He keeps blabbing on like the fucking pitch-man that he always is, and this is NOT the fucking time to be pitching people how great things are GOING to be.

Are you sure you're talking about the right Sam Harris? Sounds a little like Steven Pinker, but could be someone else too.

This is Sam Harris:

No, I'm talking about Donald the Dumbass J for Jerkoff Trump. I wish Melania would cut his fucking balls off in his sleep.

My old ladys dogs eat chicken and rice. Ugh, you don't even know what a pain in the ass it's been to feed these little shits every day for the past several years. But a month or so ago, the cashier or bagger at the Publix accidentally put someone elses cans of dog food into our bags. I kept them. And when the stores ran out of chicken and had NO rice, I had to start feeding them the cans of pedigree or whatever it is, and luckily they ate it, and luckily they didn't vomit it out all over my house an hour later like they usually do with everything else that isn't chicken and rice. ::)

But yeah, we go through chicken like crazy. If the stores can't keep chicken in stock, I might have to look into something like that.

It would be good to see the wealth numbers of the Clinton's & Obama's before & after their Presidential terms.

It would be good to see Trump's wealth numbers before his Presidential term.

You might just be surprised by how un-rich he actually is. For all the buildings with the Trump name on them, he actually owns very few of them. Most of the time, he's licensed his name for a one time fee to these people building things. Convincing everyone he's so ridiculously rich has largely been an act since the 90's. He's rich in the sense that he certainly has more money than all of us blabbing on this messageboard combined, but it serves his branding purposes for everyone to think he's worth more than he actually is, because that's most of what he is at this point, a brand name. He was instrumental in revitalizing Manhattan and the Central Park adjacent areas in the early 80's, but beyond that, he's been largely "unremarkable" in the real estate business. His casinos in Atlantic City were flops by way of overspending (possibly a mob cleanout job to settle a debt, who knows, and to be noted that's just personal conjecture not based on fact).

"If Your Doctor Spoke Like Trump" by Sam Harris (apparently)

Mm hmm. I see this asshole on TV every fucking day, and it's to the point now where I'm LITERALLY screaming like a fucking crazy person when I hear his god damn voice. SHUUUUUUT THE FUUUUUUUUCK UUUUUUUUP! SHAADAp! SHADAP SHADAP SHADAP! SHAAAAADAAAAAP! He keeps blabbing on like the fucking pitch-man that he always is, and this is NOT the fucking time to be pitching people how great things are GOING to be. This is one thing he has NO fucking control over, and NO handle on it, and it's NOT going to get better like he keeps saying. This motherfucker, I wish he'd come down with the worlds worst case of laryngitis for fucks sake. One that would last for another month or two at least.

And WHY is she blocking the aid? The WHY's are fairly congruent.

Far be it from me to defend them, but... Why is it suddenly Christianity's fault that Donald Trump is a fucking dumbass? I think if you asked a few REAL Christians (not the social media ones who only do it for their image), they'd tell you that they don't want this thing getting worse either.

I guess people want to find someone to blame. And you can probably blame the Trump administration for not taking this shit serious enough. But you can DEFINITELY blame China for letting their people live in conditions of filth that acts as a petri dish for this kind of thing repeatedly. Personally, I'd like to see all the social media activists start focusing their attention on China and perhaps encourage people to join them in boycotting Chinese goods until China starts addressing their pollution and sanitation problems more aggressively.

I dunno how bad it really is as far as the economy goes. But we're reportedly in a game of chicken at the moment, and at some moment in time called X, we're either gonna have to say fuck it and go back to things like before and just let a whole bunch of people die,... or we're gonna have to stay quarantined and drive the entire planet into an economic depression the likes of which has never been seen before in the history of civilization. That could arguably be even worse.

So to quote Star Trek - The Wrath of Khan: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few... or the one."

I'm assuming Haunted meant to post this here. ::) :D

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/whats-in-democrats-coronavirus-bill-arts-funding-union-help-and-more

I mean read all of that. Ignore any right leaning tidbits, just focus on what they tacked on to this bill. Considering the state of our nation that is ridiculous and NOT wanting a compromise. It's very disappointing.

If anything, it proves that BOTH sides don't actually give a fuck about US. They can't see outside of their own little bubble they're living in. They're living a real life episode of game of thrones, and we're just the assholes watching it on TV as far as they're concerned.

I can't even stand to watch the news channels anymore. Most of them want to spend all their time shitting all over the President, and Fox just keeps showing Trump in press conferences making comments that make me want to kick him in the face. And when they don't have Trump on there, they have someone else saying something just as dumb that makes me want to kick them in the face even though I don't even know who the hell they are half the time.

Where the hell is Huckabee Sanders when you need her? If she was still around, she could be the one standing there answering all the questions competently and intelligently. Instead, you have these pricks in military dress who keep stressing that there's really only about a 2% fatality rate. SHUT THE FUCK UUUUUUUUUUUUUUP! They just don't get it. I wanna ask these assholes if it's okay if I play russian roulette with their children and guarantee them that there's only a 2% chance they'll have to watch me blow their childrens brains out in front of their very eyes. Something tells me they wouldn't find that to be an acceptable risk. Not to mention the fact that "2%" isn't the official number. :razzberry:

Interesting, if true, the remarks here about how the measure had bipartisan support until 'leadership' stepped in to throw a wrench in the works:

Yep. For once, some REAL shit was going to get done quickly. Then Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb Cunt march in and tell their crew to change their votes. God damn, I wish she'd just dry up and blow away already. :frustration:

I have a coworker that got a text from a project/contract manager stating "You're an APE, you need to get it together and do your job". She's black, went to HR about being called a racist slur, an "APE" (Assistant Project Engineer).

WOW. That's like being a black guy named Chuck Spears. How many thousands of his coworkers have been fired by now? :D

Other than 1 trip for groceries, I haven't left the house for jack shit since the 13th. I don't think I'll die if I get it, but I don't know that for sure. And even if I don't die, I could be someone elses cause to get it and THEY could die. And not enough people are thinking about it in those terms. Right now, the data suggests you probably won't die from it if you're under 60. But that's only "probably". You're essentially playing russian roulette, only the prize is you get to keep the life you ALREADY have, and if you lose, you fuckin' die. Not really a wise gamble. So yeah, for the sake of everyone's favorite grandma, stay the fuck home. All my grandmas and grandpas are dead, but I'm still courteous enough to not try to kill anyone elses.

If you try to look at info on the web, they call it 500 different things. I wish they would pick ONE thing and call it that consistently. Just saying "coronavirus" is quite inaccurate.

Interesting article there. As it states, in order for the two suspected viruses to combine, the host would've had to have been infected by BOTH SIMULTANEOUSLY. Nasty habits aside, that bit of information seems to suggest to me that the likelihood of it's origins being a "boneheaded accident" has dropped, and the statistical likelihood of it being an intentionally engineered combination has increased.

You can say, "Well what does a govt have to gain by releasing this on its own people in order to spread it to the ultimate target?" Maybe. But that doesn't rule out that some other bad actor could've put it into the wild, someone who doesn't operate entirely on logic and reason. Remember that Chinese cult that released saran or ricin (I forget which) into the subway?

Just thinking out loud really. I still think it's probably just a dumb accident caused by someones filthiness. Someone send Greta Thunbergs little angry emoting ass to China to get them to clean their nasty shit up and get on board with the climate change initiatives.
