Trump Assassination

Quite moving to hear your thoughts on a such a shocking event. I felt the same.

P. S. Doff ,

Yep.

I just listened to the Dr Ashley Frawley episode. Absolutely fascinating, particularly as I count myself as a leftie but am sick to death of the way it has taken the wrong road and turned on its base. In the course of googling her work, I also found that she’s a bit of a babe and so I had a brief daydream where she seizes my means of production* and we live happily ever after. Keep up the good work!

* I suspect this is one of the few podcasts where such a crude remark won’t get me cancelled!

Auron McIntyre Episode

Interesting and well informed discussion. But why do Americans always ‘go ahead’ and do something instead of just doing it??
