At least he was fired for cause.
trump never did like his scrub brush moustache.
That's 3 in 3 years.

One hallmark of a good "manager" is the ability to hire and retain good, capable and smart people.

Do like the way the White House (and a couple of States) have jumped on the Vape issue.
Ban them .Control them. There are suspicions that they might be involved in the deaths of 6 young people.

Meanwhile on the gun control front....oh - yeah - well - nothing.......never mind.

Canada has seen a sharp rise in the number of shootings since 2013 yet here you are complaining about the US and our problems.

Hypocrisy at its finest.

How many shootings, woundings, deaths are there each day, week, month or year, per capita in USA, in comparison to Canada ?

Yes, Canada has seen an increase in the gun homicide rate in the past 5 years however a quick look at the past 30 years of data would suggest that there is no cause for alarm, the recent rise is in keeping with the longer term trend of ebbs and flows.

Unlike the US, the response from both sides of the political spectrum in Canada has been to address the issue as a “significant public-safety” concern.

The gun homicide rate in Canada is still less than 1 tenth that of the US.

America is unique in the developed world in the way it responds to gun violence.

Trump is supposedly considering having Mike Pompeo for both, in his current position and Bolton's replacement. So when he fires Pompeo, it will be a one for two accomplishment.

Reel your neck back in mate. I know the US has a problem and I do my part. Thing is other countries, such as Canada have the same issues, but sooner than focus on his own nation's concerns, Meadow goes ostrich and focuses on what he can't influence rather than what he can in his own nation.

A handy distraction for him.

We don't have the same problem with guns as the US but knife killings and woundings are increasing all the time in the UK. I can tell you it is almost entirely drugs related but there is an elephant in the room we mustn't mention.

I think we are certain to be the World leader for eternity in the gun deaths league. Glad we can all agree 40,000 firearms death PER YEAR is a "Problem", but no, by all means lets ban vaping after 6 deaths. Something. something, .something...NRA lobbyists... something. something, .something...Corrupt politicians... something. something...something...the price of gun profits is acceptable at 40,000 human lives per year... something. something, .something...git yer hands off ma gun.

If every gun owners was to be responsable like you are West Coast, there would be no issue, none!
Unfortunately, the less controlled it is the more [email protected] can have access to it (not counting gangsters, they don't care about rules)
And that's were the right to bare arms hit a snag.

Kind of make me think about road death rate.
Nigeria: Zero control in this place! Any one and his mother in law can declare himself/herself driver of a piece of moving wreck.
France: They tough it up a lot on speed rules amongst other things! From 14000 road death a year in the 70/80's to around 4000 now! With three time the amount of cars.

More rules, less death it seems...


Sorry, poor exemple, back to the US Politics Hamsterwheel.

For all my efforts to be safe, I’m rewarded by politicians wanting to take my weapons.

Aint going to happen ever.
But maybe one day America will pass legislation that makes it more difficult for nutters, paranoid schizophrenics and sexually repressed white boys to get military style weapons.
Any country where a nutter can walk in off the street and buy an AR weapon without ID should not be called a civilized society.

Why, I know the answer and so do you. Are you really suggesting its not possible for citizen to buy an AR without ID?
"Have you done ANY research into ethnicity of the majority of shooters ?"
Regards to AR or military style weaponry as per my post above, the typical public mass shooter in Amerika is a middle aged white guy.

Hey, if you move quickly you might get in early on some prime real estate deals. Looking at the tweet tonight from the orange toddler, it looks like the Pentagon and its grounds will soon be up for sale. Quite smart really when you think about it, no need for a military infrastructure now we are getting operational direction direct from the House of Saud. If you can't believe the guys who provided most of the 9/11 hijackers, developed Bin Laden, butchered a Washington Post Journalist and burnt his dismembered remains, have been trying to raise oil prices for the last 8 years and have been slaughtering Yemeni children for 5 years, who can you believe? Thank goodness that Mike Pompeo is such an upstanding, trustworthy guy.
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Sunday evening tweeted that the US has "reason to believe that we know" who is responsible for an attack on a Saudi Arabian oil field and the country is "locked and loaded depending on verification" following the crippling strike.
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump said.

A Freudian Slip maybe?

Rest assured Israel, Saudi and the US along with the rulers of several smaller Gulf States will be working overtime to convince the world community that Iran is to blame.

And then I guess we just follow the tried and true script. Evil doers, mushroom clouds on the horizon, god is on our side, we didn’t chose this war followed by oops turns out it was an intelligence failure.

All it requires is an amnesiac general public completely lacking in critical reasoning perpetually blinded by patriotism to not question our leaders motives and hey presto, the next round of the resource wars will be underway.
