I got bored and a little buzzed and decided to average out the amount of hours per week Trump spends golfing. Granted this could include him just being at his resort or another, doesn't mean he is golfing the entire time.

The magic number is 13 hours a week
Someone else already beat you to it:

"I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." --Donald J. Trump, August, 2016

Well the thing is, most of his time has been on weekends and holidays.... Is that really bad? Kind of a normal working schedule I suppose.
To me, it isn't so bad that he's playing golf on weekends.  What's bad is that he's spending taxpayer money at his own golf courses.

I have mixed feelings on this.  He has cost the tax payer over 100 million golfing.  But this analysis really doesn't take into account the harm we're avoiding from distracting Trump for about a third of his presidency.

He can't golf and do shit like withdraw from the WHO at the same time.

So, I'm confused,  we don't get to see how Trump Org was laundering Russian Mob money through Deutshe Bank until after he gets re-elected ( possibly).

Seems like a win for Trump,  why are the media all saying the opposite?

Its a win because even tho we won't see it until after his election, we will likely see it.  So either way, he's dreading that day.  But it wouldn't matter to his core or his enemies anyway, unless he had something ultra damning in there.

Plus, if he is found guilty if money laundering, he'll have some jail time waiting.

Yeah let's expose it when he know longer has the protection of the Presidency. It wouldn't matter if he was the biggest tax cheat in history, his repugnicans party would never hold him to account just as they did in his impeachment trial.

Once he's out he will face the music. If nature should kindly assassinate him before he does, then history will not forget his crimes.

If he dies while in office of natural causes, anything less than 20 years will be "OMG!  You're attacking him now?  Too soon!  Have you no decency?"

I don't care that he plays golf. I care that the right wing media lost their shit about the cost every time Obama played golf or went on any kind of vacation, but they don't make a peep about all the money Trump is spending.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Except it wasn't. 

The server in question wasn't Hillary's it was the DNC server,  and none of the material was classified, it was internal party communications,  like come to Ping Pong Pizza for a party on Friday bring the kids.

Oh, wait,  you were trolling Fox,  sorry, as you were.

A better question would be why did they release it on the same day as the access hollywood tapes, and who was in the middle of co-ordinating with wikileaks....   You got it,  Roger Stone who lied about it to congress and should be in jail.

Whoa.  Now I know you're not a Trump support but I've got to say that's a pretty good deal.  You might want to follow up on that.

This guy gets it.  Except it wasn't Deep Thought, it was Arthur Dent playing scrabble with illiterate cavemen that got the question.

I thought that this was one of the funniest things I had ever read. It took Deep Thought 7 1/2 million years to come up with the answer "42", then admitted that he hadn't heard the question. He then thought for another 10 million years about what the question was. Which was "what is 6 times 9". By coming up with a question that the ultimate answer to was wrong, I believed Mr. Adams to be the most insightful man on the planet when it came to understanding how the Universe actually works. Ė Scott Gordon Jun 5 '13 at 16:11


Douglas Adams just wanted to make the point that

"... something was fundamentally wrong with the universe"

by having a question which gives the wrong answer. 

A bit like some of the discussions on this forum. :)

No, I meant the bit about "is that your IQ".

And technically Arthur wasn't of the native humans that evolved on Eath so Ford thought it was a distorted answer.


Also also:
42 was chosen by Adams because in ASCII 42 is * which can be anything.
He was big on computers.  I have the book "Salmon of Doubt".  Good stuff in there.
