…but doesn’t the post office need to be bailed out in a couple of months, to avoid going under?
Yes. USPS is predicted to run out of operating cash around Sept. 1st. They’ve requested something like $2B in emergency funding to keep afloat. I believe Trump has the power to veto that (someone correct me if I’m wrong). And Trump HATES USPS because he’s convinced they don’t charge Amazon enough to cover their actual costs.
(to Trump, Amazon, Jeff Bezos, and the Washington Post are one and the same)
Some people just don’t like to be told they have to do something when there’s no immediate visible threat.
When I stand at the seashore and look out over the water, I don’t see any fish. Therefore there are no fish.
Facial expressions and overall demeanor are not completely obscured by wearing a mask. So we got that.
Support of public radio seems surprisingly strong in these times. Witness KRVM’s successful abbreviated June membership drive.
By and large I’m seeing very good mask compliance here in Eugene.
I haven’t read it yet, but yes, that sounds like words that be would have spewed from his mouth, or possibly spewed from the mouth of one of his staunchest enablers.
Herman Cain, a Republican candidate for president in 2016, has been diagnosed with and hospitalized for COVID-19.
I’m sure there’s absolutely no connection to his attendance of big fat orange turd’s recent humiliating campaign rally.
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is in an Atlanta-area hospital being treated for the coronavirus, a spokesperson said in a statement.
Cain, a Black Voices for Trump co-chair, attended President Donald Trump’s June 20 rally in Tulsa.
KRVM’s abbreviated 3-day June 2020 membership drive raised more money than the same 9-day drive last year. That’s kind of impressive, what with the current level of general chaos.
Masks required of everyone at indoor businesses starting Wednesday. I’m sure that will go over well in towns like Burns and Madras.
Well it’s pretty well established that big orange turd doesn’t like written briefings. He probably never read it. Maybe if they’d presented it as a 30-second video narrated by Sean Hannity he might have paid some attention.
Whether he was briefed on the Russian bounty thing, or wasn’t briefed, it’s an epic fail by him and his hand picked team of morons. I’m sure he was briefed though and hopefully a paper trail will emerge proving it.
If he had an ounce of smarts he’d say “No but I should have been and I’m going to find out why I wasn’t and take action to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Of course he was briefed. Perhaps he was distracted while twatting lies during the briefing or watching Fox News or thinking about playing golf, so it didn’t register.
He said today he’s not a civilian, so he doesn’t have to follow any state requirements like wearing a mask or self-quarantining. Because, like, he’s a monarch, not a civilian.
The President of the United States was attending the graduation at West Point. He has an advance team. Either they screwed up big-time and didn’t install an appropriate, safe ramp for him to walk down…or Trump is full of shit. Which explanation do you think is most plausible?
This x 1000. The ADVANCE TEAM is supposed to figure all this out IN ADVANCE so there are no “slip-ups” so to speak. It’s another epic FAIL by Team Orange. Or, lies.
This actually gives me a little more hope in some of my fellow humans.
I see he’s blaming imaginary violent protesters for holding down the turnout of supporters of the big orange tub of goo.June 18, 2020 at 8:36 pm in reply to: Coronavirus outbreak linked to eastern Oregon church surpasses 200 cases #46890
Union County, the rural northeastern Oregon county home to the state’s largest coronavirus outbreak, voluntarily returned to Phase 1 of Gov. Kate Brown’s coronavirus reopening plan Wednesday.
The county is the first in Oregon to step backward under the governor’s gradual reopening guidelines. The move came after the county recorded a giant spike in coronavirus cases, from 22 on Sunday to 242 as of Wednesday.
Union County had entered Phase 2 of Brown’s reopening plan June 5. Under stricter Phase 1 regulations, gatherings are limited to 25 people or fewer, and churches are not allowed to meet in large groups.
State public health officials have linked the county’s outbreak to Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Island City, next to La Grande.
“That totally explains why he needs two hands to drink a bottle of water.”
Well, there is that.
The tubby orange man-child probably gets about 3 hours of sleep a night. He reputedly lives on cheeseburgers and Diet Coke. What could possibly go wrong with his health?
Just to be fair & balanced. 😉
The media has done a terrible job looking into rampgate. If the ramp was aluminum, with no traction treads, and Trump was wearing leather-soled shoes, it could indeed have been relatively slick. He’s doing the old man walk on a slippery ramp. It’s plausible. 🙂
