Blocking aide to Ukraine. And comments like this (which is consistent with previous comments Trump has made about NATO). Someone said that if a Democrat said this prior to 2016, Republicans (and conservative) media would be castigating this person, calling them a traitor.
Trump: One of the presidents of a big country stood up and said, Well, sir, if we don't pay and were attacked by Russia, will you protect us? I said.. No I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. pic.twitter.com/2RPVDFZIXy
Actually, I just wanted to talk specifically about some of the coaching changes (although feel free to comment on the playoffs). I’ve really distanced myself from the sport, but I have been curious about the coaching moves. Here are some thoughts:
The U.S. Senate was real close to a deal on the border and also funding for Ukraine and Israel. A few days ago I read that Senator McConnell said that this deal would be better than if the Republicans controlled Congress and the White House. Democrats want funding for Ukraine so much they haven’t included a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers.
But McConnell and Romney say that Trump is pressuring Republican senators not to accept the current bipartisan deal. Romney says that Trump does want Biden to get a political victory with this deal–even though it would help address a problem many Republicans say is critical. Listen to Romney’s comments:
Some people have names that novelists would avoid using for characters because they would be unbelievable or too on-the-nose, or both–e.g., Chad Wackerman, a jazz-rock drummer. Actually, Wackerman is a real person. In this thread, I’d like real people with names like these. Actually, I wouldn’t mind hearing examples from novels as well.
That’s the question thisCivilbeat article tries to address. The topic is important to be me because it’s related to the high housing costs, which is a really big issue. The article is a good start at answering the question, and I hope to comment on it in this thread.
In my upcoming rock/pop discussion class, participants will be selecting, listening and discussing songs based on themes. I have some of the themes already, and I thought hearing song suggestions, or even theme suggestions, from others would be fun.
Here’s one theme I had in mind that I wanted feedback on:
…Hawks, Cowboys: I wonder what Reid would have thought if he watched this game. The Hawks receivers were killing the Cowboys for a lot of this game especially in the first half. Geno wasn’t getting too much time in the pocket, but he and his receivers consistently made plays. Bland, who people are saying should be the front-runner for Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) gave up more yards to his receivers in a half than any other DB this year. He did get a pick in the second half though.
I also thought Seattle’s DBs were playing decent despite the Cowboys being able to march up and down the field. The DBs had some tick-tack calls on them, but they seem to be a physical group in general. But Dak played too well. He even had some drops that cost the Cowboys points.
I might not even watch the Seahawks play today. I’m pretty sure about their style of play now, and I think the results will be bad. It’s pretty hard to continue watching your favorite team when this is the situation (which is why I became emotionally detached from the Raiders).
