In these stressful times, there are some important questions that must be asked and answered. Lack of information hampers the ability to provide meaningful answers to these questions.

These is great concern about the number of unemployed Americans, rivaling the totals from the 1930s. The unanswered question is “are many of the millions of unemployed former employees of companies covered by the relief package?” Companies received loans (which become grants) to hire back laid off workers. If funds were not used to re-hire, then there must be consequences for the company. If former employees were re-hired and these folks are also collecting unemployment benefits, this is criminal.

Data must be forthcoming to answer this question. Also, a list of fees paid to banks for processing the loans must be made evident. How much did the banks charge the government and was it reasonable?

A former staffer has charged Joe Biden with sexual assault. There is no evidence, so it is a he said-she said confrontation. My attitude is the same as it was for accusations against Judge Roy Moore in the 2018 Alabama race for the U.S. Senate, and against Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. I have two questions in all three cases. Why was no official complaint made when it happened, and why wait until the accused is running for office or about to be appointed to a high office?

States have ruled that visitors are not permitted in hospitals, to reduce the spread of the pandemic. Yet there are patients who are physically or mentally disabled and need a family member or caregiver to communicate for them. Why has there not been a waiver issued for such situations? A few states are being sued to allow this reasonable waiver to exist.

Recently, the president and some of his supporters, including a few whose last name is Trump, have claimed that during their administration, President Obama and Vice President Biden committed serious federal crimes. The accusations are stated without any real evidence. Attorney General Barr has proclaimed that he sees no criminal activity committed by the former president and vice president for which he is pursuing indictments. Democrats answer back with accusations of malpractice against President Trump. At a time when our nation requires strong bi-partisan cooperation and leadership, why have these national politicians placed party above national interest? That failure is the real crime!
