But then the police here think they need Tanks, M16A4 fully automatic weapons, drones, bombers, orbital strike platforms......

When in reality, 90% of the police can barely handle a small caliber pistol safely, and they are so poorly trained they are not much better than a roaming gang of thugs.

easy solution, raise the taxes. if your taxes are not high enough to pay for Fire,Police and road maintenance then you should absolutely pay more.
If your taxes are not being used for that but instead, holiday decorations, more pay for someone to choose to buy more decorations then it's time to start voting for officials more wisely.

Yes, Yes, I know the irony of an American saying to vote more wisely to another country.... I'm not happy with our Toddler in Chief, but then he is not much different than the ones we have in congress and local government all over here. Recently in my home town we had one of the commissioners demand that a law be passed so that anyone in government can not be criticized or go to jail.

It seems that we either elect very evil people, or stupid ones that have never read the constitution. From my experience, it's the latter, only the dumb want to be in political office.

This!

I am literally getting cable and hbo for $10 a month and I'm the lowest tier internet at 25mb/s now.

I used to pay $140 a month.. and they kept moving the price up. At $190/month I said to heck with that. now I pay $68 a month.

Another factor... my wireless is now down to $65 for 16gb with an 8gb hot spot. Plus ubiquitous free wifi at merchants in my area.

If that goes up to $65 for 32gb and 16gb hot spot, I will consider completely cutting cable.

But I really don't like paying over about 5 hours minimum wage for monthly cable.

The countries banned were

Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Iraq was removed from the second travel ban.

Both trump and his senior advisors openly said in interviews they intended to write a muslim ban, and that they were asked to write muslim ban that would pass legal muster.

Your conway-esque pivot/lie by omission fails.
