    Huge Beirut explosion shatters windows across Lebanese capital

    I did see someone on Twitter making fun of the dirty bomb accusations. She said something like, “Stop freaking out about this being a dirty bomb. It was a fireworks warehouse explosion. I’ve seen others like this.” I thought that didn’t sound right. I truly thought it was a dirty bomb/suitcase...

    Covid-19

    Well, I’m glad they didn’t shut down a year earlier when I went there. Most amazing place I have ever visited, and I travel a decent amount. I hope to go back. The hardest part was the 25 hour flight each way. Definitely won’t do economy again. By the way, this whole conversation made us reach...

    Yes. Because some argue NZ’s approach doesn’t apply to the US since NZ is an island with a smaller population. Hawaii is an island with and even smaller population, yet rheyre experiencing a troubling spike way beyond what’s happening in NZ.

    Covid-19

    They have the fastest growing infection rate in the country. Besides, I’m saying it’s a better comparison to NZ, not that being an island doesn’t help. It’s a good comparison of the US’s response effectiveness vs NZ’s.

    FYI - 99% of US citizens survived WWI. I realize there are other aspects which do not compare to war. So, I agree comparing the virus to global war isn’t apples to apples. Still, survival rate isn’t the only problem with this virus, just like it wasn’t the only problem with WWI. I think the...

    We compared Hawaii and NZ pretty extensively for this express purpose.

    That isn’t my point. I’m saying their success isn’t because they’re an island. Hawaii proves that. Their success is because they’ve taken serious action due to leadership and sacrifice.

    Covid-19

    Simply pointing out it isn’t easy to control simply because you’re an island. As for other points, New Zealand actually has 3x the percentage of Pacific Islanders and Hawaii does. Also, having been to New Zealand, I know a good swath of the southern island is not inhabitable due to mountainous...

    I have no idea. I’m just responding to the ruling which was specific to requiring witnesses/notaries. That restriction would have done nothing to address the concerns you’re introducing.

    https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-07-19/california-pacific-islander-native-hawaiian-communities-hit-hard-by-coronavirus In L.A. County, Pacific Islanders suffer the highest infection rate of any racial or ethnic group, more than 2,500 per 100,000 residents. That’s six times higher...

    Covid-19

    It has nothing to do with receiving ballots. It just removes a requirement to have two witness signatures or a notary for ballot submission. The idea is to limit unnecessary exposure during the pandemic. Also, the court ruled based on respecting states’ rights, which is a conservative value...

    Not this again

    I know, right? That left-wing nut job Michael Cohen is at it again.

    That’s fair. And I agree Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History is amazing. There are still many reasons to not release the kraken on our population. Overwhelming our healthcare system is just one.

    Yep. We need more of this. Rx is spending too much time twiddling his thumbs.

    Covid-19

    This is a horrible event, but I was just talking with my wife recently about the innovation that has/will come out of this. This is going to be a watershed moment for reinventing business, education, and other aspects of our economy and society. I think there are many dimensions of our lives...

    Hard to argue with them based on the article. I’d be interested in seeing/reading the whole interview to ensure context though. AT first blush, this seems like a tactic to corner Democrats. He knows his base is less likely to use mail-in. And if the Democrats start telling people to show up...
