    I stopped when Michigan State University started supporting BANNING comments on students doors!
    And I will NEVER give to them when they started having TA's announce their preferred gender pronouns.

    I got into a fight with Family over this. They swore it wasn't true... I sent them the Orientation Video from my old dorm... And then THEY MOVED the goal post to "Well, they didn't ask OTHERS to start their preferred pronouns".

    Missing the point that they are normalizing this, and they ALL were normal pronouns..

    But I like this reason as well... All though the Harvard Trust is so huge they can give free college forever... To all the wrong people pushing all the bad ideas.

    3 Things Made America what it is:
    1) Gumption. Wanting More.
    2) Cheap Energy. Enabling Innovation!
    3) The funnelling system to take the brightest gems from across the country and the world and bring them to the learning institutions so they could leverage their IQs. It was always the case that near EVERY big university startups were always popping up.

    Now, they take EVERYONE and brain wash them. The most intelligent HATE universities.

    My daughter struggles because she sees her classes are NOT hard enough. They are watered down. And the students around her don't realize it! Because many don't belong.

    Her friends are staying in school for MORE education because their current education cannot get them jobs. It's sad!

    The looters must get $$ in order to ply their trade. The best thing we can do is NOT give them money. That means cutting expenses to reduce sales taxes, and as a by product reduce income to reduce income taxes.
    Use that car for another year before buying a new one
    Cut driving by 10%
    Cut back on the amount of food bought that gets thrown away
    Get rid of direct TV and go with Netflix and others
    Cut utility expenses as much as possible and reduce the utility taxes.

    Imagine if everyone who voted for Trump cut their total tax bill by 10%. Looters can only control us in proportion to the amount of money they can loot.

      Generally good ideas, but looters will just invent new ways to loot more.

        But eventually they will have to loot themselves more and more

          Why does this remind me of the practice of cannibalism?

            it is cannibalism. First of the unprotected groups, like the rich and politically disadvantaged, but eventually everyone is affected (like in Venezuela).

            I love Elizabeth Warren saying she would take 4% asset tax every year from the 75 richest americans. Of course everyone would have to fill out the forms requiring accounting for all assets. Next it would be 5%, then 7%, then 10%, etc.

            Imagine all the work it would take to add up all your assets !!!! It would be like the asset tax currently on all personal property that the local counties dont even bother collecting on (unless you are a business actually) because they know they would never get it....

    Hey, your voice can be heard. I just complained mightily to my Congressman...he tried to route me to my state guys...I told him that wouldn't work and why...he routed me to the case worker who is supposed to be settling FEMA claims from 2 years ago, and I am going to see her in person! In our county on the Gulf Coast, hundreds of claims have been filed and 7 have been settled. This isn't satisfactory! More later.

    There was a massive turn out at my husband's funeral. Nearly every elected official in the county attended, as did officers from the Sheriff's Office, Community College, and City Police Department. I think they wanted to be sure he was in the casket!

    Without hearing Mr Brook, I would suggest getting the looters out of Congress and the state houses would be a good start.

      Brook talks about not sending money to your Alma Mater b/c they teach that you are the bad guy.

      That is a start for those who graduated from universities known of worshipping the left.

      But even for those people, there is another obligation: the voting ballot.

      Show up to vote and select the right candidates.

      Omar, Tlaib and Cortez were elected. How could persons like them get elected to Congress? As the news are rolling in, all newly elected reps to the House are rabid communists, denigrating anybody opposing them.

      What kind of people would elect these characters to represent them? Are they pleased what they see them doing now?

        "What kind of people would elect these characters to represent them? Are they pleased what they see them doing now?" I've been wondering the same thing, exceller. I've seen no news of any poles taken in any of their districts to see if their constituents really approve of their representation. With that said, I can understand the two Muslims as fronts for the Imams and I expect Muslims to do what they are told by the religious leaders, but what about O-Cortex?

          There were some clips indicating their districts are not pleased, but I doubt it.

          Tlaib and Omar were selected and placed according to plans, It was no accident but a strategic plan devised some time ago.

          You should be able to connect the dots and realize the carefully planned progress of Muslims taking over.

          There are two of them in Congress now. In 2020 there may be another three, and gradually they will represent a significant voice.

          The left will not oppose them b/c they think they can use them against the nationalist voices in this country. What they don 't realize is that once Muslims take over, there will be no left or right, only Sharia.

          That is the folly every sane American must realize, since the left would not.

            Well said G , We were deep in to the 16 yr plan to destroy America. That is the truth. It is not by happenstance we have this crop of Muslim or anti capitalist or anti constitution freaks. They are puppets of Soros open society, deep state , media created by UN globalists pushing a NWO. . They never thought she would lose. Trump is fighting for US against them. They got sloppy. They owned the FBI/DOJ. Not anymore. Had Donald Trump lost we would not have survived the devastation HRC and her gang of clowns 🤡 would have brought to bear.
            Imagine if the Feinstein, Pelosi, Schiff, Klobucher , Schumer , Nadler , Blumenthel. ,Eric Swallows , Maxine LowiQ ,
            Sanders , and the rest were not being countered.
            As Donnie Branco would say Faghetaboudit.

              I recall before the 2016 elections Hannity repeatedly said: "Do you want Maxine Waters lead the Financial Committee, Schiff the Intelligence Committee, Pelosi to be Speaker of the House?"

              That is exactly what happened. I am dying to finally see the GOP growing a spine and be more assertive and aggressive.

              The left is still strong. Clinton lost but her minions are still around doing damage, despite the writing on the wall that their days are numbered:

              https://www.foxnews.com/politics/clin...

              This prick is probably funded by Clinton money to continue the attack on Kavanaugh.

              DiFi just lashed out at AG Barr during the hearing that in "her 26 years in Congress" she has never seen "one person" making the difference to ACA being a law. Well woman, you have been there long enough. BTW, she looks like a walking mummy.

              It is politics of hate for the left. They have an unlimited capacity for hatred which is the only emotion they are capable of.

            Three. Keith Ellison was #1. People (especially the Democrats) tend to forget him.

              Yes, he was the first one:

              "Keith Ellison’s Replacement May Be More Radical Than He Is
              June 12, 2018| by Donn Marten

              Fed up with having to answer questions about his relationship with anti-Semitic hatemonger Louis Farrakhan, Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison announced last week that he would not be running for reelection to his congressional seat in November.

              Instead, Ellison has thrown his hat into the ring in the race for Minnesota attorney general where he has stated that he could better wage the war on President Trump’s immigration policies if he wins. Like with all vacuums, they quickly fill up and in Ellison’s case, the woman who is running for his House seat is possibly even more radicalized, anti-Semitic and anti-American that he is.

              Meet Ilhan Omar."

              It is working nicely and according to plan. The next one will be more radical and so on.

      And how would YOU do that?

        Get them defeated in the next election. I know some are in safe districts and states, but if the Dems can swing 40+ in 2018, the Republicans can swing that back plus more.
        I'm not sure the republicans are the right party for the swing, but they are the only viable party at the current time.
        the libertaians need to get candidates elected and grow the party as a viable alternative to the two current one. that could/would shake things a whole lot.

          But what specifically can an individual (YOU) do without assuming some collective will do the same?
          That’s what Yaron Brooks is talking about.

            Actively speak out and encourage others to do the same. You can only speak for yourself and act for yourselft, but your speech and actions can/may influence others to do the same.
            Getting the collective pody politic to act is difficult. A focal point is needed and even a single persons actions may serve to be that spark that ignites the changes necessary.

    Although, one impertinent young lady commented, 'they were afraid she might be writing down the names of anyone who didn't show up'. Another commented 'this was the most politically correct funeral I ever attended!' Really?

    When my oldest son was in civilian school, while we were posted at a Military Base, the school had a drill and my son was locked in his room with an entire class. My husband visited the school and informed the Superintendent if it happened again, he would report the matter to the Provo Marshall's Office at the Fort and no more military funds would be forthcoming for military children's attendance. Guess what? No more drills locking doors!

    I might get sick! My Congressman just showed up and recognized a man who got a settlement from FEMA. His property was damaged by 2 Hurricanes...IKE and HARVEY. Congratulations to that 'hard working' Congressman! Now we have 8 people who have gotten settlements!
