Looking at MSNBC

Where were all of these questions two years ago?

Chief Justice John Roberts has an approval rating

I cannot be the only one that must take a step back to come to the realization that a sitting judge on the Supreme Court, has an approval rating. Much less, that it is a positive one, to boot.
What the who ha?
This is the same judge that allowed the evisceration of the Voting Rights Act, with his blessing and gleeful approval?
The same over the removal of the right of privacy of a woman and her health issues and most definitely does not believe the 14th amendment applies to any female.
The bigger issue that is a cause for alarm, is the simple notion that our Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, has an approval rating.
Someone smarter than me can please tell me that this is not something that belongs exclusively to a fascist or authoritarian government system.

A legitimate question about research and outcomes.

Going so far out of the way of the normal discourse with the MSM highlighting of those refusing to take the vaccine under the premise of wanting to do their own research, where is the follow up?
Do these obviously unqualified numb nuts need yet more time to question the efficacy of the vaccine?
Why haven't the same MSM, all networks, provide the follow up on the "findings" of these skeptics, that they deemed so worthy of our attention?

A strange observation

To watch a black law enforcement officer being second guessed, over his action of using lethal force, against a very clear and present threat to the security and safety of his assigned post.
Not only the line of inquiry of his course of action but, the sudden revelation of a previous lapse of judgment, not related to this immediate action, is yet again, in my opinion, the double standard that does exist in the credibility of a black person in this country.
I have seen very much questionable use of force of white police officers against black people yet, I have to hear about any previous infraction of that police officer at the same level.
I know about more of the black or brown person that was killed by a police officer, than I do of the police officer that was "just doing his/her job".
Until now.

I can not be the only one.

I am tired.
I am tired of "this is the one that will bring trump down!"
I have heard this for more than four years with net zero results. Even my nine year old grandson agree to this.
Everything is just right around the corner, you wait and see, we got him now....
I am tired, and want much overdue results.

I keep seeing, with greater frequency, why has Joe not fix it, yet Four years of a crap show, at many, many, many, levels, now pushback?
