75. What really pisses me off is why these people want...

Jul 2021

to listen to those lies, that crap. They had choices - whatever made them want to listen to those lying sons of b****** to begin with?

I think it was a.m. talk radio that hooked my brother way back when he was driving a long-hauler. I once tried to listen to Limbaugh for 10mins but couldn't - I became so angry I had to turn him off. Same with Faux Lies.

Doesn't it have to do with southern "white male fragility" and that insightful quote of LBJ's?:

"If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

Just repeating folks here: it's about racism, culture, perverted religion, egos, and yes, ignorance, not facts or policies for them. LBJ knew he lost the South for Democrats. With the help of rich, lying media (& their churches) that minority is now threatening our democracy.

Well, well, well. What was hidden, is revealed. marble falls Jul 2021 #1
