thanks koz.

i must say, i was impressed with the depth of thought shown by brown. he is a thinker and a surprisingly nuanced thinking (for his age) on many important issues. he also seems to have a strong sense of ethics.

i like the kid.  ;D
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

He says this about Trump:

“I just think Trump’s character and some of his values makes him unfit to lead,” said Brown. “For someone like him to be president, and in charge of our troops? It’s scary to be honest.”

Nice interview! Idk how one can become fluent in a language and then “lose it” (he probably became “good” at Spanish), but he seems like an impressive young guy!

Meh it's politics and none of them are for us. Not Red Not Blue Not Them Not You. NONE.

Anyone who spends millions to make hundreds is getting their ROI when we're not looking.

We go to far left we adjust by going to far right then we adjust and go to far left and adjust and go to far right. It's the American way.

I agree and couldn’t have said it more concisely, TP.

It's a good read. Nothing terribly new here but it's always interesting to see an athlete interviewed for an outlet that doesn't do sports.

Easy. It happens all the time, and it happens to people with the native tongue as well. Here's an interesting read on the topic:
