    OT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

    You’re acting as if there’s not a somewhat unusual fact pattern in this case. There is one, and it deserves deep moral contemplation.

    OT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

    Deleted my post as some people seem to believe I was advocating some kind of terrible intimidation. To be clear, I don’t believe in anything of that sort. These are public figures; and I believe their decisions should be subject to public critique — including the decision to accept nomination.

    OT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

    I don’t know think any of the above are appropriate, and they didn’t break any law. That said, they should decline the nomination, and the weight of public opinion should be pushing them to that conclusion.

    OT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

    McConnell quashed dissent on the Garland freeze by threatening to run primary opponents against those who weren’t closing ranks. He’ll need a new strategy this time; some folks on the fence who are past primaries, don’t have an upcoming election, or are old enough not to care, or some...

    OT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

    I think McConnell released his statement vowing to nominate a replacement a good 20-30 mins before your post.

    1/4 of Americans were under State mandated lockdown orders before, and many more voluntarily staying at home, when Trump gave his “we can’t let the cure be worse than the disease...this country isnt built to be locked down” press conference in March. Trump didn’t get America to lock down...

    Saw a clip of Tucker Carlson posing the question “why did Trump even sit with Woodward?” he then insinuates that the answer can only be that Lindsey Graham (who apparently brokered the meeting) willfully sabotaged the President by introducing him to Woodward. To some, like Tucker, POTUS...

    Because he snitched on the boss or because he spent the last 40 years advocating, instituting, and/or funding a movement that culminated in the boss.

    I forgot it’s filled with lies from radical leftists like Dan Coats, General Mattis, and uhh Trump himself. No joke I work with a guy who called Trump a Clinton plant meant to sabotage the GOP until Trump actually won, then became part of the “any critique of Trump is a deep-State takedown”...

    You wondered why one event is being associated with mass spreading and the other isn’t, I gave you an answer. I don’t know what Switzerland or lifestyle choices have to do with it.

    From what I read, a major concern about Sturgis was that the indoor bars and restaurants in the town were open without restrictions / masks.

    There are posters here, apparently yourself included, who pose the issue as you’re either a coward hiding under the bed or you’re living life normally and ignore the virus. I go out to restaurants, typically outdoor seating, and bars—sometimes indoors with open windows—at least once or twice a...
