    On the surface that sounds very stupid. However, the sign was put up originally to deter people from making a U-turn to go to a local gay bar and to meet up on the street. The Silverlake neighborhood has a lot of gay people. It was done maliciously decades ago, and shouldíve been removed years ago as well. Itís not nearly that big of a deal.

    Itís not that a U-turn sign is homophobic. Itís about those particular signs and why they were put up to begin with. They were never put up in the interest of public safety.

    And by the way, there were a bunch of these dumb signs in that area, and most were removed over a decade ago.

    Context is important.

    Like individuals, or people in general, I am sure the government thinks it's in control of much more than reality bears.

    Russian Nuclear Submarine Detected Near UK Coast Sparks Emergency Meeting

    A Russian nuclear submarine was recently spotted off the coast of the United Kingdom, prompting an emergency defense meeting. The incident comes amid escalating tensions between Russia and the West, particularly over the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

    The submarine, identified as the Kazan, is a state-of-the-art Yasen-class vessel, capable of carrying cruise missiles and torpedoes. It was detected after an RAF Poseidon P8 anti-submarine aircraft dropped sonar buoys to detect subsurface activity at depth.

    The submarine's presence near the UK coast has raised alarm bells among NATO leaders, who fear that it may be probing for weaknesses in the alliance's perimeter. The UK's Permanent Joint Headquarters in Northwood was immediately informed of the situation, and both the Prime Minister and Defence Secretary were briefed on the matter.

    This incident comes on the heels of Russian President Vladimir Putin's promise to "punish" the West for providing long-term missiles and a £40 billion loan to Ukraine using frozen Russian assets. The US NATO Ambassador, Julianne Smith, has also indicated a potential policy shift that could allow the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) to target Russian mainland sites.

    The Russian submarine's detection near the UK coast has sparked concerns about the potential for a nuclear confrontation between Russia and the West.

    Gotta love it.

    People complain that we are too involved in foreign wars and foreign politics.

    We do something to make us less attached to a certain area, and people complain about it.

    If your belief system is America First and less involvement in foreign wars, this is a good first step.

    This happens all the time, and yes we do it to other nations ourselves. We popped up one of our Trident's right off the Chinese coast once just to remind them that they had no idea a submarine was right off their shores that could end them as a country.

    This is proposed for FY 2025, not law yet until it goes through Congress, but look at Page 3, Section 3, third bullet:

    "Amends the Military Selective Service Act to require the registration of women for Selective Service."

    United States House of Representatives passes bill to automatically register men aged 18-26 for military draft.

    Failure to register is classified as a felony.

    America is covertly constructing large-scale detention facilities across all 50 states, but they're not for housing illegal immigrants. The purpose is far more sinister. Former Customs and Border Protection supervisor
    @JJCarrell14
    reveals the truth. Democrat Paula Collins recently said, "MAGA supporters should attend a re-education camp after the 2024 election."

    Hillary Clinton is on record saying that supporters of Donald Trump may need to be "deprogrammed," as if they were cult members.
