He could model his resignation after Nixon's "You won't have Nixon to kick around any more" speech. Should be fun.

Ku protest included destruction of property everywhere and flying the LGBT flag front and center. With a Sign at the South Main Entrance stating that BLM is a ' Gay wrath " for past Treatment of LGBT community. I don't know why Fuzzy Tacos needed to be defaced nor the Park signs to promote a Gay Wrath. I thought it was about Blacks ? Additionally, there were no Black people setting it up during the hours I was present in that area, but there was a lot of car tags from texas, Alaska, south Dakota, Colorado, ill, New Jersey etc. All having Millies with purple, green and orange hair. Must have been the white skinned blacks that Africans eat to this date, like dwarfs. You know if that perfect Continent that none want to live in .

Maybe White Women are worth more as porn actresses because the vast majority of men (of any color) would rather watch White Women?

They're simply more attractive - a Black Woman's appeal relates directly to how "White" her facial features and body shape are.

Perhaps in a "perfect" World it would be different, but then look around, this one ain't.

That's not an entirely inaccurate point at least in terms of perception. I'll need to do more hands on research as to the quality of porn stars overall.

Pelosi has played Trump and McConnell so damned well on the idea of a second Stimulus Payment- since the House passed is easily several weeks ago, the Senate is now faced with passing (and Trump is faced with signing) the Bill, which will then become...

1) "the second check the Democrats got you" going into the Election, or
2) every Republican Candidate, local, State or National, will be facing a Democrat who can say "my opponent's Party is the reason you don't have $x,xxx.00 dollars in your pocket right now"!

Well played, Nancy!

Trump isn't quitting more fake news shit.

Why is it that every recommendation for "improving" 18th and Vine involves increasing the amount of tax dollars pouring into that black hole?
$7 million more from city hall after over $100 million had already been spent.
Now a CID, which increases the sales tax in an area that already generates so little revenue that it constantly requires subsidies and grants.
How about working to find some competent management, improve attractions to increase the number of visitors, recognize that in a small market like the KC metro the exhibits have to change to get repeat customers, improve the quality of the food and service in the restaurants, and have some decent marketing of the place.
People don't go to the area because there's nothing much there and after dark it's proven to be dangerous.
More money won't fix either as the basics aren't addressed.

I doubt Trump will resign. He would never place the interests of the country or his party above his own interests.

Ha! I see what you did there. I like it! Of course he'll quit. He hates being seen as a loser. Too late for that!

Doubtful Trump will resign. The piece of shit should resign. His disgraceful cock sucking of Putin after the Intelligence Community let him know in his brief that said cock he sucks has issued bounties on soldiers heads absolutely calls for it.

Not reading your daily intelligence briefings is not a defense. Our POTUS is hot garbage and a dog shit POTUS.

It's funny, haven't heard one of these Trumptard CHUD's come out in defense of our traitor POTUS. What's the matter, QAnon got nothing for you? Not willing to go with the "it was all made up by the deep state of the intelligence community to smear our dear leader"?

C'mon, those boots aren't gonna lick themselves Trumptards.
