  1. To be fair, he’s too obese to be referred to as a stick of any sort.
  2. As long as trump is president, trump will do their job for them and keep everyone sick.
  3. Well, as the senate made clear, he's not subject to any laws. This part was cute, too: “I’m on a stage and it’s very far away,” Trump said. “And so I’m not at all concerned.”

    The Flu

    The whole online learning thing is utter bullshit. The kids can't stay on task. The fucking apps are endless, and annoying. "Please log into clever/seesaw/lexia/canvas/cycle/peabrain/whatever-the-fuck-amorphous-tech-covid-vulture company we hired for your kid this week, and make sure you use one of the 14 passwords we expect your 8-year-old to remember without your help!......haha, just kidding, fuck your career, because you're a volunteer teacher now! Tell your clients to fuck off, and go walk your child through this horrific App forest until they you're both enraged!"

    The Flu

    My kid's school will probably open for in-person learning in 3 weeks. I'm simultaneously stoked and frightened. non-parents have NO CLUE what it's like to work from home and also homeschool. No, this fall has not been any easier than the spring.
  6. Imagine being such a shit leader that you kill state residents against fervent objections by state governors.
  7. Apparently public shaming was virtually the only weapon used during the 1918 pandemic.
  8. Then apparently my behavior isn’t as bad as you’re claiming, Papa.
  9. GOP officially thinks Biden was president during the pandemic.
  10. I don't think people get how insane this is. The west slope of the cascades is supposed to be green, wet country. 1 million acres burned in 3 days (500k is the average acreage burned, statewide, in an entire season). We've expected Central Oregon to burn down for years. It's a constant fear, every summer (particularly now with Bend exploding in population, bringing the backfiring motorcycles and yahoos with lighters). Each month brings worse and worse shit in this ratfuck of a year, and I wouldn't be surprised if October brings Bend/Redmond to its knees with another insane fire.
  11. White supremacy coupled with toxic masculinity is a helluva cocktail.
  12. Yes, people actually believe this.

    Chiefs fans should be embarrassed.
  14. By some miracle, Central Oregon escaped even the smoke from the numerous fires in the western half of the state. ... As of today, that ended. We're in permanent night.
  15. Apparently the answer to this is make sure MORE college football teams are flying all over the country?
  16. You're adorable. Fuck off, please.
  17. This is why I hope Biden sticks with the demand for live fact-checkers. It would, at minimum, trip up Trump and make him devolve on live TV. He'd get furious, and act stupid, and the suburban white women in Pittsburgh and Milwaukee and Jacksonville would finally dislike him.
  18. 100% agreed. Only way to stop a bully is with strength. And Biden has shown a very aggressive posture in some of his recent speeches that give me hope. His remarks after the "suckers and losers" scandal really resonated, and if he keeps up that tack, I feel better about the election. And the debates.
  19. Pretend you're an undecided voter and see if they'll put you in the gallery?

    NBA is in a bubble, in one city. TOTALLY different situation, and the only way to do this and prevent infections. Did you not see the news of the Miami Marlins outbreak? Where is this sudden optimistic streak coming from?
  21. MINUTES after it was released? I didn't see that. Regardless, even without heart complications (which do still exist), increasing virus spread among students and their families is just plain fucking stupid. All in the name of lining pockets of universities and media companies? It creates a great situation for getting the virus under control. However, community spread is still rampant, so instant testing doesn't help much until we're able to get community spread under control. I don't understand this. College teams - along with coaches, training staff, medical staff, supp
