    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    The article I am reading says they did 6,000 tests in the last 24 hours and had 650 positives. 11% positive ... when the state average since the beginning is 16%. To me, that is numbers going down. You can't just look at the total number and use that to fear monger, I feel like that is really dishonest tactic by the media and people in general. They are doing and saying the same thing about Texas when they've, IIRC, more than doubled their testing capabilities. When you are exponentially increasing testing -- yes... total numbers are going to rise faster. Hospital capacity is also, still fine and "steady" in Indiana. Only 15% of ICU are taken by covid patients... still 40% empty... only 20% of ventilators in use... If you're increased testing. Reporting larger numbers of positives. And the hospitals are still where they were yesterday or last week... Again, I feel like that's positive. Leave Blank To Use URL
  2. I've come full circle on this. At first, very beginning... I was like, this seems like an over reaction. Then I was like, woah this is serious. Let's lock it down for a bit, and at least weigh the options. Now though... idk bro. I say open it up. I'm cool with some restrictions tho, and I think employers need to remain as flexible as possible. It's gonna suck, but they need to allow their employees to take time if it's needed. Period. If you aren't comfortable being out and about, being in contact with people. I get it. Stay away. I am cool with that. But for the rest of us... It's hard for me to justify a complete shutdown or anything even remotely close. At least where I am at. Obviously, where I am is very different than NY. I am very ignorant on how this is impacting people in places like that. However, it seems like the whole " our hospitals are going to be overwhelmed" is not true... it seems like the whole " we won't have enough ventilators " is not true. Sporting events and public transport tho... ugh, idk bro. Isolate the at risk. be cautious.... But keep livin.

    Have they slowed down though? Like I said I haven't really looked in depth into the numbers pre and post lockdown. I am not saying it doesn't help at all. You would assume with less contact, that less people would get it. But as I mentioned previously, New Yorkers are still getting it at large rates in lockdown and so are most other places. Scientifically, I haven't seen a model that says.. "lockdown slows the spread by 75%" (made up number) or whatever. And tbh, I actually hate that quote. If lockdown doesn't mean the danger is passing, that makes me believe we're all getting it anyway. Which means we are just prolonging it's stay here. Obviously we don't want to overwhelm the ICUs, but I think that then supports a soft reopening. Iowa had one of the worst hospitalization rates in the country for COVID a few weeks ago, and thus we were projected to be over capacity in hospitals like April 21st or something. We never locked down, and that capacity issue never happened. New York projected they were gonna need like 150,000 beds... they've used less than 20,000 last I checked. Also, finding current numbers isn't going great for me right now. Like 4 or 5 pages into googles results without anything close to current, ha. Granted, they were/are in lock down... but that's a far cry from hospital beds being in actual shortage. Sounds like soft reopening. Let's goooooooo.

    Maybe. I don't think it's for certain any projections are going to be true. Mainly because nobody really knows much about this virus, still. And with the fluctuating policies, it's literally impossible to know how many people are going to die. One of the projections I was looking at says 160k deaths by August 4th. But they caveat that by saying there's a range of 99k-266k. The US surpassed projections of 72k deaths DURING lockdown, so... I really don't trust them at this point. We won't know what the total is until it's done. Plus, New York came out and said like 80% of the new cases they are getting are people staying home... I was reading too that some studies are asking for another 4 months of lockdown... Another study says 95% of America could still be at risk... which directly conflicts with another study that shows way more Americans have the antibodies already. Again, point being nobody really knows what's going on.

    I haven't looked at any numbers but I expect the economy to start really ramping up in June...and that's what Trump is going to win or lose on. I don't think rushing the country back open is going to hurt him 6 months from now unless we really do sink economically. Biden doesn't energize the remaining Bernie bros, Dems historically not turning out as much as they should. Then they have a couple of debates, where Biden is going to look like a corpse? I still expect Trump to win going away until further notice.

    Where did you hear the Biden dropping out stuff though Sean? I think they'd stuff his corpse and prop him up in a chair with like sunglasses and a hat before dropping out at this point.Pete was getting like negative approval from black voters. You can't win as a Democrat if you can't get the black vote. But I couldn't vote for him. I didn't dislike Pete at first, but he's a slave to corporate interests. yes, most of them are... but he seems too much like plant to me lol.

    Justin Amash is exploring potential to run for President as a Libertarian. Phew... thought I might have to vote for Trump for a second there.

    2020 Official NFL Draft Discussion Thread

    I've also read things that (are also probably sensationalized) that the Eagles want to test and move towards a 2 QB system. Any truth to that do you think? Is Hurts going to be a better Taysom Hill? Or more of your traditional QB and backup.

    The Eagles don't have a QB. The Eagles drafted a QB. What is there to so deeply ponder? Kappa.

    2020 Official NFL Draft Discussion Thread

    Packers are drafting like they are The Bengals or like they are rebuilding. Pretty weird. Trade up for a backup QB and Aaron’s potential successor.... take a 3rd string RB who will probably replace Jones next year (contract year, Packers probably won’t pay him) and a 3rd or maybe even 4th string TE... I know some analysts had TE as a need but it really wasn’t with Jace getting healthy. Packers have already said they’re gonna use him extensively and move him around etc. So from my view the Packers drafted a bunch of backups, none of which are at positions of need. Maybe this works out long term but for a team who got railroaded in the NFCCG, sure doesn’t seem like they’ve don’t anything to get better.

    He should. Biden has negative chance of beating Trump in any debate. Trump should just do as many as possible, because Biden will look like an imbecile. I do feel bad saying that, because he probably has early stages of dementia or something but... this is the game he signed up for, so. Have fun.

    Bernie really sticking it to the establishment today with his official endorsement of Joe Biden.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Ya, you aren't wrong that Dems didn't want him. But people didn't really want him either. He lost support in the last 4 years... He got screwed with Hillary for sure... but he's gone against two of the weakest Democrats in my lifetime and couldn't beat them... Biden is probably going to die in office if he is elected (doubt he's elected, but if so). He can't form a coherent thought to save his life, and Bernie couldn't grow his base. That's almost unfathomable to me. I know I have said this before, but he is a terrible candidate for President. He talks a good talk mostly... He has solid ideas mostly... But he isn't a builder. He isn't someone who I trust to create and push these ideas into reality. I know Tulsi is a small fish relative to the rest of the Dem field, but if he will treat her the way he did.... How will he treat anyone else that doesn't offer to blow him like AOC or Rashida or a few others? Yes I realize the DNC behind the scenes mobilized the moderates in the party behind Biden, but did Bernie even TRY? Probably not, or not that hard if so. He didn't even make headway with Warren. Like, what was he fucking doing this whole time? lol. When other candidates drop out, you've seen Biden (let's be real, Biden's shadow team... biden himself has no clue where he is or what year it is) push slightly different policies or programs to attract as many of the other candidates voters as possible -- and he did the same thing with Bernie's voters. I am not saying it has worked that well, but that is the game and Biden's team played. Bernie's strategy was to play the game (running for President is a game) but he refused to make moves once he was in. He couldn't or wouldn't adapt his strategy or shift focus even a fraction to try and attract more and more different people. TL;DR - The DNC didn't want Bernie as president, correct. But Bernie's campaign is a failure that he himself has to own. This falls on him almost entirely.

    Saying they would rather have Trump than Sanders just sounded like Sean level conspiracy stuff and not like “unrelated to Sanders”. But that’s just how I read it, so probably my bad. DNC is obv corrupt, and I agree with you Re:Wisconsin but the primary has been effectively over for weeks. Sanders was too unmoving to be a real threat. DNC being shitters during COVID is Unrelated , I agree.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Even thought the GOP stranglehold on the Senate still gave them leverage... they basically retreated with their tails between their legs and just took their scraps (like oversight of treasury funds, extra funding for the arts, etc). Instead of disrupting the status quo they chose to play along. In other news... Nationwide poll saw Trump gain 5 points on Joe Biden. Biden still leads by 2% but that's well within the margin of error. Unless he does something really colossally fail, I would set the O/U on Trump winning by 10 points.
  19. Clueless corrupt sack of garbage of the day. He's losing re-election in the most recent poll to his opponent by 4 points, hopefully that number increased.
  20. 4 GOP senators objecting to $600/week extra in unemployment benefits... Bernie sanders says he will hold up the bill until it becomes less anti-worker... sigh.
  21. There is a deal for a $2 T corona stimulus package. Not many details yet, but it is by and large done
  22. So far, like 60% of people approve of Trump's handling of Corona. And 40% of Democrats which is much higher than I would have ever guessed. Will be interesting how those numbers change if he tells everyone to go back to work. Also, here in Iowa, our Governor just said that she will make decisions independent of Trump and doesn't really give a fuck what he says (and she's GOP). So... yeah, could be interesting start to April.
  23. She's a moron, but she has a point with this one...

    Trump Regime thread.

    I hate politicians. Democrats have counter proposal that has it's ups and downs... Increases amounts to individuals and families, which is great. But they also threw in there stuff about companies who take government money be forced to raise minimum wage to 15$, tells the airlines they need to cut carbon emissions, and they want to cancel a bunch of Trump EOs... No matter how great these things are individually, sticking them in this bill makes it seem like it won't get far. Republicans are asshats, Democrats are asshats... Why do we need to throw in all this corporate favoritism and grandstanding political cornerstones ... just makes it that much harder to get this thing passed in a timely fashion. And why do all these bills (not just this one) have to have 5 million different things in it. Why can't we just focus on one thing at a time and get it done.
