  • Depending on the person, some news reporters are respected and others aren't. Intelligent people understand that it's an individual thing and don't even think in terms of all X is bad or all Y is good. In this particular case it's not the ABC-7 reporter who is believed. It is the unaltered video footage that is believed. Billy "Bunchies" spoke words and behaved exactly like Trump supporters in Charlottesville and at many of the Trump campaign rallies.

    A news reporter didn't throw that punch shown on the video. That was Billy boy.

    Choosing between two underfunded options is not really a choice. The scholarships move money out of the Chicago machine and into choice.

    Give your money to neighborhood schools. The greedy charter owners just want profit and do not want to pay to educate working class kids.

Vegan Outreach

Looking to join forces with other vegans in the Rogers Park area. I have vegan starter kits and flyers to hand out. This is vegan outreach and informing the public of the atrocities of slaughterhouses. We could make signs and hold vigils, hold witness but that can be decided as a group. Also to be discussed, to stay independent or create a save group associated with an established group. Would like to meet once a week for a few hours. Please email plantpowor@gmail.com if interested in meeting.

Help end the suffering of animals, reduce global warming and improve human health
