    I was so inspired and impressed with Theresa Greenfield in her debate last night. She is truly worthy of election. Ernst on the other hand looked pathetic and hollow. No answers as she was called out time and again.

    Donald’s day just keeps getting worse…

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Former campaign manager for Donald Trump, Brad Parscale, who was replaced by the President less than four months before the 2020 election, was reportedly armed with a gun and threatening to harm himself at his Fort Lauderdale home on Sunday afternoon.

    Police responded to a home in the upscale Seven Isles neighborhood around 4 p.m. in reference to a man barricaded inside a house. When officers arrived on the scene, they made contact with the woman, the man’s wife, who had called 911. She told police that her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the house and was threatening to kill himself.

        Mr. Biden has worked with advisers to create nonprofits and academic centers while holding a paid professorship at the University of Pennsylvania. His campaign said in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Biden had worked to “generate ideas on how we can help rebuild the American middle class, strengthen global leadership and end cancer as we know it.”

        Mr. Biden has also given dozens of paid speeches, including to universities and business leaders, with fees as high as $234,820. And in 2017, he and his wife signed a three-book deal with Flatiron Books, which was reported to be worth $8 million. After the announcement, they purchased a six-bedroom vacation house in Rehoboth Beach, Del., for $2.7 million.

      “Freedom of speech” has nothing whatsoever to do with this site, which is a privately-owned, for-profit business, which Matt owns and controls. He has every right to permit or prohibit whatever he wants on property he owns. Big-bucks Republican media owners have been manipulating what their media outlets can and can’t say, according to their views, since the invention of newspapers, radio, television, and now the internet.

    Is this really the time to spending $25 million to build new sports stuff at Mason City Schools?

      Yes, at almost zero percent interest rates, it’s a good time to invest in almost anything. That’s why the stock market is so high.

      But that 25 million could be spent on far better things than a sports complex.

        If Trump had his way, yes on the voters. Especially in blue states. He hasn’t figured out a way to make the virus only affect his opposition.
