    GM Joe reacted to Lord Liaden in Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)   
    The lies, incompetence, and corruption of the current presidential administration and Republican roster of legislators has been on display so many times, I'm no longer inclined to pretend impartiality or give them the benefit of the doubt. They had their chance to show their quality, and they blew it spectacularly. They have no credibility left.

    DiMezzo is the High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church. Her campaign slogan was "F*** the Police".
     
    She attributes her win to voter stupidity in not researching the candidates and what they stand for.

    I just hope people are aware that there's more to this election than "get rid of Trump". He's a consequence of the problem...not the problem itself. We can't go back to "the way things were before Trump" because that is what got us Trump to begin with. Establishment control of the country....lack of awareness or concern for the issues of most of the populace....and a feeling that the system is rigged (because it is).

    I'm not an epidemiologist and don't play one on TV, so definitely do what you think is right!
     
    That said, I was just relaying what a segment on our local NBC TV news was saying last night. Unfortunately I can't find that segment on their crappy website, and most google search results on the topic seem to be from back in the beginning of the pandemic when we didn't know as much.
     
    Personally, I've been treating surface transmission with a lot less fear than I did at the beginning. I don't wipe down my groceries or delivered packages any more. I still wash my hands after being out, and I don't touch my face while I'm out, tho. Heck, I still use hand sanitizer before I get in my car in the parking lot, so I don't contaminate its surfaces. So I'm not exactly being consistent!
     
    But I am trying to be less paranoid than I used to be, since epidemiologists have been saying surface transmission is possible but appears to be somewhat rare.

    Our cure is going to be worse, because it's the worst of all worlds.  Inadequate precautions, mixed messages, refusing to abide by (and enforce) fundamental practices.  It's going to stretch out our economic issues FAR longer than other countries.  Europe is trying to reopen sensibly...whether they can or not, we'll have to see.  
     
    Sweden found out, too.  They did nothing for a long time.  Their economy STILL got blasted.  This is not either-or...it's not "we stay open and thrive, or we shut down and wither."  If we stay open, we still do not thrive.  That's the cornerstone takeaway.
     
    There is no good outcome here.  There is probably no mediocre outcome.  Those are simply not on the table.  MANY, MANY people will get crushed by this.  Overall there is nothing that can be done to stop it completely.  It CAN be slowed.  Germany shows that.  South Korea shows that.  But there will be massive harm, directly and indirectly.  There are, however, TERRIBLE approaches.  Sweden.  Brazil.  The US.  Major business downturn AND failure to contain.

    Police are responding to protests against police brutality with... more police brutality.  I think that pretty much sums it up.
     
    The total resistance to any actual dialogue about changing police procedures, or ending coverups for police misconduct, has been really eye opening.

    Legitimate addressing of the issues (instead of token gestures) would end all this, but...as usual...America refuses to admit there is any problem.

    So,  I've been thinking about what I would  have done in that couple's shoes. I've landed on: I'd pull out a couple of folding tables, set them up near the sidewalk, and lay out some refreshments for the protestors. Really, screw that mayor.
     
    On the flip side, if I experienced any spillover onto my property (which means near my family), I would act to squelch it.
     
    And the couple in the pics needs to have their guns removed until they prove they can handle them safely. They also need brandishing charges.

    Literally that attitude is "if you want the services 90% of your city's budget goes to then you have to put up with us planting evidence or beating people we don't like and us putting toy guns on kids we accidentally shoot so we don't have to see a courtroom."
