The primary reason a lot of Americans are against Medicare For All or primary provider is due to a simple fear of the unknown. They know their private insurance sucks, but are afraid anything else would be worse. And if you try to talk sense to them, they clam up and/or defend their crappy private i...Jump to post
In May 2019, I leased a 2019 Ford Escape Titanium AWD. It's called the Kuga in some parts of the world. I've purchased five new Ford cars since 1988 and this is the first one I've leased. As a retiree, I simply have no desire or need to own a car outright anymore. I leased this Escape for $400 a mon...Jump to post
I live 20 miles from downtown Minneapolis and have done so for my whole life. I just spent 30 minutes reading every post and reply in this thread trying to see if anyone else picked up on something I did. There were four officers involved in the takedown of Floyd. What I saw was one officer who took...Jump to post
Injecting chips requires a 7 gauge needle. It's huge... About 2 mm in diameter. Vaccines require a 22 gauge needle. If the COVID-19 vaccine uses a tiny 22 gauge needle, you can be safe that there's no chip involved.Jump to post
Los Angeles Police Department still has an assignment code for foot patrol: FB. For example, a foot patrol beat officer on Venice Beach may have the radio call number of: 14 FB 3.Jump to post
Remember polio? Remember that two doctors came up with different vaccines that worked within a short period of time? Remember the names Dr. Sabin and Dr. Sauk?
I don't feel like typing a two page reply about their discoveries and how the world adopted them. You can research it just as good as me.
See the Carter/Baker Commission on Elections which stated “vote by mail” was an opening to fraud. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commission_on_Federal_Election_Reform I think the Republicans fear vote by mail because they cannot control the vote by closing voting places, moving them and all out supp...Jump to post
Are you ready for a vaccine? This is intriguing. Llama antibodies kill COVID-19.

I had COVID-19 in December/January. I banking on the antibodies giving me immunity. I go out two or three times a day to a small convenience store to bullshit and get fountain pop. I also visit my pharmacy once a day to bullshit with the staff.Jump to post
Went to a local grocery store for the first time in a couple of weeks. Some customers wearing masks. I was there five minutes and saw: A) A woman remove her mask to cough. B) A woman remove her mask to sneeze. C) A woman remove her mask to smell cantaloupe. As a former nurse, I just shook my head.Jump to post
Scored at Walmart in western Wisconsin.
Leonid & Friends. From Russia. They start their fourth US tour this summer.
I remember when a pound bought over $3. Now, a pound will buy you $1.30. Hmmm....Jump to post
I find it absolutely amazing that people who only watch Fox News think that Trump getting a 95% approval rating in the GOP means that the 2020 election is a shoe-in. Idiots with no concept of statistical knowledge.Jump to post
Microsoft is cool in that I know where to buy authentic software without being ripped off by Nigerian or Chinese sellers peddling goods with fake license numbers. Even buying Microsoft goods from Amazon is a crapshoot.Jump to post
His and his administration's dishonesty and dirty tricks offset a good economy. I'd rather have an administration that follows the rules over a good economy. The sanctity of the American Constitution and law must be maintained over all else.Jump to post
Three Stooges Sing the Alphabet.
I taught primary school in the UK in the 1980's. I was an American exchange teacher. Before going there, I spent a semester preparing to blend in as easy as possible to the British school system, which included curriculum studies, British history, educational law, and even learning language differen...Jump to post
I owned basic cars after I got my driving license: A 1974 Pinto with an auto gearbox and AM radio, and, a 1977 Pinto wagon with a 4-speed manual. I now have a Ford Escape Titanium with bells and whistles..... because I deserve it. I pay $410 a month lease on it.Jump to post
Especially since kids normally take up smoking as it's the 'cool' thing to do. Banning it makes it even cooler and desirable. Smoking is cool? I thought running your hand through a meat grinder was cool. I must have hung around with the wrong crowd. Smoking isn't cool. It makes you smell bad, chron...Jump to post
There are two things that I refuse to invest more than $15 in: Sunglasses and headphones. Regarding the former, as long as they're wrap-around style and polarized, good enough. If I throw my bookbag on top of them and break them, no big deal. Just get another pair at Walmart. In regard to the latter...Jump to post
Clinton was very popular..the Criminal president is NOT! He will not like how this unfolds. Trump, the GOP, and his adamant followers claim that all of the polls are fake and flawed and they don't believe them. They seem to think that at least 70% of the voters are in their back pockets. Polls show...Jump to post
I have never met anyone in my entire 60 years of life that gave a car as a Christmas gift. I'm a high school teacher in a well off area; I see it all the time. The teens aren't getting $70K cars, but less expensive cars as gifts is common. I was a high school student in a well off area too. I saw a...Jump to post
And another thing.... Did you notice that only Fox News can group a Lexus ad, a Viagra ad, and a reverse home mortgage ad into a single break?Jump to post
I have never met anyone in my entire 60 years of life that gave a car as a Christmas gift. If someone can afford to drop $70,000 on a car as a gift, they don't need Christmas as an excuse to do so. Seems a little too Cardashian.Jump to post
Just make insurance companies pay the Medicare rate for everything and pass the savings onto the policyholders. What? Too much too soon?Jump to post
Did I just hear Trump PUBLICLY ask China to investigate his political rival? Good God. The man has no clue what is and isn't legal in US government. He thinks he's running a business.... not the Executive Branch.Jump to post
I'm worried about the Trump's call for a civil war to be taken literally.Jump to post
There is a movement in rural Oregon about "we will not comply" which is pro-gun legislation. These are the usual right wingers who want all guns, all the time with few restrictions.

Entrenched Trump supporters make up about 35% of all voters. They swear that that figure is closer to 80%, which is not true. They are confident that Trump will skate into a second term. However, a recent poll showed that every Democratic candidate would beat Trump by at least 10% each. If Trump los...Jump to post
