Kylie is all about putting on a good show. It's not her fault that most of it is plastic.

T Mobile won't advertise on Tucker Carlson? Who gives a fuck? In the (left slanted) article, Tucker is described as "right winged". How about "conservative" to be more accurate? The left, and in particular, the media, hate, hate, hate Tucker and Hannity because their huge viewership ratings dwarf MSM's. They will do and say anything to diminish or eliminate this lone vital outlet that continues to expose their bias and their unrelenting march towards socialism, even communism.

That's because the current roster players act like thugs and hooligans. Hank would have handed Tyreek a shine box and kicked him out the door.

360,222 people died during the Civil War fighting for the freedom of black slaves.

When was the last time you saw a BLM protester, Rev Cleaver or Al Sharpton or any black activist ever in public thank all those who died for their freedom?

Thanks for the West Bank article.

Things do feel like annexation is almost a fait accompli.

NaziDave, when have you publicly thanked all of the black people who died to maintain your white privilege?

NaziDave is a racist & his hatred of blacks always shines through.

There, I fixed it for you.

^^^So says a Com-symp. Your heroes killed more people in the 20th century than all the Nazis and Fascists combined.

Racists? Most of the American blacks who fled to Soviet Russia died in the gulags. Paul Robeson was an exception, but only because he was willing to condemn his brothers in race as part of his utter devotion to Stalin.

That's your heritage, chump.

Boomers: 18th and Vine is a murder zone. Dont support it. If you do then you support murders. Jazz died out long ago. This area should also die. Do you really want naive out of towners visiting here on vacation to bring their familys to 18 & vine in their new SUV?

Byron you stupid fuck!

What black people died to maintain any white privilege?

GD you're one stupid asshole cunt.

Always tell when Dave makes sense because Byron loses it and starts calling people Nazi's.
