To not make Joe Biden sit in front of the Senate the way Brett Kavanaugh had to do makes Joe Biden GUILTY! It also makes #metoo a bias gang movement that has NOTHING to do with protecting women. Remember what Nancy Pelosi said? They take all accusations serious and all accusations have to be checked out. They did it to Trump too until one women came forward and admitted she lied, and the other was found guilty of lying.

^^Should we hold an election where only Tara Reade gets to vote?

She will cast her SuperVote for Trump.

Just ask her, "Why do you want Donald Trump re-elected?"

If you think Biden is a bigger "dog" then Trump, then you're as delusional as Trump.

Biden himself has called for a full investigation. Such a non-story. Never thought Bernie bros would align with far right Trumpsters and Russian bots but here we are. Note to Bernie bros, your guy lost and was not nominated, move on with life.

We are told to wear facemasks in public, but all that does is lower our exposure to not only COVID, but all other forms of viruses, germs and bacteria. This lack of exposure weakens our immune system because we don't build antibodies.

Wearing a facemask in unnatural, if we were intended to have filters, then we would have evolved to have them in front of our mouths, but that's not the case.

Masks are appropriate for high risk environments, like visiting a hospital with infected individuals but not appropriate for everyday use.
