Re: Supreme Court -- 2011 and beyond discussion - Ruth Bader Ginsburg RIP

I imagine that she was thinking in 2016 to let the first woman president replace her.

But you are certainly right. And Breyer is already 82 years old also.

Re: Supreme Court -- 2011 and beyond discussion - Ruth Bader Ginsburg RIP

I don't think so.

Sometimes people rationalize somewhat but then they are then bound by this viewpoint.

It is altogether different when someone just flips 180 degrees like this.

You can't really blame Trump for wanting this, but Mitch McConnell has got to be one of the biggest hypocrites alive.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Mostly younger people (between 20-40) contract the virus at the moment.

If you are interested, check out the following link (the site is in English) for our "Dutch CDC" Dashboard, which gives...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

It's intellectually dishonest to compare single European countries to the US as a whole. Even a state like Mississippi would be the worst affected country in the would, if it were a country.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

The USA has now surpassed all EU countries but for Spain and Belgium regarding death rates. And Belgium has the most broad definition of COVID-19 deaths in the world (they have been counting untested...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

The thing is that the early spike was pretty accurate with regard to deaths, but very inaccurate with regard to cases. The cases were way higher than reported.

For instance, in the Netherlands, we...

Re: The Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Not only am I okay with it, I endorse it.

Please, please, please, Dems! Stoop to Trump's level and win the election by any means necessary.

re: The Random Political Meme & Social Media Errata Thread

But that's not the point. The point is why use your (more 'mainstream' sounding) middle name. If Obama was born Hussein Barack Obama, it would be a little weird if he went by Barack and then it would...

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

But that is really a ridiculous argument. If you split the USA in half (population and accident wise), then only half of traffic accidents would happen in the part you live in. But it wouldn't be...

Re: The Official Media bias thread ptIII

It's more their soul takeaway, I guess.

But you are right. It's like with conspiracies, if God would come down to earth and say "9/11 (or JFK) was not a conspiracy" many people would say "Wow, I...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

The lesson is going down is not enough. You need to go down to an acceptable level.

Suppose you manage to halve cases each day. When you have 1 million cases, it takes 10 days to get to 1,000...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

That is not how it works. :lol:

If a country gets down to a certain low level, then it can loosen some restrictions.

If you as a country average 1 death a day, then you can take a rise of 100%...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Mathematically, sure it is playing "any role". Even when you have just 10 post-inftectious people with antibodies in the USA, this "herd immunity" shields the rest of the USA "somewhat".

Moreover, Obama inherited a big deficit and succesfully brought the deficit down significantly.

Re: The Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I'm checking numbers several times a week. Trump's approval rate on FiveThirtyEight went two points up in about three weeks, from about 40% to about 42. Because this is a weighed average from many...

Re: The One and Only Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Obsession Thread

You must suck at math, 52 + 48 = 100. But 46 + 6 + 48 = 100 too.

And it's not in a candidate's hands per se. If Warren decides to run as an independent, Biden simply has no chance in hell to win,...

Re: The One and Only Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Obsession Thread

I'm Dutch and not eligible to vote. And luckily, we don't have a two party system. But if we did, I would certainly vote differently. I dislike Hilary Clinton, but I would have gladly paid USD 1,000...
