On the issue of surviving during hard times...

My friend Tom brought me free food for about 5 years, and I was sharing the food here at my apartment complex, we were feeding single moms, and we were helping to feed the children, etc. Then, one day I had the opportunity to cook for the man who was giving Tom the free food, his name was Richard, so I cooked a great big feast for the guy who was giving us the free food, and I cooked a huge wonderful meal for 14 homeless people. Richard said that I passed the test.

Tom, and my Uncle Dennis, helped to raise over $1,000,000.00 for charity to feed hungry people, they sold beer and hot dogs and ice cream and stuff at Angel Stadium and at the Rose Bowl, etc. They raised money for "Canning Hunger."

https://www.canninghunger.org/

Richard fed people in areas where it was against the law to feed the homeless. He was involved with feeding the hungry regardless of what the law said. He passed out sandwiches from The Olive Garden Restaurant to the homeless people in areas where it was against the law to feed the hungry.

Salute,

Tony V.

I suspect that John Boehner is chuckling today at the disarray in the US House as Nancy Pelosi struggles to keep her fragmented majority from destroying each other.


GOPers just don’t care.

Thanks for the link.

It would be nice if you could, you know, actually comment on the content on the link?

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/science-division-of-white-house-office-now-empty-as-last-staffers-depart/?fbclid=IwAR0b1ELPKLlxSYtfmB2IuBGHyG5UPvPBfaulcpzI_-XqhUKwKU9W1917cOY

(a) "All of the work that we have been doing is still being done," a White House official familiar with the matter told CBS News, adding that 35 staffers currently work across the OSTP.

I don't believe that it is still being done.

(b) "Under the previous administration, OSTP had grown exponentially over what it had been before," the official said. "Before the Obama administration, it had usually held 50 to 60 or so policy experts, director-level people, for all of OSTP."

The Obama administration staffed the OSTP with more than 100 employees.  Even if it were as high as 120, "exponentially" would mean X (before) +X^1. I do not think that word means what the official thinks it means.

Any of them will be better than the con job the GOP is running.

That won’t work for Red. He prefers gutting the economy.

Year after year he chooses to cheat America. One day it will catch up to him. The more fully his party undermines the IRS, he feels the further off the day of reckoning will be. Unfortunately, like his death, certain other things are also inevitable. Tick tock, Red. Tick tock.

The GOP is having a monster food fight (food fight between monsters?) over who gets to embezzle how much from which donors. They fail to build any wall, but the construct plentiful elaborate circular firing squads.

Yes lovely, charming, and  acceptable garb, not. She is the one chosen as the representative for her constituents. Would have never guessed she came from a third world shithole, not. Thank you BHO for bringing in your daddy's folks, not. Censored by her own party. Please ICE send her back so she can be happy again and not bother with a society of mostly infidels. "death to America"j, not.

Be much appreciated if you could add some brief explanation why this link is posted, and why in the Trump thread.
