  1. Trump pardoning a guy indicted by the Trump Justice Department for defrauding Trump supporters over the fake Trump wall is a fitting ending to the Trump presidency.
  2. @Woody Almost everything at the top about the economy is bullshit. Job creation was much slower than it was under Obama and I'm talking about before covid. and it's stupid to say that more African Americans came off unemployment than under any other president when unemployment was at its lowest for everybody not just African Americans. Although that unemployment was not much lower than it was when he took office when it was just over 4%. Most of those accomplishments are no more an accomplishment than him wiping his own ass.
  3. He'll be back soon? Yeah, to face charges. Dude when are you going to get it through your head? Trump's entire presidency was a disgrace. It was an embarrassment. Trump is an embarrassment and electing him was the most disgraceful thing this country has ever done. He ain't coming back LMAO. I saw a copy of a chat room chat from a Qanon website where even they are giving up on Trump.
  4. In his farewell speach today, Trump touted his so called "accomplishments" during his four years in the White House. Let's unpack that. (1) "I will build a big, beautiful wall and make Mexico pay for it". Facts: Only 80 miles of new wall were built. About 400 miles of replacement wall were built in the new easily climbable form that he eventually selected. Mexico did not pay one red centavo. (2) "I built a great economy until the 'China Virus' wrecked it." Facts: Obama/Biden inherited an economy in free fall from 8 years of George W. Bush and spent 8 years rebuilding it. It was going great guns as of 2016 and experienced naturally expected levels of growth after Trump moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Nothing that Trump, who spent most of his time as President watching Fox News and tweeting, did, contributed anything to improvement of that growth other than the rich friendly tax reforms which resulted in only a temporary bump. Further, his lack of any attempt to foster a unified federal response to the pandemic and politicization of mask wearing and distancing probably made an economic recovery more difficult to obtain. (3) " I appointed over 200 new conservative federal judges and 3 Supreme Court Justices". Facts: This is true. However, whether you consider that to be a good thing or not depends on your point of view. Good luck if you, as a powerless citizen, have a federal case in which you need a favorable ruling from a judge. I know. I used to practice in the federal courts before my retirement as an attorney. If you think that a more conservative Supreme Court will overturn Roe v Wade, think again. The right to an abortion has become so much a part of the fabric of our society that trying to again outlaw it will not succeed and will not be attempted no matter who is on the Court. (4) "I governed for all Americans". Facts: Right. You fomented hatred and divisions like no other President in American history. On the negative side we have the above described non handling and probable resulting worsening of the COVID 19 pandemic, withdrawal from the WHO and the Paris Accords, denial of science and global climate change which will increase future peril to the planet, destruction of many of our relations with our allies and fawning over dictators, telling over 30,000 lies, and more things than I have time to mention all of which was capped by fomenting and inciting an assualt on the Capitol in an attempt to overturn a confirmed and certified election. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
  5. I would much rather be a Democrat than be associated with the sorry ass excuses for traitors that try to claim they're Republicans these days
  6. Nah, the next four years will let me go back to being a Republican again, probably but fuck it, ghetto rats are still ghetto rats
  7. Funny you mention the cost of food which has skyrocket over the last four years and the price of gas that was lower under Obama than under Trump. Sounded good though!
  8. Bullshit, ghetto rats do it all over the country every day
  9. Philip Rivers retiring from NFL after 17 seasons, including last one with Colts While the world awaits what's expected to be a retirement decision from Drew Brees, another NFL legend has opted to make his decision quickly. Philip Rivers, 39, recently noted he'd consider retirement but was also open to returning to the Indianapolis Colts for a second year, if they'd have him. Just over one week after being eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game, Rivers is instead going to hang up his cleats -- he told The San Diego Union-Tribune -- ending a 17-year NFL career that will potentially one day see him inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "It's just time," Rivers said. "It's just right." The eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback already has the next step of his football life planned and ready to go. A native of Alabama, he'll take the reins as head coach of St. Michael Catholic High School in Fairhope, Alabama, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. "I can sit here and say, 'I can still throw it. I love to play,'" Rivers said. "But that's always going to be there. I'm excited to go coach high school football. ... What has helped me come to this (decision) is the growing desire to coach high school football. That's what I've always wanted to do. It's been growing. I can't wait." A former fourth-overall pick of the New York Giants in 2004 -- before being traded to the Chargers minutes later for Eli Manning -- Rivers was once the main attraction for NC State, and there's a certain sense of nostalgia that will forever link Rivers to Brees, now continuing with the likelihood that both will be retire in 2021. When Rivers arrived in San Diego (where the Chargers were at the time), he did so as the backup to Brees, the latter going on to suffer a career-altering shoulder injury that -- along with a dispute over a new contract -- would forever change the course of both careers. Brees joined the New Orleans Saints in 2006 and Rivers became the face of the franchise for the Chargers that same season, going on to earn a list of NFL honors in the process. And, needless to say, things worked out swimmingly for Brees as well, but the two will forever be tied together. Rivers' decision to retire was not only swift, but a bit of an about-face when factoring in his outlook to begin the new calendar year. "I don't want to speak in absolutes because there is still dust to be settled, whenever this season ends, and I'll talk about it with my family," he said 19 days ago. "And the Colts have their side, but I still feel the same way. I hope there is a Year 2 [in Indianapolis]. I think I'm really gonna want to play again." He will instead turn to the coaching ranks going forward and the Colts will now enter the offseason looking to resolve their QB situation for a second consecutive year, having thrown a lot of money in their attempt to do so in 2020. Rivers inked a one-year, $25 million deal in Indy after parting ways with the Chargers, and the Colts now find themselves thrust atop the QB conversation this offseason alongside potential acquisitions like Carson Wentz, Matthew Stafford or, albeit unlikely, a disgruntled Deshaun Watson. It's unlikely they'll find the future at the position in the draft unless they're willing to apply for a mortgage and trade to the top of the first round, leaving their top options as a trade or to buy time with a veteran stopgap -- e.g., Andy Dalton -- something they've already shown they're not adverse to doing. Rivers rides off into the sunset with a list of achievements, but having fallen short of the one he most desperately sought to land -- a Super Bowl ring. He retires from the NFL having thrown for 63,440 yards and 421 touchdowns to 209 interceptions, and with a career record of 139 wins and 113 losses.
  10. That's an awesome way to watch it. You guys can both be on zoom in video chat and have your TVs on the game and talk about what you're watching with each other at the same time as if you were in the same room together
  11. well since nobody else has the problem then I guess the site just hates you also
  12. Again, you have the wrong person. How many times have we showed you that it's Trump who wears the diaper?
  13. President Joe Biden. It does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Sounds like an average Joe. Just another guy. The kind of guy that good Americans would want leading the nation.
  14. you may be surprised to know that I also wanted him to succeed. Hell, I voted for him, even if mostly I voted against Hillary but still it's the fact is he did not succeed. Right from the get-go his administration and his presidency was a shit show. A textbook example of how to create division amongst Americans, how to alienate have the country, how to destroy relationships with our allies, and how to be an indecent and immoral example.
  15. sneaking out to go to an alternate location to make his goodbye speech 4 hours before the transfer of power, refusing to acknowledge that he lost the election, refusing to stick with the tradition of personally being there for the transfer of power is not pure class you fucking robot.
