  1. Very glad to hear that. However, if you reopen your schools, you will turn back the other way.
  2. The list is a bit different if you look at total cases per capita, which is a more useful number in determining your own risk as resident of the state. In deaths per capita, the top ten states are Louisiana, Arizona, Florida, New Jersey, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and the District of Colombia. Of those ten only New Jersey, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia are blue. As pointed out Florida is a swing state. The other six states generally vote Republican.
  3. The people didn't break into their property. They broke into the property of the gated community in which they lived, but not into their personal property.
  4. To avoid talk of the GOP convention that might be overly political for this thread, jump to 1:13 video to get into the school reopening part.
  5. So, I just put in for a week of time off right after the election. You know, just in case, our democracy depends on 2 to 4 million people showing up in Washington DC and demanding that the vote be honestly reported and it's result honored. I'm a middle age, middle class, white guy and my student activist 30+ years behind me. It is bizarre that I would even have to consider the need for such a thing, much less that I have requested time off over 3 months in advance to cover the thing. So hopefully in November, my wife and I will take a short fall vacation and laugh a
  6. Different they. E[stein's (alleged) killing would have been to stop him from giving names. The case the judge has been assigned is about money. Different parties, different goals, different methods.
  7. True, but I would still rather not make it official.
  8. Are you sure? Russia and China seems to be the obvious takers on this offer.
  9. Actually, it would have been about 70 AD. That was when the Second Temple fell which was one of the big end of day prophesies (Matthew 24:2), and was still early enough that some of the people people Jesus spoke to after his resurrection would have been alive to see his return as promised (Matthew 16:28).
  10. I'm pretty sure csyphrett was referring to Andres Guardado. Here is the Wikipedia article on the killing. It is seems to be fairly up to date. Link
  11. Well, no. Only Native Americans living on Native land get the tax break, and as of last count only about 9% of Oklahoma residents are Native American. Some of that 9% doubtlessly live in the western part of the state and thus would go on paying Oklahoma state income tax. Also, Native Americans as a group are economically disadvantaged and thus don't have all that much income to tax. So, I would be very surprised if Oklahoma lost even 5% of it's tax base.
  12. Apropos of nothing, King Cyrus is not mentioned a single time in the New Testament.
  13. This is so not true. We play it, and our women's team is the world's best. We just don't watch it.
  14. I'm not finding collaboration that he did not flee the scene or that protesters attacked his car. Everything that I have read has state troopers claiming to have pulled him over and describing him as “reserved and sullen”. Maybe the video from the Ian Miles Cheong tweet substantiates the claim, but you posted a screen shot instead of a link. I don't have a Twitter account, and I am not going to get one just so I can go far enough back in Cheong's Twitter feed to see the 24 second video.
  15. Scottish Fox is right about the guy needing psychiatric care, though. It just needed to start a lot earlier.
  16. The Clinton states numbers were being pulled up hard by New York. Indeed, during that early period, the national numbers were largely made up of New York cases.
  17. I could say many things about this video, most of which would get me kicked off this board for obscenity. So rather than do that, I am going to say one thing. If the Senate Republicans are planning to do what Beau say they are, they are idiots. They will throw open our country to huge foreign influence and they will still lose the election. Are they really so dumb as to fail to realize that they would be starting a game that the Democrats could play also, and that they would gain no net advantage? While Russia would certainly pay to keep their man in the White House, China woul
  18. Okay, but think of what Mayor Krewson did. By giving the names and addresses of people who suggested that she defund the police, she ensured that they could not feel safe and their homes and neighborhoods. Instead they have to worry about reprisal to themselves and family members. They have to worry no knock warrants and "routine" traffic stops that magically lead to drugs being found in their vehicles. Nor is this intimidation limited to those that she mentioned in her Facebook video, it extends to those who suggested she defund or clamp down on the police that she didn't mention by name.
  19. No, tickets weren't going to run out but seats were. The venue only seats 19,000 and if hundreds of thousands people had actually shown up most of them would never have made it through the front entrance. Most people don't want to hire a baby sitter and drive for possibly hours to an event only to get turned away at the door. So, all the talk about huge numbers of ticket request was bound to have discouraged many people who would have shown up if they had felt that they would definitely get attend the rally inside the stadium.
  20. TikTok Teens and K-Pop Stans Say They Sank Trump Rally If you read the article, you will discover that it really comes down to a 51 year old black woman living in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Through her suggestion to the internet, she probably prevented numerous Covid-19 deaths. Way to go Mary Jo, you are my new hero.
