Just so's ya know

Biden's 2016-2018 tax returns are publicly disclosed and available for viewing on his web site. I hope he mentions this fact in the 1st debate. Make this fact go viral please.

My social media are full to overflowing with comments about Trump's taxes.

None of it admiring him for being a tax cheat. Lots of snarly pissed sarcastic stuff. It is the Oct surprise come early. Lots of "lock his fat ass up."

For all those afraid that Trump won't go peacefully if not re-elected,

rest assured he may mouth-off his BS, but he is a coward at heart. On Jan 20, Biden will be sworn in as POTUS. There are more than enough Fed judges, who would be honored to administer the oath of office. But John Roberts will no doubt do the honors. One week earlier, the WH staff will be busy packing the Trump belongings and moving them out. Cleaning the WH residence and moving in the Bidens' stuff in. (Let's hope they count all the silver too!) The Secret Service and the US Marshalls will deftly escort the Trumps to a waiting helicopter. All the bru-ha-ha about Trump not going peacefully is merely Trump getting the MSMedia to talk about himself. If you haven't learned by now that Trump shoots his mouth daily to stir the pot and keep the chaos boiling -- well where have you been for the last 4 years?

I can't watch the news much any more

At least not lately. It's so depressing. I fear that McConnell will push thru some Christian Taliban justice for the USSC. And there's nothing we can do about it, unless Biden gets sworn in, and we expand the SC to 15 justices. I feel like Republicans are poking a stick in my eye, while pissing on my feet, all the while laughing at me.

Citizens United has got to go!

Not much will change until we pass a constitutional amendment to eliminate the dark money from elections. Did you know that Canada doesn't allow corporations to make campaign contributions, because corporations are not people!

Right now it is Wall St and Fossil Fuels that own and operate the Republican party. It's not the MAGAt Trumpsters who scare me. They are all just useful idiots, who respond emotionally to the culture war, and who the 1%ers manage to enrage over guns and Jesus.

Never ceases to amuse me that "Christian" Republicans are ignorant about Jesus' teaching on money

Oh they know the "Render unto Caesar" bit. But how many ever contemplated:

Acts2:44-45 "All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they shared with anyone who was in need."

Matthew 19:21 "Jesus told him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me."

Not that early Christians were communists. But they did live communally.

BTW: It was Judas, who carried the money bag during Jesus ministry. John 12:6 "He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it."

Why Republicans want to abolish social security

During your working life, you pay 6.2% of your income up to a limit $137,000. Your employer also pays a matching 6.2%. It is that matching 6.2% or $8537 possible max that Republicans deeply resent shelling out for your retirement security.

The old canard about SSI being creeping socialism is -- Yeah? Well so what?

We must reform our campaign contributions laws

Canada doesn't allow corporations to make campaign contributions. Neither should we. Or at least limit the amount of dark money that gets contributed.

Every day a new revelation into the depravity of Trump

Have we reached overload yet? There is no bottom to Donald Trump. God only knows what's yet to be revealed. I can only hope that more whistle blowers will come forward as we near election day. Perhaps a few Republicans will realize that he is going down and decide to snitch a secret or two in an effort to get some of his taint off themselves. But that's probably wishful thinking.

Surely we will get an independent criminal investigation under Bidedn's new AG. Surely Kamala Harris will whisper in Biden's ear "investigate his crimes and prosecute his rotten degenerate ass."

I can already make a case for mass murder by negligent depraved indifference manslaughter. Surely there's a good case for treason too. Both of which we can add to bribery, obstruction of justice, abuse of power, tax fraud, insurance fraud, money laundering, sex crimes, perjury, running a criminal enterprise.

Did I leave anything out?

There is no bottom

There is no bottom with Donald Trump. We've all known for years that he is a malignant narcissist, liar, criminal, con-man, and money launderer for the Putin's Russian mob. Now it seems we can add mass murderer to the list.

There is model law called depraved-heart murder, which is sometimes called depraved indifference manslaughter or negligent homicide. It is where someone is indifferent and disregards actions that are harmful and potentially fatal and does nothing to mitigate a bad outcome. Is this not what Trump has done with his denials and indifference to the potential dangers of the Covid pandemic?
