52…? Nifty United States!

Democrats are fired up to take back the Senate, and big changes could be on the way if it happens.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said “everything is on the table” if Democrats win the Senate majority, including granting Puerto Rico and Washington D.C statehood.

“I’m not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing. We are going to get a whole lot done. And as I’ve said, everything, everything is on the table,” the New York Democrat said on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Wednesday, via the New York Post.

He also said that Senate Democrats are “using all the tactics [they] can” to slow down or block the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

When asked about the possibility of making Washington and Puerto Rico states, Schumer confirmed that literally, anything is possible.

“I would — believe me, on D.C and Puerto Rico, particularly if Puerto Rico votes for it, DC already has voted for it and wants it. I’d love to make them states,” he said.

With the election only 33 days away, Democrat candidates are doing all they can to defeat their Republican competitors.

And if they accomplish their goal, the “50 nifty United States” may be no more….

    Don’t forget American Samoa and Guam. Maybe they could make some of the islands in the Hawaiian area into states as well.

    Hi, Leo…just a little laugh for you, I remember singing Fifty Nifty United State in chorus in high school, and to this day I can name all of the 50 states in alphabetical order, I have to sing it when I do, but I can do it…LOL The downside is my voice isn’t what it used to be due to damage to damage to my vocal cords, so my grandchildren laugh like the dickens when I sing. I just have to say I’m so very proud of you! It took such courage what you did and I’m truly impressed! Love ya, Leo!

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
