I agree with the jist of message, but I'm not sure I've met a black person that actually hates white people.

I think that these conducted to try to find ways to condition evidence theorists who are looking into conspiracy's and "reform" or "condition" these folks back into complacency.

It used to be easy to suppress evidence theorists before the internet, because they could be ignored. Now they are trying to understand them to better develop strategies.

They don't need the US navy. They've bought the US Congress, and US President.

China benefits from not having any dual-citizen Chinese Israelis in their senate and congress, or whatever their equivalent is called.

My brother was a manufacturing engineer for John Deere for about 5 years.

He would describe the serious quality issues that they had, and how they often shipped product that had defects of functional flaws. Also, in his opinion many of the aftermarket components were much better quality than John Deere's OEM.

This article does not surprise me at all.

"The jury also heard a great deal of evidence which exonerated James Earl Ray," Pepper said Thursday. "That should be made clear because there are spins coming out indicating that James was part of this conspiracy. That's not what the jury found or heard. They heard strong evidence that James was an unknowing patsy."

While I agree with much of what you're saying. It might help you and others more if you slightly adjusted your anger into a sense of empathetic pity.

These folks don't know what is wrong with the world. They don't blame the system. They blame themselves. That's why Trump was elected.

I'm guessing you're like me and want to do something about the system. Ok if my favorite Lincoln quotes is, "Do we not destroy our enemies when we make them out friends?".

Hate is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. Less vitriol. More compassion for potential allies. 👍

By the way. I looked up some of your music videos. Pretty good.. ;-)

Alexandria Ocasio -Cortez endorses Andrew Cuomo, Andrew Gillum gets buddy-buddy with Cory Booker, sadly the influence is going in the wrong direction. by Orangutan in politics

Corey Booker is likely being groomed for a 2020 presidential campaign. There aren't any other viable corporate Democrats, and he's a stretch at best. The machine has corrupted his soul. He was forced to sell out long ago, so he'll be dead in the water.

The corporate left vs. principled left has canibalised it's self.

Trump will likely win in 2020. :-/

Edit:. The corporate Clinton-esque Democrats are a cancer on the country.

The country deserves to FEEL THE BERN!!!
