    does it seem that the only people that find all this uniquely and contemporaneously insightful are in the nation in question … ? sometimes the US appears like it’s living in a reality that existed centuries ago elsewhere in the world. like a proverbially self-obsessed anglo saxon teenager, navel gazing in a constant state of collective therapy …

    Blunt force trauma to the head and brain doesn’t happen accidentally in an office. You would have to have been hit with something very very hard. I would reopen this case and prosecute Joe. All of his rhetoric on msnbc on trump and the nasty things he says he needs to watch it. I would reopen it for the family’s sake. This looks beyond suspicious. ……….RIP Lori Klausutis

    Lori Klausutis  – was diagnosed in the autopsy by Joe’s personal friend who just happens to have a history of fraud  
    – had an “undiagnosed heart condition”
    – just happened to collapse in Joes office
    – just happened to crack her skull open on the one specific part of the office that could injure her

    China's ignorant, regressive reaction to the Wuhan coronavirus demonstrates exactly the kind of danger posed by authoritarian, corrupt governments–which is precisely what Traitor-'n-Thief Trump and Republicans are doing to American government. A very recent article published after this was written echoes the exact same warning: 'Tyranny is fueling the coronavirus pandemic'

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/tyranny-is-fueling-the-coronavirus-pandemic

    GOP and Trump administration: Where the hard reality of COV19 pierces the Republican cult bubble world of delusional fantasies, denialism, deceit, supreme ignorance, utter incompetence, and Orwellian governance, exposing them all as charlatans and frauds. Much as needed, we're hoping that doesn't happen; that America escapes the ravages of this disease, and we don't suffer thousands of American citizens dying, with many more becoming critically ill. Tragically, that doesn't seem very likely, and the Trump administration hardly inspires confidence, with all indications to date CONTRARY that they can capably handle such a catastrophe occurring here.

    NIH: "Not IF COV19 becomes an epidemic in the U.S.–it is WHEN. One to one-and-a-half years for a COV19 vaccine, soonest!" Meanwhile, Trump and Trumpettes: "Everything's fine, situation under control, carry on! We severely cut the budgets for NIH and CDC, got rid of the top health experts in this administration."

    I can debunk this guy's whole book in three sentences: When adjusting the government's poverty threshold measure for shelter inflation there are well over 100 million people in poverty. The government's metric is 50 years old. The metric is the cost of food each month times 3 in order to cover all typical minimum expenses, but because shelter cost has gone up at such fast rates it should generally at least be the cost of food each month times 6 and should be measured on a locality basis making it be the cost of food each month times 9 in some Metropolitan areas like SF. . .

    ***MEDIA FAIL*** — Generally respect Douthat's opinions, but while he gets much of it right in his book, Bernie Sanders is not Donald Trump. Nor is the Democratic Party the Republican Party. Detest such false equivalencies and fear-mongering. Douthat's lazy analysis engaging in both makes him part of the problem, not the solution.

    I don't live in decadence. I support a family of four on $43,000 a year. Over half of my monthly income goes to pay my rent. You guys at MSNBC are really stupid. This is a working class rage that is tired of the rich and elites taking everything for themselves and the working class getting less and less. WE have been having to beg at the rich table and just get crumbs dropped to us. 60% of American workers make less than $40,000 a year. Regular working people used to do fine on one income. Now, both parents must work just to break even. Meanwhile, the people at the top get big tax breaks and cry about it if they are asked to pay their fair share.

    Tell all those folks without health insurance, drowning in debt, or who can't afford a house they became "victims of their own success." Bernie's appeal is about economic justice, in an age where productivity and wealth increased exponentially, but the working class didn't see any of it.

    You left out that he has good ideas and tells the truth. Saying something is good even when it comes to a person that does bad things. If you say that an ancient leader was good at military strategies or good with weapons does not mean you are saying they are good people. It is not the same as good people on both sides. It's not the same as saying that we did some bad things too and killed some people too while covering for the bad actions of his warlord friends.

    The truth is that it's just the Americans complete and total ignorance socialism. As a person of Faith know where will you find in the Bible that the Lord Jesus would ever support conservatism it's just not there. Jesus has always been and always will be a socialist do unto others as you would have them do unto you love your brothers and sisters I love your enemies as yourself. And you keep on whining and crying about free healthcare Canada has had it for a long time. And one year Canada had a list of the most influential Canadians ever in Canada and the person who brought free health care was the one who won hands down. This just proves that the United States never was really a democracy it was an illusion and that was proven by the election of Donald Trump as being president. The Constitution not backed up by law is not a constitution at all. A true democracy works for the people who vote them in United States is owned by the corporate Elite

    The only reason that the the Republicans and the Democrats don't want a Bernie Sanders is there both paid off by corporate elitists the insurance companies don't want to lose their money when it comes to Health Care. And what happens when you vote for Bernie Sanders with his health care is that you are taking the health care out of the insurance company's hands. Insurance companies don't have the ability to decide who lives and dies under a Bernie Sanders. United States needs to take a good hard look at what I'm saying. This is why the Republican party wants the scrap Obama care because they want their HMO type Healthcare System. And those Americans who lived under an HMO know what I'm talking about. A person should not have to lose Consciousness because of a I wound on their body because they're too busy filling out forms and you tell the rest of the world that your Healthcare is great.
