Too many police traffic stops for minor violations

We have too many police traffic stops for minor traffic violations which lead to too many confrontations. I think it’s dumb to have police patrolling the streets for minor traffic violations. When I lived in Germany you didn’t see a lot of Polizei roaming the streets and pulling people over...they were there to do real policing...instead, you had cameras up that sent you a ticket for minor violations....I think an approach like that is needed here....but of course I can hear people crying about big brother watching and “freedom” if cameras went up everywhere

Herschel Walker and his son are nuts

Edit - and Herschel actually retweeted this

And why is that black conservatives cry that we talk about race too much, but the only time they crawl out it’s to make a controversial statement about race

Democratic backed candidate wins Wisconsin statewide election

Off year election, for a “non sexy” position, during Spring time, with a Democratic president, in a swing state ...these are usually the elections that Democrats lose, glad to see us winning this type of election...bolds well for the future!

"Blank" needs to stay out of politics

I noticed this is Republicans go to phrase when an athlete, movie star, CEO, etc...the phrase is so stupid because in a Democracy everyone should be able to speak their mind on an issue, and I like when those with a big voice and following do..funny how they have no problem when their celebrities speak their minds.....and then they say the same thing on the opposite spectrum when someone like AOC gets involved with politics...they use her bartender past as some type of invalidation, but want to claim that they are the party of “regular” America...I don’t know what can be more regular than AOC’s story....on the flip side, I can talk about Boebert and her only having a GED or college dropout Cawthorne, but again people with GEDs or college dropouts should be able to be involved, too

Hunter Biden is trending

Due to some gun incident in which the Secret Service supposedly inserted itself. Politico is trying to make it seem shady. If anything, to me it shows that Trump probably tried to use the secret service to find some dirt on the Bidens as it happened around the same time as the Ukraine thing...he was President at the time and Biden nor Hunter were under secret service protection....but politico and the conservative media are acting like the secret service was covering something up for Biden...dumb story that is going to get a lot of play in the right wing echo chamber and bubble....Politico was wrong for writing this
