  1. I think for many, simply hearing thoughts like this put to paper is enough to crack the facades that have been erected by propaganda and indoctrination. You might not change people’s minds instantly but over time the facades will crumble. Good stuff.

    Although every person is entitled to their own opinion ,these people have taken your post and made it their own in so many ways. I am not pleased with the photo either way but for that site to change it ,photo shop it, it just as sad as the photo. Isn’t their a law about that?
