Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

Except Mattis retired for the Army in 2013. So it’s nice that he finally got around to saying the right thing but I don’t give him many points for courage on this. James Norman Mattis (born September 8, 1950) is a retired United States Marine Corps general and former government official who served ...

Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

Mattis’s dissatisfaction with Trump was no secret inside the Pentagon. But after his resignation, he argued publicly—and to great criticism—that it would be inappropriate and counterproductive for a former general, and a former Cabinet official, to criticize a sitting president. Doing so, he said, ...

She's playing and eating, it's the infected lip thingy that worries us. Doc has her on meds and there's no reason to believe she won't be around. If you have access to Facebook, here's a video of her playing 12 hours after the trip to the vet's office: https://www.facebook.com/john.m.thomas3/posts/1...

Re: Trump Coronavirus Timeline

There's a PDF running around with all of them. With the proper leadership, we'd be coming out of "lock down" about now rather than actually needing a lock down now.

The lack of morals, the sacrifice of humans to profit, is intensely obscene.

I buy stuff locally that he can't get and take it to the local UPS shipping point. 3 days is as long as it takes to get from Raleigh to 200 miles southeast from St Louis. Amazon says 3 weeks. The latter is not useful.
