so how is THIS the best way to benefit our health care workers??

:blink:

 

Seems only you and those with TDS is having a problem with this tribute to healthcare workers.  On NBC4, EVERYBODY was happy, news anchors smiled, healthcare workers clapped, cheered, gave appreciation as the planes flew over.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed President Trump’s new blueprint to ramp up coronavirus testing, saying that it lacked details about how states should implement the plan.
 
"It was pathetic," he said.

The states are on their own, but many are forming coalitions and working together and are not afraid to do what's best for their constituents.

 Despite what trump's federal government may say today, which will probably be contradicted tomorrow.😟

Inside Donald Trump and Jared Kushner’s Two Months of Magical Thinking

Obsessed with impeachment and their enemies and worried about the stock market,
the president and his son-in-law scapegoated HHS Secretary Alex Azar,
 
and treated the coronavirus as mostly a political problem as it moved through the country.

The Stories Dan Crenshaw Tells Himself

The pathos of Trump’s most effective defender.

"In a new book out this month, a Republican member of Congress offers one of the most brutal and surgical eviscerations of President Trump’s leadership style that has been put to print.

 

“The problem with today’s society is that it is swelling with the wrong role models,” he writes. “Abandoning traditional heroes for new and exciting villains who represent self-indulgence, loud-mouthed commentary, angry fist-shaking activism, or insulting spitfire politics.”

This is, he says, infecting our entire society, which “has grown out of control often at the expense of logic, decency, and virtue.” We now “mock virtue without considering how its abandonment accelerates our moral decay” and “don a mantle of fragility, of anger, of childishness, and are utterly shameless in doing so.”

“A culture characterized by self-pity, indulgence, outrage, and resentment is a culture that falls apart,” he argues. ..........

 

.......“conservatives can hold two ideas in their head at the same time.” The two ideas Crenshaw alludes to are (1) that Trump has character flaws but (2) his administration is doing a good job.

This is a theory that might have some merit if both halves of the formulation were true.

They are not.

But what’s really striking is that in practice, Crenshaw can’t even bring himself to hold to both parts of the false pairing. That’s because it is no more possible for Crenshaw or any other non-Romney elected Republican to speak honestly about Trump’s character flaws than it would’ve been for members of the Soprano clan to speak the truth about Tony. .........

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) said in her state, it will be considered a “voluntary quit”
if an employee refuses to return to work once businesses reopen,
 
thereby losing access to unemployment benefits.
 
A similar situation will soon play out in Texas.
======================================
 
 
This is what the reopenings are really about.
 
Allowing states to get out of the mandated social safety net
 
and forcing workers to hold up the economy even if it kills them.

Most of the people who work on the line in these plants are brown.  In other words, not necessarily Trump voters and therefor expendable.

NEW w/ @StacyCowley
:
The Trump administration is about to drop a new rule rolling back Obama-era payday loan restrictions.
 
But according to a whistleblower memo we obtained,
 
political appointees at the CFPB rigged the research underlying it.............
 
The new rule, abolishing the core of the old rule, is being pushed out this week.
 
Why now, amid corona? In part to run out the clock.
 
So if Ds win congress this fall, they can't just undo the new rule with a majority vote
under what's called the Congressional Review Act.

Uh,,,,  illegal immigrants can't vote (well legally anyway).   Some of these plants were the ones ICE raided because the companies were knowingly hiring illegal immigrants and exploiting them.

Anyhow this latest stunt by Trump will backfire because the Union will not comply unless a company takes steps to ensure the safely of the workers (and I support the Union 100% in this regard).      Safety steps can be taken to reopen these plants but their output will have to be reduced,  resulting in higher prices (which is how it should be).   If Trump doesn't like that he could do what Reagan did with air traffic controllers;   have military personal operate the plants.   I highly doubt Trump will go that far,,,, but with Trump,,  no one can predict what crazy asinine thing he might do next when he doesn't get his way. 

PS:  American may just have to eat less pork, and meat overall,  which would be another side benefit of this crisis.   But Donny loves that double bacon burger!!!

S en. Tammy Duckworth rips Trump for bringing West Point cadets back to campus for his speech.
 
"Trump’s reckless decision to gather 1,000 Cadets at West Point...puts our future military leaders at increased risk—all to stroke his own ego."

Ok, I agree with most of what you say here, except for the first sentence.  Nowhere do I see that the “Brown” people are “illegal immigrants”.  While some might be, your assumption that brown people equates with “illegal immigrant” is false, as most Latinos in the country are either U.S. citizens or here legally.  No matte what you say, This shows the underlying racism in your immigration stance.  “illegal immigrants” = Brown people.

Trump threatening to sue his campaign manager over his polls slipping is my favorite story of the month. Millennium, maybe.

Stable genius: “At one point, he said he would not lose to Mr. Biden, insisted the data was wrong and blamed the campaign manager for the fact that he is down in the polls...Trump even made a threat to sue Mr. Parscale.”

As first reported by CNN, Trump, angry at the world, yelled at [campaign manager Brad] Parscale and threatened to sue him. "I love you, too," Parscale replied.

 It doesn't matter if it's the Coronavirus or the economy or his own failure with the polls--

trump always has to blame somebody else for his problems, lack of ability and in- action.

 It's sad that a man his age has never learned to take responsibility for his own behavior.

He cannot even take responsibility for his own golf scores.  He cheats.

Unfortunately a great many Americans see his abandonment of responsibility and his cheating (elections included) as being acceptable because it is all in the name of the zero sum game of Winning.

Half of America and the rest of the world sees nothing admirable in this.  But Trump has no desire to win them over.  He is at war with everyone.

 Go back and read the news;   Plants have been raided by ICE because these meat processing companies were knowingly hiring illegal immigrant.  It is common knowledge going all the way back to G.W.  Bush when the owner of Tyson foods called him asking him not to crack down on his plants. 

Here is a link on these raids that occured last year:

I re-watched Goldfinger the other day for the first time in years. I had forgotten how much Auric Goldfinger has in common with Trump. They both cheat at golf, they both have an obsession with ostentatious displays of wealth, and they're both undermined by a blonde with a porn name.

As fat as Gert Frobe was it would be a challenge for Donald Trump to be sucked out of that window on the private jet.  Could try it though!

I do agree TRUMP is at war with everyone    Something apparently many on here may like, when MADONNA first & only time she met TRUMP-(at some huge party around the time of her ultimate peak 1990/991) she says she immediately didn't like him & found him egotistical

Back when he was with IVANA TRUMP

I am all too familiar with that and have to say that I have no faith in the American electorate then or now.   Anyone that voted for Donald Trump is 2016 is truly braindead.
