Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Iím scared that as we get closer to the election, weíre going to see him pushing more radical positions and actions. Look at it this way. Say Trump gets to the point where he believes he has a near...

Re: RULES AND EXPECTATIONS for Religion, Politics, and World Events

I get that Trump occasionally Tweets photos, but the ones posted here are typically his words. Two scenarios:

A. In a public appearance, Trump calls for imprisoning members of the press who quote...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

IĎd like one of him in front of a majestically flapping confederate flag, cutting between him and statues of confederate traitors heís defending with quotes from them about slavery. If he wants to...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I donít really know a better place to put this, but as a related PSA, always at least ask about getting a sizable medical bill reduced, regardless of your insurance situation. Some years back, I had...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I realize the bar for Trump is far below the expectation of basic literacy, but tenfold means to increase by a factor of 10. A tenfold reduction means a reduction that has been increased by a factor...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Again, I already stated that they get paid 20% more for treatment. Thatís not even close to the same thing as getting paid a $30k bonus if someone dies of COVID. And itís also unrelated as to whether...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

The schools thing is creating a dilemma for my family. The local school system has announced theyíre starting the school year in-person on August 11. My oldest is 5 and is supposed to be starting...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Again, I think whatís being claimed doesnít even make sense. I can find no indication that the government is paying a bonus for people who die of COVID. For Medicare, thereís a 20% bonus for...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Source? Everything I can quickly find on such an idea debunks it. I can find no mention of a COVID death bounty. Thereís a 20% Medicare premium paid for treatment of COVID patients for their illness,...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

What the fuck is a tenfold decrease? And how is it equal to a 39% decrease? Even if Trump was a wonderful person in every way, heís just so transparently a dumbshit that he should be disqualified...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

We have a president taking a nyah nyah nyah tone over the fact that weíve gone from 9/11-level casualties every day and a half to every six days. Itís not surprising, of course, but it sure is...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

The deaths weíre seeing now are generally from cases identified 3-4 weeks ago, right? Our cases since then have increased 150%. There are several things that could keep deaths from increasing that...

Re: The Random Political Memes Thread

Again, everyone under the income limits got $1,200 per person. That was intended as stimulus, not relief. As in, if everyone has an extra $1,200 to pump into the economy, maybe itíll slow the crash....

Re: PlayStation 5 - late 2020

I get that $70 is only a $10 increase, but for most AAA titles, Iíd gotten used to a GCU $48 price point with a $10 reward thrown in. Going from an effective $38 to $70 is a big leap. Add in the...

Re: The Random Political Memes Thread

I suspect that the other nationsí figures roll in unemployment while ours do not. With the $600/week bonus, if I were out of work in Indiana, Iíd be getting ~$4,300/month plus the bonus stimulus...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

So our daily case load tripling in two weeks is due solely to our comprehensive testing. Yet, throughout May and June, Trump touted how comprehensive our testing was. I donít know that Iíve ever seen...

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Anecdotally, I have friends who fit into that category, but have no idea how widespread it is. Glancing through Gallup’s data for the last decade, it doesn’t look like there’s any obvious trend of...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Re: The Random Political Memes Thread

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Agree that we should be looking at it this way, but would also point out not to discount the luck factor. If approach A yields a 65% chance of uncontrolled spread and approach B yields a only a 45%...

Re: What's Up With all the Fireworks??

100% agree with your intent, but your execution is way off here. Youíre calling out a person of color for pointing out something heís seen/heard from other people of color.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

It looks like we didnít really see movement on cases until June 16, so weíre probably looking at another week and a half of a fairly steady death rate.

Given that the current spike is being driven...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

NJ started reporting probable deaths yesterday and dropped ~1,400 that theyíre pretty confident were Covid-19. I think the various tracking sites are figuring out how to incorporate that data.
