    Amanda Gorman Will Be the Youngest Inaugural Poet in U.S. History

    The 22-year-old hopes to inspire a divided country without "glossing over" the horror of the last four years.


    Hey Obtuse one, do you think that is all it will take to bring the country together??

    And do you think over 72 plus million American citizens are all racists including Black Brown, and Yellow, White that did vote for the other guy??

    And i don't think those American Citizens thought the last 4 years was a horror for them.....

    Maybe they are scared for the next 4 years!!! Do you think the other side cares about them??

    Explain how you can be serious with people that prefer to live in a socialists country?? And yet when i asked them why they don't move to one they think is so successful , i never seem to get an answer back , I would think like America there should be lots of job opportunities there, and really big caravans of people coming from miles trying to get into them

    I should say congratulations on your new President buddy, but i don't want you to get angry at me
    The point isn't whether or not to live in a Socialist country, it's to do away with our Founding and make America Socialist.

    The big take-down, you see...

    Not an American here, but i have property there :-D so i got at least SOME skin in the game. Now, from an outside perspective i cannot understand how anyone sane votes for Trump albeit my US friends DO have good arguments (tax cut, bringing back jobs etc.). Personally i'd like a "socialist" country and i am living in one. Having affordable health care, state issued unemployment and sick leave, knowing how much my pension is etc. I think, most americans confuse socialist with communist. I am glad that i can go to a doctor if i have an issue and not take on another mortgage if i need my wisdom teeth removed. I am also glad, that noone is gambling in the stock market with my pension. It is guaranteed by the state and i don't need to work until i am dropping dead just because i couldn't pay anything into my 401K. And i don't understand why Americans are so against those things. But i can enjoy both sides :-) Visit the US *and* having peace of mind that i won't end up on the stret just because i couldn't afford my medical bills.

    Weird because such as they are, my politics consist entirely of wanting everyone to suffer unnecessarily as much as possible. It that means that people like Betsy DeVos can only have one yacht instead of ten then that's a sacrifice that I'm willing to make for her.

    Then again America was once a colony of England and a monarchy in which slavery was allowed.So the whole this is how we stand, this is how we shall fall thing is kind of bullshit. Also America isn't going to become socialist. The "ideal" of socialism has never been realized. The closest anyone's ever come is ironically with our friend shay's Israel with their early kibbutz's. There are only four countries in the World currently listed as purely socialist and even those are dictatorships, not socialist. Don't confuse democratic socialism with Marxist socialism.

    Interesting so you think the Left wing Shitbags are looking to form a Democratic socialists society

    Bernie Sanders spewed the Russia construct , the younger Left wing Shitbags want more power and control even then him LOL!!!!..

    Even using your obtuse excuses, can you give an example of a successful socialists society that has approx 331.42 million in population??

    And the majority of the population isn't suffering vs a small minority?? I can give you tons of those!!!

    And do you think early Kibbutz's ran as a socialists society?? how about Amish or Mennonites?? Should we scrap technology and the way of living and go back to there thinking and structures?? Do you think Israel's main population lives on Kibutz's?? or is it a Democratic society, with higher and more advanced technologies than Canada and the US?? and successful ...How about naming another success story in the Middle East??

    Just in case some people didn't see this in the places they go to see truthful news reported

    Portland rioters damage ICE building; police declare 'unlawful assembly'
    The so-called J20 protest was a demonstration against Biden and law enforcement


    Well they ain't no White Supremacist out there doing this?? What is going on here!!!!!


    Why is this happening??

    Tale of two briefings: Jen Psaki treated much differently by press than Sean Spicer
    Biden press secretary faces mostly friendly questions from mainstream press


    Let's see if this changes, what do you think the chances are???


    This is how it starts...

    Buttigieg floats gas tax hike despite concern about regressive impact
    Biden transportation secretary nominee appeared open to first gas tax hike in nearly 30 years


    Ya this makes sense....

    Buttigieg defends Biden killing Keystone XL pipeline amid criticism from unions
    Buttigieg acknowledges Keystone workers may need to get 'different' union jobs


    Where are these jobs coming from the sky!!!!!

    Repeating myself. No problem with arresting anyone who broke the law. It's been reported by CNN if that's what you mean by truthful news. I can tell there weren't any white supremacists by the police response.

    Sean was treated fairly. The difference was that he was instructed to lie and reporters might have taken issue with that.

    Why is it OK for private companies to set prices that allow them the ability to function properly by if the government tries to raise taxes to allow it to do it's job better or pay down the deficit then suddenly some people need to inserect?

    Keystone is very problematic. Beyond environmental risk and doing nothing for US energy security, it's being pushed by the people who stand to profit in the face of there being better options to it.
    As for jobs. Sustained jobs are reported to be less than 40 after construction ends. Short term jobs supposedly don't really help the economy much if at all.

    Why are they shitbags? You have defended worse people I believe. At the very least you refrained from calling them "shitbags".

    We would likely see an admix of the two, if things followed to any sort of conclusion.

    We have had too much of what ails us to easily undo what is being done.

    I should have made clear, and I do hereby, inform you I'm not speaking in terms of lists, as I view my America as a singular affair - no matter what others think.

    I hate to be blunt, but then, no, I don't.

    None of that is to say we're going off-course in conversation.

    After all, we are gentlemen...but may be not.
