Re: 2020 General Election

My vote is they are getting louder, with more ability to "spread their message" due to social media. Cut off their air time and it would die down. Unfortunately nothing sells advertising/clicks like a few nuts that are on the opposite side of your viewership. They can't really get much more fanatic...

Re: 2020 General Election

There is a reason they are zealots. :nod: Indeed. The WSJ has done a really good job since the start of August with some investigative articles about what went wrong at the start of the pandemic and where mistakes were made that made things worse. Trump gets his blame, as he should, but there's ver...

Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

My engineering/Calculus ones were pretty even across the board, next to no bias. My history and English professors were even in that they presented a good split of all sides of an argument. Had a couple of writing and speech professors that were definitely not and let it be know that certain topics...

Re: 2020 General Election

I’d post how Woodward’s new book is damning for Trump hiding the truth about Covid and more remarks about generals but something tells me it won’t matter. :| Each side is able to take from it what they want - those that hate Trump will say "he lied" or "he covered it up" and those that are Trump ba...

Oh FFS. It's only a month since Sturgis. Stop. Do the math. And what is "public health costs"? I took it as a projection. It could go down but it could also go up. That is a good way to take it. :coffee: Based on other peer-reviewed studies/research papers I have read in the past I would very much ...

Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

Nancy's asst. calls up the salon owner and demands that she open to do Nancy's coif. The salon owner says she isn't permitted to open. Nancy's asst. demands it. The salon owner submits. Nancy gets caught and blames the salon owner for setting her up. What a cunt. https://twitter.com/tomselliott/sta...

Re: Here We Go Again (Kenosha, WI)

It’s interesting how many people now buy into the commie/Marxist are coming conspiracy. Is it as bad as how many people have bought into the we have a Nazi in the White House conspiracy? The Democrats are admittedly a lot closer to marxism than the Republicans are to fascism. You can put lipstick o...

Then you get to hear all about the loser's conspiracies, possible recounts, etc, etc for a few months to a year, or 4 if Trump wins.
I am trying to think happy thoughts here, but you and 88 keep on trying to bring me down. :ohno: :D

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

This is getting in medical terminology/coding that I am not that great at parsing, but if you had a condition (along with its comorbidites) and were expected to only live out the week, but then caught COVID and died two days early, wouldn't the cause of death be the original condition, as that is w...

I agree as well. Everybody enters the world the same: wet, naked and screaming. What you do after that is up to you. Famous or great people were not that way before what ever made them great, they are considered great/powerful because they made a choice to build something (nations, companies, scien...

You didn't answer my question. I didn't ask for philosophy or theories. I asked for your opinion. Carlyle's main thrust is that great men were born that way. I disagree. I didn't say leaders were born, not made. You want to honestly sit there and tell me that visionaries, strong and powerful men HA...
