Anyway, that guy’s a columnist for the Washington post, you couldn’t tell the difference between parody and reality.” Greg Gutfeld


Quote II

Quote III

Quote IV

But the more interesting idea here is that TikTok itself is spreading racism.” Campus Reform Senior Correspondent Addison Pummill

Is Elon Musk a bigot? He needs to remember who gave tax breaks on those damn EVs.

Elon Musk recently suggested that anyone over 70 years old should be barred from running for political office.

In a tweet on Thursday, the SpaceX and Tesla founder said: "Let's set an age limit after which you can't run for political office, perhaps a number just below 70."

While no specific lawmaker was mentioned in the tweet, the current president, Joe Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump are both over the age of 70. And Senator Bernie Sanders, who Musk has previously squabbled with, is 80 years old.

The answer isn't an age limit, it is Term Limits.

They often would tell their friends about me, and soon other parents were asking me to bake for their events. Before long a small business emerged in my kitchen.
