It wasn’t too long ago that the news was filled with reports of violent protests in Portland, Oregon; Seattle; Washington, D.C., and other cities around the nation. And then … silence. Networks and newspapers are going wall-to-wall with analyses of every syllable uttered by President Donald Trump’s doctors as he is treated for COVID-19.

Of course, that’s news, but in the meantime, other news — like a continuing plague of violence in those cities and elsewhere — has virtually disappeared from the coverage.

Nothing to see here folks except desperation and hypocrisy from good old Byron.

Democrats are cowards. Why won't they answer the questions on whether they support packing the US Supreme Court or giving DC and Puerto Rico statehood.

Does anyone but me miss Antone? At least he was entertaining, not the same old communist dribble we get from Natives5.

I miss my son too, lol. Wish I would have known I was a communist before I gave so much to this country that I love. I never question your love of this country or your Christianity; I just realize we have different views and respect that. Stay classy, Fo6.
