its so fucking expensive now that you're pretty much on target with that.


50K! That’s one year in a state school?
Average public in-state tuition is around $11,000, public out-of-state averages $27,000. Private is about $38,000.

yes i know i was being facetious for fwiffers. and not to get into a debate but i'm not sure if that number includes room and board because there is no way that you can find a place, even on campus, and live for 12k a year all in.

"And, Miller added, 'President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.'"

Unless he got a new job, I thought the Republican party was led by the GOP chair and a combination of the House and Senate leaders.

"Mr Putin reserved some of his most stinging criticism for US condemnation of a crackdown on anti-government protests by Moscow's regional ally, Belarus. He hit back by suggesting the US Capitol rioters were being treated unfairly.

'They weren't just a crowd of robbers and rioters,' Mr Putin said of the Trump supporters who stormed Congress on 6 January and temporarily suspended a session to certify Mr Biden as the winner of last November's election. 'Those people had come with political demands.'"

Some were just tourists who happened to be in the area...

"When the forum moderator at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum suggested Mr Putin's comments about the Capitol riot could see him banned from US social media platforms, the Russian leader drew applause from the audience by retorting: 'I don't give a damn about being blocked somewhere.'"

He will hack you. Get ready for some ransomware.

"Some 500 suspects have been arrested for the riot, most of them charged with entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds. Many have been released pending trial, but some are being held in solitary confinement.

A member of Mr Biden's own Democratic party, Senator Elizabeth Warren, has said some of the defendants were being subjected to 'cruel' treatment."

Clearly Ms. Warren did not get the memo to toe the party line.

Hmmm... yes. Try storming the Duma or the Kremlin in Putin's Russia and see how your "political demands" are met.

Given that those who protest peacefully end up in Siberia, I'd hate to think of what would happen if you made "political demands" while armed.

"Keiko Fujimori, 46, is the leader of the right-win Popular Force party and a household name in Peru. As well as a former member of congress, she was the runner-up in the 2011 and 2016 presidential election run-offs.

She is also the daughter of jailed ex-president Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year sentence for corruption and human rights abuses. She has said that if she is elected, she will pardon her father."

That's one reason to be running for the top job.

"We're going to make it clear that the United States is back, and democracies of the world are standing together to tackle the toughest challenges and the issues that matter most to our future"

Biden - the saviour.
He's lost no time in stepping into the border issue in Ireland declaring ''I'm Irish...'' whilst siding with the EU which is against the interests of both Eire and N.I./UK.

Meanwhile, his son continues to be an utter embarrassment, well he would be if the MSM would report on him:

Interestingly, CNN is finally reporting on the Veep's flippant remarks on never being to the border or to Europe. Calls it tone deaf.

Does this chick have some impediment that make her say stupid things and then laugh nervously and inauthentically?

And how many generations removed is he from the original Irish descendants?

I rather think after the first or second generation you're practically assimilated.

I have some Irish blood in me too, from a lad who came over at age 14 at the height of the famine. He started one of my grandmother's family lines in Liverpool as a docker no less. So I get the whole Irish connection, myth and romance of ancestry. It works for me, so I don't hold that against him. But his administration is completely wrong here and it's also against the interest of Eire. The EU doesn't give a fig about the situation in Ireland, only how they can use it to punish the Brits.

“Anti anti-racism”

rhere must be a way to simplify that double negative ….. hmmmm

Critical Race Theory is evil and needs to be expelled from the academy, university and business place.

It will lead to a hyper-racialised and tense racial relations that will turn very nasty indeed, it's already causing trouble in English universities and this is where it is leading, pure racism and hate masquerading as academic and medical science:


We've been here before in the 1930s.

“The Americans see Saturday's session at the G7 as being about challenging the rise of Chinese influence around the world. Beijing's Belt-and-Road initiative, which has seen billions of dollars poured into developing countries, must be countered by the Western democracies.

Senior administration officials want to prove that Western values can prevail. They argue that Chinese investment has come with too high a price tag; that the forced labour of the Uyghur minority in Xinjiang is morally egregious, and economically unacceptable as it prevents fair competition.

Global supply chains, Joe Biden will insist, must be free of this kind of labour. US officials say this is not just about confronting China, but about presenting a positive alternative for the world.”

President Biden. Defender of western values.
