Very Pro-Trump take on the Bolton departure on UpFirst (NPR Podcast) today, 9/11.

Semi-related: I thought this was a pretty good take on media bias from ALL sides. It addresses the issue fairly, and states what I believe is the true source of why news is not reported fairly from either side.

Currently loading my plane at Banyan FBO and filing my flight plan to Freeport.

What are you doing about it except spewing your extreme hatred for everything Trump?
I value and commend you for your actions. Is this totally donated time and gas, or are you compensated in any way?

cruise ships are already back in Nassau, some back on their private islands plenty of room to help their own. Liberals assume everyone that is black there, is poor and helpless. Bahamas is the richest country in the West Indies.



more liberal racism exposed in this thread.....

Obviously, some homes are prepared to take in such people but only for so long and said homes can only hold a certain amount!

As a Rotarian, I support and donate to ShelterBox, which is exactly set up to assist in these matters.

Not that it is any of your business to the question I asked of T-310.

The only compensation is I write it off on my taxes as a donation. But the hotel I stayed at, my meals on me.

Trump claims Bahamians are very bad people, criminals, refuses to let helpless Bahaman refugees into the USA...
The problem with letting in ppl from these countries is that it is NEVER temporary as it is meant to be. We have ppl who have been here since the 90s who refuse to return to their home countries when things are back to normal.
