2. It's particularly terrifying right now, with some hospitals nearing capacity again!

4. Yes, it most definitely is so

The urban facilities that are carrying their own cases and the overflow of rural hospitals as we see less compliance with basic preventative measures in out state areas. A recipe for a real calamity.

5. That's both frightening and mind-boggling, too

That's why I posted segments from The 11th Hour as well. While cases are currently reaching record levels again, Trump is out there lying to his crowds saying just the opposite - aided and abetted by his despicable son and irresponsible Republican governors! - and these morans believe him! They also showed a map of cases in the U.S. compared to our closest neighbor, Canada. They have only a few hot spots while most of this country is still affected. Canadians listened and never turned this into a "political issue."

3. This segment is alarming when you think of all the systems they could hack.

I hope our security groups can beat them to the draw, as Nov. 4th could be disastrous. It's bad enough that they are hitting the hospitals with ransomware.

We are looking more and more like a 3rd World Country with little or no control. Remember when we used to send monitors to 3rd World Countries to insure their elections were valid?

6. That's exactly what it's like - and I have thought of the election monitors so many times

The Carter Center had teams that visited these vulnerable countries to ensure that they had fair elections - and now we desperately need them in this country!

7. It's an act of aggression

Expand these actions in a time of crisis and it is an act of war.

We can thank moscow mitch and all the other rethug enablers for doing NOTHING about this threat. They have had FOUR years to do something and chose to pretend it didn't exist.
