In the 2000 election, there was a difference of only a little over 500 votes in Florida. We are not talking about a comparable situation at this time.
In other news, trump conceded today. Kind of.
Thanks for the info. The Pence option is still possible, even if he can’t pardon himself. Good to see you too!
He may pardon himself or resign and have Pence pardon him. If so, he could still be in trouble with state of NY.
I understand. I think we have to keep repeating that common knowledge for certain people, unfortunately. The Democrats will have to roll up their sleeves! On a personal note, my mother, who is almost 99, had a resident in her facility who tested positive a few days ago. My mom is in hospice so wouldn’t be hospitalized if it turns out she has the virus. All the staff and residents were immediately tested and awaiting results. Those in assisted living and nursing homes are very vulnerable, as are others.
Also, I was referring to hearing many say that it’s ok if there are trump rallies since trump supporters will die. It is not true that only trump supporters will die, as they will and have spread it. This must be repeated so that others hear it even though many of us do know it already. I also don’t really want others to die because I disagree with them, though I struggle with relating to trump supporters. If you google Stanford study on trump rallies, they have estimated the amount of spread these rallies have caused.
I like seeing him again but wish he was back on msnbc instead of youtube.
It’s a big challenge ahead, that’s for sure. If a vaccine is found to be effective in the coming months, things will slowly get better. Also, there’s other policy changes which should happen, such as more stimulus packages and more appropriate ppe to be given to those who need it by using the defense production act which was used by FDR in WW2, for example. Policy changes will make a difference regardless of whether or not we get every MAGA nut on board or not.
The problem with the Covid era Trump rallies is that those dumb enough to go to them will then turn around and spread it throughout the community. It is like 2nd hand smoke. It will affect others, not just the ones dumb enough to engage in the dumb behavior of not following the guidelines of social distance, mask wearing and hand washing. I am no fan of Chris Christie, but even he said don’t be an idiot like me. Wear a mask. This was after he had been following the guidelines for several months, then went to the WH event and soon after got the virus. He then spent a week in the ICU. He was lucky to survive, as a 58 year old man who is obese.
And YMCA is a gay anthem.
