  2. This conviction and punishment sets a dangerous precedent IMO. Trybus' lawyer, again IMO, wasn't worth parking meter change, if this conviction was based on the portion of the purported 36 minute video that appears to depict the crux of the case. After viewing the video several times, I never heard any mention or inference of race in his drunken rant about the t-shirt Irizarry was wearing. He did ask if she was an American Citizen to which she answered in the affirmative. Trybus is clearly a mean and verbally aggressive drunk, not unlike some I encountered in bars in my younger years. I hope Trybus appeals the case to a higher court. The only racial bias that I could detect was exhibited in the court ruling. I suspect that is why the Judge handed down the sentence without comment. For a crime not as serious as attacks on white MAGA hat Trump supporters, this idiot now has 2 felony counts on this record.
  3. Chicago Daily Herald: Man gets probation for racist rant about woman's Puerto Rico flag T-shirt Cook County Judge Aleksandra Nikolic Gillespie, without comment, handed the Des Plaines man two years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Trybus was also ordered to pay a $150 fine and undergo drug and alcohol evaluation, a state's attorney spokeswoman said. Prosecutors had also sought probation, saying Trybus' target in the June 14, 2018, rant had moved on with her life and wasn't seeking prison time for Trybus, who has no other felony history. https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191021/man-gets-probation-for-racist-rant-about-womans-puerto-rico-flag-t-shirt
  4. After conducting the "impeachment" process, behind closed doors, Speaker Pelosi, in opposition to past precedence to allow vote on the House floor has said there will be no floor vote on the impeachment charges. Probably because this would allow the president's lawyers and those who oppose the impeachment tactic to allow party members to view statements, question those giving statements and the opportunity to call witnesses to counter testimonial statements, my prediction that this is going to be used by the Democrats as a campaign tool in an attempt to turn public opinion away from president Trump's chances at election in 2020 by just "leaking" dribs and drabs of unsubstantiated and not supported allegations appears to be spot on. An Op-Ed from Congressional Representative Fred Keller (R-PA): "It started with the “Russia Collusion” hoax, which failed, and has turned into an “impeachment inquiry” being conducted behind closed doors with a predetermined outcome meant to deny the will of the American people 13 months before an election. Aside from the alarming impact the current “impeachment inquiry” presents to our form of government is the immediate and practical effect of what it has done to governing. While Speaker Pelosi said that the 116th Congress would be one that unifies, rather than divides our nation, her leadership—or lack thereof—has put real legislating at a standstill. Like many Americans, I am appalled that Congress is consumed with impeachment instead of legislating. Congress has the opportunity to pass real, meaningful legislation this fall. The USMCA would boost our economy and help our farmers and manufacturing sectors. A bipartisan infrastructure bill could literally pave the way to better roads and bridges to ensure safe travel of persons and goods. And immigration reform could finally end the security and humanitarian crisis on our border. Unfortunately for them, Democrats want impeachment over improvement and have traded unity for uselessness." https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/pelosi-impeachment-inquiry-rep-fred-keller If there is evidence warranting impeachment the Democrats should trot it out and let the American public see it... If there isn't sufficient evidence warranting impeachments the Democrats should get back to the jobs they were elected to do, legislate on measures they've put on hold in pursuit of their impeachment objectives. If this carries over into the 2020 election cycle with no charges, no proof, no evidence against the president I at least hope the American voters will recognize their 4th official attempt to impeach president Trump as the sham it appears to be.

    Too bad we don't have one on this forum. Quote: "the hard working dems between the two coasts have to say" We got stuck with a
  6. Well of course we all know you post un-informed opinions and ridiculous accusations. Truth be told, they keep the hard working, important, useful employee(s), that are a benefit to the company needs, and let the others go first. But I assume you wouldn't have any experience in that department.
  7. Yep, Hillary Clinton is at it again this time accusing Jill Stein the 2016 Green Party candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful of being "Russian assets"... CNN: Hillary Clinton suggests Russians are 'grooming' Tulsi Gabbard for third-party run https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/18/politics/hillary-clinton-tulsi-gabbard/index.html Neither Gabbard nor Stein took it well it seems...

    Great News

    Dateline Wednesday November 4th 2020 - Trump re-elected by landslide -Democrat Party has completely imploded. ************************************************************************* Last week Moody's came on the news and said they have successfully predicted the Presidential Elections correctly since 1980 except for one time. They have 3 different ways they do this and Trump was successful in all 3 ways they use to determine who will win the election. They said is was a blow out in all 3 and nothing close. They put him up against all the democrats presidential candidates. I have many democrat friends and they are even admitting these dems running now are just a bunch of clowns.... and that Trump will have no problems winning. Why would you......be in favor of abortions up to 9 months, the new green deal which is absolutely ridiculous, open borders, medicare for all, free health care for illegal aliens, free this, free that. Hey Bernie sanders already said he will take 70% of what you make, Pocahontus wont say how much she will take but has to be close to Bernie... Lying Joe doesn't know what he wants to do, says one thing and turns around and says the opposite. Yang wants to give all a 1,000 dollars a month ....(pyro will vote for him, that's right down pyro's alley) So that leaves Beto and harris and mayor pete and Spartacus...all who never had a chance in the first place. Booker was the biggest Bozo of em all. Like my dem friends here say, all we hear about are the radicals left on the east coast and the west coast. We seldom here anyone in the fly over states get to speak. The media doesn't want to let the rest of the world know how the hard working dems between the two coasts have to say. So my friends are voting Trump. I can see why its a landslide for Trump. And come November 4th the democrat party will have completely imploded. (taps need played here)
  9. Not surprised youve always been slow at getting things done and shes doing great shes been shocked that maintenance doesnt take three weeks to fix something
  10. OK This is stupid and CNN's worse for passing along this race-baiting story... Gina Rodriguez rapped along to a song from the Fugees called "ready or not", she spoke the lyrics exactly as the song was written and get's grief from people on social media and a few of the usual suspect "news" networks, for singing the lyrics to a song - exactly as written... WTH?!? Double standards much?!!? CNN: Actress Gina Rodriguez comes under fire over her use of the n-word Actress Gina Rodriguez is facing yet another racial scandal -- this time over a social media post in which she used the n-word. A video posted on her Instagram on Tuesday shows Rodriguez getting her hair done as The Fugees song "Ready or Not" plays in the background. The "Jane the Virgin" star raps "I can do what you do ... believe me. (N-word) give me heebie-jeebies," before chuckling out loud. She later deleted the video but not before people saved it and shared it widely on social media. After a flurry of criticism, she posted another video... {apologizing} https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/16/entertainment/gina-rodriguez-rap-n-word And here's the "offensive" stanzas, CNN and folks on social media are so upset about... ..."I can do what you do, easy, believe me Fronting niggas give me hee-bee-gee-bees So while you're imitating Al Capone, I'll be Nina Simone And defecating on your microphone" "Here's a break down of some of the comments from a Youtube video discussing Gina's "offensive" use of the 'N-word' "... "Gina is from Puerto Rico and Cardi B is from Dominican Republic but yet when Cardi says the n-word in one of her songs where's the outrage?" "JLo said "the N-word" in her song “I’m Real”, where was the outage then?" "Quentin Tarantino manages to write the N word into many of his movie scripts - how many Oscars does he have ?" "Where was all this outrage over the N word when a (Puerto Rican) tekashi69 used this word at least 10 times in the first 9 seconds in the song 'gummo'..." I personally consider all forms of the "N-word" offensive, regardless of almost every context or who uses it or their race. It is not OK for some to use the N-word, then claim offense when someone else uses it. There is no special dispensation allowing a few to use the N-word and it not be considered offensive, then if someone else uses it, to consider it offensive - especially in this context. If anyone wants to find something to be offended by, they will find a reason to be offended, even if it is something stupid like this.
  11. NBC News: 38 people cited for violations in Clinton email probe The State Department has completed its internal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's use of private email and found violations by 38 people, some of whom may face disciplinary action. The department determined that those 38 people were "culpable" in 91 cases of sending classified information in messages that ended up in Clinton's personal email. The 38 are current and former State Department officials but were not identified in the report that was sent to Congress this week. The investigation covered 33,000 emails that Clinton turned over for review after her use of the private email account became public. The department said it found a total of 588 violations involving information then or now deemed to be classified... https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/38-people-cited-violations-clinton-email-probe
  12. NPR: Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings Dies At 68 https://www.npr.org/2019/10/17/770851734/maryland-democratic-rep-elijah-cummings-dies-at-68 I didn't have to agree with you or your every word to respect you and try to honor you for your service to this country and it's people. Rest well, you earned it.
  13. Yeah, I'll probably catch hell for posting this... but what makes that different from any other day (I jest) NBC News: Want to save lives in mass shootings? Ban large-capacity magazines, researchers say From 1990 to 2017, most 'high-fatality mass shootings' were done by shooters equipped with high-capacity magazines. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/want-save-lives-mass-shootings-ban-large-capacity-magazines Considering it's NBC, at least try to ignore all of the left spinning and anti-gun lobby commentary... I've commented several times I have no problem banning LCM's, passing a law that says a firearm can only shoot 10 times without reloading -vs- 30 to 100 times without loading does not "infringe" on anyone's Constitutional right to "Keep and bear arms" and there is no Constitutional clause about limiting how many rounds a person's firearm holds. The opposing view is, banning LCM's will do little to nothing to keep a potential mass shooter from picking up and using a firearm which is correct but still, aside from the "fun" aspect is there really any practical reason someone needs to have a magazine or clip that holds more than 10 shells?
  14. Oh I do, but I always like to offer someone the opportunity to back up their words - if they can... That they don't, simply confirms for me they can't so I (we) can dismiss their comments for the unsupportable and probably false claims they are with a clear conscience. **BTW did anyone else look up this Nate Lerner, the person who posted the comment DF parroted? "co-founder Draft Beto, Obama 2012, #BoycottTrump app creator, Nate@buildthewave.org" Not at all surprising all things considered.
  15. I noticed that I started a thread (supported by links) and then get accused of bumping numbers to support a racist view. You can't make this stuff up.
  16. I'm not really sure why you reference me with your insult about reading? I haven't really mentioned anything about that subject on this thread. On other sites I have mentioned serving with them. Unless quoting RC's questions that you ignore but claim to prove people wrong......
  17. Great response to RC. He ask " And link me to a legal "immigrant" veteran that was deported by the President because of immigration status. " and you answer by stating "Note Legal residents The military doesnt allow illegals to serve" and you haven't shown a legal immigrant veteran that was deported because of immigration status, but have supplied a ling stating " they don’t always qualify for or complete that process. After separation, they could spend years still in the U.S., until something like a criminal conviction brings them to ICE’s attention."
  18. I see you still see the humor in you assuming things. The US and Russia have exchanged bases for years. As for you surrendered a base, you are far off base. Abandoning a base isn't surrendering it. I personally spent time at an ex-Russian base that we have used for years. BTW, many military have went on record supporting the pull out of Syria, but I'm sure you ignore those statements. Well, gotta go.........time to head off to work.........some of us have real jobs.
  19. Nope. I still have it and still have a company computer. I do find it funny how you tend to assume things. I am still an employee there. Now as long as you insist on trying personal jabs,............my turn.........how's your meal ticket doing?
  20. Maybe you should read your own link. Quote: " they don’t always qualify for or complete that process. After separation, they could spend years still in the U.S., until something like a criminal conviction brings them to ICE’s attention."
  21. Thanks, Ace. I remember after the first time she met you in person, she went on an on about how nice you were and she just absolutely liked you. The best one of all is CreekRat way back in the day. She absolutely could not stand him, she HATED him based on how he was on TalkBack and then on here... I had worked with him in the past, and knew he was a good guy, but she didn't believe me. Then I remember years ago her and I were at Downstream and we ran into CreekRat... I introduced my mom to him and we chatted for a bit and as we left my mom went on and on about how nice he was and I was just like "told ya so". We ran into him off and on throughout the years at area casino's and my mom always enjoyed talking to him... she never had a bad thing to say about him since.
  22. Earlier
  23. No after trump said who cares many of the troops have gone on the record saying abandoning the kurds was a betrayal exports and military leader in the US forces told rump it would destabalize the region and result in the release and resurgence of ISIS. No matter How you try to spin it pulling out was a bad deal the only ones who benefit are the russians and ISIS of course they both have support from Trump I hate Traitors that trump is one is his own fault
  24. So sorry for your loss she was a wonderful lady
  25. OK, Russia took over some bases after U.S. forces left, as I said; "who cares?"... Before our troops were there those positions likely belonged to Syria or the Kurds. Russia is now their ally. So if it's OK with the Kurds and Syria for the Russians to occupy abandoned military - what of it? Sounds to me you're just looking for anything you can grasp to argue about - As you yourself pointed out, at least one bases occupied by American troops came under artillery fire... what are we supposed to do tough it out and intentionally stay in the middle of two - maybe three or more countries fighting each other? Aren't you the little warmonger all of a sudden... And the part of your meme about; "I hope Trump gave our military time to shred documents and destroy classified devices' is just so much Trump-hater BS and you know it, but as usual, you post it anyway.
