A scam call? I'm guessing yes.

Prerecorded message saying my social security and driver's license #s are going to
be blocked because of something to do with a legal matter and that I had to call
them right back to take care of the problem. Which I didn't do.

As many expected all along, Ohio GOP Sen. Rob Portman doesn't want to hear any witnesses

As many expected all along, Ohio GOP Sen. Rob Portman doesn’t want to hear any witnesses during Donald Trump’s
impeachment trial.


Sen. Rob Portman will vote to acquit President Donald Trump in a Senate impeachment trial that Sen. Sherrod Brown called a “sham” for not allowing more witnesses and documents.

But as the Senate prepared for its 51-49 late-afternoon vote that defeated a push to call additional witnesses, Brown, a Democrat, pushed for deliberations on Trump’s guilt or innocence to be open so the public can watch.

Portman, in a statement announcing his plan to vote for acquittal, said Trump’s asking Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden while delaying aid to the country was “wrong and inappropriate” but does not rise to the level of removal from office.

But Brown joined Senate Democrats in calling an acquittal of the president without the testimony of additional witnesses and the admission of other documents a “sham.” He planned to introduce a motion that would require deliberations be open to the public.

Portman, in also voting against additional witnesses, said allowing them would have delayed the trial for “weeks if not months.” He criticized the case made by House Democrats as “flawed,” saying that instead of calling additional witnesses and compelling them to testify through subpoenas, the House waited nearly a month to send its articles to the Senate.

Over 200 People Have Died from Coronavirus but 40,000 Americans died because of guns every year


Can we declare a quarantine on guns? BTW I have hunted, fished, and owned a FEW guns for years.

How many people die from gun-related injuries in the U.S. each year?

Suicides accounted for six-in-ten U.S. gun deaths in 2017
In 2017, the most recent year for which complete data is available, 39,773 people died from gun-related injuries in the U.S., according to the CDC. This figure includes gun murders and gun suicides, along with three other, less common types of gun-related deaths tracked by the CDC: those that were unintentional, involved law enforcement or whose circumstances could not be determined. It excludes deaths in which gunshot injuries played a contributing, but not principal, role. (CDC fatality statistics are based on information contained in death certificates.)
