    Guy, it’s a waste of time to reply. As you have pointed out earlier today, resorting to whataboutism is dishonest and meant to distract. Why give it attention?

    “Donald Trump is destroying the United States’ standing in the world — and the dictators couldn’t be happier”

    “Almost a year into the Trump administration, there is a growing body of nonpartisan (such as Freedom House) and bipartisan work examining the damage that President Trump is doing to democratic institutions here and abroad.Conservative Evan McMullin’s Stand Up Ideas teamed up with Protect Democracy, a group founded by former Obama administration officials and now including conservatives, to produce a comprehensive report addressing the nature and scope of the problem.”

    Why should Schumer (or any of the rest of them) have any trust that compromises will be honored? Too many broken promises from both Trump and the Republican leadership.

    McConnell (R-Ky.) said he would consider allowing a floor debate on immigration in mid- to late February if leaders do not strike an agreement before then.

    “Three moderate Republican U.S. senators on Monday, emerging from a bipartisan meeting aimed at trying to end the government shutdown, said there could enough support if Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell made a firmer commitment to move legislation that would address so-called Dreamer immigrants.”

    The problem is coming down to a matter of trust—-or the lack of it.

    So, if you haven’t gotten the vaccine, GET IT!! Herd immunity is the only good way to restrain epidemics of this sort.

    He knows it because the report numbers did not match the doctor’s words of praise. Anyone with minimal knowledge of human physiology can see that mismatch.

    “It was easier to believe our own pleasant fictions about the way things work in America before our president made a mockery of them. By lying to us, in a way he has made it impossible for us to lie to ourselves. That may be the only way in which he has been useful.”

    @BritenessRight! We should just cut out all those checks to the people relying on social security, wipe out all government scientific research projects (NSF, NIH, USDA and more), close all national parks and wildlife refuges (who needs them?), close down the FDA and USDA inspection services (drug and other substances don’t need monitoring nor does our food supply), and then we’ll all be happy campers….NOT. This is about the most incredibly obtuse statement I have ever seen on government services.

    Briteness wins the prize!!!
