Maybe Colin Kelly...
 
Does anyone here know who he was?

I don't know what a breitbart is. I rarely look at the links.
 
I usually look at the responses to links.

Oh, he was. Probably still is.
 
This just shows how little respect they have for him. He sold his soul to Putin and got nothing in return. Well, that's not exactly true. The country got nothing in return. He got sweet loans from Russian banks and oligarchs when no bank with any sense would touch him. Maybe he's just paying them back the only way he can afford to.

Nice try but "Trump is colluding with the Russians" is far more plausible than, say, "Sandy Hook was faked"
 
After all he did cop to giving them secret Israeli intelligence. Among many other pieces of real evidence out there.

So? Barack Obama's mother falsifying information, something that has
happened many, many times, to give her child US citizenship is even
more plausible than that. It's still trafficking in things for which
there is no evidence.

I don't know how LA did. I would think that if you could use existing venues,
as they mostly did, it wouldn't be too bad. But hundreds of millions
in capital expenditure would seem to make it stupid to hold one.

Surprised this article didn't mention a story I heard on the radio last week that the IOC is thinking of awarding 2024 to Paris and then going ahead and giving 2028 to LA now. The worry is that with so many cities dropping out and losing interest, no one else will be interested after this and they want to lock in those two cities while they are willing.
 
The reason Paris would go first, from what I remember, is that they had financing in place that was less flexible, while LA can do either year fine.

I think the success of the TP was due to the timing.
 
With a traitorous socialist half-breed president, real Americans were
obligated to react just as they did in 1776,
 
Benedict Arnolds will always be countered by Nathan Hales.
 
If that gives credibility to BLM, so be it.

There will always be unhappy people - mostly because LBJ's and Obama's
legislated equality didn't make them equal. Oddly enough that doesn't
have anything to do with race.

Turns out there really was a lack of anything better to do.
 
Moving the shirts and tweeting it was kinda cool. But apparently, analysis is needed!
 
http://www.womenyoushouldknow.net/because-i-moved-5-shirts-portrait-of-an-unexpected-twitter-storm/
 
a quote (let me know if you get through that word salad because I sure couldn't):
 
The most important critiques are the comments faulting the tweet for being unanchored to intersectional feminism. This construct was initially established to address the combined impact of simultaneously experiencing both sexism and racism of Black women in the US. For the many white women who amplified my tweet and are planning their own disruptive campaigns, please consider how white women feminists historically & contemporarily center white women's issues within feminism. Anyone who visited threads in Pantsuit Nation or the March for Women encountered numerous examples of white feminism stubbornly disinclined to recognize or work to dismantle disparities or to include and prioritize diverse women within the central platform. Across faith, race, dis/ability, ethnicity, LBTQQIA, and poverty, addressing disparities of the lived experiences among women at intersections is too often delayed, disdained, and derailed by many white feminists. So when PoC confront something- like me making extra work for low-wage workers- I pay attention. Because it matters.

HOPE, Maine — While jogging on a familiar, overgrown, wooded
trail near her home on a recent warm afternoon, Rachel Borch
thought to herself, "what a beautiful day."
 
In the midst of appreciating the weather and scenery, she looked
ahead and noticed a raccoon obstructing the narrow foot path,
baring its tiny teeth.
 
Suddenly, it began "bounding" toward her, Borch recalled
Wednesday afternoon during an interview at her home on Hatchet
Mountain Road in Hope.
 
"I knew instantly it had to be rabid," said Borch, who remembers
ripping out her headphones and dropping her phone on the ground.
The raccoon eventually attached itself to her thumb, and Borch
found that she couldn't get the animal to release its grip. When
she noticed that she had dropped her phone in a puddle, she
realized she could drown the raccoon to free herself. So…she did.
 
"With my thumb in its mouth, I just pushed its head down into the
muck," Borch said.
 
With the animal belly-up, she held its head under water. "It was
still struggling and clawing at my arms. It wouldn't let go of my
thumb," she said.
 
Borch said she held it there for what felt like an eternity until
finally it stopped struggling and "its arms sort of of fell to
the side, its chest still heaving really slowly."
