  1. Standard flu vaccines are highly ineffective, which is why so many people still get the flu every year. It sounds like this virus will be very similar based on reports (though that remains to be seen). But if that is the case, we will be living with it well into the future. Additionally, the CDC has come out and said that the vast majority of deaths have had complicating factors. That is not to say that all would have died without the virus, but a large chunk would have (not to mention the example of a car accident death being listed as a virus death). And then you have the arbitrary nature of
  2. In 2016, they had a similar opportunity in Alaska (a very libertarian friendly state) but completely ignored it. I would not be holding my breath for them to do something competent.
  3. Indeed. In fact, Frankfort was the only state capital in a non-secessionist state (at least officially) that was occupied by Confederate forces
  4. I have no idea if you would care, but there is evidence that Beshear has used state funds to attempt to slander, target, and squash those who do not agree with his actions (mainly focused on the religious community). Literally the definition of fascism.
  5. SO why should I wear a mask during this but not during a flu pandemic? The death rate in Kentucky is 1.5% and the majority are from long term care facilities. On my college campus, the probability of dying from the virus is lower than dying in a car accident. Rather than acting like humans can stop a virus from going around through arbitrary lockdowns and mandates (which have NOT stopped the spread), maybe we should focus on trying to protect the most vulnerable to the greatest extent possible. Oh, and if you go out into public, you assume the risks of doing so. If you only want to shop a
  6. Kentucky being a prime example of that. We've had record cases despite King Andy the Terrible's mask mandates (as well as others)
  7. Like others have mentioned, be careful about the polls in Nevada. I thought Trump would do better there in 2016 than ended up happening (one of the few meaningful states he underperformed in). It could very well go his way, but I wouldn't count on it.
  8. The parts that applied to the states (and their various ways of imposing segregation on the populous) where needed and acceptable. The parts applied to businesses (mainly Titles II and VII) were a major overreach by the federal government and are detrimental to the concept of freedom of association.
  9. I was conflicted on this. I fit in this category for many thing, but the slavery issue throws a wrench into things. Picking wither side would have some serious cons coming with it (in my mind).
  10. Very true. Certain leaders decide to use religion as a tool for power, riches, influence, etc. It's easy to say you can do something because God told you to do it. Difficult to argue against that one.
  11. I'd add one more category. Those who likely dislike Trump but cozy up to him publicly for policy reasons.
  12. The reactions to these story (especially from Twitter and Facebook) might overtake the actual story (whether true or not). It's not a good look for Biden coming down the stretch regardless. Whether that changes anything will have to be seen.
  13. Chief Justice ACB Confirm Gorsuch Block Kavanaugh
  14. Looking forward to seeing Cynthia Lummis in the Senate. She should be aligned with Rand Paul on a large number of issues.
  15. If Trump loses, the Establishment will attempt to rally and regain full control over the party (which they still heavily influence). Though the liberty wing is positioning itself for an attack against the establishment (though having 4 more years of Trump would help further organization). The Dems will continue to move left (as their 2 "moderate" nominees would have been knocked out by someone considered an absolutely terrible candidate).
