I can solve a lot of the issue by legalizing some drugs because the root of all evil is money.  We can tax the drugs to provide public work jobs and increase benefits to those unable to work.

Right or wrong, he has every right to express him (freedom of speech).  I think this country has lost its dayum mind with pass judgment on people. This why the bible states that do not judge because no one can hold up to the standard we set.  Also, he stated that the company will donate 1 million food banks, so do not throw the baby out with the bathwater.   People need to realize that we can vote Trump out and at worst, he will be around 4.5 more years.

Politics / Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for Covid-19

Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for Covid-19 after months of dismissing the seriousness of the virus
Quote
He also acknowledged the life-threatening risk posed by a virus that he has in the past dismissed as a "little flu." "We know the fatality of the virus for those of a certain age, like me, above 65, as well as for those with comorbidities, diseases, other issues. In those cases the virus could be decisive and lead to death -- everyone knew that."

Bolsonaro had reassured supporters on Monday outside the presidential palace in Brasília that he had taken a test and his lungs were "clean," following media reports that he had a fever. Wearing a mask, he warned people to not get near him. "You can't get very close [to me], OK? Recommendation for everyone," he said.

The Trump of England got it and now the Trump of Brazil got it. When will the real Trump get it. :shrug: :shrug:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged Thursday that he was "wrong" to claim former President Barack Obama didn't leave behind a plan for tackling a pandemic. The Obama administration had in fact prepared a 69-page playbook for pandemic response — which the Trump administration appeared to not follow.


"I was wrong," McConnell said in an interview with Fox News' Bret Baier. "They did leave behind a plan. So, I clearly made a mistake in that regard."

OS, you need to give all your degrees back but you have not learned to think logically. You only hear the side of any argument that supports your belief without thinking about the counterpoints.

Trump’s Budget Cuts to the Social Safety Net Are Greater Than Reagan’s
A new analysis by the liberal-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has charged the Trump administration with plumbing historic depths by proposing to slash health care for low and moderate income people and cut all programs in the social safety net.

While seeking major increases in spending on defense, veterans’ affairs, homeland security, construction of a wall along the southern border with Mexico along with a major tax cut, Trump’s budget would cut $4.3 trillion of domestic discretionary and mandatory spending through 2027 in a bid to wipe out the deficit.

Of those total cuts, 59 percent or $2.5 trillion would be made in programs to assist low and moderate income people, even while those programs account for just 29 percent of non-defense domestic spending.

SAFETY NET' STRANDS THINNER UNDER REAGAN

Regan pushed through a reduction in the national Social Services grant appropriation. As a result, Richmond cut the number of elderly and disabled people receiving help at home with cooking, cleaning and other chores from 350 people to 65.

One elderly woman who lost aid, said Lory Osorio, director of an "adult day care" center, became so distressed after being forced out of her home and sent to a nursing home that she refused to eat and died within a year.

The OP may want to go back and look at stats from the war on poverty. It was working pretty well until Reagan dealt it its final blows.
The great society has been under attack since the 1980s,  I guess he forgot who started the attack:
'Social Safety Net' Less Safe As Cuts Debated

"The poverty-stricken, the disabled, the elderly, all those with true need — can rest assured that the social safety net of programs they depend on are exempt from any cuts," he said.

It turned out that wasn't completely true — the Reagan budget cut food stamps, welfare and Medicaid.

I did not have any issues in Dekalb County. I like the new voting machines because they print a  paper trail that you scan into a sealed container. My problem is I requested an absentee ballot, but I did not get one despite the fact that I emailed requests for some older people who got them. :shrug:  I believe they should have used more mail-in votes until they get the machines ready. Let hope that they are better equipped in November. Maybe the feds need to ensure that each county has enough machines and supplies. :read:

I would like to see the money used for a Defense League similar to what the Jews have. We all know this country runs on $$$$$, so the money can be used to elect people to change the laws as well as provide the best defense in the courtroom for the downtrodden.

I never liked him, when they hyped him over Justin. Justin was better than him at GA. I'm not saying this because I know Justin. I'll let his record speak for itself.
That is UGA football, yet some of us still support dem dogs.
