I'm getting so old.....and being a liberal just trying to survive “Mike and Don's Pandemic” in BatkoPatch, USA....maybe the “We Are All going to Die or Maybe Not going to Die Daily Bulletins from Matt & Co” sould be Color Coded .......not just a myriad of hand hand-picked numbers that on any one day seem to get churned into the big not so pretty picture and lost…...I mean do I need to dig a cellar and fill it full of pumpkin's and squash or will the milkman still be delivering eggs this fall.....or maybe one of those meter thingys with a big red arrow.....like the Pants on Fire on thing....or Pandemic Alerts like Amber Alerts…..I mean we have spent all that money on that Gunfire locator….you’d think everyone in the community would know in real time at least the direction of our survival…..not just reading it some RT sponsor FaceBook group or a TwitterFeed…or on TicTok …

You don’t even know what ideology you fall under. That is so sad you poor woman or man. You are a leftist/socialist, not a liberal. Google it so you will maybe understand the distinctions. As for your disjointed ramblings, dementia is a terrible thing. There are medications that can help you.

" As for your disjointed ramblings, dementia is a terrible thing. There are medications that can help you." WELL, IT IS FINALLY OBVIOUS! POSTING AT 3 AM IS AN OBVIOUS ADDICTION TO CRACK, COKE, METH, OR ALL THREE. WHOO HOO I KNEW THERE WAS A CONNECTION TO YOU AND TRUMP WHO ALSO TWEETS IN THE WEE HOURS---ONLY HE CAN AFFORD THE DRUGS

@cajones, or maybe Veritas has a job that involves shift work, working in a global capacity or they just prefer working "non-standard hours, so they are up at that time- sans illegal stimulants?

I could say that by posting at 10:26 AM, you obviously don't work- would that be right? If not, wouldn't I be guilty of the same non-sequitur you proposed?

It's actually sad that your alter-ego Mr.KnowNothingAtAll comes out with more fervor lately; in reviewing your posts, it's YOU that appears to be on some sort of drug (likely meth since you probably can't afford the good stuff)- with the constant barrage of ad hominem attacks, mixing of UPPER and lowercase text, often confused and disheveled musings, you should know there are free resources at your disposal to help overcome your demons...

You know casones, you are a funny lil man (or woman) sometimes. The fact that you think I am up at 3 am posting a comment while under the influence made me chuckle. If you must know, GPC is right, I had to get up that early to travel to work. I know, work is most likely a foreign concept to you, but that is the reason nonetheless. The fact that you immediately assumed I was under the influence of some type of stimulant leads me to believe you have experience in this area. GPC is right again, it sounds like you need help and just know that it is there for you whenever your ready to man up.
