  1. Looks like the man can put a few sentences together. Maybe he's on drugs?
  2. What a nut job. Does he actually believe this? William Barr Wildly Compares Coronavirus Safety Measures To Slavery In an absurd claim made on Wednesday, the attorney general compared coronavirus stay-at-home orders to centuries of anti-Black murder and sexual assault. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/bill-barr-wildly-compares-coronavirus-safety-measures-to-slavery_n_5f6383d9c5b6ba9eb6eaf9b9
  3. Remember, both sides do it though. Donald Trump accused of sexual assault by former model Amy Dorris Amy Dorris in her home town in Florida.

  5. ‘Let Me Finish My Question’: Voter Confronts Trump Over Efforts To Undermine Obamacare The moment highlighted Trump’s efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which protects those with preexisting conditions. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/voter-trump-affordable-care-act-preexisting-conditions_n_5f617814c5b6e27db1348d38 Ellesia Blaque, an assistant professor, pressed Trump during an ABC News town hall with voters in Philadelphia. During a tense moment, Blaque detailed her experience with a lifelong disease that costs her thousands of dollars annually in insurance copayments.
  6. Biden proposes $5 trillion in new spending, undaunted by Trump's massive deficits https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/14/politics/biden-tax-spending-plans-trump-deficits/index.html
  7. Yeah, not a very likely story to mistake a human for a deer. I actually hit a deer last year. The thump wasn't as large as you'd expect. I was surprised, but it totaled my car. I wasn't going very fast like 35, but the deer was just suddenly there right in front of me, I saw it pretty clearly in that half a second before the hit. And of course you can get out of your car and look. If he really didn't know then he is kind of affirming he was drunk or high, or somehow mentally compromised.
  8. Wisconsin Supreme Court keeps Green Party off presidential ballot and allows ballots to be mailed on time https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/14/politics/wisconsin-supreme-court-absentee-ballots-green-party/index.html
  9. Didn't you hear? Trump's aides are wheeling him out to California where he will pretend to care about the state. The Trump pivot to the center is here!
  10. ‘It’s Out Of Control’: How QAnon Undermines Legitimate Anti-Trafficking Efforts The child sex trade is a global crisis. Far-right conspiracy theorists are harassing, distracting and intimidating the organizations fighting to end it. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/how-qanon-impedes-legitimate-anti-trafficking-groups_n_5f4eacb9c5b69eb5c03592d1 Polaris, which runs the national human trafficking hotline, warned in July that unsubstantiated claims “can spin out of control and mislead well-meaning people into doing more harm than good.” In August, after the century-old charity Save the Children issued a public statement to distance itself from QAnon’s leeched “Save Our Children” front, the nonprofit World Without Exploitation followed suit, casting QAnon promoters as “grifters with a hero complex.” Days later, KidSafe Foundation denounced them as “parasites” who threaten to “tarnish our reputations and harm our good works.” But QAnon is notorious for launching mob harassment campaigns against its perceived adversaries, and other anti-trafficking groups — having already witnessed or experienced such abuse — have declined to speak out against it. The potential risk of publicly condemning QAnon and provoking its fury versus the harm of letting its conspiracy theories proliferate unchallenged is the subject of discussions playing out inside child welfare organizations across the country. Several employees who spoke to HuffPost declined to comment on the record for fear of triggering a backlash. “We have had conversations internally about [QAnon], and just threading the needle on trying not to anger a very mobilized group,” said a senior employee at another human rights organization headquartered in Washington. It’s exhausting work. It’s traumatic work ... And this just makes it all so much harder. senior staffer at a national anti-trafficking organization “What we’ve seen is that QAnon is a force to be reckoned with,” agreed an engagement professional at an international child welfare agency. “For organizations that do choose to speak out about it, it’s going to require a lot of resources to deal with [the fallout] — especially dealing with trolls.” And when trafficking-related misinformation reaches a level at which it must be condemned or debunked, that can have “a real damaging effect on victims,” said Phil Brewer, a former police officer and the director of intelligence at Stop the Traffik. “If they reach out for help, there may be a real worry that they won’t be believed.” QAnon’s online mob has also inserted anti-trafficking groups and staff into conspiracy theories. “Q” — the anonymous entity at the center of the movement, whom supporters believe to be a top government insider leaking coded intel to the public — once suggested that Polaris engaged in sinister activity with The Clinton Foundation. Since then, Polaris has fielded online accusations of facilitating sex crimes against children. Two anti-trafficking organizations even told HuffPost that they had been contacted by mysterious activist groups, later revealed to be “Save Our Children” organizers, who requested to be put in touch with victims for public speaking events.
  11. You are individualizing it and I'm speaking collectively. We are a stupid country if Trump is richly rewarded for killing 200 k Americans. All those conditions you mention are present in every election and we still manage at times to hold leaders accountable at the ballot box at times. And this is an unusual situation to say the least. You'd have to nuke a country or start a civil war to be a worse President than the current one.
  12. We already failed the morality test and don't deserve to survive. This election is a test of stupidity. If we vote Trump back in we are likely too stupid to survive, a Darwin award winner country.
  13. Concerns about what? That election was April wasn't it? The heart of the health crisis. Also, it's not Democratic defeatism. The official term is Democratic bed-wetting. And there is a lot of that going on here.
  14. $2,933 for ‘Girl’s Night’: Medicaid chief’s consulting expenses revealed Seema Verma, a member of the coronavirus task force, spent more than $3.5 million taxpayer dollars on GOP-aligned consultants, a congressional report found. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/10/seema-verma-medicaid-expenses-411539 Maybe before pushing work requirements on Medicaid, cut down a little on your own use of government money to hire expensive consultants? If the goal is to save government money and not just to randomly punish Americans.
