Looks more like Steve Apple than Tim Apple.
I I find it funny how he is such a pathological liar that at first he claimed he said Tim Cook Apple but when video/audio proved that wasn't true he claimed he did it for expedience & not bc he forgot the guy's last name. It's like the time he called a woman by her correct first name but said "Lockheed" for her surname. I personally don't care if he got someone's name wrong. I'm terrible with names so I'm the last person to judge people on that one. What gets me is that he had to go and lie about it instead of just admitting he made a mistake. I don't think he actually thought those were their actual surnames, but I think he forgot their real surnames &/or got slightly confused bc he was trying to connect them to the companies they worked for. It happens.
The proposed cuts to SS, Medicare, & Medicaid are *much* more important, IMO.
Trump said he wouldn’t cut Medicaid, Social Security, and Medicare. His 2020 budget cuts all 3.
Trump also said he would pay David Pecker back. He said he would pay contractors who did work for him. He never did. He has defaulted on so many loans that not a single US bank will actually loan him $. The only bank within the US (but which is not a US bank) that would loan him $ was known for laundering Russian $. As an aside, former Justice Kennedy's sons worked at that bank & were tied to the money laundering.
He lies about everything.
Apparently Pelosi & some nutjobs are pushing to lower the voting age to 16. If kids can't drink at that age, work without special rules in the workplace, get married without permission, or consent to sex then they why would it be ok for them to vote? Kids at that age would most likely just be voting how their parents told them to vote- and could be punished for voting differently than the parents instructed (unless they lied to the parents about how they voted). It's just a bad idea all around.
Oregon was pondering that too.
Then there's those kids that skipped school to tell adults they are going to die in 30 years because of global warming.
......wet behind the ears idiots, parroting what they are taught.
Since some states are raising the age to own a gun to 21, I think you should be 21 to be eligible for military service.
Trump wants SNL investigated for making jokes about him. Guess he doesn't know about free speech.
But then you have 18-21 year olds roaming the streets without much to do but get in trouble when no jobs are available. This gives a lot of them a job and able to focus on what they are going to do when they get out plus maybe a GI bill for college help.
If they can carry a gun in the military at 18, they should be able to buy one at the same age.
Probably get better instructions and oversight in the military, but I think 18 is still OK..
21 in the military might be nice but I bet a lot harder to get recruits since the 21 year olds most likely would have jobs and wouldn't join because of that.
We still have gun safety taught in 4H and Boy Scouts.
How about this: they can join the military willingly at 18 but can't be drafted until 21.
I posted this in the Insanity thread, but I think this is a serious problem if the speculation that it is a deliberate attack on our govt employees overseas. https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/br...ork-of-hostile-foreign-government-60-minutes/
Politics aside, if our people are having their brains scrambled intentionally by enemy actions then we need to address it & fast. Unfortunately, it becomes difficult to broach for diplomatic reasons. But China is no friend to the US. They want us to buy their cheap crap-- even when it's toxic, but we really should be wary.
Editing to clarify that the attacks were confirmed in Cuba but there have been subsequent possible attacks in China that have not been officially accepted/acknowledged as attacks by the US govt. They are trying to sweep it under the rug a bit & claim it was for other reasons even though that doesn't make sense.
I believe it happened in Cuba.
Yeah, they confirmed it happened in Cuba & compensated the employees there, but they are not accepting the claims for the possible attacks in China. The attacks are pretty much identical. There have also been a few reported (but not confirmed) cases in Russia.
As long as all the corporations in America continue to throw our workers under the bus in the name of profit China is going to take over the world with our money. The amount of wealth transfer to China from us is astounding. And thats happened in the last 10 years. We're getting F'kd and Trump along with his daughter still makes products in China. Makes me want to barf.
