Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

Yeah, that was incredible. I sat through a 2-hour City Council emergency meeting yesterday. Clerks and security were wearing gloves, no hand shaking, stay a foot back and don't touch the microphone, keep one empty seat between each other, etc. The White House deal was an example of what NOT to do.

Re: Stock Market

This all reminds me of an old joke of mine:
Q: How do you turn a Democrat into a Republican?
A: Give them some money.

Now we'll see if the inverse is true.

Re: New Diseases

Kalitta Air N705CK, a 747 freighter, just flew into OAK from OSC (Oskata MI) and is taxiing to the executive terminal. This is not a regularly scheduled flight. This same plane flew a rescue flight from Wuhan, China to Ontario, CA on Jan 28.

Re: How We Think about Death. A Life Well lived.

This is my theory, based upon recent legal strategy. Not sure if it will help.

After we are born, we are given two options: sudden death and prolonged death.

The latter may be preferable, if it is reasonably long and relatively painless.

Re: Flash Poll Mar 5 2020 - Bernard Sanders or Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.?

Politics has morphed into entertainment and some politicians have successfully leveraged that.
Other politicians are somewhat boring.
I generally prefer the second group.

Re: California Primary 2020: Super Tuesday March 3rd

Bloomberg's been carpet-bombing ads nonstop. They all have the same generic Subaru soundtrack. He's been trying to drum up mayoral support. Came to town to eat an overpriced bagel down my block.

The reports I've been reading suggest Bernie is in the lead. His campaign is highly mobilized and has offices in more cities than other candidates, including one a couple blocks from me in a stripped-down vacant storefront.

Re: Cancel Culture aka The Purity Spiral

That's some weird stuff. I disagree with the conclusion. The simplest solution is to say the hell away from crap like Instagram and Facebook and any technology that monetizes conflict. Social media is neither, by design and business plan. Take a walk, read a book, pet a dog, call a friend.

Re: New Diseases

I think I had the coronavirus once. One night we were out and had a bunch of coronas. The next morning I was real sick. If I had a couple of cases, I'd probably toss them down the sink. I got a couple cases of tecates. Figured it would be a good idea to stock up. If there's a tecatevirus, I'm fucked.

Re: Issues 2020: YIMBY

The acceptance of refugees is one issue, YIMBY is another. YIMBYism is location-dependent. In the inner cities, they are often the shills for corporate developers, subsidized by corporate dollars. Their goal is often to displace low-income residents and replace them with luxury apartments. YIMBYs Ex...

Upthread, Dolly quoted "Until the media turns their back on politics as entertainment..." That's the crux of the issue, but it's impossible.
