    We spend over $200 billion a month on entitlements to US citizens, I don't think it is never America.

    You can argue that we could maybe spend the money going to Ukraine somewhere else, but you can't argue that we don't spend a shitpot on US citizens.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    We have our own poor, and now we have imported the world’s poor. This government is making sure they get all the entitlements they deserve and don’t deserve.

    The working man who isn’t on entitlements and pays for all that gets a huge “FUCK ‘EM” from their government.

    How much money a year does FICA bring into the US Treasury? How many people are avoiding paying FICA at all? I'm having a hard time finding this on Google

    Report: China Expanding on Caribbean Island in ‘Backyard’ of U.S.


    China is expanding its territory on a small island in the Caribbean considered to be in the “backyard” of the United States, according to leaked documents.

    The island of Antigua, which is roughly 220 miles from the U.S. Virgin Islands, has been taken over by China, with the intention of turning the island into a Chinese “economic zone”, Newsweek reported.

    Documents reviewed by the outlet show that:

    This natural paradise on the island of Antigua, where officials will study the thoughts of Xi Jinping, is about to be razed for a Chinese-run special economic zone. According to documents reviewed by Newsweek it will have its own customs and immigration formalities, a shipping port and a dedicated airline and will be able to issue passports. It will establish businesses offering everything rom logistics to cryptocurrencies, facial surgery to “virology.”


    What was once seen as being in the “backyard” of the U.S., is quickly being transformed into China’s so-called “front yard” with the help of loans, grants, and construction projects, according to the outlet.

    While some Antiguans, such as Gisele Isaac, the chairwoman of the United Progressive Party, have expressed that China’s expansion on the island has left them feeling uneasy, Antiguan Prime Minister Gaston Browne spoke highly of China and Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.


    “I see China, though, as a country that stands on truth, and a country that, you know, at least has some level of empathy for small states, and generally for poor and dispossessed persons globally,” Browne told the outlet.
    A spokesperson for the Florida-based U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) acknowledged the recent reports that China has been expanding on Antigua in a statement to the outlet.


    We are aware that China may use its commercial and diplomatic presence for military purposes. In Asia, Africa and the Middle East, China has already abused commercial agreement at host-country ports for military aims; our concern is they may do the same in this region.


    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned in April 2022, that China was planning to expand and capitalize on an “economic downturn” occurring in Latin America.
    Rubio warned that the United States could not “afford to let the Chinese Communist Party expand its influence and absorb Latin America and the Caribbean.”

    Over the past few years, China’s growing economic, diplomatic, and military powers have given rise to concerns as many fear China will overtake the U.S. as a superpower.

    With recent tax law changes it is pretty hard to avoid paying into FICA without committing tax fraud. It used to be easy. Set up a S Corporation and run your profits through it and legally avoid FICA, but those loopholes have been closed.

    Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass’s home broken into with her inside
    Conrad Hoyt April 21, 2024 8:15 pm


    An intruder broke into Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass’s home early Sunday morning, though it is unclear what the suspect’s motive was.

    Bass was inside her Getty House residence at the time of the crime, and it appears her family was too, as the mayor’s office said neither she nor her family were injured in the break-in.

    “This morning at about 6:40 AM, an intruder broke into Getty House through a window. Mayor Bass and her family were not injured and are safe,” Zach Seidl, deputy mayor of communications, said. “The Mayor is grateful to LAPD for responding and arresting the suspect.”

    Police vehicles and officers were still outside the Democratic mayor’s home at about 4 p.m. on Sunday, per NBC Los Angeles. The suspect was reportedly taken into custody and treated for minor injuries.

    The Getty House is the official residence of the mayor of Los Angeles. It is located in the Windsor Square neighborhood, a historic district east of Hancock Park.

    The investigation into the break-in is ongoing, police said.

    I simply would like to have us spend the same amount of money on our border security and maintaining our borders as we do with Ukraine.

    I mean I know people say a wall would do absolutely nothing. I think it could do something but yet unsure how effective. 15 billion. Can't we just divert 15 billion of the 90 we are sending Ukraine just to see?

    I mean we are likely 100% sure 90 billion isn't going to get delivered with 100% efficiency to Ukraine. Some will go to Z. Some will go to his friends. Some to some defense contractor. I mean can't we at least see what happens?
