    As we patiently, and peacefully, await election results let’s discuss a major concern as the US passes 100,000 COVID-19 infections a day. For many months some Americans have resisted wearing protective masks, etc. because they, “Take away freedom.” Is this really about taking away our freedoms or something else? We are a county founded on the compassionate rule of law. We have seatbelt laws and second-hand smoke laws. These are just two small examples of laws enacted to protect us when we cannot protect ourselves and each other. When functioning properly our representatives in government have the ability, as defined by constitutions, charters, etc., to do those things we cannot do by all by ourselves. This may include building highways, providing K-12 education and let’s not forget protecting us from deadly forest fires, hurricanes, etc. Governors, legislators and judges from the three branches of government, in addition to the media, are working as best as they can, as quickly as they can and with the best available public health information to keep all of us safe; individually we do not have the collective expertise, human and financial resources to manage these challenges. If they need to do this legally by decree, executive order or other provisions allowed them during emergencies. They are doing their jobs.
    Although most people are doing the best they can to save lives there are some powerful few who are literally killing people. Take Trump and his super spreader events. A Stanford University study found his rallies have killed 700 people and infected 30,000. Columbia University published a study recently on how 130,000-210,000 lives could have been saved if this administration and his political devotees had not politicized a pandemic that has infected over 45 million and killed 1,200,000 world-wide – so far. (CDC – 40% of the infected are asymptomatic and never know they may be spreading COVID.) The good news is that by taking basic precautions the University of Washington projects we can save over 130,000 lives by February 1, 2021. Remember, this virus is about 8X deadlier than the 2019 flu and the third leading cause of death in the US only behind heart disease and cancer. Please fact-check all of this information yourself. Facing the truth is empowering, freeing. The sooner the more people accept reality, the sooner we can recover together as a country – grieve those we have loved and lost – and collectively address other urgent concerns.
    One last thing – we are fortunate. Do the people complaining about wearing a mask really have no idea what is a true loss of freedom? Have we learned nothing from history: slavery, disenfranchisement, imprisonment in jails, ghettos and concentration camps, inscription into armies, forced marriage, starvation… Over 85,000 children in Yemen have died since 2018 directly because of US foreign policy. Currently, another 100,000 Yemen children are starving but we can still save them by providing immediate emergency assistance with our International allies. We just have to care enough about their freedom, their literal right to life. I’d like to believe we are capable of understanding false equivalences. There is no comparing facial coverings and the right to life and freedom from extreme suffering. This may not be what we have expected but it is nothing new, not really. And we each have superpowers – our infinite capacity for creative adaptation and a little thing called love. Please feel free to share this post. Take care, stay safe out there and thank you.

    • paragraphs are your friend, but lecturing people will only get likes from those who are already disciples of what you preach, while alienating those who don’t already share your views.

      Notice how every country that’s successfully managed covid has done it by educating & making people feel like they are a part of the team & entitled to be involved in the decisions made, not by lecturing it’s people in what they MUST do?

  2. Trump needs to be locked in his bunker until this is over, with no mea s of communication with the outside

    • What communication there is from Trump between now and January 20th will be infantile and mean spirited. Trump will be the king of sour grapes.

      Bunkerbitchboy is curled up in a little ball of a man-child behind his fenced in bunker in the basement of our Whitehouse.

    • Trump needs to be locked up for the rest of his life!!!

      You have NO IDEA how much damage he will perpetrate this country. At least the Nuclear Football should be removed from his presence. I almost feel sorry for North Korea and Iran. They are going to be under extreme threat of a preemptive nuclear strike.

    • Keep him there until January 20th.

    I don’t understand Susan Collins, why? She’s not a good person 😕

    lets get something straight, 8 years with Obama and Moscow mitch and nothing happened with Biden and mitch, and I dont think mitch has a beating heart, just self interest, the senate will do the same as always, we need to impeach the mitch.

  5. Germany is praying for Biden! 90% of the German People would vote for him.

    • @flugsven Populist nationalists, as we’re having here in Norway too, are a dangerous source of politics, that is popular among small minded, ignorant and hateful people. I haven’t heard anyone here talk in positive terms of Trump, but if there are any, they are from among the populists. I can only hope that having seen the enourmous danger these kind of viewpoints have been for USA, demonstrated by Trump, there will be a lesson learned, but I doubt it. However I refuse to worry about anything now that Trump is actually losing ATM in USA. It will soon be a time to celebrate.

    • I love Germany 🇩🇪❣️ Thank you!

    • @Shawn Corbin c’mon don’t be a jerk.
      My sister’s name is Camilla and it’s pronounced almost exactly like Kamala’s except the “Ca” sounds like you’re going to say “cat.” Ca-milla. It’s an elegant, lovely name, as are the slight variations: Camille, Kamilla, Kamala, and there are others.

      It’s incredibly childish to make fun of someone’s name. Seriously. Most people outgrow that in grade school. Don’t reduce yourself like that. Debate! Disagree! Point out actions or ideas with which you have a problem! Absolutely! But making fun of her name? I, for one, believe that you’re better than that.

      Thank you I voted for Biden here in Vancouver Washington

      @Shawn Corbin “Awful” We are very glad it never reached Trump’s ears.

    🤔 remember when Trump called the coronavirus a political hoax against him. now Thousands are deceased

  7. I think this is going to be a great 😊 works under BIDENS Administration! Let’s hope! Be positive! 👍💯

  8. I’ll be happy if just ConALD TRE45ON is out of Office.

    • it may be all the Dems get right now. But give it time, the GOP is bound to do something illegal, immoral or just plain criminal.

  9. Moscow Mitch? In a Biden/Harris presidency, multiple indictments up to and including Treason should be expected, not a futuristic senate quarrel. Follow the Rubles!

    Guys don’t be discouraged everything is going to work out.

    • yep, men lie just as much as women lie is very true. numbers are facts and truth. unfortunately the trumpturds do not understand facts, they cannot read nor comprehend the easiest issues, just blinded by their racism and hatred for humankind….so very 😞 sad

    • @Grace Grazie lmao while biden sexually assaults women and democrats jump to his hide to silence women who have come forward lol. Ya you seem super intelligent backing that person 😂

      @Ian well l don’t think so they might try but with control of the house and the Senate majority

    • Yes please get old turtle neck fool out the devil is waiting on this demon

    Looks like those executive orders will come in handy after all, lets see how Mitch likes them apples

  13. I can’t believe that such a useless woman as Susan Collins is still elected. Obviously, people don’t learn their lessons.

  14. I like the part where Mitch refused to allow a vote on more relief for schools, first responders, hospitals, and small businesses.

  15. Richard Thomas | November 5, 2020 at 1:25 PM | Reply

    Well obviously the people of Maine have learned NOTHING .

  16. There is nothing positive to expect from Moscow Mitch.

    Yes put Trump in the Bunker until All the Ballots have been counted

  19. I don’t want to be crass but it doesn’t look like mitch will live to the end of his term

    Trump: “Where’d my lead go ver night?” Answer: “that’s what she said”. I mean, Hillary.
