Trumped Again

Submitted by ub on Fri, 09/23/2022 - 08:58

Donald Trump's greatest power has been rushing the death of his projects by being a cheater, a born loser, and a habitual liar.

Supposedly taste trumps most if not all other factors when consumers choose products or politicians, but this is definitely the exception.

The Trump Organization has reportedly been responsible for misleading information about his finances to the public, the media, and the real estate firm’s lenders. Now it's all being used during investigations that could cost him millions and his ability to remain in business.

Warzone NYC: Mayor Eric Adams reveals two refugee-style CAMPS to deal with the migrant crisis - and taunts Texas and Florida for 'abdicating their moral duty to support arriving asylum seekers
Eric Adams revealed plans to open two refugee-style camps for the thousands of incoming migrants
One of the sites will be in Orchard Beach, in the Bronx, but the location of the second hasn't been confirmed
He claimed it proved his moral triumph over Texas and Florida, who he claims turned their backs on the issue
The vast majority of the migrants say they want to come to New York, a sanctuary city where their chances of being turned in to ICE are slimmer
Florida Gov. Ron de Santis and Texas' Greg Abbott sent them duly north - to the outrage of Adams and others
The Republicans say it calls the bluff of the rich liberal elite who claim to be pro-immigration without living through the true scale of the crisis…

A Breast Cancer Epidemic

Submitted by ub on Thu, 09/22/2022 - 10:20

There are more than 3.8 million women and thousands of American men living with breast cancer throughout the United States.

This year alone, approximately 339,250 new breast cancer cases will be diagnosed in women, 287,850 invasive and 51,400 in situ, and 2,710 new cases in men. In the United States alone, an estimated 43,250 women and 530 men will die. We still do not know what causes breast cancer, how to prevent it, or how to stop it from metastasizing or cure it once it does. Breast cancer is a political issue that remains an urgent health crisis.

The walls are closing in on the entire Trump clan and it now shows. Papa Donald is panicking and will soon become unhinged.

The Donald has spent most of his 76 years inflating his wealth, boasting about his fake achievements and exaggerated abilities, but New York State’s civil lawsuit, which is over 280 pages long, is the first time his carnivalesque business practices have exposed him to existential legal consequences.

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows off its capabilities closer to home with its first image of Neptune. Not only has Webb captured the clearest view of this distant planet’s rings in more than 30 years, but its cameras reveal the ice giant in a whole new light.

Three Times A Lady

Donald Trump's support among Republican voters has significantly eroded as three powerful women score gains in American courts.

Trump must be having recurring nightmares about three powerful women on a mission of enforcing the laws of the land and teaching #AgentOrange R-E-S-P-E-C-T while also performing their jobs to the best of their ability.

Letitia isn’t the only one the former guy needs to be worried about. There are at least two others. Fani and Liz may take him down could possibly land the three strikes that take him out.

The End Rationalism

The following paragraphs gleaned from recent articles offer what’s happening in Florida with similar bills passed in other states.

Personally, I think we’ve devolved into an “anti-intellectual” period of thought similar to the one when Savonarola (Florence, 1452-1498) organized his bonfires of the vanities:

“Gov. Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 1467, which requires school districts to give parents a say in selecting instructional materials, including library books and textbooks.

Cuban Dancing

As a proud Cuban-American, I ask why our dances are the most popular, lively, and passionate forms of movement in the entire world.

These dances are characterized by delicate and sensual movements and provide both the practitioners and spectators with an unforgettable experience.

Cuban dance is as unique as the music that accompanies it. Cuban culture is highly diverse and one of the most interesting ways to begin to understand Cuban people is by exploring, watching, and trying the various dance forms which are popular here.

There is a new abnormal at The United Nations General Assembly after three years of video conferences due to the global pandemic.

To anyone out there:
I only ask that you care before it’s too late,
That you live aware and awake,
That you lead with love in hours of hate."

Listen as Amanda Gorman reads her new poem, "An Ode We Owe," before the U.N. General Assembly…

Americans are the citizens and nationals of the United States of America. Although direct citizens and nationals make up the majority of Americans, many dual citizens, expatriates, and permanent residents could also legally claim American nationality.
