  1. There will always be a minority of racists but these stories are beautiful. Please US, go back to those days.

    1. @Ledger Allen This is youtube my dude, you’re looking for GETTR or another failed right wing “social media” platform. Also, liking your own comment? Hahaha!

    2. @Dulmorgoth Yes, he should go to GETTR. Or, because it’s a Trump site, should it be called GRAB HER!

    3. @Ledger Allen think you need to look up the definition of Racist. Please educate yourself, you will be more compassionate and less angry.

    4. The New Colossus

      Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
      With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
      Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
      A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
      Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
      Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
      Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
      The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
      “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
      With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

  2. I was living in Guam in 1975, I remember when they brought all the half-American babies through.

  3. I can see why Guam elected her as governor… And the money from the operation will help Guam as well, win-win.

    1. It is very sad, but also heart warming that almost every government official is more articulate than the last guy.

  4. Re the section on Afghan translators, there are still translators in Iraq who worked beside the US until the troops left this year. They are in danger now and need the same provisions

    1. @Mel D Drumpf pulled out of Syria, and let them die… and let the US Military equip. be STOLEN! But hey, STOLEN election of 2016 and STOLEN $$ …STOLEN is what Drumpf and the Warmonger Republicon party is all about… they have never had any Real policy.

    2. @eltorocal – This hybrid learning is a complete disaster. We need children to get back to school for in person learning.

    3. Donald Chump and the RepublicanT’s are responsible for the terrorists attack on the Nation’s capital on January 6th

  5. It seems to be impossible to run through a wall of old, white, bigoted politicians. I wish gem God’s speed.

    1. You don’t know what it’s like being black in America but I do, I’m a white millennial from the suburbs !

      See how dumb You’re looking

  6. Everybody should have the voting franchise or you have no business calling yourself a Democracy. Walk the walk. Don’t just talk the talk.

  7. I believe that most people in the US would help our allies in need. We would want the same done for us.

    1. @MrStretch610 if you simply sitting behind a keyboard typing this away and not actively doing anything to make that a reality…. nothing will change. But this is way off topic from the video that were watching so have a good

    2. @MrStretch610 NO VERY SMART…The same what aboutism fascist use. Black folk are always happy to help other people. You are not black…

    3. @MrStretch610 I believe that should happen and I also believe that American Indians need reparations

    4. Donald Chump and the RepublicanT’s are responsible for the terrorists attack on the Nation’s capital on January 6th

    1. @Amberlee Sibley let’s see how much you don’t know.
      Yes the USA has been a bad actor around the world, I like to just start with 1898. In the past 122 years the USA has been the number one terrorist state on the earth.
      Now tell me why??

      The stupid of ignorance is kinda okay, nobody can know everything.
      What is not okay is the stupid of willful ignorance! Because that is a choice that is made consciencely.

      Do you know why and when the USA’s CIA trained and armed the Taliban?

  8. How times have changed… for the worse. This happens when countries like the United States drift towards Fascism.

    1. I am british, it appalls me to see friends in time of need being ignored and abandon by the rich, lucky, fake, religious right.

    2. @sirmartinfrobisher I’m Dutch and I agree with you completely,the “kind” America was completely turned into a “hateful” America by the Trump administration.Thank God that America now has the Biden team,they are people with compassion.

    1. Republicans are 100% united to rigging the elections 100% their way so that they could forever be the fascist rulers of this nation! Meanwhile Joe Mansions and Kyrsten Cinema sit idly by watching the Republicans taking control of the election process to make sure not another Democrat would ever get elected again! That’s what happened when you have paid corporate shills working for the Republicans within the Democratic Party!

  9. In yesterday’s POTUS press conference on the Afghan situation: NOT ONE REPORTER asked about our Afghan interpreters — and the danger our allies are in! How appalling: this lack of American compassion. The Republican mass mental illness is spreading…

  10. Think about it: the difference between how Trump treated USA’s former Kurd allies (you think they still are our allies; after Trump [we] betrayed them???) versus how the people of Guam want us to treat our Afghan allies. It is called EVIL versus GOOD.

    1. Donald Chump and the RepublicanT’s are responsible for the terrorists attack on the Nation’s capital on January 6th

    1. That and extend voting to 2 days with both days being holidays. There are some essential offices and businesses that can’t be shut down completely, but that would give them a chance to stagger their staff to vote on one of the two days. The way the country votes now is just ridiculous. Proof that they never intended for everyone to vote.

  11. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;  the wretched refuse of your teeming shores. 
    Send these, the homeless tempest-tossed to me.  I lift my light beside the golden door.” 
    This country was built by immigrants. But the golden door slammed shut awhile ago, and with it the erosion of what we used to stand for. So very sad, to see what we’ve become.

    1. “The New Colossus

      Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
      With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
      Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
      A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
      Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
      Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
      Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
      The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
      “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
      With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

  12. Kurdistan should be it’s own country taking parts of Iraq, Syria and Turkey but if course none of those countries would go for it.
