Very nice. That was good. I agree with his anger, makes sense to me. The only caveat to his rant is that the scumbags in power in the senate DO have a plan, it's the "oilmen's plan"... keep the rich rich, screw the rest. And the POTUS also does have a plan, it's the kiss-the-ass-of-the-rich plan (especially, his own ass).

What Vick is describing is European-style socialist capitalism. Where you take care of the BASE of the pyramid, not just guild the top more and more until it crushes the whole thing ("Trickle-down" has always been total BS). When you take care of the base of the pyramid, then it is strong enough to support more and more crapolla at the top. The GOP has it backasswards, too bad Bernie is so old and all the other socialists are DNC Reps. It's long past time for the oilmen to step aside, they've ruined America too much already, and we're still letting then do even more damage.

Vick is also a big police and firefighter supporter. I don't believe he would like these Democrats that seem to hate law and order. He definitely calls out both sides for their stupidity.
He has many angry videos I definitely don't agree with all of them but sometimes he gets it right.

Sure, sure...

Too bad all DJT's biggest strong-holds are in deep-shit with Covid right now... he's lost many percentage points in former support. Even the doofuses in Texas and Florida, who were following DJT's denial insanity and having "Covid Parties", are now beginning to understand the idiocy of that idea, as they watch friends and family members die... that is, if they survive. Deaths are climbing past every other country in the world, while Trump argues against the experts and politicizes mask-wearing, and trivializes the idea of acting responsibly toward your "fellow man". DJT is on-track to destroy America, just like his Russian pals want.

He's now killing off the people who live by wishful-thinking... the ones who wish he was truthful and knew something, anything (you know, his base), and all the while he celebrates the statistic that Covid is killing more people of color than whites. He's obviously a very sick little man, an evil POS.

Thanks for the excuse to post more anti-Trump truth.

The dead vote Democratic, we know.

Imagine if the POTUS hadn't been hassled by that goofy attempt at an impeachment over, well, whichever made-up story they went with back when we could've kept the carrier Chinese from coming in to the country!

'The difference between me and you is I hate both sides I think they're both stupider than dogshit.'

I don't think we've seen the bottom of that by a long shot. When all these covid kids who lost out on a better education get to being the movers and shakers it will be even worse. Right when we likely will need the clear thinkers during the great war against China.

Anybody besides me notice the steady notching up of pressure over the South China Sea? And how about that move a couple days ago to recognize the Chinese ruan as being needed to move even with the dollar as the pre-eminent world class currency?

The next 10 years will see us over all or broken just like Jack. 3rd world status.

Trump is not going to like Texas, here in the D/FW metroplex we have just all gone to almost 100% online school openings.

Why? We all know the virus dies and goes away when it gets hot. Made up story?

Oh, I keep forgetting..........truth is not truth.........so.........??????

Still trying to figure out how one backs somebody who can't even make his statement match the one he made 5 minutes ago and now often in the same sentence. It points at mental deficiency.

Maybe people should just be quiet and drink their bleach.

My brother and I were homeschooled.
My wife has a large family and all of the kids are home-schooled except for one.

let's just say all the homeschooled kids are laughing right now because this isn't hurting them at all.
I'm not knocking public education but homeschooled kids are typically better at critical thinking skills. Homeschooled kids typically have better discipline.
Lots of us are adults now and would love a chance to be in a political position.

My brother and I are both very smart.
My brother not that I care about formal education much he is working on his third degree. His previous two he has had the highest grades in the entire class he didn't spend one day in the public school system.


Hope is not lost. Most home-schooled kids don't believe in this political correctness nonsense.

I'm of the mind that home schooling today will not follow the home schooling success of the past. Similar to public school doing the same.

Hoping I'm wrong of course, it would be welcome. Being a pessimist has its' perks.

Politics is not about winning or losing. It is about trying to do your best for the majority of people you represent. Since Trump is never wrong and never looses. He should stay far away from politics and just be an entertainer. His crazy ass way of thinking is sure as hell entertaining. it makes for great ratings... and that is all he is really worried about anyway. If you think the guy gives a shit about how many Americans have died do to Covid you are even crazier than him.

My son's girlfriend is a public school teacher, and she is very dedicated to enriching the her kid's minds and lives, but her class size is so big, she knows some of the kids who are less prepared to engage the studies, will be left behind. If she spend more time trying to elevate the slower-developing kids, then the 'faster' ones are less challenged and may become alienated, too many kids are on-their-own in big classes, and don't learn as much about everything as they could. The personal contact between parent and kid home-schooling is way better, and the closer scrutiny and customized pace far exceeds either public or private schools... even a brilliant tutor can't do as good a job as a smart and aware parent can. Too bad so many people must have two incomes to make ends meet, no one at home to home-school the kids.

The problem with public/private schools is class size, and public schools are worse, they have classes that are way too big, due to being so badly underfunded... people (mostly neo-cons and Tea Party goons) whine about taxes, and too many of them don't want to take responsibility for funding the things they use (roads, schools, sewers, other infrastructure), so their kids and all their neighbor's kids suffer, then all society suffers. In some public schools, due to huge class size, the kids are forced into a survival-of-the-fittest routine that ironically selects-out (fails) some of the brightest.

When the curriculum is set at 'average', targets the-middle, then both the smartest and the dumbest can fail... learning success for them will depend on their home life, just like home schooled kids, not the efforts of an overwhelmed teacher or the milk-toast curriculum. In too many underfunded public schools, the best that can be hoped for is that the kids will be 'socialized', and will have learned how to get along with their fellow man... the only important thing public/private schools have over home schooling is the kids have access to more friends, and may be exposed to more races/ethnicities, making them less suspicious of 'difference'.

My mom was a medical transcriptionist and worked from home and could work whatever hours she wanted.
Now she is a certified medical assistant because that industry went bust.

One of my sister-in-law's and her husband have one son and they pulled him out of the school system because the kid is brilliant. The teachers treated him like crap because he was just bored all the time, because he was so far ahead.

Honestly a few hours of quality time is really all you need if a kid has enough discipline to be self-directed. My talkin textbooks just as an example is phenomenal for math.

And I know a lot of people talk about the lack of interaction and that can be a problem if the parents aren't willing to fix that, but there are so many groups there's no excuse for why a kid can't interact with other kids.

A different sister-in-law and her husband have two children one boy one girl and they actually started a school program to help students who have difficulties with certain subjects.
I don't know exactly how it works but basically people pay for their children to attend it these are home-schooled kids I assume. They focus on what they are great at, and try to help them improve what they are terrible at.

Teachers are the true heroes. I really wish I could take the $25,000 pay cut and teach some good old fashion discipline and personnel pride to the youth of today. I'm too selfish to be so giving.

When Poor rural counties can't afford to get decent teachers...… we all end up paying the price. This is exactly how Trump wiggled his way into the white house. From all I have seen only a very small percentage of college educated folks buy into his fairy tale.. made up... fantasy world..... but the poor white kids who probably struggled to get a decent education need someone to blame for their failures. Here comes Trump playing his pied piper flute and telling them exactly what they want to hear. The immigrants are the problem.... No its the thug protestors..... No it is the left wing democrats who want to destroy their heritage...…. Fake news is crippling the country.

PB you are the man. I want you to know that I live my beliefs everyday. I grew up in a single wide trailer in North Florida. Let's just say they have plenty of Trump 2020 signs in that area. When i got out of the military I wanted to raise my kids in the most diverse environment that I could find. That lead me here to Atlanta. Here is a picture of my Son's 5th grade class. I hope I made the correct decision... but I want him to be a better man than myself. All I see is the diversity that makes this country the greatest on earth.

Just because someone doesn't go to a university doesn't make them a loser not at all. Anyone who works for a living is not a failure.
And in all honesty most of the people I know that are big supporters are very well off great incomes and very good lifestyles.

I have no issues with diversity hell I dated two different biracial girls when I was high school age.
I don't have issues with white people that lives in a trailer park and I don't think they're garbage.

We seriously need skilled trades in this country the craftsman is dying they just don't exist anymore. It is hard to find anyone to do any type of quality work like installing flooring, painting etc.
Keyword is quality work.

Just because someone votes conservative does not make them a bad person not at all.

Also I want to add something a great teacher can absolutely be a hero. A bad teacher can destroy a child's life and put permanent scars on them that will follow them till their death.

Just as there are great police officers and also terrible police officers the same goes for teachers they are all not wonderful people not even close. My dad and both of his parents were teachers my dad only did it for a little bit because he didn't agree with teacher unions. In his opinion some of the teachers abuse the system and get away with a lot.
That was from a man who went to school to become a teacher and both of his parents were teachers so that should say something.

I have always said the Southeast has more diversity your picture is proof of that.

I love that picture. The future of the world whether or not the white supremacists like it.

There is nothing wrong with being conservative or progressive if one keeps the extreme radicals out.

Trump IS a radical but not even from EITHER side. Why the right needs to wake up and realize the self-inflicted gunshot mistake and do the right thing. He is trying to turn the R's into something they can never be, just like the D's weren't when he came courting. Now he's trying to convince you you are not seeing what you are in terms of covid. He could care less about your kids while doing it. Hell he didn't even care about his own brother. Went to a movie instead of the funeral.

It comes down to do you believe what you see and hear or believe him? Noted this week for passing the official 20,000th lie threshold. Anybody remember any other person we have had to resort to counting the lies on?

Get that MF out.

I can't vote for Joe Biden I just can't.
I have to vote third party this year.
I believe they are both bad terrible choices and both will bring nothing good.

I will keep this pain in my stomach for four more years. I will focus on local politics this election.

y'all do what you believe is best but I just can't vote for that guy.

Tom I didn't have an issue with it I just had an issue with martial law.
We live in a world where a lot of people lose their mind very easily and I am concerned that martial law would have made the crazy do some very dangerous things.

I have zero issues if you locked down for two weeks. I would still have to go to work my work helps keep communities clean and sanitary, and with people being home it's more important than ever. I work in what is truly essential and it's work that can't be made up, but I don't have to interact with anybody at all. Trust me I would love to be stuck at home for two weeks just allow me to get some paint and some supplies before you do it, and I can actually get some stuff done at home. That would be awesome but I've been working more than ever.

I guess now we just wait till there's a vaccine.

How can you support a president that didn't do what you believed was best I don't understand that?

Stay safe. Hope you and your family are doing well. Maybe next year will be better.
