As COVID cases jumped again to a new record,  I had to wonder why Trump is seemingly so desperate to cling to the presidency when he appears to have absolutely no interest in leading the country.  He seems to be doing nothing but firing people who aren't unflinchingly, blindly loyal to him, installing toadies in their place, and trying to cheat and lie his way to remaining in the Oval Office.  And 70 million Americans voted for this egomaniacal imposter.  What the actual eff?  This is really what 70 million Amuricans thinking being presidential looks like? 

Joe Biden, not yet president, is already doing a far better job of being president than Trump is, or really ever has.  The contrast is stunning, and yet it's lost on the folks who voted for America's Biggest Loser.

One thing I heard of a Trump voting family I know personally is like
"We don´t agree with Trump on pretty much anything, especially the child separation thing and health care policy, and he is a horrible person, but he is the only one standing inbetween us and socialism."
Have to take that serious, but it´s hard, afraid of the big black man... :o

And they have no clue what the "Socialism" they are missing actually looks like. They think of Venezuela but would be getting something closer to Sweden, Denmark or Germany (with Sanders, Warren or AOC, not Biden). Which means they would be far better off than they are now. Again, it's tragic.

Mississippi is consistently ranked as having one of the highest ratios of its citizens receiving federal spending vs. taxes. Put bluntly, it's mostly the blue states that are paying for the red states.

But these things are only relevant for the reality based community...
Your comments are quite accurate. Not only does that Republican lawmaker not understand what he's asking for, he doesn't even know what the word actually is... :o

Hilarious. Newsmax calls out Fox(fake)News. The "fake news" house of cards begins to fall. More conspiracy theories to fall with Trump's removal... "BUT HER E-MAILS!!!" Currently, only 3% of Trump voters believe Biden was a legit win. That will hopefully change when Trump goes. I believed the 2016 election results when Trump LOST the popular vote by 3+million. Now he has lost the election AND the popular vote by 6+million and his followers can't accept it. Poor losers, I guess. Maybe they would like a "gold star" from the "snowflakes". Things will hopefully improve as lies are not accepted daily(literally) from The White House and re-enforced by state TV. Baby steps.

Believe you me: Just as people use biblical book references for pro-life, people use just as much in there for war; and so many other references on subjects to control everybody-else’s life. Many many many fail to except that it’s a book about centering your own life, if you truly have Him in your heart. Many many many who think they do, actually truly don’t and missed the whole point; regardless of how much church they attend or how holy or scholarly they are.

I don't know what is going on in your state, but in my state, local police are choosing not to enforce public health mitigation mandates put in place by the ELECTED governor. Law and order? HA! You can't have it both ways. As long as the police do as they please, I have no need for them. After all, I've got my guns in a state with concealed carry. Freedom. 'Murica.

“If Republicans don’t start condemning this stuff, then I think they’re really complicit in it,” Raffensperger told The Post. “It’s time to stand up and be counted. Are you going to stand for righteousness? Are you going to stand for integrity? Or are you going to stand for the wild mob?”

While I think Georgia SOS Brad Raffensperger could have started asking these questions 4+ years ago, I guess better late than never.  Of course, he was happy to support Trump until the death threats were directed at him.

"U.S. net farm income this year will jump 43% to $119.6 billion, the highest inflation-adjusted level since 2013."
"Direct government aid, accounting for 39% of net farm income, rose to a record $46.5 billion from $22.4 billion last year."

So apparently the govt. gave out money to farmers to increase their profits--it's fair to say the entirety of that $24 billion profit increase came from the boost in federal handouts.  Count on thrifty Republicans to give away lots of our tax $$$$ to potential voters in an election year.

Fear not, here is some Republican policy that we should all encourage and get behind. Thanks, Donald.
