I wonder if UA will try to force AS to move back to LaGuardia so that they can take back their old gates at JFK. First off, how would they "force" them to do anything? They don't control AS. Second, their old gates at JFK are in T7, which is slated to be demolished down the line, and AS w...Jump to post
I agree with all of the above in regard to Joe Biden. I wasn't aware he was under your care! Oh, he's not, and never was?

Let's go with flu x4. If 40% of Americans get their flu shot every year, then let's assume 80% will do this. For two shots per person, then that's 4x the jabs we'd see in a typical flu season. This is a lot, but it's not impossible. Assuming the preliminary info of about 20-30M doses available imme...Jump to post

The Republicans have shifted and are now the party of the working man.

Republicans in general have been silent over this man's actions far too long. And they remain silent. Or even endorse his actions.

Consider for a moment that if Trump and Biden merely had a 50/50 split in the following six counties: Los Angeles King (Seattle) Cook (Chicago) Kings (Brooklyn) Queens New York (Manhattan) Trump would have won the popular vote in 2020.

Disappointed, to be sure, but if it’s the will of the people, so be it. This is just Act I, however. Act II begins around the time Trump concedes and Biden makes a victory speech.

It is no way POTUS’ SARS2-CoV19 tests aren’t logged. Since they could not reply, it means he tested positive or didn’t test before the debate.

Everyone is looking at this from a competitive perspective. It’s not; this is about SURVIVAL.
