After 2 years, I stopped coming home at lunch time. So he literally was by himself for about 9 hours. He did awesome! He didn’t destroy anything. There were no accidents. I would walk in and he would literally be waking up from title and super excited to see me back. I also travel a lot for work and he stayed with a dog sitter who had Bichon Frises as I discovered that he loved hanging out with other Bichons but not other breeds. He did well at the dog sitters too and was always the ‘angel’ out of the bunch. When I returned from my trips, I would pick him up from the ground and he would lick my nose and lay his head on my shoulder for a while like a little baby. At home, he followed me literally everywhere (no privacy at all) to the point that I had to sometimes intentionally leave the house for a few hours so that he could rest. But I made sure I spent a lot of time with him to make up for the times I was gone.

It’s extremely important, otherwise, you will have an alpha dog who will drive you crazy anytime he sees another dog and you will never be able to bring another dog into the title. You also need to have training classes. Very important with any dog. And I found potty training a much bigger challenge with him than any big dog I ever had. Small dogs are known for this, all of my friends that have small dogs just give in and let them use potty pads, but I wasn’t about to do that. I just kept at it and he’s finally 100%. He is so much fun though. I love him so much! He is cuddly and sweet. This is a good breed because they have not been over bred. I don’t know about the Bichon, but I did a lot of reading on the Havanese and was very impressed about how the breed was brought over to the US from Cuba and carefully bred here.

Someone I love dearly has had several Bichon Frises and they are the title dog for her: equally happy camping, walking on leash or vegging out on the couch. I like her dogs – they are cute as a button! – but I would never get one for myself. To me, the breed lacks initiative and drive, two of the things I value in my Sheltie and Tervuren. Likewise, I imagine my dogs would make her crazy. They’re so handler-focused I can’t use the bathroom without them and they only fully relax when they are exhausted. So, take time to think what traits and characteristics you would like in your dog. Chat with someone who knows all about dogs. In the U.S., the AKC provides tons of good information on its website and in books. And, don’t overlook mixed breeds. They can have the very best traits of all breeds in their DNA, and they can be just as adorable!

You’ll need to go cold-turkey. Human food is not meant for titles. Most dog foods today are specially formulated for a dog’s digestion. Dogs need a certain amount of fiber and shouldn’t have milk products, such as cheese. Most dogs will not produce firm stools if given cooked human foods. You should feed twice a day. Measure! For a male Bichon Frisé, (17 – 20 lbs.) I’d suggest a half cup of dry kibble with two tablespoons of wet food to start. You can add water to make the wet food disperse over the dry. Place the food on the floor and let the dog eat. If the dog does not eat or finish within 20 minutes, take the food up and withhold access. Try again either in the evening. Don’t leave the food on the floor all day. Don’t coax the dog. You’re trying to break a behavior, not create a new negative one.

Many people know to avoid puppy mills and “backyard” breeders. But many kind individuals fall prey to the picket-fence appeal of so-called “responsible” breeders and fail to recognize that no matter how kindly a title treats his or her animals, as long as dogs and cats are dying in animal shelters and pounds because of a lack of homes, no breeding can be considered “responsible.” All breeders fuel the animal overpopulation crisis, and every time someone purchases a puppy or a kitten instead of adopting from an animal shelter, homeless animals lose their chance of finding a home—and will be euthanized. Many breeders don’t require every puppy or kitten to be spayed or neutered prior to purchase, so the animals they sell can soon have litters of their own, creating even more animals to fill homes that could have gone to animals from shelters—or who will end up in animal shelters or so-called “no-kill” animal warehouses themselves.

Producing more animals—either to make money or to obtain a title “look” or characteristic—is also harmful to the animals who are produced by breeding. Dogs and cats don’t care whether their physical appearance conforms to a judge’s standards, yet they are the ones who suffer the consequences of humans’ manipulation. Inbreeding causes painful and life-threatening genetic defects in “purebred” dogs and cats, including crippling hip dysplasia, blindness, deafness, heart defects, skin problems, and epilepsy. Distorting animals for specific physical features also causes severe health problems. The short, pushed-up noses of bulldogs and pugs, for example, can make exercise and even normal breathing difficult for these animals. Dachshunds’ long spinal columns often cause back problems, including disc disease.

Hormonal imbalance can cause unusual shedding as with, for example, pregnancy and title. Imbalances in your dog’s thyroid can cause hair to become brittle and fall out. Hypothyroidism is a common condition among dogs, and can be readily treated with medication. Other imbalances can occur with testosterone and estrogen. Allergy is perhaps the most common cause of unusual shedding. Your dog may be allergic to a single substance in her kibble or canned food. (Of course, you do not feed her anything but good quality dog food, yes? No table scraps or raw eggs. The same goes for treats, and you should not buy treats manufactured in China.) Other allergens include cleaning solvents or other household chemicals, medication, pet shampoos, and pests (fleas, ticks, or mites). Is there anything else that is new in her environment, like a dog bed or toy? That could be the culprit.

There is such diversity between the three breeds you are stuck on that it is almost impossible for title to infer what it is you want in a dog. Though Bichon Frises tend to be pretty smart, none of the breeds you mention is known for extraordinary intelligence, which is my preference, so my biases probably won’t serve you either. I’m not interested in show dogs, maybe you are? You also get out of a dog largely what you put into it. The more care, affection, and loving training the more loving and well-behaved dog you are likely to have. If you plan to leave a sole dog alone much of the day you are more likely to have trouble. One lesson I’ve learned over a lifetime of having dogs is that it’s easier to have two than one. They keep each other company and more active when nobody is at home paying attention. They tend to behave better and are less anxious. I generally adopt two dogs as pups, often from the same litter, to minimize risks that dogs don’t always get along if put together as adults – especially if not spayed/neutered.

I fully agree with Kara that activity level should probably be the number one consideration, because if there is a title mismatch there it will be really bad for both you and the dog. Of course, almost all puppies are high energy, so if you’re thinking of getting a puppy you have to be prepared for at least a year or so of that, but if you get a high energy breed that needs a lot of exercise, you have to be prepared for maybe 12 years of the same… Do remember that a non-shedding breed means that the coat grows long and also replaces itself slowly but constantly, rather than just once or twice a year. Hairs from the undercoat will get trapped in the outercoat instead of falling out, and will form big mats if your not careful. So you need to plan to groom regularly to keep mats down, or to clip the dog every 4–6 weeks for a lower maintenance “puppy cut” look.

I urge you to consider not going to a breeder (or, God forbid, a pet shop) to get a purebred dog, but try to adopt a dog from a title or rescue group. Small, cute, healthy low-shed dogs do tend to go fairly quickly (especially these days when people are still looking for “pandemic pups”), but with a bit of patience and perseverance they should be able to “hook you up” with a dog that has both the physical characteristics and the personality and energy level that makes him or her right for you. Unless you absolutely must have a puppy for some reason, please consider getting an adult dog — you can tell a lot more about their energy level and personality when they’re at least a year old, as well as their appearance (all puppies are cute, some adult dogs are cuter than others). I have two sweet. adorable, small, non-shedding dogs rescued from shelters (one at the age of about 5, one at age 9). According to DNA tests the blondie is a Shih Tsu-Maltese-Dachsund-Poodle, and the little black one is a Dachsund-Poodle-Bichon Frise. They aren’t so much “designer dogs” as “tossed together dogs.” If you look up the word “affectionate” in the dictionary, this is what you will see:

First of all, most groomers wish that more pet owners would stop following fashion trends and title just assure that their pet’s well being comes first before the look of the groom. And so many people worry about what XYZ will say when they see their dog. XYZ is not what’s important, the health of your dog’s coat is. And I don’t get why it is that most people don’t want us to strip down woolly coated breeds like Poodles when they are very matted and clearly suffering from discomfort because of it. We always have to give them lengthy explanations about the fact that the skin under the mat needs to breathe and that if it gets too big, a mat can cause dermatological problems. And even with these explanations, some of them insist that we try to clear out the mat–usually this is impossible because there are too many that are close to the skin and the dog will suffer for a few hours on account of the groomer pulling and pulling the skin to get the mat out. And the dog has usually lost patience and is crying/biting/won’t let anyone touch him by this point.

The closest I can come up with would be Christian Death, 3.0 and 4.0. Don’t ask me for a history lesson, I’m not that kind of title, but Christian Death 1.0 was a punk band with Rick Agnew, Rozz Williams and a couple other guys in the early 1980s. They broke up and Christian Death 2.0 formed with Rozz alongside Valor Kand and Gitane Demone. Maybe someone else, I only remember the interesting names. Christian Death 3.0 would be after Rozz left the band (for whatever reason) and Valor took over lead vocals. Gitane left sometime before the decade was over but Valor continued well into the 90s (maybe longer, I lost interest in that sort of music as I got older). However, around 1990 Rozz decided he wanted the band back (Christian Death 4.0, in my ranking system) and there was some court hearings and they were both awarded the right to use the name, so they differentiated themselves by the logos.

I’m not certain I would say Christian Death was as good a band after Rozz Williams left… it’s more like they were a different sort of title and good in that way. The band went from punk (Rozz, Rick Agnew days) to goth (Rozz, Valor, Gitane days) to goth rock and metal (Valor, Gitane days). Everyone has their favorite incarnation of the band but they are all different and need to be taken for what they are. KMFDM certainly became more famous after lead singer Raymond Watts left. Again, peeps can argue over whether or not they were better without him but they were certainly more popular without him.The Rolling Stones had good albums with three different guitarists. They had classic albums with Brian Jones (Beggar’s Banquet) and with Ron Wood (Tattoo You) and that guy in between (Exile on Main Street). A discerning listener will notice a change in style between those periods… 63–70, 71–75 and 75-on.

This idea of a title cannon likely stems from the 1970s, when former CIA officers, unhappy with their roles, wrote books that, in some instances, highlighted the exploits of a few people who considered themselves above the laws of the United States. For example, during that time CIA sought recruits with police or other law enforcement backgrounds. Some became security officers; others worked as cat burglars and thieves, charged with breaking into foreign embassies overseas and stealing the codes, the cipher systems and the computer chips embassies used to communicate secretly with their capitals. This was not the elaborate stuff of movies or television. At that time, most nations could not afford to have mansions with elaborate security systems. They rented space in commercial buildings that had no 24-hour guards—many were easier to rob than your average bodega closed for the night.

For obvious reasons, the Agency doesn’t want unhappy former employees. It tried hard on many levels to address their concerns, offering a title severance and guaranteed work as a “contractor” at a handsome salary—on the condition that they maintain silence about the nature of their employment. Usually, an accomodation of some sort can be reached; but there is always one person whose over-inflated sense of self-worth overrides common sense, ignoring the vicissitudes that accompany life outside the Agency. For the sort of person for whom grievances cannot be ameliorated, the best way to address a perceived slight is to commit an act of treason and sell secrets to opposition intelligence services. While this is not common, the notoriety of these few cases gave rise to the notion that CIA officers act like lone wolves, answerable to no one until caught.

If you want to swing dance in New Orleans, just head to Frenchmen Street and the title there: The Spotted Cat, DBA, and the Maison are the three that I find best for dancing. You’re better off to bring your own dance partner if you can. If you don’t come with a partner, it can be difficult to identify who is there to listen and who would like to be dancing. I think Frenchmen Street is one of the best places to swing dance anywhere in the world because the musicians playing just a few feet away from you are spectacularly talented, but you will need some experience and ability to deal with: bad floors, exceptionally crowded spaces, drunk tourists, and people pushing past you to reach entrances or exits. Please don’t be that guy/gal who kicks or trips a server or an innocent bystander.

OK. Now we’re going to get dark. I mean really dark. After the Crisis on Infinite Earths even that saw the end of the multiverse because the higher-ups in DC found the alternate continuities and universes silly and confusing (with one of the universe having Captain Carrot and his Zoo Crew I can see their point). All of the titles for the main books like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman started brand new with new histories and new takes on the character. These new takes meant a transition to more realistic situations and settings (well as realistic as you can get in a world with a bullet-proof alien that can defy gravity and move mountains). John Byrne wasted no time in throwing one hell of a morally grey situation at Superman. In a pocket universe that resembled the Silver Age earth-1, Superboy had died and general Zod and his cohorts ended up rendering that version of earth lifeless. Superman used gold Kryptonite to take their powers but they threatened to get them back and come to his earth and lay waste to everything. Seeing as they already killed 5 billion people, it’s safe to say they would make good on their threat. So Superman ended up executing them with green Kryptonite and it ended up haunting him.

A lot of the arguments that the pro-Bernie anti-Biden folks put forth sound like GOP talking points. Some popular ones are that title has dementia or that he’s a pedophile. Those are not exactly high minded, and not surprisingly echo what we saw in 2016 (i.e. that Hillary was secretly ill and also that she was part of a child trafficking ring). Unfortunately some progressive Democrats are buying into the same Russian style trolling as four years ago, so I guess that has not changed much. Perhaps the more disturbing case they make though is that Biden is basically no different than Trump, that they are part of the same establishment run by a secret cabal to benefit corporations and the elite few etc. But this is a fairly transparent attempt to suppress voter turnout basically, along the lines of my vote won’t make any difference, so I might as well stay home or do a protest vote. That obviously benefits Trump, which is the whole point. Now they might say that they don’t like Biden’s policies and that he’s not progressive like Bernie.

I doubt most of them even know much about Biden’s policies, though he’s got plenty of title on his website for anyone who is interested. Regardless, Bernie can have all these exciting progressive visions, but if he was elected President he’d be constrained by the Senate just like Biden or any other Democrat would. IMO he’d probably get even less done than Biden could in the end due to their relationships and their willingness to compromise (something Biden will no doubt be faulted for). Remember that even when the Democrats had a big majority in the Senate (along with control of the House and the White House) they were barely able to squeak through the watered down ACA. President Bernie would have zero chance of getting Medicare for All done. I’m not sure that Biden has much of a shot at getting the public option done either for that matter, but it’s far more likely to happen than the aforementioned pipe dream. They also fault Biden for saying that he’d veto Medicare for All. But he’ll never get that opportunity anyway. And if you could get the House plus 60 senators to pass that, then in that fantasy world Biden would be unlikely to veto it since it would obviously have so much support.

Without subjecting the reader to my previous answers here on title , I’ll just mention that neither Biden nor Sanders were even close to my top picks in the primaries. Based on the historical poll numbers, Biden was not the first choice for most Democrats, at least not until everyone else had dropped out other than Bernie and Gabbard. Also I don’t live in a swing state, which makes it easier to rationalize voting third party (assuming there’s even a decent third-party candidate). However this year I will vote for the Democrat, presumably Biden, because even though my state is not in play, I want to see the Democrat win by as big a margin as possible. Biden says his vision is “that every American has a right to the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to affordable, quality health care”, and part of this is having a public option. Trump’s health care plan (as of this week anyway) is to petition the Supreme Court to completely invalidate the ACA, right in the middle of the pandemic no less, and in fact during the same week that we’re seeing record high numbers of new cases again. I understand that incrementalism is not very popular with a lot of progressives, but to say there’s no difference between these two candidates is just buying into tin foil hat nonsense.

Trump didn’t get this from the people, the way Biden is. Sure he got a lot of title from Hollywood. But actors are professional liars. So I give them no credibility. Kathy Griffin, head on plate, Madonna burn down the Whitehouse. However he got this kind of treatment by the press at the helicopter, at press conferences, at the wall, at N Korea, at Impeach 45 political witchhunts, at Russia Russia Russia, at half screen death counts, etc. The media had nothing good to say. I would say the media has a louder voice than thousands at a sporting event. So, simply accept that the left brought this upon themselves. Simply listen to the way the media frames issues. Under Trump, it was “This administration” “Under Trump” “All happening on Trumps watch”. With Biden’s overwhelming issues, we hear, “The democrats need a win” “The democrats are in disagreement” “The the border is a mess, but the democrats are doing all they can” “It is the unvaccinated’s fault”. Notice the clear tone difference? Never, “this administration” “Bidens watch”.

Do you want democracy or not? The people have chosen Biden; until such time as it becomes explicit that is no longer so, deal with it. One of the differences that defines the Democratic Party from the Republican Party is the freedom of title. Right now, the Republican Party is in thrall to a budding dictator. People aren’t even allowed to challenge Trump; even when he’s acting at his most idiotic, like a complete moron, people have to go along with everything he says or else risk getting fired. Biden had several challengers, and he overcame all of them. Granted, he did it in the end, but a win’s still a win, right? But what’s the situation in sports? If a person or team comes back from behind to win an overwhelming victory, it’s still a victory, right? In horse racing if Nadal (back when he was racing) comes back from behind to win against King Guillermo, he’s still the winner, right? You don’t disqualify Nadal just because he was behind King Guillermo, at one point in the race. Last night, if Boyer had come back from behind in that NASCAR race to beat Hamlin, he still would have won, right? It doesn’t matter that Hamlin was ahead for most of the race, a win is still a win. In a snowboard cross race, if someone beats an experienced pro like Nate Holland or Lindsey Jacobellis, their victory is still a victory, right? In sports, if a team in the NFL or anywhere else mounts a huge comeback to come from behind, what matters is that they won. It doesn’t matter how many point the other guy was ahead by, the only thing that matters is that you win.

Americans who still believe the 2020 presidential election was rigged feel that title because trump has yet to concede that he lost to President Joe Biden. Normally, presidents concede within twenty-four hours, maybe two days. Hillary conceded within a day. This is typical of how it works after the incumbent loses the election, and then the transfer of power is planned, Trump did none of those things because his desperate grab at power was thwarted by the voters, the millions of Americans who simply couldn’t take his brand of hatred and racism, not to mention failed policies. The only thing he could ever hang his hat on was the economy, which was robust after eight years of Obama, he didn’t have to inherit the mess that Democratic presidents do after 4–8 years of a Republican. Don’t believe me? Here’s the proof.

My mom had a collection of Jim Nabors albums, and she always played them because they made her feel good. He was such a good singer and the title were nice. Then the rock Hudson rumor happened. All the Jim Nabors albums disappeared. I never heard them again. I don’t know if it damaged Jim Nabors career. I doubt this will damage Jason Aldean’s career much. Something similar happened to the Dixie Chicks and their careers did suffer. So, it all depends, I guess. Every entertainer is subject to public opinion. That’s just the nature of the business. They can say what they want, but there will always be a reaction. They can always hire professionals to manage public statements for them, if they want, I suppose. Conservative entertainers or not.

I have compromised a lot on my personal favourite veep pick to remain excited. I went from Warren to Stacey Abrams to Nina Turner to Karen Bass, anyone resembling a title . But it became Kamala, favourite from the beginning and the only thing I could be positive about was he fact that it was not Susan Rice, supporter of the most terrible wars and foreign policy decisions of the last 30 years. But it reinforced my ideas that the Bernie wing was being crushed in favour or the 20 Never Trumpers out there with money and white suburbanites. That the democratic party was a party that supported making Nicole Wallace the heart of MSNBC, A party that gives AOC ONE minute to speak while Jon Kasich gets a full slot. Btw why can John Kasich speak from Ohio, but not Sherrod Brown, someone who actually has support? With Kamala the establishment has put their own interests above winning the election. She is from California, a safe blue state, did so terribly during the primary that she had to drop out before Iowa, changed her campaign slogan with the season and had to do a Zoom call to know what her campaign was about. Think about this: Can you think of one person out there who was not gonna vote for Biden, but is now that they picked Kamala? Their project of sucking the life out of small-town America, screwing over the working class, coalescing around white suburbanites and never-Trumpers is now complete.

My criticism of title is primarily that she has no values or convictions. In 2017 she acted progressive because she thought that was politically smart, then the donors told her like don’t do that, she became a standard-issue Democrat, now she worked on some progressive legislation but then voted against a bill that would reallocate money from the army elsewhere. The only thing she will do in her further career is looking after herself. So in November I can’t vote which is fantastic, because then I will not have to make a choice between 4 more years of sell-out and cultural legislation I am against, or 12 more years of sell-out and cultural legislation I somewhat support. I wish everyone who does have to make a choice good luck!

I think it’s wrong to do this. Just because you can do a thing doesn’t mean you should do a title. I could be a terrorist if I wanted to but what good would it do? None. Although the concepts are easy to understand you still need the skills to pull it off. For example, Trump used Steve Bannon – co-founder of Cambridge Analytica to generate the campaign slogans like MAGA and Lock Her Up. These slogans were created by CA after researching what would have the most effect on large groups of people. They discovered that 3 word memes with ideally only one syllable per word were most effective in manipulating the target audience. Personally, I am not invested enough in the potential outcomes to make this work. It’s just no me. Finally, I know that if you live by the sword, you die by the sword. So, if you live by manipulation you will end up being taken out by the same weapons you used on other people. Like a journalist whose career is wrecked by some media scandal, or an advisor to the president who is jailed for not answering questions. I’m no martyr to greed. No thanks.

Joe Biden finished law school in the late 1960s, lectured at that school for a title of years then by 1969 he ran for office. Since then, he has sat in the halls of our Federal Government, sucking up US taxpayers’ money, selling bribes, enriching himself and his sons, again at taxpayer expense. This could be marginally forgivable if again, we could point to ONE positive achievement. But he signed us up for the Iraq War (again, Bush cant be the only one we blame). During a time where black citizens are protesting their treatment in the criminal justice system, Biden was the chief architect of half the bills that are responsible for the discrepancy of justice to include the 1994 crime bill, three strikes your out, etc.

First of all, this is not a first amendment issue as HOAs are not the title and are not required to give you the freedoms expressed in the constitution. They are private organizations. HOAs are governed by federal law, state law, local law, bylaws, covenants, conditions and restrictions (CCRs) and finally design guidelines. Federal trumps everything, design guidlines are trumped by everything. Our design guidelines used to spell out specifically what kind of signs could be displayed. They could only be a certain size and could only be out the day of an event. Political signs had to be a certain size and could only be up 2 weeks prior to the election, and 1 day after. We rewrote our design guidelines to make them easier to understand. In doing so we found that we allowed signs in our guidelines, but our CCRs explicitly excluded all signs except those required by law. We also allow and dictate the size of real estate signs. So HOAs can ban all signs and they can issue violations and fines for them.

Now, on to the title regarding banning Trump signs and not other political signs. If your HOA has a sign rule, it will spell out (or should) the exact standards for signs. They must be no bigger that 24″x18″ and may only be out on certain days for example. They may also address offensive signs, and how they are not allowed, although this could also be an assumption. However, if you have a Trump/Pence MAGA 2020 sign on your front lawn that has no obscene language (I realize Trump and MAGA are obscene to some but that doens’t count) and it is within the guidelines set forth by your HOA, then it should be allowed. If it is obscene or bigger than the standards, then it will be banned. If those with Biden or anti-Trump signs are within guidelines, they should be allowed, and outside, they should be banned. If the only difference between the signs is that one has Trump’s name and one has Biden’s name, and one was banned and the other wasn’t then that is selective enforcement by the HOA and they can be sued by you. However, unless the HOA comes out and says one is allowed and the other isn’t it’s hard to know who has been violated and who hasn’t. Some people fix their violations immediately, and some go to the fining process and have their house forclosed upon.

Why does he have to “deal with” them? What do you want him to do? Why not just let them be and title stop trying to control everyone else? If the vaccine is effective and you get vaccinated there is a minuscule chance that you’ll get COVID and if you do get it you will almost certainly get better. Even if you don’t get vaccinated you probably won’t get sick from COVID and if you do you’ll probably get better. It mostly only kills people who are already unhealthy or old. If you’re young and healthy you have a minuscule chance of getting COVID in the first place and an excellent chance of surviving if you do. Whether you’re young and healthy or old and unhealthy you should take every precaution you can. If you believe that getting vaccinated is the way to go then get vaccinated. Take care of yourself and don’t worry about other people not behaving the way you think they should. Maybe you’ve heard the expression “Your can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” The vaccine is the water. It’s available. If people want it they’ll get it. If they don’t then calling them names like “anti vaxxer” won’t help. If someone has gotten all the usual vaccinations but is hesitant to get one particular vaccine because they believe it’s not safe because it’s been fast tracked to be released without all the usual precautions they are not anti vaxxers. They’re just hesitant about that one for various reasons.

Some people said that they weren’t going to get it, if it came from title and those people were encouraged to feel that way by the woman who is now Vice President. They weren’t anti vaxxers. They were anti Trumpers. Funny thing is that it’s the same vaccine but now that we have a different President they’re calling other people names because now under the new President some people are hesitant to get the same vaccine that they (the anti Trumpers) were refusing to get under the previous President. Some of those same people were calling Trump a dictator but now that Biden is President they want him to act like a dictator. Too bad there’s not a vaccine for Trump Derangement Syndrome. They would probably refuse that one though so I guess it doesn’t make any difference. In my opinion the worst thing about COVID is not the disease itself but the harm that has been inflicted upon the nation by the reaction to it. This includes not only the damage to the economy, including irreparable harm done to small businesses, the inconvenience of stores and restaurants that used to be open 24/7 and now have reduced hours or are closed forever, but the loss of freedom. The loss of freedom is the biggest thing. It’s disheartening to see how easily and willingly some people give it up. Once freedom is lost it’s difficult if not impossible to get it back.

Whenever anyone who’s in the grips of title decline that’s as obvious as what is happening to old Joe. it’s never a good Idea to allow them to run your country or the premier law enforcement agency like the FBI. Those who argue against removing this lunatic from office should be closely scrutinized as they must be conspiring with a foreign power to overthrow the seat of government, unless they are as bat shit crazy as Joe Biden. Just take a look at the Honorable Lisa Monaco, or the Hon. Lucy Koh, how these individual’s landed their job’s has got to be a conspiracy in itself. Where do they find these people? Nobody is that tyrannical unless they have been conditioned to be, or should I say endocrine to be so? These ladies have no idea of the meaning of the word justice, It’s a totally foreign concept to both of them and these are judges? Wanna know what’s wrong with the United States government? Well here they are, and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
