The Rise of Global Neo-Feudal Fascism

This isn't done more to continue...

So I spent my breastfeeding time this morning battling several nasty internet trolls on the comments feed over the teenager shot in Ferguson. I won't bore you with the details of the story since most of you know it. I just know one thing, police are getting more and more corrupt globally.

And the big one when I was stuck in union park for nine years, to actually own a house in Winter Park. Being a Winter Park resident has been a huge boon for my family and children's…

Home of the Slave, Land of the Fee. My own Tidbits of ranting!

Hey all, I would like to share what I think, but you may not like it, feel free to respond! I am just worried about the world my children will inherit someday and the obvious prevarications I witness on the mainstream media are starting to really get under my skin. These are political theories and thoughts based on lots of breastfeeding and tedious research. Oh why can't I just watch soap operas and spend time on piniterest and facebook like other stay at home…
