    I might be off in my reckoning, but I think what most average Democratic voters want for the next 4 years isn't a protracted fight about gun rights, or healthcare, or abortion, or any of the typical 'lefty issues'; it's simply to steady the ship and have an end to the absolute insanity of the current President and the new type of politics.

    Exactly.  There is only one issue that matters in this election: Putting a functioning adult in the Whitehouse.

    I get so damned tired of the candidates laying out elaborate plans, and attacking each other in a circular firing squad. Newsflash: The Executive branch does not make the law; The Legislative branch does that. Need proof? After promising to replace ACA with "something better, that is cheaper, and covers everybody", the current Whitehouse Clown spent two years trying to sabotage ACA while his party controlled the House & Senate, yet failed.

    I hear 5.56 is absolutely the best ammo to use against the virus.

     

    The virus its self isn't as dangerous as the zombies it creates.

    Yeah Tesla sales are definitely a Lieberal hoax.

    I've heard George Soros is buying all those Tesla's just to make Tesla look good.

    We shall be watching "Contagion" this evening.

    According to Warner Bros., the film was listed as No. 270 among its catalog titles at the end of December. Since the start of 2020, it has jumped to second, bested only by Harry Potter movies. “Contagion” is also trending on Amazon Prime Video and has flirted with the iTunes top 10.

    They didn't.  Better candidates kept splitting the vote instead of bowing out of the race. 33% wins over 22% / 29% / 18% etc.

    And that is why we need ranked-choice voting in the primaries, as well as the general elections.

    Here in CO we have mail-in ballots which we received a couple weeks prior to Super Tuesday. Anyone who mailed in their ballots early, for someone who dropped out just prior to Super Tuesday, got screwed because their vote didn't count. That is another problem ranked-choice would solve in the primaries.

    You know, elements.  Like fire and air.  That's what scientists call them.

    You guys are funny...Reuters reports the WH is CONSIDERING and it must be something against brown people.  Have you visited Mexico?  And I mean more than swimming over to the bar at the resort.  Do you think their reporting of cases is anything close to being accurate?

    So you would have us believe the reporting out of Mexico is as lacking in credibility as the statements out of the current Whitehouse?

    DId you miss this part?

    “We’re thinking about all borders, we have to think about that border,” Trump said. “This is not a border that seems to be much of a problem right now, we hope we will not have to do that.”

    Did you miss the part that came before that?

    “We are thinking about the southern border, ” Trump said, speaking during a press conference at the White House. “We are looking at that very strongly.“

    Trump’s comments come after the news agency Reuters reported the White House was considering imposing entry restrictions with Mexico to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, although there are only 3 confirmed cases there. The United States, on the other hand, has confirmed 66 cases of the illness.

    There are more than 85,000 confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide and at least 2,941 deaths, the overwhelming majority of them in China, where the illness first surfaced. Asia and Europe are the hardest hit areas of the world, while Latin America has reported very few cases so far. In addition to Mexico, Brazil has reported 1 confirmed case of the virus. 

    Trump appeared to roll back his statement when challenged by a reporter over his reason for considering action on the U.S. southern border given how few cases of the coronavirus there are in Mexico at the moment.

    Ha! The last time I prayed to Jesus I was 17 and having my only bad acid trip. I prayed that my brain would not be too messed up and that I would feel normal again some day. So far my prayer has not been answered.

    I knew a guy who liked to do acid nearly every weekend.

    Then one Monday evening, he suddenly realized that earlier that day (while still under the influence) he had visited the local Marine Corp Recruiter's office, and discussed enlisting.

    That scared him so badly, that he quit taking acid.
