September 23, 2020 08:42 Posted in: Culture, Elections - I don't hate anyone, but hypocritical politicians provoke disgust, disdain, and distrust when they blame Trump for everything. They have no shame and display feigned anger when they try to shift responsibility from their own failures to Trump. A perfect example is New Orleans, Mayor LaToya Cantrell.

September 20, 2020 01:12 Posted in: Culture, Trump - President Donald Trump has been nominated to receive the Nobel Prize for his work with Israelis and Muslims in the Middle East.

Blacks Owned Other Blacks, Will They Get Reparations?
September 19, 2020 11:56 Posted in: Culture, Policy - The passage of local reparations in places like Evanston, Illinois last fall, and Asheville, North Carolina more recently are worrisome on many levels, not least of which because they invite potential for inciting even further racial division.

WARNING: Mob Rule is Frenzied Rage and Void Of Conscience, Fueled Only By Your Complicity
