Then why did he go to court

to extend the time they had to remain as slaves? They were freed 5 years later because his petition was denied.

How is he going to suspend elections?

The states control those. Do you think the Republicans would allow him to try knowing that on January 20, 2021, at noon, the Speaker of the House would become President? The Secret Service will not follow him nor will the military.

Yes, big difference in security.

We shop at Camp LeJeune. We used to cut through the back gate to go to Topsail Beach without an I.D. Now we have to show our DoD I.D. to enter through the main gate, the only gate we can enter. The MPs' rifles are loaded and one press of a button and the road is blocked.

Lee owned slaves.

He inherited them and was supposed to free them in 5 years. He petitioned the court to extend the time but was denied. He said they were better off then they were in Africa and it prepared them for better things. Historium Robert E Lee and Slavery

Wear a hat and shirt.

Take off the hat and shirt and put on another shirt and a different color mask. If there are 2 of you you can then get 4 packages. I have gone in and bought my one package, gone to my car, and then gone back in. They told me only one package to a customer. I told them I am only buying one. They said I had bought one earlier. I said the sign said one to a customer, period. It did not say one to a customer per day. We are not hoarding but keeping a 2 month supply of everything. Our stores have plenty of toilet paper but are short on paper towels and bleach.

Not Siberia, not with the wildfires and melting permafrost.

Same in Alaska. There is a possibility of viruses frozen in the permafrost that could be deadly if they unfreeze.

Why not a statue of trump.

One with a door where you could go in and go to the bathroom.

My husband was stationed at Fort Meade.

He was a Russian linguist in the Army Security Agency.

What about The Littlest Rebel.

Isn't it nice to have a smiling slave who can dance?

So the health department knows that they should be wearing masks,

but says you don't have to wear one if you don't want to.
