    Worker pay rate hits highest level since 2008

    Can someone explain this to me? If pay is rising, does inflation always rise as well? Why is that a good thing? I have thought inflation was a fairly negative thing? "Compensation for workers rose to a nearly 10-year high in the second quarter as inflation pressures continued to percolate...

    Switzerland’s High Rate of Gun Ownership and Low Murder Rate Proves What 2A Advocates

    Law-abiding gun owners have had their names dragged through the mud since the media began their post-Parkland crusade against guns.

    Cong. Black Caucus refuses to applaud lower black unemployment rate ever.

    Say all you need to know about these hypocrites. They don’t care about black folks, they just want their vote. I’m sure this post is racist..... https://pjmedia.com/blog/liveblogevent/tuesdays-hot-mic-42/entry-222596/

    Regarding socialite's "FIRST RATE 'P*USSY", "nothing like it". Guess who!!

    So while DONALD, "IT WAS A FAKE" (the Access Hollywood one) TRUMP lies about that one, there's this latest revelation. Yes, it was 10 years ago. And while he was married to this one and when his 5th 'heir' was about 4. (Don't you love the irony of a GOLF magazine that thought the quote was too...

    Trump picking white males for judiciary at highest rate in 30 years

    It's pretty obvious that the fool in charge is a racist (among other things), he also seems to enjoy chaos and turmoil. The longer this ass (and White Nationalists like him) are running this country, the farther the divide. Uprisings will not be at the fault of minorities. It will be Trump's...

    Trump job gains down
