If The USA Couldn't Stay Together, Then Maybe Secession Is The Ticket

Posted 01-19-2021 at 08:20 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

At this writing, tomorrow may well be the first day of the rest of our lives. A stolen presidential election had thrown America into a long nightmare for two months. Unresolved voter fraud and gutless Republicans, not to mention one chicken Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, have left our nation on the cusp of a Communist return.

That's where we're at now. Instead of what should have been a second term of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and MAGA...

Warning: A rant from a former Downtown Denver resident 2010 to 2019

Posted 01-17-2021 at 12:28 AM by sophiapinella

"...we are also expected to believe these people would be completely cured and contributing members of society if only they were given free apartments."

I am now feeling similarly. I went from compassionate, to feeling used by these addicts who move here looking for free rides, free food, free housing, while defecating and shooting up in broad daylight, on the busiest sidewalks in town.
