A message to all Media, Media Associations, and all of your members: It is time that the news media start telling all of the news. Tell the facts as facts. Then give an analysis after making the facts clear. And make sure that analysis includes differing opinions and analysis of all opinions. You are one of the pillars on which the strength of our Nation stands. Act like it.
Donald Trump has turned the Republican Party into the new N**i Party. What he is doing is the same thing Hi**er did to take over Germany using racism, prejudice, and hatred. Forcing election judges to change votes and create fake ones. Even after Trump is out of office, this new Republican pro-nazi party will still be around. That is what America needs to fear the most and get rid of them before it is too late. Georgia you must vote Democrat or go down in history as the state that allowed America to be destroyed! Trump said that Cruz's father killed Kennedy and Cruz quit the race and been backing Trump ever since. Do you really think that he was joking? -Gregory St. James Mundy
Mr. President Sign This Relief Bill
America has come together on a bill that both Republicans and Democrats have agreed to. They have put party aside for the welfare of the American people. We all agree that $2000 is better than $600. Yet, we also agree that $600 is better than nothing.
While the American people are hurting during this horrible time, we cannot wait another week or months arguing over a new bill. The American people need help now. We can always come up with a separate bill that includes more money later. For the good of this country and for your devoted love of the American people, you must sign this bill now. -Gregory St. James Mundy
