We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It most certainly is not. The function of the Ivy League is to network the children of the Ruling Caste so that they form friendships and alliances and marriages that will serve them when they accede to power.
The old royals courts did the same thing by fostering the sons and daughters of the nobles of the realm. All Ruling Castes require an institution like the Ivies or royal court to stabilize their rule.
Church leadership is important, but I see no lack of failure in all churches' leadership. There is far too much lukewarm in all the congregations. There is a doctrine to follow and it is our choice as individuals to follow or not. In the end it is Gods judgement of us and not our judgement of God.
You realize this only happened on Twitter, not in the real world, right? Twitter may have millions of users, but there are hundreds of millions of non-users. The word has gone out that Mastriano is a confirmed Nazi and most people aren't going to know that's a vicious lie.
Only a few years earlier the same ethnic group perpetrated a multimillion dollar rip off using childcare as the vehicle of theft. It has not dawned on Minnesotans that multiculturalism is a problem and not an enlightenment. Pair that with the democratic party's absurd fashion of clinging to any program that buys votes and, like magic, the taxpayer dollars disappear along with the Mpls star and tribune reporters.
Wonderful schooling by Lemon’s Brit guest, but I would have asked why he’s not demanding reparations from the Demonrat party since they were the party that defended slavery, supported the KKK, implemented poll taxes, literacy tests, segregation and Jim Crow, and now considers blacks to be too stupid or lazy to get an ID to vote. In an age when George Washington and Thomas Jefferson have to be “defended” for owning slaves, their is no defense needed for the Demonrat party.
It wasn't a bad answer by the British commentator, but it certainly wasn't a 'devastating' one. Like the climate arguments, it all depends on how one sets up the reference frame around the argument.
For reparations, it's all about who has the deepest pockets and is also the biggest fool. That's the US, right now. Slavery was a big problem in the 1800s, but the records show that the US was far from the most egregious offender. But before the avenging angel starts bickering, I would ask anybody that is after reparations because they're outraged about slavery 160 years ago: What're you doing to stop the slavery that is ongoing right now? Or are you really just in it for you and your own pocket?
Why is the federal government giving $240 million of our money for food aid? It should not be the business of the federal government to feed kids at home, probably not to feed them in schools either. To just airdrop that kind of money is criminal and ouer politicians should go to jail for gross mismanagement. The federal government starting with congress needs to be reined in.
