WE WILL  NEVER SEE THIS AGAIN.

It’s one you want your Children and Grandchildren to read.

They won’t believe this happened, but it DID.

Harry & Bess

@bestofnatureblog

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence , Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me.. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, too many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale (ie. Illinois ).

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!

We ought to have cloned him for telling it like it is and being frugal with our tax dollars!

If you agree, forward it. If you don’t, delete it. I don’t want to know one way or the other. By me forwarding it, you know how I feel.

Enjoy life now — it has an expiration date!

Australian Thoughts on The American Elections

Advertisements

What Australians care about is all those poor souls dying and the American government of the day don’t give a ” rats arse ” about their own citizens @bestofnatureblog @acenewsservices

… all predicated of course on the incorrect assumption that the USA is a democracy and that the people choose the president. Well it ain’t. The founding fathers, mostly rich farmers or successful lawyers, back in the 18th century did not trust the concept of a “democratically” elected president. After Washington refused to accept the title of “king,” the then less than 1% came up withe concept of “electoral college” where the college membership would vote for the new “president” with a republican constitution and congress. Ask who appoints the electoral college? Why politicians in power of course. The college would be firmly under the control of the new “upper classes.” Thus America became an undemocratic republic which is evident to this day. The concept of “democracy” as we know it is snake oil sold to the the US masses by their rulers. If you don’t believe me, query why it costs millions of dollars to get a seat in congress and ask where the candidates get their money from?  Nearly all US politicians are owned from day one. Trump was different. He had his own loot and therefore was beholden to nobody.

THE RULE OF LAW ~ NOT THE LAW OF THE MEDIA JUNGLE.

It doesn’t really matter whether you like Donald Trump or you don’t

Over 70 million American People voted for Donald Trump and want to count every vote that was legal and

discard every vote that was not .

It doesn’t really matter if you like Joe Biden or you don’t .

 If this “Mexican Stand Off “between the Red [White] and Blue is not handled 

correctly then there will be trouble .

America is sitting on a powder keg .

Blind Freddy can easily see that Joe Biden was premature in announcing that he

was the 46th President Elect and should modify his rhetoric to embrace due 

process “The Rule Of Law” and the announcement by the 50 states as to who has won the electoral college in their respective constituencies .

Maybe Joe Biden has won and if so “good on him” .

Maybe Donald Trump has won and if son”good on him”

Handled incorrectly has the potential for a second civil war .

The American Civil War ran from 12th April 1861 to the 13th May 1865 

A battle between the Blue & The Grey one month after Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as the 16th President of the United States .

Who would win that’s anybody’s guess however this time it could be citizen against 

citizen and neighbour against neighbour and rather tragically family against family 

It doesn’t really matter whether you like Donald Trump or you don’t .

Just for the record the opinions of foreign nationals~ foreign leaders

[with the exception of Vladimir Putin The American Media [with the exception of THE EPOCH TIMES which 

prides itself in “truth and tradition”] ~ Or the foreign media for that matter too.

It. Doesn’t really matter if you like Joe Biden or you don’t .

This marathon battle in my opinion will be fought out in the SUPREME COURT

of the United States And as we all know they are learned men & women of the

highest integrity who are not biased one way to t ’other

President Trump told supporters at a rally in North Carolina that the country was turning the corner in the fight against COVID-19, offering a starkly different message from his Democratic rival Joe Biden https://t.co/i6T5euQsBD https://t.co/lKXi4uiNeh http://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1320226077881585664 October 25, 2020 at 04:50AM

As COVID-19 hits swing states, Biden and Trump show sharp contrast

CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio/DALLAS, Pa. (Reuters) – President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden gave starkly contrasting messages on Saturday about the coronavirus pandemic, taking their campaigns for the White House on the road to swing states where COVID-19 cases are surging again.Biden, Trump show opposing views as COVID-19 surgeshttps://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.418.3_en.html#goog_1751008418 

Biden, Trump show opposing views as COVID-19 surges

02:26

Trump addressed a few thousand supporters at a tightly packed, in-person, outdoor rally in North Carolina, one of the battleground states in the Nov. 3 election. He again said America was turning the corner in the fight against COVID-19 and mocked Biden’s more cautious campaigning style.

Biden, a former vice president, addressed supporters in vehicles at two drive-in rallies in Pennsylvania and warned of a grim winter ahead unless the Trump administration did a better job of halting the disease, which has killed 224,000 Americans.

Opinion polls show Biden leading Trump nationally, but the race is much closer in the battleground states that will decide the election.

In Lumberton, North Carolina, Trump told supporters he was offering a fast recovery from the economic damage wrought by virus lockdowns, which have devastated small businesses and put millions out of work.

“It’s a choice between a Trump super boom and a Biden lockdown,” the Republican president said. “We are rounding the turn,” he said, repeating a claim he has been making for months that America is close to getting the better of the virus.

Late on Saturday a spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence disclosed that Marc Short, Pence’s chief of staff, had tested positive for the new coronavirus. Pence and his wife tested negative earlier in the day and the vice president will not alter his schedule, the spokesman said.

By contrast, Biden warned that the cold months ahead could be even harsher due to a resurgence of the virus, which has killed more people in the United States than anywhere else and is on the rise in several battleground states.

“It’s going to be a dark winter ahead unless we change our ways,” he said of Trump’s attempts to contain the coronavirus.

Biden was addressing supporters in the town of Bristol who had gathered in pickup trucks or cars, many with their windows or sunroofs down, to avoid possible coronavirus infection. Biden’s campaign limited each vehicle to a maximum of four passengers.

At one point, Biden called out a group of Trump supporters who were shouting into microphones nearby. “We don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphone are doing. The Trump guys. It’s about decency.”

At his event in Lumberton, Trump made fun of the Biden rally, which he said he had seen on television.

“There were so few cars. I’ve never seen an audience like that,” he said. “It was a tiny, tiny little crowd. You could hear the cars: honk honk.”

COVID-19 SURGING

The United States set a single-day record of more than 84,000 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, with the spike in infections hitting election swing states Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

North Carolina reported 2,584 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, down from a record high of 2,716 the day before.

Many states have expanded in-person early voting and mail-in ballots as a safer way to vote during the pandemic.Slideshow ( 5 images )

Trump voted in his adopted home of Florida on Saturday, joining more than 56 million Americans who have cast early ballots at a record-setting pace.

Trump cast his ballot at a library in West Palm Beach, near his Mar-a-Lago resort, after switching his permanent residence and voter registration last year from New York to Florida, a must-win battleground for his re-election bid.

In New York state, voters jammed polling places and stood in line for hours to cast ballots on the state’s first day of early voting on Saturday. Long lines formed before polls opened across New York City and Long Island, videos on social media showed.

With 10 days to go in the campaign, the pace of early voting could lead to the highest voter turnout rate in more than a century, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project.Slideshow ( 5 images )

Trump has regularly condemned mail-in voting without evidence as prone to fraud, even though experts say it is as safe as any other method.

The large number of early voters is a sign of the intense interest in this year’s election, as well as concerns about avoiding crowded polling places on Election Day and reducing the risk of exposure to the coronavirus.

In Pennsylvania, polls show Biden narrowly leading. A Reuters/Ipsos survey released earlier this week showed Biden with a four-percentage point advantage over Trump in the state, down from seven points the week before.

Apart from the coronavirus, the candidates sparred over energy policy, an important issue in Pennsylvania which is the nation’s second-largest producer of natural gas after Texas.

Biden denied Trump accusations that he plans to ban fracking, a process to extract natural gas from shale.

“I will not ban fracking, period,” he said in Dallas, Pennsylvania at his second rally of the day. “I don’t think big oil companies need a handout from the federal government. We’re gonna get rid of the $40 billion fossil fuel subsidies, and we’re going to invest it in clean energy and carbon capture,” Biden said.

At an outdoor, in-person Trump rally in Circleville, Ohio, the crowd booed at a video Trump played showing various times when Biden said he would like to move away from fossil fuels.

Biden got some help from former President Barack Obama, who held a drive-in rally in Miami and delivered a blistering attack on Trump’s leadership.

“This pandemic would’ve been tough for any president because we haven’t seen something like this in 100 years, but the idea that somehow this White House has done anything but completely screw this up is nonsense,” Obama said.

Why don’t both republicans and democrats meet in the middle and simply pass a public option.

Republicans will till have private insurance; doctors can still refuse the public option if they want.

Democrats get an available chance that can include all the working class and the poor and the lower middle class.

They can still negotiate on drugs.

Doctors would have more choices with seeing medicare patients and or private insurance patients.

Hospitals get money from all those who lack current health insurance and get paid for any ER patients, so they are happy.

Seems to me having a hybrid system is a win-win for everyone.

The “middle” you describe, the “public option.”

Is part of “the Biden plan”. That‘s why Trump keeps attacking it and why Trumpsters will never go for it.

You seem to have missed the point of today’s politics. When we finally elected lawyers to public office, they killed the mechanism of compromise.

Teaches that the goal is to win at the expense of your opponent.

The effort of congress in passing a second bill to help individuals and groups survive to point this out.

There were items in the House (D) bill as well as the Senate (R)bill that matched.

Furthermore, they each had other items that were rejected by the others.

The fact that there was no compromise nor agreement on everyday items illustrates how broken your government has become.

I’ve always figured your system is broken because of money in politics, gerrymandering and only having two political party that have a chance.

That I agree with you on and comment is why not make the Senate even ? Half democrats and half republicans.

That way, they would have have to compromise.

At least I would hope.

It’s become evident that the United States is ripe for health care reform- our costs are the highest (per capita) in the world, even without covering everyone.

The rest of the developed world somehow manages to cover everyone and keep costs under control, and in these countries, they enjoy lower stress

It’s time America to look after your citizens
