  1. BP profits soared to an 8-year high of about $13 billion. Shell's earnings skyrocketed to $19.3 billion. Chevron raked in $15.6 billion. Exxon Mobil reported $23 billion in profits. They can afford to lower prices, but they'd rather exploit global crises for profit.
  2. Shutdown the pipeline? The Keystone pipeline wont be operational until 2030. And you would have to be willing to pay even more for gas if Russian oil is cut off. Large gas companies are operating 20% under full capacity for greed. The president doesn't control the oil companies.
  3. Trump handed Syria over to the Russians. He withheld military aid to Ukraine unless they fabricated political dirt on Biden. The Javelin missiles we did provide were with the rider that they couldn't go within 10 miles of a Russian tank. In his first days in office, Trump called for the easing of sanctions against Russia after his takeover of Crimea. Never a single word about that on the campaign trail. Not a single word and he pulls this in his first 10 days. Things would have gone differently with Trump in the Whitehouse alright, better for Russia and worse for the sovereign democratic country of Ukraine. Understand Putin wants the destruction of the West. That is his endgame. Anyone attacking our president, sowing discord for political gain is helping Putin and Russia. As Anti- American as anything I have ever seen.

  5. Posted 12 hours ago Quote 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21 The Passion Translation: Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit. And don’t be one who scorns prophecies, but be faithful to examine them by putting them to the test, and afterward hold tightly to what has proven to be right.

  6. Read this the other day... I Hated Pregnancy Pregnancy hated me back. I never once felt beautiful during the entire thing, and the remnants of the damage to my body are still there. Even though I ate sensibly, I gained so much weight that I looked obese. I held water like crazy. Couldn't see my knees or ankles. When I asked my doc for help, he actually told me that I was obese and it had nothing to do with my pregnancy. He didn't seem to notice that I weighed 105 pounds before getting pregnant, but he was pretty shocked when I lost 45 pounds after delivery. Suddenly my knees and ankles were visible, while I was still in the hospital, and he agreed that I was not obese. We lived so far out in the sticks that we didn't have the option of changing docs. I had preeclampsia and cephalopelvic disproportion with the first one that damn near killed us both. They did a c-section, but had trouble getting my blood pressure down enough to make surgery safe. Then they had trouble getting the baby to breathe. I was fine during my appointment at 4:30pm, but by 10:00pm, I was in trouble. They were so busy that night that no one even informed my husband of our condition until 6:00am, by which time he was sure we had both died. The baby was born at around 2:00am, so I don't even know what happened between then and 6:00am. I do know that when I woke up, I felt like my guts had been torn out. Then they wanted me to turn over, which was excruciating. The doc for the second pregnancy took more precautions and put me on bed rest almost from the beginning. I was fortunate that I could stay home and it didn't impact us financially. How much different it is for women who cannot take that much time off work! I still gained a lot of weight, but not as much, and they took the baby, another c-section, early to avoid complications. Then he told me that if I got pregnant again, it would kill me. Yet, I wanted my kids and would do it again. I wouldn't do it a third time and I surely wouldn't do it if the pregnancy was the result of rape or incest. These rightwing blowhards, in any case, would have me leave my children motherless rather than have me exercise my choice. How is that pro-life? Who the **** do these people think they are to treat pregnancy like a few months of inconvenience and discomfort? I've said this before and will say it again: Childbirth is inherently dangerous. You don't know ahead of time who will do well and who will not. Plenty of otherwise healthy women die of eclampsia after apparent safe deliveries. I had a mother-in-law who popped out babies at home and went for tea afterwards. We are not all so fortunate. For me, sentencing women to 9 months or more of what can truly be hell for some, putting their lives at risk, and scarring their bodies and psyches for no good reason, is inhumane. Add that to the anguish of whether to keep the baby or put it up for adoption, worries about taking care of it financially, and all the other burdens that Republicans are happy to tell them to "pull themselves up by the bootstraps" in order to survive. As we all know, the baby is no longer of political use once it is born, so it's ok to deny food, shelter, and healthcare at that point. And the "deadbeat" moms who had no choice need to "get educated and find a better job." My favorite one is that they need to "keep their legs closed." SMDH I am way past the age where it affects me. My daughters are nearing that age. Yet, I am worried and scared to death about the future of our daughters who will not be able to make decisions about their own bodies. That's all I have to say. Thanks for listening.
  7. For the handling of food to stop the spread of disease.
  8. The COVID virus has more reproductive rights that a woman in Texas.
  9. If Biden was all they had it was all they needed. That's right Party of Personal Responsibility. Lay the blame everywhere other than Bunker Boy. It was his to lose and he still blew it.
  10. To think he is all that was needed to kick that lying malignant narcissist to the curb.
  12. Sydney Powell when she said no reasonable person would believe the accusations she made about corrupted voting machines. Ha! You people saying "Get over it" when Trump was elected in 2016 are sure having a hard time getting over it. And Wolf protecting a free and fair election from the likesof that **** show in Arizona is doing the will of the people.
  13. GOP investigation finds no Michigan vote fraud, deems many claims ‘ludicrous’ | Bridge Michigan
  14. If they cant pay a living wage, they shouldn't be in business.
  15. They fail to mention a few things in the article. Under a Republican governor Arizona's election was already audited. It was recounted. It had court challenges that failed. No one is saying where the money is coming from to finance this. Dark money. And of all the news organizations in this country only one is allowed in to report the activities. OAN freaking N.
  16. A lot of fan boys in the Jeep Wrangler market making it a tough nut to crack. I wish them luck.
  17. Hide and watch Joe Biden bring this country back from the abyss.
  18. Old, senile, two failed presidential runs and he still kicks that lying choke artist to the curb.
  19. The Department of Homeland Security has been protecting our borders since it was established in 2003. Border protection is one of their responsibilities. And the military wouldn't need to protect the Capital would it if the choke artist would just own up to reality.
