Re: Richard Kamischke's Letter to the Editor: To answer your questions, the right wing extremists in power now have known for decades that they and their deeply unpopular (and consistently failed) ideologies can not win at the voting polls without voter suppression, cheating, and widespread propaganda. A famous quote by Paul Weyrich, " As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."....pretty much says it all. In the case of Trump, the just-released Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee report concludes without a doubt that Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia extensively to influence the election in his favor, betraying the country to such an extent that he appears to be a Russian asset. Apparently, the Republican party believes they can only win major general elections through cheating, misinformation, voter suppression, and collusion with hostile foreign governments who want nothing more than to destroy our democracy.

Mueller report provided no information on Russian collusion, Trump won the election legally. You have been a sore loser ever since.

You really should check the facts before you post Trump/Barr lies.

" Mueller spent almost 200 pages describing “numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.” He found that “a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.” He also found that “a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations” against the Clinton campaign and then released stolen documents." https://time.com/5610317/mueller-report-myths-breakdown/

Getting facts from you is like a Dr Sues book all fiction. 2 years and millions of dollars for nothing. Just nothing. No charges. Zero.

You, Rottweiler and edwards1 might want to rethink your comments....."On March 22, 2019, the Special Counsel submitted their report to Attorney General William Barr. The investigation garnered 199 criminal charges, 37 indictments or guilty pleas, and 5 prison sentences." https://time.com/5556331/mueller-investigation-indictments-guilty-pleas/

No charges..... what don’t you understand about that fact. You live in a delusional name calling world only guided by your own opinion clouded in whatever you hear that you can bend to your narrative. Find a hobby... you need help.

Nonsence as usual

Re: Bill Cate's Letter to the Editor: Your information is not accurate.

"The state has now allocated nearly all of the $3.1 billion in Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) aid provided by Congress for 2020 for the state’s public health and safety response to the COVID-19 crisis and COVID-19-related assistance to schools, universities, colleges, local governments, critical workers, businesses, and individuals across the state. These distributions are all governed by limitations placed on the funding by current federal law (see below) and cannot be used for direct revenue replacement." https://www.michigan.gov/budget/0,9357,7-379-88616_100398---,00.html

Oh Kamischke what a bitter life you lead. Voter suppression...just another left wing strategy to try and tilt the election to Democrats. People can get to the polls...you just want it like Chicago where dead people can vote.
