established guidelines that actions

to questions should be limited to two

minutes: two were mediator Susan Page and candidate Kamala Harris, the other was a fly that arrived at Vice-President Mike Pence’s head. In fact, the fly broke the rules, too. He was on Pence’s hair for 2 minutes and three seconds. The fly has actually been the most interesting character in the 2020 campaign so far– and it was very black. I was smitten by the fly right away. Was it a message from some effective being in deep space? But it didn’t move. Did it drop dead? Was Pence using killer hair oil? It simply sat there, unlike any flies with which I have actually been acquainted. I remember how flies would attack me and frustrate cows on a chilly fall day while milking. I needed to duck swishing tails and powerful kickers and protect a container– while holding on to teats and brushing flies off my face and arms. Those barn flies never ever beinged in one location for more than 3 seconds. Then it pertained to me. I was seeing a pregnant fly lay eggs on Pence’s head! The common barn fly lays eggs looking like grains of rice, frequently in decaying things, manure, dead animals, and so on. The eggs then hatch in 24 hours, birthing scary white maggots

that take in waste and dead materials. Maggots devour for five days. Then they develop into flies and the entire process starts again. Why would a single fly be so occupied in laying eggs on Pence’s head? Would it be since there is little life there? Asking minds want to know. Pence certainly exhibited he was brain-dead by continuously interrupting Page and Harris, running method over his 2 minutes, and spouting Trump nonsense to an embarrassed country. He is definitely a queer duck. ‘T is said he never ever satisfies or has lunch with a lady if his spouse is not present– and he calls his spouse” Mom. “Is he scared of rape? Can’t he control his impulses? Why does he reveal such contempt for ladies? Even a pompous ass would shut up after hearing” Thank you, Mr. Vice President!”two times! Citizens need to know. Anyway, the fly looking for a great egg spot is the most scintillating political occasion up until now in a really boring campaign. An Apprentice Who Could Never Ever Graduate To Journeyman 4 years ago electors representing a minority of citizens cast their elect an apprentice president who had actually never served a day as a public servant. In fact, his opponent got 2.9 million more votes. An apprentice register for a specific time period to find out an ability, an art type, a trade, a service. Sadly, we elected a rich never-do-well incapable of finding out anything due to the fact that he is consumed

every 2nd by his conceited psychopathic self. He fits every criterion for both psychopath and sociopath noted in the Manual for Mental Deficiencies prepared by the American Psychiatric Association. In the brief span of four years, he has withdrawn the United States from being an ethical force in the world appreciated by most nations to one that invokes the most pity. He loves the killers leading North Korea, Russia, and Turkey and dislikes the leaders of Germany, Canada, and the Scandinavian nations. He has turned us into a banana country suffocating with rotten political bananas. However I digress. Among our Ohio-class nuclear submarines is equipped with 24 Spear II ballistic

rockets, each bring 8 nuclear warheads with each having the power of six Hiroshima bombs. And this psychopath can reach the nuclear button on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Workplace. The 25th Amendment must be utilized immediately to remove him far from the button. Pence, a minimum of, is probably waiting on the Christian Rapture. What Are The Important Issues In This Election? Ninety years ago we remained in the Great Anxiety. It was a period of 25 %joblessness. Desperate out of work employees were offering apples on the streets. Bankers were splattering themselves on Wall Street sidewalks. The homeless were living in countless Hoovervilles called after the president in charge. I remember checking out the time he authorized$100,000 to feed starving livestock– but refused to sign the same for feeding humans. With this COVID-19 pandemic

, we are currently in another Great Depression. Soon we will have millions

of residents living in “Trumpvillas”when they are evicted or foreclosed on. Here are a few of the real problems facing this country after 244 years of attempting to form a”more ideal union. “Earnings Inequality– In the first Gilded Age for the superrich the Vanderbilts built their 254-room mansion beyond Asheville, North Carolina together with a huge winery and cattle barns. John D. Rockefeller cheated and gunned his method to a fortune approximated at$ 700 billion in

today’s dollars with his Standard Oil monopoly. His breakfast prayer was constantly about money. In 1980 Ronald Reagan prepared for the 2nd Gilded Age by bringing his “Greed is Great”culture to Washington with tax cuts and the abolition of service policies. Prior to the pandemic, 80%of Americans were living paycheck-to-paycheck while 20%were dashing to thebank. Goldman-Sachs made a$3.62 billion profit in the third quarter while 30 million were getting tiny joblessness checks. The One Percent didn’t understand what to do with all their money so they decided to play the lotto on the Wall Street Casino for the adventure of making more. The richest One-Tenth of One Percent owns wealth equal to the Bottom 90 Percent. The 50 superrich increased their net worth by$339 billion in the eight months of the pandemic, equaling the cash and properties of the bottom 165 million. The bottom 165 million now hold just 1.9 %of all family wealth.

That indicates the top 50% of 165 million hold 98.1%of home wealth. It’s shocking to learn that the Top One Percent holds 30.4% of all household wealth. This is the 2nd Gilded Age. Anyone in his right mind knows this will not stand for long. When cravings, thirst, and anguish take over, the heads will begin to roll into baskets. The 1929 Great Depression struck male tasks hard. The 2020 Great Depression is female-dominated. Women have been laid off at much greater rates than guys. Ladies hold more low-wage tasks. In September alone 865,000 females dropped out of the workforce. Females have two-thirds of the minimum wage tasks. Women carry two-thirds of all trainee debt. Over 25 %of white female-headed households are residing in poverty; Black and Latino woman-headed households are at 30 %hardship. Black women make 62 cents for every dollar made by White guys. This, by far, is the greatest political concern in 2020. Healthcare– I have actually invested 55 years studying our healthcare “system “– 28 years on groups working out incomes, benefits and other problems for over a thousand employees, and 27 years composing columns on the 2nd biggest issue in the 2020 election. At this moment, whatever the “system “is, it is supplying the best care on the planet for the Top Twenty Percent in the United States and the worst care in the developed world for the Bottom 80 Percent. The battle in between medical” do no damage”and business greed has actually reached profane levels. Here are a couple of examples amongst millions of obscenities: 1. Dr. Zachary Sussman of Austin, Texas went to his hospital’s emergency clinic for a$175 COVID-19 test, just to be sure. He thought it would be complimentary because he was a worker of that healthcare facility chain

. He got a costs for$10,984 for the test– which his insurance provider paid! The emergency room was”out-of-network.”Greed won once again. 2. A 60-year-old COVID-19 patient in critical care was transferred by helicopter from one Philadelphia medical facility to one 20 miles away since it had better suited devices. She endured after a six-week stay. She got a bill for $52,112 simply for the flight. That air ambulance service, owned by a private-equity firm in the business to make a great deal of cash, did not have an agreement with her insurance provider, so it declined to pay the bill. The ambulance service is now being sued multiple times for such

billing practices. 3. A survey by Kaiser Household Structure has figured out the typical medical insurance household premium has actually increased 4% to$21,342 for 2020. Twenty years ago the typical family premium was $5,791. Considering that 2010 the household premium has gone up 55%while earnings have increased 27%(or virtually zero for the bottom 80 %)and inflation at 11 %.

Americans pay usually twice as much as individuals in civilized countries with universal coverage pay. Why do Americans pay 10 times more than a Canadian or Mexican for vials of insulin? Why did my last hip replacement cost about $60,000 when I could have gotten one in Thailand or India in a top-notch healthcare facility for $6,000 plus airline tickets– plus a week’s getaway? COVID-19 has made it really plain. The only solution is to go to a single-payer universal care strategy run by a federal government which sets rates. Let’s re-train all those insurance company CEOs and workers

to in fact supply healthcare to clients rather of trying to screw them out of it. UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest insurance company with 320,000 employees, made$3.17 billion in earnings in the third quarter off the sick and passing away. Why do not we put white coats and nurse uniforms on those staff members so they actually treat clients rather of shuffling rejections? Freedom Of Religion(And Flexibility From It)– Over my years, when religion ever entered my mind, Hamlet’s opening lines in a soliloquy followed my thought:” To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether’t is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take up arms versus a sea of difficulties and by opposing end them.”He later on says we dread what happens after death due to the fact that no traveler has actually returned from Paradise or Hell to describe the environments. On civil liberty: I’m not versus the Christian Tennessee Snake-Handlers covering rattlesnakes and cottonmouths around their necks while dancing to hymns and speaking in Pentacostal tongues, just don’t try to wrap a snake around my neck and attempt to convert me. We have actually come a long method from when some people believed clocks and watches were so incredibly made complex that only God could have made them. We are now so controlled by science and innovation, the decrease of religious commitment around the world has actually been foreseeable. Faiths have excessive of the ignorant medieval in them. The truth that white evangelical Christians have decimated the Christian faith by voting for an unethical narcissistic psychopath since he guaranteed them pro-life and anti-homosexuality judges simply knocks one’s socks off. The evangelicals and conservative Roman Catholics lost the LBGTQ+”intrinsically disordered” and gender argument in a historical blink of an eye. In 2020, 1,006 homosexuals ran for office in primaries. The November 3 tallies have the names of 574 honestly LGGTQ+prospects put there by voters. Another example of universal acceptance of the LBGTQ+community: Trevor Meyer, a senior at Clovis High School in California was chosen Homecoming Queen by his schoolmates. Trevor is “gender neutral “: often he seems like a woman, often like a boy. Previously, as a junior, he had actually been chosen to run for Homecoming King. He beat 3 girls for the crown this year. He has manly and feminine clothing. For his half-time crowning as queen he wore six-inch heels and a sleeveless gown– and stood beside King Kenneth Lim. They both got loud cheers from the crowd in a conservative town. Time no longer marches on. It dashes on.Source: hpr1.com
