CoViD-19 San Diego & California Stats | 28 New Community Outbreaks In 2 Days | Pelosi Says Squashing Virus Must Be The Goal

I told you I'd post my voting recommendations today, but I need another day or two. I'm just not feeling it today after watching the Pelosi media briefing, but if you must know now, For Mayor of San Diego, I'm Gloria over Bry, in spite of his past support for the devastating Jacobs plan in Balboa Park, I still think he's light years ahead of her as a person and candidate and his vision for the City; Gomez over Jacobs because billionaires shouldn't be able to buy Congressional seats for their heiresses though I'm sure Sarah is a nice person, and Duran for the D3 city council seat because she stood out above the other candidate at the local debate held in North Park earlier this year. There are some that aren't in my district, but I urge you to support Ammar Campa-Najar for Congress if you're in that area, and Terra Lawson-Remer for County Board of Supervisors if you're in that district. And here's a repaste of where I stand for the state propositions: Yes on 14, Yes on 15, Yes on 16, Yes on 17, Yes on 18, Yes on 19, Undecided on 20, Yes on 21, No on 22, Undecided on 23, Yes on 24, Undecided on 25

As I said, I made the mistake of watching Nancy Pelosi's media briefing and it is so depressing. Basically she says that the reason negotiations for a stimulus package have stopped is because the Democrats are demanding a portion of the money be used specifically to increase the T3 Strategy nationwide: Test, Trace, Treat with the goal of squashing the virus while the White House wants a blank check to spend how they see fit and maintain that no national plan is needed. Obviously that's a very one-sided view, but I fear not deviating much from reality, since this administration has proven to be nothing but destructive at every turn and doesn't think it's something to squash at all but something we should just live with. They don't like Dems telling them they have to spend money on the 99% of people and not corporations, and certainly not those of us in the lower 20%. In short, don't expect any relief before the election. 

I also watched watched Michigan's Governor speak about the plot to kidnap her. Can this just be done? My 2020 bingo card is blacked out.
