The Democratic Party: Let it Burn — Armory of the Revolution

Originally posted on Social Justice Otaku: The DNC is crumbling. They’re on fire and they’re desperately putting water on it while pretending everything is fine. They put the blame on the voters, even though it’s a fact that their demise is their own doing. If you don’t listen to the people you’re suppose to represent,…

Inside the Failing Mission to Tame Donald Trump’s Tongue

by Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times

August 13, 2016

Donald J. Trump was in a state of shock: He had just fired his campaign manager and was watching the man discuss his dismissal at length on CNN. The rattled candidate’s advisers and family seized the moment for an intervention.

Please give the needy what they need. Solutions, not excuses and half-baked ideas.

RENO (Nevada) ! Oh the way they treat houseless people is disgusting… the ghetto on Record Street, created by the Reno City Council, is a joke!

Catholic Charities USA in Reno Nevada is NOT A CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION but a group collecting federal, state, local, and private donations to cover their “administrative costs” and serve those god-awful lunches at St. Vincent’s Dining Room (no relation to St. Vincent of the Society of St. Vincent…
