About Me

If an H-1b has an American accent, they are probably not an H-1b. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.

Man Designs An Off-Road "Wheelchair" So That His Wife Can Go Places She Never Imagined

Man Designs An Off-Road “Wheelchair” So That His Wife Can Go Places She Never Imagined, It’s Now Up For Mass-Production


Cambry has been restricted to the pavement for most of her adult life. She’s paralyzed and gets around in a wheelchair. So, trying to help her go more places, her then-boyfriend Zack Nelson spliced together two electric bikes with a seat in the center. And it worked. Cambry said she experienced a whole new level of freedom with it. Not only could she overcome — or should I say, overdrive — obstacles that seemed impossible before, she could do miles without her shoulders getting sore.

Fast forward a year, Cambry and Zack are married and they’re starting to mass-produce the vehicle they call ‘Not-a-Wheelchair’. Throughout that time, the couple built upon the original design, making it a reliable off-roader.

According to the couple, when choosing an adaptive off-roader, people have a few options but basically, but they either cost as much as a car or are super slow. So they put their heads together to try and build something that’s quick and light with a super long range. But getting it done wasn’t easy.

“The toughest challenge when developing ‘Not-A-Wheelchair’ is the price. We wanted to create something that is affordable for everyone. Finding quality components, and a simple enough design at the cheapest price possible took quite a bit of time,” Zack told Bored Panda. “But I think we have something now that everyone will be able to enjoy, at a fraction of the cost of other ‘off-road wheelchairs’ currently on the market.”

Very cool

'Karen In The Wild' Spastically Rage-Dances During Racist Rant Against Two Girls For Picking Berries


Twitter user Sara (@Pashandisara) shared a video on Twitter that showed an unknown White woman doing a bizarre dance and telling Sara and her friend to “go back to where you came from” after they picked berries off a tree.


The woman said:

“I don’t like to see people wrecking it.”

The girls responded:

“We’re not wrecking it. There are so many berries.”

The Karen then begins mocking the girls and spastically dancing at them.

Picking berries while brown is now a deportable offense. Being born here doesn't make a brown person any less "from somewhere else".

I've been stealing jobs away from Americans my whole life despite being a born and raised American citizen so I've run out of fucks to give.

Trump administration lent a troubled company $700 million. The company was worth only $70 million

The Trump administration just lent a troubled trucking company $700 million. The company was worth only $70 million


New York (CNN Business)The US Treasury is giving a $700 million loan to YRC Worldwide, a troubled trucking company that warned in May it was in danger of going out of business.

That's an enormous sum for a company whose stock had plunged 27% this year and was worth only $70 million as of Tuesday's close.
Long-term competitive problems had taken the company's stock down 85% over the last five years. But shares of YRC (YRCW) more than doubled in value in pre-market trading on the news of the bailout.

US taxpayers will end up owning 30% of the company's stock as part of the loan agreement.

The loan is not part of the federal CARES Act meant to help small businesses. Instead, it is meant to provide help to businesses critical to national security. Treasury's statement said the loan was justified by the fact that the company provides a majority of the trucking services moving pallet-sized shipments of freight for the US military, a segment of the industry known as "less-than-truckload" or LTL.

"Treasury's determination was based on a certification by the Secretary of Defense that YRC is critical to maintaining national security," said Treasury in its statement.

We can always count on Republicans to use our tax dollars efficiently unlike those Democrats who always waste it on fraud and abuse.
