As always, you fail to look below the mere surface ;)
Also, you can hardly blame the guy... Of course, he's black, so if you want to...

Recognize the difference now? Probably not...

Either way... Obama was a candidate many people put high hopes and expectations in that were not (always) met... This fires up tensions... (Republicans are not innocent in this matter...) Not a good thing, without a doubt... But when listening to you one gets the impression that the guy is at fault if someone breaks their coffee cup

Btw: IIRC police violence (and resulting deaths) towards blacks also rose...

unfortunately that is also true .... (not that it was not always very alarmingly high...) why? cause someone was promoting division...

British lawmakers will hold a debate on February 20 on a petition signed by more than 1.6 million people calling for a planned state visit by US President Donald Trump to be cancelled to avoid embarrassing Queen Elizabeth.
The debate was called by the Petitions Committee of the lower house of parliament. On the same day, lawmakers will also debate a second petition calling for the state visit to go ahead, which has been signed by more than 100,000 people.
The British government responds to all petitions that gain more than 10,000 signatures and topics are considered for parliamentary debate if they reach 100,000 [source]
:lol: this is getting ridiculous

Waste of time. However it's worth noting the petition has been misinterpreted by most (including the media). They're not saying that Trump shouldn't visit the UK, but rather that he shouldn't be treated to all the pompous gestures of a state visit (meeting the Queen etc.) and should just come to conduct business and leave.

No... Had you dealt with Obama through more than your usual outlets, you'd know that his goal was quite the contrary... On top of that, you seem to fail to recognize that your beloved current president is already more divisive than probably every other president before him...

Mobile roaming fees should be history by the summer, with the European Union having agreed to a steep drop in maximum wholesale roaming prices.

The EU clinched a preliminary deal early today to cap wholesale charges telecom operators pay each other when their customers use their mobile phones abroad, paving the way for the abolition of roaming fees in June. [source]

No more immigrants from the Malta to the US on Trump's orders [source]


And every Maltese Trump sympathiser I know likes him because we know what it's like to deal with excessive immigration... :coffee: (this refers to the relocation of refugees, not Maltese immigrants)

I know...
you know how many did they choose to take... just 3000 since 2004... And I said choose because that is what they exactly do........
they take the best ppl and keep the ***** to us.............. I know first hand...
I knew a guy called Abraham (God Bless him) who used to work with us he was so nice (I think I once posted a photo with him) and a hard working boy.
He now lives and works in Alaska ...
I guess the rest were all like him... good men / women...

I remember that photo :)

I can't comment on who they take as I don't know, and I don't have statistics to be certain but I think probably the US still helped our burden-sharing more than the rest of the EU combined, so it's a bit of a blow.

3000 is still a significant number for us. According to this article in 2013 (first Google result), we had around 18,000 arrive, so that's around 15% to just the US.
