The Rosie Ruiz of biking to work.

 

so you don't in fact EVER put your bike on the back of your car.  Using the bike rack you bought, then drive somewhere then take said bike off and ride?

 

K.  

 

Thank god you found a minute and a half video with literally zero context to show us the error of our ways

Today’s GOP with Boebert, Cruz, Trump, Hawley, Gaetz, Green is not your granddaddy’s party of Lincoln, Eisenhower etc.

The only language they understand is strong arm tactics.

After 4 years of Trump, there is no more playing nice, win at any cost.

they have no intention of governing.  They are there for one reason and one reason only........to burn it down.

Had to chuckle at Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, declining to throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers' home opener against the Jays yesterday......

 

The party that whinges about cancel culture, boycotting MLB, because they took a stand against disenfranchising voters....:rolleyes:

 

It's too bad that the Rangers didn't have more imagination. The state Governor wasn't the only choice.....they should have put Beto on the mound....B)

Hmmm. I've never seen this before and must have posted it by accident I guess. As far as the migrants are concerned, it's true me and Ted don't care about them one iota, but we are pointing this out for you benefit so you can run down there and start bawling against the fence about the inhumanity of it all like you did when the situation was way less critical 4 years ago. As far as Pete is concerned, the story may or may not be factual, but what it does clearly show is that he's a silly poser.

In just what way does that video "clearly show" he's a poser, exactly?

Oh, and don't forget that Biden is sub human etc. etc.

 

I will make an amendment though. We do care about the minors who have been victimized by their parents. Social services should step in.

May or may not be factual but I'll post it and claim he's something even though I've no idea if it's true or not.

 

But I want to believe it so confirmation bias.

 

By the way...it's not true

Snopes isn't really the be all and end all when it comes to fact checking anymore. It's 50% owned by Proper Media, an online ad agency. As well, they have very little in the way of editorial oversight and don't really follow any journalistic practices. In fact, the company has no valid screening process when hiring and screening potential "fact-checkers" for their site, according to former employees.

Fine.  Fact check the other 1.4 million stories stating the same thing then.

 

Bottom line it's a false story like Jill Bidens leggings having a print on them

My post wasn't so much speaking to a specific story, but the fact that even the fact checkers now are compromised. It seems that we live in a time where everyone has a price, and the truth, whatever that is now, can be bought and sold.

No argument there.  

 

But that story initially came from Breitbart and was destroyed in minutes even by FOX

Everyone has a price. Always been that way.

 

If ppl were smart they would stop with all this BS getting mad and start getting money.

In no way am I interested in what snopes has to say. Neither of us know if it's true or not. The fact checkers are political entities. That's the whole debate. People vs institutions. You support institutions.

Now that the election process is definitely opaque, the institutions (and you) have nothing to worry about, barring some sort of miracle. Hopefully the world they give you will align with our personal needs.
