I have no horse in this race, but how the bloodline comment didn't cause more of a stir yesterday, seems odd.

I guess NP has taken a timeout from complaining about black athletes social media accounts

Almost 2 years ago I called a guy annoying and you're still harping on it as a racial comment.

Gee I wonder why anyone tries to hold you phonies to any sort of standard when the people you vote for say vile ****??
1. nobody cares what you said yesterday, let alone years ago.
2. worry about your own game, plenty there to keep you busy.
Dude just say wtf you want to say to me. Seriously.

Also, the clown has been bringing up me saying Juju was annoying for 2 years. So yeah, it seems like he cares.

I think you're the person the most like me here. we're abrasive, we swear for emphasis, we both seem insane to others. but you haven't broken out of your programming. I think you'd be a driving influence if you took a seat between the tracks for a while and disconnected yourself from emotions. Discard your gods, Its the fastest way forward. that's what i wanted to say to you.

The Trump administration has discussed whether to conduct the first U.S. nuclear test explosion since 1992 in a move that would have far-reaching consequences on relations with other nuclear powers and reverse a decades-long moratorium on such actions, said a senior administration official and two former officials familiar with the deliberations.

The matter came up at a meeting of senior officials representing the top national security agencies last Friday, following accusations from administration officials that Russia and China are conducting low-yield nuclear tests - an assertion that has not been substantiated by publicly available evidence and that both countries have denied.

A senior administration official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the sensitive nuclear discussions, said that demonstrating to Moscow and Beijing that the United States could "rapid test" could prove useful from a negotiating standpoint as Washington seeks a trilateral deal to regulate the arsenals of the biggest nuclear powers.

Because no one knows what in the world he was talking about.

My honest guess is he meant genes, like the Ford family has good breeding or something.

Speaking of, from last page.......

The man Trump called 'my African American' is leaving the GOP

He ran for Congress this year as an Independent in NorCal, but finished a distant 5th in the primary. Respect for stepping in the arena.

Some further reading....

Trump confirms US is withdrawing from another major arms treaty
President Donald Trump confirmed the US will be exiting the Open Skies Treaty, a pact designed to reduce the risk of military miscalculations that could lead to war, and said Russia's actions had prompted him to take the decision.

"Russia didn't adhere to the treaty, so until they adhere, we will pull out," Trump told reporters outside the White House Thursday.
The President predicted that the US withdrawal would force Moscow back to the table. "There's a chance we may make a new agreement or do something to put that agreement back together," Trump said. "I think what's going to happen is we're going to pull out and they're going to come back and want to make a deal."

Trump also denied that the withdrawal would increase tensions with Russia. "No, I think that we're going to have (a) very good relationship with Russia," the President said.

This is a shameful display of whataboutism, even by CNN's low water-carrying standards. They actually used the "some say" line.

When Republicans screw up, that is the story. When Democrats screw up, the Republican reaction to it is the story.

I listened to the audio of the incident. I think he was trying to make a joke. Obviously in the current climate you can’t say such things or you’ll get completely wrecked. Unless you’re Trump. Then you can say whatever batsh*t crazy thing you want to say and it has no impact on anything. I think that’s the thing these people like Biden and Pelosi don’t understand. Trump has the freedom to say whatever the f*ck he wants. The entire country is used to his nonsense. The only people that care anymore are the fringe left. And they give the Trumpers and anti anti Trumpers all the meat they can handle. Whether it’s fair or not, Biden will be held to a way higher standard. It’s just the way it is.
