@sirvisgoat Until Patriots step up and run for office, we will keep getting more of the same. I ran for office in 2002, state of Florida, HR dist 16. I ran as a libertarian. You have no idea the satisfaction of going into the booth and pulling the lever for someone that has your best interest at heart (me)...
Let me say that one of the most therapeutic things you can do on NAS is take a look at the amazing photos that @SierraKiloBravo posts. I’m one of those people that can’t take a great photo, but I know them when I see them. He posts cool ones all of the time, and it’s a great service to take my mind away from whichever new thing the political world thinks I should fear and be angry about.
@sirvisgoat Great sentiment, but people are blind. You'd think by now they'd realize none of this is race or politics. It's all class. Political class, media class, tech class, pharma class. They use people under them to further their goals.
Trump saw that and won, then got ensnared in the political class and it was over.
I’m not sure when or if people will ever wake up and see this doesn’t have to be an us vs them zero sum game. It is because we allow it to be. Every time a new president is elected the losing side decries it as the end of the country. The winning side says, “now you know how we’ve felt for the last 4 (or 8) years.” We are being played. We say we hate our elected officials, but then we vote them back in. We are keeping ourselves enslaved. For the sake of your health, stop looking to men for hope.
Take a day off from the news. Watch an old movie. Talk to your kids, your parents, your pets.
Our work starts in 2 days and will last for 2 years. There will be no miracles. There will be no leaders. There will individuals, like you, doing little things, every day. That is the path forward. Not in trusting in someone else, but in taking on the burden yourself.
Every country deserves the government they have.
@sirvisgoat ha ha .. I thought that, too.
TBF to Pompeo, though, he INHERITED the old problem.
"Why can't we get in that door?"
"Somebody lost the key 12 years ago."
"Well..... make a new one!"
You know I've done the work, and I'm surprised that there are so many corporations pushing Meatless Mondays and now bugs as a replacement for delicious animal flesh. Meatless meat?! Are you retarded? Right here, right now, we carnivores need to take back the table. For all of you meat lovers out there, let's start the Meat Too movement. I will no longer be shamed when I eat a steak. #MeatToo

Some douche online: "my intel sources tell me that Trump is going to ride in on a pterodactyl this weekend, and he is going to drain the swamp and arrest everyone and send them to gitmo to be executed."
Q followers: "ooooo, get the 🍿 the storm is coming!"
