About Me

Philadelphia Eagles fan

Journal Archives

I watched documentary on PBS show American Experience about the 1918 Spanish Flu. PBS is

allowing it to be viewed for free for now. It's a warning to us now. The headlines back then were exactly the same. Initially the virus would appear and disappear in the Spring of 1918. By October with the movement of people around the country for WWI, there were 100,000's of deaths a month. It wasn't until the virus had spread to most of the population did it slow down. But that virus was especially deadly to otherwise healthy males 20-29. I remember speaking to my grandfather and grandmother who both were from large families of 9-11 kids and they both lost siblings to the virus. In Philadelphia people just dropped dead on the sidewalk. We better heed the lesson history provides.

Fox has already started to lay the foundation for Barr and Dunham to try and indict high level

Obama staff and FBI agents. Biden, Rice, Comey, McCabe and Yates, to name a few, better be prepared for an October surprise we all know that is coming. The Fox sycophants started to rev up the smear campaign with talk about Susan Rice emails and Obama misdeeds. It’s all playing out before our eyes the effort to change the history of Russian election interference starting with asking the court to dismiss charges against Flynn. Next Barr and Dunham. Will attempt to charge Biden,Rice, Comey, McCabe and Yates to name a few to change the subject away from the virus.

I am so sick of these small states having so much influence over my life. Sorry to any DUers in Iowa

Great post. You are correct, we the people of America are the enemy, not the virus. The virus is

in Trump’s pee brain just a means to make money, extort, manipulate, and control we the people. What a Ratf’er he is.

Imagine for a moment this wasn't a virus but rather a meteorite big enough to wipeout all

life in the United States and impact is 6 months from today. We know what Trump and the Republicans would be doing to stop it, nothing. It’s up to the States to stop it and, oh, by the way, you can’t use the military, NASA, or any other Federal assets to stop it. Trump and his republican buddies would be selling tickets out of town and saving their own asses while Fox and RW media convince his trolls it’s all a hoax. In the meantime we all die.

Fox and RW media has sucked the humanity out of America to such a point that we are months long into

a pandemic that soon exceed the number of Americans killed in Vietnam yet there is not one single person of substance and influence in government or business with the courage to step up and do something to stop this madness. Murdoch or McConnell could change the direction of this country in a day. Who among the Republicans has uttered a single syllable against a deadly pandemic that spreads unabated while literally nothing is being done on a national level to coordinate an effective defense to a virus that threatens to continue across America leaving death and economic destruction in its path. This is surreal. When will someone have their “McCarthy” moment and break this death cult that is led by Trump. Fox and RW media? Literally nothing is being done right now, save the Governors, and every day that passes puts us further and further behind this crisis.

I agree, Trump just may well usher in an era of progressive change that rivals the likes of

FDR’s administration. I cannot envision 4 more years of this. Trump has caused so much pain and anguish in so many peoples lives. My 4 kids and wife think I am crazy because I was outraged at Bush’s 8 years and yelled and screamed at the tv. Back then I made my kids watch Kieth Olberman’s Special Comments which were joyous. Then for 8 years I didn’t have to worry about politics because of Obama. And we all though that when Hillary was elected we would be sitting pretty especially with SCOTUS instead look at where we are at. The Bush presidency was a cake walk compared to this guy. Now my kids, who are all adults now, call me out because I said all the time nothing could be worse than Bush. At least Bush went quietly and I think realized he made some huge mistakes. Little did I know that there could be a worse president than Bush. Moreover, we must not forget that both Bush and Trump were immensely successful In passing their RW agendas. Bush pretty much got almost everything he wanted to accomplish passed through Congress and so has Trump. Horrific policies and consequences for America but both have been wildly successful at destroying America.

If so then no mercy given. Get rid of filibuster and jam progressive legislation down

the throats of Republicans. Then appoint a truth and reconciliation commission to deal with disinformation. Go after Fox’s broadcast license for their complicity in the virus and destruction of our society. Prosecute Trump and family. No more tax exempt status for religious organizations who involve themselves in politics. Break-up Facebook, Google and others. Transform our society so that regular Americans understand the good government can do. Most of all, impeach Kavenaugh and other Federal judges who weren’t qualified. We need term limits. Appoint Warren to head a commission for the overhaul of our government to address voting rights, term limits etc. Reverse all Trump’s executive orders, rejoin Paris Climate, Iran deal and TPP, if possible. The list is endless but if Dems can sweep all 3 branches in Nov. we can transform America for the next generation. Trump maybe the best thing that ever happened to Dems. I hope Joe is up to the task because we cannot go back to the Obama days. I love Obama, he did a great job in the face of Republican obstructionists, but we need real progressive change. So many good Dems like AOC, Mayor Pete must be part of the administration to transform
America. So many priorities, repeal tax cuts and raise taxes on rich, climate change etc. etc. But it all hinges on winning in Nov.

I hate to differ but We are failing and dying. He has gotten EVERYTHING he wants

while we die, rollover on stimulus, get quack Federal judges kicked down our teeth, lose all regulation etc. it’s we Democratic that are FAILING AND DYING. Let that sink in. Trump is kicking our teeth in and there seems to be nothing we can do about it until Nov. and Joe ain’t lookin or sounding so hot these days. We need VIGOR. I am so so sick of losing. Stamp LOSER on my forehead because this idiot is beating us to death. Let’s face it folks, we are on the ropes and hangin by a finger nail.

Absolutely fantastic observations. I listened to Cuomo's remarks.

Just like Gen. Mathis’s resignation letter, bumble-fuck Trump will probably use Cuomo’s comments in tweets to show what a great job he is doing by tweeting “look at Gov. Cuomo thanking me profusely “. I know this sounds ridiculous but I think Biden at some point should call out Trump. I mean get in his face nose to nose and call him the coward he is. And why aren’t Dems calling for Trump to resign? He won’t but why aren’t they calling for his resignation? That’s why I love AOC and other Dems who fight back. Literally the best attacks on Trump and Republicans come from Never Trumpers. Schmidt, Rick Wilson, George Conway etc. Nicole Wallace is great and I couldn’t stand her during the Bush years. Joy Reid pushes back hard and Maddow and Laurence are terrific but I want more elected officials to stand up and scream “Where are the fricking millions of tests you promised”, askTrump “wouldn’t the country be better off if you resign”. My Lord Rs criticized Obama for wearing a tan suit, denied his citizenship, his patriotism, his education etc. I am so tired of being a doormat.
