Just heard on the nightly "news" Barr's FBI claims Chicago gangs out to shoot police

And film it for fun apparently

Sorry I’m not buying it it just strikes me as propaganda especially considering the source and the timing.

I hung up on a friend and Trump supporter today

Friend calls (much less close friend due to politics) calls today and asks how how I am then how a mutual friend’s recovering son recovering from Covid is.

Knowing he’s a Trump supporter I ask why he wants to know since Covid is a hoax. He says he believes in Covid and wears a mask and gloves. I ask why if Trump says it is a hoax. He says Trump wears a mask. I said not all the time and that his supporters don’t and ask him about Herman Cain dying from Covid. He said he should have worn a mask.

The conversation drifts to the witch doctor/demons lady and I ask him how he can believe someone who lacks credibility. He says there are a lot of doctors giving out conflicting information about Covid. I tell him there aren’t.

Then I mention 170,000 people have died and he starts to talk about pre-existing conditions. I say that is bullshit and that’s Republicans’ just trying to blame the victims for their own illness or demise and that ultimately these people are dying of Covid pre-existing conditions or not.

Then back to the actual numbers. With 170,000 dead I asked him what he thinks. He said “that’s not a lot of people.” I then said “I have to go you’re too fucking stupid.”

Pomp(eo)ASS always reminds me of an overinflated balloon.

He didn’t change my thoughts tonight.

Anybody got a stick pin?

Dejoy just said he isn't reinstalling dismantled machines.

Trump’s repeatedly said the Postal Service can’t handle mail in ballots and yet he’s reduced capacity.

Illinois has had 13 mail sorting machines removed. The sortation capability lost is approximately 1/2 million pieces of mail every hour; 4 million pieces per 8 hour shift and 8 million fewer pieces a day over two shifts.

Dejoy: Late trips dropped from 3500 to 600 a day

Yeah ... without mail on them.

What’s the point of on-time trips if the trips are empty?

The missing mail on those trips = missing revenue = the demise of the organization.

Obama basically said Trump's balls never dropped

“... I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some reverence for the democracy that had been placed in his care.

But he never did. For close to four years now, he's shown no interest in putting in the work; no interest in finding common ground; no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends; no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.

Donald Trump hasn't grown into the job because he can't. ..”

Heart vs. Hate

That’s the election in a nutshell.

We’ve got heart.

Why is the Republican controlled Senate releasing damning Russia evidence


They’ve sat on everything else so why this and why now?

It seems like an effort to undermine the DNC. The timing couldn’t be more suspect. And, as damning as the report might be they already excused Trump.

"We'll hear from Bernie Sanders who represents the left wing of the Democratic Party" ...

Savannah Guthrie just now.

I get so tired of their BS.
