Submitted by ub on Fri, 04/30/2021 - 07:12

Does he, or the GOP have any new ideas besides canceling elections, repeating debunked claims, big lies, and conspiracies?

The devotion to a #TwiceImpeached #RussiaBought individual threatens to destroy The Republican Party and is a danger to democracy. I can still recall when #Romney and #Cheney were quintessential conservatives. The "conservative" label is now tarnished.

From Rodney King to George Floyd, both acts of police brutality were captured on video for the world to see the evidence that lied behind a blue wall of silence.

Records show that public safety officers accused of brutality had previous complaints against them, according to police officials. The first use of the term in the American press was in 1872 when the Chicago Tribune reported the beating of a civilian who was under arrest.

President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and The Democrats face a growing battle for the soul of our American nation. They’re working to restore faith in The USA, just like President Roosevelt did during the Depression.

Does Baby Gaetz A Blanket?

Submitted by ub on Wed, 04/07/2021 - 08:17

Before Matt Gaetz burst onto the national political scene as the sharp-tongued, attention-grabbing Trump defender, he was best known in Florida as “Baby Gaetz.”

As a parent, I understand the importance of a baby blanket. Once a child grows up and is not a real spoiled brat, they don’t  need one.

An overwhelming amount of research by organizational scientists, psychologists, sociologists, economists, and demographers conducted over the years shows us that socially mixed groups and those with a diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation are much more productive and innovative than homogeneous ones.
