"Some economists" say this, other economists say that, yet other economists say something else entirely. But you can count on all journalists quoting only those economists who say something that the journalists want to be true. It's their way of injecting their own opinion into news stories without getting laughed at, since no one cares what journalists think.

Black Santa would be cultural appropriation (if I actually believed in that nonsense), because Santa Claus was invented by white people.

We need to stop lying to children: There is no Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, god, angels, demons, spirits, devil, ghosts, etc.

George Washington was not a Patriot. He betrayed his King & Country. God did not give this country to white christians, they stole it - killing women & children is not a "Battle", it's a massacre.

The soldiers who killed unarmed Native Americans at Wounded Knee should not have been given Congressional Medals of Honor, they should have been charged with murder.

We don't need "prayer" in the schools, we need history - real history, not American Mythology. We need science & math, not fairy tales about Jesus.

Stop lying to the children.

Trump said it himself. The job numbers are phony and fake.
