      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      I think his very cogent analysis only underscores the fact that Trump never progressed, in any way, beyond fifth grade.

      … It’s not just because I live in an area where linguists hear “It needs fixed”, which is something particular to SW PA and parts of SE OH. It doesn’t seem that verbal reasoning is taught consistently. If you sound much different than the vernacular speech in rural America, it’s intimidating. Why is that?

      Verbal reasoning skills develop between ages 4 and 6…

      Verbal reasoning, along with other cognitive abilities, was once considered a fixed, inherited trait. However, as Social Theory founder Albert Bandura points out, this isn’t true. In fact, students who are told that ability manifests from hard work do considerably better on cognitive tasks than those who are told their abilities are fixed — in short, that they’re smart. Unfortunately, according to Stephen McConkey, author of “Learning Together,” verbal reasoning is not a skill typically taught directly in most school curricula. Students who don’t develop these skills on their own have a serious disadvantage and risk failure unless someone intervenes.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      … in the early twentieth century. It was first used to sell the magic elixir, the right cereal, and cigarettes. Mass marketing communications theory led to the art of propaganda to sell wars and other evil enterprises. Trump was just another expression of the big lie targeted at the masses.

      Contemporary democratic party messaging is no different still selling the big lie to justify one war after another, why we can’t have a public health system or a living minimum wage, why college education can’t be free and why we must have monopolies and exploitative policies controlled by a small elite of untaxed government subsidized billionaires.

      We don’t have to hear or listen to him any more. I wonder what all these Trump analysts are doing now? Trying to convince us that Biden just has a “stutter”?

        Looks like they are going after all the dumb shits who think how Trump expresses himself means “Vote for the BLUE”.  Biden talks like an addled old man and has trouble reading a script.  But to mention that means one is a Trump lover, and may be domestic terrorism some day soon.

        Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      MMM being read to and learning to read is so very important along with having actual discussions/talking, one on one, to our little children. Encouraging curiosity and acquiring the skills to find the answers to our and their questions. You don’t see that often in rural America. The educated are dismissed as eggheads. My own father did it. They value the Bible but not education. I don’t know how to change that because it can be devastating if a child is brought up to not think just do as their told.

      The DNC “big tent” excludes Nina Turner but includes John Kasich.
      God, guns, and gobbledygook...we live in an aquarium of nightmares.

      it’s that he gets everyone else to act like one, too: that’s why Hillary 1. asked Trump to run, 2. made him her “pied piper” during the primary, 3. hired a Russian front group to dig up dirt on him

      and if he ignored McConnell and forced through the stimulus he would’ve won in November, and we’d be getting an annual impeachment
