True Americans should be utterly appalled by the transparently political convictions of Donald Trump (whether they like Trump or not). It's because of things like a corrupt justice system, that make me never want to live in Moscow or China or Any other banana republic. Biden needs to GO.

Peter seems to think Trump's felony convictions, are the final stake in the heart of the vampire. There are probably some who think of These felony convictions as a crucifixion of a messiah. Those are only the the extreme minority opinions of American voters.

It was actually the conservative CDU that shut down nuclear power in Germany. Not the green party.

I was a big fan of Elon musk when it was all about electric vehicles and becoming an inter planetary species but when he took over social media and turned it into a right wing disinformation sewer I went right off him. What a twat.

It is not "nucular." It is difficult to take someone seriously if they cannot even pronounce "nuclear" correctly.

Our own government is the biggest propaganda purveyor on the globe. U.S. news outlets used to fact check the government. Now, they are the mouthpiece of the propagandists.Also, it's not just the things the news outlets say - it's what they don't report that is also problematic. We are turning into China at an alarmingly fast pace.
