I got the flu and pneumonia shots today.

I did get a full headache after the shot but I know from my mother-in-law that is a side effect she gets. Naturally they told me my arm would be sore. If just seems the soreness is becoming more intense. Is that normal? I took two aleve.

Wasn't sure where to post it.

Trump to prime Minister May I don't want America to go first and others do nothing

Did I hear that correctly on Chris Hayes' show that when Teresa May urge Trump for America to take action against Russia for the poisoning on British soil?

Putin picked a very useful idiot.

Former Marine Claims Troops Are Now Discussing "Disobeying Unlawful" Orders From Trump

Did anyone see this interview with Alex Witt?

Former Marine Claims Troops Are Now Discussing “Dosobeying Unlawful” Orders From Trump As They Expect Him To Turn to The Military To Keep Him In Power

Former Marine who served in Iraq and Democratic Representative Seth Mouton recently sat down for a remote interview with MSNBC’s Alex Witt and wasted absolutely no time in criticizing Donald Trump for his alleged comments, calling fallen American service members “losers” and “suckers.” But things got even more serious when Mouton revealed that the disdain for and dissatisfaction with the current president runs deep in the US military.
The MSNBC host asked the former Marine how current and former members of the United States military feel about their current commander-in-chief, and Mouton cut right to the chase.

Witt asked, “What have you heard from troops? Those that are your constituent, veterans that have come home or those who you’re in contact?”

“Well, I’m not going to speak for every veteran,” Mouton responded, “but I can’t tell you how many have reached out to me and said that they have discussions now in the military about what it means to disobey unlawful orders, because they fully expect them from the commander in chief. There are a lot of people, even inside the White House, who believe that he’s going to try to get the military to keep him in power after he loses this election to Joe Biden.”



I am truly scared because of the articles I have read in the past years about White supremist infiltrating not only Law Enforcement but miltiary as well.

W.H.directs fed agencies to cancel race-related training sessions it calls 'Un-American Propaganda'

President Trump is moving to revamp federal agencies’ racial sensitivity trainings, casting some of them “divisive” and “un-American,” according to a memo by the White House Office of Management and Budget.

In the two-page memo, OMB Director Russell Vought says that Trump has asked him to prevent federal agencies from spending millions in taxpayer dollars on these training sessions. Vought says OMB will instruct federal agencies to come up with a list of all contracts related to training sessions involving “white privilege“ or “critical race theory,” and do everything possible within the law to cancel those contracts, the memo states.

The memo, released on Friday, also tells all federal agencies to identify and if possible cancel contracts that involve teaching that America is an “inherently racist or evil country.”


I am so speechless I can't see straight. the phrase 3/5ths compromise keeps popping into my head! that sick thing became the foundation of this country! This isn't an evil country but it is a Flaw country . We are inherently racist.
