I believe they call that Rattle and Humming.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... Aha-ah...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one



I demand a 50 year moratorium on this song. It’s treacly garbage Written by an overrated wife beater. Plus it’s just an awful song. Can we stop quoting it and playing it for a good long while please? And yes, I know this is the anniversary of his death but this guy was a piece of garbage.

Here's a recap, it also includes events that took place before his Presidency


Oh and apologies for the Lennon quote if anyone feels it necessary that I apologize. I had just watched the documentary which didn't mention the part that he was a woman beater. It did mention that Yoko wrote most if not all of the lyrics of that song

Oh ffs. Yes, it's acknowledged he beat his first wife. However he consistently said in interviews he regretted ever doing it. This is not excusing Lennon but people need to remember that people change and grow and regret their actions. Ringo beat his wife but ain't nobody calling him out for it.

Back in September or October of 2016, I saw Clock DVA open for Meat Beat Manifesto. Each performance had video of then Candidate Trump exploding......this is when I first realized Trump had a shot at beating Crooked Hillary.

Kushner set up shell company that diverted campaign cash to Trump family members

Jared Kushner helped set up a shell company that secretly paid President Donald Trump’s family members and spent nearly half of his 2020 campaign’s funds.

The president’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser directed his sister-in-law Lara Trump, Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew John Pence and Trump campaign CFO Sean Dollman to sit on the shell company’s board, a source familiar with the operation told Business Insider.



The company, which was incorporated as American Made Media Consultants Corporation and American Made Media Consultants LLC, spent $617 million of the campaign’s $1.26 billion war chest, according to campaign finance records.


Trump’s top advisers and campaign staff told Insider they were unaware of how the shell company operated, and campaign officials even conducted an internal audit of its operations under former campaign manager Brad Parscale but never reported those findings, and the next campaign manager Bill Stepien had little involvement with AMMC.

“Nothing was done without Jared’s approval,” said a former advisor to Trump’s 2016 campaign. “What Stepien doesn’t know is because Jared doesn’t want him to know.”


The nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center filed a civil complaint in July with the Federal Election Commission accusing the campaign of disguising” about $170 million in spending “by laundering the funds” through AMMC.

“[It’s a] scheme to evade telling voters even the basics on where its money is really going [and a] shield to disguise the ultimate recipients of its spending,” said Brendan Fischer, the center’s director of federal reform.



The Department of Justice may open a criminal investigation if the government suspects the payments were a “knowing and willful” violation of election law.

Several sources from the Justice Department and FEC told Insider that investigators may already be looking into the campaign’s activity.

“Lara Trump and John Pence resigned from the AMMC board in October 2019 to focus solely on their campaign activities, however, there was never any ethical or legal reason why they could not serve on the board in the first place,” said Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s communications director. “John and Lara were not compensated by AMMC for their service as board members.”

The blatant corruption just goes on and on. Yet some people on here would still believe that Trump is still for them and the workers. Morons.

Fuck me, more Bytorisms.

I shall not click on that link.
I shall not click on that link.
I shall not click on that link.....

Bytor, and the 70+ million who voted for Trump, ARE part of the problem/corruption. I have no patience/sympathy for them. In other eras, I'd be "respect political differences" and all. But Trumpism is/was an absolute fucking disgrace. Anybody who supports what Trump has done since the election can go fuck themselves.

That link was the scariest propaganda made in the western civilised world since Hitler in WOII
