Aint that the truth. Just looking at him makes the hair on the back of the neck stand up. Pure evil.

It is man lust and greed that drives these people to power.

I would suggest that if you folks have not done it, to read a couple of books. One of them is " Mein Kampf' the other is "1984" It will give you a pretty good idea of what lies ahead if nothing is done about it.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

Read 1984, but not Mein Kampf. Based on what I've read in 1984, I'd say you've got a valid point when it comes to the future of America.
According to many biblical scholars, America is not a player in the last days. We will fall like the Roman Empire did, internal corruption.

I've never joined either one. I'm an anti-social hermit to begin with, but value my privacy more than any benefit any social media has to offer.

But the worst of the lot is Google. They ARE "big brother". You don't have a choice with them. They are always watching. And may be listening too.

I stopped using google and started using duckduckgo. None of the ads like google and they block trackers. It will tell you how many trackers are trying to follow you on each site. Pretty eye opening.

Then there is gmail.......and your android phone. They scan every gmail for content.......your phone follows you around.....even up and down the isles........and worse, may be listening to what you say. All of it in the context of "helping you" make decisions on what products to buy.

When surfing the web, watch what happens when you click on a screen......watch the little "analytics" going on before the url you selected shows up.

About the only Google you get to chose is the search engine. In every other aspect, if follows your every move. It really is big brother.

BTW, anyone seen those location apps? The one where you share your current location with friends? I sat through a presentation once where the lady up front was explaining this. She had put one on her mother and daughter's phones without their knowledge. She knew where they were at all times Pulled up her mother's........."I see she is pulling into the parking lot at the grocery store".

Google knows all that on you too. All the time.

I left a note on the kitchen table this morning, telling the woman I went hunting and would be back around 10.
