Looks like I got a sinus infection, so nothing cool to report. Other than pain in my sinus's.

It's easy to forget that there are other things going around too, not just covid.

So is webmd the disease?

Apparently they aren't being tested at the border for COVID or anything else found in the Americas like tuberculosis. Of those in temporary custody, 30% are said to be refusing a vaccine.

Then they're transported in secret to undisclosed destinations on military aircraft and charter buses with no advance notice to anyone at their targeted destinations, often military bases in red states like Texas, Tennessee and Florida, and so-called sanctuary jurisdictions.

With school starting soon, that's a problem since the illegal kids will be entitled to attend public schools in person. No wonder there's wait lists at private and parochial schools where virtually all DC politicians send their kids.
If you're going to call other people "illegals", can I call you "a racist pile of shit"? Just wondering about forum rules.

During the Russia hoax that dragged on for years...

- The NY Times published almost 18,000 articles promoting the hoax. They were disinformation. They hid or dismissed the evidence and have yet to issue a retraction.

- The Washington Post published almost 24,000 similar articles. They won awards for their "coverage". More disinformation.

- CNN has 11,473 Russia hoax stories presented as fact. They won awards. All propaganda.

This is just one example that happens to have political overtones, but there are thousands of others including many surrounding COVID that come from supposedly legitimate sources on both sides that turn out to be bogus. So much depends on the agenda of the source where propaganda is often labeled news or weather.

Time is on the side of truth, though. We're in a place in history where some facts are called conspiracies that are later proven true, and some stories presented as factual later turn out to have been manipulated or created to mold public opinion, including polls.

I like this proverb:

"Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see."

Succeeds expectations. We still have remnants of the 1st Amendment and have libel and slander laws supporting it so use your own judgement, such as it is.

You certainly could (assuming it's within the forum rules); being able to state your views and your opinions freely (unless you are a conservative on Twitter, FaceBook, or YouTube) is one of the many great freedoms we have in this country due to the selfless sacrifice of others.

Of course, in doing so you would be showing your ignorance. We have "illegal immigration," and therefore we have "illegal immigrants," or "illegals" for short. There is nothing offensive about that... just a statement of fact. We have crime; those that commit crimes are criminals. We have gymnastics...those who "commit" gymnastics are gymnastic athletes, or "gymnasts" for short.

Since an "illegal" refers to anyone entering our country illegally, there is no racial component to the term. Any race, ethnicity, creed, whatever, can be an "illegal" if entering or residing in the country without permission. The oft-quoted/sloganed "No human being is illegal" is incredibly vacuous; no one has ever said that an entire human being is illegal. We call humans who break the law "criminals"... should we also chant, "No human is a crime?" Such stupid.

So... "illegal" is not a racist term. It can not be, as it does not refer to any race.

Next... if you've read Atmo's posts, especially the one regarding his actions in helping others as a teacher, you'd know that he is far from being a racist.

Next ... the .. umm... "Random vertical arrangement of feces" comment. Completely, totally uncalled for. What is your goal? If it's to bring others around to your point(s) of view, being incredibly insulting is rarely the way to do so.

Yes, you should apologize, and yes, such completely baseless personal attacks should definitely violate forum rules.

Have you read the Mueller Report? Until you can honestly say yes you're just spinning webs of bullshit.
