Thanks. Somehow that bigotry against those of European descent escaped me. I know as someone of 100% white European ancestry (according to Ancestry.com), the bigotry I've suffered has greatly affected me. Recently, I've had to have "the talk" with my daughter (also 100% white) in case she gets stopped by the police. When will this bigotry end?!

Not to mention the fact that I, myself, at least according to ancestry, am mostly British.

Fergus Falls just sucks. The only decent thing to do is go to the lakes. Which you can do about 3 months out of the year before it's too cold again.

Its right-wing reverse pretzelism - you declare the opposite of what is actually true and then double down on it when challenged.

It is fairly obvious to any observer not wearing red blinkers that the once moderate conservative GOP has moved a long, long way right of where it used to sit.

PBS - All of the Mueller report’s major findings in less than 30 minutes

Quite neutral youtube video summation, just in case people have use for it.

Trump Tweets

Wow! The State Department said it has identified 30 Security Incidents involving current or former employees and their handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s Emails. @FoxNews This is really big. Never admitted before. Highly Classified Material. Will the Dems investigate this?

Only a few people showed up for the so-called Impeachment rallies over the weekend. The numbers were anemic, no spirit, no hope. More importantly, No Collusion, No Obstruction!

Thousands of people are already lined up in Orlando, some two days before tomorrow nights big Rally. Large Screens and food trucks will be there for those that can’t get into the 25,000 capacity arena. It will be a very exciting evening! Make America Great Again!
