    Present fires in Eastern Australia. From north of the Arctic Circle to the southern hemisphere, we have seen tremendous wildfires this year, many with loss of life.

    Didnt Australia vote for a Socialist leader? You get what you vote for, just like in Californication...Thanks Moonbeam Brown for his forest mismanagement and the loss of life.. Shame the relatives of the victims dont sue the shit out Brown, for his negligence.

    Did America vote for Trump? No? Did the elitist electoral college select him? Yes? I guess in our case we got what they voted for.

    PS I'd like to see the logic whereby you can blame the Australian forest fires on socialism

    Don't expect logic. It's a right winger's post.

    you need to stop posting, as it makes you look more the idiot that you are. More people in more states voted for President Trump over the sick, crooked, bitch who colluded not only with Russia but the whole liberal, lickspittle, lapdog, media, who with all that, couldn't cross the finish line......again...Give it up moron, your own crooked DNC voted against Bernie and those ex Bernie voters went to Trump...Such stupid twits who vote Democrat.

    Voters didn't want Trump. More than 3 million more voted for Hillary. Now, this is where you start spouting something about the Electoral College. That still doesn't change the fact that more people wanted someone else.

    They've got an evangelical conservative leader, who believes in coal. They certainly have the government they deserve, just like the US.

    Next you will argue that a baseball team should win a game when it gets more hits than the other team.

    No. but in a discussion about hits, it would be a lie to pretend the winning team got more in that case. Trump got 3 million fewer votes. The American voters did not want him to become president. Those are the facts, and there is no way you can spin it to mean anything else.
