  1. I thought this was much better known. Have you ever heard the story about the time Nixon rode with Hunter S Thompson from a campaign event to the airport? HST & Nixon ride to airport
  2. Nixon visits the hippies It was not a planned and controlled event. Nixon, on an apparent whim, decided to go to the Lincoln Memorial in the pre-dawn hours.
  3. A few days after the Kent State massacre in 1970 Richard Nixon went to the Lincoln Memorial and talked to anti-war protestors.
  4. Seems to me if they don't require body cams be on all the time there's no point to having them at all.
  5. The only thing conservatives at the time liked about MLK is he wasn't Malcom X.
  6. It wasn't just the radical right, it was pretty much all of the mainstream right too.
  7. I'd guess that natural selection would favor mutations that make the virus more contagious and less deadly.
  8. I wish I had some good advice. Nothing has worked long term for me. Eat healthy Exercise Don't post at 3AM
  9. The only alternate explanation for the "extra" deaths I can think of is some people are dying from avoiding needed medical care because they want to avoid hospitals or other medical facilities. It seems unlikely all of the extra deaths would be due to that. To discuss this there some data/facts everyone accepts. ( if these statements are false I'd like to look the links saying so) 1. There are additional deaths this year compared to previous years. 2. The deaths attributed to covid-19 are fewer than the additional deaths by a statistically signigicant amount. What's the case for the additional deaths that doesn't include higher than reported covid deaths?
  10. How did the state athletic commission sanction this fight?
  11. How many deaths from covid-19 is in your best case scenarion? Last week I saw the 100-240K scenario. I saw one today in the WaPo with 60K by August 1. "The IHME’s estimate of 60,000 deaths takes us only to August and excludes any potential deaths that might occur in the fall and winter if the virus continues to spread without effective treatments or a vaccine." Even if the DOW gets to 90% of it's high, it seems very unlikely that unemployment will be at or below 5% by August 1. (or November 1st) Are we gonna end the "stay at home" edicts in most of the US May 1? Are we going to remove the travel bans? Open bars and restuarants? If we do, will people fly or go out to eat/drink at the same level as they did in February? Will they be able to afford to? IMO 60K dead people by 8/1 will outweigh the realistic economic best case for Trump's chances.
  12. Middle East Peace should be "This one goes to minus 11."
  13. I can answer those questions. 1. Jared is involved because he is married to the President's daughter. 2. In a word - NO. 3. 🤣
  14. When the "daily deaths" stat starts to consistently drop it will be a signal we've passed the peak.
  15. Sure, otoh Jon is probably correct that the daily deaths is the best data point available. Maybe tracking how many people are hospitalized would be better but I haven't seen any data for that.
