  1. "Stocks are on track to wrap up their worst week since March" "U.S. reports record number of new COVID-19 cases" Nice Friday before election headlines.
  2. I was watching the series pulling a few tubes and just BUGGING out on it. Heard some phish too. At shows it used to be a game to call the song first. Me and mama were like family feud.
  3. This mentality is like when you chop the hot dog into several pieces for the kid "so he has more". Plus it's not expanding his base in the least. It's self pleasuring.
  4. Or fiscally responsible. There is almost no evidence of that being true in decades. They get in office and it’s a smash and grab job from the get go. One might call it looting on a grand scale .
  5. Explain Republicans getting smoked by grass roots fundraising. I’d think enthusiasm would translate to funding.
  6. Or maaaaybe we just have some serious late break to Biden going on.
  7. Confident in the electorate. Not at all confident in the "poll watchers", the USPS, the lawyers and the Supreme Court.
  8. Tough week for Outlaw country. Billy Joe was aquitted for shooting a man in the face in a bar parking lot due to self defense. Billy Joe said, "I shot him right between the Mother and the F*****. Did him up right." I always thought that was the baddest line I ever heard.
  9. Sorry I forgot where I was too. Just saw the post and went all Kermit the frog typing meme.
  10. He refuses to comply with the legitimate oversight powers of congress tipping the balance of checks and balances. He appoints "acting" department heads and other key positions that are supposed to be approved by congress in and end around of congressional oversight. He has profited directly from government in ways too numerous to count. He has villified a hiuge portion of the country who presumably he should be serving. He refuses to do the legitimate work of the presidency in reading briefings, showing up to work (executive time). He has legitimized certain radical right wing anti government forces like the proud boys and oath keepers. He has nominated judges that are deemed unqualified by the ABA who are then approved by a complicit senate. He has emboldened our enemies and alienated our allies on the national stage. He has appointed department heads that seek to destroy the missions of the very departments they head. He has politicised the actions of otherwise apolitical agencies. By Robert Muellers own words he knew the Russians were working to help him in an American election, he welcomed that help, then worked to cover it up during investigations. He has solicited help from outside governments in seeking political advantage for which he was impeached. He has engaged in a staggering level of nepotism for unqualified relatives at the highest levels. He has waived security clearance checks for an numerous people including Jared Kushner. He withheld important information about the Corona virus at the early critical stages. He has encouraged behavior antithetical to controlling the virus. He has told over 20,000 lies to the American people. And then there's just the all around toxicity. I mean that's just off the top of my head.
  11. Man if you look at Europe’s numbers they are doing a lot worse than we are even. Read somewhere they are a couple weeks ahead. Hard to see avoiding 100k cases/day.
  12. I agree but there are a number of wildcards at play this year that don't get measured by polls. Potential high numbers of rejected mail in ballots, day of turnout due to covid, Nov 3 weather, possible intimidation/violence at the polls, legal maneuvers, etc.
  13. I was planting the garden during the lockdown period in late april early may. Kind of lost my mind. Had lots of homegrown stuff augmented by the weekly Saturday famers market trip. That and an ungodly amount of walking. It was two pronged in that it felt like one of the few things I had actual control of at the time. And the exercise/endorphins where sustaining during an amazingly stressful time. Averaged over 20,000 steps through like July, dialed it back down to 15,000-17,000 or so. Two three plus mile walks a day. I am my own neighborhood watch. I Do HR for 120 plus and 330 plus in the summer so I felt tremendous responsibility for the safety and welfare of people way beyond my immediate family. I have worked more exposure/covid positive scenarios than I can count at this point. Run a gym, art center, after school program, sports leagues, special events amongst other things and a large water park in the summer. Almost everyday something. Paid tens of thousands of dollars paid leave through the FFCRA. On the ropes but still throwing punches. Surprisingly few dick customers tho. So thats been nice.
  14. He speaks like a young sleepy child. This is about a perfect metaphor. Use em and leave em hanging. By the time President Trump finished speaking to thousands of supporters at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield on Tuesday night and jetted away on Air Force One, the temperature had plunged to nearly freezing. But as long lines of MAGA-clad attendees queued up for buses to take them to distant parking lots, it quickly became clear that something was wrong. The buses, the huge crowd soon learned, couldn’t navigate the jammed airport roads. For hours, attendees — including many elderly Trump supporters — stood in the cold, as police scrambled to help those most at-risk get to warmth. At least seven people were taken to hospitals, according to Omaha Scanner, which monitors official radio traffic. Police and fire authorities didn’t immediately return messages from The Washington Post early Wednesday and declined to provide reporters on the scene with precise numbers of how many needed treatment.
