re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Pardon my ignorance, but is a shutdown even a bad thing when the GOP controls all branches? Isn't no gov't better than a GOP-run gov't, in that the passing of evil legislation is paused during the shutdown?

But also, in any other line of work, if you decide to stop showing up to work because of a disagreement with your coworkers, your ass gets fired. Why can't we the people just fire all their asses and hold a special election to replace them?

Expert play is to select a PPP that works well with your screen size / resolution. Going max on some setups can be super ****ty to navigate.

New Jersey prosecutors have collected evidence that supervisors at President Trump’s Garden State golf club may have committed federal immigration crimes — and the FBI as well as special counsel Robert Mueller have played part in the inquiry, the Daily News has learned.

Anibal Romero, a Newark attorney who represents several undocumented immigrants who used to work at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, said Friday he recently met with investigators from the state attorney general’s office and handed over fraudulent green cards and Social Security numbers that management at the club allegedly procured and gave his clients,...

Morales, a Guatemalan national who is still employed at the club but has stopped going to work, and Diaz, a Costa Rican national who used to work there and has since obtained legal status, are among at least five undocumented housekeepers at the club who allege they were set up with fraudulent documents and subjected to abuse and racial harassment.

I've been running 50 ppp for over a decade on here and just started getting the slow loading on that thread very recently, like within last month.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I didn't complain, but ftr, I am a 50ppp user and there was definitely lag in the thread.

It wasn't unbearable lag, but I'd see it in action by going to the main Politics page and opening a bunch of tabs for unread threads. Then you look up at your browser tabs, and all the threads would have finished loading except the Trump thread, which would lag a few seconds behind.

Again, not terrible, but it's not something people were imagining. In gif form, comparing the opening of the LC thread to the Trump thread:

I was on 100 for a few years but it might have even been this first thread when I switched back to 50.

A slowing economy. Mueller. New York investigators. House Democrat majority and their upcoming inquiries . Now add the principled resignation of Mattis, a government shutdown that Trump said he’d proudly own, and who knows what else down the road. Trump is in for a rough 2019

Also 50ppp. Had started noticing more delay after Suzzer's initial complaints but still intermittent. Didn't do any testing though.

Saudis 'helped citizen in Oregon hit-and-run manslaughter case flee US'

Quote:
A Saudi student accused of killing a teenager in a hit-and-run escaped justice with help from Saudi Arabia, US officials reportedly suspect.

Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, 21, fled the US last year, and Saudi officials may have helped him obtain an illegal passport, the Oregonian reported.

He is accused of killing Fallon Smart, 15, in Portland, Oregon, in 2016.

The Saudi government only recently informed US officials of his return home, according to the Oregonian.

Mr Noorah faces first-degree manslaughter - with a minimum sentence of 10 years - as well as hit-and-run, reckless endangerment and reckless driving charges in the US.

fwiw I'm another 50ppp guy and the thread took about as long to open or switch pages as in goofyballer's gif. Definitely long enough to be annoying.
