“In an absolute political wipeout of a press conference Thursday, Donald Trump argued that journalist Bob Woodward should have “immediately” warned the American people about how dangerous the coronavirus was, and also admitted that China was more honest about the virus than he was.
Asked why he didn’t tell the public the virus was airborne, Trump responded: “If Bob Woodward thought what I said was bad, then he should have immediately, right after I said it, gone out to the authorities so they can prepare and let them know.” –Excerpt from Daily Kos by Kerry Eleveld
The latest thing to send me into a fit of temper is Trump’s order to Russell Vought, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, to cease the government’s racial sensitivity training. Trump calls such training “un-American propaganda”. That’s right, folks … it is un-American to try to teach people not to discriminate, to try to remove the systemic racism that exists within our government and law enforcement community. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. 🤬
That our Health and Human Services plans to spend $250 million of taxpayer money on a Public Relations firm to con people into feeling better about a pandemic killing people every day rather than take meaningful steps to save lives by fighting the virus in a responsible manner prescribed by health experts. I for one can remember hearing Trump say in the early days that he “had a hunch” the numbers were inflated.
It’s like putting candy coating on a poison. How are we supposed to feel better about so many Americans dying? By comparing our response to those of other countries? Hong Kong makes testing free and available to everyone. We are about to help Americans feel good about the state of either an inept or purposeful and deadly non-response. And by the way, will the content not be free political advertisement? Footed by us.

Financial disclosures of Dejoy, recently appointed Post Office General, (whose wife is the new ambassador to Canada) and huge Trump contributor, owns millions of dollars in retained stocks and stock options in a USPS contractor, XPO Logistics. After assuming his role as Postmaster General, DeJoy also bought a stock option worth up to $100,000 in Amazon, a competitor and top USPS customer.
Some have hypothesized that should TGrump lose the Nov. election he may punish the American public. Hope not.
The very nice absentee ballot application with a postpaid envelope with my name and voting history classification (“above average”) arrived with an envelope it wouldn’t fit in without folding. Is there a rule that discounts folded applications?
For the very first time in years, when driving through Cheshire, Ohio, I see that all the big chimneys and spires of the coal processing plant are blackened partway down them. I wonder if that’s because of a recent deregulation?
As the Harper’s Magazine for September reports, “Online murder-for-hire advertisements seek to convey professionalism yet tend not to provide references up front…”
P.S. This was at the end of the Findings paragraph: “Psychopaths recommended harsher punishmengts for homicides, whether accidental or motivated by profit, but exhibit relative low concern about killing in general.”
They say you’re not paranoid if your ideation is true. I’m wondering what the president’s younger brother died of, and what was the race of the man the secret service shot. And if what he had in his hand was a camera when he knelt.
