    Hey, ed Novak, Working with addicts, veterans and homeless, now, linking local charities, whether they like it, or not. Local fuzz, politics and homeless people... Wow! We behave as if they're invisible... Like mental illness/uniqueness, is a crime. These human beings aren't designed, like common folk. I'm meeting sooo many talented, eccentric geniuses on the street. I will break this system of indifference and profit of human suffering! The homeless don't often seek medical attention. People lie to their medical professionals to get what they want. They speak to me. They tell me exactly what they've taken. To the best of my ability, they trust me to care for them. Mostly, they just want to be heard. The cost of a life to become homeless... Horrors! So many, believe money is coming... Help, is coming... They have hope, believe it, or not. Let's not disappoint them. 😁 Picking up a homeless man from county, now. Let us see whether he chooses differently for himself. Golden Entertainment, avi resort, Catholic Charities, vfw 2555, Guardian Foundation, Lutheran Community... And sooo many more... Stand behind me. I been busy. 😁

    2 impeachments.... 2 acquittals...... billions of taxpayer money wasted... thousands of government man hours used during "the worst pandemic in a century". And not a peep about how the average american is completely outraged about it but every second of the impeachment process was covered. Great news reporting guys!! Really shows how you care about the average joe!!!

    I will never trust Republicans. Biden is trying to reach across the isle but we are not going let Mitch hold up the legislation that we need to get America out of this pandemic and back to work. Always remember that the Republican party represents the wealthy 1st and foremost. They can afford the long game. Millions out of work but the stock market is good.They can use the antiabortionists because they still have a choice to 'go on vacation around the world and get an abortion anonymously.' They are against the regulations that keep us safe from pollution, food poisoning, and on the job accidents. They claim to be for small business but we have seen how their polices and lack of action led to the closures of many of them. Using freedom of religion to impose their religious precepts on the rest of us. I could go on with things like the big con of how they are going to cut your taxes but you find your wallet shrinking with other expenses and the national debt goes up along with the interest on it. I will close with almost half a million dead and thousands could have been saved with simple polices of wearing masks and social distancing.

When it affects us the people they Democrats encourage violence but sht their pants when it affects them.then they say call capitol police call the national guard we are being attacked!

    All the Senate vote-numbers are wrong! THIS IS THE MAIN PROBLEM! THEY NEED TO BE FIXED! It should take 3/5's of the Senate (60 senators) to impeach & it should take 54/46 vote to break a filibuster. The ones who don't want to vote with their party every time probably doesn't do so only because they calculate that even if they did the outcome would fail and they would just be exposed as an outsider. The Senate's not taking bipartisan-voting seriously because the numbers are too-high. It's not democratic allowing one-party that didn't win the people's-votes hold-up what the Senators who won want to do. If the numbers were closer the Senators who want to break from their party would feel more empowered and take the vote more seriously since they could actually make a difference. The Senators who want to vote differently would see an outlook for benefit and redemption instead of just exposing themselves as an outlier and becoming a lame-duck.

    Remember this, Trump and the Republicans will have to answer to; "These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren." - Prov 6: 16-19

    It's a sad & disappointing time for America. It's also scary because Trump's power grows again! The corrupt Oath Breakers have no remorse in choosing their loyalty to domestic enemy Trump.... instead of honoring their oath to us. They have enabled Trump to abuse us again! It seems illegal to me. It seems like a major flaw in our government ...that the Senators were the "jurors".. .They were not fair or impartial so WHY are they the jurors? I hope Trump will be convicted CRIMINALLY! I will never change my hatred & loathing of psychopath, corrupt, selfish, wannabe king Trump. I hope he & his family go to jail!

    This impeachment was only done to shift attention away from the dirty election and back onto big, bad Trump. Well it backfired spectacularly. It exposed the Democrats for the despicable liars and hypocrites that they are. It showed how much worse Democrats rhetoric and language is. It showed how Democrats' rhetoric fueled the mass violence and destruction caused by Antifa and BLM. And finally, it made Trump one hundred times more popular and stronger than he was prior to the impeachment.

Absolutely sick and anyone who thinks this is ok needs serious mental health evaluations. America is falling apart thanks to trump

    I think it’s sad very sad that these people with no logic or common sense are so obsessed with President Trump that you can tell he is the first and last thing on their minds when they wake up and go to sleep. They have a sickening obsession with him and it’s scary. It’s scary to have people running this country with so much hate in their hearts! People that hate in this level do crazy things! They do things without logic, they do dangerous things! They do things to get revenge that’s their first priority to get revenge to the person they hate and that hate also reflects to all the more than 70 million people that voted for President Trump! In another words they don’t only hate President Trump they hate more than half of the country that voted for Trump so basically they also hate this nation, they don’t work together to better the nation to fix this mess they are working together to destroy it! I mean think about it if they actually put this effort the same effort that they’re putting towards this hate on Trump you know how much they could’ve accomplished already you know how much did they could’ve done for the people that needs them! This same people are bringing us down all of us including the people that voted for them and didn’t vote for them we’re all going down with them! All because of their hate all because of their selfishness! It’s scary having these people trying to run a Nation when they can’t even put their priorities straight! These people that are trying to run this nation are literally mentally ill and need professional help and I’m so surprised that those people that supposedly voted for him are actually OK with this. Instead of trying to fix this nation with so much people dying so much people losing everything they worked years to accomplish because of the selfishness they’re losing everything! These Democrats actually have time to impeach a person a regular US citizen that’s not even in office! I don’t know but this is actually very scary and almost everyone is with their arms crossed to see what happen next and what’s gonna happen next is going to affect all of the US citizens of the United States of America 🇺🇸!!!!
