Bullet Points Saturday, October 23, 2020

What a week! Democrat Candidate Biden headed to the “Biden Bunker” after a campaign appearance on Monday and did not come out until the Thursday debate. Meanwhile, the president did at least two rallies each day in cities across the country. While all this final presidential debate hoopla unfolded, life for other Americans just stayed the way it always is: busy, complicated, and full of unanswered questions. Would we know it any other way?

Of course, there were many important things that happened across the globe, in the U.S., and maybe even in your city that you may have missed. We keep a watch for all of these important events and, each Saturday, we bring those to you in our “Bullet Points.” It’s a simple feature to use:

Bullet Points

  • Political polls are all over the spectrum! There are so many questions one must ask about the results given in this presidential race: Who’s ahead, who are those polled, what are their political affiliations, what kind of poll are these results from? It’s important to know all of these elements of polling. But, even with that, you never really know for certain how accurate is each poll. One of the most credible of the polling services each political cycle is Rasmussen. Friday, Rasmussen released their poll detail current probabilities for our election in less than two weeks.

  • When it comes to COVID-19, few are the answers to questions about what we should or should not do in living our lives in “COVID Land.” And those answers are critical — especially when they deal with our students, school faculty members, school staff, and teachers. The uncertainty daily seeds fear into the hearts of minds of all those involved in our education system and even for those who are NOT “in” the system but are parents or other family members of those involved in school settings. What are the realities of the dangers they may face? For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Did you know that this weekend is week 7 of the NFL season? It’s hard enough to believe the NFL finally got started playing this year. But it’s even harder to believe that going into this week, there are still 5 teams that are undefeated! Who are they, who do they each play, and what are the predicted outcomes?

  • Were you one of the millions of Americans who tuned in to watch former Vice President Biden and President Trump go at it in the final presidential debate last night? If you were, you saw a toned-down president and a ramped-up challenger go head-to-head. The first debate was extremely divisive and confrontational with very limited results from either candidate. Thursday night’s debate was quite different. But there were some moments of clear victory that were obvious in the debate and some conclusions that will certainly make a difference in the minds of numerous voters.

  • Every presidential election cycle there seems to be an “October Surprise” — some outlandish bit of information dumped into the American news marketplace that is negative for one candidate which usually is a benefit to the other candidate. Maybe the Biden Family Corruption scandal was this election cycle’s “October Surprise.” And some of those emails discovered on a discarded laptop of Joe Biden’s son that are reportedly very ugly and include some damning information about Hunter Biden, Jim Biden who is the former vice president’s brother, and Joe Biden himself. We were informed Friday night that those emails are about to be released to the American people. For complete details, click on this link:
  • It is safe to say that President Trump’s supporters are very loyal and very demonstrative in not only supporting Mr. Trump but letting everyone around them know just how demonstrative they feel! The President, besides being very thankful for their support, oozes his personal affection for them and their support. And he talks about that! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • It is fairly certain that Amy Coney Barrett is about to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the next Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Her confirmation process hearings ended last week and were exhaustive and flooded with partisan controversy. Seldom in SCOTUS justice hearings in our past have Senators adopted political party policies in their determination of the qualification of a nominee to serve in that capacity. But that is NOT the case in 2020. For complete details, click on this link: 
  • Halloween is coming up next week! It’s going to be a different and probably less festive holiday for the kids because of COVID-19. But there will be some other drastic occurrences this Halloween that have nothing to do with candy, costumes, or going door to door. An international group of witches have joined forces to cast spells on Donald Trump in a mass effort to impact negatively in his election results. These witches really want Mr. Trump out of the White House! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • 2020 has sadly seen horrendous rioting and looting on the streets of many of America’s largest cities. People are demonstrating and lashing out at a plethora of things happening in our government which they detest and so they are lashing out in a very militant fashion in some cases. For those reasons, many Americans are stocking up on “all things military” to prepare for what just might be more rioting in our city streets regardless of who wins the November 3rd presidential election.

  • Maybe you were too busy this week to hear that the Pope issued a statement endorsing same-sex unions. His proclamation was not well-received by many Catholics because Catholicism has forever resisted recognizing the unions of homosexual partners. Those rejecting the Pope’s edict encompasses even many Catholic Cardinals! For complete details, click on this link:
