If capitalism is so great, why does it need to be bailed out by socialism every ten years?

soflo and board:

I have been singing the praises of Ms. Pressley ever since she was elected to Congress. She is an absolute BOSS, speaks truth to power, and I am a strong admirer.

But make no mistake, talking about her struggles with alopecia and then ultimately revealing her baldness was deeply moving and brave. You could see in her voice and demeanor how difficult it was for her at times. Your humble poster was damn near in tears as I realized what a deeply personal and momentous event that was for her.

God bless you, sistah Congresswoman Pressley. And I hope your story inspires women THROUGHOUT the Diaspora.

[There are now three separate threads on this page about Ayanna Pressley and her struggles with hair loss. But THIS thread begun by soflo was posted first. Would the board’s moderators and/or the author of the other two threads please delete them for clarity in perusing this page. Thanks.]

I SO ADMIRE THE STRENGTH AND COURAGE OF THIS WOMAN.  :nod:
ONE OF MY NEW YEAR's RESOLUTIONS WAS; NOT TO ENGAGE IN POLITICAL DISCOURSE WITH "SELF-DESCRIBED ASSHOLES" or "LIARS". I HOPE I AM ABLE TO KEEP IT.  :popcorn: (Posted on January 6, 2020) "Funny thing about getting older. Your eyesight may weaken, but you can see through people so much better."

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
