That makes sense - a school board that has schools in downtown Toronto should have a different set of rules than one hundreds of kilometres away in rural, northern Ontario in towns which may have no cases.

Trump needs everyone back at work so that he can claim to be the saviour of the economy - remember that idiot in Texas who said there are more important things than living? Yeah, we're back to that.
It's not dictated at the federal level, he's only trying to do so. Like many other instances, he's trying to turn the presidency into an absolute dictatorship, but again will be to no avail.
It's all done at the local level. Here in MA there are recommendations by the state board of education (which are being resisted by the Mass Teacher's Association), but the decisions on how to implement schooling this fall are made by local school districts individually.

Oh I know that it's not constitutionally or in practice, but the notion that all these Republicans are parroting what he's saying is absolutely insane. Imagine them being ok with Obama telling local schools that they must open! Even if he had no power to do so.

He will also be announcing next week, an order to protect our suburbs.

Seriously he has gone off into dementia town. And I’m loving every minute of it.

Seems like it’s getting a bit more play today. DHS head visited Portland yesterday and congratulated his patriots for taking back a city under siege...

While everyone's laughing about how his brain is fried or mocking the Goya thing he's sending little green men to Portland.

The stupidity is distraction.

Today, Cook political Report shifted their rating of 20 House Races across the country.

ALL 20 shifted to the Dems.
8 Solid R races shifted to Likely or Lean R. Leaving no solid R left on the table.

RBG has recurrent pancreatic cancer.

Very, very likely she doesn't make it to November. Terrifying.

Need to win the Senate and immediately expand and pack the SCOTUS.

Liver, not pancreas.

Still not good by any stretch, but less of a death sentence than pancreatic cancer.

I mean, clearly if there was a democrat (or even at least a human being) in the White House she'd be retired by now.
87, been through multiple cancer battles and other health issues.
I'm sure she takes pride in/loves her job but the woman's body can only take so much.
Hoping she can respond well to treatment, work 6 more months, then retire and have some healthy time left to enjoy.

They just clarified that she has lesions on her liver, not liver cancer, and it seems likely that the lesions are from her pancreatic cancer.

We must win the Senate.

Yes, metastasis to the liver. She is unfortunately living on borrowed time.

Even if the Senate is won, this could be McConnell's final act.

This is why the Democrats have to stop pretending like the GOP has any principles left and immediately expand and pack the court.

But everyone knows that you don’t replace SCOTUS nominees in an election year!

Just like you don't do campaign speeches from the rose garden.
