As a Ford truck guy my whole life this really disappoints me. Ford didn't take the TARP bailouts in 2008. I know they took some govt loans, but as far as I know those were repaid back. GM ended up converting their loans to equity owned by the government.

I'm not happy with Ford right now. I thought they were better than this.
its not their fault anyway, see the tax on corporation and biden is trying to increase taxes on business and corporations. not fair/profitable i guess for business to stay in USA.

From the New York Times
Court Vindicates Black Officer Fired for Stopping Colleague's Chokehold

Read just three sentences:
"What she encountered was a white officer who appeared to be “in a rage” punching a handcuffed Black man in the face repeatedly as other officers stood by.
Horne, who is Black, heard the handcuffed man say he could not breathe and saw the white officer put him in a chokehold. At that point, court documents show, she forcibly removed the white officer and began to trade blows with him."

In 3 sentences, 5 times a persons' color is mentioned. While accusing all whites of being racist, it seems all they are able to focus on is somebody's color. THEY are the ones stirring up race conflict. THEY are the ones bring race into everything they can. Notice also that black is capitalized, white isn't.

This PSA (for lack of a better word) appeared on CBS 4/15 right before an episode of Young Sheldon. It raised some questions in my mind:
  • Have we gotten to the point we have to "make a stand" on behalf of each individual race or nationality whenever one or more is wronged, attacked or murdered?
  • Does this mean that they do NOT "...stand united against racism, hatred, violence and attacks against..." races, ethnic groups or nationalities that are NOT listed?
  • Because of omission does this mean they do NOT hold the same stand for ALL races? How about whites? What about blacks?
  • If that is not the case, then the author needs to go back to basic English and sentence structure and learn how to word a statement.....
  • I wonder also just what the heck constitutes a "community" in the author's mind ?

My first post in this thread and I gotta say the hypocrisy probably makes me more crazy than anything. Imagine what a different country this would be if we just had a fair and balanced media. Ever noticed news articles about politicians in a scandal? If it's a Republican it's in the headline, if it's Democrat you gotta read way down in the article to find out. Hell there've been a few where it never said, I had to do a search to find out they were Democrats.

Am I reading this correctly? It sounds to me like court ordered socialism, state provided housing for anybody that wants it.

Federal Judge: L.A. Must House Every Homeless Person on Skid Row by Oct. 18
A long with LA's new $1000 a month "income" they are going to be giving to low income folks.

"The selection criteria for participant households is still being developed, but will likely include supporting a child under the age of 18 and a demonstrated medical or financial hardship connected to COVID-19, "

I would have thought that to be a string, but I'm not educated on the new doublespeak.

"No strings attached" :rolleyes:
In that article, I question their polls, data and poor attempts at reasoning. For instance:

"Full-time employment increased for people receiving the $500 a month by 12 percent, compared to five percent in the control group."
and
"Liberals dismiss the idea that cash assistance makes people lazy..."

So pleaz 'splain to me, Lucy...why so many fast food restaurant dining rooms are closed around here? Only the drive-thru's are open. According to the owners and managers, it's not because of COVID...it's because they can't get anyone to work! The extra unemployment payment extensions have kept people at home! The lazy ones, anyway. Why go back to work when you get paid MORE to stay home than you got when you were working!

So thank you, governor, for this action ==>> Governor Kay Ivey Announces End of Participation in All Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation Programs

Their ignorance amazes me sometimes...

I still don't know how anyone can live off unemployment in CA. I was getting the max in between jobs and it's worthless unless you're under rent control.

From the suburbs of communist Portland:
Clackamas commissioner who compared vaccine passports to Jim Crow laws stripped of duties
" I do not believe that the references of Jim Crow – regardless of history – support the greatest good for Clackamas County,” County Chair Tootie Smith said. "

Yet I don't read any criticism in the media about the hundreds of Jim Crow pronouncements by the liberals. Two of many examples:
Democratic walkout blocks Texas voter bill – for now. Only Congress can save voting rights.
Obama says GOP backlash to first Black president reflects 'the history of America'

And a bonus from the other side of the border:
Oregon Senate votes unanimously to observe Juneteenth as official state holiday

These are the images you can 'safely' post. There's crap that will make you vomit that goes on at these sick and disgusting demonic events. Never do they get reported on, or any of the adults arrested.

Ten years ago this would've brought child abuse charges.
