My buddy moved here from Jamaica, he said he was shocked at the culture he was living in in Miami... (He was still in high-school so he was stuck).
Once old enough, he moved up here to New England. Said all the kids just hang around, drink quarts, do crimes. He went to college, got a great job and is doing amazing today w/  his own family...  Respectful/awesome guy...

From what I’ve seen Jamaicans despise American blacks.

This is 100% correct. I have a buddy from Ghana and he is a great guy and he hates American blacks. Something about America turns blacks into savages.

These are people who got sold down the river by fellow Africans. They weren’t sending the best and the brightest over here.

The mistake was not sending them back.

You must have been watching another debate.   Once Newsom told Desantis be wasdown 41 points in Florida and that he would be announcing Trump as the nominee in a few months , it was pretty much over with.

DeSantis is  finished

Which had absolutely ZERO to do with the debate…..
As proclaimed, Newsom walked away with the Victory. DeSantis was called out on the higher murder rate in Florida, his covid flip flopping, his racist censorship. Newsom basically slapped the flailing midget around, brilliantly countered all of DeSantis's lies with undeniable statistics. Newsom showed the country why he will indeed be POTUS: the poise, the intelligence, the charisma. The best part is when Newsom declared that DeSantis will be endorsing Trump in a few weeks, causing the dwarf another of many meltdowns last night. Bravo Gavin. Bravo.

We have enough trolls on here. Go away.
One of my best friends growing up was well trained in BJJ, TKD, boxing and Muay Thai; we trained MT together for 7 years. He boxed in the junior Olympics. His father (and him) were Marines and his dad thought him to be a total badass.

He was an angry man who loved to fight people.

And he was ~165 at 5'8" in his mid 20's.

I remember when we would roll out to night clubs or bars in our 20's and he ALWAYS found someone to fight, it was his thing. Half the time he picked the biggest gorilla muscle head bouncer in the club and picked a fight with him.

He used to put these dudes on their asses with 2-3 kicks or punches, every, single, time. Had a mean uppercut that he landed all the time.

It was almost hilarious how he beat the piss out of dudes way heavier and even taller than him.

We sparred together for over 10 years and no matter how big and strong i got, he always let me know he was better. I'd land a good punch/kick and he'd light me up instantly with a smile on his face. He was so fast and hid his striking well, half the time i never even saw what hit me. But he backed off and played even most the time just to get in a good sparring session.

That's why i laugh at BBer's who think they can fight because they have steroid muscles. Chances are these guys don't hit half as hard as they think they do and would be out cold with one good punch from a well-trained boxer. I remember almost getting knock out cold by my friend with 16oz gloves on.

The only way to get good at fighting is to fight a lot. That's it.

Bag work is silly; if you are wanting to actually fight someone you spar.

Ever get a parsh while this stud was whooping your ass?

Bank Executive Destroys New York’s Case Against Trump in Loan Case: ‘Not Unusual’

A Deutsche Bank AG executive told a court in New York on Tuesday that it is not unusual for loan clients to overstate their net worth, and that the bank does its own due diligence in determining eligibility for loans.

Another executive testified that the bank had benefited from its business relationship with Trump and had wanted to continue that relationship — all of which runs against Attorney General Letitia James’s civil fraud case against Trump: there was no one harmed by alleged overestimates of his worth.

Trump faces the first case ever brought in New York in which a borrower is being sued for fraud when no one is claiming actual harm. The state is seeking a $250 million fine against Trump, and wants him to be forced to give up control of his businesses.

Judge Arthur Engoron, an elected Democrat, issued a summary judgment that Trump was liable before Trump was ever able to mount a defense. The current phase of the trial is simply about the penalty. But it is undermining the state’s basic allegations.

Bloomberg News reported:

David Williams, who worked on at least one of three loans Deutsche Bank made to Trump in the years before he was elected president, testified Tuesday that it’s “atypical, but not entirely unusual” for the bank to cut a client’s stated asset value by 50% and approve a loan anyway, as it did with Trump.

Deutsche Bank, which loaned Trump hundreds of millions of dollars for properties in Miami, Chicago and Washington, cut his stated net worth in 2011 and 2012 from about $4.2 billion to $2.3 billion when evaluating his loan requests, according to internal bank credit memos used as evidence in the case. The same documents show the bank approved the loans anyway because it expected them to generate a profit based on Trump’s history of successful developments and other criteria.

“As part of our due diligence, we subject a client’s asset value to adjustments,” Williams said. “It’s part of our underwriting process we apply it to every client regardless of what’s reported.”

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley of George Washington University observed:

The evidence shows that banks made money on these loans, which were paid off either early or on time. In fact, none of the banks complained about the Trump organization’s estimations, which were accompanied by a warning that the banks should not rely on those estimates.

Moreover, James is seeking to kill a corporation once viewed as iconic in New York, not just by denying the certificates for the Trumps to do business in the city but by imposing $250 million in penalties for money that no one actually lost.

Justice Engoron seemed irritated by the testimony, however, and when Trump counsel asked why the bank was so eager to secure future loans, Engoron snapped back: “They’re trying to make money. Why wouldn’t they be interested?”

Trump has said that the civil case against him, like federal criminal cases in Florida and Washington, DC, and state criminal cases in New York and Georgia, are simply motivated by politics.

James was elected on a specific promise to use the courts to pursue Trump.

LOL...he seems to be doing just fine in the USA.

He is brilliant but too weird and immature for my taste. I am happy to be a Tesla shareholder but would consider myself a fool to purchase shares of Twitter at this point. Wrong fit for him.

I was hoping to receive support for my boneheaded blunder. Instead, I received a proper scolding. I’ve got nothing else to say. I just want to eat my meat.

I support you, Rambone.
