    Good evening America,
    Most of our readership are headline readers and scanners with a pre conceived opinion.
    Basically if your retirement funds are with an ESG investment firm you will retire a bitter, old. Poor person. ESG is a stupid way to invest YOUR money…you will have no money.
    Thank you America,

    I don’t want to do business with Citizens Property Insurance, our State-run “woke” insurance company – can these clowns remove the Citizens’ surcharge from my homeowner’s policy?

    Every time a politician uses the word “woke,” I know that he/she does not know the meaning of the word. It’s become the catchphrase of the demagogues. Excuse me while I eat my wokeeos for breakfast.
