trump says we can't have Biden as our President....

I know that it's all bluster for his idiot fans, but for a President - even a shithead like trump - to suggest this kind of thing is unheard of. And dangerous. He's planting poisoned seeds in the minds of the gullible.

"At a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, Trump spoke for over 90 minutes.
In addition to vowing that he will fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and accusations that Biden has performance-enhancing drugs injected in his ass, Trump threatened to call off the election by banning Biden from running."
“You can’t have this guy as your president,”
argued.
“You can’t have — maybe I’ll sign an executive order, you cannot have him as your president,” Trump argued as his supporters cheered."

I just saw that the little town of Lee Vining - next to Mono Lake in CA - has an AQI of 1289.

Help me out... numbers, and indeed business.... is not my strong area...

What IS the actual, real, honest to god, unemployment rate right now?

The BLS says 8.4% last month. That's U-3. U-6 is 14.2 (I understand what U-3 and U-6 is.)

Then I read this piece from Forbes with a lot of numbers that tell me that 8.4% is low. And maybe 14.2 is low, too. I hate it when people say the BLS is lying. That's tinfoil hat stuff. But ... WTF?

Did the economy and employment turn UP? How? Where is unemployment now, and where is it headed?

I just dipped my toe into the Freeper (stagnant) pool. Nothing about the Atlantic article. nt

trump vs. reality..

trump said that his actions in response to the virus “saved millions”. 

Meanwhile, in Reality-land:

A thousand Americans die every day from the virus…. a 9/11 every three days.

We have 5 million known cases of Coronavirus. And nobody knows the real number because trump has discouraged testing.

trump has encouraged - even threatened - states into “opening up”. And those states that did have seen spikes of cases and deaths.

trump has issued no national policy program on Covid 19. Just like he has no policy program for his “second term”… other than “more of the same”.
Projections show that by 1 December, 310,000 Americans will have died from the virus. That is more Americans than died in combat in all of WWII.

Germany… led by Angela Merkel - a scientist… has a death rate 1/48th of the US death rate. 

Norway’s death rate from the virus is 5 per 100,000 population. Ours is 56 per 100,000. 

US death rate is 4th highest in the world… behind only Peru, Chile, and Brazil. 

The US has 4% of the world population… and 22% of the Covid deaths.


And let’s not forget… trump said 31 times that the virus was a hoax, or would magically disappear. Soon.

Hey... all you "Spawns of Satan"....

Drop everything and watch this video from the Daily Show about the RNC.
Those people are nuttier than squirrel shit!

Mask question...

If I have 6 cloth masks, and rotate them every day... giving days off... will the virus die off in the 3-4 days I don't wear them.

I don't have a mask on long... I'm sticking close to home.

What does DU think.

Two worlds..

There are two different worlds out there... within the US.
I had NPR on, and medical experts were saying that we need a serious lockdown because the virus is out of control in many states, and a we need lot of mandatory distancing and mask rules.
Then... because I love to torture myself... I tuned into the local AM rightwing screamer station.
Within one minute.. my breakfast started to come up, so I had to move on... the resident whackjob said: "Masks are an attempt to get Americans to blindly obey the government." and "Lockdowns have been proven NOT to work."

And then there is this....

We are NEVER going to get any kind of handle on the virus.... or the economy.

Anybody else getting weird script on DU posts?

I read a post just now, and it looked like this...
"My bff�s son, who I�ve written here about a few times..."

Several others, too.

I did nothing to bring this about.

Any help?

I want to be the first to offer my wholehearted approval of Biden's VP pick.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ was my first choice for VP all along.

The other possibilities are great people, too, don't get me wrong.

But....

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ is the best choice.
