THE SKEPTIC ARENA

Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

Trump and his cronies are taking care of the Big Boys first.

the number one priority of Republicans is to make the rich ...

Here is a comparison of the age distributions of Covid-19 cases
in Italy, where they are only testing people who show symptoms,
and South Korea, which has broad testing.
It shows that there are a whole lot of adults (aged 20-29)
who feel fine but are very contagious.

Republican Congressman (and Trump lapdog) ... Devin Nunes



Devin Nunes puts people at risk by pimping for the rich ...

even during a pandemic

Money quote:
"Let’s not hurt the working people in this country
that are relying on wages and tips
to keep their small business going."
"

He gave himself away when he tried to claim
that small business owners rely on wages and tips.

See what he did there?

He wanted to make it sound like he's for the people,
but he carelessly gave away his true motivation.

Trump and his cronies try to sneak cuts to social security and medicare into ...

the emergency Coronavirus bill

Even in the midst of a deadly worldwide pandemic,
Republicans put bank accounts over human lives:

Trump insisted that he wanted to include
a payroll tax cut in this package.


Why did Trump and his cronies want that?

Because a payroll tax cut until the end of the year
would cut funds that would go to Social Security and Medicare.

BUT IT GETS WORSE ...

Trump tries to block states from using Medicaid to help fight the Coronavirus

Trump finally yields to mounting pressure

UPDATE 3/14/20

The House of Representatives passed Coronavirus legislation.
But to fight the spread of a worldwide pandemic,
even providing funds for sick Americans who are unable to work ...

was like pulling teeth for many Republicans

We are dealing with pure evil here.
But keep voting Republican. The rich sure do appreciate ...

How much does it cost to go out and kill animals with Trump Jr.?

about $10,000

Here’s the money quote from the article: Safari Club International said,
"hunting contributes significantly to conservation efforts.

They actually tried to claim that
because they contribute money to conservation efforts,
they are the good guys and we should all just ignore all the dead animals
and let them go on satisfying their sick lust for blood.

You can't make this stuff up
