Not very woke. Everyone knows there are more than two genders.

This may be an owomen.
Maybe he is womenstruating.
When he goes to a restaurant, he asks for a womenu.
Clearly he needs a womentor to help deal with his womental issues.

Does "bless your heart" fall under a gendered wording?

You mean a Republican-Controlled Senate investigation found that? Really? You know...not so long ago...a Democrat Controlled House investigation found that Trump committed an offense that should have resulted in him being removed from office. Did you go with that one?

A Charlotte sports bar is pleading for people not to boycott the business after someone shared on social media that a far-right group associated with white supremacists visited there this weekend.

The fact Trump released his whole phone call undercuts your argument. Everyone who cared about it, read the transcript.

In other news, SeattleGriz's son, earned his first college credits as a freshman in high school.

Don't know what to say about that, beings he is only a freshman and it makes me question college education these days, but I'll take it!

Don't knock it. UNI88.2 started college as a sophomore due to AP credits.

UNI88.3 is a HS sophomore who has struggled with online learning so I was trying to help her with her math and it was over my head and I took Calc 1 & 2 in college.

Open season in OK!
OKLAHOMA CITY – A mythical, ape-like creature that has captured the imagination of adventurers for decades has now become the target of a state lawmaker in Oklahoma.

A Republican House member has introduced a bill that would create a Bigfoot hunting season. Rep. Justin Humphrey’s district includes the heavily forested Ouachita Mountains in southeast Oklahoma, where a Bigfoot festival is held each year near the Arkansas border. He says issuing a state hunting license and tag could help boost tourism.

“Establishing an actual hunting season and issuing licenses for people who want to hunt Bigfoot will just draw more people to our already beautiful part of the state,” Humphrey said in a statement.

Ted Cruz & 5 other conk senators have reintroduced a constitutional amendment that would limit the number of years a person can serve in the Senate to twelve (two terms). Kudos to them, even though it won't go anywhere. Get Senators on record, as the majority of the electorate is for this.

Yeah, Salons hit piece on Cotton is nothing more than a FAKE NEWS absurdity hit piece smear.
Maj. Gen. Scott Miller, commander of all Army infantry and armor training and education, told the graduates… “You’ll leave Victory Pond today with a small piece of cloth on your shoulder, but more importantly, you carry the title of Ranger from here on out,” he said.
Saturday, retired Command Sgt. Maj. Rick Merritt, a former regimental sergeant major of the 75th Ranger Regiment, defended Cotton, saying the latter’s statements had been accurate.

Merritt said in a telephone interview that the attacks on Cotton’s record are “so absurd.” “It’s unfair. It’s almost slanderous,” Merritt said. “He’s 100% a Ranger. … He will always be a Ranger.

I love all the stories from the armchair Rangers. They hold up Vindman, but Cotton is a turd.

Charleston is full...quit showing up!

So is Charlotte. The town in live in, Fort Mill, is a bedroom community of Charlotte, is the fastest growing city in SC. There was a report last month that Charlotte now has a larger population than San Francisco.

And let me guess, the top 2 states outsides the Carolinas that people are moving from are NY and NJ?

I figure most of those fleeing CA are going to (in the above map) TX, AZ, CO, WA, while those fleeing NY & NJ are primarily going to FL, the Carolinas, & TN..
