Mark Fiore Blame the Flag

https://www.markfiore.com/mark-fiore-blog/cartoons/blame-the-flag.html


I can't post the video but Mark was basically saying we can't stop now that the flag has been taken down.

Maybe a tinfoil hat theory. BUT if that TPP part about privitized sections being stuck privatitzed.

Remember a few years back some counties privatized their fire department?





Some counties and towns have talked about privatizing police departments/sheriff departments because taxes aren't able to pay for these services.

IF this part of the TPP is true and says once you privatize a public service you can't change it back to a public service you would basically have a legal thug gang that could be worse than the police abuse issues now.


Imagine your city privatizing your police department and now instead of Taxes you have to pay a monthly service charge. Imagine if that service charge is broken into our regular service, our gold service ( for a little more money) and Platium service (more money) now imagine you have regular service and your neighbor who has a grudge against you has the best service and decides you are making too much noise or doesn't like you are having a birthday party in your back yard and they basically call this privatize police department. ....

Stupid question What exactly did Taylor Swift do that people are praising her.

I have heard some people talking about it but I don't know what she did that some liberal talk show host are talking about her.

Is it true that the TPP has a passage stating that once something goes private like a prison or

utility it can't be un-privatized.


I saw it from a wikileak leak of what the TPP entailed. I can't find the info.

Adopted Woman Raised as Black Finds Out at Age 70 That Her Birth Parents Were White

https://gma.yahoo.com/adopted-woman-raised-black-finds-age-70-her-195301437--abc-news-parenting.html

Verda Byrd spent the past seven decades of her life as a black woman, but at age 70, she discovered a shocking family secret her parents took to their grave that she's recently made peace with -- she was born white.

Byrd, now 72, was adopted as a baby in 1943 by her black parents, who never told her that her biological parents were actually white, she said, explaining that she only uncovered the truth in 2013 about her birth after she went on a search for her biological parents' history.

"It was overwhelming," she told ABC News today. "You cannot erase 70 years of your life and just accept what the papers say instantly. It's like 70 years pass by, and in a blink of an eye, you’re a different race."

President Obama just proved my point.

A few days ago I posted this:

All anyone is talking about is that he used the n-word BUT no one is talking about the content behind it.


I stated in the post that political correctness is harming our ability to get at the root of racism, sexism and so on. We need to get past these kneejerk reactions and whining it was used but not the history and content on the words


We will never overcome this issue.


Yes it is fiction but when we look at the facts of our history ...





And yet Wayne Le Pierre wants to blame the victim mentality.
