Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

The Democrats are eventually going to assume complete control. The handwriting is on the wall. If it doesn't happen this year it is still going to happen relatively soon in historical context. And when they do they are not going to tolerate a "conservative" Supreme Court. They will do what's necess...

Re: Joe Biden gaffe and verbal bungles watch

It's funny seeing the Cultists on here trying to say Biden is senile or demented, yet they support the truly demented, senile, Anti-american Piece of Shit Traitor Trump. Well...I think we can say Trump doesn't have dementia. Or at least he didn't as of when he took that screening test. But it is ki...

Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

Yeah I figured when I saw the "P" word (pancreatic) this last time the jig was up for her. Two years ago I'd have unreservedly seen the appointment of three conservative justices as a silver lining to the nightmare of having Trump as President. Now I'm a little concerned because of that extreme Unit...

Re: 2020 General Election

We have reached the point where, unfortunately, the Republican Party and what we call the "conservative movement" can accurately be called "the flat Earth society." It's basically rationale people vs. people who are in a misinformation bubble. https://media.tenor.com/images/46a7655b1f625360c5bd65b6...

Re: 2020 General Election

I really can't compare how Biden was in the past to now because I never watched him much in the past. All I know is that when I watch him now he does not come off as having any cognitive issues. I certainly don't see any signs of dementia. I watched my Dad wither away from dementia so I feel like I ...

You haven’t even made a legitimate case that there IS “increasing Atlantic hurricane frequency” yet. Let’s not just accept that as settled science....your data shows no such thing. Yes I have. There are definitely positive associations over 1851 - 2020 (I added 2020 so far), 1920 - 2020, and 1960 o...

As I've said about stuff like that before: Biden is fine . He comes across as more "there" than Trump does. These people can keep trying this and I guess there is some chance it will work.

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

I tried looking at the Sturgis thing at http://ftp.iza.org/dp13670.pdf. I think it's suggestive. But it's indirect evidence.

I do agree that the Sturgis gathering was a stupid thing to do.
