POST #1039: RANDOM OBSERVATIONS


What follows is merely an assortment of unrelated observations on current events. Similarities to any persons - living or dead - are purely intentional.

 1. Tax Time for The Donald:

The chickens are coming home to roost - with a horrible vengeance - for our esteemed ex-president. The people who look after these things have been legally ordered to hand over Trump's tax returns to the people charged with investigating these things. In other words, Donald wants no one to see what he has been up to as far as his personal finances are concerned. The public knowledge of this might very-well be the billion dollar shit-hammer that he has been fearing since the moment he announced his candidacy six very long years ago. He may be out of power now, but his existence continues to be the train wreck that we can't take our eyes off of. This should prove interesting.r

2. Andrew Cuomo:

It's official. As of two weeks from today, Andrew Cuomo will no longer be the governor of New York State. This is probably a good thing. He can no longer govern the people of the Empire State. It's over. His incredible career, which I believed would eventually lead him to the Oval Office, is as done-a-deal as is possible. He was a pretty good governor. This is tragic on too many levels to count. My sympathies for the women who had to work under him and his staff. I also feel terrible for his daughters and the fact that his poor mother had to live to witness this disgrace. 

3. Britney Spears:

I'm sorry, but I don't spend too much time thinking about Britney Spears. Sorry 'bout that. 

4.  Crazy Marge:

Marjorie Taylor Greene is seriously hinting that she will be a candidate for the presidency in 2024. This is a sort of "good news/bad news" scenario. The good news is the fact that, three years from now, the campaign for the GOP nomination should be packed to the rafters with unintentional humor. The bad news is that we shouldn't put it past the inmates of Idiot Nation to send her to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Good luck, America.

5. What happened to Matt Gaetz?

One would imagine that Florida's embarrassing congressman is grateful to Andy Cuomo for taking the spotlight off of him - if only for a moment. This period of relative calm will soon be over for poor old Matt, of that you can be certain. I always love it when the "Family Values" mob are exposed as the moral hypocrites they are. Keep your eyes on the implosion of Matt Gaetz in the weeks and months to come. Like Donald Trump and Crazy Margie Taylor Greene, the man is a walking-talking train wreck.

6. Raise a Glass to Biden:

Here's to Joe Biden for being able to get his one trillion dollar infrastructure bill passed. I didn't think he would be able to pull it off. Hopefully Republicans are coming around to the idea that, as taxpayers, we need to invest in America in order to keep it healthy. Only good can come of this. He's turning out to be a pretty good president, isn't he? We shouldn't be surprised.

Didn't a State recently refund Trump over a million dollars due to over paying taxes in their State?
Last month, the state property tax board voted 5-0 that the value of the Trump International Hotel & Tower had been over assessed, thus leaving Trump eligible for a refund totaling $1.03 million.

MSM

LOL

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger Mozart1220 said...

And who "over assessed" Trump's properties?

Trump himself, when he wants a loan. That's the issue. he over rates his properties for loans, and under rates them for taxes.

"A state" is pretty vague, and any "refund" trump gets is due to his LOSING MONEY which is an interesting situation for the "world's greatest dealmaker"

So, is trump a great businessman LYING about his income, or a failed businessman living off the tax laws?

AND WHY WAS HE SO AFRAID OF HIS FINANCIAL SITUATION BEING MADE PUBLIC?



Also, I notice that Sybil doesn't mind talking about trump when it suits him, in spite of the fact that TRUMP LOST THE 2020 ELECTION IN A LANDSLIDE and is no longer POTUS.

Maybe I should have used a REAL source like Twitter. LOL

Go figure Sybil doesn't comment on the CONTENT which is one more case of Black people being treated like criminals while doing absolutely normal things.

Yes, Trump got a tax refund. Oh Boy. Now maybe he'll have a few coins to rub together to pay the massive legal fees for the state and federal charges he's facing.

or maybe Vlad Putin took it as a payment on the $400,000,000 Trump owes him.

One thing we can agree on, Sybil is an expert on "what idiots believe".

More than 1 million untested for Covid 19 people have entered U.S. illegally in first six months of 2021

From January through July, the number totaled more than 1.1 million, enough to create the 10th largest city in the U.S.

Nice job Joe.

And Sybil is STILL obsessed with the poor BROWN people. Imagine his outrage if we started vaccinating these people at the taxpayer's expense.

But for some reason, Sybil NEVER mentions the group of people MOST responsible for the continued spread of Covid.

" Nearly half of unvaccinated respondents were Republicans (49% versus 29% Democrats), as opposed to 31% of vaccinated respondents who identified as Republicans and 59% Democrats."

Tara Reade: She’s a lifelong Democrat faced with the realization that a man she alleges to have both abused her trust and violated her body is now her President.

Let's hear it for Joe.

 
At 2:08 PM, Blogger Mozart1220 said...

Ah, Sybil...so easily triggered. And so easily distracted by the IRRELEVANT.

Reade has already been exposed as a liar (not all abuse victims are, so don;t go there). Her story has changed several times and her attorney dropped her as a client.

So by all means, OBSESS on that, while Trump still has about 60 women claiming harassment or outright abuse.

Here's betting Reade voted for Biden.

#6. Raise a Glass to Biden

President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act, which passed in March, put into place an ugly system of discrimination against whites. It offered debt relief to Black farmers but not white farmers. Another provision offered billions in aid to minority-owned and women-owned restaurants, but it told struggling restaurants owners who happened to be white men that they had to go to the back of the line.

The injustice was obvious. White male farmers and restaurant owners sued, claiming the anti-white provisions are unconstitutional. So far, they’re winning. In every case, federal judges have halted the race-based programs in the American Rescue Plan Act until the challengers have their day in court.

The infrastructure bill the Senate passed on Tuesday discriminates against whites at every turn.
The bill includes grants to install solar or wind technologies and generate jobs in areas decimated by closing coal mines or coal-fired electric plans. Here’s the catch: when contractors bid, the bill says minority-owned businesses will get chosen first. Bad news for white contractors and displaced coal miners, who are overwhelmingly white and need jobs. (Section 40209)

The same is true for the bill’s proposals to improve traffic patterns in cities. Contractors and subcontractors get priority only if they’re owned by minorities or women. White male business owners can take a hike. (Section 11509)

Thanks Joe for being the President of "ALL" Americans.

Yeah, WHITE people suing over discrimination. That's rich.

#6. Raise a Glass to Biden

Border agents are reportedly fed up with the handling of the border crisis by the Biden administration and are now leaking videos of just how overcrowded some of these facilities are near the border.

Video of an overcrowded Border Patrol facility in the Rio Grande Valley Sector from this week.

From the source: "This has surpassed the point of sustainability — this is lunacy."

— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) August 11, 2021

The Biden administration’s handling of the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border continues to flounder as the massive influx of people illegally crossing into the U.S. remains at an all-time high, leading to overcrowding at holding facilities with COVID-19 still being an issue.

Remember the days, just a couple years ago, when Democrats and the garbage media were screaming about facilities filled with illegals in some of these same facilities, yet now there’s hardly a peep out of them. Large congressional delegations would tour these facilities and then lie about the conditions, claiming illegals are being forced to drink out of the toilet.

But what makes this is a lot worse is the far higher numbers of illegals crossing the border and that many of these illegals are bring COVID right into the country. Oh sure, the garbage media covers it a little. But when they do they certainly don’t blame Biden like they did Trump. No, they are nothing but a hyperpartisan media for the DNC who doesn’t actually care about the situation, only about tarnishing a Republican president.

Thanks Joe for caring SO much for Brown people.

 
At 6:31 PM, Blogger Mozart1220 said...

Twitter again... "border agents" ...pretty vague. I call BS.

First the infrastructure plan is discriminatory because it helps brown people, now you claim he doesn't care about brown people.

Maybe you should worry about all the CONSERVATIVE Americans who refuse to be vaccinated.

And what would you say if you found out Biden was having these "illegals" vaccinated before they entered?

But way to resort to infantile name calling. Your Orange hero would be proud. LOL


Still waiting for that source. I know what's in the bill. Biden got it done when Trump hardly tried.

And woodenman didn't say shit about me.

'It's Truly a Public Health Crisis.' One Border Town Is Busing Hundreds of Untested Illegals to Austin and Houston Every Day' Link for Mofarty to not use and then claim he needs a source...

KXAN TV in Austin reports that Laredo, a city on the Texas border with Mexico, is shipping hundreds of illegal aliens north to Austin and east to Houston every single day. None of them are being tested for COVID.

Calling it a “public health crisis,” the mayor of Laredo told Border Report on Wednesday that his South Texas city is sending busloads of migrants to Austin and Houston without testing them for coronavirus.

Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz (D) said the city is sending four charter buses per day with a total of 200 migrants who have been sent by Border Patrol from the Rio Grande Valley to Laredo. The migrants, mostly all families, have legally been released by federal authorities to travel in the United States.

End Run Around Constitution? Biden Admin Pressures Facebook to Censor Americans...

President Joe Biden is at odds with the First Amendment. His administration has reportedly pressured Facebook for several months to censor Americans who post views contradicting the administration’s COVID-19 narrative.

The First Amendment prohibits the federal government from restricting the right of Americans to freely express their beliefs. However, in an attempted end run around the Constitution, the Biden administration has pressured Facebook to adopt the government’s position on “misinformation” concerning messaging about COVID-19, according to The New York Times.

At 6:38 PM, Blogger Mozart1220 said...

Sybil doesn;t seem to understand that PRIVATE COMPANIES are not covered by the 1st amendment and can "censor" anyone they want.

Sybil also doesn;t understand that it's better to use cheap oil from the Middle east (cheaper the more they produce) than to use up our own reserves.

Another thing Sybil doesn't get is that "defund" doesn't mean get rid of cops. It means we put the money now spent on military hardware police DON'T need into TRAINING they DO need concerning dealing with the mentally ill and you know...BROWN people.

ALso, the XL pipeline had nothing to do with any oil sold in the USA, and no long term
American jobs were lost.

ANd if you could care less (The correct phrase is COULDN'T care less) why did you even bring it up, other than to distract from the REAL subject with is Trump's continuing legal troubles.

And in closing, I'd like to see Mofarty source's to support his claim of how oil prices work...what an idiot.

Tom listed Brittney, but if you "COULDN'T" care less, why comment at all?

And maybe Sybil should go back to high school. See when there is a LOT of something it's less valuable than when there is very little. Basic economics.

I lived through the "fuel shortages" of the 70's when OPEC GREATLY REDUCED PRODUCTION TO DRIVE UP PRICES. It was on the news every day.

Does Mofarty like cheese with his whining?

 
At 7:38 PM, Blogger Just the Facts! said...

According to a preprint study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), minorities are far more likely to be “vaccine hesitant” than White Americans. Comically, the study claims that lack of vaccine access is part of the reason for this, a claim that defies logic at every conceivable level. Someone does not become “vaccine hesitant” because they have less access. If anything, lack of access may make them desire the jabs more.

Illogical conclusions of the study aside, the raw data is telling. Whites are the least hesitant Americans at 7.3%, followed by Asians at 10.0. Both Hispanics (15.6%) and mixed race or other (16.6%) were more than twice as likely to be concerned about the vaccines than their White counterparts. Black Americans are by far the most hesitant with over a quarter, 28.0%, claiming some degree of hesitancy in getting vaccinated for Covid-19.

Still using MY words because you have no thoughts of your own? LOL How typical.

I could not help but notice that you conveniently left out WHY certain people are hesitant to be vaccinated.
