  1. haley was up at the shops today working 50 million different jobs as different people the world population of females is very low

  2. This just illustrates the insincerity of the Democratic party. She is not an atypical daughter of an inner city low income single mother. Somehow she managed to go to a private school in Santa Monica with tuition fees of $34K to $42K pa. How are poor kids, regardless of their ethnicity, supposed to afford an education like that in her vision of the New World? It would have meant more if they found someone who went to a State School in the Projects.

  3. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness; I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more.
    ( Anne Frank murdererd by Nazis 1944)

  4. Thank you for your brilliance and saying the words that we ALL need to hear! So eloquently stated. Now I have the words to express to all my coworkers that truly do not understand the harm and devolution of Trump presidency without just sounding like a "democrat."

  5. Wow!! What can I say?? I think, EVERYONE, that Amanda Gorman might ONE DAY be our future President of the United States!! So proud of her!!!

  6. Basically , Gorman's regurgitating James Brown's 1968 " Say it Loud , I'm Black I'm proud ." Yawn … Want Poetry ? Read Rimbaud's Illuminations , William Blake' s " Innocence & Experience " or John Ashbery's " Self-portrait in a Convex Mirror " . Gorman was ONLY there because she's Black and a Woman . She writes poems , she is NOT a poet .

  7. China is economically invading developing countries through neocolonialism.
    In developing countries, economic collapse has occurred and economic refugees are occurring.
    Many refugees have been generated by this refugee and the coup led by China.
    This refugee is rushing to Europe and the United States.
    The world must stop China's neocolonialism.
    But Mr.Biden isn't trying to stop China's violence.
    President Obama's globalization and China-focused policies, China strengthened its military and economic power and its political voice.
    And in naval power, China has surpassed the United States.
    Mr. Biden is trying to shift to a policy that emphasizes China.
    It hasn't happened yet.

  8. She is on her journey she just beginning to see her future in front of her she will be a great poet a great speaker and one day she might run for president one day I know her mom is so proud of her enjoy your journey

  9. Hitler Hated ARTS especially writing, POETRY, etc; Yes, ( yet , Know this…) culture shall endure bullying, even bullets!! (Police Brutality, a knee at the Neck…!)
