  1. There's no rule that says Trump can't nominate himself . . .
  2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. I look forward to McConnel announcing that the Senate will not vote on a new Justice so close to an Election. https://www.npr.org/2020/09/18/100306972/justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-champion-of-gender-equality-dies-at-87
  3. How about a new scandal? https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-fdny-911-health-program-treasury-20200910-s7yam67j6vhmhbdzg6ordanfdm-story.html The Trump Treasury Department siphoning congressionally appropriated funds meant to pay for 9/11 workers' healthcare, or so the article claims. Reading the article, I don't know if the funds were siphoned or just withheld.
  4. A caravan of Trump supporters went into Portland, and one of the Trump supporters got shot. details are sparse at this point. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/what-happened-in-the-portland-shooting/ar-BB18wudg?ocid=msedgntp Let us hope that this election cycle will be peaceful.
  5. Self defense in the feedback loop sense. The protestors thought he was coming armed against them, so they rushed, the way people fantasize they will in a spree shooter incident.
  6. Ouch, yes limiting the number of drop off locations would make that not work at all. Long lines, etc.
  7. Mail-in ballots don't have to go through USPS. There is always a direct drop-off location. When I lived in Oregon, I often used them because I was a cheapskate and didn't want to pay postage. Anyway, they look a lot like post boxes. Just pop in your ballot. If you are registered to vote in the US election, just ask your local election office where yours is.
  8. "You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George Washington" It was an interesting read! It wasn't a hatchet-job; the author was always ready to praise Washington for his courage, fiscal management, and humility. At the same time, the book dealt with Washington's slaves in a blunt way. It maintains that the word 'plantation' should always be read as 'forced labor camp', for example. Or, on the last page, it details how and where Washington and his family were buried, then immediately describes the field where Washington placed his slaves in unmarked graves.
  9. Wow. If Vox is reporting this, President Trump must really have had something to do with this Israel and the United Arab Emirates just agreed to a historic deal to normalize their long-strained relations — and it may not have happened without the input of President Donald Trump’s administration.
  10. It looks like Russia is doing their vaccine cowboy style. Maybe it'll yield interesting data?
  11. Okay, he shouldn't imply Washington becoming a slaveowner at 11 was just what he asked for his birthday. His dad died. He became man of the house, so he owned the slaves and not his mom. Much darker, Washington made part of his dentures from slave teeth. He did pay them, but below market rate and the slaves couldn't say no.
  12. I've always been curious about Venus. The tops of the clouds have a pleasant temperature and pressure. They also have sulfuric acid, but we have extremophiles that like sulfuric acid, and we have bacteria that live in cloud droplets. Couldn't there be life on the clouds of Venus? (except, now I think about it, don't those extremophiles need iron as well? There wouldn't be iron in the clouds)
