    I appreciate you sharing that. I think you may be overstating the impact of being a Trump-voter though. There were 75m people who voted for him so "cancelling" (whatever that means) is not going to happen in almost every situation. However, being part of the attempted insurrection on January 6th is a whole different can o worms.
    You have immeasurable freedoms in the US compared to Russia (regardless of what time frame we are talking about). However, I fully agree with you that the hypocrisy and frankly, cynicism in this country is maddeningly out of control. We are losing our integrity as a country and that is a serious issue.
    My oldest is in kindergarten so I can't speak to any type of brainwashing going on with her at school at this point. However, she has been remote the entire school year and I have been working from home every day with her and I can say that their curriculum is pretty much what I would expect it to be. Math, reading, science and a bit of social studies all mixed in with proper social skills. No complaints from me so far.

    Liberal pussies in this country have been trying to ruin this country since the Bush election controversy. Good thing we won't have the need to have a draft any longer for a war or we would get our asses kicked with the candyasses in this country at this point in time.

    Grey, wait until kids go to middle school and then high school. That is when brainwashing starts and in college, it is the worst. It also depends on which part of NY you live in. On Long Island, it is not bad at all but in NYC it is definitely noticeable. Schools send out emails to parents and teaching kids about white privilege, white guilt and etc... My problem is not the existence of current critical race theory, some of the stuff that is presented today to us about the past is true, I get it and I can look at things with a nuance. My biggest issue is being judged based on outside factors, the way I look. Nobody knows how hard it was for me to achieve things in life, the fact that many started working at 15 years of age being an immigrant, and hear tons of rejection after college and etc. I didn't have any privilege but I have been told that because I am white and have blue eyes, things probably came easy, and nothing can be farther from the truth. Those are the resembles and experiences that I had in Russia, being judged by how I look or how I am seen by the "elite" or "Utopians". And the last thing I wanted to mention was the fucking lists. I knew about a black lists when I was 7 years old. That's the scary part. We escaped that shit, and now we hear of Progressives creating these lists. And I am not talking about putting politicians on the list who objected to Trump's election results in 2020, as troubling as that is, but I am talking about lists that some idiots within private companies now create if they suspect that you are a Republican or may have voted from Trump or for a Republican for that matter.

    So, there are a lot of similarities and the scary part is it feels so familiar to me.

    Thanks for sharing that 09. I am from here and also worked my azz off , eventually graduated law school and built a pretty successful practice in 5 years. My parents were great parents and we weren’t poor by any means but I had no financial backing. I did it all myself. To hear this white privileged, white guilt shit is ridiculous. Now, I can take a ride down 95-South to Westport, Darien, Greenwich, etc and find a whole lot of white privilege. When I started my Law practice I would go to the clients house to sign them up. I can’t tell you how many times I walked into a house with the thought of “am I being set up”. Fortunately that never happened. On the flip side, others in my position that I know it had a ton of financial backing and didn’t need to hit the pavement like me. I’m 5 years I’ve handled about 800 cases and have only been fired twice; once because the guy was a friend of mine that thought I wouldn’t work hard on his case (the lawyer he fired me for ended up blowing the statute of limitations for his case and committed malpractice) and the other one was a obsessive compulsive roid head that ended up calling me recently to transfer his file back to me because his lawyer never answers the phone. Black people have helped me So much while most whites people I know were just envious of what I was doing. I hate hearing generalizations about myself because it is all BS

    A lot to unpack in this and subsequent posts. I don't want to draw this out into a whole big thing but, I fully recognize I asked you for more details and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. I'll circle back shortly.

    I had no idea that you went to law school! Don't take this the wrong way but, I would never have guessed you a lawyer just based off your posts (and your handle...ok, so he kept the shootout against the Caps alive when Malik won it with his between the legs miracle but, Jason Strudwick..."the best"? haha!).
    What type of law do you practice? Where did your clients come from when you got your start?

    Lol and my horrible grammar I use when posting. I’m a personal injury lawyer so I guess I’m an ambulance chaser. When I first started I advertised on stop and shop gas station pumps. A company put a 30 second video and business cards. That was an unbelievable form of advertising for a PI lawyer. Nobody cared I looked like I was 25 years old. Then the idiot that ran it argued with the big wigs at SS and they pulled the ads. The ad guy was penny wise, dollar dumb. I think people liked the solo lawyer look rather than a law office especially millennials who want to use their phone for everything and deal with the least amount of people. I got stuck with a decent bill though from Law school so I am still working hard to pay off these damn loans!
