    Ah, so #metoo was a fad, according to that. Interesting. Wonder if this means BLM is, too. They cropped up around the same time.

    All the people saying how her claims aren't credible are missing the point that Tara's claims are credible based on the standards they established for Kavanaugh. So yeah, hypocrisy at it's finest.

    Also enjoy seeing the return of that 2016 talking point of how presumptive nominee doesn't need those people as supporters come November. We'll see, maybe Trump continues to bungle things on his end and Biden's complete absence doesn't harm him at all.

    "Believe the science" is bullshit as well. They all just repeat it like it's a mantra but never do what the science actually recommends.

    Politician A goes, "I believe the science." Libs cheer but it doesn't matter whether or not they act on the science what's important is that they believe it.

    Generalizations are bad mmkay?

    I mean, if you get too "everyone else is a fraud but me" you'll end up cornering yourself.
    You will have to accept that people have the free will to be ignorant, or to not accept things because that is their prerogative, and then move on from there..
    There are a lot of people who can support a movement, but that doesn't mean they are all in agreement.

    I have new respect for the bible though. It pretty much accurately portrays how people will act in end of times, with fake prophets and moral guardians inciting the masses, and an Anti-Christ leading the most powerful country in the world, doing stupid stuff but still is popular with those that matters.

    If USA under El Presidente can launch an open assassination attempt, rob states of essential PPEs and order people to march to death while denying all of their faults despite being obvious, and people buying their shit, anything can happen next.

    What do you mean "thought?" They still do. They're convinced he'll somehow get a third term eventually.

    New theory is Obama will be controlling Bidan behind the scenes.

    As for Covid, even though nobody in power is saying it outloud, it seems that the US has decided that the current rate of new infections/daily deaths is OK, which means that we should expect on the vicinity of 50k-100k deaths/month until the pandemic peters out.

    Eh, I guess that's one way to deal with it. Keep the propagation number at 1 and ride the loooong wave until group immunity/seasonal factors make it go away.

    It's super cavalier though, considering how many deaths it implies, and how little is yet known about the longterm effects of the disease, immunization, etc
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    They were complaining that was what the conservatives were doing til they corrected/backtracked shortly after.

    allegedly Third Russian medic falls out of a window after complaining about covid working conditions

    Yeah, that seems to be the decision they've reached in our "leadership." Even if they aren't admitting it. I'm just wondering how long they think that's going to go on, what that's going to do to our medical, labor, everything, that somehow makes it an acceptable choice from a fiscal perspective. Because it sure as hell isn't from a moral or ethical one, or even from their usual anti-immigrant positions once the situation is finally under control.

    This just utterly feels like madness to me. I can't understand it if it's legit because it's so self-destructive I can't think of a good reason to do it.

    Whoever hasnt been hypocritical in the service of their own ideology cast the first stone but yknow

    What bothers me is the "credible accusations" part of the question because you can just do what toby is doing here and simply deny credibility. But this suggests a cultural shift towards molestation being a slight transgression again just purely because of partisan thought. And thats kind of insane.

    See, that's the thing, though. A classist hierarchy is a pyramid. If you undermine the foundation, the whole thing falls. A king without a country and a people to rule is just another peasant.

    Edit: Wait, I see it now. It's that the actual US population has become irrelevant. Globalization and neoliberalism at this point have offshored so much of the productivity the elites depend on to sustain themselves that the actual US citizens no longer make sufficient impact on their calculations. That's the only way it makes sense.

    Bread, circuses, and tribal mentality. Come November at least 60 million people will vote for el presidente and you know he is going to choose the “influence the vote” option

    As for why: you simply do not have the infrastructure and legislative power to deal with this adequately. I doubt they could do a whole lot if they cared.

    Hell a lot of European measures turned out to be unconstitutional looking back on them we just don't really care. I dont think thats possible in American political culture.

    As awful as British political culture is the fact that the opposition is just doing standing ovations for Boris now is probably better in the long run for the handling of the pandemic than staunch refutation (then again their power is super limited too compared to murrikan checks and balances)

    In retrospective, I seem to understand now why there has never been a coup in American politics: the CIC is way too powerful to be decapitated. Therefore, coups fail almost instantly.

    And in Britain there's too much squabbling for any coup plotters to emerge.
    Ultima prophetiae, veni finis tempus;
    magnus ab integro saeclorum quod mortum. Finis magnus ordo.
    Iam redit Virgo Phaenomi regibus redeunt,
    nova progenies ad caelo surgit.
    Vestra puerorum, qui movere tempus ipsum, et rotam ferrea primum.
    Ac vestra lucis, omnes surgit futurum aureus, novo mundo nascens.
