Tom R, this thread is about Hillary and the FEC.

Hi, everyone. Haven't lurked for a while because I have been working on the Trump/Jim Jordan campaigns. But has anyone talked about the fact that Sarah Palin was not invited to McCain's funeral? I am livid.

DeplorableAnn

The day Trump came to Lewis Center, I stood for seven hours at the rope line to see him. It was so hot I thought I was going to pass out.

DeplorableAnn

Silly me, it's on Drudge now. :)

Hi Ann! Yes, we talked about the Palin snub and how well she is handling it.

I wonder how much of that cash was Chinese laundry sent via celebs. The Chinese paid for that bathroom server access somehow.

So, how does the statement "Monkeying around" indicate somebody is racist? When the definition of Monkey Around is:
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/monkey%20around
Monkey around definition is - to do things that are not useful or serious : to waste time. How to use monkey around in a sentence...a young scientist monkeying around in the lab.

I'm with KK; it was dumb and probably won't amount to a hill of beans (and may even help him if CNN doesn't rein it in) but DeSantis doesn't need to make unforced errors.

Ann!! Great to read you. Hasn't it been a miserable summer? The morning weather guy said we've had the third largest number of nights where the temperature never got below 70. Ugh, but the patriarch of a local orchard told me that warm temperatures at night are possibly the biggest factor in a bumper apple crop.

Sure it's BS, clarice. But i don't have much faith in most American politicians to be able to turn it on the media if they pour it on like they usually do.

if DeSantis' first moves out of the box is an apology he'll have his work cut out for him the rest of the campaign.

here's hoping he doesn't monkey it up. we need him.

Here's to you Racist FULL COMMIE Union Label Fag:


The earliest of such laws were regulations passed in regards to the railroad industry. At the end of the nineteenth century, as Dr. Walter Williams points out, "On some railroads — most notably in the South — blacks were 85–90 percent of the firemen, 27 percent of the brakemen, and 12 percent of the switchmen."1

The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, unable to block railroad companies from hiring the non-unionized black workers, called for regulations preventing the employment of blacks. In 1909, a compromise was offered: a minimum wage, which was to be imposed equally on all races.

To the pro-minimum wage advocate, this may superficially seem like an anti-racist policy. During this time, with racism still rampant throughout the United States, blacks were only able to enjoy such high levels of employment by accepting lower wages than their white counterparts. These wage-gaps at the time genuinely were the product of racist sentiment.

But this new wage rule, of course, did not eliminate the racism of nineteenth-century employers. Instead, it displaced their racism at the expense of black workers. One white union member at the time celebrated the new rule for removing "the incentive for employing the Negro."2 This early minimum wage rule was explicitly put in place to prevent African-Americans from finding employment, and it was successful in this goal.

Tit for tat-a-tat-tat

On 1 February 1968, two Memphis garbage collectors, Echol Cole and Robert Walker, were crushed to death by a malfunctioning truck. Eleven days later, frustrated by the city’s response to the latest event in a long pattern of neglect and abuse of its black employees, 1,300 black men from the Memphis Department of Public Works went on strike. Sanitation workers, led by garbage-collector-turned-union-organizer T. O. Jones, and supported by the president of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Jerry Wurf, demanded recognition of their union, better safety standards, and a decent wage.

The union, which had been granted a charter by AFSCME in 1964, had attempted a strike in 1966, but failed in large part because workers were unable to arouse the support of Memphis’ religious community or middle class. Conditions for black sanitation workers worsened when Henry Loeb became mayor in January 1968. Loeb refused to take dilapidated trucks out of service or pay overtime when men were forced to work late-night shifts. Sanitation workers earned wages so low that many were on welfare and hundreds relied on food stamps to feed their families.

On 11 February, more than 700 men attended a union meeting and unanimously decided to strike. Within a week, the local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People passed a resolution supporting the strike. The strike might have ended on 22 February, when the City Council, pressured by a sit-in of sanitation workers and their supporters, voted to recognize the union and recommended a wage increase. Mayor Loeb rejected the City Council vote, however, insisting that only he had the authority to recognize the union and refused to do so.

The following day, after police used mace and tear gas against nonviolent demonstrators marching to City Hall, Memphis’ black community was galvanized. Meeting in a church basement on 24 February, 150 local ministers formed Community on the Move for Equality (COME), under the leadership of King’s longtime ally, local minister James Lawson. COME committed to the use of nonviolent civil disobedience to fill Memphis’ jails and bring attention to the plight of the sanitation workers. By the beginning of March, local high school and college students, nearly a quarter of them white, were participating alongside garbage workers in daily marches; and over 100 people, including several ministers, had been arrested..

I was listening to something on YouTube today clarifying the question I raised (?) about Men's and Women's tennis. Yes, men and women in the Grand Slam are being payed the exact same purse despite women bringing in half the viewership and playing-what is it-40% less sets?

Billie Jean King was asked about it and she said she believed that men's sets should be backed off to three. Ain't that just like a leftist to put restraints on achievement? How do we force half the people to stop watching men's tennis, take a knee?

I have found demands for DeSantis to apologize. No apology from him. I haven't looked everywhere though.

"Henry Loeb III was an American politician of the Democratic party, who was mayor of Memphis, Tennessee"

But one hardly needs to look for Party affiliation, yes? If a politician advocates discrimination based on skin color, or if a politician advocates nailing black citizens to a cross of dependency on gov't programs ... we'll, that politician is definitely a Dem.

“Lanny Davis admits being anonymous source in CNN Report.” @BretBaier Oh well, so much for CNN saying it wasn’t Lanny. No wonder their ratings are so low, it’s FAKE NEWS!

What do you think will happen?
There’s never gonna be a truth and reconciliation commission, because that’s not our nature as a nation. We tend to say, “Let’s go forward, let’s not look back.” But there’s gonna be crazy payback when this is over — when they’re not in power. It’s gonna be so ugly. Even within the ranks of the people who supported the president. It’s going to end poorly.

My father was a coroner in the army of occupation in Germany after World War II, and he used to say, “People died in some pretty funny ways” after World War II. There was a lot of payback. He once had to do an autopsy on a man who came in in three pieces because he fell off a train, under the train. And he said to the men who brought in the body, “How do you fall off a train, under it?” And they said, “This is what happened.” And they gave him the body [laughs]. And I think there’s gonna be a lot of people falling off trains metaphorically, under metaphorical trains..

jim-nj:

trust issues aside, had an opp in college to read ALOT about the "Church" of Men since its founding....sure, we read about the evolution of "Christian Doctrine"--- but we also read much on the skank-assed clerics who have been way up there in the "Church's" chain of command.

one of my more devout Catholic professors was humorously sarcastic when it came to the Vatican level bureaucracy saying once, during a drawn out read of some mideval account of the "bawdy" lifestyles of cardinals and bishops--- "the Men in Red would have made penicillin a sacrament."

Watching French 24 TV in English and the lead story is this:

Brazil deploys army to border as Venezuela crisis deepens

Me, and John McCain: "Don't the Brazilians realize that by hiding behind their walls they are weakening their greatness?"

Apparently not. But surely one would think that if the worldwide MSM totally bought that bit of John McCain doggerel they've championed these last few days, they would have been the lead spokes-folks damning today Brazil for erecting military walls to prevent the overwhelming influx of illegal South American Venezuelan immigrants.

Brazil said it was sending armed forces to keep order near the Venezuelan border area, while Peru declared a health emergency, as a regional crisis sparked by thousands of Venezuelans fleeing economic collapse escalated on Tuesday.
