    Is that what you are suggesting?

    I needed to correct something...Silver not Gold...though gold is certainly relevant. It was gold according to non-canonical texts from St. Joseph of Arimathea, of whom I have always had an admiration for as he donated the crypt that Jesus was buried in. He was a Jewish wealthy citizen that was sympathetic to Jesus' cause and plight. A bit of an anomaly in the New Testament of the Bible...hard emphasis on New Testament because it was exactly what its name says.

    Only a dictator can leave death and destruction in their wake forever...like a President for life.

    Obviously, this would be the wrong thread.

    Why does American politics occupy a Finn's attention? Please, this is not a joke question.

    Also, please feel free to ignore me, there will be no offense taken.

    I really am finding text a very clumsy medium so, my posting skills are affected.

    Because I like to be aware of things and the politics of US affect a lot of things.

    Like Aragorn said in the other thread:

    Quote Originally posted by Aragorn View Post
    Because, like it or not, not only is the USA a military and financial-economic superpower, but its cultural influences ─ in combination with the information in our news reports, which, unlike in the USA itself, also look beyond our own borders ─ have very far-reaching consequences.

    The USA has always been very proficient at exporting both its culture and its problems.

    Wait until the fake news is not dead and buried but transmutated, die or transmute are options, quick or slow will be the leveler.

    Where is the concern for the immigrant girls in this country who were separated from their parents and 'lost track of'? Boys too? Where is the concern? What I've seen is a bunch of denial or active ignorance.
