  1. This is the man who, at the beginning of his power was hailed as a “progressive” modern leader!

    I had a student whose father was from Syria. She used to tell the class stories about visits to her grandparent’s farm in Syria. Luckily, the grandparents came to the US for safety before things got really bad. Bet they miss their goats!

    Tyrants, David, you surely know how to pick them! ❀ Hope all is well!
