It's amazing how much BS come out of NPR. There were years where I listened religiously. The continued promotion of the failed corporate and government heavy response across shows National Propaganda Radio for what it is. Still pushing worthless MAGA jabs.

Madeline Albright also said this on the murder of 500,000 Iraqi children through American sanctions: Interviewer:"We have heard that half a million [Iraqi] children have died. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" Madeline Albright: "I think that is a very hard choice, but the price, we think, the price is worth it." Very disgusting that NPR wouldn't dare talk about this during their eulogy.

If we only get a small percentage of fuel from Russia why are our gas prices coming up if we're still buying fuel from other suppliers? I think it's price gouging opportunistic price gouging!

The son should be so proud to turn in that horrible human being that is unfortunately his father. I feel so bad about the backlash he will probably get because of it. The poor mother. I feel for the family. Prayers to them all. ❤️
