Meanwhile, various Democrat secretaries of state around the country warn that November’s elections results could take anywhere from weeks to possibly months to compile with which to make the results known. Finally, California’s worst senator and current Democratic Party vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris says there is ‘no way she will trust any Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine if Trump is the one behind it.’ Wow. Speaking of Harris, recent polls swear that she and her running mate “Pro-China Joe” Biden lead Trump-Pence in national polls by 48.3-percent to 45.2-percent.

- 2020 Labor Day Monday A: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he ‘wants to investigate U.S. Postmaster General Louis Dejoy’s businesses before he came to hold his current posts.’ You go, Chuck, you go.

Speaking of the U.S. Navy, the Pentagon reports that the communist Chinese have the largest army, navy, coast guard, and air force what with 350 surface ships and submarines to our 293 and are continually adding to their numbers daily. They also have a large arsenal of intermediate missiles while the U.S. has few to none, due to restrictions the treaty between our nation and Russia imposed on our country. The Pentagon also reports the Chi-Coms will have the first unmanned stealth bombers in the world as will they double their stockpile of nuclear weapons which informs the world they plan on world domination. Not good- should have nuked them off the face of the planet back in the 1950s.
- 2020 Labor Day Monday B: Nathan Denofre, a man born without both legs below the knees, completed a canoe trip down the entire length of the Mississippi River. It required 109 days to conduct the trip, a voyage he did to help disabled U.S. vets via a charity called Courage Incorporated Org. Elsewhere, Los Angeles, California, reported the previous day it hit a record in its ongoing heatwave hitting 121 degrees. Wow. Meanwhile, reports hit the news that says 52-percent of young adults aged 19-29 live with one to both parents. Get your asses out of the house and go the f**k to work!
