    Lester, I really like you. However, there are nights at the end of your show when I endure four minutes of commercials only for you to finish your broadcast with a promotion to watch the Kids Edition instead of a final, closing, poignant story of some sorts. Do something like they do on the weekend with, “and now for some good news.” Finish strong Lester.

    In the news, I’m seeing More and more Robots! They’re hailing the new “Labor Force”. Think about it, with the End of Covid-19 so ends the massive number of the Unemployed’s opportunities to find a job. Universal Basic Income (UBI) will be the major way to prevent widespread systematic actions of Revolt!!!

    I am a mother with a special needs non verbal autistic son. Mothers like myself have to make the choice to 1. Quit our jobs because our children can’t just be popped on a computer to learn alone. 2. Force special needs kids that absolutely learn nothing from a zoom class because they’re learning and attention deficit won’t allow. Or 3. Send them back to school so they have skilled professionals face to face so that their learning is worth while. It’s a VERY hard choice! Harder than imaginable! People MUST take into consideration the special needs children. And no one is.

    Did you know our atmosphere is 99.96% CARBON FREE? Crazy huh? How would we know? Well, Al Gore told us in his award winning “Inconvenience Truth” documentary. He said carbon dioxide constitutes around 400 PPM in our atmosphere, which is true! What he left out was the other side of the coin, that is the part of our atmosphere which is NOT carbon dioxide. So 999, 600 PPM is NOT carbon dioxide, mostly nitrogen and oxygen with a touch (1%) of trace gases just like CO2. Yes, CO2 is an infinitesimal trace gas. 999,600 PPM is 99.96% of our atmosphere all of which is NOT CO2, or CARBON FREE! Why is that not good enough for [DS] secret societies, including the MSM?

    With the high cost of food there is some things you can do to help your family and that is doing gardening even if you have a small home you can always do container gardening. Canning is another way to help especially now when you go down the canned aisle foods and see nothing on the shelf! Shop at Aldi’s and Save A Lot instead of the bigger stores they are just as good as the bigger stores too just much more cheaper! The Dollar Tree store is another good place to shop!

    Please believe in Jesus today before it’s too late. I want everyone to go to heaven with me.

    Parents in favor of their children returning to school are the ones in favor being tired of their children. If you’ve spent anytime in public schools you’d know, very little of what happens there is scholastic. Until every professional is back to work, full time, these children should be protected rather than used as a pandemic guinea pig and putting our loved ones at risk.

    On the issue of the spiking prices of meat, this might be a good opportunity to understand that you do not need to eat animals to be healthy. 🤷‍♂️

    To the mother that is willing to risk the life of their child over the facts slapping us in the face with both science and medicine both saying your gambling your child’s life in what is realistically one of the few avoidable high risk close quarter places where infection and spread is not a “if” it has been a constant of a virus with serious possible health complications and a very real threat of loss of life. I say this shame on you and those of a like mind. Children are not pawns this is not chess and we live only once. If a child has a will and want to learn and better themselves they will accomplish that goal with or without a classroom. And to be straightforward, is school to a current modern day child, a institution of learning or a social platform. Bored, today learning at home is possibly alive tomorrow or a few more down the road when we as a whole get a handle on this sickness. Then let the children of America’s future either go to a classroom to learn or be social butterflies. Because I’m sorry that’s the truth of the matter anymore about a classroom

    Failure 1, ignore the problem, “this virus will just go away, we have only eleven cases, and you will see soon it will be nearly zero”
    Failure 2, no National strategy for addressing the pandemic, “since it was going to hit democratic states hardest, and we can always blame those state governors”
    Failure 3, suppress the science and statistics, issue contradictory statements.
    Failure 4, reopen too soon while cases were increasing.
    Failure 5, attempts to usurp the covid-19 data by taking reporting away from the CDC.
    Failure 6, sending kids to crowded schools while Covid cases remain high in regions, guaranteeing the spread of the disease, as it matters not if children are harmed by the virus, (some are) the effect will be wide ranging spread of the disease to adults by those children.

    Mail voting is not safe anywhere, how come people can’t see that is beyond me, because mail fraud happens so many times on a daily basis, matter fact this happens so much that is not even talk about because it will prove Trump is right, is like a person wants someone else to believe that they have won sweepstakes and types it up and decorates it to make it look real tells the victim that they have to send 50 dollars in fees to be able to get the rewards, but its all a lie the victim gets taken for 50 dollars and no one to blame or catch because is all fake, now if this is so easy to do what do you stupid people out there think they can and will do with the votes, they can make up 100 more false ID’s send them up in that duplicated government envelope and there it is, bingo!!! I just explained two forms of fraud one that its done on a regular basis and the other that is waiting to happen, see the news on NBC will not put it to you like this, because they want you to think this can’t be done, so now that I have shown you all unless they edited this out and you may say that if bush the father took that presidency from his opponent that time, so imagine now this despread socialist have shown their capabilities by committing crimes to get Mr.Trump in the past, now as they plan and try to spoil it if Trump wins, this socialist will make such a biggest mess so that they would have recount but only if the votes are so many on Trump’s side that there is no way they can say the president cheated
