What was Christmas Adam's favorite celebration?

On Christmas Eve. Don't know if either or both enjoyed it, though.

Talk about misleading! Check out this headline on Reuters:

Biden plots trip to Angola as promise of Africa trip lingers

merriam-webster describes plot (not the land) as
a secret plan for accomplishing a usually evil or unlawful end : intrigue


It should have been PLANS, not PLOTS. Trump is the one who does the plotting.

Someone please explain this headline?

I am not referring to the issue described but only the wording of the headline. Without reading the article below, can anyone explain what those words say as they confuse me. Was this written by an idiot or is it just me? I know I'm not the brightest bulb in the universe (after all, some stars are brighter than I am ).

Tucson is not the place to be around Veterans Day! My experience:

We arrived in Tucson Sunday night. I've purposely worn my AF Veteran hat to see how many Maggots would thank me for my service. At home, in our smaller city, I'd get lots of "Thank you"s especially this time of the year. Up until yesterday, when we went to see the Traveling Wall and they gave me a T-Shirt that said "Stand for the flag. Kneel for the fallen", I could count the total number of people who said anything on 3 fingers. Nobody else at the places we visited, the restaurants we ate at, or the hotels where we stayed. So today, Veterans Day, we walked around the 4th Ave District passing well over a couple of hundred people and I got only two - one guy on the Sun Tram and the waitress at lunch. I was wearing both my hat and my new shirt. I don't think anyone else knew what day it was - or cared.
Tomorrow is our last day here. Then we head back east on Amtrak (not one person on the outgoing train said anything to me but most of the time, I had no hat on.
I think I'll be glad to get out of Arizona.

This is not going to help Israel in any way. This is terrorism for terrorism, not justifiable at all.

From Reuters this morning:

Israeli settler attacks fuel the fire as Gaza war rages

Israeli settlers with the approval of the right wing politicians are acting like the right wing nuts in this country but the victims don't have the protections of the police or military. Sad.

Muslims say "No ceasefire in Gaza, no votes for Biden". Not so bright of them.

Reuters today:

No ceasefire in Gaza, no votes, Muslim Americans tell Biden

Really bright. Who are the first immigrants that will suffer if Muslims withhold support for Democrats and Trump wins? Nothing like cutting off your nose to spite your face! Do they really think that Trump or any Repugs will stop Israel from doing what is doing now just to please Muslims? Fat chance of that!

So states the biggest Coward in the World

Trump warns US enemies: spill ‘drop of American blood’ and we’ll spill ‘gallon of yours’

You and how many of your "brave" Maggots, "Patriots" and "Proud Boys"?

Send the troops? Why? You said they were losers!

You have no authority as a criminal defendant to do anything and you LOST the presidency.

Mr. Mouth strikes again!

Spill your own blood first. We'll be watching you with the popcorn. You're just another John "I just played a soldier in the movies" Wayne.

We'll follow Biden - a real leader who isn't just one big mouth.

DeSatanist's claim of sending drones and arms denied by Israel's consul general

Ron DeSantis’s claim he sent military equipment to Israel unravels

Apparently all he did was
smoothing paperwork requirements for a previously arranged shipment of “rifle parts” ordered by [Israel].


Yup! Trump's lying little brother!
