    So true, yet it stuns me to witness the depravity of this caste of Republicans cowed so easily.

    November 2020 US Election

    How can anything be shocking about Donald Trump after all that's become known about the man just in the last few years ? What is very shocking is how the Republicans in power shamelessly genuflect in kissing the ring. There is a great lesson in human nature to be learned here.

    It's a numbers game now. Forget the posturing. Focus on getting your supporters to vote. Pretty simply, ain't it.

    President Donald Trump's United States of America

    From throwing paper towels and many other insults at the people of the island, he now abruptly says that billions will go for rebuilding the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico that the Democrats and Biden destroyed, sending jobs to China mainly.

    Toronto/Chicago comparisons

    Chicago has some great things to see and experience and so does Toronto. There are points of similarity and points of diversion in any comparison of cities of comparable size.

    President Donald Trump's United States of America

    Just more bloody, vacillating, nonsense from south of the border. The BS will continue as long as this regime controls the WH. I imagine we'll hear from the pundits soon enough as to the whys and wherefores of this latest embarrassing flip . Who makes 11th hour calls anyway ?

    There's a murky metaphor in there somewhere.
