Right!The news is lying to us.They are pretending this is far more serious than it really is, to stoke fear and obedience.It's almost insignificant. If no one told you there was an epidemic, you wouldn't even notice.
As I've posted before, I had COVID. It was the moderate flu for me. I don't know anyone personally who has died from it. However, the bigger issue with COVID is long-term symptoms and/or permanent injury in some way...not death. Trust me, this virus is treacherous that way so I wouldn't rely on only "death" as a barometer. I used to think like many of you until I got it, and you all know I'm anti-government, Pro Trump, pro freedom, etc.Is the government politicizing it? Of course. Is it being used to hurt our country economically? Yes. Is the virus a nothing burger? No.
mell saysThey do. It's in their DNA. Looking good, talking (often lying) and selective fucking guaranteed.I've never heard of selective fucking. (I'm single)

Onvacation saysIf we don't come up with an honest election system.Trump incited you to believe that lie :-).

NuttBoxer saysWhat, a guy thinking he can house cows in his backyard an exaggeration!?No, the idea that food tastes significantly different when you buy it from a store versus buying it directly from a farm is a tremendous exaggeration.Exceptions are fruits - they are often picked green so they aren't spoiled by the time the market receives them.Carrots, potatoes, corn (in most cases), peas (in most cases), cucumbers, tomatoes - there's little if any difference. Don't know much about steak, but I doubt it. I've had venison, that's Bambi. The carcass is left on a hook for a week (at least) to let the meat tenderize in a shed - as the cells break down the meat becomes less tough, because a deer can absolutely beat the living absolute shit out of any human being. Meat has to be aged. So the idea of fresh meat, is a new one.The current fad of "organic food" drives me nu...

CDC could have eliminated 50 percent of the positives by simply reducing the PCR cycles from 40 to 20. It's not an accurate test. This is propaganda not science.
Patrick saysNot just city, statewide:Fuck that. You just made a vacation decision for me. Carolina's it is for the summer trip (maybe). I've been, but wife and kids haven't. CA is fucked up and I will give them $0. I applaud you for your efforts, but do you ever feel like the ship has taken on too much water and there's only a few life boats left? I know you rent so you have flexibility and don't worry about property value. Is it just work at this point or family? Covid tests are a pain, but I'll do them for travel INSIDE. I'm not going to wear a mask outdoors though. Ever. Or be shamed for it without fists being thrown. So yeah, likely no Tahoe for this family. Idaho might be a 2nd option. Coeur d'alene is a cool area. Otherwise coastal Carolinas. Either way I know both those areas will give little shit about masks if at all.

WineHorror1 saysIt blows my mind how home prices are rising during these "unprecedented" times.How much is it Indian and Chinese (despite the capital control bans, there's ways around them) hot money tho?

Does anyone think Prop 19 makes any difference for inherited investment properties which are not in the trust may get tax rate adjusted to market value.
If you're like our crypto pumpers here, follow the money. High wealth people are getting out of CA. They can easily handle the high cost of living there and likely have amazing properties. Why are they leaving? This is one situation where I'd maybe start following the money.
mell saysbut IL is in no way better, it may actually beat CA in terms of corruptionDefinitely not claiming IL is better. $$$$$ speaks loudly though. I'd hit the 13% progressive income tax in CA. It's a flat 4.75% here in IL after deductions. My monthly nut is $1,200/mo PITI. Same house in CA and everything else the same I'd easily be approaching $4k/mo. Sure there's potential appreciation, but Uhaul rates are showing otherwise on a level I haven't seen. People are leaving in droves at this point. Work aside, I can travel to CA one week a month with the income tax savings alone for a year in my situation. So 2-3 months of visiting? Factor in the cost of living and I've got even more money. I've researched the hell out of this as we looked into moving out there very seriously. Income in CA for white collar jobs is no different than any other part of the country. It simply isn't. ...

Patrick saysI'll always love Gina for mocking the stupid demand that she publish pronouns for herserlf:I did that at work for my Slack name: It/Cousin ItHR did not come down on ey but my boss tried to get me to pull it. He said, 'that is for when people feel the need to seriously identify how they want to be addressed"Me: "Yeah, and? Are you saying this isn't me being serious? Because I am."Him: "But that is a mockery of the pronoun thing"Me: "yes. And I take it very seriously"I ended up pulling it tho. I already have been Cancel fired once last year...and it was because of what happened on Slack.

RC2006 saysHopefully this will influence who they hire in the future.That’s what it boils down to in the end when this type of BS is happeningBusiness owners are watching... and choosing who they hire next.
Hopefully this will influence who they hire in the future.
I paste it again“Our message really is that we don’t want to see our business owners or others begin to arm themselves,” the police chief told reporters.Wow, that just doesn’t sit well with me.
hey y'allwhat happened with the stock market correction? Seeing an all time high on my stock portfolio....where are the market timers here? Or did they mean next year?
Fed will be buying stock market direct lol instead of just bond buys... Stimulus check in the pot no way the market dumps,not that a vulture black swan isn't flying over it just hasn't found the spot to land yet but be on the look out when DX hits the 88+/- area things couldchange very quick.
Amazon has a huge problem. None of their merchandise can be guaranteed authentic. Their new warehouse structure, requires all vendors to ship them their products. Then Amazon ships it out. That means, the folks selling knock off iPhones, and the Guys selling fakes, all end up on the same shelves. You don't know which one they are going to pick for you. Plus Amazon is having the Ebay effect. Their fees, and costs of doing business on Amazon, has risen their prices until they are no longer a bargain, compared to buying direct from an online store.
Tenpoundbass saysTheir only crime, which wasn't always. Was being the only conservative News Channel on Network, Cable, or Satellite television. Neocons aren't conservatives. They are "former Marxists" - seriously. No kidding. They aren't and never have been conservatives. They are authoritarians. Their attempt in the 1960's and previously was to promote communism, and when that didn't work out they supposedly "switched" and became "conservatives".https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoconservatism#History Communism didn't work, so they moved to fascism.Fox promotes the establishment. They will lie, they will distort, they will omit information to give their listeners an incomplete level of information needed to make an informed decision. EVERY "news" source does this now...

Never drink Coke anymore, and let them know why.If enough people do this, they will change.
clambo saysI regret not having the balls and sufficient autism to use my margin to buy 5,000-10,000 shares of GME.Please don't. This stock will end up in single digits.

I know actual gay people who are given real life abuse over stupid controversies like this. That's why I'm not letting up on the topic, and pushing back on people trying to walk away as if they don't actually care about the controversy they started/participated but can't actually defend, as if it were a matter of no consequence
