I know of a couple who run a non-profit housing company. They use non-profit status to get grants to buy real estate that they agree to rent as government subsidized housing. After they pay for maintenance and insurance, they pay themselves the balance of income so the company has net zero profit at the end of the year.

Accidental discharge? Bullshit by awawa in politics
When you've seen video after video of cop killers during traffic stops, you understand there is a different dynamic going on in the minds of police officers. A lot of times, it's very low key until the killer pulls out his gun. There was a recent one in New Mexico. If you're observant, you'll see police officers constantly looking at the hands of everyone around them, even while off duty.

I moved in to a neighborhood like that. They eventually got used to me, or got tired of trying to persuade me to do things their way. I even had my next door neighbor, while I was out of town, pull an equipment trailer, loaded with an old Vega, back onto his farm. He didn't like the view from his bedroom window to where it sat behind my garage. It was then destroyed by some teenagers from the adjacent neighborhood. The only reason I didn't get the Sheriff involved was because he was my Aunt's brother-in-law and because he paid for both the car and the trailer.

It's easy if your brain is wired that way. It's no better or worse than trying to get kids whose brains are wired this way to learn by memorization. People are not clones of each other and should be taught to learn in a way that's best for them as the individual. It's hard to do when you have 30 or so children to teach at the same time. Too many parents pass their children off to the schools for everything. Most of the better students have parents who help them with homework (see: spend time with your kids).

Apparently, no one is watching the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer on trial for the murder of George Floyd. Otherwise, the media couldn’t get away with their spectacular lying to the public about how the prosecution is killing it. It’s quite the opposite. by Chipit in OpinionPieces
I was surprised at what some of the prosecution brought out early in the trial. It seemed to help Chauvin's case, like the videos of him politely talking to members of the crowd and explaining what he was doing and why he was doing it. It doesn't make him not responsible, but it makes him human and the videos of Floyd flipping out and high as a kite make him look less human. During cross-examination, some of the prosecution witnesses agreed with statements the defense lawyer made.

So why is banning the Muskrat account helping? If that is a troll account, even playing a straight account, they'll keep up with the "game" with other accounts, and if they've carried it this far, surely there are other regular user accounts here under their control. I am not well educated on IP's and such (so I don't know but I guess there is a way to fool readings on your end), but why would they jeopardize the AmericanMuskrat account in this way? Why would they slip up so easily by using the same image host (and I'm not sure how that's proof even if it seems suspicious)? Looking in, it seems to me that this is one of the troll set-ups. All this confusion on my end is maybe part of the game, though.
On another note, I usually look at comment posting times and some of the regular accounts on here have strange and even staggered active hours. AmericanMuskrat fell into this pattern. I figured he had a night-time security job (or another situation keeping him up at night) and had lots of time to play on his phone. If you want to put some time into it, you may want to to look at some of the comment interactions that different accounts are having with each other in relation to the time of day/night. If they are posting within minutes of each other at times all over the clock, I think that is suspicious. Suspicion is not proof, though.
The troll accounts are definitely using misdirection, pretending to be extremist or "not a native speaker" at times. Maybe there are multiple people taking turns using the same account. Again, I think they are using normie accounts, too. I have entertained the thought that an admin is in on this ruse.
Just some of my thoughts looking in. I don't know if it helps or muddies the water more.
Along those lines, yes. I'm not saying that belief is extreme in any violent way, but it is far beyond what most people believe.

So the timing assembly was a breeze. I've found that I have to take the exhaust manifolds off to get to the heads. To get the exhaust manifolds off, I have to take off the catalytic converters. The nuts and bolts on the rear flange of the cats are rusted solid. I'll be buying parts once I have a list of what I break or have to cut apart.

I met an underground utilities locator who had his work truck taken away and was put in a sub-compact car because the GPS unit on his truck slowed down too fast, twice in a month. The company's thought is that he was distracted and had to break hard.
My experiences with foxes by bobbobbybob in EverythingFoxes

My first experience with foxes was being woken at 2am to what sounded like a woman being murdered in my yard. I knew it had to be an animal and I found it through internet searches. Another time I was watching television around 8pm and thought I heard the neighbor across the road arguing in her yard with someone. I followed the sound to my backyard and found about a dozen foxes having a get-together. One was about 15 feet up a tree. They ignored me for about 5 minutes and then they all left in different directions. We'll often hear kits in the Spring and barking from wandering foxes throughout the summer, usually around dusk. It's mainly Gray Foxes but we do have Red Foxes, too. If you see a Red Fox around here during the day, there's a fair chance it has rabies.

Unwanted voices or disruptive voices? Do you agree that this person or group is being disruptive now, no matter where it began? Why would they spend so much time and energy to take over the site? I believe a sane person would not act this way unless there is a job to do. So, in my opinion, it's either someone with mental or emotional issues or it's a paid job. I like to hear a broad spectrum opinions and views, too, but I don't like to see users here be intimidated or bullied like this person or group has been doing.

I know you have your opinions based on helping others, as do most people. I shouldn't have gotten snippy. I guess I did feel personally attacked since voter fraud is a very personal attack and it seems that you are taking it lightly. It's like if your neighbors watched your house get robbed and told you that it's ok because the rest of them didn't get robbed.
Who gives the water out? Are they party line motivated? What voter demographic areas do they target? Republican groups are barred from doing this just like Democrat groups just like any other group. Where does it stop? Do we allow "advisors" to accompany voters into the booth? How can you say it's not voter influence within the restricted zone? Why can't they have a water station on the way to the polls outside this buffer zone if it's so innocent? There is no law prohibiting water to be handed out outside of the buffer zone. Inside the buffer zone, it is considered a "gift" and a felony to both the receiver and giver, just like anything else handed out. Election workers are allowed to set up self-serve water stations and the ones I've met are very civic minded and would do this if they felt the need. Do you see why I'm skeptical of the Democrat response? It's like my state: the Democrats gerrymandered to gain seats years ago. When the state flipped giving Republicans the advantage, they used their power to gerrymander in their favor. Then, the Democrats sued and made the Republican legislature redraw the districts. "Do as I say, not as I do". They're doing the same with voting laws in that it benefits their party by allowing easier access for invalid voters; either illegal voters or straight up fraud.
This article says that polling locations are based on population. Maybe you can educate me on how this is not fair.
I don't feel like I have to even talk about the weeks of early voting before Election Day and absentee ballots for those with circumstances that keep them from in-person voting. This new law actually expands early voting except for run-off elections and retains the no-excuse absentee voting. There are drop boxes at each early voting place in this law. At least two Sunday voting days including the regular M-F and Sunday voting is left to the discretion of the local precinct for early voting.
We seem to agree that there is undeniable voter fraud and illegal voting. What is your level of significant voter fraud? 10? 100? 1000? 10,000? 100,000? Why would you not want to make it more secure, even if it's "less than significant"? I can cite plenty of lists of vote "irregularities" in this last election, but we both know that these were not followed up past basic recounts. No recounts that happened allowed for verifying voter validity, only the vote. If no fraud happened, then why not show the believers and rub in their face, if not for public confidence? Also, the voting laws in more than the 4 key states were changed by other than the state legislatures as prescribed in the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Supreme court refused to hear the case, not because it didn't happen, but because Texas has no legal standing on what happens in other states.
Article. 1. Section. 4.
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.
The voter fraud numbers are not accurate. I know because mine wasn't reported as fraud. The Board of Elections wrote it off as a mistake even thought the house the fraudster listed that I had moved to had been abandoned for decades. I checked. What do you think would happen if voter fraud turned out to be real and affected a major election? What do you think would happen if voter suppression turned out to be real and affected a major election? Would the Board of Elections speak up and admit to the mistake? Do you see where I'm going with this?
Republicans up to something since they are rushing through voting laws you say? What do you think about the Democrat controlled U.S. Congress and White House rushing this through?
I'm sure we want the same thing: every purposeful, legal vote counted. We have different ideas on how to accomplish that. I see voter fraud as active and you don't. You see voter suppression as active and I don't. Show me where polling places in Democrat areas are being squeezed and I'll back you up on that.

His brother was trying to get him into a drug treatment program. His family said he was bipolar and in a manic state during the time of his death, and they believe it was an accident. I think anything's possible when it comes to the CIA, but I don't see much evidence here (nor does my gut tell me so).
