Ok, I know I've asked this question before, but it still intrigues me

Interstates have no red lights or stop signs, yet every day we see traffic on them come to a complete stop.

Why?

Thanksgiving

That is the day you get to find out what kind of electrician wired your house.

I don't get it

Why do these yahoos post stuff, obviously with alertable content, and then immediately delete it?

What's the point?

Ilovetx just responded to one of my posts, calling me a cunt, then deleted it.

Why post something you have no intention of anybody reading?

Beats me.

Trump has been in California inspecting the situation there

I'm surprised they let him in.

Why didn't Hillary go? Isn't she the legitimate president?

U.N. Report Faults Trump For Obama Poverty, Media Fall For It

United Nations: Amid all the immigration hoo-ha, maybe you missed the uncritical mainstream media reports of a United Nations study faulting President Trump for poverty in America. Turns out, it's just more fake news.

An uncritical Reuters headline says it all: "America's poor becoming more destitute under Trump: U.N. expert". The Hill's equally blase headline: "UN poverty official: Trump exacerbating inequality."

The report — really a first-person narrative — released earlier this month, ripped President Trump for his "contempt" and "hatred of the poor."

The report cited 18.5 million Americans who live in extreme poverty, and massive U.S. defense spending at the expense of social programs.

Only one problem: As Chuck DeVore, vice president of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, points out, the data on which the study was based came from 2016.

That's right, President Obama's last year. So does that make it "fake news"?
Worse, the U.N. report uses misleading and "wildly inaccurate" Census data to bolster its claims of 18.5 million living in the U.S. under extreme poverty. The real level, as a separate study reveals, is "less than half that."
The report is a distortion, little else. The fact is, unemployment at 3.8% is a 29-year low. Food stamp recipients in 2017 numbered 42.1 million, 2 million below Obama's last year and the lowest since 2010.

To say that the U.N. report is false and anti-U.S., both in its content and its intent, would be an understatement.
Thankfully, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is having none of it. Responding to a letter from socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders suggesting the poverty report showed the failure of Trump's policies, Haley hit back hard.
"It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America," Haley wrote to Sanders. "The Special Rapporteur wasted the UN's time and resources, deflecting attention from the world's worst human rights abusers and focusing instead on the wealthiest and freest country in the world."

U.N. Day Of Reckoning?
The truth is, U.S. gives about $10 billion a year to the U.N., which often uses the money for explicitly anti-U.S. activities — such as funding the tendentious poverty study mentioned above, aiding terrorists in the Mideast, spending millions on useless "development" projects, and wasting hundreds of millions on do-nothing bureaucrats' salaries.

Knowing this, it's no surprise that Haley this week pulled the U.S. out of the utterly corrupt U.N. "Human Rights" Council. Its members include some of the greatest violators of human rights in the world.

Or that President Trump wants to cut U.S. contributions to the U.N. The U.N.'s day of reckoning has been a long time coming. Past administrations just kicked the can down the road. This one won't.

With all the hoopla from Lefty about Trump attending functions

It reminds me of one spectacular moment in history when our president made us proud


I need you now

I LOVE all the liberals here whining about Trump's planned visit to a military cemetery

As if you people give a frog's fat butt about the military. You people HATE the military as much as you hate Trump.

We seem to have a lot of aviation weather experts in the forum

But none of them seem to be able to link us up to the weather in France and Trump's intended flight to the cemetery.

Adam Schiff for brains says the California fires have nothing to do with environmental regulations

We don't expect you to admit it Mr. Schiff for brains
