I actually watched season 1 and found it to be sort of propagandist, but not to the point where I couldn't overlook it and enjoy the show. But then I tried to watch season 2, and I literally turned it off 1 minute into the second scene because of the vomit inducing propaganda.

From mintpressnews.com: ‘Harvesting the Blood of America’s Poor: The Latest Stage of Capitalism’, Blood has become big business in the United States and there is no shortage of corporations ready to exploit America’s most vulnerable populations in order to get a piece of the pie’, Alan Macleod, Nov. 3, 2019

“For much of the world, donating blood is purely an act of solidarity; a civic duty that the healthy perform to aid others in need. The idea of being paid for such an action would be considered bizarre. But in the United States, it is big business.

Something to keep in mind…

as much of the

“Members of the House Judiciary Committee and other more liberal-minded lawmakers and congressional aides have been privately discussing the possibility of drafting articles that include obstruction of justice or other “high crimes” they believe are clearly outlined in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report — or allegations that Trump has used his office to benefit his bottom line.
Hey folks, Detroit here. I'm alive, I'm functioning, and I'm done with politics. Totally done. But when politics comes to ME, well, I'm gonna fucking say something.
So... got that lovely little notice in the mail. Jury duty. Fucking Jury Duty. Yeah, just what I fucking need, but hell with it, it's my civic duty, I'll go. And I'll do exactly what they tell me to do.
No one who's really paying attention should be the least bit surprised, especially those who don't pay attention to the stupid pageantry of the non-stop quadrennial circus, MSM debate/punditry barrage, that Kamala just dropped out. A couple of tweets at the end to cover the obvious.
