So much B S…. Joe Biden just met with Vladimir Putin 2 days ago. Today, the Biden Administration put a hold on $100 million in aid for Ukraine. Sounds like Quid Pro Quo. It’s amazing that it took this long to do that I'd rather Congress pass the voting rights bill, and make election day a federal holiday, in place of the Juneen one.

Want slavery to end? Don’t elect another Democrat to office! But how can you explain this to all the people who have protested against the Critical Race theory , the people who don't want their children learning the truth about slavery etc , now what are they supposed to tell their children who they have been protecting from the truth .

Time's are a Changing 1006 Hey 'SNL'... You gettin' THIS?...
