    *For once, I agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi—our country is in a constitutional crisis. However, I strongly disagree with her on the cause. I put the blame at her feet and those in the Democratic Party who follow her, along with many in the media. For the last two years all we have heard about was Russian collusion. After the Mueller report was released, Speaker Pelosi and her followers just cannot accept the fact that no collusion was found. She is the leading cause of this crisis. It might be good for Speaker Pelosi to listen to her fellow Democrat, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, who said after the Mueller report was released—It’s time to move on! Nancy is a constitutional crises…and many others like her..

    *The Trump administration on Friday moved forward with a proposed rule to make it harder for illegal immigrants to access federally subsidized housing — the latest crackdown by the administration on immigrants who use public assistance. The rule, proposed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and posted in the Federal Register, would require that those seeking public housing would be subject to verification of their immigration status. Only families in which every member is either a citizen or a legal resident would qualify for federally subsidized housing. Currently families where at least one person is either a citizen or green card holder can get federal assistance, even if other family members are not. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime,” the official said..

    It would have been a breach of Constitutional law for Barr to release an un-redacted version to Congress because there is Grand Jury information and witness names which are forbidden. Also, Congress was given opportunity to view a version with only 7 redactions and not 1 Democrat took advantage of that opportunity! This is simply more grandstanding!

    Let’s take a deep breath, hold it and exhale and repeat. We should seek out bipartisanship to benefit all Americans. We need to figure out how to have a “living” wage and health care so benefits can be reduced. Working is great, but full time on minimum wage (even with two workers in the home) cannot support a family. If we come together, problems can be solved. This would include leaving the “Hastert” rule behind, learning to listen to others (including those of the other “party), treating each other with civilty (which should eliminate name calling and derogatory nicknames) and learning to compromise which most often leads to the best solution all around.

    Obama and Hillary were in full panic mode, so Ambassador Stevens was sent to Benghazi to retrieve the rest of the Stinger Missiles. This was a “do-or-die” mission, which explains the Stand Down Orders given to multiple rescue teams during the siege of the US Embassy.
    So, we have a traitor as POTUS in Obama who is not only corrupt, but compromised, as well and a Sec.of State In Clinton who is a serial liar, who perjured herself multiple times at the Congressional Hearings on Benghazi.

    Music Man Square closed for repair and reorganization. Translation: it’s still in big trouble. The latest screwup manager doesn’t know what she’s doing, and Ventura’s Dalena Barz doesn’t want anybody who knows what they’re doing on the board or running it because she wants control. The other board members are just there to have something for their resumes and don’t do anything, and most of them don’t live in Mason City either. Before we give them a dime of our tax money, we should make it a requirement that all the board members and the manager have to live in Mason City.

I never do because after a couple of Black Russian drinks, I know I am here on a whim of the creator, sent here to either annoy people terribly or make them laugh and realize they need to not take themselves so seriously.

    Now is the time to point out to any businesses that play CNN to change channels due to their non truthful reporting and low ratings. I got my Doctors Office to switch to FOX.
    The Commie News Network is circling the drain. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving pack of liars. Good riddance.
    Maybe a wealthy Christian will buy it, and call it CNN – Christian News Network. No matter what, it would be an improvement over the lying “journalists” who would immediately be fired, and real journalists installed.
    CNN just doesn’t get it. They are out of touch with the American public. Americans want to hear good things about our country and its president. We are tired of the lies and negativity from CNN. They are their own worst enemy

    41 years ago, I met a man who taught electronics and Electro-Mechanical theory. He chomped a cigar during class, and had all the attributes of an experienced guy. His wit was infectious.

    A few years later, I worked for a man who was bright, again witty, and knew how to motivate all that were in his employ. Hard working, he was respected by his peers, and had a very profitable territory.

    And yes, both were black, and both lived in Chicago. Their race made no difference to me and most others.

    Then when I read comments here about how bad blacks are, about how worthless they are, I just cringe. The people who make such comments, ignore the fact that there are many people of all races, who are drug users, drunks, vulgar, slothful, and uneducated.

    I am not by any means standing up for those who behave badly, but against bias based only on the color of one’s skin or nationality.

      Nice speech. However, when all you see is black people being arrested for many different crimes, ganged up in the streets fighting, letting the rent houses they live in go to hell and destroying neighborhoods, acting stupid and having no respect for anyone else what else can one think. Now, I am sure there are decent black people, but, I haven’t met or seen any. They came here from Chicago and Detroit to start a new better life and the run drugs and do the same things they hated about Chicago. The onus is on them to at decent, not us to accept criminals.

        The onus sir, is for everyone to act decent. In addition, society demands that we behave in a civilized manner. Lastly, our country was founded on the belief that everyone was equal.

        Yet, so many still in this day and age, equate one group or another to be less than equal.

        As I said before, there exists uncivilized, self-destructive, and slothful behavior, and it is not the sole domain of one race or another. I am sorry you are blind to that fact.

    Shocking footage of children in a Philadelphia Islamic center has emerged that shows them saying that they would “chop off…heads” for Allah. Yep, right here in America.
    Muslim children in the U.S. were taught to sing about decapitating Americans.

    CNN wrote over 20 negative stories on Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, and NONE about the Pennsylvania Muslim kids allegedly singing about chopping people’s heads off.

        Allen, I followed your link, investigated and researched the truthfulness of the story and I find it is true. But like most stories today, liberal or conservative, it doesn’t tell all the truth and the headline is ‘click-bait’ in that it sensationalizes one aspect of the story in order to generate clicks on their site. The more clicks the more revenue. The part of the above post where the author is lying is when he says “Yep, right here in America.
        Muslim children in the U.S. were taught to sing about decapitating Americans” Two things are wrong about the statement. First, he copied and pasted the story and then added his commentary. The statement is inaccurate in that Muslim children did sing a song about chopping off heads but, if you read the articles, in was done as a way of acknowledging their ancestors. I think it is a poor choice and a poor way to teach about the past but I also don’t think it is the beginning of the Muslim takeover of the USA. The 1st poster tries to get people angry hoping to see a lot of banter back and forth. When someone posts something he likes or feels the same about, he feels good because he believes everyone else sees how smart he is. The problem is it’s usually only 1 or 2 who agree with him, but to him, it’s the world.
