  1. If gas was a buck, zero inflation and national debt was paid off, I'd be glad to admit that Biden was doing a great job. Unfortunately, gas prices are still high, inflation is worst it's been in years under his term and he has been spending money like there's no tomorrow. The economy has taken a hit which has affected peoples retirement accounts and this administration doesn't seem to know what to do to fix the problem. So no, I can't say that he's done a great job.
  2. I did find a truthful statement in this article where Biden claims no other president has done as much as his administration. Unfortunately, much of what he has done has caused our country to decline and adversely affected our economy. So, not all of of the change has been good.
  3. Biden appears to declare himself the greatest president in US history Biden claims no other president has done as much as his administration. By Greg Wehner | Fox News President Biden appears to declare himself greatest president in U.S. history Remarks from President Biden's Nov. 30th White House Tribal Nations summit via the White House Youtube channel. President Biden all but declared himself as the greatest president in America’s history on Wednesday. "I tell you what," the president said. "No one’s ever done as much as president as this administration’s doing. Period." President Biden appeared to declare himself greatest president in U.S. history during the Tribal Nations Summit on Wednesday. (White House) Biden spoke during the White House Tribal Nations Summit, which was to feature new announcements and efforts to put new policies in place that support Tribal communities. The summit, which takes place at the Department of the Interior, gives tribal leaders the opportunity to engage with top U.S. officials on ways to strengthen nation-to-nation relationships and ensure indigenous communities endure for years to come. As Biden spoke during the opening day of the summit, he said he was sure to make mistakes. "Don’t hesitate to correct me when I make [them]," he said. "I know you; you won’t hesitate." Biden has consistently seen a majority of Americans disapprove of his job performance. Prices on everyday items including gas and food have seen record inflation on his watch. A recent Pentagon report found that his evacuation from Afghanistan, during which 13 Americans were killed and an unknown number of Afghans who had worked with the United States over the years were left behind, was a propaganda gift to China. The Taliban swiftly took control in the wake of that retreat. The US-Mexico border has also seen a record number of illegal crossings month after month since Biden's tenure began.
  4. I Googled the term and came up with this: "Umbrella term for individuals who are engrossed by social justice and thinks of themselves as saviors with a moral high ground, but remain willfully ignorant to the irrationality of their claims and the problems they create. These individuals give special treatment to certain minorities in hopes of ending racism and perpetuate mental illnesses as the norm." It's not my definition, but the first thing that came up.
  5. This is an interesting article. Questionable circumstances? https://www.foxnews.com/media/nbc-news-blasted-critics-over-retracted-paul-pelosi-report-questions-persist-done-damage
  6. Do you think Mr. Pelosi is grateful that they had not "defunded" the police department? It's probably time to build a good wall around the residence too!
  7. During Joe's speech on Friday evening at the Pennsylvania Democratic Party Reception, he touted his party’s success in protecting the Affordable Care Act from being dismantled during former President Donald Trump’s term. He claimed that Democrats had campaigned in 54 states to defend Obamacare. Besides the 50 we normally have, there's the state of Confusion, where Biden resides. Not sure what the others are. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/x9LzljUtw0w
  8. From Fox News: The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Paul, was assaulted with a hammer early Friday inside his San Francisco home by an attacker identified by police as David Depape, who a law enforcement source tells Fox News was shouting "Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?" San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said Depape, 42, is now facing charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary and several other additional felonies stemming from the incident after 2 a.m. Scott said police responded to a wellbeing check and found Depape and Paul Pelosi, 82, struggling over a hammer. He said officers then witnessed Depape pull the hammer away from Pelosi and "violently assaulted" him. Officers then immediately tackled Depape, disarmed him and took him into custody, while requesting emergency backup and rendering medical aid at the scene. The motive for the attack remains under investigation. "Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said. "Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery." The spokesman also said, "The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time." The White House said President Biden "is praying for Paul Pelosi and for Speaker Pelosi’s whole family" following the "horrible attack." A source that spoke to Fox News said the intruder confronted the Speaker’s husband shouting "where is Nancy, where is Nancy?" . Two sources with knowledge of the investigation into the attack also told The Associated Press that Paul Pelosi was specifically targeted, severely beaten with a hammer and suffered blunt force injuries to his head and body. The sources said Pelosi is being treated for injuries including bruising and severe swelling. The U.S. Capitol Police said in its own statement that it is "assisting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the San Francisco Police with a joint investigation into a break-in at the California home of the Speaker of the House of Representatives." The statement also said Nancy Pelosi "was in Washington, D.C. with her protective detail at the time of the overnight, break-in." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said "what happened to Paul Pelosi was a dastardly act. "I spoke with Speaker Pelosi earlier this morning and conveyed my deepest concern and heartfelt wishes to her husband and their family, and I wish him a speedy recovery," he said in a statement. Friday's reported attack is not the first time the Pelosi's Pacific Heights property has been targeted recently. In 2021, photos surfaced on social media and TMZ showing graffiti on a San Francisco garage door purportedly at the home of the Democratic congressional leader. The apparently spray-painted message read "$2K" with a line through it. A spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department told Fox News at the time that officers responded to the reported vandalism around 2 a.m. "Unidentified suspect(s) had painted graffiti on the garage door and left a pig's head on the sidewalk," they said.
  9. Police in Lloyd, New York, arrested a woman for letting her 10-year-old get a tattoo on his arm. The tattoo artist who inked the child was also arrested. The mom was charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a Class A misdemeanor and could face up to one year in prison or three years’ probation. The tattoo artist was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, and endangering the welfare of a child. In New York, tattooing anyone under the age of 18, even with parental consent, is against the law and is considered a Class B misdemeanor. Consider this....had the mom taken the boy to have his gender changed, it would be allowed without any repercussions.
  10. I take it you don't feel that there are other things that should be higher on the list to be fixed before such trivial items which are not all that important.?
  11. Another waste of money...removal of roads & bridges for being racial and offensive to some people: Biden administration announces first major step to fight America's racist roads Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced a large grant that'll be used to dismantle a highway built to destroy a Black community. And there's more. By Ja'han Jones The Biden administration is capping off the president’s recent trip to Michigan, focused largely on worker rights and transportation innovation, by handing out its first federal grant to dismantle a highway built to perpetuate racial discrimination. The move is part of the Biden administration’s broader effort to remake America’s infrastructure to be more equitable, including addressing racist roads that were designed to facilitate white flight and deprive Black communities of housing and commercial opportunities. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday that $104.6 million in federal funds coming from last year’s bipartisan infrastructure bill will go toward a plan to dismantle Interstate 375, a highway built to bisect Detroit’s Black Bottom neighborhood and its epicenter of Black business, Paradise Valley. The funds are being allocated to Detroit as part of a $1.5 billion grant program called Infrastructure for Rebuilding America, or INFRA, for states to move critical projects forward. “This stretch of I-375 cuts like a gash through the neighborhood, one of many examples I have seen in communities across the country where a piece of infrastructure has become a barrier,” Buttigieg told the AP about the Detroit highway. “With these funds, we’re now partnering with the state and the community to transform it into a road that will connect rather than divide,” he added. According to the AP: Detroit’s project would create a slower-speed boulevard that aims to improve safety by removing a steep curve and adding LED lighting, while removing 15 old bridges and two stormwater runoff pump stations and building out wider sidewalks, protected bike lanes and pedestrian crossings. In his role as head of the Transportation Department, Buttigieg has spoken directly of America’s racist infrastructure, and he’s placed a particular emphasis on road construction. And after Republicans threw public tantrums over his acknowledgment of racism built into American infrastructure, Buttigieg was taken aback. “I’m still surprised that some people are surprised,” he said in a news conference last November, adding, “I don’t think we have anything to lose by confronting that reality.” A Bloomberg report on neighborhoods destroyed by racist highway construction noted the impact I-375 had on once-bustling Black Bottom, noting that “few traces of the neighborhood remain aside from historical markers.” A feature on the neighborhood published in Grist noted that “the destruction of the epicenters of Detroit’s Black life started with the condemnation of housing through the National Housing Act of 1949,” which trapped Black people in cramped, low-quality housing. And Grist said the problem continued “when the city received even more funds through the National Highway Act in 1956.” Thursday’s announcement included millions of dollars more for separate projects in Arizona, Colorado, New York and states across the country. The significant amount needed to resurrect Black Bottom and its surrounding areas shows how devastating America’s racist infrastructure has been. And it’s a sign a lot more money will be needed to correct the problem nationwide.
  12. What a waste of time and taxpayer money. Surely there are more important issues that deserve attention. $62.5 million could be used to take care of other more pressing things https://www.foxnews.com/us/defense-secretary-orders-renaming-military-bases-assets-honoring-confederacy Defense Secretary Austin orders renaming of military bases with Confederate ties Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has signed off on renaming military bases and assets with Confederate ties By Sarah Rumpf | Fox News Report: Biden’s woke military struggling to recruit Lieutenant colonel discharged after criticizing military: This is a problem with our senior leaders. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday signed off on an independent commission's recommendations to remove from U.S. military facilities, "all names, symbols, displays, monuments, and paraphernalia that honor or commemorate the Confederacy." "The installations and facilities that our Department operates are more than vital national security assets. They are also powerful public symbols of our military, and of course, they are the places where our Service members and their families work and live." Austin wrote in a memo to senior officials on Friday. "The names of these installations and facilities should inspire all those who call them home, fully reflect the history and the values of the United States, and commemorate the best of the republic that we are all sworn to protect." ‘WOKE’ DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE EQUITY CHIEF WRITES ANTI-WHITE POSTS: ‘EXHAUSTED WITH THESE WHITE FOLX’ Beginning on Dec. 18, 2022, the Department of Defense will begin renaming assets across the country, including hundreds of streets, buildings and other assets. Among the changes is the renaming of nine Army posts: Forts Benning and Gordon in Georgia; Forts Lee, A.P Hill and Pickett in Virginia; Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Rucker in Alabama, Fort Polk in Louisiana and Fort Hood in Texas. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE EQUITY CHIEF GOES DARK ON SOCIAL MEDIA AFTER FOX NEWS DIGITAL REPORT ON ANTI-WHITE POSTS According to the commission’s report, Fort Benning will be named Fort Moore; Fort Polk will be renamed Fort Johnson; Fort Bragg will become Fort Liberty; Fort Gordon will become Fort Eisenhower; Fort Hood will become Fort Cavazos; Fort Lee will become Fort Gregg-Adams; Fort Pickett will become Fort Barfoot; Fort Rucker will be renamed to Fort Novosel. Navy ships USS Chancellorsville and USNS Maury will also be renamed. Carlos Del Toro, the secretary of the Navy, will decide on the new names. The federally mandated Naming Committee estimated the undertaking to cost as much as $62.5 million, according to Stars and Stripes.
  13. I agree. After reading post after post of pretty much hateful, personal attacks, I've been concentrating on better ways to spend my time. I'd hate to see SEK Community go by the wayside but really don't enjoy reading those posts every time I check in. It would be nice to see the group pick up some folks and grow but it just doesn't seem to be happening.
  14. At work & we heard about a plane crashing into the first tower. Went to the conference room, where they had a television, & we were watching coverage of it when the second plane hit.
  15. Prayers for his family. I sometimes wonder where all the folks are that used to be here & what has happened to them.
  16. Can you honestly say that you personally are better off now? I know we've "tightened our belts" considerably with the high inflation since your president took office.
  17. I think most logical people would agree they are not better off now than they were during Trump's time in office.
