  1. let me be first to speculate: Akiem Hicks and Kyle Fuller to Denver in exchange for a mid-round pick.
  2. let me put on my bronco homer glasses (like I ever take them off lol) and try to make sense of this: Lock: It appears to me that the team has more confidence in his future than the rest of us do. Consider that 2020 was to be his first year as an incumbent but last year was tainted by (A) new OC (B) no OTA's (C) injuries to Lock himself and receiving corps. The team is satisfied to go into 2021 with Lock as the incumbent starter, but they want a better back-up QB than Driscoll. Von: Not sure if he is over the hill. His sack numbers were down in 2019 but his pressures were still the
  3. had Trump actively promoted masks and social distancing, we could have given Trump credit for that. any affect that masks/distancing had was in spite of Trump, not because of.
  4. my expectations would have been a national response with clear guidance about who can receive a vaccination and when. Exceeding my expectations would have been vaccinations run by the US Military (best logistics organization in the world), setting up drive-thru locations around the country, and the ability for me to sign up for a slot and know exactly when to arrive.
  5. big programs are hard to roll out quickly. Remember Obamacare web page debacle? I'm not going to find fault with trump org because they fumbled here...IMO fumbling was expected. That being said, they didn't exceed expectations.
  6. Well then it should be easy to prove me wrong.
  7. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_party_switchers_in_the_United_States A whole lot of D->R in the 1960's, especially in southern states. A handful of R->D as well.
  8. Trump did us no favors when he claimed we would have it by the election. By making that claim and politicizing the process he seriously injured the public trust. If the whole thing feels like it is being rushed to bolster the presidents election chances, a large segment of the population will not believe the vaccine is safe.
  9. keep checking. There will be more mass-vaccinations at Bank of America Stadium. When I got shot #1 at BofA stadium, reservations were opened up on Saturday for injection on Tuesday. At the event, there were people there getting shot #2. My shot #2 is scheduled for 3/30. If they follow the same pattern, they will open up for vaccinations at the stadium on 3/27. I used the Atrium app to make my reservation.
  10. I will not credit Trump with development of the vaccine. Credit goes to the scientists, doctors, etc who did the grunt work. (I am sensitive to this as someone who is in product development but sees marketing / management take credit for the hard work I put in). I will credit Trump for the vaccine rollout. While it has not been perfect, it has been better than expected.
  11. well, there hasn't been a SC justice impeached since 1805 when the independence of the court was still in question. This isn't something that happens often and it ain't gonna happen here.
  12. good call. Reading a bit, their government did less than ours did, but their population kind of did their own "lockdown" - they voluntarily restricted themselves. Japan is probably more of an outlier. Is there a better example of a country with more restrictive lockdowns than US, a relatively high population, and trustworthy data?
  13. except it's not. At all. Reason 1,244,365 why people should read the article before commenting.
  14. lol..."look how wet my shoes are. This umbrella sucks!"
  15. read the article. It takes literally 30 seconds to skim. Here's the title: FBI facing allegation that its 2018 background check of Brett Kavanaugh was ‘fake’
  16. yet that was known at the time and he was confirmed regardless. There are no do-overs for a for-life appointment. Kavanaugh has his seat. isn't nothing gonna get him out, barring impeachment, which would only be subject to anything he has done since the confirmation.
  17. we really managed to thread the needle, exerting big pain on the economy with minimum to show for it. It absolutely was a massive failure. If we had effective mitigation efforts and actual proper lockdowns, we would have had far fewer deaths (but bigger economic impact). If we did nothing, we would have had more deaths but less impact on the economy. I do think it might be interesting to examine results of various responses, in terms of GDP growth in 2020 and deaths per million. What countries would be extreme examples of high and low mitigation efforts? Ideally, we should c
