I mean, what is a mask.

"Oh, sounds like they're going to ask me to wear a mask to go to my doctor. Guess I need to oil my guns."

I mean, really?

Way too early.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2021/03/02/abbott-hints-at-exciting-news-tuesday-that-could-include-rollback-of-texas-covid-19-restrictions/

We should wait at least until after everyone who wants a vaccine can get one and it has time to go into effect especially with the mask mandate.

Do you mean we need to stop giving handjobs out amongst ourselves with this great victory, or do you mean like, "Oh shot homeboi popped off before we were ready?"

Shutting down masks, right now, even if it's just the government call is BS and it needs to be called out.

Christ. It's a thin layer of fabric or *even* paper laid between the nose and mouth of people. Why, given the *scientifically proven* facts on this virus and how it is would any conservative say, "ya man f* the masks."

Ya'll are embarrassing yourselves here.

Jesus, why do you keep giving the orange man toad more power then he really has?

"She had an audience?!?"

Who gives a *censored* who that little toad wants to talk to these days. He is *done.*

After Jan 6th even the majority of his own party want absolutely nothing to do with him. Impeachment aside, and I truly do get the idea of telling someone, "No, really, you need to go *censored* yourself," but these are people just like us who need to answer to their constituents. If the will isn't there we don't need to be blaming them, we need to blame the people they answer to.

He's a 75 year old fat man. I don't expect GRRM to give us an answer to AGOIAF, I never have, and I'm just fed up with the rest of you giving this one guy power he doesn't have. Not anymore.

2024!

Christ. Have a little I don't know, something or other in yourself. He's going to stroke out or heart attack.

You're wanting to make a local decision about representation and have the national organization invalidate it because the locals "chose poorly." It doesn't change the matter that they chose her, it's between them and her. Not the rest of us.

That would be so convenient, but no - the national organization, if it doesn't speak now, will be associated with that person's positions, like it or not.  It's not like there is a rule that says the national organization must be punished for the sins of its members.  But the silence is just one more piece of evidence illustrating what the party currently values. And naming her to a committee?  That's not even silence.

Don't they all get named to a committee? Again, could be wrong, willing to hear it. How many of her fellow freshman Reps found themselves named to a Committee? Who didn't?

Everyone gets a committee seat, many get two seats. There is also a pecking order for a lot of them, so you can sometimes tell how a person rates with the leadership based on the committee memberships they have. (exception being when a member wants a seat in a given committee for "reasons")

And yet they can lose all their committee seats. Just look at Rep. King, whose racist comments got him shunned by the Republicans.

Course they can!

We all gonna hold the line so one POS with 1/435 power in the national legislature can hold? Course not! They're a piece of *censored*!  Find some other way to remove him, not interested.

You've all but admitted how your business works and how far their avoidance is. Thanks! Really let's us have a better grasp on your arguments bout the Rona.

Or not. Maybe? Eh. It'll come out eventually and I'll see it on the other end.

Not really sure what any of this means. Many businesses that do involve a high degree of people close to each other (like standing behind a cash in a store) obviously could not social distance while maintaining the same work methods. It is possible to make concerted efforts to modify or renovate these practices, and I doubt that most types of business cannot avoid close social contact. Whether it requires special training from management to find a way to do it is another story.

Oh. Thankful to hear you're unable to control close social distancing. I suppose we need to look at the severity of the disease now. Huh. Look's kinda bad!

I have an idea, how about we all stay away from each other. I know the very idea must be difficult but your own anti-vaxxers(jk cousins) must have enough people to keep you entertained

Social distancing and masks are complementary. There are absolutely times where it's impossible to social distance even for short periods of time: for example, in the case where someone needs to work in the presence of others. It's not either/or, and neglecting mask use at this point in time will significantly aggravate the current situation.

What do you mean "needs" to work in the presence of others? There are a few situations where it is unavoidable to be within 6 feet: for instance movers lifting a heavy object together. But in most cases I doubt there is any need at all to be within 6 feet. In most cases I suspect that breaking social distance is a result of not feeling like going through the often arduous step of establishing how to do things without coming near each other. Schools involving young children are an exception to what I'm saying because obviously they just don't understand.

Cool.

Or just beating you senseless.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caning_of_Charles_Sumner

Quote
The Caning of Charles Sumner, or the Brooks–Sumner Affair, occurred on May 22, 1856, in the United States Senate chamber, when Representative Preston Brooks, a pro-slavery Democrat from South Carolina, used a walking cane to attack Senator Charles Sumner, an abolitionist Republican from Massachusetts, in retaliation for a speech given by Sumner two days earlier in which he fiercely criticized slaveholders, including a relative of Brooks. The beating nearly killed Sumner and it contributed significantly to the country's polarization over the issue of slavery. It has been considered symbolic of the "breakdown of reasoned discourse" and the use of violence that eventually led to the Civil War.

Nah my friend one of the reasons I end up respecting the American system.

I mean, in that case we needed better security but if you're going to run your mouth watch your back. Basic gangland procedure.

Better, poorly, whatever. It's one of the arrows in their quiver, "The committee of Education!" and I'm trying to get a grasp on how normal that is.

I'm of the opinion that the House Committee on Education and Labor is basically the basement in terms of committee membership.  Take a look at some of the names?  Ever heard of any of them?  When is the last time they've been in the news?  Never.  She was sent to the basement and not given a second membership. 

Could House Republicans do more?  Sure.  But they havn't.  If the Democrats want to get rid of her they can open up expulsion proceedings but will need 2/3s of the House.  Since 1861, only House members who have been convicted of crimes have been expelled.  That's not just a Republican thing.  Want her expelled?  Have a DA charge her with a crime and convict her.

Totes, my man.

Have her quietly taken out back and shot in the head. Metaphorically speaking of course.

That was what we could have done before but they've spread her poison and allowed it to become a replacement for Trumpism. She'd just be a martyr now.

I think the brouhaha over the Education committee is that she has said that school shootings are false flag operations and/or did not happen and that the families are actors.

Eh.

That sounds a lot like stuff that doesn't matter. At least, to the kids learning.

What are we teaching kids in HS?  Are they learning logic? Basic civics?

Could just me being real ignorant right about now, but I'm not seeing the gulf.

Yeah, she's elected. To you, that means she has unimaginable cosmic power, to others it means she has been chosen in a free and fair election to represent her constituency. You gonna remove their voice in the Congress because she said some crazy stuff? Seems a bold move to me, Cotton. Let's see how it works.

Maybe her constituency consists mostly of *censored*bags. Eh, it happens. As mentioned, she's one out of hundreds. Her term is two years. She'll be gone sooner rather then later and if it wasn't for the media amplifying her bull*censored* beyond any reasonable standard she'd barely be known and she'd have no power.

Only the Georgian crazies supported her before. Well done! She's a national figure now! Now she can get *all* the crazies!

I'm sorry my friend, but you're wrong.

This was not about a belief or even a meme.  Hedge funds have been using these tactics to crush companies into the ground whilst they made bIllions for decades.

They made a bet on GME to fold. They put their normal enterprises behind it to guarantee it. What they didn't expect was Reddit to come up and punch them in the face. I'm not sure how much you all are understanding this right now, but the big billionaire boys are absolutely *censored*ting their pants at what is going on. They've been caught out.

Google fee-free apps, which were advertised as being on the side of the "little people," they were curtailed yesterday so people could only sell the stock, not buy. In other words, the only move people using that platform could make would be to help the hedgefunders.

Who knew that Biden's unity would come about from a bunch of Redditors deciding to screw over some hedge funds. Politicians on both sides coming together to target the blatant and illegal means the people in charge are using to try and curtail this.

And I've been trying to educate myself on what exactly is going on. This could easily get much crazier before it's over. It's called a short squeeze because the people who bet on stocks lowering in price aren't exactly forced to buy the stock back, but they do have to pay interest on what they borrowed originally and said interest is based on the current price of the stock. So they'll at some point be forced to buy at whatever price. Except the Redditors are declaring they're not going to sell. Which will force prices higher and higher...

Honestly, this *censored*show couldn't have happened to better people. The sociopaths behind Wall Street tactics are being bent over a barrel and I couldn't be happier.

This paranoia about innovation replacing jobs with robots only exists in a mindset that declares that people must work.

As technology advances we'll get closer and closer to the point of Star Trek post scarcity. If robots can actually do almost everything, there'll be no reason for anyone to work except in areas they're passionate about. Art. Community involvement. Continued innovation.

If technology advances and more and more jobs become replaced, the base economic model itself will have to change. The only other option will be a world with the .001 percent robot owners facing down the billions of starving and jobless people.

Universal base income. It's the future.

Now, John Oliver has his biases and all but his team actually spends between two and three weeks researching every long drop segment they do. And they're good at it.

I can understand that the idea of the Confederacy can be attractive. However it's what they were fighting for that is disgusting. State's rights were an excuse, an excuse needed to allow them to continue to enslave human beings.

Anyone who spent a modicum of time examining history beyond the admittedly weak American standards understands this. And this is why I'm genuinely confused as to how anyone, at least on this site, could possibly try to excuse people invading our Capitol building whilst waving Confederate flags.

State's rights are one thing, but the Confederate flag being waved shows that these people have an attachment to a mindset where if the State declares it, people can be enslaved. In other words, two wolves and one sheep voting on what's for dinner.

If said voter ID is provided free of charge by the state, I can agree to go along with it in the name of compromise.

Some states that require ID, such as Texas, already provide free ID cards. But I don't believe this is a strong enough compromise.  I personally believe that all American citizens, either now or at birth, should be implanted with a microchip created by Bill Gates.  This chip must be called the Municipal American Readable Chip.  Nobody can vote without a valid chip scan from a scanning machine called the Ballot Electronic Assurance Scanning Terminal, also paid for by the government by raising taxes on lottery winners. 

This will obviously infuriate liberals because, you know, they won't be able to cheat on elections anymore.
It will equally infuriate conservatives who don't want a Bill Gates chip embedded in their wrists and turning them gay. 

You know you have a good compromise when everyone is upset.  I call it the Solon Method of compromise.

Latest news has it that the new varient has been seen in Denmark. Given the enhanced transmisabilty and how a good number of covid infections go undetected, it's most likely that the new varient is alive and well all across Europe.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but it's looking like the fishing dispute was typical politician brinkmanship. Now that we're closer to the deadline it looks like they're getting much more serious about things and a deal might well come in before Christmas.

"How do you prove fraud in a secret ballot election?  And eliminate any use of ID or apparently any comparison of signatures of the alleged voter.

How can anyone trust losing in a system where there's no way to catch cheaters?"

Didn't make history a major in uni so I could be wrong, but can you tell us how conservative states protected against said hypothetical silent ballot abuse?

If they didn't, can you explain how the republic lived and prospered for these 240 odd years?

How have things changed so much that now it's a national emergency? Beyond, of course, your side losing.

If the constituents of these people are demanding they do this then we apparently have an issue, because what they're asking is to use interstate judicial law to literally overturn election results. Christ, the Confederates could only wish they had the balls to go for that argument when *they* didn't win the presidential election.

No. Come on. Just...no.

You know my guilty  pleasure? Deffo one hundred percent Hell's Kitchen. I myself know it's dumb but that's why it's the guilty pleasure.


And my favourite part of the show isn't when Ramsey completely loses his *censored*, it's when he starts quietly muttering the above, looking them in the eye. Like a piece of his soul has just been removed and sent to Alpha Centauri because someone brought him a raw steak after he chewed them out for it being too well done five minutes earlier.

These people are absolutely shameless. I literally muttered to myself no, haha, they're just having a laugh.

You learn something new every day. Today I learned there is a 130 year precedent in which an acknowledged lame duck president lays off on procedures for instituting federal death penalties because it's only polite to let the guy you got *censored*canned for to make those decisions instead. It's like you're respecting the will of the voters.

So Trump has decided to Trump all over that and his DOJ is putting on a full court press to execute just as many people as he can possibly.get away with before Jan 20th. Never mind the scumbags getting the treatment or how 5 percent of people put to death are actually innocent, this isn't and shouldn't be a death penalty debate.

All I'm saying is people still bring up the W key keyboard thing 20 years later and this guy is still doing this and no one cares, it's like he shot a guy on Fifth Avenue.

Nah, I'm in the UK at the moment and we're definitely screwed. Hundred percent.

Johnson was at the forefront the entire time for this entire debacle and he was Trump 2.0, some demented fool who thought he could mess his hair up a bit and look like ome of the "regular" people.

One of the only good things about Covid is he walked into the PM's office on the back of rainbows and promises to wealthy people, massive *censored* eating grin on his face about how he tricked everyone.

And now when you see him speak publicly you can see it in his eyes just how tired he is, this virus and the Brexit negotiations have defeated him utterly. Best thing is how you can see that he knows it.

PS  - When I said he was at the front of the debacle he was one of the head figures of the Leave campaign from early days. Not Covid. He's sucked balls on Covid as well though.

On a much less preachy note, lolol at the frigging conservative wing of American politics (Democracy! Freedom! *censored* yeah World Police!) getting so very worked up over

A) More of us voted? They were probably all plebs! The tragedy!
B) Let's make it easier for eligible voters to vote?!? Back in my grandfather's day, he had to walk uphill past Voldemort probably in the snow to get to the voting booth and he didn't complain and neither did the conservatives. That stuff worked back then and it can work now. PS Grandaddy was black sure that didn't make a difference though.

PSPS Grandaddy wasn't actually Black was just trying to pull the joke off.
