ER residents want Americans to stop calling them heroes and start calling Congress: 'It'd be nicer to see something more tangible'. "They're clapping for us every day, and that's cute and all, but if you really do look at us as heroes, do us a favor and write to your congressman and say, 'Why don't you forgive their loans?'" says an ER resident in Chicago.

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I've Read. He has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace. He is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless - and he kicks them when they are down. More here.

Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer is target of numerous threats made on Facebook. Members from four private Facebook groups have promoted acts of violence against Whitmer and the defiance of her state-wide social-distancing orders. Group members called for assassination of Whitmer ahead of Thursday's rally. Article here.

Our USPS has requested Emergency Relief funding from President Donald J. Trump and his Administration, yet all he's done is call it a "joke" and appoint one of his major campaign donors to be the next postmaster general. Join Brenda Lawrence to Demand Emergency Relief Funding for USPS now! .

"Demagogue for President: The Rhetorical Genius of Donald Trump. A book by Jennifer Mercieca states that a demagogue is an unaccountable leader and Donald Trump is a genius, unfortunately, at using rhetoric to prevent himself from being held accountable. She calls him a dangerous demagogue because he uses weaponized communication strategies which deny consent and provoke outrage. Video interview here. Website here.

Justin Amash Wants to Destroy the System that Created Trump. "The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions. The parties value winning for its own sake, and at whatever cost. Both parties when it comes to the major issues follow the same line. With the coronavirus relief packages basically, they had the system in mind where you'd have the Treasury secretary and the Federal Reserve handing out cash to the biggest corporations and taking care of the people who are well-connected and you'd have a more convoluted system for everyone else".

Joe has cut my hair for decades. He is a great guy but I never talk politics with Joe. The other day I called Joe to see how he is doing since he had to close his shop pursuant to the governor's order. Somehow Joe brought up politics. He said he hated to admit it but both he and his wife voted for tRUMP. He wasn't crazy about tRUMP but he and his wife hated Hillary. Now Joe says that it was a terrible mistake. He can't believe how awful tRUMP is. The final straw for Joe was when tRUMP praised the gun toters who invaded the Capitol and also Governor Whitmer's home. Joe had his fill of weapons of war in Viet Nam. Joe does not love Joe Biden. But he will absolutely vote for Biden. He despises tRUMP. Joe also thinks that Whitmer is doing a great job. He thinks the lockdown was crucial, even though he had to close his shop. So in this horrible week I encountered a reason to be optimistic. Richard

Most people who know me know how much my law enforcement family of friends mean to me, I love each and every one of all my friends in blue. However, please know this isn't just about PD across the country, as the video of the young woman in central park shows us as well as Ahmaud Arbery. George Floyd should still be alive. Whatever his folly. He should be alive today, perhaps alive holding a citation or ticket, not dead prepping to be buried. This has been a rough few weeks. Sam Logan Khaleghi

On my walk this morning I came upon the lawn sign shown below. It may be one of the best ever. It was created by nwgsd.org., an organization I had never heard of. What do the initials stand for you may ask? They stand for Nasty Women Get Shit Done. Check out its web site. All profits from sales of its items go to liberal organizations. Richard
