Please use the Forum's Amazon Link this Holiday Season

As you shop this holiday season, please remember to use the forum's Amazon.com link (listed in the menu as "Amazon Link") to add items to your cart and purchase them. The forum gets a small commission from every item sold.

Additionally, the forum gets a "bounty" for various offers at Amazon.com. For instance, if you sign up for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, the forum will earn $3. Same if you buy a Prime membership for someone else as a gift! Purchasing an Audible membership will earn the forum a few bucks. And creating an Amazon Business account will send a $15 commission our way.

If you have an Amazon Echo, you need a free trial of Amazon Music!! We will earn $3 and it's free to you!

Your personal information is completely private, I only get a list of items that were ordered/shipped via the link, no names or locations or anything. This does not cost you anything extra and it helps pays the operating costs of this forum which continue to go up as our commissions have gone down. Stay safe and well and thank you for your participation in the Forum and for your support!! --Deborah

    Subject change .......

    This was forwarded to me by a friend of the same political persuasion, who, like me, has argued that the central threat to American democracy isn't activist organizations like BLM or any number of organizations that have trashed the concepts of civil order, the role of responsible government to enforce it through law enforcement and core democratic principals.

    It is what this author describes as Autocracy.Inc, a conglomerate of foreign autocrats - the bad guys. The list is long and you know who they are. They control the levers of governments in the countries they preside over to thier benefit and to the neglect of the citizens living under their rule. Their sole goal is to enrich themselves and their cronies and remain in power whatever it takes.

    The degree to which the bad guys are infiltrating and manipulating organizations like BLM and US Educational as well as many other established and reputable aid and think tank organizations both in the US and abroad is astonishing. In fact one can make a case that the US government itself is being victimized with the last 4 years of the Donald Trump presidency an example.

    The number of autocracies has grown in the last several decades, they cooperate with each other on multiple levels to include dissemination of anti-American and/or anti-democracy propaganda, financing each other's failing economies through illicit monetary gains and subverting sanctions imposed by Western democracies to punish them. This cooperation is a means of survival and the result is the perpetuation and growth of this league of dangerous autocrats ...... "The Bad Guys Are Winning."

    Read the link. It's long and very disturbing.

    A private entity can give an award to whatever person or group they wish. It’s a subjective award that is given out by a private university. They could give a Pulitzer for “50 Shades of Gray,” “Battlefield Earth,” and “Congo” if they wish. There is no way this would go to trial and if it did, it would be a laughingstock.

    Meanwhile over in the Arbery trial, Travis McMichael has taken the stand. Which I think you kinda gotta do when you make a self-defense argument.
