    News & Experiences continued

    I felt the same way back in March when we totally shut down. I was going out for groceries once every two weeks and nothing more. I started to feel afraid to go ANYWHERE, and felt panicked if someone got close to me on the rare occasions when I did go out. I was able to deal with the...

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    Tink and her husband got a hot tub a couple of months ago. "Sex pond" is about right. I'd like a hot tub, but I am somewhat loathe to use theirs, since I have a general idea what goes on there. It's good to hear from you and know how you're doing.

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    When our Mayor told cottagers that the County was reopening, and they could now come to their cottages, he reminded them to stay in the City if they weren't well. We don't have an on-staff ER doctor in our local hospital. We don't have a ventilator either, which means if you need to be...

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    I think a lot of American corporations will keep employees on long enough to convert the bailout money to a grant, and then let them go.

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    Unfettered capitalism is also less stable, having more recessions, than blended economies. I'm deeply opposed to private profits and public losses. Especially when private citizens, who were the ones most harmed by the housing bubble, received no bailouts, and the privately owned corporations...

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread

    It's been reported that Trump will not be in the same room with Nancy Pelosi, which is why Mnuchin negotiated the bailout plan with the House, and not Trump. Negotiating police reform with the House and Senate would not go well for Trump. Trump has been taken to the cleaners by Nancy Pelosi...

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    All of the big airlines used their corporate tax cuts to fund stock buy backs. These private profits and public losses are just bullsh*t. Profits go to shareholders, losses are covered by taxpayers. Workers will have to settle for less. What is going to happen is that the larger corporations...

    ISU to propose expansion of Worlds fields; 2020 Worlds unlikely to be rescheduled

    I stand corrected, and thank you for that. What I should have said was that until Midori Ito, mobs of Japanese media and fans weren't following skaters around. But there also weren't plane loads of kids coming from Japan. Neither Japan nor China were even thought of as powerhouse skating...

    ISU to propose expansion of Worlds fields; 2020 Worlds unlikely to be rescheduled

    I always thought that this decision to limit the field at worlds was penny wise and pound foolish. It gave kids in the non-powerhouse nations little to no chance to ever compete internationally since GP assignments are largely based on marks and placements at the previous year's worlds. I've...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Why do you have a problem with "working class". My father worked in factory most of his adult life. As did my husband. I was the first of family had the opportunity to go to university. We were proud of being working class.

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    I would counter that the right wing media is the Billionaire Media, whose agenda is to keep the masses from getting together and voting in their own best interests and not theirs. FOX News and the Wall Street Journal are owned by Rupert Murdoch, promoting Republican policies to ensure low tax...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    There is a vast difference between "expressing support" for a country going through hell, and wanting to implement their policies. Venezuela has whipsawed between extreme right and left for generations, with more than a large dash of corruption tossed into the pot. Every time socialism is...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    I watched all the speeches after the Nevada Caucuses, and Bernie won this Canadian's heart utterly, in terms of his message. I am a middle of the road liberal here, who would NEVER vote NDP in my life, because they have completely unrealistic expectations of what government can or should do...

    Nevada Primary Democratic Debate: What Happens in Vegas Gets Hysterical on Twitter

    I hadn't thought of that. My thought was one of disappointment that there wasn't going to be a real convention. I thought it ridiculous that Trump, with 15% of primary votes was winning ALL of the delegates in the primarys in 2016. 85% of the voters didn't vote for him. 85% of the voters...

    Nevada Primary Democratic Debate: What Happens in Vegas Gets Hysterical on Twitter

    Bernie agreed to a brokered convention prior to the primary season starting. He favoured a brokered convention when Hillary had more delegates than he did. Now he's leading the polls (but not the delegates), he's opposed to it. You can't suck and blow at the same time. Hypothetical: If...
