    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    There were tens of thousands of former slaves following Sherman's Army and the order was to deal with short term settlement of these refugees so the Army will no longer need to deal with them. The long term nature of this has been disputed.

    US Politics: compromising positions

    For me, that Pearl Jam is form the U.S and formed makes Rep. Davis a bloody traitor. Also, Creed sucked so much that not even a Republican will acknowledge them today. On my gratuitous shot Creed shot

    RIP Luke Perry at 52 https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/pop-culture-news/luke-perry-90210-fame-dead-age-52-n979046 90210 was a big deal when I was young and Perry was a big part. His small part as Krusty's half-brother on The Simpsons was great in a episode with many high profile guest stars. I was happy for his part on Riverdale though my interest waned after the first season.

    U.S. politics. thread

    It is so great Sanders has to be concern with the optics of Maduro while Trump states how great of a friend he is with Kim Jung Un. Venzuela election were a problem but Egypt's SiSi locked up opponents, got 90%, and got a congtaulatory call from Trump, and Pompeo throwing Democracy in the MidEast under the bus.

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    There is intersections where one can be Pro-Zionist/Anti-Semetic as well. There is a good arguement that Netanyahu beem cultivating this the last few years. So, people like Soros can be attacked with many Anti-Semetic canards yet since Soros is not fervertly Pro-Israel and those who use it are, the criticism is more muted. I will caution that people who state they are Anti-Zionist can wind up using very Anti-Semetic imagery as well, and some use it to cover for Anti-Semitism. For me, Israel has many problem that needs to be more honestly discussed. When one wants to states Israel is The Problem is when it starts to be a problem.

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    The topic involved relates to matters Israel and AIPAC is the main lobby related to Israel. There is some confusion as related to Lobbying. As other poster (and the article I used though not highligted) noted, AIPAC does not do direct donations. They are in many ways gatekeepers to very lucrative donors. The Saudis need to spend more directly for there is not as many lucrative donors they can act as the gatekeepers on.

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    AIPAC is a lobby like the NRA, and ones that Health Insurance companies, Pharmaceuticals, and Oil and Gas companies have. The money those other are able contribute directly or indirectly gets discuased several times.

    US Politics: The Accountability Problem

    How do you think AIPAC infuelnce if there is not a implicit access to a well heeled donor class? In the U.S money has a very strong role in politics. This is a few select points from a Mondoweiss article https://mondoweiss.net/2019/02/israel-christians-republicans/ FWIW, your reply is to a fellow Jew so I very much understand the concern of Anti-Semitism. At the sametime I think that are very extreme position have been mainstreamed as it concern the Israel and Palestine. That U.S is viewed to be as a main broker in the dispute make these positions very concerning. I understand how some of Rep. Omar remarks can slipped into some terrible stereotypes. I also know that there can be almost no criticism of Israel without being called accused of Israel. Considering what is to be the U.S role I find that extremely troubling.

    Favorite tweet I saw on Bezo v. Pecker Check out @matthewfederman’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/matthewfederman/status/1093663427753533440?s=09 1) Never start a war with a man who buys ink by the barrel 2) Never start a war with a man that delivers all those barrels with free two day shipping My irrelevant thought on Virginia are the Govenor and Lt. Govenlr need to go while the AG should stay for he handled the best I think one could in this case. Though the Republican Senate Leader got into game: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/top-va-senator-tommy-norment-swept-state-blackface-scandal-n969021 Meanwhile, saw a few tweet from Floridians thanking Virginia yet knew Flordia could not keep out of it. https://atlantablackstar.com/2019/02/07/florida-republican-refuses-to-resign-over-blackface-photo-says-he-was-only-impersonating-his-friend/ Though this look a little desperate: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/florida-city-commissioner-resigns-following-complaints-she-licked-men-s-n968791

    Was Buzzfeed "Sacrifice" manuver on Mueller's part? I am not mean that Mueller's statement was false but more to get some praise from Trump so when Trump goes back to "Witchhunt" is loses more punch.

    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    Not calling PI is inexcusable and has to be properly addressed even if The Saints won. I wanted to be some Devil's Advocate for those parts were still own my mind and, at least what I listened, never seem to be brought. Well on to Superb Owl.

    The officiating need to be held accountable including Refs being fired. I just also thinks that part of game is to overcome bad (non)calls. I understand the situtation involved with the call being made. It is just the Saint's still had means to win the game. The Saints Defense still failed to keep LA out of FG range and the Offense turned it over they got the ball first in OT.

    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    A couple last thoughts before the NFC championship game is too old: They should allow challenges for the major penalties like Pass Interference and Personal Fouls. I think these penalties are usually one where the actions involved are easier to be reviewed. As much the call had a mammoth impact on the game I have some issues with the absolutism of the Saints' were robbed. Saints still took the lead and the Ram's still how to get into FG range. The Saint's got the ball first in OT and end the game with a TD. I can understand about all of the intangible of the horrible non-call yet in the end they still had control to win the game.

    Covington H.S is appearing more to be what people think they are: https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-sports-covington-nathan-phillips-nick-sandmann-20190121-story.html The twitter in the article state the photo is 2015. The article could not confirm however Covington's own video show people in black face and as well as full body. Yes, it does not involve the student(s) involved at D.C in either case. I do think it is showing an example what this place is promoting and educating.
