    Massa Sheldon in deep doo-doo. Not only did he promise to leave this club in 2006 as a campaign promise, but he double downed on his member/ownership. Idiot.

    This sounds interesting. I wonder who the hero is going to be. I’ll guess Devin. 🙂

    This is unbelievable!

    Those flowers are spectacular gorgeous, Denise.

    Oh no! What about the ocean life?

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA oddly almost every headline I read is trumpeting Le Pen’s disappointing finish. Bitches, her party got almost twice as many votes as Macron’s party but yeah, let’s claim that SHE’S the loser here.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      A little more context. The center-right (which people really are more comfortable with than LePen’s party) made significant gains. Basically, “les republicains” have recovered from the scandal of the 2017 presidential elections, where their guy, Fillon, got busted for decades of corruption (stuff like a make-work job for his wife) that was no better and no worse than what pretty much every French politician indulges in.

      I think I was the only person in France who watched that shitshow go down and thought, “Hmmm, that looks very much like an Obama-style hit job.” And then I thought that again when LePen was prosecuted and forced to undergo a mental exam. And I thought it yet again when they went after Sarkozy. The Dauphin is apparently the only clean bean in the country. Lucky us!

      Maybe they are following the U.S. lead, And Cheating? 😡

    • foxyladi14 says:

      She is like Haley,Jendal and Obama not natural born. 😡

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution states three requirements for the president and commander-in-chief: that he have resided for 14 years within the country, be a minimum of 35 years of age, and a “natural born Citizen.”
        While the Framers did not define the term, some scholars believe that a “natural born Citizen” is one with undivided allegiance, necessitating a birth in the United States to parents who were U.S. citizens at the time of birth.

      I’m hoping it will be a blessing. Few sports spotlight the fundamental difference between men and women as vividly as weightlifting. I only know of proggies that support this travesty. No honest person. Da pup is at practice right now. It doesn’t stop for summer. To excel in sports is a yuuuuge commitment. Girls sports often don’t get a lot of fan fare. yet they work just as hard. I believe my proggies support this tosh because their kids don’t commit to anything except maybe meds. Were it by chance effecting them personally they’d be enraged. I hope he/she taked the gold to highlight and thrn the actual victors get their justice.

    the is some hope for the youth of this country

      That’s great. Homeschooling works well for many families. Especially when they have formal groups in the area to help them. I feel like the Khan Academy with their free online advanced classes have helped also. A lot of parents didn’t want to take on advanced math and science but now they don’t have too.

    I’m still checking out the AZ audit. They used to have about 45 counting tables going but now they just have 2 or 3. They say they finished recounting all the ballots a week or so ago and it looks like they might be doing random quality control counts which would be expected as they will have to give some sort of error rate. They have too many paper evaluation/scanning sites to count and those are working from 8am to 1am, three shifts a day Monday through Saturday. They have the lease on the facility until June 30. They don’t have many pallets of boxes left to scan, maybe 4, it’s hard to tell because they are scattered around. They are also busy reassembling pallets for final storage. Supposedly the scanning will be finished by Saturday but it looks more like Wednesday to me. They say the final report will not be ready until August. I find that hard to believe as I’m sure conventional stats will be done on computers which probably takes less than a day so I feel like they are withholding it until August for some other reason. Maybe because Congress will be on vacation, I suspect they will oust Senator Mark Kelly and re-up with Martha McSally and that might be easier if the Senate isn’t in session. Their electoral votes probably won’t make much difference with Biden but I expect them to change their electoral votes to Trump.

    • Locked-N-Loaded says:

      I too am still following the AZ audit. I have been especially watching the movement and organization of the boxes. I think there are about 80 scanning stations (give or take a few), but only about half are in use right now. I think they are going to run the numbers from all the data collected at least 100 times, just to be absolutely positive about the final numbers. That will probably take at least a week and then another week to produce numerous reports, but I think you are correct that delaying the releasing of reports until August is for some other reason.

      • Constance says:

        I’m glad I’m not the only one who is fascinated with the audit goings on Locked N Loaded! I used to work in medical research and after awhile with each study they knew what they had but they still had to finish collecting the data. The report is probably mostly written already and the stats are probably updated at least every few days as data comes in. I guess they are still working on getting the routers they subpoenaed and maybe working on identifying ineligible voters.

        • Locked-N-Loaded says:

          Constance, your first updates on this is what got me hooked on this audit process. I am a math and computer programming geek, so this audit process is a logistical masterpiece for me.

    • lateblum says:

      Thank you Constance. and you, too L-N-L.

    I hear that the VA is going to start doing gender reassignment surgeries. I am thinking about becoming a trans-woman. My reasons:

    1. Women live longer than men.
    2. Public restrooms for women are cleaner.
    3. I could sit down when I pee without feeling ashamed.
    4. It would make masturbation more interesting.

    Miss this guy……

  13. Mothy67 says:

    I bet we will soon see some very serious tail wagging the dog. The truth about the election festering, 1/6 theater, and cities falling into crime ridden infestations. They will sacrifice what ever needs to be to retain power.

    • lyn5 says:

      The Corrupt Propaganda Media will make something up–especially now that Trump is holding rallies again.

  14. Mothy67 says:

    How long until racism is brought up regarding Carl Nassib’s coming out on instagram? I don’t even remember the guys name who never actually played in the nfl.

    • SHV says:

      ” I don’t even remember the guys name who never actually played in the nfl.”
      Michael Sam….He was never NFL material but the constant drumbeat by ESPN…”NFL homophobia” got him drafted (7th round?)…never played an NFL down.

  15. Angie says:

    Holy fucking shit — we’ve reached “Yes Trump is right, the election was stolen” stage faster than anticipated 🤡🌍

  16. helenk3 says:

    can business owners who have been looted and burned out and then make victims again by DAs who refuse to prosecute the thugs who did it sue the DAs for failure to do their jobs?
    if not, why not?

    have we ever had a worse president than bid-on an embarrassment in front of the world
