    American Hoax

    I was born into an American Hoax. The American dream is a farce. Our water is poisoned, our food is poisoned, our air is poisoned, our children are indoctrinated from birth. Babies are inoculated with poison vaccines. Public school teaches children what to think, not how to think...

    Yes, I am very proud to be an American

    as most all other citizens here in this nation are. I do support our military forces in keeping us safe from others who want to hurt and even kill us because of our traditional beliefs.

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...
