How Many Americans are Republicans Willing to Let Die In Order to Win Elections?

Thom plus logo The Republican war on voting rolls on. The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the Republican-controlled US Supreme Court have both, over the loud objection of their own members, ruled that physical, in-person elections must happen in Wisconsin today.

The city with the largest black population in Wisconsin, Milwaukee, normally has 180 polling places open, but today there are only five because of a lack of poll workers. In white rural areas, however, polling places are largely open and well-staffed. The Republican Party has decided this is a good thing for them, a sentiment expressed by both the president and other high profile Republicans.

Meanwhile, we now find, according to the New York Times, three different investment vehicles inside the Trump family have invested heavily in the French company that makes hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug that Trump has been relentlessly pushing to treat COVID-19.

We are now seeing, for the first time in the history of our country, what it's like when a wannabe mob boss and lifelong grifter is elevated to the office of President of the United States and an entire political party has decided to throw in with him. This is exactly what Alexander Hamilton warned us about and is a true danger to our democracy.

In Colorado we can vote by mail. It has been more than 20 years since I last set foot in a polling station.

Episode #2: Tiny Tin's Tinny News strikes again!

Now there is a compilation of useless information, more commonly known as a pile of crap. So, how's your portfolio doing in Trump's "really, really great economy?" Can you hear me now?

When will they ever learn?

Your reference is the National Review, yellow journalism at its finest. And David Harsanyi is another extreme pro-spinmeister of right-wing "think" tanks, an infamous partisan hack who usually gets the big stories wrong, typically by 180 degrees.

Instead, try out some objective truth, if you can handle it:

Tinhorn must be fresh out of the swamp (you can smell it). He still can't tell a liar from a truthteller. Probably never will. Life is too short.

Deepspace you are so hard on Tinhat. I would trust his recommendation for a Pharmaceutical drug just as much as I would trust Trumps.

Haha ...if you wake up in the hospital, and he said it was 10 am, look out the window to make sure it's not pm.

Please, folks (you know who you are), no personal attacks.

What New Hell Will Trump Rain Down on America Next?

Thom plus logo Trump campaigned on nostalgia for the past, with a slogan calling to make America great "again."

And, indeed, he has re-created many of the most notable moments in past American history.

He's brought back the pandemic of 1918, and the widespread death associated with it.
