Why Venezuela? Joking, right?

Tillerson is Cheney on steroids.

The proven oil reserves in Venezuela are recognized as the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels (4.72×1010 m3) as of 1 January 2014.

Stay tuned for Iraq 2.0. They will love us as their liberator!

And you think I am joking about the white supremacists? Not. The Alt Right is the next leading cause of accidental deaths in the USA.

Every 'real' southern home has at least one portrait of Robert E. Lee. Seriously. Migratory northerners can be discovered when the portraits include people like Lincoln or the American flag with all it's stars. Did the "Real Housewives of the South" leave that part out? Lee's name is tattooed on every 'real' southern woman's ass.

White nationalists and counter-protesters (click here) are expected to flood downtown Charlottesville Saturday as the Virginia city braces for the "Unite the Right" rally.
By noon, thousands are expected to gather in Emancipation Park, where barricades have been placed in proximity to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
The rally comes hours after a large group of torch-bearing white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus Friday night....

Then there is this wacko election in Alabama to replace what's his name, AG, Sessions. There are three Republican candidates running for the nomination and they are all these right wing extremist white men. All of them. There are at least 50 percent women in Alabama, most of them white and there are at least 30 percent minorities, but, the Alt Right rather their white guys.

LIBERAL BIAS! Liberal bias is everything other than hate. Remember now, God is the path. So is the Alt-Right's god full of hate? Why do Black churches burn?

...For alt-right activists, (click here) who occupy the rightmost flanks of a powerful conservative internet subculture, Google’s response to Mr. Damore’s memo was low-hanging fruit for mockery. But there is another reason that the alt-right’s opposition campaign appeared so quickly, with such well-practiced maneuvers.

For the last several months, far-right activists have mounted an aggressive political campaign against some of Silicon Valley’s biggest players. Extending their attacks beyond social networks like Facebook and Twitter, tech’s typical free-speech battlegrounds, they have accused a long list of companies, including Airbnb, PayPal and Patreon, of censoring right-wing views, and have pledged to expose Silicon Valley for what they say is a pervasive, industrywide liberal bias....

The biggest joke going is North Carolina's unemployment handouts that emphasize becoming drivers for Uber. Has everyone seen the average car in North Carolina? Hello? Would you get in it in fear it wouldn't make it to the destination?

...I fully intend (click here) to comply by all legal rules while filing for unemployment, so I understand that I have to report all part-time and self-employment income each week that I file. I also understand that this would likely reduce my unemployment benefit.

But here's the question: If I am legally self-employed with Uber while filing for unemployment, do I report my GROSS income from Uber, or my NET income after deducting expenses? And would I deduct actual expenses, or the much larger standard mileage discount?

(My state's unemployment web site does an extremely poor job of addressing this, and the phone number is voice-prompt hell.)...

Now, remember, people on unemployment have to report the places they look for work. Really? "Let's see, do I drive this next ride or go to that interview? I'll make money if I do the ride, but, I need one more place of employment for my reporting. Ah, heck, I need the ride to buy gas anyway to keep goin' on Uber. I probably won't get that job. I'll find another place to make application for my reporting instead. Wait a minute, will that put my mileage over the warranty I bought?"

There are few to none independent taxi drivers left in NC. The highest paid taxi driver in NC is in Winston-Salem with a salary of $32,712 per year. I suppose if a household has two drivers in a family they may be able to buy a house for their many children.

The biggest talk around town in the south is how to set aside enough land to atrract car makers to create jobs. What the south doesn't realize is, it takes a high school education to fill out the job application.

"The South Shall Rise Again." A person could really pity them if they weren't so full of hate. No mercy. This is the base of the Alt Right/All White.

The Alt Right in this video are Alt Right for generations, past and future. How many of these people have a marketable education? There are profound reasons companies do not locate in the south OR stay in the south. It is the people. There are few long term employers with stable product bases. The richer southerners with politicians in their pocket don't want the competition either. The richer (not wealthy) southern folks think having poor people with god in their heart is preferable than any other lifestyle. There is a reason why the soutern USA states are the largest recipients to the federal dollar and it isn't because they are empulating the values of New Jersey or it's Governor.

"We rather go without then give up our cultural values." Even if they are a drag on the USA's economy and standing in the world. Making "Trump Deals" for these folks is easy, just promise to get rid of every regulation that ever existed, including tort laws. The problem is even after the "Trump Violation of American Values Deals" there still aren't qualified employees among the natives. Trump is going to be looking for immigrants and/or transplants from other states, but, at least the state GDP will improve even if the people's lives don't.

There are no lazy Americans, there are "Trapped Americans." They all need health care to live a normal longevity. If they start to feel well without drug and/or alcohol and/or 'fat food' dependency they might even want an education with a desire for a quality of life no one in their families have had before.

Much credit to the southern African American community that works very hard to raise all boats and bring some of the most profound impoverished wellness and quality of life. Their churches are phenomenal centers of instilling the desire for clean living and improvement of life's definition. Prospective employers should begin their search for employees with the minority communities of the south, they are phenomenal.
