Yeah, uh huh. Except that not a single incident of voter fraud or counting has been reported.
It's all bluster to divide Americans with fear and deceit.

Amazing. A dozen down votes and not a single idea of what to do with the water.
What would you do?

I lived 90 miles from the plant in Ibaraki and there was significant radioactivity where I lived from the wind pattern the day of the meltdown. I remember thinking that when they start trying to drop water from helicopters, we're screwed.
Anyway . . . I know how wrong it seems to release this contaminated water.
I sure would be different if someone here offered up a different plan of how to deal with the incredible volume of water required every day instead of just complain.

Well, the fix is in.
There are still almost half of the mail-in and absentee ballots requested by voters are still floating around.
The Post Office (run by Trump's lap dog Louie DeJoy) has slowed things to a crawl so they ballots may not be received in time.
A federal judge ordered DeJoy today to reverse the slow-down tactics immediately, even though DeJoy promised weeks ago to do so when previously ordered to do so.
Was he promised a pardon if Trump's get's re-elected?

What the hell is Trump talking about, a "super recovery?" What incredible nonsense.
It's interesting to compare economies under Obama vs Trump. Even without the Trump CoviDepression, Obama's administration took over during the great recession and had better metrics than Trump. The last two years of the Obama administration were great economic years compared to the first 3 years of Trump.
No manufacturing jobs were added, contrary to Trump's lies.
No automobile factories were added, contrary to Trump's lies.
The unemployment was an extension of the Obama administration stats.
Turns out that Trump inherited the economy of Obama and did nothing to enhance it at all, contrary to the lies.
The economy under Trump was simply a straight extension from the Obama economy. The Dow was up higher, but the stock market is not a reflection of the economy. It's now a world unto its own.
He's just a man running out of time
According to Forbes magazine, he's over $1 billion in debt and not ~$400 million he said. Everything he says is a lie.
He owes money to the Bank of China and Deutsche Bank.
Some of the debt is still hidden and he won't say who it is owed to.
Here's the link: https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexander/2020/10/16/donald-trump-has-at-least-1-billion-in-debt-more-than-twice-the-amount-he-suggested/#c7802cd43306

Some of you still don't get it. Chinese companies did not build cheap plastic crap on spec, ship it to LA and hope someone bought it.
American companies like Walmart went to China, abandoned US manufacturing to get product for 90% cost reduction and continued to sell in America at the same retail price, reaping huge profits for decades.
If some other mythical rich country came to US to build something, US companies would do it willingly.
US government policies? You're kidding, right? You're just too wrapped into the myth. It was and is nothing but American greed and now laziness. You walk into any graduate level STEM classroom and there isn't an American in sight.
The truth stings a little, but man up to it. American companies and consumers build the China of today and continue to do it. No one is bringing any manufacturing back to the US.

The unemployment rate has nothing to do with people who don't have a job. It's a specific measure for political purposes that is meaningless. It doesn't count anyone who has been out of work for more the 4 weeks.
Total US workforce: 164 million
Total unemployed is 31 million

American companies sent manufacturing to China and other countries to reduce their costs by 90% and are responsible for abandoning American workers. "Clinton" didn't do it.

Trump has failed to deliver at all levels.
The perfect example is the Foxconn scam Trump and the governor of Wisconsin pulled on Americans. Billions of dollars in tax credits and fanfare/photo ops of groundbreaking ceremonies about Foxconn building factories, "innovation" centers and jobs, jobs, jobs for 13,000 Americans.
It never happened. Well, Foxconn was able to stroke Trumps ego to avoid tariffs and tweets from Trump. It's easy to manipulate a childlike, narcissist president.
Border walls? Yeah, right.
The S&P 500 has always performed better under every Democratic administration.
The deficit has been reduced by every Democratic administration since 1933 and exploded under every Republican administration, including Trump.
Trump has been wrong about every single thing.
The only thing he has delivered is division, pitting Americans against each other, a pathetic response to a pandemic and dragged the US into a swamp of corruption and hypocrisy.

This analysis is flawed. Japanese carmakers have too many factories and parts suppliers in the US that employ too many people to warrant Japan being pushed like that. Jobs are the most important service or product politicians want.
Trump has failed completely to deliver manufacturing back to the US.

It is polite in the US not to discuss either religion or politics.
It is polite to remind people of that fact too and they will change the subject immediately without any offense taken. This is part of American culture.
It used to be that way, but certainly not now.

Let's add some numbers and facts into the discussion because numbers and facts don't lie.
Make your decisions based on historical facts, not wishful thinking or ignorance.
Between 1968 – 1978 and 2000 – 2009, both periods under Republican presidents, the S&P 500 didn’t go anywhere.
The S&P 500 has advanced higher under every Democratic president since 1933.
Reagan (Republican) increased the deficit from $70 billion to $175 billion.
Bush 41 (Republican) increased it again to $300 billion.
Clinton (Democrat) not only reduced it to zero, actually had a $128 billion surplus.
Bush 43 (Republican) took it from a surplus to $1.2 trillion.
Obama (Democrat) halved that deficit to $600 billion.
Trump (Republican) got it back to a trillion.

The article does not give a single example of how trade sanctions on China helped US businesses.
The Wall Street Journal had an extensive article yesterday that the trade war has not added any jobs in America and there has been no increase in American manufacturing.
And the trade deficit has gone higher.
People and politicians who believed and believe Trump have been duped by a con man political animal who is wrong about every single thing. Everything.
American companies pay the tariffs to import Chinese goods and American consumers pay higher prices after that. Anyone who doesn't understand that shouldn't be allowed to vote.
It's cheaper for retail companies to pay the tariffs than build a factory to build a product. That's why American companies abandoned American workers and went to China to have them build products at for 90% less.
