  1. Trump Putin's puppet . | December 21, 2020 at 6:03 PM | Reply

    30 days until putin / trump illegal fake ugly presidency is over

    • It will be my birthday on that day, I will be 61 and I have NEVER wanted my birthday to come around as much as I have this birthday! The icing on the cake for me – pun intended – will be too see that orange wanna be dictator dragged out of the WH by his scrawny neck!

  2. Bat soup

  3. Thanks Yolanda!

  4. Great job dealing with the pandemic Joe! Geez!

  5. Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like they did in 1950s ?
    … .. .. ..

    • smaller corporate taxes and tax breaks to the wealthy tax loopholes and general apathy towards healthcare for all

    • Because your parents and grandparents believed in the “communist ghost”. You wanted to be free and low taxed instead of more taxes and good social laws. Your unions were also undermined by the Mafia.
      In Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Scandinavia we have igher taxes and social fees – but the healthcare is much better and cheaper than in the US. You don’t need to die or loose your home when you get unemployed. We have social systems for it! education is free from Kindergarden to University. Only housing is expensive – but our houses are much better than the ones in the US (with brick walls everywhere, electricity inside the walls, better windows and more enviromental friendly).

  6. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together. . . . . .

  7. Such a remarkable charge nurse. You can just tell she is fighting for her patients and her team❤

  8. Of all the things that t’rump has said that was him being honest, it had to be “No, I don’t take any responsibility at all.”
    Sweet pick there, republicans! 😅😂🤣

  9. Despite White House spin attempts, the COVID-19 response will go down as a colossal failure of the public health system of this country.

    Social distancing – use a mask – stay home as much as possible. It’s so important that people like this lady are also protected.

  11. One relief nurse for 14. One CNA on the floor. This is abysmal. No wonder they wanted to strike. Sometimes you have to play hardball with corporate to get what you need. If the average person sat bedside with a vent patient, they might change their holiday plans. Stay home, wear a mask. We know the drill.

    Striking during covid how stunning and brave !

  13. Much love and prayers Brethren Amen
    God bless Humanity Amen


  15. Great final message at the end there. Unfortunately the orange cultists and the Covid deniers that call this virus a hoax will never understand

    • Isn’t it outrageous that there are thousands of deaths every day due to COVID-19 and increasing numbers of cases and hospitalizations and yet so many covidiots still deny the reality of this pandemic? Yet, with no evidence, no proof of voter fraud, and dozens of failed lawsuits, they claim that the election was rigged and believe Trump’s lies and conspiracy theories.

    God bless all the doctors and nurses who are putting their own lives at risk, and working overtime non stop to save the lives of people who are dying during this pandemic.. Please Lord, provide for them and their families. Give them the help they need to stay safe, have all the equipment they need, and please Lord, let them know how much we appreciate them. Amen.

  17. So something that didnt happen is a story, if you buy the original premise.

    Doctors and nurses want to put patients first, but have to fight with Corporate to get what they need to do the job right. This is shameful.

  19. So if they went on strike who would be taking care of the patients?

  20. Every single person who voted for Donald should be required to volunteer at their local hospitals and food banks. ‘Nuff said.
