    The Chinese can manufacture zillions of them - and program them to swarm - whether troops, armour, aircraft carriers or fortified installations.

    And they would look to TikTok to look at your face?

    They've already raided every other social media and website for that kind of information. Tik Tok is providing a forum for directly marketing to US consumers, bypassing major and minor vendors - think Amazon, Facebook, etc.

    Had a pretty decent night. The snoring is in fact not mine. Not sure how it determines whether I met the goal or not. I did have a dream where I got caught making out with another hot redhead.

    Doesn't look like this is anything new.

    "Plug In Hybrid" seems to be teh way to go. Most people have short trips with their car, and if my understand is correct, a Plug In Hybrid does not require any special charging equipment.

    Not only a matter of size, but also resolution and speed of rendering a page.
    A large but low resolution screen will likely be uncomfortable to read.
    Low page rendering speed may adversely affect reading after a page turn.
    Size, resolution, and speed all cost money.
    Good luck with your search.

    Did anybody see/hear the response speech from Sen. Britt?

    Hmm, was not to impressive in my opinion.

    I did not watch it.

    Was it as bad as Marco Rubio drinking water?

    It wasn't great. She's apparently a rising star, but needs to rise a few more years before she's ready for anything much bigger IMO. She's very committed and sincere, but what little I watched consisted of standard talking points mixed with it "I'm a wife and mother, so I know".

    She definitely seems to have the misleading politician talk down already!!

    Britt shared the story of a woman she spoke with at the southern border, who Britt said was sex-trafficked by the cartels, recalling in graphic detail the story of the abuse of the then-12-year-old.

    "We wouldn't be OK with this happening in a third-world country," Britt said at the conclusion of the story. "This is the United States of America and it is past time, in my opinion, that we start acting like it. President Biden's border policies are a disgrace."

    well..............

    An independent journalist, Jonathan M Katz, first reported in a viral video that the story Britt recalled of the trafficking had actually occurred in Mexico during George W. Bush's presidency. Britt appeared to be telling the story of Karla Jacinto Romero, who has testified before Congress about being the victim of sex trafficking by Mexican cartels when she was 12.

    Thats terrible (and stupid) to even say that. He certainly does not deserve to be one of the 100 senators.

    @Renauda said in Trump’s shortlist:

    @taiwan_girl

    I could see Trump giving Gabbard, Nikki Haley’s old job as US Ambassador to the U.N.. In that way she be under leash to the Sectretary of State whoever that is, although I would not be the least bit surprised to see Trump bring back Mike Pompeo in the top diplomat role.

    You may be right!! 🤗

    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday did not rule out accepting a position from former President Trump in a second administration, if he’s reelected in November.

    Asked by Fox News’s Neil Cavuto if he would consider working under Trump again, Pompeo said it was “flattering” to hear that his name has come up

    And at the end of the day, many of you are quite comfortable with election fraud, as long as the election goes your way.

    A pox on you and your house.😛😛

    Don't look at me. I've been complaining about the damn machines back in Barry's time.

    True.
