About the case of the FBI secret police charging a mentally impaired kid who couldn’t tie his own shoes with “terrorism.” I would advice every single person out there to never, NEVER consent to cooperate with the FBI unless you have a good lawyer present. The secret police are liars and proud of it, they consider themselves above the law and have a sneering disrespect for the Bill of Rights. They are constantly looking to create phony “terrorists” so as to justify their “terrorism” funding, and to advance their extreme radical fascist agenda. The FBI is, above all, a political militia. To anybody who doesn’t know, this story is all too typical of the behavior of the FBI.
Well that’s odd. This white guy feels that bias against white people by black people has gotten less, and that race relations have greatly improved.
Who is funding the backlash against John Oliver’s critique of so-called “charter” schools? The taxpayers. The scammers who set up and run charters are a bunch of parasitic welfare queens, diverting funding for public schools into their own pockets and delivering a substandard education to a select group of easily controlled kids who have no special needs. We the taxpayers have to pay for this half-assed duplication of existing services, we have no choice. And we pay for their advertising and for their propaganda.
