    How can it possibly be a mixup for a adult cop to handcuff! That is definitely police brutality, even if they thought it was a stolen car how would young children be a threat. This can’t be made “right” these children have been horribly traumatized. No amount of counseling is going to change that. The police everywhere are aware of the tensions caused by the action of their own, even so they went ahead and forced children to lay on the ground while they handcuffed them. This is deliberate on the part of the police.

    Oh, boy. Trump, not satisfied with dividing and destroying the US from within, is now moving on to the rest of the world. Apparently Lebanon is up first, where he’s inciting fear and disruption by randomly insisting, without any actual information, that the Beirut port explosions were bombs. Watch out, world, he’s coming for YOU. We’re really sorry.

    Okay. It is now August 5. The Election is in three short months. We’ve already blown our window of opportunity to set up national voting by mail. This isn’t something you just set up in a month or two. The republicans knew this way back in April, when they refused to add necessary funding to support building a secure national mail-in voting system to the Covid-19 relief bills. You know, the republicans. The folks who are already on record saying that if all the folks who currently can’t vote because they can’t get to polling places actually voted, they’d never win another election. THOSE republicans.

    A mix-up is when you mean to get apples and get oranges instead. This is completely crazy and appalling. When defund police comes into the conversation I’m a white conservative man and I support redirecting funding away from the police and towards social programs, because as you can see our police are so incompetent it has to offer therapy to people it interacts with, clearly incapable of protecting and serving.

    It is okay if it takes times to count every voter’s voting ballot. Why in the heck do you have to have the results in on night given that voter should not have to stand in long line at inadequate polling places not to mention risk getting ill from Covid. Voting via absentee ballot is legal and required at this time. So we the people do not need any barriers to prevent people from voting safely. Some states already allow their citizens to vote by mail without any problems. So we must not listen to a rogue President Trump or his minions attempting to prevent people from voting via of an absentee ballot. Stop playing with our democracy and let people vote with their absentee ballot and take the time to count every last one the ballot. We must get this right and it is not necessary to have the winner known the day of the election or even the next few days if everyone’s vote has not been counted. Why not hire additional people to work at the post office to handle the extra volume of mail, this is done for the filing of our income taxes and during Christmas. Yet the new Postmaster Inspector General is slowing our mail delivery just prior to the up coming elections is deployed and instructed by Trump and his minions must be prevented and should be illegal. This win at by any means including implementing barriers, lying, cheating, etc must be prevented.

    Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!

    The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

    Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).

    But here’s the problem:
    Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.

    We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

    The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).

    The good news?
    Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!

    Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.

    “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

    But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!

    “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

    Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
    Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?

    We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:

    “Dear God,
    I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ amen.
