Re: 2020 General Election

BTW I think this is a totally different type of thing this year. Even more unpredictable than usual. I think Republicans have decided that they can't win if it is a free and fair election so they are devoting their efforts to voter suppression. And they have a President contributing to the effort. H...

Re: 2020 General Election

I don't know what to make of this but it's kind of interesting. If you go to the same point prior to election day 2016 and look at the 538 election forecast it has Clinton's "chance" to win at about the same place as it has Biden't "chance" to win right now. On October 11, 2016, the forecast had Cli...

Re: Joe Biden gaffe and verbal bungles watch

Well...I think we can say Trump doesn't have dementia. Or at least he didn't as of when he took that screening test. But it is kind of ridiculous for Trump fans to rag on Biden about cognitive issues because it's obvious that, if either of the two has cognitive issues, it's Trump. Note that Trump w...

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

There is a problem with the steroid they are giving Trump: U.S. President Donald Trump is being treated for COVID-19 with a steroid that is recommended for severe cases of the illness and that comes with risks of serious side effects, including mood swings, aggression and confusion. So...with Trump....

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

I don't wish him death, but I couldn't care less if things take a turn for the worse and he dies. Too many people have died who actually give a sh*t about this country and contributed to it in meaningful ways to give a damn about Trump's health. But I don't want him to die; I want to see him in jai...

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

BTW, let's say you know someone has COVID-19 and is symptomatic. Early on in the course so you know he is excreting lots of the virus.

Would you like to sit in a sealed vehicle with him for 30 minutes or so while you wear a mask just so he could ride around and wave at people?

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

BTW this whole thing about Trump being a "relentless' worker is nonsense. The guy sits around and watches TV and/or plays around on Twitter. He doesn't actually do the work necessary to inform his decisions and we all know it.
