In the Oct. 29 board of contributors column “Trump vs. Biden: Comparing their records,” Rick Blatchford cites former Vice President Joe Biden’s law school rank (76 out of 85) as well as his two former unsuccessful attempts to gain the presidency. Mr. Blatchford also mentions the number of bills sponsored by Biden (533) and those passed (42). However, the column is sorely devoid of any figures associated with the Trump administration. In the interest of equal time, I present the following referenced information: 

  • 3,500: Number of lawsuits involving Donald Trump — (American Bar Association Journal, April 20, 2020)
  • 91 percent: Turnover of influential positions in the Trump Executive Branch — (Brookings Institute, Oct. 7, 2020)
  • 26: Number of women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct — (Business Insider, Sept. 17, 2020)
  • $750: Amount of  federal income tax Trump paid in 2017 — (New York Times, Sept. 17, 2020)
  • 545: Number of children separated from parents at the border under Trump policy — (NY Times, Oct. 21, 2020).
  • 227,045: Number of Americans dead due to COVID-19 pandemic — (CDC DataTracker,  Oct. 29, 2020)
  • 8,834,343: Number of COVID-19 infections in the U.S. (CDC DataTracker, Oct. 29, 2020).

It's easy to see that there is a difference in the numbers associated with each candidate. I’ll stick with the guy who can pick himself up in spite of the odds, not blaming others for his shortcomings, and keep on going — all with the maximum of decency. Of course, that would not be President Trump.

And now, on the eve of election day, Trump announces his intention to fire Dr. Fauci as soon as he is reelected.. Really??? First, Dr. Fauci does not work for Trump, so... he can't fire him... Just more Trump obfuscation and diversion tactics... He's wants to fire another man because of his, Trump's, own incompetence..... Alas, there are a few here that condone Trump's malfeasance...

No, but Alex Azar is his goon who will.

I'm neither on the left or the right, but I am an Independent Swing Voter. I can tell you this though, I hope Trump don't win, but I never liked Biden either, I'm not voting for the less of these two evils. We all have our own views and reasons for the way we vote. I do respect each of your opinions. My mother always told me not to talk about politics or religion and if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I was also taught that too much freedom is as bad as not having enough freedom, if you don't know how to handle it. Thank each and everyone of you for helping me to make my decision this election. Be nice and kind to each other and remember, lover your neighbor as you love yourself and be a solution to the problem and not the problem. Have a blessed day and VOTE!

matts853

Trump has perverted view of what it means to be an American patriot:

Former warrior, POW, and US Senator John McCain is not a patriot because he was captured by the enemy while fighting for our country...

BUT, a bunch of road-raging supporters, emboldened by the President’s grotesque and UN-American rhetoric and embattled by his refusal to lose with dignity and grace, menace a Biden bus and snarl traffic - and he tweets out that THEY are “patriots”.

People, this anti-American BS has gone on long enough. I really question the patriotism of any who supports him.

Per the Matrix - "i want to be rich, and someone important...like an actor" - that was the best sarcastic knock on celebrities ever!

Either you are doing a really good impression of a foreign intelligence agent trying to divide America or you have serious issues with a country that has differing viewpoints. This ad hominem screed is Exhibit A of why Trumpism must be destroyed at the ballot box. We need a strong Republican Party. Not one that offers nothing but division.

NewMarketParent

@Piedmontgardener

I agree that we need a strong Republican Party, but the few people that I see that write comments are not strong people. They are weak and never developed that part of the brain used for critical thinking. They have gorged on a diet of nationalism served by Dredge, Rush, Faux News, OANN and the like. They like their information spoon fed to them in easily repeatable talking points that they will go forth and repeat no matter how ridiculous they may sound to the outside world.

That’s funny Jerry, because Trump said he’ll leave if HE loses! Imagine that?

From multiple news sources (except Fox):

At a rally Friday [October 16] night, he floated the prospect of fleeing abroad. “Could you imagine if I lose?” he said. “I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.”

I don't know how many of you enjoyed the great drama that was Chernobyl on HBO, but one of the takeaways is that we all suffer when bad numbers and facts are suppressed. One thing you see this administration consistently do is either attempt to hide numbers and facts that are unflattering or just ignore them as if they don't exist. That is dangerous to everyone.

Numbers and facts such as the money from Russia, Ukraine, and China funneled through Hunter Biden and earmarked for "The Big Guy"? Facts corroborated by Hunter's business partner Bobulinski and documented on Bobulinski's cellphones and confirmed by some of the email recipients?

I don't think you need to bother with going all the way to ten, they only need to count to 2 and they have the right number of teeth to accomplish that. Unless you want to count the number in their back pocket, because then you might be able to get to 10.

PurplePickles aka L&M

You’re correct, I couldn’t get Stimpy past the number 2, he wasn’t able to grasp the concept of a number past the number of teeth he had. I guess it’s no use to try and learn him past eating orange crayons? Don’t worry I mash them up for him.

A group of Trump Supporters in their vehicles surround a Biden Campaign Bus in Texas, trying to force it off the road. A black Trump pickup truck hit a Biden Campaign workers car traveling with the bus. Caravans of Trump Supporters driving on New York and New Jersey Highways slow down and stop traffic on the roads. It’s called ANARCHY folks, Trump Supporters attacking American Families just trying to live their daily lives in troubled times. For SPORT?? I guess?? We are watching the DEATH OF DEMOCRACY perpetuated by....jerseygrl42’s favorite word....ANIMALS!! I can’t think of another word bad enough to describe the behavior of the Trump Obsessed.

Come on, man. Are you a lying dog faced pony soldier. Look. Here's the deal. The vehicles did not try to force the Biden bus off the road. Check snopes:

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/armed-trump-fans-biden-bus/

Where were you during the Summer of Love and the Burn Loot and Mayhem protests? Were you crying anarchy then?

What's your position on stores in cities already boarding up because they know if Trump wins the radical left anarchists will be Burning Looting and Murdering once again. They are not boarding up in case Trump loses, but in case Biden loses.

Google shutdownDC and see how the anarchists are preparing.

Peace through law and order. [ninja]

public-redux

bosco, The Snopes page you cite is silent on the question of attempting to force the bus off the road. Here, word for word, is the claim Snopes addressed: “ Armed supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump harassed a Biden-Harris campaign bus in Texas, leading to the cancellation of three campaign events and a news conference.”

Perhaps you linked to the wrong Snopes page?

olefool

Bosco: It's a b^^^ch when the truth slaps you in the face isn't it bosco. But you must be getting used to it by now....

public nope. That's the one. Snopes gave a pretty good description and nothing was mentioned about the bus being forced off the road. That's just something Fido dreamed up and will become a fact in his mind.

public-redux

bosco, Well, if that is the right Snopes page, then maybe it is a comprehension problem on your part. The claim Snopes investigated doesn’t mention the topic you are mentioning. Your argument is akin to to saying that Snopes disproved the claim that Babe Ruth threw more interceptions than any first baseman in history.

Trucks with Trump signs and flags surrounded a Biden campaign bus on a Texas highway on Friday and attempted to slow the vehicle down and run it off the road, the Biden campaign said on Saturday.

Several video clips posted on social media by both Biden and Trump supporters showed the trucks surrounding the bus. The trucks then tried to slow the bus down and run it off the road before staff called 911, according to the Biden campaign.

You had your last hurrah and the club is closing.

MRS M

Bosco, from your Snopes citation:

"Vehicles, mostly pickup trucks, flying flags in support of President Donald Trump were driving near a Biden-Harris campaign bus on a highway in Texas. A video showed that at least one truck moved in front of the bus, appearing to slow its speed. A Trump supporter also admitted on Facebook to "slamming" a white SUV that appeared to accompany the campaign bus."

Americans saw this intimidation tactic on the evening news. Biden campaign events were cancelled due to the harassment. The FBI is currenlty investigating whether any of those involved in the harassing vehicles were armed. The story is currently under development.

I'm curious as to why you would be defending this sort of harassment and attempting to minimize it?

JerryR

The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. Hmmm, none of left-o's mention the hoodlums in NYC that threw rocks at the cars of Trump supporters, threw paint on them, etc.?? Or the protesters in NYC who went coo-coo on the police. Or the ones that harassed a Jewish caravan for Trump? What's good for the goose is good for the gander!! Bunch of hypocrites!! Like the lady who wrote the letter above, we too can pick and choose from the long list of Bidenisms to show his ineptness - especially his sub-secret dealings through his son with the Ukrainians and the Chinese. Of course the lame steam media won't cover them because of their hypocritical bias. Cancel culture at it's best.

That bag of feelings, is that located somewhere in the groin area and is the doll bending over?

Surely they all think they were part of some Smokey and the Bandid re-make and were heroes...except that they weren't, and were endangering EVERYONE on the road. Every one of them that can be named should face reckless endangerment charges. They not only affected the bus, but everyone around them from families in cars to commercial vehicles slowing speeds down to 30MPH on an interstate highway. You can go take a flying leap if you think otherwise that this was just a fun and harmless event they did. It would have taken only one of these morons to kill someone by that sort of bush league act. You really have proven that nothing short of Trump and his loony followers would need to behave as bad as Ed Gein before you'd change your thoughts about him.

I can bet those who did the bus thing were watches of Smokey & The Bandit...they all being the romanticizing of Bandit and that scene where everyone blocked the road. Except this is a whole lot more serious, and with true ill will and reckless abandon.

Reader1954

how about the fact that Trump, a non politician is actually getting things done in spite of the sore losers that have tried to block him on everything.

Could be. Doesn’t matter to me. I never cared about guessing who was who. The funny thing about rikki’s prediction was that he said Biden would 5 states and DC. He named the states. The EC votes of those 6 jurisdictions did not sum to 137 so his EC total was only 534 or 535. Counting can be hard work.

They shut down reader comments a while ago and I’m not sure they ever brought it back. The commissioners over there detest being openly criticized. At meetings, you can barley criticize the color of their ties without being shut off. But they’re all about the constitution over there...

Rick lives in Mt. Airy if I recall. People who live there kinda have dual residency in FC and CC. Rick does also contribute to the Crazy in Carroll County Times. He gets a lot more love over there.
