>You get the exact same thing out of a pistol with an even lighter, smaller frame at the ranges we're talking.
A carbine is significantly easier to aim and shoot than a handgun.
>You can also conceal carry a pistol outside your home, giving you discreet protection just about everywhere you go.
not every state allows CCW and you can own more than one gun. And a CCW handgun wouldn't be the first choice for HD for most people when a full sized handgun would be more comfortable, easy to shoot, and have a bigger mag.
>Pistols are also generally more economic than a rifle
nogunz detected
>and depending on the caliber will also have cheap ammunition that won't get squeezed as hard by potential wartime demands (the height of the Iraq/Afghan wars saw a significant drop in the availability of 5.56mm).
and 9mm doesn't get affected by wartime demands?
> but if you're buying a weapon explicitly for defeating intruders in your home a pistol is a better investment.
handguns are harder to get than ARs in most states as a lot of states have handgun permitting processes and require people to be 21+. Handguns are also more likely to be stolen and used in crimes
> On the other hand, if you just want to be tacticool an AR-15 and related platforms are fun, but don't trick yourself into believing you picked the most efficient home defense weapon in a majority of realistic cases. Get a pistol for defense, get a rifle for fun.
an AR is significantly better for HD. Try shooting a rifle and a handgun once in your life, no gunz.

>An AR is easier to shoot due to the stock and when your arms are extended the difference in barrel length of an AR and a handgun is negligible.
That's not at all true. It is not negligible. Barrel length is just as much a component in ballistics as the caliber and grain of a round. arget acquisition is also entirely different depending on barrel length and platform. Additionally, barrel length is not negligible when trying to maneuver indoors. It takes a lot of training to effectively maneuver indoors with a 16-18" barrel and even then the risk of getting your muzzle tripped up on door jambs, furniture or other household items is pretty large, depending on the size of your house.

>An AR is a lot easier to shoot.
This is also untrue. An AR is arguably harder to shoot than your standard handgun or shotgun overall as far as your average gun owner is concerned. There are a lot more moving parts therefore much more can go wrong. ARs are far more prone to misfires and jams, require more maintenance, and the space required to effectively operate one is not conducive to indoor engagements. I've got no problem with the 556 or 223 platform - I think AR pistols are fucking boss, but I would never recommend an AR for home defense in a standard size dwelling. High capacity handgun, AR pistol or shotgun is much more effective.

Do you own a gun? A 16 Ar is pretty short. Most people hold handguns with extended arms whereas you pull a rifle stock into your shoulder. And a rifle will be a lot easier to shoot.

>This is also untrue. An AR is arguably harder to shoot than your standard handgun or shotgun overall as far as your average gun owner is concerned.
You have never shot a gun in your life have you? Shotguns have a lot of recoil and a handgun is a lot harder to pick up the sights and keep your hands steady
>There are a lot more moving parts therefore much more can go wrong. ARs are far more prone to misfires and jams, require more maintenance, and the space required to effectively operate one is not conducive to indoor engagements.
ARs are literally designed to not malfunction. If they did the US government would never have adopted the M16 and cops would not be using ARs. ARs are simpler to operate than a shotgun because you can't short stroke an AR and they recoil a lot lighter. The idea that ARs are jamomatics is from the 1960s. Modern ARs (hell ARs from the 1970s) are extremely reliable.
> I've got no problem with the 556 or 223 platform -...recommend an AR for home defense in a standard size dwelling. High capacity handgun, AR pistol or shotgun is much more effective.
An AR carbine is fine and would be much easier to shoot than a pistol or shotgun, no gunz

I own a lot more than you, bruv. I work as armed security.

>Most people hold handguns with extended arms whereas you pull a rifle stock into your shoulder. And a rifle will be a lot easier to shoot.
You clearly have never trained with weapons before. The speed in which you can maneuver whatever environment you are in and bring your weapon up to firing position effectively is just as if not more important than how physically comfortable the gun is to shoot. I can tell you know nothing about guns because you say an AR is "easier" to shoot with zero nuance. Every weapon has its pros and cons depending on the situation in which you're using it.

>Shotguns have a lot of recoil and a handgun is a lot harder to pick up the sights and keep your hands steady
Different scenarios require different weapons. A shotgun is infinitely more effective in a small, enclosed space like a living room or bedroom than a full on 16-18' AR. If you had ever stepped foot into a firearm training course I'm sure you would know this.

>ARs are literally designed to not malfunction.
You're a fucking moron. Every weapon is designed "not to malfunction" but they do. All the time. I've taken a 6 hour course on nothing but dealing with malfunctions in a live fire situation. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

>An AR carbine is fine and would be much easier to shoot than a pistol or shotgun
The next time you're standing in your bedroom or any other small room in your house I'd like for you turn off the light and see how quickly you can pick up an AR, chamber it, acquire a target then quickly reposition then reacquire another target. After you've done that I'd like for you to see how well you can do the same thing with a gun half the size - like a short barrel shotgun or revolver. Once you've done this come back so you can tongue my asshole for how right I was and how wrong you were.

>I...ty.
My dad works at nintendo you britbong reddit spacer
>You c...t.
an AR is easier to get up to firing position because it has a stock so you can get to the sights easier and there are a lot more mounting options for red dots on ARs than there are optics ready handguns, and an AR is easier to find the dot on because once again, you have a stock to rotate up.
>D...is.
You type like a reddit faggot. The minimum legal length for a shotgun is 18 inches. Shotguns are longer than AR carbines. They also recoil a lot more and many of them require pumping, which you can short stroke. m193 (to say nothing of soft and hollow points) is devastating out of a 16 inch barrel under 100 m. See Kenosha and how that bicep literally got blown off.
>You're a fucking moron. Every weapon is designed "not to malfunction" but they do. All the time. I've taken a 6 hour course on nothing but dealing with malfunctions in a live fire situation. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

>The next time you're standing in your bedroom or any other small room in your house I'd like for you turn off the light and see how quickly you can pick up an AR, chamber it, acquire a target then quickly reposition then reacquire another target.
pretty fucking easy because it has an optic on.
>After you've done that I'd like for you to see how well you can do the same thing with a gun half the size - like a short barrel shotgun
You do know those are regulated by the NFA right? Minimum shotgun barrel is 18 inches, 2 inches longer than a rifle

Why would you use something not optics ready like a revolver in current year?

Great news guys. Just as I'd thought several months ago, the pandemic is going to wind itself down with the current presidency, and wiggle it's unwelcome arse out the door. Huzzah lads and lady's, huzzah indeed!

>Even as science began to unravel many of the virus’s mysteries—how it spreads, how it tricks its way into cells, how it kills—a fundamental unknown about vaccines hung over the pandemic and our collective human fate: Vaccines can stop many, but not all, viruses. Could they stop this one?

Truly this is a most blessed day, as coronavirus will wrap up nearly 1 year to the day that it became known to the world, and although none of us have seen people flopping about on sidewalks convulsing unto death (remember the 'leaked' videos from China last December?) we can all rest easier. The global order hath been saved!

I shouldn't be spreading paranoia like this - TBH, the total information awareness system this would require doesn't really exist yet, pretty much gotta be a terrorist suspect for them to take such measures, and even if all internet traffic is getting dumped to a server farm in Texas, most people's information is protected by information overload. Even contact tracing is more Q&A in the states than technology, even if the CDC may do some mass movement studies now and again.

That's true, at least until we get an expert system of a quasi-AI that can actually correlate all that data in a useful fashion. So if Monika gets any smarter, just remember: Just Monika.

The vaccine isn't going to be rolled out quickly enough for that. There will be like a billion doses through the whole of next year. Two doses are needed, so across the whole planet 500 million can be vaccinated. Immunity may only last 3-6 months. By the time we have the required 6/7 people vaccinated for the virus to extinct itself, it will have spun off a mutation which is unaffected by the current vaccines. You can't effectively immunize against coronaviruses with current technology.

the article has several errors, so basing comments on old stuff i read:
the article mentions oxygen therapy in hyperbaric oxygen chambers were used
in simple language that is increased oxygen at higher than normal pressure
it mentioned that the test subjects telomeres lengthened, which is important
the first sort of mistake was
"“Since telomere shortening is considered the ‘Holy Grail’ of the biology of aging.”"
telomere shortening happens automatically when cells divide, it's sort of buffer dna protecting the data dna from damage, when they get too short further divisions cause dna/data corruption, so building those protective telomeres back up would in fact be one of the "holy grails"
the next error is:
>>
>>734248
"The scientists, which include doctors from the Shamir Medical Center, believe the pressurized chamber triggered brief oxygen shortages, which caused cell regeneration."
it should be obvious high pressure oxygen provides a abundance of oxygen
it did get right that killing senescent cells was important
drawing from old literature the senescent cells are ones that already have damage, natural apoptosis did not kick in, but a secondary mechanism to hibernate the cell kicked in to keep them from replicating and causing problems, the theory that further dna damage from radiation, sunlight and such might eventually add further errors and turn the senescent cells cancerous. old research says normal cells can make better use of antioxidants to protect themselves while senescent cells and maybe cancer cells are more vulnerable to the hyperbaric oxygen
the anti-aging, telomere lengthening was the main new point in the research
speculation, but i think a good guess; telomerase, lightly cooked eggs, or the right vitamins might make sure the body has the right repair tools handy for the telomere repair and may enhance the repair effect
might be worth looking at deep sea divers who use helium-oxygen for parallel results

The son of President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr.., tested positive for COVID-19 this week, and is experiencing no symptoms, his spokesman told media outlets late Friday.

The spokesman said that Trump Jr. has been “quarantining out at his cabin” since the positive COVID-19 test at the start of the week.

“He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines,” he said.

Trump Jr., 42, is the latest in the president’s circle to contract the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly referred to as the novel coronavirus, following President Trump’s diagnosis on Oct. 2. By Oct. 12, the president, who experienced mild symptoms, had recovered, testing negative for two consecutive days, and appeared at a rally in Florida.

In recent days, tragic news has been received about Ukrainians who were sick with coronavirus. Our fellow citizens are dying. But not because they could not be saved, but because of the lack of oxygen in hospitals.

On November 15, Olga Grabar, a teacher at the Zhytomyr State Technological University, was in intensive care with a covid. From there, the Ukrainian woman complained to the mayor about the lack of oxygen for patients.

"I know you can do anything in this city! I don't know how we can get through the night now, but in the morning there is no oxygen at all! I'm lying here myself, the oxygen has been turned off 8 times today! Poor doctors in intensive care do not know that make!" - wrote Grabar.
Two days later, on November 17, she died in Zhytomyr City Hospital No. 1. Olga Grabar was 39 years old.

"There is no oxygen. We have a basic hospital for admitting patients from the Chernivtsi region, and there are only four oxygen points and a mass of broken concentrators that overheat and do not work. People turn blue, suffocate, and you cannot help them, all the oxygen has been distributed, and there is simply nowhere to connect new hospitalized people. It got to the point that people come with their cylinders - they get it through friends or even bring an industrial one. There is no oxygen distribution, which was quite realistic to do in seven months of the epidemic, there are not enough concentrators that could also be purchased ( 30-50 thousand hryvnia apiece - Ed.) ", - said Olga Kobevko.

A similar situation was described to the media by the Odessa volunteer Ekaterina Nozhevnikova.

"In September, the patients really fought for oxygen, tearing each other's masks. There was a big problem, there weren't enough concentrators for everyone. Power has gone for 8 months, I'm sorry," said the volunteer.

Apple wants to water down key provisions of the bill, which would hold U.S. companies accountable for using Uighur forced labor, according to two congressional staffers

Apple lobbyists are trying to weaken a bill aimed at preventing forced labor in China, according to two congressional staffers familiar with the matter, highlighting the clash between its business imperatives and its official stance on human rights.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act would require U.S. companies to guarantee they do not use imprisoned or coerced workers from the predominantly Muslim region of Xinjiang, where academic researchers estimate the Chinese government has placed more than 1 million people into internment camps. Apple is heavily dependent on Chinese manufacturing, and human rights reports have identified instances in which alleged forced Uighur labor has been used in Apple’s supply chain.

The staffers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks with the company took place in private meetings, said Apple was one of many U.S. companies that oppose the bill as it’s written. They declined to disclose details on the specific provisions Apple was trying to knock down or change because they feared providing that knowledge would identify them to Apple. But they both characterized Apple’s effort as an attempt to water down the bill.


“What Apple would like is we all just sit and talk and not have any real consequences,” said Cathy Feingold, director of the international department for the AFL-CIO, which has supported the bill. “They’re shocked because it’s the first time where there could be some actual effective enforceability.”

A Chinese newspaper article from May 2017 covered the transfer of Uighur labor to the O-Film factory. The article put a positive spin on the story, referring to the alleged forced laborers as “urban and rural surplus laborers” who had “gone out of their homes to work in the mainland to make money, and create a happy life with their hard-working hands.”

The Australian report, citing a local government document from September 2019, alleges that 560 Xinjiang laborers were transferred to the Henan province and that some of those workers ended up in Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory, otherwise known as “iPhone City,” where half of Apple’s flagship products are assembled.

The report also cites a 2018 speech by a Chinese government official announcing the transfer of workers from Xinjiang to the Hubei Yihong factory, which the report alleges is the parent company of an Apple supplier. According to the report, the factory’s website said it supplied GoerTek, which makes Apple’s AirPods. In the speech, the official referred to the labor transfers as a “green channel” and ordered workers to be “grateful” to the Chinese Communist Party.

“Xinjiang migrant workers must regard the factory as their home and strive to be outstanding employees,” the official said. The factory also allegedly supplies other American electronics makers like Facebook’s Oculus, Microsoft and Google, according to the report. GoerTek didn’t respond to a request for comment. Frank Shaw, Microsoft’s vice president of corporate communications, said the company “determined that O-Film and Hubei Yihong are not suppliers for our devices nor for our cloud hardware businesses.”
>>
He added that Microsoft investigated alleged labor violations at Foxconn but found no wrongdoing. “We do not tolerate forced labor in our supply chain,” he said.

The Australian report also cites a 2018 article from Xinjiang Economic News, which reported that 544 Uighur students were transferred to a subsidiary of Highbroad Advanced Material, a maker of LCD and OLED components. The report alleges that Highbroad is a supplier of BOE Technology Group, a maker of OLED screens for Apple, according to Apple’s supplier list.
https://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/pdf/Apple-Supplier-List.pdf
BOE didn’t respond to a request for comment.

In August, the Tech Transparency Project uncovered shipping records showing Apple was importing cotton T-shirts from a company in Xinjiang that Congress imposed sanctions on for its alleged use of forced labor. Apple, at the time, said it does not currently import shirts from the region.

Apple has been implicated in several alleged labor abuses over the years.

“I’m not entirely surprised that Apple would be involved in trying to water down legislation that concerns protection of human rights in China,” said Maya Wang, a China researcher at Human Rights Watch. Nevertheless, she called Apple’s lobbying effort “unconscionable.”

Republican lawmakers from Michigan issued a statement Friday night in defense of their state's election process after a closely watched meeting with President Trump.

The meeting at the White House, just days away from Michigan's election certification deadline, was criticized as being an inappropriate attempt by the president to interfere while his campaign lawyers seek to overturn election results in the state.

The White House insisted the get-together was "not an advocacy meeting" and cast it as routine.

In their joint statement after Friday's meeting, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield said they used the meeting to seek additional coronavirus relief for the state. They added that they had "not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan."

"We will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors," the statement said.

"Michigan's certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation," the statement continued. "Allegations of fraudulent behavior should be taken seriously, thoroughly investigated, and if proven, prosecuted to the full extent of the law. And the candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections."

The shadow looming over the meeting was the state's anticipated certification of the presidential election results on Monday, which are expected to show President-elect Joe Biden as the clear victor in the state. Attorneys for Trump's campaign have sought to undermine the state's election results, falsely alleging voter impropriety, particularly in the Democratic-leaning Wayne County.

Well, he CLAIMS no one told him, and thus was operating under the WHO's assessment, even though it can only report what China tells it, as unlike us, they have no intelligence there, hence his anger at the WHO (not that their performance has been exemplary otherwise).

I suppose there's a chance that people in his administration have just learned not to give the king news he doesn't want to hear though - in which case, incompetence all around.

Wouldn't be the first time that's happened though. The collapse of the USSR came as quite a shock to the US, due to a lot of reports being buried that didn't fit the desired narrative.

Over 50% of the waiting for the vaccine we've been doing has been waiting for tests. They're _part_ of the development process. And it makes sense to relax standards during an emergency because companies SHOULD be paid billions of dollars to produce five or ten different kinds of vaccines and shovel them out the door even if half of them turn out not to work later because they're not every single one of them going to be ineffective.

The same brainless logic was used by the CDC to suppress coronavirus tests: making sure everything got approved and done the "right way" instead of getting more shit out faster. It would have been a hundred times more effective to let every halfway competent biotech firm and their dog shit out coronavirus tests with even 80% accuracy than to do... whatever it is we're doing now.

Again, yes, this doesn't mean Trump did a good job. He's dogshit. But there are a few things that he did that weren't good and if they failed it's because he didn't do enough of whatever it was.

Looks like the Pifzer vaccine is going to be a bust.
So of course naming it after Trump would be fitting.

A coalition of 20 federal, state and tribal law enforcement entities descended on a network of Shiprock farms on Monday, capping a months-long investigation into illegal marijuana cultivation and possible labor trafficking on the Navajo Nation.

Throughout the day, teams of law enforcement officers — including agents from the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Drug Enforcement Agency — removed marijuana plants by the thousands, loading them onto dump trucks and burying them in large pits.

Law enforcement will not yet comment on the volume, but San Juan County Sheriff Shane Ferrari described the seizure as an amount that will “knock you back in your chair.” Navajo Nation police had previously reported that only five of 36 cannabis farms remained in operation; if true, the enormous piles of plants confiscated this week would be only a fraction of what was growing a few months ago.

correct. i forgot what specific act of regulation was put into place, but there is indeed a regulatory law limiting all federal actions on indian land to purely census related actions. if indians want to do what they want, they have every right to do so.

>>733940
Eh, personally, I'd draw the line a human sacrifice, but I'm almost surprised we allow indians on reservations, which are quasi-sovereign territory, to vote. Given that we do, and I believe we also grant them American citizenship, we arguably treat the reservations more like member states than independent nations, and thus yes, sadly, they would be arguably subject to the retardation that is federal drug scheduling.

One of the leaders of the Proud Boys, the far-right group that President Donald Trump told to “stand back and stand by” during a presidential debate, is trying to rebrand the organization as explicitly white supremacist and antisemitic.
Kyle Chapman, the founder of a “tactical defense arm” of the Proud Boys known for engaging in street violence, claimed in a message on the encrypted chat app Telegram that he has staged a “coup” against the current leader of the Proud Boys — a Black man named Enrique Tarrio.
“We will confront the Zionist criminals who wish to destroy our civilization,” Chapman wrote after using other bigoted language. “We recognize that the West was built by the White Race alone and we owe nothing to any other race.”
Chapman also wrote that he has renamed the group the Proud Goys, referring to the Jewish term for non-Jews that neo-Nazis have tried to appropriate and use to symbolize their antisemitism.
The move comes as the Proud Boys are preparing to protest with other right-wing groups in Washington, DC, on behalf of Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that the presidential election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud.
It is unclear how Chapman’s call has been received by others in the group. Other Proud Boys channels on Telegram have not reflected the changes he wants to institute, and a message from the administrator of one said, “No, we are not the Proud Goys. No, Kyle didn’t stage a coup,” and then referred to him with an ableist slur.

>Now, state party leaders are looking to replace the representative-elect, Aaron Coleman.

>Aaron Coleman's election to the Kansas House of Representatives would have been remarkable for a young candidate trying to unseat an incumbent. But it has instead left state Democratic leaders saying that they will take "every necessary step" to ensure that Mr. Coleman is not seated in the State Legislature.

>Mr. Coleman's campaign over the summer was overshadowed by his admissions that he had sent revenge porn and bullied girls online in middle school.

>In August, Mr. Coleman, 20, won a Democratic primary against a seven-term incumbent, Stan Frownfelter, by 14 votes. Mr. Coleman initially planned to withdraw as his party's nominee but then ran in the general election. Mr. Frownfelter ran as a write-in candidate in the general election and lost, The Kansas City Star reported.

>"I want to let my policy viewpoints to be what people know me for," Mr. Coleman said in an email on Saturday.

>Since Mr. Coleman's election, Democratic leaders have distanced themselves from him and are looking to ensure that he is not seated, said Tom Sawyer, the Kansas House minority leader.

>The Associated Press reported that party leaders took this position after Mr. Coleman made comments on Twitter that they perceived as threatening to the state's governor, Laura Kelly, a Democrat.

>A political operative provided The A.P. with a screen shot of one of Mr. Coleman's tweets, which has since been deleted, in which he said Ms. Kelly would face an "extremely bloody" Democratic primary race in two years.

LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Toilet paper aisles are emptying again as COVID-19 curfews and shutdowns in states from California to New York send pandemic-weary shoppers on a new scramble for essentials.


Walmart WMT.N on Friday said it was "seeing pockets of lower than normal availability" for toilet paper and cleaning supplies in some communities as infections rage virtually unchecked across most of the United States.

As of Friday afternoon, 22 states have imposed restrictions aimed at decreasing spread of the virus - giving rise to a new round of panic buying from shoppers and purchase limits from retailers including Target TGT.N and Kroger KR.N, the nation's largest supermarket chain.

Shoppers in a half dozen cities around the United States told Reuters that disinfecting wipes were sold out at discount retailers like Walmart and Costco COST.O, as well as at Cerberus Capital-owned grocery chains Albertsons and Vons.

“Walmarts are still mostly out of Lysol wipes, and toilet paper is out again,” said Whitley Hatcher, 31, a collections specialist in Tucson, Arizona.

“Oddly though, at places like Walgreens and Dollar Tree you can find what you need. I think people are seeing the empty shelves at bigger stores and panic buying,” Hatcher said.

It's so ridiculous. I've been stocking some cheap durable food (rice, lentils, noodles, flour, canned tomatoes etc) because a friend of mine got quarantined for 2-3 weeks and spend an awful lot of money on delivery service food.

But toilet paper is really the last thing I'd buy, especially when panic buyers have already grabbed all the cheap stuff and you have to get the brand stuff.
>>
I understand why people who miss out on something get mad at panic buyers get mad about it. But I also understand why people do it: if you don't get there first, someone else might take what you need. You don't know how much you need so you overcompensate. Personal survival always takes priority over others

I keep shitting my pants reading about covfefe-19, so this keeps down my use of toilet paper( increases my need for detergent though)

I went out to buy catfood last night. Three different stores (Petsmart, Target, Shoprite) in my area had their supplies of petfood decimated. Almost all of the dry food had all the smaller bags (8 pounds & under) completely or nearly sold out. The really shit products and the really expensive products still had stuff left, and still large 20 and 50 pound bags available. Similar story with canned wet foods: affordable common types & flavors sold out, weird shit & super-premium boutique brands & flavors still some left (all shit my cats won't eat anyway). Dog food was almost as bad, but slightly better since those shelves usually have quite a bit more by volume than the catfood section.

Casually walked around the stores looking for general items. Some places (cleaning supplies, toilet paper, some long-term dry goods foods) are hard hit. Freezers full of turkeys that nobody is buying.

Bunkering down in the Philadelphia region. It's getting pretty scary in these parts. I'm mostly set (apart for fresh produce) for the next three to four months. Probably won't start getting desperate until about February, assuming I can get almost nothing between now & then.

And, yeah, I've been buying a big 24- or 48-roll TP sack about every other or third week since May. Unless we get hit with dysentery or something like, we should be good 'til the Spring even if we can't get anything after today. None of us will be eligible for any vaccine until at least March, even if it's available by then. Too many other "important people" in line ahead of us.

In my local neighborhood there are about 10,000 people. At least 100 caught COVID during and since August. That we know of. Some people have their houses closed off to visitors, they've even blocked their driveways. Local stats for our country indicate there should be about 500 or more people with it in our local population. Just, nobody is talking to anyone else, so we really can't tell what's going on.

Man, fuck the sheeple normies who do this shit. We're a family of 4 and have never even come close to running out but people are freaking the fuck out again. The irony is if you go to your local grocery and take like 80% of the yellow mustard off the shelf and push the cart into a corner, people will see this shit and there will be a run on yellow mustard- someone who doesn't even need it will buy the last 3 off the shelf and then people will start buying brown mustard because "oh shit" and organic and then anything else that looks like mustard when the mustard they have probably will last them for a year+ or they don't even really eat it. People are fucking stupid with this shit.

Also saw some str8 fag out with his daddy at ikea last night just berating this woman for wearing her mask off her nose and he was in fucking full flame bitch mode. I would have stood up for her except he wasn't wrong, he was just being unreasonably cruel about it. It was like 10min to close and everybody in line was acting like they might not get to check out if the store closed before the line moved.

tl;dr: people are bean fucking stupid /blog

"Fox News sucks! Fox News sucks! Fox News sucks!"

Those words were chanted in the streets of Washington, DC, this past weekend -- not by hordes of angry liberals but by disenchanted supporters of President Donald Trump.

For more than two decades, Fox News has conditioned its audience to distrust news that collides with its worldview or theirs.

Inconvenient facts have been dismissed and blamed on the "liberal media" or the "deep state" or one of the many other boogeymen favored by the right at any particular time.

But now that strategy could be catching up to the conservative cable channel, with rising competition from networks such as Newsmax and OAN, which have positioned themselves as Trumpier than Fox.

Indeed, Fox finds itself in a precarious position.

On one hand, the network needs to maintain a semblance of having a serious news operation and its news anchors have acknowledged the reality that Trump lost the election to Joe Biden.

>Democrat present numerous counties with unheard of participation rates. Many exceeding 100%. Some exceeding 200%!

These are in states like Wisconsin which have same-day voter registration, so when there are a lot of first-time voters like in this election the number of votes cast relative to previously registered voters skyrockets. The same thing happens in every high turnout election.
