Let's start again and please keep the bickering to a minimum. One thread, all the news.

If my style of posting is going to be labelled as childish bickering then the kind of views I oppose are going to have to go unopposed henceforth.

I see the logic in what you are asking (to keep the bickering from filling up the news thread), but, to be fair, there was not anything nasty said between us. And I don't really see the point in this news forum if people are not allowed to disagree; we are all not going to agree on everything.

Can we not have a thread on here in which we can all debate and disagree (without resorting to needless nastiness, of course) - away from this one?

This calls out the latest Fox News/Trump “bombshell” as a fraud:

“Both Republican Memos” — the Nunes memo and what is the second memo? The Nunes memo was incomplete! There was more material presented to the FISA court besides the Steele Dossier!

I wish Canada would do it.

@ JLP, a message from my father, not sure if here is the right place to put it. He appreciated and would like to thank you for the article about the history of the fisherman and the wives you posted the other day. It actually made him open up about his time as a fisherman.
Maybe a weird question, but since Hull and the very east coast of Canada had fishing in common, have you ever heard about the Grand Banks of Newfoundland while you were growing up? Please don't feel obligated to answer.
Thanks again...
Spoiler! :
From the both of us.

There was a 2nd memo released yesterday. There will be more.

ETA: 2nd memo was day before yesterday, not yesterday.

The 2nd memo is not a Republican memo. It is a 10-page Memo from Adam Schiff and the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee refuting the Nunes Republican memo.

It didn't refute anything. It's much, much more damaging for the Democrats. It's showing treason and a long stay in prison once this is over.
