  1. Over-rated Meryl Streep - best actress of all time being subjective -  and other actors who can't get over it, should be smart enough to emulate Nicole Kidman.   And Steve Harvey, who met with Trump.

      Yeah....but she should've had the decency to know what is appropriate and what is not.  There is a proper time for everything. 

      What a shame to have her lifetime acheivement award be overshadowed by something like that.  And look what's resonating more: it's not her blasted award, but apparently there is a divisiveness even with the response towards her on social media.  She blew a lifetime of achievement in matter of minutes.  She'll most likely be remembered for this than anything else.

      Only a shame to you and yours, Betsy.  In my opinion, more people should stand up and say "Trump, you're a dick".

      That's your opinion.   Just choose the proper occasion when you do it - otherwise, we all know who'll look like a real dick. :lol:

  2. Mainstream media didn't report about Wilkinson's harassment of Sarah Sanders - following her to another establishment, organizing a group to scream at her.   The owner (?) of that other restaurant confirmed it.

      Are you really accusing the MSM of not doing their part in stoking division and getting people angry at other private citizens?

      I suppose you can view it that way, if you're a gold medalist in mental gymnastics. Non gold medalist's would see it as selective reporting in order to further a narrative tied to a particular agenda. You just keep vaulting away though.

  3. Sara Sanders tweeted:
     

    "Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so."

      @scribblet - Apparently Antifa just published the names of over 1000 ICE employees.  I don't think it's so people can send them Christmas cards.  People getting hurt seems to be a goal now.

      That has to be illegal surely.

      It seems to be the Democrat’s new platform for the next election:    harass, attack and threaten anyone they don't agree with.  It seems they have declared open season on Republicans.

      Next time they try selling you their tolerance and inclusion narrative remember these things because they don’t mean it.  They’re only for tolerance/inclusion if you are 100% in agreement with them.

    4. BubberMiley

      If Antifa and the Democrats are the same thing, how about saying Stormfront and the Republicans are the same thing? Or would saying that be shamelessly lying to make a weak point seem more believable?

    Do you want a SOCIALIST government?

     

    Do you want to end up with the worst of all -  Socialist/Liberal coalition?

     

    Think about that.   Don't vote with your emotions.   Vote sensibly.   Don't base your decision around your hatred for the guy next door. 

       This is about your own house - not the neighbour's.

      This article explains why the rumor circulating now (because of the alleged suicide note of Fidelito), cannot be true.

    Now I know why our Cabinet Ministers had to go to Washington to "lay the gorund works" for this upcoming meeting.

     

    "The official versions of the calls have noted the usual niceties exchanged between world leaders and mutual invitations for visits.

    But in a long interview Trudeau gave in December to a Montreal radio station, he hinted that the atmosphere on the Trump call may not have been as warm as expected. "

    So, Trudeau wants to exempt SNC-Lavalin from prosecution....because SNC-Lavalin employs 9,000 folks.

    That means, anyone can get away with doing illegal stuff as long as you create employment!  Especially so, if you're in Quebec!
