The fastest I ever went (on land) was 135mph with another teen driving his brothers Tbird

I was in the back seat. Both me and the front seat passenger were yelling at the driver to slow down or stop. When we got into town and stopped at a sign the passenger dragged the driver out of the car and punched him out. I donít think it cured him because I think he ultimately got in a high speed crash but at least no one was with him. Kids at that age should be limited to something like a VW Bug.

As for them not using their newest tank, they don't want the world to see they are POS

The war has shown Russian equipment to be over rated. Though itís really showing their poor tactics, possible customers for Russian arms are going to be turned off.

I canít remember if I read it here or elsewhere, but the details of the sinking of their Black Sea flagship cruiser are illuminating. The ship was the pride of their fleet with a very impressive host of armaments including a 3 tiered air defense, but was sunk by a couple relatively inexpensive cruise missiles. Turns out only one of their longest range air defense missiles was functional as well as their close defense Gatling gun style weapons (only one functional). Their radar systems were mostly not working due to expensive parts being stripped and sold on the black market. And probably the biggest thing, their fire control systems were also largely not functional for similar reasons; stolen parts, fire extinguishers missing. Also throughout the entire ship many important pieces of equipment were locked up for protection and unavailable quickly. All Putinís war has accomplished is showing the world that Russia is a paper Tiger.

If you were walking around on those beams and they were one foot off the ground you'd never

Think twice. But when itís a thousand feet down itís a whole different story. For myself, when I worked on tall concrete structures I got pretty used to it. But getting high on some steel framework that sways in the wind or when a truck comes by...never got used to that. But I suppose if I did it every day Iíd get used to it. I think of some jobs I had when I was younger that I got used to after awhile and it was just a job.

I hope when trump crashes and burns he somehow takes the whole party down

Or at least the biggest enablers. Itís not so far fetched, you know heíll drag as many as possible and try to blame them. But I hope it goes beyond just the obvious that they allowed him to do all that heís done. Weíve all wondered what he has on these people that makes they so subservient. Itís most likely he just passes on what Putin tells him because Vlad has all the goods. But what if trump himself has copies of the receipts? I could see him having a hissy self pity party and taking everyone down with him. Iíve mentioned before the parallels to Hitler and at the end he did his best to see Germany utterly destroyed because they were unworthy.

Have the russian trolls infiltrated DU?

I've seen a few discussions about politics go off the rail lately. Some replies devolve to hostile personal attacks. The Russians have proven themselves to be very adept at stirring the pot, getting americans to turn on each other. I always say they know how to get the most bang for the buck. Hire a few trolls and spend a couple thousand to disrupt our political system and elections. Using an array of espionage tricks they will steal our latest weapons systems, spending a few million to get billions of dollars worth of American research. Way cheaper than having to do it themselves.

"North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned. It is a hell that no person deserves."

That's actually not a bad quote, I'm sure he didn't come up with it on his own. I think "envisioned" has 4 syllables?

Do you think in his wildest dreams Putin ever foresaw how successful he'd be?

I really doubt the Russians were counting on a Trump victory, let alone that he would do everything in his power to hide the truth about Russian interference.

Maybe Trump himself wasn't directly involved but I am sure by now he is well aware that the Russians not only influenced the elections but continue to sow discord. Any real American president would do his best to put a stop to this, he'd put America first. But the Russians helped elect someone who is so narcissistic that he is easy to manipulate, and they will continue to do so with susceptible Americans even if Trump resigns.

I wish someone who was good at it would photo-shop all pictures of DT to be naked

Its not just the obvious association of "The Emperor has no Clothes" I was reflecting how in our society wearing a suit/jacket & tie automatically causes the the wearer to be held in higher regard. Trump is a fat-ass, loud, obnoxious, lying blowhard. He would fit right in with a pickup, rifle rack, and Nazi paraphernalia. It would make it more obvious if someone could remove the trappings he has.

White House: 'Real Russia scandal' is Clinton camp's ties to controversial dossier

President Trump, the White House and Fox News are seizing upon a Washington Post report that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped pay for the controversial dossier that made salacious but unverified claims about Trumpís ties to Russia.

ďThe real Russia scandal?Ē White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted on Tuesday night, shortly after the Postís story was published online. ďClinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up.Ē


Even if there was some truth to the article, and it was some sort of election law violation, everyone is so used to Trumps camp lying and try to distract the only ones who will latch onto this are died-in-the-wool republicans.
