The Brits are the classic baddies we love to hate.
Satanism in popular culture: what is the Church of Satan?
On Twitter, the Church declared in November 2018: “Veganism (a diet) is not Satanism (a religion), but there are some Satanists who are vegans and some vegans who are Satanists. One is not a subset of the other.”

Hey There, Its EDB here, that’s Erik DeSean Barrett for long, and if you’re reading this when its released, on Tuesday, 16:03:2021. Then you are well into your Day, which has realized that the struggle is no longer how do we get shots, nor how to we get them in them arms, but how do we convince people to sit their asses down and get shot up!!

This is as simple as it gets
The only cure for your anxious mind is solidarity. This is a summary/review of a new podcast I came across, The Entry Level Left Podcast. I’ll link it at the bottom.

COVID-19 and Its Effects on European Countries

Bernie Sanders: Loses the Nomination, Wins the Internet
