      @Sun Tzu you are no Sun Tzu. You have abandoned objective Reality. P.S. I heard a rumor that babies are delivered by storks. Rumors do not make facts. Your stupidity is not a virtue.

  3. Perdue’s moral compass so broken that he is shocked Trump taped, not at Trump’s actions !

    To be honest, I’m a Progressive and wasn’t really all that into Warnock but Loefflers ads attacking him actually made me like him more, lol.. Oh no, he wants $15 minimum wage.. Umm, how is that an attack? He said Palestinians lives matter! Umm again, how is him saying that a bad thing?? He said you cannot serve God and the military.. Umm that’s what Jesus said at the sermon on the mount so how is that an attack on him? 🤣🤣 She’s pathetic

    • @JW Townes go ahead and please let’s get this over , we need to get to the bottom of this mess and see where the chips fall.

      @stephen barter You are right and wrong. Prices have been climbing while selection is declining. We have had $15 for several years. Some might have gone up a bit, but they were climbing for years anyway. It increases the money some people have to spend, they buy more, or better goods. If you don’t have any disposable income all business will suffer. It may sound like a lot to some people but if you are the one with more money in your pocket and gives them the option of spending on things like gyms and hair dressers. That is supporting local business.

    Well isn’t that rich coming from white supremist running so she can rip off Georgians like she did her Enron like scam in 2006 and 2007 for 18 million by her hedge fund Amaranth

  6. Rev, Warnock and Ossoff all the way.

  7. I wished I lived in Georgia so I could vote for the good reverend

    • You don’t have to live there to vote Democrat!!

      @Don Waters True, you can vote democrat in every state in the Union. But, only if you can prevent Republican gerrymandering, destruction of the postal service, and the removal of voting locations.

    • T. R. Campbell | January 4, 2021 at 7:34 PM | Reply

      @Don Waters You do have to be a resident of the state and comply with the state residency guidelines.

    • @JW Townes yes I know homeless like to be near churches to receive help but it doesn’t look like he is help them at all.

      @T. R. Campbell if you are talking about the tape where Warnock supposedly ran over her foot, it was shown not to have actually happened and was dropped.

    One of the best way to fire up Black voters is to attack the Black church. Thanks Racist Barbie!

  11. In 1776, the British considered these people pushing independence in the American Colonies were considered radical.

  12. Let’s all send a PayPal request to Loeffler for a $2000 stimulus check.

    • @T. R. Campbell Shut up old man. Reagan has been dead for decades and you know nothing about today’s world. Tell me, old wise one, how much does it take to train and test for a CDL?

    • T. R. Campbell | January 4, 2021 at 4:10 PM | Reply

      @Rich Sackett So, you don’t think you’re intelligent enough to drive an over the road truck? I can’t believe that a person with at least average intelligence will talk to themselves out of a good paying job and an opportunity to see a lot of the country. A CDL is not rocket science.
      Beside the fact, you are making assumptions that are incorrect. I am a female and I’ve been a female all my life and I don’t let that stand in my way nor do I take advice from people who have no idea what they are talking about. I met Ronald Reagan, both when he was an actor and then as he was president. I also met LBJ, Jimmy Carter and Joe Biden several times in DC when he was senator. Have you met any presidents? I would venture to say you have done probably very little if you are not even willing to attempt to obtain a CDL.

    • @T. R. Campbell My bad, old woman. I drove OTR for five years. You didn’t answer my question.

    • T. R. Campbell | January 4, 2021 at 4:55 PM | Reply

      @Rich Sackett I have no idea but I would guess in the $3000 range to get a Class A. I believe some companies so desperate for drivers a day provide training.


      Wow white man crying about a system he created and now has to pay

      Feel ya privilege sliding don’t ya?

      Your kind and people are dead it’s just a matter of time

  13. Get this man on every station in the country today! He is RIGHT! He is RIGHTEOUS! and he is very well-spoken and effective in explaining the TRUTH!

  14. So is the Government going to start issuing passports again, some of us want to leave?

  15. We now see what the Republican party really stands for: supporting sedition and an attempt to steal an election by a man without a conscience who wants to force himself and his family of crooks upon the American people against their will.

  16. Fun Facts: Kelly and Perdue became more wealthy with covid pandemic on trading stocks. It’s a FEDERAL CRIME. But yet are allowed to run 4 office. Oh wait Trump got away with that. So according 2 reScambliCons. It’s O.K. to be a Criminal Thug Felon 2 run 4 office. Or should I say a MOB BOSS. No joke just facts. Whether u like it or not.

  17. God bless Rev. Warnock.

  18. Democrats in Georgia, go vote!
    Republicans, stay home and listen to Trump’s greatest holiday hits. If you can find it the first time, look for it until Wednesday morning. 👍

  19. Guess what: JESUS WAS ALSO RADICAL!!!!!!!! Tell that to Loeffler.
