As someone who does not like to fly, I do not appreciate reading the following developments, considering the recent hardware, software and everywhere fears I have of flying.

Mexico Will Never Pay

Submitted by ub on Mon, 03/11/2019 - 08:28

Do the math, the currency exchange rate between 1 United States Dollar equals 19.49 Mexican Pesos. How many pesos are 8 Billion Dollars?

Trump promised over and over again that Mexico would pay for his wall, so why does he now want American taxpayers to pay? And since we do not even know if @Realdonaldtrump pays any taxes, why should #USA be forced to pay?

The Boeing Company is an American multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, and missiles worldwide.

Are there similarities between the Ethiopian Airlines crash and the crash of a Lion Air flight last year? Both planes were brand new Boeing 737 Max 8s. What about the others?

As victims of Alabama’s deadly tornados pick up their lives, POTUS went on a bible signing tour that went as far as hugging the same type of folks he has reportedly used the term dumb southerner against and even mocked their southern drawl.

Just a few days before the devastating tornado which killed dozens in Alabama, he was making fun of their accent. How does a president make fun of people he swore to protect and represent?

Paul John Manafort Jr. is an American lobbyist, political consultant, and convicted felon. The Republican joined Donald Trump's presidential campaign team in March 2016 and was promoted to campaign chairman from June to August 2016.

Paul Manafort’s slap on the wrist is a good example of American injustice in action While in school I may have spent more time in detention and inside the principals' office than he will now serve in his prison sentence.

How Does It Feel?

Submitted by ub on Fri, 03/08/2019 - 04:33

Could it be happening here again that our government has decided to make a list of anyone who speaks for truth and justice for all?

Are we still living in a Democracy, is it a Monarchy, Republicanism, ToTaliTarianism, Fascism, DicTaTorship, Communism, or oliGarchy?

An enemies list is the name of what starts by identifying political opponents who are compiled by government officials who they feel are subversive, or somehow threaten the state, if they dare to disagree or question certain actions.
