Switched from being Pro Europe to anti Europe, openly supported a lie regarding the Brexit campaign. Used tax payers money to support his mistress, while major of London, lies constantly. Only wanted to be Prime Minister, because he wanted say he been PM. No interest really in being a Prime Minister.
But, our other major party is kinda out of touch also.
Mort: Trump tried and failed to make the U.S. a dictatorship. The attack on the Capitol and him trying to control the election will be something we remember like 9/11, Tiananmen, OK City bombing, Hitler, etc. Final straw for me was him condoning his Texan supporters trying to run Biden's bus off the road. His actions after losing the election was a very close call.
Mort: I love black and white classic movies, and I learned reading today that actress Hedy Lamarr invented wireless connections during WWII. She wanted to help with the war effort and they told her she was too pretty, so she did that.
Papa Zoom: I think charges against Tou Thao should be dropped because he wasn't on top of George and wanted to roll him on his side when he was struggling, but it's like he was the lookout during a crime they say. He'd been out of the academy 4 days and probably didnt feel he could go against a 19 year veteran. The cop who shot Daunte Wright was charged with manslaughter and I think she should've been. 23 years and she doesn't know the difference between a gun and a taser. They keep one on their non dominant side. I cant remember which.
Papa Zoom: I know. It's crazy. When it's life or death, they should be able to shoot, but they can't win if it's other than a white person and it wouldnt make the news. On the other hand, I'm glad Chauvin was found guilty on all counts. I never let myself watch the video until court. Obviously murder. Brett Farve is an idiot for what he said. Chauvin was found guilty of unintentional homicide during an assault. It was cruel and I bet the judge adds aggravating circumstances which will give Chauvin the max.
Tuesday: I doubt in that situation tasing was an option as it happened so quickly. He save the life of another black girl which is ironic and it’s own way because Black Lives Matter are still protesting his actions. Had he done nothing or had he acted too Late, and the other black was killed by the knife wielding girl, he would be criticized for not having done some thing. It’s a lose lose for cops. That’s just my opinion of course but it seems like they can’t win when they are faced with a split second decision. I doubt that cop woke up that morning and thought “I think I’ll kill a black girl today.”
Watching the Derek Chauvin trial and the paramedic from Georgia is probably glad he can say "yes sir" instead of the previous female lawyer he went from "yes miss" ( a woman his age or younger) to "yes mam" (older woman) to "yeah". because it sounded repetitive. Good manners.
Bwild: Agreed. The Libs are the ones who are obsessed with the color of people's skin. They act like "people of color" are less capable than white people and can't handle being treated THE SAME. The people that say that requiring ID to vote is a racist requirement are absolutely ridiculous.
Bwild: Captains don't leave a sinking ship. Cruz's wife set up the escape with neighbors and friends after the power went off and said she was freezing. Cruz lied and backtracked after the texts came out from neighbors that weren't impressed.
I like how these snowflake blame everyone for others mistakes Last I knew, the president of the United States was in charge of fema I could be wrong Then of course you have the governor of the state And of course when me Cruz planned his trip during his vacation, he was well aware that the frigid temps would create such havoc So He cut his trip short and was back in Texas before the people who were actually in charge did anything But hey...that’s my opinion
Papa Zoom: Is that verbatim? I see the quotation marks but will still have to look it up. Biden is a gaffe machine but I never understood why non whites are having more issues with covid. Trump has said a lot worse with a mean spirit. Joe Biden had a stutter as a kid and still trips over himself, but mostly doesnt have a filter. Trump is just mean.

Bwild: “President Joe Biden spoke at length about the challenges of getting coronavirus vaccines where Black Americans can best receive them, saying at a CNN town hall that his administration is prioritizing mobile vaccine clinics, community health centers and pharmacies in what he called “the toughest neighborhoods in terms of illness.”
“The other thing is, a lot of people don’t know how to register,” Biden said during the CNN town hall in Milwaukee. <span>“Not everybody in the community, the Hispanic and the African American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and in inner-city districts … know how to use, know how to get online and determine how to get in line for the covid vaccination,” Biden said. “So we’re committed to spend a billion dollars on public education to help people figure out how they can get in.”
Reading Barack's A Promised Land reminds me of people I totally forgot about; Robert Bork, Donald Rumsfeld, John Boehner, and Joe the Plumber. Lol Donald Trump will fade away hopefully, but he's so power hungry, I don't know. He's making fun of McConnel, which could lead to violence against him. I was on the fence about Trump until the incident in Texas with Biden's bus. Can I say what I wish would happen to a former president?
