Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

While Arizona and the southeast are in full on nightmare mode, the places that were already hit are really starting to clear up. Illinois is now done to 25 deaths a day over the last week with only ~2.5% of tests coming back positive. New York is down to 12 deaths a day and is close to dropping und...

Re: Journalism Thread

So... A Fox News reporter used this quote off of a Reddit thread on air in an effort to discredit Seattle protesters: To illustrate this point, Fox News shared a screenshot of a Reddit post entitled “I didn’t vote for Raz”. Raz Simone, a rapper, is the alleged unofficial leader of CHAZ. “I thought w...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Sometimes I wonder if Trump really wishes to be re-elected, he's not trying all that hard, someone truly invested in re-election would have used the pandemic and George Floyd to garner massive empathy and support. If goes with a racist theme, he's sure to lose, racists who ordinarily would have vot...

Thanks for the info.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Why worry about violence that destroys buildings or businesses when you refuse to fix the violence cops commit to people nearly everyday? I’m an architect.

So about that guy who tried to ram the hospital ship in LA with a freight train...

"Eduardo Moreno, 44, was charged with one count of train wrecking, prosecutors said. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney."

Apparently "train wrecking" is an offense. :-k

My commute regularly takes me an hour at least. Starting Saturday, it will be about 30 seconds to go from the second floor of my house to my basement.

(Feverishly) hot take: if the coronavirus issue continues throughout the year, Trump is all but a lock to be re-elected. It takes the heat of the economy tanking off of him, and it effectively turns him into a wartime president, meaning he benefits from the default, "don't change horses midstr...
