It's a classic, and these ladies do it better than any other group I've heard in my life.

Trump should have gotten on Gab

 Truth Social wasn't going to be able to compete.  The field is just too crowded, and there's only so many people his personality was going to drag along with him.

“Truth Social’s monthly web and desktop visits reached a high of 11.5 million visitors in August 2022 but have been on the decline since then, falling to just 5.7 million in February,” according to Similarweb stats quoted in a Bloomberg report on Wednesday.

Twitter, Truth Social’s inspiration and rival, had 6.1 billion visits in the same timeframe. I wouldn’t even hazard a guess how people like me, who for work must keep multiple Twitter tabs open in Tweetdeck virtually 24/7/365, add up in that figure. Journalists and opinion writers don’t visit Twitter so much as we’re always there.

I write for a certain blog that generates more traffic than Truth’s social media platform does and for another one that’s closing in on it. To put it bluntly, a social media platform can’t thrive with blogger numbers.

When Twitter banned Trump in 2020, the founder of Gab Andrew Torba archived ALL of Trump's tweets and told Trump that he could have it all on Gab.  Trump decided that he could do it better himself.  As we're seeing, that's not quite the case.

I have nothing against Truth Social.  I just have no interest in using it.

Illegal Aliens bum-rushing the border

 Give me one good reason why we're not shooting these fucking criminals on sight?

A standoff between hundreds of migrants and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in riot gear Sunday afternoon blocked the Paso Del Norte international bridge connecting El Paso and the Mexican border city Juárez.

There were also temporary disruptions when groups of migrants showed up at two other border bridges in El Paso, a border protection spokesman said in a statement. Barricades were used at the Stanton Bridge from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and at the Bridge of the Americas from 2:45 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

At the Paso Del Norte Bridge, officers stood behind concrete and plastic barriers topped with barbed wire blocking the border at the middle of the top of the bridge before what appeared to be hundreds of migrants.

About 1:30 p.m., the border protection agency's Mobile Field Force, a riot control team, was deployed when a large group of migrants threatened to make a mass entry, the agency said. A special response team and U.S. Border Patrol agents assisted border protection officers.

Every one of these people constitutes a drain on the USA in some form or fashion.  We don't need them.  We don't want them.  Start shooting them as they cross, and you'll see the numbers dwindle pretty quickly.

And no, I'm not joking.  We're spending hundreds of billions of dollars a year on illegal aliens.  For no good reason.  Send them back. then start shooting anyone who crosses illegally.  I bet that would cut down on the drugs being shipped into this country at the same time.
