    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    I can't believe how jealous you are of a president who can express himself so cogently on Twitter. Take this missive from within the last few minutes:

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    Wonder if asshole Brit Hume will tweet about how ridiculous Ivanka and her kids look in their masks. Ivanka has nepotism issues, but does seem to be a lot less douchey than Don and Eric.

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    The debate over reopening the economy is now a more legitimate one two months in. The problem is that there are so many people who have been whining about the lockdown from the very beginning. One of those was a friend of mine who was willing to sacrifice 500K American lives if it meant keeping everything open. Even Donald Trump knows that 500K dead Americans would render his reelection chances nil. And now we have people who decide to wear masks, as Joe Biden did yesterday, derided as "virtue-signalers." This is America 2020. Bravo.

    The "Re-Opening" the Economy Thread

    What you say is true. However, my question is: who were the Fox primetimers (probably excluding Carlson, who was taking it seriously) railing against when they were decrying the "hysteria" over the virus in February?? Somebody was raising the alarm, and I'll credit GOP-ers Tom Cotton and Liz Cheney, as well as Democrat Chris Murphy in that group. There needs to be a 9/11-type commission on this when all is said and done. As far as Trump goes, what has been disturbing to me was that he was comparing this to the flu as late as March 9, only two days before the travel ban from Europe was announced. Not to mention his continued BS on Twitter during the two months since, most recently his Scarborough BS. While we now have 100K dead. Bravo.

    Watching games of the past.

    I probably enjoyed the win over the Eagles at FedEx in 2005 (ended when Ryan Grant picked off McNabb) more than the season finale. It felt great to win the game at the Linc (I was there) punctuated by Sean's dive into the end zone and clinch a playoff berth, but a shell of itself Eagles team had us on the ropes for a lot of the game, and if we had lost that one after having won the last four, it would've been a serious gut punch. The 2015 game at the Linc was sweet, as we pretty much dominated them in all facets, but look at what has happened since. Skins have been mediocre to lousy, while the Eagles finally got their Lombardi. Ugh...………….

    Watching games of the past.

    How long have you lived in the Philly area? I was born in the DC area but lived near Philly from 1976-1988, when I came back to DC after college to start work. The playoff game at the Vet in early 1991 where we whipped the Eagles, avenged the Body Bag Game, and sent Buddy Ryan packing, ranks just below the Super Bowls and NFCCG win over Dallas in terms of most satisfying Skins wins.

    Hume then accused Biden of "virtue signaling" by wearing the mask. I honestly wish I could just hide out somewhere without the temptation of social media until November. The atmosphere in this country is becoming just so increasingly poisonous and is bleeping disgusting.

    Presidential Election:11/3/20 - Joe vs Twitter Terrorist

    Hume complained about Trump's Scarborough tweet (he has alsocomplained about Trump's counterproductive tweets in the past) and I thought "yeah, but you're still going to happily pull the lever for the president in November." And today tweets the pic about Biden wearing a mask during the visit to the Delaware cemetery. Brit is a shallow asshole. No other way to put it.

    Vegas has the T Mobile arena, MGM Grand Garden, Mandalay Bay Events Center, Thomas and Mack Center, and a locals casino where the old AHL team used to play. All not terribly far from each other. Not sure how many of those could be repurposed for NHL.

    They've won two home MNF games at FedEx since the place opened in 1997. One was 1997, the other 2012.

    I guess we'll be able to debate whether he said "beat Joe Biden" or "be Joe Biden."

    The Forthcoming Recession is Here. Enjoy!

    Saw this article on Market Watch today regarding the stock market: https://www.marke****ch.com/story/did-the-coronavirus-keep-the-stock-market-from-taking-an-even-bigger-hit-2020-05-21?mod=home-page What bothers me is: don't the conditions that persisted pre-coronavirus still exist? I think there's a consensus that the markets are still overvalued. I'm not sure that the Dow will make it back down to the 18.5K level it hit before the 6K rebound since, but I can see it going back down to around 20K before it gets back to its February highs of 29.5K.
