Prosecutors in the Roger Stone case recommend 7-9 years in prison for his three conviction cases. Trump tweets that it's "unfair". The Justice Department intervenes to reduce sentence recommendation. Now three assistant US attorneys have resigned over the gross overreach.

This is just straight up banana republic stuff. This is like stuff you'd see a dictator do in a Chuck Norris movie so that we knew their country was riddled with corruption.

Much like firing two staff members for being subpoenaed by congress, showing up, and then answering honestly.

I think it's funny that somehow Bernie Sanders being a "millionaire who owns multiple houses" is used as evidence of some sort of secretly being a plutocratic hypocrite when that statement is true of virtually everyone I know my parent's age who worked a steady job. My parents, a civil servant and a teacher, are "millionaires who own multiple homes" because they own a home in Downtown Toronto and my mom inherited a cabin.

Maybe he wasnít that crazy after all:  Trumpís foreign policy trumps conventional wisdom and why it may very well have been effective in a most unconventional ways:

I'm frightened and angry about the way the USA is handling the COVID-19 issue. Now Trump is putting Mike Pence in change of America's response and muzzling the professionals from speaking on the record about just so they can restrict the flow of information, spin it as minor and being under control, etc, all just because they don't want it to impact the stock market and Trump's re-election chances. People in the States are going to believe that bull#$#%, fail to take precautions, and will be far more likely to contract and pass on the virus, leading to much wider spread pandemic and unnecessary deaths. It sickens me.

If something trump does with respect to foreign policy happens to be effective, it is essentially a fluke and is not necessarily repeatable in the future.  The reason is that foreign policy actions are taken for their short term PR effect domestically rather than for any long term strategic international relations goal.

Honestly, it's just par for the course.  There should be every bit as much anger over the environmental deregulations, the housing deregulations, the attacks on social services, the stacking of the judicial branch with partisan judges with either no litigation experience or evidence of biased practice.  These are going to have a far greater impact on the loss of human life than even an out of control COVID-19.  We still have far more deaths from influenza than COVID (albeit mortality rate is lower for the flu) and people can't give a damn to vaccinate.

Not sure but I think the U.S was the first country to ban anyone from China arriving on mainland on January 31. Subsequently are barring other countries with high rates of infection. So they tried to close the door early than anyone else. Is Mike Pente the guy to lead the way? Who knows.  American Politics is a no win clusterf__k.  The right is so far right its out of site, the Left is so far left, as Bernie has said he is a Socialist.  Perhaps its time for new centrist party that can govern in a balanced way.  I have always said democracy's with over 300 Million people can't really be true democracy's.  Tends to work with smaller populations for some reason.

Ok my Coronavirus Tip;

There is no real way to close the barn-door on this pandemic.  Up to 70% of us will be infected with the Virus, but death rates will be relatively low when compared to other pandemics of the past century. 
The reason for such widespread transmission is that you can walk around for days and days without showing any signs of illness, a certain percentage will not even become symptomatic at all.  With Sars people were becoming ill very quickly, helping identify and contain the transmission.

The best thing for anyone is to try and bolster your immune systems as much as possible.  I would recommend to everyone to start taking NAC every day, up to 1,800mg.  In six years since I started taking NAC I have not had one cold or one flu. I used to get Bronchitis 2 to 3 times a year, ending up on antibiotics  each time.  Not one episode of Bronchitis in 6 years, wonderful. 
By the way, a very good friend of mine who owns a pharmacy urged me onto this product. I listened and am so grateful for his almost demand that I start on it.

Don't take my word for it, do your own research, but it is one of the 10 things on the World Health Organization's list of essential things you can do to increase your immune system. 

Free advice, probably no one will take.
