Just when you think the levels of incompetence, greed and corruption in America couldn't get any worse...BAM, the world of Trumpistan finds another way to shock and lower this country further into his personal cesspool.

“Illegally appointed Acting Secretary Wolf who has now been nominated for the position.”

He is not Senate confirmed and beyond the appointment grace period as well as an moral and ethical ghoul, in addition to the rest of it.

This is what governing looks like. Republicans should try it sometime.

An extraordinarily compelling reason to vote for Democrats in November. Of course it won't reach the Senate floor until Moscow Mitch isn't Majority Leader anymore. :registertovote: :voteblue2:

What's striking about the modern GOP is exactly their absolute inability to govern in a positive manner.

What was the last proactive measure passed by the GOP? Medicare Part D?

Thank you once again, Governor Wolf, for keeping Pennsylvanians safe.

Unfortunately, we've learned very decidedly that people left to their own devices in a serious crisis won't act properly by at least a third, maybe more. :pa:

@YinzPittsburghers There are enough votes to override Wolf's veto, which means that a lot of Democrats need phone calls right now.

I'm so tired of the grifting and cronyism of this administration. They're put themselves in an elite group accountable to nobody. We need to hold them to account. :voteblue2:

Why scientists are so worried about this glacier

Man-made climate change is warming the planet's atmosphere and oceans, and the effects are being felt the most at the poles. In Antarctica, home to the largest chunk of ice on earth, ice shelves and glaciers are beginning to collapse, and one in particular could spell disaster.

The Thwaites Glacier, in West Antarctica, has retreated more than 14 kilometers in the last two decades as warm ocean water undermines it.

@TonyStark @artilectzed I quit thanking them for doing the bare minimum of decency a long time ago, even though some people want is to pile praise all over them for it.

They are wholly undeserving of any, ever.

Meanwhile small businesses die on a daily basis because they were given an 8 week program to get through what has now been 6+ months of a pandemic.

200,000 people and counting are dead from Trump's mismanagement of the entire government.

Pentagon used taxpayer money meant for masks and swabs to make jet engine parts and body armor.
Shortly after Congress passed the Cares Act, the Pentagon began directing pandemic-related money to defense contractors.
