That explains a lot of about why the Missouri college system is so liberal and worthless, the Chinese are running it. It can’t get anymore apparent with what’s wrong than that.

@6:36 -

Actually University of Missouri President Choi is an American of South Korean heritage.

He is actually doing a great job for taxpayers by making needed budget cuts to ensure the financial stability of the University of Missouri. Choi is cutting the fat.

The tenured professors do not like Choi because he is holding the professors accountable and making them teach in the classroom instead of sitting on their asses doing nothing.

FYI - The South Korea Army (ROK) incurred 500,000 casualties fighting the Chinese to a stalemate during the Korean War. The ROK is a great fighting force and ally of the United States. They hate Communism as they know what communism has done to North Korea.

Calling Dr. Choi a Communist Chinese is very insulting and bigoted.

Every "conservative" on this blog has given me reasons why I should be banned from this free speech zone.

Now, one of them posts his evil racism under my name.

I don't know why he's trying so hard to prove that he's not as good as me.

Naturally, he won't use his name.

He's afraid he'll be held accountable.

drug manufacturing needs to be done in the usa.

so does other strategic material and medical equipment.

socks and clothes are ok to import, but not things we'll need when the door closes.

636, your comment was not right and, unfortunately, besmirched some great, stalwart patriots.

the korean-americans i've known are stand-up people and often tough-minded freedom fighters.

Great idea to bring drug manufacturing back to USA!

Guess Kodak is happy, too.

Kodak will also be bringing jobs back to a great industrial heartland.

Byron, I think we may assume probably all the folks posting on TKC, if not city denizens, are at least area residents, except for you.

You, alone, all by yourself, are the only commentor living hundreds of miles away.

Could it possibly be because, like us, nobody anywhere near where you live gives a shit what you think?

Again, let us know where else you post. Please enlighten us.

And under the outstanding National Leadership we have the United States has now joined India and Brazil as one of the three leading "Hot Spots" for Cofefe-19 virus infections and deaths, according to leaked Official documents.

Under the Trumpcare Health System, apparently the only "doctoring" being done is of the numbers being publicly released.

Extra, extra, get your hydro. Get your Demon Semen while you stock up on that shit too.

And on cue, Trumptard uses this kook as an example of a fine doctor recommending Hydro.


And on an adversary arming our enemies in Afghanistan and what's the reaction "meh, we did it too". This guy is PRO-FUCKING-MILITARY baby! Why wouldn't you vote for this dipshit?

Trump has really delivered on the Kung Flu cures.

First UV light in the body. Then injecting disinfectant bleach into the lungs for a cleaning.

Now we get a "doctor" warning about alien DNA prescriptions, demon sperm, and masks that don't work.

Yes, Trump is really killing it out there. When is this magically going to disappear again? Easter? When the weather warms up? In the rear view mirror by Memorial Day? Rocking and rolling by July? China virus free now? Great 3rd quarter? Yep, Trump is absolutely killing it.
