Guys I wouldn't be shocked. I've said it before, you can come here and read a few threads and really get a feel for how many---not a few but MANY--posters here really feel about our country as a whole.  It's rather sad to see so many Americans have such disgust for the country I love.   I don't want to be Japan or Finland, or South Korea --I like the US.

Understanding how poorly we are doing with Covid and wanting better means you love the country, no?

Not just that.  Generally most people on this board seem to have disdain for many many may things here. LOTS of complaining.  Makes me wonder why you're still here

When you compare the US to some of the larger countries (50M+ population) we're doing so much more testing per capita than every country except Russia and the UK.  We're at 122,500 tests per million.  South Korea is at 27,000 per million (I singled them out because people say how great they're doing).  If we did the amount of testing per capita that South Korea did, based on our infection rates and death rates we'd be at 1,000,000 cases and 42,000 deaths.

Well I think you missed a post somewhere where I guess we aren't doing as well as Bahrain and Oman.  So we suck as a nation I guess.

South Korea is reporting like 20 cases a day and have been that way for months. .Even if they tested 100 times more and kept the same infection rate that current testing levels show it makes our situation look crazy - we are in the 50-60k range.

There’s no way to look at that and say we aren’t sucking at something here.

Isn’t the majority of the  politics forum mostly disdain/complaint about Trump. He created a Forum :lol:

When he loses this will all flip to complaining about Biden and Congress.

I think there will be a lot less traffic as Trump is unique in that he actively trolls as a strategy as opposed to most politicians who just piss people off by doing things they disagree with or being a dope.

More so I doubt the other side is the type to complain at the clip we’ve witnessed here over the last 4. Someone will need to keep the stat on that.

Perhaps. Obama seemed to have a lot of complaints IIRC.

You have to admit Trump does provide alot of material. Some by design.

Biden isn't going to be rage tweeting for instance.

You need to let go of this narrative. You can love your country and still criticize the way they do things or the way they handle the situation. It is actually part of our freedoms. Plus no one wants to read you bringing it up in every post every single day, in my opinion.

Yeah. I love my Country but I'm disappointed now like I get with my teenager sometimes. I tell her action and inaction both have consequences and that short term thinking is usually short sighted.

President Obama Has Now Granted More Commutations than Any President in this Nation’s History
"While the mercy the President has shown his 1,597 clemency recipients is remarkable....President Obama‚Äôs 1,385 commutation grants ‚Äď which includes 504 life sentences ‚Äď is also more than the total number of commutations issued by the past 12 presidents combined. And with today‚Äôs 64 pardons, the President has now granted a total of 212 pardons."

But I'm glad that someone is keeping count. :coffee:

It's just a shame that we wasted the efforts of an entire platoon and a CNN team while arresting him.

Nothing "swamp move" about that!

Was it...the treasonous Russian Witch Hunt, fabricated by the Democrats in order to unseat a duly elected president?

Donald Trump. That was kind of my point. And he was convicted of much more than obstructing an official proceeding.

Are you not going to answer the question?

Really...."obstructing an official proceeding" is a round-up of what his case.

You want to see the list....Wikipedia.

Roger Stone...a dangerous man who belongs behind bars!
His jail time was commuted....he wasn't pardoned.

Would you feel better if the rule of law applied to everyone?

Stone is Trump's 36th pardon/commutation, a record low number, by far, for the modern presidency. An unusually high number of these (31/36 by my count), like Stone's, were based on a personal or political connection. Both are forms of abuse of an undoubted presidential power.

More good new guys! Line this up with Durham time in the fall.

Quote

Four years ago, Michael Flynn, an intelligence officer with a three-decade military career, became a MAGA star introducing Donald Trump at raucous campaign rallies.

Now, after a prolonged battle against what Trump’s biggest supporters see as a rigged judicial system staffed by Obama-era bureaucrats, Flynn’s status as a deep state-fighting warrior has only grown. And with Flynn on the verge of potentially having criminal charges dismissed altogether, Trump allies are pushing the campaign to give Flynn the ultimate comeback: hitting the campaign trail for the president, according to nine people inside or close to the Trump campaign.

More good news. :thumbup:

Quote

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz's request for disaster aid to rebuild and repair buildings that were damaged in the aftermath of George Floyd's death.

On July 2, Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a "major disaster" in Minnesota in response to the destruction of public infrastructure that was damaged by fires. Teddy Tschann, a spokesman for the governor's office, confirmed to KSTP the federal government denied his request for support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, adding that Walz was "disappointed."

"As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through," Tschann said in a statement.

A preliminary assessment estimated $15 million in damage directly related to fires, the governor wrote in his request for financial assistance.

According to Walz's office, looting, fires and vandalism damaged nearly 1,500 businesses in the Twin Cities, and the total damages exceeded $500 million.
