And for the twits who can't read tweets ... ;)

Charles Barkley on Politicians: 'They Divide And Conquer'
"Man, I think most white people and Black people are great people," Barkley said. "I really believe that in my heart, but I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they're Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer."

"I truly believe in my heart most white people and Black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and Blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class.' I truly believe that in my heart."

So United Airlines is going to hire 5,000 “people of color or women” to be pilots.

How about you fuckers hire the best PILOTS. Nobody gives a shit what color they are, or whether they have a penis or a vagina. I want the best PILOTS behind the stick. This might be the worst application of being “woke” and virtue signaling that I’ve ever seen. I guess as the plane goes down, the passengers will all be saying “well, at least our pilot was a woman!”

Investigators are examining whether Mr. Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws, the people said. A variety of federal statutes make it illegal to induce someone under 18 to travel over state lines to engage in sex in exchange for money or something of value.
This go anywhere? :coffee:

While I don’t think Obama in a muslim now, he was born to a muslim father, grew up in a muslim country, amd went to a muslim school. So thinking he is (or was) one isn‘t off the wall crazy.

I was born in a Christian country to a Christian father, but went to a public school.

What's funny is too many of the anti-Citizens United proggies will lap this up and cheer it on...and won't realize talking about this stuff is a way for Corporate America to steer the national conversation away from corporate taxes and the corporate cracking down on non-MSM.

Kudos to people like Glenn Greenwald who are consistent enough to call this nonsense out.

The Steak-umm corporate account taking a baseball bat to Neil deGrasse-Tyson's dome is the Twitter we need to see more often. :lol:
