    Your talking about something quite different than what I'm talking about. If the excess deaths from COVID 19 were from terrorists injecting patients with COVID 19, that's still excess deaths from COVID 19. That's different from saying all the people who died with co-morbidities died from something other than COVID 19. Some of the people who died because governors sent sick people back to the nursing home died solely from COVID 19.

    Dr. Atlas sounds like Dr. Fauci did back in March. The lockdowns were supposedly about "flattening the curve" so that the health system wouldn't be overwhelmed. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/03/13/815502262/flattening-a-pandemics-curve-why-staying-home-now-can-save-lives Note that a "flattened curve" equals the same number of cases but spread out over a longer period of time which theoretically should mean fewer deaths because the healthcare system never gets overwhelmed. And in the U.S. ... it didn't. And how many deaths did Dr. Faucistein predict? "I can't give you a number," he said. "I can't give you a realistic number until we put into the factor of how we respond. If we're complacent and don't do really aggressive containment and mitigation, the number could go way up and be involved in many, many millions."

    Do you think that was from 1) people dying in nursing homes that would have died anyway, or 2) people getting sick in nursing homes from COVID that otherwise wouldn't have caught it? If you are saying #2 or a combination of 1 and 2 then you haven't disputed my point. Excess deaths are excess deaths regardless of how they happened. And again, the drop in the death rate can only be explained by an actual previous spike in the death rate.

    Yes. By having an actual plan an implementing it. For example: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?549866-How-to-turn-protest-into-powerful-change Right now we are floundering. I disagree vehemently with your assessment. Do you remember the Tea Party movement? It was a mass movement on the right largely galvanized by a backlash to the TARP bailout. Remember Occupy Wallstreet? It was a mass movement on the left largely galvanized by a backlash to the TARP bailout. Remember the "Unite The Right" rally in Charlottesville? One of the organizers was from Occupy Wallstreet. How do you explain people from such disparate perspectives being angry about the same thing if it was all about Marxism?

    It's not that simple. Look at George Floyd. Some of the same people who will say "He didn't die of a knee on the neck. It was COVID." Will turn around and say "All of the people who died with co-morbidities died of the co-morbitities and not COVID." If a nursing home that normally had 100 deaths per year all of a sudden had 1000 deaths in a year, it's likely that even with the co-morbidities the COVID was responsible for the increased deaths. The stronger argument is that the death rate has dropped off. That also under cuts the "there was no pandemic" argument. If there never were excess deaths in the first place than how has the death rate dropped off?

    I think you're misreading the polling. Correct or not it's not showing a 45 state landslide. That said, it's possible Biden could get the senate and keep the house. With the exception of the courts...but the "conservatives" on the courts are inconsistent. They seem more interested in protecting the "status quo" no matter what it is. Which means the best they can be counted on doing is slowing things down....a little. Yeah. Except for talk radio. Old news.

    I'm surprised the New York Times allowed something this close to the truth to be published. Yes it's a whitewash, but it hits at the truth that the Hunter Biden story that has been buried is at least as credible (more so actually) than the Russiagate story that got pushed. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/27/opinion/hunter-biden-story-media.html It should be possible to cover revelations about the Biden family that are neither disinformation nor the greatest scandal of our time.

    It's the 21st century. Why the hell were paper copies of these documents being shipped when they could have been scanned in, encrypted and sent electronically or even (old fashioned I know) faxed? And if they have backups, why don't they just release the documents on a website right now? The election is now days away. This makes no sense.

    LOL. As should be expected, Dannno got it right. Roma, while looking weird (in a hot kinda way...sorry but that's my opinion) is an anti-feminist. (I've seen some of her other videos). She's calling out the woman getting upset over not being dominated in the bedroom for being sexist for generalizing to all men and not taking personal responsibility for not knowing how to get what she wants. It's also interesting that Roma brought up the "they don't want false rape allegations" point. You can't re-train men to be passive....then get mad when their passive. And yeah, I guy can be dominant online and not be prepared to take up that same persona in person. Anyhow....I thought it was a funny video. :D

    Not a bad idea actually. Some "institutions of higher learning" induce students with inflated job placement rates that make it sound like you're guaranteed a good paying job (McDonald's doesn't count) once you graduate. On the flipside there is at least one software development school (can't think of the name) that doesn't charge you up front, helps you find a job, then takes a cut out of what you make until there paid back. In other words, if these schools believe in their product so much, why don't they basically float the up front cost of the education and get the money back on the back end? If someone washes out they can write it off.

    That's interesting but surprising news coming from liberal Washington state. Note that they settled this on 4th and 5th amendment grounds and ignored the 2nd amendment. I guess the only way to get through to the left on the 2nd amendment is that to enforce it you have to gut the other 8 that they don't like. (They're not to fond of the 10th amendment either).

    You don't understand because you haven't been properly reprogrammed yet. Gender is a choice that you can change with or without the help of hormones and an operation. The gender that you want to sleep with is not a choice. It's fixed at birth.* Actually I have an LGBTQ relative who told me "You can't use this against me in an argument...but I have to admit that if gender is fluid then sexual preference has to be a choice as well. That said that's not an excuse to oppress people." And....I agree. I don't want anybody oppressed despite what they choose to do. But the problem is....what is oppression? If I have a preference as a parent to want my children to grow up with the same values I have how am I oppressing anyone? I had a lesbian friend who openly admitted that children are better off with a mother and father in the home. I was like "But doesn't that go against your community?" She said "Sure. But I think a child is better of adopted by a loving gay couple than living in foster care." Okay. I get that. But why do I get hated on just for preferring my children establish the ideal heterosexual family? If one or both of them does something different I won't stop loving them as a dad. But that goes for anything that they might do. It's funny, but said, that in the black feminist movie "Waiting To Exhale" the women sit around complaining about all the reasons they can't find a good black man. It was "the good ones are already married, or with white women, or gay." (I may have missed a few). If that's the problem, then why are women, especially black women (the Black Lives Matter founders for example) encouraging the source of their own misery? /rant
