This sickens me

Watching the replay of the arrest last night of the CNN crew being arrested....

W T F ?!?!

I will bet you anything that if the reporter had been white, this wouldnt have happened.

Im embarrased to be a native Minnesotan. Im speechless.

Secretary of State

I've been thinking a lot about this lately. Biden needs to choose the next Secretary of State very carefully. That person will need to mend a LOT of fences. That person should be well known and highly respected by most of the other world's leaders.

Now, I know this is just a pipe dream, and I highly doubt he would do it, but could you imagine if that person was Barack Obama??

There is absolutely no precedent for a former POTUS to hold such a high office. In fact, the ONLY former president to hold any public office after his term was John Quincy Adams serving as a US representative. But we are living in uncharted territory here.

One can only dream....

***edited for my historical inaccuracies

So who would you rather have?

We really do not know who Joe will pick as his running mate, but here's something for discussion.

Lets say he has a choice between-

1) Kamala Harris
2) Amy Klobuchar

Here's the kicker....the one that is not chosen as VP will be the Attorney General.

My question is how would you like to see this shake out and why?

I'm torn...both would make excellent VPs and both would make excellent AGs....I personally feel that Sen. Harris would relentlessly go after the orange one, his family and all his minions. But so would Sen. Klobuchar.

Franchise owner of MANY of Wendy's, Taco Bells, and Pizza Huts...

Has donated $400,000 plus to tRumps reelection campaign.

Guess I wont ever be eating at these places again!

Just got back from Sam's Club in Des Moines

Maybe 10% of the shoppers were wearing masks and very few were keeping their distance. I got out as fast as I could.

And the governor wants to open Iowa back up....

DES MOINES, Iowa — An unreleased report from the White House puts Des Moines on the map as one of the top ten hotbeds for COVID-19 in the country.

NBC News reportedly obtained undisclosed data the White House is using to track rates of infection of the coronavirus.

The report issued May 7 shows COVID-19 cases increasing by 1,467 from the previous seven days in Des Moines. That is a 94.3% increase. That ranks Des Moines eighth out of ten cities nationwide in increased rate of cases, according to the data.

According to the data reported by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, the ten top areas recorded surges of 72.4 percent or greater over a seven-day period compared to the previous week. They include Nashville, Tennessee; Des Moines, Iowa; Amarillo, Texas; and — atop the list, with a 650 percent increase — Central City, Kentucky.

Polk County experienced a 107.3 percent increase in new COVID-19 cases (970 cases) in the seven-day time frame, according to the White House data. That also ranks Polk County eighth out of all counties in the United States where the virus is spreading fastest.

Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie says the Iowa Department of Public Health is only sharing COVID-19 data on a county-by-county basis, meaning the City of Des Moines is receiving information about Polk County as a whole. Cownie says it would be helpful if the data was more specific so they could identify hotspots in or around the city.

“It’d be really helpful if we could get data that was related to even zip codes. I know that for HIPAA and other reasons, maybe it’s not appropriate to release exact addresses and names. I understand that, but if we get our arms around where the outbreaks are taking place, and then start tracking those, it would be really helpful to all of us,” said Cownie.

Cownie is hopeful Gov. Kim Reynolds will extend restrictions in response to the current data that shows a spike in cases across Polk County. The mayor also said that all levels of government should be working together and collaborating in a strategy to reopen various areas of the state.

“Any reopening … has to be very strategic. We have to incrementally open it up after we see that flattening over an extended period of time. Two weeks is what our health care people have been telling us. You have to make sure it’s not just a lull, but a definite downturn and a flattening. And then we have to responsibly and incrementally think about how we begin to open things back up,” said Cownie.

The city has already taken measures to break up large groups in an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus. Cownie has extended the freeze on public event permits until July 1. That means no city streets can be used for public events. That includes the Downtown Farmers’ Market and other festivals

And today, 539 more cases and 19 more deaths....

Ok..WH is going to urge us all to wear masks...

But how in the hell are we going to do this when hospitals, clinics, other caregivers cant even get them???
All this is going to do is tie up the little that are out there and make it even harder for those that really need them to acquire supplies.

Tom Brady?????

Having a little fun

Hillary was being honest

(Reposting here..got my first hand-slap..lol)

When she said that no one in the senate liked Bernie. Thats why im not surprised in the least to see almost all of the former candidates come out in support of Joe. Just waiting for Elizabeth to follow suit
