If you've been preparing a book for 25 years, you're probably not qualified to write it.
This is one of three books, actually. One is nonfiction and almost ready for publication, two are novels.

How long does it take you to do research when you write a book, out of curiosity? Also, what are the titles? I'd like to read one of yours.

Defin "mass shooting", if you would.

There is no Deep State. That is a fabrication by Qanon.

You can find plenty on Google if you care to look. Here are some about Mexico that I just found though.

There was a proposal after OKC to add taggants to gunpowder and explosives for easy identification in case of a bomb. It was shot down by the republicans because the NRA objected.

Then again, the NRA has been a terrorist organization for years.

Translation - "I've never actually seen a racist tweet, but they were talking about them on the view. Sure there are racists tweets, here's a link. But any that you quote aren't the ones i was talking about."

Self quote from another thread of a similar subject that also fits here in reply to your post;

Quote:
Well the first question needs to be who owned the land to begin with?

The second question is who actually took (theft as you put it ) the land?

The third question would be if it were to continue to be part of the USA or a sovereign nation?

The 4th question would be how to compensate those who have since purchased the land?

-----

Have you thought through any of those questions and answers?

OP, why didn't you bring this up last year when three black nationalists killed eight white people?

(If it was because you didn't know about it, then okay; the media intended for you not to know).
