    Hold up! She just spoke on something very important as important as regulating the guns that I don’t think anybody bears in mind when these things happen: Child Trauma or just generally the after effects of such events. I have heard so many conversations about how to mitigate mass shootings but none of which has brought to light the trauma and overall effects and I think she’s on the right track.
    Ayanna: These shootings rob people of their lives, that’s right they aren’t lost they were stolen!
    Me: Excellent distinction!

    Another great interview. Ayanna is a powerful presence. If we survive the boomers leaving office, I think the new generation will make a much better democracy. Thank you again Trevor for another great interview!
    PS. I am from the boomer generation. But I get it

    I really hope we start to see more representatives like the squad. They aren’t the representatives we deserve, they are the representatives we need.

    But she didn’t answer the question. I’m glad of all the things she is implementing, but we SHOULD criminalize the employers of illegal immigrants then these raids will decrease greatly.

    What a shame. 40 years ago california passed laws forbiding open carry when,the black panthers walked in front of a court house with shotguns, saying it was time for black people to arm themselves. Ronald Regan and the NRA passed those gun laws. Now Prealey is aiming to remove even more rights from everyone to defend themselves, just as ICE is trying to bring us from num. one in prison population, to double second place in prison population. Say no to fascism. Dont work with the GOP on gun control so they can shift from the real issue and cause of terrorism; trump.

    She is very presidential. I hope to see her run in 2024 or 2028. She speaks clearly, concisely, effectively, and with intent.

    WHEN AN EDUCATED, SHARP AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN ENTERS THE ROOM… LOGIC AND COMPASSION RETURNS TO CENTER STAGE. SHE IS THE AMERICA I LOVE. TREVOR IS THE AMERICA I LOVE. PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT HUMAN LIFE, NOT JUST WHEN IT’S CONVENIENT FOR THEIR RELIGIOUS (SEE: POLITICAL AND OR LOBBYIST’S) BELIEFS.

    TO THE PERSON READING THIS… I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ENGAGE YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS… IN THE GROCERY STORE LINE, AT FAMILY GATHERINGS, WITH YOUR SORORITY/FRATERNITY, ON DATES… ANYWHERE. WHY?… BECAUSE AMERICAN BODIES ARE HITTING THE FLOOR… BY THE HANDS OF FELLOW AMERICANS… AND FOR WHAT?…

    “THE OCCUPANT” SUPPORTERS: “ALL LIVES MATTER!”
    EDIT BASED *ON REALITY*: “ALL LIVES MATTER!… EXCEPT… YOU KNOW, IF THEY DIE BY THE HAND OF A RADICALIZED DOMESTIC WHITE TERRORIST.”

    “THE OCCUPANT” SUPPORTERS: “AMERICA FIRST!”

    EDIT BASED *ON REALITY*: “AMERICA FIRST!… EXCEPT… WELL EXCEPT FOR THE TIME ‘M0$C0W MITCH’ SNUCK A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR DEAL WITH A HOSTILE NATION INTO KENTUCKY AS OPPOSED TO BOSSING UP AND FIGURING OUT HOW TO HAVE *AMERICAN POLITICIANS* HELP CREATE JOBS FOR AMERICANS… BEING SO WILDLY ‘AMERICAN’ IN THE WAY OF RACISM THAT YOU VOTE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WILL WHORE OUT YOUR COUNTRY, STATE, AND PEOPLE ENDANGERING OUR COLLECTIVE NATIONAL SECURITY FURTHER… FOR REGULAR JOBS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN CREATED HERE… IN AMERICA… ALREADY.” ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QihNK80b-ZE )

    “THE OCCUPANT” SUPPORTERS: “NEVER FORGET!”
    EDIT BASED *ON REALITY*: “NEVER FORGET!… YEAAAAH MAN, NEVER FORGET WHEN THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE MURDERED ON OUR SOIL BY TERRORISTS, EXCEPT FOR WHEN THOSE THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS ARE CASUALTIES OF THE DOMESTIC WHITE TERRORIST RACIST HATE… THEN YOU KNOW… IT SUCKS TO BE YOU BROSKI, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS BRUH, T’n’P. **#2NDAMENDMENTOVERYOURDEADBODY** … I MEAN, I CLAIM TO LOVE AMERICA **HARD** ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, BUT NAH BROSKI… IF YOUR LILLY WHITE, BLUE EYED BABY BLEEDS OUT SLOWLY ON A DIRTY WAL*MART FLOOR BECAUSE [INSERT WHITE MALE IN HIS 20s NAME HERE] DECIDED TO UNLEASH A SOULLESS, BOUNTY OF BULLETS… MURDERING INNOCENT AMERICANS, THEN YEAH BRUH… THEY TOOK THAT ‘L’… FOR ‘MURICA. #THOUGHTSANDPRAYERS”

    “THE OCCUPANT”: “I’M THE LEAST RACIST PERSON YOU KNOW!”
    EDIT BASED *ON REALITY*: “I WILL LITERALLY DO, ENABLE, CO-SIGN, FUND, UNDO LAWS, AND CREATE LAWS TO LIVE AND BREATH RACISM.”

    AMERICA, PICTURE YOU CHILD IN A CASKET. PICTURE THEM LAYING THERE. THEIR INNOCENT FACE… THEIR PLUMP CHEEKS FULL OF WHAT LOOKS LIKE LIFE… IMAGINE THEIR LITTLE BUTTON NOSE… IMAGINE THEIR WRINKLE-FREE FACES. IMAGINE THEM DEAD AND COLD IN THAT CASKET. THINK ABOUT HOW YOU WILL NEVER SEE THEM OFF ON THAT FIRST PROM DATE. THINK ABOUT HOW YOU’LL NEVER GET TO CHEER THEM ON DURING THEIR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION… NO WEDDING DAY… NO GRANDCHILDREN… NO LEGACY CONTINUED. STORIES LEFT UNTOLD. GAPING HOLES IN THE HEARTS OF EVERYONE IN YOUR COMMUNITY.

    NOW IMAGINE YOUR CHILD IN THAT CASKET OPENING THEIR EYES FILLED WITH TEARS ASKING, “MOMMY/DADDY, WHY DIDN’T YOU *DO* SOMETHING?… YOU COULD HAVE **DONE SOMETHING** MOMMY/DADDY!! I DIED TERRIFIED AND ALONE MOMMY/DADDY.”

    THINK. THINK AND VOTE.

    So intelligent, poised, ethical, and not afraid to speak up. The GOP has nightmares about people like her.

    Let’s look at the real matter truly at hand here as to why America is not getting any real work done in congress and make sense laws for all the people are not being passed.

    The majority (the people) are not running America but, the minority (those with wealth/money backing) greedy people are!

    The American people are being played by so, called congress and Trump/businessmen! The racist rhetoric playing one against another so that they can not see the forest for the trees, that is the under table deals going-on that do not benefit America as a whole. When will America wake up to see the real deal!

    Just an observation!

    Invalid because the definition of what learning is is being restricted

    Some people haven’t realized that learning isn’t only done in school and, in fact, these days school learning is becoming less and less relevant
