    To my friends in MPLS that had their businesses destroyed this summer by the BLM – Tens of millions of dollars were donated to their cause. The BLM is now starting to dole out some money to their chapters – OH! but the leaders took the most and only 10 chapters qualify for dollars – Seems like the Democratic party PAC gets most of it for destroying your life and businesses – Still glad you voted democrat ?????

    George W. Bush was Hitler. Then John McCain became Hitler when he won the nomination. Then Mitt Romney inherited the title in 2012. Now leftists yearn for the days of those men because Trump is Hitler. Whoever comes next will be super-Hitler on steroids.

    More misleading reporting from CBS. There are 547 people -STATEWIDE- in the hospital in South Dakota w COVID. That’s less than 20% of those hospitalized. Nearly 40% of our beds are empty.

            The CDC has NEVER recommended lock downs or shelter in place orders and they do recommend children are Physically IN school for face to face learning (it’s the safest place for children).

          The mortality rate is not the point. The health care professionals and our medical care facilities are the problem at this point. The professionals are being stretched to a breaking point, the facilities are starting to become overrun and they are running out of supplies. Meanwhile, Trump sits in the WH doing nothing but sending out tweets about how fraudulent our elections are.

          About 2 percent of diagnosed coronavirus cases are lethal, compared with 0.1 percent of diagnosed flu cases.

          That is the fact right there that you cannot understand. Your math is atrocious or maybe you intentionally over-inflated flu deaths to play along with tRump’s hoax bullhockey.

            In Winnebago county, there is a 3% fatality rate of confirmed covid cases. It keeps going up. Regardless, we are closing in on 300,000 dead. One every 30 seconds. Both stats are rising. Keep on denying it is happening or it isn’t serious enough to warrant action. Maybe it will get to someone you care about and you will change your mind.

      Our elderly in nursing homes are the most at risk and are dependant upon their caregivers, the very caregivers who have been bringing the virus into the nursing homes while the elderly themselves cannot leave their buildings and cannot have visitors. If that’s not a good reason to protect them first I don’t know what is.

      Maybe if all people would wear masks and social distance we wouldn’t have to rely on vaccines to replace personal responsibility.

If there’s any justice, you’ll wind up in a nursing home soon, and there won’t be anybody decent left to take care of you.

    Witnesses signed sworn affidavits, under penalty of perjury, bravely stepped up to the mic and testified in this public forum. In an organized and compelling manner, they laid it all out on the line for Pennsylvania legislators. After watching even three or four of the dozens of witnesses, one couldn’t help but be convinced that Democrat massive election fraud did take place, throughout the state of Pennsylvania, and most likely, throughout the United States.

        I always thought that a signed document would stand up in court. If words and signed documents aren’t good enough, what is real evidence and how do you show/present it?

          Generally an affidavit is not admissible for the simple reason that the opposing party has no way to cross examine a piece of paper. The affiant usually must testify personally.

      There was an oversight committee hearing listening to people who believe there was voter fraud in the Presidential election, and the people testifying are like the public in Parks and Rec.
      * One person was furious that a voter wore a BLM facemask (with rhinestones) as they voted.
      * Another person said Democrat poll watchers “looked at me”.
      * Another person said in his experience as an internet radio host, he saw that the voting machines were connected to a router. And now he needs proof that the votes are valid (not that they were fraudulent) or he will not accept the results.
      * One guy testified that they stopped counting at night and when they restarted in the morning it was too quiet.
      * A nurse testified that she believes Covid-19 is fake. Only a cough or sneeze can spread Covid-19, but having a mask below your nose doesn’t spread it.
      * A woman who was wearing her mask incorrectly days she was harassed. She keeps saying ADA with no other explanation.
      * A man testified it was hot in the counting room. The thermometer he carried said 85 degrees.
      * A guy testified he saw signs at a rally. Also he thinks Obama’s reign of destruction was caused by dominion voting machines.
      * Sen. Colbeck spoke about his impressive technical credentials, and said he is a techie, nerdy guy. Then says he saw a wireless signal on his phone at TCF center called AV_Connect, and obviously AV stands for absentee votes. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out it’s absentee votes.” !!! (AV connect is a standard abbreviation for Audio-Video, so that was obviously labeled Audio-Video Connection.)

      There’s more!
      * Woman says many voters only chose Biden as President and no other offices, therefore it’s fraud and electors should elect Trump.
      * A woman said: an Asian man brought ballots in to be counted. (That’s it. Obviously fraud)
      * A lot of ballots were closed with packing tape. Workers had pens.
      * Someone said ballots arrived to be counted after the election deadline (which doesn’t exist). Then he started yelling.
      * ‘Terri’ saw a video at someone’s house that poll workers were told to be mean to her. She thinks maybe on YouTube.
      * Someone said the ballots were not crinkly enough to be real.
      This is what we’re dealing with, folks.

      Who cares. The thing about tax liabilities is they don’t go away, they are ALWAYS paid. So if the owner of the mall isn’t paying his property tax, there is an individual who has paid the taxes by purchasing the liability at a tax sale. The city has gotten their money PLUS fees regardless.

That is, unless you don’t like getting 18% interest on your money.

      That’s not what censorship is. Censorship is being stopped from saying what you want, not somebody else being made to use their private, for-profit business to help you say it. Republicans are just fine with talk radio and far-right tv stations and newspapers, but because they don’t really understand tech very well, it drives them crazy. They claim to understand the law, but this isn’t what the law says.

    The COVID restrictions some of these governors impose on religious entities are way too limiting and encroach upon the liberties granted to us by the constitution. The Supreme Court needs to take a look at our Constitution and do the right thing. Whatever happened to separation of church and state?

    Student loans are a giant scam designed to let universities charge more and more and more while delivering less and less and less. They are super spreaders of woke communism, and it’s time to flatten the curve.

    The recount of the two counties in Wisconsin that tRump wanted are over. tRump paid $3MIL to have Biden’s lead expand by 87 votes. Joe should send a thank you note to tRump for finding more lost votes for Joe.

    Love This Quote from Fox News regarding Trump’s tweet that president elect Joe Biden must prove he received his vote legally in order for Trump to allow him inti the White House:

    “Trump’s tweet came after Biden crossed the 80 million-vote threshold with ballots still being counted, giving the former vice president a lead of more than 6 million votes. Fox News and other media outlets have projected that Biden has won the presidency. There is no requirement for Biden to “prove” his votes were legally obtained for him to take office.”
