People don't give a damn about the death of this guy it just gives them an excuse to steal and cause damage. That's a proven fact! Oh and blame Beyonce she started this when she killed the unarmed police in TX. Don't expect this to get any better it won't. Want solutions go talk to Beyonce...again it's her fault!

Silicon Valley had a “libertarian ethos” in the ‘80s, ‘90s, and maybe early 2000s. That has been replaced with a full on, hard left, CCCP embracing, Marxist/Globalist ethos that came growling to the fore after the election of the bad orange man. Libertarians are not welcome in Silicom Valley anymore.

Lairs who have the ability to influence millions don't want their lies to be fact checked. The president shouldn't be able to lie to the American people 2 to 3 times a day.

Target has lately supported every virtue signaling liberal cause out there, including male trannies in girls’ changing rooms. This is delicious karma.

All this bullshit going on and Captain dipshit just want's to make sure he can lie to the people. Worst POTUS ever.
