4.17-19 Open Threads
Hola everyone. 🙂 We have been getting much needed rain in our area of the infamous Sandbar Peninsula. Lucking out storm wise: no flooding or severe wind damage. There were tornado/waterspout warnings up on our side of the Atlantic Ocean around Melbourne and Sebastian Inlet. I sure hope this luck holds during hurricane season. Anywho, these are Open Threads so post whatever you like. Take care.
$$$From her owners- she didnt raise jack💩💩
Imagine this – DeFascist is in a big dick contest with a mouse. At this point the mouse’s lawyers are simply playing with thier food. The Mouse’s lawyers can keep this in the courts long after Defascist is out of office. Orl had mentioned some major flooding , has Defascist put in an appearance like most Gov’s do or is his battle with the mouse more important?
The only time this so-called “governor” shows up at a natural disaster down here is if it helps his PR purposes. That’s nothing newsworthy though–plenty of politicos pull that stunt.
Unfortunately that photo opp is an expetation of the office no matter R or D.
DeSh1tface will melt down once he is in the national spotlight. That’s how dumb he is. The more I read about these yahoos, the more my beliefs about Ivy League institutions are confirmed: they are academic jokes. 💩💩
I got to have quite a few laughs at Walkers meltdown once the Wolves of the national media tore into him. Its your turn to have a few laughs when he goes thru the media grinder.
Lookin’ forward to it. 🙂
If this was liberal Judge’s the GQP heads would be exploading,having numerous stroke-heart attachs and demanding his resignation. But its one of thier own so not a problem.
Bernie op ed in the Guardian
Reading Bernie’s book right now. I am about a quarter through it. My big complaint is his harping on this being “the richest country on earth.” No, it’s not.
Depends on the comparison- Bernie must be using the second list
The Top 10 Richest Countries in the World (by GNI per Capita, Atlas Method, current US$ – World Bank)**:
Liechtenstein — $116,440
Switzerland — 90,600
Luxembourg — $73,500
Norway — $83,880
Ireland — $76,110
United States — $70,930
Denmark — $68,300
Singapore — $64,010
Iceland — $63,460
Qatar — 62,310
Where would the US be if you took out just the billionaire?
Here are the 10 richest countries in the world using GDP:
United States – $18.62 trillion
China – $11.22 Tn
Japan – $4.94 Tn
Germany – $3.48 Tn
United Kingdom – $2.65 Tn
France – $2.47 Tn
India – $2.26 Tn
Italy – $1.86 Tn
Brazil – $1.80 Tn
Canada – $1.53
How come the richest countries on the per capita list have some type of M4A and the US doesnt?
The craperations say they cant afford to pay more and then the R congresscritters that are owned by them scream that to many people are collecting food assistance and other govt aid and want to cut those benefits. Nice little vicious circle…
That must have been…fun for Bernie. 🙂
I was busy with taxes, didn’t watch one Sunday show.
Of course it’s DOA but folks have to know there are proposals out there.
One of the fascinating (to me) aspects of Bernie’s book is the way he describes the actual machinations of the Senate. You can follow how the sausage gets made. A lot of it is rotten with corruption. It’s written very well, and I am enjoying the read. 🙂 A BIG 10-plus!
Seriously, just how ignorant are voters in this country? And not just ignorant, but aggressive, too.
As i thought…
Fox News settles Dominion’s defamation lawsuit for $787.5 million just as the trial was about to start
It would have been fun to see Rupert Murdoch, Tucker Carlson,Jennie Pirro and Sean Hannity — grilled on the witness stand. Then again they would have pleaded the 5th or committ perjury while on the stand.
Murdoch just remarried too.
I like it that Dominion called FN’s bluff.
POX Prop(aganda) has several more cases coming up against it. I was a little disappointed, too, that Dominion settled.
Fox finally admits wrong doing.
But there’s a good reason why they settled (at least for them).
From Business Insider:
This has set a standard for the other cases against POX Prop. One of them will not settle for $$. Plus, there are criminal cases lining up. I just want to see the whole Murdock’s passports pulled and they kicked out of here. The big one is tRump. Let’s see if he is finally put in a genuine prison.
No comment from the beyond-disgusted gallery!
x2700 , National debt and taxes are for the little people
2015 Redux, this time with Biden, but weaponizing Feinstein’s illiness.
See jcb’s post about Durbin’s utility as chairman of the judiciary committee in response to the GQP. Durbin plays too nice.
Flip answer by Cooper. Brandon Johnson doesn’t have the luxury of rebuilding from scratch; he takes office in less than a month. There are unions and seniority to consider.
Not to worry. Gun laws, what gun laws? Chi-town folk will just have to turn into vigilantes for self-protection if the stupid fuzzballs go on strike!
Yes obviously not going to happen but something does need to be done about these out of control police departments who have way too much power. More people pointing out what the police are doing might help.
I don’t disagree that the Chicago FOP in particular is difficult to deal with, but I’m more critical of Cooper’s “easy answer”. Johnson’s plan is to hire 200 more detectives to solve crimes not just adding more street cops.
Cops were invented back in the early 20th century to protect the monied classes. Look it up under Pinkerton and early FBI. Nothing wrong with protecting folks, but in this country it’s negated by the no gun laws nationally.
they go back to the 1850s if thats the one?
From DWT today,
Media Rejoices! Long Island Shudders! GOP Moans! George Santos Is Running For Reelection
Although I don’t know how long this sh#t show is going to last, I’m getting my popcorn out and looking forward to the laughs. But there is still a reason for the dems to be aware.
Last paragraph of the article –
IF the NY Dem party can get its act together, they can find a candidate and win.
I had family on that part of LI. That ahole gets re-elected, that’s on the stupidity of the voters there.
No kidding, Only Cult -45 is lower on my scumbag level
