  • Ah, its wonderful being from Indiana right now. Why the hell does a state that NEVER attracts any attention, other than for being Letterman's home state.... Well, now its mayor pete, the crazy AG elvis impersonator, for fucks sake pence....ugh. Indiana is going to be kicked out of the union, no succession, just kicked out. Like a little island of the most rejected state ever, who, after being replaced by Puerto Rico (so no one had to change the flag), had a huge border wall build along the Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, and Ohio borders so that none of those Hoosiers could ever establish such horror and disgust from the 50 states again.

  • Im from tennessee. Gender is a required check box for voter registration. It only has 2 options, Male or Female. Im a straight male, but gender has nothing to do with sex. It seems to me that the people in charge are living in the fucking 1900s still. a lot of change needs to happen. Thank you John for showing me (not only in this video, but many others) how fucked our officials are in a Country that “does not discriminate based on race, religion, sex”.

  • Notice how Paxton, when he spews his "bathroom scare" fearmongering nonsense, he does not address it to potential WOMEN using those women's locker rooms or women's public restrooms. He directly addresses all the other MEN, asking them to imagine a fictional "trans-for-a-day" skirt-wearing hetero cis man walking into THEIR DAUGHTERS' locker rooms. So he isn't even concerned about women being potentially harassed. He scares other Republican men with the idea of some male pervent using the teenage male fantasy of walking into the girls' locker room and coveting their male property, I mean, their daughters.

  • 🍒🍒judgment that is not physically, mentally, and spiritually beneficial is useless therefore has no true value. Without judgment progress cannot be made. For no one can express or receive love or any other desired emotion in its entirety if the don't know themselves. We are all not created equal however we all have a equal obligation to living up to the pleasure, potential, and responsibility of femininity and masculinity. So do your best to become physically fit, mentally sound, and spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom. Which can be accomplished through clean air, water, fitness, and high sources of nutrition organic and non-genetically modified would be best. Plus formal education or real hands-on experience. When one learns the body's capabilities and limitations by fully engaging with all their senses to their extreme limits in the most efficient way that is humanly possible. The subconscious then begins to naturally subconsciously systematically coincide with the mind-body souls spirit mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world and the most efficient way that is humanly possible. Thus yielding the best spiritual kickback for one's efforts accomplishments experiences. You might want to take these points to heart Considering the simple logic if life is not free, why the hell would death be any cheaper? It's not the question the common, basic, average, normal man or woman may be able to wonder is what is the spiritual cost to one's own soul and spirit for freely living dying off having only used the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential they are first born with. Not to add insult to injury for the last hundred and 50 years or so the mass majority of the population has been living and dying yielding the worst spiritual kickback that has ever been manifested since the beginning of life only getting worse. And that has nothing to do with everybodys so-called charming personality and everything to do with the standards of quality pertaining to our air, water, foods, landscapes, working/living environment, every day home products, habitats, and ecosystems. Which is ignorant beyond retarded (no offense to any disabled people.) When you consider for the last 490 years Give or take we have had the manpower woman influence or vice versa to have created clean high paying jobs from coast-to-coast globally that would improve upon and maintain the quality of our life in such a manner. That the mass majority of the population from coast-to-coast globally would naturally, gradually, and systematically start becoming stronger, smarter, healthier, happier, better off physically, mentally, and financially possibly spiritually then the previous generation. Now I would like to resurrect the wish and prayer I made prior to my 8th birthday which was to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim to the way I'm living personally and professionally. I guarantee you never see or hear another body, man or woman in power, persons of legal, religious authority, or leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty one reason they don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs at heart a another reason could be they cum from a bloodline of cowards or simply have a lifestyle that suggests, confirms, and validates them as being feebleminded physically inadequate submissive subservient which it doesn't get any worse than that. One is genetically inherited and the other is a simple generic learned behavior. Quite possible to be a combination of these worst-case scenarios nonetheless either way it is physically, mentally, and spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner. Especially if that ignorant stupidity, weak, lonely desperation stems from being soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, undernourished, overworked, and underpaid with a dirty low-paying job that comes from outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides, and chemicals that never change their killing composition. Which means simpletons whether it is a solid, liquid, or burnt off into our airways atmosphere as a vapor it is always going to be poisonous, debilitating, and deadly to the body at the same time polluting, corrupting, and devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. There is no cash profit to be made in the demise of the planet. Thanks to those dirty low-paying jobs we are in the mist of environmental financial global collapse. The good news souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of those dirty low-paying jobs. The even better news that the common, basic, average, normal man woman may be able to comprehend his souls and spirits have been are being managed, directed, maintained, and implemented with all the disease, sickness, illness, pain, suffering, injury, abuse, neglect, hunger, addiction, sadness, anger, and hyper- aggressive violence. That has been allowed to occur manifesting throughout the history of mankind into what it is today thanks to people like Donald Trump who have the false belief if the mass majority of the population is at their worst they will feel less afraid inferior to the true potentials of love, honor, and the creation of life. Here's the deal you're either part of the world solutions or exacerbating the planets problems there is no safe in between. Either way no matter how you look at it each and every moment of every life has been spiritually accounted for. S.R.F.

  • One would think an A.G. would be a "pay it forward" kind of person. Not a "steal it if is valuable" kind. If one is dishonest for small issues, they are dishonest for big issues. That is if there really was a "pen" incident or if that was just a bit by his opponent. I was kind of expecting a cameo by Rachel Ray.

  • Hey! "Haven't thought enough about it" is the best friggin' reason to not vote, ever. It's honest and responsible. He STARTED this episode stating how none of these people know who their AG is... so none of you mofos HAVE thought enough about it to warrant casting a f***ing intelligent vote, now have you? Down right reckless to cast a vote for something you know Jack crap about. That's how we end up with marketing determining our leaders instead of actual ability or policy. Do the work, or just leave it blank. I'm not going to lie... I too fail to research everything on the ballot because I have things to do... like comment on VIworld videos that are probably months old. 😬 but I will NOT cast a vote on what I failed to research because that's just voting for a letter next to a name or a title to a proposition that doesn't represent what it is or the crazy crap they tacked on to that proposition.
