    Don’t even know where to start with this……..just when you think folks can not get more stupid…..now we find it has turned into an Olympic event.


  3. Well, when, in recent memory, has the Republican Party NOT placed partisanship over people???

  5. Why people support Trump and the new GOP? “They hate the same people I hate”

      What are you so afraid of that you need to hate someone just because they are different than you? Hate is always about fear.

    Wasn’t the GOP known for the concept of “stay out of our bedrooms?”

    • Their shrinking electorate hates everybody who isnt like them. Thats why.

      Like Matt Gaetz, they want us to stay out of their bedrooms, while they attack children, in their Bedrooms…….but in their defense….they are not Human!

  7. The USA is still a scary and unfair country with lots of unaddressed deep rooted problems. And it got worse in the past 10 years.

      What other countries allow transgenders in sports besides the usa? I’v read stats from cnn listing 20 countries ahead of the US over transgender rights,but it didnt specify any of it relating to a trans girl in boy sports or vic versa.

    More than ever before.

  9. The American system is designed to serve the people in power. It is designed to breed apathy among the working class, while cementing the rule of a few people at the very top.

      Ditto! One of the most evil and corrupt systems on the Planet all the while telling the people what a Great country America is….that is why they need to keep the people ignorant, so they won’t find out that the Majority of the people on Planet Earth have many more freedoms than Americans and many more privileges, America has a similar system as England had….in the Middle ages!!

    • how

    • @Ben Bascom America has a class system, the poor(more people living in cardboard boxes or their car than ALL other western Democracies on earth combined)
      The middle class who pay the vast majority of taxes and the extremely wealthy who get a free ride…….and the rest of America are too bloody ignorant of the rest of the world that they really believe that America is a great country….America is the richest country that has ever existed….but the top 1% own more than the other 99%
      America is the most powerful(more Nuclear arms than the next 25 countries combined(most of whom are allies)
      Powerful and rich does not equal great for the people…..England was rich in the middle ages….but the people were still starving, by what criteria do you call America a “great country” certainly not by living standards of the people at the bottom of the food chain, which is what a great country should be, same as a Great Parent cares for a sick child more than a healthy child until they are both healthy…..it ain’t rocket science!

  10. Distraction ….

  11. Trolling?

  12. Lady, where have you been for the last 12 years?

    My times have not changed at all – Once upon a time the Catholic Church required popes to be tested to see if they were males. The candidate would sit in a chair with a big hole in it, and then the church would put its hands underneath to feel around for what they were looking for – no woman popes were allowed –

  17. Protect our girls and women!!! Stop stomping all over everybody else’s rights!!!

  18. Go to jail plz. Normal ppl see this for what it is
