Laughable. To paraphrase Mark Twain - don't allow your schooling interfere with your education. The issue is "what is the best method to continue our children's education without risking their health and the health of educators and school support staff." In other words, first, follow science and get a handle on the root causes of the Pandemic spread; then, and only then, develop an approach that supports our childrens' education that does not impose a risk to anyone's health. A blanket mandate to open schools during a Pandemic that claims 1,000 +/- lives per day is criminally reckless.

BS hyperpartisan podcast. The left over-exaggerated the darker everything is the fault of the left parts and the right ignored the part where he falsely equivocated left going overboard on pulling down statues with the entire left hates America. The only people that don't see that are those stuck in the far left and far right feedback loops. The truth is he celebrated America and American values that he doesnt live up to, while bashing 40% of America for the actions of the most radical of the left. Half of America was insulted and can't see the positives and half thinks their great and actually following the ideals of Liberty and has no idea why the speech pissed off the left and us independent types. He managed to be unifying and divisive at the same time. Talking about American values and Liberty is not the same as actually honoring the ideals. Liberty lies in how you treat the ideas you find most odious. Federalist needs to go back and read the Federalist papers, especially the parts about faction.

These guys REALLY hammer away at the whole "....... Trump wants to divide us!!" Even this guy, who comes across as A LOT more reasonable than most of his fellow travelers, said that during this interview/debate. They will have to get past several biases and prejudices before it will even be possible to start a dialog with them. Do you think they are even aware of that??
