Bullet Points

  • Most Americans have found themselves simply worn out by all the important information and subsequent details of handling this new “COVID-19 World.” What’s right; what’s wrong? What should you do; what should you NOT do? Mask or no mask? You don’t want to get it wrong, but, at the same time, you don’t want to waste your time and the times of others in your life by piling on needless responsibilities. Amid all this uncertainty, one state this week just decided to do away with any requirement for folks in the state to wear masks. Their doing so comes to many as a breath of fresh air — no pun intended. Is it the right or wrong decision to do away with the mask mandate? For complete details, click on this link:
  • By now, all know that President Trump and the First Lady both tested positive for COVID-19. Of course, the Mainstream Media have been having a fun time at the President’s expense. Most Democrats in government have been kind and respectful — especially former Vice President Biden. Why politicize someone’s physical infirmity, right? But MSNBC’s Joy Reid went low — REALLY low in discussing the President’s COVID diagnosis. For complete details, click on this link:
  • In this caustic political environment in which we find ourselves, it’s probably a natural emotion for many to lash out at the President, saying, “Mr. President, you probably deserve COVID-19 for the way you’ve thumbed your nose at the experts who have cautioned about the lack of social distancing and mask mandates at your rallies. You’re getting what you deserve.” But, thankfully, not all in leadership in the country have gone down the road. Even former Vice President Biden tweeted some very positive remarks and suggestions to all Americans about how we should handle this time and this specific situation.

  • No matter what the polls have to say about the presidential race, most people sense that President Trump is quickly closing the gap with Mr. Biden in one of the key swing states that both candidates know it is imperative to win to have a shot at the White House: Florida. Why is that? Conventional wisdom has been that Democrats always carry Florida. However, Candidate Trump beat Hillary in Florida in 2016, surprising most everyone. The reason is that Hispanics in South Florida, many of whom either personally or in their families, immigrated from Cuba to Florida. Those hold vivid memories of the horrors of the Castro Socialism in Cuba. They certainly do not want to see Socialism in the U.S. For complete details, click on this link:
  • In Tuesday night’s debate, the subject of the taxes paid by President Trump was put front and center by Joe Biden. Biden accused the President of only paying $750 in the first two years of his presidency in federal taxes. That was reported in the New York Times just days before the debate. The trouble is, the President paid FAR more than that. He paid several million dollars in advance and had refunds coming. So what’s up with all that? For complete details, click on this link:
  • We all know that COVID-19 has been terrible on businesses of all kinds nationwide. Some of America’s largest cities have been hit the hardest. Take New York City, for example. If you know Manhattan, you know how many quaint restaurants and bars are historical landmarks for people from all around the world. Because of COVID, financial experts in New York say that as much as 50% of such businesses might NOT make it back from COVID. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Hollywood Entertainment Mogul Harvey Weinstein has been outed by numerous actresses and other female entertainers for having a salacious sexual appetite for young women. And Weinstein has whet that appetite through the years by virtually blackmailing aspiring young Hollywood women into having sex with him for the exchange of opportunities in Hollywood that he can give to them. And now, new charges have been levied at Weinstein that, if proven, could send him to prison for the rest of his life. For complete details, click on this link:
  • We haven’t heard much from down south in the past year or so. It seems that those massive immigrant troupes from Central America finally figured out that the U.S. is NOT going to open its southern border to any who want to come here — unless they immigrate legally. That lasted for a good while. However, there is currently a caravan of about 2000 Hondurans headed toward the U.S. southern border with plans for nothing less than access for a permanent live in the United States.

  • COVID-19 has certainly changed the way Americans think. In fact, for those who live in large cities, the idea of moving to some rural community with vast outdoor living opportunities have become so appealing that the wealthy in a place like Manhattan are racing to gobble up expensive real estate in more “suburban” areas such as eastern Long Island. And one place in Colorado is being flooded, not with just people from large cities, but RICH people from large cities who don’t care about the prices charged for exclusive real estate in those areas.

  • Who thinks that there can possibly be a “new” type of dementia that might be worse than Alzheimer’s? There may be one. Scientists have discovered a new “novel” dementia gene that is quite different than that of Alzheimer’s that might be scary, but it might help us find a breakthrough in treating Alzheimer’s itself!
