  1. I disagree on Trump being sharp. Yes he can handle impromptu questions and hold a conversation, but the contents of his responses tend to be less than sharp. It's a different type of decline - Biden maybe has trouble speaking and keeping a train of thought whereas Trump seems to fall into a pattern of repeating phrases and saying nonsense. Don't take it from me though. Here is his one-time communications Chief, Scaramucci's take. This was 2019. Trump supporters voted for him anyways, which goes to my original premise: they don't really care, it's just partisan mud slinging.
  2. no I'm not suprised. I would hope for better but apparently our divisions have driven us past that.
  3. man, woman, person, camera TV. his inability to hold a glass with one hand. Stumbling while walking down a ramp. His angry lashing out and adherence to radical conspiracy theories, and probably the biggest speaking gaffe I can recall, "'I don't see any reason why it would be Russia" I know you think these are no big deal, Trump explained all of them away previously...Just like Biden supporters explain his faux pas away. 2 sides of the same coin.
  4. Because Trump supporters continue to follow a guy with a clear mental decline and even voted for him again. It seems to me that mental competence isn't high on their list of important attributes for a president. I am not going to try to tell you Joe is as sharp as he was 10, 20 years ago. I haven't seen enough to do an opinion. If he is slipping, well that's why he has aides. He can still set a direction and make good decisions. it just seems odd to me for Trumpguys to knock on Biden for this. That's all.
  5. I refuse to believe that Trump voters care one bit about diminished mental capacity. This is all "gotcha!" politics. nothing more, nothing less.
  6. so is defund the police...It's ironic you accuse everyone of being two-faced except yourself.
  7. roughly 1:107, or 0.93% The Case Fatality Rate for COVID in the US is currently 1.79%. Now, that number is heavily skewed by demographics but all odds are. The math our stealthy friend was using above is faulty - he is looking at the entire population of the US and all COVID fatalities. That's not appropriate because the number of fatalities is not locked - it will continue to increase in perpetuity (there is no way for it to go down). Ironically, that number would be FAR higher if not for the vaccines that our friend chooses not to take. The 1.79% number is odds of dying once you get the disease. You would have to multiply by the probability of catching it first to get the aggregate odds of dying, and that number drops as more and more people are vaccinated.
  8. by compromised by health issues, I'm talking about cancer patients undergoing chemo which wrecks their immune system, meaning the vaccine won't work for them. Same holds for organ transplant recipients and others. And no, I have no respect for people not willing to get the shot. None. Sorry, not sorry but it's flat out selfish. We might as well call this discussion done because I'm not going to budge on that. I bid you good day.
  9. it's not me I'm scared for. It's those that can't get vaccinated - the very young, the imuno-compromised, the homeless/indigent, the segments of society that fall thru the cracks. It strikes me as incredibly selfish that some can't endure the simplest action to make COVID go away.
  10. no, I am not equating anything. I'm trying to gauge your risk tolerance. You are fine with accepting risk A but not risk B. That tells me that there is some level of risk which is the largest you are willing to put your life on the line for (assuming no discernable reward). it seems you are more cavalier than I am.
  11. I can't catch lung cancer or obesity from someone else. OK, maybe second hand smoke, which is absolutely not ok. I mean, we outlawed smoking in airplanes, restaurants, bars, and other public places for this very reason.
  12. thanks, yes, .166. good catch. So what's your number?
  13. I don't know about you but I'm planning on putting a little bit of ethanol in my blood stream tonight.
  14. yup. Your odds of catching a bullet in Russian Roulette is 0.125. You won't do that, so we have established there is some probability for which you will not put your life on the line. Let's say your odds from dying are 0.1%. Is that cool with you? It's not cool with me, and it shouldn't be cool with anyone. I guess some people simply value human life more than others. And yes, it's gambling. Everything you do, everything you have ever done, is gambling. There is always a risk/reward for every action. That's the essence of gambling.
  15. do you wear seat belts? do you play golf during lightning storms? do you ever play Russian roulette? There are a lot of things we do or don't do specifically because there is a probability of dying or not dying. That's not freaking out, that's self preservation. I am not one to gamble with my life, but you do you.
  16. Many people are saying... Makes sense, I guess. In for a penny, in for a pound.
  17. Were those three not elected to their respective positions, including election oversight? It seems that the voting people of AZ and MI placed these three in direct involvement.
  18. Not really - what was that about? Regardless, yes the Military has an obligation to not follow unlawful orders. There is no lawful role the military could possibly play in removing Biden (outside of forcefully removing a squatting ex-president, I suppose), so I'm not sure I see a contradiction. My post wasn't really about you - I quoted you as the last man in the conversation chain so I apologize if I ruffled any feathers. I know you understand full well that party allegiance bears no relation to how the military behaves and there will be no taking sides in a political dispute. Because if they did, the Republic is over.
  19. It doesn't matter. I have to believe it doesn't matter. I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." Military members swear allegiance to the Constitution - not to Joe Biden, not to Donald Trump. ETA: but who cares about a 250 year old document anyways, amiright?
  20. sounds like the only ones advocating for a quick conversion to dictatorship are trying to install Trump, not get rid of him.
