Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

Honest question: Given that Fauci and Birx have both publicly stated that in-person voting can be done safely, why are so many blue-state politicians still pushing mail-in voting for this election?

If they don't have ulterior motives, then what is their main reason?

538 is roughly as reliable with regard to the upcoming election as the Babylon Bee.
Hey, I've actually found the Babylon Bee to be pretty reliable (sometimes even prescient) over the past couple of months.

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

With Grassley, Gardner, and Romney now all releasing statements declaring their support for bringing the nominee to a vote before the election, Republicans officially have 51 votes in-hand. It's happening. Now we need U. S. Marshals or some other reliable law enforcement agencies to protect the Sen...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

What else could be the reason for "excess deaths" this year? Many or even most of the excess deaths could be due to Covid-1984, or they could be largely due to the unintended consequences pugchief mentioned. We don't know for sure. It's all guesswork. But my point about Covid-1984 "cases" still sta...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Capture.JPG Pray tell, how many of those 200,000 deaths were FROM Covid-1984 rather than merely WITH Covid-1984? I was having a related discussion with my brother today. He sent me some tweets going into a deep-dive on how many Covid-19 "cases" have been asymptomatic, and I posed this series of que...

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

I doubt the CDC's statement will make any difference. They're a hot mess and they have just about no credibility left. True, but Fauci and Birx aren't even part of the CDC. They're part of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. They've discredited themselves, too -- along with most other public he...

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

That's why I think the best response to massive unconstitutional power grabs is widespread civil disobedience. The government has finite resources and can't enforce their unconstitutional diktats if everyone defies them in unison. The courts sort out the aftermath, but the immediate infringement of ...

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

Fauci and Birx both stated that in-person voting is safe, so I don’t think any state has a public health justification for reducing or eliminating in-person polling places.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The CDC has become a dumpster fire this week. First its director's statement two days ago in a senate hearing that masks are "more guaranteed to protect" against Cooties-19 than a vaccine, now this political flip-flop on the issue of testing. I can't wait to see what else pops out of the CDC's clow...
