And since most phones today are basically a computer, it could cancel out the need for one.

Driving a car? Okay I can see your point on that one, somewhat. For some families a car too is more necessity than it is luxury and will sacrifice other necessities to maintain one. Again for reasons like accessibility to and from work, looking for work, caring for sick family members etc. Or if necessary, to live in.

Color TV's? Are we talking state of the art latest technology largest TV's on the shelf or one that can be picked up at the corner thrift store for mere dollars in comparison?

You seem to want poor people to be standing on a street corner holding out a tin can with absolutely nothing in their possession. You have a cell phone? You're not poor! You have a TV? You're not poor! You have a car? You're not poor! It's not that simple.


I technically have a cell phone, but it's wireless use only with free 911 calls if needed. I have a land line phone for all other things.

I have a computer, going on ten years old roughly, and the internet connection is high speed which is the 'lowest' available connection you can get for a computer.

I have no TV.


I have a second hand car.


I have a house - because a house is only somewhat cheaper than rent in this town.


Despite a decent - for now - job, I wouldn't consider myself middle class, rather high end working poor.

Serryah is very modest. This is her house:



She comes on the forum to "slum" with us common folk.

Cliffy lives in the basement. She forces him to post irrelevant memes as a punishment, when he forgets to do his household chores.

"But if we're not even willing to have that discussion, we shouldn't be forcing people to risk their lives."

Meaning in the event of war.

So , there is no war with Iran . Simple virtue signalling .

He is on a path of revenge filled wrath.......and it can go anywhere. He now believes he can do as he wishes and no one can stop him........and should not criticize him. He is dangerous..........as he is quite prepared to keep pushing the legal, ethical and political boundaries as far as he can .........and he has no concern about any consequences,

he ineffective cult of Trump reps literally unleashed even more bad behavior from Trump. Vendetta Mafia style.

Interesting to note.....Putin is trying to get himself to stay in power indefinitely .............. That is what Trump would love........and he would only get worse.He would aim for absolute power.

The red hats are coming ,the red hats are coming .

Good , and you have the necessities . You do after all live in New Brunswick , no offence , but that isn’t the hotbed of economic activity .

Of course he will have to present a case for "war" before Congress if he feels we should go to "war" against Iran. That is not something new and unique as Congress is the only body of the US Govt that can declare war against another country. After Pearl Harbor, FDR went before Congress and asked for a war against Japan and Congress declared war.


However, Trump will not have to go before Congress to take military action against Iran. Which is no different than any other President's military actions against other countries.

The story confirms EXACTLY what Trump said!

In America today, 140 million people are poor or low wealth. While three individuals own as much wealth as all of them put together, the real cost of living has soared as wages have stagnated. Since the 1970s, the number of people who are paying more than a third of their monthly income in rent has doubled, and there is not a single county in the nation where a person working full-time at minimum wage can afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment. Sixty per cent of African Americans are poor or low-income, as are 64% of Hispanics, but the largest single racial group among America’s poor and low-income – 66 million Americans – are white.

Racist shit.

AG Barr opens inquiry into FBI interview that led to Michael Flynn charges

Attorney General William Barr has asked the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri to look into how the FBI conducted the interview with Michael Flynn that led to charges that he lied about his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States while he was serving as President Donald Trump��s national security adviser, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.

Flynn pleaded guilty to giving false statements to the FBI during that interview, but recently asked to withdraw that plea, further delaying his sentencing.

Poor people in many cases make sacrifices to have have necessities, like a phone, which is my point.

The article states:

“For too long, countless American children have been trapped in failing government schools,” Trump said.

“To rescue these students,” he said, 18 states had created scholarship programs — ”so popular that tens of thousands of students remain on a waiting list."

“One of those students is Janiyah Davis , a fourth grader from Philadelphia,” Trump said. “Janiyah’s mom, Stephanie, is a single parent. She would do anything to give her daughter a better future.”

Which is untrue. She was not in a failing Government school, she was in a sought after charter school. Even her mother was confused as to why they were invited to the SOTU.

Trump pushed the CIA to find and kill Osama bin Laden's son over higher priority targets

President Donald Trump was more interested in Osama bin Laden��s youngest son, Hamza bin Laden, than other more senior and influential terror figures, two people familiar with his CIA briefings told NBC News.

��He would say, ��I��ve never heard of any of these people. What about Hamza bin Laden?���� one former official said.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/nat...l_nbn_20200216

Is this how he makes decisions on who to KILL??? It must be very empowering to "legally" KILL others.
