I love the American sense of prudery.
They want to be outrageous and challenging, but can't quite bring themselves to actually spell out the word f**k for fear of offending.

I know, right? My favorite is that they just cannot bring themselves to utter the word “died”. It’s always “Gerald passed.”

When I hear that, I have to bite my tongue so I don’t say “Wow! Great! What was his final grade?”

One of my pet gripes is the phrase 'They gave their lives'.
Did they fuck.
Their lives were taken.

The wake generated by other boats caused five boats to sink on a Texas lake during a parade in support of President Donald Trump, according to the Travis County Sheriff's Office.
The weather on Lake Travis, which is west of Austin, was calm Saturday, but the large number of boats moving together produced large waves, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

"It was like an ocean out there. I'm surprised I survived it. We didn't make it all the way around the parade, because it was just too much," Danielle Severn told CNN affiliate KXAN. "The boats were mainly just teeter-tot-erring. A lot of them took on water by the nose. After that it was over, especially for the smaller boats."
The event began at noon Saturday, and the sheriff's office says they began to receive calls "almost immediately." The sheriff's office responded to 15 distress calls, and a local towing company said there were "three additional reports of boats taking on water," according to the sheriff's office.

Of the five boats that sank, three have been towed out and two others remain on the bottom of Lake Travis, the sheriff's office said.
"Most boats that were taking on water, or even fully submerged," the sheriff's office said, "were able to be hooked up and towed before they sank to the bottom of the lake."

The boats that sank were small boats. They had no right being in a magnificent beautiful parade.

Someone tell Eric that just because you say something's dead doesn't make it so, like Ross and Rachel's break!

Someone remind him about the United States Football league...

If only the NFL had allowed him to buy a franchise 20 years ago, it would have spared us all of this.
Then he would just be an embarrassment to the league and not the country.

Trump is following Hillary’s mega successful strategery from last time around.
He’s preaching to the base, smearing the opposition and ignoring the middle.

It'll be interesting to see what money Trump does use now that donations are dwindling. Maybe he'll siphon some more off from the defence budget, because I don't think he's the bigly billionaire he claims to be.
