  1. Yeah but that was the party line in Minnesota, with the new vaunted phrase "without evidence", I heard Atlantic City claiming the same today. People usually act where they know the lay of the land and are comfortable. I'm willing to be proven wrong but to see that Mayor of St. Paul just lie yesterday, is ridicudlous
  2. What is the fascination to push the concept of these are "outside" people causing this?
  3. You don't have to and you shouldn't but my only point is, if people are truly racist, they'd fear fixed power more than this temporary lash out that fleeting. THAT is generational change.
  4. I really want to see black america thrive and succeed. I'm a white guy, but we've seen black people excel and rise across so many fields. What's going on hasn't worked and we also know historically, rioting does not work, it does not change anything, its a money shot and its done. I don't blame these people though, purely, its probably modeling behavior and it feels like your only recourse and as a young man I, and probably many of us here, had some kind of a destruction phase. Because when you're young, black or white, you get put in a car thats already rolling and you have no power, and you have no perspective of what takes an hour, or 1000 hours to build takes a minute to destroy. THAT is power. But its futile and fruitless when you run out of things to burn. You learn that with age I think. So the real power comes in building, things, careers, a job, a family, a life. So rioting, is a failed experiment. What I'd hope can be instilled is to take this energy of these young people to play the long game. Because white America is probably scared by 10,000 black rioters. But they'd be even more scared by 10,000 black lawyers and CEOs.
  5. Minny Mayor says we can't arrest everyone.... so lets just arrest no one
  6. What do they base this on? If you have tangible data, like cellphone pings or something, I'll listen, if its well over the baseline I'll entertain it And if it IS outsiders, then all the more reason to protect your damn city... this is some of most namby pamby nonsense leadership I've ever seen, the Minny Mayor is your introduction to Milienal leadership
  7. Where is the handwringing reserved for the lake of the ozarks kids?
  8. Was coming here to post this, this is outrageous why would this guy want to lead? This whole thing is gonna play like a commercial for trump, how do you abandon your city?
  9. I did not, but be ware, this will take you down to just the most minor different between just shaving your head with a razor and not, if you want more a crew cut, try it with the guard and you can always cut more. For the first time, I did it no guard and then used a razor to finish it off and take it all the way down. Yesterday I touched it up to just use the razor, I left a little peach fuzz mohawk on top which looks a little more normal than just shaving. It helps manage the widow peaks
  10. To me it’s just stupid optics, there’s plenty of more efficienct options in nyc right now, I suspect this is deblasio trying to generate a photo op after the trump-cuomo moves with Javits and the field hosptial ship
  11. Wow, now that you mention it, I wonder if Joe was "impersonating" that producer's walk to frame him
  12. Was Rev. Exotic ordained? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCgz9915wHw
  13. Its a grey area to be sure, but I don't like the whole entrapment process that went into busting him.
  14. Jeff was a snitch so he beats her by a nose
  15. I'd love to hear someone more precisesly qualifed or experienced but her answer to the question to me had every tell of a liar, and the disappearance languge of the will?
  16. Honestly Joe Exotic was framed and should be released...
  17. Trying to avoid spoilers, Joe Exotic telling funny annectdotes about someone's balls in the context where he's speaking and who he's talking in front of, is one of the greatest things you'll ever see
  18. I don't know, my perception is, and this may be all wrong, but I'd see the CDC as being a firewall of prevention and maybe the folks to do the post mortem for the future. I think were are a management and hopefully response /containment phase. Some of the hardest parts of processing this is thinking of an agency like the WHO, who was merely parroting the Chinese party line, who was wasting time and energy on addressing potential bigotry. The CDC, knowing they had broadened their mission to obesity, they had widened their scope to things like dealing with racism, and I haven't found if this is true but I haven't seen the report refuted, the allegation they were hosting transgender beauty pageants. These all seem like fine missions IF all of the disease in the world is cured. Otherwise it feels like a radical deviation from what I'd perceive their mission being and while I get they were secondary things, in all likelihood ( I do hope), but to me it demonstrates the eye was far from the prize. Stay in your lane, keep the super bugs out of america or as managed as possible, Obesity is terrible but the CDC is making one person one pound thinner.
  19. So Rhode Island is going to go door to door to find NYers But they're a sanctuary state
  20. Can we really trust anything out of China at this point? I’d be interested to see this from literally any other source
  21. Chinese plant joins the board? Yes, diseases can start anywhere, where do I go now to discuss probability? Have health rates not improved in the western world as we improved sanitation and cleanliness in our food production? Has food inspection not lead to a better product? As Chinese wet markets cleans the product in the same area they're selling it. Where people squeeze the product like its grapefruit in open air bins Yes tell me how lucky we are when they locked up a doctor who was spreading the word about it, tell me how fortunate we are that they denied person to person transmission. And I guess we should thank them for still allowing outgoing flights while this went on.
  22. That I don't know, but I'm assuming any information or knowledge of the market would be from the Chinese government so they initially alluded to this before trying to recraft the narrative. Occams razor to me was they didn't like the critique of their community and culture so they chose to obfuscate this but I believe SARS-1 was believed to have similar origins. I'm not, nor do I assume any of us are epidemiologists or micro biologists. I believe one of the leading researchers said its got very shared common traits with SARS-1 and doesn't show any signs of any manufacture as I'm sure we all heard speculated based on the Wuhan lab
  23. I tried to edit but it didn't take Man, I also don't bedgrudge the vacation, I think most jobs after 5 years should be 4 weeks or so, they keep the other wheels of the economy spinning and vacation keeps the whole workforce fresh in many ways
  24. I was a carrier one summer, it was a college job that I got hooked up with, and when I'd talk to the lifer's that was the one perk that kept most of them in the job so I don't begrudge them. This was 25 years ago so I didn't know if they still had that. That was a very stressful job actually, they tell you any mistake is essentially a federal offense and I get the "going postal" deal doing it with the mundane nature so I'm not coming down on them. That I can send a letter from NYC to Hawaii for 50 cents or whatever a stamp is to me an amazing bargain and I think they've been undercharging for years.
