Re: Your Daily WTF

You score front row seats for the Russian war games. What could possibly go wrong?

The video might require approval.

Re: Let's Keep Talking About Confederate Statues

Canada has unveiled its first monument to the US Civil War, honouring the 40,000 Canadians who fought during America's bloodiest conflict. The monument in Cornwall, Ontario, was championed by a Civil War re-enactment group who raised almost almost C$44,000 ($36,000, £27,000) to build it. About 7,00...

Ah. It's for the Shapiro fans. I see. Poor guys. It must be tough getting picked on by those mean Antifa bullies.

Re: Robert Lee

Was that fact checked at all?

I heard the UC system is offering mental health screening for incoming freshmen but that's because of high suicide rates in that age group. Sounds to me like the writer is a little confused.

No change in the rankings tonight since everyone picked Mater Dei. I think it's the first time we've been unanimous.

Re: What Happens to Daca Dreamers?

Just an observation from seeing Ann Coulter turning on her knight in gold plated armor and watching these dumb-asses burning their MAGA headgear - There aren't that many DACA recipients and they're mostly concentrated in the border states. So the odds of the guy filling his parents' basement up with...

Re: Let's Keep Talking About Confederate Statues

Senator Tim Scott wrote:“I shared my thoughts of the last three centuries of challenges from white supremacists, white nationalists, KKK, neo-Nazis ....”

Oh right. Another good reason for not crashing it into one of the moons - it was nuclear powered. Much better to vaporize it.

Unless the Dems can't come up with anyone better than Abbie Hoffman's ghost I don't think they have anything to worry about. Should Republicans be concerned about truthers?
