  1. So, I haven't had a haircut in 4 months now, and my hair is the longest it's been since I was a kid. What I've discovered is that the hair at the nape of my neck, since it's naturally curly, naturally grows into almost a perfect duck's-ass. I'm unironically rocking a hairstyle that went out of style about 60 years ago. Along that vein, I noticed today that I'm kind of rocking the masked look (don't get me wrong, I'm a C.H.U.D. unmasked). I'm wondering if I can still get away with the mask when this is all over. Went to three different sporting goods stores to try and buy some dumbbells to expand my workout at home now that my torn cartilage is finally starting to heal, and the pickings were fucking slim. I managed to put together a hodgepodge good enough to get me by for a while, but I'm going to have to figure out a better plan going forward.
  2. I'm not sure how Biden's plan to Uncle Joe Republicans into submission is any less pie-in-the-sky than court-packing or filibuster reform, but YMMV. At this point, anything anyone says about "returning to normal" is just an admission that they don't have a plan, because they haven't come to the realization that there is no "normal" left for us to return to.
  3. Well right now, Biden seems to think he'll be able to just Uncle Joe everyone into going along. I'm not convinced that he doesn't actually believe that.
  4. No, that's bullshit. If Biden wins, and Democrats take the Senate, Republicans will launch an obstruction campaign that will make their GFC obstructionism look tame, and they'll be doing it during the likely 2nd wave of a pandemic which will probably be worse than the one we just experienced. They'll be doing with double digit unemployment and a possible depression. I think it's not beyond the pale to ask what Dems plan to do to counter that. Pack the courts? Abolish the filibuster? We need to know.
  5. I haven't had much to say about the Biden gaffe, but this talk about Obama and 2008 made me realize that I haven't heard Dems talk much about what their vision is for the near term and how they'll rebuild the country after kicking out Trump. I'm worried that Biden will make the same mistakes Obama did in the aftermath of the GFC. I heard Biden on a talk show recently saying that he would appoint Republicans to his Cabinet. I can't think of a single Republican that I would want in his Cabinet. Democrats, if they win the Presidency and the Senate, need to be prepared to consolidate power. I'm not convinced that there's a plan to do so.
  6. Posting this here instead of the RIP thread: RIP Eddie Sutton.
  7. I'm starting to get sick of all the anti-telecommuting articles telling the plebes to not get too comfy working at home.
  8. Trump golfs while almost 100,000 Americans have died. Brings to mind Nero fiddling while Rome burned. That'll be his legacy 2,000 years from now, if humans somehow manage to make it that long.
  9. So, is it too cynical of me to think that some Republicans are pushing openings because it will mostly affect black and Latinx Americans?
  10. I don't fucking understand why the WH Press Corps even bothers asking questions of McEnany. She never says anything except for straight up right wing propaganda. It's not even newsworthy, unlike when Trump told people to drink bleach.
  11. I've really been warming up lately to Lujan-Grisham as the VP pick.
  12. Like a California Raisin? Did Jesus hear it through the grapevine?
  13. Trust me, we got all the freedumb we can handle.
  14. Montgomery, AL mayor reporting that all ICU beds in the city are full.
  15. Nah, they're still kicking around afaik. Funny thing is I know people who've been to his zoo. ETA: If I'm being honest, meth is probably our thing too. So back off!
  16. Hey, tigers are OUR thing! The Tiger King lives here after all!
  17. Florida has reported it's 4th highest number of positive COVID-19 cases today, and that's even with them cooking the books.
  18. I've noticed that too! I just always thought he was permanently constipated.
