Please do not confuse the looters with those people who lawfully protest!
Let's face the facts. The Democrats have had a relief proposal for months, which the Republicans ignored. The, at the last minute the Republicans announce their proposal. Then the Democrats agreed to reduce the $600 payment to $400 and the Republicans stick with their $200. Who is the bad guy here?

This is my opinion section-all the rest in this blog can be verified
I was asked by someone if I can separate the man from his policies. My answer is NO. So many of Trump's policies result from his horrible view of people and the world. They are inextricably linked.
And, shouldn't you respect the president?-I say you can respect the office, but the person occupying it has to earn respect.
Trump is impeached forever!-His destination: The trash heap of history
His two defining character traits are ignorance and arrogance, a lethal combination. That, plus being a pathological liar.
Not my president-lost by three million votes!
The White House asylum is being run by the inmates, headed by the chief lunatic!
Too bad there isn’t a vaccine for serial liars
Why are most of the books criticizing Trump written by Republicans?
I would rather tear down Mount Rushmore than add Trump.
Keep Track Here of Republican Attempts to Suppress Voter Rights-They:
08.09.20-This Week's Lie-Trump flat-out ignored a reporter’s challenge Saturday to his often-repeated false claim that he was responsible for passing the Veterans Choice health care law. He then ended his press conference and walked out. Obama passed this is 2014.
08.09.20-This Week's Dirty Trick-Trump proposes deferring payroll taxes that provide funding for both Social Security and Medicare. While Trump characterized the move as a financial boost for Americans struggling amid the COVID-19 crisis, critics blasted it as a cynical ploy to do what Trump has long intended to do: Gut the vitally important social service programs just as Americans need them more than ever during the pandemic.
08.09.20-This Week's Publicity Stunt-Trump abuses his power by trying to bypass Congress on virus-relief economic measures. (I do think Congress needs to get this done, now!) Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.): "The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop."
08.09.20-This Week's Flouting the Law-Calling it a ‘peaceful protest,’ Trump flouts coronavirus guidelines with golf club gathering.
These weekly accounts are transferred the following week to the Trump-W.T.H. page.
Under Trump, intelligence officials have been placed in the unusual position of being pressured to justify the importance of their work, protect their colleagues from political retribution and demonstrate fealty to a president. Though intelligence officials have been loath to admit it publicly, the cumulative result has been devastating. ...
Trump has reordered their world and their work. As one of them told me: "The problem is that when you’ve been treated the way the intelligence community has, they become afraid of their own shadow. The most dangerous thing now is the churn — the not knowing who’s going to be fired, and what it is you might say that could cost you your job. It’s trying to put out something and not get creamed for it."
08.05.20-From The Week:
Trump, the head of the Republican Party, is a corrupt and malicious imbecile. Republicans in Congress are a mix of Trump enablers, obstructionist-demagogues out to maximize the wealth of their donors, know-nothing conspiracist loons, and a few reformers experimenting with the most politically palatable way to blend nationalism with socialism. All of them are primarily motivated by the drive toward self-promotion within the right-wing media complex. And when we move further down the Republican hierarchy to the state and local level, things only get worse.
08.04.20-From the New Republic:
The most jarring thing about Donald Trump is that he is president. Nearly every press conference, public event, and interview is awash with contradictions. On the one hand, there is the man in the office: grotesque, incoherent, malicious, dumb. On the other, there are the rituals and aesthetic trappings that have grown around the office of the presidency itself, which all communicate its awesome power and solemnity. A lot of media coverage gets lost in these contradictions, as if reporters and camera operators can’t quite believe what they’re seeing: How do you capture—let alone hold to account—someone so ridiculous?

Trump administration officials say they have evidence, but they clammed up when asked to see it, and the intelligence reports and other records indicate the opposite.
