Not so, @RAGs. He absolutely understands “independent.” That’s WHY he kicked this guy out. He wants to just parcel out money to himself!
WHO ranks the US at around #37 for quality of healthcare. We are absolutely #1 on most expensive, however – at least 50% higher cost than #2, and unlike #2 we don’t even cover everyone in the country. And we cover fewer now, thanks to job loss and #45’s refusal to reopen the Obamacare enrollment during a healthcare crisis.
Let’s be crystal clear here: Republicans are so desperate to remain in power that they are willing to KILL their fellow Americans.
After all, their real constituency are the 0.1%, so they can’t appeal to everyone else.
A comprehensive analysis done by the nonpartisan Brennan Center, which found that it is more likely that an American “will be struck by lightning than that he will impersonate another voter at the polls." To be precise, incident rates are between 0.0003 and 0.0025 percent.
There have been investigations for voter fraud in multiple states, by the federal government, and examined by judges; in some cases looking exhaustively at records from EVERY STATE (that one found the fraud rate to be “infinitesimal” – 10 cases of impersonation fraud alleged in 12 years, and 56 cases of non-citizen voting. In TWELVE YEARS).
VOTER FRAUD IS A MYTH.
The “anti-voter-fraud” actions are in fact deliberately fraudulent themselves, and are used as cover for blocking legitimate voters.
Read for yourself – there are links to the studies here:
Oh, don’t forget that #45 is making money off hydroxychloroquine either directly (through his stock) or indirectly (Novartis ADMITTED to paying Michael Cohen $1.2m just for access to #45)…so he’d sell the guns to a higher bidder, no doubt.
It’s not limited to obnoxious megachurch pastors looking to get their major Easter cash or idiots who say they are “covered in the blood of Jesus” (a quotation from a woman stopped in her car without benefit of mask or anything else); apparently some orthodox Jews are having their big Seders collectively despite orthodox rabbis declaring that having a “Zoom Seder” is completely okay. The real irony of that one is that seders are in honor of Passover – when Jews STAYED IN THEIR HOMES to avoid the Angel of Death, and ate unleavened bread because there was no time to prepare better bread. It’s what Passover is all about!
Only if you are running barefoot and naked down the street with a big gun or three.
There are some pretty straightforward things we can do.
1. More aggressive enforcement of false advertising, notably of Fox “News” which has itself admitted that it runs only four hours of actual news out of 24 – I’d love to see them forced to rebrand themselves…
2. Accurate headlines:
- “Fauci’s facts shut down by lying politician who owns stock in hydroxychloroquine company” (just heard that today…of course)
- “Administration lies again”
3. Absolutely ignoring Twitter
And now we know that #45 owns shares in a company that makes hydroxychloroquine. Of course.
How about the LEAST responder?
