let me give you an example some pretty popular Democrats or some not popular Democrats just regular voters of liberals preach equality systemic racism recently said some super racist stuff about black folks and CNN or VOX media CBS MSNBC said nothing about it yet it said by Congress members probably celebrities more than once not the only time this has ever happened does happen nobody covers why doesn't CNN cover the left in any kind of negative way at all you hear Fox anchors talk shit about Republicans like a lot and liberals but CNN or any other huge media corporation besides Fox and a few other small outfits will be the only person people who will cover the left truthfully

I would like a liberal to get on here and really critique the left tell me the worst part about the Democratic party and I'm not talking about bullshit stuff I want to hear serious stuff and hypocritical stuff cuz people are hypocrites and the left has a lot of hypocritical tendencies and then when somebody does that I'll do the same thing for the right obviously I'm right wing conservative if they're the same thing who knows anymore it's all convoluted

I don't have an apple phone and I only check FB maybe a couple times a month. So I don't think I'm a huge hypocrite if I say, Fuck those guys.

I tried out an electric car, and absolutely loved it! Unfortunately, the closest charging station is a half-hour away, and unless you live downtown (which I don't), there just aren't enough charging stations in my area to make me feel safe enough to go all the way. Fingers crossed for the future 🤞

One thing left out is that she still owns publishing rights to her original songs, so when it comes to commercial use, so she can veto and force companies to use her re-recorded versions instead.

Such an emotional roller coaster! I'm cheering for the youth across the country who are fighting to have a KKK &/or confederate leader's name removed from their school. I'm sending a death-glare to the old farts who are either too dense to understand the importance, or too racist to get on board. I'm shaking my head at the virtue-signaling people taking things a bit too far. yeesh.
