Re: EARTH....

Mauna Loa in Hawaii is erupting for the first time in 38 years. Though lava is flowing down one side of the volcano, the eruption in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is not threatening communities, the US Geological Survey said midday Monday. “All indications are that the eruption will remain in the N...

Re: Prime Example of the Liberal Press...and...

Again they are lying and telling the truth at the same time. From the article it would appear that because sales numbers are up inflation is not effecting spending. Which would be great news for the liberal democrats if true. When in fact people are spending more and getting less if you factor that...

Re: Whoopi Goldberg Wants Emmett Till Accuser Carolyn Bryant to Face Trial in Court

We had this discussion not long ago. My question is how can putting an 88 year old crippled woman living in a nursing home on trial advance anything. I believe as I recall from facts put forth in the previous discussion is there is nothing she can by tried for close to 70 years after the fact. Sadl...

Re: Mass Shootings/Gun Control Reform Thread

Wondering if the shooter was sleep deprived from working too many hours and days in a row or was fired or disciplined, and if the workload and staffing levels leading up to the holidays were factors in his breakdown? Sounds more like he had some problems and became paranoid. Former co-workers said ...

Re: Christian Walker is Unloading On his Dad

Since you don’t run away. Explain why if the argument isn’t about race, the color qualifier is necessary. I took a race relations class 40 years ago in college. That was one of the ways we learned to recognize racism and racial bias was the use of qualifiers based on race. Now you, who claim to car...

The alternative etymology of course comes from retail employees who know it to be one of the worst days of the year for them.

Supreme Court Rejects TFG's Request to Keep Tax Records from Congress

TFG has tried to keep his tax records from Congress using the courts as a delaying action. His final appeal to the Supreme Court had been rejected by the Supreme Court so now the Treasury Department can turnover TFG's tax records. The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied former president Donald Trump’s e...
