    Matt Putz looks like McMurphy after he got the lobotomy in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. I know I shouldn’t make fun of him, but I guess a little Trumpty Dumpty rubbed off on me over the past four years.

    The Republican Party has a communicable disease. It has been intimate for so long with President Trump that it acts pretty much as he does. He lies and then Republicans lie about his lies — they don’t matter, just noise, the wall is more important, etc. These evasions are intended to suggest that moral squalor can be cleansed by a jump in the Dow Jones or a handshake with Kim Jong Un. The months of Trump have taken a toll. The GOP has been stripped of its dignity and honor by a president who has neither.

    The ” who needs science, there’s money to be made” republicans never cease to amaze.

    He and all those who attended should be charged with blatant disrespect for the safety of New Jersey residents and pay a hefty fine for their law-breaking party! What a hypocrite Matt Gaetz is wearing what looks to be a gas mask while in congress, and partying it up in New Jersey with no mask, social distancing, etc. File impeachment hearings on him now as well! This is why we don’t have Covid-19 under control in our nation is because some people believe the law or safety of others (besides themselves) doesn’t apply to them! They are wrong on all counts!!

    But when are we going to stop blaming the organizers of these events and blame the people that attend. It’s been 8 months now, they hear the number of infections/deaths every day, they have heard the health officials say what we need to do to save lives yet they go anyway. They obviously don’t value their lives or others – they have made no effort to help. So our prayers should be directed on behalf of the attendees: “Dear Lord! Even the great and mighty OZ could not give these “knuckleheads” a heart so Lord will you please make over their hearts and their brains” . A men.

    ..Judging and celebrating that Trump will be off the world political stage; the pharmaceutical companies and the “informative” media announce that the vaccines are already ready, although the WHO “warns” that with vaccines the pandemic will continue and then the UN appears warning that the vaccines will not stop the sanitary restrictions and that it would be the organization that directs post-pandemic world… do you realize why electoral fraud? r-evolucion-revelacion.es/vacunas-y-diplomacia-politica

    Dear Mr. President Trump, I am the best veteran of the HCM city armed forces ,recognized collectively .I am a person who respect you, love you and i have a few words of respect to you . I said :”For America ,president Trump fought the law to the end .For himself, president Trump admitted losing “.Indeed ,only stupid people say postal voting is not fraudulent .Why ? Because it is a human being , not a saint ;so the fraud,corruption ,bribery … is something that happens more or less .Therefore , i sympathize with you .Because America is transparent ,fair ; it is necessary to endure legal struggle .My country in VN , has been through thousands of years of foreign domination ,hundreds of years of war destruction . Maybe a part of the nation has been bribed or subdued ,but the whole Vietnamese people have not been subdued .History has proven this .In short , I wish you the legal victory and the election of the second term . Respectfully ,.
