Joe Biden and his cohort went to the CCP meeting with communist China. People bitch because everything is made in China and all of our jobs are there but they hate Trump who wanted to get our manufacturing jobs back. Tell the democrats if they want a job to go to China, don't hire them. When China buys the rest of our farms to feed their people tell the hungry people here to go to China to get food. See where that gets ya.

Don’t mark my words, mark the words of our Constitution.

This is a threat on our national security.
It’s an attack on a free people and their inalienable right to choose who is going to govern them.

It’s an attack on our Constitution that was written to protect people from this kind of thing, by giving the Constitution legal supremacy over state laws.
If this attempt to steal the election is successful we will become a one party country, the democratic party for they will steal every Local, County, State and Federal election from this time forward.

And if there is one thing people should have learned from history, it is this.

History has taught and is teaching how the Democratic Party is the party of oppression.

Gww, 600 or 1200 bux. Last of the big spenders. At least it's not convenience or check fees like the tightasses in Jackson County.

Alpinista said...

Chuck, you racist puke, Biden is a white man.

Most of the people in government are still white men.

You never explain why you say this ridiculous thing you keep repeating. Why do you think people want white boys dead? The evidence suggests that America hate Black Men, not White Men.

I mean, you've taken victim-hood to new heights, (or new lows.)

You can see a psychiatrist at the VA for free. Get some help for yourself. How can you be happy being so miserable.

In the meantime, most of us are tired of reading your insane rants.

Bandit said...

That's why white men were out burning cities, looting and assaulting this year right 10:19? Do everyone a favor and pull your head out of your butt.

Alpinista said...

Retard, the riots were started by white extremists who wanted the chance to fight some Black Men.

Kyle Rittenhouse wasn't defending his uncle's business, he was marching down the street carry an assault rifle with the other vigilantes.

He wanted to kill some Black Men, & that's what he did, & that's why the racists thinks he's a hero.

White police men are still killing unarmed Black Men in "self-defense".

White radical Republicans are the ones carrying assault rifles, denying science & attempting to subvert our democracy.

You've huffed enough paint tonight 10:34.

Hunter.....yawn. Right up there with the Trump family being banned from running charities because they steal from them.

Let me know when Hunter get's appointed to a cabinet position ala Jared and Ivanka, then I'll give a shit.

Anonymous said...

Jared and Ivanka were never appointed to cabinet positions. Try harder to keep up.

Anonymous said...

^^^you're right, I'll take the L on that one. Just advisers with top secret security clearance. Of which, Jared was denied because, well, he's using his position to grift and by the book shouldn't have that access. Alas, POTUS overrode that denial, because, well, grifters gonna grift.
