2 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, July 31, 2021. On this day in 1941 Under instructions from Adolf Hitler, Nazi official Hermann Göring, ordered SS General Reinhard Heydrich to "submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired Final Solution of the Jewish question."

28 Dragging up a response from below:

It sounds like somebody read my ideas, since that No Confidence idea is similar to one I've been pushing in various places for a while.

The people of any democratically-elected nation should have the option to hold a petition drive to hold a national No Confidence vote.

If the No Confidence vote passes, every elected national office is vacated, and no incumbents are allowed to run for re-election in the special election to follow.

Every socialist/communist plan requires just a few people to be imprisoned or eliminated. In Germany, it was the Jews. Pol Pot needed to eliminate the educated, so about one third of the country was murdered. Russia had the created famines that wiped out about 5 million in a year. Who know how many Moa killed with moving city dwellers to the country.

How will this play out in the US? Do you get rid about 175 Million Trump voters? Or like Ayers thinks move about 30 Million to reeducation camps (half will die) and create a new society from the remaining?

Posted by: rhennigantx at July 31, 2021 05:25 AM (yrol0)

45 Trump has repeatedly claimed his taxes are on the up and up and yet the Commies want to see for themselves.
That's weird because the Commies claim Nov 3 and Jan 6 were on the up and up but routinely throw around words like "conspiracy theorist" and "threat to our Democracy" when Americans, the people they "work" for, want answers. Answers that are rightfully ours to examine.

I think there should be a lifetime federal "service" limit. No more than twenty years, in any position.

That might be 6 in Congress, 6 in the Senate, and 8 as President.

That might be 20 years for the IRS.

At 20 years, you get a silver watch (because gold is too good for government), and you get to carry your 401K (no more special pensions!) to the private sector.

The only thing that could possibly be embarrassing is he may not be as personally rich as he has portrayed.


The other angle of attack they seem to be going down is that his taxes may show differing valuations for some of his properties vs what they been appraised for insurance and other taxing purposes.


The bottom line is this, Trump doesn't do his own taxes, so the most that can be done would be to fine his corporation and claw back any money the government thinks is underpaid or owed.

They've banged up the CFO on literally bullshit nonsense.

Trump is the cleanest person ever to run for politics if after 5 years of the LE/IC/Deep State leaving no stone unturned, they still have got nothing.

Just like the trillion dollar smear machine of globalist media could find nothing. No politician was ever as phenomenally clean as Trump. Thus they invented luridly ridiculous hoaxes like Russia and exploited uniformed creeps like Vindman and fabulists like Schiff to read lies into the Congressional transcripts.

At this point, they've all had enough warning what's coming. Those burned deserve it for being weak and/or stupid.

I think if the entire story about Biles's withdrawal from the Olympics comes out, it won't be very creditable to her. What does get me annoyed is the media Simone Biles Enablement Complex that attacks anyone who questions her divinity.

She cracked mentally at a vital time. It happens and it's too bad that she revealed herself to be human. But instead we're being told that this is another sign of her greatness. Sorry, I'm not buying it.

312 So I know not to get medical advice on the net, but... my ankles and feet have been swelling up. I think(?) some skin cells died because the tops of my feet have more freckles.

Low circulation? Aspirin seems to stop the swelling. Maybe warning signs of diabetes? Stopped all sugar intake.

No worries, I AM going to have the doc check me out next week, but I was wondering if these were standard symptoms of something.

Actually did that as a kid. Remember the old electric charcoal starters for BBQ? Dad set it down in the grass, I come out (age 5?) to show him my new Snoopy and OF COURSE plant both feet on it.

**

Apparently CNN reported that - Biles being pro-BLM and pro-violence (she stated that herself) - she was being pressured to protest by her BLM cohorts and chose to quit instead in order to attempt to placate both sides.

Sorry, dear. That's not how it works. Enjoy your BLM friends.

327 I know the Biles stuff is a dead, moldering horse at this point, but our FM talker had some guest on from "inside" the weird gymnastics world. He was speculating that a LOT more abuse allegations are going to come out before the closing ceremonies.
He jogged my memory re: the gross coach who molested all those girls. Apparently Biles was a part of that.
Also, Japan banned most common medications from coming into county. If she was on any anti-depressant, even legal by WADA standards, and was forced to go cold-turkey, that WILL mess you up.
