    Can't see videos

    When I or someone else posts a video, I'm just seeing a black space. Never had that problem before that I can recall, and I don't know how to troubleshoot it.

    Right click, and you should be given the link to the video at the original location where it will work.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.
