  1. I found courage in her speaking out against her own community. Yes, my post was about her.
  2. Do you have a link to an actual report on the cause of death? I haven't seen one but that doesn't mean there's not one that has been released. I believe Chauvin's actions were certainly contributory in Floyd's death, if not directly responsible. But I'll entertain an opposing view if backed up by a legitimate report.
  3. Be that as it may, there's still no excuse for Derek Chauvin's approach to his police work. And I'm a hard-core conservative police supporter whose father and sister were career cops.

  5. I used to pity the stupid.....now I realize they are incurable.
  6. Real Clear Politics: Here are Joe Biden’s six most egregious COVID-19 lies: 1. President Trump called coronavirus a hoax Editing President Trump out of context is Democrats’ favorite way to exploit this national emergency for political purposes. Biden’s campaign took two separate statements made by the president at a rally to make it look like he said, “Coronavirus, this is their new hoax.” If you go through the transcript of the president’s statements that night, it is clear that it never happened. President Trump rightfully said the politicization of the crisis is a hoax, just like the Russia witch hunt and the impeachment charade. The Washington Post even awarded Biden four Pinocchios for manipulating the video. But President Trump never said, and never would say, the disease itself is a hoax. 2. The Trump administration rejected WHO coronavirus test kits During the March 15 presidential debate, Biden asserted the Trump administration “refused to get coronavirus testing kits from the World Health Organization,” while attacking the president for his handling of the COVID-19 response. The truth? WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said, “No discussion occurred between WHO and CDC about WHO providing COVID-19 tests to the United States.” How could President Trump reject something that was never offered? 3. Trump eliminated entities responsible for global health security and biodefense On March 19, Biden tweeted, “The Obama-Biden Administration set up the White House National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense to prepare for future pandemics like COVID-19. Donald Trump eliminated it.” This characterization, however, completely distorts what happened. After President Trump took office, the NSC established the counterproliferation and biodefense directorate, which included global health and biodefense. Tim Morrison, who ran the new directorate, claimed this change made America’s biodefense response even stronger. 4. Trump made no effort to get medical professionals to China At the end of March, during an interview with Anderson Cooper, Biden said, “You should get into China and get our experts there. We have the best in the world. Get them in so we know what is actually happening. There was no effort to do that.” However, on January 6, the Trump administration began offering to send a CDC team to China, one week after China publicly acknowledged the virus. On January 7, the CDC set up its coronavirus incident management system before the first death was reported and while China was still claiming there was no evidence the virus could spread from human to human. And on January 8, CDC representatives visited Wuhan. 5. Trump told governors they were on their own in getting medical equipment During a CNN town hall, Joe Biden said President Trump told governors they were on their own in getting medical equipment. The problem? That’s not what the president said. Although many liberal news outlets ran with the first half of President Trump’s quote, “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” the second half of the quote clearly said, “[The federal government] will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.” Biden knew about the entire quote nine days before he repeated the lie on national television. 6. Trump slashed the Centers for Disease Control budget During an interview on ABC’s “This Week” in early March, Joe Biden asserted. “They’ve cut the — the Centers for Disease Control. They’ve cut the funding for — they’ve tried to cut the funding for NIH, the National Institute of Health.” He recently doubled down on his argument on Twitter. It’s important to note, however, that the Obama administration tried to cut the CDC’s budget five out of its eight years in the White House. In reality, the CDC’s budget is 7% larger now than under President Obama’s final years in office. History proves Joe Biden’s failed pandemic responses. While he likes to tout his leadership with handling the 2014 Ebola crisis for how he would lead the country through COVID-19, many former Obama officials have said Biden was not at the center of the Ebola response. Additionally, during the 2009 H1N1 crisis, administration officials repeatedly had to walk back false or misleading statements Biden gave about the virus. There is no good reason for Joe Biden to consistently lie to the American public. Perhaps it’s more of his senior moments that prove he has no concept of reality. Or maybe it’s just a failed attempt to stay visible during this crisis.
  7. https://www.gazettenet.com/Columnist-Jay-Fleitman-35536697 Three new video clips of Joe Biden surfaced on television news this week. In one of them, he was talking to three interviewers when he related a recent medical encounter he had in which a nurse leaned over and whispered in his ear that if anything medically serious would happen to him, that she could breathe up through his nose and bring him back to health. He found this to be amazing. I found this to be shocking. It is not clear what this medical encounter was about, it is not clear that it even happened, but it was clearly bizarre.
  8. Answer my fucking question! They won't be shot if they don't resist! Why can't you fucking idiots understand that?
  9. How is not believing a questionable birth certificate "racist"? 105% of the African American vote? You do understand that all black Americans are not "African American", right?
  10. Your entire premise is so full of shit I can smell it through the internet! Do you think blacks may have an interest in not being shot by other blacks? That's where most of their shooting deaths are coming from. An those black deaths are increasing in places where cops actions are restricted or they are being defunded. Why don't you wake the fuck up?!
  11. Ummm...maybe because not everything is about race? Provide factual evidence Trump is a racist.
  12. And yet, today, there are blacks, and white-guilters demanding reparations from people who are being held responsible for what their ancestors may have done, to be given to people who were never slaves. Slavery ended here in 1865......generations ago. Statues are being defaced and torn down because the people they represent were slave owners. Utterly moronic!
  13. We may actually agree on something. PACs are a pox. But we can't get rid of them now. In my "perfect world" only persons can vote, so only only persons should be able to donate, and the donation limit should be relatively small so as not to allow those with great wealth to have any significantly greater influence on candidates. No contributions from organizations of any kind. Why not? Because an organization cannot cast a vote. Organizations can bend the politicians' ears all they want, but no money, Period. Fat friggin' chance!
  14. https://www.dailywire.com/news/teachers-openly-fret-parents-might-hear-them-brainwashing-children Matthew R. Kay, an educator and author of a book on “how to lead meaningful race conversations in the classroom,” worried that “conservative parents” would be able to interfere with the “messy work” of indoctrinating children into critical race theory, gender theory, and other left-wing dogmas. Editor’s Note: Read the entire thread below: So, this fall, virtual class discussion will have many potential spectators — parents, siblings, etc. — in the same room. We’ll never be quite sure who is overhearing the discourse. What does this do for our equity/inclusion work? How much have students depended on the (somewhat) secure barriers of our physical classrooms to encourage vulnerability? How many of us have installed some version of “what happens here stays here” to help this? While conversation about race are in my wheelhouse, and remain a concern in this no-walls environment — I am most intrigued by the damage that “helicopter/snowplow” parents can do in the host conversations about gender/sexuality. And while “conservative” parents are my chief concern — I know that the damage can come from the left too. If we are engaged in the messy work of destabilizing a kid’s racism or homophobia or transphobia — how much do we want their classmates’ parents piling on? It’s important to note that while some teachers responded to Kay’s comments with the appropriate level of horror and disgust, many others chimed in to share their own strategies for brainwashing during a pandemic. One teacher said she’d also been “thinking about” the problem Kay described, and had decided that she’d ask students about their preferred pronouns via survey — though she still worries that “caregivers” might see it and learn something about their children that they weren’t supposed to know. Another teacher said that students last semester would sometimes “type secrets into the chat” whenever the discussion turned to “anti-racism and gender inclusive content.” Another complained that a white parent— she made sure to specify “white” — in her district recorded a Zoom class and “filed a complaint against the teacher for an anti-racist read aloud (saying the teacher’s commentary was inappropriate and biased).” This, the teacher says, “is going to be an issue.” . . . And these are just the comments that were captured in screenshots before the tweets were all made private. Presumably, there is more where this came from. A lot more. Several points must be made in response. First, classrooms are certainly not “safe places” for children to be “vulnerable.” Students may say and do things when they are with their peers in school that they would not say and do at home, but only a fool who doesn’t understand the first thing about child psychology and the effects of peer pressure would assume that the child’s at-school version of himself is the most authentic, much less the most healthy. The pressure to conform to the values and opinions of your peers in the classroom is immense, and often suffocating. There is a reason why rejection and alienation by peers has contributed to a true epidemic of suicide among young people. . . . Second, an adult keeping a secret with a child, and helping the child conceal that secret from his parent — especially when the secret has anything to do with sexuality — is acting in a way that is nothing short of predatory. If you heard a strange man on the playground whisper to your child, “this will just be our little secret,” you would assume that the man is some kind of sex offender. Does this behavior suddenly transform from disturbing to admirable if the strange man is a teacher? No, it doesn’t. But this is the sort of license society has given to teachers, on the the theory that they cannot do the work of educating unless they have more power over, and intimate knowledge of, their students than the students’ own parents. That brings us, finally, to point three, which is that a public school teacher is not supposed to be, and should not try to be, educator, parent, shaman, spiritual guide, therapist, friend, confidant, and sex counselor, all rolled into one. He or she is meant to fill only the first role on that list, and only in the subject the teacher has been assigned to teach. A child’s actual parents only come to be viewed as “dangerous” interlopers and intrusive “outsiders” when teachers begin to view themselves and the school system as the true guardians and conservators of the children that are temporarily in their care. And that, ultimately, is the problem with the modern education system. Children are not old enough to be emancipated. They cannot yet go out and live their own lives. They cannot make every decision for themselves. They must belong to someone — not owned like objects but cared for and protected like the vulnerable human beings they are. The fundamental question is who do they belong to. Different cultures in different times and places have had different answers to this question. . . . Only one of these visions is healthy, natural, and humanizing. Only one can properly facilitate a child’s emotional, mental, intellectual, and spiritual growth. The school system doesn’t just have a wrong and harmful idea of what education is — it has a wrong and harmful idea of what a child is, and what its fundamental role in a child’s life is supposed to be. And that is why I will not send my kids into its clutches. Neither should you. (Excerpt from Daily Wire. Article by Matt Walsh. Photo from Getty Images.
  15. Know WTF you're talking about before you post such crap:Tolerance is NOT acceptance, which is what many uninformed believe. tol•er•ate tŏl′ə-rāt″ ► transitive verb To refrain from interfering with or prohibiting (something undesirable or outside one's own practice or beliefs); allow or permit. transitive verb To recognize and respect (the rights, beliefs, or practices of others). transitive verb To accept or be patient regarding (something unpleasant or undesirable); endure: synonym: endure.
  16. In June and July, Fox News was the highest-rated television channel in the prime-time hours of 8 to 11 p.m. Not just on cable. Not just among news networks. All of television. The average live Fox News viewership in those hours outstripped cable rivals like CNN, MSNBC and ESPN, as well as the broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC, according to Nielsen. That three-hour slot is a narrow but significant slice of TV real estate, and it is exceedingly rare for a basic-cable channel to outrank the Big Three broadcasters, which are available in more households and offer a wider variety of programming. Even the return of live sports did little to stop the momentum: The Fox News programs hosted by Mr. Carlson and Sean Hannity drew more live viewers than competing baseball and basketball games, including a Yankees-Nationals matchup on Opening Day. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/09/business/media/fox-news-ratings.html
  17. And the proof that this bitch is on a political rampage is this from the AP: “It’s clear that the NRA has been failing to carry out its stated mission for many, many years and instead has operated as a breeding ground for greed, abuse and brazen illegality,” she said at a news conference. “Enough was enough. We needed to step in and dissolve this corporation.” In a statement, NRA President Carolyn Meadows labeled James a “political opportunist” pursuing a “rank vendetta” with an attack on its members’ Second Amendment rights. “You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle,” said Meadows, who announced a countersuit in federal court in Albany that could set the stage for a drawn-out legal battle lasting well past November’s election. The New York lawsuit made only civil claims, but James said the investigation was ongoing and any criminal activity discovered would be referred to prosecutors and the Internal Revenue Service." Now pay attention here: She claims there is "brazen illegality" and then says "any criminal activity discovered would be referred to prosecutors" . That's putting the cart before the horse. The proof she has no evidence of "brazen illegality" is in her lawsuit. It a civil suit. If she has evidence of "brazen illegality" then file your fucking charges or STFU! That said, if there is money shenanigans happening in the NRA, then I want those involved held responsible and prosecuted if necessary. But this lunatic bitch has no business trying to dissolve a private citizens' organization.

  19. You are an American who is not terribly bright. Cain grew up in Georgia and graduated from Morehouse College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Cain received a master of science in computer science from Purdue University in 1971 while he also worked full-time as a ballistics analyst for the U.S. Department of the Navy as a civilian.
  20. Trump attended the same rally. Trump wore no mask. Trump doesn't have the Chinavirus.
