    I spoke with my doctor today, and I was very surprised when he called me back after I left a message.

    Last October, I was sick as shit for about five days. My lungs were corrupted, trouble breathing, dry cough, high fever for three days, etc. I keep thinking it was this virus. But what the hell am I, a virologist? What do I really know? It could have been any virus but not covid.

    He didn't rule it out , but he also did not affirm my musings. What was interesting was that he called me back, because he clearly remembers how sick I was, & how similar things looked to this virus we are facing now.

    He did admit to me that he's got about a dozen patients with the same thing at the same time as I did but because they weren't testing for covid then, they have no way of knowing now if they had it.

    I only say this, Darth, because you're a shitload healthier than I am, and younger, and if my fat ass shook it off and it was the same thing, you'll beat the shit out of this and be back on top in no time.

    Anyway, whatever it is, defeat it, do well, feel better, and may we all feel that way in a couple of weeks when things get back to something resembling normal.

    Sincerely,

    Pollyanna

    I have no doubt Darth will be good.
    The man knows how to cure and smoke a rack of beef. I'm sure his immune system is strong as John Wayne.

    Schumer and Pelosi holding up the stimulus (homo) bill over stupid shit.

    Surprise.

    Tried to sneak in abortion funding in round 1, supposedly.

    Now it's union power, solar, and fuel emissions standards.

    Fucking satanic morons are incapable of EVER leaving politics at the door.

    At every step democrats (in Washington) have used this as an opportunity to advance their agenda and hurt the president rather than making a good faith effort to help the American people.

    That does not mean I think the bill will help; it certainly will not be a savior and it's not perfect.

    My point is, this is about power. Not a disagreement corporate bailouts or anything else.

    They are planning to put together something on their own with components they know the other side cannot accept (some things that have nothing to do with the virus), so the Repubes or president can be the ones to blame.

    Always games. Fuck republicans too. But the dems are just next level. 24/7.

    Pieces of fucking shit.

    Not a huge Tim Pool guy, but he basically gives the cliff notes from articles written.

    Pertaining to the stimulus package (again, homo)

    What I read was it was 47 -47 on the package, obviously not along party lines. Biggest complaint is that it helps corporations and not enough to us and the small businesses. Not untypical of a complaint of this administration. HOPEFULLY they'll get there!!! I'm not hurting but so many are and it's just horrible.

    FWIW, there are quarantined Republicans that cannot vote. Not sure about Democrats.
    I wish I could believe this was about bailouts for large corporations.
    It's not.
    Even if it were, they should let the pubes pass their package; if it doesn't have a positive effect, the Repubes would have to own it.

    If it's liked by Reps then it's corporation friendly. Not a stretch. :D

    If the package ends up being complete trash (it may already be. Fair enough), is there a point we should be okay with no package at all?

    You need both.
    Need to keep the corporations healthy so they don't shed workers.
    But if you just give it all to the corporations, a bunch of people will be fucked.

    Need to keep money flowing to people that can't work.
    But if you give it all to workers, then companies will go out of business and those same workers will lose their jobs. Everyone will be fucked.

    First the people.
    The jobs can be protected later.
    First the food.
    The asshole can be wiped later.
    Priorities.

    James Clyburn (D-SC) to reporters:
    "(The coronavirus bill) is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision"

    I mean, what else do we need? It's about them.

    What we will have is a new world order.
    Capitalism is going caput.
    Off with it's cephalic membrane.
    Socialism is coming hard.
    We need to head it off at the pass.
    Before we end up with a rock under our cap.

    Commander Communism is here to help.
    really Captain Americana in disguise.
    But shhhh don't tell the younglings.
    As they are trained to hate their dark father in favor of their red headed step mother.

    Dems are reaching no doubt about it but I'm hoping they will come to their senses and pass the bill. Having said that you damn well Mitch is trying to use the situation sneak shit past people. Can't trust that sorry excuse for a human being.

    From November 2019: While Mitch McConnell claims the House is only focused on impeachment, there are scores of critical bills sitting on his desk sent to him by the House Democratic Majority. Among them are:• H.R. 1 – For The People Act – Sent to the Senate 239 days ago.• H.R. 8 – Bipartisan Background Checks Act – Sent to the Senate 248 days ago.• H.R. 7 – Paycheck Fairness Act – Sent to the Senate 220 days ago.• H.R. 1585 – VAWA Reauthorization Act – Sent to the Senate 212 days ago.• H.R. 9 – Climate Action Now Act – Sent to the Senate 184 days ago.• H.R. 5 – Equality Act – Sent to the Senate 169 days ago.• H.R. 6 – Dream and Promise Act – Sent to the Senate 151 days ago.• H.R. 582 – Raise the Wage Act – Sent to the Senate 107 days ago.

    He's been quoted as saying he will make the congress a legislative graveyard so when you cite articles about what the dems are obviously doing wrong don't think for one damn minute he has our best interest at heart.

    I dont care.
    Why do you care about old shit right now?
    Tell me what he is doing wrong right now instead.
    What horrible things is he putting in the bill?
    What is he trying to sneak by?
    Or are you just spreading misinformation?
    These are not attacks on you btw, they are rhetorical questions.
    I expect the best from people like you.
    Because a truth out of place and out of time is just a pretext for any and all type of lie.

    Cocaine Mitch is a POS and the Dems have the right to push an agenda, I suppose.
    I think the question is if NOW is the time for them to push that agenda? To battle with Republicans over issues that do not pertain economic relief?
    I say no.
    I say you pass something quickly to address this temporary situation and labor over the other issues at the appropriate time.
    The urgency of the situation should encourage collaboration, not political games.

    I don't know if it was an op-ed, but I saw an excerpt from The New York times praising Joe Biden's leadership during the Coronavirus and brutally criticizing Trump.

    Where do they come up with this stuff?

    Say whatever you want about Trump. Disagree with every policy he's tried to enact. Hate on his personality. Whatever. But the one thing that is indisputable... The corrupt media is the enemy of the people.

    We shared season tickets at Dodger Stadium from 2006 through 2017. Loge 126 Row A Seats 1-4 for the first several years. In 2016, we got switched to Row B a few sections over. We sat behind a guy who read newspapers the entire game. New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles times...I can't believe there are human beings out there that are willing to actually purchase those newspapers and read them. There's no information, and no pleasure. I don't get it.
