Maybe Ms. Hannah-Jones needs to consider these factors:
Anybody who wants an education has to first get serious about getting an education. Nobody is going to spoon-feed them. Do these students spend time after school studying? Does their city have a public library? Do they read books? Do they sp...

There would be no Ukraine situation as it exists because the U.S. and Russia would be too busy having a proxy war in Syria with Al Qaeda as our ally. And John McCain would be delighted.

The Patriot Act probably never would have passed had Congress known to what extent it would really be used. It's a perfect example of what happens when our civil liberties are forfeited in the name of national security.
Any new gun laws would be abused as well. I'm convinced. When George W. Bush...

Why do a study? It's no surprise. The ones who loan the money to our government dominate our policies and control both major political parties. And our entire monetary system operates on debt. It's been designed that way for the past 100 years.
