Trump's anti mask gambit found sympathy among his base. But wait until it impacts parents when the

schools reopen. The opening story on my local news tonight was exactly about that scenario. 3-1/2 years of corruption, incompetence, greed and criminal activity are taking a back seat in the news cycle. Same shit, different day, different distraction...same results...media follows the rabbit. This may not be some distraction that people who follow DU will swallow, but it will damn sure find resonance with a lot of other people. Here is why IMO:

We have a lot of people in this country who are more and more questioning why they may or may not back Trump. Some are blindingly loyal, but not all. I believe that many of them will welcome a means to finally put their misgivings behind them and rally behind him. They couldn't really justify a lot of what has happened, but if they can be convinced to see public policy as an affront to their children's 'freedom"...watch out. I understand that these people were never really reliable, but they were at least "in play."

Sucks that it may take a big uptake in deaths and infections to counteract this crap. I do not want that at all.

Yes, I may need to step back from the ledge tonight...just hated that news lead.

So Trump has set a goal for a vaccine by the end of the year. Is there anything else important

going on towards the end of the year? Let me think. Hmmm. Seems like I may be forgetting something. Oh.....I know. He will come out 90 days before the election and claim the vaccine is 91 days away.

Weird transition, Trump mentioned the enormous amount of deaths and then paused ,went into something

about "someone a long time ago" being at fault. I actually think he had wandered off script, realized he should not have mentioned the enormous death toll and tried to recover. I assume he was trying to blame Obama. Very clumsy.
i can't watch more than about five minutes of his crap, so maybe I am off base. Seemed weird.

My N FL cable tv: 5 channels "One World Together"...Covid info. Fox News outlet...cooking show

Honestly I just stumbled across this tv lineup after dinner. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.

I guess I should be glad it isn't worse.

Please let your mail carrier know they are not alone. Last week I left mine a bottle of hand

sanitizer and a note of appreciation. Told her when that was empty to bring it back and I will refill it. Not only does she do a great job every day but she helps keep an eye on the neighborhood and knows most of the people on our rural route. I am not suggesting that everyone give a gift, just a word of appreciation and a show of solidarity.
The Republican Party has been "all-in" for a while now. They will not be backing down unless something unforeseen happens. We have to support our unions, teachers, healthcare people, and every institution that repubs are trying to dismantle. I realize I am preaching to the choir, just reminding people to at least do what little things we can to support others.
Go Joe!

Just on JAX 4 news, "The Villages," dense FL GOP retiree area, now has golf cart drive thru testing.

Sorry I can't provide link. Just saw it on channel 4 news out of Jacksonville five minutes ago. Glad they are getting tested, as it is an older population, but....wtf? Why not everyone in other locations?
Just curious where these test sites will end up and who makes those decisions.
