  1. We are heading towards dividing America into two nations.
    Red America and Blue America.
    This divide continues we will fall apart

    1. @john smith 25% represents the Trump loving, Anti mask, anti vaccine, MAGA, Qanon nutjobs, right?

    2. Politicians and media want us fighting. Left vs right, black vs white, rich vs poor. It’s how they keep power over us and we all keep buying into there game. They show us all stories that incite anger in us, but when was the last time they showed us a solution? We can say change is needed all we want, but if we don’t take the steps to change and only keep throwing gas on these fires of hate, the nation will fall.

    3. @Polar Opposite No, you are wrong. It is not what the media wants, with the possible exception of the Rupert Murdoch media. It is what Putin wants and all part of Putin’s agenda. Here is some information that may be news to you:

      > Putin is an old “Cold War” warrior.
      > Putin wants to stay in power.
      > Putin wants to make Russia strong again and restore its prestige in the world.
      > Putin’s goal is the destabilization and the overcoming of the whole Western order.
      > To do this Putin’s Russia creates chaos wherever possible and then seeks to take advantage of that chaos. (Consider, for example, the takeover of the Crimea and the conflicts in Syria, Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine.)
      > Putin wants and is succeeding in manipulating America to destroy itself, he is also doing a text book job of divide and conquer by his backing of Trump who’s own ego is and was of more importance than international obligation or global alliances. Putin is a shrewd player and Trump was no match for him.

      What is beyond debate, however, is that Putin was winning. Witness the Republicans defense of Trump and their warnings against being duped by our own intelligence agencies.
      Americans, led by Trump, his minions and enablers, were losing faith in our democracy and our institutions, including the media, that prop up that democracy. Thank God we are rid of Trump. We now need to clear out the Trump cultists and Trump enablers to get back to the USA as envisioned in our Declaration of Independence and our great US Constitution.

    1. Nope it’s done, unless politicians and media stop driving the wedge and instigating racial and political hate between us, there will be no coming back. I do not see them letting up or even trying to come up with a solution any time soon.

    2. I don’t know what you have or will contribute to humanity but your comment shows me your strength of character fits right in w the type of people you so boorishly criticize. All countries evolve.

    3. @Polar Opposite Some people think it sporting to slam someone’s country. They are insecure ineffective unsuccessful in their personal life’s goals; if any.

    4. @EmilyB Bernard Careful about being overly defensive and responding by projecting insults to others. We (Americans) need to get over our arrogance and ADMIT we have seriously dangerous problems here. We can’t “evolve” until we admit we have a problem

  2. Let me tell u all that you need to know in the George Floyd case. At the 7 minute mark the cop said he has NO PULSE. Why!!! at that split second… wasn’t CPR rendered to that human being. These are our hero’s. Our first responders in fact. O no….wait let’s give the courpse 2 minutes of attention….Just before our second group of first responders..the Parimedics roll on the the set. Taking their time, not rendering any heart massage… no oxygen to Mr. Floyd. Minneapolis Police and Fire were true monsters….that day. They felt so comfortable snuffing Mr. Floyd out…they did it on camera.. for all the world to see. They failed to save a life…they chose to instead to take one….there in competition.

  3. If you care about the actual people in your state the republicans attack you. If you treat people badly based on lies the republicans worship you. I am glad we have this AG in MI and others that look out for the voters that just want to survive and avoid all that hateful rhetoric and lying and betraying to win. Life is hard enough without being attacked by your own federal government.

  4. It’s because of this I thought we kept on eye on all these militias & gun nuts. Then I see dudes carrying guns out in the open in Charlottesville!

    1. Actually, as of 5/24/16, West Virginia began allowing, legally, anyone who is at least 21 years old and not prohibited from owning a firearm to carry a handgun without a permit, openly or concealed. Possession and open carry of handguns is legal at age 18, but adults between the ages of 18 and 21 must obtain a permit in order to carry a concealed firearm.
      – – – Republican state, what can you say?

  5. You only have to look to your phone briefly to see the idiocy on full display in America and it’s nauseating to anyone with a conscience and reverence for humanity. In sixty years, I’ve never been less proud to claim America as my homeland.

    1. It’s part of our country. John Lewis never said this. John McCain never did either. Heroes are born everyday. AOC helped Texas with 1million in donations. Ted fled. I’m sad and angry too. I’m afraid to linger in parking lots. But it’s not the whole of America

  6. Every law we have concerning foreign enemies should be rewritten to include domestic terrorists. There is no distinction. It’s not the entire solution but it’s a direction.

  7. Lack of unity against both foreign and domestic terrorism – for that matter, lack of unity about anything.

  8. Are the right-wing extremist using the Republicans or are the Republicans using the right-wing extremist?

  9. Now that humans are an endangered species, Americans needs to be extremely careful.
    The country offers many opportunities to teach humanity some painful lessons.

    1. Every American should be Antifa, and the problem is that we are not. My grandfather served in WWII fighting the NAZI’s, and was thus Antifa.

  10. Republican politicians think they can ride this anti government extremism tiger to their benefit. They are sorely mistaken.

  11. Jesus loves and cares about you so much so repent so that we all make it to heaven.

    Like so more people can see this

  12. In 1995 the cockroaches just scurried underground to breed and multiply; today they are 5%-15% of our population, the dark heart of the Republican Party.
