How in the world can there be any dispute about a simple FACT that can be as easily verified as the definition of an Island? Is this County devoid of any Non-Partisan thought concepts!

BREAKING: NBC News Just confirmed The Thousands of union workers Who Were at a western Pennsylvania petrochemical plant Where Trump Gave a speech were given a choice last week — show up for Trump's speech or stay home and lose some of their weekly pay....So the question remains: How many "willing" supporters did attend.

In the interest of ACCURACY: An Island is a landmass that is completely surrounded by water; In respect to that definition Greenland( unlike stated by various media/pundits is NOT the World's Largest Island, that distinction belongs to Australia, which happens to be approximately the size of the USA!

Edsel- Norwich has definitely been through a lot of downsizing. They just haven’t downsized their city employees and their unnecessarily high salaries to correspond.

Over 400,000 American anti-fascists fighters died during WWII. NAZIS & White Supremacists were the ENEMY then and NOW; History books recount them as heroic. Not one word about them being terrorists.

“Deleted - Another Rat Drowns” about time moderator!
- Man from Norwich

Deleted? You checked out a long time ago!
- Woman from Norwich

A clarification. The moderator removed the copy and put in deleted because I could not delete the entire message after it was posted. I could only remove the copy, but I could not delete the handle. The Problem is the Handle: The Rat Drowns, is offensive, especially as it has been used in reference to Mexico. That Handle, and other like it will lead to a deletion of the entire post.

You may not want to "Agree" with the FACTS, but they indeed R the Facts: Semites DO include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, Hebrews, some Ethiopians, and Aramaean ;tribes. Choosing to be IGNORANT is your prerogative but likewise exposes your Arrogance; As was said by Mr. Spock: "Live long and Prosper"! - TheTrampLies

Norwich Police arrest a naked man walking down East main Street Saturday night complety out of his senses. Just outside the fair grounds coming from the Blues Fest at fairgrounds, just show what really goes on there booze and drugs. And the caliber of those who attend.

"I'm a dope just for being here." First truthful statement you ever made. Perhaps an Antifa or other communist website would provide a more receptive audience for you?
- Man from Oxford

3 10

Just to be precise when accusing anyone of being an Anti-Semite, plz note that it is NOT solely the people of Israel:A Semite is any member of a people speaking any of a group of related languages presumably derived from a common language. The term came to include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, Hebrews, some Ethiopians, and Aramaean tribes. Accuracy matters as do Facts!

Tlaib deserves an academy award for this latest performance . Shame on her for using her Grandmother for political purposes.

Would it really be a "stretch" to think that someone capable of "suggesting" to the Israeli PM how to act in regards towards certain US Congresswomen would also be willing to make a "suggestion" to Shell Oil employers?
- TheTrampLies

I checked the various websites: The Tramp Lies did not lie and Angie is not a know it all; They simply appear to be well informed and capable of reading what is available to anyone interested in knowing the facts.
- Man from McDonough

The Shell Workers/Rally story were carried by several outlets: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Esquire & CNN News; Is the Moderator going to ignore these sources as "unreliable"? Am I still going to be accused of making up "facts" ala the style of the person in the WH?
- TheTrampLies

The post that I referred to was the statement that the President threatened lowly workers. A threat such as that was never made or reported. Whatever the Shell officials or the union offered to their employees was their doing.
- 30sec Moderator

5 10

Obviously 'the president' didn't issue a memo to the workers. However, the two important facts are that this was an official White House event and not a campaign rally, so it carries the full weight of a presidential visit. Also, there is no debate that the workers were coerced to attend. But really, "fact-checking" 30secs? You have now set a precedent. It's either all or nothing, no? Good luck when the disgruntled fireman returns!

"What is difficult for us moderators is to repeatedly read “facts” that are completely untrue." This is an astounding statement and a seemingly arbitrary and capricious intervention, especially in this time of trumpian mendacity. It's up to you to disprove the comment. Which will be difficult since it is all over the news. Better not cover the pResident in your paper either: In 928 days, (as of 8/5) President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/trump-claims-database/.
- Angie Valeria

Do you believe the comment made was true? If you do, just google the Shell story as I did.

"Angie should find something else to do instead of being on 30 seconds 24/7." Oh how I wish the irony wasn't lost on you.

30 seconds moderator. Are you telling us TheTrampLies lies? Who knew? Next you'll be telling us that Angie is neither a Hispanic nor a female but rather what he despises the most.............. a white male!

When someone, anyone, constantly lies about just about anything, can that person, man or woman, be trusted to ever be telling the truth about anything? Would you accept that tendency in your mother, father, brother, sister, spouse or child?

The "president" may not have personally threatened to withhold the workers' pay if they didn't attend his rally, but I don't doubt that he was not only aware of what was going on and may have even had a hand in it.
- Man from New Berlin

What kind of a president threatens simple workers to attend his racist event or they don't get paid, shows how low he is✓ Shell workers in Pennsylvania say they were told to either attend a recent Trump event, or not get paid
- TheTrampLies

I don’t usually do this, but I just wanted to make sure that I read this correctly. What you have stated as a true fact, is quite serious. That being that the President himself personally threatened these Shell employees. I know that you know this is not true. What is difficult for us moderators is to repeatedly read “facts” that are completely untrue. We ask you all to try to do better and to be correct with your “facts”.

RE:"Always an excuse. Ain’t that right Tramp! Just like years of excuses for the Bum and wild Bill! - Man from Norwich"...I agree, ALWAYS an "excuse" from the "Trampettes" to justify their maga position and support & nary a FACT or a smidgen of TRUTH; "Grab'em by the...", "evicy thy neighbor as it says in the "Good" book!

To the Moderator when you are reading all these comments that are being spewed on this so called forum, you have to get tired of it. I do not know if it is within your power, but how about shutting it down for one week.

" just go old school and keep their knees together? - Chris Tofer" I'd like to know which school you went to! Another trumpist 'Leave it to Beaver' idyllic 1950's mentality. Yeah, you're right. There were no abortions back then, you know, before Obama. Everything was peachy. No girls or women ever died or were maimed or sent away or shamed for the rest of their lives. Men were all responsible for their actions and treated women as equals.

Angie Honey you are so darn right I’m against abortion or flat out MURDER in my book especially if I have to pay for the results of somebody’s good time. Likewise the last I knew it took two to Tango. Or I’m sure in your book all these unwanted pregnancies are the result of male rape.

Angie. How about you invoke the gag rule and encourage people to just go old school and keep their knees together? “ yeah because men have no responsibilities in this. Thanks for helping trump lose LMAO! Anti-LGBT, anti-women, anti-brown, anti-black, anti- anyone who isn’t a straight old white male. But you’ve got the minority of racist bigots locked down. Good luck

"Angie. How about you invoke the gag rule and encourage people to just go old school and keep their knees together?" How about if you're against abortion then don't have one. Sorry, but your denial of socio-economic realities doesn't change anything.

"Then state that when you post it, not after someone calls you out!" That quote is an old chestnut, known to most with many variations and attributed to several people. I can't help that your education is incomplete. Try turning off the TV and cracking a book or a newspaper. Meanwhile, try to keep up.

EDITED FOR CONTENT: "women could lose access to birth control and other reproductive health services clinics that make abortion referrals... The new policy steers federal dollars toward anti-abortion, faith-based providers and bans all participating doctors from giving information about obtaining abortions, which critics call a “gag rule.” - Politico.
