    Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.

      One need only look at the list of donors on their shows. They OWN PBS and use it to promote their agenda and outlook and generate good will among clueless sophisticates who maybe want to be manipulated.

        About how a NYC PBS show critical of the Kochs was cancelled and the production company self-censored as a result of Koch's interference (he lives in NYC and is a big donor to so-called "public" television)

          made only passing reference to climate change and its obvious role in making them worse and more frequent, obviously as the behest of Koch. This is a brilliant if evil strategy on their part, winning over people too sophisticated to be taken in by Fox by infiltrating "legitimate" shows that they have faith in.

            human evolution that, while otherwise really well done, repeatedly advanced the notion that climate chaos was responsible for human evolution.

            The series repeatedly tried to conflate climate trends that took thousands or tens of thousands of years to rapid man made warming, and portray it as a good thing.

            At the same time, they had a several million dollar display they funded at the Smithsonian advancing the same fringe "theory".

            Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
