    My only worry is that the arrests don't spread to the UK.

    Incredible hubris if so. If the republicans lose the mid terms, they lose everything. If they have more shit to throw but opt not to do so, then I can see them sorely regretting it in 3 weeks time.
    It strikes me they probably don't have anything else.

    You destroy your enemy in war. You don't wound them and hope that they will crawl off into the woods to die quietly.
    If nothing major comes out about the Dems and Hil at least a week prior to the election then this Q stuff is all guff. Fun guff but guff none the less.
    Has Q gone quiet because he has nothing else to offer? Or just got bored? Or has Q been deposed of?
    Or maybe Q is a narcissist and the ultimate punishment of a narcissist questioned is to cut off all contact with you? Then you beg the narc to return. Eventually the narc comes back... but only if you promise never to doubt again. The threat being that if you doubt me ever again, if only for a moment, I will go and never return.

    True but how risky can you get, not maximising your chances so close to the election. Imagine what might happen should one big story that favours the Dems come out in the next few days - could be an individual republican senator caught up in financial irregularities, or paedophilia for example. If the republicans really do have ammo and don't use it, they may come to regret it badly.

    I'm not.
    From the article you posted, @JackieO (which was very interesting - thank you!):
    If there is a swamp, then this whole god-awful mess has grown out of "leverage"; out of one person or another having unusual power over someone else because of the dirt that can be dished ... whether that's knowledge of dodgy financial dealings, political corruption, connections to some currently-demonised state, paedophilia, or whatever. Then the power that that leverage brings creates a huge incentive to lure people into doing evil so that you have that over them when they climb up the ranks. Then, finally, to keep it going you have to create (or would strongly benefit from creating) new and unprecedented evils in the world, so that there are sufficiently damning sins available, on tap, to get your future allies ensnared in.
    I'd prefer Trump not to get involved in screwing around with democratic processes in other states, whether or not I agree with his aims: the end does not justify the means.
    I'm not trying to come across as critical of you, JackieO (nor TMT), but I'd prefer Trump to start shining a bright light into dark places sooner rather than later, and if that involves a personal sacrifice to let go of some leverage (or even some seats at mid-term), then that is the cost that a great statesman should pay. I fear that his character as bit of a bully (albeit an intelligent and inventive one) is going to hold him back from acting righteously (if I may use that somewhat loaded term, as I can't think of a better one).
    By the way, I haven't come across the phrase "clear beyond cavil" before. It has a nice ring to it. If it's not a typo, where does it come from?

    I doubt it's pronounced Ingénue, if she's been round the block even half as many times as her Mum.

    Is this related to the two recent kinder egg stories discussed on here, or a separate thing all together?

    blobloblob got a reaction from maudit in School discipline   
    I think the kids are about the same now as my generation in the seventies and eighties. One big difference is the modern practice of "inclusivity" whereby the proper mentalists are retained in mainstream schools to salve the conscience of those virtue signalling policy makers who send their own kids to private or the more well healed type of state schools.
    Teachers nowadays, on the other hand, are much better behaved than they used to be.
