    Yesterday I was forced to endure mandatory annual sensitivity training by my employer and by golly, trot those comments out in that arena and the correct answer to the multiple guess test question would be 'yes that is a threat".
    Head over to your appointed grief captain or supervisor or whoever to report it, cry a little and maybe have a hug.

    Considering her employer I'd call that a desire to engage in workplace discrimination. Almost sounds violent.

    Thankfully, I never had to sit through any of that. Like most company meetings, they are a complete waste of time.

    Trump Admits He’s Blocking Funding for the Postal Service in Order to Stop Mail-In Voting


    Millions of people are relying on the post office {USPS} to receive medicine, food, and other essential supplies
    - Donald Trump does not care - He cares only about Donad Trump - And Donald Trump can not accept his failure to leed the country in times of crisis.

    Unless Trump wins in November he will claim fraud and attempt to overturn the election
    - This attempt to block mail in voting is part of his strategy to rig the election through voter suppression.

    I don't like many of the Liberals of today and oppose some their ideas.

    But as things stand now, and in my opinion, the single greatest threat America faces today
    is Donald Trump.

    Back in 2016, when I didn't know better and I used to blog for Trump I used to quote this quote
    usually attributed to Abe Lincoln. I'll quote it again as now I do know better and I think America is
    waking up to the truth about Trump!

    “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
    ― Abraham Lincoln

    Millions rely on UPS and FedEX more so than the USPS for medicines, essential supplies, and food...I do not agree with mail in voting, it should not be that way, the walk in voting centers can be set up to keep social distancing and cleanliness from the virus the same way stores are now that people frequent...We are going on have massive fraud if we allow mail now voting across the country...

    President Donald Trump is helping middle-class Americans

    Donald Trump did an enormous favor for middle-class America last week. Thanks to his executive action to suspend payroll taxes, every wage and salaried worker in America with an annual income of less than $100,000 — including those who earn the minimum wage — will soon see a 6.2% raise in their paycheck from now until the end of the year.

    Liberals are hypocritically complaining. Eight years ago when Barack Obama and Joe Biden enacted a payroll tax cut, they (and Nancy Pelosi) praised this policy as the best way to give a “boost” to workers during tough times. Now that Trump is implementing the tax cut, they say that it is “a war on Social Security” and that it is “not (a) real solution.”


    This is called a double standard.

    A payroll tax cut is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to stimulate the economy. There are no administrative costs to distribute the money. The dollars go straight to workers and will be spent in the towns in cities across the country on Main Street USA.

    Trump has the unquestioned legal authority during a time of emergency to postpone payment of this tax until the end of the year. He has told Americans that if reelected, that tax will be forgiven so workers keep the money.

    What about Joe Biden? Will he force a big middle-class tax hike next year?

    Trump’s other executive actions are designed to relieve financial stress on middle-class Americans. These include expanded unemployed benefits, restrictions on evictions from homes, and student loan repayment relief.

    The courts will decide whether these orders are constitutional, but, ironically, each of these are policies that the Democrats favor.

    The good news is that even while the two parties continue to squabble during this election season, Trump’s payroll tax cut is wisely getting money to workers who need the help right now.

    It was a series of videos. Now there's corporatethink for you.

    Require employees to 'self screen' and use an app to say 'nope, don't got the virus or even think I do' each day before reporting in to work.

    And then require 130+ employees to cycle through the same 3 PCs to take the exact same corporate policy training video as last year. Eeeeeew, even without coronavirus. People are generally disgusting creatures.

    I read that Hillary stands ready if called upon for a position in the Biden administration.

    Oh, good. Because that'll help.

    Based on her track record I'd say just about all problems are about to be solved.

    I expect next year not only will we be virus free but global warming will be reversed and all those murder hornets will be taken care of. Oh, and all that nasty crabgrass I have too.

    I can’t imagine there is a position that wouldn’t be beneath her in a Biden administration.

    I voted first time for Polish elections this year via Mail in Voting as I don't even reside there. It's a very reasonable option given individual circumstances.

    The fraud angle is another bs excuse to suppress voting. Second, the idea that's it wouldn't be safer given the current epidemic conditions - disingenuous as best, defies logic.

    I already wrote in Gabbard earlier and not voting in Nov. Both these two are unfit. But I guess I would have to, if I lived in any the handful of "battleground states" where the election is decided.

    Sabotaging the USPO by Trump and keeping Americans hostage holding up minimal emergency funds, blaming Dems so he could "win" and personal gain, classic Don the Con. Don't even get me started with his bullsh*t theories along with Q exploitation of children trafficking. He's a "Great Embarrassment" and not a "Great American".

    I don't know anything about this Q guy or the theories or claims of this group or individual or whatever the hell it is... I just know it doesn't mean anything to me, I'm not a political minded person I could really care less about politics... I don't really give a damn what Trump says either, I don't follow the political atmosphere but for now my own views and opines however I do know our mail system is all screwed up and wide open for the possibility of fraud...Anything important that I need to receive in the mail I do not use the US. Postal Service, I will use UPS or FedEx, a more trusted service...

    You don't have to believe me though which I'm sure many don't, people in political arenas do not have tolerance for anybody except for their own type thinking these days, this country is more politically divided than ever before and yes people blame Trump for that too, he does seem to be to catch all these days however all the presidents we've had in my lifetime have been liars and deceivers, Obama is no different, Trump is no different, Biden's no different, they're all pieces of shyte if you want to ask me...This is by far the worst election we've ever had coming up with the worst choices we've ever had and hardly could be compared to an election in Poland where the political atmosphere and people are completely different, probably a bit more sensible then in the US...
