    Good stuff thank you

  4. Trump’s re-election signs are still up so we know where it’s ok to litter.

  5. Reminder: t’rump thinks there were airports that needed Washington’s protection during the Revolutionary War.

  6. Wonderful history of Washington’s generalship!

  7. I have a feeling Morning Joe would rather put this on his show than talking incredulously about the latest tweet.

  8. Dems need to win the 2 Senate seats in Georgia, which makes it 50/50, with a deciding vote for the VP ( Harris). Take back the Senate, ‘n McConnell’s done.

    • Dems are too Stupid to realize n0 state has certified the election

      @Vict0r Mas0n And you are too stupid to think they won’t.

      @Vict0r Mas0n In past elections, when the results were obvious, as they are now, the loser conceded, and it was over. There was no need to certify to accept the results. Just because Trump is too immature to act in a civil fashion, don’t imagine it isn’t over. Even if every recount going on came out in Trump’s favor, which they won’t, Biden will still have enough electoral votes to win.

      @Vict0r Mas0n trump needs to man up and concede. He can run again in 2024.

  9. When George fired someone he took them out back and fired them

    The GOP with their anti democratic posturing….has the potential to enslave many more millions than Washington

    That was so good…thank you! Intelligent news shows bring in intelligent reporting. I went from not being able to memorize dates to loving the study of history thanks to these authors…thank you both! I intend to study even more.

  12. The Natives taught Washington how to fight the British… give credit where credit is due…

      Yes, the six nations of the Iroquois.

      Funny how that sounds like the Vietnamese and what is happening in Afghanistan.

    • (FWIW) It’s no secret. That’s what I was taught in a Kentucky public school 50 years ago. We were told that the Redcoats fought in formation on designated battlefields while the Natives hid behind rocks and trees. At first the Brits considered this cowardly cheating, but they quickly decided it was the superior way to fight.

      @Greg Steele I learned the same, at the same time, in California. The French called these sorties and ambushes little warfare, guerilla warfare.

  13. So much energy, time and resources to strip people away from Health insurance, I genuinely, don’t get it !

    • @Constituent A Your reply sounds angry, hope not, because I thought we were a good conversation. So what exactly are you saying! That if someone goes into a hospital with a pain in their stomach that the hospital has the right to say if it is or isn’t an emergency? What do you think would happen to that hospital if that person walked out the door and drops dead in the parking lot, after being refused medical attention? Who’s to say who has the right to deny a person medical assistance, and determine if or if not someone can pay? I wouldn’t want to be that person. I think this is one of the reasons why progressives wanted universal insurance like many other countries have. who knows, maybe some day the US will be like that and get away from high deductibles and monthly insurance payments. As a single individual I tend to end up paying more than a person married, I even pay more in taxes yearly. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone paid their fair share? We’d might end up being a country with peace and prosperity for all. Have a good day. Stay safe and healthy.

    • @Jeweled Bird Yes, but only if it is monitor, regulated and tightly administrated.

    • @SMS I’m telling you that it’s a myth that EMTLA guarantees that indigent patients will be seen in emergency rooms. People falsely make that claim on the internet all the time. It has no basis in reality.

    • @Constituent A I’m going to look into this further. Oh wait, I think I know what you are thinking. Privately-owned hospitals may turn away patients in a non-emergency, but public hospitals cannot refuse care. Public hospitals, funded by taxpayer dollars, are held to a different standard than privately owned for-profit hospitals. This means that a public hospital is the best option for those without health insurance or the means to pay for care. Is that what you were thinking?

    • @SMS I mean that what you wrote above:

      “Public and private hospitals alike are prohibited by law from denying a patient care in an emergency.”

      is not a true statement, it is an oft-repeated internet myth.

      It does no good to try to back-pedal with a clairvoyant guess at “what [I’m] thinking”, or to offer unsolicited “advice” to the indigent about their “best options”.

    For the record I am just saying its a interesting history story , we should never forget our past , if not we are doom to repeat our mistakes again or something cliche like that lol

    I hope you had the decency to give credit to the natives who were far more intelligent than this overly snowflaked pretty boy.

    Actually, the law that the forefathers adopted came from the six nations of the Iroquois.
