LaBoyteaux 2020–Bounties on U.S. Troops

Words escape me to adequately express both sorrow and anger at the depravity, corruption and indifference of President Trump who continued to “make nice” with Putin while the Russians placed bounties on the killing of U.S. and British troops in Afganistan.  I don’t believe for a second that he was not briefed about this.  What the hell has Putin got on President Trump that he, Trump, won’t act to protect American lives?  The worst answer is that Putin has nothing, it is about continuing Russian help with his reelection, just like Trumps denial and mismanagement of Coronavirus is about his reelection.

And I heard the “white power” chant the first time I viewed that tweet.  Maybe I’ll get into the statues and monuments thing in a future post.  Trump is just using it to further divide us.  Right now I am sick to my stomach about his failure to call out Putin about these bounties and take some decisive action to force Russia to stand down.

LaBoyteaux 2020–My Fellow Americans

My fellow Americans, I am calling on you today to urge and request that you not let down your guard about the Coronavirus.  Please do not be distracted by the political shenanigans around this issue.  The virus is still out there.  It is still killing people.  If the danger seems remote to you, remember that yesterday our nation recorded the  highest number of new cases since the pandemic began.  This is not the flu.  It is a contagious and dangerous disease which can be spread by people with no apparent symptoms.  Please maintain social distancing while at work and in all public places.  Masks are effective in limiting the spread of this disease.  I wear one whenever I go out, take care of yourself and be considerate of others.  Please wear a mask.
