Re: Random covid-19 observations

I was just going through the big box of long-hair accessories which I either don't use anymore, or never used, and I have a LOT of ponytail-band and other elastic stretchy-things, ranging in size from "a circle barely an inch in diameter" all the way to "headband/hairbands big enough to fit complet...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

A Republican governor would definitely be the only person saying this at this late date right

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

As much as I would like to believe that Vox was intentionally trying to get people killed, I'm still going to have to side with the incompetence version of the theory.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

I became a single-issue voter a few years ago but since my single issue is closing schools there's no one to vote for.

This event is NOT changing my mind.

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Should I feel that way about guns? I used to. Nobody who intended to erode the right would ever get my vote. I’ve come to the view that single issue can take you into pretty uncomfortable company and that you need to evaluate the landscape under some theory of the best bad option. Right now for me ...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Where have there been Democratic governors refusing to shut down schools, etc. while any of their school districts have actually been open? AFAICT, it's Team Blue that's pushing anti-pandemic measures, while Team Red is gleefully going along with Orange Man trying to roll them back, even leaping to...

People come together so long as their interests are not orthogonal, and at a certain point of this thing, that is going to be the case.
You mean after all the old and poor people die? :)
And after they promise never to reopen the schools.

Re: This is how you get guillotines

The thing is, David Geffen and his buds are on the internet too.

They closed the lakefront this morning instead of bringing everyone congregating in groups to the Cook County Jail so they could get the coronavirus like they obviously want to.
