24. I am just thinking that we need to separate the people that are in power
from the people that are not. I agree that the legislators, like those in Wisconsin, are our enemies but I just think we need to find a way to come together with the victims of all of the propaganda. This conditioning has been going on for years, while the left was asleep the PTB were creating monsters. God, even my own sister is hypnotized, only because she is far away in another state and a FOX news, and AM radio watcher and listener. And for reals, this is a liberal woman but she doesn't know it and it is too hard to help her because she is so far away. She needs a reconditioning camp as do all of them.
