    Your statement makes lots of sense. It reminds me of my friend Satya who once said "All delusions will be corrected". HE IS SPEAKING OF THE BIG PICTURE. I really trust that over "time" I will be cleared but I am excited to think it may be this lifetime. I think that all the energy being put forth to push a political party (of any kind) is a massive funnel and a waster of precious life force. I like DT's thread "good news". All the good news is apolitical, nonpartison and without borders.

    I am thinking seriously about moving abroad because US of A is filled by people who are like sparklers and sparklers are only for show.

    The bankers were too big to fail.

    It used to be that corporations had commitments to their communities. The laws were changed. Now they have commitment to only their shareholders, who do not live in the communities and who send most of their money out of the country.

    Corporate tax breaks don't help America. They do help the shareholders and bankers.

    I started a Deep State thread not long ago. The response was crickets. It seems the so-called Deep State only matters in the right context, i.e. rationalizing Trump and his actions.

    I also started a thread on the children being taken from their families and lost track of. Again, crickets.

    It seems that child abuse only matters in certain contexts, like locking up Hillary. But when the Trump Administration is implicated, eyes are looking the other way.

    To quote our Dear Leader:

    Sad.

    At least some of that may be attributed to the relatively small number of active participants on this board. Couple that with the thick skin needed to approach topics around human trafficking and even darker deeds which will poison the imagination of those so unprepared. As nap said, it hurts me to think about, but further, it makes me feel a deep, deep rage at those who would harm others (I say because I prefer not to evoke imagery of the evils being referenced).
    Sometimes God shines his magic light beam from outer space, and it works in mysterious ways.

    Matt Drudge called out Fox News for their callous response to the synagogue shooting. How upside down things have become.

    Jerusalem Post:
    JERUSALEM POST 50 MOST INFLUENTIAL JEWS: NUMBER 43 - MATT DRUDGE

    Born on October 28, 1966, he is the son of Reform Jews from the suburbs of Washington DC. He has spoken little of his connection to Judaism other than to refer to himself as “a failed bar mitzva.”

    No surprise...Trump is mad! He is now proposing changing the constitution by executive order which is something expressly forbidden by constitutional law. He was snubbed by literally everyone, both sides of the fence, in Pittsburgh. He is just about done...The talking assh*les are still defending him, but they can afford to do that...People with congressional (constitutional) responsibility cannot do so. Unless, they want to be complicit in treason.

    He knows he's going to fall after the midterms. He will be ascribed as guilty of a number of crimes. Theoretically, he is immune to prosecution, but impeachment is nearly inevitable.
