  1. This book was written by John Perkins. He worked for multi-national corporations for many years. He would help the big corps exploit third world countries---steal their natural resources and mineral wealth. This book helps explain why the third world countries are so poor and disadvantaged. Nobody will not be so quick to call them "Bad wordholes" after reading Mr. Perkins book. Thankfully, Mr. Perkins no longer works for these corporations and is trying to help the poor,, third world countries and the people in them. I wish him Godspeed.
  2. Why would anyone need a gun like this? It is not needed for hunting. It is not needed for self defense/home protection. The only thing it's good for is mass killings. This was a sad day for California.
  3. I read an article a few weeks ago about the history of the Electoral College. I don't remember all the details of the article. But, I do remember thinking the Electoral College needs to be abolished.
  4. Thank you for posting these sites. I think I'll check them out.
  5. No, are you?😏
  6. Do you remember the 2000 Presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore? Florida went against the will of the people. Oh wait. The Republicans had the Supreme Court decide that one for Bush. Sorry.
  7. So, what is the point in us regular citizens voting? If our voices don't matter in the long run, why bother? Why not just have the Electoral College choose the President?
  8. It prevents our elections from being decided by the majority. Which is exactly what the men who implemented it wanted. They didn't want the citizens to choose our President. So, they created the Electoral College to have ultimate control.
  9. Sounds like you got a smart 8 year old.
  10. During the colonial and antebellum period the Electoral College had a vital role in our elections. That is no longer true. We need to abolish the Electoral College.
  11. Yes, we should abolish it. And we should make it retroactive to 2016. πŸ˜„
  12. πŸ˜„Yes. Everything we see in the MSM is carefuly gone over before it is released to the public.
  13. Are you just now knowing that?
  14. Question: How many here think that there is a connection between the pillaging of third world countries and the caravans of people coming thru Mexico, wanting to get into the USA? Many of the people are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatamala. Did the big corps have a hand in destroying their home countries?
  15. Yes, it is great info. It helps me to understand our foreign policy better.
  16. I thought World AIDS Day was December 1st. President Bush died on November 30th.
  17. I have great admiration and respect for Michelle Obama. She was one of the best FLOTUS I've seen in my lifetime. Beauty. Brains. Class. Dignity. She has it all. I am currently reading her book, "Becoming". Great book.
  18. I am a lifelong California resident. I have visited several other states (Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma), but I wouldn't want to live in any of them. I love it here. Yes, the housing market is kind of expensive. But, there are many nice things here too. 1) Great colleges and universities. 2) State of the art hospitals; for adults and children. 3) Beautiful national parks (Yosemite, Sequoia) and amusement parks (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm). 4)Relatively cheap food since California is an agricultural state. One thing I don't recommend is to live in the cities. I live in a small town, surrounded by a rural area. And, it's helpful if you can speak Spanish, but it's not mandatory.πŸ˜„
  19. And don't say Lincoln freed them from slavery. We all know that was a political move. (Lincoln was a smart politician). OK. Tell me folks. What has the Republican party done for Blacks?
  20. I loved Martin Luther King. He was assassinated when I was 13 years old. I remember the day very well.
  21. When you get to be retirement age those 3 programs might become more important to you.
  22. 1) I am not a he, I am a she. 2) I am not a troll. ) The person I was posting to compared the programs LBJ started for poor people to being in slavery, so I compared paying taxes to being in slavery.
