    Problems at Covington High

    The kid should have thought it out better… But I highly doubt he put paint on and said hey, “ I’m gonna look like a negro tonight!” It looks like the white paint was put on so that people can see his eyes and mouth clearly as an intimidation tactic. For example Vemon who has large white eyes and large grin revealing white teeth. I’m just getting tired of how everyone is automatically assuming the worst. Pretty soon the media will be looking for this kid demanding an explanation or he will come forward and have to explain himself during a spirit game.

    This shouldn’t be an issue. It’s a black out for a basketball game.

    I'm not going to defend the way he uses his words but I feel he has accomplished a lot that the media fails to acknowledge and only focus on the negative things or what is misconstrued. Under Trump, Congress passed historic tax cuts. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, for example, Is the first major one in 30 years Allowed us to have a record surplus of $214 million in April. Had 507 companies announce bonuses, increases, and new investments. Businesses have invested $482 billion into new American projects. 4.8 million workers, 3.7% of all workers, in fact, received a bonus, wage increase, or other boost due to Trump’s Act. $1.5 trillion were saved from being payed for single households. American families received $3.2 trillion in tax cuts and child tax credit doubled. The education system’s standard nearly doubled under the Act. Repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate. The bill provided a 20% deduction for small businesses, or $415 billion And finally, it lowered the corporate tax rate from 35%, the highest in the developed world, to a more respectable 21% The GDP went up in record swathes. 2017 had an exact 10% growth in GDP. In 2018 it had a 2.8% growth just in the first quarter. President Trump is unleashing record numbers of economic growth and jobs. Unemployment rate fell to 49-year-low. The manufacturing industry had 300,000 new jobs. 337,000 construction jobs were introduced and the standards have rose dramatically. Fourteen states have record low unemployment rates. African-Americans have the lowest unemployment rates in their entire existence in America. Job openings reached 6.6 million, the highest number in history. Those dependent on food stamps fell 6.2%. The Dow Jones hit record highs no less than 80 times under President Trump, including closing at 26,000 points for the first time in history. $5 trillion in wealth has been accumulated. Economic confidence rebounded to record highs. The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index rose in November 2017 to a 17-year high of 129.5. The National Association of Manufacturers’ Outlook Index had the highest annual average in its history. Small business optimism has sustained record-high levels under President Trump according to the National Federation of Independent Business. Trump signed an executive order expanding apprenticeships. Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum to prioritise STEM and computer science education. $300 million has been raised. Trump prioritised the economic development of women, lending $500 million to women-owned businesses. Since taking office, President Trump has advanced trade deals that protect American workers. Days after taking office, the President withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and agreement. President Trump's Administration is working to defend American intellectual property from China's practices through a range of actions. The President improved the KORUS trade agreement with the The Republic of Korea, which will allow more U.S. automobile exports to South Korea with lower tariffs and increase U.S. pharmaceutical access to South Korea. American agriculture has gained access to new markets under President Trump. The Longest Consecutive Positive Monthly Job Growth on Record - Total payroll employment grew by 213,000 in June 2018 (18,000 over forecasts) led by gains in professional and business services, education and health services, and, once again, manufacturing. This is the longest consecutive, positive monthly job growth period on record (93 months). Wage growth soared at its fastest pace since the Great Recession” and the unemployment rate held “near a generational low” of 3.9 percent. Immigration and Security Whether you like it or hate it, President Trump called on a Southern border wall, closed legal loopholes, ended chain migration, and ended visa lotteries. He also pulled us out of the Global Compact on Migration. President Trump rescinded the Deterred Action for Parents of America. Under President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security announced the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement. 110,568 illegal, undocumented immigrants, which were not applying for citizenship or making an effort were detained. $98 million was spent on law enforcement for cities across America. Said law enforcement also can now use surplus defence equipment to further help law. 4,000 MS-13 gang members were arrested. President Trump signed three executive orders to crack down on international crime organisations. $1.6 billion was spent on border control. ICE also got funded 10% more. Federal agents seized a million pounds’ worth of narcotics…one million. Say illegals aren’t bad? Foreign Policy He took action to protect America’s steel, harmed by unfair trade. The President exercised his authority to impose a 25 percent global tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent global tariff on aluminium imports in order to protect our national security. The tariffs on steel and aluminium are anticipated to reduce imports to levels needed for domestic industries to achieve long-term viability. As a result, these industries will be able to re-open closed mills, sustain a skilled workforce, and maintain or increase production. The strengthening of our domestic steel and aluminium industries reduces our reliance on foreign producers. President Trump is helping us to withdraw from the unfair Trans-Pacific Partnership. Re-negotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement are still underway to modernise the deal so that all countries benefit. South Korean companies announced 64 projects that will invest more than $17 billion in the U.S. over four years and will purchase $58 billion in goods and services. Foxconn announced its investment of $10 billion in Wisconsin to build a factory that will employ thousands of workers directly, and up to 22,000 workers indirectly. Toyota and Mazda announced a $1.6 billion investment that will go toward a new manufacturing plant in the U.S., creating an estimated 4,000 jobs. At the White House, Broadcom Limited announced they were moving their headquarters back to the United States, bringing potentially $20 billion in annual revenue. President Trump and King Salman of Saudi Arabia oversaw the signing of a historic $400 billion in deals between U.S. and Saudi companies. To defend U.S. national security interests, President Trump blocked a foreign company from acquiring a U.S. business for only the fourth time in history. Since President Trump was sworn into office, the Department of Commerce has initiated 79 antidumping and countervailing duties (AD/CVD) investigations. The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) self-initiated a Section 301 investigation into whether Chinese policies, acts, and practices related to technology transfer, licensing, and intellectual property are unreasonable or discriminatory. This is the first use of Section 301 since 2001. The Treasury Department and State Department put new sanction rules to channel economic activity away from the Cuban government, particularly the military, and towards the people of Cuba.

    Bad week for the media

    There is a longer video where students clearly react in shock to the kids remark. Christopher Bouzy is choosing to ignore it.

    Brown is a liability on the court when it comes to defense. I can count 3 different times when he failed to call out a screen and his teammates get clocked. Especially Jazz Johnson.
