Weekly Comments:  It’s Biden (and China) vs. Trump

Is your mailbox stuffed with daily reminders to vote early? Fifty million already voted. If this trend keeps up, a lot of polling sites three days after Halloween will be an empty ghost town. No excuse for not voting. If states counted the early votes early, we would know the winners five minutes after the polls close.

The Covid-19 pandemic is getting worse. CNN says 225,000 have died and they make sure we know the running total up to the minute. And Joe Biden makes sure we know who to blame for every one of ‘em.

I’ve said it before: Trump is an optimist. He knows the coronavirus is a tough opponent and he has thrown everything against it except the kitchen sink.

Meanwhile Joe Biden is a pessimist. He’s telling us it will be a dark winter, all 50 states need to require masks, no large gatherings, and no relief until at least next summer.

CNN is even more pessimistic. Because a few staff for both VP Pence and VP candidate Harris have tested positive, CNN says those two, plus Trump, should follow Biden’s lead and stop in-person campaigning and camp out in a basement until the election is over. I doubt Trump will take advice from CNN.

Have we forgotten who caused the worldwide pandemic? The Chinese Communists! We need to be reminded it’s the Chinese leaders who have killed 225,000 Americans. Not Trump, not Dr. Fauci, not Fox News, not anyone else.

This fact will upset you even more. American exports are down 18 percent compared to a year ago. Guess what the drop has been for Chinese exports. Zero! The country that started Covid-19 and exported it to the world has already returned their export sales to pre-Covid levels. China thrives while the United States and the rest of the world suffers.

Do you still think Russia is the main country influencing our election?

Historic quotes by Will Rogers:

“There should be a moratorium called on candidates’ speeches. They have both called each other everything in the world they can think of. From now on they are just talking themselves out of votes. Of all the conceit. This country is a thousand times bigger than any two men in it, or any two parties in it. These big politicians are so serious about themselves and their parties. This country has gotten where it is in spite of politics, not by the aid of it. That we have carried as much political bunk as we have and still survived shows we are a super nation.

So, you two boys just get the weight of the world off your shoulders and go fishing… You will be surprised, but the old United States will keep right on running while you boys are sitting on the bank.” DT #1948, Nov. 1, 1932

“If you ever injected truth into politics you would eliminate politics.” WA #31, July 15, 1923
