“Bernie is tired of the mainstream media covering gossip instead of real issues.
Sen. Bernie Sanders didn’t hold back when he was asked Wednesday about when he would make a final decision on whether to suspend his 2020 presidential campaign.
“I’m dealing with a f—ing global crisis,” Sanders told CNN’s Manu Raju. “Right now, I’m trying to do my best to make sure that we don’t have an economic meltdown and that people don’t die. Is that enough for you to keep me busy for today?”
Sanders lost a series of vital Democratic primaries on Tuesday night in Florida, Illinois, and Arizona to former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Nancy Pelosi is missing out on a HUGE opportunity to do something good for the American people.
Behind a flurry of activity in Washington, Tuesday was an increasingly urgent problem for a nation grappling with the novel coronavirus pandemic: the growing risk that millions of businesses and households won’t be able to pay their everyday bills—rent, payroll, utilities—as business activity grinds to an unprecedented halt.

“Trump is throwing around the idea of giving Americans universal basic income.
As the U.S. is scrambling to deal with the forced shuttering of restaurants, bars, theaters, and other businesses, even some fiscally conservative Republicans agree that giving money directly to people might be the best response. Today, Senator Mitt Romney proposed sending every U.S. adult a $1,000 check to help with short-term obligations—rent, groceries, whatever it may be. The idea sounded familiar to followers of the 2020 Democratic primary race, specifically those who have watched the businessman Andrew Yang—who ran an outsider campaign based on what he sees as the need for universal basic income, or UBI.

The EQF Community Links Page has been updated.
I’ve added some nice additions.
I have a huge backlog of URLs to go through, and vet for inclusion…The work around here is never over…in fact, it just keeps growing.
I do appreciate those who alert me of links that have gone bad…not that it’s happened very many times…but when a links page gets this large, hunting down broken links is a chore.
A Little Side Note:
I’ve noticed the Male Sexualists suffering some degree of censorship, even here on WordPress.
Far be it from me to tell anyone else how to behave…
…I just know from experience and what I’ve witnessed…that a lot of times in life, especially for those of us who are marginalized…we have to reign in our own emotions and disconnect from them, if we want to have a place on mainstream platforms.
If you let your emotions and anger dictate how you blog [etc.]…you’ll probably end up with a blog [etc.] taken down by it’s host.
One of my primary hesitations in fully embracing the Male Sexualist community [and adding many of them at the EQF Community Links], is that I’ve witnessed a lot of degradation and vulgar bile towards various people…
Perhaps those people deserved a stern, derogatory response…but here is the thing…
…This is not a level playing field…and “you” are the odd man out, who will not be treated fairly…Which is why “you” have to be better than they ever could be, just to have a chance to make any meaningful response.
…That’s just something to think about, if you don’t want to be kicked off of a platform.

“Don Jr. is infected with the same Twitter disorder as Daddy Trump.
Donald Trump Jr. said in a recent interview that he has been told by his father to dial down some of his rhetoric on Twitter.
In an excerpt of his interview with “Axios on HBO” that was released on Sunday, Axios co-founder Jim VandeHei asked Trump Jr. whether his father has ever told him to “cool it” on Twitter.
“I have gotten that phone call before,” Trump Jr. responded. “It’s like, you know, picking up the phone. ‘This is the White House operator.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, boy. What did I do now?
