    Funny thing lol Bush “senior” opens the border. Its been a mess since. Doesn’t matter who Dems, Reps,.
    Maybe the Mexican gov. Should take the most blame. If they did their job on their end. Might help some.

    She should have not released this technology, the human species is not prepared for it at this time. I understand that the breakaway civilization that we have going on right now would have loved to put their hands on it so maybe she made it public so that it couldn’t be compromised and hidden away by this breakaway civilization that exist by the way. Hey the recruits through the military, and has access to all the technology that is not revealed to the public.

    Each person that voted could have gotten 1 million dollars and that would be less than 1.9 trillion

    • Constituent A | March 17, 2021 at 7:39 PM | Reply

      If 150 million people who voted each received $1 million, that would be $1,500,000,000,000,000. Last time I checked, $1,500,000,000,000,000 > $1,900,000,000,000. ($1.5 quadrillion is greater than $1.9 trillion – by a LOT!)
