I see the Rock is saying he would consider running for president if demand from people. 
 

I predict he will be a US president. 🤷🏻‍♂️
 

He has fame, understands how to play to media/public and he massive and the yanks believe no one would **** with him. 
 

In fairness the guy is hugely successful, with a work ethic off the charts, aspirations and means, and actually seems to have heart. On the basis the yanks love a TV/film star president, they could and have, done a lot worse, 

 

Dwayne Johnson would be much like Obama. 

He'd be a brilliant orator, would have good advisors etc but would find himself trying to meet in the middle with right wing nut jobs and achieving little. 

 

Would hope to be completely wrong though.

Na, he'd just give the right wing nut jobs the people's elbow.

End stage capitalism, an empire in decline as @A Boy Named Crow alluded to.

Is this due to, the now inevitable, panic buying whenever something untoward happens...or have supply lines in Texas collapsed entirely?

With basically no electricity I'm assuming it's a combination of both. It may clarify one way or the other in the next several days.

Weak minds is right. You only need to look at the inane ramblings of the US posters on here to realise how narcissistic most, not all, are. 

Make a gigantic mess of their own country, stand by and watch as country tears itself apart and yet feel like they are qualified to comment on what is best for Scotland. 


Wonder who you are referencing. Ill bet its someone on this thread and someone who has more clue about things here than a good 60/70% of people (at least) do when speaking about whats best for Scotland....

Photos of Ted Cruz slithering off with his family on a flight to Cancun.

 

In the middle of what's probably the worst disaster in Texas history.

 

He, and most American politicians especially on the Republican side, have nothing but contempt for regular folk.

He was just pulling numbers out of his arse and trying to deflect from the genocide of Native Americans. The Native American population in the US was less than a quarter million at the turn of the 20th century, from an estimated range of 6-18 million in the 17th century when colonisation of what's now the US began in earnest. Maybe there were 90 million in the western hemisphere. I don't know.

 

“Hitler’s concept of concentration camps as well as the practicality of genocide owed much, so he claimed, to his studies of English and United States history. He admired the camps for Boer prisoners in South Africa and for the Indians in the wild west; and often praised to his inner circle the efficiency of America’s extermination – by starvation and uneven combat – of the red savages who could not be tamed by captivity.”

Is the Senate on holiday ?

Fair play to Cruz for spending yesterday looking stupid before heading to Mexico whilst his constituents freeze.

It is, yeah. Not enough pressing problems I guess, including issuing those $2,000 relief checks Biden and the Democrats promised would be going out right away if Georgians got out and voted for them.

Can't be bothered going back and quoting the post but somehow I think that mayor fella has taken that "Ask not what your country can do for you..." thing too far. 

 

I mean, what is the state actually there for if not to ensure basic infrastructure, you know, like water and electricity, is in place. But nope. Apparently tax dollars aren't for that. I'm assuming he thinks they're just for spending on bombs to drop on foreign people. Or bullets for black guys. 

 

I mean, even the ****ing Nazis would be proud of that "strong survive, weak perish" line. 

 

The US is ****ed.

She got Michael McFaul, former Ambassador to Russia, amongst others. To be fair though, she's REALLY good at this.

Been a hell of a 24 hours, for Raphael Cruz. 

 

Imagine your first thought to explain away an unnecessary trip to Mexico, whilst your State and its people are literally in an emergency and are dying; is to throw your kids under a bus as an initial excuse. Only to then admit what everyone knew anyway.

 

Lets Trump insult his wife. Then this.

 

Dear, dear.

Not just throw your kids under a bus, but straight up lie that your plan was to get them down there safely and immediately come back up. Which he claimed.

 

But it's been confirmed that he bought a ticket on standby in response to the furore and his initial ticket had him scheduled to return to Texas on Saturday.

Yeah, I liked the picture of his "overnight" bag. :lol: Then he went on Hannity to have his conscience soothed.

 

Mad as shit he got caught. Moral of the story: If you're a rich privileged individual looking to sneak away in the midst of a crisis...fly private.

Then of course this unloved cocaine-addled dipshit, decided to have his say.

 

Needless to say, it didn't end well. About as politically savvy as his father. Abbott will be most upset...

I'd have to look back further in the thread for that exact sentiment. The more recent one was reminiscent. Same Limbaugh energy.

Meh, the right to question a persons authority to pronounce on Scottish affairs based on their perceived qualification to do so is legitimate, imo.

Bringing nationality into it just makes people tetchy (rightly or wrongly), and can muddy valid concerns (again, rightly or wrongly). It's so clumsy.

It all comes down to an individual or section of society's discomfort at being telt by someone who has (to their mind) a limited knowledge of their lived realities (and again, rightly or wrongly).

The phenomenon is scalable, and people inevitably kick back.

The impartial observer will often detect some measure of it traveling in both directions.

You know all this though so I'm wasting my time. :)

 

Telling someone to get oot based on nationality deserves a shoeing, imo.

As always, I appreciate your thoughts. No waste of time whatsoever.

The entire notion that people who are not "from" a place must sit down and shut up, never to form their own opinion—that it's a bad thing for them to have read, discussed, explored and otherwise educated themselves on the history, politics, and affairs of their new home, deserves a shoeing, IMO. I have interacted with several people not originally from Scotland who have been on the receiving end of the same, most shamefully even from the thankfully relatively small jingoistic element of independence supporters, although most often from people of other political persuasions.

 

Bottom line is that it's a shitty thing to do and shows up the character of a person who would do it quite plainly.
