    Not only that, it has allowed politically connected corporations and individuals to line their pockets with trillions of our tax dollars.

    Freedoms curtailed, propaganda spread, two trillion dollars spent, and over 4,000 military personnel dead.

    That's nothing short of treason.

    I was in the office ready to go out to a job site. The office had set chairs around a television somebody had brought in. I didnít have time to watch and I had a job to do.
    The Green New Deal is the Fyre Festival of legislative proposals. Everyone spends all their money on what's promised to be an amazing destination only to get there and find yourself sleeping in a tent and selling your soul for a bottle of Evian.

    Exactly. 911 made clear that what had to be done was surveil Americans 24/7 to remain vigilant against foreign terrists, thus opening a new era of fear and distrust well suited for high tech "solutions".
