Just to let you know that when you present "news" with a nut dissecting nonsense scriptures I turn it off.

strange when that pundit was talking about Pinochet, he doesn't mention the pivotal role of the CIA and Milton Friedman using Chile as a testing ground for their economic policy of a totally unhindered free market which resulted in high inflation and high unemployment. you think that would be something to mention.

Sick Out response from teachers over COVID era conditions is something that should have been ongoing for the last 20 years. "Smaller Class Sizes" to ease and protect?? What about smaller Class Sizes to EDUCATE or children?

52:20 is from decades of dogmatic ideologies that came about from religion and the science of eugenics.

This is when #BlueMAGA rigged the nomination process to endorse Biden. Something that the GOP didn't even do in 2016 against Trump.

Biden is being used for a path to a contested convention. If he's not the outright nominee for the general; as everything about him is manufactured. When he loses in the general to Trump. They'll use Bernie supporters as the fall bros we who will vilified for pointing out his weaknesses in policies and pointing out mental decline to ensure millions are disenfranchised. It'll be a win win for the establishment again without any self reflection like 2016.

2-4% mortality rate? Is that for a specific demographic: elderly, children and medical conditions?
