Kim doesn't think Masks are effective..hahaha what a joke. I had no idea she is both a journalist and a doctor. Masks and distancing reduces the spread and allows economy to stay open. Excuses Excuses.

They have a fundamental misunderstanding of what the Postal Service is. It is not a business. The USPS is a constitutionally mandated service that the Federal government provides to citizens. For a mere 8 billion a year taxpayer subsidy the USPS adds over a trillion in GDP. They generate taxes 10 fold larger than what we put in. It was genius for the Founding Fathers to see how critical it would be to provide affordable mail service to citizens and a testament to its recent management that it is such a boon to taxpayers. The USPS didn't cost us $2.2 billion last quarter they generated about 18 billion while providing delivery of medication to home bound elderly people during a national emergency. The cost of a defunded post office to local commerce would be huge. Think of the menu from a local restaurant sent to a neighborhood, or a free magazine with local stories with ads for local businesses. The cost to free speech would be even larger. Without the Postal Service every remaining print magazine would go out of business. The publication rate, delivered to any US address, is about $0.80, delivery from a commercial service can be as much as $5 per issue, and varies from subscriber to subscriber. Few of these magazines could make it as online only publications. Say good bye to whatever small publication covers the hobby you care about.

Another episode mimicking Trump's talking points. Democratics want to keep the economy closed and keep kids out of schools. Studies in Israel and Georgia summer camps have shown the infectious rate in kids. Wouldn't it be great if we had a robust testing program lead by the Federal government or at least injecting kids with Lysol and UV light. I have kids in school and we are extremely concerned about bringing COVID-19 home its so easy to ignore CDC guidelines when it comes to teachers and kids health.

Love how the WSJ continue to just say It's only Trump's blustering about getting a substantial cut of the potential Tik Tok deal. Trump is nothing but bluster and when we see his taxes we will also see he is a tax cheat and worth well below his own inflated net worth.

No mention of Trump's 2 month delay on handling this outbreak. A pandemic has always been a known threat this administration looked the other way.

My favorite conspiracy theory podcast next to Hannity. I always assumed WSJ had higher standards but I was so wrong.

Another winner. We don't need to hear from others who heard Trump's call with Ukraine because Trump already told us his call was perfect😅😅😅😅 oh wait Rupert Murdoch owns the WSJ so.... I will believe Trump when I see his Taxes.

this was a good breakdown. the VAT tax proposal from Andrew Yang is better than Warren’s wealth tax. Also, Yang would fit the void that Pete and Amy and Biden cannot

love it, according to WSJ editors liberal California is causing wild fires while Trump and his cronies corrupting our country is no big deal. WSJ is continuing to undersell this crooked administration.

Wall Street Journal editorial board... do nothing about gun violence cause it's a slippery slope to taking them all away.. they never mention the victims rights to life or the military style weapons. Get some guts WSJ or continue to be part of the problem and not the solution

"You can't underestimate the impact." Means: no matter how little important you think it is, it is even LESS important than that. Opposite of meaning intended. Ignorance.

"Some of them could have went to" says the graduate. Proof of the worthlessness of modern college education in the white trash Republic.
