    Love the ‘toon. Kinda like the USA in late 1941. Everybody knew big big scary changes were coming, while eagerly and incompetently trying to learn new lessons. By 1945 we weren’t so dumb. 2020 covidiots [ if they live] will look back years from now and wonder WTH?

    Good one! It’s altogether proper and fitting that we govern ourselves— but just take a look around at ‘ourselves’. Tens of millions of covidiots, for starters.

    Andy puts so much effort into his propaganda rants that ya almost hate to bring him down. Almost…

    By their own admission, before the COVID-19 outbreak Republicans/Trump proudly de-funded and dismantled our medical emergency preparedness capabilities.

    Immediate emergency funding for medical resources has already been [nearly – see Rand Paul] unanimously passed by Congress.

    Emergency economic stimulus funding has nothing directly to do with the medical situation, it is [or should be] used for all segments of society, [they call them ‘special interests’ when named individually] that need rescue.

    The truths, half-truths, and outright make-em-ups presented by this latest Republican meme will probably backfire on them. A majority of Americans might just realize that they support most all the things that our Democratic & Independent representatives are fighting for.

    New England Patriots from 1999 to 2019:

    Six titles

    Nine Super Bowls

    Thirteen AFC championship games

    Eighteen playoff game wins

    Nineteen seasons of 10+ wins

    Twenty consecutive winning seasons

    Factor in the NFL’s unique policy of ‘scheduling for parity’ (more wins = harder schedule), and New England can proudly stake its claim as the greatest dynasty in sports’ history.

    You said it! The Trumpies whom I work with, blue collar heroes all, previously demanded sanitizer wipes for devices & surfaces when the company went paperless— stopped washing this week and suddenly started shaking hands.

    There is a clear moral choice here for all those who would resist Trump. Vote!

    The nominee is the one I vote for even in the event my personal choice doesn’t make it.

    Sorry for the miscommunication. Of course I thought my meaning was clear – the moral imperative is to vote for our nominee, whomever that should be.

    All you say is true if the front end of the process doesn’t get confused by the complexity of it all.

    Everyday American people are the front end of the equation and we are obviously confused. There is a clear moral choice here for all those who would resist Trump. Vote!

    All I can do is vote my conscience without any overly complicated reservations. The nominee is the one I vote for even in the event my personal choice doesn’t make it.

    Your bottom line reasoning hypothesis is deeply flawed— you would never accept such anti-scientific method speculation were the subject biology.

    Trying to reason with ourselves as to who is the most electable is no kind of proper way to fulfill our civic & moral obligations.

    If one truly believes in individual self-determination within the limitations of a democratic-republic framework, the person who receives the most individual votes – primary election or general – is by definition the ‘right’ representative for us as a group. With so much on the line this election, removing oneself from the resistance is not a viable moral option.

    Supporting the agreed upon [by fair & square vote] candidate should be almost automatic, barring any ironclad moral objections.

    Our reasonableness and willingness to cooperate as a society and as individuals isn’t worth spit if we don’t follow through with our support for those things— namely our vote to the one we as a group decided on.

    So let me get this straight…

    Bernie stands for all the things our progressive American grandparents, our progressive parents, and our progressive kids strongly believe in.

    If you are too afraid of the continuing progress that America has sought for 240 years, by all means vote for Trump or some corporate ‘moderate’.

    If our conscience and commitment to positive change is stronger than our fear— Trumpism is toast.

    I know, let’s vote on it!

    Social Security

    Sunday socials

    We are not scared of democratic socialists. There is nothing more American than the idea of equal treatment for all.

    Most people seem to agree with social democrats’ stated morals & ideas— at least until they find out who stated them…
