    The Cubans in the US still oppose this, because for some of them they actually saw in person what was going on in Cuba before fleeing. Some lost friends and relatives. But as soon as that embassy opens up in the US, then I expect them to start protesting daily against the Castro regime.

    Never was a big fan of soda. Fact is too many people drink that instead of water, I'm talking about 4+ cans or bottles daily. My beverage of choice is cold teas, carrot juice, fruit juice, and good old crystal clear water. When I have something with soda in it, its going to be with ice cream as a float.

    Too many people over drink the stuff.

    I would definitely be happy to see China become more environmentally considerate than they have been. The tech is available, just needs to be used and developed for improvement. Heck, if China had been environment friendly in the beginning I'd have a vast amount of respect for them regardless of the CCP. But I wonder how difficult its going to be for them to deal with the current mass poisoning of the land, air, and water in their region.

    Simply put, do they have a choice? The resounding answer is no... well not quite. One can always leave China and join the ROC in Taiwan.

    The question is, why would any white/asian/latino person want to?

    Hip hop "culture" is to blame. Just this morning omw to work I observed a young black male walking down the street with his earbuds on rapping out loud a N* loaded song. Whites/Asians/Latinos also listen to this exact same "music". I do remember the days when most rap songs were poetry with soul and meaning... not so any more.

    Honestly I would rather be a decendant of a slave here in USA today over a black man in Africa. They do have something to be thankful for.

    There are no "blacks" in Africa. Only Afrikaans in Africa. And no black American really wants to go live in Africa due to extremely low quality of living...and not to mention the freakin' bot flies, Islamists, corrupt officials, unstable governments etc (South Africa may be much more acceptable but still has a history). Only difference is my ancestors weren't given a choice to come to the US.

    I think the biggest issue with the US and race relations is the underlying racism. Thankfully there are a lot more inter-racial couples and children running around so this too will eventually fade. But see how long it's taken? Its the 2000s and we're still having to deal with these issues mostly in southern states.

    Steroids... That ape has been either hitting the gym pretty hard or someone's been giving him some of those muscle enhancing food supplements.

    Nobody on this planet would mind a truly peaceful rise by China. But as to how they're "rising" now? Not a chance in hell is anyone going to accept it with the CCP.

    Depends on situation for me. For a sleepover, futon. For permanent housing? BED. Spent nearly arm and a leg on a queen sized mattress and frame. Will be buying a twin for my 2nd bedroom and then add 2 futons for any extra sleepover guests.

    I'm really curious as to what they were using too? Seriously need to check the flammability of whatever they used. Things like this aren't supposed to happen if folks pay attention to what they're doing. Sad, and I hope they hold whoever was responsible for this accountable.

    Funny how blacks can say / use it candidly among themselves. Anywhere too.

    Not really, sometimes we call each other that if were really p'oed at them too. And I quote, "You dumb a$$ed n* wtf is wrong with you fool!" That usually means someone is about to get an a$$ whoopin'.

    It still has it's negative connotation. Just basically determined on how its used. I still don't like it though, but I and many others have tolerated a lot of other people using it on each other.... free speech and all that.

    Richard Pryor was probably the base origin of consistent usage outside of ye' olde southern insults though. But that was also because of the era and way he grew up. Ghettos, pimps, ho's, drugs, and much more blatant prejudice. He spoke what was on the minds of many at the time.

    The n-word, thanks to the idiots in my society (points finger directly at rappers) is now being used more consistently thanks to them by many races. Its been completely ignored the connotations it really has at it's roots. "Friends" call each other that because they believe they're "cool" because they hear the rappers constantly use it. In my state I've heard Caucasians call each other that, Hispanics, Latinos, and of course Afro-americans. The last time I was called the N-word was 5 years ago in its negative connotation by a car driving by full of either Caucasian or Hispanic young males. Note they didn't stop the car, but sped off.

    So thanks to "hip-hop" and gansta rap, they totally ruined our society for their arrogance. Like taking a dump on everything the previous generations had to fight for tooth and nail during civil rights demonstrations, civil war etc.

    In spite of the stupidity race relations are still very good, compared to a few decades ago. But as I said, we still have those "groups" that are fervently working behind the scenes for implementing their racist perspective just trying to be a lot less noticeable.

    Spying is spying. Only difference is the CCP is targeting privately owned corporations to hack. The US feds know that there will be constant hacking on our government.

    The maritime dispute on the other hand is a much clearer stance. That area doesn't belong to China.

    The Confederate flag should not come down because it is offensive to African Americans. The Confederate flag should come down because it is embarrassing to all Americans.

    Or It could be a constant reminder of the kind of people who still exist in this day and age. I'd rather it remain as a reminder than for it to be gone. Besides, banning it would just encourage those supremacist idiots to wave it all the more. They'd love to have it as their ultimate symbol for "rebellion" and olde civil war "glory" and "uprising". The flag is just a flag.

    Those that take offense to some cloth with designs on it instead of the bad people that wave it is just ridiculous. I've seen this flag and cloth being sold in my state (CO) with the exact same design, and many of us don't care.

    On one hand there are the neo-nazis, and on the other the KKK. Both of which have their own symbols that do not detail this particular design.

    As I said, they're trying redirect focus to the flag by itself instead of the very real threat of the white supremacist groups acting violently, and oppressing others from positions of power. I've been on the receiving end of it myself as well as many of my relatives plus we've had some fairly recent issues in my state with them.

    Demonic forces at work full time with these guys. Those that say evil is just a matter of perspective, surely must have gotten a wake up call by now.

    Well at least he apologized. While he will receive the ultimate penalty for his crime, he wasn't arrogant enough to just rub it in like the many other Islamists out there in the world would. Time in prison and dealing with the other convicts there must have softened him up a lot. I've noticed a lot of young people have been throwing their lives away from doing stupid crap lately.

    Abstaining from food and water? Hydration is the most important thing during high heat. Even those who observe Lenten drink water. If there was enough water, then there is no excuse to not drink it since the body can not live without it.

    Very sad news for such a beautiful facility. I just sincerely hope this was not arson. If not then its a terrible way to die.

    I just love how others love to tell us how black society is supposed to feel about things instead of just asking how we feel about things. For well over 100 years... I do have quite a few relatives in NC. They don't give a damned. I'm sure some do, but as I said, focus on what's important. The flag ain't it.

    And people wonder why we get the label, "World police". Its not like we want it, but we have things like this happen. Didn't happen in US territory, and didn't happen in California. Just an abuse of the US legal system.
