  1. The problem here is that this hearing should never have happened in the first place if we followed what Lindsey Graham had said he vowed to do several times the past few years. Feinstein calling it one of the best hearings she has been a part of and then hugging Graham, just makes no sense. It symbolizes the weaknesses of the dem party leadership to hold their ground and not let the other party get away with things like this. Why an 87 year old is still in congress with important leadership positions is beyond me. If she runs for re-election instead of retiring I hope the party decides to rally around a challenger in the primary.
  2. Well that was an incredibly disheartening and insulting conversation to read. Its called respecting people's life choices whether you agree with them or not. I think you should reflect on that and read up on the issue a bit because you clearly don't know what you are talking about.
  3. Joe Rogan is obviously extremely popular online, so a debate moderated by him is sure to be seen by a lot of people, specifically undecided voters and people who identify as apolitical. However, I question whether he can be neutral in his moderating. I also refuse to give the spotlight to a guy who has made transphobic remarks among many other problems. So my answer is no.
  4. I'd give a third party a better chance at winning DC than Trump lol. It's stunning to me that Nate only has it at 90% too
  5. You can't enforce people to wear a mask in their own house, where many parties and gatherings are being held. And you also can't require them to wear one out in restaurants, where a lot of spread also occurs. If you didn't require masks for people going to stores, or any other places indoors or within close proximity with others, then we would see a lot more cases than we do now. That has been evident in several analysis's and studies
  6. Perhaps I should rephrase what I said, I don't think mandating goggles would do much more to stop the spread on top of masks. Places that have mask mandates still have problems though, largely in part, because of parties and gatherings being held where masks are not being worn. When dining, masks are not worn, family and friend gatherings/parties do not have masks being worn, there is no way to enforce that. But without mask mandates, I don't doubt cases would be much higher. True, but flu season is when it is most rampant in communities (why else would they call it flu season?). We have seen that clearly the warm weather did not lead to covid to go away unlike what happens with the flu. It doesn't seem necessary to mandate masks in months where transmission of the cold and flu are rare.
  7. I don't think goggles or eye shields need to be mandated, I think as long as everyone is abiding by the face covering mandate that is sufficient enough to stop the spread. What I would say is people who get a medical exemption from wearing a mask should be required to use a face shield instead.
  8. I think if everyone wore a mask in public during flu season, that would be very good for public health. This pandemic hopefully is opening our eyes to some common sense measures to prevent illness spread, even those that aren't as serious.
  9. The "problems" you mention are all either false points or irrelevant. I hardly think the difficulty to communicate outweighs keeping people safe in any way. They do not decrease oxygen intake and that has been proven by many people. On the point that there is not much evidence they slow the spread, that is not true. People have been wearing some sort of mask to prevent illness from spreading for centuries. There have been numerous studies done showing at least some efficacy of masks on slowing COVID spread. In places with little cases, it makes sense to still require them because in case the virus does get introduced into the community, if you already had universal mask wearing, the chances of continued spread reduce considerably. I do think there is a strong tendency in people to refuse something if they are told they have to do it. So I am actually curious if more people would comply with mask wearing if it wasn't mandated as oppose to if it was. (I still think more people would choose not to wear it because they are fed to believe false info, so a mandate is necessary, but it would be interesting to see)
  10. She's only been fact checked on there 7 times, compared to over 500 times for Trump, and I would assume many others on that list as well. I think that is an important thing to point out. (in fact just one of her fact checks came from after 2018, and I think she has increased her knowledge considerably the past couple years)
  11. This is the best Joe Biden has sounded in a while. Really good speech so far.
  12. Obama had a great speech. Nice to be reminded of what a President is suppose to sound like. Harris is doing well too. Having the final three giving speeches be Warren, Obama, Harris was great. They all give such powerful speeches. This has definitely been the best night so far.
  13. Cuomo is the only person I have heard call it that.
  14. My only problem with Cuomo's speech is he repeated his dumb idea of calling it the European virus. It's a stupid counter to Trump calling it the Chinese virus. I don't find it clever at all.
