  • 18:35 ". . . [her] dream [is] deferred. . ." words taken from one of my favorite poems, HARLEM. Written by Langston Hughes in the 1920s, the poem explores the frustrating effect of racial discrimination upon one's aspirations. My wish is for all children to be afforded God's grace during this pandemic.

  • Venezuelans ,do not want the administration of Mr. Biden to help us to emigrate to the United States and invade the United States or any other country,!!!!that is why we support the policy of President Trump ,who has understood that in order to prevent illegal emigration what we need is to apply the measures that President Donald Trump was taking, against the Nicolás Maduro regime, to return to being a free country and in that way we can all return to our beloved Venezuela,♥️🇻🇪♥️without being repressed or assassinated .Thank you President Donld Trump, For Everything that has helped Venezuelans, ♥ ️in the fight for the freedom of Venezuelans. We will be eternally grateful. 🙏🏻Venezuelans, cannot achieve it alone, because the regime is supported by Iran, Russia, Cuba and China.🥲🥲🥲🥲 ♥ ️🇻🇪🙏🏻🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲

  • Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.Oluta herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email dr.olutaspellcaster@gmail.com and his Whatsapp number: +2349065326267. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or HIV AIDS or Lungs cancer or Alzheimer's disease. or visit his facebook page. m.facebook.com/pages/category/Product-Service/Drolutaherbalhome-100710878112591/

  • How about mentioning how Israel gets roughly $50k per citizen from the USA every year? Bragging about how good they are doing on the USA's checkbook. While we of course are dying in the streets, massive debt and failing systems! Gotta love the nation of "God" is literally thriving off Blood money from the USA to commit war crimes.

  • Do not be deceived by "heartwarming" baloney or clever manipulations! The "Federal" Reserve just gifted $2 TRILLION to its banksters buy their uncollectible, mortgage-backed bonds in 2019 to 2020, when they knew that if the banksters attempted to sell such bonds, they would have had to sell them at ludicrously low prices: particularly, because real estate has been in a huge bubble for years and this pandemic has prevented so many businesses from opening, resulted in their insolvency and defaults on their rents and mortgages, and will result in many, many commercial landlords also being in default on their mortgage-backed bonds given to the banksters. Will anyone give even a fraction of such sums to the poor in Texas or those ordinary Americans who now face huge bills to repair their burst pipes or to buy water to give to their families because the water supply became contaminated? NEVER. There will be federal loans, which the Texas poor and middle class will have to pay for the next decade(s.) They will not get bailouts, because they do not control the USA, like the banksters control it. With this covid pandemic, I also must to point out to all minorities but particularly to African-Americans, that you are being fooled by those in power with nonsense, like the tv shows "American Gods," into believing that things are changing. They are not, because those in power just want you to keep voting for them even though they secretly despise you and keep giving them power while you get nothing back, have to attend lousy schools, get inadequate nutrition from companies, like fast food companies that know that their food is hurting you, not qualify for significant sums in student loans, then not be able to get a decent job, and if you got any student loans, have to pay them for the rest of your life, because they are not dischargeable in bankruptcy anymore. Vote for your own people of your own race, poverty level, ethnic group, and religion, who will actually care about you and act in your own best interests and not for the corrupt "elites" who never represented your interests and got the $2 TRILLION in bailouts these last two years or $29 TRILLION during the last bailouts. See "Bernanke’s Obfuscation Continues: The Fed’s $29 Trillion Bail-Out Of Wall Street" in Huffingtonpost. See "The Fed's $29 TRILLION bailout of Wall Street" in multiplier effects d o t o r g. Take it from a fellow minority member. However, to all of you poor whites, wake up! You have also been getting the shaft for decades, albeit those who have been wielding it may have sometimes been of your own racial group. Support people who might care about you, because they come from the same position and poverty level and will return to it after they leave office.
