About Me

Counselor, economist and public servant.

Here's hoping that in 2021 things get better and keep getting better.

I'm posting this because ever since 2008, I have wished that the next year be better than the year before.

Oh, I know this is premature. It ain't New Year's yet. Sure.

But you know, we've been in the shit for SO LONG. Let's hope Trump drags what is left of the old Republican party into oblivion with him, and we see some sane people who are willing to debate, compromise and move us forward as the founders intended.

Biden has a really good platform. If he and Harris are able to accomplish half of it, we'll all be much better off, as will all other life on this planet.

Only possible problem is we have a lot of shitheads out there who are ignorant, stupid, mean and heavily armed.

So, when next you lift a glass of anything to your lips, do it in the hope that better times are coming, and with the intent to do all you can to help that happen.

Postmaster general says postal service can't return mail-sorting machines

Source: The Hill

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mail-sorting machines dismantled earlier this year would not be put back together, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The postmaster general stated that the old machines were stripped for parts to improve or repair other sorting machines.

This fits the definition of treason in the US Constitution, because by doing this, Trump and DeJoy are levying war against one or more states.

False Rumors That Activists Set Wildfires Exasperate Officials

Source: New York Times

Officials dealing with catastrophic fires on the West Coast have had to counter social media rumors that the blazes were set by antifascist activists, publicly pleading that people verify information before sharing it.

Despite their efforts, misinformation about the origin of the fires which have killed at least 15 people and consumed millions of acres continues to spread on Facebook and Twitter.

Several law enforcement agencies in Oregon said they had been flooded with inquiries about rumors that activists were responsible. On Thursday, several journalists reporting on fires near the city of Molalla, Ore., said they had been confronted by a group of armed people who were worried about unverified reports of arsonists in the area.

The rumors appear to have started on Wednesday night, after the Portland Police Bureau warned people on Twitter about the risk of fire during demonstrations. But there is no evidence that activists have deliberately set fires.

So, starting these rumors make America great again?

I guess my question is why isn't Trump doing all he can to send aid to the West Coast to take care of these fires?

Why is Trump doing nothing about the pandemic?

Why is Trump doing everything he can to cast doubt on the results of the upcoming election?

I think Trump is a traitor.

Trump bars 'propaganda' training sessions on race in latest overture to his base

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Friday night banned federal agencies from conducting racial sensitivity training related to "white privilege" and "critical race theory" that his administration says amounts to "divisive, anti-American propaganda," the latest overture to his political base two months before the presidential election.

Citing "press reports," Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, decried the "millions of taxpayer dollars" spent on such programs "across the Executive Branch" in a two-page memo.

Vought directed federal agencies to identify contracts and agency spending related to training programs that suggest the US "is an inherently racist or evil country" or "that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil." He urged agencies to seek out legal courses of action "to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions."

So, there you have it. Yet more proof Trump is a disgusting racist. As if we needed more.
