    The education system in America is going to the dogs under tRump & Betsy Devos. Speaking of education, remember tRump University?

    • Education has been going to the dogs ever since Reagan. The rich just *didn’t* (wah) have enough in the ’80s and now they can’t take enough from everyone else. /s

      Yes & we need to get rid of No Child Left Behind which is leaving millions of children behind & killing themselves across our nation in the thousands, ages 10 – not 10th grade – 10 yrs old – 18. Our conservative, business state of Utah was the state with the highest number of kid suicides in 2016 at 600! We’ve been in the 600s every yr since. It’s an absolute tragedy & disgrace! ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜

      @wildcatter63 No, this is just our first stepping stone!

      @Diana Smith Trump did that pretty much every Dept of the Executive Branch: an oil magnate over the EPA, Jared over, well everything, including foreign relations, the COVID plan, etc.

      @bellamoon Our government has Billions to spend on it, but wars – the ‘Defense'(war) budget is 54% of our entire national budget – ‘intelligence’ agencies like the NSA – who spy on us – got $60 Billion for 2020! People, even kids, just aren’t priorities for Republicans. Oh yeah & making the filthy rich even richer.


    • @Steve Beaty no.

    • I think the only thing the founding fathers did not foresee was the term Iโ€™m coining โ€œthe feckless McConnell factor.โ€ They never thought an entire brach would just freeze & blow-up the whole machine. They assumed the 3 branches would keep each other in check. I wish the constitution said, โ€œrefusing to work with your co-governors is a failure & slowing them wheels of government is treason!โ€

    • @Erin Murphy Vote. Keep pushing the Republicans out. Vote Justice Democrats in. AOC and the squad, TYT, and all the progressive channels out there will keep you informed on what to do and how we can fight.

    • @SGT. Torouk I really really love the Damage Report, but TYT I have a hard time watching the main show. Love the guests! The hosts have a terrible habit of minimizing their own perspective by devolving into childish mocking. Itโ€™s like a bad habit at this point. Anna & Jake do it habitually. Itโ€™s a shame bc they are both incredibly intelligent but I think in an attempt to be funny they resort to silly voices & childish jokes. It has put me off for years. Iโ€™ve been listening to Sam Sedar for 20-ish years. Michael Brooksโ€™ passing was an immense loss this summer. He brought not religious philosophy but a spiritual element that I think is being overlooked right now. David Pakman is my other favorite at this time. That kid is getting huge & I think heโ€™s a brilliant level minded young man who can make a big difference while posing intelligent rational empathetic perspectives.

      GREAT idea!!!

  6. The founders hated cities. Empty space has to much power. That’s not fair any more. It’s a distortion.

  7. The true and TRUTHS. God wins.
    Thank you so much again sir.

    Speaking of “Education in America” remember tRump University?

  9. This is a extremely short lesson that all conservatives need to be brainwashed to understand, because they clearly don’t !!

    Remember when Donald tRump had to pay a $25,000,000.00 fine for fleecing thousands of gullible students with his bogus & fake University?

  12. The Confederacy is what trump wants to come back, nope

    • Bruce strkland | November 9, 2020 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      We kinda need to return and find out where we went wrong. If we’re gonna fix equality let’s do it right this time. What did Lincoln want us to do?? ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    • That one reason, for all is hatred, bulliness and racism speaches. Your not born to hate, bully or born to be races.

    • Don’t confuse the U.S. articles of confederation (1777), with the southern Confederacy (1861-1865) — they are not at all the same thing.

  13. Donald Trump just said The Walking Dead stole his election someone should tell him it’s a TV show

    In honor of Alex Trebek:

    Q: This disgraced President is the only person to have both been impeached and lost the popular vote twice.

    A: Who is Donald Trump?

  15. It’s a great day for the United States of AMERICA. It’s a great day for the World.

  16. How to keep a republic sustainable? Educate the people.

  17. Wow! How much research must have gone in writing this book of Historical significance!
    I’m not American but I’ll definitely read it.

    230 years is a good run, time for an update. One that’s Trump proof!

    Yet one little ๐Ÿข McConnell has blocked all progress. That seems wrong. One person should not yeild that much power
