It's a frightening thought that Trump thinks he is entitled to be president for life, despite the

will of the people, but according to the latest poll he is slightly more popular than Joe Biden. FFS, I thought we were over the Trump nightmare, but that creature is still there, an ever present threat that could destroy our nation, destroy our democracy, and destroy everything that decent people want for America and our place in the world. He is still poisoning fellow Americans with BS conspiracy theories and never a single fact. He is still asking states to overturn the election result. When are Democratic lawmakers going to destroy that POS?

Motives of GOP lawmakers to urge vax-hesitancy? Worsening pandemic & economy & blame on Biden?

What do you think? Who really benefits from more people being infected, more people dying. more chaos, more Republican triggers like mask/vax mandates, and more damage to economy? Only one group of people - Republican lawmakers? Are they letting folks die to win in 22 and 24?

Woman's obituary blames unvaccinated for her COVID-19 death: 'The cost was her life'

It’s a startling beginning of an obituary announcing the passing of Candace Cay Ayers from complications of severe COVID-19.

“She was preceded in death by more than 4,531,799 others infected with covid-19. She was vaccinated but was infected by others who chose not to be. The cost was her life,” it reads.

The Springfield, Illinois, mother was 66 and received her second shot of the Moderna vaccine in March, said Marc Ayers, her son.

But the family believes she caught the breakthrough infection in July after visiting an unvaccinated friend in Mississippi. Her condition deteriorated quickly and she died on Sept. 3, three weeks after being placed on a ventilator.

2,282 Covid deaths in 24 hours, overwhelmingly unvaccinated. Why isn't this the top news story?

Scoreboard needed showing vaccinated and unvaccinated deaths - daily web, news, press conference

The message needs to be put out there, loud and clear that vaccinations save lives and anti-vax kills. Just saying.

402 people die from avoidable Covid in one day in pro-life Texas.

Donald Trump's touching 9/11 tribute.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-to-provide-commentary-on-boxing-match-on-9-11/ar-AAOehYH?ocid=msedgntp

On the day other ex-presidents visit memorial sites to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 2001 terrorist attacks, former President Trump will be providing commentary on a boxing match between former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort.

Donald Trump Jr. will join his father during the Triller Fight Club evening matchup in Hollywood, Florida. The Trumps' "unfiltered boxing commentary" and match will be available on Pay-Per-View and FITE, according to a press release.

9/11: 3000 Americans dead. GOP: "Let's start a war." CV-19: 666,000 dead: "No we won't vax or mask."

How do you explain this double standard?

The messaging on masks and vaccines has been weak to say the least.

I assumed that we would see a spend in the hundreds of millions to convince some of those who believe masks and vaccinations don't work or are part of a conspiracy, that they have been misinformed. I struggle to see any real effort to change hearts and minds.

I am pissed that a family member has died of Covid, and about a thousand a day are dying, and the real-world economy is being further damaged, and that may not have happened if fearmongering, bare-faced lies, anti-science, anti-anything that isn't Trumpian wasn't allowed to fester.

We can blame the right. We can blame Fox and other media on the right. We can blame the crazies. We can say, "it's their fault." That doesn't address the problem. The problem is misinformation. If we (the Democratic Party) don't have a strategy to tackle misinformation, and not only about Covid, but about every single thing. if we don't yell at least as loud as the right, we risk losing everything. We risk Trump, or another fascist winning power in 2024.

"Screw them," isn't an answer. I'd appreciate your views and suggestions on what Democrats need to be doing.
