The US is the reason there will be no peace in the middle east between Muslims and Jews. According to Wikipedia there are at present approx 8.5 million Israelis living in the state of Israel, of which approx 74% are of the Jewish faith. There is almost the same number of Jews living in America at 5.3 million as in Israel, that is a statistical fact.

SICKNESS that PERMEATES American Society

Americas 'silent majority' have risen from the hinterland of America and what they have shown us all is they are mostly white, they lack analytical intelligence, are irrational, are devoid of morality and are severely racist. They would sooner put their lives and their country in the hands of white right wing fascists and bring on the darkness tyranny, than try to live in harmony with the new emerging brown and black skinned rising majority.

The best thing we can do is grab "this one" first.

...What would you Suggest?

What other high profile figure can make this work?

Security, Secret Service, etc. (Trump's)

$1,000,000.00 per day for four years = $1,460,000,000.00. If that amount could be cut by one half, 365,000,000 trees could be planted (at $2.00 ea.) with the savings.


Hope you had a lovely thanksgiving my American friends, although for the life of me , i have no idea why we (including Canadians)celebrate this event (ours is the second Monday in October), because for north American aboriginals , it was the beginning of their holocaust at the hands of white European settlers , soon to call themselves Americans and Canadians to a much lesser extent, a moment in time that would dwarf what the nazis did to the Jews in WW2.
