Trump's crowd size in NC:

looks like less than a couple of thousand. I could be wrong. It's not large though.

We aren't far from where he is speaking- it's 76 degrees, partly cloudy. He's at a small, regional airport that has an airstrip big enough for cargo jets- so easy for Air Force One to land. Lots of parking there.

He's right between Greensboro and Winston-Salem- so roughly 550,000 people are in a 20 minute easy drive of the place. It's about an hour and a half from Charlotte.

I would say those numbers aren't great- especially on a night like this that is so pretty, and cool out.

The Republicans here just voted NOT to give teachers a raise or bonus for the year, so it's possible that group is mostly lost.

Trump is campaigning in NC right now

the people behind him are wearing masks- (most of them), but the crowd in front? About 1 in 10. NC is going to have a Covid 19 spike in the next two weeks. First the weekend, and now this mess.

Here's a live link--- he's just doing the usual blah blah blah....so turn the sound down-

Anyone here remember the Guy James Show?

A radio show that was broadcast from Florida?

He used to be on DU- I wonder what happened to him-

Isn't it incredibly sad that anyone would look at the RNC speakers and think:

Oh! I am going to watch every minute of that! I used to LOVE Chachi--- honey, remember when he first dated Joanie???

I don't understand why Dems don't think Ivanka and Melania are gorgeous! If I had that money, I would have plastic surgery also--

These are the leaders we NEED to make our country great!

This is the result of killing public school funding for decades- or was it ever really funded?

The Trump administration is awarding more than $35 million in Justice Department grants

The Trump administration is awarding more than $35 million in Justice Department grants to organizations that provide safe housing for survivors of human trafficking.

OK, why NOW? Could this have anything to do with Maxwell being in jail, and her papers released?

Seriously? The man has never done a decent thing in his life. What in the world could the purpose be for this?

'Gone With the Wind' star Olivia de Havilland dies at 104

Source: EW

"If they can't afford them, they shouldn't have had them."

That ugly knife is cutting both ways now, as upper middle class people start complaining about not having schools open--- so, their days can be free to continue their jobs--etc.

I know how mean that sounds. But, it always sounded cruel to me, as I watched parents go to work in places like Walmart, McDonald's....trying to just keep a roof over their children's heads.

Now, I wonder--- as I watch parents post on FB in real time that public school employees are just "lazy," while "they" are suffering-- if somehow, we can become more empathetic as a country.

It's time for insurance companies- BC/ BS etc to charge higher rates

for folks that refuse to wear a mask.

We are super careful- we wear masks, stay home, use hand sanitizer--- why should smokers pay higher rates, but not anti-maskers?

Another corn snake question

I don't think the Nope Noodle likes living with me. She has bitten me once (not a big deal) when I was changing her water-- or as I like to call it the Cement Pond.

Anyhow---she shed, and her owner told me to wait a few days to feed her.

I went and bought some Disgusting Frozen Rodents.

She has had three small ones now. (yes, I thawed them).

What next? How disgusting is it going to be when she poops?

Surely, Trump's cabinet members are reading his tweets

and seeing the same nutty crap we are?

Are they that scared of Trump that they will not invoke the 25th?

I was looking at the list--- I know Devos and Carson are just there to do his bidding. I get that. But, surely to god, there are a few that think he's just plain nuts, and unable to perform his duties.
