If it’s Friday, it feels like every other day of the week in this nation of chaos and bizarro actions from state and national so-called leaders. We have the White House telling us that we shouldn’t look at science, or the CDC, to determine whether or not to send our children back to school. We should just do it and ignore their recommendations. Yeah, right. And in the annals of pathetic suck-ups to Trump, Georgia’s governor now joins Florida’s governor in not just putting lives at risk by not mandating state mask orders, but he’s actually suing Atlanta’s mayor for doing it. On morning news talk shows, the Atlanta mayor feels it’s payback, directed by the White House, because she called out Trump on his visit to Atlanta this week for not wearing a mask. In North Carolina, COVID-afflicted Latino patients are actually being sent home from hospitals. And just when we thought the news couldn’t get worse: Protesters in Portland, Oregon are ‘disappearing.’ Federal officers in camouflage, but no agency identification or badges, driving unmarked non-government rental cars, are grabbing protestors off streets in Portland and not talking with local authorities. A lot of headlines today to keep you informed, knowledgeable and smart about what’s really happening in our country and the world. As always, Go beyond the headlines…
