Rep. Ayanna Pressley said Friday all public transit should be fare-free, and her idea got huge applause at a gathering of diehard progressive activists.

Pressley, a member of the freshman squad, made the comments off the cuff as she was touting her criminal justice legislation aimed at radically decreasing the number of people incarcerated, abolishing private prisons and decriminalizing low-level offenses related to poverty.

“Like why are we locking kids up for evading fares?" Pressley said of turnstile jumpers. “They don't got it!

"Deal with the root problem. Public transit should be free anyway!”

The Howard University crowd burst into cheers. She paused for 10 seconds as the audience continued to erupt.

“Yeah,” Pressley said, emphasizing her free-fare point.

Her comments came at an event with her fellow squad members – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. – where they spoke to “The Rising Majority” activists who are working on racial justice, immigration rights, climate change and economic equality issues.

The squad touted the power of the progressive movement that helped propel them into office in 2018 and how they intend to make real governmental changes. The hashtag for the event was #squadup and a banner on stage read: "Building an antiracist left for radical democracy.”

Although they are only freshmen, the four squad members have an outsized national profile and their ideas can take hold swiftly in the party, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s push for the Green New Deal.

I think most would be happy dropping the massive military support - but you have to drop America's role as global police force first. It's putting the cart before the horse. You can't one before the other. You can barely focus on any domestic policies before this.

And it's not something anyone in power is willing to do. Either Dems or Republicans. This has been the plan for the US since the British empire fell, who held the job before. And so on and so forth for thousands of years of imperial police forces. Work on that first. It's a bigger problem than your choo-choo trains.

Key part being: in a sensible, cohesive, high-trust society. All kinds of stuff will work there that could never anywhere else. From free transit to generous social benefits to just being courteous and helpful to random strangers that will never pay you back directly.

Paying it forward by letting someone merge into traffic, knowing the next guy will let you in. Leaving free samples or halloween candy unattended, or ensuring a public resource like a campground or park is in better condition than you found it. When you're contributing to help your fellow man, and everyone would be ashamed to take advantage of a generous system, it works.

When your homeland is filled with shameless, opportunistic, low-impulse-control hordes, then any favor you do goes unrequited, everything that isn't bolted down gets stolen for scrap, and any time you relax you get taken advantage of.

Which is why giving the africans free run of the train system will be a total chimpout, just like doubling my taxes so doctors can spend millions on Duhbonica's morbid obesity-related ailments.

>America's role as global police force

Literally a meme created at the end of WW2 to justify empire building and allegedly opposing communism. End of the cold war it was "combating terrorism" to justify keeping in bed with unsavory middleeasterners to prop up the petro dollar. All the while outsourcing the manufacturing base to the third world to make the elites richer.

>it's not something anyone in power is willing to do

Because while the American public was watching TV and jerking themselves off to patriotic fervor the elites were busy selling out the public and looting the country with secret insider military contracts that gave them kickbacks and what can only be described as the most unprecedented example of corporate hijacking of a nation in world history.

>Work on that first

Can't be done as long as the public is a bunch of uninformed cucks who think that the people on top give a shit about them or look out for their interests. Case in point dumb shit right wingers who vote against their own interests but never bat an eye at the amount of tax dollars sent to banks, corporations, minorities and foreigners. Ron Paul was the only republican to suggest cutting aid to Israel and he was booed off the stage.

Part of fixing the public is to get them thinking about what the government SHOULD BE DOING FOR THEM! Hence why "choo-choo trains" as you put it, actually are important.

You may have heard of celebrities or multibillion-dollar companies donating money to cover students' lunch debt. But Keoni Ching from Vancouver, Washington, is just your normal 8-year-old who wanted to help his schoolmates.

With his handmade key chains that go for $5 each, Keoni raised $4,015 to erase the lunch debt of students from his school and six others.

It all started because Keoni wanted to do something special for “Kindness Week” at his school, Benjamin Franklin Elementary. With his mother, April, and father, Barry, by his side, Keoni thought about projects that would truly reflect kindness.

Keoni was ultimately inspired by San Francisco 49ers player Richard Sherman. The cornerback, who previously played for the Seattle Seahawks, donated more than $27,000 to cover students' lunch debt. Keoni, for the record, is a Miami Dolphins fan, he said.

Keoni said he decided to make key chains because, "I love key chains. They look good on my backpack."

Is okay fren, you don't suffer alone.

If you don't already, I recommend learning how to cook. It's amazing what having the ability to cook a "real", top-notch meal from scratch for a fraction of the cost of going out to eat will do for your outlook. Other's will look at you like you're some kind of God too, for something as simple as preparing a pot of sausages and veg, scratch-made brown gravy and a side of starch (mashed potatoes, rice, etc) is practically a lost art these days.

Because our parents were lazy fucks who lived off of tv dinners and never taught us.

The man who is accused of deliberately driving his van into a tent where voters were being registered by local Republicans told the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office his disapproval of President Donald Trump was a motivating factor, according to an unredacted arrest report obtained by News4Jax.

Gregory Timm, 27, was arrested hours after police said his van plowed through the tent, narrowly missing volunteers who were set up the parking lot of a Walmart Superstore at the corner of Atlantic and Kernan boulevards about 3:50 p.m. on Saturday. He’s accused of two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

According to JSO investigators who tracked him down, Timm admitted to purposefully driving into the tent because “someone had to take a stand.”

Timm told investigators he saw the registration tent after he went to pick up food and cigarettes at Walmart, according to JSO.

He then showed investigators a video he recorded while driving towards the tent, according to JSO, but the video cut out before he hit the tent. According to the report, Timm said he was upset that the video ended before “the good part.”

A scientist speaking at the National Farmers Union conference has argued that living a vegan lifestyle is more damaging to the environment than eating meat.

The Rothamsted Institute’s Graham McAuliffe said that the manner in which tofu — a protein foodstuff made from soy ‘milk’ — is produced has a worse carbon footprint than chicken, pork, or lamb produced for eating, according to an unpublished report.

Dr McAuliffe, who models the environmental impact of foods, said that current accepted research which claims that eating meat is worse for the environment fails to take into account that the human body does not absorb as much protein from plants as it does from meat, meaning that on a vegan diet, a person would have to eat more in order to obtain a healthy amount of protein, according to a report in The Times.

Speaking at the conference in London, the scientist said: “Without a doubt peas and ground nuts always have a lower environmental impact than any livestock products.

“But if you look at tofu, which is processed so there is more energy going into its production, when you correct for the fact that the protein in it is not as digestible compared to the meat-based products, you can see that it could actually have a higher global warming potential than any of the monogastric animals.

“To get the same amount of protein, tofu is worse.”

you are so full of shit, and you know it, this is all you meater scum can do, lie and lie. zero science to back up your claims. just anecdotes and bullshit. and you assuming why I'm vegan is just further proof of how sick in the head you are.

you sound like some abused fuck or someone who's lived under strict parents and thinks we should all be drones like you.

you'll spend hours debating vegans, but you don't dare do any research, coz then you just might have to think for yourself.

fucking low testosterone faggot wants to kill animals coz it's the only way to feel superior to anything.

why am I arguing with a sub-human like you? for the 1% of ppl who will read this and change. 84% of vegans quit. it's a small percentage of people who are actually humans, rest of you are just wild animals who live your lives not really understanding much. just regurgitating w/e a figure of authority told you. get fucked, faggot shitter.

With no meat production we'd be forced to start hunting and eating the remaining herbivores, the vegans.

You're already arguing that animals are humans and meat is murder so what's the difference? If we really want to save the lives of animals and the environment we should start eating vegans! It will also solve the overpopulation issue and lessen the strain on healthcare systems in welfare countries which are currently being clogged up by all the illnesses caused by the vegan diet.

Venezuela's armed forces and civilian militias took the streets in cities, beaches and border regions on Saturday for drills ordered by President Nicolás Maduro, amid tensions between Washington and Caracas.

Despite the maneuvers, there are no indications that the U.S. plans any military intervention in Venezuela. Washington has focused on political and diplomatic pressure in its efforts to oust Maduro, only saying last year that it had not ruled out a military option.

Maduro called for the exercises as he comes under pressure from the U.S. and dozens of other nations backing a year-long campaign by opposition leader Juan Guaidó to force the leader from power.

Residents in a pro-Maduro slum in Caracas participated in the exercises. They included a growing number of civilian militia members recruited by a cash-starved government that is struggling to keep Venezuela's shattered economy afloat.

“I answered the call to help prepare for our defense because my country, my homeland, is under threat from the U.S. empire,” said militia member Pablo Antonio Reyes, a 63-year-old electronics technician.

Militiamen and government supporters dressed in red shirts held combat drills on streets blocked off by city buses. They evacuated residents from buildings as tires burned on rooftops to simulate fires from attacks.

"The purpose of this exercise is to keep us prepared," said militia member Carmen Ferrer, 50.

Maduro said that the two-day maneuvers were aimed at fending off “terrorist aggression” by Washington and its allies in the region including neighboring Colombia.

The Venezuelan military, which has received Russian support, deployed missile launchers, anti-aircraft batteries and radars in the streets. The government seeks to boost militia ranks, filled out by the old and young, housewives and students.

Macy's plans to close 125 stores over the next three years and cut thousands of corporate jobs, the company said Tuesday.

The store closings represent about one fifth of the retailer's locations. The company will also cut 2,000 corporate jobs, representing about 9% of its corporate headcount, and close several offices.

"We are taking the organization through significant structural change to lower costs, bring teams closer together, and reduce duplicative work," Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette said in a statement on Tuesday. "This will be a tough week for our team as we say goodbye to great colleagues and good friends. The changes we are making are deep and impact every area of the business, but they are necessary."

Macy's said New York City will become the company's sole corporate headquarters.

The company will be closing its San Francisco, downtown Cincinnati, and Lorain, Ohio offices. The company will also close its Tempe, Arizona customer contact center and consolidate customer service work into its Mason, Ohio and Clearwater, Florida facilities.

Nvidia in its latest earnings report this week said it generated $3.11 billion in revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 that ended on January 26. That’s an increase of 41 percent over the $2.21 billion brought in during the same period a year ago and a three percent hike quarter-over-quarter.

Q4 earnings per diluted share were $1.53, up an impressive 66 percent from $0.92 in the year-ago quarter and six percent over the $1.45 in the previous quarter.

Nvidia co-founder and CEO Jensen Huang cited record data center revenue in the quarter. “Adoption of Nvidia accelerated computing drove excellent results,” he added.

Full-year figures weren’t quite as positive, however, as Nvidia earned just $10.92 billion last year. That’s a seven percent decrease from the $11.72 billion generated a year earlier.

A New Hampshire man was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a polling site during the state’s first-in-the-nation primary earlier this week.

The teen's mother said in an exclusive interview with Fox News after the arrest that her son is "traumatized."

The Windham Police Department said Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct.

Fox News has learned that the suspect got in the face of the teenage boy who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and volunteering at the Trump tent at Windham High School, a polling location for the New Hampshire primary.

Not only did Lawrence Ray, the New Jersey conman charged with starting a sex cult in his daughter’s dorm, allegedly alienate his young victims from their parents — he drove a wedge between his own daughters.

The now 30-year-old Talia Ray is still seeking a connection with her baby sister, Ava, to whom she apparently hasn’t spoken since their family was rocked by abuse allegations stoked by their father, according to a report.

“AVA I LOVE YOU & I MISS YOU EVERY DAY! xoxo always, Your Big Sister,” reads the bio on a Twitter account for “@talia_ray.”

Lawrence Ray, 60, was charged last week with federal sex trafficking, nine months after allegations surfaced in a New York Magazine article that he lured Talia’s college friends into a sex cult.

Is it over for Uncle Joe?

Former Vice President Joe Biden is in New York City Thursday night mingling with Wall Street Democratic fundraisers who he hopes will give him enough cash to fuel his sputtering campaign and help him clinch the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. The back-to-back fundraisers are expected to gin up a solid $1 million in campaign cash

But behind the scenes, the word from the party’s fat-cat set is that the Biden campaign may already be lost despite the Wall Street C-suite names attending the events because former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is poised to take sole control of the party’s moderate wing.

“I feel sorry for Biden,” said Leon Cooperman, a billionaire hedge fund investor who has supported Democrats in the past despite being critical of President Obama. “He should withdraw; he has no chance.”

Like Cooperman, these executives — who work at hedge funds, on Wall Street and in real estate — cite as evidence several factors including Biden’s poor showing in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. They say that much of the money delivered to the Biden campaign as part of Thursday fundraisers at New York City restaurants Sarabeth’s and The Wayfarer was earmarked before his big losses in Iowa and New Hampshire and that big donors have more recently pulled back.

An 80-year-old Chinese tourist has died from the new coronavirus in France, the first death confirmed outside of Asia, French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said on Saturday.

Buzyn said she had been told about the death of the patient — in hospital in Paris since late January — late on Friday, adding that his condition “had deteriorated rapidly” after several days in a critical condition.

Six people with the virus remain in hospital in France, Buzyn said, adding that none were seriously ill.

One of them was the dead Chinese tourist’s 50-year-old daughter and the rest were British nationals who were infected by a compatriot at a French ski resort.

The virus originated late last year in China, where it has since infected more than 66,000 people and killed more than 1,500.

Three deaths from the virus have so far been recorded outside mainland China — in the Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan.

The scale of the epidemic ballooned this week after officials in the Chinese province of Hubei — the epicentre of the outbreak — changed their criteria for counting cases, adding thousands of new patients to the tally.

Some 56 million people in Hubei and its capital Wuhan are now living under quarantine, virtually sealed off from the rest of the country in an effort to contain the virus.

Anyone who has been an active internet user for an extended period has likely dealt with criticism of some sort, but companies and business owners tend to get the worst of it. Whether openly hostile or merely critical, negative reviews for products and services are the norm, and tech companies have made it easier than ever for users to share their opinions.

However, opting to do so might just land you in hot water in some circumstances, as one anonymous Google user is about to learn. A dentist based out of Melbourne, Australia, has managed to convince a federal judge to order Google to "unmask" the individual behind a negative review left on his business' Google page.

The dentist, Matthew Kabbabe, claims the three-month-old review in question is the only negative one his business has received to date. "I believe it is extremely unfair that people are allowed to anonymously attack honest, hardworking small businesses," Kabbabe said in a statement to ABC.

The anonymous reviewer (who goes by the username "CBsm 23") could have information like his IP address, phone number, and full name divulged if Google complies with the judge's order.

Unfortunately this is Australia's legal system that we're talking about, and Australia does not have full freedom freedom of speech covered in their constitution.

The only guaranteed freedom of speech is communications related to governance and that's not even actually written into it–it had to be confirmed by their supreme court as being conducive to the function of the government as laid out in the document.

Ergo, much like how you can be sued for hurting a billionaire conglomerate's feelings in the UK (unless it is spoken in parliament), you are subject to liability for your words in Australia.

Not all free speech is protected speech, even if it should be. Also, don't forget you can apparently sign away rights somehow. Signing away privileges makes sense to me, sure, but rights? Rights are supposed to be rights whether you like it or not; they are inalienable and unassailable. Well, whatever - people have the power you give them. The law doesn't protect people, people uphold the law.

Legendary horror author Stephen King says in a Monday op-ed for The Washington Post that the recently announced Academy Award nominations are proof the institution is “rigged in favor of the white folks.”

Earlier this month, King was the subject of controversy over a tweet where he said he "would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality" in response to criticism of this year's overwhelmingly white honorees.

“I also said, in essence, that those judging creative excellence should be blind to questions of race, gender or sexual orientation. I did not say that was the case today, because nothing could be further from the truth,” King wrote in the Monday opinion piece.

“Has there been progress in the film community? Yes, some. I’m old enough to remember when there were only a handful of African American directors and about the only female director in Hollywood was Ida Lupino, who made hard-edged noir B pictures in the 1950s and later worked in television. Her directing work was never nominated for an Oscar or an Emmy,” King writes.

King points to the demographic breakdown of the Academy’s voting members as a potential explanation for why some actors and filmmakers were overlooked in major categories.

The voting members this year, he notes, were only 32 percent women and 16 percent minorities. “Not good enough. Not even within shouting distance of good enough,” King wrote.

Using his own work as an example, King says he was indifferent to the casting of Idris Elba as the Gunslinger from his Dark Tower series, saying, "I didn’t care what the character’s skin color was, as long as he could draw fast and shoot straight."

Oscars is just Hollywood jerking off and eating their own cum. The faster these retards push themselves into irrelevance the sooner we can enjoy an award that celebrates merit. The Parasite deserves it IMO as Korean movies are quite amazing, but the endless diversity shit is pathetic.

Ilhan Omar’s husband discovered the truth about her torrid affair with her chief fundraiser when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

Ahmed Hirsi had long suspected that Omar, 39, was cheating on him with married Tim Mynett but the proof came when he caught the hijab-wearing congresswoman in a state that no Muslim woman would expect to be with a man who is not her husband.

Two separate sources confirmed the account to DailyMail.com, saying that Hirsi was left ‘angry and humiliated’ by the encounter.

‘He suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid,’ one source said.

‘He told her he wanted to move down to D.C. to be with her but she insisted he should stay in Minneapolis with the children. Eventually he surprised her down there and his worst fears were confirmed.

‘It wasn’t that he actually caught them in bed but they were clearly in a romantic situation.’

Their religion doesn't keep hoes from hoeing around - and arguably wearing a headcover doesn't automatically make you a pious person - just the oppressive abuse & control that generally comes with the religion.

Just wonderful. Leading by example. SNAFU incoming, popcorn time. Why are females brought into positions of power again? Because they are 'better than thou', right, you fucking male dicks?? Fight partriarchy, Mary Sues!

Bonus points when she gives press conference telling us 'I had no sexual relationship with this woman' …Errr, man. oc. Hopefully… She was probably just 'mentoring' him.

Any chance her loverboy will sue her for sexual abuse - maybe he did not consent and got raped??

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged countries on Friday to avoid investing in Huawei Technologies Co., China’s largest telecom firm, when building their new cellular networks, warning that to do so would be to “choose autocracy over democracy.”

“China is seeking to export its digital autocracy through its telecommunication giant Huawei,” Pelosi told the audience at the Munich Security Conference, echoing warnings the Trump administration has issued about the Chinese tech giant.

“Nations cannot cede our telecommunication infrastructure to China for financial expediency,” the speaker continued. “Such an ill-conceived concession would only embolden [Chinese President] Xi [Jinping] as he undermines democratic values, human rights, economic independence and national security.”

“We must instead move to an internationalization” for 5G or fifth generation networks, the California Democrat said.
