    The GOP is like the drunken tenant who knows they’re being evicted – they’re trashing the place, before they go. Then, in four years, they will blame the Democrats for not having cleaned up their mess, yet.

    • @Tyeler Nowell Real simple Grasshopper, the public in the DemonRat Hellhole cities keep reelecting incompetent Dems who could care less about the public only getting elected. Thus 95% of Blacks vote for Dems every 2 years yet have nothing to show for it except for throwing out the “race card”, claiming they are victims of racism for 400 years, and giving them an entitlement mentality! #WalkAway from the Socialist Democratic Party…

    • Tyeler Nowell | August 4, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      @BIacks For Trump way to perpetuate a stereotype. You should be ashamed.

    • @Tyeler Nowell What makes you think Republicans support a fringe group like the invisible KKK? When was the last time you seen a KKK rally with white gowns & hoods. Last I can remember shown was in the 1960’s. Nobody in my family ever did that crap going back to the 1800’s. Thinking I would be more worried at the Marxists groups your Party supports such as BLM & Antifa!

    • @Tyeler Nowell Why should they be ashamed because Pres Trump lowered the Black unemployment rate to an all time low! Or Pres Trump passed “Criminal Justice Reform”? Maybe setting up “Opportunity Zones” to encourage investments in inner cities? By raising funding for Historical Black Colleges by 14%? Okay, Trump’s EPA sending $100 million for water infrastructure to Flint Michigan? Personally I commend him for being brave enough for escaping the Democratic Plantation the fake Democrats who throw out the “Race Card “. Declare all Blacks victims for 400 years. Encourage an Entitlement Mentality & welfare state so 95% Will vote for them decade after decade and be taken for granted year after year! #WalkAway

    How imbecilic is the USA ?
    40% would rather listen to a pathological liar than medical experts .

    • @Ragne K’Yaeger what claims? U might be more specific. I cited the NY Times? No offense but ur post here seems generic and automated as if u are sending it to everyone u disagree with. Like one of these “hey u ignorant trumpster …” type of posts. Hate trump here by the wyy by of course that is an irrelevant non sequitur.

    • @Ragne K’Yaeger Sir, my post a few minutes ago was the 96th /last entry on this thread. This one here is the 97th on this thread. I just re-read every one of those 96 posts and there are NONE by you to me other than the one u posted where u say “see my other post to you for details”.
      — But u have NO other post to me on this thread. Which seems to support what I said about ur response being an ‘automatic one’ ?

      –Just posting this as an example to other people here to show how one can intelligently discuss on Youtube (what I call debate) without resorting to name-calling which is beneath me . At least generally although if provoked enough, I make exceptions

    • Ragne K'Yaeger | August 5, 2020 at 12:42 PM | Reply

      @Alpha Bruh Let me test something:

      Lets see if you can see that one, since those other posts aren’t shown if I’m not logged in myself.
      Seems like youtube got a problem to say “you can’t posts this” without making the one who post it realise it.
      As you can see in the picture, my posts were send and can be read, but only by me I guess?

      @freebirdpv the way I look at it is we have a few months for the government to figure out the logistics and provide the funding necessary. Perhaps Trump’s administration should be more focused on planning for and improving larger scale mail in voting by working with state governments instead of working against them and trying to discredit it as a whole.That would be the most logical thing to do 🤔. They’re wasting time fighting and sueing states instead of planning ahead for the inevitable.

    • Matt O'Byrne | August 5, 2020 at 2:49 PM | Reply

      @freebirdpv as far as fraud goes we have the largest and best funded military and intelligence agencies in the world. I’m 100% positive we already have technologies in use that can be applied to safeguarding against election fraud. It’s all just a matter of planning and preparing which hasn’t exactly been this administrations strong suite. I just don’t believe there is any reason with all the resources available to the federal government that we can’t get an effective plan in place for mail in voting ahead of the November election. The only thing standing in the way is Trump’s pride and incompetence. He doesn’t want it be easier or safer for people to vote because he knows he’s already losing.

    Decades upon decades of attacks and underfunding our educational systems by Conservatives and the Religious Right
    has brought us to this point in time where Science is talked down and stupid religious mumbo Jumbo is believed .
    Conservatives are being successful in dragging us back into the Dark Ages where religion ruled and Inquisitions abounded .

    • @Liberal in Oklahoma Once again dead on to point. Thinking you were Captain of your debate team. Congrats! But sad to say the DemocRats are beholden to the Teacher’s unions who are dead set against Charter schools to advance Minorities. Why is that??? In Baltimore $16,000 per student is spent on public education. However of their high school graduates only 11-12% were proficient in reading & math. Not good! Republicans have always advocated for school vouchers so more students can attain the superior education system afforded to the well to do…

    • Liberal in Oklahoma | August 5, 2020 at 6:16 AM | Reply

      @freebirdpv Be aware of the pat on the back , they may be holding a knife .
      Republicans have attacked the funding of public schools and championed charter schools because this way they can teach Creationism instead of Science with very little federal Government supervision and drain the public schools of their funds .

    “WINTER IS COMING”! Imagine when the Covid forces people indoors. The great one’s Plan, is to let as many American’s die before January. Less for our military to control when he enacts martial law.

      He doesn’t have the military on his side. Thats why bonespurs is using unidentified individuals to attack people.

    • gina delsasso that’s a scary prospect because it will severely compromise national security, but it’s very likely it will have to ultimately result in another civil war. In my opinion I think Americans will just execute or charge trump with treason sometime in 2021 and spend the next decade or two recovering

    There’s no help coming from the government, your on your own, they are too busy siphoning off money where-ever they can. They know its over.

    • @Snoman 687
      What are the chances of that?

    • Y Barabbas that’s the exact correction required to resolve things. It’s seems easier to just change the person at the top, but it’s the politicians in our communities to be held accountable including sheriffs, judges, district attorneys.

    It’s very telling that Republicans passed the defense spending in days and handed out money to big business in 5 days. We are now waiting 11wks for them to pass the Hero’s act and literally only got $1200 in 4mths.. Now they don’t want to give the people their own tax dollars to help them with a UBI of $2400mth which would stimulate the economy. How is logic not even in their conscious?

    • *It is unreasonable to expect reason from the unreasonable.  One thing ethical people forget, is that when they know the indisputable truth, they believe they will win the debate.  But logic and reason only have power when they are recognized as such.  Trump is the best possible illustration of this.  He continues to claim his handling of the virus is better than any other country, when the opposite is true, the facts are in plain sight, but that does not deter him in the slightest.  The truth will not set you free or buy you a cup of coffee when dealing with one who absolutely refuses to recognize it.*

      @dea cottingham : So you just want republicans to just bend over and accept a democrat plan that cost 3 times more than the republican proposal ? Not going to happen.

    • @Gary Campbell Gary, Democratic Congress. Congress controls the funds and the makes the bills. Congress doesnt have to make a bill at all over any of it. Hate to tell you. Senate only has the power to pass the bills Congress proposes. Unlike the Republicans who are trying to become dictators and think they deserve every power of all 3 branches…. Just wait until the election. When Democrats hold the Senate, Congress, and Presidential power. Dig us out of most of this debt. take crime down. tax corporations harder. Make more allies. Return things to semi normal. This happens EVERY time a Democratic president takes over from the FAILURES— MASS SPENDING of a REPUBLICAN president. Look it up. Easy to follow the FACTS.

    • Gary Campbell | August 4, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      @J J : WOW ! You need to get off the coasts (minus a handful of states) and out of the big city, which is where I am (in a town of 900 people in the rural midwest). Those are the ones who absolutely do NOT want the democrat / liberal alternative we are witnessing right now, AND forthe past 4yrs. With that ? voting Trump is an easy decision to make. What worries people around here is that Biden will be nothing more than a mouthpiece for people like Pelosi, Schumer, Omar, Cortez, Waters, Feinstein, Tlaib, Booker, Schiff, or Nagler. NOBODY wants THAT. We have watched the Russian collusion crap, impeachment nonsense, the Kavanaugh fiasco, riots, looting, burning buildings & damaging property, tearing down status & monuments. The Barr hearing was just another notch in the 4yr despicable democrat resume, and don’t think a lot didn’t notice. SO, when dems lose in Nov, and wonder why ? they will have no one to blame but themselves and CNN & MSNBC.

    • @Gary Campbell Congress controls the budget and proposes bills. FACT. Senate passes bills FACT. REPUBLICAN Presidents SPEND MORE MONEY while in office. FACT. Trump was given foreign help in election FACT. Democrats have asked the Republicans/Senate/President to look into Russia putting bounties on soliders lives. FACT. Republicans have refused to investigate the Russian bounty news. FACT. The POS has refused and still talks with Putin like a good ole boy. FACT. The POS has stated that all mail in voting is fraud or will be for the 2020 election. Then turned around in less than 24 hours and stated except in Florida. That mail in voting is ok and not riddled with fraud. FACT. The Republican party has actively been looking for ways to delay the mail system. Including the same mail system that many people use to get life supporting drugs. FACT. Who has what wrong here? I can show a paper trail to show all those facts. Where is your supporting documents of the FACTS you seem to be trying to give? I also find it funny that you seem to know EXACTLY what news I watch. You named only American stations. Why is that? You obviously dont watch world news or world news stations. Maybe you should give those a try and come back here and let me know what the WORLD is stating. Not just a coup being performed by the South to try to take over the US yet again. Yet again. it failed.

      No, he won’t. He’ll figure out someone to blame.

    • If I am not mistaken he has called the Wuhan Virus the worst pandemic since the “Spanish Flu” over 100 years ago. Thinking that might be acknowledging, also set up a task force & shutting down the economy on it’s advice…

    • freebirdpv yeah he calls it that yet withheld the federal power “for Washington” instead of distributing supplies nationwide. He failed to take the lead so he couldn’t be held accountable. He literally abandoned the citizens of this nation and even stopped doing press briefings when he knew his claim that it would go away(which he has said repeatedly) was completely false. He is still stating it’s under control when we are so far past handling it. 200k dead by the end of fall. Bravo. He’s really taken it seriously.

  11. UBI – If Jeff Bezos can amass a trillion dollars while a working man has to choose between his rent and his insulin, there is something so wrong with our wealth distribution that it is obvious we need to address the problem through direct redistribution. It will benefit our communities, and not just the poor.
