Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

Remember when COVID-19 denialists were saying it was nothing compared to the seasonal flu that kills like 60,000 people per year (the 60,000 per year was an over estimate)? Then remember when there was a meme going around talking about how an estimated 100,000 died from the Hong Kong flu in the Unit...

Re: 2020 General Election

I don't think they overstepped their bounds. The PA legislature passed a sweeping voting overhaul in 2019. Read more here: https://www.governor.pa.gov/newsroom/governor-wolf-signs-election-reform-bill-including-new-mail-in-voting/ It allowed voters to submit a ballot until 8:00 pm on election day. ...

Re: 2020 General Election

I always voted Republican in national elections because I tried to pick what I viewed as the lessor of two evils and did not want to waste my vote by voting for someone not from the two major parties. Now I vote Democrat for the same reason. After what's gone on since the Republican Party decided t...

Re: 2020 General Election

It's real easy to say you're done with a major party until you figure out the only other options are going to the other major party or for third parties that cant top 5% of the popular vote.

Re: 2020 General Election

BTW, speaking as a person who voted consistently for Republican candidates for my first 40 years as an eligible voter, I will say that the way the Republican Party has acted with respect to this election has just about eliminated any fraction of the already minuscule likelihood that I will ever vote...

Re: 2020 General Election

Wasn’t Team Trump attempting to have select states thrown out or have new elections? Don't believe he was looking to have any states thrown out. He was looking to have certain votes thrown out, and for reasons such as you guys are talking about. Rule changes made outside the normal process, such as...

Worst President Ever

At least to this point. That's my prediction on how historians will rank Donald Trump both in the near future and 100 years from now through the lens of elapsed time. If there was any doubt about that it was erased by what happened over the past few months. History will report that there was not an ...
