  • Love it when Jon Batiste pops in to open the show. I hope he finishes Kamala's theme soon. Can't believe Trump would really think any fraction of deaths among children is acceptable. No one who has ever lost a child would be willing to put another parent through that.

  • I live in Ames, Iowa! All schools are on line! Our county and city have tested the highest in the world! That’s bc the University re tested anyone with any systems. All states should be testing!!!! The US needs to know how bad off we are! No one should be dying from this!!!! At any age!!!! I have really stupid people on FB saying that they don’t need to wear a mask! I can’t believe their stupidity!!!! Our mayor just passed a law saying everyone has to wear a mask in public! But if caught without one, will not be be fined. I’m hoping that will change!!!! Why wont’t they wear one? Afraid their makeup might be messed up! Or they might not be seen to flirt? I just never realized people were that dumb!!!!

  • Get your ballot on time, complete it on time, sign your ballot, take a picture of your completed ballot and mail your ballot on time. If POTUS-45 cheats his way into another four years, it will then become a need for more years after 2024. Yes, DICTATOR!!! Biden-Harris are not perfect. However, they would not bankrupt our democracy and bury more of our citizens. Vote blue on November 3rd, 2020.

  • Less than one percent under 50 die of covid. More chance of being killed in a car wreck. People still go out and drive.

  • Americans cannot go back to work when their kids are at home. It was never a choice between health and the economy, once the pandemic took hold it was going to continue to crash the economy. Small and medium businesses in the US will not be able to ride out two or more years of a crashed economy, they will continue to go under. Scientist have not been able to cure the common cold which is a coronavirus so good luck with trying to make an effective vaccine to cure this pandemic which is also a coronavirus.

He flavors things like war with famine, some plague and a fraction of Death..and Voila Apocalypse a 'la Trump! A Souffle In Black and White. In what Trump misunderstood "melting pot of different races" to mean...

  • DNC paid Corporate shrills. WOW. Joe Biden wants to raise taxes & cut social security. What did Dems do while in office under Obama & Biden’s domestic & foreign policies? Manufacturing & jobs being sent to foreign countries. What did they do in 8 yrs? They certainly did NOT improve inter cities, homeless or drug & opioid crises, cut taxes or regulations, assist the poor & middle classes or great divide from the 1%. What exactly did they do to improve poverty, education (STEM implemented by Trump’s Admin, School of Choice which Dems want to stop.) Expanding 2 wars to 7 & setting the Middle East on Fire which caused a refugee, migrant, immigration crisis Globally. Racial tension, division, police & criminal reforms? Have they disavowed the rioting, destruction violence murdering of cops, women, men & children? No. They encourage it. Are they claiming the MLK, Jr. & Civil Rights ACT were failures? Affirmative action which is reverse racism? Opportunity Zones, First Step & Prison Reform by Trump Admin are nothing? He just ordered Fed Gov to go into over 600 poor & intercity locations. I like how a black 8 yr exPresident & Mich, these diverse brown & black Dem & Regressive Senators, Congressmen & woman, Gov officials, Celebrities, News Media personalities, Celebrities claim our System in broken. What have they done to improve the issues at hand? I don’t call kneeling during our National Anthem, walking off the field & refusing to play, encouraging endless violence, destruction protests & riots are productive or solution based. Defunding or abolishing the Police, DHS & ICE agendas are just dangerous idiocy. These officials, Dem & Progressive Mayors, Governors & Administration are violating their oaths of office to protect & defend their constituents, cities & States. Their gov overreach mandates & shutdowns have caused excessive damage to our Country. All need to be removed from sued, office & indicted. Insurrection & Marxism (BLM, Socialism, AntiFA) is terrorism & Communism. It is against everything America stands for in reality & ideological. What have they done with Covid19, Stimulus Relief for citizens, economy, jobs, businesses, other health matters & issues? Prevention of impacts of a multitude of collateral damage of their mandates & Chinese virus? 3.5 billion wanted to Post Office to fund mail ballots to benefit them? When Dr. Fauci & Dr. Birx said Americans can wear masks to vote in person. Frankly, it’s a transparent ploy to steal elections in 2020 & beyond. Vote to re-elect Trump & Republican in every local, State, Federal elections. Replace Dem & Regressive Mayors & Governorships too. 2020 & beyond RED VOTES in person.

  • After a long argument about the danger posed to the country by Democrats letting violent protesters burn down major American cities (rather surprising to me, a resident of a major American city with a Democratic mayor who is *not* currently on fire) with a fellow TRvisionr, he presented me with the statistic (unconfirmed) that 32 people have died as a result of this year's protests. 32. So, gimme a hand unpacking this, Republicans: 32 deaths in the entire country connected to the protests: And you absolutely lose your *shit* You scream apocalyptic forecasts to terrify middle America, you send government thugs into Portland, threaten to do the same to Chicago, and just today, mobilize 1000 National Guard troops in Massachusetts for *no* clear reason. 180,000+ Americans (all races, all ages, Democrats, Republicans, rich, poor) dead of Covid-19... ...and you what? Bully the CDC into revising testing recommendations for asymptomatic people, EVEN if they know they were exposed? Decide that "a tiny fraction" of dead kids is preferable to government aid for temporary distance learning programs? I really... *REALLY* hope that this November, voters look past parties and factions and all that bullshit... ...and truly ask themselves what kind of priorities they want to support.

  • I used watch movies and shows and of course many are about zombies, end of the world, end of the universe etc. Be the critic that I am I would always be like "That was stupid, no one would do that." Or "Any rational person would not do something that dumb. This plot is stupid, it relies on people being dumbasses." But now, after this presidency and the goons supporting it I now have to appologize to all those movies and show. People do exist, they are that stupid and they do work in high positions of government. Half our country will deny facts, science and just common reasonable thinking to our own deaths just to go against the opposite party or not admit they may be wrong. Yeesh!.

  • After nine months of the pandemic 0.3% of the World’s population has at some stage been reported as infected with covid-19. Assuming a recovery period of 14-days, on average at any given time over the last nine months 0.016% of the World’s population would have been actively infected. As a comparison this is a direct quote from the NIH “Estimates of the international prevalence of schizophrenia among non-institutionalized persons is 0.33% to 0.75%”. Schizophrenia alone is up to 46 times more prevalent than covid-19. The virus has been linked to 0.01036% of the population dying worldwide over this period, approximately 3000 people per day. This represents about 2% of the global daily death rate from all causes of death. As time goes on this percentage will diminish as the number of people dying each day from covid-19 will diminish but the global daily death rate will remain approximately the same.

  • what bs! Colbert talks about not losing any 'fraction' which i would remind him is how we analyze every risk from driving cars to cell phones. Worse yet, no one is really measuring--or at least talking about--whether the death rate has been materially affected by the shutdowns. They are too busy telling us how important it is--but not measuring to PROVE it is really reducing the death rate. And the clip Colbert played about New Zealand proves what a joke shutdowns are. New Zealand is the country (one of them) that was celebrated for beating the virus. Well,that was last week. Looks like (from the clip and the headlines) that as soon as (like a week after?) they lifted restrictions , spread resumes. Of course it does. That was in the fine print of the shutdown 'guarantee' that they sold everyone on! Buried on page 100 it says that "Note: shutdowns produce an effect only as long as they are maintained. Not a day longer". What bullshit. Fuck U for trying to force me and others to go along with this bullshit.U should be ASKING if I am willing to save lives,not demanding. Ask and the answer is NO: these lives are NOT worth this price. Mine sure is NOT.

I dont want to find out what he has in store. In other words, yes I agree with you: I have been driven insane by the shutdown and now have become a trump 'supporter' or at least a "Biden avoider". Not sure if my insanity will be permanent. Probably: look at what happens to people in solitary.
