  6. A let us remember that even after resigning in disgrace, and being pardoned, that asshole Nixon still would not admit he ever did anything wrong: nd
  7. No, they did not. They voted for Clinton. The Electoral College put him in office.
  8. Either: a) No one is above the law. b) We have two classes of people in the USA: Those subject to the law, and those who are above it. The whole idea of a pardon is disgusting. That would be letting the next wannabe-Mussolini know that there is no reason to pay any heed to what is legal, since political office will give him immunity.

    covid-19

    I follow a number of UK moto-vloggers, and one of them (Richy Vida) just posted this first-person account of getting COVID-19. A couple things I found very interesting were: How he thinks he caught it, and how abruptly the assorted symptoms presented:

    covid-19

    FDA has approved a DIY home test. Requires a prescription, and costs $50. The company said that when it compared its test to one of the most reliable FDA-authorized tests out now, it agreed with positive and negative results 94.1 percent and 98 percent of the time respectively in a study of more than 100 people in California. A rapid at-home covid-19 test — for under $50 — just got FDA approval https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/11/18/home-test-coronavirus-covid-fda/
  21. National political reporter Robert Costa says he keeps hearing from people around Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani that they are challenging the results of the election not because they think there is any chance for Trump to catch up to Biden in actual votes, but in order to try to prevent key states from certifying their votes. This would throw the election into the House of Representatives, where each state gets one vote. This, they believe, would give Trump a win.
