Americans: healthcare please

Government: Sorry did you say a new military base in northeastern Syria?

Americans: no, healthcare

Government: Alright you drive a hard bargain but here's a new military base in northeastern Syria.

Sorry we're not going to be able to do the $2000 checks thing, or the cancelling student debt thing, or the $15 minimum wage thing. Would you accept payment in the form of social media "dunking" on Senate Republicans instead?

Biden is so endearingly befuddled in his old age it's easy to forget how many children he's killed.

Electing a new US president doesn't change the movie, it just changes the soundtrack.

Abusive narcissists are just as motivated to acquire allies as they are to acquire victims. They're often well-liked in the circles they move in, because the clever ones work hard on manipulating the way they are publicly perceived. This is also the case with the US empire.

Things that should be done in response to the Capitol riot:

Another EXCELLENT article by Caitlin Johnstone.

THANKS for your time and care for people.

I read somewhere from every tax dollars collected almost half goes to military establishments which have brought nothing but killing, destructions and misery to many parts of the world, not only to Syria.

Afghan people are suffering. Illegal sanctions which violate international norms must be lifted.

Why hurt Cuban people? Why hurt people of countries that disagree with bombings and stealing?

Biden will NOT be a better President. He was elected because more people did not want Trump. Look at the past of his cabinet picks.

Wars will continue. Destructions will continue.
