The next generation of farmers a west virginia community formed group is raising funds to acquire land for future growers in a former coal region. The west virginia green commons looks to buy an eighty two acre farm in fayette county with a ninety nine year lease according to ian mcsweeney with the agrarian trust which is working with the mountain state group.

Checkouts more news weather on our website at heart and newsfeed dot com sleeping bags so adam cook former military member himself. So he's coming from that perspective. If you want to join us six zero three two eight three sixty one sixty. We're going to go back to your calls and we'll give me update on what's happening. But i remembered. I spaced out right for the the end of the last segment. And we were talking about the hypocrisy of the right and the left and how i the right wingers or against the left wing people that are having protests. 'cause it's on quote violent even though the majority of them were completely peaceful and now and then of course the right wingers at the time were pro police will now the right wing is turning against the cops and good for them but now now the right wing. Supporting protests against the cops and other. Left-wing is against the protests and for the cops and you had the same behavior coming from consistency from people. Just yeah and so then. I pointed out you're talking about how like it wasn't just this. This has been going on for for a long time so you can go back over the last two decades for instance and look at the left wing and their antiwar left. During george bush. They disappeared during barack obama. And you made the point that they didn't come back during trump. And that's where. I spaced. On what i was going to say. And then i remembered right after we ended the segment. That what i wanted to say was the antiwar left or the left in general because the left in general sort of has this sort of demeanor of. We're less against war. Even though it's there's no real evidence for it the the left wing politicians are just as warmongering as as their right wing counterparts. So because they don't get held accountable and then here's what happened during trump was even though yes he did. Drop some bombs quite a few and killed some innocent people. No doubt about it. I'm not gonna take that away from him but he actually did do remove some troops from some of the places they were stationed and he did not start any new wars and he actually went to kim jong un and had meetings with the attempt to actually try to broker some peace between south and north korea which had never happened in the history of every president since the formation of north korea so trump actually deserve some credit for doing at least a little bit of some semi antiwar things compared to his predecessors kind of antiwar things. That's the best i can say but but my point was going to be the. Left-wing criticized him for this. They did every time. Trump pulled troops out of afghanistan or syria or wherever he pulled troops out of the left wing. Was like who the terrorists are gonna take over. Oh my god.
