    Ah YES! Waiting for the professional (honest) recount of votes started yester day in Maricopa county AZ. Sounds like if they prove fraud they will go to the other swing states and do the forensic (honest) recount also – Socialists sent 73 demazz lawyers down there couple days ago to stop the recount but it’s in progress now – I guess its live on OAN channel for the non believers and gay bar owner wannnna beeeees! -( PS peas) rumor is you might get some congress men and women flying in.

      If the recount shows the votes were counted correctly, will you believe it? Why did the republicans choose a right wing organization to count the votes? Why not choose a bi-partisan group?

    5 PM Friday the police were called to Wal Mart. A car full of thugs from chicago were causing a disturbance. As of 5:25 no shots were fired, but you could hear the thugs yelling and screaming half way across the parking lot. I left at that time so don’t know the outcome.

          Ah, ignorant douchebag. I dont have white guilt and I’m not an apologist. I can deal in truth and fact. Statistically black males commit violent crime at a higher rate than anyone. In mason city black faces keep ending up behind gun crime, in mason city the heroin and meth problem wasn’t what it was until section 8 brought all these garbage black males into town. You cant call facts racism you have to call these particular facts BLACK MALE VIOLENT CRIME. the vast majority of black males in this town and the country are idiots who refuse to speak proper English and are always involved in crime. I understand with an IQ averaging below forest bumps something like 87 that black males are to stupid to understand life doesnt imitate art, they’re to stupid not to emulate their favorite gangsta ass rap songs. They think they are cool and they think they matter. Sorry when you’re a pos who starts fights at walmart and shoot and stab people around town like idk twice a month at least. They are just useless wastes of oxygen and they should all be out back into their ghettos and forced to stay. They bring their ghetto to us and try to force us to live in it. That’s unfair. Yes as far as I’m concerned black males need to be controlled and incarcerated at birth for the crimes they will inevitably commit.

    Chips with Pico De Gayo
    Spa gay tti
    Thick sausage
    Gag me Goulash
    Bend me over Bacon
    PB & Gay sandwich
    and
    Desert: Packed Fudge, Fruitcake and peeled bananas on a stick

      He didn’t defend the girl but he did condemn the death of another Black person at the hands of the police. De-escalation is not a word that seems to be considered in these killings. I think the officer in this shooting did the right thing based on what I have seen so far but that doesn’t mean I condone the killing. What led the girl to lash out at these people?

        There was literally zero choice. Who cares what got that giant beast of a women to the point that she was fractions of a second from cold blooded murder. The cop in Columbus is a hero. I refuse to say orntype the name of the idiot who did everything she could to earn four legit bullets in her body. I refuse to say it for the same reason we.dont say the name of mass shooters, because I refuse to humanize a complete and utter piece of shit. That fat ignorant moron got exactly what her actions begged. It was a justified shoot. You’re not glad that someone wore the capacity to murder someone else with a knife lost their life? You understand the level of mental illness it takes to murder ppl for no reason? Double that with a knife attack. Its psychologically beyond the normal person’s capacity for violence to stab. That girl was just a sick foster kid who would more than likely have grown up to be a teen mom with neglect and drug abuse a part of her pattern, creatures of habit they cant help it. They are just more in tune with their animal side than the evolved races. 13/50.

      Hey, they have been victims since day one. They don’t have all the same exact opportunities as everyone else. We owe them alot for being white to them all these generations. They deserve more consideration, more welfare, more low income housing, more free money, anything and everything. You get the hell out of here with your 100% valid point’s. These idiot’s are the same as the anti gun idiot’s. They dont care that twice the amount of white ppl get shot, they just care about having an excuse to bitch and complain, loot and burn. Same as anti gunners dont care that the majority of gun crime happens on ghettos and is black on black, same as they dont wanna admit that stairs kill many many many more times the amount of ppl then ar15s can be blamed for each year. They dont care about common sense and facts because they have lots and lots of uninformed emotion being emboldened by the idiots around them and the media, they have it’s of 87 and a predisposition to animalistic violent behavior.

    Why is blm protesting the shooting of a 16 year old attempted murderer in columbus? The officer saved lives and did the right thing. When he took his four well aimed shots he was stopping a deadly attack with a knife, he saved someone’s life by mere inches and fractions of a second. No, warning shots are not a real life thing. No shooting extremities is not a real life thing(major arteries in the arms and legs make this notion a stupid, ignorant and idiotic thing to suggest) no a taser would not have helped. That knife would have found its mark in an innocent child’s throat. No it doesnt matter that the attempted murder claimed to be the initial victim, under that logic she called police and should have stayed inside, not left her home to commit assault with a deadly weapon while an adult male on her side proceeded to kick a child in the head. She left her home and became the aggressor, she continued to attempt to take a human life after an officer had shown up. He had no time to do anything other than what he did and he made the absolute correct choice and executed his training with a great degree of skill and restraint. BLM needs to be declared a dangerous terrorist organization and affiliation with the group should be a chargeable offense. This has got to stop. Maybe black people would prefer officers just stay out of their business? They are mad that a white officer stopped a murderer and saved black lives! Absolutely useless garbage humans. Maybe we should just have black and white communities that are separate. That way we can just have police in white america and black america can handle it’s own, since everyones racist against you, cops kill you with impunity and the entire world is unfair for you.

      Oh, you don’t “get it”? You don’t get it because a white girl would have been taken into custody alive and unharmed, then given a psych eval. THAT is why BLM is protesting. Until black people are given the chance to continue living the same way white people do they will continue to protest. Maybe it’s time you look to your own viewpoints and admit your racism.

        Ya if she was white somehow they would have been able to slow down time and stop that knife. You’re an idiot. Probably a black one too. Ya, admittedly I do not like you people, cuz you’re garbage. The officer had less than a second to react when that fat disgusting attempted murderer pinned a female to a car and was about to plunge a knife in her throat, anyone would have taken those four rounds, if you honestly think it would have gone different you’re more racist then I am. Mahkia got WHAT SHE DESERVED. She was a violent moronic useless pos without the mental tools to understand you dont stab people in front of police. So no I dont understand why you useless morons are upset. That girl did everything she could to get shot. She earned it. End of story. Why am I racist? Because before you losers moved to this town we didnt have heroin, stabbing and shootings every week, we didnt have black child molesters, we didnt have the problems we have now. Go back to chicagonamd Detroit cuz we hate you here. We pretend to be polite but we are simply tolerating you til your male family members get to shooting up our town and get away with it every time. Everytime you people stab or shoot someone you get slapped on the handx never any prison time. Trust the vast majority of white ppl do not like you and do not want you here.

    Waters responded to Greene’s criticism by calling it a distortion of her remarks.

    “I am not worried that they’re going to continue to distort what I say,” Waters told The Grio. “This is who they are and this is how they act. And I’m not going to be bullied by them.”

Less than 0.5% of Americans descendants are slave owners. Now let’s add in the fact that all colors pay taxes. Not to mention they were slaves for thousands of years by their own country before being traded to ship traders.

          When I got my shots at the old Sears absolutely no one was asked about insurance. They wouldn’t have had a clue whether I had medicare since I was never asked. My wife has blue cross and was never asked.

          It would have been impossible to bill the insurance companies since CG PH had zero information on our insurance status.

          Maybe your friend was billed for the covid test if he took one. But any bill for the shots should be disputed.

        I am on Medicare and wasn’t charged for my shot from our County Health Department. My wife isn’t on Medicare and she wasn’t charged either from the same County Health Department. If you were charged $600, you need to contact the police department.

            Who is the bill from? Where are they asking payment to be sent? I’ve had both my shots at the old Sears and have received no bills. I do have insurance through my workplace, but was never asked about it to get vaccinated.

    To summarize: Trump’s campaign chair and deputy campaign chair provided an internal strategy memo and private polling to a Russian agent who then passed it onto Russian intelligence agencies. The Kremlin then used that information to try to help Trump win the 2016 election.

      The Russians smelled weakness all over Trump, and played his big fat spoiled baby ass like a violin. Wily old spy Putin used the oldest trick in the book on Trump, and blackmailed him with dirty pictures of him getting peed on by a hooker. That’s how the Russians were able to put a huge military buildup into the arctic, within shouting distance of Alaska. It can probably be seen from Sarah Palin’s house.

      Disney did not buy Fox. You low information trumpettes need to get your sh*t together and have someone explain the news to you. Disney bought 20th Century Fox. Fox Sports and Fox Broadcasting join Fox News as assets that will help make up Fox Corporation — which is officially a stand-alone, publicly-traded company. It will begin trading on NASDAQ under the FOXA and FOX symbols. The company announced that former House Speaker Paul Ryan will join its board alongside Jacques Nasser and controlling shareholders founder Rupert Murdoch and CEO and chairman Lachlan Murdoch.
