The reason is that after publishing two rather succesfull children books (a cyber fantasy-esque Harry Potter-ish kinda I...

I had this issue last summer, so I know how painful it is.

I don't know what changed for me, wish I could help.

I can confirm I'm on Firefox as well, and it is working for me, to at least narrow down a little.
yeah, buddy. its horrible. but changing password seems to have solved it. im back.

Whatever the reasons are, 47% of people polled approve of the job Trump is doing.

Sure, you can call them misinformed or deceived. But that is what they think.
exactly.

btw: are you guys sure the economy is booming? I hear its overheated and debts are through the roof?

50% of voters, TB. Most of the country doesn't care or isn't affected.
really? he has drowned you in insane press and people have resigned? Sounds fair. I often feel the same thing. I REALLY just prefer to not think about it. thats terrible.

ok now I got it.

So.. honestly, how is this not a de facto coup detat? a post modern, high tech, lawyer driven state coup by a superrich cadre of business-aristocrats?

Re: Explanation of Trump speech needed

Did you not see all 4 federal prosecutors quit Stone case after DOJ overrules prosecutors on sentencing request (basically in protest because trump is using his executive power to get his friend off the hook) ? eh, what? NO! That hasn't been a thing here. Sounds insane. Would you care to elaborate?...

Re: Explanation of Trump speech needed

ok. so that is no longer true. well. that breaks my heart. did you see the speech? can we agree that it was completely insane? or am I losing it too? I feel Trumpism is poisoning my mind. seriously- the world has flipped. weird and cruel things are now just totally ok.

It had some goofy parts, and it had some rushed script work, but the good parts were so incredibly good that I literally couldn't stop tears from flowing as the credits rolled.

This entire movie made me no longer hate episode 8. Not because it made it make more sense, but because I realize it doesn't matter. The sequel trilogy is an unmitigated disaster and this movie is just about big, bigger, biggest lasers, superheros, winks to the audience, all powerful jedi and sith,...

I feel for the Star Wars fans who are seemingly incapable of enjoying Star Wars anymore. I also wonder how much of it is people just * on Disney because it's the cool thing to do now. But personally, I can't wait to see this one again. Thanks, JJ [emoji106] I feel the same way, very much so! X3 wor...
