Posted in: No. of murders rose 30% in U.S. in 2020: FBI See in context

It's actually violent crime, especially murder, that is increasing. Other crime is either constant or decreasing.

And it's increasing in both urban and rural areas.

Work that into your narratives.

Bass: If the vaccine is so good then why do we need to continue it with more shots?

Because it drastically reduces your odds of getting the virus, drastically reduces your odds of needing to be hospitalized, and drastically reduces the odds that it will kill you.

If those things do not interest you, then I suppose you can say it doesn't do a whole lot.

Yep, msat likely a distraction, especially with the news coming out about the memo from the Trump campaign trying to invalidate democracy in America via Pence.

Or maybe he will just use it for fundraising. Someone has to pay the rent the Trump PAC pays to Trump Tower.

The increasingly lethal turn has filled hospitals, complicated the start of the school year, delayed the return to offices and demoralized health care workers.

But if I don't get vaccinated, my choice doesn't affect anyone else, right?

Posted in: Milley defends calls to Chinese as effort to avoid conflict See in context

Milley did nothing wrong at all. It's his job to interact with his counterparts. Did Trump order him to not do his job and Milley refused? Nope.

I'm guessing Milley had quite a few calls like that, especially from our allies. Someone had to reassure them that Trump wouldn't be allowed to cancel an election despite his best efforts.

And who knows what intelligence the world had. Did they know Trump was trying to order Pence to not certify the election so he could cancel out democracy? Did they know he was pressuring his lackeys at the (independent) DOJ to open up investigations without evidence? Did they know he was making calls to states and asking them to "find votes"?

We'll never know. But Trump's public actions alone would probably prompt some countries to reach out and ask some difficult questions. Let's not forget that Trump fans would have no problem with Trump cancelling the will of the people to stay in power so he had the support if he could have pulled it off.

I don't think enough people realize how American democracy in that moment really was based on a handful of individuals who refused to help Trump steal an election.

And the problem is Milley? For doing his job?

OK.

blacklabel: Milley thought it would score him some cool "woke points" if he leaked to Woodward what he did.

That would required us to believe that you can read his mind, or, you're just making it up because you like the way it sounds.

I'll let people here make their own choice. I've made mine.

Posted in: Biden announces Indo-Pacific alliance with UK, Australia See in context

U.S. President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that the United States is forming a new Indo-Pacific security alliance with Britain and Australia that will allow for greater sharing of defense capabilities - including helping equip Australia with nuclear-powered submarines. It's a move that could deepen a growing chasm in U.S.-China relations.

(Trump fans check their script)

BIDEN IS WEAK ON CHINA!

Beijing has taken exception to Biden administration officials repeatedly calling out China over human rights abuses in Xianjing province, the crackdown on democracy activists in Hong Kong, and cybersecurity breaches originating from China, as well as Beijing's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and what the White House has labeled as "coercive and unfair" trade practices.

(Trump fans check their script)

BIDEN IS WEAK ON CHINA!

Biden has sought to rally allies to speak with a more unified voice on China and has tried to send the message that he would take a radically different approach to China than former President Donald Trump, who placed trade and economic issues above all else in the U.S.-China relationship.

(Trump fans check their script)

BIDEN IS WEAK ON CHINA!

Military leaders often contact each other before a strike. Iran notified the US of the strike on American forces under Trump. Israel often notifies Hamas of airstrikes before they happen. Happens all the time.

bass: as with Flynn

Flynn admitted in front of a judge that he lied to the FBI, which was what his case was about. That's not comparable in any way to the JCOS situation so please do not bring it up again.

Sounds like he was doing his job and reassuring his counterparts that the US would remain stable despite Trump's active attempts to overturn the election.

Posted in: Fate of California Gov Newsom hangs on recall vote See in context

Well don't forget that elections where Republicans win are safe and fair and secure, then next year when they lose they need to make things more secure. If they win the following year then elections are suddenly safe and secure again, then if they lose the year after that we suddenly need more laws.

So Republicans don't question all elections, just the ones they lose.

People think there is an investigation going on in the state of Arizona. It's not for the state, it's just for the counties where Trump lost. For the counties where Teump won, there is no investigation or questioning of the results.

In the same state for the same election.

Posted in: Fate of California Gov Newsom hangs on recall vote See in context

A decade ago Republicans outnumbered Democrats by 16% in Texas. That number is now less than 6%.

If the narrative that people are moving to Texas because they hate Democrats, then I suppose we are left to believe that it's native Texans turning blue and the reason why the GOP is still in power is because they are importing others from out of state.

Texas is turning from red to blue anyway. Just look at the margin of victory for Presidential elections over the past couple of decades.

When you can't pass any more voter restriction laws, where will everyone go? Tuckerstan?

Posted in: Fate of California Gov Newsom hangs on recall vote See in context

Texas is a good place for people who want taxes so low they sometimes don't have a working power grid.

The fact is that the #1 destination for people living Texas is California. Why? (insert things I don't like about conservatives here) and to prove it (insert story with a couple of anecdotal stories from a couple of people.)

And don't throw some BS statistics and data at me. I lived in both states for over 30 years and won't be fooled by those voodoo surveys, statistics, and economists. I know the real deal.

I take stories and books like these with a grain of salt since they are always 3rd party accounts.

Your choice to clog up the medical system where I can't get the care I need because your choice is filling all the available beds?

Yeah. I'm going to have to pass on your choice. My choice is to keep myself alive. Your choice that takes that away doesn't really work for me.

Keep walling off the anti-vaxxers. Force the consequences of their choices on them, not us.

Posted in: Justice Dept sues Texas over state's new abortion law See in context

Under the statute, someone could bring a lawsuit — even if they have no connection to the woman getting an abortion — and could be entitled to at least $10,000 in damages if they prevail in court.

Yep. If an Uber driver takes a woman to get an abortion (which he obviously wouldn't know), he can be sued and will lose $10,000 or more in court, or will have to pay his own court costs if he wins.

And I can bring the lawsuit against him even if I don't know him, the woman, and live out of state.

Posted in: Texas governor signs new GOP voting restrictions into law See in context

The plot to establish minority rule will only work up until people start to realize that they're living under minority rule. For now it's chalked up as security, but as we continue and see Democrats win more popular votes and lose more seats in government people will begin to wake up.

And they won't be happy. Good luck, GOP. It's only a matter of time.

Posted in: California moves to outlaw removing condom without permission during intercourse See in context

I agree with bass. I'm wondering how many women have gotten pregnant against their will by a guy slipping off a condom vs the number of men who because fathers because the women lied about birth control or having her tubes tied.

Seems the law only addresses half the problem. Why not fix all of it?

Yep. And Republicans banned it anyway. Despite the small numbers.

They weren't satisfied unless they could put full extremism on display, regardless of how infrequently it would be applied.

Gotta hunt all those women down and make them pay. Every last one of them.

No exceptions.
