The Christian right’s hostility to science…

The Christian right’s hostility to science is definitely going to get people killed

The Christian right has long been hostile to science. Now that attitude will make the pandemic much worse

The Christian God was hung on a cross rather 
than change... what will the Christians do 
to Science rather than change?

To be clear, Christian right leaders aren’t denying that coronavirus is a real problem (at least not anymore). If anything, the bevy of snake oil salesman who call themselves ministers sees the panic around the virus as a marketing opportunity to make money from selling dangerous supplements, to declare the virus can be beaten with the power of prayer and to declare that the pandemic is a divine punishment inflicted on sinners

Trump Is Now Openly Trying to Censor His Critics. 

His campaign’s cease-and-desist letter to broadcast stations is a frightening assault on free speech.

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF ARE INVOLVED IN AN EXPOSURE OF TRUMP… but eventually he will come for us….

Over the course of his presidency, Donald Trump has made thousands of false, offensive, and damaging claims that could hurt his reelection odds. Democrats plan to use these statements as campaign fodder through the November election. On Wednesday, the Trump campaign adopted a new tactic to neutralize these attacks: It threatened to sue critics of the president in a brazen effort to censor Trump’s opponents into silence. Any real legal action is unlikely to hold up against the First Amendment. But Trump doesn’t need to succeed in court in order to win.

This Is a Man-Made Disaster, and That Man Is Donald Trump

We have literally gone from the most-prepared country in the world last fall to the country with the highest rate of spread of the virus in the world today

Thursday morning brought the news that U.S. jobless claims for last week were 3.3 million. Previous week? It was 281,000. What’s it going to be next week, and the week after that? And next Friday, April 3, we’ll get our first monthly jobs numbers since this was officially declared a pandemic on March 11.

That should be fun.
