For years, Oregon has had a vote by mail system. 

It works. Ballots and voters' pamphlets are sent to all voters. 

If a recount is necessary, paper ballots are there. Voting is done within the privacy of one's home, without risking one's health.

All states should implement such a system and we should all be demanding our states implement a system like this immediately.

I think Trump tolerates him more than listens to him.

@IronMan2020 Also, there’s a world full of people who would line up for the chance.

Vulcans believe that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. @FirstOfficerSpock is half human, and I, like Spock, live on a ship with humans. We recognize that the human way of caring for the few also has it merits.

Most who believe in the needs of the many recognize that children benefit from life with grandparents, and many children are raised in grandparent-headed families. Few children would sacrifice their grandparents for any amount of money. washingtonpost.com/opinions/20

@TPol
Sound decisions require logical reasoning.

Promoting the idea of risking one's life for no purpose other than some potential short-term material gain is not a logical decision.

We've sure come a long way from "Obamacare will kill our nation's cherished seniors" to "Okay, we need the older people to die because the stock market is too low and we have an election coming up."

@InternetKevin
Fox News is essentially a Trump propaganda channel.

When I travel, (which I am not right now) I turn it off on TVs in gyms and public areas.

@IronMan2020 @InternetKevin I've actually walked out of businesses that have that crap on.

I have said many times that the Republican Party should die. I did NOT mean that people who are Republicans should die. But that’s where this thing is heading. See Mississippi, for example.

Here are some words from my favorite Governor, Tom Wolf of PA, that I found helpful:

“I know for all of us the next few weeks are going to be challenging. There’s no reason to be fearful or to panic, however.

But we need to take this disease seriously. So please, stay home.

For example, if you need to go to the pharmacy, go to the pharmacy to fill a prescription. Do that. But don’t stop at several other stores or places on the way and make contact with a dozen other people."

@AgentCarter_SSR2020
It would be a good idea to instruct Dr. Fauci on the ways of the Vulcans when dealing with Mr. Trump.

Either hand is sufficient.

Trump on Hydroxychloroquine: "It's been around for a long time, so we know if things don't go as planned it's not going to kill anybody."

Fox News: “Drug cleared by Trump, FDA for coronavirus testing also found in fish tanks.”

Take them both off the air.
