No need to imagine living in a socialist America, we had one, it was called "The New Deal."


Yes, that's why some called it the good old days. It was something different despite I'm sure, the discriminatory means and methods it was applied during that period under Jim Crow.

While some got a " Deal" under capitalism after the Great Depression, most suffered the effects of genocide, war, slavery, colonization, apartheid, Nazism, fascism, militarization, death; and recently, good and bad terrorist, smog, pollution, pandemics, laws prohibiting public use of all but modified foods, medicines, air and water, ethnic and religious intolerance and global warming.

I'd say, things aren't looking too bad for socialism about now.

No man can serve two masters...

Unless his master is created in his own image, he will try.

Those stupid white men don't like those stupid white women hoes so they will either kill them or give them to you black men because they show more stupidity and filth then those other white women do,plus they don't mind having sex with any race of men_Didn't they kill Marilyn Monroe? She must have been a hoe_All of those white women are stupid and those white men hate it when they show how stupid they are as white women that those white men feel as they disgraced the whole stupid white race people_Those white people did not ever think that you black men/guys/boys would not ever find out how stupid they were and about the only reason that yall found out it because they would not stop being stupid (in other words they are stuck on stupidity)__usfg/cia/mrd

Greetings Harb...

I want to take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful day and week. I also would like to note and have previously commented on how I admire your ability to write the way you do.

Although I have noticed a familiar theme in what you write about, I see it as a benefit to be able to connect with the inner reaches of pain and triumph the way you have. That forms your psychology of the experiences that shape your expressive views of the world.

Not wanting to seem non-empathetic, I submit to you this simple phrase: The devil is a liar.

Seek those spirits or energy's within you from where your talents and creativity come from. You seem to give far over to mistrust and confusion and have allowed it too much control over better nature.

I know because I am a personal witness.

Purely in a spiritually Figurative sense as a wise man once said: Peter Tosh "...Everybody want to go to heaven But nobody want to die..."

Ashay.
