Robert O. Paxton who wrote the book on fascism would disagree with your broad characterization of fascism.. See his 2016 interview with Amy Goodman in Democracy Now. More recently in a Newsweek article, he said: "Trump's incitement of the invasion of the Capitol on January 6, 2020 removes my objection to the fascist label. His open encouragement of civic violence to overturn an election crosses a red line. The label now seems not just acceptable but necessary."

Please don't conflate the overt fascism of the Trump administration with the defense of democracy of the Biden administration.

Wow, you are making some strong unsupported allegations when you say that the current [Biden?] government is the most corrupt in US history and "running for that title in human history". Have you not paid attention to the Trump presidency? The Ronald Reagan presidency? The Nixon presidency? or going further back, how about Warren Harding or Andrew Jackson?

Exaggeration to make a point makes the reader doubt the writer. I disagree with your premise to destroy the current government. On Big Pharma you have a point.

An April 2021 New York Times article, Kati Kariko Helped Shield the World From the Coronavirus, recognizes her achievements. From the article:

"Now Katalin Kariko, 66, known to colleagues as Kati, has emerged as one of the heroes of Covid-19 vaccine development. Her work, with her close collaborator, Dr. Drew Weissman of the University of Pennsylvania, laid the foundation for the stunningly successful vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna."

After reading so many psychologists "diagnoses" of Trump including those of Mary Trump, I needed to share their findings. It seems like a taboo topic for many in the media to question a president's mental state. He should never have been elected. If I have influenced just one person to vote against Trump, well the time was worth it.

Thank you for sharing your long personal struggle for transgender rights. The American public is largely poorly informed on the issues that confront you daily.

I would like to see Bernie Sanders properly vetted in the primary process and not when he is running against Trump in the general election. Hillary Clinton would not go there because she needed the Bernie votes...some 10 percent of which went to Trump anyway. Likewise, the current slate of Democratic nominees have treated Bernie and his supporters with kid gloves. Hopefully, Bloomberg will not fear the Bernie Bros and lay out to the public what a campaign against Trump would look like.

She is clear on Trump's crimes. Now we need the rest of the story to be brought out with clarity.
