There are 51 weeks of the year where it is not inappropriate to publish stories about how “terrible” America is. The week of the 4th of July just isn’t one of them. Multiple prominent American publications did exactly that.Vice did it not once but twice this holiday, beginning with “Everything About America Is Terrible Except for This July 4th Playlist” and twisting the knife again with “Here’s What Immigrants Think About the 4th of July.”Did Vice once stop to think that maybe it’s not a coincidence that American stars more than those of any other nation rise to literal worldwide fame? That maybe institutions such as free speech,

America is exceptional because we have individual liberty and secure property rights protected by the Constitution. Of course we are the richest country in the planet. Trump has made America wealthy again. Lower Taxes give incentive to work. Rising wages at 3%, GDP 3.2%, 12 million barrels/day, exporter of massive amounts of LNG and clean coal all make US rich. No Paris Climate Extortion and yet clean air and water. We have personal retirement 401k plans that give each of us a personal stake in the wealth of our nation. Stock market has added 9 Trillion in value since President Trump was elected. Peace and Prosperity under the guidance of our champion President Donald J. Trump. If you do not like it here, return to whence you came. The rest of us love America, our exceptional Nation.

The next best thing to taking down the Democrat's Ministry of Truth lie machines ("the press") would be letting take down themselves.

From your lips to God's ears,#3. I have recently included that thought in my daily prayers. I also ask for the success of those (few) outlets who report all facts truthfully regardless of how they feel about them personally. We do have freedom in this country so to those individuals who are fond of trashing the US I am here to remind them that they are FREE to LEAVE at any time they wish. I can almost guarantee they will not be missed. Why don't you put your money where your mouth is??

President Trump criticized the U.K. Ambassador to the U.S. Sir Kim Darroch after Darroch called the president "inept" and "incompetent" in leaked messages.Trump spoke to reporters Sunday, saying that Darroch had done a poor job of serving the United Kingdom's interests in the United States. Trump also said he had not seen the messages that were first reported in the press on Saturday. "We've had our little ins-and-outs with a couple of countries, and I would say that the U.K. and the ambassador has not served the U.K. well," Trump said.

In a Saturday interview, former first lady Michelle Obama insisted that Americans now dismiss the U.S. presidency because a black man was recently in the office. Speaking to TV host Gayle King during the 2019 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Obama exclaimed that husband Barack made the presidency “look too easy,” Fox News reported.“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job,” Michelle told the crowd.Obama also reminded the audience that she was often portrayed as “an angry black woman who was emasculating her husband.”

Six Democratic presidential candidates took the stage at the Essence Festival on Saturday, but it was a former inhabitant of the White House who got a rock star's welcome -- regardless of her tendency to deflect questions on the 2020 election. Former first lady Michelle Obama refused to comment on the Kamala Harris-Joe Biden "dust up," as moderator Gayle King called it, Saturday night, but Obama did reiterate a lot of her opinions surrounding the current political climate with a lot of color and to a lot of applause.

There are some things that are just not up for debate. These aren’t political issues. What happened in Florida didn’t center on MAGA hats, flag burning, or the merits of tax cuts. We actually had a high school principal question whether the Holocaust was a “historical, factual” event. The Palm Beach Post has the story. A mother of a student tried for a year to reason with the school administration to, you know, actually teach kids about this terrible period in human history without the nonsense. She wondered how this was being taught at the school. The emails between the parent and Spanish River High School Principal William Latson were

Toilet paper is getting less

Posted by NorthernDog 7/6/2019 9:51:39 PM Post Reply
Toilet paper – the one product that the majority of us use just once and flush away – is becoming less sustainable, according to research. Analysis from Ethical Consumer magazine found that major brands were using less recycled paper than in 2011, while only five of the nine major supermarkets (the Co-op, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose) offered an own-brand recycled toilet paper. The large-scale use of virgin paper contributes to unnecessary deforestation. The UK uses 1.3m tonnes of tissue a year, according to the Confederation of Paper Industries, with the average British consumer reportedly getting through 127 rolls every

Kamala Harris, calling on the nation to “deal with the racial wealth gap,” on Saturday proposed a $100 billion federal program to help black people buy homes. The California senator said the plan, which would provide down payment and closing cost assistance of up to $25,000 to people renting or living in historically red-lined communities, would help some 4 million home-buyers. The plan’s release comes as Harris surges in Democratic presidential primary polls following a debate last week in which she chastised former Vice President Joe Biden for his past opposition to busing and former associations with segregationist senators.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York from 2002 to 2005. The 66-year-old registered sex offender faces federal sex trafficking charges and is due to appear in court in New York on Monday. He was taken into custody by the FBI on Saturday after landing in New York following an overseas flight. Epstein's arrest comes after a New York federal appeals court ordered last week the release of 2,000 pages of judicial documents related to Epstein and his partner Ghislaine Maxwell, who are suspected of taking part in an international sex trafficking operation.

Sources familiar with the matter said at least one witness outside the Justice Department and FBI started cooperating -- a breakthrough that came after Attorney General William Barr ordered U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead a separate investigation into the origins of the bureau’s 2016 Russia case that laid the foundation for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. While the investigative phase of the inspector general’s long-running probe is said to be complete,

Nike has withdrawn a new Independence Day-themed shoe featuring the Revolutionary War-era flag after former NFL quarterback and Nike-endorser Colin Kaepernick complained that the flag was a symbol of the slave era, according to the Wall Street Journal. Nike offered a lame excuse that it had removed the shoe from retailers because “it featured an old version of the American flag.” In fact, it featured the American flag that was actually in use in 1776 on the original Fourth of July, and it is named for the pioneering Founding Mother to whom its design is commonly attributed, Betsy Ross. As it happens, a version of that very flag
