If we get the right ~~person~~ rabbit, they won't have anywhere to go.

Then it behooves all of us who want to stop Trump to give them other reasons to vote for Biden. We need to let them know that Trump is not going to be any less supportive of genocide and it's either Trump or Biden. Voting third party or abstaining won't change that.

It helps if you try to convince people to vote on down ballot races too. Too many people think president is the most important thing to vote for when local and regional elections can matter far more on a personal level.

As I said, I do appreciate what they're doing. I just don't have much faith in it working when it comes to large commercial interests.

Apparently everyone who disagrees with you is a 'commie,' so...

He was anti-Bitcoin until recently though. Now suddenly he's all-in on it. Obviously something major has changed. One person speculated that this is to appeal to libertarians. I'm suggesting that along with that, the Saudis, who are in tight with Trump, just announced that they are abandoning the petrodollar and are considering trading in Bitcoin.

Sorry, Lakota. The white people seriously fucked you over in every way possible and that's going to continue. Your prophecy, nice as it sounds, won't help. I wish it would.

Loopholes will be found and be exploited. They always are. I appreciate what they're doing, but on some level, it's going the be playing whack-a-mole. Politicians are just too easily corrupted in a capitalist system.

I don't know which of your posts got removed, but 13 hours ago, this comment of yours got removed:

Dems and Leftists are brainwashed morons that cannot and will not abandon the teamsports mentality. by @berno

And why you think that wouldn't be removed in a community called Leftism is beyond me.

Why? Trump's people met with Netanyahu. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/donald-trump-foreign-policy-advisers-met-israeli-pm-netanyahu-source-says-2024-05-20/

Trump said only a fool would have not acted like Israel after October 7th: https://www.israelhayom.com/2024/03/25/trump-to-israel-hayom-only-a-fool-would-have-not-acted-like-israel-on-oct-7/

He said that he would bar Gazan refugees if he were president: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/oct/17/trump-muslim-ban-gaza-refugees

His son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner said Gaza's beachfront property could be valuable: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2024/mar/19/jared-kushner-gaza-waterfront-property-israel-negev

He said if elected, he would crack down on Pro-Palestinian protests: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2024/5/28/trump-promises-crackdown-on-pro-palestinian-protests-if-elected

The only way it would hasten Trump's rise is if people continue to not know all of that. Maybe they should be educated.

If only those terrible Democrats had offered the Republicans literally everything they asked for on immigration in a single bill.

Because I'm sure they definitely wouldn't turn something like that down.

Sawchuk would not disclose how much money he received for the junk, but said he was satisfied with the compensation, which will go toward helping build a new rink in the community.

"We got something for the skating rink in Ituna and that's what it was always about," he said.

Elon Musk would call this guy a fool for helping his community and making it a better place. I'm glad this at least cost his company some money.

American right-wing media Freedom New TV (FNTV) and according to several videos of the rally published by the organizers on the social networks.

Meaning that we could be talking about one or two flags shown through a distorted media lens.

That said, it should be on the demonstrators to ensure people waving such flags get put at the margins and I hope that is what is happening.
