    Well, and you are part of it, he has been personally attacked based on his beliefs he has not lobbed the first grenade. Sure you went after him him based on actions on other sites but frankly have not seen it here on this site. Just remember you are on record you spoke highly of Trump early in the primary process.

    Do you see me on here calling self styled conservatives / republicans as birthers, teabaggers, trumpkins, bible thumping deporables conspritards ? I can point out many rants on here that he started that were the reverse of that. Your ok Defending that **** all you want because he may align with some of you ideas? Bull ****. We have had discussions for years with normal discourse and disagreed amicably without having to resort that.

    As for Trump, you are correct. I did support him in the primary and i did vote for him. You also know well my reasons stemming from the disdain i hold for both these parties. I have also met him personally several times and can remember him sitting in my grandfathers office on couple occasions. I had hoped that he would settle into a presidential like demeanor and remain opposed to the two party crime families that ruined our republic. Alas that didn't happen. His behavior has degraded even more and he displays a level of narcissism and self-aggrandizing that is an embarrassment. Not to mention he has become a partisan hack like all the rest of them .
    In fact i am glad you brought up my early support of trump, because it highlights the idiocy and the falsity of the rants of the person we are talking about.

    I see him posting links to websites. I honestly do not click on links to network news channels, I do not watch network news I avoid network news. Does not make me a better person, at this point in my life I avoid people and things that annoy me. I use the word annoyed rather than being a victim and saying offended. Thing is people who are extreme will expose themselves over time, sometimes if you know the train wreck is coming watching the blissful trip to the crash is entertaining to watch.

    I do honestly feel guilty was talking about it yesterday with the kids, the virus has really not had any effect on my job or my life I have got to spend days with my grandson that under normal circumstance would not have happened. I am secure in my employment and can take advantage of how it effects the housing industry and auto sales. I have been home instead of constantly traveling, hell the virus has been a blessing. Sorry world my thoughts are with you.

    I am grateful to still be employed and receiving my full paycheck even though it means three days per week, I am doing job responsibilities that I would never choose on my own. Sometimes, I complain and I come home pissed off from work which is not at all normal for me. But, I could be worse off than I am suppose.

    Called an infection guy last night to see if one of my guys should be worried about a possible exposure. Not real sure why but after he started talking about "viral loads" I was laughing and didnt really pay attention. It was a long night.

    “Now, Germany — we’re very close to Germany. We have a very good relationship with Germany. Germany has done very good. They have a very low mortality rate like we do. We have a low mortality rate also."

    He might be the worst leader we have ever had, I thought after the mid-march press conference that he figured this out.

    We have no national Strategy for COvid-19
    He is undermining Gov in states
    He can't answer a simple question anymore without acting like a spoiled child

    We have Biden who is probably worse, thanks Obama

    Just read that out loud in my head, in his voice, and now I can't stop chuckling.

    Sweden has a population of 10 million; which puts it between Chicago and Los Angeles. It also does not have Federalism.

    Apples to Orange Man Bad.

    A strategy has nothing to do with population, it's just a strategy. I never stated it was a good one or a bad one. I stated at least they had one.

    What is the national strategy for the US? Right we don't have one

    Yeah, so Oklahoma is going into phase 2 reopening on Friday. I've decided that I will go grocery shopping and restock the already full pantry on Thursday, the 14th and we are not heading back out to encounter the crowds until June 1st. May be a little overkill but it should be interesting to see if there is a spike. I've also decided to make career change, maybe. I've said that a couple of times and then we get a big ol hailstorm..
