    Greatest Team Tournie: Round 1, Day 1

    This vote is hereby declared a fraud.

    Crazy Off Season This Year

    They should cancel the season. Harsh but true. There exists no scenario where we want thousands of people packed into stadiums in fall, right when covid19 will be back. Will they? Extremely unlikely. But playing entirely without fans, the other possible option, only works so long as none of the players get it. Also not sure how the players would feel about that, given the lack of any sort of HFA then.

    You believe a bunch of shit without proof. There is no proof of voter fraud or suppression. My counter argument is this: You place entirely too much faith in the average intelligence of any voter, in this case specifically democratic ones. If you really think Bernie has evidence of voter fraud and isn't coming out with it, then you're absolutely right, he's a total moron. People won't vote for this, we've seen it. They like it, they want it, but they aren't ready to risk it. Not yet, at least.

    Dr. Fauci and the CDC have got Trump back on board. Social distancing has been extended to at least April 30th and he concedes that if we did not do so, "some people" say we'd have 2.2 million deaths or more. Glad he's listening to Fauci and not Fox News. He is also absolutely correct that if we keep this at 100k or less deaths in the US we will have done a fantastic job containing it. Those would be great numbers, which is of course horrible to consider, but given the horrific scale of this pandemic, 100k deaths only would be a huge victory. I watch Dr. Mike on youtube. If you don't, I highly encourage you to do so. I did so before this thing started and he's a great guy, but all his stuff recently has been on COVID19. He's fact checked politicians of both parties- he specifically singles out Biden and Trump because he considers them the leaders of their parties. He had an interview with Fauci where he said the real danger is this thing likely scales back or disappears in the summer, only to return in the fall. And that we will have a small window to be ready for that. Something I hadn't really considered as a possibility before.

    Greatest Team Tournie: Round 1, Day 1

    So did I. Ben's a rookie in this hypothetical matchup and Joe Flacco transcended the mortal coil during that run. In fact, I might be voting for 2012 Baltimore all the way through this. The 2012 Baltimore Ravens are the greatest postseason team in history, change my mind.

    I mean, except the people didnt get nothing. They get $1200 for each person. That's not nothing.

    I think it depends entirely on COVID19 at this point. If we do a good job social distancing and stuff and keep deaths down as low as possible, he wins after he destroys Biden in the debates. (Man I wish we could have seen Bernie vs Trump at least one time in a debate.) If COVID19 explodes and kills a million plus people, nothing Trump can say or do will save him.

    Right and then the GOP says "The Dems are preventing us from giving money to the people." You have way too high a view of the average person's intelligence. I think basically all of your conspiracy theories are defeated by someone pointing out that the average American voter is pretty ignorant to the goings on of politics.

    There was no option as AOC explained. The GOP was not going to pass it without their major business bailouts, and for that matter the Dem leadership wanted their own special interest in it as well. It was give some money to the people or give no money to the people.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Lmao. Report now that the PPE Trump and Pompeo sent to China on February the 7th was over 17 TONS. I really don't know how I could even make up shit worse than what he's doing in real life. He's a bumbling idiot who is getting people killed.
  11. ICE is still raiding homes and using PPE such as N95 masks to do so. PPE that could be utilized by doctors and nurses. Is it really a critical priority to continue to deport people and break up families in the middle of a global pandemic, especially if by so doing you are using equipment that should be going to doctors and nurses?
  12. To be clear, you're a cultist because no matter what Trump does you follow him like a sheep, not just because you support Trump. Too many Trump supporters are like you. I think Pelosi was dumb as hell to include green new deal shit in a coronavirus bill, however I see no information that Pelosi and Schumer blocked a bill that had a proposal of 1200 x 2. Mnuchin at one point talked about 1k twice, once in April and once in May, but that never made it into a bill, as far as I can see. Why do you think I don't know about pop up hospitals? How is that at all relevant? Are you saying because we have pop-up hospitals that somehow means we're on top of this? You do know we have to staff them. And that that staff needs PPE? Which we are already running out of? Let everyone back out and they will be overrun. The buildings are like the 3rd problem. Staff is first, then PPE, then buildings. We can always re-purpose dorms and other buildings to use as hospitals if necessary. That's a concern, to be sure, but I think it's the least of the three atm. My best friend's wife and her sister are nurses. Both of them have been dealing with COVID19 patients on a daily basis- with absolutely zero personal protective equipment. It is a matter of time before they get the virus at this point. When that starts happening in earnest, you lose even more medical staff for at least two weeks and the situation just gets worse.
  13. You keep trumpeting the one good thing Trump did- for which I have repeatedly given him credit. For which- even AT THE TIME- I said he was correct on doing- in fact I wanted him to go further. Also Trump's continued claims that he was attacked for that decision by the entire wing of Democrats is false. Nor did he close the border, as he claims. There were warnings given, but people were not forbidden to travel to China or back from it if they were a US citizen. Two Dems did attack him for it, but neither were candidates or leaders. This was hardly "everyone is calling him racist" as he keeps saying. Many people on both sides saw this coming. It wasn't hard to see. However, he also downplayed the pandemic, said the media and Dems were using it as a hoax, said we were on top of it, that the numbers were going down, that the stock market was looking good to him, etc, etc, etc. Only around like March 10th did he finally get on board and now that Fox News is telling him to re-open he's considering it. If you re-open the economy entirely- unless the situation, for some reason, drastically changes between now and Easter- you will kill millions of people. That is not an option. Trump is talking about packed churches on Easter Sunday. Please tell me you see why that would be a horrible idea.
  14. Where are you getting this information from? The Dems nixed the original bill because the GOP had a slush fund for big business and gave way too much to the corporations. Democrats, btw, wanted $1,500 a person for at least the next three months. Republicans refused it because Dems were paying for it by taking money away from the corporate bailouts. The GOP is still not giving people on the lower end of the income scale as much as people up near the $75k range. DJT is in a cult. It's hard to find middle ground with cultists. They don't use reason or logic, they just follow Dear Leader wherever he goes. In this case, however, there's a very simple way to prevent a depression and keep practicing social distancing. Pass temporary UBI for the duration of the crisis and stop using the money for corporate bailouts. I'm not saying we need it until the vaccine, but we do need it until hospitals can get on top of things. There is no economy to speak of if hospitals are overrun with patients.
  15. Do you understand the part where I said 1.3 million people, at minimum, will die if we stop social distancing this soon? We fucked up. The way to slow the virus to a halt to allow somewhat safe renewals of the economy was to take severe action- like what we're doing now- back in January. You know how you fix the issue of the average American being in danger? You freeze rent and mortgages and give everyone in the country 1k/month. Preferably for good, because that's always been the best solution, but at least until we have a vaccine distributed and life can go back to semi-normal.
