  1. “People fear what they don’t understand and hate what they can’t conquer.”
    -Andrew Smith

  2. “He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.” – Proverbs 14:31

  3. “This is my commandment: love each other just as I have loved you.” – Jesus Christ, John 15:12

    1. @Tracy Justice And when you can’t make stuff, how do you expect to buy stuff? Or what if you can’t work and you aren’t getting free government money? You want to lock up the “rich” that provide these things, but it’s no wonder automation via robots is happening at an alarming rate.

    2. @NPC #1138 – Honorary Rooftop Korean I suggest you read what you wrote from a different point of view. I’m one of the many people that is responsible for designing and integrating those automation systems you write of. It’s more than just robots, a lot more. There are hundreds of thousands of people like me and it doesn’t matter what your job is, me and my people are doing our best to eliminate your job. And, just so you know; when I first started doing this the first job I eliminated was my own…I got a promotion and a raise for doing that.

      This is one of the reasons I became interested in politics. The biggest reason for my political interest was Trump of course, let’s just say I’m not a fan. I don’t know and have not meet any person that does what I do that is sorry for what we do. If the economic and political systems fools marry and saddle themselves with can’t keep up it’s not our problem.

      The world is changing much MUCH faster than 90% of the people realize. It can be a better world with more time for life beyond work. Time to raise you children better, time to extend your education, time to plan and time to enjoy your life. Time to make the world better for those who will follow.

      I strongly advise you too get out of your box and start thinking of a better way. A better way is possible. It is possible to have a world where the worlds people have better things to do than serve each other coffee down at Starbucks.

  4. We’re gonna…..we gotta…..oh come on man you know the thing! – Joe Biden, Democrat

  5. Are the hypocrites taking action against Delaware who has the most “racist” and “ restrictive” election law in the country that includes voters ID?

    1. The Republican National Lawyers Association USED to track voter fraud. What they found over decades was an average of one illegal vote per state per year. The RNLA took the page down because it proved no voter fraud, which is against Republican interest.
      BTW, you don’t have better info than the entire RNLA, and Rudy Giuliani was in court 60 times with EVERYTHING you know and didn’t present it.
      Do you honestly not know why Rudy didn’t present your “evidence”?

    2. @Paul Schulte the courts refused to hear the evidence of voter fraud, on procedural grounds. Maricopa county Az. Has some very serious issues, ballots printed on the wrong paper stock, mail in ballots received that have no records of ever being sent, and a multitude of other issues. The truth will emerge, and no amount of gaslighting can stop it.

    3. @Jesse James Yes, all the courts are out to get you.
      A conspiracy is usually a small group of people keeping their intentions veiled, because the more people involved, the more likely the conspiracy will be exposed. In your world the entire legal community, from the Supreme Court on down are in a conspiracy.
      That SHOULD defy logic, even Trump appointees ruled against him.
      Get serious.

    4. @Paul Schulte what defies logic is gaslighting, a narcissistic ploy that denies and deflects all FACTS, in an effort to shame or redirect the conversation, Away from the facts.. you can take that weak technique somewhere else.

    5. @Jesse James So, show the “facts” that the RNLA doesn’t have, and that Rudy didn’t present in court in front of Trump appointees.
      Or would you rather deflect for
      Your lack of real facts?

  6. If it’s safe to mail tax refunds, social security checks, stimulus checks, draft registrations, prescription drugs passports, your driver’s licence, or the actual ID you’d use to vote..then it’s safe to vote by mail..

    1. OMGYOU ARE SPOT-ON BRILLIANT WHYHAVEN’T we HEARD this from NEWS commentators OR politicians supporting voting rights

    2. MY life you got it in one that needs putting on a tshirt and sent to every STATE well done that person

    3. I’m going to repeat that if it’s ok with you. It slaps down one of the other teams arguments convincingly.

  7. God Bless the meek the ones the white men have kicked to the curb. I would march with them if I could.

  8. Thanks for this today. I am just exhausted after minimal sleep and researching stuff. But rev.Barber and O’Rouke are amazing again. They will never forget theses new problems of voting rights. Yup that’s it. So…thanks for this.

  9. John 8:44
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
