Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s recent comments about the Holocaust have a whole lot of people up in arms. The truth is that she is more about Palestine than anything else, but oddly enough many Muslims have accused her of “not being Muslim enough.”
In any case, her comments were weird and oddly phrased, and yes, they were offensive. Given the opportunity to clarify what she meant, she simply repeated them again and then proclaimed that anybody who disagrees with her is a 4th grad racist.
Which, in my mind, is the bigger offense. The idea that a member of Congress doesn’t understand that calling people who disagree with you names is offensive makes me sad. And worried about what happens next…
People are always singing the praises of term limits to Dave. So let’s ask a question. What does the following sentence mean: “No person elected elected as either Mayor or Councilmember shall be eligible to serve, or serve, as either Mayor or Councilmember for more than two terms.”
Doe it mean (choose one):
(a) a person can serve one term as Mayor and one term as a Councilmember?
(b) A person can serve two terms as either a Mayor or a Councilmember only?
(c) That a person may serve two terms as Mayor and two terms as a Councilmember?
(d) That taxpayers in a bankrupt city will spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars to let lawyers and Judges figure out what it means?
Dr. Ben Carson said last week that if Jews had been armed, the Nazi’s would never have been able to do what they did. Do you agree or disagree? Dave, for the record, disagrees, and he’ll explain why.
The 49ers did a better job on Sunday, and the reason they did better is exactly what Dave has been saying for weeks. They didn’t win, but they had a chance.
A USAF Veteran who served in Kuwait, is arrested after she intervenes in a Valdosta State protest in which students were walking upon a US Flag. Her actions have drawn praise from Veterans and flag supporters. But there is one really big question that has to be asked…
Europe is facing a wave of illegal immigration that has gone barely noticed in the United States. So far 2015 has been a deadly year for illegal immigrants, with more than 1500 peope losing their lives since January attempting to enter Europe. This past week, two incidents have brought renewed attention to the problem. A ship capsized and sank, killing 700, while on a smaller boat, members of the PLRI threw Christians overboard.
A University of California Berkeley Scientist is now saying that science supports what many of us have believed for a long time – that California is actually a desert that had a really wet 150 years.
The Director of the FBI made a verbal slip when he stated that Poland had helped Nazi Germany commit the Holocaust. The American Ambassador in Warsaw was summoned to discuss the Directors Comments. And while the Director was wrong about Poland and Hungary, the rest of his remarks were very relevant. On this day in 1945, the Children of Neuengamme were taken to Bullenhauser Damm, and there they became some of the last victims of the “Final Solution.”
