Have people forgotten that Women lost freedoms?

The young have a burning and flooding world they don't want to live in?
That guns are a big deal to us all?
Our shit media makes no mention of our desires. Not a fucking of word of what could come.
Write us off at your own peril shit media. . We are not buying your fake look over here.

Joe will win big with the young and Women seeing to it.
The blue waters will rise and smother the red flames even in the South.
IMO.

are in line at TFG's rallies. They are "entertaining" because they are, well, not really sane.

The next group is politicians. Most of them live in a bubble, where they see donors and others in the political class...talking to ordinary people isn't really part of their lives, unless it is a minute or a handshake at an event that includes the unwashed masses. Yes, staffers may take calls from constituents, but that's an x in a column of support/don't support on X, Y, or Z issue.

The rest are the donor class, the people who give millions or more to super-PACs.

What that group wants vs. what us ordinary people want are entirely different. They (generally, there are outliers) believe that they deserve anything that they desire, but what they want most is to reap the benefits of our society without paying for any of it themselves.

They don't want to pay taxes, they want to pay workers as little as they possibly can get away with and they certainly don't want any sort of social safety net or a society that takes care of people. That would cut into the profit margins!

What I'm trying to say is that the media has very little idea as to what ordinary people want or think about.

I try to keep things short to get my point out there. We are much stronger than people think.

Probably harks back to Goebbels, and his son Bannon.
"Flood the zone"

Media stooges lap it up.
