Everybody in the city knows not to drive through that part of swope park accept this one idiot, that floods every time we get semi heavy rain.

That’s nothing on elmwood and blue pkwy, it gets over a foot tall when there’s a heavy rain, I’m actually surprised nobody got pictures of flooded cars on cleaver, those people are stupid down there, they will get out of their cars and move the barricades only to get stuck in high water.... every time.

Jimmy Carter is to blame for the rise of Iranian extremism. His failure to back the Shah back in the 70's led to the return of Ayatollah Khomeini, and the rise of radical Islam. The Shah was a nasty guy and a puppet, but he was OUR puppet, and kept the religious freaks of Iran in check.

Carter has never been quiet about his own anti-semitism (read his books . . . he has long been a big fan of Hamas, and was a staunch supporter of the murderous Yassar Arafat and the Palestinian Liberation Front). Hating Jews is not an unusual trait in Southern Baptists.

I would not be at all surprised to learn that, in his younger days, Carter kept a few Klan robes in his closet

Another shooting in the Jazz District, this time in the heart of it at 18th & Vine. Cut our losses, no more tax money to fund it. Let it sink or swim on its own. The best things grow organically, like the Crossroads. You simply can't have any kind of businesses most people want to go to in the black neighborhoods. Just south of the Jazz District is some of the worst neighborhoods in KC. You can't expect regular non-violent people to frequent an area with such high crime.

Good morning diaper dandies! What's the no-life club angry about this morning? It's going to be a nice day today shut-ins. You might want to get outside some and try to find some purpose in your rapidly dwindling lives.

6:30 going off early with some solid tin foil bullshit. Maybe, for a change, what the US needs to do is stay the fuck out of shit? Everything we touch (ie meddle in) turns to shit and then we piss and moan about the results. You know why Hondurans, El Salvadorans, and Guatemalans keep showing up at our southern border? Because the US decided to fuck around in those countries years ago and destablize the governments. We're reaping what we sow.

^^^Baloney. Those countries' governments were crappy long before the USA took an interest in them, and have remained crappy at all times since. They didn't need us to destabilize, they did just fine all by themselves.

^^except they didn't, the US did it. Weird.

8:14 you should try a thing called research and look into facts. I know your hero doesn't believe in facts and repeats lies over and over but use your fucking head and do some critical thinking. I know it's harder than being spoon fed bullshit but you'll be better off for it.

^^^I'm not doing your work for you asshole. It's well documented that in order to stem the tide of Communism in Central America the CIA created and armed right wing death squads and propped up dictators and essentially destablized the region. If you can read and comprehend shit, you can use the internet to look into the American history of "fuckery" in Central America. It's pretty easy to find.

Talking to Trumpsters is like banging your head against a fucking oak tree. The revel in their stupidity. They'd argue that the color of the sky is pink if that asshole in the white house told them it was.

Well spoken 4:29.

We have invaded every Central American country, & Nicaragua twice. We waged an aggressive, elective war against Mexico for no other reason than to steal more land because we deluded ourselves into believing that God had given it to us.
