  1. I am pretty sure Rubio himself has signaled support for possible military intervention in Venezuela. I don’t think this was a secret? Neocons were openly discussing it months ago from what I remember.
  2. The official stance of the party is to be against mask wearing during a pandemic, to be against BLM protests after the country saw another black man dehumanized and murdered by the state and to be against the removal of pro-slavery symbols of traitors. Even in a country of low information voters this is one hell of an electoral posture. God speed in November.
  3. Heard from an unreliable source in Richmond that white neighborhoods have been destroyed and Antifa supersoliders have taken over the city.
  4. “I never thought leapords would come to eat my face”, sobs the woman from the Leapords Eating Faces Party.
  5. Michael Bloomberg should give his billions to the Lincoln Project and just have them destroy Donnie all over the country. Never seen negative messaging this good from any Dem group.
  6. Big news out of the UK, that dexamethasone found to reduce mortality quite significantly in severe COVID patients in a double blind clinical trial. 1/3rd reduction in mortality is what the data supposedly shows. Trial was shut down early, which is usually a sign that the data is sound and the drug is really effective. It is also quite cheap and widely available all over the world.
  7. If wearing a mask triggered the libs, you would have a bunch of dopes walking around with MAGA masks everywhere.
  8. Because it is relevant to why some countries have successfully moved to a situation where they can have live sports, and we are still bumbling around like a third world country.
  9. I think it would have. The followers of Cult 45 would do whatever Dear Leader said. The problem is that he spent most of his time rambling nonsense, called it a hoax, then called it a governors problem, refused to wear a mask himself and all around set a terrible example for the people who view him as a leader. He could have listened to his own experts who were warning him and giving him sensible advice. But he’s a moron, who is sadly enabled and propelled into power by millions of others just like him.
  10. The conclusion that Hillary’s campaign may have reached, that she had a safe enough polling margin to ignore states wasn’t really based on any kind of solid data. At this time, when Biden’s national average is close to +10, Hillary was hovering at +2. Prior the election, polls had her exactly where she wound up nationally. I agree with the premise that you should campaign regardless of what the polling data tells you and assume the worst. The problem with Hillary was that she surrounded herself with idiots, which isn’t surprising. The Clinton’s have time and time again have found themselves in the company of the worst type of Beltway vultures in existence.
  11. It is what it is. At some point, you can't discount what are trends visible in multiple polls from different groups. I'm not sure why people are surprised. The economy is depressed, there is mass social unrest and a pandemic is ongoing. This is about as bad as it can get in a developed nation. People aren't going to be lining up to vote for the incumbent, when he barely coasted to victory last time and never received a broad public mandate for his vile agenda. And his party in power suffered historic defeats in the midterm and the national situation has only gotten worse since then.
  12. Today is a major L for conservatives. Aside from the big ruling, also an L on immigration enforcement and expansion of gun rights. Really quite remarkable that even with a deeply conservative bench, the most insane ideas out of the right still keep losing.
  13. It’s fair to assume that Roberts only sided with the majority because of Gorsuch. By siding with the majority, he got to assign a libertarian the job of writing the majority opinion, since he’s the senior most member of the majority side. Otherwise, it would have been RBG writing this ruling, and it would have read very differently than what Gorsuch said. Had Gorsuch sided with the conservatives, this is a 5-4 ruling in favor of LGBTQ workplace discrimination. This is 100% Trump’s first judicial pick “betraying” a core legislative and judicial demand of the religious bigots. Lots and lots of social conservatives realizing that they have once again been sold out at the altar of right wing libertarianism LOL.
  14. This is a Roe v Wade level of loss for Christian bigots in this country. And it was delivered by Neil Gorsuch. Evangelicals are in meltdown mode online right now. Look at this clown:
  15. Nah man, this is good. Evangelicals even at their worst can’t get a stacked conservative court to sign on to their bigotry. I feel better about our democracy today.
  16. Not sure how true this is but I heard this story from a good source who works with with Montgomery County Council. A while ago Bethesda studios was on the verge of relocating from the county and the council started panicking since they are a big employer and attraction to live and work here. So the council asked them what they can offer to incentivize them to stay. Bethesda’s request was a pedestrian walkway across from their office building. That’s what the nerds wanted.
  17. This could have been us if we weren’t governed by dumb people .
  18. This is a use of gene drives that’s relatively uncontroversial, but this is a technology space that can cause a lot of problems as it matures and gains more acceptance. I am usually very pro new-biotech but this is one of the few advancements where I see a great potential for some really dangerous outcomes. To my knowledge, DARPA is the only federal agency in the world that has funded research into how to actually reverse a gene drive that is out of control. That’s not good, especially since DARPA’s project funding typically ends in a 2-4 year window. This needs to be a sustained form of research, whereas all the money is essentially going towards how to conduct a gene drive, with few platforms to actually stop or reverse one if you see adverse consequences.
  19. No matter who it is, the WH medical service will never release to the public an unhealthy diagnosis of a POTUS. That’s a national security breach of the worst kind.
  20. Imagine my surprise when it turned out that Antifa supersoldiers did not in fact rape and plunder white neighborhoods. Anyone got the beat from Richmond boards on which fictional threat we should be freaking out about? Are the bicycle riding hipsters planning on looting and plundering Cary Street businesses?
  21. Millions of digital token junkies. Still better than hard drugs I suppose.
  22. GTA V is the new Skyrim. Just milking that cow across every platform.
  23. Richmond today compared to Richmond 10 years ago is such a vastly improved city. My wife and I make multiple trips a year to visit family and just enjoy all the good food and bars. We are reading some peak fragile white people nonsense right now. If there was a male version of a Karen, this is it.
