    Joe Biden ad

    Take a look at this ad putting the responsibility for the coronavirus response squarely on Donald Trump. It runs about 2 1/2 minutes and is well worth your time.

    An excerpt from the closing statement of the above ad:

    “Donald Trump doesn’t understand. We have an economic crisis because we have a public health crisis. And we have a public health crisis because he refused to act,” a narrator says in the nearly three-minute-long spot. “Donald Trump didn’t build a great economy. His failure to lead destroyed one.”

    Like an old Dutch saying: "Presenting mustard after the meal" that is what is going on. If all the previous Presidents had put proper laws in place, also did write an "limit" law into place, describing clearly the "limits" of the job of Presidents and their staff as well re-wrote the Constitution related to how to run an "impeachment" as well an clarification of the "second amendment" that indeed "civilians" can't own guns (with the exemption for having certain jobs) especially not the types of high capacity guns produced now. Our laws need a lot of clean up; the rule of law means nothing here, because our lawyers make sure nothing is written the "black" and "white way"; all of it has become "fussy" and "cloudy" to keep them busy to hoard in the "money".

    If nothing is done about it, we will stay in turmoil and end up like any S.American country where corruption is "king"

    Ad's like above don't change a thing!

    Schmitd, So has Trump just been recklessly ignorant, naive, and unconcerned, Or something else?

    I am pondering that Trump's reaction to COVID-19 has been to let it get worse, ie feed the fire, so to speak. Not necessarily as a conscious effort, but he just feels most comfortable letting COVID-19 get worse because he thrives on conflict, division, chaos, hate, destruction, etc. Trump as no skills related to solving problems, his skills are are centered around creating conflict and benefiting from conflict. The worse things become, the more he thrives from it. His behavior consistently suggests that he really doesn't want things to to get better, his behavior suggests he wants it to get worse. When I heard him comment that toxic house cleaning fluids might be a simple solution, that was so recklessly stupid, its more like pushing people closer to the edge than away from it.

    The prediction of the experts is not "pretty"; thus I wonder what this country will look like at "election" time.

    CHAOS is the word.

    The Republican Party seems to be oblivious to the dangers of COVID 19.

    When Trump gave his acceptance speech outside the White House on Thursday night, roughly 1500 people (most without masks) sat close together on chairs set up on the lawn.

    Image may contain: 3 people, crowd, text that says 'Last night of the Republican convention where stroking Trump's ego was more important than protecting attendees from a deadly pandemic, so no social distancing and very few masks. Coronavirus Likes this. IMPEACH TRUMP'

    Do you actually care? If these people are all Trumpers, then they are protected by an unseen "god" thing, so don't worry, "heaven" is great, they serve the best champagne there is. Impeach Trump, sure that worked fine!! Don't let me laugh!

    The link at the top does not work. Try this one. It is also a little over two minutes....but this one FLOORED ME!!

    The part that floored me comes in right around 1:16 - when he is talking about the American ideal, and whom it belongs to.

    He mentions race and ethnicity...THEN....gender identity THEN sexual orientation!!

    I am FLOORED!! Not only did he not forget to remember us trans...HE FREAKING PUT US FIRST....BEFORE THE LGB'S!!

    I am not used to EVER being put ahead of them...they have ALWAYS been thought of first. For ONCE...we are!!

    It's almost as if he made this as just for me!

    I swear I have not felt this good in a very long time! The last time I felt this good in America...was when Obama became the first President to EVER say the word "transgender" in a SOTU address in 2015. I was floored then, too!! SOMEONE FINALLY NOTICED US!! Someone finally CARED. We freaking FINALLY MATTERED!!

    I want to feel that way again. I want it so badly.

    TG -- Thanks for the new link. Sometimes these links work for a short period of time and then are taken away for whatever reason...perhaps replaced by something better. Biden has been fine tuning his messages listening to what the populace is saying. He wants to be more inclusive, a president for ALL Americans and not just something less than half. That contrast between the two campaigns could not be clearer if one just compared Biden's DNC speech versus Trump's RNC speech. Night and day...Trump's speech wallowed in the darkness. Two nations instead of one nation. Us versus them.

    Trump is now trying to peel away a few Biden supporters with "pardons and props". Pardoning a black woman at the RNC and issuing naturalization certificates to a carefully selected group of immigrants that don't look like the typical Trump voter. They served as props for Trump's campaign with mixed messaging. Some didn't even know they were going to be used as props for the Republican Convention. Does it matter? It had it's intended effect at the moment and that's all that mattered to Trump.
