Two things: 1. The democrats better not let Trump make an executive order for a relief bill, they better "budge" and get it done. Any "fencers" will side with Trump if he has to step in on his "white horse" to get it done. Right now, it has the appearance that the democrats are the ones holding it up, they need to change that quickly.
2. one of my sons 'kids' at school said his parents won't wear masks(and have him scared to wear them) because Trump is putting the virus in them to make people sick. Son told him that's not true, and if his mom or dad made the masks, then Trump didn't touch them so it would be ok. The kid actually cried he was so scared of what his parents were telling him. So idiotic can run on both sides of the political spectrum.
And a 3: repeating what holly gail said: please don't lump all Christians into the same ship - we're not all the same any more than any other group.
If I offended anyone with my comments about Christians, I am truly sorry. I most certainly didn't mean ALL Christians throughout the whole wide world.
I should have made myself more clear. What I should have said was SOME Christians as well as people of other faiths, choose to believe this evil man is their God's messanger, and will support anything and all things he does, because God works in mysterious ways.
There are good people of all faiths as well as bad. Hitler professed to be a Christian.
From now on I will add, in my opinion and only my opinion, to my replies.
I know how it feels to be accused of something, to be looked at with fear and suspicion, to be judged and not trusted because of others misguided assumptions.
I am sorry and I'm sorry that you took my comments personal.
Most probably I have made comments about Christians. They were not meant to offend anyone here. I hate the lumping of all people into one group and I'm need to be more careful myself. If I did offend anyone, I am truly sorry.
About the Democrats and the relief bill. My take is that Trump told McConnell not to make any deals so that he could sweep in the become the hero. Also, if the Democrats did cave in order to get a bill passed, don't you think Trump would then use that against them?
There is an old Science Fiction movie, The Forbidden Planet. An alien is seen carrying around what looks like a cookbook with the title, "How To Serve Man."
Or, was that an episode of Star Trek?
To Serve Man is an episode of the twilight zone.
The parents telling their kid trump is putting virus in masks are not anything but mental and need help. If they are tormenting their son to the point of extreme fear that is child abuse and sounds like CPS should be notified. I wouldn’t bet on them being Democrat’s. Probably extreme libertarian.
Trump held a rally/press conference/peaceful protest/political meeting at his country club in New Jersey last night. This weekend he is supposed to have fund raisers in the Hamptons and then one on the Jersey shore. Doubt if any of them will have social distancing, most of the people wearing masks, or obey New Jersey's "number of people" rules. Here's a link to an article about it:
luanne , I left the baby-killer one out since that seems to be a deal breaker for even the non-foaming-at-the-mouth Trumpers.
I know, nobody loves abortion but I believe it should be legal and up to the child-bearer, not a bunch of sperm donors.
Exactly! Nobody wakes up and says "You know what? I think I'll go out and get pregnant so I can get an abortion, that sounds like fun!" It's done for many reasons, none of them fun reasons. These people are just low IQ idiots. It feels like we have a really tainted gene pool in this country.

I am trying very hard to stop using the "A" word altogether. A woman's right to choose means the same thing and works for me.
Besides, I believe the Far Right are the ones who made this word a hot button issue and I hate to give them anything.
When they are just as outraged about children being homeless and hungry, being sexually assaulted and abused, can not buy books or cloths for school, can not even go to school, no daddy around to help with the bills, maybe then I'll listen to them.
