    I don't believe Trump is taking hydroxychloroquine. I don't believe anything he says without checking reliable sources. It's incredibly irresponsible that he's pushing an unknown and likely dangerous drug to a gullible public.
    He's probably taking something but who knows what, probably amphetamines, circumstantial evidence for that. I mean even hydroxychloroquine could in certain circumstances cause psychosis, but my guess would be it's amphetamines with the dual diagnosis of a personality disorder that is causing his psychosis.

    As for hydroxychloroquine I'll leave that to scientists and medical professionals to study.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

Not like trump now taking hydroxychloroquine based on what he hears from others and not listening to experts. One of the side effects, I hear, is losing your hair. Wouldn't that be poetic justice?
    The authoritarian elements of our society have always viewed times when large numbers of people are afraid as an opportunity to advance their agenda. No matter what schedule states choose (and they must choose) to begin relaxing restrictions, they will strive to smear whatever blood they can on their ideological enemies.

    Our state is allowing voting in person on one day but a month ago sent all registered voters a mail in ballot for a election in June. They want people to not have to come in person. Wisconsin could have done that.

    Republicans live in fear of mail in balloting. And yes, WI could have done that but they feared losing. Jokes on them! They lost

    Comedian Noel Casler (with corroboration by others), who worked with Trump for years on The Apprentice, says he's on an Adderall/benzodiazapene combo, and has been for a long, long time.

    We did all mail in ballots in Ohio for the March primary election due to the Covid-19 crisis (with the election timeline changed to April) and had lots of problems. Lots of households receiving too many or too few ballots and an issue with the USPS not delivering completed ballots back to various boards of election in time to be counted. Lots of opportunity for abuse, I'd think that would be more of a non-partisan issue but I guess not.

    My State has been doing entirely vote-by-mail for years and years now, and it seems to work just fine.

    The current governor wanted that.... the Republicans said no. However, Evers should have requested sooner.

    I'm not surprised that a hastily conceived and executed vote-by-mail program would have problems, but Oregon and Washington have had theirs in place for years with few problems and wide acceptance.

    I just saw your post here and wanted to say I'm sorry. What a horrible way to go. Rob
