    Jamaica's diverse ethnic roots is reflected in the national motto 'Out of Many One People'. Most of the population of 2,812,000 (July 2018 est.)[11] are of African or partially African descent, with many being able to trace their origins to the West African countries of Ghana and Nigeria.[71][110] Other major ancestral areas are Europe,[111] South Asia, and East Asia.[112] It is uncommon for Jamaicans to identify themselves by race as is prominent in other countries such as the United States, with most Jamaicans seeing Jamaican nationality as an identity in and of itself, identifying as simply being 'Jamaican' regardless of ethnicity.[113][114] A study found that the average admixture on the island was 78.3% Sub-Saharan African, 16.0% European, and 5.7% East Asian.[115] Another study in 2020 showed that Jamaicans of African descent represent 76.3% of the population, followed by 15.1% Afro-European, 3.4% East Indian and Afro-East Indian, 3.2% Caucasian, 1.2% Chinese and 0.8% other.[116] Found in 2 minutes here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamaica#Ethnic_origins

  3. You know the rules: If you self-identify as "right-wing" or "conservative", then anything you don't like must be part of the left-wing.

    Bill Maher predicted Harris on his show 11 days ago.
  6. First, people with jobs don't need relief; It is the people without jobs who need it. The money going into Social Security / Medicare / Medicaid this week, came out of payroll taxes last week. So this is a quick way to bankrupt the whole system. Completely asinine.

    I'd hold off a couple weeks before buying. You will probably get a better deal from his widow.

  9. Damn, you and I think alike! I was just composing a post using that phrase, when I saw you beat me to it.

  13. Trump's Yosemite gaffe brings towering sales to National Museum of American Jewish History The museum has had a camp-themed t-shirt reading “Yo Semite” — a play on Yosemite National Park — on sale since 2011, and it wasn’t typically a big seller. The museum usually sold around 100 of the shirts annually, Kreider said. In the last three days, it has sold about 1,500 shirts, she said. The shop website even crashed at one point due to a spike in traffic, she added. Source: https://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphia/news/2020/08/07/trump-yo-semite-shirts-national-museum-american.html
  14. The back story on how that ship and its cargo wound up in Beirut's port. What a clusterfuck. https://www.9news.com.au/world/beirut-explosion-former-sea-captain-delivered-explosives-by-ship/8a2c6207-de53-4ae7-8ceb-a1c4fa480df8
  15. Just do a google search for "celebrities dyslexia" and you find a hell of a lot of successful people who made it on their own w/o inheriting Daddy's money, and w/o becoming grifters. A couple examples:
  16. My old man was an NRA member. I was an NRA member up until they started bringing in nutjobs like Ted Nugent and Glenn Beck as featured speakers at the annual convention. That was when I had enough and quit. I don't recall what year that was.
  17. Todays column by Heather Cox Richardson is entirely about the NRA. This one sentence really stands out: In 2015, the NRA had a surplus of almost $28 million. By 2018, it was running a $36 million deficit. Holy shit! Source: https://www.facebook.com/heathercoxrichardson/posts/2376404872503565
  18. I would put money on it. Back in 2016 Samantha Bee even did a show which compiled evidence that he was illiterate. She interviewed a bunch of people who had worked with Trump, and video from a deposition where he couldn't read a document. Having already read an article from Tony Schwartz who mentioned he had never seen a book in any of Trump's offices, that made sense. I was quite surprised when it later became apparent that Trump could actually use a teleprompter. Then it later occurred to me that dyslexia could explain everything.
  19. John Cleese offers another version of the interview:
  20. Yes, Colorado is building a wall, and we're making New Mexico pay for it!
  21. Well, this is the same idiot who visited Paradise, California after the fire, and pronounced it "Pleasure". https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2018/nov/19/pleasure-what-a-name-trump-confused-over-fire-hit-town-paradise-video
  22. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/08/06/large-ammonium-nitrate-stores-australia-cause-localresidents/ Residents in and around Newcastle, Australia, have expressed fears about the town’s vast stockpile of ammonium nitrate – which could be almost four times bigger than the amount that exploded in Beirut.
  23. WaPo: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/nra-lapierre-ny-attorney-general/2020/08/06/8e389794-d794-11ea-930e-d88518c57dcc_story.html The group’s bitter internal battle burst into public view in April 2019 at the NRA’s annual convention in Indianapolis, when then-NRA President Oliver North was forced out by LaPierre after pressing for an internal financial review. So apparently, Oliver North was the good guy in that fight. Let that sink in.
