    Do you think for one minute that Congress cares about the American people, now ask your self. I feel sorry for Congress for turning away from their own people, the American people think about other American people.

    The real issue is not how amazing, wise, artculate, compassionate this kid is (and he is). It is how come in the world’s wealthiest country millions go hungry. Look at the big picture not just the human interest item.

    Congress needs to get this stimulus package restored to get this economy back happy Thanksgiving

    With as much food as Walmart and other supermarkets throw away, it would be nice if they would join team America during this time of national emergency and donate the food instead of willfully throwing it away.

    And that is why nothing changes in this country because systems are put in place to throw scraps at people in times like this. *In order to change things — STOP THIS. Come out on to the streets to protest, riot, do whatever you have to do to get the right people in the govt* who will help Americans instead of United Corporations of America.

    In 2016 people voted for the republican party and trump little did they know or knew what they had created an evil empire , “TRUMP’S DEADLY SINS” This type of mentally is highly disturbing! 10 million infected familys Nationwide millions are jobless over 200,000 have died , in the middle of pandemic ! “only death panels the inhumane treatment of asylum seekers South of the border And their children” not to mention , covid Kelly Loeffler from Georgia. “It amazes me how easy it is to manipulate the human mind” their no excuse for ignorances and stupidity!
    Trump and his republican-held senate together with his followers are criminal organizations and voter suppression “Lindsey Graham” ! , not to mention “Rudy Giuliani”, Hugo Chavez deceased 1954-2013 “We the people will use military force” they’re a danger to them self’s and others not to mention the world , now it’s time to concede so Emily Murphy do your job !

    There is no doubt that when Trump leaves the WH he will continue to wage war against American democracy. He will spare no effort to widen and deepen the social and economic divisions that already seriously threaten our national security. The Fake-GOP will continue to enable Trump to do his evil worst as they remain his craven slaves!

    • Jack pine Savage Reply

      The problem is the news networks are addicted to reporting on what he has to say. His fan base will support anything he does after he is out of office. The other half of the nation will continue to hit the mute button on their remote control for the television every time they see him start to talk. We came really close to seeing a dictatorship replace our Republic had he been re-elected to serve four more years. Good riddance. The less I see news reports about him after he leaves office, the better.

    Fisrt off this kids have had to grow up in uncertain times and there strength is amazing. But too are news agencies. Question how about instead of slowing down there progress your network get involved with helping them hand out food boxes or use a minute of your networks time help these group find much needed volunteers.

    I hope these people are not wasting food. After worling in the food industry for 2o years , we ameicans waste enough food every week to feed a small country. Let this be a lesson “you can have today and tomorrow you can be in a food line”. Anyone that voted and support #45 the one because of his lies that put them in this predicament should be sent to the back of the line……..I bet they put on a mask to get free food. God Bless Americans that have brain enough towear a mask.

    [Nov 25] <><> PROFFERED OPTION 3 to US SUPREME COURT in seeking ELECTION FINALITY & HEALING a UNION DIVIDED when its survival is at stake <><> Trump Team is pursuing 2 legal Paths to SUPREME COURT ELECTION FINALITY [Fox Bus, Nov 23] <><> I recuse myself, as a scientist & editor [31 Utube books herein, Amazon & more than a million citations by GOOGLE], from debating election politics, except presenting these unequivocal facts that are claimed to lead to no alternative but a national runoff solving these survival issues [see below]. The proffered Option 3 is my own, original, and totally independent of anyone. It reads, in short: — KNOWINGLY & INTENTIONALLY US MEDIA HIDES and DELETES, even herein, ITS STEALTHY, ELECTION ASYMMETRY that, as proved below, had invalidated it before Nov 3, FACTS reported by JHU, WHO, ECDC, NHC, DXY, CDC for ~1OO nations, as summaries of thousands scientists, nurses & health workers efforts, inter alia publishing – U.S. is DOWN TRENDING % FATALITIES from COVID-19 diagnosed victims, E.G. 2.75 % [on Oct 22] v. 2.09 % [on Nov 25] <> IN COMPARISON WITH OTHER COUNTRIES, by %F on Nov 2 v.

This MEDIA ELECTION INVALIDATION ASYMMETRY had legally voided U.S. election before Nov 3 by Unrepairable Election Invalidations, [UEI], neither state governors or election committees, nor state courts or the US Supreme Court can fix or ever can validate. UEI would then evaporate, unity recovered, pandemic SCIENCE divorced from runoff, AND, reported countries’ pending pretext for WORLDWIDE LOCAL WARS RESPONCES to considered WH attack on Iran [NYT], the runoff would certainly return to drawers.
