surely no one listening to this is delusional enough to think that Trump has some grand plan. he just says trade War because he likes the way it sounds coming out of his mouth and a deal would make him look good and not having a deal and being of the " tough guy" is all just a gimmick

Thanks for telling me about The Big One podcast! I live in LA and this was really helpful. Trying to look up about this online few years back was more confusing. I love how they worked to give a good picture of the scenario that we are likely to experience when the big one hits. Great timing too, since it on everyone's mind in LA right now.

why not just call them illegal immigrants, considering that's exactly what they are? It seems like you're intentionally using dishonest terms to pretend it's just dumb racist Americans hating on poor foreign families looking to start a new life here.

"Everyone should have just dropped everything and focused on food" "I was cheering for the Night King. I was irritated enough at this setting. You know, clearly they did not prepare enough food for winter, they clearly do not deserve to survive this." Uh...? what did Stacy and this guy think Sansa Stark was doing this whole time? Sitting on her hands? 😂 She DID get supplies.
