Here is what I have real problems with:

Immigrants who came here from countries under autocratic rule. fleeing inhumane and vicious leaders, looking for freedom from corruption and fascism, professing strong beliefs is family values and Christian ideals, and looking for economic opportunity, once getting here seem to favor leaders they are fleeing. There is no way I could vote for a man like Trump who oversaw pulling babies from their parents, placing them in cages in horrible conditions and not caring if they ever found their parents again. Voting for Trump just because your 401K us doubt well or because you were lucky enough to get a good job ...all of which could disappear overnight...just seems so obscene and hypocritical. It's sickening.

I do wish Rachel and other in the media would stop warning the voters about what the Dems

might or should do with the Courts. Saying that out loud might make a few Independents who might vote for Dems change their minds. Let's just move on to getting Biden in the WH and winning back the Senate. The SCOTUS is dead to us until we get the power to change it. Stop talking about it. Talk about getting out the vote.

It is so true. Trump brings out the the very worst in people. He brought out the worst in the GOP.

Now of course, whatever he brings out is already there to begin with Remember that.

Just finished watching Oliver Stone's "Untold History of the United State."

We are living it again. I encourage all to view it. Especially noteworthy is how and why Hitler came into power, US banking, ..actually all of it is a must see. Proves that the history taught in schools is seriously lacking. And, yes, we already had a "socialist President" who saved Capitalism. Oh, the paradoxes. But it is all being repeated now. Biden could be our next FDR and events may require him to be. Smelly Butler, McArthur, JP Morgan, Elenor Roosevelt, ...and more. Just so scary how we are the mirror image of it all right now. (I watched it on Amazon Prime but it is also on YouTube which I refused to use today)

WTF is wrong with people who are anti-maskers?

We demand by law that you shouldn't drink and drive and there are stiff penalties if you are caught doing so. Not drinking and driving is not about the drunk driver so much as it is about protecting those whom the drunk or DUI driver might harm or even kill.

No outrage from drinkers about those penalties and jails are full of those who do get caught and can't pay the fines.

These anti-maskers are becoming more like accessories before the fact of homicidal negligence.

It used to thought that evading armies would take away our freedoms. Now

it's only a mask. What is the world coming to.

BLM needs Bloomberg or the Lincoln Project to help them put out an add

denying it was anyone affiliated with them using the "hot dog" meme they are accused of. They also need to state unequivocally what they stand for and why they exist and to inform voters that everything that gets claimed in their name actually is other forces determined to undermine them and give them a bad name. It should run from now until the election is over.

I hate to see them smeared.

So now is Turkey going to come to the aid of their favorite President?

Just announced some threats to US citizens in the area. Trump needs something to pull uphill numbers. Is a new conflict it? Erdagon loves Trump and Trump loves Erdagon.
