Re: Back to School Blues

More gossip from the Salem, OR super savvy tech workers. The school provided Chrome books that didn't work today, so the parents swapped out some old Windows notebooks to get their kids online. Who doesn't have some old notebooks in the closet? Do you think it could have been the video format? Chro...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

We should be pinning all hope of this succeeding on fusion reactors.

Re: Back to School Blues

One of my coworkers told me that some local schools' Zoom sessions recently got hacked by people going on racist diatribes and playing porn 8) I'm sure the kids could tune out the offensive stuff and focus on the free sex-ed class.

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

I'll be voting in person, like normal. I've voted in my current polling location before, and I can tell you for certain that it's the least infectious place I'll have gone to in the past several months, with the exception of my house ;D I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume that vulnerable populatio...

Clickbait like this is what you do to people you don't like. Not your PP frens.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I'd like to buy some clothing from a small company, but on their website it says they're unavailable due to disruption of their American supply chain. Things I buy from Amazon seem to go back to flowing. In answer to your question again, yes, some manufacturing companies are still heavily affected....

Re: The vote by mail fiasco, as it unfolds

The issue with relying on courts as far as I can see is that they've seen that they can do the damage then face the lawsuit later. Look at PA under Gov Wolf. A judge has ruled that he did a shit ton of unconstitutional stuff. The lawsuit didn't prevent any of it. Same with the LA mayor shutting off ...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Everyone knows that all of these rules are imaginary, right? The president can nominate and the senate can decide to confirm or not. Anything else is pablum. +100. Why should anyone give a fuck what a Senator wanted to do that one time if it's all part of the Constitutional playbook? Follow the pro...

Re: Post-COVID-19 Economy: Less From Washington May Be More

He doesn't say the other part: if the federal government cuts taxes, it should cut a lot of spending, too. Personally, I think the helicopter money and souped-up unemployment were bad calls that originated from a flawed premise (that we needed to shutter our country for 6+ months). Good on Rand Paul...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

How bad is it? Should I sacrifice a dove or a feral cat?

Trick question; it will be a feral cat.
