Blowing the lid off the billionaires' big con - and its deadly link to the coronavirus pandemic

About 75 percent of Americans trusted the federal government to "do what is right" when polled during most of the last years of the Eisenhower administration and early years of Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency. In 2019, when the Pew Research Center released its most recent poll of public trust in the government, only 17 percent of Americans trusted their government. It's so bad that armed protesters have shown up nationwide to protest the "tyranny" of having to wear masks during a pandemic… and have been cheered on by the president of the United States and Fox News.

Hopefully, you can help your Trumpy friends understand, by sharing this short article with them.

Gun Lobby Shills Ask For More Surveillance Instead Of Needed Gun Control

The meme that I was hearing over and over after the Florida shooting, and I was yelling at the TV, the meme that they kept promoting that was making me so crazy was, "oh, if you see something, say something - we should have been able to see this coming." As if to say that only in the United States do we have people who have mental illness problems. This is just total crap.

Why We Can't Privatize Fire Fighters... Again
