Pressure. Now they know what it feels like to be on the other end. Clean up your house! no one expects cops to be perfect they are human beings. But the bad cops are really rotting all cops. Hospitals do not put up with a few bad surgeons or people die. Same with the police. Weed out the bad apples...all of them. Don't tolerate any. Surgeons have life and death in their hands. So do cops. If surgeons can't get away with being a bad surgeon then neither should a cop!

Sasse Slams Clearing of Protesters for Trump's Church Photo Opportunity

Source: National Review

Sasse said. “Every public servant in America should be lowering the temperature and that means saying two basic truths over and over: (1) police injustice — like the evil murder of George Floyd — is repugnant and merits peaceful protest aimed at change; (2) riots are abhorrent acts of violence that hurt the innocent.

Trump keeps pushing Republicans. Testing them and their support. Nebraska is as Red State as it gets. That collapsing creaking sound on Trump's base is getting louder by the day.

Just an awful devastating ad using Trump's own words

This is so vicious it's way pass Karma

Large majority of Americans say country lags in testing availability: POLL

Source: ABC News

As more and more states and communities ease restrictions to jumpstart the reopening process, strong majorities believe the country lacks sufficient testing and are also skeptical about returning to pre-pandemic activities, including sending kids back to school, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday finds.

This poll shows clearly that these states rushing to open up or opening up under court order will not bring back the economy. Democrats almost close to 80% are not willing to participate in day to day activities. Even Republicans even though far less but still over 50% not wanting to proceed back to pre-covid19 activities.

Trump Republicans and his supporters are fighting a losing battle. Only IF or when a vaccine is found the world of May 2019 will never come back. After Trump, pain, mental biological spiritual and physical will be the condition for most of the world billions for many months or many years to come. That reality is starting to sink in on me and it's very sobering.

American Travelers Are About to Be Pariahs in This New World

Source: Daily Beast

One thing is sure: Gone are the days of the American abroad, at least for those hoping to summer in Europe this year. The new models on how to reopen European travel do not have room for the American tourist for the foreseeable future.

Trump has managed to turn the United States into one of the sh*thole countries he so crassly called African Countries. Americans can't even visit Europe now because of his imbecile incompetence in managing the corona virus. Worst. President. EVER!

The dark decade ahead

Source: THE WEEK

The churches all closed. Jets flying overhead. Lunatics banging pots and pans. Masked joggers, masked pizza men, masked dogs awaiting testing; everyone in the park wearing masks; no one masked in a crowd of 30 watching the armored van roll over the discarded grass clippings. A woman beaten by a police officer (off duty, of course) for refusing to wear a mask in a warehouse store. A man spits in the face of a clerk. Alcohol sales increasing by 70 percent or more, and legal dope available for curbside pickup. Standoffs, the stockpiling of weapons, protests and counter-protests with assault rifles in state capitols. The hospitals not overwhelmed but empty and staff let go. Yellow murder tape across merry-go-rounds. Children, neighbors objects of medium-level suspicion at best. Technology not a stopgap or a substitute but a condition for a new conception of bare life. Packages on doorsteps, dropped by unseen and poorly remunerated agents of the world's richest man. Children raped on camera. Domestic assault. A hundred thousand defaults piling up in the portfolio of a single regional bank. Suicide. The end of education. The end of employment. Prophets, of course, everywhere.

I have been telling everyone that I can talk to for yrs that a country where the foundation is 70% consumer spending is a foundation as flimsy as straw and hay. This pandemic has set the foundation on fire. And I like this writer hope his analysis is wrong. Wow!
