Thomas Ultican: CREDO's founder wrote a paper that put him on the screen of the conservative movement when he claimed spending $ on better trained teachers, smaller class sizes, etc., wouldn't help education.. He's working to privatize schools.

Bill Scher: The last 3 1/2 yrs, Trump has hit the ground running with judges. The quality of the judges has gone down, & not all were supported by American Bar Assoc. Trump has hit 200 judges faster than anyone since Jimmy Carter.

John Feltz: Amtrak is using the pandemic as an excuse for cutting the workforce & services. It's 100% wrong & is not protecting the public. Rick: This is wrong opportunism.

Richard Eiker: Initially there was a very slow response to COVID at McDonald's. Now we finally have face shields at the drive-through windows; we have masks & gloves, but these things didn't appear until May.

Scott Dworkin: Trump was told immediately about Putin's murder for hire; anything Russia-related, Trump is told immediately per his orders. That's the only country he wants to know everything about.

Propane Jane: I think the couple with assault rifles in the video should be charged with something. Most gun owners are married white men in the south. Racism has sustained the "well-regulated militia." This is the language that motivates these people.

David Yankovich: Biden's trying to build an online army. It'll take basic old school organizing. They need a rapid response digital structure; if they don't have that in place in the next month or two, it'll be too late.
