What about Columbus Day?
Well, Oct. 12 was/is Columbus Day and it is a national holiday. My curiosity is getting the best of me. I am wondering, how many of those people that wanted to try and erase history by removing all of the Christopher Columbus statues, yet decided to still take the day off from work and get paid for it?
Which is it, life or is it death?
How can anyone support both life and death simultaneously? We are about to find out. President Trump has nominated the U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett is on record as opposing both the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, and abortion. Her approval by the Republican-led Senate is expected to happen before Election Day, Nov. 3.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case regarding the Affordable Care Act on Nov. 10. There is currently no hearing scheduled for an abortion case that would restrict or strike down Roe v. Wade, but the Republicans have long made it clear that this is on their agenda.
The above schedules may change suddenly because of Trump’s COVID-19 infection and erratic behavior, along with widespread COVID-19 infections of the White House staff, Republican senators and Pentagon leadership.
On abortion, both sides hold strongly held views. Trump, his supporters and Barrett promote life. Fine. But they also support killing the Affordable Care Act. This means that approximately 20 million people will lose their health insurance.
Without health insurance, a certain number of people will become ill — say with COVID-19 — and die because they can’t afford the care they need.
So there we have it. Which is it: Life or is it death? How can one claim to embrace life in one situation, yet have complete disregard for it in another?

Trump is the American horror story
When Trump came out on that balcony and ripped off his mask, why didn’t he hold it up and say, “Your mask could save a life, please wear it.”?
But no, he is on his crusade toward reelection making false promises that the COVID-19 coronavirus is disappearing and saying not to worry, it’s a gift from God. Tell that to the hundreds of thousands whose families have been devastated by this illness. He is the American horror story.
The American patriot
You don’t have to run for office to be a patriot like U.S. Rep. Andy Kim, but it does show your love for this country. You don’t have to be a veteran like me to be a patriot, but it does show your willingness to serve.
What you do have to do — and what is a privilege — is you as the citizen get to decide who is guilty or innocent in a court of law. And you, the American patriot, get to decide who our leaders will be by exercising your right to vote. I hope you do that in this election.
Socialism would be a disaster
We must maintain our capitalistic society, the best in the world and the only way to be. We are completing four years with President Donald Trump and his plan for one nation which has been fully accomplished, and he must now serve four more years along with his fine children to maintain the status quo.
Socialism for us would be a disaster with Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders plus Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters and 100% of the deep state. We must have a vehicle to remove these people who are uncooperative, void of any common sense and who are not telling the truth.
The Benghazi event requires a full investigation. President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden must be held fully accountable for the disaster since all three had to be in on it. The ambassador who was given the assignment was known by all to be gay.
The Benghazi people were against gays and he should never have been sent there. All three signed off on it, they deliberately delayed the plane departure and all five on board were killed. These three now need to be held accountable for their murder.
I would also like to see the word “racism” removed from the English dictionary along with the four-letter “(expletive)”. We are all equal in stature regardless of our color, Black, white and a multitude of shades. Most importantly all lives must matter without any exceptions.
So-called ‘militias’ filled with cowardly losers
I feel the need to express my First Amendment rights. The so-called “militias” that have sprung up around the country are filled with cowardly losers.
They produce nothing positive. They threaten women and minorities — and anyone else they consider “different” — with hate and attempts to instill fear. They want to stir up a “civil” war which could destroy our country. They hide behind their weapons. May their guns rust in peace.
