  1. Just spitballin' here, but maybe a woman of minority descent would be helpful. Not AOC and her group because they would be too polarizing. For that matter, I think Kamala Harris would be harmful towards the effort. Maybe Stacey Abrams is the only VP candidate that makes sense.
  2. A Republic Congress under Obama's second term had no role in wealth disparity? Their attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act has no role in this? Do you know why life expectancy dropped at the end of Obama's presidency? Is he completely to blame for the opioid epidemic (which is why the life expectancy declined)? The opioid epidemic was the product of the late 90s Big Pharma movement to recognize pain as the fifth vital sign and attempts were made to tie provider reimbursement to patient satisfaction. Translation: doc gimme the pain pills or I will go somewhere else. That's how doctor shopping arose. Also, the economically indigent are hit a lot harder by the opioid epidemic, despite the disease not discriminating among victims. IIRC, in Clinton's second term Congress was ruled by the Republicans. So I specifically place the blame on lowered life expectancy and widening wealth disparity on Republicans and their supporters.
  3. I know this hurts you more because you're a Poke, but lack of ill intent (or more appropriately, ignorance) is no justification for Gundy's behavior. Sometimes it's just best to let the experts (medicine, public health) dictate things of this nature. You bring students back to campus, the risk of the disease spreading goes up dramatically. It's as simple as that. And the fact that these athletes are still not getting paid makes it even a worse look for Gundy. If you force them to practice and play, they should be getting hazard pay. And the argument that the kids are young and healthy is by far the dumbest justification for his points. Remember when strong healthy NFL players were getting Staph infections in their own team gyms? I member. And athletes, despite being in optimal physical health, still get viral respiratory illnesses like influenza. Don't believe me, just check any old team injury report. For a condition like COVID-19 which has higher infectivity than influenza, have to be all the more careful and judicious. Come on Gundy, has the entire nation gone crazy shutting down its universities? Hope the administration pulls Gundy aside and uses this as a learning opportunity. Gundy needs to be reminded that he is a role model and leader of the community, whether he likes it or not, and what he says matters. There are ignorant people all over the country that will hang on to every word a public figure says. Don't believe me? Just take a look at Pedo State - they still are at eating up the late Paterno's denial hook, line, and sinker.
  4. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper is claiming no recollection of memos and briefings. He's been having a rough week. First, the Secretary of Navy and now this. And IIRC (please correct me if I'm wrong), he's not completely unqualified to be in his position. But then again, this is the Trump administration. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/08/politics/us-intelligence-report-china-coronavirus/index.html
  5. I know it's not funny, but for a second I felt like I was watching this movie No katfid.
  6. Still missing the fucking point. It doesn't matter if it's for a penny. It's still unbecoming of the Office of the President and a clear violation of the Hatch Act (something he has violated innumerable times). Donald Trump has a known history of cheating people for less than $99. Furthermore, if it could be worth as little as $99, but then how high could it be? Anyone defending Donald Trump at this point is either brain dead or being purposefully obtuse.
  7. What hospital in their right mind would let him volunteer after he had a recent infection? Did Duke University just give him a medical diploma without him ever having attended class? Sure seems like it.
  8. Too much that you would vote for another four years of Trump?
  9. Not automatically, no. Would take time to demonstrate malicious intent or negligence, and even then that is a maybe. Medical licensure is handled by the individual state medical boards. That's a whole different can of worms.
  10. GRHorn is one of those people who thinks he/she/it understands how medicine and medical care works in this country. Probably could never pass basic science.
  11. You're right. I could have worded it better. I was expecting a statistically significant drop based on how poorly things have gone.
  12. https://www.cnn.com/videos/health/2020/04/07/coronavirus-deaths-disparity-black-communities-jones-sot-vpx.cnn Van Jones commenting on the point in your post.
  13. The percentage of the stake doesn't matter, you fucktard. It's the concept. I hope you haven't procreated and never do, because you are part of what will eventually end humanity.
