  1. I think we can all agree with some of what he says... LOL The funny thing is, some will hear him bash Trump and never hear anything after that. Some will hear him bash the democrats and Biden, and they won't hear anything else... With this guy there are no sacred cows. B/A
  2. $10 to $15 an hour..... You can't live on that. In my town to rent in the slums averages about $750 a month... Can you live on $2500 a month? Heck, at the local Volkswagen plant they pay $18 an hour... The lowest paid auto workers in America. B/A
  3. Do not watch this if you are easily offended. Do not watch if you are a Democrat or Republican. Do not watch if you believe anything you see in the media. Any media. Do not watch this if you don't want to hear facts and truth. Do not watch this if you back the EU, the IMF, South American countries. And definitely do not watch this at work or in front of any under age. Caution this will make you angry, laugh, shake your head and question everything you think you know...... Enjoy Seriously, don't watch this.... You have been warned!
  4. Very interesting. And as I always say which is in agreement with this guy, is I don't know why but it is warming. At 9:00 he show a graph from 1900 until today. Very clearly you can see that it goes up and down, but you can also see from 1900 until today there is a clear upward trend. What happened in 1900? The industrial age. At 9:44 he shoes a graph of the last 18 years. However on the graph it ends at 2015. So his graph is five years old. Again his graph on Antarctic Ice is from 2014. His drought graph is from 2000. I love the ending. He show how oil and mining destroyed the area, then he shows how it's been restored and in the very end gives credit to Canada's government for having such strong environmental laws. So he has proven that earth changes and like me can't say we do not have some effect, but the end point is still the same. The earth is changing and whether or not we are to blame, we can all do our best to help. B/A
  5. Personally I believe Trump loves Trump... Nothing more or nothing less. Putin just happens to help Trump be Trump. Like everyone in his life, the day will come when bashes Putin... It's kind of a common thread through his life. B/A
  6. The new decade is off to a hot start. The Earth just had its warmest January on record, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday. Global temperature records go back to 1880. The January 2020 global land and ocean surface temperature was 2.05 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average of 53.6 degrees, NOAA said. This broke the previous record set in January 2016. The most notable warmer-than-average areas included much of Russia and parts of Scandinavia and eastern Canada, where temperatures were as much as 9 degrees above average or higher. Here in the U.S., all 48 contiguous states were warmer than average in January, NOAA said last week. Globally, January 2020 marked the 44th consecutive January and the 421st consecutive month that the planet saw above-average temperatures. The planet's four warmest Januaries have occurred since 2016, and the 10 warmest Januaries have all occurred since 2002, NOAA said. Warmer temperatures mean melting snow and ice. The extent of Arctic sea ice was 5.3 percent below the average from 1981-2010, and Antarctic sea ice was 9.8 percent below the average. The warmth from January continued the unusual warmth from 2019, which was the second-hottest year on record. The hottest January after the second-hottest year on record “is one of those indications that things are warming dramatically,” said University of Illinois climate scientist Don Wuebbles. What’s more impressive than the margin of warmth itself is that it occurred without any assistance from an official El Niño event, Weather Underground meteorologist Robert Henson said. El Niño, a natural warming of Pacific Ocean water temperatures, also tends to produce warmer global temperatures. Looking ahead, NOAA scientists said that 2020 is also "very likely to rank among the five warmest years on record."

  7. Yup people seem to think everything stays the same, but as they say "The only thing constant.... Is change. B/A
  8. Either he did or didn't... One is a lie. It's pretty simple... Have you ever known a habitual liar? People who constantly lie can't remember their lies and get caught... B/A
  9. Umbertino, you are a softy!!! LOL B/A
  10. I completely agree, people abuse the system that is designed to help... I guess our grand kids and their kids will be the ones taking advantage when the time comes... Like I said, I'm glad I'm old and will not be here when everything changes... Be it the minority thing, or when Atlanta becomes beachfront property, or there are no polar bears, or the dollar is no longer the reserve currency. I am grateful to have lived in the greatest of times... The best Rock N Roll. Personal freedoms. Neighbors who knew one another. The right to smoke in a bar. There so many things our kids and grand kids will never have the joy of experiencing, that we old folks got to enjoy. B/A
  11. I wasn't speaking about that specific piece of legislation... I was speaking in terms of humanity... Things change and the effects change with them. My point is in the future, white people who don't understand the struggles of being in the minority are going to find out what it is like. Surely you have known people who didn't get the job or didn't get recognition because their race, color or ethnic background. In my professional life I have seen the better person not promoted or be recognized because of someone judging them on their skin color, religious belief, etc... I was simply pointing out that the time will come when the roles are reversed and perhaps those people will understand their ignorance. That's all. B/A
  12. It's the truth... Populations change... Majorities become minorities...And vice versa... The U.S. Census Bureau’s release of race and age statistics for 2017 points to two noteworthy milestones about the nation’s increasingly aging white and growing diverse population. First, for the first time since the Census Bureau has released these annual statistics, they show an absolute decline in the nation’s white non-Hispanic population—accelerating a phenomenon that was not projected to occur until the next decade. William H. Frey Senior Fellow - Metropolitan Policy Program Second, the new numbers show that for the first time there are more children who are minorities than who are white, at every age from zero to nine. This means we are on the cusp of seeing the first minority white generation, born in 2007 and later, which perhaps we can dub Generation “Z-Plus.” Together these new data suggest that a signature feature of U.S. demographic change in the 21st century is the aging and decline of the white population, along with population growth among young minorities to counterbalance the trend. White population decline America’s white population has been increasing since the first census was taken in 1790. Table 1 shows the change in the non-Hispanic white population using data from the censuses of 1970 to 2010, and annual population estimates for 2011 to 2017, based on the recent release. These new numbers show, for the first time, an absolute decline in the nation’s white population of more than 9,000 whites between 2015 and 2016 and more than 31,000 whites between 2016 and 2017. (These new estimates revised earlier census estimates, which showed white gains between 2015 and 2016.) Although these annual white declines are extremely modest (of -0.005 and -0.016 percent in 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively), they are an early harbinger of the long-term trend that the Census Bureau projected previously this year. Those projections showed the white population declining after 2023. This is indicative of a general aging of the white population, which means proportionately fewer white women in their childbearing years, and an excess of deaths over births (a natural decrease). The recent downsizing of the white population could reflect post-recession-related fertility declines in the white population, leading to an inflation of white natural decrease to its highest levels of the last six years. The past year also showed a downturn in white immigration. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/06/21/us-white-population-declines-and-generation-z-plus-is-minority-white-census-shows/?gclid=CjwKCAiAp5nyBRABEiwApTwjXuF9tJ-ESjvYWiGoUoQ3qlWYO9vbppXbx7OHzMu4Ifw0AZtdeDesiBoCvSUQAvD_BwE B/A
  13. It is interesting how people are against equality and diversity. And those people are usually white. Here's the funny thing. In the not too distant future white people are going to be the minority... Think about that for a minute. The time is coming quickly, where white people are going to be crying for equality and diversity... Once again, I'm happy to say I'm old and won't have to live in the future... That old cliche comes to mind.... "Payback's a *****" B/A
  14. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Thursday he would have no qualms voting for a *** presidential candidate – even though he's unlikely to support the *** Democrat running to take his job this year, Pete Buttigieg. "It doesn’t seem to be hurting Pete Buttigieg," Trump told Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera during a radio interview in response to a question about whether U.S. voters would support a *** candidate for president. "I think there would be some that wouldn’t – and I wouldn’t be among that group to be honest with you," Trump said. Senate action: Senate poised to pass bill curbing Trump's war powers with Iran Trump v. Kelly: Ex-Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly defends Alexander Vindman Trump touched on a wide range of topics during the roughly 45-minute interview, including the 2020 election. He slammed former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is facing criticism for embracing a "stop-and-frisk" policies that disproportionately affected the city's black residents. Trump has often defended law enforcement policies criticized by others as overly aggressive. The president's remarks on Buttigieg came days after conservative radio host Limbaugh told his audience that the country is "still not ready to elect a *** guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president." Trump has not previously discussed Buttigieg's sexual orientation, though he has often joked about his difficult-to-pronounce name. Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, placed first in the Iowa caucuses and came in second in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. A viral video Iowa that posted shortly after Iowa showed a woman who had turned in her caucus card for Buttigieg contending that she had no idea he is *** and asking for her card to be returned. "What I want her to know is that I’m running to be her president too," Buttigieg said last week on ABC's The View. This article originally appeared on USA TODAY: Trump could support a *** president, but probably not Buttigieg So much for being born again!!! LOL B/A
  15. I agree Indy... These people want it both ways... Look at Susan Collins... She voted to acquit even though she stated what he did was wrong. That was to appease her party. Then the reaction of her constituents is she will be voted out, so now show votes against Trump trying to save her herself from her voters... These people are all so corrupt. B/A
  16. He couldn't testify under oath... That seems pretty obvious... I ask you which do you believe his denial or his admittance? He is talking out of both sides of his mouth and one has to be a lie. JMHO B/A
  17. And now we know why he wouldn't testify under oath.... Trump contradicts his own denial and admits he sent Giuliani to Ukraine to dig dirt on political opponents Donald Trump has admitted sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to dig dirt on a political rival, openly contradicting his own denials on the subject during the impeachment inquiry, just days after being acquitted of all alleged crimes. Mr Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, is at the centre of a web of shadowy efforts in Ukraine to persuade officials to investigate the Bidens, questions around which were key to the abuse of power charge on which Mr Trump was impeached by the House. Mr Trump previously insisted he “didn’t direct” Mr Giuliani to do “anything” in Ukraine, suggesting the attorney was likely there on behalf of “other clients”. But less than a week after his acquittal the president gave a very different response when asked in a podcast interview: “Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer? Are you sorry you did that?” “Not at all,” Mr Trump replied, in a brazen U-turn. “Rudy was a great crime fighter, you know that, maybe better than anybody. And Rudy is totally on his game.” Speaking to Geraldo Rivera, Mr Trump then claimed he “used” Mr Giuliani in Ukraine, rather than more official channels such as the FBI because “they spied on my campaign” in 2016, also detailing his mistrust of former FBI director James Comey. “So when you tell me, why did I use Rudy – and one of the things about Rudy – number one, he was one of the very best prosecutors, and the best mayor,” Mr Trump said. “But also, other presidents had them … they all had lawyers … and they do things for them. It’s really circumventing – but very legally – and maybe getting things done faster.” The president appears to have been emboldened by his acquittal in the Senate, after a trial that saw his Republican allies increasingly move away from denying he had done anything wrong to merely playing down the severity of his actions in outsourcing attacks on his political rivals to foreign nations. He has embarked on a campaign of vengeance against those who he views as having wronged him during the impeachment proceedings, and – in a move reminiscent of dealings with Ukraine – appears to have openly boasted of offering New York governor Andrew Cuomo a deal on a state immigration law in return for dropping investigations into his finances and tax returns. His new admission regarding Mr Giuliani aligns more closely with what he said during his infamous call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, which sparked the impeachment proceedings. Transcripts, released by Mr Trump, showed him telling Mr Zelensky he would like him to speak with Mr Giuliani, while suggesting that he investigate Hunter Biden. “I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General,” Mr Trump said. “Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great.” Now he has admitted sending Mr Giuliani to Ukraine, it remains to be seen whether the president will row back on other claims of ignorance. Perhaps most notably, indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas – a Ukrainian-born businessman – claims to have been part of Trump-ordered efforts to oust the US ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was seen as an obstacle to any probe into the Bidens. Mr Parnas has claimed Mr Trump “knew exactly what was going on”. But despite a trove of photographic evidence showing the pair together, Mr Trump strenuously denied knowing Mr Parnas, calling him a “con man” and saying: “I don’t know him at all … know nothing about him. I can only tell you this thing is a big hoax.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-contradicts-own-denial-admits-095009228.html B/A
