    The new rule in PRSI is we only post about it if it's Trumps fault.

    But isn't that a refreshing change from "we only post about it if it's Obama's fault"?

    Not quite. We've debunked this before via google search results. Would you like me to post results again?

    I'll wait until more information is released. As we all have know all to well - initial reports can lack important information.

    For example, shouting "Allahu Akbar" does not automatically make the attacker a radical islamic terrorist.

    Do we really want to discuss every bloke in mainland Europe who is shot for waving a knife about? We could be some time just dealing with Manchester

    If not radical, then which type of Islamic terrorist does it make them?

    I want to know why every child shot by accident is not reported here all the murder suicides. Seems it is well planned hiding

    Can you put this in multiple choice format as to what it would make them if not a radical Islamic terrorist? Soccer fan perhaps?

    The correct term is partner. Have you taken the time to stop beating your partner.

    Don't assume gender!

    Looks like you struck a nerve. Or a trigger finger.

    You apparently noticed it and created a thread topic from it. Thank you.

    You want a participation trophy? We're probably out of them at the moment.

    Man that's a tough one. I was thinking to post that the Democrats should give Gorsuch a hearing and let Mr. Trump move on to congratulating himself on achieving bipartisan efforts in Congress right off the bat.

    Trying to figure out whether I really want to blame Trump for patting himself on the back; after all it's a lonely job draining the swamp when Congress and one's Cabinet picks are back to loading it up with crocodiles as usual. :p

    How about a compromise on the rule. We blame Trump unless we think it's a fault to lay at the feet of his counselors or the GOP congressional leadership. After all, he's a novice and they're crocodile trainers.

    I'm curious if the Democrats will put on an all out effort now to prevent Gorsuch or wait until a liberal judge needs replacing before they spend their political capital.

    Yes, I saw the story on the news and thought during my browsing here that it was odd no one brought it up since many other such stories hit PRSI within minutes. You can keep whatever participation trophy you seem to think I care about.

    First we aren't a news network if your comment was some conspiracy addled suggestion... Relax Francis.

    Second there are a lot of diminishing factors to this story in the 'if it bleeds it leads' news media.
    Such as:
    • the perp had knives not guns,
    • no explosives either
    • only one wounded, no multiple victims
    • wounded person was a soldier on duty, not visitor
    Fortunately it was very limited, and not well thought out attack.

    Also it looks like the perpetrator was Egyptian, Trump might want to get his white-out and redo that executive order from last weekend. :rolleyes:

    Better yet, build a wall around the US, the USSR had the iron curtain, the US can build the gilded wall.

    I feel sorry for the soldier, but having seen them in Paris (post 9/11 but before 2015) their presence made me feel less comfortable about being there.
