    I asked why Trump spoke in such glowing terms of all the people he assigned a positions and the castigated and vilified them when they disagreed with him or got some of the spotlight.
    Then Chris didn't want to talk about it any more.

    A woman reporter asked Trump the other day, why he hired such liars and low lives to such important positions, he failed to reply and got up and walked away.
    His house of cards is starting to collapse. He's never really had plan 'A' and certainly no plan 'B' to fall back on.

    Why else would Trump demand no disclosure signatures and a phalanx of lawyers to protect his lying ass.
    My brother is also trump-ite. He told me if I had half a brain I would support trump. You can't argue wth logic like that.

Those that weren't in that family, kept their distance from the ones close to them. Common sense and good hygiene.

    Chris
    If its all just hype, then why don't the Christ stains just gather around, get down on their knees, let the minister of their choice grab them by the puddy, get covered in the coming of the laud, oh schweet cheeses, but then not get a test.

    If I understand your thinking correctly Chris, it is the getting of the test that makes a person have the virus. Why do they need to practice good hygiene at all? Are you trying to spread fear by telling the church rally folk to keep their distance. That doesn't make sense.

    A good 300 people or 300 good people?

    Common sense does not come easy for a christ stain. Proverbs 2:2 says "Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding" which sounds tops, but turn a few pages and Proverbs 3:5 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding" so that means to completely disregard everything learned and data-driven and what heck good ole common sense. So it must be very difficult.

    Crikey, just wandering about and minding your own business must be very difficult for the christ stains. All abashed in the brain Psalm 32:9 says "Be not a horse or mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you". Hold on, that means don't be a dumb ass and keep your wits about you, but heckythump a minute ago the book said to disregard understanding.

    Oh you HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING. I just turned the page, all thumbed and licked with spittle and blow me down Proverbs 3:13 says "Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding". Now understanding is back on the good heap?

    As for the coronavirus and the COVID-19 tests (+ve , we with knowledge say) its like a 'T' but more like a 't', its a sign, a symbol. Christ stains need everything spelled out for them as their book was written in Hebrew and Arabic, bits lost and bits traded and swapped and shared with the Muslims so they need pity, I understand. Oops, got lost there, back on the COVID positive tests John 6:2 says "And a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing (+) on the sick".

    And me? Peter?. 2 Peter 3:16 says "As he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures."

    I buhleeve that some peeps in here are truly incapable of understanding. They are so stuck, stuck like the pages of the book, full of the warmth and coming of the laud, and truly incapable of understanding what is going on.

    Good luck to them, for they are just waiting - since the the sign was nailed up saying 'Israel' - for the excitement of seeing the death and destruction and the coming of the LAUD.

    So what do they care? Open it up I say. Take some sick down to the church and ask them to mingle with the good folk down there. Grab a few by the puddy. Get a handful to drop to their knees and rub a dub dub cover them all with the warm and cheesy coming of the laud. They will likely have a nice day.

    Hey Chris, have you considered running such an experiment with the 300? Get half to pray and don't wash their hands, get the other half to wash their hands and don't pray. We could see just which unseen force gets people into heaven faster.

    I say try it, give it a go OK? Can't hurt, maybe it will, maybe not but we're making PRAgress and doing well and the numbers, oh the numbers they're going up. Gotta beat the Russians. Good people. On both sides.

    I really feel sorry for everyone. Wife and I have not ever been inspired to restaurant our meals. We went to a few places that served amazing low cost specials for breakfast. We ate out when traveling but much at home. We've done plenty of special dinners over the years but not regularly
    We are happy with ourselves at home since our circle of friends has moved or died over the decades.
    Now that the wife has dementia going out is not really an option.
    So to all those dying, or willing to get opt to chance getting sick and die, to get out to normalcy of paying high prices for food and drink. Have fun!
    Eventually maybe that loud popping sound will be a not so great America pulling its head out of its ass.

    Well, that was weird...

    I was keeping my social distance and it seems somebody with the ability to get inside the forum settings changed my password.

    Daboo, do you know who may have done that, pray tell? Administraitors have that kind of trick too up their molle-inspired robes, I buhleeve. Not that I'd point the finger at anyone, including y'all . Good people, on both sides.

    Anyway, praise the laud and fill me with the light and warmth of cheeses.

    The news comes as Trump, the White House and the president's re-election campaign organization have been criticized for hosting an event in an enclosed, 19,000-seat arena in Tulsa.

    Chris my friend, you're outnumbered not just in the US, but world-wide. I'm starting to wonder if Trump is the Anti-Christ--he's certainly as anti-core-message-of-Jesus as anyone can be: lies constantly, is as George Will tagged him, a 'Bloviating Ignoramus', is a money grubbing con man and always has been, is as racist as it comes, is disrespectful of women who don't submit to him, and so much more. Someone might assasinate him, in which case the real syrupy fake Christian, Pence, will rise up and seize the reins ala Book of Revelations. I think finally there is hope the giant cadre of Republicans now sheepishly hoping to continuing riding on his wave of blind support towards re-election will finally pay the ultimate price of their shameful unwillingness to call a spade a spade. Sadly, the 81% of 'evangelical' Christians who helped elect this Anti-Christ turned a very blind eye to him and continue their support to this very day, despite everything everyone has witnessed about him which only gets worse by the day. Why is that? Do they have the antithesis of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome?', wherein they simply cannot see what stares them in the face daily, hourly? I'm guessing a good part of it comes down to this: once you've committed to this line of reasoning and belief it's very hard to admit you were wrong, very very wrong.

    Chris, you're a very good guy, I know that. And again, thank you for being a VERY gracious host to our time with you on the fabulous North Cascade Highway. I hope to do that again some day. If you make it out to Colorado I would love to take you out for a ride thru our own wonderland of twisty roads.

    I wish I could support our president, or at least have something to argue with as I like to take all sides of a discussion. But he really makes it tough and I am finding it just about impossible to support his reign or anything he does or says. There is no question that Trump is his own worst enemy and is likely going to take the Republican Party down with him. I really want there to be at least two political parties (I think three would be better) and philosophies as we can't have just one view on every subject, especially when a lot going on seems to be in favor of whomever yells the loudest. Not my idea of how to run a country.

    I've been an independent voter all my life. Never belong to a political party. (Whoever decided to call a political group a party, should stay out of the party planning business) Over the years I've voted for more Republican presidential candidates than Democrats. Let me repeat that, I more often voted Republican. This year, for the first time in my life, I'm voting a straight Democratic ticket. Not even looking at the ballot. Are the Democrats good candidates? NFW. But I'm disgusted by an entire party that would put politics ahead of the destruction of America.

    I guess this does show just what kind of support President Trump has. The guy seems to be doing the social distancing pretty well, so thumbs up, eh?

    So lets all go out to the bar now that things have opened up,,!!


    EAST LANSING, MI. (WILX) - At least 85 people connected to Harper's Restaurant and Brew Pub tested positive for COVID-19. At least 52 of them are Ingham County residents.


    Harper's Restaurant & Brew Pub. (Source: WILX)
    The Ingham County Health Department said of those 85, 80 were diagnosed after visiting the restaurant. It is believed the other two caught the virus from someone who was there.

    Most people are showing mild symptoms and aren't hospitalized. At least 10 are asymptomatic.

    Harper's closed Monday, shortly after two people tested positive for the coronavirus.
    The bar opened June 12 when restaurants were allowed to reopen, but patrons packed the sidewalk waiting in line to get in.
    Harper's owners said in a statement it is installing a new heating and cooling system and a line management app to help control crowds.

    The Ingham County Health Department said anyone who was at the bar between June 12 to June 22 should quarantine at home for 14 days and get tested for COVID-19.

    Another victory for C19 as footage emerges of 100-strong choir singing without masks at Mike Pence event

    The church choir sang at a Texas rally attended by Pence, days after the state governor warned of a surge in coronavirus cases.

    A choir of more than 100 members performed without masks at a Texas church on Sunday, during a rally attended by US Vice President, Mike Pence.

    The singers gathered at First Baptist Church in Dallas for the ‘Celebrate Freedom Rally’, which was attended by nearly 2,200 people. Venue capacity for the indoor event is usually around 3,000 attendees.

    During the rally, the choir performed multiple times without a mask. When they were seated in between songs, they reportedly put their masks back on.

    Pence, who gave a speech at the rally, is seen wearing a mask and clapping along (watch below). He reportedly removed his mask to give his speech.

    Catch the full performance here;

    Some counties in California (mostly in Southern California) are being ordered to shut their bars or not open them up, by the Governor, due to the infection rates quickly rising. It seems to me that the horse may have already left the barn in those counties where the bars and social clubs were already open.

    One practice that can enhance social distancing is to eat beans and other gassy causing foods and fart in other folks general direction.
    Audibly if possible without soiling yourself.

    Just unbelievable,,, Nebraska governor tells local officials they can't require face masks if they want federal coronavirus-relief funding,,.

    Washington, DC (CNN)Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has told local government officials that they won't get federal coronavirus relief funding if they require individuals to wear face masks in government buildings.

    Ricketts, a Republican, made the statement on Monday, the same day he set as the deadline for county courthouses and offices to be opened while encouraging but not requiring the use of face masks.
    Nebraska has allocated $100 million for reimbursements to local governments for direct expenses incurred in response to the Covid-19 emergency.
    "It's really their option, if they don't want to follow the guidelines, they won't be eligible for the CARES Act money but that's certainly their prerogative to do that," said Ricketts on Monday at his daily coronavirus briefing.
    In late May, Ricketts issued guidance for how the state's 93 courthouses and offices would reopen that included specific directions that "customers may be encouraged to wear face coverings, but may not be refused service for failure to do so."
    The May guidelines however did allow counties to require social distancing and disinfecting procedures.
    A study out last week found that wearing a mask is the most effective way to stop person-to-person spread of the virus which is mainly via airborne transmission, according to the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
    Larry Dix, Executive Director of the Nebraska Association of County Officials, told CNN that when the guidance was handed down it was immediately met with pushback especially as counties have been impacted at varying levels by the pandemic.
    "We had questioned it especially because some of our counties had a significant occurrence in positive tests of Covid-19," Dix said. Dakota County, the location of a Tyson meatpacking plant, and Lancaster County have been some of the hardest hit, Dix noted.
    Dakota County's meat processing plant became the site of an outbreak back in May. At one point the cases from workers in the state's meat processing industry accounted for more than 25% of the total cases in Nebraska.
    As of Friday, for the last 14 days, Lancaster County has the second highest number of positive coronavirus tests at 289 and Dakota has the sixth highest at 44, according to state health department data.
    The guidance by Ricketts also comes at a time where the country is seeing higher rates of new coronavirus cases in many states. Nebraska State Department of Health and Human Services on June 12 announced an uptick of 30 deaths and an increase in cases by 1,320 from the week before.
    It is within the guidelines for individual county offices to close if any employee within that office has been exposed to or tested positive for the coronavirus.
    Dix also noted that local officials are motivated to comply with the governor's order because the reimbursement funds would then fall on taxpayers to make up if the counties don't get the federal relief funds.

    I agree. I hadn't heard that before. What possible logic was there that formulated that statement?

    Donald Trump says he wont "look presidential" if he wears a facemask, what he really needs to do is start acting Presidential if he wants to "look presidential",,.

    If your wondering where Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts got such a ridiculous idea from(that is to withhold fed funding to those counties that implemented face masks requirement rules), you don't have to look far, Ricketts appeared at the White House Thursday for a governors roundtable, where he praised President Trump's handling of the pandemic. "We really appreciate your efforts, your leadership and that of your team to be able to help us through this pandemic and give us the tools to be able to manage it," he told the president.

    California's governor has ruled that in 19 counties in the state will need to restrict businesses in a number of ways, including withdrawing the ability for restaurants to allow indoor dining, along with a number of other social distance restrictions, because of their high infection rates. Oddly, he has no objection to the mass protest marches scheduled for this weekend, he just asks the people marching, yelling and protesting to wear masks as they do so. We'll have to see how well that plea works out. Masks have not been in evidence much in previous protests, including with the mobs pulling down and defacing historical statues.

    Herman Cain treated for COVID-19 after attending Trump rally

    WASHINGTON (AP) — 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is being treated for the coronavirus at an Atlanta-area hospital, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account Thursday.

    It’s not clear when or where Cain was infected, but he was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He did not meet with Trump there, according to the campaign.

    Cain, 74, was hospitalized after developing “serious” symptoms but is “awake and alert,” according to the statement.

    I hear there is going to be a big Trump event in South Dakota tomorrow with lots of fireworks, social gathering and few masks to cover the happy faces. (News at 11) Meanwhile, the faces of the presidents carved in stone in the background will be looking down at their future, wondering what has happened to their country.

    I hear that Trump is going to fly out to South Dakota tomorrow to watch the fireworks, put in an appearance for the news media and then fly back to Washington. What a waste of taxpayer money. But I guess that is just one more example of Trump blowing though the Federal budget.

    In other news: When you run out of historical statues to deface and destroy in Portland, Oregon, go after an elk. What were they thinking?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMpA...ture=emb_title

    Which gives me an idea: Trump should spend some of the Beautiful Wall money to build statues of himself in all the major western and eastern cities for the residents to enjoy.

    Donald J. Trump is the personification of the American dream. He is a true patriot and successful businessman. Every day, he offers ordinary Americans hope to make America greater than ever before. In the political field, he has been doing things that have never been done before. He has single handedly reshaped American politics forever and political analysts will be studying Trump's campaign and presidency many years from now. It is our wish that Mr. Trump's face be put on Mount Rushmore.

    I took a short ride out to the beach today and at 10:30 am the beach was empty and Highway 1 was almost so. I had really expected heavy traffic heading south toward the coastal beaches and people running past the closed signs at the beach to surf or enjoy walking along the sand. But I was pleasantly surprised to see everyone behaving themselves. Of course it is still early and maybe things will pick up later this afternoon, but right now is looks good.

    However, as I am typing this there are about a hundred mid-1970s noisy "muscle cars" driving up my street with the windows open, honking their horns, no one wearing masks, American flags attached to their aerials and the occupants wearing red ball caps.

    I rode along the Pacific Ocean beaches today and just about everyone was behaving themselves. Very little traffic and relatively little parking around the closed beaches. Much less than on Memorial Day. So it does seem like people around here are getting the message - or were they just tired from staying up all night exploding fireworks in front of their homes? About the only problems that I heard about on the news today were that a lot of vegetation fires were started by out-of-control fireworks. There was even a 5-acre fire in San Francisco last night that was brought under control by the fire department. Who knew that San Francisco had 5 acres that hadn't been built on yet.

    Love the riding gear. Those riders have some real confidence about their riding skills and sheer luck. And apparently they are also impervious to UV rays.

    This is an elected offical,,,What an idiot, its no wonder that the US is in the trouble they are in,,,. Just unbelievable,,!!

    Quote; Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones "People are scared, peoples are asking if they need to wear the mask in the house, in our cars, its kindah ridiculous",,.

    The sheriff in Butler County, Ohio – just north of Cincinnati – said he was “not going to enforce any mask wearing” after Gov Mike DeWine announced a mask mandate on Tuesday, July 7, for counties that meet certain criteria.

    “I am not the mask police,” Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said at a press conference on Tuesday. “I am not going to enforce any mask wearing. That is not my responsibility. That is not my job. People should be able to make that choice themselves.”

    Beginning Wednesday at 6 pm, masks must be worn in any indoor location besides a residence and also worn outside when social distancing was not possible, according to the order. Local media reported that defying the order can result in a misdemeanor charge.

    The mandate affects counties that have “a very high risk of exposure and spread” of the coronavirus, labelled as a “Red Alert Level 3 Public Health Emergency” or higher. Seven counties, including Butler, were listed as level three.

    “It’s totally out of control. It should be left up to the individual if they want to wear a mask,” Jones said. “If someone’s sick, I can understand the mask wearing. But for all of us to have to have your temperature taken, to have to wear a mask, where’s it going to stop?”

    DeWine said the mandate will persist until a county drops to a level two alert.
