    Check this video out, Cenk Uygur explains how the Department of Defense paid the NFL for so much patriotism propaganda to get more people to join the National Guard and other shit. Talk about disturbing.

    The Young Turks “NBA Champions Burn Trump”

    Go Stephen Curry! I live in the Bay Area and am forever a proud Golden State Warriors fan just as I am a proud progressive who hates Trump and his attacks on free speech! Curry, Kerr, and even Lebron James have no excuses at all, just sincerity, honesty, intelligence, and empathy. Why can’t any of them be our President instead of the orange misogynist Nazi-pandering idiot we actually have?!

    I was so devastated when I found out about this guy. Read his story, the guy saved Gerald Ford’s life, he was a national hero who had also fought in Vietnam… but then he life was destroyed when he was OUTED as being gay, at least in part due to the noble but ultimately horrific impact of his best friend Harvey Milk. YES, that Harvey Milk.

    Oliver Sipple. Say his name. 😐

    Why Donald Trump will win a second term:

    Jobs
    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added 1,405,000 jobs in his first eight months (January through August 2017.)

    At the end of his 2nd term President Obama said that jobs were not coming back.  (Obama lost (4,367,000) jobs in his first eight months in office.)
    But no one told President Trump.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more Americans are in the work force than ever before.  Over 160 million Americans are working for the first time in US history.

    GDP
    A couple of days ago FOX News reported that Second Quarter US GDP grew by 3.1%.  According the Bureau of Economic Analysis the US GDP grew to an astounding $19.25 Trillion.  This is the highest GDP in US history.

    And the USA Federal Debt has been reduced by $100 billion…not too shabby.

    The San Juan mayor is uncooperative, obstructionist and a true progressive, an idiot who does not care about the people she is supposed to represent, not at the cost of resistance…akin to criminal negligence.

    The mayor of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico cast serious doubt Saturday on the claims made by San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has repeatedly attacked President Trump and accused him of abandoning Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
    Guaynabo’s mayor, Angel Perez, said in an interview with The Daily Caller that his experience with the federal government has been different from Cruz’s, in part because — unlike Cruz — he has been participating in meetings with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies.Cruz, a Democrat, has repeatedly accused Trump and the federal government of abandoning Puerto Rico. She demanded in a press conference on Friday that Trump do more to help the island, adding that “we are going to see is something close to a genocide” if more is not done.

    Perez’s comments echoed what FEMA administrator Brock Long said on Saturday. Long defended Trump’s tweets blasting Cruz and indicated that Cruz has failed to connect with the FEMA command center set up on the island to help with the relief effort.

    “If there was not an interest in helping Puerto Rico, we wouldn’t have the visits from the Congress and the visit from the president — it would never happen,” Perez said.
    “In other times there’s been other presidents that never visited. So right now by President Trump coming here, it’s very helpful and giving us the expectation and the hope that the help will be coming to Puerto Rico.”

    When I first joined Gold Derby, my moniker was melobruceiam, and then it mysteriously changed to melobruce, and finally someone changed it to bruce melo, and then I could no longer log in.  There are plenty of awards related posts under my original names, but very few in the last year.  I was forced to change my name again, this time with 2 ls in my name.

    I found it upsetting that my real name was posted for months, but I left it…just don’t care.  There has been precious little to comment on in this years films, tho I enjoyed Guardians 2, Logan Lucky, Hitmans Bodyguard and especially, Wonder Woman, and a few more…I am looking forward to seeing Mother.

    I’ll freely admit to an obsession with politics.  This last US election has exposed the rotting underbelly of progressive liberalism.  It is important that the real news gets out, not the MSM propaganda everyone consumes like soma.

    It is sickening the amount of Hillary/Bernie bots out there…it is as if everyone is overcome with hatred.  It is no wonder there are morons who claim free speech is unacceptable and losers like Antifa are glorified.  Pathetic.

    So bot yourself, EvaSofie.  I’ve never even heard of you, newbee.
