Marion County FL Sheriff To Employees & The Public: No Masks & This Is no Longer A Debate Nor Is It Up To Discussion

The Sheriff's logic in saying "no masks" is nonsense.
Stacey Abrams: "The Sun Belt expansion (by Democrats) is what will drive the next 30 years of elections"

Donald Trump is giving workers a payroll tax holiday. It really does not mean much, but here is what it offers:
“Trump instructs the U.S. Treasury to halt collection of payroll taxes from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31 for workers who earn under less than $4,000 every two weeks (that’s people earning under about $104,000 a year).
The Washington D.C. game of political football over Coronavirus relief continues. A lot of talk but no proposals on resolving the problems facing the American people. Nancy Pelosi joined in on the game calling Trump's actions "unconstitutional slop" and "unconstitutionally absurd".

Bizarre statements continue to flow from Donald Trump’s mouth.
Donald Trump is in a race to normalcy. California is in the same race.
When Trump fails, it seems it is always somebody’s else’s fault. When somebody else does a good thing it seems Donald Trump tries to take the credit.
Trump’s Tulsa rally was a political failure. The crowd was much thinner than he expected. However, the low turn out was not Trump’s fault, at least according to Trump.
On the one hand, Donald Trump says he told his staff to stop the testing. On the other hand, he says he was saying “stop the testing” in jest, and that testing is really a two edge sword. Here is how Trump puts it:
