Wouldn't be surprised if ol' Hunter OD'd in the near future.

Intriguing. If it had ended a minute earlier I'd have been hooked. But everything was wrapped into SUCH a tidy bow at the end I found my "too good to be true" meter maxxed out.

... man I hate politics.

Yeah there's rarely any concrete proof of ANYTHING. We know virtually everyone is corrupt but you can't even trust the exposure of corruption because it could be a well orchestrated lie.

Another covid test for me. Should have results by the time I'm done typing this.

I have to have a certified oceanic lifeguard while I work watching me. He came back 9 days ago from visiting his daughter, he tested negative. 8 days ago he comes in a shack and sits next to me and talks for 5 minutes, no masks. We were talking about the task I was about to do, then I asked how he was doing. He replies "Not good, my ex wife just called last night and told me my daughter tested positive for covid"... I was like dude, you need to tell someone. You shouldn't be here. I called a manager to get him off the jobsite and they did. On that day (Saturday) he hadn't been with his daughter since Monday, so 6 days. (He tested negative 5 days after being with her). Today, 8 days after I got him off site and 14 days after being with his daughter, he tested positive. He's asymptomatic and I hope he stays that way. He's at least 350 lbs.

We know virtually everyone is corrupt

How do we really know this though? Isn't this more of an assumption thing?

I think it's reasonable to conclude that there is corruption (I suppose you'd need to define what this means in this context as well) in American politics, but I'm not sure what one would use to conclude it's as widespread to the extent that "virtually everyone" is deserving of the "corrupt" label. Kinda like labeling everything racist, right?

It's a team sport punk. If you want to break it down, sure there's varying degrees of corruption, collusion, and shady shit "everywhere" on both teams.

Our echo chamber here is a result of big tech, SM, and MSM uniting to hide the dirt for one team. We don't like it. You shouldn't either.

No one has really flat out denied this shit lol. They're just openly pulling the wool over their readers' eyes and telling them what to think.

Punk, wow did I exaggerate slightly? Horrible.

Haunted, 350lb oceanic lifeguard? Even worse. Is he 7ft tall and jacked?

I read that whole article when it came out. Some crafty language in there to keep smarter liberals on the bandwagon. When I read that one sentence though......  :frustration:

I tested negative. No he's shorter than me and realistically cannot save me, he's just a prop that tries to give me covid.

 :lolsign:

They've already predicted it... no matter what the outcome is, rioting will occur when people don't agree with the outcome for whatever reason.

EH. NOT SO MUCH.

My bold prediction. Fuck money. Bet me BODY PARTS:

If Trump wins, WIDESPREAD riots in several cities again, people in all black, with tool kits, very organized, all of it traceable on Twitter and Facebook.

If Biden wins... all quiet on the western front.

And yeah... Riots, mayhem, emo kids and wanna be gangsters posting snapchats/tiktok of their fist in the air while people are steeling nikes in the background(if trump wins).

We're about to find out if enough people are over this shit or not on Nov 3rd I guess. I certainly hope so.
