So, your President tweets a ban on buying Goodyear tires, an American company founded

in Ohio over 100 years ago that employs thousands of your people. Your President did this because he was pissed that they wouldn't let employees wear his political hats to work.

Has it dawned on you yet that your President puts himself above lives, jobs and your wellbeing? Has it dawned on you yet that your President doesn't have the sense he was born with?

Has it dawned on you yet that you don't know from one day to the next what your President is going to do or what your life will be like next week or next month because he is unstable and has made your country unstable?

Are you sure that your President won't turn on you like he's turned on countless other people because you don't serve his purpose or stroke his ego?

If you had a choice between feeding your kids or supporting this human wrecking ball, you'd choose him?

Before you make that choice, don't listen to me...talk to some of the guys who have had a steady job at Goodyear, or somebody who is trying to put their life or their body back together after a bout with Covid-19, or a Vet who can't get his meds.

In short, get your head out of your ass and use it for a change.

I feel a little cry coming on and there's a lump in my throat. This has been such

a shitty six months and a very horrid 3 1/2 years. I see a light at the end of the tunnel, finally!

How do people feel about Val Demmings? She could turn Florida in our favor.

No question in my mind: any presidential candidate from now on must undergo a battery of psyc. tests

before they can be put on the ballot. They can figure out how to establish an impartial panel to administer these test but this must be done. Right now we are being held hostage by a complete nutcase. It is only by the grace of some almighty being that we are not at war and by saying that I may have spoken too soon.

Memo to Doland Trump: Stop. Turn around. Go back and start again. This time, let the experts

handle the virus and tell Melania to start packing the china.

This should be the nail in Trump's "Open the schools" coffin...

The NYT reported yesterday the Barron's school is considering on line learning.

Question for the psych experts here: Given all the terrible things that Mary Trump

says about Donald Trump's early life, mainly a complete lack of parental love and nurturing, could he have become a different (better) person with counseling or was he a lost cause from the get-go?

So here's the basic problem with opening schools:

we fund our local schools through property taxes. The tax levy, which would reflect pre-Covid 19 conditions, has already been made. States and local governments cannot spend money they do not have...unlike the federal government. So we simply do not have the money to make the accommodations we need to make in time for the schools to open in the fall. All the bullying in the world is not going to change that.

Little bugs become big bugs when the kids come home from school.

Anyone who has had the slightest contact with children knows this. The kid gets a sniffle and Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa get nailed. No so bad when it is a cold or a stomach bug or even the flu for which there is a vaccine, but with Covid-19, the possibilities are horrifying.

I have only one guess as to why Trump is doing this: families with kids in PUBLIC SCHOOLS, the elderly and folks in other risk categories are FUNGIBLE. This is one more step in Steve Miller's master plan fed to and implemented by a useful idiot with no soul.

Just thinking of the other victims of this virus...

I am lucky that I can visit with my 7 year old granddaughter and my son but I can't get too close to them and I certainly can't hug them. That depresses me and makes me very sad because, at my age, I don't have any time to waste. BUT, I am one hell of a lot better off than the hundreds of thousands of seniors who have been prisoners in nursing homes and senior living facilities and sometimes in their own homes who have been cut off from enjoying the physical presence of their families and friends. They sit and wait for the leadership (questionable) of this country to get its act together

It has also saddens me to watch my little granddaughter try to keep her chin up when she hasn't been able to see her friends in almost 4 months and has struggled with learning from a tablet rather than from a real life teacher in a classroom. There has been no leadership from the White House or from that harridan who supposedly runs the Department of Education to help find a safe path back to school for these kids.

So we've got these seniors quietly waiting and trying to hold on until they can embrace their children again and these children desperate to get their lives back.

And the Super Spreader in Chief is in South Dakota tonight lobbying to get his bust chiseled on Mt. Rushmore.
