping, veiny, full and pulsating ballsack is that even news worthy?!

What do you mean,

"used to believe"

still plenty out there that do, granted a lot of them reside in the southern US of A.

Anyway I must get on, I still have to get the reindeer food ready for Santa :)

Having to work in retail and customers trying to return an item and claim its faulty with no proof purchase,
I couldn't work in retail. Just not a 'people person' I guess.
One benefit of the 'cashless society' is that more people have legitimate 'proof of purchase' in the format of a card transaction record even if they don't have a receipt.

...they think every company has the same policy and think just because you've changed your mind you're allowed your money back.
With so many people engaging with distance selling I speculate that many assume that the fourteen-day 'just changed my mind' return policy exists across all retail platforms.
