My understanding is that Roger Simon is a right wing alarmist. To me, he sounds like the 2020 version of Nixon and Agnew’s “silent majority,” hoping that the polls are wrong and the Trump supporters will turn out en masse.
2020 is very different than the Obama 2012 election. We are so polarized that people are not willing to put themselves out there with flags, signs and bumper stickers (other than the flag waving Trump die hards). And lets’ face it, Biden doesn’t have the charisma and ability to inspire that Obama had.
As others in this thread have said, it’s important to stay calm, not overreact to the right wing wackos or the mainstream media that gets overly dramatic on both sides in the name of ratings and advertising dollars, and do what we can to make sure sanity prevails and we get the current occupant of the White House out of there in January.
As the great philosopher Cam Newton said at a press conference:
“Do not let what is out of your control interfere with all the things you can control. Control what you can control. Don’t lose sleep worrying about things that you don’t have control over because, at the end of the day, you still won’t have any control over them.”
Trump’s campaign manager is a felon.
His deputy campaign manager is a felon.
His national security advisor is a felon.
His foreign policy advisor is a felon.
His personal lawyer is a felon.
His long time advisor is a felon.

This article really hits home with me. Trump is a symptom of problems that have been accumulating for a long time. What I refer to as “mindless Republicans” have been leading the country down this path since Reagan was president. It’s so sad…what we really are now vs. what we could be.

Gotta love technology.

According to an article in the Washington Post this morning, putting the emperor’s name on the checks could slow their delivery by a few days, senior IRS officials said. What’s a little suffering among the masses in order to give the Donald his due.
“It will be the first time a president’s name appears on an IRS disbursement, whether a routine refund or one of the handful of checks the government has issued to taxpayers in recent decades either to stimulate a down economy or share the dividends of a strong one. Treasury officials disputed that the checks would be delayed.”
Treasury officials know the Donald’s management style, and that they’ll be fired if they tell the truth.
..or the pockets of his business associates. He’s also interesting in diverting supplies from the states of his “enemies” (i.e. states that didn’t vote for him) to states where his people reside. There is no end to the depths of his humanity.
Everything is about HIM, and getting the political credit for anything that might get him votes.
Maybe he ran out of things to say…..nah!
Sounds like a great program.
