    Raising the next generation of "dindu nuffins"

    State Parks funding falls under the jurisdiction of the State, the Feds don't give money out for that unless a request is put in by a Senator or Congressman for a specific funding issue. The park falls into two Congressional districts. You won't get a Congressman from a different district try to get funding for a project that would not impact their district, just like I'd hope Brindisi wouldn't try to get money for a state park 2 1/2 hours away in a different district.

    Yes, she does tweet a lot, but from many reports a lot of her constituents like her. She opened an office in Jackson Heights back in March. The cost for the space is $5,400, compared that to nearly $15,000, which is what former Congressman Joe Crowley's office spent in rent. She has another office in Parkchester that she shares with a NY Assemblyman, to save rent costs. She graduated Cum Laude from Boston University with a degree in International Relations and Economics, she's not dumb like people make her out to be. There are many conservatives that have actually commented that when she goes into a hearing she's very prepared and asks very tough questions. One conservative said that she was the most prepared he'd seen a Congressman in a while. You don't need a degree in environmental science to point out the obvious effects of climate change, especially when 97% of scientist believe the same thing. Heck, the US Military has stated that climate change is real and something that can negatively impact us for generations. https://unfccc.int/news/climate-change-threatens-national-security-says-pentagon https://www.usni.org/magazines/proceedings/2017/october/war-plan-orange-climate-change https://www.americansecurityproject.org/climate-security/ Heck, everyone seems to love the military in the US, so why do they ignore them on this? As for Ivanka, have you seen what she's been doing? Talk about shooting her mouth off like she has the rights.. She's only there because her daddy is President.

    Oh, I thought you meant he donated land since he became president. This happened in 2006, so it's an unused park in Westchester and Putnam Counties. Looks like he bought the land in hopes to make it into a golf course and was denied he decided let it go unused and after a number of years decided to donate it to get that nice tax write off. Very generous of him. Thanks for the share. Also, AOC can't do anything about the park because it's a state park, not controlled by the federal government.

    What property was donated by the President? It's not like it was his land to begin with, it was owned by the government, so it should be easy to see what land he gave away.

    Black farmers make up less than 2% of all farms in the US. Where did all of these millions in tax dollars come from, through what program? Also, I see you have no problems with the BILLIONS of money the US has recently given to farmers as a payoff for Trump hurting them through his stupid tariffs. So not only does the average taxpayer have to pay more for items, not the hard working American Taxpayer has to give BILLIONS to farmers in payoffs in an effort to make sure they vote for him again in 2020. What a bunch of ghetto letter recipients these farmers are. Sucking off the teat of the federal government.

    She does go home, she's been back to her district a bit, she's held town halls in her district and other meetings, she's also attended a number of events in her district. Don't know why you're saying that they've been clamoring for her attention for months. Also, can you name this land that Trump donated to be used as a park?

    I'm glad you have such a narrow view of the US's existence, by simply writing off the prior years you're able to make your faulty argument fit you facts better. Also, don't forget whites fought to keep people as slaves in that war as well, lots of poor whites who were taken for a ride by the wealthy slaveowners of the period. Also, care to cite your claim that all slaves were given free passage to Africa if they wanted? Historical records would dispute that. I'd love to see the pre-PC history you studied, it must be fascinating. There were over 4 million freed slaves at the end of the Civil War. Fewer than 7,000 ex-slaves went back to Africa in the 50+ years the various societies organized trips, that's a drop in the bucket compared to the ones that were brought here. You think it's so easy to just say, hey go back to Africa, after generations of being slaves. BTW, the US treasury gave $100,000 dollars to aid the effort. Various states through the 1800's kicked in another $150,000 or so. I would love to hear how many states "they" want to claim as their own, also what are the names being bandied about?

    Nobody is saying it's a priority in America in 2019. It still exists today in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America (sex slaves are real here in the US), South America and more. It's not a fake issue, it's real and still affects millions of people.

    Th Act Prohibiting Importation of Slaves was passed in 1807 and went into effect in 1808. They estimate another 50,000 slaves were imported into the US after the Act passed, mostly through Florida and Texas.

    Well, it looks like they're wrong. July 8th it is. Also, very telling quote from Oliver Blaise in the article, hmm, wonder which side he's pulling for. https://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/binghamton/news/2019/06/26/broome-county-district-attorney-primary-election-result

    From someone that works at the County, but they could be wrong.

    I never said I agreed with reparations, I actually don't, but his post still had a ton of misinformation in it. As for slavery, it's still happening all over the world. Not just in Africa.
  14. I don't know who "you guys" is supposed to be, but it's certainly not me. I won't support him, nor would I vote for him in the general election.

    So apparently the absentee ballot count is set for July 15th.
