    The ADL definition doesn't even fit, "white supremacist belief that the white race is in danger of extinction by a rising tide of non-whites"

    If they looked a bit closer, they would see that Jews ARE WHITE too.

    That part about whites becoming a minority is true, I read an article somewhere where brown people will become the majority in about 15-20 years from now, and black people won't be far behind. Can we imagine a place where whites in the USA will be a minority? I'd be okay with that, maybe they could run things better than the white elites. The Europeans pretty much wiped out all native Americans here with their swarming of it, and the republicans denigrate illegals for swarming our border, sheesh, go figure. Who are they to talk?

    Believe me, if those insurrectionists would have been Biden backers, the GOP would be hanging them high, and it wouldn't have taken this long to do it either. The reason the GOP doesn't care is because those rioters are their ilk, it's in their DNA.

    I keep a low profile in this town I relocated to because most people here talk the talk and act like insurrectionists. Every other business you see here and every other pickup truck you see here is sporting the confederate flag. And this state voted a democrat for governor, go figure. I now view any republican or confederate flag waver as radicals. Or batshit crazies.

    Call me dumb as a box of rocks, but what the hell does it mean? Jews will not replace us? I've only recently heard that phrase used during the Charlottesville insurrection. I am well aware of some of the KKK's rhetoric. But not all.

    If he perpetrated a publicity stunt, it backfired very well. He has lost all credibility as a victim, and a black victim of violence at that. Kim Foxx and her cronies in the Cook County justice department have to answer for their shortcomings. But citizens keep voting for this fool. I don't know why.

    The legislation is supposed to be passed by the senate (members who hold the purse strings) so to speak, is over 2,000 pages in length.

    If any member here can get a link or a copy of it, I'd like to see what's in it for red and blue states. Which will get the lion's share?

    I'd like to know what is in the bill because earlier they were saying it'll provide free internet service nationwide, I think that's a pipe dream. Yeah, there is technology these days for radio traffic, they call this technology repeaters, a radio signal is sent to a tower, then the signal bounces from one tower to another, repeating the original signal, can this be done with wifi?

    Funds for roads and bridges, funds for this and that. I imagine that about 70% of our bridges in the USA are structurally deficient. Meaning they could fail at any time, without warning.

    I'm thinking some of this government money will be misspent, or money will go down a rabbit hole somewhere.

    CREDIT CNN: The deal would also invest $66 billion in passenger and freight rail, according to the bill text.

    Okay, so freight trains will receive federal dollars. Why? Freight lines, like the union pacific are already getting federal money. The UP transports tons and tons of coal from the west, and is getting top dollar for that, yet their rails are in a state of disrepair.

    I used to watch hardball, I liked his style, but, I felt he would've been better suited for MTP, Sleepy Chuck's show. The only thing republicans understand how to do is play hardball anyway.

    If Alsii Babbitt had survived being shot by a cop in their line of duty, I can imagine the gop coming to her rescue when a group of democrat senators questioned her on her motives to try to forcefully enter the chambers of congress.

    Her answer would be something like, "I just wanted to wish congresspersons well in their tallying of the votes".

    yeah, right.

    Donald Trump day? The day democracy died, or, almost died.

    The Topic is low hanging fruit for me. I once passed a room in a government building. In the room there were several potential immigrants. I stood and listened for a little while. I'm sure they were being properly indoctrinated per the propaganda and mythology of America. In terms of politics or political systems, I have little doubt that they are more knowledgeable than the majority of Americans.

    The Americanizing for Natives was substantially different. Multiple generations of Native Americans and particularly the children were placed in various brainwashing, re-education programs and foreign lifestyles. These were initiated and implemented by government entities and religious institutions who fight/fought over territories to do their holy and lucrative work. There were similar "schools" in Canada where the same re-education, acculturation, Christianizing and assimilation were practiced.

    Here is a link to recently found graves: Canadian First Nation group finds 751 bodies in unmarked graves at another 'Indian residential' school run by Catholics where children were 'assimilated' into society

    They trained us to be soldiers and cannon fodder in their wars as well able to perform menial jobs so they could serve farmers and other white Americans business interests. Image here. Punishment was doled out for any native cultural practices or for speaking their own language . The women often became abused sexual slaves and domestic workers. A wide range of horrors HERE. In modern society we know what kind of severe dysfunction or social/psychological damages people exposed to these abuses, creates. This system or these methods are known now as being amongst the descriptors of genocide as cited by the United Nations.

    Perhaps I'll do some blog posts later with proper references. For me it goes without saying that such topics are very difficult and upsetting. The Republicans, and sometimes others, tell me to get over it but they don't realize that colonization is still very much ongoing; which makes the whole immigration topic circular. They don't understand this happened to my great grandfathers, my grandfathers, my grandmothers, my mother, my father, all my relatives and myself as well.

    My choice to be what is termed Democrat, liberal or whatever designation that fits in the ideological realm, is for me the choice of lesser evils. I have often considered that what they did to us, someday they will do to their own.

    The Americanization of native "so called" Americans.

    You know, well, you don't. About me. I'm always looking up names to try to find out their ancestry or ethnicity. I don't know why, but I do. My mom's last name was Gaston, I looked it up, and found some French origin. And some German. My grandma on my mom's side was a Cherokee, so what % of Cherokee does that make me? IDK. The only thing I can figure is that one of my grandpa's was either French or German from immigration and married my grandma who was a Cherokee Indian.

    Now, we all know about hitler trump's ancestry.

    But I watch nearly every documentary about native "Americans" which are aired on PBS, and some do tell the true stories of how the original peoples of this land were overtaken and indoctrinated and were taught the so called American language and customs. Right now, several native nations are trying to save and recover their native languages and customs because they've been cast aside and are nearly forgotten and not practiced by their young. It's sad to see cultures die off and losing their ancestral ways. In some case, well, maybe most, it was a crime to find out what Europeans did to the people originally in this land.

    Yes, the rich boys toys. An old saying used to be the difference between men and boys was the price of their toys, which is true. When I worked as an automotive technician, I prized my collection of special tools to perform special or certain repairs, I valued my tools and equipment as priceless, people I used to know bought fancy boats and fancy 4 wheelers, the more a person had monetarily the more they spent on expensive toys. I was happy with a $50 torque wrench that clicked when it reached the required tightness. go figure. I still think those billionaires wasted money on being showmen, they're no different than the Loser who just left the white house.

    As for going into space with new technology, Bezos basically used what NASA had a patent on, a parachute semi soft landing back to earth. That's nothing new. And NASA had it right with the space shuttle, although it had flaws, it worked, from 1981 to 2011, 135 missions.

    Five complete Space Shuttle orbiter vehicles were built and flown on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, Space Shuttle - Wikipedia

    Based upon a reusable spacecraft thought of on paper in the year 1969.

    First wave, 2nd. wave, 3rd. wave, all bullsh*t, we never got out of the first, IMHO. This virus is just going on and on, with no end in sight. We should be asking the Chinese how they mitigated the virus and what protections they implemented to curb it's spread.
