    Man High as a Kite Resists Arrest; Has Covid

    Yeah, back in the day, cops knew some first aid. I guess hiv changed all that...even the ems didn’t do anything. If someone had done cpr soon after his heart stopped, they might’ve brought him back. But whose going to risk their life to help a hysterical arrestee?

    Trump promises permanent cut to payroll tax funding Social Security and Medicare if he’s reelected

    So, vote for me and I'll give you money. If you have a job, that is. It'll be interesting to see if people go for it, after decades of SS going broke talk.

    She's going to blow

    When was law and order? 60’s? 70’s? Violent crime almost quadrupled from 1960 to 1990. Manufacturing is gone(largely), and that’s a good. The fewer people we need to make all the stuff, the better. The Republicans implemented the Southern Strategy in the 70’s. I don’t know where you get your...

    Trump's Niece's Book - Too Much And Never Enough

    I got the book from the library, surprisingly after only two weeks in reserve. I think it’ll become a standard reference on DT. A couple of things...Trump’s mother told Mary Trump that DT never listened to or obeyed her, and that she was relieved when he was sent away. And his banishment to...

    President Dear Leader Commuted Hero Roger Stone's Sentence

    I've read the opposite: Stone can plead the fifth with a commutation. That would justify, to Trump, a commutation instead of a pardon.

    NYC's 6th borough? The US's 51st state? The SU's 16th republic? Australia's 7th state?

    NYC trivia: when the 5 boroughs were formed, the Bronx and Manhattan were NYC. The other boroughs demanded they separate, lest they be too powerful.

    The Battle Over Your Money

    That's due to politics. We could've nationalized the banks, but chose not to. Free Market Private Enterprise etc.

    The Battle Over Your Money

    I thought the income inequality started a bit later, like the 80's. NYC's brush with bankruptcy started that ball rolling, and that was in 1975.

    What if Jews are just better?

    Seems to me the poorest people have the largest families. I believe also that in nature, the lush, food ridden, low threat environments tend to mature later and produce fewer offspring.
