    If I see the awful long lines of cars lining up at the "food-banks' hand -outs. I wonder what is going on.

    You can't tell me that all these people in shiny mostly "new" looking cars are hungry and asking for food for 9 days or more standing in line for hours burning plenty of dollars of fuel.

    Also I'm surprised that they did not ask for "information" related to income and "tax returns" as well "savings" or "rent or own as well the size of their families. I can accept hand outs to the "really poor" but not put boxes full of stuff in their cars without checking if they are indeed "poor". My feeling is that it shows an "wrong" picture.

    Comments?

    As people know Cuomo is doing everything as it should to stop the virus from spreading, but got now railroaded by the Supreme Court because they did not approve of his proposed restrictions to have max. 50 people at the same time attending "church".

    Thanks to Mc Connell who got the religious bitch elected into the Supreme Court as well we may get an"religious" President, who likely keeps his mouth shut.

    I'm more and more convinced now that Mrs Bader was "murdered" just in time to have the "religious bitch" appointed.

    She could have been kept alive for at least another 3 weeks with certain equipment; why was that not investigated?.

    Indeed she was "ill" so it must have been very easy to kill her; slip something into her medicines etc. Foul play for sure.

    Yes these elections are going to have big consequences also in the future; more people will now die because of this.

    Dock, great, at least you understand and accept what is wrong here. The point I made in the past is that in this country people are being manipulated already at school that the Constitution as it is, is "fantastic" and they should "obey" it all the way.

    The mistake in actual teaching, should be that the teachers themselves should be taught that is is only an "base" law, but does not cover everything. Daily life requires lots of "laws" which are not covered by the Constitution, which should actually be done by "proper" Amendments/additions. Since only a few Amendments were written in 300 years and some Amendments are also again outdated like the horrible written "gun"and "impeachment" one, then you can't rely on "case law" only. Also if the "people" here refuse to make "laws" applicable to Presidents (and the higher functions) and define in it what his/her limits are, then you are asking for an "dictatorship". Like I said it is the "awful" corrupted legal system here which prevents proper updates, because as usual "money" is involved. So if this vicious circle is not "broken" then our laws stay as convoluted and will not be adapted to the times. All the "zillion" lawyers here are the "obstructors" ; if the laws would be properly done, then they would be out of work.

    I don't want to be negative, but I fear that even Biden is not capable (or is "blocked") to do something to "fix" it such way that no one like Trump ever can become President again.

    Thus my prediction is that even in 2022 and 2024 we keep running into the same shit as now, because 45% of the population wants the Trump types, because they never had any "proper "education", because the teachers are neither proper educated either related to "governing".

    I guess the people here forget that what Pompeo is doing is an"game" of the US "religious right" who wants to form the middle east to their way of thinking. Biden has likely no clue what is going on there, because he's super religious as well.

    Anyway "stirring in the "middle east "pot" of "religion" is dangerous as hell; we should know by now who are the "players" there, of which the US has no idea what they are up to. Certainly I would not trust the Saudi's neither Israel; especially their present leaders. Don't forget they had Khashocki killed (via an Trump/Kussner "call")

    Schmidt, yes an correct opinion. Thus as you said and I agree; the path forward is not an easy one, especially if we leave all our laws as they are. If Biden does not make "tax returns" mandatory by law; then for sure we get Trump or another crook back into the W.H., I guess you want that? Also do something about "super" PAC's and other "money" pushers. Just look at how an crooked bunch of lawyers and "lobbyists" prevail with pushing "nonsense" which is costing the "tax payers" hoards of money. Something is drastically wrong with our laws and you know it.

    So either an new President "DOES" something about that, or we keep moving around in the same horrible circles. That will be the end of this country and can join our S.American "banana republics" who will lay out their welcome mat.

    No Schmidt, as I've said a million times; you can't maintain laws written in 1800 or before forever and don't adapt those to the times and don't take into acount the influx of changed human nature as well technologically/cultural developments in an society. The word is "adaption" to the times. Like you said, because of the willfully injected complications by our lawyers, it is difficult to adapt the Constitution, because they like it that way it is to make "money" of it.

    It should be an"living" document which should be "updated" all the time as they do in other countries. We are now facing all the shit, because this "island" is too arrogant to fix this so that it works also in the future. "Case laws" as our fantastic lawyers use as an "fix", does not work; because no "case" is identical.

    Only the US has partially copied the British outdated crap and wants to stick with it. Sure other British colonies used some of it, but also have problems updating it like in Africa, India, Pakistan and others.

    Anyway it looks like you are satisfied with these worn out shoes; sorry, but at a certain moment it will become an noose around this country's neck. There is plenty of evidence that certainly due to corruption by a zillion lawyers this system is collapsing as we speak. Just keep the corruption going as well dump plenty of money into it by the Super PAC's , lobbyists etc. that will be just fine as you said. Yes, I wish this country lots of success, if it continues on this path. You can't run an country on just "thinking" is that an President is "honest" and has "integrity". Just ask all the corrupt "money" pushers here.

    It is not an Biden; it is the whole "system" which is already corrupted to the bone, which will continue as any "banana republic" ; but yeah as you say, just let it run its course; success assured.

    The problem as I've said so many times is the structure of governing here. What is missing is the real "oversight" on Presidents and "departments". The weak thing is, right now that the "oversight" leaders can be "bought" or changed into "loyal" people.

    If you would have an solid oversight unit which can't be "bought" or "manipulated", then things may work, provided they get also the power (via Congress) to "fire" Presidents. Right now no one has that right. So an President has himself the "power" to "refuse to comply and nothing can be done because there is nothing "above" him to set him straight or fire him.

    Again something to fix in the Constitution.

    Pompeo's "dealings" in the middle east is starting to "smell" awfully; the public is not at all informed what he's doing there, let alone who he meets and what "promises" he's making He met with Nethanyaho and visited the occupied area's, but also met the leaders of Saudia Arabia and others in the region. It seems that there is an deal "cooked" up, which provides likely "back pocket" money for Trump and Kussner and Trump associates. Especially the "weapons deals" are lucrative for these "crooks" .

    I just wonder if Biden (also an staunch Catholic) is aware that he will be faced with all these "crooked" deals and may not be too happy with it, because he will likely keep on supporting Israel because of "religion". Bring the barf bucket!

    Right now we've got an dangerous "religious" bunch of idiots involved, such as Pompeo, Kussner, Barr and even Pelosi, may be even the Supreme Court "religious freaks" as well. If religion is involved then you can't trust anyone and it will only create even more "chaos". Religion has always been an curse on this planet from day one.

    I guess no one wants to read the truth about this country. I warned many times about it. But as usual they continue in their old ways. It should be clear by now that an society which purely runs on "money" and an old outdated Constitution with very few updates and amendments and hoards of lawyers who "invent' things, does not correct the wrong things in our laws, which do not work in 2020. We need an "drastic review" of our "election norms" as well design an operating manual for presidents and high level people in the government. Take the "money" out of "elections is an must. This prevents Super PAC's and rich idiots from running the show. Of course a lot of other things need fixing, but let them do first, make "tax returns "mandatory" for any candidate in the government, including the President showing at least 10 years "returns".

    Let's hope Biden does "something" about "free speech" in the "media". There should be"limits" to that as other civil countries do. Media should be giving un-partial "news/information" but should refrain from playing uncalled for "politics" as a sideline. The "truth" factor should be "checked" all the time. Like FOX News; their license should have been revoked a long time ago, because such creates the "cult" we have now. Then the question arises how can we get rid of this without bloodshed. "Prevention" always works better than "eradication".
