Show-Me Bad Timing

Missouri lawmakers move to make daylight saving permanent

Missouri's Republican-led state House on Wednesday advanced a proposal to make daylight saving time permanent. Lawmakers in a voice vote gave the bill initial approval.

Debatable Reform Underway

Schumer lays groundwork for future filibuster reform

But the effort is also a way to convince Democratic senators to agree to reform the filibuster.

Thursday Chill

Cloudy, cooler Thursday -- rain starts overnight


Billboard #1 for this week in April 1991, Londonbeat - I've Been Thinking About You is the #TBT song of the day and this is the OPEN THREAD for right now.


  1. Surely Kansas City's Blaque Community will now hve no objections if somebody names a store "For Whites" now, will they?

  2. ^^^^^^^

    I was thinking the samething. Funny how the blacks put everyone in the city out of business with their crime and then they turn around and say come support black business. Joe Biden says they aren't smart enough to us a computer and I agree. I do have a white owned business and I won't do business with blacks. In my line of work there is nothing they can do about it and no way to prove discrimination. So I'm good.

    I think this would be a most wonderful opportunity for all of us to pause for a moment and give thanks for the many great and multi-leveled contributions of the Black Community to our Society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other Culture.

    Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a People.

    They are THE MOST kind and loving of Neighbors one can hope for - Real Estate values are hyper-fueled exponentially by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an exquisite example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self-improvement by sweat-labored toiling and, most admirable - a rock-solid hard work ethic and a self-reliant can-do nature.
    There is hardly a Black Family that cannot boast of at least one hard-earned Citizenship Award or Community Service Accolade for service-above-self and self-sacrifice. Also, let us not forget, their over-whelming gracious Civil Obedience, and their total and unwavering respect and true reverence, both for our Laws, and the Rule of Law & Order & Justice. And, lastly, without their industrious and creative drive, we would surely be poorer as a Nation. 1619 Project be damned!

  4. @12:13 please list all of the businesses in the city closed by the blacks. Oh, and you're too fucking dumb to own a business. Nice try. Liar.


  5. This black owned company The Black Pantry is racist and I would like to urge everyone to complain about the racism this business is putting out there. Send emails and letters to your politicians and to EEOC as well as BBB. This is uncalled for and needs to be stopped. It's more than racism it's HATE

  6. I did not make the comment at 12:17.

  7. ^^ Funny Byron, that sounds a lot like something you'd say, twit.

  8. So China Joe Biden is blaming Putin and the Russians for ballot harvesting, fictitious mail in ballots, dead people voting, vote counting stoppages at 2:00 a.m. etc, in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Detroit, and Milwaukee.

    China Joe Biden, because he is so charismatic and full of energy, received the largest number of votes in U.S. history and he is blaming Putin and the Russians ?

    One cannot make this shit up. It's hard to keep up with the Communist Democrat Party fabricated stories and lies.

  9. ^ Joe Biden and his Communists are going to start a war with Putin and the Russians and 75 million million Conservative are going to sit back and say "not my President and not my war Democrats". Good luck.

    I would never want young men or women to lose their lives fighting for corrupt politicians like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Schitts, Nadler, Bernie Sanders etc.

    These corrupt Communist politicians will then turn around and murder veterans like they did Alisa Babbit - 3 tours in Iraq.

    How many days in combat for Biden and Pelosi = 0.

  10. Alisa Babbit was an enemy combatant killed in the midst of an attempted overthrow of the US Government. She absolutely got what she deserved. Unlike Trump, Biden is standing up to Putin and not bending over for him like Trump did.

    1. By bending over for China, being ridiculed by their ambassador, and bitching out of a conversation with Putin. A conversation. Because Putin knows Biden fumbles with putting a sentence together.

      Yeah, that's real brave lol


    Seeking immortality, I never pass on a chance to eat Ambrosio!!!

  12. "How many days in combat for Biden and Pelosi = 0."

    And how many for Corporal Bonespurs?

    1. Present Houseplant walked all over the graves of the Afghan war dead today. Of course he doesn't know where the fuck he is anyway but still.

  13. Alisha Babbit was killed by an unnamed black Capitol police officer. If the races were switched and Alisha were a Demoncrap, can you believe the officer's name would remain secret? No way in hell. The Demoncraps are full of sh*t and live by different rules.
