Who you gonna trust?
« on: July 18, 2019, 12:03:11 am »
Ran across this recently, and thought I'd share as it makes total sense to me.


The United States has become a place where media personalities, pro athletes and Hollywood entertainers are mistaken for people of importance (and we might add politicians).
 
Iíve needed a doctor.
Iíve needed a teacher
I need farmers every day.
Iíve also needed an auto mechanic, house painter, plumber and a lot of other hard working people.
 
But I have never, not even once, NEEDED a pro athlete, media personality or Hollywood entertainer for anything!

Thank you Daniel I thought that I was the only one that thought this. Real tired of hearing them spout off about all these issues only because they have a platform to spew it from. We all have a brain and we know the difference between right & wrong so we donít need some celebrity telling us there opinions or how to vote. Sorry, Iíll get of the soapbox now.

I hate this false surface culture we're going through.

Hypocricy is the name of the game. The mentally limited are running media today and setting the tune to our destruction, less we throw them out.
