  1. ^I remember when Frances P. Bolton was still in Congress. I think her old district was split and then dissolved. At least that's how I remember it.
  2. do I have to be your eyes and ears??? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6707153/Cops-raid-Empire-extras-home-amid-rumored-investigation-claims-Jussie-Smollett-staged-attack.html
  3. Do you use Google? Try it. It's fun.
  4. thanks, that's my point. The Democrats are playing obstructionist partisan politics of the worst kind for the sole purpose of sticking it to Trump, the hell with national security.
  5. but if it indeed was staged, as is suspected, then it really didn't happen, this "attack." In time the full truth will come out.
  6. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/list-31-national-emergencies-effect-years/story?id=60294693 "national emergencies" declared by Obama. Did I miss something?

  7. I know, what did he mean "end up at Hiram..."? lol. As an aside, I remember when I was a child Lake Erie College was still all female. Unlike today, the school seemed to exude an air of aloofness apart from the rest of town. The girls who attended were perceived to be from generally higher socioeconomic backgrounds than us mere "townies." There were a number of students from the East Coast there and we joked that this must be because they didn't have the pedigree to get into one of the Seven Sisters colleges. Meow (although, Lake Erie was modeled after Mount Holyoke, today it's coed and shares none of MH's radical politics)
  8. no, certainly not everyone who opposed it is left wing. I'm talking about the cabal of politicians who spearheaded this movement, like AOC and Cynthia Nixon who I mentioned, but also the NYC council member from the district, Jimmy Van Bramer. He "represents" these people! What arrogance!
  9. it just demonstrates the hubris and self-righteousness of the left
  10. I had mixed feelings about this project. It was crazy to give 3 billion in subsidies to them, to say nothing of the fact the the governor and mayor basically made this deal in secret without consulting the community. There was a lot of concern that most of these jobs would go to highly paid high tech people who had Ivy League degrees who would be recruited from outside NYC. That said, it could have benefited the local community in Queens that has thousands of low income residents. The peripheral effects of having such a lavish facility could have been unprecedented, spinning off many times the 25K directly employed by Amazon. But the people of western Queens will never get the opportunity to find out, thanks in large part to all the elitist left wing local politicians (like one time gubernatorial candidate and millionaire actress Cynthia Nixon) who went all out to campaign for its demise (despite polls showing the majority of New Yorkers supporting it), including, that's right--the one and only Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, whose own district borders this neighborhood! I'd love to hear her explain to the many "everyday New Yorkers" who were looking forward to the opportunity for possible employment with Amazon why it's better that it won't be happening
  11. and I thought my family was dysfunctional!
  12. wow, this guy's father sounds like the most completely disgusting slimeball of all time. Did your friend have a good relationship with him early on in life? And did his father have any visitation rights, or did his mother prevent them from having any connection, which may explain his total absence from his life. How awful. I really don't think your friend should have any trouble finding some sort of job that will keep him afloat, especially with the relatively low cost of living in Cleveland, no? He could always go to school at night. There are so many alternative programs, like online classes that can lead to a degree. Just a terribly sad story though. Does he have siblings?
  13. poetic license. Since you don't expect facts from opinion pieces I guess I'm not required to provide them.
  14. white nationalists hanging around the MAGA camp? They represent what, maybe .000000000000000000001% of his supporters?? But anti-Semites are becoming key players and policy makers in the now powerful once-fringe left of the Democrat party (Even the mask of "anti-Zionism" is being revealed for the outright bigotry it always really was). Big difference. Sure, the leadership is not on board with these radicals, but they're getting stronger. If such cancer doesn't go unchecked soon (and I doubt it will with aggressive voices like AOC elbowing her way at every turn), there's bound to be a schism among the Dems. It will only help Trump in 2020.
  15. you do understand the concept of using facts to form an opinion, right? (that's kinda how it's done) Or is everything you post here stuff you made up from whole cloth?
