    Before you go off, this does not mean I wil necessarily vote only for Democrats. In fact, I am almost to the point where I’d says the same for the national Democratic Party.

    Assuming I even bother to vote at all — a much more likely possibility given how disgusted I am with the direction this country is going (and has been for decades).

They represent us but they cater more to the donor class. They want to maintain this status quo, we don't.

    I am leaning toward not voting, Biden wish to take advantage of the "anybody but Trump" movement more then representing the people issues. He told his big time donors that nothing will change when he becomes president. Yeah, that is real inspirational for me.

    Yeah, but that’s not really how it works.

    I can protect others. Unless I stay home (which for my job is an impossibility), I depend on others.

    It comports with everything else we've seen. They have always not taken things seriously if the issue appears to be affecting primarily Democrats over Republicans. They've also taken actions that are designed to punish Democrats. Just look at the tax bill that Trump signed. It was explicitly targeted at punishing residents of Democratic states by raising their taxes.

    How come Herman didn’t go see respected Dr. Stella Immanuel and get some hydroxychloroquine or some alien DNA or something?

    If you were looking for evidence that Republicans in Congress have no sympathy for workers facing illness or worse from the coronavirus pandemic, look past the party's proposal to cut unemployment benefits.

    The GOP proposal would make it virtually impossible for a worker to sue his or her place of employment by absolving employers of responsibility for taking any but the most minimal steps to make their workplaces safe.

    It would preempt tough state workplace safety laws (not that there are very many of them).

    And while shutting the courthouse door to workers, it would allow employers to sue workers for demanding safer conditions.

    This is the provision that McConnell has described as his "red line" in negotiations over the next coronavirus relief bill, meaning that he intends to demand that it be incorporated in anything passed on Capitol Hill and sent to President Trump for his signature.

    The provision would be retroactive to last Dec. 1 and remain in effect at least until Oct. 1, 2024.

    Workers have been voting against their own best interest for so long, these politicans are starting to be up front about screwing them knowing they will still be re-elected. If you got willing chumps voting for you, why not screw them to put cash into your pockets.

    I am starting to think our system of democracy is a failed experiment because people are to gullible, trusting and willfully ignorant for it to work properly.

    No wonder Trump wanted to be president, this game is suited for his talent to exploit others for his personal gain.

    because they've been asking for one for years, according to Donnie

    needed or not, it has no place being shoved into a stim package....nor do tax breaks (tho I've not seen who'd get them, maybe some of it is legit)
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    The FBI Building (Hoover Building) is one of the dumbest looking buildings that I have ever seen. It looks like a building built on top of another building.

    Regardless, this isn't the time to be replacing it and it should never be part of any economic relief package…nor should the Kennedy Center have been.

    Yea I don't care what the building looks like. If it is structurally unsound, then it should definitely be moved. But yea it definitely doesn't belong in the economic package.

    PSD: where the moderators consistently cave to crybaby tattletales and it's a lot safer to be openly racist, hateful, and ignorant than to be a little rude to the racist, hateful, and ignorant

    Pretty much captures our most selfish nature.
