Come And Pledge With Me, Let's Win

A lot of us have given. Some cannot afford to give any more. That is okay. After the Supreme Court debacle, I am pledging money to Joe Biden, Amy McGrath and Jaime Harrison. Letís keep up the momentum. Letís win this thing. Even if it is a dollar per each of these, will you join me?

Advice On Actions Against A Republican Ex-Love Interest

A guy I talked with online for two months kept it from me he was Republican. I met him on a site that is pretty liberal, so it just never came up. Fast forward to me trying to have a discussion with him, when he said he does not belong on the left or right. I actually said I was trying to have a discussion and was telling him, since you do not get intonation in an electronic note. Things escalated and ended. They ended on a rather bad note - him stating not to write him a nasty reply, and me stating I wished him the best and I hope he finds happiness.

I place an ad on the liberal site, looking for another possible love interest. The guy has a friend go on my ad and start talking about how hypocritical I am, wanting everyone to feel the same way I do. That never happened. I wanted to discuss why they guy felt the way he did. The guy kept posting. I reported him to the site, but knew nothing would probably happen. I feel harassed and stalked.

I wrote to the friend, publicly (only way I can, since I have him blocked privately). I gave the number of the guy's address (not the full address- I have never been there, so I felt this could spook him). I said as a woman, I feel vulnerable. I feel stalked and harassed. I said to please reach out to his friend and make sure he wants it all to continue, since now they are on notice of how I take the posting on my ad. I said the next step is to place a complaint with the cops, whether the friend or another friend tries this.

I know who his ex is and could easily reach out to her. I am sure she could possibly renegotiate the custody terms if some of his actions (not just this, but some other things, as well) were known. I am searching for all legal remedies I can get, because I am not sure the cops will take a complaint seriously.

Do I have any legal remedies with something like this?

Thanks.

Has Florida Run Out Of Certain Types Of Meds?

I was on a Facebook group and someone posted: Hey ladies I could use some prayers for my godmother. She is in the hospital with covid and double pneumonia, and FL has tan (sic) out of meds.

With FL numbers going up, I assume it would be common sense they have run out of some meds.

With numbers going up, this could be worse than we imagined. 😢

What Happens If Joe Wins, But There Are....

A fair number of red governors left? Just like it is not up to Trump to close down states, it is not up to Biden. Are we going to have to cordon off states that do not follow correct protocol? The way the red governors are acting now, I am just not sure they will stop rebelling. Joeís efforts and leadership will be good. I look forward to competency. I can see a certain sect of leaders thumbing their nose. What are your theories on what will happen? This disease is so destructive, this weighed heavily on my mind last night.

My Idea For A Protest During This Time Period

We should all join Twitter. It was reported the White House was livid with the tweet about the lines at the airport. We should start with that and everyone tweet it at the White House/Donald Trump. Every time it is reported someone is turned away because of a lack of tests, or refused being tested, tweet it at the m'fer. Any time something bad is reported, tweet it at all of them. Let them know how angry we are. Let the world know it is not okay. Let everyone know how we are hanging in the wind. How cruise lines dock in Miami with no testing at all. Every major news story or contradiction should be broadcast loudly. Shame them for the shitty job they are doing. Let them know we are mad as hell and not going to take it any more. Donnie two scoops has used Twitter to his advantage, let's use it to ours.

Theories On What Will Happen If We Are Told To Stay Home?

People do not have a lot of money in their bank accounts. If this virus hits us hard, schools and businesses could close down. People would stay at home. A lot of people will not be able to afford rent, or mortgage. The banks cannot afford to take back everything. In theory, what will happen with power, rent/mortgages, water, etc. if folks cannot pay their bills? If everyone is basically in the same boat, will they just let bills float until everyone gets back to work? I do not want three quarters of this country to end up homeless. I am worried about myself, as well as others. Anyone have any ideas what could happen?

Pardoning Scooter and Obstruction

I have yet to hear any of the pundits talk about this but if Trump is really sending a message, that he will pardon anyone who has lied, how is this not obstruction? Can this simple act not be added to all the others and used against him in a court of law? Is this not an act that just proves all the others? I do not get why everyone is not crying obstruction over this twits latest action.

They Are NOT Putting Party Over Country

If they were, they would not be screwing over the party for the 2018 elections. They are simply selfish. They want what they want and will put up with whatever they have to to get it. If they were putting party first, they would not be destroying it! This is a grab and go situation all the way around. That is why so many of the rats are abandoning ship. It is every man for himself and party and country be damned.

Why He Should Not Get The Wall

There should be no wall because of the cost. Sure it is a pittance compared to the budget but they will use it against us. When they get that debt up, they will turn around and say they have to balance the budget and they will go for the security nets! They want a huge deficit so they can go after those 'entitlements'. We cannot help them try to get rid of the things our country treasures the most.

There are many reasons we should not give in about the wall but protection for our most vulnerable is the most important. Do not give them a reason to go after everything that enables people to have some sort of a life.

Could The Government Be Sued For The Muslim Ban?

I was just reading the writing from the Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/fire-and-fury-donald-trump-book-steve-bannon-muslim-ban-anger-us-president-white-house-a8143541.html) about the way the Muslim ban came about. The Independent reports:

"But the new book suggests that it was specifically decided it would be signed on a Friday so that it would cause the most possible disruption at airports. The order was hastily signed in such a way that it even affected people who were flying into the country Ė who were then detained as they arrived, with little clarity on what would happen to them, on one of the most popular days for travelling."

This makes it sound like they purposely wanted people detained at airports and unable to enter the country. If it did happen, in this way, could the people who were detained for days not sue the government for their malicious actions against them?

I thought the whole thing was sloppily done due to no one having a clue as to what they were doing but it would seem, according to Bannon, they knew exactly what they were doing. What horrible people.
