    This is news, linked and sourced in the article, directly related to an ongoing American political controversy, i.e. the subject of the thread.

    If it doesn't interest you, feel free to pass it by.

    I'm sorry, is it in the way of making fun of Trump for wanting to be like France?
    This is a discussion forum. We discuss things. The first two steps of that when a news article is involved is normally dropping a link and then putting forward your own view on it.

    So I say again:

    Yes. And?

    your snippet consists of the FBI talking to the president, probably to keep him up to date on if and/or when he should dump Clinton or not for political expediency.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    You bitched about the Bundeswehr being next to useless, something I agree with, fuck even our highest leadership thinks so. And when I ask for something that could be part of the Bundeswehr being useful again, you bring shit like this.

    Make up your God damn mind.

    Yes I get it, it was a joke. Just it wasn't funny at all.

    That's an amazing name for a German porn star.
    Well you call it goose step, but that sounds just silly, and Stechschritt sounds a bit too martial (stabbing step literally).

    Tapapapatalk
    Yeah we call it goose step, but the literal translation is "Prussian Drill", right?

    The Lusty Adventures of the Prussian Drill sounds amazing.
    Prussian drill step. That would indeed be quite the porn name.

    That just sounds like a 'specialist' variant of dubstep with sounds sourced from a rapement.

    I've already started. My primary interest in articles like this is why people seem to squirm so much when you try to pin them down on their own analysis of them.

    Discussion usually starts by someone making an argument. Could you do it, since you posted the link? Or at least explain to me why should I open the link?

    I mean the following is not much of a starting point for discussion
    Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.

    Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that each of its molecules contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds.

    Strictly speaking, water refers to the liquid state of a substance that prevails at standard ambient temperature and pressure; but it often refers also to its solid state (ice) or its gaseous state (steam or water vapor).

    People sure like to do that.

    Nowhere in your quote do you cover the oppressive power of water over vulnerable people. It's a sin of omission to leave out drowning statistics and your pro-water agenda is plain for everyone to see.

    You don't need my analysis to form your own on the merits of this article or any other.

    I know what I think. It's far more interesting to see what you all think, or not, as the case may be.

    My primary interest in posting articles such as this as twofold: To see what my fellows here think, if anything. And to see if you discuss it in any form.

    The article makes it's point rather clearly: Was the President involved in the Clinton Email investigation (he claimed he was not if I recall), and if so, was he involved in a way that would be considered inappropriate or otherwise would have biased the investigation or investigators.

    What do you need to hear from me to comment on that question exactly?

    Okay, I'll bite.

    What makes you think the message is at all related to the Clinton emails? We're just given a message exchanged by two agents and Fox news simply attach it to the Clinton emails without any indication that the message is at all related to that.

    If it were, it would be easy to state that in the next few days, Comey was interviewed especially re: Clinton emails, but no such link is given. So as a critical reader, I wonder why the message is linked to Clinton emails in the Fox news story?

    Hence, my question: why do you want us to discuss this? Do you have something more to add that would add veracity to the interpretation put forward by Fox?

    Maybe they should stop taking said drugs?

    There is nothing to "bite" on. The article is what it is. If you want to know more, I would suggest you read the source material FOX links in the article.

    I wonder how many of those drug policy professionals are part of the problem that made opioids so easy to get. This all mostly kicked off from a shift in policy that encouraged opiate prescription for every minor ouchy.
