    "Trust" is a word I would never use towards a politician - but I'm guessing that Trump would do less irreparable damage than Biden AND with champions like Massie and Rand in positions to affect change and pressure Trump, we can win some battles and live to fight another day. That's some improvement over simply voting the lesser of 2 evils and as good as I expect it to get. I don't know if the same can be said of RFK because he seems to retain that instinctual democrat need to always come off as “the nicest”, the most caring guy - which leads to stupid, unfair policies. I don't want to see the well-being of American citizens sacrificed so that a politician can look "nice" and feel good about himself while he deals with illegal aliens, Israel, Palestine, or whatever much-lobbied-for group of pains-in-Americans'-asses are crying the loudest at the moment. Could he ever say "NO! Americans come first!” to our most show-cased victims? Of course we know Biden's people just plain hate us all and would do anything they can get away with to make our very ideas illegal. Honestly, we need Massie and the Pauls to create a separate party revolving around Ron Paul's principles. I don’t see it happening this year, and until it comes my expectations will remain low.

    Towards the end of 2016 Trump pretended to have a truce with Chris Christie and later made him "opioid czar" or something like that. For a while, Christie got to feel he was a part of things, but in the end he didn't get to do much and kind of faded away and disappeared - then went back to expressing his contempt for Trump. I anticipate that Trump's comment about Nikki Haley was a similar move - just made to stay on the good side of her supporters for the votes - it is politics after all. While I'm somewhat concerned about him making a positive comment about Haley, I don't feel the need to freak out over it yet.

    (Just in case anyone doesn't know: If you have TV w/access to C-Span (regular Cspan, not 2 or 3) the convention is airing live right now - even though it's not listed in the TV guide) They seem intent on getting Ron Paul speaking right on time, although they are having ballotting going on at the moment. "We don't want to keep Dr Paul waiting."

    Trumps speech is live on Cspan right now. ("Libaterians") There's some cheering, but a lot of booing, and yelling too. I heard "End the Fed" chants at one point. There are a lot of "Free Ross" signs... "Free Ross!" chants right now... ah, Trump just said "He's already served 11 years. We're gonna get him home." "End the Fed!" chants again. He's requesting they nominate him - or - at least give him their vote, which seems to draw a lot of boos. Trump not getting all the love he usually does, from this crowd. update: Done.

    Thank you, but would you mind posting a few examples (before and after) to illustrate the change I'm supposed to make to the URL? Do I just replace twitter.com with any of the many urls listed on that page? or are there other steps? No download required? ------- Also ------- My own twitter update ----- About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that - even though I have no twitter account - I can now see the latest tweets of Thomas Massie and Rand Paul (still can't see the replies though.) It seems some change has been made which allows non-accounts to view their new tweets - Maybe there is some provision which allows an exception for official congress member/senators accounts? Perhaps an account holder can set an option that allows this? These are the only 2 accounts I've experienced this with - I still can't see anyone else's new tweets.

    Things did change a lot after the 70s. I attribute it to the end of Bretton Woods in 1971. I think it took the whole decade for the resulting damage to snowball, and really become apparent to non-rich people. It’s not like they warned the general population outright about how bad things were about to get. Inflation became more and more significant throughout the 70s. It was discussed constantly! It was a favorite topic of comedians (See old Johnny Carson monologues.) Every politician promised they were going to stop inflation. By the mid 70s, "shrinkflation" was already a thing. I can't remember when penny candy became extinct - I think it was the 80s. Don’t know what part of the country your brothers were in, but in my neck of the woods things were not that rosy. As a young person it was not possible to pay rent AND save up money to buy a brand new car with cash, or make a down payment on a house while you were still in your early 20s. For above-minimum-wage pay, you had to “know” someone (a relative or family friend) that could get you into a higher paying job. This was the case even if you just wanted any factory job with decent benefits, say, at the Ford plant or Westinghouse. (This was once a reliable way to support your family.) During the 70s the factories had already started closing down. There was no such thing as an "apprenticeship" and if "internships" happened, they weren't advertising for them in the papers. You had to be accepted by a union, so you had to either know someone, or fulfill a quota to get hired. (The concept of racial DEI isn’t new, it just wasn’t admitted to.) No one remembers that every day, the media was always using terms like “joblessness” and “unemployment crisis”. Of course, I’m from a state that’s always had a lot of corruption and that has it’s effect.

    Yes - I recall reading quotes someone had posted from the 60s, of some college students saying that their degrees didn't guarantee that they would find work anymore and they felt scammed. There's always been someone pushing this notion that the previous generation had it so much easier than those just starting out and I think it's intentionally deceitful. It's probably the reason the "elites" started dividing us up with terms like "baby boomer", generation X, millennial. etc., Rather than blaming the corrupt elites that fucked us over during the previous generation(s) - say, by murdering our president, or stealing our gold, or ending bretton-woods, or sending our jobs overseas (all without us being quite aware of what they are pulling till it's too late) - they obscure/deny the past hardships ever existed and condition each generation to believe the previous one simply had an easy time. You grow up following a certain path, only to find out after it's too late, that that path doesn't work at all. You've been exploited and other people got rich exploiting you. In this way they scam us all, while making each generation blame, and feel resentful towards, those before them.

    "the will of Congress"? Since when is that a thing? The correct expression is "the will of the people" but neither Johnson or Biden are considering that. Traitors!

    (DailyCaller - Nicole Silverio) May 08, 2024 - 5:41 PM ET Gaetz has an interesting point in that he assumes there are 2-3 republicans who are ripe for bribing. It's as if he has specific people in mind.

    Not happy with Trump's truthsocial response! :/ I know he's got a lot to deal with right now, but this makes it sound like he doesn't grasp the situation at all - that is - that Johnson is a backstabber who went out of his way to vote with the dems for legislation that we don't want; still spying on us, yet again splurging on extremely excessive foreign aid, and failing to acknowledge that we have been invaded. "Mike Johnson is a good man who is trying very hard." WTF?! Mike Johnson is a weak piece of shit who is indifferent to the well-being of American citizens! Did he delegate this response to still-incompetent staff?! Or must I accept that he will definitely be stabbing us in the back?

    That sounds reasonable for an actual hunter and it's how I’ve always seen it depicted on the screen and in books - but - the story says she took the dog on a hunt so it could learn from the other dogs. Instead it acted nuts and ruined the whole hunt, spoiling her fun. Does not sound like she took the dog's training very seriously. I suppose training an animal is less fun than shooting them. I think she's a poser and a show-off. If Trump picked her as his VP she’d be worse than Pence - if that is even possible! - and it would make me seriously doubt Trump’s ability to ever be even a half-way decent president. She’s part of a cult, too. This is crazy talk. This sounds accurate. My dog bit me once (not badly) - it was a case of displaced aggression and I wouldn't have dreamed of killing him for it (RIP - He lived to a ripe old age and was put to sleep at the vet's office). In the original Guardian story, it is implied that she spoke about this because she believes it proves she can ‘do anything “difficult, messy and ugly” if it simply needs to be done’... as if this is a great leadership quality.
