    Lost on the frontline: 922 US healthcare worker deaths are under investigation by the Guardian and KHN. Did they have to die?

    As of 11 August, our journalists have profiled 167 health workers and included them in our database. Read their stories below.

    I hope Biden does the right thing and chooses a candidate based on actual qualifications and not gender/race. (Although in this day and age, I highly doubt it)

    “That is reparations,” Atkins said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

    “I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”

    Racism ties for the second thing in the world that gets me angry, but this is seriously twisted and not right. Looters aren't going to rent U-Haul Trucks and ram cars into a Tesla dealership to 'survive'

    It's one extreme left vs extreme right. I consider myself in the middle and really hoping I'm not an endangered species.

    Why Is China Coming After Americans Like Me in the U.S.?

    WASHINGTON — On Thursday, July 30, I fell asleep watching reruns of “Law and Order.” The next morning, I woke up a fugitive.

    Chinese state television said that the Hong Kong authorities had issued arrest warrants for six activists who promote democracy for that supposedly semi-autonomous region.

    I was one of the six. The charges? “Inciting secession” and “colluding with foreign powers” — part of the National Security Law imposed on July 1 by the Chinese Communist Party. Both crimes are punishable by up to life in prison.

    It doesn’t matter that I’ve been an American citizen for 25 years — having left Hong Kong in 1990 to live in the United States.
    I had violated Article 38 of the new law, which states: “This Law shall apply to offenses under this Law committed against the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region from outside the Region by a person who is not a permanent resident of the Region.”

    In other words, every provision of this law — which was concocted in Beijing and enacted without the Hong Kong legislature — applies to everyone outside of Hong Kong. Nobody is beyond the law’s reach, not me in the United States, and certainly not the estimated 85,000 Americans living and working in Hong Kong itself.

    Despite what you think that is happening. The issue has been if you are not a certain demographic-you are automatically unqualified. Resume be DANGED.

    You are not picking the best person if you exclude folks. We have had women get named VP candidates before so its not a new thing.


    Also not every black person agrees with the antics of BLM and ESPECIALLY that group that feels entitled to loot.

    I like what Hillary said. Something along the lines of "don't take medical advice from a man who looked directly at an eclipse".

    All the top choices are very qualified, so that is a non issue.

    I would also not take what one person associated with BLM says as a stance for the whole cause.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!
