All the nasty name calling seems to come from one side, though. Yes, each side shows their agenda. That will always happen. But, it is the way each side's agenda is presented. If you watch any hearings at all, the subject will always say "thank you for the question" or something similar. ...Jump to post
It probably started with the parents. I just read a quote from the mother saying she lost her "daughter". So the parents accept their daughter for who she is and that is a problem why? Wrong again. If you're going to argue, at least know one or two facts first. They were born a female and...Jump to post
White male shoots up a school. Sadly just another Monday. Well It appears that the most recent 4 school shooters (Uvalde, Michigan State, Denver and now Nashville) were all perpetrated by non-white individuals. So white males aren't the only crazy ones here in the ol' USA. There is zero excuse for ...Jump to post
It could have been the format? I never watched Jay Jay but I did watch Thomas. I think Thomas had a much bigger following because Ringo Starr and George Carlin were narrating. It brought in the target audience but, also, parents and grandparents.Jump to post
But we can see now that Cruz is trying to tank Nolen's aspirations as he just wants to score political points rather than properly vet anyone.

As of now Phil Washington has been CEO of DIA for 21 months. Nice try. At the time he was nominated he had less than one year of experience. Laughable.

So now we wait for the DOJ to go after the leaders that brought them there to attack democracy and the will of the people. Yes, the DoJ seems pretty intent on charging the instigators as well.
