When voting your conscience out weighs voting to put a roof over your families head and food on the table for your children and what’s in the best interest of your friends neighbors and the poor that’s when you get red rural republican counties living in poverty.
50% of school children in poverty stricken counties live day to day in poverty. One such county in Kentucky is Harlan County where 32% percent of its citizens live in poverty. My friends we have Joe Biden to thank for a 25% increase in food stamps for these children in poverty.
If breaking the poverty in these rural counties means breaking the republican strong hold in these counties then we must do so. If parents refuse to do what is right for their children then it is up to us to bring their failure to the front of the debate.
Harlan County Kentucky is 95.9% white African American 2.1% The population is about 27 thousand 31.1% of the population lives in poverty. Per capita income 16,500 dollars per year. About 40% 11 thousand of Harlan Countains voted 85.35% voted for Donald Trump while only 13.62% voted for Joe Biden. There are about 20 thousand registered voters in Harlan Democrats 14,500 Republican 5,300 other 550. About one third of the population recieves a snap benifits about 7,000 recieves SSI benifits the unemployment rate is about 10%. Only 72% of Harlan countains has a high school or higher education which would put about 50% of Harlan Countains only has high school dipoloma that leaves 12% with a less than high school education.
My friends Harlan County is now a typical red republican county even though Democrats hold a three to one edge in registered voters it is clear from this data Democrats in name only crossed over and votes republican. The fact so many live in poverty and still votes republican is mind blowing. The fact so many vote against putting food on their table and roofs over their heads just can’t be explained but i am sure the answer is in the data somewhere.
As a part of the 2020 Doha Agreement, Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo made a deal with the Taliban to have America leave Afghanistan by May 1, 2021, lift sanctions against the group, and have 5,000 Taliban prisoners released, in exchange for a 3-month cease-fire. Those prisoners now control Afghanistan. This was after Obama, Hillary and the Iran deal. Used to be, America didn’t make deals with terrorists. But I guess that all changed when a self perceived “genius” dilettante got into the White House.
Right here in the United States women are having to fight for control of their own bodies yet the Afghan women will lose all rights they had under Taliban control. As a woman I can only imagine how they must be feeling after living a liberated life to have to lose total control to men.
I truly believe if the United States had trained 100,000 Afghan women to the Afghan army the Taliban would have been defeated years ago. My heart goes out to the Afghan women I just hope we continue to fight for their rights and never stop until they have them.
My friends until the Afghanistan people decide they want to be free from the Taliban it is not going to happen. Russia spent a decade in Afghanistan and they could not win. Many of us knew the day we went into Afghanistan we were fighting a campaign we could not win.
Joe Biden did the right thing by pulling out of Afghanistan if they were not ready to fight for their country against a weaker force then ten more years would have never made a difference. We have lost too many in this campaign as it is.
Martin Luther King said it best GOD did not anoint the Unite States to be the policemen of the world. Try as we may we can not will a country to stand up for itself unless the people are ready. Let us not forget a republican put us in Afghanistan and a Democrat got us out .
My friends people can not have it both ways they can not believe on one hand it is ok to take away a woman rights to control her own body but on the other hand support restrictions to the reproductive rights of a woman.
The fact is many states already has restrictions on a woman’s right to choose what happens to their own bodies. In my minds eye these people refusing to wear masks and refusing to take their shots are speaking out of both sides of their mouth for them this is all political as far as I can see.
My friends everywhere I go I see people without masks and those refusing to get the covid shot they are out there spreading covid as cases surge. We should have attained herd immunity by now had covid not become a political issue.
Could covid shut our nation down again the answer is yes unless people get off their asses and get the shot. The best thing you can do for your family members and friends is convince them to get the shot. The next 30 days will determine how bad this new out break will be.
My advice is wear your mask get the shot and continue to social distance until we get covid under control . We must continue to fight the big lie and those that deny the facts it is our patriotic duty to do so.
The facts are Florida has one of the greatest out breaks of covid in the world and there is no one to blame but Floridians and their republican government. Until we reach heard immunity covid is a real threat.
Fact is Trump supporters are 5 to 1 more likely to refuse the covid shot not on facts but on their political agenda. Wearing a mask is not a sign of weakness it is a sign of strength to defeat covid. Refusing to wear a mask is a sign of weakness in understanding the facts and science behind covid.
Not wearing a mask does not make you a patriot wearing a mask makes you a patriot because you put the health and well being of others before your self interest. The governor of Florida has to go and the people of Florida know what they have to do vote him out or impeach him.
My friends its been eight months since we appealed the deactivation of Kick Ass News and we still have heard nothing. After January 6th Facebook went bonkers enacted community standards so broad any post could be considered a violation of community standards .
Facebook has absolute over all our accounts and can do what they choose Facebook was once known for open debate but it seems they spend more time silencing voices these days. If Facebook wants to censor and silence our voices then maybe they should shut down all political groups and let a new platform emerge.
I for one am tired of having posts removed and thrown in fakebook jail for posts i know that does not go against their community standard.. My small group of kick azz news gets deactivated at least two times a week i appeal and have never lost an appeal that there just proves they are deactivating groups willy nilly without a ounce of proof.
The time has come to speak out and ask to be treated fairly because freedom of speech actually means something and truth matters.
My friends the writing is on the wall republicans have passed many laws that has made it harder to vote the only way republicans can win in many states is to exclude as many voters as possible. We must pass a federal voting bill we can no longer allow states to Taylor their elections after their political views or suppress voters just to stay in power.
Republicans know if they allow everyone eligible to vote vote they will lose both houses and will be booted from power in many states. Democrats are at a crossroads the people expect them to act if they don’t odds are Democrats will lose both the house and senate. We must not allow the filibuster to stand in our way the only way our democracy works the way it supposed to is protect the voters rights to vote that means a federal law.
