We have one woman born during WWII who posts once in a blue moon, no blacks since y'all drove 'em out, and the rest are white conservative men circle-jerking about issues from their limited perspective. We have what, one Hispanic member who regularly posts?

Of the left, it's 6-7 white dudes. I guess one is gay so that's something.

Do we have any members under 30 anymore? Anything from Gen Z?

But tell me more about how this board doesn't lack perspective. :lol:

Hey! Give me a break! WWII, the Big One, was almost over when I was born. But I am quite young at heart and dislike with a passion everything leftist. Not leftist people but rather their, what are loosely called, ideas. But I'm getting there on the people to reciprocate their feelings towards me.

My Harley has a lot of Chinese bits and pieces.

Which is more unconscionable because of the high expense of them than their place of manufacture.

The Auschwitz Memorial has criticized a trend on TikTok in which young people portray themselves as victims of the Holocaust, saying the videos can be "hurtful and offensive."

The museum tweeted a statement on Wednesday responding to the videos shared on the Chinese-owned app, in which some users wear striped uniforms like those of concentration camp prisoners, or Star of David armbands that Jews were forced to use under the Nazis.

Want to place a wager on which city (NYC or Chicago) has more shootings over the Labor Day weekend???

A bar on Long Island NY is the place to do it

That's a great video. Great speech. :clap: :clap:

It'll fall on deaf ears though. We don't care about integrity, it's all about winning. If integrity was important, most of Congress would be working someplace else. Trump would still be in NY. Pelosi would be a footnote in history.
