Isn't this all about 'just ignore the porn star behind the curtain' though?

It's pure delusion to imagine that drug dealers created the opiod abuse problems in the US.

But them so many americans are willing to beleive that global warming is a lie and the earth is flat, so I guess this is no different.

If you've ever read L. F. B. as an adult and realized how sarcastic he was, yes. I think Donald J. Trump would fit perfectly in Oz. Squeeze him between the Wizard and H. M. Wogglebug T. E. Nothing but a Humbug if you ask me. :D

on the other hand, there are much more who just dont care if god did create the earth about 6K years ago or if global warming does exist, just because these questions/facts dont affect their immediate life ... whats more important is: where/how can I make a few dollars more today/tomorrow ??

Ssshhhh.... Don't tell DJT that the world is round, that things are heating up, that we really did land on the moon and he's not God's gift to to the USA. Why he's got all the proof he needs from Brightbart and Fox News that it all that is just "Fake News!". :gruebel: Right?

They are saying that Trump knows of the risks on having a meeting with Kim, I don't think he does as if he did he would be running (lol Trump running) a mile from the idea. If the meeting does happen, I do think Kim will run circles around him as he has been taught on these sort of things all of his life and Trump has never done anything like it in his life, he has no idea what he is doing and that's dangerous. He will probably walk out of the meeting having sold Nuclear weapons to Kim, on the promise that he would not use them.
I'm not saying he is a Russian asset, I'm saying he sat on his asset when he was supposed to be confronting Putin.

Yeah, I could see Trump making a deal with Kim; I'll sell you Seoul REAL cheap... Easy payments. If you toss in your nukes, heck I'll build you a hotel and golf course...Deal? :roll:

What constitutes many though? Is it in the 1%? I doubt it, in fact I doubt there are any flat-earthers at all, I think they are just trolls with nothing much to get attention otherwise. Sure there might be the one or the other "follower" that also has nothing else to cling on, much in the vein of people (using the term loosely here) like Alex Jones, which are fully aware that they are trolling and exploiting people, those are not really "believers" they just provide the sound-bites people crave for.

As with many a troll these days, they do tend to be loud, they make up for the lack of numbers with effort, one has to give them that.

If South park says it's so, then it must be true, surely.

In my non-professional opinion, that's not what the "and/or" inclusion means. I would think that's exactly why that wording was chosen. By choosing that wording, Trump, under the pseudonym defined in an attachment, wouldn't have to sign for the agreement to be binding. In fact, even if Trump didn't sign, the agreement is still binding between Daniels and "EC." Trumps signature isn't necessary to act as a guarantor of her signature nor is it needed to bring the document into force. It does, after all, have two party's signatures on it and one of those parties is an and/or representative.

At best, she has a binding contract between herself and EC that is still enforceable even if Trump didn't sign it.

IMO, the only way to null this agreement is to somehow prove the illegitimacy of the "and/or" parties of the first part by proving that the attorney did not have any power to make that formal association, thus deligitimizing his ability to act on behalf of Trump. Even if that could be done, he could still be separated by that and/or statement and the agreement would simply be between Daniels and himself. (Though, I think misrepresenting himself as an authorized signatory for and/or might invalidated the document. Dunno, not an attorney. :) )
One other thing you do realise that EC was the initials for the fake company, you sound like you think that EC is a person.
That doesn't matter, at least in the US. Even though it's an LLC, its treated as an entity/person in legal matters. Though, the LLC has some specific limitations as to what protections it provides, so it may be possible to reach past that. For "corporations," the protections/advantages are much broader and fairly inseparable from being an entity or "person" in their own right in legal matters.
Anyway enough of that, we will see what happens but I still don't think she has a leg to stand on as she took the cash.
That's another important point - If nothing else, she acted in all ways as if the document was valid and she was complying with it voluntarily. She got paid... She took the money... She signed stuffs stating what she would do in exchange for that money. It's kind of difficult to "cry foul" after calmly walking out of an office with a purse full of cash in exchange for one's written or verbal agreement to not say "disparaging things" about someone. The first question the judge would likely ask would be "What did you think you were receiving this money for?"
...It's like the saying, when the cats away the mice will play. So if this meeting is ever to happen, where do you think they would hold the meeting.
I don't think he'd do a face-to-face, but if he was going to, it'd be at the DMZ, where other such "official" meetings take place: Example article

I think the word we are looking for here is "ignorant".

Which brings its own fruits - If one doesnt care if the Earth is flat, then one elects the government that cant decide if the Earth is flat. A trickle up stupidity.

Hey now here's an idea for a game mod! Trump's World! A flat quad polygon spinning in space! A real two dimensional worldview! Since he's on record as adverse to globes. He's sneered at "Globalization", called people "Globalists" and denies "Global Warming". I might just give him a planet of his dreams with four cleanly defined boarders that he doesn't have to build walls around. Best of all there will still be nasty "Aliens" out there to rant against and denigrate so his 1 or 2% of true followers can set in their caves and shake their fists. I have a feeling that this flat world would fit in prefectly somewhere off of Bad Debt and Ministry of Finance. Is this thread starting to get back on topic? Are the Teladi taking over? Stay tuned.

Seems like Trump has decided that its a risk for National Security to allow Broadcom to buy Qualcomm so he decided to veto it.

Special Report just came on. Rex Tillerson got canned as Secretary of State (Gee could it have been him going ballistic at the boss over ffering to talk to Kim? :roll: ) CIA chief now going to take over State Department! As if there wasn't enough talk about spies in our embassies not Trump's codifying it I suupose.

Edit: We're there any adults in that room in the first place? :P

Its also amusing that he was fired shortly after being highly critical of Russia and directly implicating them in the attempted assassination in the UK.
I mean its probably coincidental, but Donald sure doesn't do himself any favours with such timing does he?
There is also the possibility that Tillerson already knew he was fired when he made the comments, so perhaps an element of: "Finally, I can speak my bloody mind on Russia!!"
