Prescient

This catastrophe belongs to Trump. He is buying it with the thousands of dead his dismantling of the global pandemic infrastructure made possible.

No way he wrote this

This was authored by Stephen Miller Iíd bet. But Iím sure the pus bag loved it and gleefully signed his name to it.

This is the norm there

Colombia is as close to a pure oligarchy as you can find anywhere. If you get sick and have money the medical care is excellent. If you donít have money well...

I lived there almost 50 years ago and this was normal then. There was 0 safety net. Orphans roaming the streets whose parents had made the oldest leave the family when the newest child was born. Homeless and skilled in theft and begging.

Utterly dirty because there was nowhere to bathe. The older ones taking care of the younger onesóforming into feral family units. Some of those boys and girls ultimately joining FARC and, after I left, became the cartels.

Colombia is why Iím an unreserved liberal social democrat. This is what the world that Grover Norquist and Newt and the Koch brothers want to create. If you are born into the right family life is very, very good indeed. If you are one of the campesinos the best you can do is serve your masters and hope that they are kind and justóbut have no expectations at all.

And if you are below the campesinos then you exist in one of the vast shanty towns and live and breed like cattle without running water or electricity and human waste mixed with animal waste runs down the unpaved paths in torrents when it rains.

Colombia can be so beautiful and so awful. In the time of pandemic there will be little mercy to spare for the peasants.

He must have meant Gallipoli

Where Churchill forced 10ís of thousands of British soldiers into a Turkish meat grinder. When it was over they still had not taken the peninsula and 73,485 were dead.

Trump will be able to beat that body count handily before this is over.

Steve Bannon is an idiot who is trying to regain his relevance.

This is very significant

I was incensed by Bloombergís candidacy. I didnít want to see Bloomberg buying the presidency. I also saw his past policies while mayor of NYC as tending towards patriarchal tyrannyóthe stern parent who knows whatís best for the benighted citizenry.

But Iím all for this. I was hopeful when he said that regardless of how his presidential campaign came out he was going to use his substantial resources to do anything he could do to beat Trump. Iíve got to admit that the man has put his money where his mouth is.

Yay, Michael!!!!!

This is proper usage

A good Democrat is what a member of the Democratic Party is called. You donít call them ďgood DemocraticsĒ.

Throwing stones...glass houses...

Iím not a film editor but it seems that it would be pretty easy to create a video montage of Trumpís rambling incoherencies...that would fire this accusation back at Trump.

Please, will someone knock this hanging softball out of the park????

Changing to Biden

Love, love, love Elizabeth Warren. Iíve read two of her books. Her plans are comprehensive, well designed, and pragmatic.

But it is clear that it is time to coalesce behind the candidate that can take the battle to Trump.

There is now some real Joementum!
