    RE: DONNY TRUMP JR SHOT AN ELEPHANT. CUT OFF ITS TAIL FOR A PHOTO OP


    What a joke, 4 days into his presidency and he's spending his valuable time worrying about Xmas turkeys! What a total waste this guy is.

    " WASHINGTON, D.C. – In another sweeping move aimed at undoing the perceived damage done by the Obama administration, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday directing the Department of Justice to revoke all sixteen Thanksgiving Day turkey pardons issued by the former president during his eight years in office.

    “After reviewing the decisions made by the previous administration, President Trump has determined that a number of turkey pardons issued by Barack Obama were done so in a manner that was both deceitful and hazardous to the American people,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced on Tuesday. “This morning, the president once again used his executive powers to see to it that justice is served and that the surviving creatures will be destroyed.”

    "Spicer said very little is known about the true origins of the sixteen turkeys or why they were specifically singled out by former President Barack Obama. “There are a lot of obvious questions we just don’t have the answers to. Were they connected to radical Islamic terrorism? Black Lives Matter extremists? We can’t be sure,” he said. “All we know is they were sentenced to death and Obama took it upon himself to meddle in the independent judicial process.”

    "Of the sixteen turkeys pardoned by Obama, all but five are deceased. “These birds, despite their deaths, will have their pardons revoked posthumously during a ceremony in the Rose Garden,” Secretary Spicer explained. The remaining birds – Tater, Tot, Abe, Honest, and Cheese – are scheduled to be remanded into federal custody on Friday before they are turned over to officials from the Federal Bureau of Prisons who are under orders to execute the turkeys by firing squad."

    RE: DONNY TRUMP JR SHOT AN ELEPHANT. CUT OFF ITS TAIL FOR A PHOTO OP

    "Irony, the subtlest form of humor"

    This is a line from a 1950's Si Fi movie called "Creation of the Humanoids"

    The irony was that the human cop who was battling the humanoids, the hero of the embattled and endangered human population was in fact a humanoid.

    The irony here is that the son of a Republican president, killed the symbol of the Republican party. uh oh

    I guess it wouldn't have been very manly to shoot a Donkey, the symbol of the Democratic party.

    You'll be happy to know that no Donkeys were harmed during little trump junior's safari to Africa.cheering

    RE: CHARLES MANSON DIES BEHIND BARS.

    Duromojon: this was weird. he was sentenced to death. then California abolished death penalty. Manson was spared.

    then after that, California re-instated death penalty again
    Manson may have contributed to that reversal, they probably realized they stepped on their Little Richard by sparing this bottom feeders life.dunno

    Manson was very intelligent, he could have gone far if he had a better upbringing and early life..

    Manson makes a strong case for legal abortion. How many quality lives would have not been lost had he been aborted? How about that unborn infant in the womb of the mother who was butchered under his direction?
    A good fetus was killed that a bad fetus might live. What if that were reversed? Think about it. Funny that your god didn't see that coming.

    RE: Zimbabwe

    rizlared: No I didn't forget, that was not true in the 1950-60s, the rich farmers employed native Africans, built homes, schools, hospitals for the local people. Had the white immigrants never entered Rhodesia, the majority of the indigenous population would have had a far harder life, similar to the one they eventually got after Mugabe took control.


    I was born and brought up in Kenya, my father employed over 20 native Africans in the small company he ran, he also provided financial aid, scholarships for local school children to enter universities.

    To suggest that all that was done by the British in African countries was bad, is to admit an outstanding level of ignorance. Maybe some of the ideology was misplaced and certainly some whites mistreated local people, but you cannot tar all with the same brush.

    History has shown that those African countries run by the British, became prosperous and raised the level of life for the mainstream population, history also shows that since those same countries became independent, they have fallen backwards and are now struggling to survive. Thankfully China has now taken on some responsibilities and is helping to rebuild some African countries.

    Hear Hear thumbs up thumbs up
    Well spoken and quite true. I believe the Dutch also contributed to dragging stone age African cultures into the 20th century and were rewarded by being kicked out and robbed.

    RE: Zimbabwe

    Speaking of Zimbabwe, sort of, our misguided CIC Crazy In Chief, is trying to lift the import ban on Elephant body parts from Zimbabwe and Zambia. This action will encourage more killing of these already threatened animals.

    Reversing the ban now, when Zimbabwe is in political chaos and appears to have no ability or desire to protect its elephants, is outrageous and inexplicable

    The only reason I can think of for this action is it will probably result somehow in trump and/or his family making a lot of money but I haven't figured out how yet. Is there a trump hotel in these countries that caters to big game hunters?dunno

    He's supposed to be the POTUS, why on earth is he getting involved with Elephant body parts? Surely he has more important things to do such as preventing a nuclear war with a backward country that borders China.doh

    RE: sarah huckabee

    I thought Sean Spicer was a lame brain press secretary, I'll never forget how he repeated at least 4 times "There is no plan B" when asked about trumps failing attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. In war as in politics there must ALWAYS be a plan B and even a plan C etc.
    As bad as he was, I would be happy to see MS sanders be shown the door and bring Spicer back.

    RE: USA's Tax Reform

    Republicans in Congress are racing to pass their tax scam—a massive giveaway to millionaires, billionaires, and corporations at the expense of everyone else. And they are trying to push it through the House this week, with the Senate following soon after.

    Republicans don't need a single Democratic vote to force it through the House and Senate. This is the same scenario we faced with Trumpcare— a horrific bill that would've hurt regular Americans for the sake of giveaways to the rich.
    Sound familiar?

    Don't believe the BS that "interested" parties post on social media in the form of u-tubes. Instead, do some research, especially pay attention to where the money goes, read the fine print!

    A great line from a song by Tom Waits goes,

    "The large print giveth


    and the small print taketh away."

    RE: New Cookout burger joint in my town

    I've been there 3 times and have yet to try their Hamburgers. So far all I've gotten was a BBQ sandwich, (excellent) Chicken quesadilla, (not bad) and a Cheerwine float which I love. I'm going back to try their "never frozen" hamburgers and will report back. The only negative thing I can say so far is the noise level is kind of high but it could have been due to a woman in the back who was laughing at 100+ decibels. It was almost as bad as Waffle House with their banging dishes and yelling orders to the person on the grill. I no longer go to Waffle House without ear plugs and I try to sit as far as possible from the counter which isn't very far.

    RE: Gillian Welch, -Barroom Girls- real Appalachian Mountain music with lyrics



    Oh, the night came undone like a party dress
    And fell at her feet in a beautiful mess
    The smoke and the whiskey came home in her curls
    And they crept through the dreams of the barroom girls

    Well, she tosses and turns because the sun is unkind
    And the heat of the day is coming in through the blinds
    Leave all the blue skies for the rest of the world
    Because the neon will shine for the barroom girls

    Ah, the barroom girls go by your side
    Like the ponies who pass on a carousel ride
    And all of the colors go around in a swirl
    When you dance in the arms of the barroom girls

    Now she rolls to her feet when she can't sleep no more
    Looks at her clothes lying out on the floor
    Last night's spangles and yesterday's pearls
    Are the bright morning stars of the barroom girls

    Last night's spangles and yesterday's pearls
    Are the bright morning stars of the barroom girls



    I've been a Gillian Welch fan for years. If you saw the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" then you heard her sing "Go to sleepy little baby"

    RE: USA's Tax Reform

    Some of what I've heard about the proposed tax plan calls for lowering the corporate tax rate to 20%. Like most people in the middle class I'm in the 25% tax bracket. This means Major corporations like Ford, Bank of America, Home Depot, GE, US Steel, Exxon Mobil, Apple, etc, will be paying a lower tax rate than I pay.

    Another punch in the stomach to me or anybody who has a mortgage will not be able to deduct the interest on a home loan, and if that's not enough, they want to eliminate the inheritance tax so that when Millionaires or Billionaires like trump die, their offspring wont have to pay a dime on that windfall. Ordinary people don't worry about an inheritance tax because they got nothing to pass on.

    I wonder how the unemployed workers and the "poorly educated" in rural America who are still waiting for jobs feel about putting this charlatan in office? confused

    RE: Clean sweep for the Democrats in Virginia and New Jersey

    loulou77: The Democrat Party needs to get out of debt and find a candidate that has no financial ties to its party...but glad to see the tides are changing...is it fair to say that if any real change is to occur is when the Dems and Repubs will work together to enact any meaninful policies...forget being enemies and work together as Americans...just a thought...

    I would also like to see an end to big money influencing the Presidential elections...corporations buying terms and conditions or favours from politicians...that in my eyes is not a democracy...

    Good topic...
    I totally agree with you about working together but for that to happen both sides need to bury the hatchet and start thinking like Americans first and party members second. I have a very good friend who is a hard core Republican and she places party over country. During the campaign she switched from one Republican to another as they leads changed. She's also a racist using the N word frequently in chats. I'm not in love with black people but at least I don't disrespect them just because they are different from me. In fact for several years I worked for a company that was owned and operated by a black family and I worked my heart out for them. They respected me and I respected them.

    I don't know about the Dem party being in any more debt than any other party, could you shed some light on that?

    I think the biggest mistake made by the Supreme Court was The Citizens United ruling, released in January 2010, it tossed out the corporate and union ban on making independent expenditures and financing electioneering communications. It gave corporations and unions the green light to spend unlimited sums on ads and other political tools, calling for the election or defeat of individual candidates.

    Repealing Citizens United and scrapping the Electoral College would give the government back to the people where the wealthy wouldn't be permitted to buy elections and the promise of 1 person, 1 vote would finally be a reality. I'd love to hear someone who thinks that is a bad idea. The Electoral College is a dinosaur from a bygone era when people didn't even have a telephone and traveled by horse & wagon. It made sense then, but is now just a joke. We conduct banking online, re register our cars, apply for mortgages online, invest 100's of 1,000's of dollars online. So why do we need to have some politician vote for us like we're children?

    Why should the voters in CA or FL have more importance than voters in Kansas or Nebraska?dunno

    RE: TERRORISM, A GREAT STRATEGY FOR MANIPULATION AND DISTRACTION

    JoyCrest: Europe's flooding of war refugees and the infiltration of terrorists in America can be a great strategy for manipulation. George Soros, ranking among the top richest people in the planet donated 18 billion (not million) to his favorite organisation OSF "for humanitarian causes", which funneled huge amount into organizations promoting illegals, like International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants.
    Is he preparing to leave a legacy to promote destruction?

    Soros created the WELCOME TO EUROPE group and was the architect behind the Merkel Plan, made by the European Stability Initiative, supported by Open Society Foundation (OSF ) Causing chaos and destruction in Europe can unite the countries to declare a New World Order, so why not declare a European Martial law or military rule? He knows, the Muslims may be easily infiltrated by terrorist.His wealth fired revolutions in Czechoslovakia, Croatia and Yugoslavia. During and after the chaos, he acquired investments. In Ukraine, though US cronies, he got the biggest part of Naftogaz.

    So, singlehandedly, Soros successfully created the European crisis. Now his big focus is America. Remember his cohorts, the Bushes Clinton and Obama mentioned in their speeches the fallacy of New World Order, an ideal globalists propaganda for control, where unelected bureaucrats, rich ZIonists and powerful oligarchs can govern the world and deceit the people. Of course, he's not alone, but the hidden cabal of corporate media, Hollywood, military industrial complex, political gangsters are pushing this agenda.

    Soros has funded several organizations like Black Lives Matter and more than 200 organizations. Secretly, is he funding the riots, protests, and indirectly terrorists attacks to bring down the US? By bringing Muslim refugees, automatically, this can breed terrorists and chaos, how about home grown attacks? The 9/11 or the Vegas Massacre still have so many questions unanswered. There is a real terrifying evil world!
