  1. There is just one way to save Labour and that is to finally get rid of Corbyn. Before the elections. Labour needs someone who gives the Tories and Theresa as well as UKIP hell.
  2. ^^^ THIS! A ruling of the SCOTUS becomes the law of the land. Therefore it doesn't matter if NC passes the law. If they declare all gay marriages illegal or if they refuse to marry gay couples they are breaking federal law. If they want to get rid of marriage equality they need to bring a lawsuit before the SCOTUS, Something that usually takes a lot of time since you cannot call upon the SCOTUS immediately. Usually you need to sue your way through the whole court system.
  3. I mean this is the perfect example how staff can do everything wrong while probably sticking too much to the guidelines of their company. First of all, why did they have to board all passengers and then asking passengers to leave. You do that before boarding. Communication has just been horrible. Bargaining about the money they pay for passengers to take another flight? Sorry, from my knowledge there is a law or something in the U.S. that grants people an amount of around 1300 dollars in such cases. Furthermore there were 7 !!! other flights (nonstop and with a stop at another city) from Chicago to Louisville that evening. What about a car? Its like 300 miles. All they had to do was to communicate properly. Regarding overbooking. Yes it might be uncomfortable. But it always depends on the airline. A few years ago my cousin had a flight with Iberia to New York via Madrid. That flight was overbooked. She, her husband and daughter were offered a flight 4 hours later. That was a direct flight with another airline. They got breakfast at the executive lounge while waiting and per person a voucher for EUR 800.00 for their next Iberia flight. Their flight landed in New York 30 minutes later than their original flight from Madrid. I have heard from other people being upgraded to business class on transatlantic flights. Ever since I secretly hope there is an overbooking on my flights.
  4. And let's face it, those are ego driven events. No one wants to be out shined by someone else. I think this is also the reason why she was never invited to the White House. Not because she is considered too controversial. It was because she is the biggest star on the planet who automatically gets all the attention. I mean, who cares about the president of the USA when she is around?
  5. It's the same with the Medal of Freedom. People underestimate Madonnas achievements. Not just culturally. Also socially. And diplomatically. I mean the reputation of the U.S. is basically ruined at this point and she, who has been vilified and criticized 30 years ago and ever since and seen as something negative (by the general public and those in power) is all of a sudden considered a symbol, a shining beacon, of all the positive things that the U.S. used to stand for.
  6. I'm not religious. But I pray for just another collaboration. Add a string arrangement by Jeremy Lubbock and I can die happy.
  7. They have parties when someone gets chipped? When I read that, the first thing that came to my mind was a scene from the movie Logans Run, when they have to go into the carousel once their "clocks" turn red. That was a celebration as well. Or so they thought.
  8. How convenient that they choose "this decade", when this decade is basically just 6 years in. If you change this to the last 10 years, this list looks quite different when S&S needs to be added. But I guess this didn't fit their narrative.
  9. I don't remember her being mentioned in a book. Of course, she sometimes appears in the thank you notes on albums. Also in movies. I know about Luc Bessons Joan of Arc (I still believe she has the speaking part in "My heart calling", the song that is played during the credits, uncredited of course) and My private Idaho and some documentary about Keith Haring. I'm sure there are a lot of others.
  10. What a sore loser he is. And an irresponsible prick. He still has not understood what his job is about and that he is supposed to be the President of all Americans. Yet again he is putting the blame on everyone else but himself. And saying that Obamacare will explode and that he will let it explode? How cynical of him. Someone of CNN said it right, that's like a fire chief standing before a burning house and and telling the people "Let it burn down". And Trump a great negotiator who gets things done? Yeah right.
  11. This guy is so stupid. The handshake thing was simply disrespectful and when he said that "they both have one thing in common ... being wiretapped by the Obama administration" it was just embarrassing.The look on Merkels face said it all. Say about that woman what you will, but she knows how to play the game. The fact she brought all those managers of German industrial powerhouses with her, basically shut down all of Trumps arguments that the U.S. are somehow the victim of unfair trade or exploited in any way. Especially considering German companies have invested hundreds of billions in the U.S. and employ around 800.000 American workers in solid, well and very well paid manufacturing jobs. Exactly the kind of jobs, Trump wants to bring back to the U.S.. Punishing the very same companies with fees and penalties seems rather absurd.
  12. i can't get over the black lacquered floors in her kitchen/dining room. Imagine a pot or pan falling down.
  13. I'm sure she owns some real nice jewelry. But I think paintings are more her thing if she wants to spoil herself.
  14. ^ This thing is getting more and more embarrassing by the minute. Did anyone see that horrible Spicer guy trying to explain what Trump actually meant? They do really believe people are stupid, don't they?
  15. Care to elaborate what it is you protect? And voting CDU? The constitution grants you the right to vote for whoever you choose. Even for the party that stands for the standstill in social development in Germany in the last decade.
