Re: Political memes, Posters, Funny Pics, Etc.

That last line has been debunked. Do the Flu and Covid have the same infection rates? IOW's is one more contagious than the other? The line that COVID payouts are higher than flu testing payouts? If so, link please. https://www.factcheck.org/2020/04/hospital-payments-and-the-covid-19-death-count/

Re: Political memes, Posters, Funny Pics, Etc.

Isn't it obvious that flu cases are dropping because more people are limiting their contacts with others and practicing better hygiene? It might not be enough to stop COVID but it is conducive to a drop in flu cases. You bet it helps, but the virtual drop off to relatively nil has many questioning ...

Re: The New (Domestic) War on Terror

Re-education camps? Re-education camps? We can't even get people to comply with mask mandates or sheriffs enforcing them. cs.com is my daily re-education camp for avoiding thinking like a conk. :lol: Also, something to chew on.

Re: The New (Domestic) War on Terror

Re: The New (Domestic) War on Terror

Interesting article and a scary proposition. Greenwald is spot on. I warned conservatives about government overreach during the Portland riots and I'll warn liberals now. Any law that expands the power of the government to restrict conservative causes/actors can also be used to restrict liberal cau...

The New (Domestic) War on Terror

Greenwald has been pushing back hard on civil liberties/1A issues lately. These seems like very legit concerns regarding speech, incitement of violence, and fascistic (yes, old kalmie is using it to define the left here or also why the Democratic Party is really center right - take your pick).

You’ve shown that 3rd parties have some serious hurdles and that history can be a horizontal appearing line for long periods. But overall, history is neither linear or an absolute predictor. In addition, Roosevelt split the Republican vote in 1912 running as a progressive and actually winning more ...
