    We could have done significantly better, but Americans aren't willing to, regardless of who is in office. 

    Sorry, but there's literally no way you could know that. It's your opinion.

    Let's stick with the facts.

    The fact is that we have more resources than anyone, and still managed to fail worse than basically anyone.

    How many twitter threads need to happen where it is "just a hoax/flu, no one can take my freedom and make me wear a mask" -> 1 week later "whoa, really sick, this is no joke" -> 3 weeks later "this is soandso's family, letting you know that they have passed away" before potential skeptics have some self reflection and realize that the world is not trying to pull a prank on them by having them wear a mask and stop going to bars. There are a ton of them who have followed this script already. 

    It's one thing to think that way at the beginning.

    But 150,000 dead Americans later, and we're still hearing the same crap.

    I really don't get it.

    Like, what's the number? How many people have to die?

    Herman Cain died of coronavirus, after contracting it within a couple weeks of the Tulsa rally, where he attended without a mask. It’s within the incubation window. Whether he got it there or elsewhere, the intent to lead by example with soldiering on without a mask has proven deadly. Tragic, and unnecessary.

    He also tweeted out an anti-mask message the day before the Tulsa rally, which has since been deleted.

    No tweet from Trump yet? Gee I wonder why.

    Facts and science don't care about our political affiliations people!!

    Oh my gosh so many clutch your pearl moments in here!

    Is there anything Trump does that doesn't outrage you guys? I mean seriously, this is getting ridiculous.

    just because you amp up the drama doesnt mean there's actually, you know, drama.  Most likely it's just you.

     

    It's a pretty huge story. I mean, maybe you don't really care about politics, current events, that sort of thing. Some of my best friends are that way.

    But it's kind of weird to willingly come to a politics forum to complain that people are talking about....politics.

    We're sadly to a point where public safety isn't going to be a priority until prominent science skeptics start getting sick or even die.  Trump years really are the Dark Ages. 

    To be fair, he's a symptom not the cause. Though he's certainly made things worse.

    But this is the result of decades of anti-intellectualism. We've seen it for years with global warming.

    Currently, 58% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say colleges and universities have a negative effect on the way things are going in the country, while just 36% say their effect is positive,

    58%. That's just insane.

    This kind of censorship is good for capitalism, though. It gives competing platforms an opportunity to gain market share by promoting the very ideas that their competitors "censor."

    If enough people follow, then Twitter goes bankrupt and the new business thrives.

    Also, this is a perfect opportunity for true believers to get in on the ground floor of a future stock bonanza. If Twitter's actions cause hydroxy-related stocks to sag, then savvy investors can swoop in and buy at a bargain price.

    Anyway, complaining about this type of "censorship" is a bit like complaining about FFToday for banning the promotion of the Draft Dominator.

    Hydroxy supporters should be celebrating Twitter and Facebook's decision. Now's your chance to make them pay.

    Let the free market decide, right?

    Or is that not a thing anymore?

    He sounds like a hostile, defensive corporate defense witness on the stand. Someone should remind him that obstruction and lying to Congress has been prosecuted under this administration and it will be in the next.

    Oh I think we're way past that point. This dude is all-in.

    That the discussion an echo chamber. If Trump loses and the Trump supporters are run, that's a non factor as it's a handful of people. 

    I think I'm just missing the reason Trump supporters would be "run" off the board.

    Liberals weren't run off the board when he was elected.

    Thanks. But I'm not "trying to be fair". I'm simply verbalizing what I see and recognizing we have a big vulnerability with such a lopsided majority. :shrug: 

    What's the vulnerability again?

    That people will leave the board if Trump isn't reelected?

    Again. Disagree there. But that's cool. It's really a mute point as I don't envision this changing at all. That's how these things work. 

    And for sure, everyone in this situation will naturally deny it. That too is just how it works. 

    *moot

    Sorry, English major.

    After 50 nights of protesting maybe a new direction is needed.  Instead of just standing around why can`t the protest be centered about different areas of improvement in the cities as well?  One night take 100 protesters and clean a blighted area with cable news watching.  Make it a contribution protest.  When 500-1000 people are standing around for 7-8 hours that is a ton of wasted potential manpower that could actually help the city and the cause at the same time.  Every night target different areas of protest/improvement zones and let it be known so it can be covered by the media.   Work hand in hand with local law enforcement and develop more of a bond of trust.  Get Home Depot and Lowes on board to provide what is needed to make the cites more beautiful and peaceful as well.

    Pipe dream? 

    It's a nice idea, but would kind of defeat the point of the protest.

    There's a reason people fill up busy streets and highways when protesting. To be an annoyance, an obstacle.

    The idea being that eventually the powers that be will listen to what they're saying, if for no other reason than getting those people to stop protesting.
