Razor's Achievements

  1. Well, I'm proud of the Canadians. Their reputation, unlike the Russians, is to play by the rules. You should stick with the subject instead of throwing juvenile insults around. It makes you look sophomoric.
  2. For the 15 boxes of documents — some classified and marked “top secret” — the long journey from former president Donald Trump’s gilded Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Fla., to a secure facility in the Washington area began last summer, when the National Archives and Records Administration reached out to Trump’s team to alert them that some high-profile documents from his presidency appeared to be missing. But it was not until the end of the year that the boxes were finally readied for collection, according to two people familiar with the logistics, one of whom described the ordeal as “a bit of a process.” At one point, Archives officials threatened that, if Trump’s team did not voluntarily produce the materials, they would send a letter to Congress or the Justice Department revealing the lack of cooperation, according to a third person familiar with the situation. The tale of these 15 boxes — and the material contained within — underscores how defiantly and indiscriminately Trump violated the records law, which requires that the White House preserve all written communication related to a president’s official duties and then turn it over to the National Archives. Instead, starting in his presidency and continuing into his post-presidency, documents both classified and mundane — as well as official gifts, which are governed by similarly stringent rules — were treated with the same disregard and enveloped in the same chaos that characterized his term in office. A trucking administrator at Bennett, a Georgia transportation firm that handles a lot of government contracts, said that under traditional circumstances, shipment of these sorts of materials would be handled through a secure transfer — including GPS tracking of the vehicle and a team trained to handle sensitive information. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/02/12/trump-15-boxes/?utm_campaign=wp_post_most&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&wpisrc=nl_most&carta-url=https%3A%2F%2Fs2.washingtonpost.com%2Fcar-ln-tr%2F36069ce%2F6207f0c99d2fda34e78c0d69%2F59876e1cae7e8a681613bd00%2F8%2F70%2F6207f0c99d2fda34e78c0d69
  3. Oh, I am sure the masks were quite good. In face, I bet the Chinese made both teams use their, the Chinese, approved masks. Are you sad the Russians lost. Aren't you proud of the Canadian women?
  4. Perhaps the Russians need better masks and better training. The Canadians seemed to do well while wearing the masks. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Did you notice that Russians played without masks much of the game and still were blown out? The Canadian women wore masks the entire game.
  5. Unintended consequences. Oh, I think it is quite a positive statement about the Canadian women. I cannot imagine playing ice hockey wearing a mask, especially at that level of play. Those are touch ladies.
  6. Not all Republican supporters are racist. I never said that. But Nixon's Southern Policy followed a racist policy and many racists bought into it in their rejection of the civil rights act of1964. Johnson was only partially right when he said after the passage of the civil rights act, "We have lost the South for a generation." Actually the South was lost for several generations. Actually many Republicans voted for the civil rights act. They current GOP legislators would never vote for such a bill now.
  7. The GOP is considered racist because Nixon's Southern Policy turned the GOP into a racist party. Read your modern history.
  8. What is their definition of a vaccine? What, if not a vaccine, do they call what is currently called a vaccine? Show me a website source for this term.
  9. Nixon knew it what he was doing. Do you remember Lee Atwater's infamous statement? Nixon's Southern Policy: In American politics, the Southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy#:~:text=In American politics%2C the Southern,to racism against African Americans. The South previously to the passage of the Civil Rightrs Bill was the Solid South for the Democrats. With the passage of the Civil Rights Bill the Republicans saw a chance to capture the South through racism, playing on the fears of we Southern white folk. In his 1991 book, One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream, New York Times columnist Tom Wicker captures the political two-step that Nixon danced as he sought to govern and to carry out a strategy to turn the South into a Republican-dominated region as it had been a “solid Democratic South’’ for much of the twentieth century. Wicker gave Nixon credit for “a spectacular advance in desegregation’’ in 1970. “Perhaps the most significant achievement of his administration’s domestic actions,” Wicker wrote, came as “the Nixon administration had appeared in retreat from desegregation, while actively courting the white vote.” Indeed, in his 1968 campaign and afterward, Nixon used coded language, political symbolism and court interventions as signals to southern white voters. In the aftermath of city riots in 1967 and 1968, as well as Vietnam War protests, Nixon said he was for “law and order.’’ His administration went to court to slow down school desegregation. Nixon tried to install two so-called strict-constructionist conservatives, Clement F. Haynesworth Jr. of South Carolina and G. Harrold Carswell of Florida, on the Supreme Court, but the Senate turned down both nominees. By his political calculation to capitalize on the racial and cultural divisions of his day, Nixon opened the gate to the political polarization of the United States in 2018. While President Donald Trump hardly emulates the furtive and nuanced Nixon, there is a direct line that runs from the Nixonian “southern strategy’’ to the Trump presidency. https://www.southerncultures.org/article/southern-strategy-from-nixon-to-trump/ This lays out why I, a Southerner, had to leave the Republican Party.
  10. I was a Republican until Nixon adopted his Southern Policy turning the GOP into a racist party.
  11. So you say it is not a vaccine. Then what do you call it?
  12. Blaming the government for everything is simply a way of avoid personal responsibility. One result is giving power to those you are blaming.
  13. LOL. If you say so. However, the vaccinated and unvaccinated are statistics.
  14. Vaccine is not a statistic. It is a noun that means: a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease. "every year the flu vaccine is modified to deal with new strains of the virus"
