Wow: House Dems Fire Staffers For Being White…

Wow: House Dems Fire Staffers For Being White…


Via: The People's Fish  •  107 comments  •  6 months ago
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House Democrats’ powerful campaign arm, has just abruptly purged half a dozen staffers. Why? Because they are white. It appears that no one had anything against these particular staffers … except for the color of their skin. Although roughly half the committee’s full-time staff (13 of 27) were nonwhite, this was not enough for some...

Jul 31 4:53pm @5.2.7 So let me understand this. They replaced one Jewish girl for another and this is the big shake up? Maybe it's about hair color. One is a red head and the other has brown hair.

Why should we be concerned about U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr's   proposal last week to resume federal executions   for some particularly horrendous crimes? Because there's no reason to believe that the flaws that originally cast doubt on capital punishment have become less of an issue. In his announcement of resumed executions, Barr focuses on "bringing justice to victims of the most...

This is the real thing.  I got this recipe from my father, who got it from his mother.  She was a cook in a Michigan lumber camp in the 1890's.  In fact, that's how she met my grandfather.  He was one of the men she was cooking for.

Can Science Explain the Origin of Life? Revolutionary Video Debunks Materialist Theories

Can Science Explain the Origin of Life? Revolutionary Video Debunks Materialist Theories


Via: Donald J. Trump fan 1  •  176 comments  •  7 months ago
In a video published Monday, the Discovery Institute set out to disprove materialist theories to explain the origin of life in purely materialistic, orderless terms. Materialism claims that matter is all there is, and many scientists believe this, but it is an assumption they bring to science, rather than a finding of science. The video is the fifth in a series entitled "Science Uprising"...
Jul 07 12:14pm @3.1.64 "..." I have some news for you. Half of that bible (the OT) was never meant to be read literally. Jews know this. That is why there is an additional book called the Talmud. It is legal...
Jul 06 5:00pm @3.1.54 "..." That is just nuts. There are loads of religious people who still believe in evolution and science. They just don't believe in your version and that is what upsets you.
Jul 06 4:57pm @3.1.53 Then they are mixing politics and religion. A very dangerous combo.

Do American Indians celebrate the 4th of July?


Via: 1stwarrior  •  31 comments  •  7 months ago
How do Native Americans observe the 4th of July? The answer is as complicated as America’s history. Perhaps the best-known passage of the the Declaration of Independence is the statement that all men are created equal. But many Native Americans also remember the signers’ grievance against the King of England: He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to...

Sen. Kamala Harris' polling surge continued Tuesday, as a new poll of Iowa caucus-goers shows her in second place in the crucial early state. Harris only trails former Vice President Joe Biden, whom she confronted in the pivotal moment of last week's first Democratic primary debate, according to the   USA Today/Suffolk University poll in Iowa . Biden has 24 percent to Harris’ 16...

The Donald met with the vicious dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, again today.  And, of course, Trump managed to once again dis the South Korean President who was left out of his meeting.  I was really impressed when Trump stepped over the border and briefly defected to North Korea.  Trump's ass looked biggly huge .  I was disappointed when Trump turned around and left North Korea....

If her latest attack against Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill is any indication, nothing at the Poverty Palace has changed—including, the...

By   Jason Abbruzzese The first time Savannah Spirit remembers Facebook censoring her work takes her back to 2011.

In the coming years, Spirit, like many other artists, would move to...
