    I'm actually very curious who was asking questions in that Ron Ramsey interview. I'm so used to hearing that BS from politicians, but whoever that was actively called the statements out immediately. I'd like to know who is doing the good work even when the issue doesn't have a lot of attention like this. Update since I decided to visit the site listed: "It is with great disappointment that I must inform our readers that TNReport.com won’t be maintaining news gathering operations this legislative session.". So yeah, I guess go watch Last Week Tonight on Journalism. Still interested on who exactly that was though if anyone knows.

    hi john oliver. I really enjoyed the debt episode. and i understood all the angels you took. from a western point who dont think twice on how they secure accommodation its a no brainer, you hit it bulls eye. i been living in western countries for most of my life but have NO or both liberal and or conservative bones in me since I am a Muslim. It doesnt matter who holds the debt, china, japan, liberals or conservatives, they share one commonality which forms a stronger bond for them than any of these labels, they are rich. Debt which i can be 100% sure in most cases means interest i.e increasing overtime is the reason for recesions, they form bubbles that burst and guess who they hurt exclusively the poor. this is not me, some muslim on the interent, this is finincial scholars even though silenced still publish their work on thos cancer im gace of being cancelled by mr big coorape submissive to mr big bank look at the gamestop scenario, when non rich targeted hedge funds the betting companies went all out to stop legal bets. rich getting richer poor getting poorer. In islam a loan is interest free, profits for all cant exceed 30% and taxes are collected on no used items assets monetary or not. if the world did that i assure you there will be no poor to rob. cos thats wat this interest game is. people running out of good spirits and hence ability to work for society, so they use mathmetics to make money. thats not a service, only right way to make money of science and maths is by doing research and or teaching people so it can enhance other services. would love it if you made an episode on interest and how its riuning society from the core. i seen u do some out of it episodes, thinking hes gonna get detsined after this, but will you go the extra mile, will you cut to the heart of the cartel or will those veins/emotions/stakes run to close to cut. do it, i dare you

    Last week I almost forgot to put my trash out and ran to give it to the trash man. I told him he was lucky that he had a job because my neighbors had losts theirs . He just said to me “ This job I just started a month ago and you would be surprised at what I really do . I am not going to wait for unemployment and see my family go hungry”. Unemployment is just a blanket for lazyness.

    The drug testing requirement is even stupider when you add the cost of doing those tests. You don't catch _nearly_ enough abusers to cover the costs of the tests alone. So it's cheaper in the net to just pay out to a few abusers. This is the case to some degree for _any_ restrictive measure; every measure has an actual balance. Republicans only talk about one column, Democrats only talk about the other column, so objective appraisals of where the net falls are few and far between. It's been studied for drug testing specifically, and the answer is "don't do drug testing". If anyone can expand on this with other measures, I would love to hear it.

    I know this is a low bar, but I think Kentuk's gov deserves some sort of crefit. Cause he stood there, took responsibility, did not obfuscate the facts and apologized. Now, I know telling the truth upfront like this is a low bar to set, except for the fact it's not! Cause the bar is set by what people do, not by what people think other people should do. Most everyone will say you should be honest and they are honest. But, that is a lie right there. And the fact is that this is rare in life, little less politics. All I'm saying is that I'm all in on shitting on those who stand up and lie to use. But that means that I, and so should you be all in on acknowledging when people stand up and speak the truth and take responsibility. We can still shit on his fuck up. But a man/woman should not be judged by their mistakes, rather how they react to those mistakes is what is important. And yes, I stand by my statment cause I alreadty know someone is going to challenge me. But before you do, let me interject my reaply to what I know you're gonna challenge; I said don't judge by peoples mistakes, judge their actions. A mistake is a keyword, meaning if someone is doing an action over and over, thats no longer a mistake. rather its a choice and therefore their actions need to be judge cause its not a mistake. murder, robbing people, domestic abuse. those are not a fucking mistake. So common sense rule applies here. The governor made a mistake. he thought a person lied and said some shit, therefore. but he actually believed it was a lie. so, that is a mistake and therefore we should judge his reactions which was to take responsibility and apologize on national TV. I stick by my statement.

    Sad thing is, there is a reason Twitter has a "Nazi problem" and that is they haven't yet found a way for a computer algorithm to tell the difference between Nazi tweets and many Republican tweets, so they have to have actual humans make that determination, which of course will have that individual's bias... Facebook is even worse for pretty much the same reason and more. You can get a suspension for calling someone a silly goose, or for referring to comedian Trae Crowder by his chosen nickname (I am not kidding, I got a 3 day FB suspension for sharing a Trae Crowder video because it was deemed "hate speech" due to his nickname and yes it has me so paranoid I don't even want to type his nickname here.)

    The oppression in this country is real.... My family being low income is suffering from a great deal of oppression from the system in place that governs our people.... Laws are made against the poor to keep families of color oppressed and in some cases like ours it flows over to all of the poor not only those of color. As a family we feel the pain our country is suffering through as so much of our case relates. We are currently guilty until proven innocent. Being denied justice or safety because we aren't rich enough to afford a lawyer... By the way modest means... a program to help people retain a lawyer (and in this case we didnt even start any of the court proceedings) Can only lower the retainer to $1,500. (There is even a case we overheard the lawyer and judge discuss by name where a person suffering from mental illness has to defend herself in family court.) We have been battling against the loss of our children for the last 2 years.(they pulled a trump and spread misinformation and made a decade of false reports all unfounded and even brainwashed coached manipulated and mentally destroyed our children.) Recently we received a letter of recommendation from the therapist that states : To Whom it may concern, My name is ******** ********; I am a licensed marriage and family therapist at douglas CARES. I began working with the ***** and ******I family July 9th, 2020 for individual and family therapy due to diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder in many family members. During my time working with the family, they have made immense progress, they are beginning to stabilize however, visits with the kid’s grandparents cause behaviors and anxieties tend to escalate prior to and immediately following contact with their grandparents. There have been several behavioral concerns and stressors prior to and following visits with the children’s grandparents. The girls had been placed in relative foster care, with their maternal grandparents. This placement did not encourage a relationship with their mother and the girls were then moved into nonrelative care. While living with their grandparents the relationship between the girls and Douglas CARES has gone though many challenges. The grandparents would continuously get involved in their treatment and berate them into telling them about their sessions. The grandparents strongly discouraged any positive conversations regarding mom. For example, **** has reported that if she was to behave poorly in visits with her mother or Douglas CARES staff, she would be rewarded with bubble gum ice cream. When **** was ask how long this behavior had been going on with her grandparents, she reported “my whole life.” During **** and ****’s time in care, they have had an estranged relationship with their mother and stepfather; both have been working on reestablishing this relationship in therapy. Both girls are wishing to spend more time with their mother and stepfather at this point. Since the girls have been asking to visit and go back to live with their mother, they have been feeling as if their grandparents are treating them differently. **** has stated that she feels as if her grandparents are mad at her due to wishing to return home. When in sessions with Douglas CARES staff, if they attempted to identify strengths of their mothers or past positive memories, the girls would become agitated and not speak to therapist working with the girls the following visit. Due to these concerns, it is my recommendation that any visits between the **** and ****** family is conducted at the child welfare building. Weekly visits with the girl’s grandparents had become detrimental to the progress the girls are making in treatment. Visits with grandparents should be limited to once a month, supervised at DHS. Since starting visits with their grandparents, **** has begun to act out, including harming her sister, being defiant and having (bathroom) accidents both at night and during the day. I am concerned that these visits are causing a relapse of post trauma anxiety for the family. Thank you very much for your consideration in this matter. And the judge knowing all of this and more still is trying to force us to place our child in the care of people who have done so much to our children already. We as parents are absolutely mortified at the way everything has transposed. We have much more information please contact us by email: allenbowers802@gmail.com

      How long have these people ever gone without eating? Have they ever missed a day or two? How about three or a whole work week? House is empty and you dont get paid till Friday so you drink water and grit your teeth. The weekend comes and you can barely stand but you cook some tacos and cry while you eat. You cry because you know it wont last, because food has never tasted so good but more than anything you cry because some people out there didnt get to eat today.

      This gets me fucked up because people dont know that pain. Eating your meal for the day and then going to bed while your stomach is full because its impossible to sleep with the hunger pains. Drinking water or milk for a meal. Eating out with people you have to force yourself to eat slow because you're so ravenous. You all finish eating and you cant help but wanna finish the scraps on other peoples plates and you hate yourself for that but your know tomorrow the hunger will come back so you swallow your pride and ask anyway. People who dont know really cant understand. This shit hurts on a lot of levels.

    To Laura Ingraham “roadblocks put in place by Republicans creates hunger” and then that leads to starvation, Ms. Ingraham. In Canada the Employment Insurance system is uniform and robust across all provinces. AND we have fast tracking programmes that ensure individuals can retrain quickly in order to get back to work. American policy is to create hunger and then not give so much as a chicken wing to gnaw on.

    This shit is exactly what's been going on in Australia, expect bordering on worse. Our payments nation-wide are ~$270 a week. Look up the currency conversion.

    I'm still flabbergasted that things like this go on in America, the so-called "city upon a shiny hill". All that tax revenue that could've helped hardworking people who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own is in the pockets of billionaires offshore or their Manhattan penthouse apartment portfolios. And Florida wonders why the world thinks it's a backwater dump! The likes of DeSantis love to rile against big business when it suits them, but they have effectively sold the souls of Floridian workers to appease the very big business, big pharma & "elites" they claim to hate. Yet Massachuets is a far more prosperous and business friendly environment as its workers are undoubtedly more skilled because it's a more attractive place to work, due to its better pay, and at least the workers are better looked after. But woe, Floridians & Kentuckians will still vote for these fools who publicly show them zero respect.
