    Default After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, Americans came together. Have we lost that capacity?

    The reasons why Americans might not be inclined to join forces in a crisis are themselves examples of the country’s divide — and of its history as a nation born in disunity. On the left, many blame Republicans for fomenting suspicion of others, whether they be foreigners, immigrants or minorities. On the right, many say Democrats have splintered the nation by emphasizing ethnic, racial and gender identities.

    The Oligarchs are flush with money, life is good.
    It's the Jesus Freaks.
    They were so close ... So Close to seizing Power with Trump. They could taste it
    A Cross on every mountaintop, a Prayer in every school, the Ten Commandments in every courthouse.
    An 'Ayatollah for Life' with Trump.
    The 'Christian Republic of America' ... it. was. right. there!

    Nothing to do with religion. They're just stooges of the oligarchy.

    My view is that the 'Oligarchs' (the Wealthy) control the Government. Whether Republican or Democrat or anything else, the Capitalists are the ones that pull the strings.

    Your Question: "Americans came together. Have we lost that capacity?". Is more about the Worker Drones.
    You know, it was always advantageous for the Plantation Owner to keep the White Sharecropper fighting with the Black Sharecropper and vice versa.

    After Biten fucked up the Afghanistan withdrawal no US soldier or ally should ever trust the US government to fight a war again.

    See, this is where you fail. Keep them both satisfied and offer incentives for good work. That's what makes everybody happy.

    My old family farm was bought by a black sharecropper that worked it for years and he bought up some neighboring property, too.
    His offspring own that land to this day.
    He's doing quite well.
    Meanwhile, I gotta go maintain the land my family donated and designated for a graveyard because no one has been doing it lately.
    It is what it is. I'm making zero profit, and probably spending a few hundred, but that sharecropper's kid is making bank!

    I'm not jealous and he deserves whatever he makes. God bless him.
