The top U.S. diplomat's trip coincides with a flare-up in Israeli-Palestinian violence. But it was long planned, follows a visit to Egypt, and Blinken is in the region to take stock of other issues including new threats to checks and balances on Israel's democracy, often described as "the only democracy in the Middle East," and familiar ones from Iran.

  1. Legalize weed, so our families can make profit instead of letting these big companies make all the money Maryland stop dictating and controlling how much money people could be making because that’s what it’s all about

    1. If they legalize weed, people can just grow it themselves for free. I get what your saying tho. I like small government with full opportunities for the citizens to make as much as they want. Take away all the stupid regulations. In pa, Mastriano promised to eliminate over 200 out of like 260 small business regulations. He lost mysteriously. We just need trump back. Whether u like him or not, we were all making bank when he was president. I went from living at my mom’s during Obama, needing food stamps and welfare insurance, to buying a house, my own food, and insurance during trump. Without a single penny lost in wages, I now struggle to have enough food to eat twice a day and I’m back on the welfare insurance. Time to go hit that cart.✌️
