  1. I will maintain an exile from this forum but will make this last post here the reason for doing so being it has a connection to my father. As with many fathers he was instrumental in making me a Rangers fan. Last Wednesday, November 11th, he tested positive for covid-19. Just 4 days later on Sunday November 15th he died in hospital. For many and perhaps even most people including me the virus has become distant. Maybe especially so me since I'm living in a country where there's a culture of denial that it even exists. It's just stories on the news which doesn't directly touch them aside from the restrictions it has imposed on everyday life. Now it has touched me directly and I can't even attend the funeral of my own father. If I came home I would immediately be in a two week quarantine. I'm just one of many it has now touched directly. One of many more who will be touched by it before this nightmare is over. My father wasn't young but he was in good physical health until this and more than likely still had years ahead of him. Someone in China eats a bat then a year or so later my dad dies in Scotland because of it. The loss would have been hard at any time by any means. But this entire thing makes it an infinitely more bitter pill to swallow.
  2. Well since I frankly have zero faith in any impartiality on your part and your own questionable nature I will save you the trouble. I will ban myself.
  3. Neither of those premise are accurate. Trump inherited a a strong economy he didn't create one. And has conducted a witless losing trade war with China that's been detrimental for American farmers and steel workers. Both articles from PolitiFact. No, the economy didn't suddenly get strong under Donald Trump Did Donald Trump lose a trade war he started, as Joe Biden says?
  4. So yes, it is beyond you. You don't have the capacity to address a single thing on this issue. Yet still want to ramble on talking and saying nothing. You're Trump like.
  5. What? I write 500 words going over multiple points not a single facet of which you have even attempted to address, seemingly never happened in your empty vessel of a head. Exactly as I predicted. And my lack of self awareness is astonishing as I predict exactly what you will do before you do it? How far out of touch with reality and rationality are you? Go back to the post. Try to say something, See if you can produce a few sentences even. Is a paragraph or two beyond you? Address something for once. I don't think you can because I don't think you have the capacity to even construct an opinion on these issues. That being the case you have absolutely no chance of constructing a critique. Here it is, again, try your best. https://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/ipboard/topic/42808-america-in-flames/?do=findComment&comment=795101
  6. This is another example of how pointless discussion with you becomes. This is why I maintain you're just talking to be saying something while saying pretty much nothing of any real relevance to the actual point. The point being the extreme unfitness of this man to be heading anything at all far less a nation crucial to global security and stability. First it's alleged a term is meaningless because it's been used before, a claim which was pointed out to be itself meaningless. That's then ignored with no response to the rebuttal as if it never happened. To move on to more meaningless nonsense about anyone being critical of this orange wacko being unhinged. Again it was illustrated how meaningless that is too. And again that's entirely glossed over as if it never happened to move on to this further irrelevance about there being countless features of Trump to disparage. We all know there are countless insane features of Trumps behaviour plus inept and even corrupt governance, many and probably most of them already having been gone over countless times. Yet when one more feature is introduced all you can say is there are countless other things that could be discussed without bringing in this one. That's ludicrous. I could watch any analyst talk about Trump and know for a fact if someone responded with there are countless other features of Trump you could talk about aside from this one the response to that would be WTF? It's like saying he has been governing to benefit himself plus cronies not the nation, but there is no need to bring that into it when there are countless other features. It's pointless, meaningless comment. A man who has been knee deep in corruption his entire life. With a whole host of Mafia connections, Russian criminals and oligarchs, and even Putin himself in the mix which all makes him so compromised it's unimaginably dangerous. But you think it's of value to distract from it to ramble on about Biden and Clinton. That's frankly bizarre if it's actually seriously supposed to mean anything worthwhile rather than just another instance of talking while saying nothing of any value just to be contrary. Forget this utter shite you babble about anyone getting worked up about an incompetent, corrupt, and potentially treasonous nutcase who dog whistles to neo nazi and KKK groups. This is a topic with global repercussions and it's not going to be stopped talking about by anybody because somebody with nothing to say rambles on about getting worked up about it. More meaningless shite. If you can actually say something say it. My guess is you have no idea what to say that would bring any rational worth. Because when you're trapped in a mindset of talking just to be talking and simply to be contrary you end up in a bubble of stupidity you can't get out of. Because there are things that you can't simply be contrary about simply to be contrary without looking stupid. And this is one of them.
  7. Well first of all I think you're demonstrating a high degree of unhingement each and any time anyone has anything critical to say about Trump. An unhingement so pronounced it's effectively declaring voicing unfavourable opinions of Trump is unhinged. And that when such opinions are actually the opinion of the majority of the international community at both government and street level. A clown openly laughed at by an audience of UN representatives for his ludicrous posturing and lies. And labelled a total idiot by leaders of major nations caught expressing that opinion at a NATO summit in London, while unbeknownst to them there was a mic nearby catching their exchange. Real unhingement lies in proclaiming valid criticism unhinged. In fact stupid beyond words. What are these people who are critical of Trump supposed to do? Never voice their concerns in case some idiot says they're unhinged for doing so? I doubt that's going to stop people voicing their concerns in the run up to an election. And the rational among us are relieved about that. As for Trump I don't doubt for a moment that if he could declare authoritarian dictatorship for life he would do so in a heartbeat and especially so right now. He would be in dreamland if he could be an American version of his hero Putin. Controlling what the press say and ordering hits on critics. But i's not looking good for him and he's now running scared. When the shield of that office is removed, when he can no longer fire investigators nor run hindrance on investigations, the shit is really going to hit the fan for him. He's an idiot but still has enough marbles to know that much. There are going to be jail sentences for their activities. All his current enablers will begin running for cover when that shit hits the fan. Likely to strike deals revealing the depth of the activities to get out of jail time. I presume he knows that too. Maybe some including him will be able to wish Ghislaine Maxwell good luck in person.
  8. Statements like term X is thrown around so much it's meaningless is thrown around so much at so many terms/topics that it's entirely meaningless. Especially so when absolutely nothing is proposed to counter the argument being presented. It's as pointless as saying that paedophile ring is thrown around so much it's meaningless to continue saying it.
  9. Pretty obvious no one is going to be paying that kind of money or anything like it. They wouldn't pay it if he were a 20 year old far less 33. But I don't see how they can keep him now either. This isn't about money on his part. He has more money than he would need to live in luxury for scores of lifetimes so they can't buy him off. He wants out and that's that. They're just going to have to accept that and work out something rational with somebody.
  10. Kent has to move on sometime, has to be cashed in at some point. But in the meantime he appears content where he is and that's fine by me. Next Summer might be the optimum time when he still has two years on his contract. Unless of course he was offered and accepted an extension giving us another year or two before cashing in.
  11. I suppose Leverkusen could be considered a hangover from last season. It was part of last seasons Europa league.
  12. Be interesting to see the difference when Aribo comes back. Now that we know what it looks like without him.
