Just Saying...


Shortly after noon on August 31,1939 Hitler ordered hostilities against Poland to begin at 4:45 a.m. the next morning. At 8 p.m. on August 31, Nazi S.S. troops wearing Polish uniforms staged a phony invasion of Germany, damaging several minor installations on the German side of the border. They also left behind a handful of dead concentration camp prisoners in Polish uniforms to serve as further evidence of the supposed Polish invasion, which Nazi propagandists publicized as an unforgivable act of aggression.

Jeepers-I hope that caravan doesn't engage in any acts of violence at our border.

So Trump has called Andrew Gillum a thief

Immigrant Tales

more than 1.5 million adults and children left to seek refuge in America. Most were desperately poor, and many were suffering from starvation and disease... killed more than 1 million people in five years and generated great bitterness and anger... The immigrants who reach America settle in cities where they live in difficult conditions. But most manage to survive.

Between 1845 and 1855 more than 1.5 million adults and children left Ireland to seek refuge in America. Most were desperately poor, and many were suffering from starvation and disease. They left because disease had devastated Irelandís potato crops, leaving millions without food. The Potato Famine killed more than 1 million people in five years and generated great bitterness and anger at the British for providing too little help to their Irish subjects. The immigrants who reached America settled in Boston, New York, and other cities where they lived in difficult conditions. But most managed to survive, and their descendants have become a vibrant part of American culture.

Chuck Todd was playing "both sides" again tonight...

Complaining about the lack of civil discourse. And to prove it was both sides he cited Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels. That's republican equivalency-their side represented by a "president" and our side represented by an exotic dancer...

Fuck Grassley three times...

Just now saying in the Senate "Schumer did" this, and "Schumer did" that... Get this you worthless bastard-I understand that "My esteemed Colleague Chuck Shumer" went out the window but get this Dickhead-It's Senator Schumer and your smelly showing of your red ass should be censured!

Trump says young men in America should be scared

Yet as an older, more experienced man he fails to suggest they go out and get bone spurs...
