    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    Balletmaus- one of the reasons US Americans are so fixated on immigrant status is that for us, unless we are Native American, immigration happened fairly recently, compared with more stable European countries. But that doesn’t address your question about Turkish-Germans, for example.

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    Per the NYT today, the purging of the Pentagon and installing of loyalists may be to bring all troops in Afghanistan home by Christmas. I am surprised Trump is able to think about anything but his election loss, but then his handlers may be urging him on. In addition, he wants to declassify...

    US Presidential Race Returns - PBP

    I saw video of Amish wagons with Trump flags. Unsure if legit or not. The NYT has a funny video of non- Americans commenting on our crazy process. They compared the shape of one gerrymandered district to a Jackson Pollock painting

    Voting: What’s Happening in your State

    I just signed up to be an election judge. I have mixed feelings. I want to help with getting out the vote, but this seems a bit like the passive way to do it. My theory is that the older volunteers who often serve might be fearful of contacting ****, so I’m a replacement for one of them. But a...

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread

    I live in the Twin Cities. Riots, looting in Mpls., then looting at a St. Paul Target, then malls/grocery stores began closing as a precaution. The hospital where I work (I am remote right now) - which is the one that treated George Floyd - has locked its external doors as a precaution...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    It could also be one of his many distraction stunts. Throw something out, see what sticks to the walls.. Get eyeballs and lots of media time. He is a genius at yanking people's chains. Probably planning another under the wire pro-pollution exec order while we're not watching.

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    In Minnesota, we now have 19 cases in a meatpacking plant at our border with Iowa. Perhaps 19 of the “liberate” protesters could drive down and take those job openings. >:-(

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    just listened to my governor's daily press conf (Minnesota), one of the (Democratic-governor) states Trump sicced his minions on. A reporter asked about the protesters. Gov. Walz gave a calm response. An ICU RN also calmly discussed the devastating impact of the ***** on her, her colleagues, her...
