Posted in: U.S. hits 70% vaccination rate -- a month late, amid a surge See in context

Congratulations to President Biden for his leadership in achieving this target.

He may have missed July 4th by a month but with most of the GOP and entire news channels like Fox and NEWSMAX and OAN bleating anti-vaccine propaganda 24/7 ... it's still a great achievement.

You know if you force the authorities to choose between national survival and your bizarre idea of your personal freedom, guess which one is going to win out? Your dangerous misbehavior is going to boomerang on you, a self-fulfilling prophecy of repression.

The U.S.-led diplomacy aimed at persuading North Korea to abandon its nuclear program in return for economic and political rewards hasn’t made progress since a second summit between Kim Jong Un and then-President Donald Trump broke down because of disputes over U.S.-led sanctions in early 2019.

Trump walked into enemy territory N. Korea and praised dictator Kim Jong un.

Trump saluted the top N. Korean General.

Posted in: Anger mounts as Biden, Congress allow eviction ban to expire See in context

How long is "long enough?" Most landlords aren't owners of huge apartment complexes. They are often your neighbors, people who have chosen to invest for their retirement in rental property instead of the stock market.

Good luck to those who are impacted by this. It’s gonna get real ugly out there.

My state stepped up. If you have applied for assistance you wont be evicted. Gives time for the backlog of applications to be processed and the 43 billion in available aid to be dispersed.

There is no need for an eviction ban anymore. It's not fair or equal for the property owner. If you cant pay your rent by now, you never will. Go to Government housing and not private.

The Israeli government has formed a special task force to pressure Ben & Jerry's ice cream and its parent company Unilever to reverse their decision to boycott Israeli settlements in the West Bank

Israel creates a "task force" to make sure that the illegal Israeli's settlers in the Occupied Territories get their favorite ice cream.

Because stealing land, bulldozing homes and oppressing people just aren't as much fun without Ben and Jerry's.
