There’s good news and bad news. As the USA keeps crying uncle, Mother 🌏 Earth has not spun off its axis yet and American democracy will not come crashing down, at least not until Election Day. Meanwhile, The US has reportedly reached 8 million #Covid-19 cases, and the pace of new infections signals a tough winter, while POTUS says no masks are necessary.

Florida Cracker Wisdom

Florida Crackers are American pioneers, their family members, and all their descendants who live in what is now the Sunshine State.

The first wave of these settlers arrived in 1763 after Spain traded Florida to Great Britain following the latter's victory over France in the Seven Years' War.

The main reason why Florida is so important in the election is because of its swing-state status. In the election, Florida is worth a total of 29 electoral votes, more than any other traditional swing state.

Madam and mister American newspaper publishers, temporarily tear down your paywalls until Election Day. Do it for our Democracy.

Traditional newspapers were supposed to die in a world of free digital content. Instead, many are thriving by gating content behind paywallsPaywalls can force users to pay for access, but also impact heavy users disproportionately and harm engagement. However, they can boost print subscription sales by 1-4 percent.

God is great and The Almighty seeks justice for the flock. We find his lies to be self-evident following Trump’s blasphemous comments.

On this last day of Hispanic Heritage Month during a contentious campaign following four horrific years in which each day grew worse, never forget and as we prepare to cast our ballots, we must remember that Donald Trump kicked off his presidential bid years ago with harsh words for Hispanics and Latinos who actually belong here in the USA because this is Our America.

DJT Herd Immunity

Have you heard about a POTUS preposterous plan of herd immunity? At the present rate of 50K infections per day in the USA today it translates to mass murders and it means that if we wait until a large number of people contract the #Coronavirus and hope they recover, millions will have died.

Ask yourself if your Governor is practicing heard immunity by allowing seniors and minorities to become infected and may die? All elected representatives should decry Trump’s coronavirus lack of a response, or to lay out a plan for international cooperation.

Regardless of my viewpoints, I was taught to respect anyone who shows personal or professional consideration, otherwise, sorry, excuse me, but I will continue celebrating my 39 birthday, again, and again. 

The following should interest folks who're into political science, public affairs, news, and history, which tends to repeat itself. 

A Special Day In Life

Got up at 3;33A cause I had to take a P, then went back to bed and slept for hours till I woke up, go out of bed and went directly to the head, while I scanned the news about POTUS failures the #GOP packing more courts and noticed it was raining ☔️ thanks to None other than Delta Lady. 

Then read a story, which was I thought was weird because it said the media would concentrate on accuracy not on expediency as far as Election Day was concerned. I wondered why it would be any other way each and every day.

As I approach yet another birthday and prepare to sing a sad song of a year of unnecessary hardships and COVID fear, my conclusion is that not everyone admits being attracted to sugar, spice, and everything nice. Some folks prefer wine, and sarcasm, in order to survive so it is suffice.
