In a nutshell

Posted By Maurice Clark

Hi James,

I think I would agree with Jim... Trump's re-election hopes depend to a large extent on whom the democrats nominate as their candidate.  A centrist/moderate would likely wipe the floor with Trump.  Then again, there was a poll not so long back indicating that 62% of republican votes would not change their vote for Trump no matter what he did.

2020 could be an interesting year!

2020???  What happened????  Where did the past 20 years go?  cwy

PS:-  here is what the BBC made of today's hearings.

Posted By Maurice Clark

Here is the ABC's take on the hearings.

"With the last of the scheduled public impeachment hearings coming to a close, three things are now clear.

    The Trump administration did seek a 'quid pro quo' from Ukraine.
    The diplomats and staffers involved are trying to save themselves.
    US President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani are at the centre of the scheme.

But three key questions remain unanswered.

    Was any of this an impeachable offence?
    Did the hearings change the minds of voters?
    And will the final outcome advantage Democrats or Republicans?"

Plans, Blueprints Wanted

Posted By Maurice Clark

Hi Mark,

If you do find the blueprints somewhere, I would be interested in seeing them.  Particularly for the roof and rollers.  I am looking at trying to build a ROR observatory myself soon.

Cheers,

G'Day Jim,

Thanks for the link.  Interesting website.

Still, polls are only partly useful.  What really matters in the election is turnout; particularly in the battleground states.

Cheers,

Maurice

Darian,

Stock markets around the world have seen massive drops over the past week or so.  The one in your own country today had its biggest drop since the GFC.  Oil prices have dropped by over 20%. Airlines around the world are canceling flights.  For example, Qantas booking to Asia are down over 30%.  Italy has now joined China in imposing a total lockdown following a jump in deaths from the virus.  Are you really going to blame all this on "left-leaning media"?  Perhaps you should try looking at different news outlets.  I would recommend BBC and ABC.  They are respected around the world for their reporting.

You should try reading this one.  It is an interesting take by the BBC's North American editor.
