    I thought your test build was funnier. It's unexpected, short and funny.

    You look a lot better without the bleached hair, nohomo. Your wife aged well too! Congrats on the (2?) Kids! I'm guessing based on the time lapse photos

    [–] Best meme from this week.... kirosenn 0 points ago in funny

    Our trade deficit hit record highs back in January and is now starting to stabilize back to the level it was back in 2016. I don't see how he accomplished anything other than putting the deficit back to how it was performing before he took office.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has not shown any willingness to halt the controversial pipeline project, but at times she has indicated at least some skepticism, acknowledging that the project was not an entirely economic one but also of political significance.

    I guess it's good of Trump to bring it up but it certainly doesn't affect the progress of the project.

    Mr. Trump’s claims misrepresent how the alliance of 29 nations works, and exaggerate his role in their military spending.

    North Atlantic Treaty Organization members have not agreed to give the alliance more money, as Mr. Trump’s comment about “raising vast amounts of money” would suggest.

    Rather, each NATO member pledged in 2014 to spend 2 percent of its gross domestic product on its own defense each year by 2024. During the summit meeting in Brussels last week, members reaffirmed their commitment to that pledge.

    Currently, only five countries — the United States, Greece, Estonia, United Kingdom and Latvia — are meeting the 2 percent goal, though eight are expected to this year.

    Throughout his presidency, Mr. Trump has relentlessly pressed NATO members to meet the goal, and he certainly deserves some credit for increased spending.

    “President Trump has been outspoken on this issue, and I thanked him for his leadership when we met at the White House in May,” Jens Stoltenberg, the NATO secretary general, recently wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “The upswing in NATO defense spending over the past year and a half demonstrates that his efforts are making a difference.”

    But Mr. Trump is wrong that these increases occurred “only because of me.” As a share of G.D.P., spending by European members and Canada began to rise before Mr. Trump took office. The most recent report from NATO shows that their annual spending as a share of G.D.P. has steadily increased since 2015, when it was 1.4 percent, to 1.47 percent in 2018.

    The total dollars spent by European countries and Canada also have risen every year over that time period, from $254 billion in 2015, to $256 billion in 2016, to $273 billion in 2017 to $307 billion in 2018.

    So Mr. Trump is also correct that these NATO members are expected to spend about $34 billion more this year than in 2017. But that is part of a yearslong trend of increases.

    I suppose he has some credit for being so persistent but the spending has little to do with his sole effort.

    I almost stopped it but I kept bouncing my leg. Why does watching this give so much anxiety?

    Ah, thank you so much. I had this quote in my head all morning and I couldn't remember the movie. I kept trying to google and all my results were weird movies or song quotes.
