      China has 64 million new empty apartments as a complete uninhabited city. If real or imagined refugees wish a new start in life, suggest sending them there to have that opportunity where they could build a life and live off their own efforts and ideology.

      By the way, whatever happened to that bunch of muslim invaders that Australia wanted us to take because they were not good enough for the Australians? Obama had agreed to and Trump objected.

    Just wanted to share yet ANOTHER example of a race which turned after election night – this, in largely rural central IL.

    A Republican County Sheriff candidate had won by 99 votes. After the mail-ins and provisionals, the Dem “Chubby” was just announced a couple days ago as the winner BY ONE VOTE!

    Why does this ALWAYS favor the Dems? Did this guy eat some of the R ballots?

            tell the truth-many states refused to cooperate and submit voter information so the Commission was disbanded and quietly turned over to DHS. This has now been categorized under National Security “Infrastructure” allowing them to monitor whatever is going on. I believe they are to submit a report within 45 days after the election. I am hopeful that they caught a lot of voter fraud across the country.

    Two Cellos;
    Hauser, born in Pula, Croatia, and Šulić, born in Maribor, Slovenia, are classically trained musicians. They met at a master class in Pula while still in their teens. Šulić—the younger of the two by a year— attended the Academy of Music in Zagreb, and then studied in Vienna. Šulić later entered London’s Royal Academy of Music. Hauser attended the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, after completing his studies at Trinity Laban in London.[

    These two are excellent….this video is classic….Look at the snob liberals reaction in the crowd along with the children…..

    I think the crowd reaction and their cello work.. enjoy and have a nice weekend…

      I agree their skill in amazing.

      But… Isn’t the “audience” simply actors playing a role? Isn’t what you refer to as the “snob liberals reaction” just a part of the script?

      That’s how I’ve taken it the few times I’ve watched this video over time. Never thought the “audience” was anything more than part of the “music video”.

      I’ll have to re-consider that opinion, I suppose – but I just watched snippets from the link, and it still seems that way to me.

        How can whether or not they’re paid actors even be a question? They’re wearing Marie Antoinette 18th century clothing. They’re in costumes. It’s no different than a Van Halen video where they rock the “teachers” into a dumbfounded daze. Or how Hot for Teacher was not a documentary.

          That is my take. I didn’t know what “period” it was, exactly, but it did look like the video was meant to be an “anachronistic period piece”. The audience reaction is whatever they wanted it to be.

          That was my confusion – the “snob liberals reaction” is part of the performance (and, to me, probably not “liberal” but probably more “overly conservative and shocked”).

      The Indians (Native Americans) had an open border policy.They handed out welfare to the caravan and gave them land to settle on. By the time they realized their mistake it was too late and they lost their country. You would think out government would have learned by this.

        Couple of native tribal chiefs made out pretty well…they got all the trinkets and prettiest squaws. Thought they would be protected in their reinforced teepees guarded by the strongest warriors, prayed over by medicine men and consuming huge amounts of peyote.
        But they were wrong. They all got slaughtered by the migrants.

        About the pilgrims:

        “…They had the right mindset of knowing that private property did exist. Not everything belonged to the king. The king didn’t have the authority to take from somebody else and give to them. Which was largely as they begin building their colony. They realize okay, if the Indians own this land, we’re going to have to work out a negotiation that we can be on this property…

        They even asked for the Indian’s permission to drive cattle across the Indian’s land. I mean they didn’t assume it was theirs just driving cattle across. They would get permission before they did that first. And as their governor pointed out and said, “There’s not a square foot of land that we own that we did not purchase from the Indians with title deed at their permission at their price.”

      I’m pretty cynical about our chances too, but would prefer that we go down fighting rather than (just) complaining. Which is why I hang out here rather than a hundred other sites that are nothing but “we’re losing, we’re doomed, it’s over.”

        I don’t think that we doomed either. If the worst came to the worst I confident that the left would get crushed.
        I just don’t hold out much hope that the left will respect democracy and let us re-build the country to how it should be.

          I’m at a point where I wish we were talking about splitting the country in two rather than trying to bring left and right together (which I believe is impossible). Otherwise we’re going to be fighting this battle literally to the death (i.e. the rest of our lives).

          I read the link and gave it much thought at dinner tonight.

          Keeping a democracy will always be a battle. Nothing stays the same forever.

          Seems we are in a big change from old dems to new dems from the rino’s/uniparty vs the party of Trump.

          Do I think the left and right can work together… I don’t see it. I see a split happen.

          However one item that is not mention is something that the EU mocks us for. Our love of guns. Love it or hate it this is one card most other places don’t have.

          And this country has fighters and patriots. Maybe not out in the media open. But when I see a Trump rally I know we have not rolled over.

          And that is the reason why Trump works is because he is trying AND he is so positive. That ‘yes we can’ feel. I also feel like if we have people who connect with the young who have walked away and see they can. Sometimes you only need that spark.

          So I think the article paints the worst pic out there but it might be good to read something like this and say: ‘That could happen, lets make damn sure it doesn’t.’

          And I don’t think that’s the wine talking!! 😀

            I think the same. I tend to stay positive when I note the enthusiasm at Trump rallies. And I like to think we represent all the great things in this country.

            teach history in our schools, real history. And make civic classes a requirement. Show the snowflakes what makes this country great. The people who stood together to make this country the greatest in history.

            I don’t think working on compromise with Dems will ever work. That party is morphing into an ideology that spells doom for America. Dems need to be pounded into dust.

              And the Dems are falling into an ideology that has been tried again and again.

      Well, that was a cheery little read…late at night…the day after Thanksgiving.
      Sadly, it is difficult to present an argument against it..
      The saddest thing is that this writer – nor anyone else for that matter – presents a plan – or even a scenario – for how to make this (a successful separation) happen. And I, for one, do not count an all out shooting gig as a successful separation.
      So, bottom line is…how would we make this happen?

        Scrap the 17th amendment and restore the 10th to it’s proper place so state law overrules federal law. Strip Washington of most of its power and Scrap all federal agencies except those for defense and immigration. conservatives could then move to Red States and morons to Blue.
        In that way we would all be free to live as we please. We were never supposed to have a centralized government.

    OMG, this article had me laughing out loud at certain points. More “Left Eating the Left”.

    Powells is a bookstore in Seattle and Portland, OR. VERY trendy, VERY hip. Brings in Leftwing speakers all the time, etc etc.

    Hired a trans who I guess refuses to label self w/ “Him/Her”, insists on “They/Them” or some nonsense. Causing all kinds of trouble for Powells and the comments are funny, too.
