Other than that, though, it's a real emergency.  And an invasion.

heehee!

There is a virus of weirdness spreading...right now we have Richard Branson's live aid tuning up on the Colombia side of the bridge and on the Venezuela side, 300 meters away, Maduro's Hands Off Venezuela concert also tuning up.  War of the amps?  Woofermageddon?

Hello people that live in my computer and are reliably holding forth the political debates of the day.

It's nice to see all of you again.

I'm involved in a project to grow 1,000 acres of high grade CBD Hemp. We have already sold three years worth of production (there's a contract, but it is not without risks)

The result is that I have entered into the most manic stage of my entire life. When it's over, if you're interested, I'll be glad to tell the tale.

In the meanwhile, hello everyone, I'm gladdened by the static nature of your presence.

PLAU,

Itzme, you mean when you were posting here earlier, that WASN'T the most manic stage?

JK.  Want to hear the tale when the time is ripe.  CBD is the medicinal non-psychoactive oil, right?

It bothers me the way videos are often edited, so that viewers don't really see what was before and after.  It's bad enough when the viewer's vision is already clouded by someone else's narrative and their own preconceptions.  Where I live, I've witnessed enough mocking behavior towards Lakotas to recognize that dynamic... I'm an insecure teen, I need to be a smartass, it's no longer cool to show open disrespect to other people of color, but hey there's still that old squaw on that bench over there.  Here's my old squaw accent I learned from an old B western.

Trump getting ready to pardon Kraft.

The President also pushed back against the solicitation allegations, emphasizing that the 77-year-old widower “denies” any wrongdoing. But authorities said the franchise owner, who has a residence in Palm Beach, was twice caught on video paying women for sexual favors at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter.
 
“We’re equally as stunned as everyone else,” Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr said, adding that the footage includes prostitutes involving the NFL billionaire.
Kraft has long been a frequent visitor to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, located about 30 minutes away from the massage parlor he’s accused of visiting.
The pair met more than 20 years ago, when the President invited him to play a round of golf at his Florida club.
 
“Loyalty is important to me, and he has been a wonderful friend,” Kraft previously told the New York Times.

Maybe Trump will have his boy Alex Acosta look into Kraft's case. He did a great job helping out Jeffrey Epstein.

Just as I suspected...they had good reason.

Before interning 120,000 Japanese-American citizens and alien residents in World War II, President Roosevelt and some of his top advisers may have seen decoded Japanese diplomatic cables boasting that ethnic Japanese had been ''utilized'' for espionage, according to a former intelligence official.

David Lowman, a retired special assistant to the director of the National Security Agency, said the diplomatic cables intercepted and decoded by American cryptanalysts in 1941 might not have justified the relocation and internment for more than two years in grim internment camps of Japanese-American citizens and resident Japanese aliens living on the West Coast.

''I doubt that it does justify it,'' Mr. Lowman said. But he said he believed the evidence cast doubt on the fairness and judgment of the recently established Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians.
...
''Anyone reading this flow of messages during 1941 could easily conclude that thousands of resident Japanese were being organized into subversive organizations,'' Mr. Lowman said. ''Today we know that the Japanese Government misjudged the loyalty of Japanese Americans completely. But at that time no one knew for certain.''

The thing you keep struggling with in your racist, bellicose, anti-American bullshit is "innocent until proven guilty." These United States citizens were treated as if they had been tried and convicted, with no right of appeal.

You uttered the bullshit line that they should not have had their property taken from them, but if they ran a business how could it not have been taken from them?! There was no way to allow them to keep running it. No way to put a substitute manager/owner in place. And leaving their homes vacant wasn't good, either (as was discovered).

So, add painfully naive or delusional onto the litany of descriptions you merit.
