How disgusting that Trump is using 9-11 as a backdrop for him to make public appearances and basically hold campaigns so he can push more of his ******** lies and bogus claims out onto the public. No shame from this gargoyle whatsoever.
We need to impeach him for this immediately

There are some 9/11 survivors and veterans who don’t want Biden around at all.

I found out a few days ago on Facebook that my friend's daughter is a lesbian. I'm really happy for her as well!

Tomorrow California is having a recall election to get rid of governor Gavin Nelson. In his term, he ran the state into the ground. Over the last year half a million people left the state.
Among the many grievances against Newsom
Include
1) The highest taxes in the country.
2) Overwhelming crime and homelessness.
3) Poor water management
4) Probably most insulting of all, last year while shutting down all restaurants, he and his cronies were dining in a fancy setting.

His replacement seems to be Larry Elder, a black Republican. There is nothing Democrats hate more, and they’re worried he might win.
If he was a Democrat, his color would check off that intersectional box.

Last week Larry was attacked by a woman wearing a gorilla mask throwing eggs at him. If Larry had a (D) after his name, that’s all you would hear on the news, what a horrible racist thing this country has produced. CNN anchors with righteous outrage. Instead, crickets.

True but if he had a (D) after his name, Republicans would have said the attack was staged and that it's another Jussie Smollett incident. Both parties are just obnoxiously hypocritical.

It’s not just both parties, it’s also the media that seeks to divide and conquer.

There’s some online survey that determines where you stand politically. I don’t lean Republican, but I do lean conservative.
The survey does have some margin of error, and things can change. If I took this survey when I was in college, I would’ve leaned far more left.

But what the media does (and politicians follow) is put everybody on one side in one box, everyone on the other side in another.
Then pit each side against the other. And watch the fun begin.
That’s why it’s important to judge people as individuals. It’s far too easy, and misleading, to lump a million people as one and say they’re all the same. That’s how unfair stereotypes spring up.

Al Franken is talking about running for Senate again, and curiously citing Republican double standards suggesting that if they can get away with questionable words or actions without consequence, Dems like him should be able to as well.

How about nobody get away with such and everybody face the consequences of their words and actions, regardless of their party?

See, that's the thing. It's not Republicans getting away with double standards. and it's not Democrats getting away with double standards. It's POLITICIANS getting away with double standards.

And it's us, the little guys, the nobodies, that are getting screwed. Not a single politician comes out of office poorer than when they went in.
