    In the 70s I rode a bus to school in Washington. So...in theory I was "bussed". She's probably just stretching the truth a little for her agenda.

      This was my first thought as well. Of course, she may no understand the term "bussing" in that context, too. I refuse to underestimate either their arrogance or ignorance. ;)

    As a Democrat VP, she can make up whatever she wants to fit the narrative she wants. Biden did as VP and did so all his career. Biden is now the Liar in Chief and he is well known for appropriating other people's stories to fit his narrative. Just about all lifelong career politicians do so. But Democrats have refined the skill to an artform.

    I worked with a (much younger) guy who had been bussed in IIRC 5th grade. At the time, he just accepted it as face value.
    HOWEVER, as an attempt at integration (my friend being white and Jewish), it was less than successful. Mainly, the pupils on the bus make triends during a one hour bus ride twice a day. Who'd have thunk it!?!?

    Where you been? Don't you know it's okay for her to lie, she's a democrat? They also take no responsibility for anything that comes out of their mouths, or for their actions. Another twit out of California, maxine waters, just proved that. They took no action against her for trying to incite more rioting and trying to instruct a jury in a murder case. What a farce this country is becoming..

    Ummm, well no, she's probably not lying on this particular comment. Bussing was used to bring the poor kids to the schools in the wealthier neighborhoods.

    When I was a kid Norwalk had probably a dozen elementary schools, Each school was attended by three types of children:
    1) Walkers -- lived within ~3/4 mile of the school
    2) Equal Opportunity -- lived within one or more of the low-income housing developments aka 'the projects' and were loaded on the bus and driven 30 minutes in traffic to the school all the way across town.
    3) Bus Riders -- lived >0.75 mi from the school and were picked up by the 80% full busses for a short 2-5 minute ride to school.

    I was a Bus Rider. I lived 0.8 mi from the school.

    as an aside:

    One time while boarding the bus I was jabbed in the leg with a pin. The girl who stabbed me proudly displayed the pin with my blood on it. The next day when I boarded the bus, I stopped, and told her if she stabs me again I would but her face through the window. There was a lot of animalistic 'whooping' the bus driver asked what was going on. I said I don't want to get stabbed with a pin again. The driver looked at the girl, she froze, and I walked past. I never saw her again.

      I don't think Harris would have qualified as a 'poor' kid. Her parents were exchange students at Berkeley when she was born. But how did a person from India and one from Haiti produce an African American?

        I really can't comment on that. In Norwalk at the time, they wanted to buss some of the affluent kids to the old decrepit schools across town.

        The overwhelming response from those parents, was: then we won't send our children to school.

        The Progressive-Socialists backed down.

        There was a time when people were not afraid to assert that the government worked for them. I think this is why the Democrats LOVE illegal aliens, The bureaucrats can cow the poor, the ignorant, and the weak minded.

        If the Collectivists would simply keep to themselves and only impose their will on those who want to be collectivists I wouldn't care.

        But since the Collectivists keep trying to impose their misguided rules on those of us who are individualists, I find myself pushed closer & closer to the wall.

      Sounds like when I hit a bully frightening little kids didn't stop it until I hit him over the head with my baton. I taught twirling and I could wield that baton. Got his attention.

    This is the same person who despite being half-Indian and half-Jamaican claims to be a "black" American.

    Asking if any Democratic politician is an outright liar is to answer your own question. Unfortunately, all Democratic politicians are outright liars in today's day and age and I can think of no exceptions - just some who are worse than others.

    We had bussing (it was called "desgregation") in Louisville, KY from 1975 to about 1990, though I'm not sure exactly when it ended. I was 10 when it started, so not sure about the SCOTUS ruling and how they got around it. I remember there was alot of protesting, etc that went on at that time.

    Meh... That's nothing. My dad regularly told me about how he had to walk 3 miles to school, uphill (both ways) in snow that was 2-3 feet deep.

    The short answer for Harris being a liar is a resounding YES!!! Start with our Dem Candidate from Hawaii (Tulsi Gabbard's) comments and investigate from there

    I am 62 and I remember that there were no poor black children in our school system, so they bussed a bunch of poor white children from the old north end to the south end of the city. I was one of them.

    Biden and Harris are political puppets, put in there to do the bidding of the far leftists and get rid of Trump. I dont even listed to what these creatures say- its all lies and propaganda.

    I was on those same Bay Area busses ā€˜72-ā€˜73. SCOTUS may very well have struck down bus integration. Berkeley continued to practice it. Iā€™d assume so did Oakland.
