  1. An immature, dumb as fuck boy.. skin and bones, just a high school diploma, no money and about to be homeless in a couple weeks walks into a recruiting office. 22 years later, traveled the world, fought in wars for our country, worked in the White House. Makes 6 figures a year. A reminder that there is all kinds of opportunity out there to be successful for people of any color and nationality. The only Trade off is you can’t be a piece of shit criminal. Merica! Fuck fucking yea

  2. 100% we need to make sure cops are much more mentally and physically prepared. And evaluated constantly to ensure they remain in the best possible physical and mental shape. They should be held to extremely high standards, their mind and body should be as clean as possible to ensure they are almost never clouded with emotional or physical stress. No drugs, heavy drinking, etc etc. There’s a ton of opportunity to reform the standards to wear a badge in addition to reforming the rules, eg. eliminate no-knock policy, etc etc etc. All this shit should be considered ASAP. But, it won’t be enough as long as we allow the narrative that cops are literally hunting black people to continue. It’s counterproductive and takes the spotlight off the criminals that are 99.8% of the problem.

  3. How / why in the fuck did I ever decide not to vote for trump 4 years ago. Complete and utterly ashamed. Just embarrassing. I was so blinded by his expression of speech on social media. I want to publicly apologize to hacker, Syphon, willy, NIp, and others. 4 more years !

  4. According to homicide statistics from 2016, the actual ratio of cop on black killings compared to black on black killings is 7% to 93%. You can’t point to the 7% and act like the world is coming to an end and then ignore/dismiss the 93% when the claim is that you deeply care about black lives. It’s a bullshit narrative. If you dare to point this out, then you’re a ‘racist!’ The media is the enemy of the people.

  5. i kind of look at it through this lense You see headlines that say former Marine killed xx or whatever per say it’s perceived that because headline said Marine, that dude has had all kinds of crazy training and skills and fucked someone up. in reality, depending on your skill set, job, length of time in, whatever, you may not have had any training.. hell you could have got kicked out of the service after 6 months but to the normal public they will just see the title long winded way of going about my point, but cops Differ on shapes, sizes, age, experience level, training provided. it’s easy to look and think of shooting at a firing range, 7 rounds spaced in between. But honestly, how many of you have been in situations, scuffles, where you started firing your weapon? I mean it’s just hard to put yourself in that position... and it’s just a fact, very few are trained enough with repetition im obviously all for an investment in Better police training, and better applicants. I don’t have good answers on what they are, it’s not my field. But there are definitely things that LE can get better at.. with that being said, it still circled back to the personal accountability piece on the individual with the warrant, and/or person committing A criminal act. This almost always gets lost in the shuffle. Mike brown, Atlanta cop shooting, this action just to name a few. There needs to be a recognition that criminal life is not an acceptable way to live. There needs to be action and funds given and invested into urban and low income communities. A real effort to give people a reason to live and a sense to succeed. Where they don’t want to fuck up. that’s way easier said than done, but I would much rather have every possible resource attempted towards people that want to do good and just need a boost., then to argue and try to make life easier for thugs to not get shot and live another day to steal, cheat, assault, etc.

  6. you do know that removing a statue doesn't erase history, right? You can read about them all you want. What does that say about this country that our history is solely taught by a 3 sentence plaque at the base of a statue?

  10. Have you noticed the intelligence of the American People ? Can’t even wear a mask for 5 minutes. And you want every vote to count ? You have 17 year old kids who drive 50 miles with a rifle in their hand and gee what could go wrong . You have 25 year old man who says . I have a skateboard . He has an AR-15. I got this !!! You have career criminals who have seen cops abuse people since Rodney King. And yet they still don’t comply with simple instructions. ( not justifying it for the asshole I’m better than you crew ) . And you have cops . Who know that there is a camera on every person and every corner in the world. Yet still do the same dumb shit over and over again. Let me shoot this guy 7 times . What could possibly go wrong ?

  11. My wife is darker than charcoal. Sons black. We don’t have scary conversations about the bad bad police man. Tend to focus our energy on building a habit of doing what’s right, consciously knowing what’s wrong, practicing good manners.. He’s like I know I know dad. Infinite one of the biggest lessons I always tell him that he’s tired of hearing is 99 percent of the time you are going to be doing the right thing. But 1 time out of 100 you are going to be in with the wrong crowd, or having 1 too many drinks before driving, or just in a situation That you shouldn’t be in but just are.. and it’s important that in that 1 percent of your life where you fuck up, don’t double down. Don’t run, don’t drive away, don’t talk back. Just own your shit, there’s always tomorrow. There’s always remedial. Don’t compound mistakes A lot of blah blah I know. But my end point is looking yourself in the mirror and being responsible for your actions. What happened to Blake happened because of him and him alone. Period. And he is paying for those consequences. Lucky for him we are in a time where people will knowingly throw money at him with go fund mes and help him out... and good for him.

  12. You're cool with vigilantes just running around cities and shooting people? You're ok with cops shooting people because they were unable to do their job? What if the three guys that were shot had zero criminal record at all, would that change your stance on this? It's so deflating seeing how results oriented we've all become these past 4 years. "Oh, those victims have a criminal history, fuck em, Rittenhouse is a hero and there's less scumbags on the street." That might be true, but I'm not comfortable leaving that for Rittenhouse or for cops to decide, and none of us should either. That's OUR job as the people. Are we going to judge the actions or the results?

  14. This whole situation is disgusting from people on both sides. Both sides are trying to spin this into something it's not. Can I believe that Jacob Blake is a piece of shit human, but still believe that police should not be judge, jury, and executioner? Am I allowed to believe in 2nd Amendment rights, but point out the hypocrisy of watching multiple videos of Rittenhouse running down the street, shooting people, and he subsequently walks right past cops with his hands up and while people are yelling at police that he shot people, especially when you consider that we saw a Blake shot because he was reaching for a knife? Being a piece of shit human does not justify being shot. Having a previous criminal record does not justify being shot. Going into a highly tense area, with a gun, and fearing for your life when someone chases you and throws a plastic bag at you does not justify fear for your life and murder. How did this become so political? Jacob Blake deserved to be arrested and those cops that arrived on scene showed how poorly equipped they were in subduing and arresting him. That costs him his ability to walk? I'm not even going to dive into the actual shooting because I can at least understand why the cops got to a point where they feel they needed to shoot. But why do those cops continue to not be held accountable for their fuck up? If I fuck up that bad at my job, I'm fired. I think 95% of the posters left on this site would say the same. These guys go on paid admin leave and will most likely keep their jobs. Jobs that are paid for by you and me. Doesn't that bother you guys? I watched this over and over and over and over when I did surveillance in Atlantic City - and I got it on film every time. Nothing fucking happens to these cops. It's nauseating. It's pretty incredible that all we want to talk about how much of a POS Blake because of his record and how nice of a guy Rittenhouse was because he cleaned some graffiti before he shot 3 people. I don't care about Blake or Rittenhouse because they're average Joe Schmoes but what of the cops that nearly killed Blake because they couldn't do their jobs? What of the cops that just let Rittenhouse walk through their barricade with a rifle and people shouting that he shot 3 people? Who the fuck are these cops working for? I have no idea how they're going to prosecute Rittenhouse. It seems like the only thing that's surefire to stick is the weapons charge and carrying it across state lines and recklessly endangering safety (maybe). Too many variables would explain his reasoning to shoot, even with how much I disagree with him bringing a rifle into a highly tense area that he doesn't even live in. Lawyers will be able to explain away his actions. It will piss a lot of people off. Fuck police unions. Fuck the media. Fuck the people that are losing focus on the real issue here by focusing on the shit that does. not. matter. Blake's criminal background does. not. matter. What Rittenhouse did before he shot people does. not. matter. Cops fucked up with Blake, they fucked up by knowingly allowing armed militia into a protest zone, and they fucked up by allowing Rittenhouse to just ... go home. Blake will serve his time. Rittenhouse will serve some time. What will happen with the cops?

  15. Rand Paul, the Republican US Senator from Kentucky, was surrounded by an aggressive mob leaving the RNC acceptance speech in Washington DC last night. An actual thin blue line of a few policeman is all that stood between the Paul’s and the mob. The mob was shouting death threats at Paul and his wife, targeting him by name, as well as chants of “say her name” and “Breonna Taylor”. Ironically, Senator Rand Paul is the author the “Breonna Taylor Bill” in the US Senate. The bill seeks to immediately abolish the practice of no-knock warrants, which is the police practice that led to the shooting and death of Breonna Taylor in March earlier this year.

  16. Obv Brianna Taylor didn’t deserve to die. Just some jail time.. or who knows, maybe totally innocent. I can’t totally see how dead people just show up in cars that you rent. Lots of bad luck going around lately. But after looking at all the evidence released, my girl wasn’t exactly the innocent type. Of course my mans glover Had gone missing since a warrant came out for his arrest, but he locked up again now. Lebron is kind of right. Criminals gonna get hunted. let’s keep funding the police to do their jobs! Love it Merica

  21. I get that. My kids have more in their 529s than I had liquid until I was over 30. They’re young. I pay college and then they take care of shit my kids haven’t started kindergarten. Yours seem a bit older.....and at least one doesn’t seem to swanning out based on your posts. At what point do you let them sink or swim? Have a partner who loves to enable, his oldest just graduated college at 28, 10 years for a bachelors. The other is 22. She’ll never be as successful as her sister. They still get an allowance, older one got married last year. He plays in a symphony at wages that couldn’t support pet food

  22. and another thing for kk Harris has shown to stutter and second guess herself on a debate stage. It's because she's playing a role and wants to make sure she spreads the correct message to her supporters Pence never stutters. He's completely at peace with who he is and what message he wants to spread I'm not religious. But believe me, Pence will destroy her in front of voters

  25. Split is set for the 31st. It really doesn't matter if you buy it now or post split since everyone knows the split's coming. In fact, I'd expect it to go up immediately after the split. I'd say wait for a down day and buy it on the dip. Additionally, not the best move to put everything in just one stock. Diversification is a better strategy but this is one that a lot of people have a lot of faith in, so there's that.

  26. I don’t think right now is the time I’d go nuts on blue chip stocks. Stack cash. Imo there will be better buying opportunities in the next 4-36 months. I’m very patient though. FOMO is killing a lot of ppl right now and again imo driving market. I hate holding bags im working up the balls to short tesla. Shorting momentum doesn’t generally work w shorts in my past experiences im being very patient w my long term buys as of now

  29. This would be one issue where I raise up to your high level and agree with. I’m not a gun fan . Fuck them. Would love to see them pass some kind of bill where parents of kids who commit gun crimes are as liable for the crime as the kid is. Maybe they will teach them a little better.

  32. Tonight the alternate reality convention continues. The one where there is no pandemic, all deaths in America are from natural causes. The protesting is simply anarchists trying to change the world for the worse in every respect. There's obviously no point in talking. The 30 million unemployed doesn't exist, in fact the greatest economy in history continues chugging right along. With Trump's guidance it will probably double, immediately after the election. Don't think about all those people lining up for free food, they're just lazy opportunists. There's going to be a powerful rule of law, just not on them, and transparency in this administration is a very strong commitment Trump will deliver on in February of 2024. Trump will continue to hire all the best people, right after he pardons them so they are released from prison. The hundreds of thousands of former Republicans who are pledging to vote for Biden are obviously just tired of all the winning.
