White House Hijacks CDC Guidelines For School Reopenings - Rachel Maddow - MSNBC

Botched U.S. Reopening May Require A Shutdown Do-Over - Rachel Maddow - MSNBC



Rachel Maddow outlines the reasoning of more than 150 health experts who have signed onto a letter calling for the U.S. to try another shutdown, to do it correctly this time to control the coronavirus as a unified country instead of disparate states prolonging the outbreak. Aired on 7/24/2020.

2. Gee, I wonder...

Is Barron Drumpf going back to school -- as in a real, brick-and-mortar place, eight hours a day, five days a week -- or is he going to be tutored in-house?
Enquiring minds want to know!

So there you have it.

4. Found it! On HuffPo

The article mentions how the private school has already been to the federal trough to lap up tax dollars.

St. Andrew’s has already gotten a handout from taxpayers as part of the federal Payroll Protection Program, enacted to help small businesses pay employees during the pandemic. The loans are forgiven if the funds are used for eligible expenses, such as payroll, utilities and rent.

Despite having an endowment of more than $8 million, according to a 2017 tax filing, St. Andrew’s told CNN that it applied for the funds to “ensure retention of our full faculty and staff ... during this very challenging and uncertain time.”

School officials have refused to reveal how much federal aid was obtained, but some similar private schools in the area have collected millions in PPP funds. Annual tuition at St. Andrew’s for the 2020-2021 school year is $44,590 per student, plus fees.

5. Trump and DeVos do not give a crap if your kids die to advance their agenda.

Your kids, their teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria worker, janitors, administrators, and even elected school board members are all just expendable pawns to Trump, DeVos, and GOP legislators.

They all have some form of bone spurs exemption because you won't find them volunteering to work in the dangerous front lines of CV-19 enemies hiding in amongst the friendlies.

What is the term they use for those that die unnecessarily........ COLLATERAL DAMAGE!
